I am Joe and probably live up to my name as far as computer use/experience for someone my age is concerned...average. I'm 53 and use an old Optiplex GX240 (from which I write) to research everything from food recipes to truck repair to billing for our Estate Services company. My wife, Kim, and I also do some on-line bookselling and use our desktop and a Dell 5150 laptop to this end. We live in the Southeasterly reaches of the Allegheny mountains in Southwest Virginia where we enjoy beautiful scenery and a slow-paced lifestyle and an even slower internet connection: DIAL-UP ! We live at the base of several large mountains and cannot even access satellite. Oh well , we somehow have managed to have our trusty desktop infected with something malicious and so will soon be posting in the Malware Removal Forum. After this problem is (hopefully) corrected , we hope to participate in your community to become more knowledgeable/savvy computer users . Wish us luck !

Hello Joe and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Please take a few moments to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the forum works.

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

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?

I am a Bleeping Computer fan! Are you?
