- Can I Use Acronis True Image to Restore to My New Notebook?
Subscriber Ed McDowell wrote recently to ask about using Acronis True Image for a special task: I am purchasing a new laptop with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

This Week Online:
With my new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site, I now publish articles individually rather than as an on-line issue. That also means that I can link directly to the articles, as I’ve done below:
- An Early Look at Mailwasher Pro 2010
This week, I downloaded and installed Mailwasher Pro 2010 on my main desktop computer. I’m impressed… Mailwasher Pro 2010, like the older Mailwasher Pro, is an anti-spam system that checks your email while it is still on the mail server (before you ever download it) — but Mailwasher Pro 2010 has been completely rewritten. It […]

Want to have a blog? Want to share pictures and thoughts with family and friends? Want a web site for your small business? Did you miss your opportunity to get 50% off a web hosting package at HostGator? THEY’RE DOING IT AGAIN! HostGator had such a great response to their Black Friday crazy special that […]
- Thunderbird Didn’t Display HTML eMail Correctly
After last week’s email newsletter, long-time friend, subscriber and open-source fan Ron Spruell wrote about his HTML email problem with Thunderbird: Terry – There is something wrong with your html code, my computer, or someone in the email chain messed with your code. Ron Spruell I wrote back to Ron to tell him that I’m […]
- Most of my newsletter and site work this week has been posting older articles to the web site, as you can see in the list of articles below…
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
I love the new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to the Genesis Theme Framework.
The following are new individual articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally posted in my email or online newsletters.
As above, these are now direct links to the individual articles…
- Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2010 Specials
Many manufacturers and vendors have Black Friday, Black Friday Weekend, and Cyber Monday special sales — after all, Friday is the biggest sales day of the year in the U.S.A. and Monday is the largest online sales day. Check back often over the weekend, as I’ll be adding more links as I find them. Amazon.com […]
- Setting VIPRE Antivirus Premium’s Firewall to Trust a Network
I answered a question recently that came from mailing list to which I subscribe. The questioner had received a security pop-up from VIPRE Antivirus Premium, the antivirus / antispyware / antiadware / firewall security program that I use and recommend. The popup advised that a computer at a specific IP address was trying to make […]
- Computer Can Not Find Printer and Digital Camera
Subscriber Kevin Coughenour has problems with an older Dell computer — his computer can no longer talk to the printer. Similarly, it can not find Kevin’s digital camera (when it’s plugged in <grin>). Kevin’s question was: Hi, I have an older Dell Dimension 2400 and lost the printer and digital camera functions. It tells me […]
- Virtual Memory & When You Need More Real Computer Memory
Memory, Virtual Memory, and where can you get memory to add (hint: Crucial Technology). New subscriber Yogesh Anand wrote to ask: Hi, This is Yogesh Anand and I just have registered myself on your website and have a query if I could any solution for this, my query is :-Its about “virtual memory” We all […]
- Email Security When Using Wireless Networking
Email security is critical when you use wireless networking. When you use wireless networking at home, if you haven’t set your wireless router and wireless adapters to use the best encryption they will support (currently WPA2 for most personal wireless devices), you don’t have a secure system. You are broadcasting your data unencrypted or with […]
