    I'm having some interesting things happen with my computer. Trying to figure out if someone else is accessing my information or what. Seems our home network has a mysterious presence of another computer at certain times of day. But it doesn't seem to be consistent from one day to the next...

    I'm pretty sure it's my computer, but just in case.... The arcade isn't working for me. I can get there and click on the game I want to play and then the screen pops up but with a big blank white spot where the game should be. Some other images on other websites aren't working either. I'm...

    And I wasn't too worried about it (DH is running recovery software on it and I have a spare I can use), at least until I went to start cooking today. Then I realized all my recipes are on the hard drive! ACK! Well, we'll manage, I think. There are instructions on the turkey and we can figure...

    ~ I thought there was a separate area for Homeschooling, but I can't find it... I am trying to get all my chicks in a row and coming up with a backup plan in the event Diva doesn't get in to the specialty school for grades 6-12 (starting Sept 2012). In the event we can't convince the town of...

    We are up for a new computer. I'm currently slowly watching my computer die(I have everything backed up on external drive). But I'm not too savvy in regards to comparing. Some days, it takes a few tries to get it to start, updates are nearly the kiss of death. So, here is the situation, i...

    I'm looking to record my own audio books for my dd7. We are learning another language, and foreign language books alone are expensive, never mind something that comes with a cd. I'm trying to figure out the most cost effective way to do so, but that has a reasonable sound quality to it. I would...

    My cat gets all anxious and wants to find the cat or kitten yelling whenever I play a cat video on the computer. It doesn't matter what kind of cat. A cat, baby lion, baby tiger, she will come up to the computer and try to find whatever is crying. Any other animal doesn't bother her...

    I have a Dell Inspirion Laptop. This morning DH sees and email from me. I wasn't awake yet so he opened it. It was supposedly from me and then to me and 6 of my contacts. I obviously didn't send it. I am running a full McAfee scan right now. I am supposed to have full virus protection active...
