My laptop clicks and whirrs, esp. booting up. Occas. the screen or parts of the screen, go black. The touch bar stopped working properly a few months
ago, so I had to start using a wireless mouse. which I still don't like! All this
to put off the inevitable, of getting a new laptop. To me, I don't know about other people, but, to me, it's a huge hassle - to switch from one computer to
another. I don't like doing it! But I guess I'm going to have to. Anyway,
thanks so much, Babalu for your top laptop list. I had Windows 7, too, now
I'll probably have to upgrade to who knows what. I'm not looking forward to
this. Thanks for the backup tip, too! So, if you suddenly don't see me for a
while, you'll know why! LOL

I used to use XP many years ago as one of my very first computers. Unfortunately, there was a virus due to one of the screensavers, so we had to get rid of the computer not long after the virus happened.

The old keyboard is still somewhere at my house though.

FYI, no matter how bad a virus is, it only affects the software, not the physical machine. You never have to throw out a computer because of a virus.

I guess you didn't understand. The computer software could have a thousand viruses. None of that affects the physical parts of the computer like the hard drive or disk drive. Once you wipe the software clean you have a brand new computer. If you have a cold or the flu your house doesn't get sick, only the people in it.

You're right, I didn't.
