Hey Zara! Are you afraid
of change? The reason I’m asking you this. If you are and
you are sayig you like xp. Trust me I’ve been there! I was
not so scared to go windows 7. But I was afraid of ten. I’m
here on ten and still trying to adjust! My 7 box sound card
burned out. So did some of my usb ports. That 7 box was
going down the tube. Now I’m on ten. I try to do things
like I did with 7. Because I forget this is win ten. It
takes getting used to. You really need to let xp go. I say
this because Rosemarie is right one day your xp box wil bite
the dust. It will badly slow down on you it may not go on
the web very well. Trust me Zara I’ve been there. With my
xp box it would not go on IE quickly. I had to give it to a
sighted person. Not trying to scare you Zara. Reallity is
you have to move on like it or not.
