    Microsoft support sucks

    I would not call Microsoft. I think there must be a worldwide network of support whereas your call could be routed to India or any of the Asian countries. This has already happen to me. I do not want foreigners to answer my support questions. I find their accents hard to understand. Some cannot...

    My computer's Windows UI freezes

    This might help. See my post "Does Your Windows Freeze Up" If that does not fix it, then someone else will have to step in.

I use Yahoo as my search engine. While I was doing this, I had to put up with the Yahoo toolbar hi-jacking my searches. I...

    Solved Usb 16 gb

    Having two flash drives is a good Idea and I will get another one. My backup using flash drive only took 45 seconds with windows 10. Strange that with windows 7 & 8, it took much longer using cd's. Then again, I may have been backing up other files I was not aware of; even though I checked off...

    What Equipment Do I Need?

    There is a early termination fee that Comcast charges. My service indicates that I am under a 12 month agreement. So it looks like I will need to wait until June 2016 to cancel part of my service.

    What Equipment Do I Need?

    Hello. I am at odd's with my cable provider and I do not think they can solve my problem but I believe that I can. Long story short: I no longer am willing to pay a premium if the networks force commercials on me and as many as 6 in a row. I find that there are TV channels on line. So I...
