  1. Applause, applause. I know they have to make money to stay in business, but their greed is ridiculous. <>
  2. The troubles all started with Chrome. I made NO changes to anything. It just doesn't like my Win 7 Dell. One of my sons is visiting me and uses Chrome on my other pc, a HP Win7. I will give Chrome another try when I get my next refurbished Win 7 PC. Until then, Chrome, get lost. rgsmile <>
  3. No browser extensions have shown up. I also run Malawarebytes and Stinger. Somehow, though, I have not rec'd a daily newsletter from FileHippo for a few weeks. I have used it for years to update my apps. I searched but found no way to sign up for the newsletter, only new apps that I do not trust. rgsmile <>
  4. I use Revo Uninstaller and no unwanted programs have appeared. I also use Spywareblaster and Super AntiSpyware Professional and Ccleaner Pro. SAS removes the Pups. If I am in Chrome and try to sign into my Yahoo/Frontier webmail, I enter my sign in name and password, but it just takes me back to my sign in page. A round-robin. When I remove Chrome, I'm able to sign into my webmail (if needed very seldom), without any problem. I removed Chrome and now am happier. Thanks for trying to help. rgsmile <>
  5. according to the internet, all of the ad blockers have problems. I do not need more problems. While I am using Chrome, I cannot even sign into my mail. I have to use IE in order to use my mail. So, I guess just getting rid of Chrome is the only solution. Why is Google so greedy that it makes things complicated due to all their ads. BOO!
  6. In my above post there are two underlined popup ads buried. Words are "click" and "lower". This is part of what I mean. While ads are a necessary evil, Chrome's are Hell. rgsmile <>
  7. I do like Chrome for watching Netflix with its backwards/forwards 10 sec moves. But, when I do surveys, or emails, or newscast, or streaming, Chrome keeps sending me these popup, no-sense, ads. No sense, because they do not apply to me. Also they slip highlighting words in various articles, that if you happen to pass over, they popup until you move the mouse, and if you happen to click, they show a full page ad. BOO! One of my sons went into the Chrome (settings, I think) and checked, or unchecked, a box to stop ads, but to no avail. Those idiot popup ads are still there. Also ads popup on the lower right screen and show many different ads, including recipes. I have to keep going from IE to Chrome to keep peace in my brain. Does anyone have any suggestions, other than remove Chrome completely? Thanks in advance for any help. rgsmile <>
  8. Thanks Tx Redneck for the notification. It worked fine. Glad the members were able to fix it. rgsmile <>
  9. TxRedneck, you said , "As to not getting your responses via email, there was a forum software update recently and it may have "broken" any subscriptions to topics you had in place. Remove said subscription and reapply it, then let's see if that problem is corrected. If not, I'll get with the forum software folks to see what's goin on." Would you do so. I would like to get responses. Thanks in advance. rgsmile <>

  11. The check is back in the rectangle with an empty circle.
  12. Thanks so much for your help. I unchecked "Notification". I will now close out and then reopen to see if I get any responses. My main problem with win 10 is temporarily solved. I traded my win 10 to one of my grandsons for his win7. So, I'll be Happy until January of next year when win 7 goes non-support. Thanks again for being patient with me. rgsmile <>
  13. This is the only subject that I am using and there is a check mark on the box: "Notify me of replies".
  14. I checked out Windows 7 Emulator for Windows 10, and it looked to me to be for gamers, which I am not. I have trouble understanding new stuff and would get lost quickly. Can a win7 hard drive replace the win10 HD and work? Also, I had to come into the pit to get the responses. None have been sent to me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or omitted something? What did I forget to check, or uncheck. rgsmile <>
  15. Thanks for the responses. I never knew about needing special win7 drivers to get out of Win 10. I will take a look at Windows 7 Emulator for Windows 10. I had to come into the pit to get the responses. None have been sent to me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or omitted something? rgsmile <>
