Small translucent circles and dots started showing up on a Windows 10 laptop's touchscreen. The longer the machine was on the more of them there were. Spent over an hour checking for virus, driver and hardware issues. Eventually gave up thinking it was a bad screen. A couple of days later got a call from its owner saying he had solved the problems. Seems the tape he put over the webcam lens to keep spys out might have been touching the touchscreen. He took off the tape and the spots are gone.

Don't ya just hate it when Microsoft Solitaire crashes in the middle of a game or worse when it freezes before it even gets loaded. Well, you are not alone. Here is a quick way to give it a swift kick and get it up and running again.
Latham 12110: A friend of mine sent me an e-mail with a link to a web page that promises to "Stop Win10 spying ability".

A Surprise in Your Taskbar
"Windows 10 will be here sometime this summer", they said. I have known this was coming for a while.
Surprise! Getting things set up on the bench this morning (6/1/15) and a strange new icon started showing up in the tray on several machines. I almost spilled my coffee when I rolled the mouse over one and saw an invite for Windows 10.
