How can I make my computer stop tracking my location?

http://ift.tt/1iZHv9S
Hello, I’m pretty worried because my location was accessed on my computer. Just now, about 5 minutes ago, I got a flash in the system tray or w/e its called (bottom right of screen) and it said “Your location has recently been accessed.”
Then when you click on it, it says “View location activity in Event Viewer” so once you click on it and get to the screen, I was shocked because I realized I had been tracked everyday since May 12 by the ‘FriendlyName’ of “BlueStac” not BlueStack, BlueStac, so I’m not sure if it is something that is trying to make me think it is BlueStack, but whatever it is; BlueStack or not, I wan’t it to stop tracking me!

Through the Google lens: search trends May 23-29

This week we saw searches on everything from surprises on the court to retro reads.



Books in the news

On Wednesday, the beloved author Maya Angelou passed away at the age of 86. More than 2 million searches have taken place this week as people looked for information about her life and work. Popular queries related to the author this week include [maya angelou quotes], [maya angelou poems] and [still i rise].


Take a look, it’s in a book… on the web? More than 30 years after it first premiered, the beloved PBS show “Reading Rainbow” was in the news this week when former host LaVar Burton formed a Kickstarter campaign to fund a Reading Rainbow literacy program. In less than 24 hours, Burton had met his goal of a million dollars.



Sporting surprises

The NBA and NHL playoffs continue to dominate sports fans' minds, but this week in addition to the more expected [rangers], [blackhawks], [heat], [spurs], etc. there were a few less common sporting searches. Rapper 50 Cent threw out a first pitc…

Why does my WiFi stop working after rebooting my laptop?

http://ift.tt/1iZHv9S
Hi friends,
I have installed Windows 8 pro in my Lenovo G 500 laptop yesterday. I have installed all the drivers which are provided along with my laptop. After I installed the WiFi driver my WiFi worked and once I have restarted the computer the WiFi connection is lost and it displays as WiFi(off). I have tried uninstalling all the drivers and installing them again. Please tell me the solution with a full description as I am new to Windows 8. Thanks in advance.

Is it really necessary to keep Windows 7 updated?

http://ift.tt/1iZHv9S
When we buy a new PC, we automatically get the ‘Security updates’ setting on, but is keeping Windows 7 worth? I have been advised by the computer shop-owner that updates do nothing more than just slowing down your PC. I don’t think that I would get hacked, when I have a paid and genuine Quick Heal subscription.

Please tell me that I should keep the PC updated or it is not necessary?

What email client will work on both a Windows Vista laptop and a Win8 tablet?

http://ift.tt/1iZHv9S
I want to have a free desktop email that will work on my Windows Vista laptop and my Windows 8 tablet. I read your article about the best desktop clients and 1 that was listed EClient I downloaded it but the free version only allows you to use on one machine and won’t synch. What I want is to be able to have all my webmail & POP3 mail accounts together on a desktop email and either work on my email from either my laptop computer when I am home or my tablet that I carry in my purse. Any suggestions? Plus now that I have the EClient how do I save the emails I need and then get rid of it because the free version can only be used on 1 machine and it is quite costly for the paid version that you can use on multiple machines. Thank you
