I have two old (2002) computers both Packard Bell one is desktop which has had new graphics card memory
upgrade SP3 added, recent Avast free anti virus etc etc in other words well maintained (I think)
The other is a laptop of only 25gig + 256 ram keep this updated too and runs AVG
They both work extremely well in my opinion in the case of the desktop running games including
flight simulators, photo workshops etc and wireless access to the internet is within 12secs.
Laptop is mostly internet usage (cable, no usb2) and DVD playing although I have Picasa for photos
added. Slow by comparison with the desktop but I imagine that is to be expected?
Although I went mad when these were given to me by my son and daughter and uploaded allsorts of
freebies from the like of ComputerActive quickly dispensed of anything I did not really need!
I am left with two "faults" (1) laptop can,t load library TopSearch.dll (2) desktop can,t find module NvQTwk.
So.. do I research deleting these faults and risk the rath of my computers or click and forget?
There may be more of us out there with old machinery than you think!
