Windows 7

If I didn’t know better,I’d say that Microsoft were trying to confuse us.

The approach for naming Windows appears to change with every release. Back when I first started using Windows we were running 3.11 which we then upgraded [...]

Secunia PSI

News was released this week regarding a potentially serious flaw present in Internet Explorer which potentially allows a hacker to gain control of a computer that has visited a website infected with malicious code. The scary thing about this particular bug is that the user doesn’t need to download or click anything to become infected [...]


We often receive blank DVD discs back that have been marked as being faulty due to the fact the customers machine refuses to write to them. After a little cross examination we almost always arrive at the same conclusion;the machine doesn’t actually have any software installed which would allow it to write to DVD [...]

Readers suggestions

Once again I’ll take the time off this week to help one of my readers take care of their computer woes.

I wonder if you could help,I am looking for some free software which “undeletes” pictures from an SD media card. I accidentally (believe it or [...]
