    How do I clean junk off my computer?

    I would generally concur with that statement.....BUT.... MS makes it so cumbersome for the beginner/novice to the intermediate to do such simple tasks that most users, including myself, that likes the simplicity of a 3rd party app to do the job. Just my opinion. FWIWI: I've been a long time...

    New Router, maybe.

    With the move....did Spectrum come out and setup new hardware? When we moved we canceled our account/service then re-joined Spectrum as a new customer. We also went from 100 meg to 400 meg. We got the latest hardware, a 2 piece system from them. Maybe call and ask for a equipment upgrade. If...

    Windows updates and fixes for other Microsoft products

    Looks like MS changed that. There used to be 4 options where it says/shows "About Word". This was under 1909. What version are you running.....1909 or 2004?
