Now unable to watch videos. Software says it is not supported. Why?

This is really good!! I look forward to more Ellp cards!

Unless you boot into safe mode to remove a sys file left over by the previous build, you cannot even install this one!

They don't cleanly uninstall their own software so leaves problems for a new install. I am over this.

On my machine I have SyncBackFree and it is set to backup myDocuments at 5 am every day. This program prevents that from happening as well as a manual back-up. I recommend BitDefender Anti-Ransomeware.

This is my default browser, and one that i am very happy with, as a person that enters many competitions, the form filler and various extention' s are excellent,

The installer is Korean. I had to accept the default settings with no idea what they meant. Found it added too much to the registry for my taste.

Over the years I've frequently deployed ResHack in order to personalize programs I use, such as putting in better or custom graphics and correcting annoying spelling mistakes. But it can do much more, and stands as one of the best tools available for Windows hacking.

500 mb recovery for a free data recovery program is a piddance. There are much better free data recovery software out there that is TRULY free without getting you to download then baiting to buy the pro version.

Not exactly freeware. It installs as a non registered version.

"Following a recent upgrade, I found the programme did not function correctly and sent emails asking for help.
After about two weeks, and using the two email addresses I had for them, I eventually got an email acknowledging receipt of email, but offering no Tech Support.
I complained and asked for a refund on my recently renewed upgrade but was told that, as I do not have a PayPal account, they are unable to refund my money -- Simple Bank Transfers seem to be beyond their capability.
This is not the first time their Technical Support has been completely lacking.
One month on, still no "fix" and still no refund.
My advice is to avoid this company and product."

The write up describes the free version. This is the Trial Software. As far as I know, there is no longer a free version.

Joseph, correct, but we don't re-write reviews for every single application change - this would just be unfeasible.

Although free to use, this is a trial and adds its own watermark comment!

For a number of years FF was my default browser. I think starting with version 40 (?), up to now, FF never worked properly on my Lenovo G50-70 or my two other computers. Poor page loading, jittery, then to just finally freeze up on me. I tried FF 48 final today and had the same crappy results. These days my default is cyberfox 48 and it is excellent. Too bad FF became a lame browser, but Cyberfox is an outstanding replacement.

Performance is noticeably slower in all areas.

I use Advanced IP Scanner. Reliable and free network scanner to analyse LAN. The program scans all network devices, gives you access to shared folders and FTP servers, provides remote control of computers (via RDP and Radmin), and can even remotely switch computers off. It is easy to use and runs as a portable edition. It should be the first choice for every network admin. http://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com

"which should offer some protection against ransomware"

Not a very inspiring verdict.
Seems likely that ransomware will perform one or more of the common disguises & therefore be undetected by this program.
To warrant download & install we need more info about which ramsomware is known to be vulnerable to detection by this program.

Surprising to see no comments recorded.
How does this product compare with the many other Rescue Disc prep programs available?

downloads.pcauthority.com.au reply:

Comments are only "recorded" when someone writes a comment :)

Why don't you download and comment?

A far better option is to use the portableapps.com Platform 14 installer. Many of these apps have portable versions and the less you install on Windows the better it functions and the longer it remains stable. Platform 14 provides a start menu and updates apps as they become available.

Freemake Video Converter 4.1.9.54

Freeware

As you'll guess from the name, Freemake Video Converter is able to convert videos from one format to another - but that's just the start of its capabilities.

The program imports a lengthy list of video formats, and can convert them to AVI, WMV, MP4 and 3GP formats. If you just want the file to play on a particular device, though, you can simply select one of many built-in device profiles. Choose the "to MP4" conversion option, for instance, and you can choose from presets including "iPhone, iPod Touch", "iPhone 4, iPad", "iPod Classic, Nano", "iPod 5G", "PSP", "Smartphones" and "Digital media players". Pick the option that best suits your hardware and Freemake Video Converter will prepare the file for you right away.

There's also support for ripping DVDs (unprotected only), and if you drag in a number of videos then the program will burn them to a video DVD. There's not a great deal of control over the results - you can choose text, thumbnail or motion menus, for instance, but can't significantly customise them - however this does make the process very quick and easy.

If you'd prefer to share your clips with the world, though, it might be easier to put them on YouTube - and Freemake Video Converter can do that, too. Just import the relevant videos, click the To YouTube button, enter your account details and the clips will be published for you.

And other features allow you to join videos, extract the soundtrack from a movie, create photo slideshows, and more.

Version 4.1.9.54 (Changelog):
    - Added drag-n-drop support
    - Fixed the problem with Vimeo download

O&O Defrag Free Edition 14.1.431 (64-bit)

Free, for personal-use only

Let us be frank: the Windows Defragmentation tool is best described as functional. Defragging your hard drive is an essential part of PC maintenance as otherwise files get scattered in multiple segments (or fragments) all over your drive, forcing the disk’s mechanical parts to work harder to piece them back together when they’re needed. Net result: files are slower to access, so computer slows down, but another side-effect is that the drive’s temperature increases and its moving parts wear out that much quicker.

XP’s Defrag tool doesn’t even run automatically, so it’s essential you find another solution. And even though Windows 7 and Vista do attempt to run on a weekly basis, the default timing isn’t great and the results are barely adequate. Your hard drive is the biggest bottleneck in your system, so it pays to make sure it’s defragged regularly to give it the best possible chance of performing at a half-decent level.

Third-party defrag tools have long trumped Windows’ own meagre efforts, and in recent years a number of powerful, versatile and feature-rich freebies have come on to the market, such as Puran Defrag Free and Auslogics Disk Defrag. That probably explains why O&O – one of the pioneers in disk defrag technology – has finally wised up to the fact it needs to provide a free version of its own defrag tool to appeal to the home market.

The net result is this: O&O Defrag Free Edition. It’s based on its Professional big brother, so you enjoy the top-notch performance gains and light system footprint that it brings. The downside is that it’s actually a cut-down version, so you’re only able to use one of two defrag methods (as opposed to eight in the full version), neither of which will keep your drive defragged in the background as you work. There’s no boot-time defragmentation either for system files, and while the program comes with three “zones” for placing files in for best performance on your drive, you can’t actually configure them as you can with the Pro Edition.

It sounds churlish to mention these limitations in the free version, but we do so because many of these options are available in other free tools, so should be noted here. However, if you’re looking for a “set-it-and-forget-it” solution and are happy for your drive to be defragged on a regular basis, then O&O Defrag Free definitely represents a step up from the basic tool provided by Windows itself.

This is the 64-bit version of O&O Defrag Free Edition: a separate build is available for 32-bit versions of Windows.
