The Owen Rants ...

... But when I couldn’t get to the BIOS on a 2014 Windows 8 Asus the repeated ESC way, the web said “press ESC, F2, Insert one after another repeatedly while booting” and that worked....

Or at 10/8/17 on an asus ux31a “ZenBook” Windows 7 laptop: repeated F2s gets into the bios. BUT instead, doing repeated F11s got into the windows something menu, whereupon an F8 got me to a screen of choices, one of which was SAFE MODE. ... Sadly, the thing itself went bonkers shortly afterwards, and while F2 and F11 still coax it into various states of psychotic revery, it will most likely window no more forever....

... and scurrilous whines

... And in our up-to-date times, Adobe has taken up the challenge of scammy malware copy-extortion pretend-graphix software....
