Create Random Files For Disk And Internet Testing 1 month 1 week ago Remah

A good point but the current version reduces the randomness so files can be written more quickly. I would expect some compression utilities to be effective with it as the author points out (see the last sentence that I bolded). It would be interesting if you ran your tests against the more random files from the previous version.

The program only generates a 4MB block of random data which it then rewrites with some bytes randomized again. See the Technical Facts section at the bottom of the web page.

Random Content -
Dummy File Creator 1.2 writes random bytes ranging from 0 to 255. However, unlike previous version which generates true random file content, Dummy File Creator 1.2 uses a different approach in random content generation in order to increase the performance of random content generation. Dummy File Creator now will generate 4MB of random data and reuse the same data by altering only some bytes at random locations for each subsequent write. While the result still defeats all of the compression software we tested (i.e. a larger compressed file than the original size), but it is still possible to compress this pseudo-random content if a specifically designed compression algorithm targeted at Dummy File Creator (very unlikely) is used. To design such algorithm, it must use dictionary words with length ranging from 1 to 4,194,303 bytes. Most people will not notice this change, but for people who are developing compressing algorithms, it is recommended to use the previous version which generates true random contents (but much slower) for testing.

Create Random Files For Disk And Internet Testing 1 month 2 weeks ago JohnnyB

A nice utility. However, a file with random content is still compressible. 7-zip compressed a 10MB random content file to 4MB (.7z). The file was uncompressible using the .zip format. Details below.

Generate two 10MB files, "notrandom.txt" and "random.txt." Using 7-zip, compress each file to .zip and .7z formats.

notrandom.txt: 10240KB
notrandom.zip: 13KB
notrandom.7z: 2KB

random.txt: 10240KB
random.zip: 10241KB
random.7z: 4098KB

A New Browser To Rival The Best Of Them 1 month 2 weeks ago i8spombots

FWIW

Was using a Chrome clone previously (SRWare Iron) so cannot compare it to Chrome directly, only to SRWare Iron.

That said, way faster to open (though it appears to do a lot of its work in the background as it is slow to actually appear though Task Manager shows it as running, still, as I said, "way faster" overall).

Memory management infinitely better, Iron had a memory leak, this doesn't....or if it does is very slow. With Iron I needed to reboot every 5 days to reclaim full memory - I'd get a windows has run out of memory warning.

Cons - need to learn/do a new settup & configure routine.

On initial use, though I asked for settings to be preserved on restart, my opened tabs were all gone in close and reopen of Vivaldi (used CTL H to access history and open them again as needed). So maybe install a Session Manager type extension when setting Vivaldi up if you're a tab freak. After that initial reboot it has rebooted flawlessly.

In short, thanks for the headsup on this one. It appears to be a keeper.

Just downloaded. It's more of a general overview book with very little specific hacking information. Searched for "sql injection" and there were two matches with no explanation of what it even is much less an example! Mentions in one sentence that you can encrypt your messages with PGP (which almost nobody uses these days). A very short paragraph on honeypot, but zero info on setting one up, just a reference to google hack honeypot. Indeed, the entire book seems to be mostly a reference for software tools. Just reconfirmed my low opinion of the whole "For Dummies" genre.

Tried that and there is nothing about a pop-up blocker there. I did find out how to get to it though. You need to go to chrome://settings/content, not vivaldi://settings/content. But from all indications from the Vivaldi Forums it doesn't work worth a darn. Since it shows as already enabled on all of my systems and I get constant pop-ups I'm inclined to agree with their assessment. I;ll continue to use Vivaldi for some sites where pop-ups aren;t an issue, but I'm sticking with Firefox for my main browser primarily for it's vastly superior pop-up blocker.

A New Browser To Rival The Best Of Them 1 month 2 weeks ago Rev_Don

It's not as slow as Chrome is, but there is some lag with a lot of tabs. It would also depend on what page is in the tab. I have about 9 that open and it doesn't make more than few seconds difference, but none of the tabs are video heavy (one of the things that tend to slow it down the most). I also have an ad blocker which helps a lot. The only way to know for sure is to try it with your specific set of tabs as there are just too many variables.

I realise this may sound a bit lazy but very busy on the weekend with PC work & cannot afford a glitch if Vivaldi doesn't "play fair" on my PC.

