Convert Exercise Tapes To DVDI have been slowly saving my exercise VCR tapes to DVD. By the time I really need to do this, the VCR/DVD recorders will be out of fashion, I am sure. So, if you have a favorite VCR tape that might not have been popular enough to be brought back to life as a DVD, keep this in mind!

Trouble Finding Correct Web PageI am looking for help for my computer. I am the only one who uses it. Two things are happening: when I do either a search engine search or an address bar entry, the resulting page is a porn site. I tried to type in my state official license site for my teaching degree and I get porn. When I try and close it, more pages come up. My security and filtering is set on high. I have no idea how to fix this. Help! I'm sick of porn! My computer also is running so slow and it's less than a year old. Any suggestions? Thanks!
