Photo taken on my walk yesterday evening...actually thought it would rain..
Well the computer I got for Christmas from my hubby last one week, crashed a few times ...
said I had to reboot quite a few times..A friend said I must take it back straight away, so
as soon as I could I did..The good news is that the store gave me a new one, except I did
NOT take the same make I got a HP ...still with windows to get it set up again, which is taking
me ages.
This photo was taken with my iPhone...

Exif: F Number: 2.4, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/1800 seconds, Flash: did not fire, auto mode, ISO: 50, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 4.28 mm, Model: iPhone 4S

I hope someone on BP can give you some great tips to speed you along. If you hate the windows 8.1 there is a free shell you can download to give you a Windows 7 Start Menu again...I can locate one for you if you want it. I am dreading setting up my new lap top. Best of luck with all of it Avril. This is one great photo and to think it came from your iPhone. Wow! I am in awe of this!! #11222608

So sorry to hear it. I have a built in pop-up blocker and I can't remember how I have or got it. Maybe it's a setting. Wish I could help!! xx #11222990

A wonderful Aussie image Avril! That summer grass looks like it needs a few showers of rain!

Good luck with your computer, I know the feeling well, but unfortunately I cannot help you. I am not all that computer savvy myself! #11223046

Looks great, Avril!
I can sympathise with the new computer problems. Hate to change systems etc #11223852

I can relate, after having Windows XP for years I finally upgraded my 10 year old HP computer for a refurbished HP with windows 7. Now that most of my programs and games have been loaded and are finally working, I am just getting used to the new system. One thing I am really liking is the new PS CS 6 that a friend sent me. Now I can use all the new filters from NIK and Topaz that I could not install with my antique PS CS 2 :-) I put this off for years, upgrading my old HP until there was nothing else my computer guy could do to it...when Microsoft Windows Xp support ended, I still kept trying to use it. Love HP! Don't worry, in a couple of months you will be an old pro :-) Love the atmosphere of your image too! #11225261

There is an add on called Ad-Block if you are using Google Chrome that blocks most pop ups :-) #11225262

You caught this beautiful scene with a PHONE? Avril, between your phone and your artistic skills, maybe you should forget about the stress of the computer and simplify your life. Just kidding ~ I hope by now you've got things humming, and the "challenges" of setting up and learning 85K new things is in your rear-view mirror. #11230895
