          • NK2Edit
            • Every time that you type an email address or name in the message window of MS-Outlook, it automatically offer you a list of users and email address that you can choose. This feature is known as 'AutoComplete' and Outlook automatically build this emails list according to user activity and save it into a file with .NK2 extension.  In some circumstances, you may need to repair or modify the values appeared in the AutoComplete list, or you may want to remove unwanted email addresses and/or to add new email addresses. MS-Outlook doesn't provide any ability to edit this AutoComplete list, so this is where NK2Edit software can help you.

    • Windows 10 download for creating an install DVD
      • From this link you can download the down loader to download the Windows 10 ISO file to create a Windows 10 install disk. The DVD needs to be a dual layer DVD.  This disk is necessary if you do a backup using the built in Windows 10 backup software. If you installed Windows 10 over the internet or bought a PC with Windows 10 pre-installed you may not have this disk. You should always back up the complete hard drive in case of virus or hard drive failure. I find the backup software that comes with Windows since Windows Vista works just fine and is free with the operating system.  There is lots to say about doing backups, like it needs to be on a different drive than the one being backed up.  An external drive is best. 
      • However you can create a recovery (DVD) disk with a program that is already in Windows 10 (if you have a DVD writer.)  It is found at C:\Windows\System32\recdisc.exe. If you use Windows to create a backup image you can use this disk to reinstall from the backup.  You can find the backup program here: "C:\Windows\System32\sdclt.exe".
