    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    I have an AT&T router. The machine on 7 is connected to the internet, but I hardly ever use a browser on it. It's mainly my home server.

    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    I'm still using 7 on one of my desktops. I have ESET Internet Security and Malwarebytes Pro version. Am I concerned? NO! You can do a quick check here at GRC Sheilds Up: My results: THE EQUIPMENT AT THE TARGET IP ADDRESS DID NOT RESPOND TO OUR UPnP PROBES!

    Serious Sam 4 Released

    Available on Gog and Steam. I guess there are some bugs. Probably better off to wait for bug fixes. Some are really bad. Looks like a rushed game.

    How do I fix the windows 10 desktop?

    I've never seen this before and I have no idea how to fix it. It's my father-in-laws Dell laptop. It was running 7 and he wanted to upgrade it to 10. After the upgrade, it still looks like the pic on the right side - the task bar. I can't move or change anything. I then installed Open Shell and...

    Can't safely eject external HDD or USB

    Try This If it does not work for you then uninstall it. I used it on my win7 machine because I like to be able to hide devices that do not need to be removed.

    Transferring Applications from Laptop SSD to a New PC Build

    You could try License Crawler to retrieve the actual license. I did this with my old win 7 machine on a new install of 10. I needed to get the license key for Office 2010.

    If the lockdown wasn't bad enough Windows 10 continues to screw life up

    The thing that is really stupid are the new versions every 6 months. Just when they start to fix the bugs, a new version is released that causes all kinds of issues. It would be nice if they waited a full year to release a new version and not force it down your throats for the update. I think...

    Update 1903 to 2004?

    Yeah I can't wait until I get tired of gaming so I can ditch windows. I already have a laptop with Linux Mint 20. I actually started with 17 but now I'm up to 20 with a fresh install on an old Thinkpad T60. I have it setup running VB with Windows 7.

    Trouble installing Windows 10 on a 2009 Acer Aspire laptop

    I agree with B00nie. I have Linux Mint 20 installed on a older Lenovo Thinkpad laptop. Works great especially if used a SSD as a boot device. If you need a Windows app from the past, you can install Wine and run the app from that. I have installed Office 2003 and 2007 using Wine.

    Once again I turn to my [H] family for help (Excel 2016)

    What about hard drive corruption? You could run a check of the drive by right-clicking and selecting properties, then tools, then click the button that says check.

    Win10 won't post after going haywire in Sleep mode

    Until they started to screw with the 7 & 8 user base with telemetry and crap in 2015. Your best bet if you have to reinstall it is to avoid all updates and do them manually.

    Do you use anti virus / anti trojan with Win 10?

    Windows 10 will automatically disable its own Windows Defender antivirus when you install third-party antivirus. If you uninstall the third-party protection, Windows 10 will turn back on its own antivirus. I rather by sure by using a...

    Win10 won't post after going haywire in Sleep mode

    Yeah if it wasn't for my gaming bug, Win7 would be my last MS OS.
