    Can an employer trace an unknown number?

    Not looking for anyone criticizing me or anything, just looking for a straight answer. I have a job that requires I answer phones all day. I've been calling my work number from my home phone as an unknown number. My boss just asked me why I'm getting so many unknown calls and said he might contact a phone provider to see where they're coming from. Can phone providers see this information and if so, are they able to give the information to my employer? Frankly, I need to know whether or not I need to start looking for another job, so any insight here would be greatly appreciated.

    How can I save all my passwords without a password software/manager?

    Favourite answer:

    You can use a technology which is software independent. All you need is to remember ONE masterpassword. The working passwords can be written on paper and kept openly. See more https://bizpages.org/en/safer-password

    Why doesn't MS create a virus immune OS like Apple?

    Favourite answer:

    No system is immune.  We are looking at payout.  The most used O.S. is going to get hacked into first. Apple is on top of it with its programmers to keep viruses out.

    M$ for the longest time were asking 3rd parties to supply the AntiVirus programs as M$ did not want to write it, so access was gained into the system. Thus the fun began.

    INFORMATION ON COMPUTER?

    I was placing an order online and before I could place  my name and address it was already there.   so it looks like information is already on my computer. I 've never ordered from this company before.  I was told by someone this happens and it would be best to remove it from the computer because they didn't think it's  safe.  I can't find a way to delete it.  Any suggestions or information thanks

    Will my anti-virus subscription still renew?

    I have Norton 360 Ant-virus software installed on my PC. But my subscription will expire in July 2021. I couldn't figure out how to stop the auto-renew feature on the program. But I'm not too worried about it because I'm retiring my PC next week and building a new one. Will my anti-virus subscription still auto-renew for that device on my Norton account?

    Do average users know that making up long complicated passwords that you can't remember is a waste of time?

    Favourite answer:

    True -- most people aren't worth hacking, except for small things like credit card data, and even that's small time and hardly worth the effort.

    And, once they are into a company's network, their data and info is easy to get, if they are there.

    Better to not have a computer anyways.

    What's the least horrible and least frustrating way to reset a windows 7 password without losing data?

    My neighbor died recently. While he was alive, he never logged out of Windows 7. He had his PC setup so it wouldn't require a password when waking from sleep mode.

    It DID however require a password after being restarted, and now his wife can't use the pc to print things. 

    She wants ME to reset the password even though I don't know it... because I'm the "tech support expert". There is no recovery disc to use. How can I reset the password without reformatting?
