71 year old Vet needs advice about tweaking, Great Program
« on: July 01, 2018, 09:26:05 AM »
Came across Tweaking couple months ago and it has done wonders for my old Think-pads.  I dont have a lot of funds SS and hopefully future pmts from VA finally    Would really like to support you.  I have more than three computers and its what I do when I cant get outside.  Should I get a license for one PC and use the free one on the ones that dont give me trouble.  how should I do this
I know the vet stuff is easy to say on line  and it took some gumption to get up the balls to post  Not much of a computer board type But I will verify as much as I can

Thanks

It's really down to what you can afford and while Shane does appreciate the support when people buy the Pro version, the repairs are the same.

The Pro version does have a few more bits to it but if buying the Pro version would cause financial hardship, I'd just stay with the free version for now.

Thanks   I just would like to support him  Dont usually do that cause they never live up to the hype this is one fantastic program Its the only one I found that really works while others talk This one delivers.   I just got done on one of my computers that was having real problems. It fixed over 500 errors.  I had run it a few months back   And now t seem to be doing fine.   Maybe i will just buy the pro version one at a time. :)

Now that computer is fine, I would advise you to create a system image onto either DVDs or an external HDD and do the same before running the program on a machine.

It is a reputable repair program and nothing like the myriad of tune up programs that are out there, although it has just had a major fix which was causing a problem on Win 10 v1803.

BTW - Which version of Windows are you using it on ?

Hold off on buying a licence just yet until I get back to you.

System Back up. NOw there is something for me to screw up LOL  Never done it.  I use eithier windows pro7  Tried 10 and just coulndt take it. Or I have some with Mint and peppermint Linux on them.  Long learning curve and programs run different on the similar computers  i can run Firefox on Mint 18  on a desk top all day. It just pretty much sucks up all the memory and crashes on every thing else

I cant wait I made it this far :)

I've sent you a PM.

I can't help you with your Linux Mint problems, although it may be driver problems but you can register on the Linux forum where they should be better placed to help.

Not sure if your suppose to delete that and put in your own or what  I replied to his email  I hope he gets it.

Dont have a reply button I can find even in the menus.  And Cant change the PP location.  Just get the same error  Just let me buy them as I can.  Wasnt looking for a handout thanks  I will buy the first one and go from there.  I know this is turning in to PIA and it wasnt my intention   Get it tomorrow :)  Thanks for putting up with me.

Also I am finding that Real Player is part of the problem as it changes registry values without telling you   S I deleted it and will see what goes on from here.  If everything is OK I will post a suggestion for others.     Also not sure my wireless on the computer s not goin gout   I have another USB Panda wireless on the way
