- A Look at Webroot SecureAnywhere
Longtime readers of Terry’s Computer Tips will know that I’ve been a user of a particular anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewall suite since the time that it was marketed as individual products.
In the last few months, my frustration with a delay from a “not responding,” problem in Windows finally convinced me to try changing the anti-virus suite to see if that made a difference — it didn’t. The AV suite wasn’t the problem. […]

Greetings from a new subscriber –
Under Win 8.1 and with either Firefox or Duckduckgo as the default browser, and apparently due to a now-uninstalled malware, I found that all desktop-icon Web-links went not to their targets (e.g. NYT website, etc.) but rather just to a new launch of the default page […]

With the advent of Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the Quick Access Toolbar.

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.