So, can anyone advise if Vivaldi cures my number one peeve with a Chrome based browser, that you have to wait forever for it to open if you retain a stack of tabs's (15 odd) from the previous session? Firefox only opens held tab's when you (re)access that tab but chrome insists on accessing all tab's on the open which kills it for minutes for me. Could never find a fix just lots with the same problem.
Thanks in advance

TeraCopy 1 month 2 weeks ago MidnightCowboy There's a lot to be said for sticking with the built in Windows tools, especially the firewall. For security reasons I use Linux on a daily basis. I have an external drive packed with video and audio files that I then play through my Samsung 4K UHD TV. With the constant changes to data on this drive, from time to time the TV either fails to recognize the files or they play but with constant breakages to sound/video. Using two third party drive tools previously either made no difference or made it worse so I could no longer see the files using Linux either. Plugging the drive into my Windows laptop however and running chkdsk followed by Windows defrag takes some time but works every time. MC - Site Manager. view

Google Updater.
Runs as a service, that's why you see it running all the time.
I use Process Hacker instead of Windows Task Manager, it has much more functionality.
You can stop the service & set Google Updater to manual.
Then update Chrome from the browser itself.
The closest thing to an antivirus I have is Spybot Search & Destroy & Winpatrol Pro.
I use Spyshelter Firewall (paid) & VoodooShield (free,for now).
These two programs will let you know something is trying to run (even if you are updating an installed program).
You can allow, block, quarantine or delete.
Vivaldi does have the option for a regular menu bar.
"vivaldi://settings/appearance/" -choice of Horizontal Menu or Vivaldi Button.
Hope this helps :)

I wouldn't use that program either (the anti-virus). May I suggest, from a very reliable site: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/panda_cloud_antivirus.html

This one doesn't get in your way and there is a way to turn off the ads (popups).

I've been using them for several years now. But keep using VirusTotal for anything you download otherwise.

Sorry, but there isn't anything even close to a pop-up blocker anywhere in settings on mine. Latest version on Windows.

A New Browser To Rival The Best Of Them 1 month 2 weeks ago jonny5tails

'Vivaldi doesn't have a native pop-up blocker'
Go to "vivaldi://settings/content" -similar to Chrome.
Scroll down & you'll see the pop-up blocker.
As far as extensions, I use: UBlock Origin, Disable HTML5 Autoplay, HTTPS Everywhere, LastPass, Flashcontrol, uMatrix & Privacy Badger.
uMatrix is similar to NoScript, but has finer controls with a steeper learning curve.
The latest Vivaldi update (1.7) broke the uMatrix interface & I haven't been able to find a workaround.
It might be something I'm missing in the update.
I rolled back to my earlier version.
Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the heads up, I will check it out (I'm in ver 1 because I use XP)
I am amazed that many people browse the web without something as protective as FF + NoScript
(For those that give it a try, and get annoyed with multiple clicks to allow scripts to run, there is a setting 'Cascade' that makes it a single click)

I have been running without any antivirus for a couple of months now (Avast was slowing things down)
The combination of FF+Noscript plus some care in my emails has kept me safe so far.
I use that XP pc 95% of the day
For really dangerous surfing I use my W10 Pro PC, with Avast enabled, and of course FF+NoScript

'have a lot of ads which pop up'?
If you have the proper extensions, you should have no ads or popups.
Depending on how you set up Vivaldi, your settings, history, bookmarks etal, are available from the panel on the left.
You'll see a bar with an arrow along the left edge & a small rectangle in the lower left corner.
left click any of these & the panel will open.
Look for the gear icon in the lower left corner & it will open the settings in a new tab or window (depending on how you set it up).

uMatrix is similar to NoScript, but has a steeper learning curve.
When I upgraded to Vivaldi 1.7 uMatrix lost some functionality, so I went back to the earlier version until they fix it.
I went from Chrome to Vivaldi when it first came out, & it is my browser of choice as it has many more options than Chrome.
I also use Firefox occasionally, & wouldn't run it without NoScript.

DuckDuckGo is a privacy tool that accordingly removes personalised filtering of search results.

Just wanted to let you know that I had the same problem at first, and that I had found a workaround:

Since you're probably using a chrome extension for your speed dial dashboard, and these chrome extensions change the newtab for *chrome*, just set the new tab page in settings to chrome://newtab (by default it is vivaldi://newtab). Works great for letting me use Momentum (new tab replacement extension) in Vivaldi.

view
Free Windows Desktop Software Security List 1 month 2 weeks ago DavidFB

It's simple, really. A security app should not be compromising your security. All of them have done it at some point. Mozilla is not the bad guy here. Sure you can re-enable WOT but theres a good reason they've disabled it.

