    Disconnect during absence

    Disconnect during absence

    Well that's good to hear. I have Malwarebytes and Windows Defender. That's it. I think I'll leave well enough alone and not worry. Thanks again.

    Disconnect during absence

    and if not set as default, (by some quirky thing), go to icon on task bar and reconnect? My main issue for asking about this is security. If left unattended, are you more at risk for a sneak attack? Conversely, even if sitting at pc, can you really stop such? Thanks again.

    Disconnect during absence

    On one of my older laptops, there was an F12 key that disconnected from the net. I looked on line for a guide somewhere to tell what the F keys do. None of the entries seem to address win10.

    password issues

    Well, I can imagine incorrect typing to be the culprit for one, two and possibly 3 attempts but not 5. Plus the password for the standard account works - this is for the admin account password.

    password issues

    Don't know what gives with my password. Win10 no longer sees it as legit. I entered it about 5 times and it then worked. After downloading a file to install software it then refused the password again... and then it worked. What do I do about this problem? and what has caused it to fail and...
