Preferred Solution: Avast beta 17.5.2300 released

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.)

Avast 5.0 beta was released yesterday. This new version comes with a clean interface instead of the hard to operate media player type GUI it had. At the moment it has several limitations and bugs, so casual users stay away. If you want to just test it out go ahead.
A list of the current limitations can be found here.

Hello everyone,

We?ve got great news for you today: Avast Cleanup, our PC-cleaning software, is undergoing some big changes. It?s sporting a brand-new design, includes exciting new features, and best of all, is now also standalone, which means you can use it even without downloading our antivirus first.

Of course, it?s going to need a good beta-testing to ensure we get your thoughts, opinions, and insights so we can make the best it can be. So please don?t hesitate to send us your feedback.

It?s important to note there will be three versions of Avast Cleanup standalone: the trial version, which gives you 14 days to try the full Cleanup experience. Afterwards, you?ll automatically begin using the ?free? version, which will only allow you to perform browser cleaning functions. To get full functionality back, you?ll need to buy the paid version.

FEATURES

CLEAN: Clean your browser?s cache, search history, browsing history, and the cookies you?ve been gathering from your time surfing the Web. We also detect add-ons and search engines with poor reputations (or, with a small retention rate among our users) and help you get rid of them. In the trial and paid versions of Cleanup, you also have access to junk cleanup, where we get rid of all the unused junk files on your PC.

OPTIMIZE: In the trial and paid versions of Cleanup, you can tweak the system settings and boot-up options to minimize your computer?s start time. We can also help you get rid of u... Read more

Hi all,
sorry for the delay with this beta, but it's finally here. We are now busy working on integration with AVG but I hope you will like the changes coming early next year (and yes HIPS included (wink) ) Main purpose of this beta to test its stability and get your feedback on the new UI. We didn't changed just the "face" but also the framework behind the UI so it gives us now much more flexibility in fixing various issues and bugs in the UI much faster than before.

We listened to the feedback, so there won't be color difference between Free and paid versions and all will be dark. Navigation moved back to the left side, and the window is now larger. We know it's not perfect now and we will work hard in the upcoming weeks to polish it for release quality.

Newest beta version: 12.4.2281

Changes:
+ Fully new UI framework with modern graphics
+ Removed screensaver and desktop gadget
+ Huge internal changes for product stabilization

Download links:

Known issues:
+ Some UI parts are not fully finished yet, excuse glitches
+ SmartScan and Browser Cleanup not finished
+ UI glitches in some expiration messaging dialogs
+ Web shield problems on Win 10 internal preview

Firefox 3.6.4 Inches Forward, New Beta Download Available.



The next update to Firefox 3.6 inches forward with Mozilla hammering away at the upcoming release, but with slow progress so far. In all fairness, Firefox 3.6.4 is a shift from the refreshes that are served to major versions of the open source browser. In this regard, unlike normal, minor updates focused on delivering stability improvements and security patches, version 3.6.4 is a Frankenstein build, having swallowed codename Lorentz and Firefox 3.7 in order to offer users Out of Process Plugins as soon as possible. At the end of the past week, Mozilla made available for download a new development milestone of Firefox 3.6.4, as it prepares to launch the fully fledged update.

"Firefox 3.6.4 provides uninterrupted browsing for Windows and Linux users when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins,? an excerpt from the release notes accompanying v.3.6.4 Beta (Build 4) reads. ?If a plugin crashes or freezes, it will not affect the rest of Firefox. You will be able to reload the page to restart the plugin and try again.?

OOPP was the feature that justified Firefox 3.7 for Mozilla. In this sense, when the decision was made to offer OOPP to Firefox 3.6.x users, all plans for Firefox 3.7 were folded. Mozilla already confirmed officially that Firefox 4.0 would be the next major release of the open source browser, a milestone that is currently planned for l... Read more

A couple of new things
Speed dial extensions





Quote:
Speed Dial extensions transform your Speed Dial from a picture into live action! What does that mean? Instead of a static link to a weather web site, a Speed Dial extension can display the forecast for your specific location. In fact, we built that extension.
Speed Dial extensions are easy to make. All you need is a little tiny bit of web development skills.


Password synchronization





Quote:
Opera 11.50 beta has synchronization of passwords - made securely through Opera Link so you can log on to your password protected sites from anywhere. Opera Link also synchronizes bookmarks, your Speed Dial, custom search engine preferences, notes (yes, you can take notes in the Opera browser), typed browser history and more.

