I'm writing this post on my new computer!  It's working great.  I'm so used to my old computer crashing, that I'm sitting here still being struck with terror every time something takes more than a millisecond.  Hopefully, I'll get over that soon.

 

I haven't installed any of my hdds, printer, speaker system yet but the internet/installing programs/accessing external hdds/etc are working great.  I think I'm going to be very happy with it.

 

Thanks again for all your help with trying to fix my old computer and helping me pick my new one.  Your assistance was very much appreciated.

That is great news ad am pleased that you are a happy camper.

It's been enjoyable giving you a hand.

 

More nagging.   I don't use, nor recommend ccCleaner.   It has a bad habit of removing shared files like dlls.   Weeks later a application calls for a file and the computer crashes, "a file is missing and the program needs to close" vor similar.

There is never a need to "clean" the registry.   Obsolete keys just sit there, dong nothing and don't impact performance; sorry, my favourate winge.   I only use Rivo Uninstaller, which has good cleanup tools, but even then you should be careful when using it.

 

Should you wish to, you can create a partition on the first drive you install and move some or all your user  folder to it from the C: drive.   I do it for Documents and Videos.

 

Anyway, keep in touch and let us know how things go.
