Re: Useaget

Thanks - I have never used Malwarebytes, but downloaded it and it immediately found and quarantined Useaget, and also Smokyashan, which I was not aware of. Also quarantined was an archive app which I assumed was from Apple, but no. Interesting to me is that some of this malware comes via Google and ...

Useaget

I received a reminder, much like the update reminders that appear in the upper right corner of my screen, that made a reference to Useaget. I vaguely remember seeing some reference to that but don't know where. I managed to make the window disappear, and went to the 'net to look it up, and found thi...

Re: Libre Office problems in High Sierra

Chas, I did not install version 6.0.0.3 because the web site advised "If you're a technology enthusiast, early adopter or power user, this version is for you!", whereas it said of version 5.4.5 "If you deploy LibreOffice in an enterprise or corporate environment or are a conservative ...

Libre Office problems in High Sierra

Is anyone who uses Libre Office in High Sierra experiencing problems? Since I updated the OS, saving a document in LO causes it to crash. Also, printing is sometimes problematic, setting the page orientation incorrectly. This orientation issue has also occurred on some image files printed in Apertur...

Re: Game Centre nuisance

Chas, thanks for you help with this. I have managed just fine for years with just an Apple ID for App Store purchases etc. I only have a desktop and a laptop, and have never needed or wanted to synch them. I only accidentally got an iCloud account and can't get rid of it. When I open internet accoun...

Game Centre nuisance

After some long ago upgrade, I had to download a newer version of Free Cell, ("Free Cell Classic") which I think must have come from the App Store. Now, since I upgraded to High Sierra (from Sierra), every time I open the game, the window goes black, with a smaller window over it, which as...

Free MoneyWorks Accounting software

I thought there was a thread on the forum about accounting software but don't see it, so I'll start one. I have used MoneyWorks Express for many years (bought a used copy) for my own very small business needs, and my wife's retail business. It has been good, the accountant likes it (they will send a...
