Re: telefonica/movistar 1004

Re: Salud Responde

The wait in Basingstoke is so long that my daughter has no option than to take emergency appointments when the kids need to see a GP.

Hi Paulinmalaga, Unless your failed upgrade to 1903 was due to something simple like lack of disk space........... Download the Media Creation Tool so you can download the 1903 .ISO file https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Using Rufus USB creation tool get the .ISO file onto...

Fed up with it all and have finally consigned the desktop to the basura. Just so tired with the Windows continued nonsense.
