Which? Any free guides?

Hello i think before i have seen on TV that I can get a free "which?" guide which helps me learn about computer software and operating system tips,

Its not for me one of my family members they are buying a new laptop and completly new to it and i thought they would benefit from it,

Anyway if i am right i have tryed looking and i couldnt really find anything about it but could anyone point me in the right direction or link?

Paul,

As the new laptop is likely to come pre-installed with Windows 7 don't forget to point them in the direction of our tutorials here - They beat the rest out there

Also, if they are complete beginners then there are basic CLAIT courses available from your local council - these are often free or only nominal cost, check your local library or council website

You might have seen the "Video Professor" series. They get advertised a lot. I would be leery of anything on TV advertised as "free". Either you're going to end up paying $10 S&H for a worthless "free" CD or there is some other catch.

(Read the comments for an idea of what "free" gets you.)

Rep for that.

(EDIT: Can't - too soon...)

I think the best way to learn anything is to ask specific questions about specific problems. Send them a link here and they'll become an expert in no time.

As was said above, stay away from Video Professor. It is a scam. They say they are free but you have to give them a credit card number for the "low handling fee" and they end up charging about $60 on your card. Is Video Professor a Scam??? - Jon Payne (.net)

I have developed classes for my computer club that may be useful. The people in my club are mainly older folks with only very basic PC knowledge. The classes come as PDFs and Videos (more than 3 hours worth). You can download the zip folder from here ( System Facilities Class.zip - Windows Live ). It contains all the links to the videos and to a lot of other educational material.
