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 :thumbsup: ).

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

Hello emess and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
