    Monitor/computer not going to sleep.

    I have moved to a new computer which has Windows 10 Home, after being used to Windows 7. Not liking Win10 much, but I suspect it is 99% a case of me being a grumpy old goat who does not accept change...

    Thanks, all. I am uninstalling Avast and will install Bitdefender. Marking this resolved.

    This is turning into a cluster... The Nirsoft thing outputs a blank text file if I run it from the command line. If I run the user interface and drig the AvastUI.exe in it generates three hashes, but...

    This is the result I get using Power Shell.

    PS C:\Users\William> Get-FileHash c:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\AvastUI.exe
    The term 'Get-FileHash' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet,...

    Okay, got it. Thanks again. I will report back as the adventure continues.
  11. Is the Power Shell part of Windows 7, or is it...

    Is the Power Shell part of Windows 7, or is it something I have to download? I guess the question is, is the "Get-FileHash" a command line inherent in Windows, or does some process precede use of it?...

    Problem is definitely Avast. I enabled the "shields" and the problem came back. Disabled them and the problem went away, BUT my Internet connection was trashed. The icon in my systray showed the...

    Yes, noted. Thank you. I registered and posted the problem in their user forum. I'll leave this unresolved until I hear back from them and will pass it along.
  14. [RESOLVED] Oops, files still becoming "read only."

    From earlier post "Files suddenly behaving as 'read only' "



    Yep, the problem seems to be caused by Avast, I spoke too soon on the earlier thread (posted right after start up), because a few...

    Well, when you get old, memory is the first thing to go. I don't remember what the second thing is. :)

    I forgot to disable Avast before shutting off the computer last night. So I was going to...

    Avast upgrades silently, so that may be it. I will disable it before shutting down tonight and see what happens when I start up tomorrow.

    Will let you know then. Thanks for the suggestion.
  17. [RESOLVED] Files suddenly behaving as "read only"

    I'm using Windows 7 and having a problem with a "read only" attribute that doesn't appear on file attributes.

    When I open a "doc" file in Microsoft Word 97 my Avast program gives me a warning...

    I finally found a way to ask the question at Firefox help and got a reply:



    That solution worked fine. First time I clicked on a link to a MP4, the popup asked me what to do, including the...

    Unfortunately, that merely downloads the file to the default location without query or prompt of any sort.

    Yes, VLC is my preferred option.

    There are only four filetypes listed in the box. They are irc and ircs (both "always ask"), mailto (which I changed to Gmail) and pdf ("preview in Firefox').

    Can't directly add file types? Wow, not nice of them to drop that. You used to be able to. Type the suffic in the search box and hit...
  22. [RESOLVED] File type handling in Firefox

    Something happened to Firefox on my computer - all bookmarks ditched, password registry blanked, all settings restored to default, etc. Pretty much effectively a fresh download. I'd like to restore...

    You take your car to the mechanic because it's making a funny noise. So you talk to him, walk together to where your car is parked and you start your car. The mechanic says, "What funny noise?" And...

    Does turning off the television disconnect it from the network, or is it staying connected at reduced power while turned off? When I turn it on there does not seem to be any process of connecting to...
  25. [RESOLVED] "Another computer is using the printer."

    I think this probably has to do with a network issue. Have a desktop running Win 7, laptop running Win 10, and a Canon MX-490 wireless printer. Everything has been working flawlessly, and have been...
