    You do not have a Windows key or a Pause Break key on your keyboard?
    The Windows key, is located between the CTRL and ALT keys

    I can't speak for his machine, but a lot of older keyboards don't have a Windows Key. The instructions I gave him (above) will accomplish the same thing without it.

    He can also Right-Click on the "My Computer" desktop icon and select "Properties".

    Right, most, if not all keyboards made since 1995 will include the Win key. But the PauseBreak key has been on keyboards for much longer.

    Can also click Start/Run, type in sysinfo or sysinfo32

    Cannot find file sysinfo or (sysinfo32)

    as PETE has stated right click my computer and it will give you everything you ask apart from processor speed,this you should see if you watch the splash screens as the computer loads up.or just google for a program called processor finder or similar
