So what real good does this do as when you’re in able it it will start the update process again and might update things you don’t want as unless in W10 has changed you cannot do like in W7 and pick your updates to download and install. Even with the pro edition.

Hi All, Sorry I had to correct a typo in the subject line.

 

I heard about this program & decided to check it out & run it.    It's pretty simple & straight forward.  After you start the program use your Jaws cursor to read the information & to find the Disable, Enable, & Exit buttons.  If you disable the Windows 10 updating, you can always use this same tool to enable the updating process again.  Information & download link is below.

Never 10 is an easy to use utility which gives users control over
whether their Windows 7 or 8.1 will upgrade itself to Windows 10.

 

The name “Never 10” is a bit of an overstatement, since this utility may also be used to easily re-enable Windows operating system automatic upgrading.
But the primary reason for using this is to disable Windows' pestering insistence upon upgrading Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.

 

Many users of Windows 7 and 8.1 are happy with their current version of Windows, and have no wish to upgrade to Windows 10. There are many reasons for
this, but among them is the fact that Windows 10 has become controversial due to Microsoft's evolution of their Windows operating system platform into
a service which, among other things, aggressively monitors and reports on its users activities. This alone makes many users uncomfortable enough to cause
them to choose to wait. In line with this, a few months into 2016, Windows 10 started displaying unsolicited advertisements on its users' desktops. Others
dislike the changes Microsoft made by merging their failed “tiled” smartphone user-interface into the Windows UI. And, finally, some object to being force-fed
whatever Microsoft wants and simply wish to choose for themselves.

 

In July of 2015, responding to the significant user backlash, Microsoft added features to its Windows Update facility which allow it to be configured,
on a machine-by-machine basis, to not forcibly upgrade qualifying Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems to Windows 10. However, Microsoft did not make this
configuration simple. It requires the use of the group policy editor (which is not present in some qualifying systems) and/or the system registry. In other
words, they created some deep internal configuration options but chose not to provide a simple user-interface to give their users the choice. “Never10”
provides that choice.

 

The elegance of this “Never 10” utility, is that it does not
install ANY software of its own. It simply and quickly
performs the required system editing for its user.

 

If the system being configured has a version of Windows Update which is older than the required July 2015 release—which would mean that the required “upgrade
disable” options are not yet present—this utility will notify its user (see the sample display screens above) and offer to download and install the required
update to Windows Update so that Windows can then be configured not to upgrade itself to Windows 10.

 

Since this utility simply updates and/or configures the system to prevent or allow,
OS upgrading, it may be deleted after it has configured the system appropriately.

 

Using this utility, inexperienced users will be able to easily use Never10 themselves, while advanced users will likely appreciate that fact that no additional
software is installed and will be able to refer friends and family, whom they support, to this easy-to-use utility.

Yes, there are several in the App Store. Some are free and some
cost, you can spend just about any amount that you wish. None of
these apps are reliable that I have found, and some of them use
names for colors that do not mean anything that you could relate to one specific color.
Not your basic red, blue or green, or even shades of such colors. I
have heard that the Colorino Color Identifier does a pretty good
job, but this is a separate device which would have to be purchased.
Not sure of the price, over $100 however. The best apps for this
sort of thing are ones like Be My Eyes, Cam Find, or Tap Tap See
where someone either connected to you or working remotely identifies
the color as well as what an object is for you. Be My Eyes actually
connects you to a volunteer person who you can ask specific

Like Sugar says, pressing the, F2 key, while you have a file or folder highlighted will open an edit field allowing you to rename a file or folder.  If you press, Control, Shift, + N, this keystroke will open a new folder named, New Folder, so just type the name you wish to title this new folder with, & press enter.
Take care.

Re: zone alarm firewall and jaws

Gene
 

I haven't seen it discussed in years.  I don't know if it was somewhat accessible years ago but I think I saw complaints about it not being nearly as accessible as those using it wanted it to be back then.  But the first question might be whether you actually need another software firewall.  Most modem/routers people use these days have hardware firewalls and Windows has a firewall as well.

Re: Audio in safe mode

Yes, you can try this registry patch
https://iqu.ca/1/?6ABD934EBFC4
with a couple of caveats. It may only work with Realtek audio chipsets and
even without using this patch it may work anyway with basic USB audio
devices. Flash drives should be recognized as usual even in "Safe Mode".

Franklin, to lock the keypad on the first gen Stream, press and hold the star key until it says, "locked". To unlock it, press keys 1, 2, 3, one at a time and it will say "unlocked".

Hi all, does anyone know on a first generation VR Stream if there is a means of locking the keypad?

Thanks

 


zone alarm firewall and jaws

Byron Stephens
 

I don't know if anyone's successfully used the zone alarm firewall with jaws effectively, because I'm forced to hunt down a better one than the sunbelt one I'm currently using. I'm wondering for anyone who's ever used that firewall just how well it plays with jaws or NVDA.

Hi Allen,
The problem isn't that your replies are not showing. The problem is that perhaps unintentionally, you are posting at the bottom of previous replies so it appears to other readers as if your response is blank unless they scroll down to the bottom of the message.

Yes, there are several in the App Store. Some are free and some cost,
you can spend just about any amount that you wish. None of these apps
are reliable that I have found, and some of them use names for colors
that do not mean anything that you could relate to one specific color.
Not your basic red, blue or green, or even shades of such colors. I
have heard that the Colorino Color Identifier does a pretty good job,
but this is a separate device which would have to be purchased. Not
sure of the price, over $100 however. The best apps for this sort of
thing are ones like Be My Eyes, Cam Find, or Tap Tap See where someone
either connected to you or working remotely identifies the color as
well as what an object is for you. Be My Eyes actually connects you to
a volunteer person who you can ask specific questions to since you are
talking to each other in real time..

Again, if you know the file is safe, then the file isn't the issue.  As I explained, Send space shows you third party advertising.  It contracts with other entities to display advertising on the Send Space site when you download a file as a free user.  and that is what is being flagged.  If you know the file is safe, then it has nothing to do with the file.  You can know the file is safe and still be infected from hacked third party advertising.

Yes but now you know you are opening yourself up a little more for unsafe downloads and sites! It is usually better to just tell it to continue on and leave it on then turn it off. Although you can turn it on and off at will.

You are probably using Send Space.  Assuming the file is safe, it is not blocking the file.  It is blocking third party advertising from Send Space.  Send Space is trying to show you advertising from a third party site.  While advertising may be dangerous at times even on the most reputable sites because it may be hacked, Send Space is knowwn for hacked third party advertising that may try to download malware or send you to something like a phishing site.

 

I've sent instructions for how to download safely from Send space before, but I don't know if I did to this list.  I don't know how many people implemented the instructions I sent successfully.  The instructions require many steps and one or two people had problems implementing them.  I'll send instructions if you want to try doing so.  There is a way to bypass the block you are discussing but I don't use Internet Explorer and I don't know it.  I strongly do not believe that blocks of this kind should be overridden.  They are security features and, while nothing dangerous may happen, I consider it a bad idea to evade them.  My instructions will keep Send Space from directing you to such sites and you can download files safely.
