Just thought I'd join this site to hopefully learn and be able to keep up with the rapidly expanding world of computers and malware. I'm a retired Teamster carhauler and now drive a tour bus once in a while. I spend most of my time laying around the house when I'm not riding my bike or car (or working on them), banging on my guitar, or piddling around on this computer. I don't consider myself to be any kind of computer go to guy, unless it's something simple like a clean install of xp, running scans or keeping the system up to date. My main OS is Ubuntu, but I keep a copy of xpHome on the second drive (some programs do not have a Linux version yet). I like to read The Register and Slashdot, but I'd rather get lost in a novel (I'm pretty good at that). I do not have a Facebook or Twitter account, and I'm starting to think I'm the only one left. Most likely you won't hear from me a whole lot, but I'll try to tune in from time to time...

Hi, I am new here as well. I have Vista on my laptop but sometimes I miss the good old XP especially some fonts that I don't have on Vista.
I didn't know that you can keep a spare OS on the second drive like you say. Is it one of those external hard drives? I am not a computer geek but am learning something new every day.
