Outlook requiring consent to delete Gmail emails when you do so in Outlook

The main thing that is happening is that Outlook is enabling OAuth for Gmail and this updates how the sign-in works for Google accounts in Outlook.

As part of this, Google will ask for your consent to allow Outlook to perform actions on your behalf. Prior to this upgrade, Outlook was able to use your credentials directly to perform operations like deleting email when you click the delete button. The new sign-in model is more modern, and includes a consent screen that outlines access that Outlook already had prior to this upgrade. Nothing has otherwise changed in Outlook or in the access it needs to your Gmail account for you to use Outlook with Gmail.

While I certainly understand how the privacy-minded language in the consent screen can give cause for concern, not much has really changed under the covers, and this access is required to enable Outlook’s basic functionality with Gmail

Firefox update stops Adbloc plus and many more plug ins from working!!

Since late Friday night, an expired certificate caused all add-ons on Firefox to be disabled.
With Adblock Plus being one of the favorite add-ons for users world-wide, this hits us hard. But we have absolute confidence in the open source community behind Firefox to get this fixed as soon as possible!
There is nothing you can or need to do, other than wait for Firefox to update, which will most likely happen automatically.

So in the meantime, stay strong when faced with a pop-up, a screaming flash-ad or an annoying banner while you browse the web.

Microsoft support for Windows 7 ends 14th January 2020

When Windows 7 reaches its End of Life phase on January 14, 2020, Microsoft will stop releasing updates and patches for the operating system. It’s likely that it also won’t offer help and support if you encounter any problems.

However, that doesn’t mean Windows 7 will stop working on January 14 2020 – you’ll still be able to use Windows 7 for as long as you want. So the good news is that you’re not going to wake up on January 15 to find your Windows 7 PC no longer boots up.

But just because you can continue to use Windows 7 in its End of Life status, it doesn’t mean you should.

The biggest issue with continuing to use Windows 7 is that it won’t be patched for any new viruses or security problems once it enters End of Life, and this leaves you extremely vulnerable to any emerging threats.

What’s more, if a large number of people continue to use Windows 7 after the End of Life date, that could actually be a big incentive for malicious users to target viruses and other nasties at WIndows 7.

So, while Windows 7 will continue to work after January 14 2020, you should start planning to upgrade to Windows 10, or an alternative operating system, as soon as possible.

NBN Change Over

I finally gave in and decided to get the NBN connected as I knew it was only a matter of time before I’d have to do so
Big mistake we’ve had problems from the day it was installed
Now on our 4th Router and working fine
But it’s a Gen 1 router not the Gen 2 with 4G backup that didn’t work properly

Gen 1
Gen 2


When I feel I have the time and energy I’ll be speaking to Telstra again to get it sorted with the new Gen 2


I’ve tried so many things and being so busy have given up
I’ve been using my mobile data at home for nearly 10 days
It’s just not good enough

So when thinking of changing over think long and hard and expect the worst and you might be lucky

Fake Virus Scams

Keep an eye out for Fake Virus scams which can emanate from a mistyped URL it occupies.

Do not give them access to your computer remotely

Close the Browser window using whichever method is necessary, as it cannot escape the browser unless you download something from the page.

If you cannot close the browser window, right click the Task Bar or press Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys to open the Task Manager, choose Show Less Details, highlight the browser and choose End Task.

If this fails hold the power button to Shut Down. If you do this Edge may reload the page when it starts back up, but it will also give you an option to Start Fresh to avoid opening the previous tabs.

Also in Edge, if you try to X out of the browser WIndow, it may present a dialogue box to end the session. The webpage is allowed to put text in the box but cannot stop it from closing the WIndows when you choose OK, so that is safe to do.

If you called the scammers and they installed anything on your PC, open Settings>Apps, organize by Date, uninstall anything on that date you didn’t install yourself.

Then run a full scan with Malwarebytes

If you paid them anything, notify your bank that you were scammed.

If in any doubt please contact Howard Mobile       Landline      Email
