  1. My computer has placed my Quickbooks file in auto data recovery , and it shows as typed destinations are inaccessible… I have changed nothing. My drives seem to be messed up this all happened after downloading Pitstop software…. they cannot help they said I… they did try a few things… if I could get Quickbooks and my documents to save returning to factory settings would not be a problem

  2. I’m not sure if this works so much as a comment as an observation. I use Incredimail to receive my emails. Lately it has been very slow to load and also does not scroll through various emails.

    I run the paid versions of AVG, and Malwarebytes on startup, weekly runs of Spybot, CC cleaner, I also have weekly schedules for auslogics speed boost 7& PC Matic. Except for showing a few tracking cookies nothing else has shown up

    • @Michael Hennessey: It sounds like you might have 2 antivirus on your computer. I found that Malwarebytes will conflict with another antivirus. Try removing it. I only use malwarebytes (even tho I have the paid version) when I’m having a problem. I turn off my pc matic super shield and then run a scan with malwarebytes. By the way,, why do you have speedboost 7 and pc matic. you dont need both. they might conflict. Also you really dont need ccleaner if you have pc matic either. I only use ccleaner for cookies. you DONT want two registry cleaners. they will conflict and mess up your computer BAD. Trust me I found out the hard way.
