  1. Very cool!!! If my trusty unicomp ever gives up the ghost, I might give that a try.
  2. Today was the beginning of the end of Nazi tyranny. Almost 2500 men made the ultimate sacrifice to insure the landing was successful. We owe more than we can repay for the bravery of these men. https://smokeroom.com/2018/06/06/d-day-74th-anniversary-tributes/
  3. Another vote for Macrium Reflect. Make a boot disk after installing it and you can use that CD to boot with to start the restore.
  4. Posted too soon. Started a cold boot this A.M. and experienced the same problems as in my #1 post. Shut down with the power button, then immediately started up CP and uninstalled MB. I'll wait for the next release...
  5. Downloaded and installed Ver 3.4.4. rebooted, even though the program didn't ask me to. Windows 10 opened normally. Opened MB and registered the program. No problems that I can detect.
  6. Hi Fran, I've already uninstalled the current MB version - didn't get a chance to see the version number. I just went to their forum site, but haven't seen any reports of what happened to me PC this A.M. I'll D/L the most recent version and keep my fingers crossed. Thanks!
  7. I think. When I started up this A.M. I got a pop-up that a new version of MB was available. So before launching anything, I clicked O.K. to install the new version. After it finished, I tried to launch Chrome. The window opened but my home page did not show, and would not show even after hitting the home page icon. So I tried to close Chrome, but the system would not do so. I started up task manager, and the window opened but said Not Responding. I tried a restart but got a not responding. I tried a three finger salute, but the pop-up window didn't show shutdown or restart but did show sign off, which I selected. It then showed a green screen with Sign Off but nothing happened. I went and got a cup of coffee, and when I came back the same screen appeared. I used the restart button on the PC, and it appeared to reboot. Signed on, and had the same problems as before. This time I used the power button to force a shutdown. Went and got another cup of coffee. Started the PC up, and after signing in, opened control panel and uninstalled MB. After another restart, the PC appears to be O.K. as you can see. Anyone else having problems with MalwareBytes? Tks
  8. My 01 Silverado doesn't either.
  9. Went to get a fresh cup of coffee, and returned to a black screen. Immediately suspected ver 1709 of WIN10, but didn't turn out that way. Had to do a manual reboot using the reset button on the case - nothing else worked. After rebooting and reviewing the error file, the only named problem was malwarebytes. While diagnosing the problem, the PC black screened again. After another reboot, I brought up Task manager and watched the processes screen. Malwarebytes was using over 4 GB of RAM, and increasing. When it got close to the 8 GB in my PC, I hit the end task for the program. However, though it closed, it relaunched itself, and the RAM usage started increasing again. I went to the icon on the right side of the task bar, and told it to turn off. Even with that, when I checked in task manager, it was still showing. I did an end task again, and this time it did not restart. PC running normally now... Bad update?
  10. Yeah, New Orleans is going to get really cold tonight. It will be in the 20s in the morning with a windchill of 9F. 18F over here across the lake. About an inch of sleet/snow mix. Didn't get above freezing until 11:30 or so. Weird!!!
  11. Believe it or not, tonight, down here in semi tropical SE Lousisana, this just might happen. NWS forecasting 40% chance of solid precip!
  12. Liz, I've never gotten an expiration email...
