Howdy Folks! :cowboy: Just as the title and description says... Another "bleeping newbie" signs-up because I hear that this is a ***GREAT*** website! From what I've seen thus far cruising around the BC website, guess what? What I heard turns out to be right-on!!! :thumbsup:

Computer-wise, I am a disabled retiree that considers himself an advanced computer geek. :crazy: Of course, the translation of that description means that I know just enough about running "regedit" to be extremely dangerous! LOL :hysterical: !!!! And that is why I need Bleeping Computer; to help me muddle through the technical details of trying to undo whatever I did that I thought was absolutely correct and a good thing to do but turned out to be unfortunately very wrong whereby causing my BLEEPING COMPUTER to behave very badly; if it even comes to "life" in order to "behave" at all... :oopsign:

Yup, I'm an easy-going hillbilly mountain-boy now living in the BIG concrete city rolling around with round legs (read that as: I'm a veteran wheelchair user) so you can also call me a "wheelie" which relates to my screen-name. TMI yet? :unsure:

On the more-serious side, I do look forward to picking up some valuable tips from the gurus around here and doing some research of my own with the "search-button" before asking a stupid question that has been asked (and maybe answered) a gazillion times. :flamethrower: Ahhhhhhh... the good-life of a noob!!! And if you really want to know, my computer is quickly becoming an antique (Dell Dimension E510 - 3 GHz Pentium 4 with 1 GB RAM running MS WinXP 2005 MC SP3) from January 2006. Plans are in our (my wife and I) 4th Quarter 2013 budget (just before all support ends for WinXP) for a new screaming-beast to possibly run Windows 8. Let's all pray "old-faithful" makes it that long :rip: (and I'm not talking about my wife but rather that :censored: bleeping computer!). Thanks everyone! :wub:

Well, back to searching the BC Startup List which is why I came here today in the first place. Cheers all!

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

There's useful information, including "getting started" stuff in the New User Orientation forum, and in the "sticky" topics at the top of forums.
Top 5 things that never get done:
