there are no more files

At first I thought my drive was full. but the error did not make sense. “there are no more files.” So that led me to believe that the PDF I was downloading had issues.

So I tried saving a word doc from one file location to another and I got the same error there are no more files.

I started to panic thinking that perhaps this is how some ransomware started, but fortunately I found that was not the case either.

Google search showed me that this had been a problem with Window 7 many years ago. and when I added windows 10 to my search, it showed me that it was a recent issue also.

What is “There are no more files” error?

“There are no more files” error pop-up mainly occurs on ASUS computers running Windows 10 Pro and Home versions. It has been first registered on June 13, the same day when the cumulative update KB4022725 (OS Build 15063.413 and 15063.414) has been released, and apparently it has been triggered by the mentioned update. The “There are no more files” but prevents PC users from saving files on the local hard drive. The problem is not related to a specific file type as it may occur while trying to save MS Office Suite 2010, Adobe Acrobat X, Adobe Photoshop, photos (.jpeg, .png), videos, and others. The bad thing is that the “There are no more files” error hasn’t been officially confirmed yet and does not have fixes. However, the good thing is that several tech-savvy people grasped the footprints of “There are no more files” culprit and helped many people to resolve it. According to them, this error is usually triggered by ASUS Data Security Manager (ADSM) or third-party security tools.

And I found this as the easiest explanation to correct the issue

Go to Start/Search and type Services.msc and press enter. Find ADSM service, double click it and Stop the service.
Now go to Start/Search and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Program and Features, uninstall ASUS data security management program. Restart the computer.

Since I had never used ADSM, when it asked about Vaults, I have no issue with getting rid of them, since there should not be any.

Thanks to the many tech savvy people that have come before me to tackle this problem.



High Blood Pressure – Hypertension

Because WEB-MD slide show is difficult to read

What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a common condition that will catch up with most people who live into older age. Blood pressure is the force of blood pressing against the walls of the arteries. When it’s too high, it raises the heart’s workload and can cause serious damage to the arteries. Over time, uncontrolled high blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Hypertension Symptoms

High blood pressure is sometimes called a silent killer because it may have no outward symptoms for years. In fact, one in five people with the condition don’t know they have it. Internally, it can quietly damage the heart, lungs, blood vessels, brain, and kidneys if left untreated. It’s a major risk factor for strokes and heart attacks in the U.S.

What Causes Hypertension?

Normal blood pressure readings will fall below 120/80, while higher results over time can indicate hypertension. In most cases, the underlying cause of hypertension is unknown. The top number (systolic) shows the pressure when the heart beats. The lower number (diastolic) measures pressure at rest between heartbeats, when the heart refills with blood. Occasionally, kidney or adrenal gland disease can lead to hypertension.

Prehypertension: A Warning Sign

Almost one-third of Americans have prehypertension. Their blood pressure is consistently just above the normal level — falling anywhere between 120 and 139 for systolic pressure or 80 to 89 for the diastolic pressure. People in this range have a higher risk of developing heart disease than those with a lower reading. Your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes to help lower your blood pressure.

The Hypertension Danger Zone

You have high blood pressure if readings average 140/90 or higher — for either number — though you may still have no symptoms. At 180/110 and higher, you may be having a hypertensive crisis. Rest for a few minutes and take your blood pressure again. If it is still very high, call 911. A hypertensive crisis can lead to a stroke, heart attack, kidney damage, or loss of consciousness. Symptoms of a hypertensive crisis can include a severe headache, anxiety, nosebleeds, and feeling short of breath.

Who Gets High Blood Pressure?

Up to the age of 45, more men have high blood pressure than women. It becomes more common for both men and women as they age, and more women have hypertension by the time they reach 65. You have a greater risk if a close family member has high blood pressure or if you are diabetic. About 60% of people with diabetes have high blood pressure.

Hypertension and Race

African-Americans are more likely to develop hypertension — and to develop it at a younger age. Genetic research suggests that African-Americans seem to be more sensitive to salt. Diet and excessive weight can play a role, as well.

