  1. MVPS Host File has been updated. https://mvpshostsnews.blogspot.com/2019/02/mvps-hosts-file-update-february-08-2019.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+HostsNews+(Hosts+News) Update via HostXpert worked perfectly.
  2. I tried v5.42 and had the same issue so I downloaded v5.40 and the issue was resolved. Thanks again for your help!
  3. Ahh, good 'ole FileHippo. I was searching for a previous versions download source. Thanks again mta. Take care mate.
  4. I am having exactly the same issue; however, I have Windows 10.
  5. My point seems to have been missed. What I am saying is this: in this particular case, me posting on two forums asking for recommendations on uninstallers, should not be an issue - i.e. it should not be frowned upon. I just wanted to know if anyone is using (or have used) a good alternative to Revo Uninstaller. Like I said, I (or anyone) should be able to do this on any number of forums. In this case, I believe it's totally ethical. The idea is to get as many opinions as possible. What possible difference does it make that I asked the same question on another forum (or 200 forums).
  6. I would like to clarify something and I sincerely hope you will take the time to read this. I received a message that stated I should not have posted my uninstaller topic (https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=48545) on another forum ( https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/651205/what-uninstallers-would-be-on-the-top-2-or-top-3-list/ ). In the past, on another topic, I had done so and was informed that I was wrong in doing so. At that time with that particular topic I understood the points made about posting on another forum and I agreed that I should not have done so. Bec
  7. Given what you pointed out regarding IObit in your first post and also the fact that some people just simply don't like any IObit product, I think I'll skip it in my program. So within my program I'm leaning towards using Geek Uninstaller as the alternative to Revo Uninstaller.
  8. Our laptops don't have a CD drive, thus I'll backup onto a USB drive (i.e. not a stick). Dennis, thank you so very much for your great post. I so very much appreciate the time and effort you have spent helping me with this. To be sure I will never lose the info you've provided, I copy & pasted your post into my word processor and took a snip image of your image. You never know if this post gets lost in cyberspace someday. I'll be trying the image backup, according to your guide, tomorrow. It'll be great to finally get this done. Thanks again mate!
  9. Thanks Andavari. I gather GeekUninstaller is very good also.
  10. IMO, Revo Uninstaller should be the top of any Uninstaller list. What Uninstaller would you rate as being second best (or perhaps even equally as good)? The reason I'm asking is because in my program I would like to provide an alternative uninstaller to Revo Uninstaller and I want the alternative to be a good one.
  11. Hi Tasgandy, glad to be of service When you've checked them out, let me know what you think. More info regarding ZAM can be found in this post: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/648740/zemana-anti-malware/
  12. Are you kidding! You have put my concerns at rest! Thank you so very much Dennis. What you said in the above was my biggest concerns. I had no intention of using a USB stick for backup, but I'll be honest, I did not realize that they can go t**s up (as you said). I have a 1TB USB drive and with my C drive having 68GB of data, that 1TB should do me for quite sometime. Now I just have to make sure I do the Macrium backups correctly.
  13. @Andavari Are you saying that it's best not to save system image (using Macrium) directly onto a USB drive? BTW, our laptops don't have a CD drive.
  14. To be very honest, I've been a bad boy. I have still not performed an image backup on my laptop or my wife's laptop. One holdup has been in trying to decide on the USB to use - i.e. it's my understanding that any data you have on the USB will get wiped out when it gets formatted by Macrium - I assume this only happens prior to the initial backup and not on subsequent backups - is this correct? So anyway, I need to buy another USB. The following specs from my laptop, as per Speccy, indicates I need to buy a USB drive (I guess a 1TB USB drive would be a good choice): Partition 0 Part
  15. Hi Tasgandy. You certainly seem well protected. I know zero about Webroot Secure, I guess it's very good or I'm sure you would have replaced it. I use Kaspersky Total Security 2017 and I'm very satisfied. One thing you may want to consider is running a weekly on-demand malware scan with something other than Malwarebytes. I personally have Zemana AntiMalware (ZAM) running real-time protection and then I use Malwarebytes 3 and SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) for on-demand malware scans once a week. In your case, consider using ZAM or perhaps both ZAM & SAS, for on-demand scans. As you likel
  16. I agree mta - hopefully Piriform will pursue this.
  17. It's interesting to note that the URL is "http://www. ccleaner.online/", but on the website it reads "CC Cleaner" - i.e. note the three Cs.
  18. I can see opinions vary quite a bit in regards to defragging. In my program, I've decided to include defrag as part of monthly tasks. I'm guessing that for the average user this frequency is probably about right. In my program I currently only recommend Defraggler. Do you think it would be a good idea to offer a second option for defragging - i.e. is it beneficial to use two defraggers? If so, for a novice, do you recommend Puran Defrag or Auslogics Defrag?
  19. Andavari, I missed this portion of your post when I read it in May. Just wanted to say that this in itself speaks so well for SAS. I hope SAS never disappears.
  20. Off topic, but interesting - Operating System market share as of May 2017: https://www.netmarketshare.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx?qprid=10&qpcustomd=0 Windows 7 makes up say 50% of the market and Windows 7 comes with .NET Framework 3.5 installed (assuming 7 with SP 2). .NET 3.5 can run on 85% of Windows without additional Framework install (10, 8.1, 8 & 7). Looks like I should have targeted 3.5 instead of 4.0 It's too bad that .NET Framework is such a major hassle for XP users. The problem I have is that in 2008 when I asked programmers what programmin
  21. I do believe you're right Willy2. A long time ago I did install .NET Framework on my XP system and if my memory serves me right, it did take a long time.
  22. I believe it's .NET Framework 3.5
