Re: Deep Discounts on Office and Windows 10 Pro

Maybe start a new post over in the Games Discussion forum about the games! Especially about the Mystery Case Files and Nancy Drew game. I've read virtually nothing buy bad reviews of HeRInteractive, the new game, the game not running on computers that meet the specs, refusal to give refunds and peop...

Re: Photobucket problem

Yes. A lot of people who use Photobucket had issues when they changed their policies in November concerning third party hosting of images such as Avatars. I would contact them or see if they have anything new in their FAQs addressing it. Everyone I know who posted about it at GB said the one day the...

Re: Good Morning

And a good morning to you too, Winfrey! It is snowing heavily here right now. It's a very pretty snow, coming down nice and soft with no wind. It's a very pretty snow for those of us snuggled in our warm houses with a lovely cup of black coffee with the gas fireplace going! SOOOO glad I don't have t...

Re: Spoof Amazon email

Now, that's excellent! And quite appropriate. It's why I only have unbreakable ornaments!

Re: Spoof Amazon email

It is indeed! A picture from about 2007 when she was just a year old. Although she's 13 now and has some issues, she's not too old to climb into the tree and knock all the ornaments off! I count 8 of them on the floor in both the living and dining rooms! I put them back and she just takes them off a...

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

Definitely see how it goes. I wonder if you have the full Defender on your Windows 7 or if that is an update. They didn't switch it to a full anti-virus program until Windows 8.

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

Make sure you aren't using TWO anti-virus programs! Defender is considered an anti-virus, so if you use the Spectrum Suite, make sure you disable and anti-virus part of it. Two ant-virus programs are going to fight each other. That's why I use Malwarebytes Pro with Defender... Malwarebytes is made t...

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

This is kind of an interesting history of MSE and Defender. When Defender was launched with Windows 8, MSE was built in. I "believe" it is the same on Windows 7 now with some of the updates.

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

I love Tony! I agree with him that Asus and Lenovo are the best branded laptops. He also uses some of my favorite utilities like Hijack This. And I'm really curious about the story with the 85 year old woman! I am not a fan of Webroot because of the large "footprint," but I would never have thought ...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

Some people have issues with this kind of movement. Here is something from Chrissie at GB than might help... I suffer from motion sickness too but what I found was that you can look all around & move by just using the on-screen directional arrows. (Reminded me of The Carol Reed games actually!) Ther...

Midnight in Salem

So, the latest Nance Drew game was released a few days ago. Is anyone here playing it? I'm curious to see what others thing. The game has been getting scathing reviews. Personally, I'm not getting it.
