Hello All,

I'm a father of a 14 year old who has no problem downloading anything in site, uses AIM and hotmail and has no problem saying yes to anything when prompted.
I have two problems that I searched on this site and hopefully will result in a correction. I know I will need this forum for future problems until I buy my daughter her own lap top and recover my desk top. I'm enjoying the forums reading the same frustrations that I have experienced from others. I :thumbsup: doubt I will be able to contribute but hopefully you will find my problems interesting and challenging.

There are several very good tutorials dealing with best computer security practices, which you might want to print out for your daughter, to impress on her the very real dangers involved in blindly downloading anything and everything. A friend of mine who had a similar problem made his son fix the problems he had created; the lesson was learned.
Naturally the members here will be ready to help you.
