This series is for moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas, and anyone else in the family tree who has ever asked their geek relative to “fix” their computer during a holiday visit. It’s for the neophyte or casual computer user who doesn’t want to sit around troubleshooting problems and trying out solutions.

Very good article, I enjoyed reading it. I spotted something out of place - might be just me though - on first page you have a "Lesson 1" heading at the top of article and "Lesson 2" heading at the bottom of article, which is fine.
When I go to page no. 2, it starts with "Lesson 1" heading and then it proceeds to "Lesson 3" heading. Was it meant to be that way, or was the author meant to add Lesson 2 there, or remove Lesson 1 from top, to continue from 1st page?

I don't. How long would it last? 2 years? 5 months? Hours? Maybe I don't understand the statement though. "How quickly something lasts," would be more of an oxymoron, yes?

That section was meant to explain what section 2 will contain, not be

I think in the future we'll be more careful when we just write "section 2" as a heading within the article.
There will be 4 more parts in the series from Tuesday to Friday this week.

I see, thanks for clarifying it. My bad.

@geek Will the hardware cleaning tutorial include laptops as well? I've opened up my laptop once or twice, but the CPU fan is seriously clogged up and I can't reach it without removing a few things that require geek supervision or something.

I don't think we included laptops, since they are all so very different, and many can't really be opened.

Ah, okay then. Guess I'll have to figure it out myself or start convincing my dad to let me build my next PC...
