it's 180 days so not sure where other poster got his 365

I'm not sure, but it might be renewing a previous one year activation, I can't remember how long my last free trial offer was for?

Pro found a lot more registry errors - like 2500 more! - let's hope it doesn't mess up my system. I read a few horror stories in the reviews so I'm not letting rip with all the ASC tools in the toolbox.
I have used it for years with no problems, however ASC went a bit weird on me recently. I noticed it was taking longer than normal cleaning junk files. I then noticed it was deleting documents, music, and other files I needed. I quickly stopped ASC and restarted and found loads of my stuff had gone. Luckily I had a back up so restored.
I still think it's a great program and continue to use it, but now watch it carefully.

That's your opinion, not mine. Now that I have got rid of the SharewareOnSale crap, my system is clean and MS Defender suits me fine.

What file type does the word processor output? The last freeware office I used output stuff in some weird file type that I had to convert to pdf if I wanted the files to be accessed by people - a massive pain.

This Product is not MS Office obviously, so it has its own priority/default 'File Extensions' per individual 'Item' (as could be expected?).

BUT, saying all that, it also output's to alllll the most common/more universally known .Doc, .Docx, .Xls, .Xlsx File Formats, etc?, so .....

I personally haven't used this particular Office Package, so I can't swear to it 100%?.

But I HAVE used 'similar' one's to the above however?, eg. Kingsoft Office/WPS (both the free one + paid for Commercial one - different versions of both flavours, etc, hehe), Open Office, Libre Office + 1 or 2 other's beside (on Windows Devices that is), and Polaris Office, OOA Office, Kingsoft Office/WPS + others I can't remember again?, hehe (on Android Devices), and didn't have problems in either seeing, OR outputting to a .Doc File Format, etc?).

I don't make use of my lot's extensively as I'd like too either? (but who cares really?, lol, it's at least there for when I do ..... )

Play with them a bit, have a look again, etc?. :-)

That so-called re-post is almost 2 month's old? (that's hardly what I'd deem a 're-post'?).
At least the other deal is a clean link direct to the source of the offer and not to some third party site that harvests your emails and wants to install crapware on your computer to get the same result.
Exactly the same with your Google Nik post.
Fair enough?.
But in hindsight then, similar could also be said of any and all previous current and future SharewareOnSale Deals on here then really? (I personally have cone across a few last year upon HUKD + at least a handful so far for this year alone ... and many have made good use of the various 'stuffs' regardless?).
So kinda depends on your angle ..... :-)

My stance on Sharewareonsale is this (yours may differ):

If it's their own giveaway which they have sourced themselves (like THIS one), they are free to present and package it how they choose. I still don't like the email harvesting and crapware they try and get you to install, but I fully accept it's their giveaway to do with as they choose.

If the giveaway doesn't belong to SoS and has been lifted from somewhere else then packaged to look like it belongs to them, they have no right to harvest emails and ask you to install their crapware. They should be open and link to who actually has done the work to bring the giveaway to everyone without you having to register or give over emails to SoS.

The two giveaways I mentioned you posted belong in the second category. I'm not moaning at you but feel quite strongly about the shady tactics of SoS and their flagrant disregard for respecting the work of others. :(

This one is just dressed up by Sharewareonsale to make it look like the offer it belongs to them, which it most certainly doesn't.

I've tried various non-M$ office suites that promise compatability with .docx, pptx, etc files and there's always some formatting issues.
That's why I never accept/send .docx files from/to anyone, and stick to Libre/Open Office.

Good point, and in part I agree too, lol.

To therefore combat similar 'technical issues' (like that of your own, etc?), I tend to therefore stick to the more 'generic' Doc, Ppt, Xls type File Extension's only instead ..... File Extension types of which ANY Office Package will/can open them, regardless of it's originating 'source' (be they originally created via Microsoft, or otherwise?). :-)

It says "Sale Has Ended" and only downloaded the free version when I tried - I guess it's expired.
Funny you should say that, this too is one I'd previously stumbled upon, and the first thing it done after adding a video was crash - and then be stuck in an endless loop of crashing upon loading, which I figured was due to it trying to reload the previous 'project' which gave it the initial problem.
Was about a month ago now though, so hopefully this has fixed whatever that issue was.
Tried numerous free editors ... all seemed to crash/have issues.Stumbled across the free version of this - actually worked without issues, amazingly. Adobe may be better, but can't argue with free. Good submission. :)

Can anyone please advice me if this could let me play blu-ray on my laptop. After updating to windows 10 my laptops blu-ray drive is not playing or recognising the discs. Instead asking me buy a new software again. Thanking You in advance.
I recently came across http://www.leawo.com blu-ray player. Was very dubious about it but it seems to play all the discs I throw at it. Only downside I've found is that it displays 3D films in 2D as they don't have that function yet, but it's free, and can play the latest star-wars movie, which my Totalmedia 6 can't.

