Things I Do Not Like – Slim Cleaner Plus

Slim Cleaner Plus will promise you the world and appears on many peoples computers and back in 2012 it received an award. We have however moved on since 2012. I have not seen it fix anything on any computers that have had it on , it has only caused issues and when you have Slim Cleaner Plus on your computer it usually has other software that somehow installs such as driver updaters. Just uninstall it – it will take some uninstalling , so use Geek Uninstaller as just using the uninstall from programs in Windows will result in ” remnants ” being left behind.

You can use your bitcoins to purchase goods and services online, or you can put them away and hope that their value increases over the years.

Does the NBN Offer Accurate Details For Your Address ?

We are told to go to the NBN website for details on when connections will be live in our suburb and what type of connection we will be getting. Well on FIVEaa today at 1.00pm I announced that i had done a search on my address and the information came back stating that FTTN was live in my suburb and I could switch now.
