  • New laptop will only open my old word files in Microsoft office, how can I change that?

    Best answer: I'm not sure what kind of programs you're looking at that cost after you try to save.
    Look into free and open-source office programs like OpenOffice and LibreOffice. For the most part, they work with MS Office documents, but there are sometimes slight incompatibilities.

    If you don't intend to pay for MS Office, then why haven't you removed it from your computer? It makes no sense to keep software you're not going to be using installed as it just takes up space.

  • My instagram account has disappeared without warning?

    My instagram app logged me out of my account with the message “someone may have changed your password” then i tried to log in again and it said “sorry there was a problem with your request” i tried to send a log in link and it said “user not found” and it said the same with i tried to search for it with the url on the internet. Usually if instagram disables your account it lets you know right? Now my app wont let me log into my other accounts either and both of my phones. I can log into my other accounts on the website but the app wont let me. Is this the result of a hacker? My other accounts arent connected to my main one that disappeared however.

  • How do you like Chrome OS compared to Windows?

    Best answer: Download Crouton to install linux on a chromebook. Chrome OS has more features than people think, and you can get it to work as good as Windows 10 for business purposes, if you take advantage of developer mode. But, as a technician standpoint it is not very competitive and quite like Mac OS regarding terminal purposes, too simple

  • Getting my iphone battery changed tomorrow in store do Apple need my password & will the battery change delete anything? I've just backed up?

    Best answer: Hello!

    Yes, I would recommend backing up all your data before you drop the phone off for repairs. They will require your password when you check it in. They are required to run diagnostics once the repairs are completed to make sure the phone is operating correctly once it is repaired and sometimes that means factory resetting the phone. So back up your data using I Tunes or I Cloud. Apple won't do this in store for you.

  • Will a person who sextortion tricked me on Facebook really send vid to people on friends list?

    Best answer: Scam. You did exactly what you should have done, and you should report this to Facebook if you haven't done so already.

    As a hypothetical, let's play this out the other way. Someone is blackmailing you for money, or they're going to release an embarrassing video. You pay them money. They still have the video, and they now know that they can get money out of you. They make the same threat again. You pay again. This goes on and on, and eventually you refuse to pay. So, assuming the video is even real (doubtful), they send the video to just 1 person, and blackmail you again. This could go on forever.

    Or, they make their threat, you shut them down like you did, and that's that. In the very unlikely event that they have a video, and the very unlikely event that they recorded the contact info from your friends list before you made it private, they could hypothetically take the trouble to send the video to some of your contacts. This would take a bit of time and effort on the scammer's part. This would first appear as a friend request, which your friends may or may not accept. Then, a lewd video, after which your friends would certainly block and report the sender. Here's the thing: you've already blocked the sender, so there is no way that they could contact you to extort money from you. There's literally nothing in it for them at this point. You're definitely not the only one they're trying to scam, so rather than waste time and effort to embarrass a stranger, they're going to go after other, more gullible people, like in scenario A.

    You did what you should have done. I'm sorry you had to go through that, but you acted wisely in protecting yourself.
