  • Hello rhysjw,

    Both Windows and Office are Volume Licensing installations, not retail or OEM.

    This would be expected if this computer belonged to a larger organization like a larger business, educational institution, or government agency.

    If you are simply an individual consumer, having Volume Licensing software usually means that you have been victimized by software pirates and/or counterfeiters.

    Could you describe how you acquired the Windows and Office presently installed on your HP Mini?

  • rhysjw edited his post to remove the Diagnostic Report.  This was done After Dan posted his request for additional information. 

    Since rhysjw must have seen Dan's post but declined to answer the question that Dan had asked, I can only assume this to mean that rhysjw's issue has been resolved and as such, I will mark this thread as Answered.
