Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago George.J

That is because PDF-XChange Editor is a Shareware software. A shareware software doesn't mean that it is Commercial (one which you have to pay after the trial period), it means that:

1. Will revert to the free version with certain limitations once after the trial period is over (eg. Sandboxie). This typically can be considered as free. (note that there are other class of products called Free software, which is different from Freeware software)

2. Will be having significant limitations (also called Demo software) after the trial period is over and you might have to pay for it to continue using the product for it's basic features. (eg. Kaspersky Antivirus)

Freeware products with a commercial version have generally separate names, hence it can earn the license of being Freeware (eg. Avast Antivirus Free/Pro, MalwareBytes Free/Pro)

There are a lot of Licensing terms that might be different across various softwares, which is what creates this confusion. But this is the general rule. The ultimate licensing of a product (and hence usage) will be described in the EULA of a software, which is generally shown in a dialog box during installation, or will be described on their website.

Best Free File-Based Backup Program 1 month 1 week ago AndyR It has already been explained right here; http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/file-backup-terminology-what-do-... Also the link is on this very page you are reading now not far after the Introduction ;-) view
Best Free File-Based Backup Program 1 month 1 week ago AndyR Yes that is another method I don't like, granted companies need to make their money somehow but having to register a CC first always makes me dubious... as they know a high percentage of people will forget to cancel and they will at least get one payment out of them... Slightly off topic but worth a mention if you ever buy anything from anywhere be it online or at the mall always use a Credit Card as in the ones that you have a spending limit on and pay the balance monthly (or in instalments) as that way you have the greatest protection from fraud or arguments over faulty goods... It is easy to issue what is known as a "Charge Back" (there are certain rules and agreements but this is not the place to go into specific details) A Debit Card (often wrongly called a Credit Card) is treated the same way as if you had paid in Cash ! What they don't tell you is a Debit Card transaction actually takes 3 days before the funds leave your actual bank ! but your balance is updated almost instantly. I was a fraud investigator for a number of years with a large online company, this is how I know the ins-and-outs and only posting this for information value guys. view

Best Free File-Based Backup Program 1 month 1 week ago MDTerp66

Remember, backups are worthless; restores are priceless. A differential backup backs up only the files that changed since the last full back. For example, suppose you do a full backup on Sunday. On Monday you back up only the files that changed since Sunday, on Tuesday you back up only the files that changed since Sunday, and so on until the next full backup. Differential backups are quicker than full backups because so much less data is being backed up. But the amount of data being backed up grows with each differential backup until the next full back up. If you do an incremental backup on Tuesday, you only back up the data that changed since the incremental backup on Monday. So, each differential backup goes back to the date of the last Full backup while an incremental backup only goes back to the previous incremantal backup. You need a Full backup followed by one differential backup while you need the Full one plus all the incremental ones done since the full one.

Happened to me today. I called their tech support and the first thing they asked was had I paid for it. No, it is Free. They told me it is free for the first 90 days, but you have to process the CC first, then remember to cancel before the 90 days. Who needs 90 days worth of backups?

I love this app, because it is flexible, easy to understand the structure properly.

Good comments johnvk.
 
This article was previously prepared by another editor. I copy-edited it with an update on PDF-XChange Editor.
 
As mentioned in the Introduction section of this article, none of the programs reviewed here were able to render an Adobe 3D image.
 
There're 3D PDF documents readily available from other sites such as this. You may want to give the documents a try and see if they are any different when opened with Non-Adobe and Adobe PDF readers.

Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago Remah

johnvk, regarding your comment on the limited number of three recommended products, there is a companion article with more options:

Best Free PDF Writer Software.

