XYplorerFree seems to be showing its age, although that might be an advantage for anyone who shares the preferences expressed by Snowman123. Using it on a Win8 box, it didn't recognize the Library "folders" and gave me a tedious hourglass when I connected a camera to a USB port. Has anyone else had that experience?

This product is portable.

Not quite. However, the protection is now configured in such a way that ransomware can be properly blocked without making the change which was necessary for V5. Making that change for V5 made it more chatty. Now it's possible to get the same level of protection with V6, but with less alerts.

Still want to see fix for IE 11 in Win 8.1 to work right w/ Flash Player. Can't play videos on lot sites w/ the newest Flash Player. Chrome ok for most sites (built in Flash) so why the IE 11 grief.

Hello Chiron, your articles are always fantastic, thanks very much for them!

Sorry me for my English but can you answer me one doubt, please? In the old article, with Comodo Firewall 5, I remember that there was a configuration that you needed to put something with * and other symbols. I remember that in the article you said that command was for blocking everything and to give 100% of protection. In this new Comodo Firewall 6, there are not more need to put this command? This command was put in the Defense+ tab if I'm not wrong.

Thanks again!

36 weeks 4 days ago Get The Release Version of Internet Explorer 11 For Windows 7 NorthPole

Updated (Windows 7 x64 Home Premium) without any initial issues (I noticed and unchecked the Bing/MSN options); BUT I very soon became aware that right-click context menu selections in both IE11 and other applications were 'sticking' on the desktop as 'ghost' images after clicking on them. Nothing short of re-starting the Desktop Window Manager (dwm.exe) service or a re-boot would get rid of them. In addition, the IE11 Developer Tools (selected with the F12 key) were unusable for me - they seemed to have no logic to them at all as compared with those in IE10 and earlier.

Uninstalled (fortunately successfully) after about 15 minutes and won't be trying IE11 again - a step too far for Windows 7 and an unpleasant foretaste of Windows 8, it seemed to me.

When you install ImageBurn, it recommends installing the AVG toolbar and AVG Secure Search as your homepage. The "Standard Installation (recommended)" and checked by default automatically installs these.

To not install these items, you need to click on Custom Installation and uncheck both items.

Also as mentioned in previous posts, after the AVG installation page, to skip the OpenCandy installation, you need to switch from "Express Installation (recommended)" to "Custom Installation" and uncheck the recommendation given there.

Warning: The installation seemed to go flawlessly until my desktop came up. I thought MSFT had converted me to the god-awful Windows 8 desktop - but it was far worse.

IE11 completely wiped out my user profile. It wasn't just a matter of going to the control panel and reinstating it, it was gone.

Per usual, I'd done a complete image backup beforehand, so it was merely a matter of a fifteen minute restore. I'm glad that some had no trouble, but use utmost caution. If you're not prepared, the loss of a profile is only slightly less bad than a computer that won't boot.

37 weeks 11 hours ago Save On Expensive Ink And Paper With A Free Browser Add-On Quantum_Dragon

Yes, I use this one in some of my browsers alongside Evernote to mostly make Virtual instructions booklets for myself!

The only problem I have with this arrangement is in regards to shaping the final product, it still needs work in the formatting / editing department as you cannot change the width of the article. You also need to watch for artifacts (Some left over from the HTML stripping) that you have to erase manually.

So to make it more flexible, I use a three programs / apps, four steps process, capture by Clearly into Evernote then export from there to AllMyNotes Organizer by Volodymyr Frytskyy of Vladonai Software ( www.vladonai.com ). It is available in FREE & Premium versions (The difference is that the PRO (Premium) version permits to put pictures / graphics in the notes. It is sometimes offered for free on the "For the Day" sites out there, look for it!) then I copy it back in Evernote as A) Pasting as basic text and B) Inserting images/graphics manually!

As you can see, nothing magical but as I am a borderline perfectionist, I like the results!

37 weeks 13 hours ago How to Get Help with Windows 8.1 Upgrade Problems SeamusH

I had no dramas upgrading on my desktop but my netbook, an older MSI, didn't have sufficient screen resolution to open the App Store. While I accept that Windows 8 wasn't recommended for the netbook, I do find it a ludicrous situation whereby your screen resolution prevents you from downloading a file - why can they not provide an alternative link to access via the browser? Why must it only be done through the app? In the end, I got around it by connecting my desktop monitor and, while the download was very slow (6 hours or so), it ran okay thereafter.

