Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit
Version 9.0

Download: Link

Belarc Advisor automatically checks for, fetches, and installs Belarc Advisor Security Definition updates at each use, but you have to download and install the new program versions manually.

I use Firefox for most websites, but there are two of my usual sites where certain functions just don't work as well as they do with Edge. Disabling add-ons doesn't seem to improve things.

I'm nor saying there's anything special about Edge, but with Windows 10, I've got Edge anyway, and those particular site/functions work better.

Same here

Mary, glad your reviews got posted 👍

Mary, I have an issue now and then with Firefox not cooperating on things like this, and have to use another browser.  Have you tried the Microsoft Edge browser that comes with Windows 10?

I'm starting to wonder if WP is safe to continue running without anyone taking care of the back end.

I can't think of a reason that it isn't OK to keep using WinPatrol.

Happy to help my friend  :)

Then go into PowerPoint, File>Options>Advanced ... go to the Display section, and tick the box for Disable Slide Show hardware graphics acceleration and OK your way out.

THAT SIMPLE MOVE, FIXED THE PROBLEM AND SAVED A SCHOOL COMPUTER!

THANK YOU!!!


Glad it turned out to be something simple.  Lots of variables ... perhaps the computers had different versions of Windows 10, or PowerPoint, or the video configuration on a computer was incompatible with the Office feature set ... could be a lot of things.

Office 2013 and above rely on hardware acceleration, which is managed through the operating system, which relies on up-to-date and compatible display drivers.  It works fine, unless it doesn't  ;)

My guess is a video driver problem, either an old one or a setting within PowerPoint ...

First, I'd try looking to see if there is a newer video driver available from the computer manufacturer.

Then go into PowerPoint, File>Options>Advanced ... go to the Display section, and tick the box for Disable Slide Show hardware graphics acceleration and OK your way out.

That may solve the diagonal "mirror" image problem.

I'm not getting the notices  ???

I've been using the old Snipping Tool all day without problems loading  :o

I, for one, welcome new forum members.  Not all of us have time to go to all the other forums out there for security news.  For that matter, program updates are copy/pasted (Corrine smiles) everywhere.

Browser restart yes, Windows restart no (however if there are other Windows offerings such as cumulative updates at the same time, they generally require a restart)

Mary,

I have uBlock Origin installed on my Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Adblock Plus is also quite popular:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

I think you'll find a loyal following among users of either product.

Regarding your printer question ... do you have the menu bar visible in Firefox?  The Print option is a pull down from the File tab.  See attached.
