The computers we used when on Freedomlist are like dinosaurs now, the P2 and the P3s. No one even wants them. Saw a youtube video where one person even got an old P2 laptop for 3 bucks on garage sale once, felt quite touching to see. They still mostly work and do their job tho.

I still prefer to use an old P4 mostly. Still have the P2 - IBM Aptiva I used to access FL, it is still functional. This thread has served as a nice healing for FL days.
It seems that I wrote about Enigma ten years ago still applies.  Still a mystery.

Webster Merriman Dictionary:

"One entry found for enigma

 Main Entry: enigĀ·ma

Pronunciation: i-'nig-m&, e-
Function: noun
Etymology: Latin aenigma, from Greek ainigmat-, ainigma, from ainissesthai to speak in riddles, from ainos fable
1 : an obscure speech or writing
2 : something hard to understand or explain
3 : an inscrutable or mysterious person
synonym see MYSTERY"
Zango v Kaspersky was a very powerful win for antimalware in the United States. Surprised Enigma wasn't aware / didn't think it applied / ???

Mine is 1.0.3322 I assume this can change every hour or two.
Actually, removing Java was a good decision -- reinstalling it, not so good. :D  The reason is that there are very few reasons why Java is needed on a personal computer. If it is on the Windows 7 computer, I encourage you to uninstall it.

Any programs that are not initially on the Windows 7 computer will need to be downloaded and installed, not transferred from XP.  This will include CCleaner, Firefox ESR (since the extensions Keith uses are "legacy" and not available with the change to extensions), IrfanView (if it is still used), Malwarebytes, SolidWorks eDrawings and, of course, antivirus software.  Note:  If you elect to continue with AVG, first check that another antivirus software isn't installed on the computer.

Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage:  Obviously, this is no longer supported and I don't believe it included a program for managing email nor do I see another email program installed.  Thus, if Keith uses an online mail service, he will merely need to log on to that account from the new computer to access his email.

As I indicated last night, documents can be copied to CD/DVD or USB.  Do you know how to back up Bookmarks?  The Bookmarks can also be added to the same media as the documents.

One thing that could help in speeding up the computer while copying documents and bookmarks is to disable (or uninstall) AVG as long as the computer isn't connected to the internet.  Other than that, I don't believe there is much more that can be done for this old computer.  IMO, the sooner you move to the new PC, the better.  :)
