Alternative to Kalimages

Question: Alternative to Kalimages

My first post.

I'm into genealogy and I have over 3000 birth, marriage & death certificates.
For years I've tidied up the certificates in Photoshop CS3 and added keywords in the 'file info' section.
I then used a free program called 'Kalimages Basic' which would pick out any certificate depending on the keyword(s) I chose.
Can anyone tell me if there is a similar (free) program for windows 10?

Edit: I should have said that all the certificates are jpeg images.

Saw a lot of postings about the new version of QuickTime Alternative and Real Alternative everywhere (including Major Geeks) lately.

I agree it is a good idea to be able to use the codec without the player / crap installed, but I've released that the QT Alternative actually has a cracked QT7Pro Key... That is definately illegal! isn't it??

Why do mainstream software / news site (******** / majorgeeks / warp2search) still post this software then? What's next? Keygen for Nero?

The same for the codec pack, some has cracked DivX Pro inside!

Please response...
 

Answer:How legal are QuickTime Alternative & Real Alternative?

Welcome to Major Geeks!

If you can back up your allegations with verified facts, then I'm sure that you will have a lively debate.

Answer:Norton GoBack Alternative? XXClone Alternative

Is your computer and your data worth about 20? If so, you should buy Acronis True Image, and an external hard drive on which to keep your Acronis backups - you will then have no further worry about losing any of your precious data.

I'm running an x64 system and since last I checked real media doesn't offer a compatable version. So I've been using real alternative for quite a while and its pretty satisfactory. However it does not recognise files with arabic names or in arabic named folders. This bug has already been posted on classic media player's project page on sourge forge but the project seems to be rather dead so I doubt it'll ever be fixed anytime soon.

So does anyone know of an alternative player that runs real media files ?

Years ago I switched from Acrobat Reader to Foxit. At that time (if my memory chip serves me well), the Foxit download was about 3MB. Foxit have just launched V6 and the download has now reached bloatware proportions at 28MB (last V5 was less tham 16MB) and the menus have gone to ribbons.....
So I'm considering switching to another - Sumatra caught my eye (and it's 4.75MB).
Anyone got any comments on Sumatra (or want to suggest similar lightweight alternatives)?

Answer:Alternative to an alternative PDF reader

my foxit is about 43 megs

Question: IE Alternative

I recently got rid of a malware infection, specifically an IE browser hijack. I decided to find an alternative to IE and first opted for Mozilla Firefox. Then in learning, or at least thinking that Netscape was built on Mozilla's engine, I have been using Netscape 7.2. I installed it on both of our PCs. I am the exclusive user on mine and since the infection I have been ruthless about keeping the garbage out of my comp. However the wife and kids, who are not the least bit interested in it, unless thier PC starts messing up, use the other comp and I am trying to keep an eye on it for them while still making it useable for the nonsense that they like to use it for. To the point, I can't run the Trend Micro or Symantec online scans with Netscape. I am wondering if one of the IE alternatives, such as MyIE2, are both "safe" from hijack and able to run the scans?
 

Answer:IE Alternative

MyIE2 runs on the IE engine is as susceptible as IE itself.
Trend Micro in the UK uses Java for their scanner

Question: Alternative VNC

I'm trying to help this girl set up her computer properly through VNC. I got her to install the VNC server, disable windows firewall, and enable DMZ for her computer on her router, but I was still unable to connect to her. She can connect to my VNC server just fine. So I think it must be her ISP that is blocking the port.

Are there any reverse-connection vnc server and clients? Since she can connect to me, it would be nice if i could be the server, and her the client, but I would be remotely using her desktop, and not mine.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Answer:Alternative VNC

Question: SAS Alternative

I've noticed in malware forums that SUPERAnti-Spyware is not recommended due to declining performance and ratings. Does BC have any alternatives that are recommended. My current system has MSE, MBAM and Spywareblaster.
 
I'm looking for a free equivalent if at all possible.
 
Thanks

Answer:SAS Alternative

Hi sikntired Well, if you have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed, you already have your alternative to SUPERAntiSpyware. I would propose Spybot Search & Destroy, but it's the same as SAS, in decline. You could always use Emsisoft Anti-Malware if needed, but since it can be considered as an Antivirus (even thought the free version doesn't have real-time protection), it could conflict with Microsoft Security Essentials. But like I said, if you have Malwarebytes already, you're good.

