    Windows 10 Bugs

    I've seen a video, on YouTube, warning of a bug, that's in Windows 10, which opening certain types of files, corrupts your hard drive. Anyone heard of this. When there is an update, when I go to shut down my pc, I get an option to install update, and shutdown the pc. That option is there now...

    Android Server

    Thanks. Just wondered if anyone had done this. Don't want keep downloading apps, to find out they're too complicated, or don't do what I want, and to have to uninstall them again.

    Android Server

    I want to turn, an old Sony phone, into a media server. I've put in a micro sd (128gb), and it works. I've seen videos, on YouTube, with different ways out to do this, but still not sure. What I really want to know is, how can I get rid of 'bloat ware', that comes pre-installed on the phone, eg...

    Recommendation Required

    It's Windows 10, and I've had it about 4 yrs. The HDD is 930gb. To be honest, I do have programs that do the same things, eg. I have numerous video converters, as some seem to do things that the others don't. I'm my own worst enemy. If I see a program that looks interesting on Giveaway of the...

    Recommendation Required

    My PC is full of stuff (programs) I rarely use, and it's taking my pc ages to boot up because of it. I want to go through them, and get rid of them. I want advice on the best possible program, for removing unwanted software. At the moment, I've got DoYourDataUninstaller, installed, but I'd like...

Anyway, they are coming to do a site survey on Monday, and have asked, if alls well, could they start Tuesday. What I want to know, is really, what's involved...

    External Sata Drive

    I have an external Sata drive, which stopped working some time ago. The drive used to power up, click a couple of times, then went silent. It's been put aside for a while now, but now I'm a bit more knowledgeable, I thought I'd look at it. At first I hoped it could be the caddy that was the...

    Solved Dodgy Email

    It is an old password, but I still use it on a couple of sites, but no sites with credit card information or anything. I think I'll go through all the sites I use regularly, and change all the passwords. Better safe than sorry eh! Thanks for putting my mind at ease.

    Solved Dodgy Email

    I have various email accounts for things like competitions, etc, which I know will gather spam, so these I don't check often. Just going through them today, I noticed I received one back in October, which was rather disturbing. It was like a ransom email which quoted my email address, and a...

    Data fingerprint

    I was browsing on my Firestick yesterday, and I was on a site, when I saw something pop up, which said something about allow data fingerprint. I inadvertantly clicked something, and might have clicked allow, I'm not sure. I thought it was something to do with cookies. I've read since, it's not...

    Smartwatch Assistant

    I have recently bought a smartwatch. The app that is used with it on my phone, is very basic. It's a Diggro DI06 smartwatch. What I would like to do, if it is at all possible, is to speak into my watch, and play an mp3 file stored on my phone. I can control music on my phone from my watch, but...

    Updates & Privacy

    I've owned a pc, since the maximum storage you could get was 1gb, and in all that time, I've never really understood Windows updates. I always assumed, updates were necessary, this is why I'm confused, as I read that you can control updates, and be selective. How is the 'layman' supposed to know...
