Preferred Solution: Best Modern Web Browser for 2017

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've been using Internet Explorer 6 for ages and I'm perfectly happy with it, but some sites I visit keep advising me that my browser is outdated and will soon be ineffective on some sites, such as facebook. I keep getting advised to upgrade to a "modern browser" such as firefox or IE8 or some other one, I forget which. Anyway, I don't really know which one I should be upgrading to, having been using IE forever I'm inclined to just get their latest version, but I thought I'd make an effort to look into the alternatives. Soooo, my question is, what are the pros and cons of different browsers and is there one that stands out above the rest that you'd recommend, and why?? Thanks much for any advise or guidance.

At the advice of just about everyone I finally have upgraded from IE6 which I've been quite happy with but which is apparently "hopelessly outdated", so I've been told repeatedly (even though it did what I wanted fine). Sooo, after spending a bunch of time trying to decide which direction to go, I've installed both IE8 and Firefox (I didn't even know you could run different browsers on the same PC). Well, admittedly I just installed them yesterday, but straight off they both have problems I don't know how to fix!!

IE8 is giving me grief as follows: One- I'm getting a constant window popping up called "view and manage your IE add ons". Every time I close it, it pops back up. I don't know how to make it go away, or what it wants me to do exactly. Two- IE8 seems to have a pop up blocker problem. Even when I turn the pop up blocker off it still continues to block every pop up, even if I set it to the lowest setting. In IE6 there used to be a handy option allowing you to select "allow pop ups temporarily" or even "always allow pop ups from this site" just by right clicking on the alert bar. IE8 doesn't have this that I can see. It does offer the option "turn pop up blocker off" but even if I select this option the pop up I need to use continues to be blocked. For example, one of my online banking sites security verification measures involves the use of a pop up menu where the user must select security information. Well, I can't ... Read more

I think I already know the answer but I wanted to know if there is a way to keep/launch ModernIE if you make something other than IE your default browser?

Although it has a mess for favorites I do like the simplicity of ModernIE and often prefer to browse using it from the Start screen. However, it does suffer from some rendering issues and sometimes I need to "view on desktop". I often find if ModernIE has rendering issues, so too will IE10. I would prefer that my default desktop browser be Firefox. When I set Firefox to my default, it kills any access to Modern IE and any IE icon leads to the desktop.

So is there no way to keep ModernIE as a browser if you have a different default browser? It isn't that I don't like ModernIE, I just want it as a secondary browser instead of my default.

Answer:Any way to keep Modern IE with another default browser?

Hello esspee,

Sorry, but no. Internet Explorer must be kept set as the default program to have the Metro IE10.


If it helps, you could switch to IE10 desktop mode from within IE10 Metro at anytime.
http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ktop-view.html
In addition, you can also set links to open to either IE10 desktop or Metro mode.

Hello everyone. What gives with the Windows 8.1 modern browser? is it this laggy and freezey on other Windows 8.1 laptops? Whenever I get a popup it freezes for up to 30 seconds! It's ridiculous! Any page with a few animated ads? Takes ages. It's woeful. IE or Chrome in desktop work great.Is there another modern UI browser with decent touch support and low resource use that isn't total garbage like IE?Thanks!

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro... Modern UI browser is terrible!

The Metro interface on IE works fine and very fast on all my Windows devices, including my Yoga 2 13. You have a problem with your device if it is running poorly. If you can't track it down, try a factory reset.

I bought a new 2in1 laptop. I have some requirements, but not a lot. I use ad block and Lastpass. Those are absolute requirements. Using Internet Explorer in Modern UI doesn't use any plugs-ins, so that's out. Firefox had a Modern UI Beta, but gave up on it. Chrome has a Modern UI version, but wants to turn my PC into a Chromebook.

The closest thing I can find is to use Firefox in Desktop mode in full screen. The only problem there is that the onscreen keyboard doesn't appear when it's needed. Also, when in full screen mode, the icon to bring it up the keyboard isn't visible. This makes this solution a non-starter, too.

