    Re: GrabaSeat emails

    Just looks like broken image links. If you're running an ad-blocker or similar tool, it could be blocking them.

    This.

    The only way to stop Windows Updates happening is to disable the Windows Update service. Set it to Automatic or Manual when you do actually want to do some updates and disable it again after...

    Re: Ashampoo® Anti-Virus

    Agreed, it used to be impossible to access via the bitdefender site. Though I haven't look in a while, it was also impossible to get an offline installer - they only offered a stub installer :yuck:

    Re: Windows 10 - Start Up Menu and Groups

    There possibly is, but why not pin your frequent apps to the taskbar or create desktop shortcuts? Surely, its effectively the same thing?

    Re: Flashgot for Firefox

    No, Flashgot or DTA won't grab YT clips. There are many tools around that will - 4k videodownloader (free), jDownloader (free - more of a download manager), IDM (not free, download manager)

    Re: Someones making a killing in good ol NZ

    The only thing I'd be wary of is fake cards. If its not for anything important, then go for gold :D

    I bought a bunch of compact flash cards a few years back from B&H. I could get them landed here...

    Re: Colours on Irfanview

    I assume you've got the "Color Management" options enabled in IrfanView?

    Options -> Properties/Settings -> Zoom / Color Management.

    Re: Youtube Download

    One free option is jDownloader - it will grab a playlist no problem ... I don't think the 4k video one changes the quality at all unless you set it to encode the clips in some other format.

    Re: Stop annoying adverts in Avira anti virus

    As long as you have Avira/Avast/whatever with additional scanners like Malwarebytes/Adcleaner/etc you should be relatively safe.

    Also good to have a decent ad blocker + various plugins for your...

    Re: Winzip alternatives ?

    +1 for both WinRAR & PeaZip.

    WinZip has been super bloated for years and they keep throwing more stuff into it.

    I might turn updates back on to get the creators build (after its been beta tested by the masses) and then disable them again :)

    These days it doesn't matter too much which drives are plugged in to which connectors because you can rearrange them either in the BIOS or in Windows.

    Re: Stop annoying adverts in Avira anti virus

    I can't say i've ever seen an ad while running Avast - other than the one you get around license renewal time.
    Maybe my adblocker nukes them or maybe I don't get any because I'm not running many of...

    another +1 for a Dell Ultrasharp. You just need to be careful which one you get. Some are not wide-gamut even though they are IPS monitors.

    Re: Win10 new privacy dashboard

    The dashboard is no good if you're not using a Microsoft account (which I'm not). Much better to use one of the many tools out there to disable the various "spying" apps/services.

    If you're card reader is actually USB2, then the cards are to blame. I can copy a full 16GB SDHC card to my PC in about 15-20mins.

    There are many (confusing) speed standards for cards and...