My experience of free PDF readers, even Adobe Acrobat, is that they tend to have significant pitfalls. I'm not surprised Jojo only recommends three products. Many of the free viewers do not have enough free features or have other specific limitations. That's why I shifted to using PDF-XChange Editor after using Nitro PDF Reader for several years.

view
Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago Anupam From my experience, "free download" is not the same as "free version". Many commercial software offer "free download" of their software, which simply means that it is free to download, but might just be a trial version. So they should specifically mention a "free version". view
Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago Anupam Welcome :). I have also used their product for years now, and that's why I just downloaded the software, and did not pay attention to other details on their new revamped site. I don't know why they don't mention about the free version anymore. Guess one of our editors should email them and ask about it. view
Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago Yankiwi

After using the free version of PDF-Xchange Viewer, I switched to the free version of PDF-Xchange Editor when it came out and it was excellent. I tested the "paid version only" features, even though they had watermarks (Hey, at least they allow you to test the features you'd be paying for!), and I thought so highly of it that I eventually bought two licenses for the paid version for our two computers here.

I have never regretted that decision. Although most of the software we use is free (Thank you, Gizmo's!), we use so many PDFs and need to annotate and edit them so much that we needed the functions and power that the PDF-Xchange Editor gave us and it was well worth what we paid. If the free version gives you everything you need, that's great, but although I rarely buy software any more, this purchase was worth every penny to us.

Also, just for the record, I need to mention that Tracker Software has given me simply the best customer service and support I have ever received from any software company in over 30 years of dealing with personal computers, bar none. Without exception, their replies to my emails when I've had questions have been incredibly quick (occasionally in as little as ten minutes or so!), informative, helpful, and courteous. When I was trying to decide which of their several offerings to purchase, they only informed me and never pushed a sale. This is what customer service and support SHOULD be, but so rarely is.

Great article Jojo!

I would like to simply add an observation; I find it surprising that--even now--March of 2016--there are only 3 choices for free PDF readers. This feels like the kind of category that would have literally hundreds. I wonder why? Maybe the hundreds of developers who would create these free versions are satisfied enough with Adobe?

One question: which test files did Sumatra not open? It's very popular, but I'd like to know what I (and all those other people) are missing.

Best Free Non-Adobe PDF Reader 1 month 1 week ago jdefgts

It has been a while since I have done the comparison between the PDF-Xchange Reader and the free version of Editor. My recollection is that the only features offered in the Editor that were not found in the Reader resulted in watermarks being applied to the resulting PDFs. If that is still the case, there would seem to be no long term benefit that comes from the free version of the Editor other than as a trial for the paid version.

If anyone has some recent experience with the Editor that differs from mine, I would be pleased to give it another shot.

Good observation.

They actually do not mention on their site (which has changed by the way), but the PdfXchange Editor does have a free version, which you can select during installation. In the About section too, they mention about the free version, which has most functionalities available.

But yes, they should mention about the free version on their site somewhere atleast. There is no mention of it currently.

Best Free File-Based Backup Program 1 month 1 week ago ole

I used Yadis! for many years without any problem. However, after going to Windows 10 certain programs threw a "Filter" error that no filter or compatibility setting fixed. The program has not been maintained for many years (Support at Codessentials is a "black hole") and undoubtedly will not be updated. After Yadis! failed I tried AutoVer but it also had Windows 10 problems with some programs that were brought to the developer's attention but were never addressed. Subsequently, I switched to AllWay Sync (free for 40K files/month or $25 for unlimited) which is not cloud-based but provides real time backup with versioning plus additional features and it has performed without a problem.

Best Free Digital Image Viewer 1 month 1 week ago br1anstorm

I agree with others who have praised this as a useful and comprehensive review.

My own favourites are FastStone Image Viewer (for all the reasons mentioned in the article), with Zoner as a very close runner up. I use them both. FastStone does just about all I ever need, and is the slickest and most user-friendly. I like the way menus can be hidden or made to appear from the edges of an image you are editing; the option to compare different images side by side; and also the easy way of comparing original with modified image before saving changes. On the other hand, one particularly useful feature of Zoner, not offered by FastStone, is the option to create panoramas.

It was disappointing to read that the latest (free) version of Zoner (v.18) disables some important editing features. The conclusion I draw from that is that it is wiser to find and download, or to stick with, an earlier version. I'm still using Zoner v.14, and it's still fine.

