rhiannon,

Thanks for that confirmation.
My copy of FEBE was corrupt.
When I checked the site it said it was not compatible with "ONE" version of Firefox which I mistakenly thought was the reason FEBE was not working.
So I then repaired the problem and all is working again as it has for many years.
Thanks,

Brian

Best Free Firewall Protection 2 months 2 weeks ago Remah

GlassWire is only a firewall in the sense that it is a front-end to Windows Firewall. If you disable Windows Firewall then the GlassWire firewall features will also be disabled. Quite a few users don't touch the firewall features - I am one that doesn't - but it might be useful one day if I get a malware infection and want to use the firewall feature to block all network access.

I mainly use it as a system monitor to keep track of all applications and devices interacting with the network from my computer. Many people use it only for bandwidth monitoring as a lot of people have quotas on their Internet connection. If they want to monitor all their network traffic then they put it on every computer.

P.S. I adopted it when I first heard about it here. I liked it so much I've paid for a full version even though I only need the free features.

Best Free Firewall Protection 2 months 2 weeks ago rolou

I have been running the free version of GlassWire for several weeks now - not as a stand alone firewall but in conjunction with my inbuilt Windows 10 firewall. Whilst it is generally not advisable to run two firewalls together GlassWire is designed to run along side the Windows firewall and provides considerable additional useful information and operates unobtrusively after a brief training period where the user vets connection alerts related to installed programs and apps.
Don't know what level of protection it would offer on its own but as an adjunct to Windows firewall it is an excellent and very user friendly tool which is being continually improved and developed (latest update yesterday).
I was somewhat sceptical of GlassWire initially because of the rather gimmicky colorful graphics but I am glad I tried it and it is a definite keeper on my computers.

Best VPN Services for 2017 2 months 2 weeks ago Anderton

Well, I've tried the fuzzy friendly Tunnelbear. And amongst all the various diggings and sundry other antics it performed, it totally screwed up my Internet connectivity. I don't know how. But it gets no jar of marmalade from me. CyberGhost left me with not a ghost of a chance of acceptable speed. It was screamingly bad. I finally settled on a VPN that I don't think is mentioned here: WindScribe, which when reviewed elsewhere seems to get high marks for quality of service, anonymity, etc.

It offers a restricted free service but from time to time, also comes up with some good deals for those who've registered with it as a free user. In December, it offered 12 months' full worldwide service for a dollar a month. (Can't remember what that came to on the then USD to GBP exchange rate.)

Anyway. I thought I'd sign up. I don't use it every day, but certainly, three or four times a week, and for extended periods. Not once has it failed to perform: no slow downs, no glitches, no dropped connections. It doesn't offer funny furry fuzzy bears and doesn't have ghostly presences interfering with its operation. It just works, and at speeds which I can't tell are any different from my non-VPN activity.

(And no, I have no, er, connection with it at all, other than as a happy customer.)

Track When A PC Was Being Used 2 months 3 weeks ago jack_e_alexander

I know how to use VirusTotal and use it on a regular basis.

Years ago I wrote Nir Sofer about all of the false positives he was getting in the anti-malware and virus programs. He wondered why as do I.

Wot is no longer available for Firefox as they were caught selling user information. Now, freeware sites (and others) want me to accept that Green Ring that Wot produces. It's obvious to me that they are getting paid to show that green ring.

Nir and I both know that some of this programs (wonderful programs, that is) are tagged even today as PUPs and out right malware still by the anti-malware community.

Recently, MalwareBytes anti-malware tagged all of the files in Auslogics Free Defragmenter. I sent them my report. At the time I was also in contact with Auslogics who say they have been having a problem with MalwareBytes. MalwayBytes responded that they were not going to un-mark the files as malware. This is a program that is listed on several software sites as having passed VT and that WOT said they were O.K.

How are we, the unsuspecting public, supposed to believe software sites such as this page? I've been reading techsuppostaler/Gizmo Richards for many years as well. (I'm an older man who is interested in test software as a hobby and recently just had to do a reinstall because on of these approved programs was doing things I didn't like to my machine.(It was a pro anti-malware program.) I uninstalled and ended up with a locked disk.) Fortunately I was able to unlock the Hard Drive and reinstall.

I am just worried about those who don't know that this is going on right under their noses.

Note: Do not install Nirsoft's package with 'Zipinstaller and then run a scan with Malwarebytes, Super-Anti Spyware or Emsisoft products. And some if not several anti-virus programs will tag several of his programs a PUPs or worse.

regards....jack

Best Free Word Processor 2 months 3 weeks ago Rev_Don

If you only want text in a cell then you need to set the properties of the cells to text. This goes for Spreadsheets as well as Word Processors (I do this quite often). Can't tell you specifically how to do so without knowing which program you will be using, but the help section of each program would tell you how to do so. Any of them should have that option. I know for sure that LibreOffice (which I recommend) does and I seem to remember AbiWord having that capability. I haven't used the others on this list.

