avoid some of the usual bumps in the road
Some usual bumps are:
If you have the trial version of Windowblinds installed, it needs to be uninstalled before installing the pay version. Apply the default Microsoft scheme from within the WB Config window, then uninstall the trial. Reboot.
That's go advice. I do not have the trial version. I tried the Windows Blind last year. I decided to wait until I get my new build & OS.
Impulse is required to install the pay software. Download it and install it, it is your software manager. Do not panic at the advertising it contains or the default "Load at startup" configurations, you can reasonably disable / avoid those via some provided configuration options.
That has been a nagging issue in my mind. I dispise adware, when I have bought thier software. Like the Crysis 2 game I bought last month, having GamSpy installed triggered my A/V. I trusted it for now. I really am not going to do MultiPlayer, so I may nix it. I hope you are correct about nixing this adware. If I want something, I will seek for it. I get enuf adverts in my life. The brain is already full of mush.
Paypal seems to cause a delay after purchase, and can contribute to the email issue. Best to avoid using it for the purchase if you can.
Oh Man, really? I use Paypal rather exclusively. I will only get to use my RoboForm app I guess. I will make sure of the HTTPS. I am a private and careful sort. Oh I have been had before, don't get me wrong.
Thanks for all the good advise DaveRI!
