Hi Im back after a massive problem (to me)last week I had the big blue screen and could not boot up not in safe or any other options, I re installed windows XP from the recovery disk Evesham provided with the system 3 years ago, Now then "Why did it go wrong? Why does my LCD screen have tiny type and Icons,it had larger ones before. What is the best Anti virus, and firewall and what would be the best way to back everything up as I have lost valuable work,Im confused after reading the article in PCA, Have any of you got the Maxtor one touch External hard drive ? I did back up a Vintage show programme I am making but that was early April so I lost a lot after that date How do I stop these pop ups which keep "popping up " as I type. Prof.
