Q&A with CIPCUG: Round 5

DO You have a cell phone? GOOGLE this: stingray cell phone


Latest CIPCUG meeting

Toby Scott discusses the stingray concerns in this week’s 5th installment of Q&A with CIPCUG!

But first…This week’s questions are in order:

K. Edward Lynch: I have a folder full 38Gb of music video, 2 years of work, all the files look fine but can’t open any of them. I Tried various software but nothing… this happened after my upgrade to Windows 10. I lost two other hard drives but was able to recover files on those so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Lisa Toth:  Re Windows Live Mail:  When I have checked all my mail, it will still say I have some left, sometimes as many as 18 or 20. To see if this is true, I click on another inbox. If it is not true, the number disappears. Why is it showing I have mail when I don’t?

Sandra Denise:  If my computer is running slow does that mean that I need more memory or could I possibly have a virus?

Hazel Palache:  I would really like to know, with so many social media sites now, which one is best for business promotion and is it necessary to use snap chat in business, I get conflicting opinions on this. Thanks


Andy Toth:  Interesting thing happened while was using the MediaCoder wizard to set up MediaCoder for my use in Win 10. Edge was the default browser. The following popped up. Every trick I knew to close the browser failed. It locked the machine. Finally Power Off. I changed the default browser to IE and the wizard ran fine. I then converted back to Edge and the same thing happened. Anyone see this before?

I’m using Windows Live for my email. Lately, some places I’ve been getting mail from for years like Sunset Magazine and a recipe site, display a dialog box I have to make a yes or no to before I can read the message. It happens 3 times each time. All are a script error message on a specific line. Is there anything I can do about this?

I’ve almost given up on facebook on Firefox. Trying to post gives me a script error with the choice of stopping the script, debugging the script or continuing. Scrolling is slow and cumbersome. 

Will using another browser possibly solve this problem? If so, which do you recommend?
