after attempting to sign into my hotmail inbox for the 'illionth time today and not being able to :evil: , AND after contacting various tech support because of, i decided to officially join this site and make myself a home for seeking-out computer help. i just bought my first computer three weeks ago and am having to crash-course learn as fast as i can how to maintain one! (i don't know much about computers except how to email and surf the net and a little bit of info i've gleaned over the past month.) i've already run into a few problems with my computer, and the amount of information out there on the net (and on this site alone!) is tremendous, to where i feel i'd have to give up school and family to read all of it :}. as a novice to the IT realm, can anyone offer me a more stream-lined course of action for learning computers than randomly searching the internet during crises(-prevention)?
thanks so much! :)
