I have a computer problem

this morning. I do not know what the problem is as I know very little about how computers work. Getting this far has been a matter of trial and error. First thing it did not even want to boot up. Goodness' knows whether it will want to save and publish this now that I have actually connected to the internet. My brother in law set this system up some years ago. He, being a computer engineer, knows far more about these things than I do. He "split" the system and did other fancy things of which I know nothing. I do not actually do anything terribly fancy on my computer. I download files, upload files and use it as a word-processor. The files I use come from sources I normally trust but that does not mean that they are virus free. I have a feeling the system needs cleaning again but I am not sure how to go about that - apart from running the registry cleaner. I had trouble uploading the virus update but it is now up to date. It made me realise that I just push the button each morning and expect it to work. If I am not here tomorrow or the next day and the will know why. :-(

Oh, well. More time for reading! ;-) Though, I hope the virus doesn't last long, it is such a pain being without the internet these days.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend Cat. Miaou!

For computer problems, if you are not at all a pro in fixing them, it is more helpful if you hire experts to avoid waste of time, money, and effort. But if you think the problem is minimal, try fixing it yourself first before asking for help from professionals. Just be sure that you know the basics so you won't complicate the problem more.
