If I activate Office Suite 2007 will this override Works Word Processor but much more importantly will I be able to access those documents I have created using the free Works Word Processor. I need them almost on a daily basis.

Can somebody please explain why I in the UK can access it and my friend in China cannot but gets error code 403. I believe the site is Chinese so I cannot see politics entering into the equation. This occurred this morning.

  • Recent computer virus?

    I read on Yahoo news today that there is a rampant virus known as Conficker, Kido or Downadup circulating. A few days ago advice was given to ensure Microsoft's MS08-067 known as KB958644 patch was installed. Apparently Microsoft have done a good job in protecting home PCs but how can I check to ensure this patch has been downloaded on my PC?

  • A RAM Question?

    I have 2 GB Ram but the meter always shows it running at approx 51% - 60% even when the PC is idle and no applications are running. The Hard Disc runs between 0.2% and 80% when running applications. What is causing the RAM to be running at that capacity when nothing should be in it?

I tend to use skype rather than my mobile as its much cheaper. I have an automatic top up facility in place with them when the credit drops below a certain level. d) My webcam is a Logitech Orbit AF. Although hers is a Logitech it is a slightly cheaper model. Do both cameras have to be the same? Sensible and knowledgable answers only please with links if possible.

    How exactly is communication by broadband distributed down telephone lines? I saw a programme yesterday of a farmer in Cornwall who does not have access to Broadband because he lives too far away from the Telephone Exchange. He has to use dial up and it took 40 minutes to get connected. His friend just 2 miles away and with broadband had almost instant connection. Exactly how and why distance affect speed, connections and availabilty of Broadband? If world wide telephone calls can be connected almost instantaneously why cannot broadband connections? The programme indicated that BT are not prepared to invest in improvements to what is now essentially a public service. What is required to improve the service and make broadband available to all? Why is that Broadband speed is not affected through cable connections?
