Joined the forum today, just a brief note to introduce myself!

Have been messing about with computers for the last 20+ years, started life with an Amstrad 1512 (remember those?). Having added a 30MB hard-card, I thought I was at the cutting edge of technology!

Unfortunately owing to my age have never had any formal training or teaching with the computer, hence have got by with trying for myself, talking to informed friends, my son/daughter and reading where possible.

Am currently running Windows XP, but unfortunately have encountered a malware problem. Will post a query to the appropriate forum.

I'm looking forward to talking to like-minded people!

Hello and welcome Dave J Spencer
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
