Audacity - Still The Best Free Audio Editor 1 hour 24 min ago King Tobbe

Personally, i prefer cryptic crosswords for the same sort of thing, but more difficult yet.

I've been working my way through the Android version of "Cryptic Crosswords" by Mike Kroger.

Advice: If you've never encountered cryptics before, find a description of how the clues are constructed and how to solve them.

Forgive me for saying so, but I believe you are being overly anticipatory and cautious. Why don't you go ahead and boot UBCD from a USB drive and proceed from there? No harm would come from it. If you encounter any problems then we will deal with it from there.

It has been more than ten years since USB memory sticks first became bootable. So in the unlikely event that your computer is so old or simple that it doesn't have BIOS support for booting from a USB memory stick then there are free programs to help provided you have a bootable removable drive like an optical drive (CD/DVD/BD) or floppy disk.

Thank you. One should also be aware of this note from their website though:

"Note that booting a USB memory stick requires BIOS support and is only available on newer machines. You can also expect to encounter more compatibility issues compared to booting from a CD, and *some tools may not work properly when run from a USB memory disk*."

Best Free Folder Synchronization Utility 3 days 23 hours ago AJNorth

The application Unchecky is quite useful in helping to deal with PUPs (such as OpenCandy) that may be included with an application one would like to install. During the installation process, it helps steer one along the path to the options (if they have been provided) to deselect the PUPs that may have been bundled with the app. It also writes exclusions to the HOSTS file, preventing the PUPs from phoning home (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Unchecky.shtml). The app automatically updates itself.

Also extremely useful (in many ways) is the venerable WinPatrol, as another commenter has mentioned (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Popup-Ad-Spyware-Blockers/WinPatrol.shtml).

Both are highly recommended (if not essential) for every Windows box, IMHO.

Time To Update Your Ultimate Boot CD 5 days 3 hours ago Anupam

If you don't want to see ads, please download an adblocker extension for your browse. AdBlock Plus, and ublock origin are two really good ones. It's a must nowadays.

As for the download page, here it is:

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html

When you scroll down the page, you will see two choices from where you can download the ISO. One is P2P, which is for downloading via torrent, and for that a magnet link is provided. Rather than the suggestion provided there of utorrent, I will suggest Tixati, which is clean and free.

Second option is of Mirror Sites, from where, you can download the ISO normally. Remember to click on the first column of the table, which contains "iso", with an icon of download, which should start the download from any of the sites.

Edit: I have added the above information to the article, for convenience of others. I hope Robert is fine with it.

How to Reveal Your Windows Product Key in All Current Versions of Windows 5 days 8 hours ago IrenaRK

Installation of certain softwares was accompanied by a step in which the user was shown a suggestion like Yahoo toolbar, Google toolbar etc.. This was managed by an application called Open Candy. However, not anymore, therefore OpenCandy was shut down last summer.
During installation, Magical Jelly Bean KeyFinder also proposed some toolbars (in the past), which user may confirm or refuse.
Magic Jelly Bean KeyFinder will not install any of unwanted software anymore.

More than, this tool is perfect free keyfinder option. However, it supports less features in comparison with Recover Keys, which our developers created to ease the work of network administrators in large companies, as well for home users. Both key finders definitely helping to save a lot of time and money!

There is confusion trying to figure out how to download because there are so many ads on the page that are distracting, and lead you off to some gnarly sites that make you want to run all your malware scans.

The older 32-bit Free Download Manager was more customizable and consistent, however the current 64-bit version, 5.1.20.5362, has lost the ability to show download progress, and there is no way to prevent accumulating download history, AFAIK (the setting is ignored). However, Firefox does show the newer version as compatible with Electrolysis (multi-process), though it seems much slower to respond to a new download request than the older version.

From newb to expert - best Linux distro for YOU! 1 week 10 hours ago bootneck02

I was a windows user from about 1994 and always updated to the new Windows OS as soon as it came out but with the debacle of Windows 10 and the data mining issue I converted to Linux Mint after trying several other Distro's like Zorin, Ubuntu and several others. I eventually settled on Mint Cinnamon 17.1 and now running Mint Cinnamon 18. I am a PC user and have no technical expertise I am just a PC user but found the experience of moving from Windows to Mint easy and surprisingly easy and enjoyable and now a convert to Linux and especially when you consider the expense of running a Microsoft OS for all the extra software you need to keep it safe and and being to be able to use it where as with Linux it is all free. I do recommend however that users do make a donation to the developers as it helps fund development of the Distro.

Correct. But what's the problem with that?

Another Great Free Survey Creation System 2 weeks 1 day ago oblivion

I like Limesurvey. It's more complex than most of the free offerings out there but it supports decision-based surveys (eg "ask this question only if the answer to question x was y") and can also handle groups of questions as a unit ("ask this set of questions only if the answer to question x was y".)

You can install the complete survey engine on a webserver and it's completely free; or you can develop a survey and have them host it for you -- which costs money, but the first 25 responses in any given month are free and responses beyond that still very reasonable.

Compared to trying to make complex surveys work in a basic list of questions (via page skip logic) it allows you to design a more functional and understandable structure relatively easily and also provides detailed reporting of the results. Limesurvey has a bit more of a learning curve and you need some html skills if you want to go beyond the basic templates that are already included, but the product is absolutely excellent.

How to Fix an Annoying Windows USB Problem 2 weeks 2 days ago CASD

I go to Control Panel-Device Manager- Disable the USB device that has the yellow triangle on it and than re-enable it... Win-10 works 99.9% of the time and when it doesn't reboot fixes it..

I had a similar issue. After upgrading my desktop PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10, on boot it would be pot luck whether my keyboard, mouse or wacom tablet would work. Sometimes they'd work fine, othertimes one would work but not the others. The only solution was a restart - occasionally a hard restart due to having no other options available, after which they would all work again.

Your solution worked for me, and continues to, three or four weeks after I found your page. Thanks Vic.
