New Laptop: Windows Update and Sound Problems
Hey guys. My dad got a new laptop, and while I was home for Christmas I thought I'd run Windows Update, and make sure everything's running okay.
Two problems: it keeps wanting to install MSXML 4.0 Security Update (KB92978) over and over again. The update history has it installed like twenty times.
Also, the sound goes out on occasion, and when you click on the volume control, it claims that there's no audio mixer installed. This can be solved by resetting, but it's still a pain.
Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
