I am happy to report that my computer at last seems to be fixed! After removing Norton Antivirus on Monday, and reinstalling Outlook yesterday, my computer is running faster than it has all month. This morning my computer started up in a matter of minutes, and Outlook loaded almost instantly. Wow! I'd actually forgotten what that was like!
The computer problems of the past few days have put me behind, but for the most part I should be able to catch up quickly. The only thing that is worrying me is a rather involved assignment that is due on Monday. I will need to hustle on that one!
