So I think I'm dealing with a buyer with buyer's remorse.

I sold my Galaxy S7 Edge on eBay after unlocking it and then doing a factory reset.  As part of the phone setup (when you turn it on) Android asks for a google account to associate with the phone, but so far as I know that's optional and you can "skip".  I recall that from before the reset and I had the same thing with my new phone.  I've never heard anyone suggest that after a reset and when doing new setup that you have to put in the account that was previously used for the previous setup.

Can I get confirmation from some expert here that this buyer is spouting non-sense?  I can't understand how a factor reset would leave the phone in anything but a clean state or that Android upon starting would require the entry or association of the phone during setup with any previous Google account.

Hi Friends.
I need some advice, but please do if you have any experience.
I need to install Driver E-Log on 10 tablets and handle it to my company drivers.
My boss request is to lock any other apps, preventing drivers to use internet
I went to Google PlayStore and I've found a lot of apps and I've tested 10
The problem is that any of this apps not locking itself (except Perfect Applock) so anyone can go to settings, or if settings are locked too, they can put finger on this applock app and uninstall will shows up. So bottom line anyone can uninstall app, so they can go to internet finally.

Perfect Applock has option to self lock to prevent shot down but this setting can be disable in Settings and settings is not protected, so bottom line useless.

So maybe someone of you using some AppLock app on Android and can suggest me one, that is going to lock apps I select and is going to lock itself and without password no one will be able to uninstall it.

Thank You in Advance.
Is it possible to connect two services from different Google Cloud Service accounts together? Specifically, this scenario:

We have two GCS accounts: Account #1 and Account #2
Account #1  has Big Query tables we data we need read/write access to
Account #2 has Google Cloud Functions

We want to connect Account #2 function to the Account #1 Big Query tables.

I was thinking potentially of trying a solution using Firebase (doesn't have to be), a point in the right direction would be great.

Google so far has not  yielded any solutions.  Still looking and trying.

 I'm getting this error :
"The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send "

WebClient Client = new WebClient ();
Client.DownloadFile(scheduleURL.Trim(), @SaveTo);

I can  put the  URL into a browser directly and it gets the file with no trouble.

the  scheduleURL and @SaveTo are  good too.
There was some fiddling with that ,  and errors reported about
the path, no errors on this now, I'm very reasonably sure this is not an issue.

I get the same error using:
var request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(remoteUri);

Something on the server side is objecting maybe, anyone have a suggestion on what to try on client (my) side?


I am running a Asus router with Asus WRT-Merlin as the firmware.

Until recently I always used Google's DNS servers of and rather than my ISP's as I thought for international traffic there was a slight speed improvement and that has worked fine for years.

However I recently moved to a new property and as per usual was using the Google DNS servers and everything is fine for a few days until my broadband starts getting really slow and if I go and change the DNS servers to automatically use my ISP's the broadband speed goes back to normal again for a few days until the same thing happens and then I again switch back to Google and keep repeating this process for months now.

I am fairly technical when it comes to networks but I can't figure out why this would be the case that I have to change the DNS servers three times a week to keep my broadband speed consistent. I know that DNS servers could be experiencing a slow down so it makes sense to switch DNS servers for a while but to have to repeat this on such as regular basis seems to apply there is a something else up with either my broadband connection as a whole or my router. It's not such a hardship to make the change but would rather not have to do it if I can avoid it and I am more curious than annoyed with the situation.

If someone has any ideas about what is going on or ever heard of something similar before?

I set up a MySQL data source but cannot get it to work when creating a report. I add a field and immediately get a "configuration error", under which says:
Error Details

The query returned an error.

Error with SQL statement: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-Orders AS t0 GROUP BY Zip ORDER BY qt_Mbaw4iVj DESC' at line 1

Anybody out there know how to get a MySQL data source working with a Google Data Studio report?

