2 weeks 3 days ago Freeware Game of the Week (When your favorite Cartoon turned into a Free Game) George.J

You're right, but I've said, Cartoon turned into a "Free" Game, there was Gameboy versions in the past but that costed dollars.

Anyway if you didn't own handhelds and wanted to play on PC, without using emulators what could get better than a free game?

I will try PotPlayer. First, will it play quicktime and mp3? The reason: I just loaded the current version of Opera on XP and it won't play a media link because "quicktime needs updated". I would like to do away with QT anyway.

Then; Do I still need "plugins/extensions" for media that play in a web page? If the media-link default is to play in the browser, I am inclined not to download it.

Favorite Cartoon turned into a Free Game??? Pokémon started out as a card game then a video game. Cartoons were created later to further sell the game.

I thought an actual non-game cartoon had been turned into a game. This is just a re-boot of the Gameboy version.

Thanks for reporting back. I'm glad you like it and it does what you want. I myself have only been using it for a few weeks on Windows 8.1 and I like it too. Previous to this I tried the portable version of Rainlender Lite which was nice but it's 10 times the size of UK's Kalender. :-O

view
2 weeks 4 days ago Best Free Reminder and To-Do Program Misty27

I've used UK Kalender for couple of weeks now & got the kinks worked out. Corresponded w/ the dev, Ulrich, a few times & he was helpful. Only real issue I had, which turned out not to be a Kalender (portable) problem, was I couldn't get it to start with Windows (Vista), even though it was supposed to have that capability.

It was Kaspersky IS (2014) that placed Kalender.exe in a less than most trusted group & was silently blocking it from making any registry change. Once I gave it permission, it worked fine. Just placing a shortcut for the executable in the Windows startup folder will also work (for me).

I've not used it on other OSes, but so far in Vista, it does exactly what it says it will. There's a very short learning curve. Almost everything in Kalender is customizable for font style, size & color; for background color. Similar to Windows appearance customization. Not your Grandpa's computer calender / pop up reminder.

It's a pretty flexible - pop up event reminders - allowing choosing background & text colors; size of text. Most time related fields allow entering custom times & selecting from drop lists. If you want reminders in 7 or 11 minutes / hours / days, you've got it. Edit all aspects of reminders from one screen on pop ups. I find it more intuitive than Windows / Vista calender.

It allows changing calender fonts & colors, for various objects - both on calendar UI objects & entered events. Customizable fonts for almost everything. No more "one font selection fits all" - no sir! :) If you like customizing UIs & entered data, you'll like this.

Haven't used a lot of other reminder apps w/ snooze, but it seems unlikely that others w/ the same functions could have *more* intuitive, straight forward options & menus. It's about as straight forward as most apps get. Or that many free ones would be this customizable for almost anything. Though some calendar / reminders may be *as* good.

I can't vouch for Kalender in other OSes - maybe others can check it out. I have no way of knowing how well it will be maintained in the future.

The main thing I don't like about Google calendar is... Google. There may be other issues w/ it - or not, but I personally don't want to support a company that's made a career from privacy invasion. In spite of lawsuits they've lost over privacy issues, they're ramping up gathering even more *personally identifying* data.

Some may not care, or know about it, or understand why they should care about certain practices of Google & similar companies. That's their choice. This is just general observation - not aimed at Juxxize. If we're (many of us) concerned about adware,etc., rolled in w/ "freeware," but not concerned about anything w/ the name Google attached, I don't get it. To be sure (& fair), there are other companies just as bad as Google - they just don't get the same press.

Those not well versed on Google's seedier side might do a bit of research, before supporting them - especially when there are alternatives.

2 weeks 5 days ago Freeware Game of the Week (When your favorite Cartoon turned into a Free Game) MidnightCowboy

It's only fair to point out that all scanners suffer from false positives but some are worse than others. McAfee and Norton spring to mind as two of the worst offenders. Norton in particular adopts the worse than useless method of "reputation" scoring. This means if they haven't yet seen or scanned a file or URL it must be malicious because otherwise how can they promise to protect their users from "everything".:D Some others also use reputation and/or heuristic scoring which is highly unreliable and pretty much a "cover our butt" solution. All of this is highly confusing for the average user but false positives or not, my advice is always to follow that of your chosen AV's alerts unless you are prepared to research each item independently online and then make an informed decision from that.

