    New Microsoft Teams is twice as fast, available for all in June

    Perhaps one of the best tools ever to emerge from Microsoft gets better. Read about it here: Thanks to Sergiu Gatlan @ B.C. for the article. Props to M/S for coming up with a cross platform tool that communicates using just about every method possible, an integration with Microsoft Office and...

    Another Newbie saying Hi!!

    Welcome Piper. At this point I am just guessing but it seems if you have had any other Adobe product previously installed, free or cracked it leaves some leftovers that affect Acrobat and Photoshop as well as illustrator cracks. I wish Ihad the time to reverse engineer those programs but most of...

    Think so huh? This was Windows 11 and I did all the registry disable stuff, the GUI. Microsoft has cemented Defender into Windows 11, no way to remove it. It acts like you disabled it and will let a lot of stuff in, but KMSpico, no way Jose. I didn't try loading up a 3rd party A/V and that may...

    Weather from Microsoft Start named the most accurate global forecast provider

    Gotta wonder exactly what they mean by "observational datasets" and the 1.4 billion Windows boxes worldwide. It's already been revealed that other sources are actively harvesting data for purposes unknown to the end users, Tik Tok for example. I am not one of those conspiracy nuts but it's...

    Should I Pull The Trigger On This Deal?

    Minisforum is offering a pretty good deal on a 12 gen i7 for a decent price. I definitely go bare bones and either pick up good deals or raid the junk box as required. Minisforum NAB6 $359 is a very temping price. To be honest I haven't had to purchase a system in 20 years, one of the perks of...

    You have to be very careful with KMS activator lately. Microsoft has declared war on KMS with the help of Defender. I used it a few days ago and it was quite a fight, see my post here: https://thewindowsforum.com/threads/windows-defender-way-out-of-hand.86122/ It was almost impossible for me to...

    Microsoft pushes OOB security updates for Windows Snipping tool flaw

    Good assessment of the flaw, many thanks to Lawrence Abrams @ B.C. Read about it HERE: For those of you in a hurry for the fix: To install the security updates, open the Microsoft Store and go to Library > Get Updates, and the latest version of the Windows Snipping Tool will be automatically...

    Weather from Microsoft Start named the most accurate global forecast provider

    I honestly don't know what to say. I thought Microsoft was a software developer and publisher. Do they own world-wide telemetry to collect related to weather. Weather forecasting is no more than statistical analysis of past data and past outcomes and how it correlates to current conditions. The...

    Get apps from Microsoft Store on your Windows PC - Microsoft Support

    It's bizarre that Microsoft has even considered getting into the store game so late in the show. I take it they vet the applications they dole out which is a plus but on the other hand look at how blind trust was betrayed by the Google Play store or how it was used to extort software companies...

    Windows Defender Way Out of Hand!

    Holy crap! I just tried to download and install KMSPico and WTF? First I thought I disabled Defender thru the GUI but somehow it magically turned itself back on. When I tried to disable it again, Defender informed me I didn't have Admin rights? Huh yes I do, I own the darn computer and set it...

    Help needed: with Illustrator 2023

    Try renaming the install folder to maybe 1 word instead of the huge folder name you get when you do a straight RAR decompression. Make sure all the sub-folders of the main install file program don't have incredible long names. Finally I always do installs like this out of the root directory...

    What Disk Clone Program to Use 2023

    I guess the biggest problem for me is it has been impossible to do a live direct clone NVMe -> NVMe. I forgot I did have a a USB adaptor for NVMe so I will mess around and see what's possible. Prices for NVMe are being discounted 50% for all but the top performing gaming drives, it's too temping...

    What Disk Clone Program to Use 2023

    Just curious. With the advent of SSD and it's various speeds and SATA no longer the bus of choice, what program have you successfully used to clone your "C" drive or what ever drive designation you use for your boot to operating system drive. I did a clone with Acronis from a 512MB SSD to a 2TB...

    TechSmith Camtasia Studio 9.0.4 Build 1948

    Welcome to the world of pirate programs! It works doesn't it? I imagine there is a registry value that would stop that however looks like nobody wasted their time messing with it. It does work.

    Wondershare Help!

    Those are transcoding programs. That's why they are so fast. I will admit I am a real snob when it comes to video processing. I would have to write a long article about one vs the other. A quick answer would be transcoding a video usually results in a loss of quality for a variety of reasons...

    Microsoft office install problems

    Willie mano a mano you aren't running Win 10 32 bit are you? If that's the case you are going to run into untold problems with programs with 64 bit cracks that just may do whacked things that generate errors like you are encountering. I am hoping that's not the case so let's go on. All I can...

    Wondershare Help!

    You might want to consider trying a much newer version of the program. That's an antique. Current versions are in the 14.xxx range now. I am not going to bother checking but that program may or may not be compatible with Win 10 or newer. There were some major changes to video processing since...
