Make Windows Recovery Media now

By PETE NEWELL For the Express   In the good old days, computer manufacturers used to provide a set of system disks such as an actual Windows installation disk and one or more driver, utility, and supplemental program disks.

Remember those who sacrificed on Memorial Day Dear Editor, Memorial Weekend is coming up very quickly. Us local folks are scurrying around preparing ourselves for the summer residents who are coming up for the summer or just opening their homes away from home.
