Q: What does Vivaldi browser install options means?

I was looking for portable Vivaldi but guess there is no official portable version of Vivaldi.

Vivaldi install options are ---
Per user - For current user on the system.
All users - For all users on the system.
Standalone install - Is this portable install...& completely portable install?

Preferred Solution: What does Vivaldi browser install options means?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I think Standalone means, Offline installer?

Standalone software may refer to:
Computer software that can work offline, i.e. does not necessarily require network connection to function
Software that is not a part of some bundled software
A program that is run as a separate computer process, not an add-on of an existing process
Standalone program, a program that does not require operating system's services to run
A portable application, which can be run without the need for installation procedure
Stand-alone expansion pack, expansion packs that do not require the original game

Almost two years ago, the Norwegian browser firm Opera ripped out the guts of its product and adopted the more standard WebKit and Chromium technologies, essentially making it more like rivals Chrome and Safari. But it wasn?t just Opera?s innards that changed; the browser also became more streamlined and perhaps less? geeky.

Many Opera fans were deeply displeased at the loss of what they saw as key differentiating functionality. So now Jon von Tetzchner, the man who founded Opera and who would probably never have allowed those drastic feature changes, is back to serve this hard core with a new browser called Vivaldi.

Old meets new
Vivaldi doesn?t mark a return to Opera?s old internals ? it uses Chromium as a base and has a user interface that is itself unusually built using web technologies ? but it does bring back features such as tab stacking, an advanced bookmark manager, keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to start with multiple session windows.

Opera used to be ?more feature-rich, for a crowd of users that want more from their browser,? von Tetzchner told me:

After I quit [as CEO in 2010, then fully in 2011], Opera changed their philosophy. They made kind of a browser that?s more in line with most of the other browsers and doesn?t have a lot of features. The focus is in a way on making the browser disappear, and I think there?s a lot of people that want something different.

Hi folks anyone else trying the new Vivaldi browser?
 
No extensions yet but I will enquire, it has the familiar Opera style speed dial and I like the way cookies can be deleted, it also lists them separately for you and from here 11 cookies are listed from this site for example, I can delete all or pick which site individually.
 
Web Of Trust, HTTPS-everywhere would be nice along with a few others, what extensions do you use and why, regardless of which browser you currently favour?
 
Obviously not wanting to go off topic but there may be some I haven't used and would maybe when I send feedback suggest them also.
 
I'd sum up after a quick mess with it that it's a bit Spartan at the moment and Firefox is still my preferred browser for speed, stability, looks, extensions available and general ease of use. 
 
Thanks, Ian.

I read an article that IPV4 addresses are running out and that some crisis is about to present itself concerning IPV4 addresses. Frankly, I have little-to-no understanding of what this means. I have only uninformed guesses what it means to run out of IPV4 addresses.

Here's the article: http://www.infoworld.com/print/121729

I don't need to know about the black market aspect of it. I guess I just need to know what IPV4 is and IPV6 is and how running out of those addresses matters to me.
 

A:Someone explain what this means 'running out of IPV4' means

IPV4 is the present standard used to assign addresses to computers
and servers on the internet.
Each computer has an IP address.
It's like a phone number for each computer.
When you view a web page,it connects to that servers IP.
The domain name is assigned to that IP address.
Running out of IPV4 addresses shouldn't be a major problem
as IPV6 is already in place to extend the number of available addresses.
The modem you use to connect to the internet more than likely
is assigned an IPV4 IP address by your internet provider.

