RE: Dont know where to put this

It's not going to as easy as asking in a RV forum. If it was we would all be doing it. Whatever you decide on will have to be unique and most likely involve the Internet if you are going to rely on repeat customers. Most campgrounds frown on in park advertising if not outright prohibit it. I wish you good luck in your effort..

RE: What's with the Win7 updates?

The operating system interface that happens to be on my system is of little consequence to me. I'm from the DOS days and rarely if ever use the interface provided by any of the Windows versions. It's just not how I learned to use a computer. Many complained about not having the Start Menu with Window v8 so Microsoft made it available. Quite frankly I never used the Start Menu from the second day I had a Windows based computer. I find it to be completely useless and time consuming. The task bar is just about as useless for me. Touch screen seems completely unnatural on a desktop system. But that's just me and it's not for many people.. I use other programs to create a menu systems to access programs, active windows and system tray that works for me. If Microsoft wants me to update the OS they have to give me something worth spending the money on, so far they haven't. I will probably be on 7 for some time to come or until I need a new computer. I'll be 75 when support ends for Windows 7 so it will a hard sell :R I don't for a moment think that I'm n the market share that Microsoft is trying to hit.

RE: What's with the Win7 updates?

enjoy the updates while they last, since Windows 7 is now "end of life" and in process of being fully discontinued and unsupported by Microsoft This will hlep clear things up: Windows lifecycle fact sheet

RE: Is there satellite reception at Smokemont in the Smokeys?

Contact you employer and ask. If possible try to find out which service provider the former host had. Otherwise I would hold up on a new subscription till you arrive and determine the possibilities.

RE: caretaker position for RV owner

Sorry you got such negative feedback. I'll bet there is someone out there who would jump at the chance to stay in such a beautiful place. The problem is how to reach them? lizzie Seems to be less and less posts offering work positions here. My guess on why is each is greeted negative anaylisis by those who have no real interest in the work anyway. I agree regarding the negative posts to this and other job offers. Unfortunately people tend to post their feelings about a position without intentions of taking it no matter the response from the OP. You who are doing this know exactly what I'm talking about...Quit it... If you don't like the offer forget about it and walk away. Your personal opinion is not needed or wanted. On the other hand seeking clarification about an offer is quite acceptable and assists others that may be interested. However, negative responses to the clarifications... see above.

RE: WIN7 updates being blocked. Any ideas?

A young associate recently left my job, and the Lenovo WIN7 machine at his work station is now in use by me when I fill in at busy times. While removing things that have nothing to do with the job, I discovered that no software updates have loaded for a long time. Tried to load them, blocked. Ran windows trouble shooting, no luck. Spy Bot and Malwarebytes, no luck. Update settings are for auto, firewall settings are also locked. Heck, I can't even change the background pic. Running Security Essentials, no other tool bars or anti virus in place. Even created a Admin user, still no luck. Do I have any alternative to wiping it and reloading the OS which our IT guy did not run a copy of at the time of the install and who now lives in the UK?. Really don't want to have to buy the software. How can I find out if the software is even legit and can that be the problem? He wasn't named Slim Shady for nothing. BTW googled it also but opinions all over the place, and I trust the people this site more. I think you should go over to Windows Seven Forums Join, it's free, and post your issue in the proper category. There are IT professionals from around the world that freely give of their time to help with problems. They are extremely trust worthy.

RE: 000 000 0000

Some idiot or idiot company spoofed our cell number and our number showed up on the recipients caller ID. The first day we received about 100 call backs, amazing how many people call back to people they don't know, until I turned it off then overnight we had 50 some messages returning calls. Some were called multiple times, their messages were pretty nasty not that I blame them. After that I didn't turn the phone on or check the messages. Verizon said the only thing that could be done was change our number which we did. Apparently you can't get in to much trouble for spoofing a call ID.

