    Thank you for your reply. When I said I can't afford a new computer, I meant exactly that: I'm retired on fixed income and simply don't have that kind of money lying around, not with 3 things dying...

    I'm amazed you could pull that much info from the data I sent you. I will still try "my" computer shop first. Even if I bought one of the amazon.com ones, I'd still have to find a reputable,...

    Doubly bad news, but thank you

    The hard drive is not replaceable because no one makes one that fits the space. The shop has searched for me because I wanted something substantially bigger. I will contact the shop and see if they...

    Thank you for help but ??

    I downloaded and ran the program, but I'm not sure how to post the results back, so I can only hope it happens correctly. That's one of the things I haven't had to do before.

    I have had update problems, and there's no way I'm going to allow MS to make me install things like Silverlight or Skype when I don't want them. It was bad enough when they gave us the update that...

    Thank you. I will keep looking into Linux as a possible replacement. If there's something like Wine (for Mac computers to use Windows software) available for it, then I can keep my favorite Windows...

    Windows 10--no choice about updates?

    My local independent computer store is firmly against Windows 10 because they say that all updates will be forced on you, whether you want or need them, including the optional ones. Tell me it isn't...

    I check "Disable everywhere and it makes no difference: still getting the subscribe ad on every forum page. Any other suggestions?

    Thank you for your quick reply. I already have "Adblock Plus" installed. I don't know about any "additonal helpers". All the options are checked except 'Disable everywhere'. I will try checking that...
  12. Why do I get a subscription ads after clicking to read forum posts from paid Windows Secrets?

    I have a life-time subscription to Windows Secrets newsletter. I open the newsletter in my email client and then click the link to read the newsletter in Firefox. I read a lot of the forum posts...

    Sorry; this doesn't change anything. There was already a check beside the AiOS toolbar.

    But it was a good idea. I'd completely forgotten to check that.
  14. Customised Firefox doesn't show the sidebar with direct links: no sidebar or completely open

    My Firefox is up to date, but it's been updated so many times I can't count. At some point I accidentally turned off the thin column/sidebar that shows icons for bookmarks, history, downloads, add...

    I'm a long time fan of COMODO Programs Manager. It doesn't add anything extra, as far as I can tell, and when it finishes with a program's built in uninstaller, it shows you every single registry...

    I dumped Adobe Reader years ago (Win 95 maybe?) because it's bloatware. I currently use (free) Nitro Reader 3 for everything, except it won't read epub books, so I use (free) Foxit Reader strictly...

    I didn't know satellite was slower than good DSL; thanks for letting me know. Dish certainly doesn't want you to know that! As for how far I am from a switching station, the phone company won't say....

    Actually, I'm retired and I don't go somewhere else on a daily basis. I think that leaves out that option. But thanks for suggesting that.
  20. Offsite backups without high-speed Internet possible?

    My "high speed" DSL line is 700-something KBS and has been that way since they first offered DSL and that was considered high speed. In reality it's a lot, lot slower. I've got off-site unlimited...

    Thank you. I found one site that was text only and nothing but the info so I figured it was least likely to infect my machine. I plugged in the info and poof! ad window all gone.

    Since Eudora 7.1 is long gone, can those of us who use the free version "borrow" a code so that we can get rid of the smaller window that displayed ads? My laptop has a 12" diagonal screen and that...

    I suggest backing up (i.e., copying) the Eudora 5.2 folder first to someplace like the desktop. Then install 7.1X in a new folder, copy over all the files that have a date newer than the install date...
