not responding.... (what isnt)?
win 3.1 aand xp could not handle it. vista could shut the program down. (you arent supposed to install from within windows but boot from the dvd)
Windows 7 64. is worse than 3.1! (3.1 is decades old things change and having used both win 7 is far better)
it ends up snarling the whole computer and has to be powered down with the power button.
have 2 computers - both toshiba laptops both Windows 7 64. one connects to the internet, the other never has. (this is a different problem)
both have the same problem. (what problem cant install, or cant connect---not the same)
sometimes they get to the 'logging off' or 'shutting down' screen - but it sits there for hours just showing the words and doing nothing - going nowhere.( you are running hardware that is I suspect "older" and that is the primary problem on both)
task manager is no use here either
other than buying an apple - is there a solution? (buy an apple, buy a pc either would work, and given that you can run Apples on Pc's, whats the difference now?)
