I am a newbie here on this forum, but have visited several thousand forums and help desks in the past years of computer usage. Today, it seems that I get about one hour online that then requires several hours plus endless analyses and communications with others to find out how to get things running correctly again.

I'm pretty careful about opening risky sites, but 'what to do'? when my problems come from any program I am installing from either a disk or from online. Examples are Norton, whose programs I used for abut 3 years before their programs completely owned my computer. It took forever to get rid of them; the Quick Time comes out of nowhere and can't be uninstalled by a casual user.. Anyway I'm looking for a really good site to frequent, because I don't see the situation changing and I hope to be able to use the computer with more confidence. :thumbsup:

I think that, as you begin to ask questions about problems, you will also soon understand their causes. In time, you will find yourself spending almost no time fixing your problems because they will not be problems any more, and only doing routine maintenance every other week or so.
