• Getting past blocked sites?

    So I was issued a school laptop over the summer and since I don't have a personal one , I got into the habit of using it for social medias, downloading games from steam, etc. In the past years of having a school issued laptop I already know that these sites are blocked on school wifi but it USED to be that once I got home I could access them. Now school is back in session and the sites continue to be blocked once I get back onto my home wifi and my YouTube account was put on restricted mode. I don't understand because over the summer and in past years I could go on whatever I wanted at home. I know my parents didn't set up a block on our wifi because they know I'm not doing anything bad on the internet (and I'm pretty sure they don't even know how). I'm not trying to access illegal sites, just sites like twitter, tumblr, Hulu, steam, etc. I already tried getting a VPN but the download sites are blocked. I'm getting a personal laptop in a few months for college but I would like to, you know, enjoy the internet between now and then. Also tried to https:// method, the google cache method and the google translate method to no avail

Are any windows program and Microsoft office going to be obsolete where you can no longer buy that software or get them anywhere and be forced to use Microsoft office 2010?

  • Are computer desktops going to be obsolete?

    I heard laptops are more popular and are taking over computer desktops. Are desktop computers going to be obsolete anytime soon or do people still use desktop computers?

  • Windows 10 PC geniuses help! What just happened on my laptop?

    I just turned it on (Windows 10 PC with McAfee LiveSafe virus protection) and Google Chome suddenly uses Bing as the search engine instead of Google.

    I just turned it on (Windows 10 PC with McAfee LiveSafe virus protection) and Google Chome suddenly uses Bing as the search engine instead of Google. It'd also automatically redirect to a weird URL saying something containing "webofsearch and acre) prompting my virus protection to go off saying the URL (that I never entered or even heard of) was risky to visit. I went into Google Chrome settings to change the search back to Google. The search engine in use was called "Web of Search" which that name was within the weird risky URL every search redirected me to, despite the search engine Chrome changed to being Bing (unless it was just disguised as Bing?) I am doing a full scan now. Mcafee literally just said it needed to update and the window must be closed or else it may require a reboot. All of this stuff happening on my computer is ridiculously confusing and makes no sense, but it seems like I'm hacked and/or have a virus, I'm scared to sign into anything out of fear someone is watching my computer, maybe even me through my webcam, and even listening through the mic! My mouse has also been showing the spinning loading circle, freaking me out even more, nothing else has happened since closing the Mcaffee window. And no, I have never been on the dark or deep web.

  • Why does Windows defender need to update every few days?

    And is there a way to slow it down? (other than making it update automatically. I have that switched off since there's some updates I don't want and the computer still works fine without those specific ones)

    I bought a computer not to long ago specifically for DAW use, but when i plugged my headphones into the front jack, static noise is created in the backround. When I open an application it gets worse... I know its not my headphones because ive used them on my phone and other things. I plugged them into the back audio jack, and there wasnt any static... which i could use, but makes it extremly difficult because my headphone chords arent long enough... Is there any way i can fix this? Ive searched through the internet but couldnt gind a solution. Should I return it? The store has a 30 day return policy, but I've already got all the applications that I need, so that means I have to re-personalize my replacement... I need some help, very frustrated.
