Hi, I've been a user of Kingsoft Office for a few years and agree it's the closest to MS office but reading some comments here about the new upgrade, "WPS Office 2014" being a paid only is not so. I upgraded but theres still a free version called 'WPS Office 2014' and a paid one. I have 2014 and it's free.

I registered, using my email. But when I went to download the program, it asked for a username and password. I tried my name, my email, my first name only, and I tried the registration code for the password. Nothing worked, so I can't download the software. Does anyone know how to figure out what my username and password are? Or maybe they just aren't offering this any more?? Thank you.

Excellent article! Thank you. Just one question....

Aside from aesthetics and personal preferences is there any IMPORTANT differences that should influence a newbies choice of distros and DEs? For example: are any of them optimized for specific purposes such as gaming, Photoshopping and high definition content streaming or overly simplified for newbies and basic internet and email type usage?

I tried Allway Sync a few years ago and found that it strewed database files all over my hard disk. As a means of keeping track of files in each folder and helping to manage collisions etc it creates a database of all the files, dates etc and stores this database file in each folder.

At the time I decided I didn't want that so I didn't use the software. I am interested to know if it still works in this way.

1 day 20 hours ago Best Free Screen Capture Tool Misty27

Looking for a screen capture that specifically has a couple features / behaviors.
1) When adding multiple text boxes on one screen, it (can) remember the last selection whether to use "solid fill" on the text box background. Without having to re-select "solid fill"(color) - every time.

2) At least on the same screen, it can remember the last text box background color used & *not* make you re-select a background color each time (assuming you don't want to use white).

3) For basic drawing / annotating / text boxes, the prgm will allow going back & editing *most* objects - at least if the screen (file) hasn't been saved & closed.
Certain capture proggies, if you even leave the separate "drawing" mode (but the file's still open), there's no editing anything.
Like Faststone Viewer - once you click OK in "Draw Board," (opens a separate screen), NO more editing objects.

4) Better if it's not super complicated prgm (just to add simple text boxes, arrows, etc.)
Screenshot Captor may ? do most on my list, but for fairly simple annotation, it's way overkill & I don't find it intuitive (on many things).

I used a bunch. I liked PicPick in the past, but it won't do the # 1 & 2 above (not sure if past versions did). It's time wasting - reselecting the same text editor options you've used every time.

Thanks.

2 days 3 min ago Best Free Drive Cloning Software bobk48

Scoop:
Worked perfectly, bit of learning curve in removing the old drive, but the new one went in without incident. On first boot into the new cloned disk, it wouldn't boot, and went into some repair loop. But on second boot, it was as if I had the original old disk in there! Beautiful. I forgot to look at the instructions for how to clone the partitions into larger-sized ones on the cloned drive. But then I booted into GParted from a CD I have of it, and used GParted to partition that space and format it as NTFS. So now I have a C and D logical drive on my machine, works for me.
I only work in UNIX, PC-BSD 10.1, Solaris 11.2, OpenIndie.
Thanks again for your excellent and considerate information and help!

2 days 12 min ago Best Free Drive Cloning Software Scoop

You're welcome :). I have a couple of SATA hot-swap racks in my Desktop PC so it's easy for me to test cloned HDD's occasionally.

My Toshiba Laptop is a 2011 model so it's the older (thicker) style Laptop which has an easy HDD access bay.

Hope your cloning test goes without issue. I've had good luck with cloning's over the past 3 years with Macrium and to a lesser extent, Clonezilla.

With about 85 cloning's on 3 PC's over 3 years, I've only had 1 failure with an MBR corruption problem.

Since my failure rate is about 1%, I only test (boot up on a newly-cloned HDD) every 4-5 cloning's.

Scoop:
Very kind of you to mention this to me!
Thanks!
In order for me to test the cloned drive, I have to open up the back of the Sony VAIO all-in-one, kind of a pain. My previous testing of cloned drives with Clonezilla was done on an HP Proliant Microserver that had 4 open drive bays with trays that could be changed out in about 30 seconds. Easy to verify the cloning of PC-BSD 10.1, Solaris 11.2, OpenIndiana, etc. All UNIX machines.
I will try replacing the drives this afternoon, and report on the results.

2 days 4 hours ago Best Free Drive Cloning Software Scoop

Bob,

Just to let you know, you can't boot a Windows PC from a USB HDD that is attached via USB (even though it's attached with a USB/SATA Enclosure or Adapter Cable). The Windows boot HDD has to be connected via your internal SATA PC port to boot into Windows.

I've cloned from a 500Gb HDD to a 1 Tb HDD in the past with successful results so your cloned HDD should be a complete bootable HDD when you connect it into your SATA port on your PC.

Thanks for the excellent post and comparisons. I downloaded Macrium Reflect Free in order to clone an entire 500 GB Windows 7 Pro internal SATA hard drive onto a 1 TB drive that was attached via USB external enclosure. It gave me the option to clone the disk onto the larger drive, I wanted it bootable in case the old 500 BG drive dies. It expanded one of the partitions to take up the difference in space available.
I have not tested it yet, but I am going to do this testing by trying to boot the computer ( a Sony Vaio all-in-one) from the USB external drive. The BIOS has the option to do this.
I tried Clonezilla, another excellent piece of software, but the computer would not boot from the cloned disk. Clonezilla has cloned entire bootable system disks for PC-BSD 10.1, but not Solaris 11.2.I have not tried Clonezilla on any LINUX systems.

1)Still only on version 1.0, I dont risk any of my data to recently written software
2)There is no evidence that a lot of the code isnt taken directly from TrueCrypt, and so is jut an imitation product. Hard to say

@ Geekomatic,

Pretty much duplicates my own experiences although when we were servicing live customers the majority of trashed systems were related to the use of registry cleaners or similar tools and not infections.

Another humorous side to this, I use a small local ISP and they introduced a rule to their contract stating users without one of the antivirus programs on their recommended list installed would receive low priority for service calls. This because (according to them) a significant number of connectivity issues were being caused by infections. As their network often fails I went along with this (choice of 5 commercial products). After some time I queried the result and they said the rule had been removed because it hadn't made a jot of difference. :D MC - Site Manager.

@MC,

I've been running Linux full-time for the past 5 years. Prior to that, I dabbled in the live cd's to get my feet wet, so to speak. I have a business of computer repair & upgrades which is basically due to MS. 90% would be virus or reinstalls to bloated machines with the other 10% being actually hardware issues (PSU, etc).

I try to mention Linux Mint to clients but people are very resistant to change (especially many older people). They'd rather deal with the issues of Windows than change.

The crazy thing is that about 80% of people don't do much more than email, web browsing, music & photos...which Mint runs and handles brilliantly.

Oh well, all I can do is try, right?

The major change - they would start tracking what sites you visited, and deliver content based on that tracking. Even if you don't mind that type of Privacy invasion, the fact that they tried to sneak it onto my computer, caused me to drop Avast and switch over to AVG, also highly rated. I've not had any problem using AVG, and it has certainly blocked numerous attempts to 'violate' my computer.

It also has a slightly higher detection and removal rates and Avira does a very good job so it's my preferred free antivirus until something else comes into the picture.

A good comment Crombierob. Saving a web page in mhtml or mht format is one of the handy methods for archiving or sharing as it contains everything in one single file.

About the file size, if a web page contains a lot of images, the resulting mht file can be larger than a scrolling capture saved in jpg format.

When you save a web page in mht format, it usually converts images to text using the Base64 binary-to-text scheme. According to Wikipedia, "the final size of Base64-encoded binary data is equal to 1.37 times the original data size..."

To test it out, try upload an image to this online site http://www.base64-image.de/, then copy and save the Base64 string as a text file for gauging its size.

Looks like fun, but only designed for Google Chrome browser, which I don't use. The interface is not the same in either Firefox or IE so doesn't have the appearance or functionality that you see in the tutorial. Disappointed; this is one reason I'm not fond of web-based apps anyway.

I like Avast, but the only two problems I had with it were that it always wanted to uninstall legitimate Chrome browser extensions, and the ads when an upgrade was available, which had the effect of misleading my less adept family and friends to click the wrong link and install the trial version instead of the free version. I use BitDefender Free now - no ads at all, and minimal user interface, at the cost of all the bells and whistles that Avast (and others) come with.

See my very recent comment on saving as .mht instead.

Being open minded, I thought I would install Greenshot and capture a scrolling web page, and then compare the size of my .mht vs the image capture.
And lo and behold it cannot scroll FF (as bawldiggle points out)

If anyone is interested in comparing the size of my .mht with a scrolled capture, could they capture this page, and report back as to the size of your image file.
My .mht of this page is 515KB

Rob
PS I just created a PDF, It is a bit smaller, but is horrible to read compared to the .MHT (the .mht is identical to the live web page)

I have come to really respect Avast Free. I now load it for anyone without AV- as it has so many pluses:

The verbal side of it is fantastic. You know when things occur because you hear it. You know it's functioning & updating. Most of all you know it's still "active".

I cannot tell you how many computers I am called to repair that have expired or knocked offline AV! In MS's infinite wisdom (NOT), they decided it was a wonderful idea to "hide" all the icons behind a tiny arrow that most don't know about...so, they don't know their AV is off. First thing I do is "show all icons" & explain why.

I also like that Avast warns about updates to other programs- very good. Low resource use, as well.

Overall, it's an impressive product & I'm happy to recommend it personally.

Cheers

Why are you all printing scrolling web pages ?
The best way to save web pages is to save them as .mht
That saves as a single file with that extension.
Whenever you need to view it, you just double click it, and the full web page appears in your browser (even if you are on Mars, with no internet connection)
IE has been able to do it for decades (mind you I have been avoiding IE for decades)
In FF you can get the maff extension, which can save as .mht
I have saved a million web pages that way, over the decades.
If I double click it, mine will open in FF (thus I can continue to avoid IE)

You cannot run MSE and another antivirus (that has real-time protection) on the same computer so you should choose one or the other.

Based on current independent test results, Avast! would be the preferred option by some margin. MC - Site Manager.

1 week 4 hours ago How to Disable the New User Profile Menu in the Chrome Browser Altnetcoza

This is surely a replacement feature, rather than a new feature (and not a particularly good replacement at that). Until just days ago, Chrome (when multiple profiles were in use) featured an avatar in the top LEFT corner, allowing one to open a new Window with a different profile. As the old menu allowed one to have multiple Windows open under different profiles, rather than “Switch(ing) Person(s)”.
