  1. Recently my Windows Live Mail has stopped displaying some message images. Whether this is a result of changes made by the last batch of Windows 10 updates, I'm not sure - it could be. Most images (I think those that are embedded within the HTML) display OK, but other ones (presumably jpg's) simply display as as 'place holders' with a x in the corner. I have checked WLM settings to ensure that it says display images (which it does) but somewhere something is stopping them from displaying. If any one knows where else I should be looking for a 'blocking function' please let me know. I run the 64-bit version of Windows 10 and use Kaspersky Total Security AV with SurfRight HitManPro and Malwarebytes Anti-malware running in the background. I ocassionally run Superantispyware Professional and Winzip Malware Protector, but these only run when I select them.
  2. I've just run Belarc Advisor on my 64-bit Windows 10 system and it has reported that I don't have a Critical Quicktime Update - Hot Fix HT205638 - installed. It doesn't say whether this is a Microsoft or an Apple hot fix. (I suspect the latter.) I have tried searching for it on the web but have been unable to find / download it. Apple's support page wasn't any help as I don't have any Apple hardware. Does anyone know where I can download it from? Thanks tallboy
  3. There are two accounts on our 64-bit Windows 10 Dell laptop - the primary Admin User and one restricted access user. Whilst the restricted user can access secure web sites (i.e. starting with https:) the Primary Admin User can't - any attempt to do so results in error messages of one sort or the other. However, non -secure sites (starting with http:) can be accessed. The problem is common to all browsers - Google, Firefox, Opera, IE11 & Edge. It would appear that the Primary User's Profile has been corrupted - although everything else works OK for that user. How can I repair it (bearing in mind that it is the account from which the PC was set up in the first place) without deleting it? I have tried setting the security to the default levels (in the Control Panel), but that didn't fix the problem. I did try following a 'Tech Support All' article that claimed to fix https: errors, but it reported that several dll modules could not be found & failed to load. Incidentally, everything was fine up until the last major Windows 10 update (to version 1511). The problem could be a co-incidence, but it might have been caused by the update process. I hope there is a simple answer!. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks. tallboy
