    I don't believe she mentioned that for a yearly fee, they also don't subject you to advertising. I think that's a great option.

    Hi Thanks Andrew. Yes I could have but the person who uses this machine, my wife, does not have the patience to find where the files are located. She's been trained by MSFT for over 15 years to put...

    Well, so since no one has answered this, here's what I found. Outlook.com's Word cannot merge or work with your local files. Word 2013 was able to integrate the cloud and the desktop. Really a pain...
  4. Office Online, Win7, "Open With" command not working...

    So I got my wife a new Lenovo desktop. (she insisted on having me downgrade to Windows 7 as she hates Windows 8). I decided I'd have her use the Cloud version of Word, through Outlook.com. I get...

    We all do elkelein, but often there is little to no difference in that the user on the desktop in the corporate world is really not much different than the mom and pop. The security issue is real,...

    I managed a large SUN, Windows and Mac installation (>1000 machines) back in the 90s. The Sun machines ran 24 hours a day with a sleep mode when they weren't being used for the monitors. Our admins...

    To the OP: It's better than before. But still needs 'fixing' to remove W8 vestiges on machines without touchscreens. MSFT should have looked at what Lenovo and Apple have done, respectively. In Win7...

    Beiland: It all depends on how much time and energy you want to spend on this whole thing. In your original post, you say you already bought a Mac. I'd just learn to use that. I actually run Windows...

    I actually ran into this just yesterday. Randomly told me that a machine that was activated and working fine, suddenly was not "Genuine" Windows. I went and got the OD and re-entered the code into...

    MRCS: The OP stated, "since my PC was new" so I don't think that it was an applied update, other than the standard SP1 build. He also stated, "Thanks, they're all 2.0. I had the option for the 3.0,...

    Out of left field, I assume you have made sure you have any Dell BIOS upgrades implemented? It doesn't appear to be a BIOS problem, but I would check. Given how much time you have said you have spent...

    Good article Susan, only wish that there were better recommendations! Until we see real penalties given to companies that show blatant ignorance on implementing security deeply into their services,...

    I think that this points to the fact that if you are going to do extensive work on MSFT applications, that getting something like a Lenovo Yoga would be far more useful than an iPad. I routinely use...

    Wow. Lincoln, I read your article with interest, as I use a laptop, iPad and phone regularly. The downsides of not having a decent USB port on the iPad keep me thinking I might try and look for a...

    I don't understand why that is a 'real deal killer'. It's free, right? The Onedrive account I mean.

    As someone who uses both Macs and Windows computers, this is good news and shows MSFT is perhaps changing for the better under the new leadership. The downside for them is that they are very late to...

    I understand, but I feel safer doing it one at a time, so I can take a day to see if there is fallout. This is being spliced between my 'real' work (G).

    Hiding the updates did away with the attempts to install, now I'm installing one at a time. First few worked fine. What a pain. But it is a way out. Remember, Restore points!
  19. Windows 7 - Update problems with last security updates

    Haven't had a problem before now, but I unfortuntely choose to have my Dell XPS running Windows 7 64 bit automatically update itself (I had foolishly not had any problems before now for years).

    Got plenty of good software like that, none found anything. But a good idea for others to understand.

    Thanks. I had done some searching on Google itself, but was unaware of the Chrome FAQ/Product forum. Still will be vigilant.

    Win 8 'versions'

    XP lives, indeed. As does Win 7 Ultimate.

    As someone else said, I really do want MSFT to succeed, but once again, their marketing wing, full of overeager MBA youngsters who seem to 1) forget the...
