  • What I would suggest for someone like your sister, who keeps installing malware, is to make her a standard user on the PC. To do this make a new user account on the computer for her. When you ...
  • Don't count on ever getting full Win11 support on that CPU. You can install Win11 manually, as long as you have a TPM 2.0. The unsupported CPU will work just fine for now. But why bother? Win10 ...
  • Argghh! That is so frustrating. Always test on both sides of the cable, and the cable itself. I've had all three issues at some point in the past. Dead monitor, one time a smoking monitor, dead ...
  • I've had 3268-4k monitor for about 3 years and it's excellent. I do a lot of photo processing on in and have no complaints. The specs are the same between the 32 and 27 inch models. If there are ...
  • Replied in thanks all
    If your mouse is jerky and unusable try to clean it and replace the batteries. If it's wireless make sure that the USB dongle (if it uses one) has a clear line of sight to the mouse. Both of these ...
  • If an app is actually slowing down your computer while not doing anything you want, the answer is simple: Uninstall the application. If what you are complaining about are various background ...
  • Why are you using Windows Pro sku if you are not using AAD or MSA? What value do you get from it over Home?
  • You are far more secure with the combination of TPM, Bitlocker, Password-less, and 2FA. With Windows 11 Microsoft is putting a priority on security features. This new requirement seems consistent ...
  • You should do some more research on your parts list. In USD you can get an AMD 5600G cpu which contains a decent GPU for $219 on NewEgg.com. This will blow away what you are looking at for less ...
  • Yes, nothing in the house gets tripped up when the power goes out. My desktop PC is always on and never skips a beat. One entire breaker panel is wired to the battery, then external power. I have ...
  • My UPS is a Tesla Powerwall. But it powers the entire house, not just the computer!
  • If you are upset that Windows 11 is slowly phasing out the Control Panel, I can't imagine your surprise and disappointment when you discover that MacOS doesn't have a Windows Control Panel at ...
  • Edge recently added a feature that allows you to favor security over performance by turning off the JIT engine on most sites. Perhaps you turned it on? " Enhance your security on the web: Turn on ...
  • That's a pretty aggressive and confident reply coming from somebody asking a lot of questions about basic issues. This is as good an example of the Dunning-Kruger effect I've ever seen. You might ...
  • If you read the articles from reliable sources (Puget Systems, Anandtech, etc) you will learn that the performance differences between Win10 and Win11 are minimal. We are talking about single ...
  • This may be my favorite and most used feature in Windows 11. But I only use it on my laptop where screen space is more limited than on the big dual monitors on my desktop.
  • Replied in Windows 11.
    Two situations: 1) Upgrading existing PC to Win11 - Visual refresh 2) New Win11 based PC - Visual refresh and improved default security Beyond that Win11 will have slightly better performance on ...
  • The touchpad is as good as any I've used, and it's a lot bigger than what previous Surface systems had.
  • It really is a great computer. I got it with 32GB ram and a lot of storage, so it was about $2600.  I had doubts about the 14" screen vs a 15" on my previous Surface Book 2. But the screen is ...
  • Replied in Touché
    This is just not correct. No such ridiculous contortions are required. If you boot from media and start a clean install of Windows, it is in fact clean. Now it may sync settings from the Cloud ...
