Hi all, I'm experiencing some issues of late with my laptop, which I am hoping somewhere out there techy wise can help me with. I am receiving emails from someone who is trying to extort money from me. I've had 3 or 4 so far, all from different senders. They are telling me they have access to my computer, camera etc. Usually, in the past, I would laugh these off and hit the delete button but.....the last 3 or 4 have actually included my password to certain sites (like Facebook) which of course I have changed. Just got another one day informing me they want $1,000 in bitcoin or they'll be sharing all my info with other users to abuse and use as they please. It's worrying for me, having to keep changing my password. I've contacted the Microsoft support centre, and all they tell me is my laptop has the latest windows defender antivirus tool installed and to ignore the emails. Can someone please help me? Thank you in advance.

I desperately need a call-out to fix my computer problem. Trying to reinstall my printer, it freezes at the last hurdle. I can't take anymore advice online, I've tried ALL of it. I'm 72 and have M.E. so my energy is limited both physically & mentally. I live in West London, Chiswick. Willing to pay but quoted £60 an hour, beyond my means. Know who to contact anyone? Can't use the phone due to deafness, email only. Losing the will to live,lol! Thanks.😃

I am a volunteer for Age UK in Worcestershire and help run a technology club for silver surfers in Bromsgrove. This deals with all types of computers, tablets, laptops, smart phones etc. I enjoy this so much I am looking for opportunities to deliver this in the Warwickshire area also. I live just outside Stratford on Avon and would love to talk to anyone who runs this sort of service or who wants to start one up. I really think help of this type is desperately needed in an society where technology is running our world!!

Hi! I wanted to watch some photography tutorials as I really like to go out and take photos and wanted to improve my skills. I found some videos on Youtube and wanted to save them on my computer. My son recommended me to use https://www.tube2mp3.com/ to convert the video. Is that the only way I can download the video? Or are there other options to download videos from youtube?

I changed my password to “Incorrect.” That way if I log in with the wrong password, the computer will tell me… “Your password is incorrect.” 14067431_1166183063402416_2902927563881631829_n

Passwords

Passwords are very often the bane of surfers everywhere. You can end up with needing hundreds of passwords. So how do you remember them all? Here is an easy way to remember your passwords no matter how many you have. Each will be different and secure. example 1: (pick two names) TomandAnn Because full words are broken easier then change some letters for numbers. So TomandAnn might become T0mand4nn. You could make it even more secure (though some sites won't accept it) by changing it to T0m&4nn 2) Take you address, e.g. 75 Some Lane, Village, Bucks AB12 7SU from that a memorable password could be all the first letters: 75SlvbAS127su it looks complicated but it is basically your address. Using either of these methods (or your own variation) just add onto the end wherever the password is for. Ebay, Amazon, Tesco, Facebook etc. So from example 1) a typical password would be T0m&4nnAsda or T0m&4nnSilversurfers. You will never use the same password twice and each password is easy to remeber, unique and quite secure.
