Maybe I’m being stupid, but I’m finding it difficult to sign up for a premium plan.

I use pCloud!

I like it a lot, and you get five gig of free cloud storage!

When you install the app, it puts a drive in your list of drives in This PC

Go to that drive, and just paste what you want in there, and it will upload to the online pCloud page!

I use it on the computer and my phone!

Re: so 32 or 64

Programs 86 or whatever you said, there it is.

That equals the 64 bit system?

I'm writing this down. In fact, I'll change some of my desktop settings to  the name of the thing with a64 after it.

I thank you so much; as I want to use the anyburn program, and just didn't know which to engage.

Thanks so much.

Re: Low-Cost Braille Displays

Josh Kennedy
 

Well if I were forced to choose as of right now I would choose the orbit reader20. That is because it has jaws support and it does not depend on an addon to make it work with NVDA. But I really really wish they will fix the small bugs and issues I have with the braille me, with firmware fixes or updates because when and if they do that, the braille me will then be my preferred display! But as of now I prefer the orbit because its firmware and screen reader support are more developed overall.

Re: win 7 mystery message

No, nvda announces there is an update available and gives a “remind me later” option. Nvda does not say “click here, help balloon.”

This started weeks before the new nvda wa released.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Re: deleting scan results in malware bytes

I should point out that unchecky is a utility that limits your exposure to potentially unwanted programs.  The way I worded my previous message may imply that unchecky increases your exposure.

What are you doing that exposes you to that level of unwanted programs?  Do you have any ideas?  Are you downloading a lot of programs that are free?  Are you running Unchecky? 
Whatever the case, that is as important to discuss as how to get Malware Bytes to remove them.

Hi all,

I'm running the paid version of malware bytes 4.0.4 and the latest scan
found 24 problems in the form of possibly unwanted programs. How do I
quarentine them? As I tab through there's a checkbox for each that the
latest jaws 2019 identifies, do I have to go through and check each one
individually before a quarentine button shows? Btw I'm running windows
10, I think version 1809.

Thanks.

Re: deleting scan results in malware bytes

I have no idea. I need to see if I have unchecky installed, I know I've used it before but maybe that was on my previous laptop. I need to see if it's installed on this one.
