A late entry for me tonight.  I'm on my E-Machine again.  I called Joey today and bit the bullet.  Actually, the hard drive was fine.  Everything was still on it which was a surprise although Becky said she thought the motherboard wouldn't wipe out the hard drive.  Performance wise....the E-Machine is lacking but still adequate.  It is more user friendly but not nearly as fast as the one Becky built.

Becky is taking the new one to Pitt and reconfiguring the Windows problem.   We still need a monitor for it.  There is already a wireless device in it so it can be anywhere in the house and tap into the DSL.

Last night I moved all my documents from that computer into my external drive.  Now, I'm slowly moving them back in here.

The only problem I experienced was the E-Machine came back with all the Norton programs in it.  AOL couldn't update or run the McAfee Virus Scan or firewall.  I had to reinstall it again.  It runs under AIM with Megan's SN and password.  The little stinker changed her password.  ROFL, does she have a surprise.  I used my Master SN and changed the password.  She must be out tonight because I'm expecting a phone call.  That one is going to blow a major fuse over this.

I'll be around to visit tomorrow.  It's almost midnight, and I have to get my butt to bed.  Nite all...anybody have any big St. Patty's Day plans?  Roll out that green beer........

I'm glad you have your e-machine back!  You are, right?  I hate computer problems!  I have no clue what you are talking about with all the computer mumbo-jumbo.  I just sign on my laptop & do my thing!  If something were to happen to it, I would be SOL...for sure!  ha ha ha....I never thought about putting my documents into an external drive....honestly I don't know what that means, but it does sound important!  Maybe I'd better look into it, huh?  Yeah, that is what I LOVE about DSL the most...Amy & I can get on our laptops anywhere in the house because they have built in wireless access!!  It is the greatest!  I love it!  Have a great St. Patty's Day!
Hugs,Linda

We used to use Norton.  I hated it.  The aol security center with McAfee is very good!

lots of people were having trouble with AOL and Norton. Seems like you were a busy bee with all that computer work. In case I don't get back, congrats on being a guest editor's pick for your CABS creation journal! A well deserved honor

You know, I've seen quite a few people talking about the norton not running with the dsl properly.  I personally was having more problems with the AOL spyware so I just got rid of that and everything worked fine.  But I don't use NOrton either, I think it's called AVAST.  Too funny about the password.  Big surprise. lol  GBU, Shelly
