hi,

linkedin automaticly sends out these messages. I assure you that these people probably did not send these out on purpose.

Re: Alert

 

The alert is asking me to download their so-called advanced password
management. I did alt+a and accessed the mesage and closed it. Let's
see if it comes back again. Thank you all for your responses.

Subject: [nvda] Alert


Hello everyone,
Recently I began receiving an alert saying my identity is at riesk and
that I should download an advanced password management to safeguard my
identity. With Internet Explorer I used to do alt+n to deal with such
notifications. but with Firefox I have no idea.
I use Windows 10 with Firefox and NVDA.
Has any of you received such alerts recently and if you have
how did you deal with it?
Your response will be appreciated.

vocalizer with nvda — is it still alive?

mrdin8877@...
 

hi, 
does nvda uses vocalizer 2 point 2 or still version 1? and if it is still in version 1, will the synthesizer be updated? last i check at the vocalizer-nvda dot com, it was copyright 2013.  3 years had past since then. also, i don't like the codefactory version because, it will take quite sometime for nvda to launch because it is checking for the licencing or something on the internet. and, the codefactory doesn't has compact voices i think. sorry if this has been asked and thanks!.

I have investigated these and some from Twitter as well, and on looking at headers they seem to not be from where they say they are. In fact i suspect some bot has harvested some names and email addresses and has used them to create these messages. Because
I have not tried any links incase they are infected fake web sites. I have blocked the name linked in in all its guises.

Ignore it. I get such invitations from time to time. Linked In may do something like look at a new member's address book when they subscribe. Or if they don't, and the person has asked you to join, just ignore it. All it means is that they got your address from your list mail and asked you to join. they may not even know it is occurring if Linked In does this with new members. The Internet world is full of such nonsense. Just ignore all such messages. Don't respond in any way. It's a waste of time.

cloning hard drive

Richard Kuzma
 

Good evening,

I had the same exact problem as you do.

I used image for windows,

You can download a thirty day trial.

Here is the problem,

You have to be EXTREMELY careful.

First I did a backup image as was with the existing drive and verified it was good.

Then, I shrunk the partition – cant remember how I did that,

But when I did it the paritition crashed at one point.

But, I had the backup.

Then once the partition was smaller I was able to back it up and restore it to the new drive with no problem at all.

The trick is going to be shrinking the partition,

You gotta be careful not to destroy it in the process, as idid something wrong.

In the end, all worked out well.

Let me know if you need any more help

Rich

cloning hard drives with NVDA

Josh Kennedy
 

I just got a new computer. I installed macrium reflect. NVDA, and the OCR addon. I have a 240gig regular hard drive in this laptop. The drive only has about 25gb of stuff including the operating system. When I try cloning the larger 250gig drive to the smaller 120gig ssd it says not enough space. How do I fix this? Or will I just have to put in the new ssd and do a clean install?

Re: Alert

Gene
 

If a specific program was mentioned, it was not made clear in the message.  I don't know if there is a program named advanced password management.  It is not made clear that that was a specific name.  Also, it isn't clear whether the person tried to follow a download link in the popup message. 
 
And if there were such a link, I'd probably go to the actual program site itself if I wanted to download it.  We don't know if the advertisement is legitimate or a way to get someone to place malware on their machine. 
 
And I would also read reviews, as you imply, of the product before doing anything.

little.

Re: Off Topic: Requests to join Linked In networks from list members

 

Those are automatic messages there are optout links at the end of those to stop them.
Also These social networks send out messages about people you know and auto send requests so do spam networks.

Re: Alert

Roger Stewart
 

Sounds very suspicious to me! Don't do it! If I get a dialogue box in Firefox, I can tab to the buttons and there's usually a Yes and a No and sometimes a Cancel there and often the alt n will key the no button as well. Also, put in a good anti virus/anti spy ware on your system. I've never received any such notices and I use Firefox all the time.
