I hated the updates. So turned them off and never get updates any more!! Makes me happy.
But now, the only issue my Laptop and I are having is the fan. It doesn't seem to do as good a job as it once did and is loud. Not to mention my computer gets a little hot when I run many things at the same time.
i love my computers! they may be getting older (5+ years),but i understand that older things need to be cared for, so i don't mind that they may be a little slow or i can't do as many things on them any more or that i have to reboot a little too often.
As well as my computer works, in it's age it's experienced some minor software issues, as well as hardware damage because well im a student and a clumsy one to boot so my computer gets knocked around a bit from time to time.
Currently the battery life is shot, the track pad no longer works so i have to use a wireless mouse, and the backlight is "iffy" to say the least. I've served me well, and i keep telling myself that i will reformat it in hopes that it will start running a little better but i never do.
