I am Donna.   I am from the dinosaur age of computers.  I can tell you all about running programs using two floppy discs and operating computer using the command line.  Since I now have 5 active computer in my house being operated by 9 children, 6 of them are on the computer quite a bit.  I am regularly removing unwanted programs from the computers.  I figured it is only a matter of time until I get something BIG that I will need more help removing so I decided to join.


And yes I do run an anti-virus, etc and have the computers password protects, but the darlings seem to find away around these things.  Gotta love my hackers in training.

Hello Donna, welcome to Bleeping Computer! I also remember using floppy drive only systems, although on my first computer a floppy drive was an extra, the default was boot from tape.
