I haven't tried it yet, but:

I'd imagine that you could install Virtualbox & then point it to this DVD, as an ISO on your "real" computer?

Then, you'd be able to boot to Windows (if you must ;) & launch the ISO when you required a safe internet connection.

I'd appreciate if those more knowledgeable than I could please comment?

I guess this would be the best place to share video download software for both windows and mac users, but I am just finding this online application can also do the trick with ease. No signup, registration or any installations. The only drawback is that it has daily download limits. Users have to be the premium member for unlimited downloads.

Qihoo have recently done an update an in the What's New notes have provided a link to fully explain each of the permissions people have concerns over: http://goo.gl/3a2mCd I'm currently using Sophos but may end up switching to 360 eventually.

P.S. Also, I was looking at CM Security by KS Mobile https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cleanmaster.security which seems a very intriguing AV which also does well in the independant Av-Test.org results. Another one from China which has been around for awhile though it lacks anti-theft it's claims sound promising.

P.P.S. Has anyone else noticed the lack in web/facebook and twitter updates for Trustgo though they did update the app recently? Looks like everything's been left since the middle of last year but all still works and still performs well in the test results.

I yesterday cleaned a PC that was infected by some malware. The PC had had first Ad-aware and then AVG. Both saw the beast, tried to remove it, but it kept coming back. Suprisingly Hitmanpro found nothing. I then installed Webroot trial and it killed the beast. Registry remnants I removed with Autoruns.

Webroot trial is a very good tool indeed.

2 weeks 3 days ago A Complete Operating System Optimized For Anonymous Surfing Australia

Thanks for the great Hot Find !

Interesting concept
Im new to anonymous surfing and Tor (which I have heard about for years, but never touched)
So be gentle
Do Tails allow your IP number not to be broadcast to the internet at all ?
What other advantages are there to anonymous surfing with Tails in plain English ?

---Is there a simpler (portable if possible) Windows freeware application with Tor protection ?------------
---ie avoiding having to do a separate Linux bootup ?------------

Booting into Linux means that you have to devote your entire computer to internet browsing
This is difficult if you also have work to do with other Windows programs at the same time
The way the DVD loads Linux almost demands that you use a separate computer to do your anonymous browsing

Im betting the majority of us want as little to do with Linux as possible, apart from this anonymous browsing function, so dont suggest Linux word processing programs, image editors etc. Have you tried printing with legacy hardware with Windows drivers, on a Linux system ?

Im dreaming, but it would be much better if this DVD could log into Linux on a virtual drive, flawlessly connecting to the internet via this virtual drive, and running concurrently with Windows programs
Then we have perfection !

But still a great find for those who want some anonymous surfing before/after doing other work on their computers !

Thanks for the Hot Find ! A great proportion of Windows users continue to use Office

For the record, disableware like the above recommendation Key Rocket is not true freeware

I would be surprised if there wasnt other true freeware alternatives to make Office run even more smoothly

Maybe I am missing something, but my humble version of Word, Word 2003, already has hints when you use the menu, regarding the associated short cut key combinations, eg Open.. (Ctrl + O). Isnt a popup a little excessive ?

Perhaps we can have a distinct thread for time saving Office addons. Maybe I should be the reviewer ; )

Thank you moderators for your often unseen work in making techsupportalert the "go to" site for freeware

Sometimes feelings get hurt when heartfelt recommendations by members are denegrated as "spam" by moderators - I've been there done that

However, I totally agree this site should be a totally commercial-software free zone

Thank you for your input.

The moderators use specific data to determine which posts are likely to attract spam and which not (unless removed or edited), the details of which we cannot discuss here for obvious reasons. On bad days attempts to spam are around 50,000, yes, that's fifty thousand. Much of this is dealt with by automatic filters but the rest has to be sorted manually by myself and the other moderators who collectively spend hours on this marvelous topic every week. :D

If members feel that a commercial reference is relevant to a particular topic they can start a thread for it in the forum, but spam magnets in the comments will always be strictly controlled.

By all means members can communicate whatever commercial software details they feel are appropriate to other members using the site's PM facility. MC - Site Manager.

