Don't really know if this goes here are not.
The good lady got a security patch a few days ago she installed it, and it really made a mess of her laptop.
lost the search part of fire fox, could still go to about half of her boodmarked sites could not get to the others. she brought it to me to fix. Really weird what I was seeing look like she was running in vpn mode grub was corupted and more broken parts of the system then I could deal with, I thought easy solution re install. Easier said then done. What I had to do was erase everything on the hard drive before I could reinstall Sparky. On todays news in tech section of BBC news Intel is telling people not to install the Security patch that they put out it might slowdown your computer or worse, well here it was worse.
