  1. Hi Thanks for the help, Team-viewer is up and working as this reply is from "Remote Access" You are a "Star Man" Now to find a place to sort out Skype update from MSN. While I was connected up he Said why don't we try Skype, we used to MSN all the time, but never bothered to Up-Date to Skype. I've got Skype working on my PC, that up-dated with no problem; but when I try it on here It stops with this Can't put a picture in here? Anyway off to find a "Topic Slot" for Help Regards El Tel
  2. Hi ... I've dragged this topic out the past as it just about covers my needs and to give the kind people who have already replied the recognition they deserve. My requirements. That being to access my "Brother In Laws" PC some 40 miles away from the comfort of my home. I have to connect up on a regular basis, even if it is just to allow / block a pop up, find a file. This I've found to be far easier than have him turn up on the doorstep with his tower unit in hand. He would first phone me Saying "Hi Bro, what are you up to right now" ... (The door Bell would ring, I would say, "Hang on someone is at the door" ... He would say ... "It's me, put the kettle on and could you fix this while I'm here, (I would have opened the door by now ... ROFL ... "What's up") I've locked mi'sen out of "Whatever" or this no longer works" I hope you kind of guess my dilemma. I have used "NTR Connect" but that stopped working, and one other; but for life of me I can't remember what that was. Probably because it was to hard to use. Please bear in mind that I'm only ONE-UP from a ID 10 T ... PC user myself ... ROFL ... BadBinary gave the above link, to which I already use "LogMeIn"; but this is were my dilemma starts. As of today 21 January 2014, with no prior E-Mail warning; apart from "LogMeIn is no longer FREE" (I just LOVE that word FREE) Therefore I'm busy searching for a FREE alternative. Before I go off and try "Team Viewer" is it still FREE and will I need my "Brother In Law" to bring his tower unit to me first, so that I can remove LogMeIn.? XPS9000 link looks way over my head ROFL. But I did note paragraph 2 about "File Sharing" This I have mastered with "Allway Sync" My Favorites into "Drop Box" taking full advantage of the FREE extra space by sending an "Invite" to "Drop Box" first, accept it; then do the reverse of the remote PC once I've set it up. Therefore when I'm connected up to his PC, it is the same as mine; more importantly all my stuff is backed up. And vise-a-versa. Well that's my "TIP" not my best tip, that would be ... "Never put a "Bulb" in your back pocket and sit down" ... ROFL Regards El Tel
  3. Hi Stamford Glad you have it sorted now, as for the shop "Re-selling" good as new. They need excommunicating. Regards El Tel
  4. Hi Have you tried the default password for your existing router, if you haven't change it. Failing that I would try to reset it to the factory default as in page 4 of the manual you supplied, as it could have been changed by the previous owner. Regards El Tel
  5. Hi. Something similar happened to me when a friend had cleaned the laptop while she waited for some updates to finish and had accidentally turned off the Wireless function ie: like in flight mode. Had me scratching my head for sometime. On looking on-line for a (pdf) user manual it's [FN+F2] to bring the Icon back on. Regards El Tel

    Hi This deserves bringing out the closet, as I've been using this GR8 program for 4 yrs now. I also like the fact that you can reduce the area in which the mouse jumps from one screen to the next. Regards El Tel
  7. Hi ... Ho no not again I worked this out from the 1st post, he just wanted an Icon like one he was used to in his quick launch bar. Umm ... I just add to the thousands I have categorised in my Favourites As with moving files and Folder, left click just moves them; right click gives you the opportunity to copy them, like a template... Something to work with, but with the URL right click also gives you the chance to make it available off-line. Perhaps it's a left over from the Dial-Up days. Make it available Off-Line and Hang-Up then read it later off-line with a cupp'a of whatever takes your fancy ... Regards El Tel
