    If your home page and default search engine were changed, then yes - you definitely downloaded and installed something that you don’t want. Was the Yahoo toolbar added to any of your browsers? Take a...
  2. Windows That Move Off-Screen... Why? And How to Prevent?

    I have one program - Evernote - that occasionally changes to a very tiny window and moves off-screen. I have no idea how or why this occurs but it is a bit frustrating. Not very, but a bit. ;)

    Clive - it's in my Google Contacts, which is the closest thing they have to a whitelist. Doesn’t seem to matter.

    Thank you.

    Odd that the link to the column that gives the details - given in the initial post - leads to the "Paid content only" section. Thus anyone who isn't a paid subscriber wouldn’t be privy to the...

    Same thing here, Bob! As a matter of fact I found this thread because I searched for "Sketchup newsletter in Gmail spam" on Google. The email appears perfect except some of the links that used to be...

    I use Gmail but not for anything sensitive that requires privacy. I have used Outlook for years but very much on and off. Outlook over the years never handled IMAP mail accounts very well at all....

    Thanks to all. I cannot find an answer to this anywhere, though I do find many with the same issue.

    Correct. My status bar shows the following:

    Don’t know why I'm not seeing any counts.

    Thank you.

    You cannot get a virus just by reading an email. Opening an email in the reading pane of any fairly modern email client alone cannot infect your computer. If you claim to know of such a case then...
  10. Outlook 2010 - Unread AND Total Message Count in Folder?

    Is there any way at all to have Outlook 2010 show the unread and total message counts for a folder? Any folder? I have been able to show that in every other email client I have used - and it is...

    I have had Nuance PDF Converter Pro installed, versions 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7. Whew! To be honest I hated all versions up through 3. When they worked right they were awesome! But when they didn't they...

    I agree with ruirib that Cute PDF is an excellent way to print documents as PDF. Another is PDF-XChange, which is a fantastic free PDF reader though the PDF writer aspect is ad-supported and has a...

    I didn't look into Nitro (I have Nuance PDF Converter Pro 7 installed) or Green Print. But System Mechanic? Looks outdated and pretty useless to me. The problems you mentioned aren't usually problems...

    First, if the download file starts with "cnet_" then you are getting the latest bloatware from them: a proprietary installer from Download.com. See this article for more info: ...

    KB2552343 is still showing twice in this latest Patch Watch Chart: once listed as "Wait" and then again as "Install". Tends to be even more confusing when you consider that KB2552531 is re-offered...

    I already posted this in the latest Patch Watch thread but thought I should answer this post also: KB2552343 was showing - and still is in the latest chart - twice: once as "Wait" and then again as...

    Thanks Gary. However I haven't seen any table from 7/19. The table I used was the last one posted in the Windows Secrets Newsletter, which was dated 7/12. Notice I first posted about this at 1:30 am...

    That is recommended by Microsoft Gary, but then again Susan has KB2552343 rated as "Wait" in her patch watch table. I'm going to hold off on it until that is cleared.

    Thanks BJ - I hadn't noticed that; I mainly use Revo Uninstaller rather than the one provided in Windows. Plus I guess I am remembering back when Microsoft did not list the individual KB #'s in the...

    Similar issue here except this patch, KB2532531, was successfully installed on my Windows 7 computer last week and it showed up again this week. MS says that this might happen in relation to another...

    Sounds about right. Hopefully I'll hear from someone. I'm not certain if I was supposed to create a login before getting the official email invitation.

    Thanks!

    I am a paid subscriber though I haven't received my invitation yet - just the email announcing that it's coming. I happened to know, however, where the lounge was and so I came to check...