MC, I've been a donating supporter of this site for many years. I'm deeply grateful to everyone who makes it happen, including you, and I understand the need to eliminate unnecessary work for the volunteers who kindly donate their time. As a user and promoter of freeware and open source software, I'm glad that this site focuses on noncommercial software.

However, I was surprised and uncomfortable to encounter the idea that we can't even MENTION the name of a commercial product during a discussion. This led me just now to review the forum & site rules (http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/announcements/3617-forum-...). Here's rule 18:

"References to commercial software : Members/visitors may refer to commercial products in either forum posts, or main site comments, but may not include links** to them. The content in such posts must be relevant to the topic being discussed, and not posted as an endorsement for promotional purposes, or discuss the features and abilities of a commercial product."

Please consider either revisiting your decision or updating the rules to reflect current practices. Many thanks!

Brilliant article !!

Thank you for introducing me to Sandboxie !! What an excellent piece of software !! Have been playing with it now for a few days and all I can say is that it says and does what it promotes..

You can also drag 'n' drop programs from your desktop and start menu straight onto the Sandboxie Control Panel and it isolates that program..

Eg; open the Sandboxie Control Panel, click "start", then drag 'n' drop notepad / calculator..

Tweaked it the Sandboxie settings so I have a fluro-green bar around my web-browser and applications that are sandboxed (green for 'good')

Once again, top stuff and top article and it's so easy to use !!

Im using ZiX right now : http://www.deviantart.com/customization/skins/media/aimp/

"I don't recommend downloading from the main website because it links to a download site (Brothersoft)" well this is false info there's no Brothersoft at all,they always had their main download on Programki.net an russian site for software download, and its clean and safe.

There's download page at FileHippo : http://filehippo.com/download_aimp/ so its not that hard to find good download link.Never had AIMP setup bundled with something other than clean music player.

"Security concerns, requires patience finding features" also i don't know from where this came from its easy to use as any music player there's menu and subcategory for everything.

Overall i think its ***** software but as i sad its my opinion.

Thanks, I have added most of your suggestions. However, I did not add a list composed solely of 7-zip files because from what I've been told there are vendors that only accept zip files. Also, Gmail will not work with this list as it will reject it as spam (because there are too many recepients). At least that was the behavior previously. I have mentioned that in section A1.

Let me know if you have any questions, or further suggestions. This is very helpful.

Thanks.

2 weeks 4 days ago How to Report Malware or False Positives to Multiple Antivirus Vendors BillR

Four small suggestions:
1. Expand problematic webmail list: "Hotmail/Live/Outlook".
2. Refer webmail users back to earlier discussion of which services work and why (just as a parenthetical remark like "(see A.1. for restrictions)"). I know it is only a couple of paragraphs above but many of us skip to just what we think we are looking for.
3. Offer a GMail (and Outlook.com(?) and others(?)) webmail only expanded 7-zip list since such users can't submit a .zip executable. I would completely understand if you did not want this additional maintenance task, nor is opening a single purpose AOL account difficult. I'm not sure how many people would avail themselves of this but it would make reporting easier for that group assuming _many_ companies on the zip list would also process a 7-zip file even if it is not officially listed. (I may have talked even myself out of this idea.)
4. Explain star/asterisk in the legend section (above table) even through it is also appropriately explained in the text below the table. Even when I remembered that I'd seen an explanation I couldn't find it because I searched on "asterisk" and "*" but forgot "star". Something quite simple would do:
* Incomplete information; assistance needed (see discussion following table)

Big thanks for both the original article and all the on-going tweaking.

2 weeks 4 days ago Best Free Antivirus Software Chiron

I do not want to overwhelm the reader with too many more AV software. The ones I have listed are all very good, and have good track records. I may be adding another in the future, but only because of results from testing organizations. I am still working on that.

The reason I have not listed other testing organizations is because most concentrate on detection and removal. To me I do not care about detection or removal. What I care about is preventing removal from being necessary, regardless of how it was prevented. Sadly, there are very few with a proven track record.

