    Over at Amazon, the reviews of the printer are decidedly mixed so far, especially if one excludes those who got the machine for a review. And replacement ink down the road doesn't look cheap.

    Win 8.1 also got a roll up this week. My question is whether or not MS is stuffing Win 10 related updates into those too.

    Is this documented somewhere? I went through several pages of a search and couldn't find anything. OTOH, Windows Event Viewer results are local time, e.g., Admin Events.

    Hadn't thought of that. Looks like it - 6 hr difference. But why would msinfo32 use that time when the Windows clock is local? Registry also shows local, no UTC -...

    Odd results with msinfo32

    Win 8.1 Pro x64. Tracey Capen's discussion of msinfo32 in the current newsletter reminds me of something that left me puzzled. Some weeks ago, toward solving a software issue, a company asked me to...

    Not clear in the article, and hence my question: What are the disadvantages and operational effects or repercussions of using a local account as the main account?

    Thanks. Since a rescue disk is typically put aside for emergencies, it would seem to defeat the purpose to have to check for and burn new versions frequently. That's why I've been reluctant to use...

    Someting I've never been clear about: Do rescue disks have to be constantly updated for latest malware?

    +1. While the U.S. long ago went off the gold standard techinically, gold remains the backbone of world currencies. I don't see what's behind the bitcoin except some notion of good will, i.e., not...

    Susan,
    You show a compatibility upgrade update for Win 7. As someone who signed up for the CEIP but never got involved, I still received one for Win 8.1 this week, which I hid. Looking at my hidden...

    Yes, it's too bad AV-Comparatives didn't run their survey in a way that brought in a wider swath of users. Even so, the pie chart shows but you don't mention the "Confident Users" category, which...

    I always have to shake my head at people, especially expert IT writers, who think a large tablet can be a laptop (or PC) replacement. Ergonomically, it's dangerous on the face of it: extending beyond...

    This thread is not very encouraging. If ransomeware is present, then it sounds like even a backup drive connected for a short while is apt to get hit.

    While the manual copy method works, with multiple drives to back up wouldn't it be simpler in the long run to create a partition for each HDD to be backed up on the external drive?

    By limiting, do you mean bandwidth control? I did disable that and reenable NAT Boost, after which downloads/uploads returned to their previous speed, the one at which I started this thread.

    The instability and slowness continues - 150-300 kb/s, although at these speeds downloads aren't tieing up the computer. Somehow I need to find a middle ground in speed. Don't know if it has any...

    Well, a reset fixed the connection problem (amazing how little TP-Link support knows), thanks. However, the changes have left the computer very jumpy as it loads sites and downloads have slowed from...

    ipconfig returns the same address. As URL, it still returns cannot connect to remote server.

    No difference. Maybe I need to reset the whole thing.

    Paul, the router link, http://tplinklogin.net/, hasn't been able to connect to the server since Friday night. Thought it was just a site down, but now wondering if could it be something else. The...

    Before I add the bandwidth range and the max bandwidth (8000 kbps?), what do you suggest for the other boxes on that screen?
