Hello, everyone!!

My husband and I are retired teachers in Central Texas and I am the computer person in our family. My husband hates them but wanted email and access to some hobby related sites. So we have been on the internet since January. What a learning curve. The last time I had anything to do with computers was when I worked in an IT department at UT Medical Branch in Galveston in 1995. Windows 3.1 era!! Yeah, Yeah, I know I'm in the dark ages in more ways than one.

This forum and a couple of others have been a life saver in the last few months. Have been devouring tutorials as fast as I can!! Feel like I'm coming up to speed on spyware and how one can get rid of it without having to take a sledge hammer to your PC. :thumbsup: Have already done some file researching in your stasrtup database. Wonderful tool you have there. :flowers:

Keep up the great work you are doing on this site and whatever you do, don't close up shop!!!!! :trumpet:
