Hi, I'm the one in my family that does "things" to the computer, mainly because I'm the only one interested. Problem is, I know just enough to get myself in trouble. Anytime things go wrong, the PC freezes or runs slow or a scary warning pops up, everyone turns to me saying, "What did you DO?" My usual response is, "I just upgraded, that's all!" Upgrading stuff gets me into strife all the time and I'd like to know why. I'd also like to know stuff in general about how it all works. I know little bits about my computer and my programs but they don't seem to fit together in any way that helps me foresee a problem. I've been very impressed by the advice given in this Forum, the time and patience taken by the moderators, and I hope to learn lots more from you guys. Thanks for the opportunity

Trial and error is one way to discover how computers work, to be sure. But often it is much easier and certainly much less aggravating to rely on help and advice from more experienced users. The common stock of computer knowledge here at BC will certainly help you.
