  1. I have been using CryptoPrevent with great sucess (Yes I foolishly open an email from a friend I am ashamed) https://www.foolishit.com/cryptoprevent-malware-prevention/
  2. I am far from sold on the "Edge" browser I cannot even run the Microsoft Online Labs you would thing it would work. I admit I have not had time to mess with it. I will try this weekend. Overall I have very few complains about Win10. I have a copy of the educational version I may build a new machine for it since the pro-version I have now does not support remote access. Preston
  3. Thanks Chuck. It would be nice to see this place popping again. I hope to contribute as much as I can to the sucess of this place. I am looking to get my cisco (ccent) cert. in april so I will be doing some heavy study for the next couple of weeks but I will stop in. I hope to get my Network securty cert this summer this years has been a struggle. Preston
  4. I have been evauating Win 10 and I Feel that they tried too hard to meld 7 with 8.1. I love the feel of 7since it is pretty much what we all expect so I never upgraded to 8.1 even though I have a copy given to me by my college. Maybe I am just old but I want to be productive when I am on my PC not trying to figure out the reinvented wheel. Ignore me I am just trying to get back in the habit of posting again. Glad they maintained my log on info. Preston
  5. I used to read your answers on the G$ Forum some time ago. Didn't understand most of them, but enjoyed reading them. Is the G4 forum gone, I can't find it any more. G4 no longer exist that is originally why we all came here. funny that anyone remembers G4. Pete has always been a wealth of info. I hope to start frequenting this place again. Wow I just noticed that the question had already been aswered.
  6. The COA is attached to the stolen Laptop but I always keep files on such so I have the Key. I should just purchase an OEM that will solve the issue. Thanks Preston
  7. I purchased a used Business grade Notebook very cheap from a company in Georgia. Original price of this puppy was $3300 MSRP so $185 was not to bad to pay. It came in a timely many (2 days Wow!) it came with a authentic Windows 7 MAR disk. Well this was a gift to my Sister for school since it had bioscan and such I felt it would serve well and it did until it got stolen. I built her another one and now I have a integity issue going on. Should I take the Win 7 MAR and install it on the new one and will it work can I update. I would prefer it make the other one invalid. what happens if we recover the stolen one? I don't want to be considered a pirate and Mirosoft isno help. Chime in your comments. Preston
  8. Does it have the same issues with timeouts that chrome does? Most notably , with facebook games frequently give a "shockwave plugin not responding" in response to server timeouts and unlike IE and Firefox there is no easy way to increase server timeouts to prevent this. Pete I have not noticed any timeouts in fact I have laid aside my beloved Opera for the past month and do not feel a loss. I admit I do not have patience with Facebook games so I have not explored that. it seems to do exactly whay I like for it to do. I was hopping that I would get oppinion from those who have tried it. What are your views on this?
  9. Has anyone else tried Comodo Dragon web browser? I know it is nothing more than a repackaged chrome but it has been far more stable for me. In fact not a single hitch. I cannot speak about security but I have trusted comodo firewall for years I have no reason to believe this version of chrome is not as secure as they can add to it. Comodo Dragon Preston
  10. Thanks She has six kids and a husband that knows everything about security.and he has a lot of time on his hands. The kids are too old for this 2 are in college the other middle school and up she has just spawned a flock of human computer viruses. The MOBO is bad I finally got the slot to hold the card. A new notebook was my first suggestion but she wanted to see. I Miss this place Preston
  11. Hey friends long time no post I know I hope all is well. I have an issue on a Laptop I am looking into for a young lady at work.. HP G62 Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit 4 GB DDR3 (2 x 2048 MB) AMD Athlon™ II Dual-Core Processor P340 2.2 GHz, Level 2 cache 1 MB AMD RS880M chipset 500 GB SATA Hard Disk Drive 5400 rpm Symptoms: Will not boot. HP logo for 3sec shuts off. I started checking RAM and immediately the secondary slot drops the card in my hand. So I assume this is the biggest issue the slot will not hold the RAM in the slot. I shuffled it will not the other either. both maybe bad slots because it will not boot with just the primary either card. I am going to re-seat the processor and video cables but my real question is has anyone ever replaced the memory slots or should the MOBO just be replaced? I am trying to keep her cost down but I am about to tell her to buy a new. This family has gone through 5 PCs in 1.5 years. they need to invest in a Panasonic Toughbook TIA For you advice Preston
  12. This really sounds like a damaged drive perhaps some bad sectors. Hard discs fail in some strange ways. If you can get a copy of Spinrite 6 http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm try running it trough it's paces (may not be worth the price so if you can find a friend to let you borrow a copy it would be better). I maybe entirely off base with this but it would be something I would check.
  13. On your Windows 7 computer, click the Start button at the bottom left of the screen, then go to the Control Panel and choose Network and Sharing Center. Click the link under "view your active networks" (if you've set up a Homegroup,the link should say "home network"). In the next window choose "Work network" that will switch you from a homegroup to a workgroup so your two computers can talk to each other. Before you can network the computers, you must assign the same workgroup name to both of them and SHARE folders in Explorer.
  14. The cleaning guy at my office gave me a Laptop to fix the WiFi connection in and I determined that they had installed XP on the sony VAIO that originally came with Vista. I confirmed this with him he stated someone told him vista was mo good so he had a local kid Put a copy of XP professional on it. Well the kid did not know enough to track down the drivers before doing this (he had no excuse Sony makes it easier) I fixed everything (keybaord utilites and all) but I told him he would need to activate XP soon it would shut down in 28days. There is is the problen it is not a legit copy (the kid did not tell him that) now he does not want to loose everything he has installed on it (a bunch of Diagnostic programs for Cell phones that he uses in his primary job) He has the Vista Disc that came with the Laptop and wants to know if he could use it to upgrade back to vista and not lose his apps. I said I did not know I know that you can clean install with it. and you can Trick a retail disk into thinking it is OEM. I have done it on a reinstall using My Xp disk anf the customers product code on the computer but this one does not seems to fall in between possible and impossible. Give me some feed back or should I tell hime to cut his loses and do a clean install? Been awhile since I have been here I how all my old friends are doing well Preston
  15. for the future I have found lots of help at Driverheaven.net
