Hello, Everyone.

Long time watcher of this site but first time looking for help. I'm hopeful, as I have seen (or read of) lots of other folks in computer trouble getting bailed out by the knowledgeable people on these forums.

I'm 62, retired from public service, and am a slightly more than inexperienced user. Please be gentle when I do something dumb ... because I know I will.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

Welcome to BC!
If you have spent some time around the forums reading threads, you already know how to post about a problem, so I doubt you will do anything "dumb" when you post.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