I use AIM, but is there a program that's way better than AIM. And i'm talking about direct connect with other AIM members. I tried Trillian b4 and its a really good program but somehow i could not direct connection with another AIM user. Or did that change with the version now? I guess my main point is for a program to use all of the AIM features and more.
 

Answer:Alternative to AIM.

Try Trillian 3. Direct Connection certainly works--for me, at least. The Windows version of GAIM is the only AIM-related program I know of where Direct Connect is bugged to hell.

DeadAIM is also a decent one, if you want to try that.

Hi,

As much as I love NOD 32, I don't love it enough to spend $30 a year to keep receiving updates. So I was wondering if anyone knows of a "one time fee" type of deal. I'd like it to be just as good as NOD 32, but I doubt there's many out there that can really compete.

So, I come here, and I ask you, what's a good alternative? Oh and McAfee and Norton is completely off the table, so don't even mention it.

Question: Best alternative?

So, as a Virgin Media customer am I promised minimum of 60 Mbit/s Download,
I was achieving this barely via a power Ethernet adapter until I got DDoSed via the XBOX,
Since then I'm reaching speeds of 10-20 Mbit/s, I rang them up and some nice fella terminated all connections, this increased it by 10%, ALL wireless connections are hitting 60+ Mbit/s with ease, I have tried swapping sockets for the adapter and still no luck, apart from a tiny bit of increase.

If I can't don't a solution (Running a huge Ethernet cable through the house is not an option, I have younger siblings (5 and 2) play upstairs and will easily get to the line, plus mothers rules say I cannot do this, anyways, I don't know any solutions in my experience, does anyone have any solutions?
I have resettled modem, changed Ethernet cables etc. tried different sockets and it's not increasing.

Do you have an solution or maybe another power Ethernet adapter that you can recommend?

What I mean by a power Ethernet adapter (if that's the right name) is I have a Ethernet box in the mains and I connect a Ethernet cable from router to Ethernet adapter then I have another Ethernet adapter in my room where the PC is and have a Ethernet coming form that adapter to my Ethernet input in the back of my PC.

Hiya, after MANY problems from what I can only narrow down to being the MotherBoard itself (sound crashes etc with Half-life (one) engine - any other sound runs flawlessly, and as i play Team Fortress Classic a lot, this isnt the MotherBoard for me if it crashes so often!

So... I was looking for an alternative, it needs to be SLI preferably, but not sure what is a good alternative against this motherboard? So was just after some suggestions really. Specs atm are

AMD Ath 4000+
XFX GeForce 6800GT 256MBDDR3
DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR
2*74GB Raptors (SATA)
1*250GB WD HDD (IDE)
1GB OCZ Dual Channel RAM
+ A lot of cooling :P

Thanks in advance,
Moja

Answer:Alternative to DFI SLI-DR

DFI is some of the best boards out there especially for overclocking.

Are you sure it isn't your RAM having errors or your PSU being too weak?

Or perhaps the XFX cards, I've heard a lot of peopl having problems with those.

If it was the motherboard itself, it'd either not work or work, so that's what leads me to believe it's something else.

of course also make sure all the plugs are put into that board, the extra molex, floppy that goes near the PCI-E slot, aux pin things like that

Hi guys,

Thanks for taking 5 minutes of your time to read this post.

I presently have two computer at home, one desktop which I use all the time, and one HTPC, which is always logged on the MCE account to play movies and music.

What I wanted to do, is to make some task on my HTPC in background, I did find a patch to make concurrent session of Remote Desktop Protocol running, and it worked great, but..

The thing is, I'm trying to make some video editing in background in the alternate session, and since Remote Desktop emulate an audio device and bring the sound to the PC i'm taking control from, I cannot use any of my software, since they do not detect the audio drivers.

So I then tried UltraVNC, RealVNC and TightVNC, all of these will not mess with the audio driver, so I'll be able to start my application and make my video editing, but...

VNC will only login into the actual logged in user, and won't open a session, like RDP does, so each time I connect using VNC, it goes into the MCE account.

This is bad, since the idea is to be able to watch movies without noticing that some background task are being processed. I've got a dual core cpu and a lot of ram only for that. Otherwise I would have taken a single core cpu with 512mb of ram, that would have been more than enough to run MCE.

