Windows 95 is Back, and I Couldn’t Be Happier!
If you’re like me, you feel that the cutting-edge features and layout of Windows 10, awesome as they are, are missing something. What precisely that “something” is can be difficult to describe, but I can safely say that Windows 95 had it.
(And if you’re not like me—if you’re too young to be like me—you’d better read on and see what Windows 95 was all about; what a real operating system is made of.)

Your computer’s been running slow, hasn’t it? I’m sorry to hear that, but it may be time to face the facts and find out whether your laptop is simply old and slow, or worse, infected with a malware. These threats are more common with increased age of the computer, and often dictate whether you might as well purchase a new system.
The chances of your laptop being infected by malware are probably lower than the chances that it’s just old and slowing down with the times. It is important to factor both possibilities but running a simple malware scan to find a definite cause isn’t a bad idea at all. Read more “Laptop Slowdown: Is It Malware or an Older System?”