I wanted to try out the new Vivaldi browser, so I downloaded and installed the latest v. 1.0.435.46. It's supposedly running, and Task Manager tells me it's using about 67 MB of RAM, but it doesn't appear in any windows. Tried a reinstall too. Would this be an XP problem? I can't run Chrome and sometimes Opera won't run in XP.Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:XP + Vivaldi

Since XP is no longer a supported. You will find this is a recurring theme of finding secondary browsers of the latest release working in XP. Since you already find that Chrome does not work with XP. Vivaldi is a Chromium based browser, it will not work in XP either unfortunately.You can see this discussed here: https://vivaldi.net/fr/forum/vivaldi-browser/8560-vivaldi-on-windows-xp-and-vista

Hi

This morning I installed the latest version of Vivaldi, went to Channel 4's catch up page, All4 to watch a TV programme and got a message saying I needed to switch off my ad blocker (this would have been done permanently on All4 but I had to reinstall Vivaldi from scratch at the weekend and delete all of my settings as my PC to had a bit of a meltdown!) so I switched off Ad Block Plus on that page, then switched off Vivaldi's built-in ad blocker, refreshed and tried again - it still said I needed to switch off my ad blocker.

I therefore disabled ABP on the extensions page and added U Block Origin instead. Switched UBO off on All4, pressed 'play' and got the same message. I then disabled UBO on the extensions page so I had no ad blockers running at all, refreshed All4 & clicked play....it still said I had an ad blocker running!

Any ideas as to what to do next, please? It's obviously not ABP or UBO that's the problem if it's still saying it when neither is working and there doesn't appear to be any other setting I can change in Vivaldi so I'm at a loss! I'll probably end up just watching All4 on my horrendously slow tablet in future if I can't get it to work!

Thank you,

Vivaldi 1.0 Benchmark Tests from the web

Vivaldi 1.0 is now dominating the news these days.People are praising and writing reviews on this new browser, so I've decided to post 3 Benchmark tests found along the way.
​1. Ghacks :
Code:

http://www.ghacks.net/2016/04/06/vivaldi-web-browser-review/



Hardware: not specified
2. Computerbild.de :
Code:
http://www.computerbild.de/artikel/cb-Tests-Software-Vivaldi-Browser-Download-Screenshots-14012791.html



The benchmark SunSpider , V8 and Octane check the speed in the preparation of JavaScript.
The Acid3 test analyzes the conformity to current web standards.
Peacekeeper (Pk) focuses on HTML5 elements.
In SunSpider, a low value (in seconds) is better. In V8, Octane, Peacekeeper and Acid3, a high value (in points / runs) is better.

Hardware : The test PC COMPUTER BILD: a notebook with an Intel Pentium T2390 (dual core at 1.86 GHz), 3 gigabytes of RAM and Windows 10 (32 bit).
3. Chip.de :
Code:
http://www.chip.de/artikel/Vivaldi-Browser-Test_76313444.html



Does not do well in comparison to the others in the JetStream test.

Hardware: not specified.

Vivaldi seems to be doing better in most of the benchmark tests provided along with the reviews. Of course, individual hardware matters.Users are also welcome to try on their own and post the results.You can also post any other benchmark tests you come across(with the source).

Running latest Windows 10 and Vivaldi (a Chrome-based browser) versions. Beginning a least a month or two ago I lost the ability to type into Evernote Web Clipper fields. I've since learned that this also happens with third party sites in frames. I can, however, paste into the fields! Surprisingly, I find that sometimes (but usually not) after I paste into an Evernote Web Clipper field, I can then type into that or other fields in the form!?!

I have tried rebooting, deleting Cache and reinstalling Vivaldi. No joy.

I am using Google Chrome on a PC as my go to browser. Are there better options out there and if so, can you give your opinions as to why?
 

A:Browser options

Absolutely better, no. Better for you, possibly. It really just depends on what you're after.

In general if you want a browser that you can customize as you like and kit out with an array of extensions, go for Firefox.
Chrome is probably best for getting out of your way and letting you interact with the website. It's also meant to be exceptionally fast (I think that's mostly in terms of how quickly it executes Javascript)
If you have any particular requirements, you'll want particular browsers. There are browsers that work only with text, browsers that speak out the pages audiably, browsers hardened for security, and generally options to fit most people's needs. If there were a best browser, there would only be one.

