What bookmarks are you missing? IE favorites will be under C:/windows. old/Users/your Name/Favorites. Click on Organize to Select All and drag the group to your new User Favorites folder.
Yes, it's good. I was trying to be really careful. At first my heart was beating like a racehorse.
Lol! In fear of messing up.
But hey, I guess that's how some of us learn.

Yes, I did see the Windows.old folder there.
The size of this folder is huge. My C:drive was almost full when it crashed.
I didn't have much space left to play with.
I am not sure what is missing at the moment...
O.K. I will investigate after I do a few more of these Updates.
I am doing 15 @ a time with Restart in between.

Sounds like a plan. Hang in there.

Well, I'm finally done with the Updates - Important and Optional. That was a lot of Updates.
A few more might straggle in I suppose...
Everything seems to be going well, except things aren't looking 'Crisp' for lack of better words and the font looks tiny ... but I'm happy!
Going to check drivers now.

What display driver do you have now? Compare it to the latest on the Support Downloads webpage for your model HP.

You will need the model extension for HP 2000-xxxx then browse to it here: HP Customer Support | HP® Support. I had asked you for the full model number earlier and you said you'd report it back but I don't see it. I assume you found it so you'd have your wireless driver in your backup to get online if needed.

When you have the latest Display driver, rightclick on a blank area of the desktop to choose Screen Resolution and make sure you have the highest resolution for best clarity. At the same location you can increase the DPI percentage so that fonts and icons appear larger. A good start is 113%.

In your browser, once you open each page hold the Cntrl key and use the _ or + keys or mouse wheel to fill the screen with the image. The browser will eventually remember most of your pages settings.

The Display adapter says: INTEL(R) HD GRAPHICS

Do you get a crisp enough resolution when you set the Screen Resolution with that driver at highest, adjust DPI to where icons are big enough, adjust web pages to fill the frame?

If not compare it to the Display driver on the HP webpage. If it is newer then try it out.

Yes, I did Greg. I sent you a private message with the model and the SIN.
Then I sent you a message and told you I went to the HP site and downloaded 'ALL' the drivers HP had for this specific model.
Yes, you are correct. The first thing I did after installation, was get the wireless from the HP folder I have...so I could get on line quick.
I have all the HP Drivers in a folder on my desk top.

This is why its important to keep all of the help in the thread and not via message. Others will benefit from everything being here.

What Graphics driver does HP offer for latest? I would not replace the one Win7 gave you unless it is more recent and after comparison you like it better.

Which drivers are still missing in Device Manager.

Back tomorrow.

O.K. gregrocker. It's good to go I think. I just needed to set the font @ 125%.
The webpages look OK now.

Yes, you are correct. I understand that it helps others too. I learn quite a bit this way.
Sorry. At the time I just didn't want to put my SIN out there that's all.

Printer "out of paper" error
I have an HP Deskjet F4280, and as of yesterday, 7 is saying that the printer is out of paper, when it clearly isn't. The funny thing is, I installed the printer in XP Mode as well, and it prints fine from there. Strange issue. Has anybody ever encountered this?
