    Have I been scammed?

    Yes, I'm feeling, that I won't click on or replay to anything. I've been getting messages from all sorts of people who I know aren't really who they say. I think part of it is age. They see that you are 84 and they think this guy won't know what's going on. I got another message from Comcast...

    Have I been scammed?

    Hi I'm back, I really am mad at myself. I'm always telling people that they should never click on links in emails, and I did it once and got scammed. A short time after I posted here, I tried to contact Comcast and I couldn't get into my account, a short time later and my whole internet went...

    Have I been scammed?

    Hi everyone. I received an email from Comcast today, it says that my service will be suspended unless I update my payment information. It said that the credit card company failed to authorize the payment. This message really looks official, when I clicked on My Account in the message, I...

    FreeCell Brag....

    I haven't played Freecell for quite a while, I've reached the age of 84 now, and my computer-playing buddy died earlier this year. More recently, I've been playing Spades, I kind of like that because you have to make a bid, and then try and hit exactly that number. This means that you spend...

    Windows 10 "documents" folder missing

    OK, I guess I get it, when I did that it opened the My Documents folder that I expected. So the one I created didn't have some special instructions attached, but they don't show anyplace. My One Drive folder is empty. I did find this, maybe it's what the original poster needed...

    Windows 10 "documents" folder missing

    I guess I just don't get what you are talking about… I created a new Documents folder, I called this one Documents Two, and now I have two Documents folders, both are in the same location, I can't find any difference between them, as far as utility goes, and they are both accessible from the...

    Another Scam, watch out for this one!

    I never use any of those big-name massive anti-malware programs anymore. I've used Malwarebytes for decades and never had a problem. In fact, it blocked me from opening two websites just today when I was trying to find a place to download Defraggler. I finally upgraded to the Pro edition after...

    What happened, my computer did something unexpected?

    No, it's an almost new computer, my new Falcon NW Talon. I9 processor, GeForce 3080 video, and 64 Gigs of ram. It's very fast, but I'm always suspicious when something new happens. The great thing is that I can make or restore a system image in less than 10 minutes. So, I'm about to make a new...

    What happened, my computer did something unexpected?

    Hi Nemo Yes, exactly like that, but the message underneath said something about checking the memory. Then it booted to the desktop only a few seconds later. Everything has been running fine since, but I wondered what was going on. Mike

    What happened, my computer did something unexpected?

    Hi I booted my computer yesterday and I got a drive selection menu. This has never happened before. The only selection was Windows 11. I selected it and got a message that said running memory check, and then in about 3 seconds it booted to Windows 11, and that was it. However, it took less...

    Windows 11 Discussion

    You should try using Apache Open Office, it does everything that Office does, and it's free. I've used it for years instead of Microsoft Office. It works almost the same, and it will open all the files you are used to using. Plus, it gets updated, so it's more recent than Office 2003...

    Windows 11 Discussion

    Everything on my new computer runs fine, when I first switched my old computer to Windows 11 I had to make changes in the Bios, but this one runs fine, and all my software worked with no changes.

    Browser crashes in When I open a particular page

    I opened the page on my computer and dragged over the text, then selected Copy, I then pasted it into a text document. I could have saved the document on my desktop, and had it available anytime. This is the first section, you could do this with the whole thing if you need to, one chapter at a...

    Browser crashes in When I open a particular page

    All I can tell you is that it opens fine for me, you might try updating your firewall, etc. but I don't really see why it would close with the "Ah Snap" message, I get that once in a while but the next day it usually opens. If no one has a good solution, you could try this. This is kind of...
