 +The Computer Club web site contains several interesting SIG (Special Interest Group) sections. I really wish the "Search" feature on the Computer Club web site was more functional. There is a lot of information in the SIG sections. A lot of time was invested by volunteers to share their knowledge and experience.
 +
 +[[https://www.sctexas.org/club/scripts/memfac/memfac.asp?NS=MEMFAC&MFCODE=SIG_WINDOWS|Windows SIG]] Some of the history of the Windows Sig is contained in the web site [[https://sctxwindows.com|sctxwindows.com]], created by Bill Buppert, one of the earlier participants in the Computer Club and a significant contributor to the evolution of the Help Center. Bill chose to require you to register to look at the content of his site. The site is a good resource of knowledge and experience. You may find the [[http://sctxwindows.com/Tutorials|Tutorial ]]section helpful.

 +[[https://www.sctexas.org/club/scripts/memfac/memfac.asp?MFCODE=CCLUB_SEC#sidebar|Security SIG]] As relates to Windows security, John Jenkinson has been maintaining a [[https://sccccyber.blogspot.com/#sidebar|BLOG]] about security issues. [[https://krebsonsecurity.com/|KrebsOnSecurity]] may open your eyes about internet security.

 +[[https://christitus.com/|Chris Titus ]]is a resource for computer knowledge in several domains. The material he covers can be educational and helpful. This is a video about [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXXgbGwEnYw|Windows Utilities]]. Here is a video from April 2019 about [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVy4GAtkh7Q|Windows setup]]. Watching this video will give you a taste of Chris Titus. This item and video are more current. The process depends on a PowerShell script. [[https://christitus.com/debloat-windows-10-2020/|Debloat Windows]] is the text version and this is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E6OT_QcHaU|Debloat Video]].

 +[[https://archive.org/web/web.php|The internet archive]] is a goldmine of "older versions" of internet websites. It is hard to believe that an organization creates "snapshots"\\
 +of the internet and makes those snapshots available to the world, for free. WOW!!! If you want an "older" version of a file you downloaded from a website, it is possible you can find it on the internet archive. When I discovered that later versions of minitool required payment for a feature that used to be free, I went to the internet archive and chose a snapshot that contained the older version of the software.
