Even if it did, no foul play is allowed:

And you're gonna have to pay for it!

Is this why I find that the look and behavior of my desktop have changed lately??? I can't seem to find where to click anymore to do the tasks I used to do. I had trouble and failed to upload pictures to Facebook lately while I swear I was an expert at it before.

Also, some strange menus appear and I can't find a way to close them so I need to unplug my computer every time in order to reboot it. I asked my nephew to come and have a look at my computer next time he is in town because I am afraid I might have a virus...

How do I find out if I am still on XP or if am running Windows 10???

Thank you very much sir!

Your problem is the international carriers colluding to keep international prices high.

I usually stay behind 10 years in connectivity speeds and develop appropriately to match that. The only time I was ahead is when DSL first came out and 99% of people where still on 56kbps modems at home. I actually participated as a beta tester for free and I got 2.2mbps/1.1mbps speed for 4 years, half a mile away from the phone exchange. In that era, a T! (1.5mbps/1.5mbps) used to feed the IBM building where I was working and was pretty standard so it felt nice to experiment with the DSL from home.

Today, I am on 10mbps/1mbps and glad with it as mentioned here:

Jesus Christ, I thought saying in my OP "long periods of stress" was clear enough.

So let's say "long periods of stress" or even better: "long periods of stress caused by the same topic" == *Chronic*. OK?

See my other post about the definition of stress. Short term normal stress doesn't qualify because you do not end up in endless loops:

Thanks for the clarification anyway. It might help some.
