Google Drive and Google Photos Are Splitting: Here's What You Need to Know 1 day 15 hours ago rhiannon

Do you have any citations for that information? I would appreciate it if you know where you saw it and would pass it along.

My understanding is that Google Drive and Google One are two different services.

Google Drive is a free storage service provided to anyone with a Google account and isn't shutting down according to Google.

Google One is a paid subscription that gives you more storage across Google services and isn't being discontinued as far as I can determine.

Google Photos is not closing or shutting down according to Google.

Google Plus recently shut down. Photos there needed to be moved to Google Photos or downloaded before the April 2, 2019 shut down date if you wanted to retain them. All other Google Plus data could be download via Google's Takeout. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Best Free "Second Opinion" Malware Scanner 3 days 2 hours ago George.J

Zemana has a portable version for v2.74 and an installer version for v3.0. I have reviewed v2.74 in this article because it's better than v3.0 which removed some cool features of v2.74, and their creator has left the company, I believe. 

Zemana like other Second opinion scanners here doesn't have real-time protection, which is why it's listed as trial version in download page with an option to upgrade. However scanning and removal of malware is totally free.

As far as I can make out this is the freeware link and I've also changed this in the product details. MC - Site Manager https://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Zemana-AntiMalware.shtml
"The free version of Zemana AntiMalware isn't exactly packed with features, but the upside is that new users should have no problems figuring out how everything works. A scan can be launched in just a few seconds, and it will be over almost as quickly. No scanning options need to be configured, as one click is all it takes."

@Mr. George J.

Dear Mr. George, you write "Portable installer".
That is an oxymoron.
If it has an installer it ain't portable, if it's portable it doesn't need/have an installer.

But more importantly and seriously:
Why are you clameing to look for on-demand scanners only?

Emsisoft full version and Malwarebytes can in their paid-for versions run as full resident AV programs. And they both are WAY lighter on system resources than the functionally overburdened McAffee, Norton and so son crap programs (IMHO at least).

I regularly clean up lots of older machines and see it all the time that slow and sluggish systems start to run "nicely" the moment any of these "big name" systems are finally removed.

And you write about Malwarebytes' "nag screen". Heck, Malwarebytes need to make some money, right?
Had you taken the time to look through the settings you might have found the switch to tell it NOT to start with every Windows startup. So the user gets ONE reminder to upgrade to the for-pay version when he/she starts the on-demand scan once a month. Small price for the fastest and in my experience currently by far best malware scanner out there that never ever has conflicted with Windows Defender and/or MS Security Essentials. Again, only my experience.
YMMV

I'm glad you found it useful.
It is a work in progress, the paywalled sites change things regularly to make access more difficult so the dev has to keep up. Washington Post in particular is pretty aggressive in maintaining restrictions.
It's completely understandable, the print side of news is dying and revenue needs to come from somewhere. I have no problem paying for something I use regularly, but most of these I never visit and the few I do, I don't visit often. I'll drop my ad blocker while I'm at the site, but it's not economically feasible to pay for a yearly susbcription when I visit a site two or three times a year. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, incognito or Private windows worked for some time, but as you say, more and more sites are cracking down on that.
For some time you could access articles at the Washington Post and other sites using Google as a referrer - search for the article title, find the result at the site and you could read it by clicking the link and going to the site. That's being disabled more often as well. Using cached pages in Google Search was an option for a time, but I think most of the paywalled sites have disabled that.

To the best of my knowledge, Quake II RTX will be available as a direct download on NVIDIA's website on June 6.

If you want to play Quake II RTX for free, you need Quake II. It can be purchased at Steam or elsewhere if you don't have a copy.

Originally posted by Nvidia:
How Do We Get Quake II RTX?
On June 6th, at 6am PT, we’ll release Quake II RTX as a direct download on our website. This will include the first 3 levels of the game, released freely in 1997 as shareware, plus all our new technological enhancements, updated textures, and enhanced models.

If you have the original Quake II release, download and install Quake II RTX from our website, run the installer, and point it to the full copy of Quake II when prompted so it can copy over the full game’s levels and assets.

When you boot Quake II RTX, you’ll get to enjoy the complete campaign, and experience multiplayer with real-time path tracing.

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/quake-ii-rtx-june-6-release-date/

Requirements:

    OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit
    Processor: Intel Core i3-3220, or AMD equivalent

Best Free PC Cleaner 3 weeks 2 days ago gazzawazza

good post Blackbird

I agree - a refresh of this review category would be useful, particularly as I'd have thought it's a software category of interest to users.

I was looking at a computer magazine recently (thought it better to not name it, in case people felt i was advertising it) and they suggested ditching ccleaner for the reasons you've linked to.

I can't remember the alternative mentioned, so went searching.

I've NOT used either of these but just wanted to mention them, to flag that there are open source alternatives (no idea of potency/quality):

- mcleaner (github - last release aug 2016)
- bitbleach (own website and github - currently maintained v2.2 March 2019)

the latter seems to crop up on quite a lot of review / alternatives lists. Dunno if that's just plagiarism.

