  2. Good morning Rick, a few questions first ! 1. Are you using McAfee for virus protection ?? It can slow down a computer especially while loading ! Windows Defender which comes with Windows 10 is a great protector, that is all i have ever used & never caught anything !! 2. Is this W10 system ?? Thanks Chuck PS. Rick there is no sign of Farbar ever being ran !!
  3. Rick try this program !! Download https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/otl_(oldtimers_list_it).html to your desk top ! If you already have a copy of OTL delete it and use this version. * Double click OTL.exe to launch the program. * Check the following. * Scan all users. * Standard Output. * Lop check. * Purity check. * Under Extra Registry section, select Use SafeList * Click the Run Scan button and wait for the scan to finish (usually about 10-15 mins). * When finished it will produce two logs. OTL.txt (open on your desktop).
  4. Did you download Farbar to your desk top ?? It must be dwnloaded to there ! If it's there open it & see if the report is there or click your mouse here into your topic to see if it captured it there !! If none of this works then re-run it !! Chuck

  11. As a web browser, Chromium is inherently less stable than Chrome, which means it crashes more often and can exhibit other types of undesirable behavior. So in my opinion as a Malware Removal Specialist i would stay away from it, i do not need my computer to crash ! Chuck
  12. I really don't think Jeff would have posted this if it's not true ! He usually does a lot of research on these things !! Chuck
  13. Did you right click on your task bar & see what each process is running before you shut it down ? And is there anything you do not recognize ? Chuck

  15. Howdy Iphigenia & welcome to the forum. We hope your stay here is a great one & can contribute to our forum ! This is what i dug up on that phone so i hope it helps !! Here's how. On your iPhone X, open the Settings app; Now scroll down to Sound & Haptics; Once again, scroll down to the section called 'Sound and Vibration Patterns'.

  17. Attn: Windows 10 Users !! Have you noticed the "meet now" in your task bar ?? Microsoft extended this capability starting in Windows 10 build 20221 by bringing Meet Now right to the taskbar.

No sign ups or downloads needed. Meet Now will open your installed Skype app on any device. Even if you are not signed in, you can join

  25. Hey hpg3, nope your IP address is from your Internet Provider ! So you keep the same IP ...... but you can get a mask IP, which means they hide your IP from anonymity ! ExpressVPN and CyberGhost are both excellent options but they do charge for their services. Long story short: whichever service you pick, you just download an app, run it, and use it to connect to the VPN on demand. It's really that simple. You can Google up some free ones but no one i know have ever used a fake IP !! Chuck