Hypertension and Sodium

Sodium, a major component of salt, can raise blood pressure by causing the body to retain fluid, which leads to a greater burden on the heart. The American Heart Association recommends eating less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day. You’ll need to check food labels and menus carefully. Processed foods makes up the majority of our sodium intake. Canned soups and lunch meats are prime suspects.

Hypertension and Stress

Stress can make one’s blood pressure spike, but there’s no evidence that it causes high blood pressure as an ongoing condition. However, stress may affect risk factors for heart disease, so it may have an indirect connection to hypertension. Stress may lead to other unhealthy habits, such as a poor diet, alcohol use, or smoking, which can contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease.

Hypertension and Weight

Being overweight places a strain on the heart and increases your risk of high blood pressure. That is why diets to lower blood pressure are often also designed to control calories. They typically call for cutting fatty foods and added sugars, while increasing fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and fiber. Even losing 10 pounds can make a difference.

Hypertension and Alcohol

Drinking too much alcohol can increase your blood pressure. Guidelines from the American Heart Association state that if you drink alcohol, you should limit the amount to no more than two drinks a day for men, or one a day for women. They define a drink as one 12-ounce beer, four ounces of wine, 1.5 ounces of 80-proof spirits, or one ounce of 100-proof spirits.

Hypertension and Caffeine

If caffeine can make you jittery, can it also raise your blood pressure? It might have a temporary effect, but studies haven’t shown any link between caffeine and the development of hypertension. You can safely drink one or two cups a day, according to the American Heart Association.

Hypertension and Pregnancy

Gestational hypertension is a kind of high blood pressure that occurs in the second half of pregnancy in women who have never experienced high blood pressure before. Without treatment, it may lead to a serious condition called preeclampsia that endangers both the mother and baby. The condition can limit blood and oxygen flow to the baby and can affect the mother’s kidneys and brain. After the baby is born, the mother’s blood pressure usually returns to its normal level.

Hypertension and Medicine

Cold and flu medicines that contain decongestants are one of several classes of medication that can cause blood pressure to rise. Others include NSAID pain relievers, steroids, diet pills, birth control pills, and some antidepressants. If you have high blood pressure, talk to you doctor about what drugs and supplements you are taking that may affect blood pressure.

‘White Coat’ Hypertension

Some people only have a high reading in the doctor’s office, perhaps because they’re nervous. Some will only have high blood pressure readings sporadically. Those people may have a higher chance of developing high blood pressure, a recent study shows. To get a more accurate reading, take your blood pressure at home, chart the readings, and share them with your doctor. It is also a good idea to bring your home monitor in for a check of the device and your technique.

Hypertension and Children

While hypertension is more often a problem for older people, even children can have high blood pressure. “Normal” blood pressure varies based on a child’s age, height, and sex, so your doctor will need to tell you if there is a concern. Children are at greater risk if they are overweight, have a family history of the illness and if they’re African-American.

Treatment: The DASH Diet

You may be able to lower your blood pressure by switching to a better diet. The DASH Diet — Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension — involves eating more fruits, vegetables, whole-grain foods, low-fat dairy, fish, poultry, and nuts. You should eat less red meat, saturated fats, and sweets. Reducing sodium in the diet can also have a significant effect.

Treatment: Exercise

Regular exercise helps lower blood pressure. Adults should get about 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week. That could include gardening, walking briskly, bicycling, or other aerobic exercise. Muscle-strengthening activities are recommended at least two days a week and should work all major muscle groups.

Treatment: Diuretics

Diuretics are often the first choice if diet and exercise changes aren’t enough. Also called “water pills,” they help the body shed excess sodium and water to lower blood pressure. That means you’ll urinate more often. Some diuretics may deplete the body’s potassium, causing muscle weakness, leg cramps, and fatigue. Some can increase blood sugar levels in diabetics. Erectile dysfunction is a less common side effect.

Treatment: Beta-blockers

Beta-blockers work by slowing the heart rate, which means that the heart doesn’t have to work as hard. They are also used to treat other heart conditions, such as an abnormal heart rate called arrhythmia. They may be prescribed along with other medications. Side effects can include insomnia, dizziness, fatigue, cold hands and feet, and erectile dysfunction.

