I can answer most questions concerning Windows XP. I am very interested in helping others to keep their older computers running since they can perform well if properly maintained. I am not a software or systems expert but usually can help with program applications problems also.

Experience in the area

I am an experienced computer user and an IBM retiree who specialized in computer hardware design and manufacture.

Education/Credentials

Bachelor and Masters degrees in electrical engineering.
