Hi everyone,
The job of sorting out computer problems in our family seems to have fallen on my shoulders & as the kids keep growing, so do the issues that our computer has. Kids will be kids & they will play online games & use torrents. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing (especially when you are poking around in computers, I have discovered).
Anyho, I decided it would be pertinent to join a forum that discussed computer problems & this one seemed both friendly & honorable. So, here I am.

Hello swaz_g 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.

Welcome to BC!
Force your kids to sit beside you while you fix the problems they caused.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Cheers Pandy,
I did go in & have a bit of a poke around. Some interesting & very worth while info there.

Good advice John, perhaps I could make the kids do that, but it may drive me crazier. I find that computers are frustrating enough without the kids leaning over my shoulder & offering random advice whilst fidgeting non-stop.
