I don't remember where it's saved I'm physically connected to an Ethernet network or I am within range of a wireless one but I cannot access the networkMy computer is running slower than normal I think I might have a virus. How do I find out? I want to watch TV on my computer but I can't. Why not? When I insert a CD, DVD, or other media, I am either not prompted regarding what I'd like to do or I don't like the program or window that opens when the media is inserted I can't see, hear, or navigate the computer the way I'd like to due to a disability I have shared a printer but it still can't be accessed by other computers on my network My computer is acting up. It was fine yesterday, but today I can't open my favourite program or access the Internet, or I have another problem I can't connect to the Internet
