    Now I have a new angle on my slow download problem, one that may make sense, finally. I was copying some files onto my big storage drive in anticipation of switching - soon - to a 2-in-one...

    Yeah, I guess it was the "Events" tab. So everything I was citing was normal. O well.

    I'm just really puzzled why the download performance got so sluggish after being so quick for so long.

    That's one of those questions that occur to you after you press the 'Post' button. Yeah, I'm giving Firefox a try with the same result.

  8. Win 10 - Really slow on the downloads since I upgraded

    I upgraded from Win 7 pro to Win 10 Pro on my homebuilt PC late last year - one of the 'earlier' adopters but not the earliest. I had mixed results with Win10 - on one Dell laptop, I had to roll back...

  12. Will more RAM speed up my ACER Aspire 3680

    I'm hoping by adding maybe 4 Gb RAM I can get my friend's ACER Aspire 3680 to actually do some work. If that's possible, I plan to dump the Windows Vista Home Basic operating system and replace it...

    Java is out of date?

    All day I have been getting a reminder that my Java application is out of date, and it's coming from some site called "fugdownload." Could this be legitimate? I don't remember if I even use Java any...
  15. OK end of week report: I seem to have fixed something with the fan.

    perhaps something was slowing up the fan and it needed a blast of canned air to get it rolling again. Anyway, there is nowhere near the amount of heat collecting at the bottom of the laptop.

    I...

    Hold on!!! I may be all wrong. The fan seems to be working now. More to come...
  17. I found one issue - is this the ONE? - the fan stops.

    I cleaned out the inside of the laptop with canned air, and found no appreciable dust accumulation.

    So I figured my heat issue might have another cause. Leaving the case bottom off, I started...

  21. Installed the new updates and everything went nuts, so here's how:

    I made an installer out of a 4g thumb drive and put Win10 on my Dell Latitude. All seemed to be going well until this afternoon when I started to customize and personalize the machine. I saw I had...
