Thanks. No legal explanation of who your images can be shared with.
Your personal information, if you provide it ? It can be shared internationally:
"We may provide your personal information data that we have collected on our website to third party service providers to help us deliver and promote products, information, services, marketing, or other legitimate business functions"

For the record, there are a number of organisations skimming the internet for all face photos, in efforts to create facial recognition software. Other organisations are paying as third parties for access to people's photos. Facial recognition software is being used in airports and by law enforcement, as well as for government control of citizens. Its in your interest not to have your personal photos released to general circulation, although most people dont see any problem with this

Yes the images I tested all had subtle improvements. Some not much, some more noticeable. Mostly sharper details and clearer lines. I tested photos, so graphics or artwork might have more improvements.

For the record I uploaded a photo (of a flower). The result was similar to the original, so not much improvement occurred. This finding was similar to Rhiannon's included in the review above - both photos look very similar !

I take it as a given that my personal information is income to someone, somewhere. I'd guess personal information is more readily accessible and used for profit if you use a smartphone with apps.

A site like this, where you upload images but there's no personal information or account creation needed to use their service probably collects minimal data. Likely they collect the same data almost every site collects when you visit; IP address, browser type and version, operating system, etc.

This Free Online Tool Enlarges and Enhances Images Automatically 2 months 3 weeks ago MidnightCowboy It’s all pretty standard stuff and in reality also pretty meaningless since anyone feeling aggrieved by a perceived breach of their privacy would have to spend more than most folks earn in a year just to launch an action. It’s all made worse by companies who may operate from one jurisdiction but be registered somewhere else with their servers in a third location. Suffice to say anything you post or upload to the net can and most likely will be used by some third party if they can see a way to make money out of it. view

This looks like a GREAT app. You can easily multiboot any ISO, just copy them to a flash drive. The install looked much easier than easy2boot (which I never could get to work). Unfortunately it needs Linux kernel 5.4 to read the exFAT format where you put the ISOs. Sigh. So I guess I have to download the new Ubuntu just to do that!

UPDATE: I've played around a bit more and found that if you use a period followed by a space as the separator after the short day you get Thu. 16/4/20 on the Taskbar and in Settings and Control Panel and Thu. 16.4.20 in Event Viewer, Task Scheduler etc., which I find less jarring.

When I changed the date to "ddd/M/d/yyyy" however, I have the day of the week in the taskbar and do not see anything else being upset by this. So far, at least.

Interesting find, Rhiannon. Thanks.
Unexpected result of doing this: it changes the date display in programs, not just the taskbar. But not the way one would expect it.
I configure the date as Day / month / year, so today, before the tweak, was "15/04/2020".
I use Microsoft Money (years after development was stopped, I still find it the best personal finance software).
After this tweak, the date in MS Money suddenly changed to "15 04 2020". That is, no character between the digits. Yet the taskbar shows "Wed 15/04/2020."
I prefer having those intervening characters, so I've changed it back.

I had great faith that perhaps this utility could fix what Microsoft's agents have failed to do. I've been unable to update a PC at my church for a couple of years since it last installed a Windows Update. After repeated chat sessions to Microsoft and allowing the agents access which all failed to correct the problem when they tired something that broke their connection. They weren't able to reconnect and left me hanging proving even MS has no idea of how to fix what they broke. I have no other option but to wipe the drive and and reinstall another copy of clugy Windows10 from scratch.

Unfortunately, after downloading it and running it successfully, when I tried to check for updates, it still fails. Even Firefox couldn't update - I had to find and install the complete Firefox 48Mb download to update it but at least that was successful.

As far as I can tell, it doesn't diagnose errors or issues.
It re-registers files that are part of Windows Update.
There's no log needed, since it does one thing, and one thing only - it re-registers the same fixed set of files every time it's run.
A log would tell you that the 114 files were re-registered. It's the equivalent of the message that pop ups when the files are re-registered that the process was successful.
To the best of my knowledge, re-registering the files doesn't cause an issue if the files hadn't become un-registered.

You can contact the developer and ask for a list of the 114 files that get re-registered and find out more here:

Fix Windows Update Issues Using This Free Portable Utility 3 months 1 week ago rhiannon

Hmmmm that's a very good question.
If I understand it correctly, the files that get re-registered are system files - .ocx files are ActiveX files and .dll files are Dynamic Link Library files and are usually found in the Windows directory. They are registered/unregistered using Regsvr32.exe via the command line.
The Registry is a database that stores data related to configuration settings, software and preferences and is accessed via the regedit command. I used both trying to fix the issue I had.

I don't know enough to be sure if the files that are re-registered using Fix WU make any changes to registry keys related to Windows Update.
Some of the sites I checked to get an overview of Fix WU mentioned that it didn't make changes in the registry but didn't give a basis for the statement.
If anyone knows more about this please feel free to add some clarity. In the meanwhile, I've removed the line until more is known. :)

In two immediately adjacent sentences you write

and
"Fix WU doesn’t make any changes to the Windows Registry".

I am more than confused. I - maybe falsely - think that "registering files" actually is making entries in the Windows Registry?

Fix Windows Update Issues Using This Free Portable Utility 3 months 1 week ago rhiannon

That's wonderful, I hope it does the trick. If not and you're comfortable editing the registry there's an entry that sometimes gets corrupted. A search for Windows Update registry keys shoud bring up the specifics. I had both issues. I corrected the registry key and ran this utility and all is well. :)

As of the versions lately I can use T-bird for Yahoo, Outlook.com and GNail with NO problems.
Of course must use IMAP but not a problem at all.

How to Open Your Web Browser in Private Mode by Default 3 months 1 week ago rhiannon

You're so welcome. Using an add-on like uBlock Origin or Ghostery takes care of most tracking,
I also use an add-on/extension called Decentraleyes and another called ClearURLs as another layer, available on Chrome & Firefox.
Zemana is the only key logger blocker I know of, though there are probably more. It used to be free, now it's paid software.

At this point, most anti-virus/security programs will detect and block keyloggers. I don't know if they block the keyloggers that some corporations use to track what their employees are typing, though at that level security is probably handled by IT staff.
I use Social Fixer on Facebook.

Thanks Rhiannon for helping make our lives simpler and safer with your essential tips

Personal data mining and cookies are an ongoing scourge, and so any other tips including utilities that block keylogging, are appreciated !

Thanks. :)
Yes there have been issues, and it's partly because people haven't set up their meetings so they are secure. I've added basic tips to the article and a link to Zoom's blog on how to make meetings safe.

I'm thinking most of these are geared towards the USA. If you have a VPN you should be able to access them. I've updated the article, thanks for letting me know.

With reference to:

Great Idea, just that some are Private videos and unavailable and all the others that I clicked on are unavailable in UK
