A comment from Barb
Once again I have Darcy to thank for fixing the mess I made of Thunderbird. Cloudeight's unattended direct sessions run so smoothly, as does the Senior Pass. Computer repair doesn't come easier or more successfully than by requesting a "fix" from the unbeatable team of E.B. and T.C. I write from experience.

A comment from Ellen
Hi, I want to thank TC for checking my new Windows 10 computer and installing Emsisoft for me. As usual, he was funny, professional and he did an amazing job! Thanks to both TC and Darcy for all the help and support you've given me over the years. Ellen

A comment from Roger
Just to thank Darcy for her time, patience and expertise this afternoon in getting my computer back in shape. As usual she did an amazing and professional job. Thank you again, Roger

A comment from Bobbie
I can't seem to find the right words to express my thanks to both TC and Darcy for being there to help with the different problems I've had with my 2 Windows 10 computers. TC again went way out of his way to fix some very serious problems with my laptop. He was professional, friendly, and sometimes made me laugh. Thanks so much. Bobbie.

A comment from Sharon
It's you two who are the best! I’ve used your service several times with great results and will continue to use it when needed. I absolutely loved your stationeries when I got my first computer and use some now with Thunderbird. I hope you’ll be around for a long, long time. I’ve recommended you to many people. Some take my advice, some don’t. I’m on my way now to make a donation. I truly wish it could be more! Bless you both

A big Cloudeight "Thank you!" to  Barb, Ellen, Roger, Bobbie, Sharon and everyone who took time out to write to us. We appreciate your kind words and your support very much! EB & TC.

After a Windows Update, Delores has problems with both Chrome and Office 2016
Windows recently updated and now I have major problems with Chrome and Microsoft Office. Chrome freezes and opens very slowly.

After the update, MS Office is not running right. Word starts then shuts down and Outlook takes forever to open. It was not like this before the update.

Is there anything I can do? I waited to long to go back to the previous version of Windows. Please help.

Our Answer
Hi Delores. It's difficult to tell from the information you give us here to tell exactly what's going on, so we're going to give you some quick and easy fixes and hope that they solve your problems.

Let's work on Chrome first. In the following tutorial,  you'll find 2 ways to fix Chrome. Usually just a quick reset will do the trick; if not we show you how to remove Chrome completely and reinstall it. To learn how to do this the right way, see our tutorial here.

If the problems with MS Office are minor - and with MS Office minor problems can seem mighty big - try repairing Microsoft Office. It doesn't take long and it's easy to do. See our tutorial on how to repair Microsoft Office here.

Let us know if this helps you, Delores.

Clint wants to know about Slimware Utilities
All of a sudden I keep getting popups from something called Slimware Utilities telling me to update my drivers. I just ignore it, but it's getting annoying. Right now I'm not having any problems with my computer other than this popup. What is Slimware Utilities? Is it any good? Should I remove it? Thanks! Clint.

Our answer
Hi Clint. Slimware Utilities is scamware which is installed as a standalone program or, most often, coms bundled with other software. You should definitely uninstall. Driver updater programs are one of the most useless and harmful applications you can install on your computer. They can cause major problems requiring repair and possibly even requiring a reset or reinstallation of Windows. Unnecessarily updating drivers, especially video drivers, is one of the biggest causes of major Window problems.

When you uninstall it, it may find it listed as one or more of the following:

DriverUpdate
Driver Updater
Slimware Utilities

Make sure you uninstall them all. We suggest you use an uninstaller like Geek Uninstaller (free) or HiBit Uninstaller (free) to completely remove Slimware Utilities.

Ruth wants to know how to clear browser history in Microsoft Edge
I am currently using Edge on my computer and just getting use to it. I like Edge but I can't figure out how to clear history, cookies, etc. Can you show me an easy way to do it? Thanks so much!

Our answer
Hi Ruth. It's easier than pi! Open Edge, press CTRL + H. When the History dialog appears, click "Clear history":

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium
The "Clear browsing data" dialog will appear. Select the items you want to clear. We suggest you don't clear passwords if you save them in Edge. After you've selected what you want to clear, just click on the "Clear" button.
Cloudeight InfoAve Premium

If you want Edge to clear your history automatically every time you close it, turn on the switch under "Always clear this when I close the browser".

Hope this helps you, Ruth!

Rita is concerned about a black box that covers each letter as she types
I am concerned about a small black box that covers each letter as I type in my password to get on the internet. I didn't have this until I followed your instructions to enlarge my curser. I don't know if the box has something to do with that or not, but seeing that box there bothers me. Please let me know what you think.

