  1. You can do video chat and games on a Chromebook. Games would be browser based or you also have the ability to install and use Android apps on them as well. They have many "benefits" such as no malware(but there are questionable browser add-ons in the Chrome Web Store), your data is encrypted and secure off of the computer, they boot VERY quickly, have great battery life, etc. I have and use both and they both have their pros v cons. There are pricey Chromebooks, but those are the "premium", not the mainstream. Like you, I've had great luck with Acer products, but at the end of the day, you'll have to decide what's best for your monies. Tx
  2. Hey Joe and We're not seeing the email address you use for your forum account as one used for a paid product. Did you use a different email address for your product subscription? Tx
  3. That's a heckuva laptop Jim and very kind of you to consider it for him. Do you know what his main uses would be? if he's going to be on the internet 99% of the time and only using a web browser(no CAD/Rendering, etc) a Chromebook is a whole lot cheaper and will do the vast majority of what folk use a pc for anymore today. Look at it like this, if he's not going to do anything different than he'd do on a mobile device, just have a bigger screen for it, Chromebook is the way to go(IMO). Tx
  4. Hey Hammer and Sorry you're having difficulty with PC Magnum, if you please, open a ticket with our support desk at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ so we can see what's goin on. Tx
  5. Hello yonkersjon and It's never advised to defrag an SSD. PCMatic detects drive types and will only defrag regular hard drives. If your E: drive is not and SSD and we're not defragging it as expected, please open a trouble ticket so we can get some more info from you. You can open one at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ Tx
  6. Hey jeb, your double-posted thread was locked for a reason. When each of us signed up here at the PCPitstop forums, we had to agree to the Guidelines that govern how we're to use and participate on the forums. Number 3 of the guidelines states " 3) Do not post the same topic in more than one forum. Pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure, put it in the General Discussions forum, say you were not sure where it belonged, and someone will move it to the proper forum for you." That being said, it's likely that the wireless adapter has failed, but as it were, you were given good info that we've seen no action or response from you in its regards. I'm going to lock this thread and as well, please adhere to the guidelines which I've linked above. Tx
  7. Hey modelmeister and You can right click on the Super Shield icon in the system tray and select either Pause for 10 Minutes or Pause for 1 Hour. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to send em over to our support crew at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ Thanks for giving us the opportunity to serve you! Tx
  8. Hey Gregg and If you'll open a ticket with our support desk, we should be able to get an answer for ya. You can open one here. https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ Tx
  9. It looks like it's 666mhz vs the top bein 800mhz,if I'm reading the labels correctly. If that's the case, your mobo will clock the rest of the ram to the slowest speed dimm in the board. But to answer your question, it should work.
  10. You, know, I have no idea. I inherited Admin, but the time I was a mod, it was never mentioned. I'll see what I can find out about the pword. As to your question of buy/sell traffic, I'm fairly confident in saying it's dead.
  11. cmstppr, how are you sir?! You regularly cross my mind sir. I do believe our folders have either passed or moved on to other things. We're blessed to see you post here again man. How are you doin these days? Tx
  12. Thank you for contacting PC Matic Customer Service. Please open PC Matic and click on Options>Scan Options and check that the Type of Malware Scan is set to Quick and not Full. Be sure to click on the green Save button before closing the Options screen. Full will scan every file on the computer and can literally take hours. Quick will find 99% of all malware that could be hiding on the computer but should run in much less time. Please let us know if that does not resolve the issue.
  13. Hey Fleece, Per our ToS we agreed to when signing up here, this isn't something we aren't at liberty to discuss or condone. Tx
