3-12-2022 Sauk Computer User Group, IL

This afternoon I did a hybrid presentation for the SCUG in Sterling, IL.
This was a hands on presentation explaining the many tools built into CCleaner.
Questions were asked and answered as they came up.
After this presentation, I usually hear the same thing,
"I didn't know Ccleaner could do all of that. I just thought it cleaned up junk"
I'm sure quite a few folks are using Ccleaner for more than basic cleaning.

2-17-2022 The Phoenix PC Users Group, AZ

Last night's presentation was for a very small group of
technology users who were very interested in the presentations topic.
The presentation was followed by a Q@A session where various topics
were brought up.
This was never a large group but COVID-19 has definitely had a negative
impact on their membership.

3-22-2022 Let's Compute, CA - Remote

This afternoon I had the pleasure of addressing the members
of Let's Compute in Sun City Palm Desert. CA
It was an enjoyable afternoon and would have been nicer if
I had been there in person.
After the presentation we had a long discussing and some
suggestions regarding a phishing scam perpetrated on a club member.
The information about the scam and the suggestions offered should
help others that run into that scam and similar ones.
We also spent some time discussing how Pass Word Managers work.
There was also a discussion about the upcoming NortonLifeLock - Avast merger.

3-28-2022 Golden Gate Computer Society, CA - Remote

I spent a part of yesterday evening  with the members of the GGCS.
The presentation was well received and the main discussion
after the presentation centered around Avast SecureLine.
There was also a question about installing a third party AV
if Microsoft Defender is already running. I wish all questions were this
easy to answer. Defender shuts down when you install Avast One
or any other third party Antivirus software.

4-4-2022 Tech for Seniors - Episode 106

We had special guests today. Chris and Jim Guld from GeeksOnTour
who are usually part of the attendees.
Today they were the stars of the show and Chris used her expertise as a
recognized Google Photo Expert to share some of her tips with our audience. 
We also covered the following topics, Cybersecurity News update,
USB4 – What is It and What’s New?, Mute audio in the Chrome Browser via
Tab Audio Mute Control. The last segment was a musical tribute to April Fools Day
which was followed by the Q&A session which was pretty much reserved to
Chris and Jim Guld's presentation.
We always stream the show to YouTube and that overflow area was well attended today.

4-7-2022 Sun City Summerlin Computer Club, CA - Remote

This afternoon I was happy to do my presentation for the members of
Sun City Summerlin. This was a hybrid meeting with some members attending
via Zoom and some members attended in person.
During the Q&A session that followed the presentation, we had a discussion
about the upcoming Norton/LifeLock and Avast merger that I believe satisfied
those that had an adverse feeling about the merger.
We also spent some time talking about a phishing scam someone received asking them
to renew their Avast product even though they were not (yet) an Avast customer.