TABLES
Anyone recommend a free program (does not have to be Word like) that allows us to create a table.
(I tried Textmaker recommended by kjbaumga, but it is not flexible enough with it's table)
I wish the table to be capable of -
- Adding, deleting rows
- Moving rows (very important)
- Columns can be of different sizes (I can live with autosize)

I tried spreadsheet programs, however I only wish text in the cells, and do not want numeric sorting etc (If I type 01, I don't want that be changed to 1)
A stand alone 'Table' program would be great, or one of the Word programs being reviewed/mentioned here

Any help would be appreciated,
Rob

Major data breach at Cloudflare, change your passwords now 2 months 3 weeks ago rhiannon

About 5.5 million domains use Cloudflare, but not all domains were impacted. Much of the leaked data was cached in search engines, and most of the data was cleaned out before information about the data breach was made public. The issue that remains is that no one knows  if the flaw was maliciously exploited before it was patched. If it wasn't, there's a pretty small chance that passwords and other data are floating around out there. If it was, there's a higher chance the data is out there. Either way it pays to be safe.:)

Cloudflare has an excellent break down on what happened here:
https://blog.cloudflare.com/quantifying-the-impact-of-cloudbleed/

A more general overview can be found here, or a search for Cloudbleed will yield articles with varying degrees of details:

I've regularly used Sumo in the past and found it useful to identify out of date software on my system. Yesterday I've updated it to the latest version. Now it not only generates false positives, but also, when trying to download updates for claimed out-of-date software, it jumps to the Mycommerce website which places an order for for a Sumo lifetime license in its basket.

If we opted not to feature bundled products, in practice it would have next to no influence on software authors and their marketing strategy. Most other sites operate under a commercial model so they would be unlikely to impose a ban either as many of the freeware products have commercial upgrades and they could not afford to lose the associated revenue. The ultimate losers of any such action here would be our own visitors. In reality there are plenty of ways users can avoid the extra components during the install process and we have published various guides on this subject.

Cloudflare is used by over 5 million web sites, but the Cloudbleed breach affected only certain services, and we may not know what all of them are for a while. Cloudflare has been open and transparent about the issue, and it looks like sites that have services that might have been affected are rolling out password changes resets and sending notifications. I think it's good to change passwords in any event. I've added a site, CloudBleedCheck, to the list, it lets you search by domain and gives you results in various ranges. If the sites has been affected you'll get the message "This domain is affected
Close all active sessions for this service, change your passwords, and enable 2FA.". 2FA is two factor authorization.

Someone please verify that if you have cleared your Internet History - NOT the same as clearing your cache - the CloudBleed addon will not turn up any possible problems. Both the CloudBleed addon and the description on ghacks.net explain the addon searches your browsing history. I use Ccleaner regularly and do not have the box for Interenet History checked, but if I did the addon would find nothing giving me a false sense of security. There are plenty of other cleaners, internet security tools, etc., that clear your browser's cache, search history and browser history either on demand or automatically.

This website (techsupportalert or Gizmo's), is one of the best, if not THE best provider of technical information, and product reviews of free gadgets, software, and innovative ideas, that exists on the internet today. As far as I can tell there are very few if any paid "staff," or "CFO's," or people with the last name of Trump who "work" here. 1) There is someone or a group of someone's who keep the site up and running. 2) There is a handsome sheriff named Midnight Cowboy - Site Manager, who keeps us in line.

The rest of the site is user supported, and it's those users who research, compare, and analyze, all the information, and then, they manage to present it to us in an informative, and entertaining way. Oh yes, did i mention that they do all of this for FREE? Frankly, some comments sound like they were written by cantankerous old men, looking for something to complain about. How about being thankful for all the work that goes into creating this wonderful website? I for one am very grateful. I know that Giz, MC, Rob, Rhiannon, and many others whose names escape me right now, would never speak to a site user in this fashion, they are far too dignified. I however, am not.

Hey, just FYI: cloudifile.com and cloudfogger.com are now both dead. Looks like maybe odrive.com (See: https://www.odrive.com/features/encryption) might be one to add but haven't tried it out yet.

Site WFM on Win 7 with the latest stable Vivaldi, video plays fine, as for Pale Moon, wouldn't know, after numerous problems accessing sites, lack of extension compatibility and security concerns I gave up and uninstalled it a couple of updates ago.

Keep All Your Passwords Safe With KeePass 3 months 5 hours ago Sea Mac

Yeah, my bad. I removed "Android" from the list of platforms supported after I saw this: https://github.com/zdia/gorilla/wiki/Gorilla-for-Android

https://github.com/zdia/gorilla/wiki/Gorilla-for-Android-(GUI) (It is still a work in progress.)

It is one of the better 'free password safe' offerings for Mac OS X users, though. (If not the Best.)

Keep All Your Passwords Safe With KeePass 3 months 5 hours ago Jojo Yee Regrettably it doesn't seem to support Android and I can't use it on the move. My current choice Keepass and Lastpass, the former includes banking passwords and the latter doesn't. view

I used to use KeePass Safe, but now I use Password Gorilla ( http://www.zdia.de/downloads/gorilla/ ). It is cross-platform for Linux/Windows/and Mac OS X - Source Code available.

I find it to be more useful. You can organize passwords into groups (For Instance: "Web Sites" / "Mobile devices Logins" / "Network Logins" / "MySQL Database passwords" / "Desktop APPs") - and sort on the groups, generate passwords with several options, edit, and add comments to passwords. You can even merge two databases together, which function I use to quickly update older databases, with the latest passwords in the newest database. The Database Merge function also has a comprehensive Conflict Resolving scheme.

The built in help is very detailed. Please, do check it out! I hope you find it as useful as I have found it.   C. Mc.

Perhaps, but I'm not going to circumvent my security for any website that I don't have a pressing need for. I was checking my work email and this looked 'interesting', but if the site developers don't want to support certain configurations, then so be it.

Snappa's website doesn't seem to fully support Pale Moon or Vivaldi (with or without ad blocking) - video won't play on either browser, so it's unlikely that I'll revisit the website. I'll stick with software that's currently working OK.
