    Windows 10 issues

    I think I spoke too soon, it seems slow when I turn it on then when I start to use it, it freezes. After I reboot, it's okay there rest of the day.

    Windows 10 issues

    Hey all. I'm having some freezing issues with my Windows 10 HP computer. I've had this computer for two years and as of late it seems to freeze after I boot it up. Once I turn it on, it will be fine but then after I use CCleaner to clean it, sometimes it would freeze then I reboot it and it's fine. Even though sometimes after I use it or just before I am about to open it, it freezes then. The last two times I've had a scan disk error and it gets repaired when that notification comes up. After I do a reboot, it runs fine the rest of the day until I turn it off for the night. It is updated so I'm wondering if maybe there is a bad update that I need to delete?

    Wireless issue

    Okay, i changed the WPA2 to WPA2 Personal and hopefully it will fix any issues. Got a new modem that is supposed to be faster but I have to admit, lately, it doesn't seem like it so I wanted to see if maybe I can fix something with the router. The website password, I had it on file and tried it and it worked. Thanks.

    Wireless issue

    The make is Linksys and model is WRT54gs. I'm pretty sure I have had it after 2003 but I will check the settings. Thanks. EDIT: I do need to change the password to it anyways, it's too long. LOL
  6. I've had this wireless router for years and it seems for my mom, the internet is not connected. When I checked the settings for the ipad, It is connected, the lock is there but under the name of the wireless network it says security recommendation. When I click it, it says weak security. WPA is not considered secure. Configure your router to use WPA2 Personal (AES) security type for this network. It says this on her phone as well as mine. I use the Macbook but it shows the lock and I'm not sure how to check to see if it's secure. How do I check the router make sure it is secure? Maybe I need a new router? Had it for years.

    Refurb PC won't update Windows

    Maybe there isn't SP2 in Windows 7. I thought it would be in it already as to SP1. EDIT: I can just do 1 update that will seem to be downloading for hours but maybe I need to be more patient?

    Refurb PC won't update Windows

    Will it be okay if I have SP2 or do I need to download SP1?

    Is there something I can download that detect any malware or virus that might be hard to find? Grant it, Norton, Avast and Malwarebytes show no viruses or malware.

    I think you might need to make a new topic because I have no idea.

    I do not seem to have Pokki, I did a search for it and checked the extensions on the Chrome but I don't have it. I do not have Yahoo Partner toolbar installed either. Here are some screen shots of my add/remove programs.

    I uninstalled Norton and installed Avast and there are no viruses or Malware. Once it's on the desktop, it still loads slow when I start to use it or use Chrome. what shall we do now?

    It's okay right now but the last two days it has been slow again. I have run Malwarebytes on the computer but shows no malware. What if I uninstalled Norton and installed Avast? I have Avast on my laptop even though it's a Windows 8.

    E-mail search using free app

    I'm kinda checking to see if there is one. A friend who is a fan of a celebrity that I like had boasted that she found his e-mail address on an app on her smartphone. At first I thought she did a google search but she finally confessed she didn't use the search engines but doesn't tell me what the app was. She seems to know people who know that celebrity so really, I think they the people who know the celebrity gave it to her. As private as the celebrity is, I am surprised that he has his e-mail on an app and would think once the friend found it, he has either had it deleted or changed it to a fake one. I also think maybe the e-mail she found is really used by a staffer and she thinks it's the celebrity and maybe the staffer checks with the celebrity. I asked her what made her decide to search this e-mail and she said she just decided and honestly, I never would have thought to search for it when she hadn't said anything. I've asked her about the e-mails, she tells me they are funny but doesn't get into specifics but I don't really want to get nosy but then.....
