Hello and welcome to the "PC Doctor's Fix It Yourself Guide" book club. My name is Adrian W. Kingsley-Hughes, and I am 'The PC Doctor'.
If you're here on Barnes and Noble I know one thing about you instantly -- you have a computer. I can't tell what kind of computer you have or what operating system and programs you have installed on it, but I know for certain that you are sitting in front of a keyboard and a screen as you are reading this. What else can I tell about you? Well, if you spend any time in front of a PC then there's a very good chance that at some point you've had some sort of problem with your PC. Maybe it didn't start up right, or maybe it crashed and you lost your work, or maybe it became infected by a virus and started to misbehave.
My reason for writing The PC Doctor's Fix It Yourself Guide was to pass on information to help you to take control of your PC, as well as helping you to get the most out of your PC by showing you what all the parts are, what they do, how to repair and replace components and how to rid your PC of nasties like viruses and adware.

Good to see you back in BNU whatever the form. At least we know you are here. I had missed this earlier when I looked in. M.
