    Photo display options

    It might be a camera setting...looks like it's trying to jump straight to importing all the pictures rather than just launching the utility. Just had a quick look at some google results - The first screen shot looks like the windows built in photo import screen, not the cannon software in the second picture. You need to look for a setting to launch the cannon software as the default for opening pictures. Might be worth un-installing the cannon software / reboot the machine and reinstall the cannon software and let it walk you through the connection wizard.
  4. I think the upshot is....If you can't remember your passwords, memorable security questions and also don't have access to the numerous other recovery options available (Phone, alternative email etc) you might as well forget it. No provider in their right mind would say...OK , you can't prove its you, but just this once we'll ignore all the security protocols we have in place and grant you access..... What I would say is; go back over every device you have used on the internet recently in the hope that you have left one of them signed in to an account or have the saved password option enabled. Visit every single email provider login page you use and go through all the recovery options; maybe one of the security questions / memorable word answers will trigger your memory.

    Photo display options

    I recently had to change the battery on my Asus laptop (Windows 8.1) which has brought along the usual problems re-learning and re-doing things, I must've pressed the wrong option for displaying photo's when I hooked up my Canon A1400 it displays photo's in a way I would like to change, I've explored but have yet to find a way to change this, the first photo is what I'm presented with as soon as the camera is connected, the 2nd photo is what I've always been used to, how do I change this ?
  7. Well I don't think you will get much help here with passwords....not that you are asking for passwords but help in recovering your accounts. The best we can do is point you to the most obvious answers and that is to contact the services you "lost" your password to. I've been in your shoes and it is tough to get these sort of things figured out. Maybe once you recover your numerous accounts you might think about writing the passwords down somewhere for future reference. Not trying to be harsh or anything but just better safe that sorry. Best of luck to you. PS: I have 2 whole sheets of passwords to my various sites and accounts! I'm getting old and cant remember stuff

    Sunday funnies........

    On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat. In my billfold are a $50 bill and a $2 bill. I figure that with a $2 bill, I can get something to eat and not have to worry about anyone getting irritated at me for trying to break a $50 bill. Me: "Hi, I'd like one seven-layer burrito please, to go." Server: "That'll be $1.04. Eat in?" Me: "No, it's to go." At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it kind of funny. Server: "Uh, hang on a sec, I'll be right back."He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot. The following conversation occurs between the two of them: Server: "Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?" Manager: "No. A what?" Server: "A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me." Manager: "Ask for something else. There's no such thing as a $2 bill." Server: "Yeah, thought so." He comes back to me and says, "We don't take these. Do you have anything else?" Me: "Just this fifty. You don't take $2 bills? Why?" Server: "I don't know." Me: "See here where it says legal tender?" Server: "Yeah." Me: "So, why won't you take it?" Server: "Well, hang on a sec." He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I'm a shoplifter, and says to him, "He says I have to take it." Manager: "Doesn't he have anything else?" Server: "Yeah, a fifty. I'll get it and you can open the safe and get change." Manager: "I'm not opening the safe with him in here. "Server: "What should I do?" Manager: "Tell him to come back later when he has real money." Server: "I can't tell him that! You tell him." Manager: "Just tell him." Server: "No way! This is weird. I'm going in back." The manager approaches me and says, "I'm sorry, but we don't take big bills this time of night." Me: "It's only seven o'clock! Well then, here's a two dollar bill." Manager: "We don't take those, either." Me: "Why not?" Manager: "I think you know why." Me: "No really... tell me why." Manager: "Please leave before I call mall security." Me: "Excuse me?" Manager: "Please leave before I call mall security." Me: "What on earth for?" Manager: "Please, sir." Me: "Uh, go ahead, call them." Manager: "Would you please just leave?" Me: "No." Manager: "Fine -- have it your way then." Me: "Hey, that's Burger King, isn't it?" At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone around the corner. I have two people staring at me from the dining area, and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect. A few minutes later this 45-year-oldish guy comes in. Guard: "Yeah, Mike, what's up?" Manager (whispering): "This guy is trying to give me some (pause) funny money." Guard: "No kidding! What?" Manager: "Get this... a two dollar bill." Guard (incredulous): "Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?" Manager: "I don't know. He's kinda weird. He says the only other thing he has is a fifty." Guard: "Oh, so the fifty's fake!" Manager: "No, the two dollar bill is." Guard: "Why would he fake a two dollar bill?" Manager: "I don't know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?" Guard: "Yeah." Security Guard walks over to me and... Guard: "Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you're trying to use." Me: "Uh, no." Guard: "Lemme see 'em." Me: "Why?" Guard: "Do you want me to get the cops in here?" At this point I am ready to say, "Sure, please!" but I want to eat, so I say, "I'm just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill." I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I'm taking a swing at him. He takes the bill, turns it over a few times in his hands, and says, "Hey, Mike, what's wrong with this bill?" Manager: "It's fake." Guard: "It doesn't look fake to me." Manager: "But it's a two dollar bill." Guard: "Yeah... ?" Manager: "Well, there's no such thing, is there?" The security guard and I both look at him like he's an idiot, and it dawns on the guy that he has no clue. So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and some of those cinnamon thingies, too. This all made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what happens when I try to buy stuff. If I got the right group of people, I could probably end up in jail. You get free food there, too!