Must admit i like the ccleaner functionality - it's very easy, for example, to keep cookies that you want to retain (nice search/filter and include/exclude options). I like how you can delete restore points too.

Regards,

Gary

Yeah, the thrill of getting carpet bombed with the latest version of AOL Online (2.7) on an 800 KB Dual Sided "Floppy" disk (The first of their kind that weren't ACTUALLY Floppy) ... so that you could move up from a 600 Baud BBS to a "Real" online provider at 14.4K Baud (Dialup, of Course.) ... these Whippersnappers will never know it ... .

(I still vividly remember the Fax-Like buzzing it made as it was "Handshaking" the connection [Think 'R2D2 Cursing' ... ] - It's probably just PTSD from it.)

We've both been online since Jesus was a little boy, Huh?

Thank you for that.
I still have the mousepad that amazon sent out to customers as a gift - I think it may have been in their first year or two of business.

I would just download all 3,000+ SWF files in one massive folder and use

Swiff Player

https://www.globfx.com/products/swfplayer/

to play them ... and HOPE that it keeps on using the LAST version Flash Plugin ... forever ...

just as I hope that iSwiff on the Mac does the Same.

(Or I'm gonna miss these games. My Flash Experiences go as far back as "Radiskull and Devil Doll" - from 20 Years Ago ... back when Amazon was still learning to sell books online. Those were Heady days.)

Couldn't get it running on "Sierra" using "PlayOnMac" ...

I DID get the Flashpoint 6 Folder INTO the PlayOnMac "C:/" Drive, though. I MIGHT have gotten it to run but I read the "Read Me" first: and decided not to graft another head onto my shoulders ... (we might argue).

Just get the .swf Game Files themselves from the Flashpoint web site and use "iSwiff" https://echoone.com/iswiff/

 ... on Mac Systems
 
or "Swiff Player" https://www.globfx.com/products/swfplayer/ , for Windows Boxes, to play 'Em.

I tried to get Flashpoint 6 running with "PlayOnMac". I got as far as the "Read Me" and gave up.

Flashpoint runs a web and proxy server on your computer, changing your computer's proxy settings in order to send web games through our server for the purpose of defeating sitelocks, loading files and playing games. This will redirect web traffic that is not related to Flashpoint through our server while Flashpoint is running. While we do not gather, track or use web data passed through our server, other traffic may be negatively affected or stopped while it runs through our server. If you do not consent to this, do not use Flashpoint. If you use a system proxy on your computer already, we suggest backing up your proxy settings before using Flashpoint. We include the source code to our Redirector program in the Flashpoint FPSoftware/Redirector folder, and the web server is unmodified Apache, PHP and SQLite with a few custom scripts, and you are welcome to browse through them to ensure we aren't using your data for nefarious purposes.

No, I really didn't want all of my web traffic going through their servers ... I would choose something else instead. (I'll Tell.)

Get More Android Apps With No Geo-restrictions from Another Store 1 month 10 hours ago EldonW

Will give this a try since I have only used APKPure.
I have never used Google Play.

Edit: I just downloaded WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.153.
The apk file is 23.8 MB and yet the site lists the size as 35.7 MB.

For years you've helped Me out, and saved my bacon, with your good suggestions. So, I'm honored that I dragged something in that was useful to YOU,  just this once.

But now I'm curious ... what OS are you running? And which of those suggestions was the winner, as far as you were concerned? (I'm on OS X 10.12.6 and "iSwiff" is one of those sweet little 'hidden gems' that I like so much - gotta share that one with my buddies!)

In the future, when you are posting "Windows Only" programs, feel free to add mentions of "Winebottler", and those two "PlayOn ..." Applications: so those of us that are "Windows challenged" might have a shot at using them anyway. This Mac Freeware Category has 3 such choices: https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/best-free-software-mac-os.htm?p...

Mind you, none of those 3 are "perfect" emulators on the Mac (Nor are "Wine" and "PlayOnLinux" perfect emulators on Linux) ... there are going to be SOME programs that just won't work under them. But it sure gives us "Think Different" types a SHOT at getting the program to work for US!

Sounds like Mac Users could use either "PlayOnMac" https://www.playonmac.com/en/ or "Winebottler" http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/downloads to try to run this "Windows ONLY" Application.

If they download JUST the Games themselves (As .SWF Files) ... I play all of my SWF games, on my Mac, with "iSwiff" https://echoone.com/iswiff/ ... which you will want to go get and install, NOW, before Adobe pulls the plug on the format. (Get all 103 GB of games and see which ones "launch" ... I'll bet you'll be busy for a while.)

Linux Users COULD Try out "PlayOnLinux" https://www.playonlinux.com/en to see if Flashpoint works under it. (You probably need the MONO Framework, also.)

I hope this Helps!!! C. Mc.
