  1. In my opinion anything that is "downloaded" through your router that contains malicious software could potentially "infect" any "device" whether it be computer, your router, TV, Fire stick, Phone, or tablet that is connected to the router. I would be very cautious with what I download.
  2. 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

    Pc to TV via HDMI

    If I'm not mistaken you have to hit a function key ....F3 of maybe F10?? Look for an image of a "monitor" on the function keys. I know that's the way I have to do it on my old Sony laptop..not that the Lenovo would be the same way though. Just a thought.
  4. If you upgrade to the Windows Fall Creators update you will find that you can no longer control the size of your text in menus and such. The text will be smaller that you have it set for. There is a download from Wintools that works great for giving you that ability again. Here is the link for the tool called System Font Size Changer. It allows you to backup your present settings just in case and there is no malware attached to it either.

I know better than to click on anything within their emails.. That's how they get you! So fay my account at Apple has not been hacked or locked. You're funny nigsy!

    Windows 7 updates 2017-11-24

    Y I have the same problem on my wife's Windows 7 computer. This update refuses to install. I followed your instructions except I don't get a "run as Administrator" when I right click the installer. Anyway after it goes through the process I get a box stating that the update is not for my computer or something to that effect. ( I'm not at that computer right now)??? Been trying to fix this since the update came out. Any other ideas?

    Revert back from Windows 10 to Windows 8?

    About the only option you may have at this point would be to restore your laptop by a recovery partition on the laptop or restore CDs if they were included with your Acer when you purchased it. Give us the Model number of your Acer and we might be able to tell if it has a recovery partition or not.
  8. I don't have Office 2016 but in my version when that happens I have to adjust my margins on the original page. That's what works for me. Might have a look at that.

    pink screen

    There is a way to kill the program from running ...while at the command prompt type CMD and hit enter. Type "tasklist" without the quotes and a list of everything that is running will appear. look and see if there is something called "slimcleaner" or slimeclean.exe or something to that effect. If there is you can kill it from running. Let's say it's called slimcleaner.exe" for this example. You would type the following: taskkill /C /im slimcleaner.exe and press enter. that should kill the program. Then reboot.

    pink screen

    runball try this.. reboot computer and start tapping F8 to get the black screen where you select safe mode but select safe mode with command prompt.once there press enter then type "rstrui.exe" without the quotes and press enter. This should bring up system restore points if there are any at all. Note that there may not be any if they were not set up from within Windows to begin with. I saw where you said that there wasn't any restore points listed in the beginning of your post.

    pink screen

    Slimcleaner is a piece of crap! Should never be installed on a computer. It's very misleading in what it does. When you get into safe mode, can you see the start button? If so see if you can go to control panel then to programs and features. If it's listed in the installed programs, try to uninstall the program. Might be a start.

    MS Excel Starter slow to open spreadsheets

    Open your Excel App first then open your spreadsheet. See if that helps. You might also see if you can reset Microsoft Office from the control panel. Just highlight Microsoft Office Starter Edition and click change, then click repair. That should reset it and take care of any "bugs" you may have.

    Restore point on win 10

    Unless something has changed that I am not aware of, System Restore will only use the C: drive for restore points. That being said you can limit the amount of space being used on the drive for restore points. You can also back up your restore points to a different drive but the original restore points will be on C: drive. Perhaps in a pinch you could back them up then delete them from C drive but I wouldn't recommend doing that.

    Video Downloader for Youtube

    No software needed! Just copy your youtube link, open a new tab on your browser, type in "www.ssyoutube.com" without the quotes and paste your copied link into the box. You will see another area open up below your pasted link with options of format and resolution to download. Make your selection and save to computer. No need to download installers or software.
