    Default Is there an XP idiot's guide?

    Can anyone recommend a decent XP tutorial, I'm used to 98SE and ME - even the work computers are set to look like 98. I need to get used to XP.

    I'm finding the Media Centre a nightmare (not the Media Player) and I can't even remove programs from the start up

    I don't like IE7 and I can't say that I'm fond of the new Firefox (which I use all the time)

    Sorry for having a moan! Thanks

    If you don't like either one of those browsers there are good alternatives you can try.
    Opera
    Flock
    SeaMonkey - combined browser and email manager unless you download only Navigator

    There are others but those popped into my head first. It does not hurt to explore other options in browsers :wink:

    Wow thanks guys

    The tutorial is just what I'm looking for and I've downloaded Opera - I like the look of it compared to IE7 and Firefox, I'll give it a go.

    hello gemini

    the following link leads to a very useful piece of freeware for maintaining your xp environment:

    http://www.ccleaner.com/

    one of ccleaner's features (in the 'tools' tab>startup) easily removes progs from startup.

    Cheers
