  1. Help with 89 year old


    My father-in-law lives with my wife and I. He is always messing with his Windows 10 machine and messing things up. He does things like changing his passwords to absurdly long strings that he immediately forgets.

    Is there some piece of software I can surreptitiously install on his machine and access remotely to see what he has done to himself?


    I realize this seems illegal and underhanded -- he has already been scammed out of $1500 over a phone call and we are expecting more problems.


    Any help appreciated.

    :)

    Web Blocking for an 8 Year Old

    Your suggestions have not solved my problem yet. But, I first have a more basic problem.

    I went to the suggested site and then set up an account for my 8 year old son and signed him up for an email account as a family member. I received an email welcoming him to the family and he shows up in my family list. I turned on the age appropriate
    restrictions and listed cnn.com to block. when I go to his account, there are no restrictions at all. I can get to cnn.com and I can go to sites about **** for teens. What am I doing wrong? Is thee a setting I am missing?

    Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.