George.J: you are right; when URLVoid has 1-2 detections my general rule is also to consider it a false positive, especially if it comes from less-known scan engines. It's just that the detection was from AVG (a good one) and it made me a bit unsure about what to do (but AVG can also have false positives, of course).

MidnightCowboy: after reading your post and seeing your links, I forgot my worries about the game's website. For the future, I'll also take note of Virus Total URL scanning (I only used it for file scanning) and Zulu (I did not know it).

Thank you very much for your comments.

2 weeks 5 days ago Best Free Media Center Software George

Hi delmos
I can only agree with most of what you said. Let me emphasize again that I really like Plex as well and I have used it for quite a while too. The advantages you list are obvious, especially when you want to distribute your media over several devices. The last thing I want to be is unfair towards Plex. It is a great contender and I also urge all interested users to try it out as well. The only reason why I put XBMC a tad above Plex here on TSA is its simplicity. One setup, launch, enjoy. Usability is another plus in XBMC. But again, Plex is a great media center software as well. Thank you for putting that into another perspective.

Update:
After giving the current Plex release 0.9.9 another test drive I must add that all performance issues I had with 0.9.4 are gone. Much improvement there. But there are two more downsides I see with it.
One, for some features an online registration is required. Privacy and data security is not clear to me and might be an issue. You can get around it during setup but the Plex installation is confusing and rather making you believe that an account is required.
Two, the Android Plex Player App is commercial. Not only that, Plex is asking €3.50 for it which is rather high in my opinion. I assume this will be the same for the iOS app. A Blackberry App does not exist.

Best regards,
George

I must admit. Having used both xbmc and plex, plex is the answer to building a htpc.

Xbmc is incredibly unstable. I used it in 2010-2011 only because, even with the constant crashing it was still the best. Xbmc had god awful mouse interactions. I constantly felt lost navigating through all their menus to find the one thing I was looking for. Sure if you're used to it and have that muscle memory for menu navigation it may not be so bad. Also, Xbmc felt dead, releases were sparse and plugins didn't work half the time.

Plex is the best solution I've seen. Immediately pulls down media info without a hitch and the way they split it into two applications makes perfect sense. If you're creating an htpc chances are you don't always care to be chained to your TV to view the last 5 minutes of some media. Thus having a lightweight server to serve it up to multiple devices, remote or local, is great. In addition my CPU never was pegged like yours. A full scan of over 1200 video media files took far less time than you quoted and barely touched my CPU. I'm only using $250 i7 920. In addition, their server is closed source. Xbmc is open source. Thus there is a need to have separate code bases.

All in all, I wrote this because I felt this article was not fair to Plex and users shouldn't run to Xbmc just because there is a misunderstanding with plex's capabilities.

Every AV will have good days and bad days in terms of detection. However, I can tell you that nearly every test will put Avast far above MSE in terms of both detection and protection. That said, it is possible that Avast's detection of certain types of malware is not as good as that for others.

Please let me know how you tested it against worms. How many samples did you use, and what was your methodology?

2 weeks 5 days ago Review: the Cheapest Inkjet Cartridges Sites dpbrick

I'm surprised to not see inkgrabber.com mentioned here, either in the review or in the comments. We have a Canon MG8120 and have been using inkgrabber inks in it for over a year. They work great, and the cartridges all have chips that the printer recognizes. I've not had a single cartridge fail.

Inkgrabber's inks were evaluated on a website that I saw a couple of years ago as being the best of the generics -- very close to Canon's own proprietary inks, and, of course, much less expensive. Inkgrabber also sells Canon brand ink, but the combo packs of their generic inks are where the real savings can be had.

I have had to take the printhead out and clean it -- twice in over 3 years. Printer inks are water soluble and water is what should be used to clean the printhead -- not alcohol as I have seen recommended here in the comments. There are detailed instructions available on YouTube.

