comment Explaining to computer illiterate users - text vs images of text
Everything we look at is an "image". It´s how it is stored that you are trying to distinguish between.

comment how to see pdf files in firefox window without disabling IDM
Foxit Reader Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape - works for me. For a better answer you´d need to specify which reader you use. I think it may install during the Foxit installation rather than as a separate etension.

comment Is software like tune up utilities essential?
Using such a program means you don´t have to remember all the built in options and makes accessing things like the start-up manager easier. I find "TweakNow" quicker as I only use it every month or so. Others will have their favourites!

Possibly also check for dust build-up in fan or vents. The air flow may be restricted.

comment How to save a section of a pdf
I just tried doing the same in Foxit Reader and it works in the same way using its inbuilt PDF printer. You could try looking in your reader print menu for a similar option.
