  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Computer security

    I offered on an earlier thread to write a brief discussion of computer security. Here it is. I've made it simple to follow. I can't see how anyone could read this and end up not understanding what it says. Some computers have their hard drive encrypted (which means scrambled with a password). If...

  1. typing backwards

    ok, this may be a slightly odd complaint, but my computer for some unknown reason has decided to start typing backwards... as in: 'hello' will turn out 'olleh' why??! I'm guessing it will sort itself out if I restart, but why are computers so odd? I didn't do anything to suggest I wanted it...

  2. Putting a computer back to the factory default

    from Nomad's question elsewhere...People seem not to be comfortable with the concept of "factory default". I'm not having a go, nomie, I'm being helpful here. RESET. A new computer arrives with a manual or guide of some sort. Possibly with a rescue partition, possibly with a CD/DVD reinstall...

  3. Getting copies of text messages?

    Hi All I've posted quite a long thread in Relationships "How do you get over an affair". Basically, my husband has had an affair but started up another 'friendship' with another girl last July whom he texted and rang rather a lot! Suspicious does not cover it! I am posting here to see if...

  4. How can I delete photos from desktop list?

    I'd like to delete most of the photos in the list of photos available to use for my desktop background. Hitting delete doesn't work. Right clicking doesn't work. I want to delete both the photos that came with my computer and the many that it auto-added on its own (the nerve!) from my My Photos...

  6. Google+, Youtube, Gmail, GoogleDrive, GoogleCalendar

    Gmail opened its first invite-only access to beta-test Gmail in April 2004. I registered in August and since then it provided my primary public email service. The other bits got added automatically as options as time went on. I deleted my Google account at the weekend on privacy grounds and...

  7. What Linux looks like this month

    Well, on this laptop anyhow. I thought I'd put a screen capture into a thread. I have it in mind that there's a lot of timidity about giving Linux a try and that a thread talking through the pros and cons might stiffen the occasional sinew. Laptop Screen shared on ZimageZ by spot...

    It's a puzzle, going back to the published figures and demonstrating the probability that the voting last month was rigged by outsiders.

  14. Blocking junk mail

    There is a facility within my e-mail (Outlook ) which gives me the option of blocking junk mail rather than just deleting them. However I can't always do this because some e-mail addresses are "invalid". How can this be ? They are convoluted but if they are invalid, how can they function as an...

    My headphones have suddenly stopped working when plugged into the laptop.

  17. Microsoft Bob returns as Metro

    I'm delighted to see the resurrection of the finest desktop manager Microsoft ever designed as the new front end for Windows 8, Metro. Whatever will these clever chaps in Redmond think of next. I must rush out and upgrade at the first opportunity. Metro's blockier than Bob but that's presumably...

    I am using an inherited computor, over the past couple of weeks it would just do funny things. It started by normal text becoming gobbledegook, symbols and such like, and the PC needing to be switched off and on to reboot.
