Can anybody help this little chap? We are fostering him at the moment but need to find a loving home for him as we cannot keep him much longer.

He’s about 11 weeks old. He’s very affectionate and loves cuddles.

Our son has trained him to sit and shake his paw so intelligently too.                  Please reply to amandawood96 @ yahoo . co . uk (no spaces) or                         phone number 634316474

DoctorLaptop Windows Security Bulletin – QuickTime

Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 small

Windows users who have the Apple QuickTime video player installed should uninstall it immediately.

Apple has ended all support for it, including security patches. QuickTime for Apple products is still supported. Also,  Trend Micro has discovered two unpatched critical vulnerabilities in QuickTime for Windows, and Apple is not going to fix them. Windows 7 has supported .MOV files without needing QuickTime since 2009 so it won’t be missed in most cases. A handful of obscure or older applications may require QuickTime in order to work properly. If you use one of these it is time to find a modern alternative.

To uninstall QuickTime for Windows, click Start, open Control Panel, then click Programs and Features. Find QuickTime in the list of programs, right-click, then select Uninstall. Don’t be surprised if you get a scary-looking pop-up asking “Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes on this computer?” That’s just the QuickTime uninstaller. Click Yes, and QuickTime will be removed from your computer. Oddly, the program remains available for download from Apple’s website. Apparently, Apple thinks there will remain some users who just can’t live without it, even with these critical flaws.           Read more:
