Windows In previous OS News articles, I described how mature computers up to ten years oldĀ can be refurbished and made useful. One article identified and evaluated different approaches to refurbishing. This article tells how to performance tune a mature Windows computer to make it serviceable again. I hope it will interest anyone who wants to tune Windows.

If it was not under the control of a trusted user then it should be assumed to be compromised.

I don't care if you use every scanner on the market, they still don't eliminate the risk of passing on a trojan.

Could you imagine someone getting a computer from charity and then having their identity stolen as the result?

Format C and if there is no XP key then put Linux on it. Tell the user where they can take the computer if they ever want to have Windows installed.
