  1. Bogus Emails

    Seems after weeks I can finally post here from the dinosaur iPad. Hmm... David, might it be a difference in settings on your Vista email client?
  2. Days under the sun and rain.

    Our best wishes and thoughts to you and yours. When in hospital, they might provide a nicotine patch as they did me several times, helps take the edge off.

    Glad you're home safe & sound after that start! Good pix!
  4. Malwarebytes, Free Version

    You're very welcome Webweaver, hopefully the info was of help.
  5. Malwarebytes, Free Version

    It's recommended from a security standpoint as they are both complimentary rather than conflicting. Each looks for different threats. Even the Malwarebytes Premium with real-time protection is designed to work side by side with an active antivirus. This is, I suspect, true with Windows Defender as well, but am not familiar with that product. Bear in mind that the Malwarebytes free is only for scanning and removal after an infection. I gave up Windows when the last XP computer died here, but another layer of protection I always had was SpywareBlaster. This is totally passive (free version required periodic manual updating) that simply inserts certain entries in the Windows registry to prevent infection from malicious sites, it has no scanning engine. I just checked and it's compatible with Win. 10. You're probably fine without it, but I always installed it on the XP computers since it used no resources at all. https://www.brightfort.com/spywareblaster.html
  6. Malwarebytes, Free Version

    This is the most current comment from another site that may help explain: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/639236/free-version-of-malwarebytes/#entry4174818
  7. Not going to vote as we're watching Season 1 on DVD Netflix. It's okay, but to see another few seasons after, just not sure. Our favorites was the older Dexter, and we loved Breaking Bad.
  8. That was very interesting!
  9. [May 2017] Could you live on a vegan diet?

    Voted almost, I did in my late 20's, influenced by a girlfriend. Did some heavy building on a home by Yosemite, lost some weight, got strong, ate dairy (difference between vegaterian & vegan), used herbs (ginseng, fo-ti-tieng, gotu-kola and others) from a wholesale herbalist friend. Moved back and another girlfriend stir-fried some meat and stuff in a wok. Turned young malleable me back to a carnivore. Today? I eat what I want, heart's fine and never had a problem with weight. Flavor is too important.
  10. From the age of what? 5-6 maybe 7, I couldn't even eat cereal without reading the box. Diane and I are bookworms, not Kindle worms. We both grew up the same (didn't meet till we were 40). Voracious readers we are. I feel sorry for those who simply don't enjoy reading. Unlike TV, movies, etc., books, in any way, shape or fashion (regardless of the paper vs. electronic version) stimulates imagination, be it visual or intellectual.
  11. And the Winner Is?

    I don't see a picture posted of a winner. If it was a kids customized red wagon, this might do...
  12. 2-16-17 Shot of the DAY

    Every summer growing up, we'd see Yosemite's Glacier Point firefall, a tradition that went on for close to 100 years. Horsetail Fall is reminiscent of that. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yosemite_Firefall
  13. Comcast Mail Problem

    Glad you're up and running again! Having gone through similar, it usually takes just one knowledgable person who can finally resolve things.
  14. Comcast Mail Problem

    That's it, I'm contacting the CEO of Comcast, Brian Roberts to personally resolve your problem! Oops, sorry Fran, just woke up from a nap. :(
