Best Free Drive Cloning Software 2 years 5 months ago vnavna

You really need to check out Veeam Endpoint Backup which is a free backup application for personal or commercial use. It works pretty darn well with disk imaging and recovering.
Version 1.5 is out now but a newer version is soon to be released with more functionality.
The only bad thing is that now you can boot to a USB to recover only because there is no option to create a cold backup from booting from a the USB which is in other products out there.
Hopefully someday they will put those options in.

As stated in the first comment about Veeam Endpoint Backup the bootable disk only allows you to recover. There is no backup from bootable option available yet. I have requested that feature for a while now but as of today, there is still no backup from bootable device option.
On a side note, I have never received any SPAM messages from Veeam since signing up to download the installer.

Another note that the name has changed from Veeam Endpoint Backup to Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE 2.1.

Yes, CDI offers to install third party programs that are not required for the program to run, but if you pay attention to the unwanted changes or if you have Zemana or WinPatrol, they will block the majority of this garbage.

HitmanPro and MBAM are useless in this situation.

I think it may be useful at this point to inform you of Spybots ENTIRE name. Spybot search and destroy. Doing a simple google search of "spybot" turns up quite a few imposters. If it does NOT say Search and Destroy, it is NOT the real Spybot. I have never had a single problem with spybot and have been using it now for at least 6 years.

How to Clean An Infected Computer 5 years 7 months ago Viper6

Hey folks.

Just curious if anybody can provide some assistance with a frustrating issue I am having.. I recently ran a malwarebytes full scan and removed what it found.. Everything seemed to be fine until I rebooted my computer. It will now boot to the windows desktop and hang.. I can see my icons and everything looks fine but programs fail to load and I cannot click on anything.. Sometimes it will load fine (able to click icons and programs) but no internet connection.. If I hardboot the pc into safemode and restart from there it boots normally into windows and runs great.. May be important to note that I experience the start up issues after a shutdown and start back up. A normal restart or closing the laptop and reopening is normal.. OS = Windows 7.

Any suggestions/ideas would be great.

Thanks.

Best Free DVD Ripper 5 years 7 months ago Viola4u The review on WinX DVD Ripper has been updated. Some readers here complain that this ripper cannnot rip encrypted DVDs at all. But if you load the movie by clicking Folder, it will do. :) However, it doesn't support strongly encrypted DVDs. How to judge? I'm not sure. Just try it yourself. In addtion, DVDFab changed their marketing strategy recently. One of the changes is: DVDFab HD Decrypter "Copy just some old DVDs/Blu-rays" Maybe they've changed it for a long time? I tested it with an old Disney movie UP and it worked well. My new DVDs will arrive soon and I'll test it later. The review will be updated accordingly. view

Best Free eBook Reader for Android 6 years 5 months ago vinarian

Great article!

I have been using this in conjunction with aldiko for years now, and though I keep trying other reader apps, I keep going back to aldiko, then again with calibre, eBook formats don't matter as I auto convert them to epub anyway (calibre is also one of the few - possibly only program that can convert .lit files)

Continuous Ink System (CIS) 5 years 3 months ago victoriaskaren

I see most of the posts are old on this subject but like all things, the CIS system seems to have started being popular again, or it may just be me. However I have a question and would really appreciate a moment of help. I have an Epson R2000, I also have a CIS ink system. I did not get the reset devise when I purchased my cis and now I am lost as to what to do. My machine is working great, love the pictures I print, however something I had no idea about was that the cartridges would begin to show that they are empty even though they are full. Short of buying a new cartridge to replace the one that says it is almost empty I am out of ideas here. I have read almost everything on the net, but no one will tell you exactly what to do to solve the issue with one exception. That exception is an automatic switch devise that costs $300.00 I don't print enough to spend that on a switch when the printer was $500.00 to start with! Is there no other alternative? I see reset devises on Ebay (liitel plastic things......but have read they don't really work either. Any help will be appreciated!I guess in the long run if I were to have to purchase that type of devise I have to question the savings that I am top get with the cis.
Many thanks

Best Free Windows Apps 2 years 7 months ago VelvetElvis

"Most folks who use PCs are professionals"
Nonsense. That might've been the case 20 years ago, but not today. Now PCs are just another appliance. We no longer have to type archaic codes into a terminal program to get our 300 baud modems to connect. Now grandma can fire up her laptop and talk to her grandkids on the other side of the planet, in real time, all with the very basic of training.
While these apps might not be yours nor my cup of tea, lots of people enjoy them, and can be up and running with them with minimal fuss. They're not intended to be used by business, and thinking otherwise is silly.
"Why can't they make a real operating system anymore?"
"Anymore?" LOL. I used to be a Microsoft hater years ago, and I started with DOS 3.3. The first versions of Windows were a joke, and serious business users were installing OS/2. Today's Windows is for the most part, solid and stable, and ubiquitous, and gets better with each iteration. The Linux revolution simply didn't materialize, and while it's a superb OS, it's never going to overtake Windows overall. I see no "arrogant and stubborn focus" on the Windows Store by MS. It's simply another revenue stream, and it's trivially easy to not see any evidence of it on your desktop. It's certainly not "diluting" my environment.
I don't go to the Windows Store for my development tools - no professional does - but I don't begrudge anyone who finds it useful . Enjoy your PC for what you need it for, but to belittle it is pedantically elitist.
