I've spent some time perusing the various subforums here and it looks like I've stumbled onto a wonderful resource for dealing with all kinds of issues.

I'm not a fan of this technology; it's fussy, delicate and entirely too vulnerable to malware exploits. But I'm a big fan of what it can do, and, since I cannot afford my own IT professional to keep it up to snuff, I really have no choice to open the hood from time to time.

So here I am. I've recently purchased a new system (low end Compaq running WindowXP SP2 home) and, because I got all caught up in the Linux hype, installed Ubuntu on the old box just to play with. Play indeed. I just opened a second can of worms is what I did!! Now two BleepingComputers to fiddle with instead of one. That's progress!!!!

Thanks for listening!
