Thanks Heather, in that case I probably should call speak to me and ask if I'll be able to charge my 5s with the version that talks because that's my main reason for wanting it.

Hi All,

 

I have found an item on the speak to me catalog website that says it will charge up to 3 devices at once, and I was wondering if anybody has one and knows if it would be able to charge my Victor reader stream as well as my iPhone.

The Ultimate Solution for Power Anxiety! myCharge is a rechargeable 6000mAh battery pack that will charge the average smartphone or iPad or tablet four times. What makes myCharge Unique?

Re: running a computer without antivirus?

Walt Smith
 

My opinion (for what it’s worth) is that anyone who thinks that they can protect their system by just scanning e-mail attachments is simply begging for trouble. I’ve used NOD32 from Eset for years and it absolutely does not slow down my computer. I did try Trend Micro and it was a disaster – not only slowed my system to a crawl, but was completely unfriendly with access software. NOD32 does so much above and beyond scanning incoming e-mail that I won’t take time here to try to cover everything. Bear in mind that attachments and links contained in e-mail messages that lead you to sites that load garbage on your system are only the most obvious and easiest-to-defend-against threats.

Hi All,

 

I know 2 people, a friend of mine who is a computer trainer and also the guy who repairs my computers for me, who have mentioned to me that they don't have an antivirus program running on their computers at all time, and at least in the case of my friend who does this he says that he just scans any files that he receives as attachments before he opens them.

 

In the case of the guy who repairs my computer he says that antivirus programs just slow his computer down so much, and there are so many viruses out there now that the antivirus programs don't even detect and that's the reason he doesn't bother with antivirus anymore, and I just wondered what the people in the know on this list think.  I have malware bytes pro that I keep updated, so is there a need for an antivirus program?  I'm currently running the free version of avast btw.

 

Oh and another thing, I'm only running windows 7 and it sounds like my computer guy might be running windows 10 because he did say that there's something built into windows 10 that kind of acts like an antivirus.

Re: running a computer without antivirus?

I don't run background antivirus scanners, but I wouldn't recommend it for the average user.  Basically, if you have to ask these questions, then you should probably be running antivirus software.
 
Windows 10 includes Windows Defender by default which is just MSE renamed.

VPN stands for virtual private network. It not only protects you from hackers by encrypting the connection through a tunnel; it also lets you access georestricted sites. A good example is the BBC iPlayer TV and Radio live and on-demand service outside the UK possible with a UK-based VPN connection.

Re: Comcast app info please?

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I understand what you're saying but whether or not the app for whichever service in question is accessible you still must have account credentials in order to log in and use them. So if you're not in an area that comcast serves thus not having an account with them you wouldn't technically be able to use their apps for these purposes unless you were making use of the credentials of another customer.
Perhaps if you call Charter back and specifically ask for a supervisor or someone in customer retention or promotions you might get better results.

what brought this up is that I've reached the end of my promotional

I tried talking to one of their people and she just wouldn't budge an

Re: Outlook 2010 Interfacing

Vicki W
 

I am not sure about Outlook, but I know that with OE, under the accounts option, there is an advanced tab that gives you the option to check or uncheck leaving a copy of the messages on the server.

If this is unchecked, your server will not keep a copy of your deleted messages.

If I recall, it actually eliminates the messages as soon as they are downloaded to OE or Outlook.

Hopefully someone can give you an absolute answer.

Dear Groups:

I have a desktop PC running Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010/Outlook 2010
and JAWS 14. My email service is through SBC Global/Yahoo Mail.

In Outlook, I have folders for In Box, Sent Items, Junk Mail and Deleted
Items. When I log into Yahoo Mail, I have folders for In Box, Sent Items,
Spam and Trash Bin, all of which correspond to my Outlook folders.

Of course, when I delete emails from my In Box, Sent Items and Junk Mail, it
all goes into my Deleted Items folder, I then go to the Deleted Items
folder, select all and delete. Now everything is gone.

However, if I log into Yahoo Mail, everything I have deleted in Outlook is
still present in Yahoo Mail and I have to go through the process of deleting
the In Box, Sent Items and Spam into the Trash Bin, then delete them all
from the Trash Bin.

I am told that I can configure my Outlook 2010 settings with my Yahoo Mail
account such that, when I go through the deletion process in Outlook,
everything in Yahoo Mail is simultaneously deleted as well. Can anyone tell
me how to achieve this configuration?

Re: Comcast app info please?

Michael Mote
 

Hi Bill! I use my cable app all the time. It happens to be Charter
Spectrum. Before that I had another cable service. In both cases in order
to use the App, you had to have an account that you create on their
web-site. Somewhere along the way, you are asked for your account number.
Then, when you use the App, you just log on using the email and password
associated with that account, and it works that way. Hopefully this helps.

what brought this up is that I've reached the end of my promotional period on charter and they want me to pay $150 plus each month, and frankly, it's just not worth it.
I tried talking to one of their people and she just wouldn't budge an inch, however, what I'm prepared to do is to call back and tell them that they can take away my tv priveleges so I can get by with a cheaper amount as it were. Does that make any sense to you? I'm hoping that when they hear this that i will be able to get a different response from them. Do you think that that might be a possibility?
thanks,
Bill