I have been with you since the early nineties and totally trust your opinion. Thank you for all the help you have given me over the years. Rita J.

Our answer
Hi Rita. Thanks!

 Indeed changing your cursor size (width) and color affects all pointers and cursors on your Windows user account. If it bothers you when you sign in then you'll need to go back to Settings > Ease of Access > Cursor & pointer size, and change the mouse pointer so it's narrower and, if necessary, change the color.

It appears you've set your cursor at its thickest width and that can be annoying as it can cover more than one letter or space at a time.

So, if it bothers you, I suggest change the thickness of the cursor/mouse pointer. Keep in mind you may have to restart you computer to see changes on the log in screen.

I hope this helps you, Rita.

Ken hears clicking noises and wonders what they might mean
I have a clicking noise in my computer . It not all the time only occasional but very annoying. Sometimes it will last long enough I have to turn my computer off. I have tried every thing I know to even resetting windows without any apps left . Can you give me any idea to what I can do. I have a Acer desktop all in one. Ken.

Our answer
Hi Ken. Sometimes a clicking noise can indicate a cooling fan problem, but generally clicking noises indicate a hard drive that is beginning to fail; Windows itself does not have any "clicking" noises as part of it's audible warning library. In the unlikely event that it's a cooling fan failing, you'll start having problems with your computer shutting down randomly because of overheating.

If your hard drive is failing, the clicking noises will get more frequent and louder as the hard drive gets closer to failing completely. We have seen hard drives less than a year old fail, but normally hard drives generally last more than five years. Right now would be an excellent time to backup your important files, just in case.

Without being able to hear the clicking sound, we are only just guessing, but it's not a normal Windows sound.

Irwin wants more information about our Cloudeight Direct Unattended Support
I have purchased a SeniorPass. My question is this: To use your 'Unattended Support', I have a pass word ,but as I am the only one using this computer and I would just as soon do away with the need to enter a password. Would this be easier for you to service my computer as unattended?. Regards Irwin T.

Our answer
Hi Irwin. We recommend you us a password to log into Windows for security. A password doesn't affect our ability to help you with your computer using our Unattended Support option.

Unattended is something we set up with you- it takes just a couple of minutes to set it up. You enter your password once and it's encrypted and saved. You, or anyone, who has one of our annual service plans like Season Ticket or SeniorPass, can request that we set up Unattended Support for them at any time.

After Unattended support is set up, when you want us to fix your computer, just email us, tell us what you need us to work on/fix. We will ask you to leave your computer turned on when you go to bed. Then we will be able to connect during your night time there in Australia.

Unattended Support is great for anyone with a Cloudeight Direct Computer Care annual plan, because it  allows us to provide help and computer repairs more quickly.

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium -Tips & Tricks

The Tools You Need to Uninstall Popular Antivirus/Security Software
Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (all versions)

Most security software companies will tell you it’s as easy as using Control Panel/Programs/Uninstall a program to remove their antivirus/security software. That’s what they’d like you to believe, but the truth is that if you uninstall most security software using Control Panel, you’ll end up with a lot of leftovers and even running services you don’t need or want.

We’ve compiled a list of programs offered by the security software companies that will help you completely remove antivirus/security software from your computer.

Avast Removal Tool
Note: Avast claims you must run this in safe mode, but we’ve successfully uninstall Avast from many computers just running it in normal Windows.

AVG Removal Tool

Avira Removal Tool

BitDefender

Kaspersky Removal Tool

McAfee Removal Tool
Removes most McAfee security products

Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool
Removes most Norton Security products.

Note: This is called the Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool and that’s just what it will do if you’re not careful :It will remove Norton and reinstall Norton, unless you do this:

1. Double-click the NRnR icon. Read the license agreement, and click Agree.

2. Click Advanced Options.

3. Click Remove Only.

4. Click Remove.

5. Click Restart Now.

Panda Removal Tool

Trend Micro Removal Tool

Vipre Removal Tool

Thinking about changing your security software?

We use and recommend Emsisoft. When you purchase an Emsisoft license from this page, we’ll remove your old security software and set up Emsisoft correctly – all for the price of the Emsisoft license.

Our 10 Most Valuable Windows 10 Windows Key Shortcuts
Windows 10 (version 1703 and newer)

Everyone uses their computers in different ways. We’re shortcut fans; anything that saves time is welcome. If you’re not using Windows Key shortcuts you’re missing out. Windows Key shortcuts can save you time, but only if you use them.

