  1. The top folder is for sure a backup folder, and the next one is an image backup. It appears these were made with windows backup on, probably, a windows 7 system. What I don't understand is. you say you backup daily and that top folder hasn't been modified in nearly a year. From this, I conclude that you changed how you do backups last October. My guess is that since then your "new" procedure is backing up somewhere else... not on this drive - unless you are backing up in your quicken 2020 folder. I suspect that if you check the settings for whatever program you are using to backup, you will find where they are being stored.
  2. Got it. All of my relatives are from Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, or Oklahoma - so I'm completely conversant with "fixin" as meaning "getting ready to" or "about to". I also understand that "ginna" = gonna. Fina is a new one to me. I supposed I should have been able to figure it out...but I just couldn't seem to put the pieces together. Thanks. Here is an interesting video, that seems obvious to me as every expression in here is used regularly with the people around me (except for "catty cornered". We say "kitty cornered".) and we are in the NorthWest rather than the south. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNgQtWyK45Q
  3. Need a little help here... I don't get it. Maybe I'm too old and this is a young punk joke.
  4. I've only had Windows 10 for a few months. I've had a total of Zero problems with it so far. Seems to be fast and stable. I really drug my feet moving from Windows 7 (which I also liked), but so far have found Windows 10 to be a better system. However, I've not tried to fold on any of them.
  5. And now for something completely different: How about a picture of some topless chicks wearing short skirts...
  6. Maybe try this troubleshooter? https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjGtafAlcnqAhUeJzQIHU6dBtYQrAIoAzAAegQIBhAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ifixit.com%2FAnswers%2FView%2F552839%2FPlay%2BStore%2BApp%2BDownload%2Bissue&usg=AOvVaw1n4iXAzjptvxklakSJAD-Q
  7. I'm not sure I fully understand your question... but that blue screen looks to be a "real" blue screen.
  8. Some Fathers Day... I was just sitting in a recliner. Naked. Watching one of my favorite movies. Eating ice cream and doritos. Just relaxing and minding my own business. Then some jerk at Walmart called the cops.
  9. Uhm... you do realize that this issue was 6 years ago - right?
  10. According to HP you have 8 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB). There are two slots and it can handle 32 GB. I stopped worrying about matched memory. There are several real world studies that show there is little if any advantage to marched pairs. It also looks like you could upgrade your M.2 SSD to 500 GB
  11. I'm glad they have stopped... but they shouldn't come back when windows updates. If they do, then please post back.
  12. AdwCleaner is owned by Malwarebytes. It has always been free. Malwarebytes also has a free version that I've used for many years. It also has a paid version that offers realtime protection. In other words, it runs in the background like an antivirus. The free version only does a scan when you tell it to. Here is a link to their site instead of the direct download link: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/
  13. I'm going to assume you are running Windows 10 In the white box in the lower left of your screen that says "type here to search" type in : add or remove programs - then hit enter. The apps & features settings should open. Scroll down to the M's and see if any McAfee programs appear. If they do, then click on them one at a time and select Uninstall. Then for good measure, run AdwCleaner. Download AdwCleaner from here and save it to your desktop. Double click on the file you just downloaded to start AdwCleaner Run AdwCleaner by clicking on Scan Now When it has finished, leave everything that was found checked, (ticked), then click on Clean and Repair if it asks to reboot, allow the reboot on reboot, click on View Log File; please attach the content of the log to your next reply.
  14. Have you tried uninstalling all McAfee apps/programs?
  15. I've never used any... but I have a friend who likes a program called active presenter. It's for making online classes so it does screen capture and video.
