  1. On my laptop I have spybot search and destroy. When I click on fix the problems it says I have to be an adminstrator to do it? Thing is I am on my computer and it even says it on user accounts. I am not sure what the deal is? On my PC it's fine.. (Speaking of my desktop PC, It wouldn'tg go beyond windows welcome screen so I had to do a factory reset..,.thanks to googling how to fix it, even in safe mode it wouldn't do anything).
  2. Hey there, I'm debating with myself around the issue of buying a new laptop/tablet. I saw Asus's new transformer (Android, quad core), which can be connected to a keyboard, but for the same price I can get a pretty good laptop. I'm looking for a computer to use in studies, so there are some features I really like about the tablet: * strong battery * camera - which should come in really handy for easy scanning of document and articles to read on the road * ease of reading long docs and watching lectures. * really light and easy to carry around What I'm scared of: * not using standard Office (pretty important for handing in papers) * not as convenient as a laptop for writing long docs (critical for homework) * processor weakness (relative to a laptop of a similar price) A shorter list, of cons - but they seem to me to be quite crucial... Any suggestions/advice? Thanks, Nelson
  3. I have a Toshiba laptop in which the hard drive died. I brought it in to a local store and they said it would be about ~$200 to replace and install the new one - now just based off that I would rather buy a new laptop because it would only be a couple hundred more. Anyways, i know a little bit about computers, but is it difficult to replace the hard drive myself? What about transferring the old data to the new one - is that a difficult process that only a detailed tech can handle? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
