7:00pm – Get the Cobwebs Out Of Your Computer Drop In
Feeling helpless when your computer starts to act sluggish? There's good news! You can fix most of those problems yourself. It is not necessary. But feel free to bring your own laptop and follow along while I walk through the steps, using the software. Learn how to “…get the cobwebs out”. The class is aimed to help people at all comfort levels, managing their computers. You'll receive an email after the lecture that will include step by step instructions on how to do exactly the same as demonstrated in the lecture, using free software. Direct links (“Links” will be explained in the lecture) will also be included to save you the trouble of going through the “Google Gauntlet” to find what you want. You will also receive my phone number and email address in the email I send, to contact me, anytime, if you have questions or get stuck.  We can also set up a 1 on 1 session together and work on your computer together.
Instructor: Dave Fetter.
