I was not the kid who did well with computers. I remember around middle school having these gigantic Tandy 1 piece computers. We spent the class learning how to write script (DOS?) to makes pictures of santa and the easter bunny and whatever else the teacher felt like making us design. The most boring class EVER! At least when you are 13 and just want to be outside. So it kind of wrecked it for me. I loved my NES and Atari but the computer and me never saw eye to eye after that class. Now they have become a necessity and I am stuck back in the text books trying to learn these things all over again. Sometimes I envy my grandparents who are completely computer oblivious. They think the VCR is some kind of super computer. They would rather garden, or walk around the neighborhood, or knit. I guess I can thank them for my hobbies. I dont knit, but I do grow heirloom tomatos, peppers, onions, and many other vegetables to use for a small salsa business I am toying around with. I BBQ every friday with friends religiously, and love to hike. I have often thought of some really beautiful waterfall when I am getting frustrated with my computer. Dreaming of throwing the stupid thing off is calming. So I came across this forum from HiJack this and will probably be asking some very dumb questions. Please bear with me, I will figure it out. Eventually. Maybe. I also belong to some other forums around the net so if you are into planted freshwater aquariums, or built up powerwheels ( yes the kind for kids), we would get along.
Allright, I have rambled long enough. Hello! Nice to make your aquaintance. And happy hollidays!

Hi tg1911,
Thanks for the welcome. This place seems to be a wealth of information. Thanks for the suggestions, I am going to take a look around and see what I can do about virus protection. I am not really pleased with my current antivirus program. I am thinking of going back to AVG. Not sure yet though. Need to read some more testimonials about whats out there first. Hope to se you around- T
