    Update will not install

    I think the problem might actually be one of the defender updates, of which there have been 18 in the last 14 days - one unsuccessful. Recently I started to get trouble - Thunderbird email kept stalling, websites were blocked, programs got error messages and right-clicking was very slow: I...

    Cannot copy/paste

    Cannot copy/paste

Apparently the text gets as far as the clipboard as I get a message asking if I want to...
