As an owner of a board dealing with just about everything from hobbies, to music, to image collecting, to movies, to security issues, this forum, after a brief look around, appears to be what the doctor ordered to answer quite a few of the questions often asked by our members.
I just browsed a bit through the tutorials page before registering and I must say was greating impressed! Now don't get me wrong, I am by no means a technical wizard in any manner shape or form, so from what I have read up to this point, I can see where you will be very valuable source of information!
Our biggest problem to date is handling the day to day attempts by the ever growing list of script kiddies trying to make a name for themselves by installing god knows what on our machines! Having a place to come and ask for advice can only be a plus!
I would also say, I would like nothing better than to be able to contribute to the knowledge base here and figure by just asking a question never asked before may be just that ticket! Unfortunately, computers only come with the very basics of instructions! The heavy duty stuff only comes after damage has already been done! Or! The people writing the "How to's" write as though we should already know what is being discussed!
Just try explaining to a 72 year old mother in law why she has to have all these programs installed on her computer to protect a $1,000 unit! Good enough! So we put these programs on her machine and set them to auto run and update! Now, explain to her, she is NOT to turn off the updaters or disable a scan because it interferes with her "online" solitaire games!
With that said, you know how valuable a place such as this is to have when she has done this and a nasty has gotten in and needs fixing! Anyway, I'll try very hard to not be pain with too many questions! Thank you for even letting me register!
