Other than the obvious one to not use Windows.
That may sound like a flippant comment, but actually it is not
difficult to move to something like Ubuntu unless you absolutely need
an application that is only available on Windows. I did it some years
ago and have never regretted it. It is great to feel that one is back
in control of one's PC again.


As you and Geert pointed out moving to a Unix based system would be the
smart thing to do, for many reasons.  Unfortunately I am still stuck with
some legacy WidoZe apps for which there are no replacements, yet.  Once I
can find suitable replacements for them I will happily remove the only
legally available computer virus in the world from my computer and go
strictly with a UNIX box.  

You have no idea how happy I was when I discovered GnuCash and it's very
unrelated distant cousin GnuCash for Android.

Since I do not want to take a chance on wiping my windows boot drive just
yet I think I will take your suggestions and try running a copy of Ubuntu in
a VMware box and printing reports from there.  Simple enough to get access
to a copy of my data files.

Thanks for the idea.
