When my laptop became Registry corrupted, I launched into an attempt to fix it and in doing so, to save me a bundle of money.
By using SAFE MODE, DOS commands in Emergency disk, System Recovery, and then my Security Suite, I got my laptop back on with no loss except the
offending software. I’ll have a Power Point presentation to describe the job and how each step can be useful to you. I’ll also
describe a Registry Cleaner discovered in PC Magazine, which completed the task in an inexpensive manner.

Tax season is in full swing! Even if you have a professional preparer do them for you, you should have an
understanding of what happens to your money. Virginia State Tax can be very friendly to Seniors. Income Subtractions and
Deductions granted by the State can make significant reductions to that tax. No tables, forms, or calculations, just explanations of
the most significant ways to reduce your Virginia tax liability.
