Hi! I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I purchased what I thought to be a full version of the Windows 8 Operating System from my university. It turns out it was only an upgrade version, and they're not letting me return it. The only solution I can think of is buying a full version of an older Windows OS and then just upgrading it to the Windows 8. Is this my best option? Other than just buying another full version? Would some place like eBay or Amazon be a decent place to look an older version or am I just asking for trouble? Thoughts/Suggestions/Ideas are appreciated. Thanks.
(Am re-posting this as the first one does not appear). This is a problem re getting my photo stream to work. I have a MacBook Air with all of the latest software. For iPhoto I have installed 9.1.1 via the iLife 11 disk. When I tried to upgrade from the Apple site (iPhoto knows that an upgrade is available, specifically 9.2.1 which is needed for iCloud to work) a pop-up says: iPhoto 9.1.0 or later is required to install this update. Note the regular software upgrade site under the apple states that my software is up to date as does the App Store. So something obviously wrong. On the MacRumors blog site several also had this problem and some were fixed by moving the iPhoto application out of a separate folder and back to the Application original site. One person had more problems requiring him to seek expert advice from the Mac App Store Support. His was a more complicated problem as he also had a wrong billing information. He had to remove an icon from the System Preferences site, trash iPhoto and then re-install it and it worked. (I can supply this series of e-mails if desired). I have placed the iPhoto icon back into the application folder on the hard drive as I too had moved it and have done a series of restarts but nothing happened. Do I have to do the trash iPhoto, then re-install?Thanks.
For the second time, after upgrading my Firefox search engine (now Firefox 6.0) my Google home page doesnot offer the "Search UK sites only" facility. Last time this happened, I found a most helpful reply on a discussion forum and it worked. I cannot remember the site, nor what I did to restore the facility. Please can you help - How do I restore the "search UK sites only" facility on my Google home page?
