  1. Before you go playing with things...have a look here: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-share-files-and-printers-without-homegroup-windows-10 See if this makes life easier!!
  2. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Bluetooth-Mouse-Windows-Tablets/dp/B00JUHDYSO
  3. makes sense. I think a hammer would sort the issue!
  4. 5 options.....root that bad boy!! and install a lighter custom ROM. The reality is, the specs on that phone are not powerful enough to run the latest Android OS and give you a good user experience; the internal memory will struggle with the latest OS (11) with some users of the BETA release reporting up to 16gb of space being reserved for system. I'm with TX - if you can afford it, and it's an option; upgrade your phone.
  5. The SE201 is the HDD model number - It's a Hitachi drive - The SVEN is a totally different product. Like you though i 'm curious to know exactly how it's been encrypted? We use USB encryption at work - So the encryption code on the external drive looks for the unlock code from a thumbdrive - a bit like the old CISCO VPN number generators. Even with encryption - Does Boot and Nuke not do the trick?
  6. OK; I've got it folding on my work laptop. No way to choose to fold for COVID so I've left it on 'Any disease'
  7. Happy Birthday!! Enjoy your lock down and have a beer!!
  8. Blue screens are normally caused by driver conflicts; damaged file system or failing hardware - so PCMatic probably isn't going to help. Can you post the error code when it happens? There should be a log stored under 'Event Viewer' and
  9. Bloomin 'eck Kurts back as well. This self isolation is pushing you all back to the Pit Good to see you Bud!
  10. Hey.....Welcome back!!
  11. Always remembered.....I'll raise a beer to your memory later bud!
  12. Hey.. I recently used this piece of software to switch a HDD for a SDD. Simply put the SDD in a external USB doock and cloned the HDD - Then just installed the SSD into the laptop. Perfect all files and setting etc; so no having to reinstall things or dig around for license keys!! https://forums.pcmatic.com/topic/209453-clonezilla-hard-drive-cloning-software/?tab=comments#comment-1819677
  13. SWF is a flash file......try opening it with IE or Chrome.....but only open it if you are sure it came from a trusted source.
  14. I don't think the OS is causing that - Those temps shouldn't cause the system to freeze. Have a look in BIOS and see if there's a temp cutoff you can change. I'd also try running Mint Lite and see if the issues resurface - that will rule out an OS issue if they do. Could also be a faulty sensor or the fan itself.
  15. Some days I wish we had a 'Like' button!!
  16. I gave up folding when they stopped supporting my graphics card. But it's sad to see [email protected] go.
  17. Sounds like when you switch it off it's actually 'Hiberbnating' - Have a look into the shutdown options and look for how the PC is setup to act when 'Shutdown' is selected.
  18. Long time 'Pitster' and Trusted Malware Tech.....Happy Birthday!!
  19. Longtime no see!! Happy birthday
  20. @Windsurf48 Just having the same issue with my Lenovo laptop (W10 pro).....did an 'Install and shutdown' and when I booted up later i get the 'Automatic repair loop'; restarts a few times then goes to advanced start options. I have an active admin account enabled but don't know / forgot the password. Very anoying - I'll go into safe mode at the weekend and see what it's stuck on.
  21. Very loooooong time no see!! Not many people hanging in anymore, but we try to keep in going!!
  22. Happy birthday...hope you have a good one!
