Windows 7: Windows 7 Starter SNPC OA, Whats the story?

Windows 7 Starter SNPC OA, Whats the story?

I (just this week) recieved about 25 computers, including about 20 older laptops. One is a "HP Mini" with Windows 7 starter, sp 1. (thats what it sez) I cant get 'my computer' on the desktop, says thats not possible in 'personalization' for this version. I cant figure out how to even open the 'c:\' drive/folder. What gives? Only been playing with it for an hour or two last night. I'd really like to have "my comp" on desktop, really like being able to have c:/ accessable. Any way to do this? Some upgrade?

(Besides the comps, I got, well, about 10 lbs of memory modules, (easier to measure that way!), from earlier ram to ddr 2&3. (no sipps, tho).

Bunch of Toshibas, Viaos, Dell, etc. This guy took care of client comps/upgrades, etc. One laptop is a Hitachi with a 722 meg hdd, ram measured in megs, & win 95 installed, when I turned it on, the anti-virus box popped up with message 'Its been 7228 days since you ran a virus scan'! works, but s l o w as can be, I forgot just how slow they used to be. A few work with ext monitors as screen died, etc.

Anyway, its the HP Mini I am mainly curious in right now. Ideas?

Thanks -corne-
