Question by PkrFan: What type of computer should I get?
I’m not a computer genius at all. I basically use mine for the internet, MS word, excel and a few casino games. The computer that I have now is a Dell with 1.8 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, Pentium (R) 4CPU, with Windows XP home edition. (Of course being a novice none of that makes sense to me)
The reason I’m thinking of getting a new computer is that I was typing a report on Word and a box popped up saying something, from what I can remember of it, C+++error. When I x’d out of the message I lost my report. I went and tried it again two more times and the same thing happened. The frustrating part I was only 2 paragraphs into my report so of course I had not saved it at that point. I was so ready to throw the whole thing out the window.
I was going to unistall word and re-install it, however I am missing disk #1 so that option is out, and that is why I’m turning to you.
Thank-you for any advice you can give me and suggestions which computer is a good one to purchase.

There doesnt seem to any need for change of PC for you. All it seems to me is that your Operating System, Windows (i assume) is corrupted. Have a thorough virus scan, and preferably, get the system reinstalled.
