  1. Review - IObit Driver Booster (Mar 23, 2015)

    Good program if you ensure it doesn't install any 'extras'.

    Using the Fileforum download link provides btw (older in fact than what I already had), not the version listed.

  2. Review - FoxMail (Jul 4, 2014)

    Installation dialogs for this are in Chinese, so it's impossible to install. Might give it another shot if they ever get round to releasing an English version.

  3. Review - Opera for Windows (32-bit)

    19.0.1326.56 (Jan 29, 2014)

    A word of warning if you're currently a heavy user of any other browser and are considering moving to this. Opera currently has NO facility for importing / migrating your existing Bookmarks or Favourites. I know, I really couldn't believe that myself either. There's also no sign of a Bookmarks manager within it, certainly none that I could find. There is a little menu item that says it's for importing bookmarks, but unless you're an existing Opera user you'll notice that it's greyed out since its sole purpose is for importing bookmarks from an old Opera version.

    So unless you fancy manually inputting all your bookmarks, steer clear ....

  4. Review - Skype for Windows (Jan 22, 2014)

    Why does this thing always seem so incredibly heavy on the system ? It's only meant to be a simple messaging system for crying out loud !

    I maintain home computers, and it's always painfully obvious when this is installed on one. There will always be that additional 15 second delay before the 'gloop' sound comes out of the thing - and until that point, the machine will be completely unresponsive to any attempts to start anything.

  5. Review - Avira Free Antivirus (Sep 4, 2013)

    A decent Antivirus, but as usual this isn't the version it's claimed to be. I don't know who keeps uploading it to fileforum, but it's NEVER the version they claim it to be. I don't know whether they're deliberately posting incorrect version numbers, or simply don't have a clue what they're doing. This is claimed to be build 4052, but it's actually 3885.

  6. Comment - Apple lied to get that injunction against Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? (Aug 15, 2011 - 8:01 PM)

    Not sure whether you're actually apologising, or think your original post was meant to be funny. To be clear - the original post was revolting, and contained items (insulting a persons mother etc) which are just plain WRONG. Again, I'm not sure if the 'split personality' reference is meant to be a joke, but it is quite clear there's something wrong with you.

  7. Comment - Apple lied to get that injunction against Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? (Aug 15, 2011 - 7:16 PM)

    This post is absolutely disgusting and a complete disgrace .....

  8. Comment - UK finally makes ripping your own DVDs and CDs legal (Aug 4, 2011 - 7:47 PM)

    Now that's odd. I can't think of one person I know who's ever abided by this law anyway. So now we're supposed to celebrate? Hmm ...

    On another note, I read that on the other hand, this new decision means music prices will go up here in the UK. Apparently everyone's in agreement that it IS obviously wrong to make a copy of that CD for our own use. So it's 'only fair' to charge a small subsidy to offset the fact they're now going to allow us to do it. So no, they aren't bowing to common sense after all - still bowing to the music bosses.

  9. Comment - My mother is getting a Chromebook (Jul 30, 2011 - 7:06 PM)

    You're obviously talking about gmail webmail there. The is the server for accessing mail using IMAP, which is what he said in his article.

  10. Comment - Want Thunderbird 5 to be more like Outlook? Try Lightning (Jul 30, 2011 - 6:54 PM)

    Thanks for the heads up about this - quite a nice bit of software that I've already tried previous versions of.

    I'd already read about this update on the downloadcrew site. Note though, that the link there for the Windows version actually downloads the Mac version.
