11/27/2009 10:58:20 PM I have not downloaded Windows XP security pack 3 due to enormous problems in trying to do it aout a year ago. Currently my Windows automatic update is reporting successful udates which quickly are replace by a 'reminder' that my computer has upgrades to be installed (?) I am not a computer geek-but only a persoon with a fair intelligence. I also am having a problem every morning with 2 game programs from Yahoo in which the graphic scale goes wacky & I can only see a quarter of the screen. I reboot to change this everyday.

12/2/2009 11:35:46 AM I cannot play some of the more "high end" games,because my graphics card is not strong enough and because I have an older power supply,I cannot upgrade it and will eventually have to get a NEW computer system. I have high speed Internet and this helps alot in downloading things off of the Internet.
