Main Question or Discussion Point
I need some help with this problem. My housemate, a computer-illiterate lady who uses her daughter's old laptop solely to browse the internet, last evening wanted me to help her figure out how to (illegally) stream the Academy Awards Ceremony. I found a link but it wouldn't play on her Google Chrome, which was an older version. I downloaded and installed the newest version of Chrome for her, but it ran incredibly slow on her machine (2009 generic 64-bit laptop running Windows 7) and the adblock wasn't working correctly and a million other problems. I didn't want to tick her off by trying cluttering her already-cluttered disc space with additional drivers and such to get the new Chrome working properly. Also, she was being pissy about not liking how the new Chrome looked "different" (just because the top of the window was semi-transparent whereas it used to be solid). Basically, she's mad at me and wants her old version of Chrome back. I'm not sure how to get it back. First of all, I'm not sure which version it was or where to find a download site for it (I tried several sites and none of them worked). Second of all, I'm not sure how to replace a current version of Chrome with an older one. If I download the older one and try to open it, then the new version will be opened anyways. I can delete the new version, but then I can't download the older version because the only other browser she has is IE and it's broke as **** and can't download anything from the internet. I tried downloading the new Firefox but it also doesn't run properly on her computer. Any idea why nothing new won't run on her computer? I'm a Mac guy, so I'm used to having to troubleshoot.
