Hi, I'm 65, recently retired and have been in computing for 30 years. Taught for a number of them, troubleshooting, technical support, database management for the housing department at a major state university. Into movies, audio books, writing - formerly skydiving and motorcycles - and felt pretty confident about my computer knowledge until this weekend. Then WHAM-OO! Got my first real virus (NO, not discussing it here!) Still trying to clean up and recover about 1,225 movies plus enough audio books to start a small library from a 1.5 terabyte external drive. C'est la f_____g vie!, or as Old Lodge Skins says, "Sometimes the magic works...and sometimes it doesn't"

Hello and :welcome: 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.

—George Bernard Shaw
