Computer Problems, Questions and Solutions! / RAM reduced?
« on: August 29, 2020, 07:23:09 AM »
I am sure that my computer had 8GB RAM installed. It is something I am 100% sure about.

I noticed today in the Settings that the RAM installed is 6GB.

How this is possible?

I took the excellent advice given and downloaded and installed the new Edge.

Upgrade went seamlessly,  seems to have preserved all important settings and even cookies, so that's great.   I haven't noticed any problems yet, but still exploring.

Enjoy the new experience. 👍🏻  :)

I guess because normally, I go by the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy.
Is it really better?

Yes, it is much better, with many new features, polished appearance and it's fast, secure and nice.

"if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy doesn't applies here. It's something different and new, not just an update or an improvement of the old one. Only the name is the same. It could be something different.


Still using the old one? Still have doubts? Still asking?

 :o   ;D

The story of our life...

It's not always a warming story, but we can make it as such...

RIP Robin Williams...

The site isn't blocked by Pale Moon for me.  Have you used that site to upload any files? 

Never used such a site.

But I thought that MBAM is blocking palemoon.exe not that site.

This appears in every report, every day.

Same symptoms here, but I will wait a bit before doing something manually.

Something I noticed:

In my daily reports I have this:

-Blocked Website Details-
Malicious Website: 1
, C:\Program Files\Pale Moon\palemoon.exe, Blocked, -1, -1, 0.0.0, ,

-Website Data-

We need Metallica here. :)

I had the same problem yesterday, but I didn't run the Support tool.

Today MBAM opens without any problem.

And I just installed the latest update package: 1.0.28195.

13 was a good one.

BUT, I could not leave this thread without mentioning THE LITTLE PRINCE, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Here is the plot:

I read it when I was a student and I consider it as one of the best books ever written.

The best chapter for me, is the one where he meets a fox (symbol of wisdom). This fox makes him realize the real, the true meaning of friendship.

"I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . ."

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

You can read the chapter with the fox here to take a taste:

But really if you didn't read it, please do. You will remember me.  :)

A question created in my mind while reading the topic and I wasn't able to answer it when I went to the product's site:

How ccleaner helps a computer running with Windows 10? What are the extra features the product has, which would help me as a Windows 10 user?

As to the legacy Microsoft Edge, yes, it is removed when upgrading to 2004 (see Microsoft Edge rolls out in Windows 10 2004 via Windows Update).  The new Microsoft Edge is now an app and available in the Microsoft Store.

And I like it very much. :)

If I could have Athena add on in it, I would make it as my default browser.

It's a matter of choice I guess.

I meant to include this in my earlier reply but forgot -- from Amazon, here's a list of Phil's published books, sorted in publication order, newest to oldest: Phillip Tomasso Books
BTW, Panos, from what I understand, Phil does plan on writing another Falcone & Richards book.  Like you, I'm looking forward to it. 

Thanks for the books list. I'll take another one from there, but first I want to finish "13" (Steve Cavanagh).

Panos, that is an invitation for an overdose!  Don't do it, plodr!!  Let someone else eat it!!!  (Smile)

I am taking the "responsibility" to keep the marshmallows and the smarties for my self! For the rest, let plodr decide.  I'm sure she will take the right decision!

It would be good if we shared some book titles, regarding books we have read and liked. I know that each one has his/her style but that is no matter. A good book is always a good book.

I'm starting with these:

The last lecture, Randy Pausch
Blindness, Jose Saramango
Think of a number, John Verdon
The friend, Teresa Driscoll
You choose, Phillip Tomasso
