  • Oh sure, take the easy way.   :-)  Come to think about it that's what worked for me.
  • Or just do a System Restore.
  • Well, I have downloaded all MS updates to my OS 7 desktop and have just run Win. Defender. Perhaps just dumb luck or is everyone else just smart unlucky? ;-)
  • Recent Canon (e-store) ad had refurbished SX50hs for $159.99. Now that would be a good deal as many of their refubs are usually damaged box items.
  • As good as the old S series was it is time to move on.  If you can get a new SX50 that would be a good move as they are still available on sale.  Personally I find the SX60 far too pricy but I ...
  • Sky, is there a reason you don't want the upgrade?  As I understand it 8.1 is actually very good and 8 has been, well, cursed.  My wife's new Dell come with 8.1 and she thinks it's great. I too ...
  • I find it very hard to understand why so many go to great lengths to avoid Picasa.  It's a Google freebie and it works very well.  It may be beneath some to use a basic system but it has never ...
  • Replied in I have
    Far and away too much complication and interaction between OSs, browsers and a multitude of 'ad-ons'.  Conflicts are bound to happen.  That's why I am very reluctant to "try" anything that could ...
  • I had an S2is for several years and found it to be an ideal travel cam.  Perhaps not quite up to todays SZs but its small size more than made up any difference.  Like Jerry I had an anodized ...
  • Replied in Yep
    Nope.  I do however manually install any and all updates.  Also I do them on Wednesday so that probably is the reason they seem to go well.  And I do mirror backups which has never been used in ...
  • Just run the 12 MS updates that took about 5 minutes to download and install.  These do more than keep the system safe from hackers.  I have never had a known problem with 'important' and ...
  • You seem to have the organization down quite well with folders added by year and labeled as to similar activity or type. (eg, 2014- Around Home) I download from camera into Windows Photo Gallery ...
  • Not here.  With Chrome the 'loading' little wheel goes round and round but after several minutes, nothing.  This is set on loading from a computer file.  My Win. IE browser is worse in that I can ...
  • Replied in Monicakm
    Monica, my wife has much the same condition as you describe.  For several years she has been getting spinal injections under a fluoroscope which delivers the injection to the right spot.  It's ...
  • Very nice, as usual Ken.  More proof the 60 can cut it.
  • Surely goes a long way in countering the negativity re the SX60hs' IQ.  It just proves that this camera in the right hands can come through very well indeed.  Now, if the price comes down to earth ...
  • I too run into this and can only blame a few things.  ISP, their modum, my router or my ^%$&# PC. When this happens I curse them all but usually rebooting the router seems to work best.  It takes ...
  • Yossid, I have used the SX40hs for a few years and have never noticed a 'shutter lag' in normal mode shooting. I don't do 'continuous (sports) mode' as never found it useful. It seems to take ...
  • My favorite is Malwarebyte.  Easy to load and use and no over the top bugging to upgrade.  The free version seems adequate for virus checking.  I tried adwcleaner on a 30 day trial but today I ...
  • Jim, I appreciate your detailed response and always give most advice a try. My Dell desktop system is not used for a great deal of internet browsing except for DPR, a few other 'safe' sites and of ...
