  1. Very nice. One little issue, it's a bit harder to tell which threads in a topic have not been read yet. The bold type is not as obvious here on firefox 82.0.2 on puppy linux. A nit-pick, but there it is fwiw.

    Hunh. Didn't know that. He was really something, wasn't he?

  4. SpywareBlaster still works for Windows 2000 thru Windows 10. You can update through the program or by running the installer exe. Just did it both ways here on xp. Information and download link here: https://www.brightfort.com/sbupdate.html support for Microsoft Edge (Chromium) support Brave support Vivaldi support Enhanced Google Chrome support Improved Mozilla Firefox support Enhanced Windows 10 support Enhanced support for high-DPI displays
  5. Thanks for finding that. Do people really believe such statements as that from Brave? How can one "accidentally" write such code? Fool me once, your fault, fool me twice, my fault. (Not you, Hazelnut, of course, but BrendanEich.)
  6. Just now got a "504 Gateway Time-out" message a couple of times. isup me showed the forum to be up but I couldn't log in. All is well now, just an FYI.
  7. I did delete those tasks. Maybe no need, but afaik no harm either. Will run it a bit to see what happens. Quite so. Should be easier to get rid of when they expire.
  8. Hi, Ishan. Great to see you again. How time does fly. Stay safe.
  9. Thanks again, nukecad. ADW cleaner did indeed work just as you said. I was afraid it would run before I was ready, but it waits for you to "say go". Still, fwiw, I make a trial run with software like that just in case. Macrium reflect images make that easy. As I recall, Hazelnut recommended Macrium. What would I do wihout you guys? This computer runs much better without all that stuff.
  10. AdwCleaner from Malwarebytes . . .running it, thanks. It's done. Fast. It found the ebay link and hp sotware, including one which I thought was gone. Says it found 41 items but only lists 9. Is 41 the number of registry entries, you suppose? Will run it again when SD is off and see what happens. Thanks again.
  11. Well, that was a chore! I remember now that those softwares were useful at first, helped to check & troubleshoot. No use now, of course. There might be a quicker way, but I investigated each software separately before uninstalling it. They are indeed tightly bundled. Many odd glitches during the removal process, but nothing crashed and all seems well now. I tried it w/ shadow defender on at first, to save me from my own mistakes, but eventually just gave that up and made a macrium differential image at each critical stage. Five or six minutes for each. Fwiw, using the
  12. Update. I am going to wait a bit before removing that HP software. On this win 7 computer that software seems to be tightly integrated with some funcions I want to keep. Not sure exactly how much stuff will be disabled. Just don't know enough about the issue to proceed yet. Might be a bit over my head.
  13. Right, and this computer is too old to benefit anyway.
  14. I intend to remove it soon. Have known it to be a chatty software. It MAY? affect the OEM backup system, not sure, but Macrium has that covered anyway. Thanks for the heads up.
  15. Yes indeed. Thanks to both for the heads up. Mypal browser is fast & functional on the old xp box, far superior to the last available Firefox. Runs great in sandboxie too. Can be set to automatically start in a sandbox if you wish.
  16. Merry Christmas and May God Bless.
  17. Great find, Hazelnut. Thanks for sharing.

  19. True, that xp file was on here before. I had not recognized that it was the same file for xp. So I carefully saved and installed it twice. No doubt that's why no restart was needed this time. That first link above was dated 17 jun 19, after that first post in May. That's my best excuse & I'm staying with it. Anyway, the files for the other OSs are different, might be of some use.
