Computers are complex and Windows computers even more so. Not only do you have to deal with a complicated system, no one tells you how to use it. When you first get a Windows PC, there is very little instruction on how to do anything or how to deal with the inevitable problems. So where can you go for information?
You can buy a book and wade through that. Or you can go to the Internet and read some of the articles that have been written about how to use Windows. Much of this material requires more technical knowledge than average home PC users have. It was the very fact that the average home PC user needed a place to find information at the right level that led me to start a number of websites some years ago. For some clearly written, easy to understand articles on how to use Windows and the Internet, take a look at these sites:
