One thing I did learn from grad school when I got my MA: In many cases peer-review means that you must agree with the philosophy of the editorial board, or you won't get published. In many many cases this means that top-notch scholarly research with valid conclusions goes wanting. Peer-review can be indeed helpful, but you'd better understand the bias of those who sit on the editorial board. Many make the error in presuming that peer-review equals objective evaluation. Often, it is anything but.

My own impression of your post is that you do not discount presentations that are not peer-reviewed, but you feel that we should be suspicious of such publications. I would disagree - Take the presentation or paper on it's own merits and investigate on your own. Just because it's peer-reviewed, in many cases, means little. I have no ax to grind because I have never been published or turned down by various peer-review pubs. I have not tried nor do I care to be published in my field (counseling).

That's my 2 cents worth. Don't want to start a major debate or argument, just expressing my opinion...

Love this site!
I notice when I try to "pin" an article to Pinterest it seldom grabs a photo unless there is a screen shot. I see a graphic that has the name of the article but it doesn't actually pin, it comes up saying "You need to upload an image or provide the 'image_url' parameter"
Since I'm sure others also don't know how to do this, I wonder if you could add a larger graphic to your heading that can be used to pin some of your wonderfully helpful and informative articles.
Thanks so much! CCL

You guys are the best. Thanks to this article and the user comments below I have just revived my old laptop I was about to throw in the garbage. My 9 years old laptop (1.6 Ghz CPU, 512mb RAM) was struggling with literally everything while browsing on the internet using Chrome or Firefox. Firstly I tried Comodo Dragon, and it did the job fairly good (except YouTube playback, it was laggy). Now with Slimboat it is unbelievable how good it performs with heavy pages and a few open tabs. All this under TinyXP of course, for as much available RAM as possible. Seems like I'll be using this machine for a little longer!

Also oCam auto checks for new versions on start-up ( often called "calling home" ),

If a new version is available it also downloads and installs it... all without your control to stop it. and no option to disable update checking or installation.

PS Anyone using skype may have noticed it also auto checks for new versions ( which i call updates) even thought i have update checking in options `unchecked`. This doesn't surprise me coming from MS, to ignore user options.

If I may put my two cents in, Bitdefender free edition is not a good choice.

You have to download an installer -an offline intaller simply does no exist- and the installation needs several consecutive downloads even after the installation. The first definitions update takes a while and sometimes goes wrong, so the program forces you to start the updating process again. I know this because I tried installing bitdefender on different PCs from friends and relatives, so I can say the process isn't as smooth as you'd want.

The installer does not include an uninstaller, you have to download a third party one if you ever get bored (or annoyed) by Bitdefender. Also, you have 30 days to test the product, after that period you are forced you to create a free BitDefender account or login with facebook or G+ within the app to continue using the product.

IMHO, not the best of approaches.

Thanks Philip! Yes I looked at Tresorit but the storage costs about 10 times what dropbox costs right now for 1 TB. And they have a lot of limitations even for the paid pro and business versions (e.g. max 2 GB file size, etc.) Also does not support selective sync of subfolders within a Tresor. I guess the perfect solution doesn't exist :-(! I remember several years ago I used IDrive and Mozy and they both supported "zero-knowledge" encryption with private key known only to the user. But unfortunately these are more for backup than for sync and they both had their own limitations as well.

If anyone in this forum knows about a client-side cloud encryption utility that works with dropbox and other similar clods without doubling my local storage - would still love to hear about it.

view
1 week 23 hours ago Best Free Antivirus Software Chiron

As per my methodology I only use the results from Real World Protection Tests. In those Avast has consistently been doing quite well. The issue with File Detection Tests is that they really only test what has become just one part of the job of an antivirus. These days what matters is how all of the protection layers add together to protect a system. Thus, focusing on just one, such as File Detection, doesn't really give a good picture of the protection capabilities. That is why I leave out any descriptions of file detection statistics, even though historically that used to be what was most important in terms of protection.

Let me know if you have any questions, or concerns, about this methodology. I am always looking for issues with it so that this advice can be improved.

Thank you.

1 week 1 day ago A Worthy Competitor To Dropbox? rob.schifreen

If the directory tree is a standard Windows folder, then Dropbox will work just fine. However, the structure of a directory tree in Bb only exists within Bb itself. So unless Dropbox makes a special add-on to integrate with Bb, I think the answer is unfortunately no.

A request for your 'new look' site, please make sure its visually accessible to readers / viewers with visual impairments who use large text. My netbook, with it's 1024x576 screen, cannot fit some programs because my screen size is too small. An example is the Disk Defragmentation from Auslogics, which won't even install.

Thanks for the clarification - I never tried it in 7, but knew it opened the recovery options in 8.x.

Doesn't work in Windows 7 and does not boot directly to Safe Mode in 8.1 but opens a screen where you can choose some troubleshooting options.

File Detection Tests

Real World Protection Tests

Avast does extremely poor in File detection tests and came last.

Excellent results for Avira (Pro) and Qihoo. Panda does a fair job.

What if you have followed all of these instructions and your USB still shows a boot error? Or rather, the USB is already set to "Active" but still doesn't boot?

And I understand there are other variables, however, what should I try after all else fails?

You can also simply hold down the Shift key while clicking on Restart (in any of the menus where it is found) to boot into Safe Mode.

Interesting, I can't say I'd need it though.

Another way to force Safe Mode if you're not good at hitting the right key (in W7 and earlier at least) is to open System Configuration (press the Win key and type System Configuration or msconfig Same result) select the Boot tab then the Safe Boot check box and (probably) the Network radio button.

I can't remember when I last needed Safe Mode, not like W9x days.

Considering that it came out of beta only a few months ago, it can be called as new. Also came into notice now, and not before.

You probably meant new here and not new ... it has been around for more than 3 years ...
