I am brand new to this site, but after having read several of the forum topics, it seems like there are many people here that love to help others with their computer problems, and they seem to be very knowledgeable and a damn bit smarter than I, when it comes to the inner workings of these magical machines. I am not a beginner by any stretch of the imagination, but I look forward to learning as much as possible, and being able to then pass that info on down the line... I'm glad to be here, as I have started to get paranoid about everything I do when using my laptop due to all the warnings of scams and fraud that you hear about these days.
I've decided that the only way to protect myself and use my laptop without worry, is for me to get informed. It's a crazy world out there, but there are many more 'White Knights' out there than there are hoodlums and thugs that seem to have no scruples whatsoever.
So with that, I look forward to learning all I can, and again say, Thanks for being here!
