Re: unchecky? Not working?

Kimsan
 

Just assumed I guess, because I’ve had unchecky for several moons, and it never let the toolbar and google chrome through the gates, but no harm done, as rumor has it chrome is not so bad. Lol.

You cannot rely on Unchecky to always work.  Unchecky can only uncheck boxes for promotional software in installers which it has been programmed to recognize.  So if the CCleaner installer as an example were modified even slightly, Unchecky might not be able to uncheck boxes responsible for the toolbars/promotional software until or unless it is updated to recognize the modified installer.

Hi,

 

I have unchecky installed. I thought it would not install toolbars and things of that nature.  I just came off of CCleaner.com, downloaded the latest version, and upon completion, google chrome and the google toolbar was present. Thoughts?

Dear all,
 
I followed the steps for creating system image for my Win10 OS.
I got a folder:
Windows backup image
on my External Drive.
I went to it and checked its properrties.
Here is what I found there:
 
WindowsImageBackup Properties
General Sharing Security Previous Versions Customize
WindowsImageBackup
Type: File folder
Location: F:\
Size: 0 bytes
Size on disk: 0 bytes
Contains: 0 Files, 1 Folders
Created: Today, August 17, 2016, 28 minutes ago
Attribut: Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)
Hidden Advanced...
OK Cancel Apply
 
 
As you see, its size is 0 bytes.
Is it okay?
Maybe it is hidden folder and I can not see it from Window
But I wish to be sure, that if something bad happens to my system, I will be able to use this windows backup image to get my c: DRIVE back – as it is now.
 
Thanks much for your respond.

Jeremy,
 
Carlos, sent here steps to create on Windows 10 OS, the system image.
And I did it, and created image only to my C: Drive – for my OS and the programs that I installed.
Again, when I go to the windows backup image that I created, on external drive, it has 0 bytes.
I hope that Carlos will make things clear.

I'm not quite sure which instructions you are referring to, so forgive me if I'm incorrect, but are you talking about making your image from within the talking PE? Either way, I'd lean more towards thinking that the folder that's supposed to contain the image is indeed empty, if it's showing a size of 0, etc. I've had issues creating folders on my external from within the PE, so it very well may be something weird going on, but I'd probably try and remake the image, just to be sure it has been created correctly.
I have a main directory on my external called windows-backup which contains sub-directories for each version of windows I make images for. When I want to make a new folder in my backup directory, rather than creating it from the PE, which normally results in an error, I create it instead from my running installation of windows and then point to that new folder when I create the image.
Once again, not sure if this is the method you are talking about using, so please forgive if it isn't. :)

Re: unchecky? Not working?

I haven't used the standard installer in quite some time so I have no answer for that one.  As for Unchecky being updated, it does not only support CCleaner and it has been updated many times if not necessarily frequently since it's initial release.  I did also provide two other possible solutions.

The problem with using the standard CCleaner installer is that JAWS cannot locate these check boxes, which is the reason for using Unchecky in the first place.  And what are the chances that the developers of Unchecky will keep updating it every time Puriform makes changes to the CCleaner interface?

Obama to forgive the student debt of permanently disabled people

[]


(istock)

The Obama administration plans to forgive $7.7 billion in federal student loans held by nearly
400,000 permanently disabled Americans.

By law, anyone with a severe disability is eligible to have the government discharge their federal student loans. The administration took steps four years ago to make the process easier by letting people who are totally and permanently disabled use their Social Security designation to apply for a discharge, but few took advantage.
The Department of Education is now taking it upon itself to identify eligible borrowers and guide them through the steps to discharge their loans.

“Too many eligible borrowers were falling through the cracks, unaware they were eligible for relief,” said Education Under Secretary Ted Mitchell in a statement. “Americans with disabilities have a right to student loan relief.
And we need to make it easier, not harder, for them to receive the benefits they are due.”

[Sidelined by disability and saddled with student loans]

Working with the Social Security Administration, the department has been identifying borrowers receiving disability payments and have the specific designation of “Medical Improvement Not Expected,” which indicates they are eligible for the discharge. The agencies found
387,000 matches in its first review. About
179,000 of those people are currently in default on their loans, putting them at risk of losing their tax refunds and having their Social Security benefits garnished.

“The creation of the matching program is a great first step, but the administration needs to go further to ensure that no borrower who has a right to student loan relief has their benefits taken,” said Persis Yu, the National Consumer Law Center’s student loan borrower assistance project director. “Borrowers receiving SSDI need these payments to survive.”

Grade Point newsletter

News and issues affecting higher education.

Starting next week, borrowers identified in the match will receive a letter from the government explaining the steps needed to receive a discharge. They will not be required to submit documentation of their eligibility, unlike disabled borrowers who apply for the discharge on their own. Notification letters will be sent over a 16-week period, and followed up with a second letter after 120 days.

