    I joined LinkedIn, to be able to look at other profiles, rather than to put my own out there, as I am retired and not actively seeking work.

    If you're not careful in your profile, you'll get...

    I had a similar issue - couldn't find what the program was - where something started addressing me in German. I found that the cause was a Deutsche Bahn rail timetable, and this app thought that...

    I have noticed that I have not had as many of these calls lately. I tend to deal with these people quite aggressively, so it could be that the word is getting around.

    A large multinational publisher of magazines in the UK has systematically ignored my repeated requests to unsubscribe, and continues to send a monthly eMail.

    I use Mail Chimp to send out an HTML newsletter to ~570 people, but Mail Chimp sends singly to each of them, and I do not expose the eMail addresses of any of my members to any of the other 569...

    An alternative route would be Mail Chimp, free to non-profits, which is what you sound to be.

    I use it four to six times a year, to a mailing list of about 570. They give very good feedback,...

    I have removed this mysterious program, but now know how it came to be installed.

    It was part of an update to Family Tree Maker 2014 that I ran on the date in question. Now, when I start FTM,...

    Paul T



    I had a look at KeePass, but couldn't find where it allowed different browsers per URL. It seemed to require a whole heap of add-ons to fit with different browsers. Free is good.

    Try Classic Theme Restorer, available from Addons for Firefox, and use full screen, which leaves the home button in the top left corner. You might need Classic Toolbar Buttons as well.

    I just had a look at the options in RoboForm, and, while you can specify the default browser, whether it is IE, FF or something else, you can not set this per login.

    As the OP, I have found it interesting, though not particularly helpful, to wade through everyone's venting of their (mainly negative) opinions on this or that PDF reader program.

    December brought updates for Adobe Reader (and Acrobat). The update also brought a mystery run-once entry that took me some time to track down.
