    Cannot copy/paste

    Thank you both. I don't have adobe reader installed, so it was not that. I have copied the list of possible fixes in case it happens again.

    Cannot copy/paste

    I always go ctrl A then ctrl C but It did not work. I have just re-booted the computer and it works perfectly again. I have no idea what was the cause of the problem. Hope it does not happen again.

    Cannot copy/paste

    I can no longer copy/paste from one document to another existing or new file (both Word and Notepad) - paste does not appear on the right click menu, nor does Ctrl V work; I can however copy/paste a picture. Apparently the text gets as far as the clipboard as I get a message asking if I want to...

    Backup History

    I have tried all of the solutions, including going via Control Panel rather than settings, but none work . I have at least managed to add the folders to back up - but still still an empty folder, in spite of the message that a backup is taking place. It seems to be a common un-solved problem. I...

    Backup History

    Thanks. Saving to the cloud is no good as my upload speed is only 0.65 Mbps. I still cannot get File History to work. I click add a folder under backup these folders and select desktop and documents to add - they should then appear under the heading but it remains empty of folders - not as...

    Unable to create a recovery flash drive

    Thanks - the three 8 GB flash drives were new Sandisk ones, but I also tried a 16 GB Kingston drive and that failed as well, but it is quite old and well used - I will try to borrow some other drives and hopefully find one that works.

    Unable to create a recovery flash drive

    I have been attempting to create a recovery flash drive but each time I try it fails with the message unable to complete – I have tried three 8 GB drives and one 16 GB, I have tried both the front and rear usb sockets on the desktop. Maybe it is significant – I have had more BSODs since I...

    System file checker

    Thanks. I checked for Defender and found it was turned off, but no apparent way of turning it on. I will turn off the AVG and anti-exploit but would like to have defender active.
