  1. true that...some pages i need have to have adobe tho...so i had to get it

    TD: I have used Foxit Reader for several years now and no prob., downloads everything

    that I have tried and it stays well updated also. Sites want you to use Adobe but, Foxit

    will download it.

    I also use Secunia PSI and it keeps all my stuff updated or lets me know that an update

    is available. I don't include MS Update on it though.

    Just a thought.

  2. CA3LE: I am sho nuff glad you got it fixed. Thanks.

    I may not be the brightest screwball on the block but, I am kinda like Coknuck.

    I have been using the same Junk Protection for a lot of years and have never (Knock on wood)

    had a bug, virus, insect or web bat on any of my Equip. to this point. (Knock on wood again)

    Back to work doing NOTHING.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Whoops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Win. 7 SmartScreen is popping up saying this is unsafe website, it pops up every time

    I change pages. This just started today when I tried to test my speed. It says it has

    been reported to Microsoft as containing threats to your PC and personal or financial

    information. First time I have ever had this pop up.

    Some one needs to check it out.

  4. This is what I get from Suddenlink 30 miles east of Dallas and I am happy with it. We

    have very few problems here since they finished installing fiber optic and got it set up.

  5. Folks need to remember that they have the power to change things by using their power

    to vote.  I have friends that do a lot of bit#hing and whining about the sorry state of things

    but, come time to vote some are too busy to vote.  Those are the ones that I tell to go talk

    to someone else as I don't want to hear it.  I can tell you one thing and that is that this ole

    boy votes every time.  IMO people who don't vote have no voice in anything.

    What I have stated is History and the Future.

  6. Computers have been using me about 5 yrs. and I have been using them

    for about 5 yrs.  I don't really want to learn how to repair them, I just want

    it to work when I want to use it.

    I mainly use mine for e-mail, breaking news, Medical news that I can use

    to argue with my Dr when I do go to see him.  Seems he always wants

    some blood or pee.  He always wants me to take a Statin drug and I tell

    him don't waste your ink as I am not gonna take them.    :haha: :haha:

  7. I read most of the Micro#$%&*$  Kb articles about SP3, when

    I read the one that basically said that it installed all the updates

    from the past, even the ones I opted not to install, that was


    IMHO it is only some more forcefeed from MS to try getting you

    to buy Vista when you get tired of the SP3 junk.

  8. WELCOME BACK SOLDIER and thank you for your service.

    I am glad that you made it back in one piece, guess you didn't

    volunteer for anything per my advice.

    Off into the wild blue yonder.

  9. If anyone is worried about defragging, go to Ashampoo.com and try the

    Magical Defrag.  I have used it for about a year and it has done a very

    good job for me.  I am not a  [nerd] or a  [geek].    :haha: :haha:
