You're welcome, it's in the hardware ID's so you can track it down usually.

If you know the model of the computer it's usually pretty quick too.

5. Should CCleaner, reg scan ever be run and fixed for any errors......a hypothetical question?


Best regards!
I would not use the registry cleaner in ccleaner
I personally use TFC instead of ccleaner to remover temp files
TFC does have to be downloaded to the desktop and right clicked and select run as administrator
TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer Download - Geeks to Go Forum

Flash player/ Adobe shockwave element I don't use either most browser don't need it I'm happy using html5 in browsers at youtube.....

Instead of foxit I use
Free PDF Reader - Sumatra PDF

The rest it really depends on where you get these items
Not sure why you need team viewer
This site usually has clean installers but try not to download a lot of stuff you really don't need all they do is bloat a system and slow it down
If any ask to create a Startup folder uncheck that item.

Hi,

Thanks for suggesting the alternative software options.

TFC and Sumatra PDF.

You don't use Adobe flash cause of security concerns....or cause of the browser you use......I have to remain with Chrome since all my work is synced with it?


How do I install this https://ninite.com/?

How do I remove Panada AV tool bar, from Panda AV settings......is it advisable?

Best regards!

Hi,
You really done install ninite,
You just check the boxes for example 7zip and click on get installer
yea I don't install flash because browser already play youtube videos without it.
Security too one less thing to mess with

Hi,
You might review uninstall a program and see if they are listed
I actually forgot to tell you to uncheck the add-ons it offers

It's been a while but in Chrome I believe you can press the Alt key when Chrome is open
Then click the View and toolbars and uncheck panda's

No issues, thanks again.

Does G. Chrome needs flash player add on?

Shall keep you updated.

Best regards!



Edit:

Do you recommend installing required apps using Nite?

Hi,

I read in your system specs that you use Palemoon 64 bit, how do you rate it vs Chrome, FF and IE11, is it available for 32 bit systems, can Chrome bookmarks be synced and is it available for Android devices too?

Best regards!

Hi,
Pale moon is pretty good very much like Firefox you can't use the 64 bit version because you're on 32 bit but I also use 32 bit version too
I don't know anything about syncing anything I export and import bookmarks but that is about all

Installing anything from anywhere you need to get into the habit of looking before clicking Next when you install stuff from anywhere really

When you click Next fast you don't read what is being added to the download/ install of what you're really wanting
Panda free was a good example of that
A lot of places add stuff without showing what else is added to the install
Panda free does show up front Panda toolbar and I guess Yahoo toolbar too as being installed
But shows boxes to uncheck to Not install it = that was your chance to uncheck those items

I believe the only item I got from ninite was 7zip once a while back I got rid of it eventually because I didn't really use or need it anymore.
I wouldn't get all of the items you want from it go to the developers website for VLC.....
