    Blind leading the blind

    Hi I'm Laurie and I know enough about computers to correct some issues and to , sometimes, make them worse.

    I really need help with Windows 10. It's the OS from hell, IMNSHO. And I find myself having to help numerous people with issues. I'm no pro, far from it, and I'm hoping I can find direction here.

    Hi Laurie and Welcome.

    I do understand that W10 can have a steep learning curve, but it really is the best and most secure Windows to date. But with 30+ million lines of programming code, it is not perfect. Fortunately, there are some top expert volunteers here at Sysnative more than willing to help you sort your problems out.