Treatment: ACE Inhibitors

ACE inhibitors reduce the body’s supply of angiotensin II — a substance that makes blood vessels contract and narrow. The result is more relaxed, open (dilated) arteries, as well as lower blood pressure and less effort for the heart. Side effects can include a dry cough, skin rash, or dizziness, and high levels of potassium. Women should not become pregnant while taking an ACE inhibitor.

Treatment: ARBs

Instead of reducing the body’s supply of angiotensin II, these drugs block receptors for angiotensin — as if placing a shield over a lock. This blockade prevents the chemical’s artery-tightening effects, and lowers your blood pressure. ARBs can take several weeks to become fully effective. Possible side effects include dizziness, muscle cramps, insomnia, and high levels of potassium. Women should not become pregnant while taking this medication.

Treatment: Calcium Channel Blockers

Calcium channel blockers slow the movement of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. Since calcium causes stronger heart contractions, these drugs ease the heart’s contraction and relax the blood vessels. They can cause dizziness, heart palpitations, swelling of the ankles, and constipation. Take them with food or milk and avoid grapefruit juice and alcohol because of possible interactions.

Treatment: Other Medications

Other medications that relax the blood vessels include vasodilators, alpha blockers, and central agonists. Side effects can include dizziness, a fast heart beat or heart palpitations, headaches, or diarrhea. Your doctor may suggest them if other blood pressure medications are not working well enough or if you have another condition.

Treatment: Complementary Therapies

Meditation can put the body into a state of deep rest, which can lower blood pressure. Yoga, tai chi, and deep breathing also help. These relaxation techniques should be combined with other lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise. Be aware that herbal therapies may conflict with other drugs you take, and some herbs actually raise blood pressure. Tell your doctor if you take herbal or other dietary supplements.

Living With High Blood Pressure

Hypertension is often a life-long condition. It’s important to take your medications and continue to monitor your blood pressure. If you keep it under control, you can reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure.


Packer Hail Mary

As a Viking Fan living in Wisconsin, this has been yet another year of torture. This season was to be a step forward for the Vikings, making the playoff, and a missed field goal away from beating the once almighty Seahawks. Instead the season started with a pop of Teddy Bridgewater’s knee. followed by a long list of mistakes, injuries and missed opportunities.

The Packers meanwhile were on the downward trend by the end of last year, Losing to the Vikings for the first time in like 8 years to end the regular season. They did win the playoff game, as losing that game to the Vikings gave them an easier game then the mighty Seahawks. However there is not much difference in NFL teams that make the playoffs. As they say any given Sunday. The Redskins were hot but not consistent, the Packer were a good team but inconsistent without  their star receiver, Jordy Nelson most all of the season. Aaron Rodgers looked frustrated for the first time in all the years I have been forced to watch him. This team was so inconsistent that it took not one, but two plays with no time left on the clock. The first was the play that basically sent the Detroit lions team into the depths of despair as a NFL team. Earlier they had beaten the Packers, at Lambo, looking like they might finally turning the corner, but instead they used this failure to close out the Thursday game against the Packer and the Hail Mary with 0 Seconds on the clock to return the loss column in strong fashion. So back to the hail mary and the play before. The Aaron completed a 19 yard pass and it was lateraled back and back and finally as the clock had run out the Lions tackled Aaron Rodgers. Game Over. But wait, the luckiest team on the face of the planet, if you look close you can see that some skin of a player touched Aaron Rodgers face mask. Flag, 15 yards for face mask. Game does not end on a defensive penalty. One more shot for Detroit to sweep the Packers, and gain some much needed dignity. NOOO, 61 yards the ball is thrown straight up in the air and comes done in the other Rodgers hands, where was the defenders? why is no one just trying to deflect the ball? Touchdown Green Bay.