We put our heads together this morning to come up with a list of what we think are the ten most valuable and useful Windows Key shortcuts. These are the Windows Key shortcuts we use most often, and we hope you find these shortcuts useful too!

Windows Key + E Opens File Explorer
Windows Key + i  Opens Windows 10 Settings
Windows Key + L  Locks the PC and allows you to switch accounts (works only on computer with more than one user account.
Windows Key + D Shows the Windows Desktop
Windows Key + U Opens Ease of Access Center
Windows Key + X Opens the Start button Right-click Menu
Windows Key + Q Opens Cortana (Taskbar search)
Windows Key + W Opens Windows 10 Workspace (Sticky Notes, Sketchpad, Screen Sketch)
Windows Key + R Opens a Run dialog
Windows Key + . Windows Key plus the period key opens the Windows 10 Emoji pad.

Using Windows Key shortcuts is a great way to save time. Do you use Windows Key shortcuts as much as we do?

Windows 10: Local Accounts vs. Microsoft Accounts
Windows 10 (all versions)

What is a Local Account?

If you’ve ever signed into a Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer, then you’ve already used a local account.

A local account is just a name for an account you use to access your computer. Local accounts work only on one computer.

Benefits of using a local account:

More secure: Each local account has its own password.

Private: Nothing is automatically stored on Microsoft servers.

No Internet connection required . You don’t need to be connected to the Internet to log in to your PC.

You can use whatever log in name you want: You’re not restricted do a Microsoft account address.

Bypass the Password: You can bypass the password screen: If you’re using a local account you can choose to bypass the login screen and log in to Windows without a password. (NOT RECOMMENDED.)

A local account is what you used on Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. You’ll be able to log in, change your settings, install software, and keep your user account separate from others user accounts on the computer.

Disadvantages of using a Local Account on Windows 10

Lost your password? Too bad! If you lose your password and you don’t have a password recovery disk, you’re out of luck unless you have a password reset disk (USB flash drive).

A number of Windows 10 features will not be available or they’ll be harder to access: You’ll miss out on a number of Windows 10 features that are available only to those who log in to Windows 10 with a Microsoft Account.

What is a Microsoft Account?

A Microsoft Account is an account you sign in to using a Microsoft email address (@hotmail.com, @live.ca, @live.com, @outlook.com, @msn.com) and password. Let’s say the Microsoft address you want to use to log in to your Windows 10 PC is olivertwists18x @outlook.com, and your password is 0U812USillyG00S3. Then your Windows 10 username would be olivertwist18x @hotmail.com and your Windows 10 password would be 0U812USillyG00S3.

Once you’re signed in with your Microsoft account, you can use Microsoft products such as Skype, Office Online, OneDrive, the Microsoft Store, etc. and you won’t need to sign in manually every time you want to use them.

Using a Microsoft Account automatically gives you easier access to all of Windows 10’s features and Microsoft’s services including:.

Access to the Windows Store: You can access the Windows store and choose from thousands of apps (some free and some not) apps to your Windows 10 computer..

Instant access to OneDrive with 5 GB of cloud storage: If you log in with a Microsoft account, a OneDrive account will be set up automatically. OneDrive allows you to store important files and folders on line. It also allows you to share data between devices as well as giving you access to MS Office Online.

You will never be locked out of your Windows computer because you lost your Windows password: Since your Windows password is the same password as your Microsoft account password (@hotmail.com, @live.ca, @live.com, @outlook.com, @msn.com), if your forget your Windows password, you can reset it online from anywhere, using any device.

Disadvantages to using a Microsoft Account:

It’s Less private: Your settings and even the sites you visit may be stored on Microsoft’s servers.

Internet connection required: You’ll need to have an Internet connection to log in to your computer.

Less secure: Using the same password for your email account (Microsoft account) and for your Windows computer may not be the most secure way to do things. But if you use a very strong password you can overcome the inherent security issues.

You can have both Local Accounts and Microsoft Accounts on the same PC.

We both use Microsoft accounts, but the type of account you use depends on how you use your computer. It’s your choice, so we hope this article helps you to choose wisely.

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium

Never Get Locked Out of Your Windows 10 PC
Windows 10 (all versions)

First, if you don’t know if you’re using a Windows 10 Local Account or a Microsoft Account see this page.

If you’re using a Microsoft Account to log in to Windows and you forget your password you can reset it online. One advantage to using a Microsoft Account is that you can reset your password online using any internet connected device (Smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.). So, if you’re logging in to your computer with a Microsoft account, you can skip the rest of this article.

