    I basically agree with this. However, the latest Roku does support 4K and if you were streaming 4K video from a Plex server or similar, you'd probably need > 20Mbps. But 20Mbps should be ample for ...
  • My copy of Office 2000 is still going strong :-) If you install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack, it still works with documents produced by newer/current versions of Office too.
  • Ditto and it seems useful in that regard. My full scan took ~8 hours. It flagged some of the Nirsoft utilities as RiskWare consistent with some other scanners. Clean aside from that. I think that ...
  • This looks useful. Possibly invaluable if the detection rate turns out to be really good. Thanks Russell!
  • 1TB isn't too much data although you'll need to consider how much upload bandwidth you have available on your broadband connection. Even so, a single cloud provider isn't enough by itself IMO. Why not:
  • What are you currently using for backup? Hint: RAID is not backup. Not even close. RAID can provide some protection against a drive failure and that's about it.
  • When SSD's are shipped they include some spare space which is required for wear leveling and other tasks. It's not reported to the user. If you format the disk with additional unallocated space, ...
  • Search YouTube for this video: "How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus - Featuring John McAfee himself" WARNING: This is for entertainment only. Definitely not safe for work or the easily offended. But ...
  • I would try to identify the make and model of your computers WiFi adapter and then check for any available driver updates. WiFi driver bugs can certainly result in the symptoms you describe, and ...
  • That's not a shredder. THIS is a shredder:
  • It seems to apply the Current Monitor Profile if you have the default setup in Control Panel | Color Management. I just checked it here with Win 7 Pro and IrfanView 4.42. If the image doesn't ...
  • Don't do it! You can configure IrfanView to apply a color profile and it works. However, if you save the image, the saved copy will have that profile applied to it. Then, of course, the profile ...
  • One backup is not sufficient. You need AT LEAST 2, preferably more with one off-site. I have at least 4 copies of my most valuable data (fortunately quite small) and 3 of the less valuable and ...
  • Hard drives suffer from seek time delays (time required to move the heads in and out) and rotational latency (time for the disk to spin). Together these constitute access time which is likely to ...
  • Yeah, I've found a LOT of instances where the product reviews covered different (but similar) products. I'm also seeing LOTS of reviewers disclosing that they received free product in exchange for ...
  • HDD's store a magnetic charge. It doesn't last for ever and there are tons of variables impacting that. But we have a lot of experience and HDD's will store data for periods that exceed the ...
  • Don't use Quicken but I do buy TurboTax every year. The download version from Amazon works great for me. It's generally hard to beat that price. You can always burn the install onto a CD/DVD if ...
  • Not sure about your OS or which specific addon. Does this help?
  • I generally agree with this. An important variable to consider is backups. I keep everything required for the operation of the system on the SSD/C:/system drive. I make backups of that drive with ...
  • Replied in SSD & HDD
    I'd even consider replacing the laptop optical drive with a 2.5 inch drive caddy. Personally, I rarely use optical disks these days and I already have a $20 USB DVD drive for the rare occasions I ...
