    Openoffice

    Hi and welcome to TSG, You might have a 'hung' openoffice process. Press the keys Shift + CTRL + Esc simultaneously to bring up the Task Manager. On the Processes tab, look for processes that begin with soffice. End those processes and then restart OpenOffice.

    Safety of Recovery Data Software

    Hi, The data recovery software only activates when you click 'search' or 'recover' and direct it to whichever device you're working on. These programs don't work like key-loggers recording every character you type. Some may come with their own uninstaller, or use the Windows 'add/remove program'...

    Ubuntu 14.04.5 Not booting from CD

    Hi, Support for Ubuntu 14.04 ended last year so you might be better off trying a new DVD/USB install of a supported version anyway. Support version dates at this link: https://www.ubuntu.com/info/release-end-of-life I think most Ubuntu releases now are too large to fit on CDs but will fit on DVDs.

    Solved: System Restore

    Hi Boothbay, You have asked in the Linux and Unix forum. Linux systems don't have a "system restore" in the same manner as Windows. In Linux you can use such progs as 'TimeShift' etc. but they're not generally installed by default. Are you running Linux? If so what back up prog did you install?
