- .NET Security Update Won’t Install
Long-time subscriber Richard wrote with a .NET Framework 4 problem I hadn’t experienced, but had read about…
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2804576)
I can’t get the above update to install. I’ve tried everything I can think of (or can do with confidence..!!) including
- Followup on Program ‘Not Responding’ Messages
Reader Noel Evans wrote from New Zealand after my article on Program ‘Not Responding’ Messages recently:
Hi there Terry
Many thanks for your prompt reply. I was surprised to see that I made your newsletter the very next day!
I’ve tried re-booting more frequently like you suggested, and while the problem is not completely gone, it is far better. I also found a

- Windows 8 Intermittent Wireless Connection to Printer
Subscriber Gary Cady has a nice system that he was ready to migrate to Windows 8, but some of his hardware wasn’t quite so happy with the change:
Hi Terry, thanks for the newsletters. I have a rather confusing problem.
I have an HP HPE h8-1237c desktop computer with: 10GB of RAM, 2-TB HDD, Intel Core i5-2320 Quad-Core processor, an 802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card and LAN: 1000-Base-T.

But, once I installed Windows 8 Pro […]

- The Common, But Surprising, Solution
Long-time subscriber Ed wrote about a Firefox problem he was having:

I have been using FF [Firefox] since….well a long time. I am currently using FF v15.0.1.
All of a sudden, FF seems to want to be on top all the time. My task bar will remain visible only […]
- Video Card Upgrade Solves Bluescreen Crashes
I finally solved the bluescreen crashes in my Windows 7 desktop. All along, I suspected my video "card," which was actually built-in video on my motherboard.
When I upgraded my desktop, I decided to make use of the Intel video built into the motherboard. After all, most new computers have built-in video and, in my case, game-playing is not a significant use for my computer.
So, I plugged my monitor’s HDMI cable into the motherboard’s HDMI connector. All went well for several months, although […]

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
