Lots of good suggestions. Thx very much! I’ll try them all.
You can get one that is over 10 times as powerful as your 8 year old clunker, for about $400. They also transfer all files easily from computer to computer. If your hard drive is still good, you can load it in a spare tray us use it for backup on your new machine. The current machines are awesome with serious graphics/storage performance.
Win. 7 is also a great security based OS. Add the free Security Essentials fire wall and virus program, and you will beat the socks off of Norton or McKafee and not pay another dime on first rate, updated protection. Best of all, you can kiss your “Blue Screen” blues goodbye.
Just a thought......
