    Google Groups is a good choice. It should be noted that it depends on how its configured. I'm a member of a group that is distributed only by the Admin. Yahoo Groups I used to recommend as it was...

    Backspacer - Android is a flavour of Linux. The reason Linux has the largest base is because of Android devices.
    When Android took off, Microsoft lost half it's market share of devices in a couple...

    Like Dave, I'd mention LastPass also- I use it on the desktop so adding it to Android is a no-brainer. You really don't want 2 password systems.

    I also use ESET AV on the desktop and see they...

    Thanks for all your research, Susan

    I've noticed something new recently. On a Win7 64 box, the last 2 times I've had an update for Win Defender, it's failed. (today and 2 days ago) When I try to...

    There are circumstances where you still need Image, Image Resize. But that's a great overview of PhotoShop's Save for Web. I generally just use 2 up and tweak the image for faster productivity.

    When I purchase hardware and such a take a moment to mark the date, purchase location, model# and serial numbers. Makes it much easier to find receipts, etc. I used to do this on the paperwork that...

    I use the full version of Acrobat for edting PDF's. But for reading, I found Acrobat Reader became a pig - slow loading and bloated.

    Like several here, I quite like Foxit. I've tried a few others...

    You don't mention clearly but it really sounds like you need an automated backup on an external drive. Such drives are cheap now. Even NAS is becoming very reasonable.

    When my Palm died, I decided to go more open source rather than keep my important personal data in proprietary formats that would also have end dates.

    Like Leila, I use Thunderbird and Lightning...

    Lots of great tips here but some miss the point. Saving the entire web page will also save the script that blocks copy-pasting of sections. They just want a snippet. Evernote doesn't work if you...

    On the POS Update trick, it's worth noting that not only is MS not testing POS updates on a standard build but the security needs for a POS system are quite different. POS systems are usually either...

    Interesting thread. I trained on PhotoShop back in ver 3 and have kept using it as it's quite familiar. A little depressing to see CS2 free now. (laughs) Worth learning in my books.

    I'd agree with BobDog. I would consider it a bad idea, even in a business setting, to encrypt the entire drive. As Fred notes, many of the system files are pointless to encrypt and you introduce a...

    The update showed up out of cycle and checked. I waited to see what WinSecrets would have to say. Then it showed up unchecked. And then checked again.

    Swatbat
    Further to Bruce, I would ask why you're running IE8 on Win7. That's years out of date. Patch it yes, but update it too. Especially if you're using it. Old software is the last thing you...

    Susan
    Oops - you're right. WD, not HP. An erroneous association from a local supplier.

    Any news on problems with the IE update? OK to go?

    Susan -
    I hope you're planning to cover the broader Heartbleed issue - in hardware. HP My Cloud and a number of hardware firewalls and routers use the broken version of OpenSSL. They'll need to be...

    Ernie- if you delete a system DLL, it will get restored the next time you do a repair or other Windows maintenance routine.
    Not a good practice to delete Windows components anyway.

    Finally, the option to get a free 8.1 disc is nice but the "just need an email account" actually means "must have a Microsoft account". It won't let you use a non-Microsoft email address.

    Good point about Macrum or similar tools. But I would also note that a Backup recovery "rescue" disk is not the same thing a system rescue disk. Its still a really good idea to have a rescue disc for...
