  1. One thing I am concerned about though is sometimes attackers might use methods that download and execute malicious things without me being aware but again I think Malwarebytes covers that.
  2. I scanned my computer using Trend Micro, Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner and nothing came up. Trend Micro also has real time protection and website protection and nothing cam up as well. Hopefully it is nothing and I'll be more careful with my PC next time.
  3. Hi, everyone today my little cousin decided to go on my PC laptop today tried to Google if there were anymore Overwatch giveaways from Overwatch teams because he missed the Dallas Fuel one. As I came back from my shower I noticed that he was on these websites http://dashboard.iot.clv.macnica.co.jp/fanart/how-to-get-free-overwatch-league-tokens.html dashboard.iot.clv.macnica.co.jp gag.picosaranchresort.com So like the title says should I be concerned about these websites giving me malware, viruses etc? Really paranoid right now and any help would be
  4. Hi everyone, right not I am having issues with my Microsoft Office specifically with "reactivating" it. From time to time the 2013 Microsoft Office on my mum's laptop would become unlicensed which wouldn't be a problem as I would use cscript ospp.vbs /act to reactivate it in CMD. However when I tried doing this again this morning an error came up (see image) I have a feeling it might have something to do with my connection blocking the ospp.vbs from working or an issue with ospp.vbs itself as the same error message appears when I type any other options after it (ospp.vbs /act, osp
  5. At what temperature do you think I should be like "hey I should probably open up my PC/Laptop and see if there is dust blocking the cooling"
  6. Has anyone had a bad experience with Galax? Here in Australia Galax graphics cards are always a bit cheaper than most well known brands and I'm considering purchasing a Galax card but I am a bit apprehensive.
  7. Hi everyone, so I've recently purchased a Moto G8 plus from an eBay business and I was wondering if there is a way to check where the country of origin the phone is from. Just like how on iPhone eg. an LL in the model code means it is US. This is because the business claimed that the phone is Australian stock however for the price I paid I feel like it might be a gray import. Before purchasing, I did all of the necessary checks on the seller and they seemed positive. I just wanted to check for peace of mind and hopefully if there is a way to check the country of origin and it is no
  8. Hi everyone, right now I want to replace the thermal pads on my GTX 1070 and the ssd in my laptop too and I was wondering whether I could use thermal pads from AliExpress / eBay. For the people who have experience using these pads are they crap, or are they good enough to transfer the heat. Lastly, if I buy thermal pads that are too thin will stacking pads affect the effectiveness of the pads? Example of what I want to buy. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32678568375.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.d2d27549qDDlzU&algo_pvid=a71af748-30fb-4e5b-9c0a-79
  9. Hi guys, so right now I’m doing a screen repair on a Nexus 5X and I’ve realized that there is a thermal pad on the phone’s screen assembly (see picture). I don’t think I can transfer this pad without breaking it so I was wondering which thermal pad should I buy. Is it fine to use pads that are for PCs eg. GPUS? Should I be buying 0.5mm thickness or 1mm thickness? Are AliExpress/eBay thermal pads fine. eg. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32716660768.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.5dae7549Vth9VR&algo_pvid=461775fd-7b21-4468-9f29-58b4e0d4017a&algo_expid=4
  10. Thanks for the reply might actually use this method. Btw since this the laptop's windows license is registered to my Microsoft account could I "restore" the same license if I logged in.
  11. Also, this laptop is only used for light web browsing and the user is tech literate enough that he knows not to click on dodgy links or go on suspicious websites so is it still safe use Windows 10 1803 for the time being or is it too risky. (Like I said my last resort is to factory rest/reinstall Windows but I currently do not have time for it)
  12. Nope, from memory the last time I factory reseted this computer just to install and update I only got 7gb free.......which quickly got eaten up.
  13. So a continuation from this Topic. If anyone knows a solution to this I would greatly appreciate it if you let me know. Like what that topic says, I am having issues updating this ASUS Laptop with 32gb of storage running Windows 1803. This laptop is only used for light web browsing and the user is tech literate enough that he knows not to click on dodgy links or go on suspicious websites. My last resort is to perform a factory reset/reinstall windows but I currently do not have time for that. So I was wondering whether it is safe to use this version of Windows 10 for
