In the package was the Office 365 which it wanted you to buy, very expensive indeed and difficult to prevent it activating its ? 30 day trial.
Added to which the manufacturers own software wanted to update.
I was also part of the problem in that I had not done any major software installation for some years and was preparing to go away on holiday for 5 weeks.
My old laptop was giving up the ghost and I needed to transfer all the files over. Not quite panic stations, but getting there.
If I had bought the laptop from a computer shop it would have all been set up, but would have cost about £75 to £ 275 more with the software that I require. I did manage to get the additional software free through family thank goodness.
We live and learn, technology is moving on at a rapid pace and getting far more complicated especially for us older folk. Being left behind comes to mind.
