    Could this be malware?

    Ok I checked the https://haveibeenpwned.com/ site and it says I have been compromised by over 30 sites and they want me to buy a password program. What can I do now? Should I notify my service provider?

    Well, I was trying to an apples to apples comparison because he was talking about whether to buy or build a PC. That said, you are absolutely right that he can reuse his storage, PSU, and case.

  10. GIVEAWAY: Win a 10-inch Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant (U.S. only) by Rich Woods It's that time again, time for free stuff! This time, we're teaming up with Lenovo to give away its Smart Display with Google Assistant. Packing a 10.1-inch FHD screen and a Snapdragon 624 chipset, the screen adds an entirely new dimension to a smart speaker. Google Assistant is integrated with all of your Google services, so that means that you'll be able to display albums from Google Photos while you're not using it. It also means that you can use it to play YouTube videos or play music from Google Play Music. You can use for anything from controlling your smart home devices to asking for recipes. And the Smart Display will guide you through the entire recipe that you're using. If you ask for the weather, you'll be able to look at an entire forecast rather than only what a smart speaker would read you. With Google Duo and the built-in webcam, you can also use it for video calls, completely hands-free. Don't worry though; there's a privacy switch built into the camera. We've teamed up with Lenovo to give away one of these lovely devices to a fan in the United States. We'll be using Rafflecopter to track entries, and we'll randomly select a winner in a week, on September 1. To enter, simply submit a comment below, telling us what you like most about the Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant. This will give you one entry in the giveaway (multiple comments will be disqualified!). If you don't yet have a Neowin username, don't worry - it's free, quick, and easy to register! You can also get extra entries to increase your chance of winning by choosing one or more of the following options: Follow @NeowinFeed on Twitter (worth two entries) Follow @TheRichWoods on Twitter (worth one entry) Like Neowin on Facebook (worth one entry) Tweet about the giveaway (worth one entry per day) a Rafflecopter giveaway The winner will be selected at random shortly after the contest has closed (the countdown at the top left of the Rafflecopter module above shows how much time you have left to enter). We'll publish details of the winner once we've made contact - so be on the lookout to find out if you've won!

    Does anyone else have an issue seeing your attachments (sorry, off topic)? I also tried with my phone .. on the Sprint mobile (to make sure my router wasn't blocking something) ... but your attachments don't work for me. Right clicking and selecting "Open image in new tab" gives the following error ... This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. <Error> <Code>AccessDenied</Code> <Message>Access Denied</Message> <RequestId>5EF1CE48A4FDD3F4</RequestId> <HostId> VInyw41A+Zzy/aACyc/tHGTkjdwhbL6QHatXMPPfyN+6i1ErbvjK6/bqcw7NQmHS/QY4fNm7T6A= </HostId> </Error> Weird ...

    Unless he wants new .. everything ... he already has the case, PSU and storage. So you could just buy a new mobo, CPU, memory and GPU. Not purchasing a new case, PSU or a new SSD could open him up to a 1660ti which would be superior to the 570, 580 or 590. So, something along the lines of what you suggested ... the Ryzen 2600 ASrock B450 8GB of memory 1660ti reuse current PSU, Case, Storage ... ... should put him right at or below £500 with the option of updating various components down the line (for example buying a nvme SSD for the OS or whatever). Just my humble suggestion.

    If i'm honest there's a lot of upsides to buying a pre-made PC. I've done it in the past due to lack of time. There are some builders out there like CyberPowerPC, novatech etc where you can select specifically the parts you want, and you'll also get the warranty on it too. Often it doesn't come out massively over what you'd pay for the parts. My recommendation would be to buy one without the OS. You can just purchase a Win10 licence from ebay for £10 or whatever and save yourself a bunch of cash that way too. Get the prebuilt PC and then just load Windows on it yourself when you get it, so you know you'll have a nice clean OS and is sort of a nice middle ground. Obviously from a 'PC Master Race' standpoint people will tell you you're a fool for not building it entirely yourself. If you can get a good deal on a pre-built, do it. Hotukdeals sometimes has good deals crop up. And often with vendors like CyberPowerPc you can spec your machine up and then call them and fairly easily be offered an extra 5% off. If you're veering that way anyway and you're happy with the price, do it. What matters at the end of the day is you end up with a machine you're happy with and can play the games you want to play on it. Just a couple of very quick searches shows some good deals for ~500 https://www.cclonline.com/pc/specialist-gaming-pcs/pba/ccl-stryker-gaming-pc/0300010105000200050000010203/?siteID=hL3Qp0zRBOc-1X8u53NiLFBdtOL494hT7Q https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/mid-range-gaming-pc-3277630

