    How do I turn Windows Defender on?

    I guess you meant to say if "Avira" is working for me. Looks like I'll just have to live with the occasional annoying Mcafee reminders to get me to subscribe. Is it unusual for the Avira scan to have taken almost 5 hours? And it did not find any problems.

    How to put shortcut icon on taskbar

    I want to put shortcut to websites, such as yahoo, or google, etc on the taskbar so the icon is not hidden behind main screen (like my dsktp shrtct is). When I look how to do it under google, it gives msoft site which says "Add Icons to the Desktop or Taskbar". Under that it has "To Pin APPS...

    Laptop now very slow, acting very erratically

    popeye, Im not good at this stuff, but I did manage to find Task Manager, and I looked under 'Processes' and under CPU. Shows Internet Explorer going between 7 and 12 percent. All but a couple of other small things are at '0' percent. And what is that "Recommended Fix" thing I've seen? Is...

    Laptop now very slow, acting very erratically

    Kind of suddenly, it slowed way down and started operating very poorly. Every single time I click on something, it takes a long time to change, sometimes up to a minute. Screen jumps around and changes by itself. Scrolls erratically. I type, and sometimes wait for the letters to appear...

    How much room needed on cd for burning favorites/bookmarks

    I burned about 400kb's worth of favorites onto new blank cd. But when I then check to see just how much of the cd was used up, it says 29mb's. How can that be if the 400kb's of favorites is less than one-half of one mb? I wrongly put this question in the browsers and mail forum. Had one...

    How much room should 151 favorites/bookmarks use on CD?

    I burned them onto blank cd. When I then look, it says 29mb's were used up on the cd. How can that be? If one mb equals a thousand kb's, it should show I used up less than one mb. I tried to look up how many kb's the favorites folder was, but the size was blank. But when I had 130...

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    XweAponX - 'Look, ya just' don't show the same as how my screen comes up. But, Im guessing that could be because I have windows 8, and you have windows 8 pro and pro with media center. Probably quite similar. If you are indicating to right click on the favorites folder...choose 'send...

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    caperjack - says that 5.63mb was used up. But how can that be right? Did a quick estimate on my favorites, figure about 350kb. If one mb is 1,000kb, then 350kb equals only app. 1/3 of one mb. Also, when I right click, there is not an "open" nor an "explore" edited half hour later -...

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    Windunce - I don't get the same window as you show @ w-key+e. Looks like yours is media player? Caperjack - Not sure exactly what I did, but I poked around some more and got the Burn a Disc window, chose Live File System, then I think progress bar came up, did it's thing, then disasppeared...

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    For mail Im using @yahoo.com. And from some places I've read, it says I have to use Windows Media Player to copy/burn things onto cd, but Med Plyr is not mentioned in any of these posts. Figured I'd mess around a bit, all I could do is wreck one or two cd's. So I put it in. Was able to...

    oh, I forgot...hi guys, just came on board. Been away from computers for year and a half. Had been using a desktop with XP, wish I still had the XP, not crazy about this W8 at all.

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    Im already confused by the limited (for me) info in the first 2 posts. DavidY - yes, I mean the IE Favorites/Bookmarks, etc. Thinking maybe I could also copy my email section because I have a bunch of different folders there. Can't think of much else, but probably will end up forgetting...

    just cannot figure out how to burn/copy Favorites onto CD

    I have spent hours reading dozens of articles. Im just a real basic comp user, this is probably pretty easy thing to do. I always get stuck on a couple of steps...things on my screen are not the way it says, or I don't get what is meant, or it sounds like it is assuming the reader knows how to...
