    Re: Hacked by Deadbolt!

    Thanks for that information. I looked at the links that you supplied, and my first impression was that were pretty opaque. I followed the procedures they mention (or at least my interpretation of...

    Re: Hacked by Deadbolt!

    Thanks. Yeah, I thought of that about 15 minutes ago.

    Problem solved? Unfortunately no, the reset button does a soft reset of the system, but does not affect the ransomware sitting there. I think...

    Re: Hacked by Deadbolt!

    Thanks, I had a look at that link. Problem is, it seems it will unlock the encrypted files, but that is not the issue for me. I need to be able to access the NAS setup software.

    Hacked by Deadbolt!

    We were warned about this, and I thought I would be OK, but no...

    On Friday evening my Asus Asustor NAS was hacked by Deadbolt and most (not all) files on it were locked. My use of the NAS is...
  6. Re: Hugh Perrett: TV1 presenters use of Maori phrases on TV

    I suppose the best thing you can say about Hugh Perrett's somewhat intemperate rant is that it provides a bit of light relief in these troubled times. Let's remember that Te Reo Maori is a living...

    I totally agree with the comments about the police action, but not so sure about the politicians. It is easy for us to sit on the side-lines and say "they should have done this, or they...

    Re: The Crystal Ball

    Meanwhile, the Carnival of Fools goes on in Wellington. The heroic few protest their freedom to, er, do something or not do something, and to heck with everyone else. A main thoroughfare is blocked,...
  9. Re: What is Power Automate and how can I kill it?

    While I can sympathise with that, it probably is a bit hard. The software universe is constantly expanding and I suppose operating systems have to keep up. This Power Automate thing irritated me by...
  10. Re: What is Power Automate and how can I kill it?

    Thanks for responding, Wainui. It hadn't occurred to me that maybe something on my PC was encouraging this behaviour, but I have no idea what it could be. Perhaps something planted there by Russian...
  11. What is Power Automate and how can I kill it?

    Last week I made the mistake of installing a Win 11 update that was "now available" and it screwed up my desktop, hid files in the Recycle Bin and required restoring the system from a backup file to...

    Re: Have you heard of MC Escher?

    We picked up a catalogue of Escher's prints when we were in The Netherlands in the '70s. It contains everything he produced after 1937 and what was judged his most significant work from before 1937....

    Re: (almost) New Year Jokes

    Great idea, and with all those injected microchips you could throw away your PC and simply plug yourself into the wall socket.

    My final comment on this topic...

    Since my last post I have discovered that Gigabyte have released a BIOS update (F5) for the Z590 UD that automatically sets the board to be compatible with Win 11

    No, not worth the hassle, especially considering what I paid for the CPU. As I have grown older I have developed into one of those characters who hates throwing things away - it might be useful some...

    Well, OK, maybe I should have read your post before making the order, but it's the principle of...

    I have just replaced the 7 year old motherboard in my desktop PC with a Gigabyte Z590 UD board to bring the system more or less up-to-date, especially with Windows 11 becoming available. I realise...

    Re: Causes of Global warming/climate change

    Thanks, B.M., I think it's right to let the idiots have their say. It helps us judge the quality of the counter-arguments. I wonder what his views on Covid vaccination are.

    Well, yes, but the problem is not so much the number of people but what those people (i.e. us) are doing.
