NEW CATAGORY! : I will now be including a “Churches / Worship – Listing every Friday” category. All churches and worship groups may post an ad that will appear in every Friday’s issue. Ads may contain up to 20 lines of text and 1 photo. Make a note if you want me to repeat the same ad weekly (although ads that change weekly will be more likely to be read than a repeat).

I insert the Sender’s name and email address automatically into posts as the Contact name/email, replacing any other email address or name the post may contain. I use this format: examplename AT gmail DOT com.

Seeking Villa Ambassadors: If you have a large social network of friends/family/former co/workers (from your life before moving to Spain) this might be an interesting opportunity for you. There is no cost involved to you at all. It is extremely part time but could yield some nice periodic income. I’ll be having an open house March 9th in La Herradura so that you can see the villa and have a better idea what I’m hoping to accomplish. I would encourage you to email me first so that I can send along some initial details that I believe you’ll find most helpful. I think you’ll be surprised by what I’m offering as it’s not like anything I’ve ever seen before. I’m trying to think creatively about this opportunity and hope you’ll consider joining me.
I look forward to meeting each of you on the 9th. I would be happy to extend this opportunity to a maximum of 10 people as Ambassadors so that each of you will have the opportunity that this provides. Michelle/La Herradura

DoctorLaptop’s Windows 10 Alert- WIN 10 v1904 Creator’s Update Arrives Next Month:
Most user problems with Windows 10 are update related. Win 10 updates cannot be ignored without inviting trouble. You cannot turn them off, and if not kept current, when they do get downloaded and installed, they will often get installed out of order, leading to system crashes. Besides these weekly updates Win 10 does a twice a year major update known as the Creator’s Updates (yr/month designated “Versions”- v1703, v1709, v1803, v1809). It is very important to have all your weekly updates installed before you allow the Creator’s Update to proceed. Missing prerequisite updates can cause Creator Updates to fail. If that failure happens after the install gets past the 50% complete mark all restore points and rollbacks will have been deleted, requiring a complete reinstall to fix! Have you made a System Image backup to reinstall from? Probably not, most don’t. Creator Updates are huge, 5+Gb and take up to 2hrs to install after the download.
Now here is the problem:
-Many users are still on v1803, considered active but nearly out of service. Falling behind happens if you always shut down your comp when not in use; Win Updater looks for times the comp is on but not in use for an extended period in which to do Updates. I recommend leaving Win 10 comps on overnight once every 2 weeks, with no programs running, if you always shut down when not using it. Also do this on any WIN 10 comps you may have in storage if you expect them to run well when needed. Windows 10 does not like to be ignored!
-v1809 is the current “version” most users should be at by now
-v1904 is due out NEXT MONTH!
You will NOT be able to jump directly from v1803 to v1904 without using a special tool (see Step 5)
What to do: Check your Win 10 version.
1. Open up the Run command window with the Win + R key combo
2. Type in winver into the run command text box and hit OK
3. Your Version of Win 10 will be displayed
4. If you are stuck on v1803 you may have missing prerequisites or system corruption, continue to Step 5 to do a combo repair/update to v1809. If you are on v1809 then you are up to date.
5. Visit this site and follow the step by step procedure, with photos of every step and a clickable link to download the tool required. It’s actually very simple and quick to run the download tool, but expect the subsequent installation process to take several hours on a fast connection, all day on a very slow connection.
BOTTOM LINE: If you rely on your computer for important daily activities, and you are running v1803, you still have time, but you need to take action to avoid serious issues this Summer.
Remember: A DoctorLaptop “Clean & TuneUp” includes updating system to fully current. If you are overdue for your annual Maintenance Servicing, and you are still on v1803, then all the more reason to schedule your next service now.
DoctorLaptop’s Computer Services, Torrox Costa. All work by appointment. Most jobs completed overnight.
Make appts by phone on 675 993 069, no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap.
