Thanks for contacting us about this matter.
Yes, it is true that the "TrustedInstaller" account is enough grand full permission. But on some computers, we have seen that the  "TrustedInstaller" is not listed on the list that's why we have given "everyone" option there. But we'll correct it and give another solution for the  "TrustedInstaller" account not seen.

Thanks for informed us about this.

I wrote them and half quoted you:

I am writing you because of an error in https://www.techsupp...-service-is-missing/ under >Method 2,  Step 1< where you tell the reader to >>Click on Permission Tab. > Click on Change Permission. > Click on Add Button > Type Everyone, then click on OK, and then check mark all the boxes of allow row,<<. This is very very wrong! It is not needed and certainly not wanted, for everyone to have permission to Write! Default permissions for spoolsv.exe only grant Read and Read+Execute permissions to the System account. Only the TrustedInstaller account should be allowed to have full control, not everyone! Solution: Uncheck >Write<

Time will tell their response.

read our thread Long Path Fixer http://www.donationc...ndex.php?topic=42049

About the same time as the latest update from Microsoft was installed, I also installed Nitro 12 Pdf editor. So when I realized that I no longer was able to print to pdf, I could not be sure if the error was made by Microsoft or by Nitro. When searching for a solution, I stumbled upon the old freeware from Print Spooler Repair Tool. I say old, because the text is only saying >for WindowsXP , Vista, windows 7, windows 8.<, but fact is it has been updated for Win 10 as well.

It is also saying >Please run this tool in Safemode mode<, but I ran it as it was, and everything went well.

The page is very informative and includes a lot of relevant tips (Method2 > Manual Steps)

General Software Discussion / A sign of life from WinMerge
« on: May 28, 2018, 06:38 PM »
WinMerge 2.15.2 is a so-called alpha version, so last stable version is still listed to be version 2.14 from year 2013.

I am running version 2.15.2 ("alpha"), and it's just fine. No problems. However, the installation didn't overwrite the old version, so I am guessing version 2.14 was a 32-bit version (was working fine on my 64-bits), because I then uninstalled the 2.14 and still kept all of my new 2.15.2


>>>WinMerge is a Windows tool for visual difference display and merging, for both files and directories. It is highly useful for determining what has changed between file versions, and then merging those changes.
WinMerge has Unicode support, Flexible syntax coloring editor, Visual SourceSafe integration, and Windows Shell integration.
Regexp filtering for filenames and lines. Side-by-side line difference and highlights differences inside lines.
A file map shows the overall file differences in a location pane. The user interface is translated into several languages.<<<

Here are some notes about release and a plan for the stable version 2.16.0:

download from https://sourceforge....-life-from-winmerge/
freeware, clean

most recent version (2.15.4 at the moment) is at https://bitbucket.or.../winmerge/downloads/


the quite new version 14 for free or with discounted upgrades

see photo:

Blackbird updated to BETA version 1.0 a couple of hours ago. (not ready just yet)

^ and it is not what Coeluh back then was asking for.

The Big Picture (https://www.afterdaw.../the_big_picture.cfm) is.

The default version is adware, but their .msi version is clean and is working fine on my Win 10 desktop.

The download is bundled with sponsored offers to cover some of the costs of maintaining our download servers. If you prefer a non-installer version, please click here ("there") to download the software without the installer.

it would be nice to have something still supported.

^ it would probably appear more "supported" if the thumbnails on the homepage, were more than just thumbnails, and if anything on the homepaqe was younger than a year.

-sorry, the thumbnails are working in Edge. It was my old Firefox that was the problem.

I did however expect the number to take off at some point in time.
Unfortunately, it doesn't.

Can you tell this track's title and artist, please?


Oh no — pwned!
Pwned on 5 breached sites and found no pastes (subscribe to search sensitive breaches)

A "breach" is an incident where data has been unintentionally exposed to the public.
Breaches you were pwned in

Adobe: In October 2013, 153 million Adobe accounts were breached with each containing an internal ID, username, email, encrypted password and a password hint in plain text. The password cryptography was poorly done and many were quickly resolved back to plain text. The unencrypted hints also disclosed much about the passwords adding further to the risk that hundreds of millions of Adobe customers already faced.

Compromised data: Email addresses, Password hints, Passwords, Usernames

Dropbox: In mid-2012, Dropbox suffered a data breach which exposed the stored credentials of tens of millions of their customers. In August 2016, they forced password resets for customers they believed may be at risk. A large volume of data totalling over 68 million records was subsequently traded online and included email addresses and salted hashes of passwords (half of them SHA1, half of them bcrypt).

Compromised data: Email addresses, Passwords

Exploit.In (unverified): In late 2016, a huge list of email address and password pairs appeared in a "combo list" referred to as "Exploit.In". The list contained 593 million unique email addresses, many with multiple different passwords hacked from various online systems. The list was broadly circulated and used for "credential stuffing", that is attackers employ it in an attempt to identify other online systems where the account owner had reused their password. For detailed background on this incident, read Password reuse, credential stuffing and another billion records in Have I been pwned.

Compromised data: Email addresses, Passwords

MajorGeeks: In November 2015, almost 270k accounts from the MajorGeeks support forum were breached. The accounts were being actively sold and traded online and included email addresses, salted password hashes and IP addresses.

Compromised data: Email addresses, IP addresses, Passwords, Usernames

Malwarebytes: In November 2014, the Malwarebytes forum was hacked and 111k member records were exposed. The IP.Board forum included email and IP addresses, birth dates and passwords stored as salted hashes using a weak implementation enabling many to be rapidly cracked.

Compromised data: Dates of birth, Email addresses, IP addresses, Passwords, Usernames, Website activity

Here is a Paschal Candle:

I know about candles  and I know about Easter  and I know that Christ is Alpha and Omega because of Easter,  but I have never before seen  or even read  or heard about  Easter Candles! Yep, we really are Lutherans up here (Denmark / Scandinavia).

These candles are really nice to look at, BGM. Thank you for showing them! :up:

Living Room / Re: Need help translating old German documents
« on: March 16, 2018, 09:11 AM »
are these private letters with secret informations, or why haven't you uploaded a page, so we can have a go?
I read German, as all Danes of my generation do, but old scripts and spelling (etc) are not easy at all - weather German or Danish...

I wonder when v4 is due since their original estimation was 2017, 3rd quarter ... ie. 6 months ago.

It could be that also Revo has lost too many paying customers in the world wide change from shareware for PC to adware for mobile, so they maybe can't afford to have a lot of software authors work for almost no $$ customers. Revo Uninstaller Mobile is still at version 1, and seems to be free = no income. But yes, version 3 has been here for 5 years by now, so version 4 could be imminent. I have however not been able to find any mentioning of launching a new version for PC?
