Having, successfully so far, resisted/repelled several devious attacks
from the Russians, I am keen to maintain a clean, and thus secure,
system as possible.

I'd throw it away unused. Do not want the associated risks.

Comfort-ability is not my criteria. The BIOS is supposed to be 4 or 5

other historic relics (LH120, I think one of the other choices was).

Have a nice day.

Thank you.
