Computer-Related Sites
I don't want to do a lot of this but there are a few useful ones out there. People who are having computer problems are people who can't come here and order drinks...

Sometimes ya gotta go to sites that aren't too...convenient to access. These might help. Write 'em down...ya never know when we might be next. (Oh, savor the irony...)

If your computer is starting to behave erratically, one sure cure is to go ahead and install a version of tune-up available from www.tune-up.com . Use it to perfom basic maintenance operations that will get you baby back to speed in no time.
It's definitely worth paying a bit of cash for this baby