I've been using Dropbox for years, the 1 TB account and I think it's great.  I have some clients that use Google Drive and they think it's great--until lately.  One of the users deleted a bunch of random files in many different folders.  Being familiar with Dropbox, I was thinking that it was going to be simple to restore these deleted files from the trash.  I would just go in there (past the meatloaf from last week, egg shells, etc) and sort the trash folder by date deleted or date modified and restore the data back to its original location. Apparently, it's not that simple.  The trash is all mixed together.  It has a "last modified" and "last opened" column option but there is no chronological sorting when those options are selected.  Please say that I'm missing something here.  I googled, "google drive restore by date deleted files" in hopes to find someone else that had this issue.  I found an old Google productforums page and the conclusion by the Google Drive tech was, "Thank you for posting and sorry you're running into this issue. The only way for you to restore files on specific days is to do it manually."  So, no sorting in the trash?  You must restore the whole thing and then sort through it?  I checked out Dropbox again and I see that you can sort the deleted files by date/time deleted.  Please let me know if you have some experience with this or if Google Drive is not a good option.  Thank you!

Malwarebytes has quarantined the PUP spigot.generic google chrome on my husband's computer (and a few clients) on three separate occasions. One client got a pop up requesting to not turn off her computer and to call a phone number which seems to be related.
  • Why does PUP spigot.generic google chrome keep coming back - I have run MBAM (premium), SAS, Adwcleaner and CCleaner, I didn't go further since it appeared to be a simple PUP
  • How and why do people get popups on their desktop to contact a company to "fix" their computer

On MBAM's site a suggestion ( was to run ZOEK by Smeenk, I've never heard of it.

I appreciate your assistance! I have attached the most recent report from MBAM.

Hi There,
A site I manage got a google alert shown in the attached image.
I have no idea what this alert is about?
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Thanks in advance,
Dear Experts, please help to solve our scenario:
- Normally, we use google public DNS ( for our LAN users, then they can go to our website (let's say in IP: A.B.C.D - properly

- When we change the DNS of LAN users to our local DNS (the same domain -, they could not go to that website anymore although I specified its DNS record (www) in the DNS server.

Do you have any idea please?
I am at a company that is trying to sync their local data drive to the google cloud but this is not the problem.

They would like to setup permissions on the files within the google teams to duplicate the MS server permissions so that certain people can have access to these folders remotely and update, edit and keep them in sync.

The challenges are that within folders we need some to be read only others to be modify and to allow a sync back to the client and back up again.

Can you suggest any third party software or advice or alternatives as I can see this getting messy very quickly, mainly from the manual replication of permissions. If there are any tools to help with assigning permissions that would also help.

thank you

My mother in law is having an issue with her laptop. When she is browsing the internet, various sites, google, kohls, target, amazon, whatever it happens to be, she will see a popup message (enclosed attachment), along with the popup there is audio telling her to call a number, and it's saying that her computer is infected with malware. I have run several A/V scans and malware scans and I have found NOTHING! What is causing this?

Lenovo desktop which runs a hardware scan once a week. Sunday it found two failures.
A Malwarebytes scan found Google Chrome related pups. Normal for MB to find those.

The next scan Lenovo got one cancel and one red X.

It gives a final result code. Then today Trend Micro would not open. I got a new serial number and re-download and that program appears to be fine. Scan with that and MB and nothing found.
Then the 3rd Lenovo scan and the cancel and one red X are still there.
On their forum it was suggested to run a Chkdsk which I have not done yet. I was planning to do it without backing up some folders. I've done check disk many time before.

It was interesting that during one Lenovo scan a message bottom right that a hardware had been installed. Not it had not. Nothing was installed or plugged in.

first scan 2 failures2nd and 3rd scans with a cancel and an Xdevice plugged in - falsem

I have installed the Google Analytics UA tracking code on my site about three months ago and on Thursday put up a self-hosted video (e.g. not through YouTube, but rather in the file structure of the site).

Thanks for your help.
