  1. Cheers; @Awesomous Best just to leave it to one forum if you are running diagnostic / removal tools as we may give conflicting information that'll make the issue worse. If you can't get the issue fixed on the other forum please post back.
  2. Hi; Not sure about PC Matics capabilities but you could try running Malwarebytes: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/thankyou/ Just use the free version and run it; see what it throws up. You will need to turn off PC Matic when you run MB as PCMatic will probably block it and MB will see PCMatic as a threat!!
  3. That explains a lot: We've all assumed it was a mouse causing the issue - hence disabling the touchpad Have a look here: https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/windows-10-slowing-down-your-touchpad This is where to find touchpad settings - Try playing with the 'Sensitivity' see if that helps. Also - Does the laptop have a touch screen?
  4. Happy birthday - I know where ever you are it's party time!! I'll raise one to you later bud
  5. 1st disable the touchpad as previously suggested: Click Start , and then type mouse in the search field. Click Change your mouse settings. Click Additional mouse options. In Mouse Properties, click the TouchPad tab. ... Uncheck Double Tap to Enable or Disable TouchPad. ... Click Apply, and then click OK. Do you still have a problem? Is this a USB mouse or is it in the old PS2 port? Have you tried a different mouse? When did you last change the battery? What surface are you using the mouse on? (Polished surfaces can cause the laser to
  6. Hi; Depends on whether there's any registry entries linked to the directory. What I would do - - Do a clean install - Rename the clean directory something like dir_old - Import the old directory (I'm assuming it's all one big folder?) - Reboot the PC and see if it all works If it doesn't simply remove the imported directory and re-name dir_old to what it should be. Some software you can do it, some you can't.
  7. I've merged the questions as you've already posted and I've answered it.
  8. No. Not unless you take out a paid subscription; even then some of the adverts are part of the video.
  9. Happy birthday!! Hope you have a good one.
  10. Happy birthday chap. Hope you have a good one!!

  12. Yes it should work with your adaptor. I use it with a video capture card (but in Linux); the Windows version is in Beta but it's free!! and it's an excellent video editing tool also. Just try it; you've nothing to loose.
  13. It won't work with VLC. You need software that will capture and convert the video; there are some great paid for ones out there like Roxio; if you want to try for free, see if you can get Kdenlive to work - It is designed for Linux and I use it; there is a Windows version but it's in Beta: https://kdenlive.org/en/download/ **Please read the known issues on the download page.
  14. Is your system 32 or 64bit? Most of these USB stick are cheap Chinese rubbish and will only run on 32bit systems. Did you install the driver from the disc? W10 native drivers should work; so you may want to uninstall the software and roll back the driver if you can.
  15. I have no idea why it doesn't work - But looking at all the negative reviews - And the ones that state 'Doesn't work with windows 10' or more worryingly 'Software contains malicious code' I wouldn't have bought it. There far more reliable solutions out there.
  16. Is it a Smart TV? There are programs like 'All share'; or most smart phones have an inbuilt sharing app / setting but it needs a smart TV or something like a Google Chromecast for older TVs. You might still not get full screen - But you will get a TV sized version of your phone screen. Huwaweii phones have a 'Smart' desktop' which basically gives you a chromebook screen on the TV with all your apps.
  17. @Tx Redneck Interesting stuff - It's been a while since I messed with RAM timings but I always found slowing the faster rated sticks down slightly and increasing the slower stick up to match 'in the middle' always worked best. Like I mentioned to KD5, in the real world I don't think you'll notice any difference if you get the configuration right. Interesting video though.
  18. I've been looking into this as it sparked an interest in something I didn't know. From what I can see Flex mode is automatically enabled on any MOB when mixed RAM is used. The BIOS will report 'Memory Running in Flexmode' at POST. It seems unless you're benchmarking or OCing real world loss of speed by not running in Dual Channel Vs Flex seems to be limited.
  19. Hi; Wasn't sure; but found this: https://serverfault.com/questions/912283/can-mixing-ram-memory-size-on-its-own-reduce-dual-channel-performance/912298 Think it explains it pretty well. I guess the question is - Does your Motherboard support Flex mode?
  20. Don't know about Supershield...but can you Whitelist the browser or the extensions?
  21. Have you run the manufactures disc health utility? But I'm with TX, time for an SSD!!
  22. What if you start in safe mode? Does the HD run at 100% still?
