Hello Merry,

 

No, you are not subscribed to follow your Malware topic.

 

Look at the screenshot below from my computer. Where it says 'unfollow this topic', on your computer it will instead give you the option to follow it. Click on it and that will change. Then, if you look at the number to the right of it - next to the icon showing somebody's head - you can check that your name has been added to the list of people following the topic. Once you have subscribed, from then on you should receive an email to let you know when somebody posts a new reply.

 

You are actually not subscribed to this present topic here either. I am not sure whether you were previously subscribed to it - as I think you said once that you had received a notification, but that it had gone into your spam folder. Maybe you subsequently unsubscribed to it though, as you thought the topic was finished with.

 

Hope this is clear. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.

 

Chris.

Thank you Chris, that answers why I wasn't getting emails to let me know when someone was responding to my last reply. 

 

Sigh... just got another email from Rkinner and it seems that from what he is finding Bitdefender isn't the problem but it could be the hard drive failing.  :smashcomp:  My brother in law isn't going to be happy to hear that since he made this computer about a year ago.  O.K. I am now going to go to the malware thread and subscribe to it  :no:

Hello Merry,

 

 

Thank you Chris, that answers why I wasn't getting emails to let me know when someone was responding to my last reply.

 

You are most welcome :)

Really sorry to hear that, Merry. With all your health problems, I am sure you could do without this happening! :(

 

If it is any consolation to you, I was told almost a year ago that my second hard drive (my computer has 2 hard drives) had signs of failing - but so far it is still okay. I guess it depends on how bad a state it is in though. I myself have absolutely no idea how to interpret things like raw values - they might as well be written in Chinese as far as I am concerned! :(

 

I am sure Rkinner will be able to tell you more about the condition of your hard drive in due course. Meanwhile, do make sure that any important data is backed up.

 

I hope things are not as bad as you fear!

 

Take care,

 

Chris.

You still aren't shown as following your Malware topic, Merry. I have no idea why! :(

I clicked on "follow this topic" and it sent emails to my account twice then I no longer got emails.  I don't know if I did something wrong.  Anyway it is a moot point now.  Rkinner said that he didn't think Bitdefender was my problem.  He had me run many programs to check my computer and his observation was that my hard drive was failing.  I ended up getting Spectrum to get a good wifi connection.  

 

I am sorry I have been remiss in keeping you up to date.  Again I will say I don't know how to close my topic and I don't want you upset at me  :X

 

Thank you all for the help.  I really couldn't have done it without you! :yeah:

Hello Merry,

Good to hear from you. Hope you are reasonably okay and that the sale of the things you made went well.

Is your Internet connection a lot better now you have changed to Spectrum? It is a shame that your hard drive is showing signs of failure, although from memory I think that Rkinner said that it wasn't too bad, so hopefully it could last some considerable time yet. I have two hard drives which have been showing some signs of failing for over a year, but they don't actually seem to have deteriorated any further recently.

I see that Rkinner has given you lots of work to do in deleting the programs he got you to install. :) Just wanted to say that it would be very wise to keep a regular check on the condition of the hard drive from now on. I am sure that either Rkinner or Phill will be happy to help you with that, but just thought it might be worth mentioning.

I myself am away on holiday at the moment: so no computer problems for right now, only family problems (there are always a few of those when my daughter comes with us, as she and her dad are very similar and tend to clash quite a lot :( )

Take care,
Chris.
