[ExI] crashes

Toshiba laptop, about 5 years old.  Hate to buy a new one because I have
the OED on my drive and presumably it cannot be copied to a new one.  I
called a shop and they were evasive.  Good work before by them, though.

There is nothing currently connected to this PC.  I did try to install a HP
laserjet which I never did get to work even with the DVD, but it printed
anyway.  Hmm.  But I disconnected the usb cord until I can find a way to
install it as a wireless device.

Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and get some kind of Apple.  bill w
