Hey kids, Looks like a lot of newbies like me.  I have an old XP desktop, which we are replacing shortly.  Also have 5 year old laptop with Vista.  Have lots to still learn and will need more help with new Win8, I'm sure.  Nice to be here. :welcome:

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Hi and welcome



I have an old XP desktop, which we are replacing shortly.  Also have 5 year old laptop with Vista.

Try a light Linux on those machines you may be suprised at how well they work.
