I popped round to Joan’s (a friend of David and Val’s) to sort out some niggles with her laptop.
- Sluggish performance
- Error message on start-up
- Google toolbar auto-fill option was auto-filling!
- Outlook Express pointing to an out-of-date email account
There was nothing seriously wrong with the machine although it was suffering (performance-wise) with a lack of RAM (only 512 Mb).
I ran a number of diagnostics and generally cleaned up the machine. I wouldn’t say it was much faster, but it’s certainly a lot tidier.
I left Joan to work-through the 900+ queries that Tune-up Utilities 2009 had identified.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