So that's about it, all I am looking for, is a software that will allow me to take control remotely of my HTPC, by opening a new session, and not taking control... Read more

I was always bothered that Win+X brings the system program up in a random alphabetic order. So I went to C:\Users\Wolfgang\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX, copied the shortcuts from the Group2 folder into the Group3 folder. Then I made a shortcut of the Group3 folder on the desktop and also pinned that to Start Now I have all the system programs in an easy access and they are alphabetically ordered.

You can refine that by defining your own folder there and copy only those shortcuts that you really use.

Question: AIM alternative

I am getting fed up with trillian as it takes half my boot time to load and seems bloated. I tried installing several old versions of AIM but they would all constantly disconnect after a few minutes. Than I tried the newest version of AIM that came with a ton of boatware/spyware and I watched my CPU graph spike every few seconds from using it. Than I tried Miranda and I couldn't connect to AIM. Can someone recommend me a good free or ad-based program that I can use to connect to AIM for the simple task of chatting? I don't need any frills. All my contacts and such are tied to AIM and the old version was great until it started disconnecting.
 

Answer:AIM alternative

Wrong forum, you may want to get the mods to move this from OS to the software forum.

I use trillian, it doesn't take that long to load (though it does take a bit), how long is it taking on your setup? If this software works, but is taking longer to load than normal, it'd be best to try and fix it. No sense in loading new software because the old stuff failed.

Okay so I do a lot of gaming, and I just dont like windows, but I cant use linux cause it wont play close to any of my games, and thats using wine, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a os that can handle Windows programs, but is not so limiting on how much of its specs you can use, or if someone can tell me where I can find a windows 7 that has been edited to be, well more open or more lightweight, im currently using windows 7 ultimate 64bit, I also have Linux Ubuntu 64bit on another HDD
 

Answer:Looking for an alternative OS

Most PC games are developed only for PC. Windows uses Direct X, while Linux uses Open GL. It is hard to develop for both platforms since the amount of users is much less and Open GL is less flexible/harder to code than Direct X. If you game, stay with Windows. Mac games are also very limited despite the OS being quite popular. OS X (Mac) also runs Open GL. Mac and Linux games are mainly PC/console ports.

Question: PSU alternative

Hello gang,
over the last year plus there has been more and more folks who are attempting to upgrade their machines with better graphics capability in response to the ever increasing demands of the new titles hitting the shelves monthly. Most of the time this requires an PSU upgrade as well. many times they will have a decent 400w-500w PSU that must be set aside to make way for a new 700w + PSU. If this scenario fits your situation, have a great alternative for you. About a year ago In researching my challenge to build a sub 1k machine that would run Crysis/Crysis Warhead on very high/ enthusiast settings, I added a third HD 4850 in CF and found myself in the same situation. I ended up purchasing the FSP Group BoosterX 5 and found it to be a terrific product. The X5 is a graphics dedicated PSU putting out 450w (500w max) and 40A on the 12v rails. This is exceptionally clean power as well with very low ripple which is extremely important, especially when doing something as intense as gaming. The AC ripple numbers at full load are 3.3v @ 25 (mV p-p) 5.0v @ 25 (mV p-p) 12v @ 40 mV p-p).
another advantage is that it balances the electrical load from your main PSU adding to the life expectancy of both PSU's. It also runs very cool and very quiet. and is rated at 85% efficiency. I have been using it for a year now to power 2 of my three 4850's and it has performed flawlessly. i have not seen a mention of this PSU on here in over a year, so wanted to let anyone who is ... Read more

Answer:PSU alternative

Looks like a good product red.
Got a couple of questions for you.
How cool does it run under full load? Most of the upgrades I do involve cases that have a max. of 4 x 5.25 bays usable-increasingly 2 of the bays are going to be taken up by a touch screen fan controller (the usual customer request) and an ODD- leaves one bay. Radiated heat of the unit likely to pose a problem? And is the exhaust likely to pose a problem for a front-to-back cooling case. Most of the mods I do these days involve roof mounted rads but I still have a few customers on the air cool variety.
Second. Cable management. The PCIe wouldn't be a problem -easily rewired for length if need be- but how long is the power cord (internal to PCI plate)? and how far from the plate is the choke? and is the diameter very thick?
Most of the builds I've done I've recommended (read strongarmed) full size chassis to the customer (ATCS 840, Lian Li's and some earlier build's with the Cosmos and Stacker 830's) so would need about 550mm (say 420mm straight-line distance+ 130mm for routing behind the mobo) - enough cable length for a tidy build ?
Cheers.

