How to troubleshoot a MacBook that’s not charging

Before you look any further, you need to check the basics. If your MacBook Pro battery is not charging, verify the power cable. Inspect every inch of the cable and look for broken spots or any dark stains on its surface. If you find any damage, there is a chance it’s causing the problem.

The next thing you should do is to verify the ports for any foreign objects or debris. Dust can build up in the charging port blocking the connection, so if you find something, use a wooden object to remove it (you can use a toothpick).

Check whether you are plugged in into the wall socket. Make sure it is turned on or try using a different socket. We know this sounds a bit basic but it’s always better to double check.

Just like apps on your MacBook can get frozen, so can the hardware that controls the charging of your notebook. That’s why when your MacBook won’t charge, try to restart it. A simple reboot can reset the hardware and fix the problem.

The Ultimate Guide to Uninstalling Mac Apps

Apple made uninstalling most apps so easy that may not even realize you’re already doing it. Essentially, what you need to do is drag the app fromApplicationsfolder toTrash. Completely uninstalling applications on Mac can also be made simple with the help of a third party software. Despite the overall simplicity of the process some apps don’t fit the mold: built-in system apps, applications without evident shortcuts and other exceptions.

Read full content : /how-to-uninstall-apps-on-mac-complete-guide/

While the drag-and-drop method covers most situations, it’s still imperfect. Some minor files are being left behind, when uninstalling the app by moving it to Trash. Usually, these files are nothing to worry about, but in the long run, your Mac fills up with unnecessary junk. In other cases, apps simply follow an entirely different uninstallation pattern. This article will cover it all.

How To Format an External Hard Drive

These are just a few examples of popular file systems, and the only ones you'll really encounter as a Windows or Mac user. Which one you use depends on the drive and what you're using it for. For example, if you have an external drive you only use with Windows computers, you'll want to format it as NTFS. If you have a drive you're using with Windows PCs and Macs, ExFAT is probably the best option.

Read full content : toptenbiz.com/how-to-format-an-external-hard-drive-or-usb-flash-drive-for-mac/

Note that when you format a hard drive, it erases all the content on your drive, so make sure you choose the right file system before you copy your data. In some cases, it's possible to convert your drive without losing files—like converting a hard drive from FAT 32 to NTFS—but under most circumstances, the only way to change your file system is to erase the drive and format it from scratch.

What Is System Restore?

When something goes wrong on your system as a result of a bad piece of software–maybe an app you installed, or a driver that broke something important–it can be hard to fix. System Restore lets you restore your Windows installation back to its last working state.

Read full content : http://toptenbiz.com/how-to-create-a-system-restore-point-in-windows-7-8-10/

It does this by creating "restore points” every so often. Restore points are snapshots of your Windows system files, certain program files, registry settings, and hardware drivers. You can create a restore point at any time, though Windows automatically creates a restore point once per week. It also creates a restore pointright before a major system event, like installing a new device driver, app, or running Windows update.

Then, if something goes wrong, you can runSystem Restore and point it to a recent restore point. It will reinstate those system settings, files, and drivers, returning your underlying Windows system to that earlier state.

This can be really useful when troubleshooting certain types ofproblems. For example, if you install a device driver that makes your computer unstable, you’ll want to uninstall that driver. However, in some cases, the driver may not uninstall properly, or it may damage system files when you uninstall it. If you use System Restore and select a restore point that was created before you installed the driver, this can restore your system files to the previous state before any problem occurred.

Apex Legends Wiki Guide

At the beginning of every match, a Hot Zone will be marked on the map by a large blue circle. Throughout this highlighted area, players will find that there is an increased chance of receiving higher tiered armor, as well as decked out weapons n that are complete with all attachments.

Read full content : toptenbiz.com/apex-legends-best-loot-spots-explained-best-landing-spots-for-loot/

Given that every player in the match sees Hot Zones, you can only imagine just how intense this area can get, especially when it is close to the beginning of the flight path. If you're lucky and the zone isn't directly along the flight path, there is a much higher chance that players will just bypass the zone in favor of another area.

