    Thanks for the explanation. As you guessed, I had assumed that Remote Desktop meant what the name implies, i.e. connection to another PC in a different town or country, such as accessing one’s own PC...

    That's a real surprise, but I'll take your word for it. No time for wading through annual reports unnecessarily.

    Thanks Joe, I believe this is what I have seen before. Nothing there to interest me.

    With regard to #2, it’s a matter of common sense. Bill Gates became one of the richest men in the world because...

    IF is the key word in first sentence.
    Unable to understand sentence 2.

    Upgrade Win 8.1 Home to Pro, or not.

    Win 10 insists on patches being automatically installed as soon as issued, unless one installs the Pro version, or higher. This despite a history of poorly designed patches causing havoc on many...

    Curious to know how you determined this, as the pop up message doesn't mention encrption, in fact its not at all informative to non-techies.

    Thanks for the link and the useful information. Knowing that RAM isn’t going to restrict any downloads is reassuring, but it seems I would need to be present to resume an interrupted d/l.

    A...

    Is ‘resume protection’ something one manually switches on or off?

    Still interested in discovering where the download terminated, and if possible why, this morning I thought it might be worth...
  11. Why do video downloads require so much memory?

    I downloaded Götterdämmerung from the Wiener Staatsoper overnight. Starting shortly after midnight, I watched it for some time, before switching off the monitor and going to bed.

    When the monitor...

    Like me, the OP probably doesn't have a mobile phone, but is unwilling to admit it.

    Both cases seem very similar, except for the beginning. You were changing admin rights when the password ceased to function, whereas I started downloading an opera before going to bed, woke up during...

    I logged in as George this morning and the inverted commas /@ issue has returned to normal. This probably coincided with the creation of a new password for the George Lee account, as I noticed...

    Intriguing. This raises the possibility that my PC is not infected.

    If the number keys were entering something else, it would explain why my PIN was rejected, but not the password, although, as...

    Thanks to Bruce, my PC is almost back to normal, even though it may well be infected. I admit to being somewhat irritated that he only went over the options already listed with numbered bullet points...

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    I use a normal keyboard, letters, numbers and the other odds and sods. Unable to understand the reference to an eye icon.

    The link just goes over what I wrote in...
  18. Locked out! Forgotten password or infection?

    When I started the PC this morning my pin number was rejected, and I have no idea of the password.

    Background. Until a couple of months ago I had a 15 character password, the name of a small area...

    Thanks, that works with Win8.1 also. Restored both the volume control and network connection icon, the latter more important with current connection problems

    Gee, 5 minutes to download the entire opera is amazing, when Berton reckoned 10 hours. You must have a really fast fibre optic connection.

    Interesting. I have the 10th anniversary concert of Les Misérables with 17 Valjeans on VHS, later transferred to DVD, so it must have been at least 10 years ago. probably dumped the VHS by now.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Midnight to 8 am is free time, outside the 10 GB limit. That's when I install new versions of Windows on the three machines, and sometimes apps if near the end of the...

    Doesn't pausing the playing also pause the download? Must give it a try tonight.

    Thanks for that. As mentioned in #4, I was put off by FF blocking the installation as potentially malicious, but you appear not to be having any problems, so will give it a go.
