You can help us to help you by filling in your System Specs.

Here's how:

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

========================================

Please run MalwareBytes (link in my sig).

is this safe? Like i said in first post, i am not computer smart. I dont want to do anything that would make me lose my pictures forever. If i download these, it wont copy over my pictures will it? Do you think i should take it somewhere or try to do this myself. Any help in this matter is GREATLY appreciated!!!
