COMPUTER TUTOR's Windows Introduction and Tips and Tricks http://ctutor.com/tips.htm

Great site for those inexperienced Windows users that are just starting out. While not indepth on any topic, it touches on topics from the absolute beginning of how to START, to bits about the Taskbar and Shortcuts. Nice page to print and give to a friend who just brought home their computer today!

NetSquirrel by Patrick Crispin

Patrick wrote an absolutely excellent tutorial on everything related to the Internet. It's now a few years old, and gone away. Fortunately, he still does lots of articles and presentations to help new users out. He not only helps with the Internet, he has helpful articles on computer basics like Securing Windows, privacy issues, slow computer maintenance. Visit his site, and you will be glad you did.

Run alternately with his Cohort above, Bob Rankin and Patrick have a world reknown newsletter and an excellent website that has many things but my two favorites are the archives of his newsletter (which you should subscribe to!) and his Best Of Everything pages http://www.internettourbus.com/best.html which have 'the best' links to sites in MANY, categories from the A's of almanacs, anti-spam, anti-virus, astronomy, and auctions to the W's of weather, webmaster, women, and word fun.
