    Malwarebytes messed up internet connection

    Hey guys, So I was doing a scan with malwarebytes and it found one adware. I quarantined it. After that, my internet connection was very, very slow. I tried everything I could think of til I decided to just do a system restore. That worked! Now I'm afraid to use malwarebytes again or...

    Strange devices on router

    Hey, So I have a couple of devices showing up on my router that are unfamiliar. One of them appears to look like it's from amazon and the other one is from audiocast. My wifi is protected by password (a really good and long one, I think). Could it be because I use amazon? I don't even use...

    Disk cleanup took MORE space?!

    I was using disk clean up a little while ago and though it's not much difference, it took up more space, not freeing up space? I've added and deleted documents lately so maybe that's what messed up the true number of storage space and the number of space showing after disk cleanup is actually...

    BSOD twice in two days

    I'm sure it's my display driver again. I had Crimson ReLive Edition 16.12.2 installed (I used clean install from AMD to get rid of it and either reinstall it or install something else). It's from 2017 so why hasn't it been updated? Then I read that AMD no longer support 8400 series anymore so...

    I'm sure I just need to update my display drivers again. I've had problems in the past and want to start with a clean slate. However, I don't want to be too aggressive and I know using DDU is aggressive as it wipes out more than a display driver. I came across a post at the amd website that...
