    Highly recommended

    I recently purchased this book and it has already paid for itself. Although I am no computer wizard, this book has guided me through problems that previously would have sent me to a computer store and be taken for a ride. It gives you step by step instructions on what to do and also warns you with regards to certain tasks that may make matters worse if you are not sure of what you are doing. Mr. Boyce has really been around computers for quite awhile.
