    Re: 4K Video Downloader?

    I've used it. No issues. No spyware/malware or otherwise.

    I think with the free version, you're limited to one download at a time but it works fine.

    Other free alternatives: youtube-dl (cmd...

    Re: New Firefox ver 57.0

    Not sure why you'd still be getting updates if you've disabled them. Maybe you have the maintenance service installed - if so, uninstall it.

    Re: Win 10 update modifies PC hardware?

    unlikely that an OS update caused hardware issues. More likely ports 4 & 5 are using a different chipset to the intel ones and weren't detected when Windows reinstalled, so didn't install the drivers...

    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: 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.

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