It's not that they're tracking your browsing - thats to be expected for something to give you these results. The issue is selling that data to third parties without removing user-identifiable information. And you don't know who those parties are. That's not security.

Google is not a security tool. I, like many others, use DuckDuckGo. It searches Google with minimal tracking. People do give a hoot, I'm afraid. More should.

Mozilla doesn't trick anyone. They disable plugins that they discover compromise your security. Thats a good feature.
Google updates have broken WOT in search results on several occasions. I didn't see such a cry over that.

I fully agree WOT was a great tool and have recommended it for years. As this is probably their funding model, I doubt much will change. As I also mentioned, it's a bad sign when a companies web site isn't behaving properly/ maintained. I've removed WOT.

There are other tools that do very similar but most of them have been bought up and integrated with security suites. Site Advisor into McAfee, for example.

Tried Vivaldi last night and was impressed while setting it up, most importantly because it allowed tabs on the bottom. But then... I decided I wanted a decent speed dial, so I looked for one to rival the one I use in FIrefox, and it doesn't exist, though I did find a couple that seemed moderately useful. HOWEVER, you don't appear to be able to get rid of the one that's built into the browser, and it seems both simplistic and incredibly annoying. Looking online, some people said they're "working on" being able to change it. WHAT?

As Rev_Don says, this AV is not one I would choose either.

Most likely a false positive. Did you download it from the link provided in this article? If so I just downloaded it a few minutes ago and checked it with Virus total, Avast, and Malwarebytes and found no problems at all.

To be quite honest, Total Security 360 is not a good A/V malware program (most experts consider it junk). All of the Qiho (or however it's spelled) apps are suspect at best and harmful to your computer at worst. My recommendation is to dump that, get a REAL A/V program that works better and is more reliable, and continue to try Vivaldi. Check with BleepingComputer.com for recommendations for your A/V Malware protection software.

I just checked the EPIC browser website, and see that it DOES NOT include a built-in VPN. What it DOES include is an encrypted proxy. This seems like a good idea for private browsing, but you will have to provide your own VPN if you want that additional level of privacy.

1) More customizable,

3) doesn't suffer from tab bloat like Chrome,
4) ability to have a minimal gui like chrome or a more old school type menu gui,
5) Better support from developers (like Opera had before they switched to the Chromium engine)

I've been using this browser for a while now, bit more than a year. I never have used Chrome on my desktop--don't like how Google handles people. Otherwise, I like to have alternatives to Firefox and IE, which for a time meant Opera, but I became disillusioned with them. When they switched to the same engine as Chrome I tried the upgrade, but none of my large collection of bookmarks would transfer. I switched back to the old version with the original Opera engine where my bookmarks were still present and used that for a while, because some were saying they lost their bookmarks altogether using the new Opera. And when they complained about it in the forums, they were told if they don't like Opera to not use it, what do you expect from a free browser. Then I heard that some of the Opera people had split off and designed Vivaldi. I was hoping it had the old Opera engine, but at least they stayed true to Opera's original mission, which was to design the browser with the power user in mind, and they won't tell you to take a hike if you don't like when they refuse to fix a known issue.

So if you were ever a fan of Opera, you should like Vivaldi. Take a look at their "Our Story" page for more info on the Opera connection.

I've been using it since the first stable version. It is fully customizable and so far it works great.
Two problem I've encountered so far:
That when I run a full screen applciation such as a game or a media player, after some time I find out that Vivaldi has closed or crashed without any warning and I still haven't figured out why does that happen.
The second is that some rare times it may stop youtube videos (the video area goes green and it need reloading).
However, these days a newer version has been released (v1.7.735.46) and it contains lots of new features and fixes, so I can't confirm yet if the above problems still exist ro not.

A New Browser To Rival The Best Of Them 1 month 2 weeks ago crombierob

I of course use Google search within FF
But I avoid other Google programs like the plague, as the Google updater has slowed my OLD PC to a crawl on at least two occasions.
It was so bad the first time, that I was sure I had a virus, and I lost a weeks work by restoring from a week old image.
The 2nd time, I investigated and found it was the Google updater. Uninstalling that was not simple.
Since then I never install anything Google.
Perhaps that will not be a problem with Vivaldi , as presumably it only has it's own updater ? ?

