    I check "Disable everywhere and it makes no difference: still getting the subscribe ad on every forum page. Any other suggestions?

    Thank you for your quick reply. I already have "Adblock Plus" installed. I don't know about any "additonal helpers". All the options are checked except 'Disable everywhere'. I will try checking that...
  3. Why do I get a subscription ads after clicking to read forum posts from paid Windows Secrets?

    I have a life-time subscription to Windows Secrets newsletter. I open the newsletter in my email client and then click the link to read the newsletter in Firefox. I read a lot of the forum posts...

    Sorry; this doesn't change anything. There was already a check beside the AiOS toolbar.

    But it was a good idea. I'd completely forgotten to check that.
  5. Customised Firefox doesn't show the sidebar with direct links: no sidebar or completely open

    My Firefox is up to date, but it's been updated so many times I can't count. At some point I accidentally turned off the thin column/sidebar that shows icons for bookmarks, history, downloads, add...

    I'm a long time fan of COMODO Programs Manager. It doesn't add anything extra, as far as I can tell, and when it finishes with a program's built in uninstaller, it shows you every single registry...

    I didn't know satellite was slower than good DSL; thanks for letting me know. Dish certainly doesn't want you to know that! As for how far I am from a switching station, the phone company won't say....

    Actually, I'm retired and I don't go somewhere else on a daily basis. I think that leaves out that option. But thanks for suggesting that.
  11. Offsite backups without high-speed Internet possible?

    My "high speed" DSL line is 700-something KBS and has been that way since they first offered DSL and that was considered high speed. In reality it's a lot, lot slower. I've got off-site unlimited...

    Thank you. I found one site that was text only and nothing but the info so I figured it was least likely to infect my machine. I plugged in the info and poof! ad window all gone.

    I suggest backing up (i.e., copying) the Eudora 5.2 folder first to someplace like the desktop. Then install 7.1X in a new folder, copy over all the files that have a date newer than the install date...

    I tried Foxit but found it lacking in some features, like pulling text out of a pdf file without a lot of alterations. I currently use Nitro Reader 3 which does a better job.

    Thank you for that tip. I got away from Acrobat Reader because it was very bloated and filled with features I had no use for. What about Acrobat Pro 8? My HP EliteBook 2530p laptop has limited hard...
