I received a phone call from Microsoft the other day, telling me I had all manner of problems with my PC. Something didn’t feel right, so I hung up. Was I right?

My old PC is getting slower and slower but I don’t want to buy a new one. New PCs have lots of memory – would an external drive help?

As a Virtual Personal Assistant, I need a reliable internet connection, so my broadband router is in my office next to my PC. Everywhere else in the house has a weak wireless signal – is there any way to make it better? I want to be an Office Hound, not officebound.

My colleague has offered to show me his dongle. Should I feign interest or slap him?

My broadband seems to be fine most of the time but I lose connection every time the phone rings. Help!

My computer seems to be extra noisy lately. The other day it started to just turn itself off – I’d be using it for around 20 minutes and then it would go, no errors or warnings. Help?

I’ve been sent a new wireless router. It’s confusing to set up and I’m scared of the security issues. Do I have to use it?
Happy as I am of Herne Bay.
I was given a new laptop for Christmas. I hear so many horror stories about PC problems, how can I avoid trouble?
