So many questions .I really still think I am too old for all this. On my computer screen I have a little icon that says Mbar. when I open it it has a long list of things there of which most say application extension . some say file folder, etc. I am afraid to delete it but still it bothers me not knowing what it is. I might need it. I have uninstalled McAfee several times. yet every now and then, I see it back on my screen? and I kept wondering why I have such a hard time hearing on my new phone. yesterday my daughter informed me the speaker is on the back of it So why would they put it there? my iphone has it on front. nothing makes any sense these days.

yes it is and it seems young people constant upgrades and change is making our survival even harder. makes me wonder why they can never be happy at least for a few years with things

@mydanods strange thing, up in to my mid 50 yrs. i could do all kinds of things before my friends and neighbors had a clue. they would come to me in wonder with questions about the Beta, VCR, cassette tapes, etc.

You can try searching on the net for what a term is. Probably, search for the problem you have. Most times, someone has described the solution to that problem on the net. It helps us to catch up with the latest craze in technology and gadgets.

Every product is different. I leave things on just incase cause I was told once that some things have important files in them. You just never know.

@celticeagle i searched and it said something about a malware protection. i think Avast takes care of that and that my oldest had put this on my computer in AZ and i had not noticed it for a while. i may just leave it to see if anything goes wrong and take it off if i start having problems

If you have completely uninstalled mcAfee you should not see this, so go back to your programs and look for what got left behind. I use Avast, it is free.

@bunnybon7 It can't really return if everything has been removed.

@bunnybon7 They could probably do some surveys before they build crappy things. I am not sure I am one of those who 'learn to live with it'...I probably pelt it in the dustbin and go on living.

I find it really odd how some phones are set up. One I had just had one small hole for people to hear me speak.

My problem is with all the knobs on those things. I have no idea what to turn or push, to increase-decrease the volume.

all things that are computer related are released with the idea that we should just know by now how to operate them or be able to figure it out.

I don't try to figure out what all the so-called PC files mean I just stick to what I know and delete the ones I know I can and should.
