As an even older Old Fart at 81, I am still very interested in computing, In the 1970's I was a computer librarian at the IBM complex in Havant. I went from Monster Mainframes to Windows 3.1 and have stuck with them ever since. My hobbies of walking and cycling are no longer fun but I do enjoy helping my friends of similar age to avoid the pitfalls of modern PC life. Offer a pensioner a freebie and he or she will happily press every button in sight.

I found this community when I downloaded Adwcleaner and saved a friend from an expensive phone call for help. The same program has also helped me to clean out unwanted trackers. I will spend a lot of time lurking and learning but hope to contribute and help those who will help me and my pals.
