Hey Prinny,

Why don't you backup everything you need, download Ubuntu Linux, wipe you computer clean and start fresh with a great, easy to use distro of Linux. I did this about a year ago and I haven't looked back. Soooooooo much better than Windows, as long as you don't need Windows for particular software. But even then, there is an equivalent (and usually free) piece of software available to get you going. All of the devices in my home are Linux based.

Two Android phones, two Android tablets & my laptop are all Linux based and talk to each other with ease. I even found a way to wirelessly print from all my devices even though my printer is not officially compatible in that way.

Just my 2.