RE: Stupid question

The question is, how do I remove the TV from the stand? My RV remote batteries leaked and ruined the remote on my Insignia TV. I've been unable to locate a replacement remote and the TV is pretty useless without it. I tried a remote for a different model and it didn't work and I've tried a universal, but can't program it without the TV model number. There's no part number anywhere on the remote. There's a place where one may have been glued on at one point, but it's not there. I have an Everest fifth wheel and the TV seems to be bolted in from the bottom, but there's no screws, bolts, velcro, or fasteners of any kind visible. I need to get to the back of the TV to find a model number to look for a remote or I need to replace the TV. Take a look at Replacement Remotes Or Mr. Remote Or Remotes Hope you find it.

RE: Do you think this is a scam?

If these clowns send out 100,000 emails and have a one tenth of one percent hit rate (100 hits), @ $5,000 each they'll net a half million dollars! I live in a city of 100,000 and have no doubt there would be 100 dupes among us...... :( People are so gullible!! Even the originator of this thread had to ask if this was a scam. Here's the last line of the OP's post Do they think that someone is dumb enough to bite on this? At least it make for some humorous reading with my coffee.

RE: Windows 7 Update issue - KB 3004394

While there were updates for Silverlight included in this months cycle KB 3004394 was a root certificate update according to the link in my original post. MS removed KB 3004394 and issued KB 3024777 to remove the first had you installed it. Contrary to the initial recommendation by MS to uninstall KB 3004394 they instead now say to use KB 3024777. If you did not install the 4394 update before MS removed it or you uninstalled it you will not see KB 3024777. I elected to restore my system from a image I always make prior to the MS updates for just this reason. I have turned MS Updates off as they seem to be having some pretty serious issues considering this update cycle and the one that screwed things up in recent months.

RE: Windows 7 Update issue - KB 3004394

Just notified about this by the latest Windows Update that removes it. It hasn't caused any issues with me but you never know. There has been a range of issues caused by this update, one being that Windows Update stops working. Not all systems are affected and those that are do not necessarily have the same issues. I started receiving some errors in event viewer and my boot time increased.

RE: Dish Network loses 7 Turner Broadcasting channels

When I first went with DISH they offered A La Carte of 15 channels for $15.95 per month. They were hungry then now they are fat and well fed. Now I have 250 channels from DTV @ $107.00 per month. I watch about 15 channels. The other 235 I could live without.

RE: Dish Network loses 7 Turner Broadcasting channels

The only thing I watch from Turner is CNN when something big is happening. Well, guess what? Yesterday I turned on CNN after hearing about the Canada shooting. What do I get? Lame MSNBC with Rev. Al Sharpton at the helm! I'm really honked at Dish. X2. I always listen to CNN when I'm working. MSNBC makes me gag even worse than FOX. I just want the news without the spin. DISH needs to get it together soon before I take a hike. I have Comcast internet and it would be a painless switch. There is no news broadcasted without spin.

RE: Dish Network loses 7 Turner Broadcasting channels

Someday, cable/satellite providers will operate on an "a la carte" system, and I'll be able to pick my own channel package. They'll fight it tooth and nail in Congress for as long as they can, but someday it will happen.Unfortunately that is no longer likely. So many channels are owned by so few companies that they will strong arm the providers to keep carrying the junk we don't want to pay for or they won't give them the good channels. The only alternative (which more and more are doing) is cancel and use OTA and internet. That's one of the first things I'll do once I get off the road and settle down some place.

RE: Backing up computer

I use Macrium Reflect to clone the PC hard drive(s). Windows has some builtin backup and recovery stuff as well, but I've not used it. For backup of critical files to the "cloud" I use Carbonite. al I use Marcium as well. I do an image every three days and alternate between two external HDD's. I use SyncBack Free for daily backups of my data to a third HDD alternating between it and a flash drive. Over kill you say, probably but it makes me feel good. Cloud storage is out of the question with a 5 gig cap on data. Besides I have no idea who the cloud service is nor do I trust what they might do with my data.
