    It sounds like there may to two issues, although I found your question seemed rather confused. I guess you are talking about EPG (Electronic Program Guide) data. Many TV tuner Apps do not delete the obsolete EPG data, but keep adding to it. As the App gets new data, there may be several days of current data in the file, and rather than overwriting the whole file, it keeps the old data and adds more. This would account for the large size of the file if you have been using the App for a long time. I have seen this on one of my TV Apps. I normally delete the EPG file on my computer completely, then leave the App running to build up a new, but current EPG. After a few months I repeat the delete cycle. As far as the Recycle Bin is concerned, the storage for the bin is distributed between the drives on the system. If a drive is disconnected, then the contents of that drives bin storage will not appear when the Recycle Bin is selected from the desktop or File Explorer. When a drive is reattached, its local bin storage may not be re-indexed until the computer restarts. Note: Shutting Down then a power up of a Windows 8 or 10 PC might not be sufficient and an actual Restart may be needed. This is because, depending on various settings, when you shut down these versions of Windows it hibernates parts of the system rather than checking everything again. I hope this helps.

When this finishes its search if you are using an administrator account there is another button in the results window to clean up system files. When the search is finished, tick the areas you want to clean, and confirm you want to proceed. This can take a long time. I normally allow at least an hour for the clean-up to complete. It's a standard feature of Windows - no downloads required. I hope this helps.

    2014/15 is still a relatively recent computer. There are a number of reasons why the connection might be slow: 1. The wireless adapter in the PC might be using one of the older, slower 802.11 specifications. You have not included any indications of the speed this PC achieves or the speed other devices achieve, so it is difficult to comment exactly on whether a particular protocol adapter might be the issue. 2. The wireless driver or the operating system may not be able to achieve the higher speeds. There may be background processes that are loading the PC's CPU limiting the processing power to drive the WiFi adapter. For Windows, Task Manager may show a high CPU usage that could explain the problem. 3. There may be a compatibility issue between the new router (assuming you have a new router) and the PC's wireless adapter that is causing a slow connection. Incompatibilities can mean that WiFi connection simply does not work (the PC may not even detect the network) through various performance issues and random disconnections from the network. If the PC worked faster with your old WiFi, then this is normally a symptom of a compatibility issue. The Asus laptop I am using at the moment has compatibility issues with my latest router. However, I have installed a wireless range extender, which connects to the router and presents a different WiFi network that my laptop works with very well. I also have a wireless security camera which would not recognise the WiFi network from one of my old routers, but works perfectly with my current router. 4. The distance from the router and any intervening walls, floors, furniture, etc. Try using a different WiFi network to see if it makes a difference. Make sure you use the same network for this computer and for your reference device. I hope this helps.

  • Can you get wifi from a computer onto an xbox using xfinity hotspot wifi?

    Best answer: If the laptop is running Windows 10 version 1703 or later, then you should be able to connect the laptop to XfinityWiFi, then sign in with your username and password. After that, turn on the Windows 10 WiFi hotspot and connect the Xbox to that. I hope this helps.

The main use of the IP address is to allow that person to communicate with others and with websites. Although you can connect to somebody else with programs such as Skype, if they are using a home router then the router will reject connections that have not been authorised by the user making an outgoing connection to you first. Attempting to do anything potentially malicious to an IP address, such as denial of services, is illegal.

    I assume you are actually talking about passwords you have asked your Internet browser to remember. I varies by browser. For the Chrome browser enter "chrome://settings/passwords" in the browser's address bar. This will show you the list of sites for which passwords are saved. Click on the three dots in a vertical line to the right of an entry, then you can select delete to get rid of the entry. In Firefox, enter "about:preferences#privacy", click the "Saved Logins" button and select the entries you want to remove. Then click the "Remove" button. In both these browsers you can search for any string in the site URL to make finding the appropriate entries quickly. Microsoft browsers may have similar features, but I never use those browsers. I hope this helps.

    Does the unspecified make and model of router support disabling WiFi between certain hours? Do you want to disable WiFi or do you want to disable Internet access? These are not the same thing. If you disable Internet access then, although the Internet is not accessible, local networking such as a wireless printer or a file or media server can continue to be used. Do you want to disable Ethernet as well as WiFi? If you want to stop all networking and the router does not have the necessary feature, simply include a mains time clock to cut the power to the router during the OFF hours. I hope this helps.

    I have been experiencing these disappearing for months, but when it happened I logged out (I normally set 'Keep signed in') and log in again. However, I suspect some clown has made a code change with no apparent benefits and this serious drawback. I don't tend to use the notifications section, but I do access 'My Followed Questions', 'My Network', 'My Questions' and 'My Answers'. I have found a way of getting these back. First, I created a comment or an answer to a question. Then I clicked on the my icon or name attached to the comment or question. This brought up my status report showing my Points, Best Answers, Answers and Questions. I saved the URL for this page, and now I use that to access YA each time I come to the site. https://answers.yahoo.com /activity/questions? show= ...................................=g I have included a three of spaces to defeat YA's shortening of long strings (hopefully). The row of dots replaces the user account code that YA uses to reach my account. For Notifications, which I don't use, the URL is: https://answers.yahoo.com/notifications? This URL seems to work if you use it in a different tab of the same browser once you are logged in to your account. Don't click on the link that YA shows in the first URL. I have included this URL by way of example so ignore the fact that YA tries to make the first part into a link. You will have to capture your appropriate URLs and bookmark them. It seems to work for me. I hope this helps.

  • How do I reset the router correctly to apply the setting changes I've made on my router login website?

    You don't need to touch the modem. If you reset the router (rather than simply restarting it by removing its power for 15 seconds) then all the settings will go back to the factory defaults. You should just log on to the router configuration pages and change the settings that you require. By changing the Mbps of the WiFi settings, what you are actually doing is selecting what WiFi modes such as 802.11n or 802.11g are supported, and what further options within those modes will be available. These are only maximum settings, and actual real connection may be slower depending on the distance to a client device and the modes the device actually supports. Don't reset the router, just go through the configuration pages and change any that need changing. It is safer to do this from an Ethernet connected PC. An error changing a WiFi setting from a WiFi client may mean that WiFi does not work until you correct the error. I hope this helps.
