    Beware: Avast and AVG are officially snoopware!

    It is good, but it disables many cool functions that new versions of windows 10 has built in. If you know what they arr, you can of course find open source alternatives for each of those. I use it on all my windows systems, but then, I tweak the settings to suit my needs. For my surface PCs...

    Windows 7 End of Support - KDE Plasma - W7 Replacement.

    But that's not how things work. If it isn't smooth, it simply gets rejected, and if a thing has to survive, it has to mould itself to be wanted, not sit at a moral high ground. I wish people were more sensible and open to learning, but we aren't. In one way or the other we aren't. Like letting...

    Windows 7 End of Support - KDE Plasma - W7 Replacement.

    These sort of problems take some how years to resolve. Which is why I find the mainstream OSes to be better. After so many years, libre office can sometimes still be bloody painful to install. Throwing up the random 2503 error that has been documented since 2009 or even before! As hard as I...

    HP pavilion laptop slips into repair mode

    Linux will do nothing if the hdd is damaged. You could still give a try. There are some really good data recovery utils. Try testdisk and ddrescue to see if you can do something about the data. There's also the supremely famous Gparted and close behind is Mondorescue. I just dabble in linux...

    HP pavilion laptop slips into repair mode

    NB: You will need an 8gb drive at least. The iso will be around 2GB. Try booting with Linux mint. It is a lot faster and a lot lighter than ubuntu. Simply download the ISO file, and load it into a usb drive using rufus or balena etcher...

    Beware: Avast and AVG are officially snoopware!

    If you are on Windows, I would say Windows Defender. I have been using this on all my windows systems (more than 15) and it does as good a job as any. If you absolutely want an alternative, you might be slightly better of Kaspersky. I am not too sure though.

    Beware: Avast and AVG are officially snoopware!

    A joint report published by Vice and PC Magazine showed that Avast collects and repackages user data collected from installs of Avast Free AV and AVG AV and sells it to some of the world's biggest companies. Once again proving that if the product is free, you are the product! The following...