Please....Can some one please help me finding a best alternative for windowblinds. I am using windows 8.1 (64bit)

Answer:Best Alternative....

If you ask me, this is a bit like asking whether it's better to get kicked in the teeth with a steel toed boot or tap shoes. These programs tend to rely on undocumented functions which will tend to be broken by security updates and other things, making for a never-ending cat and mouse game. And when you think about it, how much time do you really spend looking at the controls on any given window? Do you ever look at them for more than 5 seconds? Yes, the flat look on Windows 8 is rather uninspiring, but it has the benefit of helping reduce the amount of memory your system is using (for something you'll barely even take notice of).

Programs like Windowblinds just drives up memory use, increases the load on the GPU, and could lead to stability problems because they rely on features that are undocumented because they're not intended for widespread use and may change at any time and without notice. You're better off seeing the back of such programs.

Question: AVG Alternative

Should I download the latest version, or an equivalent, or run Spybot and Malwarebytes every day?

TonyC
 

Answer:AVG Alternative

Spybot search and destroy are not anti virus software, so to have these in addition to having an anti virus is fine. I personally use Avast! Free edition and have done so for a long time with no problems. I used to use avg 7.5 which was a nice version which didn't hog resources.

I also stopped using spybot search and destroy a long time ago.

Hi all

I have decided to add an extra 4GB RAM to my pc and I bought some based on my motherboard which surprise surprise does not fit. Serves me right for ordering it away from home and not looking at what is already in it.

Anyway, I have now had a look and this is what I currently have:
Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5C 2 x 2GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory (1066MHz)

This appears to be no longer produced and the supposed newer equivalent is only 800MHz which is just plain wrong,

Does anyone know what RAM I can put in with the existing two chips to make it up to 4GB without putting a complete new set in. I have two spare slots which are a different colour to the two already in use but they have the same pin layout

Thanks for taking the time to read!

SJackson
 

Answer:Need alternative RAM

I'd just try to find some 1066 DDR2 and give that a shot. I'd say as long as you don't have an Asus or other horribly picky motherboard you will be able to get by with different brands. Most of the time they work fine.

Run memtest overnight the first day you get the RAM. If no errors are thrown by morning, you'll be fine.

Hi,my T61 does nothing when pressing the power switch (I mean really nothing, no single led lights up or beep).  I can switch it on when it is in the docking station with the switch on the docking station. Another way to switch it on is to shortly disconnect the AC power. The laptop switches to battery power and boots up (I have no idea why, but thats the way I work now). After this I can work on battery or on AC Power ... both work fine.  But the problem is when I do not have a Docking station or any AC power ... in this case I know no way to switch on the Laptop.On my PC I can use the Power on  by Keyboad with a Pwd  (or other USB devices) but in the T61 BIOS there seems not to be such an option .. any idea how I can switch on my Laptop without changing the keyboard ? thanks and regards Hermann Message Edited by ruckb on 02-03-2009 05:16 AMMessage Edited by ruckb on 02-04-2009 07:56 AM

Since buying this product, periodically, it fails and then I have to reinstall the Pro version. Because of the way they hassle you and make it hard to avoid paying for something I do not need, I have finally had enough and want to replace this program.

Probably however there is more to the issue than just swapping mb. Since this is a hp, your windows lic is valid only with the original hardware ie you change the mb and you need a new copy of windows.

It is not really cost effective to purchase a new windows lic for this old of a system.

Something like this board would probably work however you would have to do at least a little engineering since the front panel connectors are not going to just plug in; some wire splicing would probably be necessary.

Hi awergh,

By "ghost", do you mean clone, i.e. as in what Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image accomplish by cloning (i.e. make a copy of) a hard disk?

If so, then I know of two tools you might try out, both are freeware. I can confirm that the first one does work in DOS, and I do not know about the second, but it probably will.
* Clone hard disk (free)
PCI CloneMaxx: http://www.pcinspector.de/clone-maxx/uk/welcome.htm
HDClone: http://www.miray.de/download/sat.hdclone.html (free version can be downloaded)

I am not sure what you mean by "having good compression" with regard to "cloning" a hard disk as the image would be a sector copy of the disk, and would not in any way be compressed.

basically i want a FREEWARE prog that makes a list of what i see in windows explorer, including all the columns that i have checked. listmaker doesnt do this. thanks!
 

Answer:Listmaker alternative

anything? ill even consider non-freeware options if that is why no one responded