I can't be the first person to have this problem. Has anyone solved it? This issue pretty much defeats the touch function for me.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

The vulnerability was spotted by Filippo Cavallarin, CEO of We Are Segment, an Italian company specialized in cyber-security and ethical hacking. Cavallarin privately reported the issue -- which he codenamed TorMoil -- to the Tor Project last week. Tor Project developers worked with the Firefox team (Tor Browser is based on the Firefox browser) to release a fix. Today, the Tor team released version 7.0.9 to address the vulnerability. Tor Browser 7.0.9 is only available for Mac and Linux users. Tor Browser on Windows is not affected.The issue is actually a Firefox bug in the way the browser handles file:// URLs. While the issue is harmless in Firefox, it's catastrophic in the Tor Browser.So get updated to 7.0.9.

Well, the LIRC project looks defunct to me. Their last version was dated in the year 2003, and it doesn't support anything but COM ports that I can see. In other words, no support for USB or things such as the IR controller that comes with some Creative soundcards such as mine. I used to use uICE, which is a commercial software that is quite capable, but, the copy protections they've put in there are so extreme that even legal copies sometimes have troubles, and I haven't been able to get mine to work in a while now no matter how much I reinstall and such. I've tried various commercial alternatives, but, that was the only one that truly worked for me at all, and now even it doesn't. At this point, I'm just sick of dealing with commercial software for something like this.

What I REALLY wanted to see was a true Windows port of LIRC, but, since that doesn't exist, is there anything else out there that is free which I could actually get to work with my soundcard's IR port? In particular, I want to be able to control my video player (MPC) with options like fast-forward, skip forward/back, play/pause, and so on. I don't really need a system volume control very much, which is about the only thing I can do with the creative software related to video playback.

What I loved about uICE when it actually worked was it's sheer configurability allowing you to configure any remote that the device could read (which even let me use my porta... Read more

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

I've just been given a P-133 with 24 MB of memory, integrated 1 MB graphics, and a 2 GB disk. It's in very good condition considering it's age, so I figured I'd set it up instead of shelving it. Problem is, it's running Win95, which I avoided like the plague for it's entire tenure. I'm looking for an OS that doesn't have text-only interface and will run on this system. It has to be able to speak to a WinXP network without a lot of setup hassle and work with the most common file formats (txt, doc, jpg, avi, etc.).

Does such an OS even exist? I know that most OSes out today are scaled to run on minimum modern systems, which this system definitely doesn't qualify as, but there's got to be *one* OS out there that fits my bill, right?

This is of course all going to be speculation, but what do you guys think comes after Modern (Metro)? I assume Winodws 9 will use Modern, as will Windows Phone 9, but what comes after that? More Modern (I doubt this, MS used Aero for Vista and 7, so I assume Modern is the same), or something different?
 

Answer:What's after Modern UI?

You'd think MS would want to keep the UI look fresh at least every few years, with tweaks between major UI overhauls. I don't particularly like the Win8 UI design, either Metro or flattened/color sucked out classic (iOS 7 does a good job with a flattened UI for comparison).

I don't expect any radical change in UI for Windows 9, at least as far as an overall theme change, and it's too early to really guess what MS will do next. The direction of UIs in one or two more years may play a bigger part of how the next Windows UI overhaul evolves.

Could not find the blue tile with the white "E" which on my Windows 8 is my Metro/Modern UI browser. Is there a way to put back the Modern UI IE? I went under all applications and it wasn't there either. Why would it be obliterated from her system in the first place?

Unzip and run the ModernIE.exe file to launch the touch friendly IE.

You can pin it to the taskbar, to the Start menu or to the Start screen - as you wish.

It is based on the "option two" from this article: Get modern Internet Explorer back in Windows 10 and uses the code from the "AdamUCF"'s PS script.

I've just dug out my old Windows 98 computer so i can start using an old music software programme again. trouble is it has a 25-pin port for the monitor cable. the only monitors i've got are flat-screen 15 pin and I must have thrown out the old cable. Anyone any idea how i can hook it up?

Answer:old pc to modern monitor. help!

I would suspect the 25-pin port is a Serial (COM) port and not the video port. If the port has pins (male) it is a serial port. The monitor port should be 15-pin female in three rows of 5 and is normally coloured blue.

I don't play many games nowadays. Certainly not the newer ones as I tend to stick with games I've owned for years. One thing that concerns me is the size of install of the modern games. I've seen a couple of late that shocked me because they are 40-50 gb in size. That seems utter madness. Is that the norm nowadays? I was thinking of getting myself back into Steam but I don't fancy kicking off downloads that seem so large or even wasting such a large % of my hard drive to a single game.