BTW, app/screen-resolution issue aside, I can highly recommend running Windows 8/8.1 (with Classic Shell) on a netbook - boot-up times are way faster than XP, although, who knows, maybe it'll fry my CPU one of these days :)

Upgrade via Store ok weeks back. Win 8.1 x64 Pro over 8 x64 Pro MC. Most stuff came across ok. Just major apps needed to be reinstalled to get fresh updates like Adblock Plus, Lastpass 3.0 and such. Seems related to IE 11 changes. Look for apps that say they were redone for 8.1 like drivers and executables.
Only a few sites gave me trouble, usually related to Flash Player and playing videos. One site say it is getting 'native player' soon and til then use Chrome or other browser which worked. But my stock broker site no go on Chrome now. So used older Flash Player file flash.ocx in the x64 folder for Flash. Then ok. Bleed edge stuff to be expected. Skype is much improved in Modern tile.
PC boots very fast and doesn't crash. Be sure to make many Macrium Reflect images along the way - esp if install Chrome w/ IE also. Chrome won't come back right if you delete it totally then try to regain just with Recovery. Need full image of entire drive.
Oh AdMuncher doesn't work w/ IE 11 but latest Adblock Plus is fine, even puts its red stop sign at bottom. Note the Ad does prevent Lastpass from autofilling some sites unless turn off Ad for that site. Mixed success trying IE offer to save passwords, ditto Chrome w/ Lastpass. All in all not bad.

Gonwk thank you for your feedback. It's unfortunate when a user has a poor experience with a software, and having such experiences myself with other programs I can certainly understand. I recommend you contact Spybot regarding your concerns with their software and let them know you used Revo, that may have influenced your experience.

Regarding our review and ranking please note under the 5 star rating, one of the cons of this program is "does not uninstall cleanly". This is not to say it will negatively impact your computer, rather you will need to use a cleaner like 360Amigo or Ccleaner to remove the trace files left from the uninstall. When I did the uninstall I used Windows 7 control panel.

Hi, I just downloaded LMMS and am looking to start producing and I thought this might be a good place to start. My only problem with LMMS is that when I start it up, I get no sound. I went to audio settings and tried to change the settings to my computer speakers, and when I restart LMMS and check audio settings it remains on "Dummy". Anyone know how I would be able to get sound? I'm pretty new to all this I have a ASUS Laptop Model X54C and I'm not sure what type of sound card it is. But the laptop isn't too old so I believe the sound card is ok (at least I think so).

I have a Gateway SX2803 computer and no problems until last night. When I went to turn the computer back on the screen comes up black with the words: Missing Operating System. What does this mean? I cannot locate the Windows 7 installation disc which I was told would be needed. I do not remember if it came with one or not. I am not into the tech end of computers, but am trying to get info on the problem I have. Thanks, for any help you can give me, yonkers.

I've looked at all the editors mentioned in the comments as well as the article. RJ TextEd (mentioned in comments) and PSPad are about equal. Each has some features lacking in the other, but both are better (in my opinion) than Notepad++.

But I was shocked to see that neither the main article, nor the comments, mentioned SynWrite. This editor stands head and shoulders above the others, with a full compliment of features. The author is very responsive; new features get added; bugs get fixed.

Please consider reviewing this editor. Your readers will be glad you did.

Just installed MusicBee player. Superb and without doubt the best player I have used. Skins great, tagging superb, library organisation very easy, blows WMP out of the water and it really does look great.

Until now I got around this problem by copying and pasting a web page or info into a docu file in Open Office and then deleted what I did not want and printing what was left. Why are programs like the one reviewed better than that?.

AOMEI Backupper is now my goto freeware imaging software after using Acronis as my primary imaging tool. I've tested several restores in Win 8.0 and 8.1 and they work flawlessly. I tried most of the others and found them to be too slow or the recovery media doesn't work properly. I use both "just in case". I have a TB of software to protect!!!!
