Please mout the iso from within the windows. you don't need to burn it to a DVD.

I changed the subject. I downloaded the iso file but it is 4.6 GB and my DVD

Fanus,

The issue you're having sometimes occurs, and no one ever really
knows why (and I'm sure the actual underlying causes are myriad). What I
suggest is following these instructions:
<https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1RZiHlLVtXewYBgoSvJNm9_08hj1tALPK>
Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO
file

And if you want to be "very strict" with your machine during
that process, make sure it's not connected to the internet. When you have
the ISO file you already have all of the essential components needed to do
the repair install or feature update. If there are additional updates that
were put in place after Microsoft issued the ISO file then those will be
applied via the normal Windows Update process after you again establish
internet connectivity.

Hi Mike,
Thank you for your suggestions. I've been trying to do that al this time that I took before responding to you. Just for the record, I explained in my previous message that I was able to find the less secure applications check box and I did check with no positive result. Google keeps blocking my accounts from both outlook express and thunderbird. However, after your suggestions, I wasn't able to find that check box any more no matter what I did.
I have the same experience in windows 7 and 1-. Idon't what to do.
Thanks again.

Hi Duke,
 
Here you go:
In your Gmail account settings, have you enabled the use of less secure apps? If you were to create a new Gmail account today and tried to set the account
up in the Outlook desktop app for instance, it would be blocked until you allowed the use of less secure apps. As for the exact process, here are the steps
if you are using the basic html setting in the online Gmail interface:
 
1. Log into your Gmail inbox.
Note:  If you use the, Links List keystroke, Insert + F7, to find the links in steps 2,3 and 4 along with first navigation it'll make things go much faster.
 
2. Locate and press enter on the settings link.
 
3. Locate and press enter on the Google account link, and not Gmail account link.
 
4. Find the, Security link, and press enter. 
 
5. Navigate by heading using the letter, H, until you get to, heading level 2, Less Secure App Access.
 6. Now down arrow to find an, On link, to toggle on the use of less secure apps, it could also be a checkbox.
Note:  I'm not sure if there's a save settings button or not, but it wouldn't hurt to look.
 
Finished.
 
Again, the steps above apply if you are using basic html in the web interface of your Gmail account. If you are not, I’m sure you could Google the steps
otherwise.

Hi guys,
I have encountered a problem lately. I have outlook express on my
windows 7 laptop that I have been using until a bout a couple weeks when
I started using my desktop which also has windows 7 but with mozella
thunderbird. Being a newby in thunderbird, thereare certain things that
i do with outlook express that I don't how to carry them out in
thunderbird. So, yesterday I went back to my laptop to do those tasks in
outlook express only to find out that google is blocking me from
accessing my account stating that it does not allow a less secure third
party application to access my account. I actually have two mail
accounts. the main one which I have configured on both my laptop/outlok
express  and desktop/thunderbird has no issues. my second account which
is only configured on my laptop/outlook express  is the one being
blocked now. I tried to configure it in thunderbird on my desktop. The
same issue persisted. It was blocked due a less secure third party email
client. I also tried to tell google to accept less secure applications,
but to no avail. Any Ideas please?
Thanks in advance

Your information, if it was accurate at one time, and I don't know if it was, isn't now. This article discusses questions you raise about reliability better than I can.
https://www.contegix.com/blog/do-solid-state-drives-fail-more-often-hard-disks

Regarding your discussion of mechanical disks often making sounds indicating impending failure, wile this is true some of the time, relying on such indications is just asking to lose data. At times, disks make sounds after they fail, at times they make no sounds indicating impending failure.

You should have anything you want to lose backed up, indications of disk failure or not. If you don't want to reinstall everything, you should have the system backed up as well as all your data files, such as music, pictures, documents, etc. It makes no more sense to rely on possible indications of failure of a mechanical drive before doing this then to wait for an SSD to fail. The same backup precautions should be taken with either kind of drive.

Yes, there are advantages to an SSD. But the dirty little secret that nobody likes to talk about is that an SSD may not last as long as an HD. This is because its memory cells tend to wear out over time with repeated read/write cycles, which could cause an SSD to suddenly fail without prior warning. At least a mechanical HD usually provides some audible indicationof impending failure. If you are considering an SSD, purchase a computer with an SSD of at least 256 GB that will have enough memory cells to minimize the possibility of failure. The more memory cells an SSD has, the more vacant cells are available for storage if one of them fails, and the more reliable it is likely to be.

