Hi Sandie, and welcome.
My first thought is a post that explains what you are working with.
I setup a used system for a neighborhood middle schooler
and made an initial post to help him out.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...ic=17149&st=0
At least that way we know quite a few variables that make it easier to give one-to-one advice.
Otherwise, the forums here are full of information that probably relates to things you are
now experimenting with. Let us know how we might be able to help specifically.
