Revo Uninstaller

Revo Uninstaller
Pros I have been meaning to install Revo for ages to clean out some junk on my PC but never got around to it. Well today I really needed it after I couldn't get rid of a program with just my PCs' uninstall application, and it worked just they way I thought it would. Cons It doesn't seem that it can be used to get rid of browsers like the Homepage-Web browser hijacker that sneaked its way on to my PC. Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful? Reply by kstenbch on July 20, 2015 You may have malware, and Revo uninstaller is an uninstaller, not a cleaner. Easy to use Tons of features and controls Straightforward user interface Free version is just fine Works for most problems Won't uninstall badly corrupted programs Summary I got this for the sole purpose of removing a badly corrupted factory image of Microsoft Office 2010. Reply to this review it cost nothing (but wasted time) without total destruction. Was this review helpful? Easy to use, thorough as expected, nice interface. Related:  MICROSOFT - Office Programs

HitmanPro 3 (64-bit) Pros Free for the first 30 days and extremely cheap for the outcome that it provides. removes malware and viruses that are not easily detected by its competition Cons cant think of one Summary worth it! Reply to this review Was this review helpful? Catches and deletes all of the tougher viruses that all the other scanners were not able to get rid of. I'm sure there are cons out there, but I didn't use it at length to find any, it deleted the PITA spyware, so what more can you ask for! I only use this to ensure I get rid of everything. Found double click and a lot more. It may pick up genuine programs but leaves you to decide if it to delete or not. I like it and it will stay on my computer and works along Spybot and McAfee. Haven't got it working. See's Dropbox.exe as a Virus! Pros ?!! It took a couple of minutes to do a fall system scan and I have no idea what is scanned for in such a short time. It's a dangerous program to have. Was this review helpful? Absolutely like no other anti-virus.

WinPatrol Program Database What You Need to Know About Windows Update on Windows 10 Windows Update has seen a lot of changes on Windows 10. The biggest is a more aggressive approach to getting everyone up-to-date, but Windows 10 will also use BitTorrent-style peer-to-peer downloads for updates. Many of the included applications on Windows 10 — the Microsoft Edge browser and all those other “universal apps” — will be automatically updated through the Windows Store, which is separate from Windows Update. The Control Panel Interface is Gone Windows 8 offered dual interfaces for Windows Update — one in the PC Settings app, and one in the older Control Panel. Windows 10 retains most of the old Control Panel, but the Windows Update interface has been removed. Instead, you’ll find Windows Update in the new Settings app under Update & security. Updates Install Automatically, and You Can’t Choose Which Visit the Windows Update interface and you’ll just find a single button — “Check for updates.” Windows Won’t Download Updates on Metered Connections You Can Choose When to Reboot

How to reserve your free copy of Windows 10 Apple finally started singing a new tune. The maker of iPhones and iPad tablets on Monday unveiled its first streaming service, dubbed Apple Music, as its revamped way of presenting songs on its devices. Apple's $10 a month service is built off the music subscription service that it acquired a year ago from Beats for $3 billion. Apple will also offer a plan for families of up to six people to share a subscription for $15 a month. When it launches June 30 in over 100 countries, Apple Music will be available with a three-month free trial. Some elements will be free without a subscription, such as a viewing artists' content and listening to radio with some limitations. In addition to running on Apple devices -- including the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac computers and Apple TV -- Apple Music service will also be available for devices that use Android, the mobile operation system from rival tech giant Google. Apple said the service would "bring together all the ways people love music."
