  1. This is a new computer that has not been used very much since I bought it with Win 8 and the understanding that I would get Win 10 for free when available. Now that I started to try to use this computer I have reports that 1246 issues or problems exists. Some drivers out of date and need replacing for another fee. This along with other problems, including some operator knowledge and age making it almost useless for me

  2. Thank you very much for this – I was wondering about the file and your succinct and clear instructions were very helpful