As for performance, I would like to add performance information. However, as MidnightCowboy mentioned, there are too many variables to make this really useful. However, if I could find multiple reviews from organizations with a proven track record, and they all happened to find more or less the same sort of thing, I may include that information. That said, I am not confident I will be able to find that. If you find tests such as that, from reputable organizations, please let me know.

I have not added a changelog to this article, although I will now that you have asked, as it is still very much in flux. I will add that once I have gotten this article more or less the way I want it.

As also noted by MidnightCowboy, the problems with the majority of reviews is that they are not very quantitative, or if they are they use only one source. There is a reason I chose to reference three organizations for this review. It helps to make my recommendations more neutral. It seems that many tests just rank them in the order they particularly like them. I would like to use more tests. The problem is finding ones which are relatively real-world and from testing organizations with a proven track record. If you know of more please let me know and I will look into that.

Also, I am planning on adding false positive information in a future version. However, like I said, this article is currently in flux. It will always be providing you the best information I currently have, but it will not be entirely complete for a while.

If you have any other questions, or suggestions, please feel free to ask.

Performance tests are meaningless because there are just too many variables between machines. I currently have two desktops and a laptop installed with Qihoo 360 and the program behaves very differently on each as you would expect considering the different hardware. Even knowing this however has no bearing on how well protected someone might be using any particular antivirus, and this should always be the focus of our review here.

We are also not interested in referencing the opinions of other sources except those with a proven track record in independent testing such as AVC and AV-Test. The amount of bias shown in some media reviews towards commercial programs for instance is laughable and I wouldn't risk trusting my security to some blog or a YouTube review that chucks 50 samples at a program and then says it's either good or bad. Even Wilders banned the publishing of such amateur results because as with performance tests they are meaningless in terms of reliability and security. MC - Site Manager.

Good article. You can also copy a file and move it without errors. Careful with several at once as it can move faster than it can copy and that WILL make errors :))

COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE - Performance (speed/load/overhead; not detection rate) on a specific system with slightly tweaked antimalware settings will _not_ necessarily match the performance on a reference test system, however performance is one of the easiest tests to run and quantify so many reviews focus on those results (though the methodology may be slightly lacking). Anyone interested might start by looking at the reports from the organizations Chiron lists and then add reviews from several major magazines. A few bloggers and themed sites also appear to have reliable results. 30 minutes of focused(!) review probably will suffice to supplement Chiron's summary. Just remember that sometimes changing a few settings can have a tremendous affect on performance (and detection).

REVIEW CHANGELOG - Please consider adding a very brief changelog (perhaps truncated by a major rewrite). Your exemplary research and maintenance of posts make a changelog even more useful because you do make both small and large revisions and some of us would like to know when your evaluation changes.

REFERENCES - Please consider adding a few additional references to supplement this review. The references might provide supplemental/supporting details, offer a radically different opinion, or address areas not covered. The first four that come to my mind are some other performance reviews, reviews that you rejected for inclusion (perhaps annotated), a list of free antivirus products that are available for commercial use, and a list of (some) other products that have not been included in the review because of lack of comparative quantitative tests (or a link to the big AV list?).
Broader licensing example:
http://www.raymond.cc/blog/free-antivirus-for-corporate-commercial-and-e... (2013?)
http://www.geekomad.com/2013/09/5-free-antivirus-software-for.html (Sept. 2013)
Other comprehensive comparative reviews example:
[testing-org-xyz.org] (Recent reviews are only available via expensive subscription and dissemination is restricted)

REGARDING BitDefender AV Free: "lack of customization" --> virtually no customization or control.

FALSE POSITIVES: I concur with Chiron's emphasis on prevention then detection however achieved but so far I've had much more frequent problems with FPs than infections (that I know about). Of course, one major infection can be catastrophic (e.g., recent disc encrypting ransomware).

The other two are AegisLab and VirIT. I will look into these and see about adding them. I also found out that Threattrack is related to Vipre. I thus added that name next to Vipre so that if users are searching for that vendor they can still find it in this list.

