Do You Want to Continue Receiving Information from Gizmo's Freeware? 3 months 3 weeks ago classicggma65

Thanx much for the info...and keep doing what you are doing. Without Gizmo I would not understand so many things and I would not have found all of the neat sites/software that I now have. My computer is safer because of you and I can say after several years I can actually understand at least half, if not a little more, of the comments. So much still to learn...

We would never have known about the extent of Facebooks intrusion. We were just fortunate that an insider from Cambridge Analytica revealed the truth. We then found over 89 million accounts had been hacked, including Mark Zuckerbergs !
Keep discussing the truths and avoid being reassured that your data is safe. Do not trust tech companies, they do not have your best interests at heart.

Watch carefully as operating systems like Windows 10 try to connect you even more closely to Microsoft servers (aka the Cloud).
Microsoft are planning in a short time, to even link your Clipboard to their cloud ! Do not let them do this

Qihoo must have poured millions of dollars in developing this product but it is quite BAD.

1.) Poor Realtime Protection
2.) Poor phishing Detection
3.) Performance Impact
4.) Too much advertisements and Privacy issues
5.) Extra tools are overemphasized and underpowered
6.) Intrusive and interface layout stressing non-essentials.
7.) Too many false positives by 360 Cloud Engine
8.) Poor Documentation

I know that its protection can be improves by enabling those 3rd party Bitdefender and Avira engines, but tests shoes in spite of that protection is not remarkable and performance impact goes very high.
Lots of negatives, like those Extra tools when seen from view point of a PC professional are bloatware and not absolutely essential.

Recommend Improvements:
1.) Have a crystal clear privacy policy
2.) Just use Bitdefender Engine by default and ditch 360 cloud engine forever.
3.) Non-intrusive and quality advertisements
4.) Improve real-time protection, program should immediately react to the presence of malware without executing them.
5.) Improve Phishing protection.
6.) Remove nonessential tools and do not emphasize them, like frequent cache cleaning and aggressive startup management.

Best Free Memory Optimizer 3 months 3 weeks ago ssybesma

This seems to work on my Dell Latitude E6400 which is already maxed out at 8GB RAM (chipset limit - no way to add more) and running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

If you are able to add more physical RAM, that is always going to be a lot better than using something like this. Memory is not that expensive.

But if you're up against the physical memory limit already, this can definitely help make the most of what you have.

It really seems to do a better job of squeezing out the optimal usage of memory than Windows does.

It can also help make up for poorly programmed apps that are memory leakers (keep increasing use of but don't release memory back to Windows).

Actually I am also very much eager to use Bitdefender Free Antivirus on my computer.
The only thing keeping me away from using this antivirus is that I will have to uninstall my existing antivirus which I do not want to do.
I am proud to tell everyone that traditionally I have been a long term user of Bitdefender free antivirus (during its previous years). I dropped it because of compatibility issues with windows 10. But now the picture has changed. In those days I felt sad that no one seemed to recognise such a great antivirus. It was highly underrated But hopefully now the things are turning in its favour.

Download its free antivirus which works on autopilot along with its small anti-ransomware software and you are good to go. As a matter of fact it provides most power protection against phishing also by directly scanning all http traffic. And all this for a free product where paid ones fail to match even the inbuilt protection of most popular browsers. Its zero day protection is also best in class.

Also it is worth mentioning that 360 total security lies at the opposite pole when compared to Bitdefender free antivirus. How............................

1.) 360 Total Security requires lots and lots of user input due to highly aggressive heuristics ( with all its features it is certainly a tool for experts ) while Bitdefender free antivirus uses highly advance detection techniques like "B-HAVE" (more on it later) and works without much user input.

2.) BITDEFENDER FREE = FREE.................NO DATA SHARED TO ANY THIRD PARTY........NOTHING.....A TRULY FREE PRODUCT.
360 TOTAL SECURITY IS FREE..........................MY DEAR BECAUSE YOU ARE A PRODUCT NOW. QIHOO IS AN ADVERTISING COMPANY LIKE GOOGLE. But worry not............Qihoo really cares for your privacy and you can trust it.

