Hello Maxx and Else,

A basic question missing in the conversation so far is: Has the built-in pop-up blockin function in Google Chrome being turned off?

1. Click the Customize and control Google Chrome menu (the three horizontal bars in the upper right corner)
 2. Select Settings.
  3. At the bottom,  click  "Advanced Settings"... .
  4.  Under Privacy, click "Content Settings".
  5. Make sure the box "Pop-ups and Redirects Blocked" is checked.

Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages

Gene
 

What sort of message and where?  An e-mail message?  What does it tell you to do?  Without more information this sounds like classic phishing.  Microsoft isn't going to monitor how many millions of e-mail programs and let users know if something is incorrectly set.

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything wouldn't  open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them till they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup  programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a business server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time, windows put up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed, not a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.

The malicious ad, from what3eever adware is on your machine, is trying to get you to go to a page that looks like a Microsoft page and give personal information.  Microsoft never sends messages to people about their e-mail or their programs or telling you that your computer is infected or any such messages.

Well for example Ccleaner portable seems to be able to put up a pane randomly now advertising itself as on special offer. Looking at the .ini file you need to stop any vestiges of it running at start up. You only need to have run it once and it will insert itself silently, but as I say it can be disabled.
I do not blame companies for doing this but the problem for us is often that the splash screens are apparently blank being mainly pictures.
Its by no means the only bit of software I've found like this.

I'm still wondering though what your original issue was with apparently missing files or the display of them on his machine.
I notice that superantispyware the free version is now able to spot things inserting themselves as 'invisible' start up items, and stop them from doing it. Its a lot easier than using autoruns to look for strings in the start up registry entries.

That's more evidence supporting the possibility of adware. I don't
know if ad blockers block ads from adware but I think you should
investigate further. Other list members will likely discuss other

Re: Another problem.

 

For me my issue with google popups is a bit the other way.

I can not get access to my local ird because of google popup blocker.

Idealy the site is supposed to alert chrome if it wants something then I can allow it but its not doing that.

I manually tried to enter in the domain to the allow box but it won't do that.

That is it will enter in but the site still errors out saying I have popups on.

The only way to fix this is turn off all add blockers, on chrome, popups, and security settings.

The popup will trigger a download of a pdf for printing thats all it is.

So every time I need to access that site I have to turn off security even my antimalware etc and expose the pc to all sorts of stuff while I do my business then turn it back on.

Either the site is not playing by the rules or I am not using the ggoogle security system properly but I am sure I have the data in the right fields so what gives.

My home page is a file on my own computer that is my favorites.  I originally did it with MS internet explorer.  It has an export function.  If newer browsers have that function you can export your favorites to a file and then make that your home page.  I have kept MS IE on my desktop so I can update that file.  Edge, Chrome, and Firefox can read it.  As far as I know they can’t wright it.

You said once before that that is the only browser that happens in.  What home page are you using?  Do you have Chrome to only show the home page or to show other pages? 

 

Also, you didn't say whether you see popups on other sites that you don't see when using other browsers.  I suspect Chrome has some sort of adware.

Hello Maxx and Else,

A basic question missing in the conversation so far is: Has the built-in pop-up blockin function in Google Chrome being turned off?

1. Click the Customize and control Google Chrome menu (the three horizontal bars in the upper right corner)
 2. Select Settings.
  3. At the bottom,  click  "Advanced Settings"... .
  4.  Under Privacy, click "Content Settings".
  5. Make sure the box "Pop-ups and Redirects Blocked" is checked.

Hi all.

For those that subscribe via email to cleaner news they have a servey with the latest version update and I strongly recomend you take it.

I have completed it with the issues of. 1.  accessibility to all features, quickclean, and interface issues.

and 2.  the fact that some settings can not be got to and that some settings if changed are not honored at all and reverted like quickclean stuff.

Why they choose to do this now is beyond me but they are doing it so.

NVDA and Word 2016

Don H
 

Running NVDA 2018-4 beta 2 on a win 10 computer and using Word 2016.
I am finding the use of the ribbon menues very workable. However one little annoying issue I am having is the repeat of entries in the menu.
For example if I go to the file menu and arrow down the entries it will say everything twice. It will say open open or save save etc. Is there some setting to fix this issue?


Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages

 

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything wouldn't  open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them till they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup  programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a business server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time, windows put up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed, not a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.

In Windows 7, sometimes in the tray icons is one saying you have one message, basically some kind of problem report. I seldom seem to notice it till then, so one might be forgiven for thinking that invoking the context menu and selecting the open for the  centre might just give a clue to what it is.
However normally this opens a screen with things like troubleshooting, security, maintenance etc, and seems to have no obvious way to simply view that message.
Am I missing something obvious?
So if there is a quick way to just  get to that message wherever it is and read it it would be great. It normally tends to be something like Backup issues or some odd  crash of explorer or some such, but one can never find the actual text until you accidentally resolve it  by guesswork and then you can see it in the old archive. Its a bit pointless then!

I have never seen a popup since I started using chrome paired with UBlock origin.

Anyone who thinks their data is 100% safe is deceiving themselves. You can try to make it so, but things get out eventually. I'd rather use google over facebook any day, though.


Mozilla used to be really nice. Now I have no idea what they've went and done but my experience is rarely good.

You said once before that that is the only browser that happens in.  What home page are you using?  Do you have Chrome to only show the home page or to show other pages?

Also, you didn't say whether you see popups on other sites that you don't see when using other browsers.  I suspect Chrome has some sort of adware.

Re: Another problem.

 

Well you can turn this off but it will turn itself back on quickclean to.

There is another update which includes updates settings that people should check right now they are all on and there is no new modified ini file or a reason to update the current one.

It also states for home use.

To be fair, and this is the reason I still use it, bar the interface, and the addvertisments and the like, its only ever done that for itself, no spyware as far as I know bar google and google is everywhere, and avast, which sucks but they are owned by them so I guess they have to.

Take all that out of the way, they could have restricted the program a lot more than they can.

The only thing you don't have is full background automatic control, and you used to have update but aparently the program will automatically update itself to for home users, it also states for home users only which is a bit of a mouthfull but at least its being clear about it now.

That's more evidence supporting the possibility of adware.  I don't know if ad blockers block ads from adware but I think you should investigate further.  Other list members will likely discuss other programs to run to see if you have adware.  I haven't used enough to discuss the subject much.

What do the pop-ups say, and what site are you on?
