Preferred Solution: Free Download Site of Older Program Versions

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.)

Are you looking for a site kind of like Old Version? Although it appears that they don't have Faxtalk Messenger Pro 6, they do have older versions of many other programs!

Enjoy!

Hi,
Over the course of time, our environment has managed to accumulate multiple versions of Sysmon and I need some older versions to test against an upgrade script that I have written.
Is there some reputable place where older versions of Sysmon are available for download (preferably Microsoft) for testing purposes? I am in need of 32 and 64-bit versions of 2.0, 3.11, and 4.0, if available.
Thanks,

Hello folks,
I have a small question to ask about avg antivirus free editon. I am running of course, the 8.5 edition and had a small problem with it having a little false positive fit. Usually ive seen this from avg before and they would have a small dot update that would fix it but lately im noticing that my . updates are not happening for instance, avg 8.5.283 and the installed version on my pc according to the main avg window is: 8.5.278. What is odd is that the program does not update. Now, i have the new ad aware anniversary edition installed on my pc and heard a report from my dad with it interfering with an install. Could this be causing the problem? Because other menial updates do work properly in avg and i have no problem. Is anyone else having this problem? If anyone has a solution please let me know. Also, is it normal for avg to not update the main program through its own updater?
Thanks!

I have the 2002 Microsoft Office Professional version and put it on my newer laptop which had a trial version of Office 2003 (no discs given for backup). After the updates I did last week I could no longer open the .MDI files from 2003. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling via system restore selection of the date the program was removed. Then I ran into the missing file SKU112.CAB issue and could not initiate 2003 again. I gave up when nothing resolved that for me, uninstalled 2003 and still cannot open my .MDI files because Document Imager only does .TIFF now.
The solution posted here on changing the program within control panel, add/remove programs menu was for a 2007 version but I gave it a try anyway and of course it did not work for me.
I saved FAFSA, Taxes and other important items to be printed out via these .MDI file extensions by clicking print and being given the Document Imager as a "printer" selection. Can you please tell me how to force MDI to recognize a file extension .MDI ?

There may be ways to force install an earlier version of BIOS, but they could be risky and could brick your motherboard.

At the end of this month, Avast will end support for our older consumer versions of Avast Antivirus. Those are: Avast Free Antivirus, Avast Pro Antivirus, Avast Internet Security, and Avast Premier.

A good antivirus program is a necessity to protect your Windows PC from malware attacks, to keep your computer running smoothly, and to protect your online identity and personal data. Over the past 3 years, Avast engineers have improved our database of known virus definitions, themechanism in which zero- day and widespread malware are detected, and the frequency of streaming updates sent to our customers. Avast 2015, with its unique Home Network Securityfeature which scans your home network for potential risks, is our best performing security product yet.

After May 31st, 2015, Avast will no longer provide security patches or technical support for versions 8.0.1497 and lower. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malware, endangering your machine and the data on it. Please update to the latest version so you can receive regular security updates and benefit from the enhanced features and higher detection rates that protect your computer from malicious attacks. This update is also recommended because the latest version is compatible with Windows 10.

If you are running an older version of Avast, you can easily move to the latest version of Avast 2015.

Microsoft has announced that after January 12, 2016, it will be dropping all support for Internet Explorer, except for version 11.
That means if you are still using an older version of Internet Explorer, there will be no further security updates for it.
This will affect Windows XP/Vista users, but will not affect Windows 7 users(who have upgraded to IE11) or Windows 8/10 users.
Many users have already switched to Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome as their primary browser, so this will not be a problem for many of them.

What is end of support?
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical supports and security updates. Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
Internet Explorer 11 offers improved security, increased performance, better backward compatibility, and support for the web standards that power today’s websites and services. Microsoft encourages customers to upgrade and stay up-to-date on the latest browser for a faster, more secure browsing experience.

What does this mean?
It means you should take action. After January 12, 2016, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for older versions of Internet Explorer. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware, helping to keep users and their data safer. Regular security updates help protect computers from malicious attacks, so upgrading and staying current is important.