The only issue I have observed was videos (flash? & Twitter) at certain sites not playing or loading. White listing the entire site sometimes resolves and sometimes does not.

YouTube and it's embeds run fine. I do have both uBlock & Priv Badger as well as FlashStop running as well. Will investigate changing the WebRequest Controller in Trace, and see if that has any impact.

I heard back from the developer, if this doesn't answer all the questions let me know - they are very open to answering anything else. And of course you can contact them as well. Here's their response:
 

"Firstly, I personally use HTTPS Everywhere, find it very useful and necessary; Trace works well with it and although the two may conflict in some rare instances, it's never caused any problems whilst browsing the web for me.
 
 
As for the rest:
 - NoScript should also work fine with Trace although I haven't tested it, the main difference with NoScript and Trace is that NoScript can stop all JS running on a page whereas Trace aims to disable certain functions that can be used for tracking.
 - Privacy badger and Trace are very similar, personally I'd use Trace, but I suppose I am a bit biased.
 - Regarding better privacy, I know nothing about it due to the fact it was removed by its author.
 - Any VPN should work fine with Trace as the two will never interfere.
 
Concerning uBlock, you *can* use Trace and uBlock together, however if you do decide to do that, you should disable the WebRequest Controller in Trace so that they don't interfere. That would mean that uBlock handles all the domain blocking whilst Trace handles other things such as defending against Canvas & Audio Fingerprinting, Google tracking headers etc."

It can be enabled and disabled in the browser add-ons/ extensions settings.

If you want Trace turned off for a particulare site, click on icon in the toolbar and whitelist the site.

Thank you for your review of Trace, rhiannon!

Question: here are the security / privacy add-ons currently being used on Firefox (ESR 52.8):

— NoScript

— uBlock Origin

— HTTPS Everywhere

— Privacy Badger

— Better Privacy

— Hoxx VPN Proxy

Which, if any, of the above might Trace supersede (and / or would work well in conjunction with)?

Again, thank you!

Thanks, appreciated. Didn't try the Premium$ part though would be nice to add in development. Maybe next time.
Fast install from store. Right away results shown. It also has some anti-bitcoin ability. Been running 2 sep apps that
do that and surprised me with what they do report blocking. No major sites I believe since those rarely if ever triggered
but less used or known ones do pop up now & then. This extra layer should help. Even on a slow cable w/ Win x64 Pro
and high end PC there's no noticeable draw down on webbing & I have a lot of open web connected apps too. Test more.
Trace has been protecting you since 2018-05-25
Trace is currently blocking 2,781 records from the uncached Regular blocklist.

Download 92 Actual Size Printable Rulers For Free 3 months 4 weeks ago rhiannon

Oh what a great idea - much easier to read than most rules.

They are pretty accurate on my inkjet printer, more so on a laser printer. I printed out a few to test using a Shaedler Precision Rule (accurate to 1/5000th of an inch and photographically printed) and lines were exact to 1/4", were just a hair off on smaller increments. I would guess the printer has a part in that. An old inkjet never printed the same thing the same way twice - there was always 1/16" to 1/8" difference.

Sometimes a photo can be misleading but all the guesswork is eliminated when you include one of these rulers along side the object.

Greetings,

I am the Community Manager for the Microsoft Hyperlapse Pro Team. Yes, this is legit.
I am happy to provide a free product key as discussed above, but I can only do so if you specifically request it. Some folks are sending one-word messages like "Great", or "Cool". Since I manage several software apps, this can be confusing and will result in several emails before you get your key. Please be specific (and maybe say "please", that's always nice) so I can save us both a lot of time.

Thank you!

Avast Free Antivirus 4 months 3 days ago ILoveGizmo

The free version of Avast does NOT include a firewall, but is blocking Windows Firewall from working because it is telling Windows that it is taking care of that.. I see no way to work around this so will uninstall Avast. This is a very nasty tactic to try to force you into buying the version with firewall. I also have a paid version with all bells and whistles on another more critical computer and will not be renewing my license because of this sneakiness.

I wondered the same thing, since LIFE was being published later than that. I didn't find an answer to that during my research putting the article together.

