Just found this forum, I'm studying various aspects of computing including networking and have had some recent troubles with infections at home. Various searches have led me to many sites and I've gotten lots of info, some of it conflicting, so I'm here to see what I can. The original HD I started with is not un use, I've just installed a new HD and multipartitioned with 4 OS's so that's been fun, any questions and I"ll try to answer. Otherwise, I hope to learn more.
Thanks for reading.

Even when you separate fact from opinion, primary from secondary sources, the computer is so complex and evolving that it is often difficult to ascertain the truth.

Welcome to our ongoing struggle, jerryc :thumbsup:
I too have frequent encounters with conflicting and/or
unresolved discussions involving a wide variety of
computing issues.

Volume, I find is helpful... although time-consuming.
At least with our search engines, in particular google,
we can find 789 responses to just about anything. :flowers:

Seriously, the practical nuts n' bolts construction of
programs and the operating systems' workings,
the how-to and how-not-to do things, is quite important.

Trial & error plays a key role in the discovery process.
The more trials, the more errors and the more sharing of
the RESULTS -----> Thats what we need.

Thanks for joining our community (where problems are plentiful,
but the solutions to them are published, too.)
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