Answer:Are most modern games always about 50 gb?

Hi Scotty,

It appears the games just keep getting larger in size with no end in sight. In fact, there are a few out there that are well over 100GB in size. However, you can still find some games that are relatively small in size but who wants to buy a game based on size?

Good luck,

Hello all! I have just upgraded to windows 10. A quick visit in the windows store revealed that a few of the apps that I have installed already are also available as modern apps (i.e. QQ, onenote etc.) which makes me wonder if there is any performance boost in using modern apps over desktop ones or vice versa? Thanks!

Answer:Modern app vs Desktop app

Hello mx900 and welcome to the TenForums

There is no general rule of thumb on this; often the modern apps lack some of the functionality of the desktop apps but this is not always the case. I think you have to experiment and see. I have found OneNote to be good as the modern app, the Dropbox app is not so good for me as it does not sync with my desktop folders.

Answer:Can Someone Help with a Corrupt Modern App?

First issue I can see is you are running the powershell command as your user. You need to right click and run it as admin.

The powershell prompt should start in C:\Windows\system32 not C:\Users\teddy and the windows should say Administrator in the titlebar like this.



Your log is saying it can't find files. This could be because of authority. Alternatively it could be because they really are not there. There are manifest files which list the dependencies of individual apps and it could be it is referring to something that doesn't exist or just something you aren't authorized to see.

Try it running as Administrator and post the results.






I just want to play some mindless cards.



You could consider something else in the interim. Both of these are better than the store solitaire in my opinion.

1. The old Windows 7 games. I used to use these in Windows 10 and they work fine up until the last public update (build 10586) released in November. You can download them from here Hearts and Solitaire Games in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums If you are part of the Windows 10 insider testing program though they don't work anymore (at least for me).

2. What I use now is Download 123 Free Solitaire - MajorGeeks . This is pretty OK (and has lots of solitaire versions) but unfortunately doesn't let you cheat by repeatedly undoing your moves unless you get the paid version which I haven't.

There's an OEM for it for $100 on eBay. (AUD, 72.91 USD) I don't have a paid OS yet (Win10 IP, planning on Linux Mint) I'd like a retail copy of 7 at some point, so I've always got a transferable licence for future systems.
 
Basically the plan is to have Windows 7 retail dual-booting with XP x64.
 
But I don't want to waste $100 on XP64 if it's not any good. I love XP, and to be able to use it with a 64-bit CPU and 8 GB RAM is enough to make me want to buy this. I'm just not sure if there will be any major problems with the OS that make it no better than the 32-bit version. (I know of the little glitches already)
 
So basically, is XP64 worth buying at $100?

Answer:Windows XP x64 on modern PC

IMO XP is not worth $100 plus it is no longer supported by MS so no updates leaving it vulnerable, I would move to 7 which has support until 2020.  That will give you time to think out your next step, 7 can be bought for about the same $$.

At present I have a humble Duron 700 which is somewhat out of date but still functional.

Question: Modern UI Failure

I installed an update this morning (the little action center flag in the bottom corner of the desktop told me to), after which my start screen displays nothing except the background, whenever I search for anything it says "This app can't be searched". Nothing relating to the start screen can open, so I pressed 'Windows + r' to get myself to desktop. I can open IE in desktop but can't view in start. System Restore failed and no matter how many times I try it will not work. When I look through Control Panel at the recently installed updates I can't find the one I installed this morning. I have followed the steps on many different forums, and the next step is to do a system refresh - but there's a catch.

I can swipe in to bring up the charms bar (that's what it's called, right?), and I then click on settings. At the bottom i select "Change PC Settings", but along with every other part of Modern UI, nothing happens. As far as I know, from this menu that I cannot open is the only possible way to do a system refresh/reset, thus I am stuck with an inoperable operating system.

I am very frustrated with this, and am hoping anybody out there can help me.

Skype-Modern App

Ok, I'm using the Modern Skype app and I want to change my picture.
So I click on my user pic and I am taken to My Pictures folder.
But I don't wanna be there, so I "Go Up" to the Users Folder and
click/open Play. But I do not see App Data listed.

What I would like to do is browse to this specific folder
without leaving the Modern Skype app.

c:\Users\Play\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Pictures\

Why?
Because that is where the picture I wish to use is located.