Best Free CD-DVD Burning Software 1 month 1 week ago mbugaram

Regarding ImgBurn and Opencandy the solution is simple Download the installer and use 7zip to extract it to a folder. Inside the folder delete the directory called $PLUGINSDIR this is where opencandy resides. You can now run the program straight from the folder or move the folder and make a shortcut to ImgBurn.exe This is one of the few programs that does not actually require installation. You can also copy the appropiate files over the old ones to upgrade a already installed version.

I use IMGBURN for most of my burning needs and it works great. While it is possible to make a audio cd using IMGBURN I prefer something more simple.

I contacted Brosoft support and after finally getting a response from them I still wasn't able to make it work. I requested a refund of the purchase. I've been to get that refund for 16 days now and it's as if I'm stuck in a loop with them. They give me the same answer over and over. They ignore my questions. They ignore my request for a refund.

Best Free Program Uninstaller 1 month 1 week ago bklampfl

From the listed uninstallers I tried GeekUninstaller because it looked simple, clean and unbundled with other tools that I have covered with other programs (I'm not a fan of all-in-one solutions, because they are rarely equaly good at different tasks). In a few test uninstalls GeekUninstaller did the job and cleaned leftovers. But I missed extra security of backing up the deleted registry entries. So I tried Wise Uninstaller that I saw mentioned in the comments. It offers almost the same experience as GeekUninstaller, if not nicer interface. And it does keep backup of the deleted registry entries automatically (in the Log section). Also, I'm just prepearing my old computer for the move into my office and unlike GeekUninstaller (free version) it is allowed for use in bussiness setting. I did lots of uninstalls with Wise and didn't have any problems. Note that I did rarely found empty folders of uninstalled apps in User/AppData/Roaming. Don't know if that ever happens with GeekUninstaller, but I can live with that because I have backups of deleted registry enties and that seems more important to me than occasional empty folder.

Important: Update your Kindle ASAP 1 month 2 weeks ago Catsup22

Always appreciate heads up on things like this. I'll add a warning for others about what the "update" did to my Kindle Paperwhite.

When I allowed the update to my Kindle, ""it totally wiped every book I had loaded (under documents) and for a reason Amazon says they can't explain, it loaded all my wife's books from her Kindle (same Amazon account - separate devices) onto mine.""

Amazon Kindle support was of absolutely no help to explain it or fix it. I had to manually reload all the ebooks I formerly had on my Kindle. Fortunately, I keep my ebook library on my PC.

If you want this update because you download and/or read a lot directly from Amazon, just be prepared for some potential major screw-ups.

Sorry, but what does NP stand for?
And in Wisconsin it's seasonably cool, nights -5C, days +5C.

Boris,

Guilty as charged and I APOLOGIZE to you.

And I didn't even do my homework re. place of residence. Please forgive an old man who feels caught on the wrong foot and rightly called out.

Firstly, it was not a diatribe, it was my opinion, set down in a written response. I diatribe is insulting and angry, not the simple telling of facts that I wrote.

In fact I've been around outside the USA for some considerable time, being a UK citizen and having lived here most of my life I have a reasonable idea of what's going on outside the USA. Having lived a few years in Europe (France and Italy mostly) I have a small idea of what goes on there. Quite what your assumptions about my location mean I'm not entirely sure ,except that you make assumptions.

"Now, the very last part after "never met anyone" tells only abut your
company, no comment. "
I have no idea what you mean by that. But clearly you do have comment, because you felt the need to repeat it. Was that an attempt at sarcasm? Poor.

One of the things I love about this site is that mostly people are respectful to one another, even if their opinion differs. So, I'd ask you to be respectful, because if you want to inform me of something, that's the only way you'll get me to listen.

@Reporter:
I am with you.
Most of the "limitations" I see come from people who run old, out of date versions.

And yes, LibreBase, the database module, used to require Java; I don't know if that is still the case, would be a pity though IMHO at least. I am an age old Oracle guy.
