How to Schedule Boot / Turn On, Shutdown, Wake / Sleep on MacOS Ventura
by: Paul Horowitz Scheduling a Mac to boot, sleep, and shutdown, have been longstanding features in the Energy preference panel on Mac OS since the beginning of the operating system, so if you updated to macOS Ventura and now you’re wondering where those settings went, you aren’t alone. You can still schedule a Mac to turn on and shutdown on a schedule, but how it’s accomplished is different from before. ★★ Full Article ★★
Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362.10014 & 18362.10015 (19H2)
August 19, 2019 2:01 pm By [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/author/dona-sarkar/]Dona Sarkar[/url] and [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/author/brandonleblanc/]Brandon LeBlanc[/url] Hello Windows Insiders! Today we are releasing [b]19H2 Build 18362.10014[/b] and [b]Build 18362.10015[/b] to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. As a reminder, we are testing the ability to ship these updates with features turned off by default so that we can then turn them on via controlled feature rollouts. This helps us gain better feedback on overall build quality. A subset of Insiders in the Slow ring will have features turned off by default, and another subset will have them turned on by default. [b]This means not everyone in the Slow ring will see new features right away:[/b] [list] [*]IF you are on 19H2 Build 18362[b].10012[/b] – you will receive Build 18362.10014 with features turned OFF by default.

Hello, I'm new here and need help...
I think I have a virus, but the Webroot scan is not detecting anything. At least once a day, my laptop becomes possessed and does things like begins typing in all caps, highlights text, launches new internet pages in a separate window, etc. Does that sound like a virus? (My laptop did tip over once and took a tiny spill, so not sure if that could be the cause.) Please help. Thank you.
Sorry, this isn't a rumor or a myth (yet). It's a question and this seemed like the best area for it: I've searched, but I can't find a clear answer on which files get hashed and submitted to the cloud. Imagine a scenario where you receive a sensitive Word document or PDF--let's say it's the Pentagon Papers--as an email attachment. Does this file ever get hashed and submitted? If so, can Webroot be subpoenaed to reveal which accounts submitted that hash for inspection?

HELP! Website Search?
I all! Hurry! Can anyone help me please, I'm trying to search my website history for some very important content that was on a particular site to which I've forgotten the address. I had visited the site many times during May/June of 2012 but can't seem to find how to do it. Can the site history go back that far and how do I search? I've tried putting in a few key words but these search the whole website and not my history. Help, I need to find it fast!
Avoid tech support phone scams claimed to be from Microsoft
Hello Members! Avoid tech support phone scams Cybercriminals don't just send fraudulent email messages and set up fake websites. They might also call you on the telephone and claim to be from Microsoft. They might offer to help solve your computer problems or sell you a software license.

They might also then charge you to remove this software. [*]Take control of your computer remotely and adjust settings to leave your computer vulnerable. [*]Request credit card information so they can bill you for phony services. [*]Direct you to fraudulent websites and ask you to enter credit card and other personal or financial information there.

Windows 10 will be available late next year, preview coming tomorrow
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84NI5fjTfpQ[/video] [H1]Introducing Windows 10 - the best Windows yet [/H1] The next major version of Windows, Windows 10, will be available late next year. The new operating system [url=http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/30/6868695/microsoft-windows-10-announced-official]is being unveiled today[/url] at an event in San Francisco, where Microsoft announced its name and has begun detailing new features, including the return and makeover of the Start Menu, the introduction of multiple desktops, and a new universal search feature. Microsoft isn't hiding that, for mouse and keyboard users, this is a move back toward what Windows users are used to and away from the contentious changes in Windows 8. "It gives the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the elements of Windows 8," Windows chief Terry Myerson says. While most PC owners won't start using Windows 10 for a while, developers and enthusiasts can get started much sooner. Microsoft wi

Browsers: IE 9, Firefox, Chrome?
Was hoping to get a relatively quick response to browser preferences. I am currently using IE 9 but am not very satisfied with it. I have used Firefox and Chrome in the past, but don't want to go to the trouble of downloading and installing and setting up all the stuff if the newest versions aren't up to snuff. Do the great majority of peeps prefer one over the other? I am running Vista fully up-to-date on 3 units, XP SP-3 updated through the cut-off. I'll hang out for a bit and see what comes up here. I appreciate some "studied" responses. Please, I need considered opinions and facts, not random input from less experienced users, though I appreciate those thoughts too! Please understand that expediency is my aim not offending members. Ch 4 t
Problem with my HP Deskjet 1050 printer
Hi, Pleeeese could you help me out with this printer of mine! It just wont print. I've been using it for a few months with no probs but since I changed the cartridges, apart from five or six pages from the web, it dosen't print anything, dead as a doornail. All the print jobs are queing but one is trying to delete and is stuck, it won't cancel. I've also noticed that next to it's name on the control panel, it has (Copy 1), is this OK? I've tried diagnostics which had corrected it for that one time but has made no overall difference. Can you help? It's an HP Deskjet 1050 J410 series.
3D Printing Could Save You Thousands of Dollars
Has the price of a 3D printer got you down? With printers ranging between $350 to $2,000 in price, many people scoff at the notion of buying something so seemingly esoteric. After all, what's the use in printing little toys, right? Well, think again. [url=http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/31/study-at-home-3-d-printing-could-save-consumers-thousands/?hpt=te_t1]A new study from Michigan Technological University[/url] shows that the average consumer can save between $294 to $1,926 by the time they print 20 typical household objects like showerheads, iPhone cases, and kitchen utensils. Taking the iPhone case as an example, you'd normally find that going for about $20 at an Apple store. The cost of printing your own? About 27 cents. That can really add up over time. After a mere 20 uses, you may even end up recouping the cost of the printer itself. And the next step? Profit. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.
Facebook’s Like Buttons Will Soon Track Your Web Browsing to Target Ads
By [url=http://www.technologyreview.com/contributor/tom-simonite/]Tom Simonite[/url] on September 16, 2015 Facebook’s ad targeting algorithms are about to get a new firehose of valuable and controversial personal data. Starting next month, the millions of Facebook “Like” and “Share” buttons that publishers have added to their pages and mobile apps will start funneling data on people’s Web browsing habits into the company’s ad targeting systems. After the change, the types of sites you visit could be used to tune ads shown to you inside Facebook’s social networking service, its photo-sharing service Instagram, and mobile apps that use Facebook’s ad network.

Solid-state drives lose data if left without power for just a few days
[i]Any users comments on this one?[/i] [b]Summary: Solid-state drives are great for performance, but data security must come first.[/b] [b]By [url=http://www.zdnet.com/meet-the-team/us/zack-whittaker/]Zack Whittaker[/url] for [url=http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/]Zero Day[/url] | May 9, 2015[/b] Storage. It's not a sexy topic. But everyone uses it in some way or another. You have iPhones, you have computers. Everyone knows how important a person's data is. But it doesn't just "disappear." Or does it? New research suggests that newer solid-state hard drives, which are faster and offer better performance, are vulnerable to an inherent flaw -- they lose data loss when they're left dormant in storage for periods of time where the temperature isn't properly regulated. The worrying factor is that the period of time can be weeks, months, but even in some circumstances -- just a few days. Solid-state drives are better than regular mechanical hard drives, whi
