Re: The computer and software security thread

I right click the .exe and run the program as administrator. Is there something else I should be doing? I don't understand 'if protection is not available to be changed'. InSpectre says: -My 64 bit Win 10 is unaware of either of the two problems. It's fully updated though. -System hardware has not b...

Re: The computer and software security thread

Yes that's what I see. Win 10 is now fully up to day and system restarted but the buttons are greyed out and have been every time I've run InSpectre, so still are inactive. Weird.

Re: One tourist killed, 11 injured in speed boat explosion

No-one said it so far so I will.

Condolences for the needless deaths, and hoping that the remaining tourists recover.

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I am told by my other half that it has a Chinese name, not Thai and Wenshidi is there or thereabouts as my other half came up with 'Jek Bier' but that second word is long with a rising tonal accent. That seems about right. The name is given on Google Maps with Chinese and English characters as: 正盛 ...

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I don't have a problem, you just seemed grouchy. Virgins and stormtroopers, you could probably sell tickets for a tour of your mind. Have a good weekend. :D Grouchy? I prefer to think of it as humor in the vein of George Carlin's 3rd career phase. He was like a harmless uncle who talked about his f...

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???