Regarding webmail users: I think a comment is a good idea and will encourage some additional reporting. It is actually quite easy to zip a file and send it provided the installed AV doesn't interfere. I'm glad you included the 7-zip list but it only adds a few vendors.

Tedshony, the default settings sandbox is designed so it ll be easy for first time users to start using Sandboxie immediately after installing the program, you really don't have to make changes to settings right away. I believe first time users should use the sandbox with default settings for a while and only make changes when they know what they are changing and the reason for making the changes.

For convenience and security, the only changes in settings that I recommend you do after installing Sandboxie for the first time are the following:

1) Set the sandbox to delete on closing.

2) For convenience, I recommend you allow bookmarks to be saved out of the sandbox.

3) Also for convenience, set the sandbox to allow downloads to be recovered out of the sandbox.

Important: set your browser to recover to one of the folders that are in the Quick recovery window. Otherwise, recovering files might seem like its not something smooth and you ll get frustrated. If you set it up correctly, recovering files works perfectly.

As a new Sandboxie user, you should know how antiviruses interact with Sandboxie.

http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?FAQ_Virus

Let me finish saying that Sandboxies default sandbox was created with first time users in mind, it is well balanced (security and convenience).

Regarding Toolwiz TimeFreeze. Light virtualization programs are great. I use them as well. I use this kind of programs for testing other programs and Sandboxie (Application sandbox) for security.

I ll give you a piece of advise regarding TTF or any other LV programs. It is safer not to save all changes. It is better to use the program to drop all changes after rebooting. If you try a program under TTF and you like it, install it after rebooting.

Should have mentioned COPY in that review - friendly user interface, fast upload/download (definitely faster than Dropbox!), free unlimited 20 Gb if you sign up here https://copy.com?r=yPeZ9L as of today the most generous free storage you can find. I personally switched to Copy after using Dropbox for over a year and I love it.

3 weeks 1 day ago An Introduction and a Quick Guide to Sandboxie Anupam

I know Sandboxie has many settings, which people find a lot to go through initially. I too had that problem in the beginning. That's why I thought of writing this article, which will help people set up Sandboxie in a quick way, with the necessary settings. You have to spend some time reading the article though.

Toolwiz TimeFree is an excellent software no doubt. But, so is Sandboxie. Both are good in their own ways.

Toolwiz TimeFreeze has the advantage that it's easy to use with no learning curve at all. It's perfect to test out different software. All you have to do is reboot and the changes are gone.

But Sandboxie has it's own advantages too, and is specially good for browsing. With Toolwiz TimeFreeze, you have to apply all the changes into the system at once, or discard them all. Whereas, with Sandboxie, you can just take out a file, or files, and you do not have to commit all the changes to the system. Like, you are browsing, and you downloaded a file.. you can take it out to your real system with Sandboxie easily, but you cannot do that with TimeFreeze. Also, with TimeFreeze you have to reboot the computer. Suppose you tested a software running TimeFreeze... you didn't like it. You have to reboot the computer to get rid of the changes. Whereas with Sandboxie, all you have to do is empty the sandbox and it's gone.

Both the software are excellent, and both have their uses. For day to day browsing, I would certainly prefer Sandboxie. For system wide testing and other purposes, I use Toolwiz TimeFreeze.

I tried Sandboxie and the options and settings feel lik a maze. Too many settings where I'm not even sure what it's doing.

Toolwiz Timefreeze (freeware) is as simple as it gets. One click starts timefreeze and isolates all changes in a virtual sandbox. One click stops timefreeze and you have the option of keeping all the changes OR dropping all the changes (which automatically restarts your computer).
That's it.

I havn't used Timefreeze long enough to give it a 100% endorsement. But used it for a few days downloading files, deleting files, etc. ..Selecting both options to keep or discard changes and everything worked as advertised.

The links are broken because the software distribution deal that Microsoft had with Digital River expired this month and the latter's download page no longer exists (bummer, right?).

All these downloads have been transferred to the MS Store, meaning most of them are no longer available for free unless you provide a "proof of purchase" of such products.

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?

3 weeks 1 day ago Best Free Media Player shawnz

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

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.
