    Computer Protection expired and now I can't use my computer.


    I logged into my account on my computer and the only thing on the screen was an alert that my computer virus protection has expired and I need to update it. The rest of the screen was black. I clicked restore and it brought me to Microsoft Edge which isn't my default search engine. I can't access anything on my computer or any of my files. There is no taskbar or anything. I thought I could still use my computer if the protection expired?

    :)

    Same here. But not only did everything fry, it also caught fire (dunno how exactly). The fire fighters were thrilled, they say it's the first time they ever saw the computer itself catch fire
    like that..

    Computer Protection expired and now I can't use my computer.

    Does this computer build have compatibility problems? Opinions welcomed!

    Lets start with what you're going to use this computer for, not what you want to put in it.

    Rules/steps to building a computer (in chronological order):
    First rule: Determine what your needs are.
    Second rule: Define your budget.
    Third rule: Pick parts.
    Fourth rule: Review parts several times.
    Fifth rule: Buy said parts.
    Sixth rule: Build it.

    You are on rule/step 1. Go through the list until you're done.
