Be careful. If the software was installed by the computer manufacturer, these key finders will likely return a one-time bulk installer product code which won't work again. I've been burnt by this more than a few times.
Key finders work fine with a manually inputted product code.

I've edited that link so it goes to the home page of TheWindowsClub, that way no one will be be confused about where the download link is in that article, and it is easy to miss.

'Find Album Info' Not Working In Windows Media Player? Try This 7 months 1 week ago cryofreeze666

using windows 7 having problems with the info as the article states, followed your instructions but this is what showed up.
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# 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
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 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?

'Find Album Info' Not Working In Windows Media Player? Try This 7 months 1 week 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:

Useful Dashboards for Tracking the Coronavirus 7 months 4 days 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.

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.

This is a great (and currently relevant) topic. I've provided "support" to many family members over the years and have tried a bunch of different products. For our small business and home we use Zoho Assist which is free for "on demand" support which allows you to connect to another computer or the other user to connect to you. It's an enterprise level product that has worked well for me. Many of our business clients have Apple laptops and desktops and I can connect to them for training as easily as a windows computer.

Use These Tips and Tools to Set Up Remote Support for Friends and Family 7 months 12 hours ago wmgoat

Used to use TeamViewer, was great. Now its limited to 5 minutes per session if you dont pay. I dumped it.

2 alternatives that Ive tried: Google remote desktop if you are just going into your system remotely or have a google pw on the receiving machine. Smooth operation once you get in. But doesnt work well for support because there still are a lot of people that dont have a Google account.

The other comes standard in the OS from MS: Quick Assist. Its a 2 way auth tool that gives you total control of the users screen. Ive used it several times with very new Win 10 users and with a bit of coaching, get in with no problem. Note that the user must input a code and then in the 3rd part of auth, they must allow you access, so you cant use this without user assistance at the keyboard. Its a me, you, me, you thing. Dont know when it started showing up in Win 10, but its in the latest 2 versions. Not sure about older ones.

Try Quick Assist, its working for me.

TeamViewer 6 months 4 weeks ago wmgoat

I support a number of people (I live in a mature adult community) and I do not get paid for my services, its volunteer. About a year ago, TeamViewer determined that I must be commercial; Im presuming because I had about 35 computers in my access list (7 of these systems were mine). They now limit my connection sessions to 5 minutes, with a wait time of 10 minutes between each session.

This was a wonderful tool and I miss it but Im not willing to pay for a licence to support users I do not charge. And I dont want to absorb the price of this volunteer work.

I dumped TeamViewer and now use google remote desktop for clients that have a google account or I use the Windows Quick Assist. I no longer have the ability to access unattended but thats not a problem since now I just require the users to be there when I access the systems. A bit inconvenient for them but thats what they have to deal with for no charge to them.

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.

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?
