Hello. I'm a long time computer user, but they have always been older computers and other brands. I've never owned a Windows computer, and now I have a Windows Vista machine and have no idea where to start. I am hoping to find good advice on how to get started.

:thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer

Here's a link to the Vista tutorials here at Bleeping Computer, Google is always useful and of course if there's something that isn't answered you can always post a question in the Vista section.