    I won't go into too much detail but on the matter of building it yourself or buying one that's already built. Why not go with option 3 and go with a shop that will build what you want for you? Because my time was limited what I did for my new gaming PC was buy all the parts myself online but then took them to a shop in town and had them put it together for me. Right now though lots of online tech shops have their own "build it yourself" option, pick the parts you want and they'll do all the work and ship it out to you.

    What sort of tasks do you use the computer for at the moment? You say you don't want to rule out playing games, but realistically you need to decide, do you want it to be able to play games or not? If yes, what type of games? None of the £400 ones you linked to will be able to run any modern games at playable framerates because they have integrated graphics (or a very poor APU), also these pre-builts will have the absolute cheapest PSUs/Mobos so even if you decided you want to add a dedicated GPU in the future, you might not be able to. The cheapest one with on the pages you listed with a usable GPU (GTX 1650) is the Cyberpower and that's £520. If you potentially want to play games, I'd build it yourself, then even if you don't add a GPU now, you know you can in the future. If you're not bothered about games at all and just want something a little bit faster than what you currently have going for a cheap pre-built would probably be fine.

    ^very good advice. While the complexity of the passwords does not help if the site has been compromised.. Using complex passwords can get you out of the habit of using the same password over and over once you start letting your password tool generate them for you.. I normally create account on new site with easy to remember and type password, then after account created complex it up to normally the max number of characters they allow, etc. You know I would not be surprised if some of these spammers just send random stuff to emails.. When you send out a billion emails in a day - you prob hit on a few combo's of users that used some common password, etc. And take the bait.. So just with a user list of say 10 million email address... I could send out saying hey I know your password for facebook, and it was p@55word! send me $$ and I won't do xyz.. The reason we get spam is the people sending them are not paying for the sending.. When it cost me say 2 minutes of work to send out 10 million emails, even if I only get .001% hit rate for users that fall for it - hey easy money... Until such time that users wise up and stop falling for this nonsense.. There will be spammers trying to take advantage.. Here is a funny example of something in my spam folder, was just going through to see if anything mis marked.. How and the F could anyone fall for such nonsense? Just blows my mind that somewhere, someone is thinking they are going to get 45 million dollars???

    In addition to the above ... if you do get some emails saying they know your password is (your actual password)... be sure that all sites that you use that password/email combo have been changed. Don't worry about the "ransom note" email itself ... just start changing passwords (if the password is your actual password) if you haven't already. I've gotten a few of those "ransom note" emails but they contained older passwords of mine. You can also use https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to check your email address vs. data breaches.

    Edge won't let you read ePub e-books anymore

    Never uses it in that way, neither for PDF's. For me a browser = internet stuff. All the other stuff is fluff and complicates the code source. Look at it the other way. Why bother with 3rd party PDF reader when my browser can do it just as well? Have it in one Window... Also, what would, for example, ChromeOS do without PDF capable browser?

    Yes, that is how (at least with Amazon) Locations work. Pages are useless if you read on bigger/smaller screen with bigger/smaller font.
  25. BudMan

    Could this be malware?

    Because some site data was compromised... That had your passwords.. 1) Hack some site that has emails and passwords 2) use said emails to spam emails saying xyz - proof we have your passwords 3) profit. https://techcrunch.com/2018/07/12/ransomware-technique-uses-your-real-passwords-to-trick-you/ edit: This is another example of why you use very complex passwords, use different passwords for all sites.. And pay attention to any sites that have been compromised Look into https://haveibeenpwned.com/ edit2: To be honest some help desk guy that works for company xyz, could leverage his access to emails and passwords for such a scheme as well. Site wouldn't have to have be compromised by outsiders.

    What about the fact that the password s they showed were my actual passwords?
  27. Dell can kiss my arse with their "not charging, you're not using the Dell recommended cable" thunderbolt ports. Especially given that there's no such thing as "dell recommended USB-C cable". At this point the thunderbolt ports are just for the show on XPS laptops. Same goes for the 13 version.
