Hi, gang, brand new here. Since the wife and I now both have Windows 8.1, I figured it was time I found out where the knowledge base was, as it's quite different from XP and Vista, which we had previously. The wife got her computer in May and I just got mine, after having mine for nearly 10 years. It's still a great computer, but naturally, some sites are getting harder to load-some not loading at all. I'm liking Win 8 for the most part, but I'll bet I'll find some tweaking here that will be beneficial to both of us. I'll try not to be TOO pesty.:D

Might as well post in here too. I've already started a thread about help with my windows 8 tablet but I didn't notice the welcome thread.

I'm a bit of an intermediate computer user and I've been known to tinker around them a few times but there's still a lot that I need to learn.

    This is a custom made build PC that I put together. It may be low on the spec sheet but its decent enough to run a few games.
