Spell check is your friend; best to avoid posting via cell phones.

Tend to use phone these days more than pc
My pc I’m sure is compromised cause when I boot windows and logg in it brings up a command prompt instead of desktop

Good thing I know to type “explorer” to boot desktop 🤨

OK; virus protection software can be your friend. Also, in the control panel, the System and Security menu has a sub-menu that has tools that are very useful for checking for errors and other problems with the computer (of course, do update to the latest version of "Explorer" and download all required MS system updates should be second nature.)

If you have backup your computer a "Mirror Image" of your system & files before it was compromised, then rebuild with that; if not unlikely you can save your data.

Then if your system has a really bad viruses that these anti-virus software programs can't remove, then your most likely recourse is do a restore to "Factory Settings" and then rebuild your system and re-install all updates - of course, this means the complete loss of all data files but that is the price one pays if they get a nasty virus and do not keep a "Mirror Image" of their computer system & data on hand.

-20psi

Tho thinking 30V 10A not enough from reading I’ve done today on forums
Also read need to ground positive side not negative

Maybe need to adjust how I’m trying to create the plasma
Only copper wire can get around here has the enamel coating.

Only need to create a small stream of plasma at base if magnets to see how it reacts with the magnets

At moment got a positive ring and negative ring at base of each magnets where is attached to frame

Is there maybe an easier way to create the plasma
