Evenin all.......just wondered if anyone had any ideas about a current pc issue I have.

Recently I sent mine away to have a dodgy hard-drive replaced. Everything zippy & working fine on return, but it was minus my current Norton Antivirus.....and here's the crux, since reinstating the said Norton, the pc is somewhat slower.

Any ideas?

PS, it's still about 10 times as fast as any others I have seen.....nothing as desperate as seeing an 'egg timer' or 'whirly wheel'.

Nice shot of Meg, Ann...thank you.

 Having received my first poinsettia, I've taken the above with the aforementioned 'Adv,' setting.

 I'm jealous, Anne....... the Panasonic Lumix is a brilliant camera and Leica lens is unbeatable.

Hosta. hope you're having fun with your new camera.....I did magnify one of your zoom shots and the detail was amazingly good.

No shame in getting used to a camera using 'auto', but (long term) it would be a shame to deprive yourself of the potential of your camera.

 Nah! It would have looked like this in monochrome.

Ok, Fairygirl.....the general idea is that you can take pictures in monochrome with just pres-selected colours chosen i.e. maybe a field of pumpkins with the camera instructed to highlight orange......I posted one here where I took a pic of a poinsettia with the colour red selected to highlight leaves, etc.

1) set the dial to 'Adv.'

2) click menu

3)  see 'Adv. MODE'

4) click right pointed arrow

5) from the list of colours click the down arrow to choose one of the optional  (probably) colours or other special effects.

Just play around with these settings and have fun.

Fairygirl - Not sure if you know, but there will probably a neat little feature on your camera called 'Advanced filter', indicated by 'Adv.' on the settings wheel, on the top of your camera.....I'll go further into it, if you wish.
