Any suggestions for a good forum to go to discuss computer help? I'm not the techie I was years back but I am still decent at figuring stuff out and like to get my hands dirty but just don't know modern systems like I should. Looking to solve some networking sluggishness on my good computer that doesn't seem to fit any typical problem pattern.

Honestly I found some good computer help right here over the years. In fact I had better luck here than on Windows and Linux boards.

Yup. I would just start a thread on here. OVERKILL is our resident networking guru here. I'm sure he'll be able to offer some valuable advice.

When I had an issue with my new laptop not allowing me to use an external hard drive, I asked here and the Microsoft Windows community. But HP Technical Support had the answer.

bleeping computer dot com has solved many virus issues I had in the past. Even some really nasty ones visiting nephews installed on my wifes machine. Saved me from having to wipe and reinstall windows.

+1 to this sub-forum, tomshardware, and bleepingcomputer. All three are solid resources.
