  2. The COVID-19 pandemic is a very unfortunate thing to be happening to all of us worldwide. Many have now been told to work from home, or simply quarantined. This may be for two weeks or even longer, the duration is unclear at this time. Working from home means using your tech to accomplish all kinds of tasks remotely, even meetings and conferences. If something was to go wrong and all non-essential stores are closed because of COVID-19, you may not be able to get your computer or devices fixed. This is a reminder that - as always - Lunarsoft offers completely free tech support, and most of the work can be done remotely too! Software level items are much easier to diagnose, though a hardware level issue isn't quite as simple though may still be possible. Do not hesitate to ask for help or assistance. These forums are monitored often daily. Should anyone need any help, ask! The Lunarsoft Wiki has numerous helpful articles and is always ready to be expanded to help further. Thank you all for reading this, and please stay safe! Tarun
  3. In this, an MSN blogger will talk about how his experiences with Firefox have lead him to feel that Firefox beats Chrome. Yesterday I used Google Chrome to download the newly released Firefox 74 and I don’t want to switch back. Let me back track a little. I used to be a Netscape Navigator guy, then I moved to Internet Explorer and enjoyed those... Read more about After years of Google Chrome, Firefox beats Chrome on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  4. Google openly admits user suspicions about Chrome tracking. Google has stopped claiming that an identifier it uses internally to track experimental features and variations in its Chrome browser contains no personally identifiable information. In February, Arnaud Granal, a software developer who works on a Chromium-based browser called Kiwi, claimed the X-client-data header, which Chrome sends to Google when a Google webpage has been requested,...

  5. Firefox (referred to as Fx) is a free and open source browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation. Mozilla’s team continues to focus on fixing bugs and adding useful features. Improving the user experience is especially important to the team. Users will enjoy that Firefox 67 focuses on speed, privacy, and security. In fact, you’ll get all of these things straight out of the box.... Read more about Firefox 74 on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  6. What do you think when you hear they found Windows safer than Mac? The Mac vs. PC debate isn’t nearly as intense as it was earlier in the 21st century, but a new malware report could stoke the flames a little bit for the first time in years. Antivirus company Malwarebytes released a big ol’ report about the prevalence of different types of malware... Read more about Windows safer from malware than Macs on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  7. Google will be removing the classic interface from YouTube in March of 2020. Google introduced a new look for YouTube in 2017 for desktop browsers, which polarized its audience who either hated or loved the new experience. The company went on to make numerous tweaks, the last of which made video thumbnails a bit too large for comfort, prompting a wave of outrage from...

  8. A Windows 7 shutdown bug has appeared that will require an out of service fix from Microsoft. Microsoft was supposed to have ended Windows 7 support in mid-January, but it can’t seem to completely let go — and neither can some PCs, apparently. Many users on Microsoft’s forums, Reddit and elsewhere are reporting that their Windows 7 systems refuse to shut down or reboot... Read more about Bug prevents proper Windows 7 shutdown on Lunarsoft.

  9. While Windows 7 support has ended, and it's rather expensive if you want to pay to keep Windows up to date, there is a better option that's still free. You can still upgrade to Windows 10, completely free. You simply need the Media Creation Tool or Windows 10 Upgrade Helper. Both utilities can be found on this page. Your best course of action is to make a proper backup, then wipe your drive and install Windows 10 using your Windows 7 key.
  10. Microsoft will continue to issue updates for Windows Defender on Windows 7. That's really good news for those few that really don't want to take the free update to Windows 10, or are unable to due to hardware limitations. Nice thing is that Windows Defender is one of the top rated anti-virus products out there.

  15. Hi @phk1 and welcome to the Lunarsoft Forums! This looks like a similar issue about the Anti-Malware Toolkit, so I've moved it to that forum. Apologies if that was a mistake. Please see the linked post below for an explanation regarding this issue.
  16. Hi for all. I installed the program and always when I try run I receive the message: An error occurred parsing the xml. Unexpected error in a submission. The underlying connection was closed. How fix it? Thank you.
  17. Very much looking forward to this! I use DNS over TLS on my router, and the fact that this will also be built into the OS itself soon is a huge step forward. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Networking-Blog/Windows-will-improve-user-privacy-with-DNS-over-HTTPS/ba-p/1014229
  18. Browser security extensions aren’t automatically safer — they might even make things worse. Mozilla pulls Avast’s Online Security and SafePrice extensions for Firefox, plus their AVG-branded equivalents, after AdBlock Plus creator Wladimir Palant found they were collecting much more data than necessary. This included a detailed web history that went well beyond site addresses and search history, including when and how long you visit...

  19. A nascent web API called getInstalledRelatedApps for app detection offers a glimpse of why online privacy remains such an uncertain proposition. In development since 2015, Google has been experimenting with the API since the release of Chrome 59 in 2017. As its name suggests, it is designed to let web apps and sites determine whether a corresponding native app is installed on a user’s...
