Can no longer write to files in my home Documents
My files in my home Document are no longer writable. I've suspected Dropbox, Bitdefender and Windows Account, but am unable to fix. If I try to write to a file in \Users\me\Documents it says: You'll need to provide administrator permission ... So if I chose 'Continue', it says You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from me-DESKTOP\me to make changes I am logged in to me-DESKTOP as me. I am the Administrator and only user on this box and for years all has been fine, until recently. Another interesting find is that I seem to only have this problem with a compressed folder. I cannot Uncompress it either, 'An error occurred applying attributes to the file: Access is denied". When I open Properties, Security, Advanced I can see that the Owner is me (me-DESKTOP\me) and if I click on the 'Change' button NOTHING happens except the Change button becomes grayed out. If I do the same steps in SAFE mode, I can actually change ownership to me, but when I boot back to regular mode the problem returns. I've disabled my anti virus, uninstalled dropbox but continue to have the issue. I've found that if I copy the files to a new location they become writable. I also have another weird issue where I am regularly being advised by Windows that my Windows Account needs to be updated and opens a dialog asking me to login with an old email address that I no longer have. I have gotten a reset code (on an alternate email address) and updated my account to use a new email address but when I get the notification that my windows account needs to be updated I just repeat - as in, just read this paragraph over and over and over.

Will they shut down the activation servers of office 2010
hey guys I still use Microsoft Office 2010 to make documents and for school because google drive is very buggy for me (and I think office is much better good job Microsoft) I might need to activate it on my new PC which may come after support ends in two weeks. Will they close down the servers to activate it? I think probably not because I still have product key for 2003 and it worked fine last week but just making sure. I would also like to know why stuff from the 1990s won't work on my x64 bit Windows 10 PC. I still use Vista or 7 for those but know if I get a virus bye bye Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000.

Let say you are facing a technical problem in Windows and you have the following options: 1) You could just format and reinstall Windows (e.g. using reset or refresh) and reinstall and recover everything and go back to world. 2) You will work on find and fix the problem and solve it without formatting your Windows.

Win 10 Pro mouse/keyboard issues
I recently purchased an i7 desktop, running Win 10 Pro. I've previously had/have several Win 10 machines, but not one with "Pro". I am having a problem with the mouse and keyboard. After the machine has been running for a while (a half hour or so) the mouse gets "jerky" and sometimes unresponsive to movement, or movement is delayed. Similarly the keyboard will slow down, or drop characters. Rebooting the machine clears the problem, and then it again slowly degrades over time. I have tried a selection of mice and keyboards, wired and wireless without improvement. The machine is quite capable, i7 chip, 16gig RAM, SSD drive, etc., and is not bogged down with background apps. Any ideas?
copiar y/o mover una "carpeta" de correo a DOCUMENTOS
BUEN DIA: Necesito copiar y/o mover carpetas alojadas en una cuenta anterior de correo a una carpeta actual de DOCUMENTOS para tener la información disponible contenida en esas carpetas. Me ayudaron en "SOPORTE" para usar la nube, sin embargo pude apreciar que esa antigua cuenta de correo aparentemente tiene "malware" y quiero que no afecte mi SO actual. Por lo anteriormente comentado y con el objeto de aislar esa antigua cuenta de correo del SO, se me ocurrió bajar una app diferente a mail y/o correo solamente para bajar y tener disponible esa información que necesito en la Pc y una vez realizado quitar esa APP: entonces la pregunta sería: ¿ES POSIBLE HACER LO ANTERIOR? o hay otra manera de aislar esa cuenta antigua y realizar las acciones comentadas--- GRACIAS
