    GEEKS ON CALL -- My heroes!

    I'm only marginally proficient with computers, so when the usual computer glitches and hiccups happen -- everything freezes up or slows down or I can't get an Internet connection -- I need help in the form of clear, simple, step-by-step instructions. I've found this to be not merely the most helpful book but often the only helpful book for the job. How did the Geeks fit everything I've needed into one little 200-page paperback? I don't know, but God bless 'em.
