Microsoft, Apple, Adobe

I am home alone and very much need to vent.......I have chosen YOU to hear my problems!!

I told you about my purchase of Windows 8.  I like the looks of the screen, I like the speed of the system.   OK that's 2 likes, now for the dislikes!

I cannot open my ITunes Library.  Now that's a big one.  I like my music and love adding new songs to our ipods, my ipad, and my phone.  I googled this problem and the answers ranged from, uninstall iTunes and reinstall to no, they aren't compatible at all. I opted to try this, uninstall, CAN'T find the program on the uninstall screen!!  Then there was the  forget ITunes and use Xbox (offered with win8) Why would I do that? They charge a monthly charge whether you purchase music or not! It's a conspiracy, I tell you.  Apple and Microsoft are working against us!!

Next problem:  I have Photoshop, or did have.  Can't find it either.  Read the same suggestions....just upgrade from CS4 to the newest and it will work.  If I can't open CS4 can I upgrade?  Adobe please help me!  I've had it for 5 years and it was an investment to say the least.  I don't even know where the installation disc is.........

If you are contemplating an upgrade, I would hold out!  Evidently this 8 was released before it was ready to accept these issues.  Has any upgrade ever been without bugs?  So frustrating to the consumer!!

You know how much I hate change......did it just to bring work home with me......bad idea anyway!

I had some great pictures and my last week of fun to share with you but got sidetracked with this stupid computer.  Maybe tomorrow!  If I can find my pictures!!

I am not contemplating an upgrade right now. Things like this always bother me too. I like getting things done in a routine! I hope you get this worked out!

Oh dear... I'm so sorry. I have Windows 7. We were going to get 8, but my son-in-law said to wait on it. Thank you for the warning. I shall heed it.

I think I'll wait to upgrade! Thanks for the warning! Hope you get it all worked out...upgrading should make things better, not worse!

I don't upgrade or change if I don't have to. Much prefer to just work with what I've got. All these companies just keep making new stuff so that you can spend more money. Hope you got things sorted out over there and that all is well. Best wishes, Tammy
