Then you started finding strange anomalies which may or may not be related so I remind you that you failed the very most basic step to Clean Reinstall, and that we prefer to do it right here at the top site on the web for this specialty.
For this you presume to upbraid my manner as though I am under any obligation to cater to your preferences.
I get along fine with those who care to learn, don't ask for help and then quibble with it.
Not to belabor a point, but; I simply posted and wasn't looking for advice. Hence the statement more of a "blog" but feel free to comment statement. Not a solicitation for advice, but a friendly invitation to talk.
You returned on the first post with you should have done a clean install and then this took off an running.
I didn't "ask for advice and then quibble about it". You offered it and I thanked you for it, then went my own way.
Then came a couple other posts pointing out what I was doing wrong when, in fact, i was doing what was required to get my system working. IE: updating drivers. I had lost functions of devices because windows had installed a more generic version. The usb key board is one example; no media center, no shortcut buttons, no mouse auto scroll, etc.
If you don't like that I didn't follow your route then so be it, the world is full of different ways to do things. Some right, some wrong and some just different.
If that doesn't sit well with you then maybe we should just agree to disagree, digitally shake hands, part ways here and call it a wash rather than get into some kind of internet argument. I have no desire for that sort of thing.
Or maybe we just got off on the wrong foot. It just life and it happens sometimes.
Either way, as far as I'm concerned; No harm, no foul.
