Let me make a BIG suggestion to you! If you use your computer quite a bit (school work, research, playtime) and have not cleaned your C drive up - you need to! Following these directions:
  • Make sure that there are NO programs running (ie the internet, a virus protector, AOL instant messenger)
  • Click Start
  • Go to Programs
  • Click Accessories
  • Click System Tools
  • Click Scan Disk
  • A box will appear - make sure your C drive is highlighted. Put a check in the box that says (under type of test) Thorough. Also check the box that is beside the sentence "Automatically fix errors"
  • This will take some time to perform. The amount of time depends on your computer (how quick it is!) Once your systems check is done your computer will run a lot smoother. Do this once a week.

    You should be able to copy and paste from this page....all the spaces have been added, even if it does not look like it! JUST be sure and change all the pertinant information that relates to YOU!
    Make sure and this page!

    Putting A Signature On Your Email

      You have to make up something to save-a quote and your http address is fine-- go to an area where you can write it and save it... like note pad or even a blank page in Microsoft works would do- You take that blank page, and type in what you want to show at the bottom of your mail-
      Type in what you want...then save to your C-drive- this will have to be saved as TEXT document, not just document.
      Go to your mail section, find the OPTIONS...MAIL AND NEWS PREFERENCES........
      then go to Identify- you will see a signature file- Browse until you have the file that you saved- I saved mine as SIGNATURE (duh!!!) click ok.......
      now...once you have finished- go to your mail, and mail me a note- whatever you have saved.....should be on the bottom of the email- like mine is----

    This should generate more traffic to your page- you advertise it each time you send an email!
