Lisa Toth
   duplicate files finder you mentioned in an answer to finding duplicate files. I went out to the site as my computer is loaded with such things. It doesn’t mention windows 10 at all. Are you using it on that platform?

Rosalie Sherbrooke  Can anyone recommend a program that will eliminate the duplicate photos/files on my computer?

John Weigle   The Intel Discovery Tool tells me:  “Based on the version of the ME, the system is Vulnerable” and refers me to two documents that are not terribly helpful to me. What should I do to get it fixed, or do I have to wait for Intel to come up with a solution for the motherboard and the chip?

Lisa Toth   I am considering the purchase of a Fitbit device. Some of the devices offer certain options that require bluetooth LE to work. How can I figure out if my laptop (Toshiba win 10 has this capability?

News Item:  Windows 10 Edge, IE: We’re now blocking sites signed with SHA-1 certs, says Microsoft

News Item:  WannaCry Cryptovirus (actually a worm) is dormant for now.  Why?  And will it be back?

Bill Hinds:  When I try to use Acronis Disk Director, I get message that I’m using a Demo, and it does not work. I got this disk from a raffle at a CIPCUG meeting and it worked before I added a new Solid State drive to my system

Orv Beach:   Got a Netgear router? You’ll want to update the firmware if you haven’t done it in a while.

Sandy Tsutsui-Trujillo:   Would you provide information on online tax filing and recommendations on how to protect ourselves…I assume we know the standard antivirus, malware. Etc

Lisa Toth:  Every once in awhile, my phone screen gets the dreaded gray screen. I have restarted it to get my screen back sometimes just pressing the power button fixes it. I have a windows phone. A Lumia.

Bunny Vreeland:   Regarding an article that said anyone could find out anything about you:  Is it true?  How much information about us is out there?

Lisa Toth: I have updated adobe flash many times but I still have trouble watching things I trust. Could this be a setting in Firefox?

Bunny Vreeland:   How did you learn so much about computers? How does someone learn how to be a WebMaster in today’s world? And, how can we keep up with all the changes and upgrades?
