I've been unfortunate enough to have my pc infected by a virus on 2 or 3 occasions over the past 12 months or so (no I didn't open any attachments, or download anything "dodgy or use p2p). After yet another visit to the local pc shop, I decided enough was enough and that it was time to take a more active interest in the pc.

I've just loaded Ubuntu 11.10 alongside XP as a dual boot system (might need to keep some windows docs/programs) though I'm still stumbling my way around it at the min.

Just saying hello - I'm sure I'll have lots of questions in the coming few weeks!

Michael

Hello and welcome. Feel free to ask away, but read the sticky post at the top of the Help section first.
