In Topic: unable to run HALO in Windows 10

problem solved..................thanks to all for the good advice................I needed to download the latest patch, and then it started properly and seems to be running well.


In Topic: how to search for icons on my computer

28 June 2017 - 10:32 AM

thanks scr4wl

 

I've never used powershell, but it seems to me that the command-line that you have shown would only find files of the type "*.ico". Is that correct?

 

I am looking for something that will find ALL the icons on the computer, whether they are *.ico, or *.png, or any other icon-appropriate extensions. Will the powershell command do that?


In Topic: Flash Player problems?

09 January 2017 - 09:12 AM

thanks to Nimrod and ANTITHAT for the prompt responses............After taking the precautions that have been suggested, I think that I've configured both Firefox and Opera to not run Flash before asking permission.

 

But, I guess that I am still vulnerable if I am on a site that requests to use Flash, and if I answer "yes" because I want to view the content, I am still vulnerable at that point. I'm using F-Secure as my security software, hopefully it will detect something malicious..............not sure about that.


In Topic: Is there something about Windows 10 that makes Thunderbird slow?

OK, so how do I proceed to troubleshoot this? Is the problem with my computer or is it with Charter.net email? What are the steps to take to troubleshoot, and in what order?

Any reason for not using gmail to access your charter email? Or using firefox? 

well, I like Thunderbird and am comfortable with it..........is there an advantage to gmail or firefox?
