    That symptom is typical of an old desktop Macintosh with a dead or dying PRAM battery. The PRAM (paramater RAM) battery is typically good for 5 to 7 years. Yours is well overdue to be replaced.

    Did you do any diagnostics on your old rotating disk hard drive before swapping it out? Was it always that slow? My bet would be that it used to be significantly faster. I suspect that your old...

    Though worth checking, Malware is almost never the cause of a recent slowdown on a Macintosh.




    Unless a user has an abnormally small amount of RAM installed in their Macintosh (e.g. they...

    FreeOffice DOES NOT come from Microsoft. FreeOffice is for the Macintosh. There is no version of FreeOffice for the iPad (iOS).

    There *are* versions of Microsoft Office for the iPad, and they...

    Yes, they work really well. I personally use NoMoRobo, and love it, but there are services that do more than just block spam phone calls. They all seem to have free trials, so you can decide if...

    It's true that you don't want to fall too far behind. But unless a mission critical app makes a major change in file format (rare), or disappears altogether (sometimes happens), or there is a...

    It should be able to run Photoshop just fine. Besides, you mentioned problems with opening other applications too, so it's logically not a Photoshop problem.

    Folks have been giving you advice as if the pop-ups are coming from going to particular Web sites. While that is the most common source of pop-ups, it seems likely to me that isn't what you are...

    I'm in the U.S. I was curious, and I too found that only demo versions of the individual Office programs were available in the Mac App Store.

    I checked Microsoft's Web site, and Office 2019...

    If the price seems too good to be true, it is. It's, at minimum, a grey market version of Office.

    The way to go would be to call around and see who locally has a boxed version of Office 2016 they...

    Microsoft Office 20ll is obsolete and all support for it from Microsoft ended two years ago.

    However, Microsoft Office 2016 has a free update to 64-bit support.

  19. Anti-Virus and Security Deal!

    From what I've read, good x86 emulators for ARM have been around for decades. So the transition should be seamless.