  8. Hi... Here is how I create a "Desk Top Shortcut from my Browser. Once I've first located it as in the image I shrink it down so I can see some of my desktop. Assume the Image below is anything you want to make a shortcut for. Then I "Right Click and Hold" the Icon that is next to the URL in the Address Bar, while holding down the right mouse button I move it to a empty space anywhere on my "Desktop" then let go of the mouse button and wait for a "Pop Up Window" to appear then select "Create A Shortcut Here" ... From my desktop I "Drag & Drop" to my "Quick Launch Bar" This might B a GR8 Tip for everybody... Regards El Tel
  9. Hi Had a similar problem myself. The tip I got was, when the window opens up instead of using the Maximise button. Move the window so that the top left is as close as you can get it to the top left corner, then drag out the bottom right hand corner to the bottom right hand corner of the screen as near as you can. Then use the Maximise button to square it all up. Next Hold the "Ctrl" button while you navigate to the "White" X in "Red" box top right and close it. Then "Shut Down" and "Switch On" Regards El Tel Edit Typo
  10. Hi Juliet I have read the posts from that link and note PC2 version does look right while PC1 looks slightly different. So I will let it update the next time I see the notice. Regards El Tel
  11. Hi I bags your old Laptop ... I have 2 PC's sitting next 2 each other and this is how I transfer files between them, along with Dropbox for Remote access. First I set up a Mshome Network on PC1 so I can see it on PC2 when I connect to that Mshome Network see pictures below. I then create a new shared folder on PC1 within that shared folder, which then can be seen on PC2 almost instantly. After locating a folder on PC1 (To be Moved) I hold the right mouse key down while navigating to the network shared folder on PC1 then let go of the right mouse button while it is hovering over the right folder. From the pop-up window I click on "COPY" then make mi sen a coffee while the folder is copied. You will then see it appear on PC2. Depending on how big the folder is it could take some time. After they are safely on PC2 I do a similar thing on PC2 shared folder to the appropriate place within the Documents and Settings User Name destination. I hope the above pictures help. When I am happy the folder and all the files within are accessible on PC2 with PC1 switched off, I can delete them from the shared network folder. Job done... If I need access to any folders and or files I use Dropbox to which I can invite anybody to it. That way we can both take advantage of extra Free storage. Regards El Tel
  12. Hi I have two PC's side by side, both with AVG 2012 and both update the virus database daily. One PC1 keeps saying AVG a new free version available and needs to be updated, while the other PC2 has never offered the update. These are the versions on each PC1 & PC2 If it is fake how do I stop the popup notice. Regards El Tel
  13. Hi I am all for progress with programs and operating systems, but the likes of Bill Gates forget the one fundamental thing. It is my PC, not his. ( I do with it as I like, within the law. ) All program writers should keep this in mind and not hog valuable PC resources, to which many are often used a couple of times, and then the user closes that program, moves onto something else, but part of the programs stays in memory just in case. Wrong. All programs should completely remove themselves once closed, flush out memory ready for what ever the user wises to proceed with; remember it his PC not the program writers. This is why a universal "Boot and Close Program" is needed. It's main criteria should first read what is available, memory, processor speed, plus what is needed etc, then advise the user what is possible then load accordingly; then store this information to disk within the "Boot and Close Program" folder for ease of access. Anybody up for the challenge. Regards El Tel
  14. Hi Y Normally when I see something like that red screen. Panic sets in thinking it's some kind of virus attack and I'm looking to get out as quick as I can, even pulled the plug on 2 occasions when the browser wouldn't close. But this time I hit print screen 1st. I've never clicked on "Go to my home page instead". Assuming that was the virus payload, the bit that does the damage; the lead you into a false sense of security. After reading your reply, clicking more information, I noted that there was the option to report it as "I think this is a safe website" so I did. On the red screen in big letters, it should say that it is part of "Microsoft Smartscreen Filter" which I had forgot was turned on. Thanks for your help, I did get to nirsoft in the end. Regards El Tel