    Installing PC Matic

    Hi Gary, Is this rig fully updated through Windows updates? That's the first place that I'd go to trouble-shoot such a message. Please keep us posted. Y

  14. Hi everybody : When I went to run the tests for my PC, I was prompted to install PC Matic. But I kept getting the error that I'm not running Internet Explorer version 5 or Higher. My System consists of Windows 7 Pro 32-bit and Internet Explorer version 11. garystan1952
  15. That's what I see when I try to open the website from this site's home page. So what's up with that? Clicking on it shows it's listed under Scam labled as scamware, rogue software and scareware. I don't quite get it, I thought this site was legit.
  16. Hi, I forgot my passwords for one of my Gmail accounts, Yahoo! Mail, my main Instagram account and, Snapchat (a string of bad luck I know haha) I had to create another e-mail address for the meantime. The thing is when I try 'Forgot Password' it will send a notification to a phone number which no longer works or to an e-mail address that I also forgot my password to. For my main Instagram account (which I have so many memories) I forgot my password and, don't know how to contact in regards that I am indeed ME and, that this is my account. The same goes for my main Snapchat account which has all my contacts I also don't know who to contact from Snapchat to help me; As I have tried to look for a help contact e-mail. Any help or leading me in the right direction would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Devious Verizon Scam Alert

    There are so many scams out there these days and some are better than others. This is one that reminds us to keep our personal information to ourselves. Like the scammers that ask you to verify your Social Security Number to them, this one resets your password, then asks you to verify your new pin. Be careful out there. Here's the scoop from a well respected friend of mine and of the Pit, Devin. https://techtalk.pcpitstop.com/2018/07/26/beware-a-deviously-good-verizon-scam/ Y

    netflix

    I saw that the developers are looking at this issue when going to Netflix in the Edge browser. Is this the browser that you are using when the issue occurs? Are you having the same issue in any other browser(s)? Thanks for any additional information. Much appreciated Y

    netflix

    I suspect she is getting the same error I am. Error Code: H7053-1803. The error doesn't prevent access to Netflix... but it does prevent viewing of videos within Netflix. The Neflix Support page troubleshooting grid advises the following... Note the last question (if all else fails)… MIne didn't start working after following instructions, but it worked fine before I installed pcmatic… I'm skeptical of "coincidence"... Restart your browser Quit your browser. Relaunch your browser. Try Netflix again. Clear browser data Note: Performing the steps below will clear Internet Explorer's saved login data. Open Internet Explorer and select the gear icon . Select Internet Options. Select Browsing History. Select Delete. Check Cookies and Website Data. Uncheck Preserve favorite website data. Select Delete. Try Netflix again. Delete the Indexed DB files Restart your computer. Press and hold the Windows key + R on your keyboard. This displays the Run window. Type %userprofile%/appdata and select OK. Open the Local folder. Open the Microsoft folder. Open the Internet Explorer folder. Delete the Indexed DB folder. Try Netflix again. Perform Windows updates Windows 7 Press the Windows Key on the keyboard. In the search box, type Windows Update. Select Windows Update. Select Check for updates. Select Install updates. Once the updates are installed, restart your computer and try Netflix again. Windows 8 Go to the Charms Menu by pressing the Windows Key + C. Select Search. Select Everywhere from the drop-down menu. If you do not have a drop-menu continue to step 4. Search for WUAPP. Select the WUAPP App. Select Check for Updates. Select Install Important Updates. Once the updates are installed, restart your computer and try Netflix again. Windows 10 Press the Windows Key on the keyboard. Select Settings. Select Update & security. Windows will check for updates. If it does not, select Check for updates. Once the updates are installed, restart your computer and try Netflix again. Do you have PC Matic software installed? Sometimes the PC Matic software can interfere with the player Netflix uses to play TV shows and movies. Quit PC Matic and play your TV show or movie again. If a TV show or movie resumes after you've quit PC Matic, this may indicate that the software is outdated or unintentionally preventing Netflix from playing. Please reach out to the PC Matic software manufacturer to address these issues.

    Test Result Display Fail

    Thanks Y, Well, this is certainly a strange one. I followed your instructions to the letter and after restarting my PC right clicked on IE to "Run as administrator", opened IE, opened Overdrive and saw that I was still logged in so, I logged out, restarted Overdrive, and ran the test with the new ActiveX installed. Unfortunately, I'm still getting the "No Session in Progress" window where the final test results should be displayed. So, something else is preventing Pitstop from that last step. Please note however, over the past couple of days, running Overdrive when I had the opportunity "once in a while" the result would display normally. I'd say two out of ten times it displayed the result page normally. So, like I said, something else is going on. Unless you have any further suggestions, I'll do some more troubleshooting to see if I can find the source of the problem. Until then, thank you for your input Y.

    pcmatic installation

    I have 2 CPUs, one is HP Windows 10, and 1 Dell Windows 8.1. Both have McAfee; both computers came loaded with McAfee. Here is the problem: I am on a limited monthly use of 5GB. What is the download of PcMatic? I am looking to purchase the lifetime plan. Do you have PcMatic in CD form that can be installed?
