Hi, readers. This is my first review, I received this Compaq computer from my daughter at least four months ago. She first received it from Wal-Mart about 4 years ago. When she first got the Compaq computer it ran very well. It came with Windows XP, and a free trail of A computer vieus protector. It ran very well for her for the four years she had it. Then she wanted to upgrade. So she gave the computer to me. I can say with honesty that after four years and being used by someone else that the Compaq desktop still runs well. I installed the Fix it utilites wizard to clean up the computer, which cleaned it up very well and caused it to run smothly. Even though this is an older model of the Compaq computer, I can say that it still runs well. As long as you do the schduled clean up, virus scanner, and updates you can get good use from this computer. It did not cost much. For someone who is getting a computer for the first time, this Compaq desktop would be a good investment. You can check emails, play games, and surf the web with ease. Thank You.
