Hello Bleeping Members,

I discovered this site while searching on Wikipedia for unknown filenames in my STARTUP folder on my desktop running XP PRO.

I am a retired system engineer for the past 10 years, having spent 40 years in the computer industry, became a PC hobbyist when my employer at the time introduced the IBM PC.

My primary hobbies are soaring (flying gliders). skiing and trying to keep up with the world of the PCs.

I own a desktop I put together using an NFORCE 570 SLIT-A mobo running XP-PRO and an HP Pavillion, HDX 20" notebook monster crawling Vista Ultimate, frequently making me to consider throwing it away.

I hope to contribute once in awhile on this site, besides just looking for help.

Given the world of computing and the internet is in a constant state of change, it's surprising anyone can find time to do anything besides keeping up with it. Welcome to this friendly user community!
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

:flowers: :thumbsup: Hello all. im new to this site. I hope it will help me with some problems I am having. and maybe I can help other people too. Or maybe just talk and vent out lives to each other. Yesterday , was a crazy 4-1-09 day for myself and my husband. He had back surgery in Jan. 09, trying t get retirement from P. O and Disability from the US. Then 4-1-09, we get the call from his mothers nursing home in Ill., We live in Alabama, that she is being placed in Hospice care. Then a virus hit my computer hard. This has not been a good year. So how is everyone eles live. Mine is just great compared tosome. My name is Libby
