Have you tried reinstalling the Os ? or even better using a linux variant ?
What does being 60 have to do with any of that? Just wondering
I'm 66. I find Windows 7 a logical step from XP. I could never get comfortable with Vista. My wife had no trouble with Vista. I really hate programing the remotes for TV, VCR, VDR, CABLE, Antena, etc.
Connecting w/humans can be overrated; but I wouldn't dare say that on.. er, oops
Oh well. Bye now.
