Try this Evernote-like Open Source Note Taking App for Free 4 months 2 weeks ago eikelein

You most certainly are correct.
What bugged me most was: First the free version allowed me to use it one my main machine at home, my carry along laptop when i do customer visits, my Android phone, my wife's computer a.s.o.
Then they change their policies - which is their good right, I admit - and suddenly it was only two systems. ;-)

I love that site, I'm glad they put a coronavirus page. Really clean interface with minimal data presented so you can find more if you're interested. Nice.

Useful Dashboards for Tracking the Coronavirus 4 months 2 weeks ago rhiannon

I'm asking because I viewed all of the sites in Google Chrome with no extensions other than a password manager (standard practice on my end) and saw no ads on any of the sites. The Bing site has a column of news articles but I see no ads there.
I use Google Chrome to test sites with only a password manager installed, no ad blocker or anything else, because it's the most commonly used browser.
I'm not seeing any ads on the Worldometers site either, if that's the site you're referring to.

Useful Dashboards for Tracking the Coronavirus 4 months 2 weeks ago Sturgeon General

The textual info at the bottom is nice and the page is loaded with tons of charts and graphs filled with all the same info found on the Johns Hopkins dashboard. Otherwise, even with a basic popup blocker running, the site is riddled with ads. And rather than be convenient and tidy, the informational charts and graphs are spread out on a long scrolling, bright white page. The aesthetics alone are a huge turn off for me. But, the more options we have to find this information, the better in my opinion.

'Find Album Info' Not Working In Windows Media Player? Try This 4 months 3 weeks ago rhiannon

I would save it to Documents, and after move it to the desktop if you want - it doesn't have to be on the desktop. You can do the same thing with the file in any folder.

If you can't save to the desktop, one reason could your anti-virus software is preventing it. You can disable it and try it, and if that's not the issue, something here may help:

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

i then went and saved it to my desktop after adding the line
# 2.18.213.82 redirmetasevices.microsoft.com

when i go to save it it gives me two choices,
save as type: text documents (*.txt), or all files , the encoding is ANSI.
i get a message that reads
c: windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.text
you don't have permission to save in this location.
contact the administrator to obtain permission

then it asks me if i would like to save to my documents instead.
i am the system administrator, i am in my administrator account. i don't use this account, unless i'm installing programs that i want to be accessed from any other windows account or guest account. so why am i not allowed access, or do i have to enter through the area where i shut down drivers to do this?

Are you saying your anti-virus blocked the Softpedia download site? That would be quite unusual.

If it's blocking the author's site I would test it with at least one other anti-virus site or program, it's likely to be a false positive. I was not blocked from accessing the site by my anti-virus program and received no warnings using multiple browsers.

As to why it's identifying something on the site as PUP I don't know. Some anti-virus programs are over active and deliver a large amount of false positives - it's best practice to test anything your anti-virus program identifies as a threat with other sources.

I recommend using the Softpedia download link in the article, or the Major Geeks download site I mentioned here in the comments. Major Geeks scans all the programs they have on their servers for malware. Pretty sure if there were a problem it would have been removed from the reputable download sites.

I mentioned in the article that due to the nature of the program (it acts like a password retrieval type program and scans the registry) some anti-virus programs will flag as malware. Any program that behaves that way will likely be tagged as malware. The author mentions this on the site.

The portable version brings up some flags in Virus Total and other testing sites, though the executable version does not.
I've installed both and scanned both using security software on my computers and neither was flagged, and the site wasn't blocked by my security software.

If you have any ad blocking or security add-ons or extenstions, they might interfere, a system security program might interfere, and have you tried checking out using another browser?
I'm not sure location would be a factor,

I just now tried Bitwarden in comparison to Lastpass which I have used several years now.

Scenario: My bank has a "home page" at
https://landmarkcu.com/ that includes fields for username and password.
Within the functionality of the pages involved they seem to pass the values of these fields to the next page that is on
https://www.landmarkcuonline.com/....

Lastpass has for quite some time now "harassed ;-(" me with a warning message about that and I needed to give special permission for this web site internal action EVERY TIME I had to log in!
That is nothing bad but really ANNOYING if it happens like clockwork!

And forgive me, I understand the text in that "warning" message; my average customer would NOT!

Bitwarden just does that without a hiccup and without engaging me.

I started with KeePass, then LastPass. Over a year ago I moved to Bitwarden and have not looked back. Excellent in all ways. I have it configured so that it does not autofill the passwords or forms, but requires an extra click to fill them. This adds an extra layer of security. It works very well for me and I recommend it to others all the time. Steve Gibson, (GRC.com) one of the world's top computer experts endorses LastPass in a blog, and BitWarden uses the same type of technology where your passwords never leave your computer or phone without first being totally encrypted.

You don't have to provide accurate personal information. Way too many sites ask for personal information in my opinion.
I keep a few sets of credentials - disposable email addresses, a Google Voice phone number, etc for this purpose because I do a lot of registering and downloading of things in order to write this column.

The  program is a full featured recovery program that you use on up to five computers, with unlimited amount of recoveries, for one year. This is clearly stated at the beginning of the article.
I guess you could classify it as trial ware, but historically trial programs revert to free version after 30 days, sometimes 90 days. This doesn't revert to a free version. I'm not sure what it reverts to, I haven't been able to find that information. My guess it that it reverts to a paid version but I don't know for sure.

Get Pixel8 Seagate Premium Data Recovery Software Free 5 months 1 week ago rhiannon

I'm not sure what you mean by an paying for activation key? I ran this several different times on two hard drives and it recovered files with no problem. I was then able play the recovered mp3 files, open and edit text and document files, was able to open and edit images in Irfanview. At no point was I asked to purchase an activation key or anything else. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It does, when you go to recover files, say you've used an activation key. It's in the article. It will keep telling you that, but since the license is unlimited for one year, they are not relevant. It may apply to the paid version.