Well , shareware have got me email address but i have still not recieved any licence despite following instructions. From my point of view its been another scam.
i don't like vpn software that vendors give, you never know what it is doing in the background.

is it possible to get the openvpn settings for the servers so you can use your own software?
oadbyboy
This interested me until I read the feedbacks on it . Seems CyberGhost is a better VPN , although it cost a bit to get that .
I think www,sharewareonsale.com is good for some things so I tend to be selective with their offer . Ashraf is doing a good job IMHO .
I'd have respect for the guy if he stuck to offering his own stuff and didn't keep ripping off the work of others. The Assassin's Creed 3 "giveaway" the other day was the classic example, then there's this one. I don't really like giveaway of the day but at least the stuff they have is all their own work, they deserve credit for that.

As usual, SharewareonSale are just ripping off someone else's work, this time the Chip Magazine advent calendar. Use the real link:https://www.okayfreedom.com/specials/chipadvent16/of?
The site that the link takes you to is in German, however it translates to "welcome chip magazine reader, enter your email and we'll send you the premium code". The tick box is to sign up to their (openfreedom) newsletter.
I've just gotten it off the chip magazine advent calendar and haven't been asked to subscribe to anything.
anyway, since it's only a year then i'm not interested. i already have a VPN deal with someone and i thought this might be handy as a backup.
This is the Chip Magazine Advent Calendar offer for the 22nd (bottom middle), click through and then on the red "Hersteller-Seite" link, it'll take you to the same link I provided above.
Oh, for anyone trying to use this, download the software from the main homepage and not the link in the email as that link usually contains a version with ads.

The only bits of software i've found useful from that calendar so far are the full version of Alcohol 120% and the SSD Fresh program that optimises and checks your SSD.

The Advanced SystemCare Pro program would have been useful but it was apparently only a one year licence.

Not sure why this is hot when it's just exploiting the Ubisoft offer?

Sadly that site does the same thing all the time, and some people seem to think it's great. Personally I think they're scumbags the way they exploit the work of others...

Personally, this site should not be allowed to be advertised on here. You don't know what that download file contains, also you enter your Uplay info don't you? Wouldn't touch it with a pole.
They make you fill a form to send a download link but in this case, there's no download link or key. It's directions on how to download AC3 on Uplay.
I guess in this case its fine, but with a site name like that...
It's just pointless to go through this cause it's not something they're offering exclusively.

A new way to mess up an already messed up Registry. Just do a total clean install (with all the apps you use and necessary drivers). Then clone that hard drive. Yep, make an exact copy onto an external or internally fitted HDD or SSD. If the HDD is large enough create two partitions first. Use the OS free partition for saving files to or building up a music or games library. That way all your important docs are saved off the boot disk. Every six months to a year wipe the system et al from the HDD. Copy your cloned drive to the now clean, fresh, uncorrupted HDD. Update any divers and off you go again. A sweet smelling PC speedily doing its thing without a trashed registry.
This procedure is effortless via a Mac-Windows BootCamp install (takes a total of 10 minutes to swap the OS from old to new) and it is better than using any of the myriad miracle-fix-it applications available for Windows repairs. The Registry has to be the stupidest OS backbone of any modern OS. Like a wobbly stack of jack-straws it is constantly in a state of near collapse.
Do you have a dummies guide for a novice like me, I have a Lenovo 555 laptop that I have installed Windows 10 earlier this year and have had no end of bug's since installing Windows 10. Thanks

Without knowing the particular issues you are having or how you installed Windows 10 (i.e. was a clean install or upgrade) it'd difficult to suggest the best course of action. Assuming you don't have lots of applications installed on your laptop the best method I would suggest is to use the 'Reset this PC' option you have available to you in Windows 10.

Type 'Reset this PC' in the search box. It will give you a link to System Settings and the Reset this PC option. You then have a choice to 'Remove everything' or 'Keep my files'. I had an ongoing problem with one of my kids laptops, slow boot times, sometimes it wouldn't boot at all, general laggy performance etc. All they had installed on the machine was Windows 10 O/S, Office and some homework documents .

I took a copy of their homework files and chose the 'Remove everything' option and reinstalled Windows 10 - I would suggest if/when you reinstall you don't go with the Recommended settings you are presented with, instead click on the Custom Settings and change all the default settings from those that send your browsing etc information to Microsoft.

Once done, I would back up your new clean C:/ drive to an external hard drive. If you encounter issues again you can use this to restore.

Then re-install your applications i.e. Office etc. You could wait and back up your drive after you've added these, I prefer not to.

WinUtilities may not be a good choice for a novice. If you didn't want to go down this resetting Windows 10 route you could try a couple of popular and well known/respected app's to check your laptop for Malware etc, I frequently use two: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes AdwCleaner.

If you Google these you'll see they are highly rated and there are some good YouTube videos that will talk you through how to use them. One of my other daughters managed to get Fastlauncher.xyz malware onto her laptop which took over her Chrome browser - it can be a pain to remove but Mawarebytes took care of it.

Once you have a clean install have a look on YouTube at some of the Windows 10 optimisation tips, you can generally see how good they are from the comments left. Pick out one that covers some of the basics and you'll be surprised how a few tweeks can improve performance.

One the best things you can do to improve performance however if you don't have one already is to install a SSD. I upgraded my 5 year old PC and my boot time is 26 seconds...(I use an application to measure boot up times called Bootracer). Again, there are some good YouTube videos that take you through the process.

I used to be able to go and make a cup of tea while my PC booted up!

A new way to mess up an already messed up Registry. Just do a total clean install (with all the apps you use and necessary drivers). Then clone that hard drive. Yep, make an exact copy onto an external or internally fitted HDD or SSD. If the HDD is large enough create two partitions first. Use the OS free partition for saving files to or building up a music or games library. That way all your important docs are saved off the boot disk. Every six months to a year wipe the system et al from the HDD. Copy your cloned drive to the now clean, fresh, uncorrupted HDD. Update any divers and off you go again. A sweet smelling PC speedily doing its thing without a trashed registry.
This procedure is effortless via a Mac-Windows BootCamp install (takes a total of 10 minutes to swap the OS from old to new) and it is better than using any of the myriad miracle-fix-it applications available for Windows repairs. The Registry has to be the stupidest OS backbone of any modern OS. Like a wobbly stack of jack-straws it is constantly in a state of near collapse.
Do you have a dummies guide for a novice like me, I have a Lenovo 555 laptop that I have installed Windows 10 earlier this year and have had no end of bug's since installing Windows 10. Thanks
Cheers

Have to download their installer, then through that they download an AVG installer that errors when you try to use it.

If you want to go down the free route Avast is a far better bet.
and hang around for the next batch of free 1-year subscription promo codes.
Currently half way through my first year, can't fault it yet.
Maybe AVG is free just now because they've been bought by Avast.... 'clearing' stock ...

Hate all the nagging and bloatware AVG tries to give you. Get MalwareBytes, everyone!

Good deal :)

"LibreOffice is free and open source software, originally based on OpenOffice.org (commonly known as OpenOffice), and is the most actively developed OpenOffice.org successor project."

But you are right, time to closer look.

Will work if willing to pay.... on my second PC I run Libra Office which is totally free and does everything I need..... but I awould chose MS Office if it was cheaper!

USING free Open Office (and star office before) for years now and never had a need to use any clones.

Apparently OpenOffice isn't being seriously developed anymore and hasn't been for a few years now. Looking at the OpenOffice GUI would confirm that, it looks very dated. WPS Office therefore is far off being a 'clone' in that respect?

I wouldn't go suggesting OpenOffice to anyone looking for an open source/always free alternative to Microsoft Office. My recommendation would be LibreOffice, for anyone considering switching from Microsoft it has far more compatibility with Microsoft Office than OpenOffice does.

Thanks Ian and glaspark. Should have known better from SOS.
Guess I'll stick with GIMP: https://www.gimp.org/
Yep, it's NOT Pro version
Reviews here say it is not Pro version and hardly worth bothering with

Is this AfterShot 3 or AfterShot Pro 3 please?
There's quite a difference between the two.
