I certainly am no expert and have many questions myself. Not everybody knows everything, which is a good thing! Just think how boring it would if one person knew it all.

I do have a question, though concerning my settings in my Windows Defrag. It is set to do scan on Wednesday's at 1am. Now, WU's will commence once you boot your computer if it is set at some odd time of day when you never have your computer turned on. Will the defrag do so as well??

I think the problem with my system at the moment is that I have trashed it by helping others and not removing the programs that I have downloaded to experiment with prior to posting instructions to an OP. I have so many folder filled with experiments and when I clean my desktop, I just create another folder after I drop the previous folder in my need to review before deleting desktop folder since I do keep all my tweaked canns in case I need them at a later time.

I also need to update drivers, other software, etc.

Ooops! Late for work again!  :laughing:

Have a nice day all!

Pale Moon 25.0.2 (2014-10-24)

This is a small update to address a number of teething problems with the new milestone release.

Fixes/changes:

•Added a "Firefox compatibility mode" selection in Options -> Advanced.
 This mode is enabled by default (reluctantly so), because too many websites (including some very big players who, themselves, promote an Open Web...) still use very poor browser detection methods based on arbitrary User Agent string comparisons, not catering to alternative browsers, and the resulting user experience being poor (being presented with mobile site layouts, broken pages, or even being flat-out refused service because someone exercises freedom of choice for web browser used). This should alleviate most, if not all, issues with browser-discriminating websites.

•Improved active tab display on particularly dark personas.
 People using "black" personas/lightweight themes should now have a lot less difficulty distinguishing the active tab.

•Disabled SSL 3.0 by default (to put a muzzle on the POODLE).
 Please note that this may cause issues with some poorly configured web servers (usually ones with a hopelessly broken security setup that do not support TLS 1.2 or secure (re)negotiation of the protocol).

•Fixed add-on update issue (that was preventing update checking through addons.palemoon.org).

•Fixed the redundant redundancy in asking redundantly if the browser would be allowed to ask to install an extension when not on addons.mozilla.org.

•Fixed the internal UA-sniffing insanity that broke devtools in a few different and colorful ways.

I thought we had resolved that past matter amicably. The first reply was verifying corporate status, the second explaining privacy rights are waived on corporate computers. The follow-up replies were dismissive of the message, so my reply was more firm and direct, including a real-life story of how some thought they could get away with it but were caught (to try and exemplify the risk and hopefully spare you from the same experience), and I also wanted to be helpful and provided a working solution to use the machines in a way that would disable any monitoring (the live CDs).

A challenge of communicating over a medium where we cannot see or hear each other is misunderstanding intent. Precision Questioning and Answering may help explain the brevity of some of my replies. Sometimes I give a longer reply; sometimes I'm brief, bright and gone.

Getting back towards topic, more information on defrag and Windows: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/improve-performance-defragmenting-hard-disk?woldogcb=0#1TC=windows-7. Agree on not defragging a SSD drive; Windows also won't do it by default (source).

A Mac disk also gets fragmented; similarly, the OS manages it (source).