Cardinals Playoff game

Everyone remembers the hail mary at the end of the game to send it into OT. but right before that hail mary for the TD, Aaron Rodgers basically had another for 60 yards, so one one series he had a 60 yard pass, and a 41 yard pass on two plays! Crazy, but as watching this team reluctantly for the last 20, almost 25 years, I have come to expect this kind of thing. Too many times Brent Favre and the Pack would be down and with only seconds left on the clock, he would wing one out there and low and behold…. TD. But Favre may have had the best career of any Packer QB, but watching Aaron Rodgers now, I suspect Favre may be the second best QB in Packer history. I think that Aaron Rodger might be the best of all time, ALL TIME. better than Peyton, certainly better then Brady. But it is too early for that discussion.

Giant Hail Mary half time

I did not see it, I heard it on the radio. I left the game and the Giants were playing well enough to win, missed a few opportunities to get Big points and settling for FG. But now the Half was winding down, almost to the 2 minute warning. Oops Pack scored, Time for the Giants to get one more TD or FG , take the lead and run the clock down. The Win probability has already started to change, listening to the game, I did not get that same feeling. But when the Giants had to punt again, making no treat and only forcing Green Bay to use 2 timeouts, I figured it was not good. Aaron Rodgers really had not been completing many passes, he had the consecutive incomplete passed on at least one drive, that is usually enough to stop a drive, but there was a penalty in there on the Giants so they got field position out of it. Anyhow back to he final drive of the half. Two runs and one pass and they are at the 50, and on 4th and 2 HAIL MARY…. What in the world?!!? again no one seems to see the ball outside of Cobb?? Rodgers can through that ball far and high, and if they don’t practice that, I am a monkey’s uncle.


The season ended for the Pack, before I could finish writing this. But Atlanta figured out how to beat this lucky team, throttle them so bad, that luck cannot come into play.


Daily Discipline

Daily discipline, something that I have never been good at. I make up my mind to run each day, and eventually it rains or is too cold to go for a run. Or I make up my mind to write a blog post each day, and I forget, and next think I know is that a week or month has passed by. Or I set out to make a personal budget and find receipts pilling up and think that this is a waste of time, besides I am the only one trying to live with a budget, the wife is not.

The one that hurts the most is I plan to pray and spend time with God each day, and even that falls to the side of the road.

Somethings I can do, I remember to go to work each day!?!?

So I have a problem with priorities, when I think or feel the “thing” is important, like going to work, or eating healthy, it is easier to control.

So why the issue with prayer, I do believe in prayer, I really do. But my actions speak louder to me then my beliefs. If appears that I do not believe in prayer as much as I would like to think that I did. For if it was truly something that I believe I in it should be no problem to take the time to pray. I have no problem taking time to pray for someone in need. A person I know, Dan, is sick, really sick… I find myself saying prayers for him fairly regularly, or rather irregularly, but often. I have noticed that Dan has been missing the last two Wednesdays…This saddens me as I know the end is near. Dan has a limited amount of time on this earth, as we all do, but Dan knows his end is near.

This week I learnt of another fellow, who is a teacher and he was told not to teach this year. His doctor told him this because it is his belief that this guy will not last the school year. I give this guy credit, he says that since he feels good he is going to continue to teach, it is what he loves and when his time ends, it ends. I applaud him, when I was younger, I felt as though I would without question do the admirable thing when is comes to situations like this. Do the thing that really makes a difference to other people and how they live their lives. Do the thing that makes the world a better place. I am older now and much wiser, so I know that I do not always to the right thing. If I have time and good advise I still trust that I will do the right thing. But I have also learned that until I am in a situation that I really do not know how I would really react to it.

Sometimes love has changed what I thought was the right thing, to something else that is more loving… sometimes my ideals have softened and I no longer believe what my younger self believes.

I guess the important thing that has come out of all of this is that I try not to judge others based on what I believe is the right thing to do, as I am not in their shoes. I have learned that really truly putting yourself in someone else’s perspective can be eye opening. I have learned that any answer has losers and winners in it. Any solution that is easy it probably not the right one, you might need to look closer. Any difficult solution needs to be handled with great care.



Year in review

Last year 2016, was an interesting year. Trump was elected President with no political experience!?! People seems to not be willing to say that they would vote for Trump, but still did?! Isn’t the Poll anonymous?

Well Politics aside, still a very interesting year.


