Aaaargh! I almost completed a reply and poof! By getting worse, it's shutting down more often. MUCH more often. Sometimes I can stay online for a couple of hours, but most of the time that's the limit without it shutting down.
Tks, Corrine. At first I was aggravated at the thought of buying a new computer because 'we've' fixed this one before.
Besides, this one is not that old and I didn't want to spend the money on it. But the more I think about it the more excited I get. I'm tired of messing with this one. It will be like losing an old friend, ya know?
Good idea about giving it to the boys. We bought them one last year for Christmas and they love it. We have all the safeguards on it for them. They're 5 & 7 and the 7 yr old is a genius. Not bragging, just fact.
He can whiz around that thing like nobody's business. It's amazing to watch him. They enjoy watching Dinosaur movies on it and when Christopher (7 yr old) thinks of ANYTHING that he doesn't know about, he immediately has to 'google' it. He does the same thing here. I'm always with them when they play on my computer. And yes, I can sing the Dinosaur King song, lol.
Tks for the websites. I've saved them for future use. I'm sure I'll be referring to them a lot. I've had XP so long it will be like saying good-bye to an old friend.
I know where to come when I have computer problems. You guys and gals are the best in the biz by far! Thanks again.
