  2. Over the past few days I've been messing with my home server and trying different Linux distros. I've gone from: Ubuntu > Xubuntu > Arch (trying to set it up but realizing I'm not ready for it yet) > Xubuntu > Manjaro So far, Manjaro XFCE has been to my liking. Fewer issues and things have been much easier to set up on that old machine. Just a shame the hardware is so old. P4 3.4GHz, 3GB RAM, and recently had to downgrade the PSU and graphics card (128MB card because the one before - a 512MB - had the fan go bad and make a lot of noise despite trying to fix it) in order to hav

  3. No doubt that was the problem. Another reason to do a clean install, if you don't have lots of extra HD space. I just did some research and found out you can remove those recovery files with the Disk Cleanup utility, just select clean up system files. You lose the option to roll back then, of course.

  5. Microsoft is removing part of its controversial Wi-Fi Sense feature from Windows 10. "We have removed the Wi-Fi Sense feature that allows you to share Wi-Fi networks with your contacts and to be automatically connected to networks shared by your contacts," says Microsoft's Gabe Aul. "The cost of updating the code to keep this feature working combined with low usage and low demand made this not worth further investment." Wi-Fi Sense was originally introduced on Windows Phone and then updated and included with Windows 10. It's a feature that lets you automatically connect to open hotspots,

  6. A commissioner at the US Federal Trade Commission who is leaving the agency after six years of working on consumer privacy issues has some critical words for the ad industry. Speaking with Ad Age, departing FTC commissioner Julie Brill lamented the current state of consumer tracking and data collection on the web, linking the rampant rise of ad blockers with the ad industry's foot-dragging and non-cooperation in the commission's efforts to create privacy systems based on user consent. "We've seen an incredible rise in consumers taking matters into their own hands, which is precisely

  7. It looks like Firefox 64-bit may have launched to the stable channels. I was poking around earlier when I saw 42.0 b1 x64 had landed. I checked for a stable build and when I added 64 after win, I got a successful download. https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-42.0-SSL&os=win64&lang=en-US It sure looks like a stable build, is this official? I hope so!

  8. Microsoft Edge comes with Microsoft's own default search engine, Bing.com. That's not a problem if you like Bing but it is if you want another search engine, such as Google. The solution is a bit elaborate. - Open Microsoft Edge and goto 'Google.com' - Select the “…” more menu in the top right corner - Select Settings from the menu - Scroll down to “View advanced settings” and hit the button - Scroll down to “Search in the address bar with” and hit the button - Choose “Add new” - You'll now see a list of available search engines - Choose “Add as default”

  10. I found a few sites (a couple of them reputable) that have removal instructions for "Meteoroids", an adware that hooks itself into web browsers - perhaps that's what you have? It appears that you can remove it with AdwCleaner: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/adwcleaner.html   (I've used it myself, good program).<edit> see 2 posts down for details

  11. There's lots of talking going around about the free upgrade. I'd like to get myself Windows 8 just to try it and be able to get the free upgrade to Windows 10.   Why is it now Windows 10 instead of 9? Because of third party programmers using the wrong code.   Quote source: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/2hwlrk/new_windows_version_will_be_called_windows_10/ckwq83x   A huge offender is Java, just take a look at https://searchcode.com/?q=if%28version%2Cstartswith%28%22windows+9%22%29

  12. Both Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware create scan logs by default - unless you've either deleted the logs or uninstalled the programs, the logs should be there.   Also, it may have hijacked the shortcuts that open the browsers. I skimmed through a thread on the Malwarebytes forum where they assisted a user in removing DOSEARCHES, and after everything should have been cleaned out there was still a problem - turned out that the browser shortcuts were opening DOSEARCHES. Right-click on the browser shortcuts, select "Properties", and check the Target - it should contain nothing but the pat

  18. In order to help stop some of the spam registrations here on the forums I have just added and enabled a StopForumSpam hook. This hook will check registrations against the StopForumSpam database, checking key factors such as email addresses and IP addresses. If their IP or email is matched in the StopForumSpam database, this user is automatically banned and cannot use the forums. If you come across a spammer or even a potential spammer, please don't hesitate to hit the Report button so the Lunarsoft Team can look into it.