If you’re using a local account and forget your password, there are not too many easy/free ways to recover a lost Windows password.

If you’re using a local account on your Windows 10 PC, we’re going to show you how to create password reset USB flash drive you can use to reset your Windows password if you get locked out. The one drawback to a password reset USB is you can only make one if you know your Windows password. However if you make one now and lose your password down the road, you can use the password reset USB to reset your Windows password and regain access to your Windows 10 computer.
How to create a Windows 10 password reset USB

1. Insert a USB Flash Drive (500 MB or bigger) into a USB slot on your computer. (NOTE: Whatever info is on the disk will be deleted so make sure the USB flash drive you use does not have any important data on it.)

2. Type Password Reset Disk in Taskbar search

3. The “Forgotten Password Wizard” will appear.

4. Follow the instructions that appear in the onscreen dialogs:

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows 10 Tips

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows 10 Tips

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows 10 Tips

As you can see you’ll need to know the password for the account to create a Password Reset USB flash drive. But if you have a Password Reset flash drive, and later forget the password to your user account, you can use this flash drive to reset the password.

Part 2: How to recover a lost Windows 10 password if you don’t have a password reset USB flash drive

If you are locked out of you computer because you forgot your password and you didn’t create a password reset USB flash drive, you can use a free program  it's  free for home use – one time use only)  to reset your password and regain access to your computer. The program is called LSMC. It’s fairly simple to use and it’s free – but you can only use it once unless you pay for it.

Using the program requires a little guidance. We’ve found an excellent tutorial on YouTube showing you exactly how to use LSMC to reset your Windows 10 password and regain access to your Windows 10 computer. So, if you want to know how to use LSMC, watch this video by Windows expert, Robert Mayer. The video shows you, step-by-step, how to use LSMC to reset your Windows 10 password, regain access to your computer and much more.

Now, you should never get locked out of your Windows 10 PC.

NOTE: Thanks to Rex D. for giving us the idea for this tip!

On Life and Love

Sitting here this morning waiting for spring. No particular reason I should be hopeful. No green shoots burrowing up from the frozen mud. Patches of dirty snow paint the colorless landscape with dirty white spots. No reason to be hopeful at all. But life and love are eternal and so is hope. And though spring is weeks away, I feel spring in my soul today. And spring brings life and love – and so I muse.

Sometimes it seems to take forever for the clouds to disappear. A bitter winter wind often bites deep into the feathery and fragile early days of spring, gnawing and nipping and ripping at the heart and soul of them. Were it not for the calendar most of us wouldn’t even know that spring is only weeks away. Those more attuned to the ways of nature would notice the decreasing slant of the sun and notice too, the lengthening of the days. The clouds of winter will only disappear when the first breath of spring blows them away.

Love and life, both eternal and tenacious, seem to spring up in the most unlikely of places. A late winter walk into the still winter-dead woods its testimony. The drab brown-gray earth matted with leaves long dead and trees barren and still and lifeless may not seem much like a nursery of life, yet it is. From beneath the dead things, soon green things will grow. Soon the tips of the shoots of new life will pierce death as easily as the sun slices through the blue spring sky unhindered by clouds or the fear of being chased quickly away by shrill, howling winter winds. It seems even the sun is affected by the dead cold breath of winter.

The forest may be filled with dead and rotting things but I know that life still prevails. No matter that it would be easier..

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium - Back to Basics

What is a wildcard?

When EB and I used to play poker she always wanted to make a bunch of cards wild. I used to want just jokers to be wild. EB was so wild back in those days, she should have married Tarzan. She'd want 5's, 7's, 9's, queens and jokers wild. I'd be so confused with all the wild cards, I gave up and she always won by forfeit. That's just how she is.

Nooooo! That's not the kind of wildcard we're talking about. What's that EB? Don't end a sentence with a preposition? OK. That's not the kind of wildcard we're talking about, EB. Is that better?

Now...back in the days when EB was young and thin - and TC was dashing and macho - we used to use what were known as "Wildcards". For instance, if we were looking for a PDF file and we didn't know its name, we could use a wildcard to search for all PDF files on our computers.

The search would look like:

*.pdf

The asterisk is the wildcard. If we were looking for a text file but not sure of its name...

*.txt

Or a Word document:

*.doc or *.docx

And, though EB is no longer young and thin, wildcards still work on Windows 10 (and Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 8.1 too).

Wildcards can help you find things when you're not sure of the name of the file but you know it's type (extension).

EB, what are you thinking of? Oh, sorry! What are you thinking of, EB?
