Basically, I know very little about the how-to's of the computer behind the scenes. I'm learning the hard way...which is how I wound up here at this site. I run Windows 2000 Professional, on a computer put together by a Brit friend of mine (poor thing isn't happy here in the United States). Not at all sure what he has in there, and please, don't ask me about it as I really don't know how to find out (like I said, I'm the Idiot Outside). Anyway, when I found this forum, I thought maybe it might be a good place for me to pick up pointers, tips and assorted 'how-to's'...and maybe figure out what I'm doing before I really mess it up!
(Yes, I will answer questions, and most important...I know how to follow instructions!)

A great way to learn is to read some of the Tutorials; these cover basic information using language designed for a casual user. A second way to increase your knowledge is to spend a little free time each day reading some of the forum threads (original posts and replies).
Welcome to BC!

Thanks, I've been doing that. I think I went into overload, though. There's a LOT of information to assimilate.

:thumbsup: Intel inside can get overloaded doing normal action.

At least your actions are extraordinary ...
deciding to combat ignorance of computing behind the scenes by gaining knowledge, despite the pain involved.

My compliments and encouragement to you, wicky

I came here in a "phawgg" myself.
Protesting all the way.
Painfully, too.

Good Luck.

Perservere.
