SOLVED! What type of RAM does my laptop have?

My laptop has only 4GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to 8. How can I find out what type and speed of RAM I have and If there is a blank memory slot?
During the windows days, I used to use crucial's profiler, but it doesn't work for Linux.
Any advice on an app that shows that info?

Antivirus for thunderbird?

I receive many emails (100+) per day and I'd like thunderbird to be protected so I don't pass along something to my friends who are WIndows users. Is there any extension specifically made for thunderbird?
I have Clamtk installed but it scans folders not emails as they come in.

Re: Gparted wont start

By some miracle, I managed to reinstall it and it now works. That was strange.

Re: Gparted wont start

Thanks. I just used Disks, it isn't bad. I have installed and used Gparted in quite a few distros, but If it doesn't work on LM, Disks seems fine.

I tried out different themes and now the bottom right icons in the panel look ugly. Is there a way to restore to default?

Re: Trying to install LM but it wants a root partition

I finally figured out and now I can choose start up from the boot loader and it shows both UEFI and plain USB, so I'm ok!
Thank you all for the help.

Re: Trying to install LM but it wants a root partition

I'm on an ASUS, I tried F2 and F12, only the former brings me to the BIOS. F12 does nothing. I'm running out of ideas :(
I've enabled legacy mode.
Is there a way to burn the USB key so that it isn't UEFI?

I'm trying to install LMC on an empty partition (the laptop already has a different distro). I choose 'something else' during installation and select the unallocated partition. Once I choose it, it asks for a root partition. I don't know what it means, I tried selecting other partitions but it wont ...