Hot Zones can be very risky, but if your willing to battle it out with many other players, the chances are you will be highly rewarded. If you're looking to loot in peace, the Thunderdome is going to be one of your best bets. Thunderdome has often been one of my favorite go-to areas to drop at because you will rarely ever encounter a fight during the opening minutes of the match. While the area isn't exactly massive, it will have enough loot for your entire team. Once your team is decked out and ready, Skull Town is a great option to move on as you will often find at least one team in the area - making it an ideal opportunity to launch a surprise attack on the unsuspecting players.

Apex Legends map guide - the best places to drop

We've been exploring the first Apex Legends map - Kings Canyon - for about a week now and after becoming the Champions multiple times, we've worked out the absolute best places to land in Apex Legends. The Apex Legends map has numerous named places of interest, but where is the absolute best place to land? Let us cover the rocky terrain and pinpoint the best landing spot for you. 

Not sure what's going on? Then here's a quick catch up:Apex Legends is a brand new battle royale set in the Titanfall universe which launched after literally days of fanfare. As with most battle royale games, the concept is familiar: fight to be the last person alive, as the safe area of the map continuously shrinks, which is why this Apex Legends map guide will be extremely useful.

Apex Legends : How To Get Apex Coins, Legends Tokens & Crafting Materials

Technically, because you can earn Apex Packs by just playing the game, this currency is free. But you can also purchase Apex Packs with real money, netting you more Crafting Metals more quickly. 

It really just depends on how much of a rush you’re in to get lots of cosmetics.
Legend Tokens areApex Legends’ only entirely free currency; you’ll earn them for every match you play. They unlock characters and store-exclusive cosmetics. There are variants of cosmetics that you can only buy with Legend Tokens when they are available in the game’s store. In addition, when you first start the game, you have six of the eight characters unlocked. You can only unlock Mirage and Caustic with this currency (or by using real-world money, which we’ll get to soon). The characters cost 12,000 Legend Tokens each. You earn 600 Legend Tokens every time you level up, so it takes 20 levels to earn a character.

Key Tips and Strategies for Apex Legends

This tips section is intended to help battle royale beginners and casual players understand some of the more nuanced strategies and features in Apex Legends.

The Jumpmaster is always given to the third person who picks a Legend. If you're given the task but don't want the responsibility, you can give up the position by hitting the prompted button during the countdown right after the character selection screen. 
However, if you're picking third and let Apex Legends autopick your Legend (this usually defaults to your Featured Legend chosen when you go to the Legends tab), the Jumpmaster role goes to the person who picked second. If you're not comfortable landing RIGHT in the action, try staying in the drop ship longer and landing on the outskirts of the map. Chances are you'll only land near one or two other squads, and you may have more time to look over loot to really learn what they do.

Panda Free Antivirus Protection

Panda uses three levels of overlapping protection. The program's scanner checks new files for signatures of known malware. A heuristic monitor watches code and behavior. Anything suspicious is uploaded to the company's online lab for analysis, and several times a day, Panda sends the signatures of confirmed malicious items back to the program's 30 million users.

To improve its accuracy, the company collects information about how you use your computer and where you go online. Most antivirus brands let you opt out of this data collection, but Panda doesn't.

Panda's continuous real-time scanner examines compressed files and blocks questionable apps from being loaded, but there's no specific defense against ransomware. The idea is that the three security screens will catch such attacks before damage is done.

If this level of protection is too intense, you can turn many of the features off or use Panda's Game mode, which blocks interruptions. Panda Free Antivirus alerts you when a USB drive or SD card is inserted, but automatic scanning is reserved for the Essential product.

The Best Free Antivirus Protection for 2019

If free antivirus tools are so great, why should anybody pay? For one thing, quite a few of these products are free only for noncommercial use; if you want to protect your business, you have to pony up for the paid edition. At that point, you should probably consider upgrading to a full security suite. After all, it's your business's security on the line.