Cubs win World Series against the Cleveland in 7 games. Way to go Cubbies! Maybe next year Cleveland. My Twins were expected to make to some waves, and started with a horrendous losing streak to start the season. My Vikings nearly defeated the once mighty Seahawks, only a missed field goal kept them from taking the lead late in the game with time running out. The Kicker Blair Walsh then seemed to forget how to kick, and lost his job to some guy named Kai. The team lost the starting QB before the season started, then proceeded to lose just about every linemen if not every linemen for multiple games. Not to mention the old #28 who look rather pedestrian before being hurt. And he again rushed back to only look mediocre on handful of carries.

well that is enough for today.


Stranger Things

A new series on Netflix. Stranger Things

This is a short series (season 1 is eight episodes). that we were able to watch with my whole family. I have a  middle school son whom I consider will adjusted in life.

My wife was given this recommendation from a friend that has three children younger then middle school.

The series is centered around a missing child and a mysterious girl that shows up.

We are half way through the series and it has some very interesting plot lines going on. I am enjoying it and just thought I would shoot out a word of encouragement to check it out if you have Netflix.

Last Supper

This morning we read Mat 27:1-45 as a small group.
This brought up a few questions.
When was the last supper? Traditionally I had been brought up to believe this was Thursday. But one member of our group, who is Catholic, said he believed that it was on a Tuesday. While I was trying to recall why I thought that it was on Thursday, he said that the “Lost Sea’s Scroll’s had proved it was on a Tuesday”.

So I decided to look into it, and this is what i found.

First I recalled just reading an article on the timeline of the holy week on so I called that up.

What Happened on Thursday showed a portion of this timeline below.

This however did not fully satisfy him, although it did bring doubt into his thoughts. For myself I knew what I had been taught, but was open to further study as the timeline of the last supper does not affect my faith in the least.

So when I got home, I began to search and what I found was interesting enough that I thought I would share.

First a simple google search on the “was the day of the last supper tuesday

First result was from catholic education Org


(not) Running

Running can be fun, but it is work, and it is not always a high priority.

Running has taken a back seat lately to many things.

Kids, Swimming championships for the young one, as well as Mountain bike team.

Night times with my wife are important.

Chores need to get finished, some daily, some weekly. Others as needed.

Work, takes 40 hours a week for just about any person, but more and more people are talking about 50-60 hour work weeks.

Volunteering activities.

Running must find a spot in this list and it must find it soon.

If you can’t beat em cheat or change the rules

I live in the packer state, so I am a little biased. Some Packer fans are pompous overconfident jerks. These are the ones that totally forgot the seventies or are too young to remember them.

Some are irrationally despondent. These are the ones that quickly fail to recall this team successfully completed three hail mary passes in one season.

But I am sure that both sides of those fans will jump on board with a rule change if it comes to that.

Following the game, a couple of prominent Green Bay players expressed their dissatisfaction with the way overtime is done in the NFL.

#Packers Clay Matthews On the current overtime rules “Let’s go college rules. Just put us on the 25 or whatever it is and let us go at it.”

— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) January 17, 2016
“Yeah it’s tough, we’ve lost a few of these over the years where you don’t touch the ball in overtime. It’s just the way it goes. It comes down to a coin flip sometimes after a long, hard fought game, back and forth, plays made – bizarre plays made by both teams –and unfortunately it comes down to that.” – Aaron Rodgers,

Strangely enough, the Chicago Bears proposed a rule this last offseason that would have guaranteed each team getting a possession in overtime. The Packers voted against it. Granted, only three teams voted for it, but it’s interesting how quickly the tune changes.

I find it very funny that they voted against it.

800-year-old Bible recovered in western Turkey after smugglers try to sell it – Daily Sabah

This is cool and weird all at the same time.

Two people were detained by Turkish police on Friday when they attempted to sell an 800-year-old Bible.

Police in the western Turkish province of Isparta confiscated the ancient Bible and detained two suspects during an operation carried out on the suspects’ home after they were informed that the two were marketing historical artifacts.

Police said the priceless book was written in ancient Greek and contained images of Jesus and other biblical figures
