    Can I make my wireless keyboard's touchpad appear as a device in my PC settings so I can customize its behavior?

    Thank you! Unfortunately I did not explain my issue in full. While your tip is a great bonus, there are no issues with the Logitech touchpad. I've had to buy a Rii because my Logitech keyboard is erratic (the touchpad is fine), only to discover the Rii touchpad does not allow selecting to drag...

    I have two I could try: Logitech K400 or Rii K18 3-LED Color 2.4GHz

    Can I make my wireless keyboard's touchpad appear as a device in my PC settings so I can customize its behavior?

    Thanks, but neither the logitech nor the rii wireless keyboards, which self-install, seem to enable that (my mouse menu under device settings never changes to "mouse and touchpad"

    Erratic wireless keyboard

    Yes, Ian, it is out of warranty. Sorry I took so long to answer, *some* notifications go to my spam folder (ah, Outlook!). One more piece to the puzzle: I stopped using it for a few days, then reinstalled and OF COURSE it worked... for a few more days. Just now, my Amazon Echo light blinked...

    Erratic wireless keyboard

    My logitech wireless keyboard has been behaving erratically for the last year or so. It is not about the connection, but key behavior (z suddenly becoming J, " becoming backspace, or --the latest-- typing correctly but from right to left). I have contacted logitech and followed every possible...

    Thank you, Wolfie. The question would be, can you think of specific types of bugs that might make it through WD that Avast would be better at catching? I guess it would depend on what you use your computer for most and in what areas they are most likely to be encountered (games, design, music...

    Thank you, BigFeet! You're teaching me so much stuff. Here are the main suspects, though levels are not at their highest right now...

    Slow motion

    Thank you, BigFeet! Here's the thing. I made sure not much else is running other than what I described, and the task manager doesn't let me selectively end "heavier" processes within either browser; if I click to end one process, the whole browser shuts off. Plus, I wouldn't want to have to...

    Slow motion

    Thanks, BigFeet, I've been educating myself and now I see the multiple processes are normal... The thing is, regardless of system specs, it did not USE to be this slow. And, precisely, CPU and Memory fluctuate but reach unusually high levels (80% for Memory, for example). I've only gone and...

    Slow motion

    I decided to uninstall Malwarebytes instead, as it appeared to have more than one unstoppable versions running. But let me recap the main issue: when I start Windows (10) and open my browsers (Firefox and Chrome), it is very sluggish. When I go to Task Manager to see why, it's because the two...

    Slow motion

    Thanks, Wolfie, but I'm not sure I follow. Am I supposed to run Avast on safe mode in case it has a virus? Wouldn't it make more sense to uninstall it (it may simply be defective) and start from scratch, with Malwarebytes on?

    Slow motion

    Hi, Wolfie. The name is Program. It looks fake, but I have no way of knowing as options are greyed out. I can only stop it each time, as it doesn't show as an app available to uninstall. Plus, I don't even know for sure if it's the culprit. I did use antivirus tools (Avast and Malware). I have...

    Thanks, BigFeet... Open file location= show in folder. Suspiciously greyed out, not an option. I've been reading more about the issue. How would I go about checking if it's due to bad drivers? Just wondering.

    Slow motion

    Thanks, Wolfie! I'd tried that last time around but I went there again and disabled a suspiciously named app ("Program"). Anything I can do if it turns out it's malicious? File manager won't "show it in folder"... I'll be monitoring the speed, but I was wondering: could I "selectively" end...