Read full content : http://toptenbiz.com/adaware-free-antivirus-review/

Even for personal use, most for-pay antivirus tools offer more than their free counterparts—sometimes a lot more. For example, the paid edition of adaware's antivirus adds a behavior-based detection tool, along with protection against malicious and fraudulent websites that the free version lacks. And Panda reserves quite a few features for paying customers, among them firewall protection, application control, and detection of insecure Wi-Fi connections.

In addition, many companies don't offer full-scale tech support for users of the free edition. The first time you need extra help digging a particularly stubborn piece of malware out of your system, you might regret the lack of support.

Avira Free Antivirus Review 2019

Avira's well-designed website does a good job of explaining the differences between its free and commercial products, and if you're happy with Avira Free Antivirus' specs, the product can be downloaded with a click.

Read complete article : http://toptenbiz.com/avira-free-antivirus-review-2019/

Installation is even easier. There's no messing around with custom setup options, no need to register or create an account (although that's an option, later): just agree to Avira's user license and everything is set up within a few seconds.

We tried installing Avira Free Antivirus alongside Avast Free and had no issues at all. Avira didn't demand that we remove Avast first, and the two packages didn't appear to conflict. (There is always the chance of problems when you install two security packages on the same system, but we still prefer the user to have the option to try it.)

The Avira installation isn't the lightest we've seen, with around 1.2GB of files and the addition of seven new background processes. Typical RAM requirements are reasonable at around 150MB, though, and we found no significant performance impact on our test system.

AVG Free Antivirus Review 2019

AVG AntiVirus Free has built-in defenses against email attachments and spyware but nothing specific to thwart ransomware other than standard behavioral monitoring. The SafePrice browser add-ons for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome can keep you away from dodgy retail sites and just might save you a few bucks along the way, though to be fair, AVG may make a few bucks if you use it. Site-reputation monitoring is built directly into AVG AntiVirus Free, and the feature works with any browser.

Read complete article  : http://toptenbiz.com/avg-free-antivirus-review-2019/

A prominent Scan button front and center lets you start scanning quickly, but the default scan is only a quick scan that examines the most common areas of infection. A more thorough scrub is available with Deep Scan, which examines every nook and cranny of your system but is three clicks from the main page of the interface.

Kaspersky Free Review

Everybody needs the protection of powerful, accurate antivirus software, even those who think they can't afford it. The brand-new Kaspersky Free offers all the company's malware-fighting technology, minus the frills and bonus features. It doesn't cost anything, and independent testing labs give its protection excellent marks.

Like most free antivirus software, Kaspersky Free is only free for noncommercial use. During installation, you create or log into your My Kaspersky account for full activation. The product also installs a toolbar for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer, providing markup for dangerous links in search results and access to the on-screen keyboard.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition

With next to nothing to adjust, Bitdefender's Antivirus Free Edition focuses entirely on protecting computers against the latest malware threats and leaves out the extras. It does without common extra features, or even the ability to schedule scans, but Bitdefender Free protects better than most antivirus products, free or paid.

If you want a more complete security suite for nothing,Avast Free Antivirus includes accessories such as a password manager, hardened browser and a gaming mode, but its malware protection falls behind Bitdefender's.Kaspersky Free Antivirus offers similarly good protection and system performance, but for a pure set-it-and-forget-it free antivirus solution, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition can't be beat.

avast free antivirus review

This product is only free for personal use. In the past, those wishing to use Avast in a business setting had to upgrade to Avast Pro Antivirus . Currently, Avast is de-emphasizing the Pro product; it didn't get an upgrade with the rest of the product line. When you try to use a Pro-only feature in the free antivirus, the product advises that you upgrade to the Avast Internet Security suite.

Read full content : https://toptenbiz.com/avast-free-antivirus-review/

During installation, Avast offers to install Google Chrome and to install the Google Toolbar in your other browsers. Unless you opt out, the toolbar makes Google your default search engine, but it doesn't take over your home page. The installer also presents a full page devoted to explaining how Avast uses your nonpersonal data, and how you can opt out if you wish.
