I spend about 50% of my time on computer working, and the other 50% getting the damn things to run. (A desktop and a notebook running XP and a new notebook running Vista). Does it really have to be this complicated? I have been told I could be dead of cancer in 2 - 3 months, or I could go another 20 years. Either way, I have a lot to do, so I would appreciate anyone who can give me a simple way to keep these machines in good running order. I would also like to pass along the knowledge to my wife, who is much less technically inclined than I am.
