As my 'title' shows, I am older rather than younger, a grandma and a used to be computer geek...of course that was when life was simple and we could still get back to MS-DOS...Anyone remember DOS????? ANYHOW,
I have been fighting pop-ups, worms, Trojans from somewhere besides Athens, and more, for the last 2 months, from a download site, that was who knows where.
I ran across "bleeping..." in my perusal of the web trying to find a fix for this buggy laptop, so I decided to lurk awhile and then of course, curiosity prevailed and I have joined.
So...I will post my problems elsewhere as the rules state, but wanted to says hello and thanks for having such a great forum.
BTW, I have 11 computers of various vintages, from win 95 to a Vista one coming shortly. I also have a PowerPC I have never used, as I am Apple challenged. The reason for all of these toys, including my new XFX nForce 680i LT with a nVidia 8800 GT OC onboard is....GAMES, of Course!! have collected for over 25 years...that would be when the TI TRS came out, and the text based games in DOS only, to, of course, Crysis, Call of Duty, etc., now. These games all belong to me, in 20+ CD binders, with cluebooks, cheats, walk-thrus and more, stored in various boxes and/or hard drives.
I am a collector, not a player, sadly, but now that I am retired, I would like to change all of that and even try my hand at some online gaming, as well as finding other folks with the same likes, etc.
BUT...I need to get the creatures OFF my 'puters first...so I hope to see some of you all in the needed forums soon and thanks again for being here!