Support for Windows 7: the window buttons now work when using the Windows 7 or Windows 7 Basic themes, and the Smart Taskbar matches the Windows 7 look, with support for no labels and small icons. If you disabled the window buttons in order to be able to use a previous release on Windows 7, you'll need to enable them again under UltraMon Options > Buttons and Menu Commands.

Thanks for the heads up.

Installed and working no problem so far. The taskbar preview doesn't work on the second task bar 9didn't really expect it too), but it is nice to have the taskbar looking proper, and the icons in it as well.

Doctor Web informs users about the release of Dr.Web anti-virus 7.0 beta for Android.

Currently the beta-version is available for free downloading from Android Market and runs under Android 2.1 and later. The updated anti-virus features the improved user interface and the Cloud Checker component. This module uses a cloud technology to scan links opened in a browser. As the user clicks on a link, it is sent automatically to the cloud service which determines whether the target web-site is safe and checks if it falls into an objectionable content category If the address is found in the objectionable or bogus site database, access to the web-page is blocked. In addition, the updated program includes several functional improvements.

Dr.Web 7.0 beta for Android comes with a limited validity key file. In addition to anti-Virus and Cloud Checker modules the application also includes anti-thief and anti-spam components.Click to expand...

Mozilla Firefox

A:Firefox 6 Beta released

Low and behold there I was happily surfing the Net and up pops this box saying Firefox 6.0B1 is ready to install, like it or not.

Installed with a little help from the installer. (see below)

However this release is so hurried or has so little change form 5.0 that even though the release is identified as 6.0 under Help ----About Firefox the introductory page that you get when Firefox updates says "Welcome to Firefox 5"

Four more things.

1. Out of my 20+ addons only two were incompatible with the update and I can live without those two as they only provide some nice to know but not necessary to know information.

2. The update updated to the Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ directory. I guess with all of these updates Mozilla has dropped the release number from the Firefox top folder name.

3. The auto install did not work for me, my guess is due to security restrictions. However I went to the Beta website, 6.0 is now there, downloaded the installer and installed 6.0B1 with that. No problems so far.

4. Since this installed into the Program Files (x86) directory path this version of Firefox 6.0B1 that I installed is the x32 version. I tried installing the 6.0 Aurora x64 on one computer a month or so ago. While it installed I couldn't get it to work so I just uninstalled it. I will stay with x32 for now. I don't know if there is as of yet a 6.0B1 for the x64 version.

P.S. I wonder what the odds are that someone will start a new thread on the 6... Read more

Rainmeter 1.2 beta (r320) available. Changelog below -

Change log after the jump

Major changes so far:

New !bang - !RainmeterRefreshApp
Does a full refresh of all skins and reloads the list of configs and Rainmeter.ini settings. This is the same as "Refresh All" from the system tray context menu. Is not the same as !RainmeterRefresh [config | *] as it can be used to make Rainmeter "see" a new folder added to \Skins by the user or a process. Note: This was added mostly to better support RainBrowser when a user adds a downloaded config while using RainBrowser.
New WebParser setting "DownloadFile="

DownloadFile
When Download is set to 1, the file is downloaded to DownloadFile folder in the skin folder as a filename set to this value. If you define it as "DownloadFile=image.jpg", DownloadFile folder will be created in the current skin folder then the downloaded file is saved as "image.jpg" If you define as "DownloadFile=photo\image.jpg", the subfolder photo is created then a file is saved in this folder.
Notes:
This file is not a temporary file so it is not deleted even if it close a skin.
As for specification of file path, it is not possible to specify by the absolute path and also specification to the outside of DownloadFile folder is not possible.

Paint.net 3.5.5 Beta 1 is available. Changelog below.



   Information

- Fixed the bug where saving as 8-bit PNG/GIF/BMP wasn?t always working. This often happened when ?Auto? bit-depth was selected, and based on the color complexity of the image it would choose 8-bit (for a smaller file-size) and then fail with ?error?. Usually this only happened with larger images.
- Improved performance of Gaussian Blur by 30-40% depending on your CPU (Intel Core i7 seems to show the best improvement).
- Improved performance of all the layer blend modes by 15-30%, depending on your CPU (Intel Atom seems to show the best improvement).
- Improved performance of zooming with the mouse wheel on dual-core Intel Atom systems.
