The format for downloading looks something like this:
Find file. Save file (can't run it or else apper becomes a bitch and doesn't open)
Go to Install/Remove Program.
Type in Program
Find it (half the time, like Skype, it won't even freaking be there).
Accept (AKA download).
It's a pain. And the worst part. It's all my fault. I don't know what to tell my parents (we live in NJ and I'm in Cali right now). TBH, vista was the most garbage piece of junk I've ever used. Vista is worse than XP (aren't they shutting down the XP stuff now?) And I've wanted to upgrade to W7 (though playing BW on there is a bitch I heard with the problems it has). Seriously, I just want a Windows computer I'm familiar with and know how to download stuff on. Not some BS method on a program I don't use and never will. I don't know what to do right now, it's 2am, I'm tired and really frustrated.
What do you guys think I should do? Just call my dad or mom up and say that the computer is broken? Basic consequences in a nutshell, they would go ape shit on me and never let me do anything ever again, scream at me for a couple of hours (I'm so bored of their yelling I've actually gone to timing how long one "lecture" is), or not buy me a new one and tell me to deal with it and that I got myself into this mess. TT.TT
TL:DR My computer is broken, but semi-fixed with weird program that I hate, want new computer but afraid of parents reaction(s).