The other thing I dislike is Chrome's minimalistic interface (aka 'good luck finding the option you are looking for')
Does Vivaldi have the ability to use menu's (the way God intended) ?

Sorry to look a gift horse in the interface or updater,
Rob

PS I only feel safe browsing with NoScript in FF
Does Vivaldi have an equivalent ?

Tidy Your Desktop With A Tabbed Launcher 1 month 2 weeks ago Australia

RocketDock works on my Windows 7 64bit system
It is mainly useful for opening programs and folders via File Manager
I set it up to dock on the right side of the screen, and to Autohide so it doesnt obscure the screen
I also turned off the fancy animations, as they arent helpful for me
It uses 25MB of memory

Advantages: As stated, launcher for programs and folders. Nicer design than sTabLauncher, looks like Apple OS
Disadvantage: Lets you launch an internet browser, eg Firefox, but does not let you open with a specific webpage address

sTabLauncher allows you to open an internet browser, and to specify the webpage opened, eg a news website
RocketDock uses less memory, but because it doesnt launch a browser and a specific website, its less versatile, but is still a great simple and elegant launcher, and I use it now for basic utilities. I use sTabLauncher as a launcher too, including to quickly launch Firefox, opening on specified websites

Both launchers are great, for different reasons

BurnAware Free has been updated to version 10.

It has a new interface now. Also, the third party sofware offered has clearly a "No, decline" option, which is quite good.

Its excellent you have found what works for you, and thats all that matters

For me, on an average day, I use around 25 programs.
Having all these programs as shortcuts in a folder or folders is not a good option for me, as the programs are displayed alphabetically which doesnt suit me, and I dont want to be clicking through the different folders
I like a visual launcher, which groups similar programs together, eg Office programs in one group, internet related programs in another group,

Best Free Disk De-fragmenter 1 month 2 weeks ago doxter

I was surprised not to've seen any mention of the amazing Windows defragger, "Vopt". I've been using it seemingly forever, and thought I'd bring some bittersweet news.

Howard Barry Emerson, author of Vopt and co-founder of Golden Bow Systems, passed away nearly a year ago. As is headlined on the company's website, serials for both versions of Vopt are being offered at no charge. "In accordance with Barry's wish", reads a statement at Goldenbow.com, "Vopt is his bequest to Windows PC users."

Those who've been long-time Vopt users — especially those who've enjoyed personal contact with Barry over the years — feel the loss of his good heart and superlative programming skills.

Thanks for everything, Barry. We miss you....

Upon your...recommendation the other...day (I had wondered, Should I do this, really?) I installed Ulterious--no problem, right? Today (however) I'm getting this Octopodal Solutions\Ulterious Server\Ulterious Agent.exe--from my C:\ drive having prompted, firstly, a 137 MB upload, and, THEN (which I canceled--WONDERING, Why?, here) upload in-progress of 46949 kb Data upload (stopped, meanwhile) occurring, yes? So, I'm...WONDERING here: Just...WHAT have I uploaded to...Bangladesh, truly? Any..."thoughts" upon WHAT'S NEEDED to be uploading MEGABYTES OF...? Whatever--THERE?

Open Control Panel; type power options in search and open Power Options; change the setting to High Performance (or a setting that will not allow sleep); when done with the process, like Defender, reverse this to Balanced or the Option of choice.

How to Fix a Computer that Keeps Waking Up 1 month 2 weeks ago TonyRI

Perfect! New HP Computer was driving me nutty with continuous wake ups. HP Customer support remotely disabled startup services, etc. Told me it was most likely an app. It still kept happening. I restored all setting changes, performed an internet search and found your article.

I never knew about the powercfg -lastwake elevated command (which, btw, works fine with Win 10 Command Prompt). lastwake told me that it was, indeed, my network adapter. Went to Properties > Power Management and unchecked the box "Allow this Device to wake the computer" and my problem was solved with one click!

Thanks so much for this very useful information! You've saved more trial-and-error steps and I really appreciate it! :)

Clean up your Mac computer before it's too late...

I don't need to tell you Mac computers are expensive, because we both know that!

This solution - https://www.remoteutilities.com/ is worth a look for those wanting to access their computers remotely. I know of no other software of this type that offers a free license for 10 or less business computers. It also offers access via mobile apps. I don't miss Logmein.