My websearch is a form of spyware that is rather harmless however very annoying.

I recommend downloading Spybot , installing it, updating it, then running a full scan and removing what it finds.

Spybot is a very good free anti-spyware program. It should remove those toolbars.

Just bought a Samsung 256Gb ssd to replace my 1TB boot drive and looking at options. (I do have Acronis 2011 suite and the new Samsung magician transfer software)
Preferred option is to use a 2011 Windows 7 ultimate image of the 1TB, but it's single partition is larger than the SSD and it was set as IDE in bios/registry...when imaged.
Reading thru the forum and web comments it looks like one could restore the image to a Hdd (do I need a 1TB drive for that?), then change that to AHCI via registry and Bios, then transfer using Acronis or possibly the Samsung Magician software to the SSD, but people imply the W7 image of a large partition cannot be imaged on a smaller drive.

Fresh install would be very time consuming due to some program settings. The current install of Win 7 could be used but it has become somewhat bloated. Motherboard is Sata 2.

Is there any direct or more simple way to use this older Win 7 image to the SSD? Are there any smarter options for migration?

You don't want the all of the information from the HDD on your SSD. Leave the Text Docs, Pictures, etc on the HDD. Put your Windows and all programs on the SSD. Your image is from 2011. I am sure a lot has changed on the HDD since then. You can install Windows in about 45 minutes. Then put your programs on the SSD. You don't have to do it all in one day. It won't take that long. Do yourself a favor and do it right.

Hey folks!
Thank you for your time on this -

When Windows 7 was released, I upgraded through student pricing, and got Home Premium.

I bought a mac and I need to install Windows 7 on it - I'm just wondering how I can find out if I have a 1 user license? I read somewhere that sometimes it's a 3 user license, but I don't think so since I bought a student license.

I'd also like to know if I upgrade to Professional, if I can have multiple user licenses for that as well?

A:Upgrade options - Mac Install

I'm pretty sure that the student pricing is only one license. The only way you get a 3-user license is through a special family pack option, which wouldn't be available with student pricing.

If you upgrade to Professional, you will still have a 1-user license. Even if you had the family pack option, I don't believe one Pro upgrade license could upgrade the entire pack.

Hi,

Are there options during the installation of win 8 to keep all user files when I am running win 7 and the win 8 cd is a full installation cd,that is it does not say it is an "upgrade version".
Isnt win8 an upgrade ? so any win 8 installation is an upgrade???
Thanks in Advance

A:win 8 installation CD Options during install

Windows 8 is "both" an upgrade and new install. I depends on the version you bought. Every version of Windows ever released has been an upgrade.

If you bought the upgrade, and have a supported OS already installed on your PC, there will be an option to retain your data and programs.

If you bought the full version that option may "not" be available.

Regardless of the version you bought, making a backup of all your files and emails (if you use third party email clients or outlook) is the responsible thing to do when making a radical change to ones precious computer.

And possibly needing to reinstall all your programs is a reality we all must face.

But I'm sure you still have all of your respective media to reinstall your programs if necessary.

You should never gamble with your data!

Hi, I just made an account here because I rather desperately need help, as I think I did something incredibly stupid.

My Mozilla Firefox has been giving me trouble for a while - it consistently crashed whenever I tried to select something from a drop-down menu on a certain page. Finally I decided to re-install it...and I thought I should un-install it first. Because I thought I still had Internet Explorer also on my computer; I did download it a while ago. Well, there's no trace of it to be found.

It didn't take me long to realize what I had done, so I quickly did a system restore to just yesterday. Mozilla Firefox is back as an icon and as a listed program - but when I double-click it, the hourglass appears only briefly next to my arrow for a moment, then disappears, and nothing loads.

I've tried to get the internet to open in a bunch of different ways, clicking links in my mailbox and using the Gmail symbol in my toolbar to "go to inbox," but nothing works. I know the internet's working because I can load my IM programs and talk to people.