  19. Thread cleaned. Stay on topic, this is a topic about SOPA/PIPA. No country is perfect. If all the countries in the world were perfect, we'd have world peace, no one would be starving and many other common world issues would not exist. It is not the fault of one country or another. That said, I will reinforce what I have already said. This is about SOPA and PIPA, something that will hurt all of the Internet. I suggest everyone takes the time to learn about it and help stop it now. If there is some sort of problem on the forums - or any such post that violates our rules - use the Report bu

    Hello

    Sup, My name is Aaron and I hail from California. I am a GW Guru patron and recently I have been having some problems, the biggest one being my computers CPU hitting 100% capacity with just GW running while its a DC 2.7 Pentium 4. This immediately brought me to the conclusion that it was malware and so embarked on a crusade to rid my computer of it. Norton, being my primary firewall, AV and AS, couldn't detect anything even while running in safe mode. This was very frustrating because it meant I now had to search for a suitable solution on the internet. Right after Norton had failed to do w

    The update for version 1.16 is simply a definitions update. No update to the base software. Regretably, they've made almost exactly the same mistake as was made in some previous updates (see my first post ) and this 16-12-11 update will also trash the Registry by removing some JavaScript entries. For this reason, the update is NOT recommended! .

  26. Fantastic! Thanks for the help, everyone. Behaviour fixed, files cleared, so back to normal - and thank goodness for that! Tarun: I'll swap out AVG for MSE this afternoon. Thanks for the recommendation. As for toolbars, it's always a balance of risk vs convenience. Personally, the benefit from Lastpass' toolbar (and system) is worth it to me. And I'm using Easylist too - it's great. Big thank you everyone - I really appreciate it, and I've just made a small donation to show my gratitude.

  28. Also, if you don't like the previous change, made in Firefox 6, which was to have only the base domain in black and white and the rest of the URL in the address bar in a rather weedy pale grey, then you can modify browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled to false as well. So, setting browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled to false will put everything back to black and white and setting browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false will show http:// again, which is doubly useful because there is a bug with cutting and pasting URLs when it is missing. That bug is marked WONTFIX for Firefox 7. .

  30. Okay recently the Anti-Malware Toolkit started this first problem a month or so ago, it stopped downloading the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Program, I had to use the link in the program when the Malwarebytes program was highlighted to go to the site and download it manually, I think it is due to they redid their site and the area the toolkit went to to download isn't there anymore, it has been either changed or moved. Also today the CCleaner isn't downloading right anymore, it downloads but the program is not working, I had to go to Priliform to get it as well. That may have been a corruption

  31. CCleaner breaks because we use the Slim build in AMT. That's because Slim has no browsers or toolbars bundled. Whenever they update they take weeks to get the Slim build out - which is very annoying. I may have to link to the standard build and include a warning with it, though I would prefer to keep it with the Slim build. I usppose it ultimiately comes down to if people want the Slim build without fear of toolbars and browsers (Chrome) or the Standard which can offer one or both of those, but have an up-to-date CCleaner. The Malwarebytes issue is fixed, thanks for bringing that issue to

    Google+

    No, and not likely to, because Google is making ALL profiles public as part of Google+ Any that are not public will be deleted at the end of this month. If you haven't reviewed your Google Account settings lately, you should check sooner rather than later. See the writeup from The F-Secure AV people, who consider this a Google privacy failure: Is this a Google privacy fail? .

    Firefox 4.0

    Firefox (referred to as Fx) is an open source browser developed by Mozilla. The second most popular browser worldwide, Firefox features a customizable user interface that allows you to enhance it using custom themes and Personas. Personas change the appearance of the user interface without rearranging the elements. Themes however, can completely change the UI ranging from the types of buttons to the color sceme used. Add-ons allow you to customize Firefox to your liking to make a more enjoyable web surfing experience. Some examples of popular add-ons that you can use to customize Firefox are A

  34. I agree progress must move forward, but... ...you can add all the widgets you want (including ads), if the site has an identity crisis - people wont stay, they may register, but what's the average post count after say 2 or 3 (beyond asking for help)? Are they contributing to the site, do they stick around to create a social community or network as you put it? I admit, the recent changes left me (just my opinion) with the impression you're going for a more automated format - with the news etc - and were turning away from a social site. All I know is, I don't blame any site for lots of con

  35. It might be more accurate to say that "Microsoft marketing does not want to improve privacy of IE", rather than Microsoft as a whole. I understand the sentiment, but when the product group makes a product, management is paying for it. If they want it to be less secure so that marketing can push ads, development complies or finds a new job .

  37. I think that is why you have 0 reputation points - (like me) We should refer to things as they are usually - Many posts say they have a 'virus' or 'trojan' when it is an 'infection' - I think that is a much better term - It is also more realistic as some 'bugs' do not fit either description - Some 'rogues' are neither but can be put in more as scam type infections - ;)

  38. IP.Board 3 has been released and we will be upgrading soon. The forums will be offline for the duration of the upgrade. Since this is a major version upgrade the time that it may take is unknown. The frontpage will have news about the upgrade, however. When it is complete the forums will be back online and there will be a post on our frontpage.
