Perhaps someone could pity on me and tell me in PLAIN English what I need to do with my computer.

I have a Gateway (at least 3 yrs. old, maybe 4)use AOL and Windows 95. Surfing, newsgroups, this forum, email, some software disks...small time stuff.

I have read and read and I just don't get any sense of what I need to do to make sure it is all compliant.

Also, my husband does occasional spreadsheets for work, but he brings home a disk and takes it back when he is done. I don't really use anything that I manually put dates in for. Does this make any difference?

I know this is really small stuff to you guys and I know I have waited way too long, but can somebody tell me exactly what to do?

Thanks very much.
