    gsmith-plm - do you have a Ctrl- stroke trapped somehow?

    I value the Sticky Keys feature of Windows, much the easiest way of handling Caps. However, if I trap, and don't use, a Ctrl- stroke, then...

    Agreed with Bobjacq.

    "Obfuscated" was the key word in my first post (#5) in this thread, and, three weeks later, I still find obfuscation in what Tracey and others write. Richard (#230) presses...

    Sudo - thanks, thought that you and the rest of WSL would be interested in the (partial) outcome.

    There is no link to the hotfix at the address that you posted, so I ended up on webchat. That led...

    Event 8, SMSvcHost 4.0.0.0

    Please can someone tell me what is going on here? Running Win 7 Pro 64-bit, connected to a WHS 2011.

    Joe P - you sound as if you may be having the same issue as I have. Running Windows Home Server 2011 (SP1) on a HP Proliant Server, the OS is on the C: partition, and uses about 30 GB of a 60 GB...

    Do not depend on being able to password the Excel workbook. In my experience, they are depressingly easy to hack. Your remedy would appear to lie in your client agreement.

    Consider Free Launch Bar, which I have running on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and on Windows 10 Pro.

    As the name says, it's free, and yet highly customisable.

    The computing world is full of disappearing "lifetime" subscriptons, Malwarebytes to name but one. I got in there, too, while it was still "lifetime". Windows Secrets, presumably, was happy at the...

    Wouldn't it be more correct to say that Penton acquired WS with all its rights AND obligations? You can't just take the rights and walk away from the obligations.

    I have read it again, but cannot find what the future holds for my "lifetime" subscription, which lasts until 2207-07-11 - heaven forfend that this should be an accurate estimate of my lifetime.

    Red Star OS

    I wasn't quite sure where to post this. Is it a serious OS, to be posted under Non-Microsoft OSes? Or would it belong under Security & Scams?

    I found that a Sudoku program insisted on installing MSXML 4.x, Secunia then flagged it as end-of-life. You have to instal MSXML 6.x, and then, if it's still there, uninstall MSXML 4.x. That keeps...

    I have had this problem too. Partly, though, I may have been the cause of the problem, as I use a Windows shell (Classic Shell) in place of the native Windows 10 interface. Somehow, Classic Shell...