I am well aware that I could drop out of the Modern interface
and copy/move the file from there to the My Pictures folder.
But why is one 'forced?' to take that extra step?

Answer:Old Game on modern computer...

It would probably be easiest to just run it in DOS, if you have 98. I mean, that's what it was made for.

So I have no knowledge about PC gaming other than very basics (I know what Ram is and other basics.) and I have no DIY skills so I wouldn't be confident building my own PC. I saw this cheap Rig available on several sites but cheapest on eBay. The link is herelinkI was just wondering which parts of this would I need to upgrade and which would be good enough for modern gaming. If this is way off can anyone direct me to something more realistic. I know it is cheap but I hope it is a reasonable base. thanks in advance.

Answer:Is this pc good enough to run modern games?

The graphics card would definitely need to be upgraded as it is pretty crap for gaming. I would also want to know what power supply (PSU) was in the PC as that also might need to be upgraded along with the GPU (Graphics card).
I see there is a phone number which is good so call and find out the what PSU is supplied.
What is your overall budget and do you need an operating system(OS) monitor,keyboard and mouse?

Answer:Solved: modern warfare 2

If you have vista/Windows OS then go to your firewall settings and allow the game to connect to the internet or press shift-ALT when in-game for coming up on the dashboard and see if you have any messages from your firewall,also check your router settings and patch your game if it hasn't been updated.

Hi.

Just installed Windows 8.1. Both my monitors have a resolution of 1920 X 1080. Both have DPI set accordingly. My right hand monitor is fine, my left is fine when running the desktop and desktop apps. However, whenever I run an app on the second screen, it seems to be larger than normal (zoomed in). I think this is a DPI issue, and Ive tried tweaking the registry but to no avail. I have all the latest drivers. The start menu only displays 4 rows, yet when i move the resolution down to around 1600, it shows 5 rows. Weird.

Need help!

Thanks,

Alex

Answer:Messed up DPI of modern UI on one monitor

Hello Alex,

You might double check to see if DPI is set properly for the Modern UI (Metro) screens for the size of your monitors to see if that may be the issue.

Answer:lost driver for modern

You will need to know the make and model of the modem and go to the manufacturers website and download a new one.If it is a win-modem and came with the motherboard, the driver will probably be on the motherboard drivers CD.

Am occasionally having an occurence where I press Start, Start Screen then appears. I begin typing to search, if no results are found there's nothing to select and the search screen remains 'on top' whether I alt-tab, go to Start again, or even press CTRL, ALT + DEL.

When I go to Start, the start screen appears again. As soon as I click on anything that requires the desktop, i.e. Excel or Word, the search screen appears again. The only way I can escape the search screen being on top of everything is to log out.

This is on three different Windows 8 Systems.

Thanks.

Hi,
Was just wondering what the difference was between modern and desktop IE 11.
I seem to run into problems when using the desktop version, and the problems can be fixed by using modern.

For example when creating a document in icloud.com, it will not let me create a new one in desktop IE but in modern it will.

When watching youtube videos some videos will not play in IE desktop without compatibly mode and when in modern they will play either way.

There are some other types of problems that are fixed as well.

So what is the real difference between the desktop and modern IE

None of my links actually open up to a browser page when I click them in the Modern UI Evernote, Bing Search, XBox Games (including the "Play" link) or any other start screen app that has links. They do work while in the browsers.

I updated from Windows 7 keeping apps and files etc. I had Chrome as the default browser and that basically turned off Modern UI IE, so I made IE the default (and unchecked the use desktop browser to open links) but it still won't open any links.

The little hand over the link just does nothing when I click it.

This is pretty frustrating as it makes my entire start screen sort of "dumb".

Hello all, I been trying to fix a fix for this, as far I know all MS windows 8.1 updates are installed, but the problem is I don't get the context menu when I right click any tiles in Metro. So I can't remove or re-size anything. When I right click it only give me check mark in right side the box. Anyone have any ideals?

thanks.

Answer:No Context Menu in Modern UI

Welcome to the Windows 8 forums, Orless.

Your screenshot shows that yes, all updates are installed. I just checked and I have a context menu when I right click, but nothing like what I had before. There used to be a list of stuff along the bottom of my screen that's no longer there. Strange, but I guess I don't need it since I haven't missed it until now.

I guess I'll bow out for now and let someone else see if they can solve your problem. Sorry I can't help.
