Windows 7 Home 64 bit

Hi Layback Bear,

Sorry if there was some confusion. My friend knows nothing about computers so I have volunteered to do it for him. I also set it up for him when he first got it. I've moved it from his house to mine as I suspect it could be a lengthy process. After a career in IT I've now been retired for nearly 20 years so my technical knowledge of today's pcs is sketchy, however I can appreciate the risks posed when a professional hacker has had access. Your. and others, advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