So I just have no idea how to get the internet back on your computer when you don't have any sort of browser to begin with. I'm afraid I'm going to have to do something drastic like re-install Windows (and what's the consequences of that? Will it affect what's on my hard drive?).

So please, help will be vastly appreciated.

I hope someone out there can help me because i am well and truly stumped with this problem.
Here is the history

I ordered a brand new pc - Ath 64 X2 4600+ CPU, 1 GB RAM, 400GB SATA, 256MB 7900GT, 19" TFT, 16x DVDRW-DL
Running Mcafee Antivirus / Ad-aware

I originally had problems when my Graphics card wouldn't work. I installed some older versions of the drivers and it was working okay. Then I had some problems with some dll files and i couldn't open Windows due to the system/config error at start up. I managed to repair that installation. THe next day, my PC would not boot and I could not repair it. I then found out, i had bad sectors on the Hard disk so i tried formatting it. It is basically redundant now.

I then put in an old Hard Disk and installed Windows on that drive - working fine for a few days, but i always had small problems with DLL files and different applications closing for no reason.
Then the dreaded blue screen came -
stop: c000021a {fatal system error} the windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x000026c.

I then used a Memory check and that was fine. I checked the disk using chkdsk - fine. I then installed Windows from scratch, formatting the disk in the process and when it is copying the files - it says that some of the files cannot be copied. I press esc and because there is about 50 files missing, it doesnt install Windows properly. NOW THIS IS THE SAME DISC THAT WORKED A WEEK EARLIER... Read more

I read in one of the threads a comment about unchecking' enable install on demand' in internet options. What does this do if it is checked?
 

A:internet options..install on demand

Among other things, it allows websites you're visiting to download plugins necessary to view material on the page without your permission first
Things like shockwave player, midi plugins, and other stuff.

Spyware like Comet Cursor, Cydoor and many others also might get installed without you even noticing it.

And the same unfortunately goes for even nastier material.

This is not to say, that when you uncheck 'install on demand' you won't get spyware on your system.
Any freeware app you download might have some, but at least you retain a certain measure of say about what is or is not being installed on your system.

Cheers,

Hello, all...

I'm building a modest gaming machine for the kids, with the main components at the end of this message. My question is how to best make use of the 64GB SSD drive with the 1.5TB mechanical HD. From what I've read, the following are the most prevalent installation types:

1) Install Win 7 (and few key programs requiring fast access times) on the SSD... everything else (media, documents, etc.) on the mechanical HD.

2) Install everything on the 1.5TB and enable Intel's Rapid Storage Technology feature, using the 64GB SSD as the 'cache' drive.

3) A variation of Option 1 where the users files are stored on the 1.5TB HD... I've read mixed results on the actual procedure, though...

4) Other suggestions?

With Option 1 (maybe even 3), I'm concerned that we'll run out of space on the "smallish" 64GB SSD after loading Win 7 (plus the recommended free space required). Appears to be the quicker option of all options. I wouldn't have that problem with Option 2, but would be slower, I'm sure. This machine will be mostly used to play games and internet browsing/gaming.

Any suggestions? Thanks! Below is what we have...

- i5-2500K 2nd Gen CPU

- 8GB RAM

- 64GB SSD (SATA-3)

- 1.5TB 5900 RPM (SATA-3)

- GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB

- BIOSTAR TZ68A+ MB w/ Intel Z68 chipset (Intel? Rapid Storage Technology)

- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

A:64GB SSD + 1.5TB HD... Options for fresh Win 7 install?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Personally, I'd go for Option 1 to take full advantage of your SSD performance.

Microsoft recommend 20GB minimum, with up to 40GB preferable for Windows 7 so that still leaves you 20-40Gb or so for your applications.

If funds allow, you might want to consider a larger SSD. Failing that, just install Windows 7 and apps with fast access requirements to your SSD and the rest on your spinner.

