..specifically, not in the general sense :thumbsup:

I'm using a computer mostly for home use. Single station, two users. I'm moving soon, and have had to tweak the other account a bit to maintain security, so I'll post my question(s) in a relevant forum. So far, I've managed to solve a few problems, and have a few more to go.

The fact that I'm currently incapable of completely filling out the system information on my profile page (or, in a couple of cases, not looking it up now) should give you a clue about my level of competency. Seriously, though, I'm a not too bad a study. Would anyone like to reccomend any good intermediate books about WinXP (I'm not ready for VB!)

Thanks for any direction any of you might give in the future.

Thanks. I think I'll be falling into the self-taught category as well. My first contact with a 'puter was an AppleIIC, which dates me a bit. I've checked the orientation and tutorials & didn't find info relevant to what I need to do, so it's time to start asking.

I find that the For Dummies series of books are quite good and have self paced lessons and good examples.

You could probably find one at a local library but I find its best to purchase my own so that I can make notes in it and leave a bookmark in there to indicate where I left off.

They are about $40 and are well worth the money and the time invested to read them.
