Hi everyone, I have been tinkering, fixing and putting together computers for years. Computers are like cars and doctors. Every car is differently designed and has certain quirks that can only be fixed from someone who has had the experience fixing that particular problem. Doctor’s will tell you what you need to do to get fixed and another doctor will tell you that your problem is not what the other doctor thought but because the doctor has practiced in his or her field, and has diagnosed and treated your condition before, the doctor is in a better place to help you. My point is that technology, along with malicious spyware, worms, Trojans, and ransomware, to name a few, are constantly practicing their craft of troubling, distressing, provoking and giving us forced anxiety. Have you ever had a Blue Screen? Has the Blue Man group taken over your nightmares? Together, we can learn from each other to practice the right way to keep our computers running clean. The more we ban together, help each other and teach each other, the better we will feel. We will feel more confident when problems arise and know how to protect ourselves against these threats. We become change agents who can empower other people to fight back against their bleeping computers to a working computer that we thought we were safe with because we had paid for all the great virus programs to protect us. I always learn a lot from everyone and am glad I finally joined the forum.
