Having Printer Problems After W10 Up Grade?

Recommended Posts

Yup! CNET shot them selves in the foot for a few bucks. That's really sad, but I'm afraid more will follow in the future! Bleeping Computers asking for money for law suit. What is all that BS about??  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/604046/we-need-your-help-bleepingcomputer-is-being-sued-by-the-creators-of-spyhunter/

Nice read from grooypost.com @Steve We need to tie groovy in with this forum some way!;)

When you finish trying all the rest, try the best by far. "Wise Program Uninstaller"

@Profiler Looks like the tool is freeware but "Ad Supported". How does that look? Where are the ads inserted? Are they tracking me like google. I just hate free stuff that really isn't..... free....

@ShockerSH,  Where do you see that it is Ad Supported?

TBH, I have never seen any advertisements and I don't see where it says that anywhere.

Perhaps I am not looking in the right place?

This is what my Wise Program Uninstaller looks like.....

Hey @ShockerSH If you're running W10 and surfing the web you are being tracked. Do you do Facebook?xD

No, I don't use facebook. And yeah, I know I'm being tracked, that's not the point. I know who Microsoft is, and Google. I have no idea who WiseCleaner is. I'll take a look at it. Just a good reminder (and hot button for @Steve over the years) so I'm trained now to always read the EULA. And no, I don't run around with tin foil on my head hehehe but I have been reading @Steve blog for years and years so he's got me all paranoid now about this kind of thing. O.o

Thanks @allheart55 (Cindy E) for explaining about Wise program uninstaller.

@ShockerSH  The moment you boot your Computer, your privacy goes out the window.

Your IP Providor's Servers record your every key stroke.

As Cindy said there are no adds anywhere.

I only recommend software that I have tested over a long period of time.

Always a good habit but not many people take the time or effort.

Have you ever checked out the EULAlyzer ?

It's a very small but handy tool that analyzes the EULA for you.

There is a paid and free version. I use the free one.

It only takes seconds to use. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Hi! How do you explain @ShockerSHs screen shot??:oAd-Supported

Also I'm interested in what that means! I too am very cautious about my down loads. The freeware programs have become corrupted with PUPs and who knows what else they are installing on us!;)

I downloaded my Wise Uninstaller directly from the programmer's website.

I see what you mean about the download at Major Geeks saying that the software is Ad Supported.

I recommend that if you are going to try the software that you download it from here...http://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-program-uninstaller.html

It means to check every step of install in case unwanted programs are offered.

Ahh, of course it does. That brings to mind another small but handy piece of software.

One that Gary actually turned me on to, Unchecky.

It prevents that unwanted/bundled crap from trying to install.

It unchecks the boxes that will allow it. Great program!