The letters will inform borrowers of the tax implication of the discharge, since the government has the right to tax the amount of money forgiven.

Rising student debt looms over parents and children

Play Video2:52

Many middle class families borrow to build their careers and send their children to college, and now struggle to pay back growing student loan debt. A new AP analysis shows it's a rising multi-generational problem. (AP)

Tuesday’s announcement is an outgrowth of President Obama’s Student Aid Bill of Rights, which directed federal agencies to overhaul the way Americans repay student loans.

Win10PE images can be downloaded from the same page as the documentation
here.

I remember reading this readme before, thank you.
My question is how would I restore the image? This is after I have
moved it to an external hard drive. I look through my files and can't
seem to find the WinPe7 and 10PE files that you had created.
Would it matter which version I use? Ultimately I want to use the
image I made from before I upgraded to windows 10. I had windows 7 64
bit at the time. I'm hoping to at least get some instructions down so
that I can walk someone through it, like I've had to do with other
computer issues. If things go awesome for me I will be able to get
help from someone who knows what they are doing and I won't have to
worry too much about it.

thanks a lot Carlos
Melissa

You don't have to burn the image to DVDs. You can just copy it to

for

booting into WinPE, I don't think I can tell you anything which will
make
the procedure much easier, but you can read all about WinPE and the
methods

for booting with it in the documentation here.

The ReadMe file covers just about everything I've ever said about WinPE.

It figures that it wouldn't be that easy--for me at least. I have the
image, but it is on a partition on my hard drive, the same one that
windows is installed on.
I'm guessing that I will have to burn it onto a cd/dvd in order to use
it. The instructions I looked up for booting into WinPE sound too
complicated to me so I might have to find someone who can do it all
for me because right now I'm feeling really freaking stupid and
frustrated all to hell.
I can't seem to remember how to do it, I dimly recall you explaining
it to someone but I can't remember what to use for the search on the
IO page since I failed to save the information.

Lucky me I have backups of everything, but I can't use them. :P

For the sake of clarification. The purpose of the mount image feature

is

so
that you can retrieve specific files and folders from the image, not
to
restore the entire image.

It is not a pipe dream. As Gene says, either image will restore
your
system to the exact state it was in when you created that image. That
is
after all the point of images. However, it is not enough to simply
mount
the image. The entire drive/partition must be overwritten so you must
boot
into another environment like WinPE to restore the image.

It will restore your computer to exactly how it was when you made
the
image. If it worked properly then, it will work properly after you
restore
from the image.

and you will be able to revert to Windows 7 if you wish and if
thirty
days haven't past since you initially upgraded.

I couldn't get my computer to work right with certain programs
that
somehow needed my other account, which I had made an admin
account,
to
run them. I got fed up and went to reset windows and keep my data.

I
was a complete dumbass and hit reset even though there was a
warning
about how I would not be able to rollback to windows 7 if I did
that.
So I have some issues, though I am only listing 3 of the main
ones.

1. So, now my system sounds don't work at all. What I mean is the
asterisk sound, and the other sounds you hear like when navigating

a
program or website or even when the UAC window pops up. The only
sounds I hear are the windows start up and down sounds and the
default
windows notification sound. I went through sound settings, where
you
can change themes etc, but I couldn't find the path to the old
sounds.
I tried to google the answer myself, but couldn't find crap about
it.
2. Since I reset I had to reinstall programs and one that won't
install is the latest version of iTunes, it gives me an error and
I
had tried to install older versions of the program but no go. I
remember hearing something about 32 bit, but my computer is 64 bit
and
I made sure to download that version.
3. I attempted to download MS Office 2007, which I have a key for,
and
when I go to verify it says the key is either not valid or the
program
it is for is not supported ... I went to the page to download 2007
so
I have no clue why it is doing that. I think I will try and call
microsoft accessibility about that or download the basic, non pay
editions of word and excel.

I guess what I am mainly whining about is I made a disk image with
Active@ disk image of my computer right after I upgraded. Would
that
image put everything back to how it was before I fucked everything
up?
I know that is a [pipe dream but a girl can wish. When I went to
run
active@ I chose mount image but itdidn't tell me anything so I
figured
I needed a sighted person to do it. Do I or is there a step I am
missing to mount the image I have?
On a side note, I have an image of before I upgraded to 10, when I
still had 7, would that magically fix stuff back to before
everything
screwed up? lol

This would all be a lot easier if I could fly someone like Carlos
to
come fix my shit. I don't have anyone, that I know of, well versed
in
computer stuff.

kk, I'm done ranting and crying. When my mom and sister come home
they
will have no sympathy for me since they are computer dumb and
would
have no idea of what I am saying.

god I wish I had alcohol or something in this house
