Looks like a fairly decent VPN service, only thing is they have a subscription option on their website for $3 a month, I didn't select it or opt for it but it seems to be enabled (didn't double check), maybe it comes free for a while or with the key, dunno.



When I too installed the same, the Serial Code was either DIRECTLY on SharewareOnSale's own website, prior to the initial download in the first place, or they emailed it to me directly instead? (I forget?).

Either way, check the SharewareOnSale email they sent you, your FREE Premium Serial Code is embedded for free within there too/regardless, lol. :-)

Hopefully you haven't spammed that same email yet?.

Great offer. Even though Google Earth Pro is supposed to be free these days, the official free key link gives 404. This one is absolutely hassle-free.

This was also on one of the comments on that same Freebie link I linked from above ... (which too may indirectly explain the SharewareOnSale version, and/or direct Google download 'differences', etc?, that's all I know?).

I've never used the paid for version before (even though I too downloaded same some years back, like most people).

I have however used the freebie version, that was formally available for wayyyyyy longer!, and it be GOOOOOOOD. :-)

I thought this was free to begin with



NOPE, Google Earth used to be the only one that traditionally used to be alway's free.

And in contrast, Google Earth Pro used to also traditionally be the one that rather used to cost you serious $Dollar's, and/or serious £Pounds, in the region of $100's/£100's a piece!, so ..... lol.

It's only as of about 2 year's or so ago that Google Earth Pro is now actually free, etc? (despite Google Earth Pro being around for more than 4 years or so now?). :-)

It's cool though.

to provide vpn services it costs money and if they're not getting it from you where are they getting it from?

It seems really weird that a free VPN plummets in the minuses without any real reasoning in the comments.

after you created the account there they do offer a standard way to connect: https://seed4.me/pages/setup#l2tp-setup

Anyway - VPN outfits basically see all your traffic.

Just like when you are warned to know exactly which free wifi hot spot you connect to when you are out and about - some are just people tracing your activity collecting logins and passwords.

VPN providers can easily use a number of man-in-the-middle SSL attacks to let you believe you are connected securely to your netflix or bank account, but they can see all the activity and gain control of your accounts.

Don't do anything on the VPN that requires you to provide your login - the risk of a future government sending you to prison for visiting the Green Party website is less than having your ID stolen by people working at or compromising VPN providers.

Your ISP is more trustworthy. (Doesn't make them actually trustworthy though)

Wow, the excitement died down within 30 mins?X)

It's now not working with Netflix. Seems only certain IP's aren't blocked...takes a while to find one that'll work

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.

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?. :-)

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.

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.

Do you have a dummies guide for a novice like me, I have a Lenovo 555 … 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 … 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.
