Corrine,
Thanks , on Microsoft Edge I did not have uBlock. Took some time but I did get it done.

winchester73,
Thanks

Pete,
Maybe your topic was not for me, if it was I don't know what this was.

Again, thanks everyone

Happy Sunday to everyone,

Digerati, I did try to disable uBlock but that did not work on any site I was on.

Pete, It took me quite a while to use Microsoft Edge. I don't understand the computer but after a few tries I was able to get where I wanted to go while on Edge. I was able to go back to a few sites & give my reviews which went through.

Everyone on here are my lifesavers, I think without you guys the computer would have gone to the dump a long time ago. I know sometimes I have silly questions & can't explain what my problem is but all of you just listen & in the long run always help me.

Thanks again

Mary

Thanks, Corrine,

Yes I do have a account on Chewy & I was signed in. Also I have a account on Walmart, signed in & could not give a review on a item I just got last week.

My reviews will not go through & I don't know why.

It is so hard for me to explain but I am going to try. I got a box of free samples from PINCHme. Some of the items they want you to do a "external review so you hit start & it brongs you to a site that sells the item. In this case it was Chewy.com.

I went down & gave a review on a can of cat food. When finished I hit enter & nothing happens. This has happened for other things I have gotten from PINCHme.

Another site that sends free full size samples sends you a e-mail asking for a review. I hit that go to their page & when finished it says "opps something must be wrong, try again, which I do. Same thing happens. About a week later I will get another e-mail from the same place asking again for a review.

The thing is when I had Windows 7 I use to do this all the time, now with Windows 10 I can't.

Just thought I was doing something wrong.

Sorry to be such a pain.

Mary

Hi, Yes I am using a ad-blocker. This is uBlock Origin. The one you guys said was good.

I do know that  it takes time for the review to show. I have waited up to 2 days & it never comes up. when I finish the review & hit post, enter or what ever it says at the end nothing happens, the page just sits there. this has happened since I got this new computer.

Winchester, I have Microsoft edge but when I hit that it comes up with different items you can go on don't know how that would help me. Like I have said I do not know anything about the computer or Windows 10. When I had my old computer I could give my opinion on a purchase.

Am I doing something wrong or missing something on here that I have not down loaded.

Thanks everyone for trying to help me

When I purchase something online or get a sample I am then asked for a review of the product. I then answer all the questions hit the button but nothing happens. The page is never sent. This has happened at Walmart, Amazon & misc sites.

I am sure I am doing something wrong but I don't know what or if there is something missing on the computer, it is about 6 months old.

A reminder I have Windows 10 with Firefox & I am not good on this computer.

As always thank you
Mary

Computer Problems, Questions and Solutions! / Sign in problem
« on: January 10, 2019, 08:49:14 PM »
Corrine, First I want to thank you for the last answer. I have a new problem. I was trying to see what 10 had to offer & signed up to windows that asked for a pin #. I did that but now when I start up instead of saying my e-mail & name it wants me to sign in with the pin.

I think I fixed that but now I still have to sign in with my password. It is just a pain as I did not have to sign in before. I just can't get how to let me go back to the way it was. Not having to sign in ever time the computer starts.

I should not try new things on 10 & it will keep me out of trouble.

Thanks
Mary

Corrine,

I did disable "fast startup" but that was not the problem. Should I keep this disabled?
When I removed Malwarebytes & installed again this solved the problem.

Once again thank you for all your help, don't know what I would do without every one here.

Computer Problems, Questions and Solutions! / Question about Malware
« on: January 08, 2019, 09:29:32 PM »
I have Malwarebytes Premium under real-time protection Ransomware protection is off & I can't turn it on for some reason. I am sure it should be on but how? Also under scan options the scan for rootkits is off, I can turn this on, should I.

Thanks for all you help in advance.

As always thank you Corrine. I just don't want to download anything that is not necessary.  I will do it tomorrow.

I just got a notice that there is a new version on Windows 10. The old one is version 1703 now 1803. It also says if I don't like it I can go back. My question is should I update to the new version.

As always thanks
Mary

Thanks everyone. I did go with uBlock. Origin.

Another question, I have a cannon printer that I wanted to add to computer. When I found the disc that came with the printer it would not fit into the slot because the printer disc is a round hole & the slot on the computer has a round disc with 3 tabs so it does not fit. I had to go to cannon to install it. I also have quite a few older disc for card making that don't fit. Are they all no good on 10? Hope I have explained this right.

I have Dell Optiplex 9030. On the side where the power button is there are 3 more buttons which I don't know what they are for & I can't find a answer anywhere.

Again thank you. 10 is very different but I guess I am getting it.
