    Chim got a reaction from Garthesone in Problem with the Forums' Functionality?   
    I don't know if it's just on my side, but I've been noticing some problems with the functionality of the forums.
     
    (1) If I try to post a reply in a thread via the "Reply to this topic" box at the bottom of the thread ... nothing happens. The reply doesn't remotely attempt to get posted. I end up having to use the Black "Reply to this topic" BUTTON at the upper right of the page.
     
    (2) The next issue: Well, I was planning on attaching a screen capture image to show the problem that I'm encountering, but the problem is that I'm not being allowed to attach an image because the problem IS right at that area. So, I'll try to explain the problem.
     
    Right there at the "Attach Files" area at the bottom left of the reply box ... where the "Choose Files" BUTTON is --- some other text that appears to read "uldn't load plug" is being superimposed on the Choose Files BUTTON. This is rendering the Choose Files BUTTON non-functional.
     
    In case it helps zero in on the problem --- I am using Windows XP Pro SP3. I am using the latest version of avast Free Anti-Virus. I am using NetZero Dial Up Internet.

    I have now gone back down and installed Maxthon Cloud 4.9.3.1000.
     
    The verdict?  It appears that that fixed the problems.   So, I guess there IS some bug with the newer Maxthon version 4.9.4.2000 that is causing the problems in question.  Right now it's getting late.  I'll have to wait until tomorrow to post up the issue on the Maxthon forum.

    Ooooooo!  Heyyy!  BAMM!  Bingo!  Good call, Xilolee. 
     
    That was the problem.  I am now typing this reply from my secondary / backup browser --- Opera 36.0.2130.65 and the problems have been neutralized.  Cuz actually, there was even a third issue I hadn't even mentioned, but it's now been fixed as well with the use of Opera.  That third symptom was that the Attributes Bar wouldn't even display.  So when you mentioned trying that button above the BOLD button, I immediately went, "What BOLD button?  I can't even get the Attributes Bar to display anymore."
     
    Anyway, my normal browser is Maxthon Cloud 4.9.4.2000.  That is the browser with which I was getting those 3 problems.  It's possible that the culprit is THAT specific version of Maxthon, its latest.  I say this because I know I didn't used to experience those problems before and that's probably because before, I used to use the 4.9.3.1000 version of Maxthon Cloud.
     
    A bit later and into the evening, let me experiment by going back to that 4.9.3.1000 version of Maxthon and see if that fixes the problems Maxthon wise.  If that gets things working back to normal, I guess I'll then go to the Maxthon forums and inform them of the incompatibility issues or just plain ole BUG.
     
    I'll let you know the verdict sometime later, Xilolee.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Chim got a reaction from BorisSen in Request for Re-Title in Menu of USB Version   
    This is NOT a PortableApps.com problem.  This is a Wise problem.
     
    Sure, the menu platform is that of PortableApps.com ... but, the particular Wise Registry Cleaner 9.41.612 in there is NOT a PortableApps.com version.  Not every App that you see there in the menu in the screen cap is a PortableApps.com version.
     
    The latest version that PortableApps.com has currently is version 9.35.  So no, the version there in my menu showing the NON-ideal title is not the PortableApps.com version.  It is the Wise version.  I can't remember where I got it.  If I had to guess, it might have been Major Geeks or Softpedia.

    Since yesterday March 23rd, I see on Major Geeks that there is supposedly already a WRC 9.42.613 version out.  However, at the Wise Download Center, the latest WRC version out is 9.41.
     
    Is the Wise Download Center behind or is Major Geeks wrong?

    The other day I decided to try the Program Uninstaller in the Utilities Sidebar over on the right of WC 365.  I figured if it worked exactly as the standalone version, I'd naturally delete the standalone version from my PA.com platform in my Flash Drive as I would of course no longer need it.  No use having the same app twice in my Flash Drive apps arsenal.
     
    Well, if I deciphered correctly what then happened ... I believe Program Uninstaller proceeded to be downloaded.  I aborted the download because [A]  I already have a Wise Program Uninstaller.    I have Dial Up Internet and didn't expect to be downloading anything at that time.
     
    QUESTION #1:  Do ALL of those "NEW" utilities in the Utilities Sidebar need to first be downloaded before being able to be used?
     
    QUESTION #2:  Will these "NEW" utilities eventually be incorporated into Wise Care 365 in a future version?  If so, how many versions from the current version?  One?  Two?  You know ... so they wouldn't have to first be downloaded and installed.
     
    In other words, I'm hoping to get to the point to where Wise Care 365 covers ALL the bases and functions of ALL the current Wise standalone products that I use.  I like to operate lean & mean.  So the less standalone Wise apps that I'd have to have installed in my PA.com platform and have WC 365 cover all those functions ... the better.  Especially given that right now I haven't even seen a portable version of Wise Force Deleter.

    Chim got a reaction from MeggGuify in Wise Care 365 vs. Wise Registry Cleaner   
    So what's the deal with Wise Care 365?  Does it by any chance require, only work on very fast and powerful computers?  Is there a minimum Processor that a computer must have in order for Wise Care 365 to work properly?
     
    Last year when I first tried Wise Care 365, it was on my old Dell GX280 Small Form Factor with only a Pentium 4 processor and either 1 or 2 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Home SP3.  As I recall, as soon as I would try the Registry Cleaner function, my GX280's CPU fan would quickly start spinning at top speed, sounding like a helicopter.  And the scanning would immediately go into a snail's pace crawl to the point that I would quickly have to abort.  Yet, the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner (PortableApps.com version) would scan quickly, without a problem and without remotely making my GX280 break a sweat.
     
