2 Gigs of Ram and a small 16 Gig eMMC card – – so – – use a lighter browser like Midori and don’t expect fast internet if the site is media heavy (like “weather.com”). Still . . . . it’s $99 . . . .

Have ever had this box pop up?
I did some hunting and I have a twelve step edit of regedit to permit you to do that install windows 10 has been blocking. When done you can go over the twelve steps and revert to the way it read the error codes except your install is now working. I had trouble originally running the built in install on my hp 1102w laser printer. That is when I started the hunt for a solution.
So if you are into a little regedit let me know and I will send a text file on the steps.
Excellent traditional email client – – new look & many new features (like the default “Photon” theme). T-Bird is compatible with all OS’s.
