I can sum myself up in a very few words....old, tired and interested in computers.

I could also sum myself up and several more sentences!

I'm male 62 and from a moderately sized city in the heart of England

I am single and, as they so quaintly put it, I am "unwaged"

which means I have quite a lot of free time which I devote to improving myself. I have enrolled on an Open University Spanish course! I have also become active with my local u3a group (University of the 3rd age) for retired and semi-retired.

I like to think of myself as quite advanced when it comes to computers but in saying that I should be honest and say my advanced claim refers to building them rather than actually using them! This proven by my discovering "bleepingcomputer" existed when I tried to find out the reason Malwarebytes was treating Iobits Advanced System Care as an enemy. Reading through a number of posts on this splendid place I immediately uninstalled ASC along with its companion Driver updater and Disk Defragger! Snake oil and hokum I am reliably informed....well all gone now!


Right, OK, I am very approachable and friendly chap. Always willing to take advice and often just as willing to give my opinion.

I want to add that this is clearly an international forum so let me be straightforward and completely open here................I am enthused by computerws but I am passionate about football. I mean the American version on the gridiron, and there is ONLY one team in the NFL that holds my allegiance and that is the New England Patriots! Go Pats!


If you disagree I will be happy to settle the manner as gentlemen. Pistols, swords or a stick of rhubarb. Just please not at dawn, that's when the sun comes up and this Noctua will be in bed! (for explanation of Noctua please see the post on definitions of user names qv.)
