  1. Yes. I even just reinstalled win 10 and it still does not work. We like the image that was used in the DIR of PP. It also allowed us to make changes to PDF and other files plus allowed scanning and print options not in many other programs.
  2. I have used PAPER PORT FOR YEARS. It has not worked good ever since win10 and the problems have gotten worse. Is there any software out there that is similar to PP.
  3. This is what I wondering if I should do. I think I will go that way to just be sure I hopefully get a clean install. Thanks.
  4. Thanks but I know about that setting and page. I was wondering about the programs on the D drive. Will win WIPE OUT BOTH DRIVES TO REINSTALL WIN 10. Or will they only wipe the C drive . I would like to start clean and do not want any info on the D drive that could be a problem later on after a clean win 10 install.
  5. Have been having to many problems with desk top. I have win 10 installed on c drive (250ssd) and most programs installed on a d drive (2 terr). Should I wipe the D drive first and then have win 10 reinstall on the c drive. I want a clean install. I used Belarc Advisor to copy product keys (hope fully).
  6. Both Norton's and McAfee offer VPN with there security soft wear. Can you use the VPN on smart TVs?
  7. I know this is silly but when I run Rufus do,I pick the DBAN file and install on the USB. Will the USB be boot able after the DBAN is installed? PS: Getting old has it's draw backs.
  8. I have d/l DBAN to USB and when i click on it a number of files come up and it will not install to USB. I tried to d/l to my h/d and then install to USB I get a number of files with ext of TXT,CAT,CFG,BIN,BZI. I have clicked on all of them and nothing happens. I am missing something.
  9. They are two old computers that My wife was given to use over time. One is so old that if will not run win 10(has not been used in a few years but she has to turn in). The other runs win 10 and crashes all the time or runs so SLOW . Wife used own computer a lot of times. Wife wants to gt any personnel info off . I was going to just reformat but would like to erase every ting for her peace of mind.
  10. Yes there is no problem in doing it.
  11. I want to wipe my company computer totally. What program can I either load in or load from CD that will enable me to totally wipe my computer. I do not care if win is totally wiped in doing so.Have to hand in old computers before I leave.
  12. I am running win 10. I have a program called PAPER PERT 14. For some reason to get it running I had to create another logon for my computer. Reinstalling it did not get the program running. The last word from tech support was create a new log on. Now by doing that all my programs are not visible. Meaning I would have to create all new short cuts. The new log on was created as a ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT. Is there a way to move all short cuts from one log on to another log on account. I use paper port 14 as my file cabinet and would like to continue to use it.
  13. I have a Asus Maximus VI (serial # E2moabo16677) mother aboard. How do you release the battery to change it?
  14. I have made a few complete backups of desktop. Desktop is about 7 years old. I plan to try and use backups. If this does not workout for some reason,I will try to reformat. I would like to install new solid state H/D(have SSHD 250GIG plus 2 TB H/D and not sure if H/D are getting old). How would I reinstall win 10. I did win 10 upgrade and not sure how to do the reformat and reinstall?
  15. I had to use a restore point to get computer back to the point that certain programs were working. Now I can not find any old restore points. After the last restore creation I did not crate a new restore point. So how do I find old points that the restore program does not show or allow you to do a older restore pint.
  16. All three are running win 10. The desk top and one laptop are in same work group WG123456 (just to name the WG). Or they where until last night, now I can not find work group on the desk top. I use to be able to at least save -open files using \\xxx.xxx.x.x but that does not even work any more. Now it wants network credentials.
  17. Is there a good site to pay some one to help set up a home network? I have tried a number of help sites but unable to set up home network. Running win 10, work groups are suppose to be easy.
  18. Can I make a static IP address for the remote cameras so I can view them. FIOS a few times a year some reason changes the IP address for the cameras. WHY, not really sure? Can I and if so how can I do this?
  19. Some times there are updates to the new TV. With the Fire stick you d/l app to see different programs. With the broken fire stick yu go and d/l programs from different web sites to the TV. Can any of these d/l effect the home computers. They are being d/l through your router and now could they infect your system other than the TV.
  20. When you give the router pass word to the fire stick ,TV or broken fire stick can it d/l stuff into your computer through the router?
  21. Running win 10 on desktop and laptop. They both see media devices on each other machine. They DO NOT SEE FILES. I am able to go to file explore and type in \\xxxxx\d\xx and get the files (just read I could do this). How can I get the computers to be seen on the network in the file explore. Not sure if I have work group or home group on either machine.
  22. Having trouble with home group in win 10. In -VIEW YOUR NETWORK PROPERTIES --I see that in connectivity IPV4/IPV6 is DISCONNECTED in the laptop. In the laptop wi-fi properties TCP/IPV4 and TCP/IPV6 are both checked. How do I turn on the IPV4 AND IPV6 so that maybe home group will work?
  23. I have a laptop and desktop. In the laptop I created a home group and have the password from the laptop. I went to the desktop top and it said it sees a home group and asked if I would like to join. I put in the laptop password but after a few minutes I am told the desk top cannot see home group. How to fix? What is the difference between work group and home group plus which is easier to use.?
  24. My desk top is win 8.1 and the laptop is win 10.I finally got the laptop to see the files on the desktop that I wanted.But the desktop can not access the laptop.I said share on the laptop and share on the desktop.I used the password from desktop and used it so I am on the same group in the laptop. In network and sharing center/media streaming options, I see the laptop. When I try to click on the network, I see the laptop but the desk top will not access.It says --box pops up-and says win cannot access \\laptop,check spelling of the name.
  25. Thanks for the reply.I was going to try the link that you sent but I did not like the warning about back up all data on the disk.The problem is I could not get to it to copy.Time passes and last backup was1 year ago. I was able to get to the command prompt (with nortons ghost) but did not remember my dos commands. After reading the old dos book,I was able to move around a little.I finally got down to windows/pss dir.Typed in boot.ini backup and guess what happen.The boot.ini backup came up in notepad,was I really gland,was not sure what or how I was going to change it in dos.I saved as boot.ini backup2 and then changed it to boot.ini and finally saved it to the c drive. The computer is up and running .I still believe there is some thing wrong so after a complete backup,I will restore to about a year ago.
