I have computer experience and was even a executive admin in the tech support dept of a popular modem company in the 90's who developed PCMCIA cards. I don't think I'm as savvy as I once was, but do need to get some applications going on my computer so I can start classes in a few weeks. The computer is a gift and began as an upgraded WIN 2000 now running XP. It has an external hard drive, as most of C drive is full. We have already had problems in getting it secured (hopefully with avast we can be just fine). We've already been swiss cheesed by a trojan and replaced the internet card.
I try to keep it simple (word processing) but my husband likes to visit WWE and gaming sites (at least I've taught him to keep the temporary internet files deleted
I would really appreciate some help streamlining and getting Adobie Reader to actually load while keeping my computer safe. We, my husband and I, look forward to working with you soon
