    And personally, I don't consider it an old approach to separate files and apps/OS. If you have a system go down and need access to your files, you don't want to be dancing with getting an OS up that...

    Sorry - but don't you need to set the location of Documents also? Just moving the files to the standard location - especially if it doesn't yet exist - may not match system settings. Then it will...

    Have no idea what did it, but after Win10 updates, my computer started to crash after about 5 minutes of up time. Attempted to figure out what was going on, then ended up copying the minidump files...

    On AV - I did my research some years ago and decided on ESET. I've found it low impact and very reliable. Kaspersky has certainly been top of the ratings most of that time but is also twice the price...

    Agreed airline pricing is a nightmare. They now use demand algorithms to determine price, so it's become like the stock market.
    However, I certainly favour certain airlines like Alaska. Some of...

    On the Nondestructive Reinstall of Win7 SP1, would it not be worth the time to make a slipstream version of Win7 SP1 and try a nondestructive reinstall that way?

    I did this for XP and Win7 to...

    I also find the LinkedIn purchase worrisome. Like other social sharing sites, it's packed with information about who we're connected with and our backgrounds - but in this case professional.

    I got Pinnacle Studio with some hardware and found it really easy to use compared to some. I don't edit too often though so didn't end up upgrading when I migrated OSs but would certainly also...

    After some time using a spreadsheet then encrypted database (which corrupted), I've now been using LastPass happily for some years. I did do a very successful CSV import. I spent some time after that...

    Interesting article, but I'll agree it is incomplete.

    OH - I use ESET NOD32 AV. After the Win10 upgrade, a few things kept locking up briefly in weird places. I discovered I needed to update to v9 - Then all was fine.

    I migrated both machines from Win8 to 10 when I realized the free period was ending, the major issues where addressed, and I didn't want to be in the last minute rush. I reviewed recent WinSecrets...

    On Auto Win10 updates, I have to wonder if Microsoft is using some past action as "permission". For example, if someone long ago "reserved" Win10 when requested, then later got concerns and didn't go...

    I was in no rush to upgrade to Win10 (from 8.1). But as it's become apparent that the free period is likely to end and I didn't want to do it during a last minute rush, I scheduled the time to...

    Interesting detail that you can just copy files out of the Windows.old folder and they'll then behave normally. Taking a look a recent version, it looks like they're virtualized somehow. You can...

    The operating system only ever installs in it's own partition as it makes it Bootable. A new install would automatically create it's own partition on the drive.

    Thanks, Tracey
    I hadn't caught the New Desktop button so wasn't sure where that was controlled.

    Yes, it would have been nice to have compared it to something like GMail for a comparison. I've not used a standalone tool for years.
    I've continued to find GMail effective. I occasionally check...

    He was reporting on AV Comparables testing. Zone Alarm's web site does not indicate their product includes anti-spam. That would be why AV didn't include it.

    Seems ADrive has changed. A friend of mine uses it and got the space free. That may be why someone recommended it.

    I still usually build my systems from parts. While I found generic systems from local builders that had many of the specs, I've shifted to a
