Re: Avast Browser

Cheers Enrique - yes, I did a lot of searching before deciding against the Avast, which apparently can confuse Windows 10, and they say the antivirus Defender in Windows 10, with the recent April update, is apparently safe and efficient, so with fingers crossed, we go forth into the unknown ... All ...

Re: Avast Browser

I have avast anti virus and found with it the browser - in Windows 7 it worked fine and I set it up to default to google search. One supposedly useful thing it had was a Bank Mode which once set off denied access to any other browser and any part of the screen, even the toolbar at the bottom ... and...

Re: Track shown on catastro

Does the track actually go anywhere - is your land fenced off, and thus fenceable across the path - who uses it at present as access - how long has it been since A you owned the land, and B since anyone used the track ? Can the lawyer establish if there is any current official, perhaps even register...

Re: Digital Certificates

PoR - just hope all goes well for you! Getting back to OP GerryNag - just wondering if you have a special need to get further into the Health website - we have been here for 10 years and never felt the need to probe the website. It is possible to make an appointment to see your local GP at the local...

Re: World Cup 2018

Of course, the Tour is shown on spanish terrestrial telly, Teledeporte, but with spanish commentary - also on Eurosport with option of UK commentary if you can get access to that? Just glad the football is over at last - nice that our old friends France won again after 20 years with little Didier in...

Re: Potato like weeds

If Floriana is correct in identifying your plant, it can be a good addition to a spanish garden, in the right place - they die off every winter and come back up in the summer, flower freely in different colours, deep pink, or yellow, usually but often stripey petals and the main claim to fame is the...

Re: Land registry + legality + mortgages

One of the stipulations on a property being newly connected to the electricity supply (rather than a temporary one put in for the builders) is that the paperwork has been completed to the local authority's standard (which may vary from one place from another!) ... so be aware that if you are going t...

Re: Windows 10 1803 Update

Some time has passed, and at just before 7 pm the installation was completed, didnt need more than the initial restart, and all seems to be working OK. Checked the Winver and it is indeed now 1803 OS build 17134.137. I have done the various inputs it requested, and that took nearly an hour, had a bi...

Re: Windows 10 1803 Update

Finally got to 100 per cent at 3.40, paused for a while then put up a big blue notice inviting me to agree to re-start, and also saying that it was a bigger update than usual, so to expect it to take a while .... We now have the Restarting with the whirly white dots circulating - all good so far! St...

Re: Renta 2017

Avalena - I was once told that it could ONLY be paid from a spanish bank account, and that is why it will not recognise the UK based IBAN. Perhaps the solution is to go back to the gestor you have already been in touch with and ask if their IBAN could be put in for payment and arrange a transfer int...
