Don't let my mom read this strip! She is paranoid enough about hurting the computer as is. hahaha
She has owned one since 2002 but barely knows how to check her email, no matter how patiently I try to explain anything to her on the phone.
That reminds me of the usual advice our IT helpdesk gives us. That and their other line are top advice in their preference list: "Turn off your computer, wait 5 seconds, then turn it back on". Funny enough, in 8 out of 10 of my PC problems, restarting my computer actually did solve the problem.
