Hi there, please forgive me if I am in the wrong forum, but I don't know where to begin. I have tried looking at the tutorials, etc, but the language is way above my head. I have recently bought a second hand computer, which on the outside looked a good one. Its a Sony Vaio, and it seems to have everything together. My knowledge is very limited, as I only really know how to use Microsoft Office, and a nice friendly Windows environment.
Now I know I have Windows XP installed, I was a secretary, so I only ever used the basic office programs, and when I had a problem a nice technical help guy used to come and fix it at work while I went onto another terminal, so unfortunately, I never got to see what he actually did and he never offered any advice, so I went on my merry way. Well I became ill a few months ago, and I have had to leave my job, and I thought well I could do some typing, etc, from home, so obviously I got a computer.
It seems to be functioning ok, but is very slow, however it has alot of memory and ram and it doesn't seem to have many files on the Windows side, but I obviously don't know whats running underneath if you understand. I would also like to surf the web abit but I want to surf it safely. I will be honest, I have looked at your guides and they have just gone straight over my head, because I certainly don't know what you are talking about. Yes I know you are speaking English in the forum, but there are so many strange words, etc, I am completely lost. I know this sounds crazy, but I can't really tell you what is wrong, with the computer, but the feel of the computer feels wrong somehow. The problem is I don't have alot of money to fix the computer, and I have look at the price of all the cleaning tools etc, and it seems to be mounting up in my head. I wonder if some kind person could put me under their wing, and guide with baby steps please.
I do appreciate your time and patience.
