The Computer Group

Leader:  John Howlett phone 01530 461774
Helpline: help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

The Computer Group meets twice a month on the first Wednesday and third Monday of the month.

We are not all computer geeks, but we do have members who know something about most types of computer whether it is a Windows PC, an Apple Mac, an iPad or an Android tablet.
We also discuss how to look after the files, music or photos on your computer, how to make backups or how to copy them to DVD or all sorts of "interesting" problems.
One thing we can't do is undertake hardware repairs, but we might know someone who can!
So if there is something you don't understand about your computer, from the simplest to the more esoteric, come along and we'll see what we can do for you.
We now have a new Computer Helpline so you can email us with any problems or questions. We can email you back, or better still, you can come along to the next meeting and someone should have worked out your problem and be able to talk you through it.

Send us details of your problem to help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

18th September 2017

Two problems to be resolved today.

1. To find and download a free laptop security program AVG was chosen and it was installed on the naked laptop.

2. The ongoing saga of too many photos on a single memory card with the inevitable discovery that some files ar irrecoverable. We discussed taking it to an expert to see if the faulty files can be recovered but in the mean time over 400 of the 1057 files have been recovered by manual effort.

Our next two meetings are on Monday 4th October at 16 Winchester Way and Wednesday 16th October at an address tba both at 2.00 pm.