I have been testing a few antivirus above and having a slow laptop (C2D 2.0ghz, 4gb RAM), I really care about the performance. And here is my take on each antivirus.

Since Avira implemented the cloud service, I have noticed some slowness (boot time and overall response time) compared to previous experience. Uninstall, and reinstall with cloud service ticked off seems to make it more responsive however it is not as fast as before.

For Avast, there is not much performance degradation on the new program update, everything seems working fine.

For BitDefender, it is very slow, and I still wonder why would people rate the performance as "high". My boot time increase for about 20 seconds compared to no antivirus installed after switching to Bitdefender. Try to give it a whirl, but the responsiveness is worse than Avira (high i/o activity).

AVG as usual, still slow however the recent version seems quite improve than before. Much better than Bitdefender but slower compared to Avira.

Machine with Panda Cloud seems to have the fastest overall response, with boot time only increase for about 3 seconds compared to no antivirus installed. However, my laptop is not 24/7 connected to internet, thus I have trust issues during offline operation.

Currently, in terms of overall performance and boot time impact would be:
Panda > Avast > Avira > AVG > Bitdefender

I have not tested latest COMODO due to time restriction (the last time I evaluate COMODO antivirus is in 2012), can somebody shed some light?

How much is the RAM usage and the boot time increment compared to other AV listed above?

We recommend other better download sites such as Softpedia.com if they host the same applications.

2 weeks 6 days ago How to Recover Files from Windows XP Backups (BKF Files) in a Windows 7 System ToddyC

Windows XP comes with a built-in backup tool, known as NT-Backup utility. But in later version like Vista or 7, no built-in backup tool is available. If you want to recover files from Windows XP backup or BKF files in a system having Windows 7, you need to download NT-Backup utility manually from the internet. Once the NT-Backup utility has been downloaded and installed, you can easily restore your data from BKF files of Windows XP.

Sometime NT-Backup utility fails to restore data from the BKF files if they are corrupted or invalid. In such situation, you need to use a third-party tool that can help you restore your data from corrupted BKF files. I can recommend here SysInfoTools BKF Recovery tool that will fix corrupted BKF files and recover maximum possible data from them. Try it.

Sorry about that, I've corrected the links now.

The links got mixed up with the previous Game of the Week, which was I Wanna Be the Guy: Gaiden.

And it's Pokemon not "Pokeman" :D

Note that the first download you receive after giving them your information is a file which, when you open it, displays a specialized window. The actual installation file is downloaded from THAT window, NOT from the initial download. If that makes sense.

The installation is contained in the second download. So don't delay, thinking you can install the app after the deadline. I suspect you may not be able to.

Same here. So, I email the link to a person and they click on it to read it? I think that's how it works. Guess it will work if you're at work and your emails are read by tech support, but then again.

They often do, but not always. In this case, I confirmed with Universal Extractor that there are no CNET components. (Of course, the fact that Download.com does that sometimes has WOT and other implications.)

The truly intrepid could also look at that installer and roll their own version of it from the real installer by deleting unwanted components.

I'm confused; you mention "Game Jolt" (GameJolt) "gamejolt.com", which your link does lead to, but then the links you display for the Pokeman Home page is "pokeman3d.net", but the link takes one to "kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg" which is not Pokeman, at all, but "I Wanna Be The Guy" which is described as a nail-rippingly difficult platform adventure. The link displayed for the Pokeman Download is "pokeman3d.net/dowloads" which takes one instead to "http://gamejolt.com/games/action/i-wanna-be-the-guy-gaiden/8598" which is indeed on "GameJolt", but not the download for Pokeman, but for "I Want To Be The Guy"

After looking around on "GameJolt" I did indeed find the page for "Pokeman3D" with a download link "http://gamejolt.com/games/adventure/pok-mon3d/10545/#"

And I researched the addresses you displayed and they do indeed lead to a "Pokeman3D" site: http://pokemon3d.net and also the downloads page: http://pokemon3d.net/downloads.

Will the real "Pokeman3D" please stand up! Thank you, for the post.

