Updating Windows XP
You can make sure your computer function optimally by performing regular maintenance.
Keeping your software up to date is the first and most important step in keeping your 
computer healthy. Operating system developers have continued to make the process of
updating your software easier over the last few years, making it a simple task to 
update Windows.

Updating Windows

Windows and the core utilities that come with it are the most important factors
in the performance and reliability of your computer. You can update your Windows 
system software by visiting

    1. Select Product Updates

    2. The first updates that to be installed are the Critical Updates. 
       These updates fix security holes and vulnerabilities and may require a 
       reboot after they have been installed.

       - Check back often to make sure that you are current on all the 
         Critical Updates, as they are released frequently.

       - Windows ME/2000/XP users have the option of making Critical Updates 
         automatic in the Control Panel found in the Start Menu (sometimes 
         found under the Settings submenu). Once in the Control Panel, 
         open Automatic Updates and turn on automatic updating.

       - If you are using Windows XP and do not see Automatic Updates in the 
         Control Panel, click "Switch to Classic View" on the left to change
         the view.

    3. Next on the Windows Update list are Optional Windows Update and Driver
       Updates. Keeping on top of these updates is a good habit. Windows XP
       will not automatically install these updates so you must visit the 
       Windows Update website to install them.

    4. If you are a user of Microsoft Office your must visit that update site as well:"

    5. Updates to most other programs can usually be found on the software 
       manufacturer's website.

Regular Hard Drive Maintenance
Disk Cleanup and Defragmentation
        Click the Icon      Start (in lower left corner of your screen) 
       		select             All Programs
       		select             Accessories
       		select             System Tools
       		select             Disk Cleanup
       After you are finished the Cleanup (follow the same steps above):
       		select             Disk Defragmenter
       I have moved both icons to my regular desktop and perform those
       regularly to keep my machine operating optimally.

It is intended for the Computer Group Members.

No endorsement by Lakemont Ridge should be implied.
Material presented here is for the use of Group Members

(Unofficial Copy of the Rules & Regulations)


We ask that you please read these rules, as they will be strictly enforced!

Management has taken all reasonable means to ensure that your residency here will be safe, pleasant and enjoyable. This property is privately owned, and management is obligate to abide by all laws, Federal, State and local, or to certain regulation of administrative bodies of the government. Many of the following rules and regulations are required by law, and others are for your safety, health, and welfare, as well as for the protection of the property rights of management. Consideration and courtesy to others together with your cooperation in maintaining your unit will help sustain the standards of Lakement Ridge Home & RV Park. Therefore, the following rules and regulations are for your guidance and observances.


  1. Anyone not complying with park rules after notice given by management will be given legal notice to vacate the park.

  2. All rents are due on the 1st of the month. After 10 days there will be a late charge of $25.00 added to your account.

  3. All prospective home buyers must be approved by management before the sale. You must qualify to lease a lot in order to own a home in the park.

  4. There is a speed limit in the park of 10 MPH. This speed limit must be observed by all vehicles traveling in the park.

  5. It is important that we respect out neighbor's privacy and property. Disturbing noises are not allowed at any time. Quiet time is required between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am. Televisions, radios, and stereos must be kept low at all times. No alcoholic beverages shall be consumed outside the units. Disorderly conduct, intoxication, and profane language will not be tolerated. Any persons causing a disturbance or being a nuisance may be required to vacate the park.

  6. No peddling, solicitations, or commercial enterprises shall be allowed in the park unless deemed by management to be a worth cause or unless permitted by Florida Statue 723.054(3).

  7. Pets are a privilege we allow in our park. Our dog regulations are on a separate sheet as the back of this booklet. Feeding and watering of stray animals is strictly prohibited.

  8. The sewage treatment plant is operated by management, and its proper operation is important to all residents. The plant will not operate properly if cigarette butts, sanitary napkins, paper towels and napkins, candy wrappers, fruit or other bulky items such as plastic wrappers are thrown in toilets. This means in your own unit as well as the public restroom's. The unit owner is responsible for the maintenance of the water and sewer lines from the ground up.

  9. All guests of resident shall comply with all rules and regulations of the park. The host resident shall be responsible for any breach of the rules and regulation by a guest. Additionally, the host resident shall be responsible for any and all damages caused by his guest and any fees secured during his guests stay at the park. The host resident must accompany any visitor to the recreational facilities. No one under the age of eighteen may use any park facilities without the resident host's supervision. This included the riding of bicycle on the streets in the park. Guests are welcome, as long as they abide by the park rules, and their resident host is presently in the park.

  10. There is no smoking in any of the park's buildings. Smokers must extinguish and properly dispose of all cigarette butts. Please do not throw the cigarette butts on the ground.

  11. No fence of any type shall be allowed on the lot. There shall be no outdoor clotheslines except one umbrella type clothesline, whose location is approved by management. There shall be no burning allowed on any lot.

  12. Use caution when at the swimming pool; there is no lifeguard on duty. No guests or children of guests are allowed at the pool without the resident host's supervision. All residents and their guests use these facilities at their own risk.

  13. The park reserves a right-of-way five feet wide strip bordering all streets on which nothing can be planted or built.

  14. Repairing of motor vehicles in the park is prohibited except for minor repairs such as tire change, battery replacement, fan belt or water hose replacement. You must take care of removal of all tires, batteries, etc. to a proper disposal place. They must not be placed in or around the dumpsters. You may change your oil in the storage area if you provide a proper container for used oil and dispose of it in the proper manner. Most auto parts stores will accept used oil.

  15. No signs except name signs and street addresses or lot number shall be placed, erected or displayed on any lot unless having to do with a park function. A 'for sale" sign may be placed inside a window or your unit if it is for sale, and notice of units for sale may be placed ion the board in the office. No "for rent", "for hire", or "wanted" signs are allowed, and no signs offering to perform any service or to sell any product shall be displayed anywhere in the park.

  16. No garage, porch, yard or similar sales shall be conducted in the park other than the park's annual garage sale hosted by the activities committee.

  17. All units must be kept clean and free of mold and mildew. All tools, mowers, ladders and similar items shall be stored in the home in an approved storage shed. Storage of any kind is prohibited in any exposed area on your lot.

  19. Residents are required to conserve water. Watering of lawns shall be conduct only as per posted rules. Automobiles and RVs may be washed on your lot as long as shut off nozzles are used.

  20. Managements reserved the right of access on any lot for the purpose of inspection and/or maintenance. All lots shall be properly maintained by the resident. This shall include an obligation to keep the exterior of all units in a clean and mildew-free condition, to properly keep the roofs, gutters, down spouts, shrubs, grass, walkways, and any other landscaping and any other exterior improvements trim and neat in appearance. In the event resident shall fail to maintain the exterior of his lot or unit in accordance with the above, then after ten days notice to the resident, the park manager shall have the ability to come upon the leased premises and perform such maintenance as required. Management shall then charge the tenant wit the cost of said maintenance. For the purpose of performing the exterior maintenance authorized by this rule management shall have the right to enter upon any lot or exterior of any unit at any reasonable time provided the manager shall not in the performance of these functions unreasonably interfere with the unit owner's enjoyment of the lot and the manager shall not thereby be deemed guilty of trespassing for such entry.

  21. Residents who leave the park for the summer or for vacation will be held responsible for the condition of their unit and their lot while they are gone.

Management understands that these rules and regulations may not cover all situations that may occur within our park but hopes that common sense will be used by all residents.

Thank you for taking the time to read through our rules and regulations.
