    Gibson Research's "Spinrite"...

    Gibson Research's "Spinrite" <https://www.grc.com/sr/spinrite.htm> might be able to fix the bad sectors. It's not freeware but I found it worth every penny, both way back when it first came out and...

    Thanks for this info. I try not to use CNET, but I didn't know SourceForge had gone down that path. I'm sure that eventually folks won't even think twice about all the extra garbage because they...

    I thank you for this info. I have been putting off upgrading from WordPerfect 12, but this gives me the incentive to finally upgrade.

    I, too, appreciate the detailed instructions. My question is, for those of us who hibernate overnight or when not using the computer, why would we want to wake the computer to do this, if we have...

    I continue to use Eudora 7.1 because all the mailboxes are plain text. I never use the preview, and if an email looks "hinky" I move it to my "Questionable" mailbox, then open that mailbox in Notetab...

    I use 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 and Secunia, version 2.0, shows .Net Framework and IE as needing the same patches. But I checked, and those patches are already installed. I didn't see a link at the...

    Autoruns instead of Startup Control Panel

    Autoruns is part of the Sysinternals package. It's covers so much more than Startup Control Panel. SCP found 6 programs that run at startup. Autoruns found 16 programs and processes. With that said,...

    Another Eudora option to investigate

    A different Eudora update is MailForge at http://www.infinitydatasystems.com/products/mailforge/. I tried it in version 0.X and 1.0X. I didn't pursue it because at that time the import option didn't...

    I think Microsoft just decided that they flat-out don't care about handicapped users. The blind, those with amputations, the diabetics with poor--or no--sense of touch can't use a touch screen and...

    That works for Firefox but doesn't solve my overall problem. Even then, since I always save downloaded items to the same place, Firefox's "save as" box opens to that folder, so I don't really need...

    Thanks for that suggestion, but I don't use it because it doesn't give me an opportunity to change the name of what I'm saving. A software that's download name is, for example, 16xyxsetup.zip is...

    In XP, you could use an external program to change the default locations when you chose "Save As". Is there anything that will do that for Win 7? I've looked at the recommended tweaking programs and...

    I can't do that with Home Premium. The only programs it accepts are those that install to the Program Files folder, and Eudora installs to the (x86) folder. I've already discussed THAT blankety-blank...

    I've already tried "run as Administrator", from a regular user and as an Administrator, and that won't work. I think it's time to uninstall the 64-bit version and install the 32-bit one--at least...

    Where do I look for that? As I said, the installation for Eudora doesn't install the log file. Also, it's no a completely failed installation. The program works fine for general emailing. What it...

    I want to set NoteTab Light as the default .txt program, but Home Premium won't let me do that. Is there a way to force it to accept a program from the "Program Files (x86)" folder?
