Q&A with CIPCUG: Session 73

Lisa Toth   What is a mobi file. I downloaded an ebook I had purchased. It came to file explorer in 3 formats, IE, pdf and .mobi I

know what to do with the pdf I have a place for ebooks in pdf.  What do I do with IE and .mobi?  How would I use them?

Sue Nethercott   When going to my website, I get sometimes “401 – Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.” errors. For example, I get a 401 if I put in the www, but I don’t if I go without it.  What can I fix on my web site to avoid the errors?

Ray Escobedo   I have a new 64 bit Windows 7 computer. I need to transfer my Windows Live Mail emails and the program from my old 32 bit Windows 7 computer to the new computer. I can’t find a Live Mail or Windows Live Essentials program on Google that will download. At the very least, I need to move my emails to the new computer. Hope you can help.

Lisa Toth   I am seriously thinking about the LG K20 phone. Any comments?

Lisa Toth   Can you talk about twinui? An organization I am a member of sent me a file. When I clicked the download button I saw the arrow in the right of my screen indicating the file was downloading. When I went to my downloads folder, it was not there.  Actually it said it was opening it via twinui. When I could not find the twinui file, I tried to save it. Cannot find the file. What am I missing?

Q&A with CIPCUG: Session 71

Kaspersky and the NSA

Jerry Schrum:   Does being on the “Dark Web” mean the New York Times is free to readers? and if yes, is it “legal” (whatever that means in today’s world)?

Lisa Toth:   Why is there occasionally a green letter in text on a web page?

Tony Pizza:   I was lax and opened this message from Skype, clicked on a “Notification” link, and got an ominous threat. With no further clicking, turned off power, then started up, ran a Defender scan, apparently the PC is OK. I neglected my own advice to always check where the link goes to.

Lisa Toth:   When I am on a page that I want to participate in and need a password, LastPass gives me the new pw and then asks me if I want to save the site. Other times it doesn’t and I have no idea what the pw was. I have to manually enter the site>  Why?

Lisa Toth:   Some of the sites I have saved in LastPass automatically log in and take me to the home page. Others I have to click at the user name then it is entered and then at the password to be logged in.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 67

more on equifax

Kathy Van Slyke   Does anyone know if scdkey.com is a legitimate site? Ads for them have appeared on various sites and some of their prices are low enough to be suspicious.

Lisa Toth   I have a Pinterest button, the last pass button and the ublock origin button in the upper right space next to the search cell in Firefox. Can’t remember what it is called. Can I put a one note button there too?

Lisa Toth   I no longer have the button on the task bar that has the three one note options for adding.  I haven’t been able to get things into One Note except by using the print function and choosing OneNote.