Hi Gerald,

What makes it worse is that manufacturerers are using more layered nand flash to make drives cheaper, which reduces endurance.  Like the samsung QVO series versus the evo. But if you get a 512/1tb mlc or TLC drive, it is unlikely to be an issue. My newly purchased 970 plus for example has a rated endurance of 600 tb. And you can monitor  SSD relyability via tools like crystal disk info which display smart data. When ware leveling reaches 0%, you can replace it. I have used this 120 gb samsung for almst 5 years, and I haven't had to do this.

Re: new computer

Brian,

I would respectfully disagree. There is an enormous casm between the forth gen, vs 11th gen which are available now. It isn't just a couple generations. Not only that, if you had read of the lab vulnerabilities, spectre and meltdown, and all the dozens of  other speculative execution vulnerabilities after that that got discovered, you will know that intel has been pumping out microcode updates like a machine. As a result, these updates have utterly trashed older processors, ones produced before skylake especially. I/O performance is destroyed, and  from what I can tell at least 70% and up performance losses exist. You can disable these fixes with the registry, to get all of this back,  but  a lag still remains. My i5 4200M laptop processor used to be ok, not good by any stretch, but ok. I could multitask when CPU intensive tasks ran. But now this is a distant dream, and large apps and websites cause lag on this, and microcode updates that can't be reverted are the cause. So if nothing else, I would suggest that the OP   buy a current machine, not only because of the enormous arcetechtural difference between haswell and current processors,  but also because  of the constant new vulnerabilities that are being found and the enormous performance impact these have.  In fact, I would suggest getting an AMD machine to stop this, and avoid a bulk of speculative execution vulnerabilities.

An i7, of any vintage, is likely to be not only adequate, but way more than is needed, for home users.  WiFi is only as fast as its slowest link, so depending on what WiFi router you have (and if you're using it), it may make no difference.  RAM frequency, meh.

One must match tool to task, and there are a lot of ancient machines that are still way, way more than adequate for many common uses.  Processing power has far outstripped most users' (including business users') ability to come anywhere near to exploiting it all.

The idea that only the latest and greatest is good is patently false.

Hello Brian

Thanks so much. The link in the document  rerouted me to the latest windows 10 media creation tool but I suppose that is ok to install that following the directions in the document you gave.

Yes, my tower  computer takes up more room on its side, but I have my printer sitting on the tower.

I’ve been doing this for at  least 2 or 3 years with  no problem.

Jerry,

 

You are aware that this computer is not the tower type that sits on the floor, usually, but it's the desktop type that takes a lot of space on a flat service of choice.  Just thought I'd mention it just in case you didn't notice the dimensions particulars.

It depends on the price.

I can’t tell by the number, what generation of * core 7 processor?

It says ddr3 ram;  ddr4 has been in use for many years now.

I would  expect a new computer  to have a s s d   drive of some sort.

I would definitely look around and see what is available for the same money.

Hi Monty,
 
The only thing that would bother me about laying a tower style computer on its side is the fact that the sides of the tower is where the computer gets a lot of ventilation for cooling purposes.  But, if you're drawing enough cool air through the front and back then I guess that wouldn't be a worry since its been working well for you.

Brian,
 
Thank you for that information.  I didn't know that they are now made to lay flat or stand-up.  I ran into a couple of really nice computers that I passed on because they were only described as, desktops, without any information if they could be stood on their side or not.

Mike, this particular model can be oriented either horizontally or vertically.  There seem to be a lot of SFF models that do this.  They put "hooks" on the optical media tray that cradle the CD/DVD on the side that's toward the floor.

Jaws speaking selected text

Teri McElroy
 

Hi

I'm running Jaws 2020 on a windows 10 laptop with Office 365.

For some reason, Jaws isn't speaking text when I select words using shift control and the  arrows anymore. I've done a search but can't find any settings I need to change to make this happen. When I ran Jaws and Word on my old windows 10 laptop selected text was announced when shift control and an arrow was pressed. This is just happening in word and not my mail program. So there must be a setting somewhere I need to tweak. Can someone help please?

Tia.