OTOH, I apparently didn't thoroughly read the Wikipedia entry, because that's when they stopped publishing weekly issues:
"Industry figures showed that some 96 percent of Life circulation went to mail subscribers, with only 4 percent coming from the more profitable newsstand sales. Gary Valk was publisher when the magazine laid off hundreds of staff. The weekly Life magazine published its last issue on December 29, 1972."

I do have several apps which will block things I don't want intruding on my computer and this sounds like something else that would be very worthwhile. However, my expertise is not as great as I wish it were. Can you just download and Install Trace and let it do its thing? We all need as much protection as we can get because our privacy is being stolen from us by all kinds of unlawful means and I definitely think I need this application.

5.) https://antivirusprotection.reviews/review/360-total-security/

Qihoo must have poured millions of dollars in developing this product but it is quite BAD.
1.) Poor Realtime Protection
2.) Poor phishing Detection
3.) Performance Impact
4.) Too much advertisements and Privacy issues
5.) Extra tools are overemphasized and underpowered
6.) Intrusive and interface layout stressing non-essentials.
7.) Too many false positives by 360 Cloud Engine
8.) Poor Documentation

I know that its protection can be improves by enabling those 3rd party Bitdefender and Avira engines, but tests shoes in spite of that protection is not remarkable and performance impact goes very high.

Lots of negatives, like those Extra tools when seen from view point of a PC professional are bloatware and not absolutely essential.

MY SUGGESTIONS:

1.) Have a crystal clear privacy policy
2.) Just use Bitdefender Engine by default and ditch 360 cloud engine forever.
3.) Non-intrusive and quality advertisements
4.) Improve real-time protection, program should immediately react to the presence of malware without executing them.
5.) Improve Phishing protection.
6.) Remove nonessential tools and do not emphasize them, like frequent cache cleaning and aggressive startup management.

Best Free Drive Cloning Software 4 months 5 days ago AndyR

Thanks... It has been quite a long time since I last looked at Clonezilla I will have to give the latest version a look at on one of my test systems when I get chance. Something else lacking in some of the imaging software these days is the option to re-build / replace / not replace the MBR I know that is not relevant on a GPT drive but I bet a lot of people are still using MBR drives.

The thing is with Windows 10 though you don't have much control over it when it comes to multi boot (or anything else for that matter) and the ability to create up to 128 primary partitions on one GPT drive would have been useful many years ago but I don't see a whole lot of point in the need to have dreamed up that technology these days, couple that with the fact a BIOS is not just a BIOS anymore it's very over protective of what you wish to plug into "it's" main board and if you try and force it to accept something it really does not like then that is comparable to poking a bear with a stick !

I could say that your reply is pretty much what should have been in the article ie saying "beware, some progs are closed with prompts but it's up to the user to work out what is and is not being closed gracefully".

However, for me, the program is extremely useful. I have a buggy PC (hardware issue) and have to reboot every few days. This closes the 20 odd progs I have running at a click. I appear to get notices from all progs that prompt (an old Office 2001 Excel among them), although I do do some precautionary saving before I start...like you, "not sure" LOL.

It may be my buggy PC but HD sentinel seems to resist closing.

Big thanks for this one. Been years since the last time I was introduced to a "tinkering" program that was so helpful.

I recall quite a number of years back using a mixture of Windows and Linux flavors in a multi boot environment I used Grub to boot the Windows boot loaders, so I would have a Grub menu with the Linux systems and an option to boot Windows that would load another menu to boot into the various Windows systems quite complex to set up a first but all worked fine unless Windows in it's wisdom decided to change something and that was always a nightmare to fix...

As for paying for imaging software go's many of them don't offer much extra as far as usefulness go's in the paid for versions such as the ability to reinstate / migrate an image onto a different brand of computer for example something the average user would probably only use once or twice if ever, I have always had mixed results with that and should only be used in an emergency to gain access to your data on a different computer since I found the migrated system usually starts acting abnormally after a few weeks if not sooner...

The only imaging software I have ever paid for was one of the very early versions of Norton Ghost that I used to create factory install disks with since at the time it was the most advanced and reliable in my opinion, however these days like all Norton products it's bloated beyond belief and essentially "hijacks" your system.
