Seems we've went a "little" off topic, but I'll continue.

I had Foxit Cloud too on the last update and if I recall it was listed separately in Programs and Features and I uninstalled it.

I'm not sure when Foxit Cloud was introduced (v6.0.0.xxxx?).

It was a separate (automatically) installed program.
Foxit said on their forum that you could simply uninstall it.

On my PC:
  • Uninstalling Foxit Cloud broke the updater
  • It seems that issue was fixed in v6.2.0.0429

W7's Market Share Increases Again

OS Market Share January 2014 - June 2014

According to data from Net Market Share, Windows XP actually gained market share last month, and Windows 8 as a whole lost some users.

Things don't seem to be going well for Microsoft -- at least not in the Windows operating system department. According to the latest data from Net Market Share, Windows 8 as a whole (merging Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 together) declined slightly, while Windows XP -- an OS that officially expired almost three months ago -- gained market share. What's going on here?

It is strange that XP would show any gain.

I don't think so.

If people had windows 7 professional (most businesses) they would also get xp mode. This might explain slightly the rise of xp.

Also from the article:

Quote:
This isn't a cause and effect or one-to-one relationship where Windows 8 users are abandoning the OS and reverting to Windows XP. I'm sure that's the case for some users, but the reality is that there are a few factors to consider.

First and foremost, Net Market Share is measuring OS market share based on the operating systems used to visit the various websites and internet resources it monitors. It's not based on sales, and Net Market Share has no way to determine how many people installed Windows XP or replaced Windows 8 with some other operating system in a given month.

All Net Market Share is reporting is, for the past month, an increase in Windows XP systems visiting the sites it monitors and a decline in Windows 8 systems. To put it another way, it's possible that there are far fewer PCs with Windows XP this month than last, and far more PCs with Windows 8 / 8.1 this month than last, but the numbers of each browsing the internet are not an accurate representation. That said, I respect the Net Market Share data, and I frequently use Net Market Share as a source for this sort of information, so it seems reasonable to accept the data at face value.

Taking a closer look at the data, the increase in Windows XP is only four hundredths of a percentage point -- from 25.27% in May to 25.31% in June. In other words, the "gain" makes for a nice, sensational headline, but it amounts essentially to a rounding error. It would be fair to say that Windows XP was stagnant, which in and of itself says something because an expired OS shouldn't just be declining -- it should be in free fall mode.

I still find it odd, XP mode is also now no longer supported as an OS.
Those figure are very volatile and change daily, that was a snapshot at the moment.

True but since its virtual, it does not matter as much as running it natively is a greater risk than virtually.

The risk is the same, it's just that using a virtualized XP it's easier to use various Undo Disk / Snapshot features to restore the system easy and fast when the slightest doubt exists.

The risk is the same in terms of the os can be infected, yes, but affecting the host is what I meant.

It is much safer to run questionable things in a vm vs the host even though there are a few threats out there that know when they are being ran virtualized.
