Just wanted to intro myself and say HI! :thumbsup:

Decided to join the group and get some help for my slowing computer. I am already running the defragmenter in the background as I am writing this.

Hope to learn something new from other group members.

It seems this winter is about to get ugly even here in the sunny South (Atlanta, GA) and I will be spending a lot of time online. That said, my computer definitely needs a tune-up or maybe turbo drive installed. Too bad someone doesn't invent a dyno for computers!

Just to say a couple of things....

I am already running the defragmenter in the background as I am writing this.

You will get better results and a quicker defrag is you run defrag in safe mode. Don't run it while you are still using the pc.

Don't forget if you open a code...... you must also close a code for it to work.
after your typing you should have added.....
[/font] [/color]
then the words would have had the correct formatting.
But don't worry.... it took me ages to get the hang of it :thumbsup:
Scarlett has written a tutorial about using BBCode......Here
It's well worth reading...... i learnt a lot from it.

Welcome to BC!
You might want to review the "slow computer checklist:"


Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
