    Hello everyone, my name is Virginia & I’m from the U.K.
    I’ve been using computers since XP days. My knowledge has built up through personal use & having to fix my own (& others) PC problems.
    I was thrown in the deep end immediacy after purchase of my first tower system, I ended up messing it up within 30 minutes of first setting it up.
    I called HP technical support who had me try several things but it soon became obvious that a clean install of Windows was required, I was so scared that even though I was taken through each step I actually didn’t do anything & just said all was OK.
    After a good cry I eventually realised that I had to go through with the clean install & did so & with relief I realised it was so easy.
    Now I’m much older & wiser & now I use Macrium Reflect premium which has got me out of many a pickle.

    Hello Virginia and Welcome to Computer Help Forums.

    The first install of Windows can be scary, for sure.
    Macrium Reflect is an excellent program, I use it myself.

    Hello and welcome. You can learn here. I've been working with computers for some time and the one thing I know is that no one knows everything. Ask your questions.
