Re: Fazed out data plan

A lot will depend on the phone you have or whether you are willing/able to buy another if your phone is locked to the carrier. Who is/was your carrier?

Re: Potentially the longest thread in history...

Re: Windows 7 on HP Pavilion G6-2237TX?

Try using Classic Shell (https://classicshell.net/) on Windows 8 and/or 10. It lets you make the start menu like Win7 or even XP if you want.

No clue as to what is causing it to fail. I have already using SFC and DISM (even used my Win10 ISO with DISM to do any repairs).
