Angry lame computer

Hi guys. Our computer is being dumb, so I won't be around as often as I'd like (all day). Just wanted to give a head's up. I'm on my husband's laptop right now but he's paranoid about viruses so I won't be using it that much. Hopefully we'll be getting it fixed soon. It won't even start, it is saying that a file is either corrupted or missing and to try to repair it with a certain cd-rom. We'll see. Dh said he'd fix it but who knows when that will happen...

Been there and done that several times. We bought a new PC Tuesday with lots more goodies (like 1 gig memory). Now I have to learn how to use all the stuff plus get certain things transferred to this one.

maybe using his computer will keep the repair on the top of his to-do list. I know that works for me. I don't let the kids touch mine unless I absolutely have to.

Good Luck
