When all else fails, renew
The computer at work kept getting these reminders that would pop up on the screen and say Flash Player needed to be updated. These pop-ups were ignored because they looked suspicious. Your reporter should have relied on his instincts, but in a moment of weakness he clicked on the update button.
The result was the addition of four new unwanted programs, plus two unwanted toolbars on the Mozilla Firefox home page.
Checking Mozilla Firefox Help, a suggestion to renew Mozilla Firefox was found. This was done, and the two unwanted toolbars were gone. Next, the four unwanted programs were each uninstalled.
It is not known at this point if Flash Player was actually updated.
Meanwhile, your reporter is hopeful that renewing Mozilla Firefox solved an annoying problem with tiny video ads popping up in the lower right portion of the screen when using the Internet.
So far, so good.
Boldly go see this one
The whole family went to see “Star Trek Into Darkness” last Sunday and came away feeling completely entertained.
That movie has everything: action, adventure, emotions, plot twists that have you guessing what the villain and the heroes are thinking, reminders of past “Star Trek” movies and characters, a few new characters, and a story that keeps you interested from beginning to end.
This latest “Star Trek” adventure lives up to the hype. You might even look forward to seeing it over and over when it comes to the TV channels several months from now.
Thanks for the tip
Thanks, Deb Holcombe, for a tip that led to our Memorial Day feature story this week about World War II veteran Dave Battig. Read about his service in the Pacific, plus a bomber you may have never previously heard about.
