    Re: Doing the HAPPY DANCE!!

    I installed the Norton Utilities that Comcast offered. This computer is
    used mostly as a school computer (we homeschool) so not a lot of Internet
    usage. Norton includes a spyware (but I have been using SpyBot for years,
    just haven't installed anything else on this particular one).

    Thank you for the link to that info - I will go over it carefully. Still
    having a couple of issues - doesn't want to reboot for some reason, just
    hangs on the "shutting down" screen occasionally, but I can live with that &
    research how to fix it.

    I do appreciate everyone's help, and apologize to those who are annoyed at
    how I've posted. I've learned a lot, and truly am grateful for everyone's
    expertise. My daughter is so thrilled about having her computer up and
    running.

    Re: Doing the HAPPY DANCE!!

    Not to the best of my knowledge - I don't see any links for signing up, nor
    any sign of a trial version on the hard drive. I installed from a Windows
    disk & only got drivers from a back-up source.
