Hi everyone. I'm a 26 year old bloke living in Oxfordshire, working for the National Health Service. I've always had an interest in computers. It all started with owning my own computer. I love finding out how things work so took the whole thing apart, then put it back together. Lo-and-behold, it didn't work like it used to; so I went about fixing it. I've never done any formal training with computers but love learning from people who know and this forum is the first I've decided to join.

Recently I've become very confident in the removal of viruses/spyware from friends computers and am thinking about doing it as a part-time hobby/business. I'd like to say I'm also happy and knowledgable to install and diagnose/fix problems with wireless networks. I find it such a challenge to solve problems, and to the disappointment of my girlfriend, I usually don't stop until they are solved and I could do it again!!

I'm looking forward to learning as much as possible from everyone and if I can help anyone out with my very limited knowledge then all the better.

Cheers everyone.
