Hummmmmmmmm unhatched, you said that not me. And I have only used both to go online to update utilities and patch the OS and browser.
Plus my CD with SP 2 arrived today from M$. So the laptop will get it first as I tried twice before to put SP 2 on the 2001 XP SP 1 desktop. So not wanting to re-install and do 4 years of updates (i have some back ups BUT from different utilities I have tried over the years) I just went out and bought a new HP Media Edition with SP 2.
I might buy the SP 2 OS for the older machine but fear that to won't work on the old beast.
Security is the most important thing anyone can learn using a PC and I believe before they sell a newbie one he/she must take a class or two in security issues. But that is just IMHO.
Gee about the address you being gin my address book. Not a problem. I have very few contacts anyway. Mostly newsletters and utilities and support/tech help. The few family and friends I have don't use a PC.
I need to learn a lot but 2 just let the machines set there is less than bright also. And how do you know that I haven't changed my start page of the browsers on these 2 machines so as to avoid just what you suggest. And F.F. is set to the old board I use to go to. I consider others. U know the golden rule thingy!
What about something else you could get some thingy out there and infect everyone in your addy book just because a patch isn't yet released or you go to sites I would never think of going to.. U do go to other sites, D/L or perhaps use a p2p or have an Messenger application. Any comment to that? Gosh I'm relieved I am not in your addy book. lol
