  1. Howdy and welcome to BestTechie, we hope you enjoy your stay here & contribute to our boards ! Your post caught my eye first thing this morning because i believe in a great education, people should do a lot of investigating before committing to a school or work place ! The time you spend will make a difference in the long run !!

  2. Waterfox is a newer browser which is like FireFox !! Waterfox is based on Firefox ESR. ... Overall, using Waterfox is basically just like using Firefox ESR and changing a few settings…with one big difference: security updates arrive in Firefox ESR much faster than they do in Waterfox.

    Think i will stick with Quantum (FF) until Waterfox has been out longer & is tested more !!

  3. Axeni3265, welcome to the forum, we hope you enjoy your stay & contribute to the forums ! I have 6 relatives who are in the medical field and 1 who works for the Drug Enforcement

    agency in DC, they all say the Vaping is a serious health threat, so i will stick with my previous comment ! It is bad and people need to stay away from it or face the consequences !!

  4. This post above you better know what you are doing not just using someone else tributes & trials ! When messing around with the registry you better know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you know what you are doing. If you move, re-name or delete a piece of the registry or part of the system it may be gone forever even if you back it up ! My advice is to leave it alone !! But you can find these hacks by just googling ! But be extra careful if you do venture into the registry !!

    I have been working with computers back to the old DOS day !

  5. Please make sure you are placing your topic into the appropriate places. Lately i have been removing a lot of them into their proper places ! I will start deleting them instead of moving them !! Most of the post are just advertising your place ! If you have a web site & want to post it here contact Jeff here @ Besttechie he will assist you !

    Thanks

  6. Howdy shokoman, i have had a few of these that would seem like they locked up but when the user would just let it run it eventually would update, some would take a few hours ! In my opinion they are behind on updates which some are a complete system so it takes longer to run ! My advice would be to turn off your Virus protection & run the update !!

    Hope that helps, if not give me a knock & we will see what else we can do !

    Thanks

  7. Howdy Gerome47 and welcome to BestTechie, we hope your stay is enjoyable & that you can contribute to our Forums !

    Now with that said i have had a pinched nerve which bothers me from time to time, it has gotten better seems like with time ! One thing i have found is stretching the upper half of my body has helped me. Even when i go to bed i lay on my tummy and put my feet over the edge and pull the bottom half downwards ! I have to always sleep in the fetal position & when sitting to always have one leg higher than my waist by crossing one or the other ! Well good luck with managing your pain. Every doctor i have talked with (many) says if you can stand the pain it is better than surgery which most times will not help !

    Good Luck

  10. Facebook virus is a term describing malware that has been spreading via this social network by using different shapes. This is a common term that includes a variety of malicious programs designed to attack users on this social media platform. The primary goal of the malware is to generate profit to cyber criminals by stealing sensitive data, credit card details, infiltrating the system with the malicious digital currency miners or other dangerous cyber threats. However, some versions just pollute Facebook network and annoy its users.

    The latest scams noticed on this social network are redirecting to Amazonaws domains after clicking on ads offering free Disneyland tickets, RayBan glasses or sales summary of 2019. Beware that these scams are often used to collect personal information or even credit card details.

    Be careful out there !