    Now that I have a Dell Optiplex 780 with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Pro SP3, the other day I again decided to give Wise Care 365 another shot.  This computer being a much more powerful and quieter computer, the CPU fan does not go into top speed helicopter mode when running a scan with the Registry Cleaner function.  But, the scan does take a noticeably, undeniably LONG time at 4 minutes and 35 seconds!  That while the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner took all of 13 seconds ... and found the SAME 41 items that it took Wise Care 365's Registry Cleaner function 4 minutes and 35 seconds to find.    
     
    So what's going on?
    (1)  Is Wise Care 365 not meant for older, weak Pentium era computers with Windows XP?
     
    (2)  Why does the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function take wayyy longer to complete a scan vs. the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... while finding the same amount of items?  From what I see, I'm tempted to reason that maybe it's that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is wayyy more thorough than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... even though ultimately the same amount of items are found by both.  Because it's not like the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is scanning at a crawl on my Dell Optiplex 780.  No.  I see that it's actually scanning very speedily.  It appears to be checking a lot of something.  Unless it's an optical illusion, I'm tempted to think that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function scans a ton more Registry Entries than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner.  I just keep going back to that in the end, ultimately both apps find the same amount of items.  Odd.

    I've been looking for a good Video Downloader, much preferably a Portable version.  Being very satisfied with Wise Disk Cleaner and Wise Registry Cleaner (Version 8.83) Portable versions, I was immediately excited when I found out there was a Wise Video Downloader Portable.
     
    Unfortunately, I just can't seem to get it to work at all.  Hopefully someone has some insight as to what I'm doing wrong ... what I need to do or tweak.  I am using Windows XP SP3 Pro.  My computer has a Core 2 Duo Processor and 4 Gig of RAM.  I am using the latest avast Anti-Virus version.  I am using NetZero Dial Up.
     
    Question:  Does Wise Video Downloader download ONLY videos from YouTube and Metacafe and no other sources?  Well, either way, I haven't even been able to download YouTube videos.  For example, just a while ago, I tossed this YouTube at Wise Video Downloader
    and it was no dice.  No can do.  Failure.  Denied.  It's been the same results no matter what other videos I toss at it.  Yet Any Video Converter will download any video I toss at it. 
    I have enclosed an attachment image of the typical error that I get.

    Last year when I first tried Wise Care 365, it was on my old Dell GX280 Small Form Factor with only a Pentium 4 processor and either 1 or 2 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Home SP3.  As I recall, as soon as I would try the Registry Cleaner function, my GX280's CPU fan would quickly start spinning at top speed, sounding like a helicopter.  And the scanning would immediately go into a snail's pace crawl to the point that I would quickly have to abort.  Yet, the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner (PortableApps.com version) would scan quickly, without a problem and without remotely making my GX280 break a sweat.
     
    Now that I have a Dell Optiplex 780 with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Pro SP3, the other day I again decided to give Wise Care 365 another shot.  This computer being a much more powerful and quieter computer, the CPU fan does not go into top speed helicopter mode when running a scan with the Registry Cleaner function.  But, the scan does take a noticeably, undeniably LONG time at 4 minutes and 35 seconds!  That while the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner took all of 13 seconds ... and found the SAME 41 items that it took Wise Care 365's Registry Cleaner function 4 minutes and 35 seconds to find.    
     
    So what's going on?
    (1)  Is Wise Care 365 not meant for older, weak Pentium era computers with Windows XP?
     
    (2)  Why does the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function take wayyy longer to complete a scan vs. the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... while finding the same amount of items?  From what I see, I'm tempted to reason that maybe it's that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is wayyy more thorough than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... even though ultimately the same amount of items are found by both.  Because it's not like the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is scanning at a crawl on my Dell Optiplex 780.  No.  I see that it's actually scanning very speedily.  It appears to be checking a lot of something.  Unless it's an optical illusion, I'm tempted to think that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function scans a ton more Registry Entries than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner.  I just keep going back to that in the end, ultimately both apps find the same amount of items.  Odd.

    The other day I decided to try the Program Uninstaller in the Utilities Sidebar over on the right of WC 365.  I figured if it worked exactly as the standalone version, I'd naturally delete the standalone version from my PA.com platform in my Flash Drive as I would of course no longer need it.  No use having the same app twice in my Flash Drive apps arsenal.
     
    Well, if I deciphered correctly what then happened ... I believe Program Uninstaller proceeded to be downloaded.  I aborted the download because [A]  I already have a Wise Program Uninstaller.    I have Dial Up Internet and didn't expect to be downloading anything at that time.
     
    QUESTION #1:  Do ALL of those "NEW" utilities in the Utilities Sidebar need to first be downloaded before being able to be used?
     
    QUESTION #2:  Will these "NEW" utilities eventually be incorporated into Wise Care 365 in a future version?  If so, how many versions from the current version?  One?  Two?  You know ... so they wouldn't have to first be downloaded and installed.
     
    In other words, I'm hoping to get to the point to where Wise Care 365 covers ALL the bases and functions of ALL the current Wise standalone products that I use.  I like to operate lean & mean.  So the less standalone Wise apps that I'd have to have installed in my PA.com platform and have WC 365 cover all those functions ... the better.  Especially given that right now I haven't even seen a portable version of Wise Force Deleter.
