All you need to know about computers and the internet in 500 frequently asked questions!

Don't Panic is one of the most popular columns in The Sunday Times in terms of the mailbag it attracts. Techno-guru Nigel Powell provides weekly advice in question and answer form, responding to readers' queries on computing and allied topics - and he makes sure those answers are clear and non-technical.

Everyone who uses a computer encounters problems and will frequently not understand the advice given in manuals or on `help' screens. Nigel Powell tackles that problem by giving clear, non-technical and easy-to-follow advice.
