Have you not heard of telephones....
Isn't that a bit old school?

When I press the right button on my mouse over some pictures, I used to get the option of   'Save image as'  when I saw a picture or something worth keeping, but now it is doesn't give me the choice on certain sites.  Is it possible they can block this feature ?

Yes it is.... but it's easily bypassed with "Alt - Print Screen", open mspaint, paste screen dump, crop as required and save.  A bit more "faf" but still quite easy to do

For Window users
XP = Windows logo + U + enter = shut down (if memory serves right
Vista + W7 = windows logo + L = log off
Vista + W7 = windows logo + o = Lock
Vista + W7 = windows logo + R = restart
Vista + W7 = windows logo + S = sleep
Vista + W7 = windows logo + u = shut down


note these are case sensitive (lock  and shut down are lower case)

Just harking back to Martin's post 12 re two viruses in a couple of weeks.
I have had many years of virus free Internet and yet this year I am now on my fourth ransom virus. The first three I could reach safe mode with networking but this last on I can't. To make things worse I had begun backing up files earlier because I was having some big freeze shut start problems and my nephew Rob is due to have a look at that laptop problem.

What I just don't understand is why this year has been like this? The one good thing was a few viruses ago my wife was sat next to me when it all kicked off - so no embarrassing explanations were needed. Anyone hazard a guess why it is so bad this year and why my protections seem useless?

I think it is each time there is a "new OS" put out into the public domain the "rats" sit up and a plethora of spam spy-ware ad-ware and the inevitable viruses come to light in the hope that they will F### the users up (which they do)


My opinion  :D
