    Windows Update Error 80070057

    Driver update tools don't distinguish between a genuine update and merely a 'version' update that supports later hardware that you don't have. There are different sections for different hardware all in the one driver in many cases. The section for your older hardware never actually changes. After say a year drivers are not updated, they should function correctly. Why download something you don't need, it's just using space on your hard drive !! I have never used one just get them from the manufacture or through Windows ! ! My Laptop & Desk model manufacturers updates now come via Windows updates !! Chuck

    My Chromium not working properly

    Chrome or Chromium browser is an easy browser to hack, in my opinion the best is Firefox Quantum >>> https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2017/11/14/introducing-firefox-quantum/ followed by the Edge which is Microsoft browser !! https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2017/11/14/introducing-firefox-quantum/ Chuck

    Windows 10

    Windows 10 info: If you're running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1 S14 (that's the “Windows 8.1 Update†from last April), you'll be able to get Windows 10 straight from the Control Panel's Windows Update utility. In other words, you won't have to mess around with installation disks, and all your files and programs will remain intact. Your data won't be erased if you're running an older version of Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, but you'll have to download an ISO and create an installation disk. It's just a little more of a hassle. In either case, upgrading to Windows 10 will be free, as long as you make the jump in the first year after launch. Windows Vista and Windows XP users with compatible hardware can buy an upgrade to Windows 10, but this will require a clean install that erases all programs and files. The company also announced that users of pirated Windows versions will be able to get a legit copy of Windows 10 at no charge .

    Happy Birthday

    Happy B Day to Jeff Weisbein (Besttechie) our owner & President who keeps this place going under difficult times !! Thank him for having a site where you can post almost anything !! Thanks Jeff Chuck
  13. Yes Windows 10 can still be upgraded for free !! The older systems will be closing down soon, meaning they will still run but some programs will not be supported by MS or their customers company's, so you may have to find other drivers & such !! Chuck

  16. Welcome to the forum Jove ! IMO with the new W10 systems which comes with Windows Defender is a great virus protection but with that said Antivirus protection is only as good as how careful you can be !! There are free ones like Avast & Avg so the protection is what ever you chose best for your protection !! Chuck

  20. Sorry Percolate but Chrome is the easiest of all browsers to hack, proven fact ! The E that is on W10 is not Internet Explorer it is Edge ! MS has stepped up their game to make it a very reliable browser ! But i still prefer FF new browser "Quantum" !! Performance and Speed. Mozilla claims that Firefox Quantum is twice as fast as its predecessors and loads web pages faster and uses 30% less memory than Chrome. ... Quantum is definitely faster than previous versions of Firefox, but even in Mozilla's tests, it only beats Chrome by fractions about half the time. When any amount of time counts !! Chuck
  21. ATTN: Microsoft Internet Explorer users !! Internet Explorer Security Flaw Lets Hackers Steal Files From Windows PCs on any Windows system ! An unpatched exploit in the Internet Explorer browser's handling of MHT files (IE's Web archive format) can be used by hackers to both spy on Windows users and steal their local data. As of now there is noway to stop the hackers future up-date will be to patch this flaw will be introduced !! This is why i keep telling you to use other browsers ! You can check to see if you have IE or Edge !! To determine what version of Microsoft Edge (the replacement for Internet Explorer released with Windows 10) is being used, Open the "E" ...... click the three dots located at the top, right side of the screen. Next, scroll down and click Settings. Scroll again to the bottom of the menu and see 'About this app'. it will tell you there what you are using !! Chuck
