FIXED!!!! A very helpful forum user was able to give me a tip. Apparently the newer models come with bundled (forced) security software. So, if you come across this problem, make sure to uninstall the 'edata security' software. That's all I did and it fixed it. I'm only bumping this to make sure people know and just incase anyone else has this problem you guys will know what to tell them. Thank you everyone!
I know this is poor form to post something non-fashion related on the feed, and doing so with my shop blog. :o Whoops. But this is important to me.
Some of you might know that I've been struggling with a dying computer for weeks now. I finally decided to call it quits with the old beast and so I got a new computer wednesday. It's lovely, it works wonderfully. I didn't actually try uploading anything until Sunday, and that's when I ran into a problem. For some reason I can't upload - at all. I have no upload dialog menu. I crash if I try to force it to find a file. I crash crash crash. I've done everything I can think of - uninstalled, reinstalled, different accounts, different viewers. Today a friend pointed me in the direction of a JIRA that is my problem exactly. Apparently it's a new model Acer issue, as that's what my computer is too.
If any of you want to take a look at the symptoms in the JIRA comments and give me ideas or suggestions - I'd love that also. But if you could just take a moment to go there and simply vote on the issue, I'd appreciate that muchly.
This is rather crucial...it might not seem like much, but without the ability to upload - LAP comes to a grinding halt. I'm going to steal a computer from my mother or brother to try and use for uploading in the meantime, but that will be such a tedious process I can probably assure you that I won't accomplish much at all. So, for those of you who care about this at all, and my sanity, please vote!
Thank you! <3 Dove
