I have a couple of programs that are acting up.
If I un-install and re-install them, will that cause me to also lose the data and documents that were created with those programs?
This might help.
The documents you created with the programs will be fine as long as they aren't stored somewhere among the program files that are going to be deleted. Like if you have them on the desktop or on a USB stick they'll be fine.
But any settings that are stored in the program files will disappear unless you find a way to export them. For example, if you created a special template, that might get erased. Or if you're uninstalling a browser you'll have to export your bookmarks to avoid losing them. Hope that makes sense.
You can save all your files and documents created in the Google Drive or into a pen drive (USB), etc. and then safely uninstall and re-install your programs.
I always save my files on Google Drive. It is a very safe place. One benefit is you can access your files from anywhere in the world when you store them in the Google Drive.

I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??

OK, I must admit my lack of expertise. Can someone please help me out? Will saving too many things to my desk top slow down my computer? My husband keeps everything. I probably keep too much. Can someone guide us please?
