  1. - It means that the HD could be in the 1st stages of failing. Run the progrma again, open the "Health" tab. Does any of the lines show up in a pink or red color ? Post a screenshot then we can see what's wrong with the "health" of the HD.
  2. - Microsoft is not "too happy" with the NSA's action/neglect regarding this vulnerability in the Windows OS. https://mishtalk.com/2017/05/14/microsoft-blasts-nsa-cia-for-stockpiling-vulnerabilities-criminal-negligence-by-nsa/ https://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/2017/05/14/need-urgent-collective-action-keep-people-safe-online-lessons-last-weeks-cyberattack/#sm.00001qetxt6r5scz1teqfe8tvxalo - Didn't MS know that there are large organisations (like the NHS) that are still using the XP OS ?
  3. - "Bleeping Computer" also had this article on how to disable the ransom-ware: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/wana-decrypt0r-ransomware-outbreak-temporarily-stopped-by-accidental-hero-/
  4. - But Vista was already covered in the March 2017 patch up update. Because support for Vista was dropped after april of 2017. - Win 8 (NOT Win 8.1 !!!) wasn't covered as well. My info came from this article: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/microsoft-releases-patch-for-older-windows-versions-to-protect-against-wana-decrypt0r/
  5. - Well, and the NHS is "swimming in the money", right ?? Seems they don't have the money to switch to a newer OS. - Yes, I have updated my Win 7 system with that March update and I don't open suspect emails. So, I should be fine.

    - Is that the Peak District National Park ?
  7. AT&T and Verizon want to earn extra money by selling user's browsing history. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/03/30/how-will-isps-collect-and-sell-your-browser-history.html
  8. - I could imagine that Defraggler has "a conflict" with some other program. But the question is: which program ?
  9. - Found another small bug in DF. The user is able to click on a place on the drivemap. If there're files placed in that particular spot then DF will list those files that are located there. But then the file list fails to give an indication on how the list is sorted. There's no Arrow head displayed in one of the headers of the file list. In this one particular case the program code forgets to make the arrowhead show up. See also the picture in the weblink: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRnD2AT08SavZGV9 Only when I sort that list (for the 1st time) an Arrow head will show up. Every time after that I sort the file list then that Arrow head keeps showing up (as it should).
  10. - Install PcWinTech's CLEANMEM. It reduces every 10 minutes memory usage.
  11. - Did you do a "Full Defrag" ? - I personally only defrag the fragmented files and only rarely do a full defrag. Precisely because a full defrag does take so much time.
  12. - Came across another odd thing. Sometimes the DF drivemap fails to correctly show which spots on a drive are and aren't occupied by files. See the picture (weblink) for an example. - The DF drivemap thinks that the yellow blocks contain files but when I click on of the yellow blocks, DF reports "No files found". - DF also makes another error. When I click on the black blocks then DF reports that one or more files are stored in that particular block. But the DF drivemap tells another story, the drive map says that these blocks don't contain any files at all. These blocks then show up in white. (In the picture I only changed the color of a few blocks - eleven in total - in the picture to black & yellow). https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRiMsAXoXiBgHl31
  13. - Based on my limited (!!!!) knowledge, I could make a case that the WMI database is corrupted and needs to be rebuild. There're programs that can do that (e.g. Tweaking's Windows Repair, repair #5 in that program can do that job).
  14. - Took a look at all my reported bugs and I think that the issue mentioned in post #39 is the worst bug in the program code and I think it has therefore the highest priority on the list of bugs. (Yes, I keep nagging)
  15. - @Razz: Is your computer behind a (WiFi) router ? If so, then already a lot of viruses & other malware are eliminated (by the router). Don't know the details on how it works but it works.
  16. - The behaviour of moving files to the end of the drive, as described in post #39 in this thread, also happens when I use a different method of moving files towards the end of the drive. I.e. when I use the "Defrag" options. (See picture in the weblink). https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRe-gJTpLIeZ6iq1
  17. - I regularly use a program called "Clonespy" which is made in Germany. This program also recognizes - like DF - that the dutch name of the folder "C:\Users" should be displayed as "Gebruikers". But Clonespy doesn't have the sorting problem as described above. When the program displays a list with sorted folder names, it correctly places the folder "Gebruikers" between "GameHouse Games" and "Geluidsfragmenten". See this screenshot: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRZk92SzDknykOKd Clonespy: http://www.clonespy.com/
  18. - (Australian) Politicians are a danger for the human population ??? LOL.
  19. Found two language related (non fatal) issues/bugs in the last version of DF. - Found a translation error: DF is able to search a drive only for filenames or parts of file names (incl. extensions). But the dutch translation states that DF also can search for (parts of) folder names. - Another language related thing that can be improved in a future version. When I want to select the folder "C:\Users" on my dutch Win 7 system (See my signature) then DF does always pull up and displays the right dutch name for that system folder ("Gebruikers"). But here's where DF gets "off the rails". To allow the user select one or more folders, the names of the folders needs to be sorted alphabetically. Then DF doesn't take into account that that folder is called "Gebruikers" on my dutch system. Then DF assumes that that folder is called "C:\Users" and not "c:\Gebruikers". And then the list with folder names is displayed accordingly. As a result the folder "Gebruikers" ends up (in the sorted list) between "C:\Uitzoeken" and "C:\Videos". See this screenshot: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRXEXtjWw0XlNuxf I assume that this sorting problem is not limited to dutch. I assume that users who use other languages have the same problem.
  20. - It also depends on what kind of defragging you want to be executed. If you only defragment the fragmented files then it's much faster than when you defrag the entire drive.
  21. - It seems that a number of translators were a bit lazy. Because when I change the language to japanese the text does get translated !!! (running Ccleaner PRO v5.28)
  22. - When I look at the "Optional" updates then it suggests that people with a Win 7 system will only have 1 update in the next "Windows Update tuesday" and that update is offered twice. Odd, very odd.

    - Another creation of M.C. Escher. https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRJlW73V2L6GYohC (I use the build-in Windows Screensaver to refresh my desktop picture every day. But the software isn't flawless. Sometimes I see the same picture for more than one or two days.)
  24. - I use Defraggler to defrag & move files from selected folders to the beginning of the drive. Files from the following folders: - C:\Program files. - C:\Program files (x86) - C:\users - C:\ProgramData - C:\Windows - I regularly move files in all other folders to the end of the drive.
  25. - So, it's not the bear itself that has leaked that info/data but the computer database that was connected to the IoT bear that was "poorly" secured. - IoT fridges, IoT toy bears, ............... . More good reasons to stay away/avoid IoT connected devices. Or - at least - turn off the IoT functionality. Is it possible to switch off those IoT features ?