My computer is infected with I don't even know what anymore. I am running windows xp 32 bit. Firefox is my default browser. I have run AVG, which has been causing me problems for quite some time. I cannot delete it. I have run Malwarebytes, TDSkiller, SUPERantispyware, Ccleaner (which I believe caused more problems in the registry), under the advisory of Microsoft technicians. These scans always find something and quarentine or delete it. But the problems are never gone.

For starters, my DNS has been hacked. I have the rapidly growing "google search virus" as some call it. As I mentioned before I can't remove AVG, which I believe is either directly or indirectly a big part of the problem. I don't know enough about it to do anything, but I do know that there are problems with my registry. I can't download anything from MSN (such as updates or new service packs), and numerous other sites. To download any antispyware or malware program, I have to find a mirror link to it. I also cannot run Internet Explorer.

I am afraid that I am going to have to reinstall Windows, however my PC didn't come with the disc, and I certainly can't afford it right now, so even if I wanted to, I can't do this right now anyway.

I've searched a lot of the forums here, hoping to find answers, but I understand that problems this deep, aren't as general as normal problems, and a more personal role of what's going on inside my computer nee... Read more

Hi, my HP Mini notebook is in a bit of a mess and I need to re-install Windows 7 Starter.I put it to a shop but they deleted the recovery partition and it is still in a mess. F11 at startup does not work and I have no recovery disk or drive. I tried to download from Microsoft but they say to contact the manufacturer. The only options on the HP website is guidance on using the recovery options O don't have. I think I need somewhere to download Windows 7.I am really stuck, hope someone can help. Thanks very much in advance.Cheers, Dave

HEllo everyone,
I came here just seeking some advice on a new HDD install and how i should partition the new drive.

I'm taking out an old 80gig HDD i have because it's been acting slow and i'm afraid it's going to die on me. it's probably a few years old. anyway i bought a new 750gig to put in there and am installing XP Media Edition. My plan was to after the install create a second partition to back up the initial install on so that i can more easily do a format later if i need too. the second partition would strickly be for the back up image. then i would make a 3rd partition on the drive for media files.

2 questions.

1. Should i install all my drivers and main programs like viruse and firewall, utorrent, itunes, and any other programs i would normally use before i backup the install to an image file? or should i jsut backup the windows install and nothing else?

2. Should i keep my programs on a separate partition then the winxp main files? or just keep all installed programs together with the windows install? does that make sense? hope so. And if I'm going to keep all programs and winxp install on the same partition...how large should the partition be? right now my winxp HDD is 80 gigs and 90% full...so should the new partition for winxp be maybe 150gigs? with the back up being whatever the size of the partition is that the fresh install takes up? guessing maybe 15gigs?

i think that was more then 2 questions in there, but if you made it... Read more

Hi,
Does anyone know where I can obtain an install disk which has the option to allow me to format the disk?

I have a license key but I've lost my original disk which allowed me to format and re-partition as part of the install procedure. I downloaded one some time back but as you boot from it it just launches into installation which is of no use

Is there any way to get a copy of the original disk? I know most manufactures don't supply them these days but a copy of one of the original disks would be useful!!

Thanks

Hello! I just did a clean install of W7 X64 Ultimate on a new SSD. All went well and it works fine. My issue is that when I boot, I am presented with the screen asking me which W7 I want to boot... two W7 options are listed.

I only have one W7 partition and would like to get rid of this option. How can I fix this?

Thanks for your help!

A:Clean install shows two W7 options at boot - how do I fix this?

No other HD's plugged in during install? Check Disk management if you're not sure.

You should be able to delete the ghost listing on msconfig>Boot tab.