MikeR,
Thanks for the lecture.
Where did I in any way express myself derogatory or even only questioning about intentions of the Universities and/or the contents of courses?
When I tried to sign up there was NO BREAK at all between account sign up and the request for payment.
In the meantime I got the account verification email, have logged in on EdX and yes, I could sign up for a course without verification and without payment.

In the review I mention that the only reason I even bothered to say that the protection level has not been shown to be identical with the paid is that I cannot use the results for the paid in my analysis. I think that makes sense to put that there. Without it many users would accidentally compare it with the results for the paid version.

As mentioned previously, I do believe that Bitdefender Free is a very good product. If I did not believe that I would have removed it from this review. I did that with MSE, which was previously recommended. As for putting in additional information about Bitdefender Free, please provide me with your recommendations about the type of information which could be added. This sort of information will likely be very helpful for my next re-write.

I did assume that you were the same naren from the Comodo forums, although I was not certain until you just confirmed it. I do appreciate your comments, and I also hope you are beginning to better understand my position. Comparing AV products is a very difficult task, and there is no one perfect approach.

Thank you.

That is a strange issue. I suppose the best approach, assuming you would like to try Bitdefender again, would be to ask that question in their forums. However, if you're happy with Avira then I suppose there is likely no need.

If you have any questions about any of the other AV's listed in this review let me know.

Thanks.

I do think it would be unfortunate for eikelein's comment to go unqualified (excuse unintentional pun.) EdX is a stunning joint venture by Harvard and MIT; the expertise / experience that goes into its learning provision is outstanding. EdX makes very clear the following:

"EdX courses are free for everyone. Some courses have a fee for ID verified certificates of achievement but are free to audit. Others offer a free honor code certificate of achievement to anyone who meets the completion requirements."

If for the purposes of certified vocational training, some folks actually want all of that for nowt, then they're obviously not that interested in building a career: a qualification that costs nothing is inevitably going to be worth nothing in a competitive employment market.

For those of us looking -- for whatever reason -- to broaden our span of knowledge, EdX is. . . Superb. BIG thanks to Rob for flagging up its existence to a wider audience (and for reminding me to go back and resume a "DemoCourse" I parted company with some time back due to pressure of other commitments.)

I didn't know about this site. Nice find!

One point of clarification: Courses on this site are free to AUDIT. No Certificate of Completion is issued in this case. The site help does state there is a progress indicator you can print from within your account area for audited classes, though.

This point is probably of no significance to a majority. But there is a distinction.

Keep up the good work!

ClassicShell works for me.

All I need is to pile more unnecessary cr@p on my machine. Especially when my objective is to stay rid of the Start Screen. This "Start Screen" should never even have been applied to PC's in the first place. In fact, I think originally it was not intended to be. Well, that's just my opinion.

Just my 2p-worth of experience with Bitdefender Free AV. After I installed it I could no longer print to my networked printer. The documents just sat in the queue and never printed. Uninstalled BD and all was well. I even tried reinstalling the printer after BD, but it still didn't work.
Decided to put Avira on instead and have had no problems.
I did a quick web search for problems, which only threw up issues with the full Internet Security Suite and its Firewall - which, of course, isn't part of the free AV prog. I guess I could have dug around some more, but life's too short.

We we're on the same plan before our upgrade, the plan was up to .5 Mbps, and she's still ahead in download speed, getting a max. speed of 80 kb/s, while my download speed on that plan was on max. of 60 kb/s.

The review on WinX DVD Ripper has been updated. Some readers here complain that this ripper cannnot rip encrypted DVDs at all. But if you load the movie by clicking Folder, it will do. :)

However, it doesn't support strongly encrypted DVDs. How to judge? I'm not sure. Just try it yourself.

In addtion, DVDFab changed their marketing strategy recently. One of the changes is:
DVDFab HD Decrypter "Copy just some old DVDs/Blu-rays"

Maybe they've changed it for a long time? I tested it with an old Disney movie UP and it worked well. My new DVDs will arrive soon and I'll test it later. The review will be updated accordingly.
