My HP laptop had a catastrophic failure and died at the end of last month, so I haven't been back here for a bit. Yesterday I got my new Dell hot purple laptop (with Windows 7, ick), so I'm back again! Smile

This one doesn't have any of the nice movie editing/creating tools my other one had (it's still being repaired by HP), only the new Windows Movie Maker. So I think my ambition to make a fan video is never to be fulfilled. Sad

But I'm happy to be back for some "Paul-ing"!

Welcome back VirgoGirl! Smile

Maybe the new Win MM will work better? Good luck, hope to see more caps and (fingers crossed) a fan vid from you soon. Very Happy

Thanks! Smile

I don't hold out much hope for WMM, it's now Windows Live Movie Maker and wants me to set up an online account to use it.

As far as screen capping goes, I haven't installed that program yet. It doesn't do a clean uninstall, leaving residue on the computer which I then can't find and delete. I find that really, really disturbing.

I hate computers. Mad

I have a love/hate relationship with my computers. Today though, it's 'love'. Very Happy

LOL! I have those days too! Lately, though, it'd been more like I'm afraid of my computer. My husband thinks I'm nuts, but he doesn't have the history of killing computers like I do. At least this time it seems to have been a design problem of the computer and not something I *did* to it.

I'm being really cautious with this new Dell. I actually like my old HP better, it's much bigger with more screen size and a 4th USB port. And a hardrive light. And the ability to turn off my modem with an external switch. Did I mention that I hate computers? Wink Laughing