If not, install EasyBCD 2.0 to remove it on Edit OS tab.

my friend brought his computer to me to help him out with. it's running really slow, the internal wireless cannot pick up internet, i can't install malwarebites either in safe mode or not. Spybot installed but would not open. Task manager is locked. He had an expired version of norton. I couldn't uninstall norton so i did a manual uninstall(used to work for Mcafee) and then tried to get Mcafee's scan in dos to work, which i couldn't even extract the sdat until i did it in safe mode with cmd. I was finally able to get that to run, but also know that it is not specifically designed for malware. The computer is getting slower by the minute. System restore was deleted. So, now the scan in dos will finish in a few hours, i'm hoping that it'll get me to a point that i can install a spyware scanner. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Combofix wouldn't do the Recovery console install either. He has winxp sp3. I haven't tried to run combo fix straight up yet. Thanks
B. Rake
..The scan finished, detected and deleted 11 problems, still no task manager/installation abilities/or running of any other antivirus, spyware removal programs. Running the scan again, it got stuck close to the end for a few hours. Smitfraudfix instantly recieved the whatever it's called that asks you to send info to microsoft about whatever problem. I also found WebVideo Support....
Thanks

okay, i wasn't able to get anywhere past that. My friend has lost his recovery disks as well. is there any way to be able to install the windows recovery console w/o them? i also have puppy linus, is there a way i can boot that then scan for windows viruses?

Cannot install Win8.1 on either SDD. Only one has ubunto. Repair options, I tried them all, cannot. What should I use to reformat the specific drive to which I want Win8.1. The drive I want it on has Ubunto and Win does not recognize its file system. Win will not enable the reformat option.

The other drive seemingly is not NTFS despite Win Repair enabling a reformat after which it still will not install to that drive for the same NTFS reason. I'd like Win to recognize it but do not want it installed to it.

I have no concern about saving or backing up anything. Clean wipe of both drives and install on the MSata would be ideal.

A:Install Win8.1 over Ubunto Win Repair Options Won't

Windows comand prompt diskpart shows disk 0, disk 1, and disk 2. Disk 1 and 2 are on the Msata. What commands do I use to remove the partition between Disk 1 and 2, then format for Windows install? I got a list of the commands from within DiskPart but still not sure after reviewing its attempt to teach me the syntax.
Then I'd like to reformat disk 0 so Windows will not have issues with it either.

Am I on the right track?

yeah. I have a problem. I'm trying to repair my Window XP installation with the CD but the option doesn't show up. It goes straight to the partitions screen. Help?

A:No options to repair install with recovery console?

then you can't do a Repair Install with that CD http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm There are other options you can do from the Recovery Console. But I would back up any data you want on that drive and then do a clean install.

Are there any undocumented installation options for Windows XP's Service Pack 3.

I've had to install SP3 hundreds of times and I haven't seen a situation yet where I would have benefitted from backing up files and creating restore points. I could save a lot of time if there were a way to eliminate these parts of the process.

Hi guys -

I have a one-year old laptop and the HDD died yesterday (click of death). I shut it down immediately, tried rebooting but no luck. It's in the freezer now but...ya, I don't think so either.

My question is - what are my options to get this laptop running Windows7 again? Originally it had Home Premium 64-bit on it.

I know I need another HDD of course. No problem there. But Windows...that's where I'm confused. Here's what I have:

1) A DVD I made soon after I bought the laptop, following Windows' instructions - I labeled it "Win7 Home Prem Recovery."

2) A retail copy of Win7 Pro I installed on my desktop. (I realize I can't use the same product key)

3) A copy of Win7 sp1, downloaded from this site: **REMOVED**

I hope I don't have to buy another copy of Windows...that doesn't seem fair. Is it as simple as using the Product Key on the bottom of the laptop?

If I *can* use that Product Key on the laptop to activate Windows, which DVD should I use? I don't care about any of the files that were on the laptop originally.

Thank you all so much - I appreciate any thoughts you can share.

A:Install / Reinstall Windows on Laptop - Options?

#1 should work
#2 is no good - different product key
#3 might work if that is a clean copy. You will have to apply the product key that you find on the bottom of your laptop

Best is to first create a primary, active Partition on your new HDD into which to install. You can use the bootable CD of Partition Wizard for that.
