Re: Text crowding

Try opening the problem site with a different browser. I've experienced similar "crowding" from time to time and it was usually the way the browser renders the page. Try IE, Firefox or Chrome. Some pages are "optimized" for [more]

Re: Ethernet Router Question

I'm curious as to why your Roku is using an Ethernet port. It can connect wirelessly.

Re: MS Word Feature?

But just for reference, one advantage 3rd party clipboard managers do is avoid the problems you mention here. They can store multiple clips and access them separately. Depending on the features of the clipboard manager, they can also save clips to [more]

Re: MS Word Feature?

Go back and look over Peter's idea again.

Another method would be to insert a comment, but then be able to maybe right-click inside that comment and select the canned feedback phrase.

Re: Win Cleaner One Click

Go to another computer and download the tools mentioned above to a flash drive. Then you can go to your computer and run them from the flash drive. I know for certain you can run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from the flash drive. After MBAM does it's [more]

Question Regarding OTA Updates

I purchased from Amazon an unlocked Motorola Moto G 4G LTE Universal phone back in September and am using it over the Consumer Cellular (AT&T) network. This is not the 2nd generation Moto G but it's also not the original non-4G version that [more]

Re: Block excutables until IT approved

My bank is better: They ask my name and look it up in their files. If they had another customer with the same name, they would ask for my address.

Re: Speaker quality

If I turn the volume up loud enough to hear, it buzzes and distorts horribly

Is it possible that your hearing is the problem? I work with a lady who owns an S5. She turns it up so loud I can hear everything that is said over the phone [more]

Re: Block excutables until IT approved

No, I don't think so. You must provide information such as an ID when requested. You do not have the option to say no.

Re: Memorex Traveldrive lockdown

Yes JD, as you mentioned running the OS from a CD or flash drive is an excellent way of determining if a problem is hardware or software related. And the Ubuntu version never seems to have a problem finding all the hardware, especially the [more]

Re: Memorex Traveldrive lockdown

Have a friend who runs Linux? Have them format and partition the drive using gParted. You can also download a version of Linux (Ubuntu for example), burn it to a CD, reboot your computer from said CD and use gParted to format and partition the [more]

Re: Incremental vs Differential

The complexities of incremental and differential backups aren't worth it to me. I just stick with full backups.

Same here.

I was leaning toward the Buffalo Linkstation. The re-purposed desktop sounds interesting though maybe more work than I want to go through right now.

Re: Printer problem
