Default Tech issues: Could we sticky a thread?

Folks seem to ask a lot of tech questions, especially in the OT forum, and the same themes come up over and over. I was wondering if perhaps we could sticky a thread? I'd volunteer to write a "first steps" type of post.

Let me start a new one, with some general guidelines. If it's okay, go ahead and sticky it. If it's not, delete it and PM me, and we'll talk abut how to make it right...sound like a plan?

(Off to start a thread in the OT section...)

Personally, I have never heard of cclear. I highly and regularly recommend ccleaner, and have been using it for YEARS. If you downloaded something called cclear, you may very well have gotten yourself some rogueware.

CCleaner does NOT take over a computer, does not run in the background, and works very well. It requires nothing beyond the windows uninstaller to remove. Last I checked, it DID offer to install chrome, but that offer is easily declined by unchecking a box. Chrome does not take over a computer either and is, in fact, the most recommended browser for older XP machines.
