This is a review issue of InfoAve Weekly

We're taking this weekend off so we can enjoy some time with our families and friends. Things were crowded --despite the pandemic-- over the Memorial Day weekend, so we're celebrating ours at the end of Memorial Day week instead of the beginning. So, last week we published an all-new issue of InfoAve Weekly. We hope you enjoy this week's review edition of InfoAve Weekly which features some of the best content from previous issues of our newsletters. We'll be back with a brand new InfoAve Weekly next Friday.

Thank you all so much -- and have a great weekend!

A comment from Bonnie
Dear TC, Where do I begin other than sending you a BIG thank you for what you did for me last week with Windows 10. You don't know how much I appreciate what you did then and what you've done in the past with my computer. I just can't thank you kids enough for all you do for all of us out here that are computer illiterate. I'm sure this won't be the last time I will bug you about something concerning my computer etc. God bless you all, Bonnie.

A comment from Dorothy
I just used my SeniorPass for the first time and I want to thank Darcy again for removing all the malware my computer and all the time she spent optimizing it and getting it running faster. Darcy also installed Emsisoft and gave me a free 90-day key. Great job, Darcy. I'm so thankful I bought a SeniorPass, now I don't have to worry - I can get my computer fixed anytime! Thanks so much!

A comment from Rona
Hi TC & Darcy. I thought you might enjoy this little story:  I now live in a retirement village. Yesterday morning when we were sorting out my Ashampoo problem TC, a couple of my lovely caregivers came in to change my towels. I told them I was talking to someone in America who was helping me with my computer. Well, everyone went into overdrive! "Are you sure it's safe? Have you sent them any money? Do you know what you're doing?" I assured them it was quite all right, nothing to worry about.

Next thing I had three other caregivers in my room all asking the same questions and looking at my screen to see who I was talking to! I told them I had been a member of your loyal supporters for many years and knew I could trust you implicitly. One of the girls then checked out your site for herself and was heard to say afterward that maybe she could learn a thing or two as well!! It was nice of them to be so caring about me but it was even better to be able to assure them of your integrity. Keep up the good work and thank you once more TC for your help and time spent. Kind Regards, Rona.

A comment from Gail
No question but lots of praise! I recently needed assistance with downloading and installing the latest version of Win10. I tried to do it myself several times but no success. TC stepped in and in no time had everything running great. I have had a lot of help from both of you over the years and it still amazes me to sit here and watch everything fly hither and yon on my screen. You guys will never realize fully just how grateful many of us are for your help! Thank you again for being there for me and even getting my session in early due to a cancellation. Gail

A big Cloudeight "Thank you!" to Bonnie, Dorothy, Rona, Gail, and everyone who took time out to write to us, share a comment, and/or share us on Facebook! We appreciate your kind words and your support very much! EB & TC.

Derek wants to know if it's safe to remove Microsoft Windows driver packages and VB C++ Redistributable Packages
Hello Cloudeight; Thank you for all the wonderful work you do for us oldies. My question is: When I open HiBit Uninstaller I find 8 Microsoft Visual C + + programs and 17 Windows Driver Packages for various programs; Are these essential programs or can they be removed? Best Wishes Derek

Our answer
Hi Derek. I would not recommend you remove any C++ or Windows Driver Packages.

Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages provide components such as DLLs necessary to run programs that are installed on your computer that were built using C++. If you remove the C++ redistributable packages, some of your programs may not work or may not work as expected.

Windows Driver Packages are installed with some Windows updates. Here's what Microsoft says about them:

"A driver package consists of all the software components that you must supply in order for your device to be supported under Windows. Installing a device or driver involves system-supplied and vendor-supplied components. The system provides generic installation software for all device classes... "

f you want to read more about Windows Driver Packages, see this Microsoft page.

Our advice: Don't remove any of them.

Margaret cannot delete a file

I saved a message that I had created in Live Mail. I saved it to my Documents folder, but now I cannot delete it. There is no option to delete the message. Is there another way to do this? Thank you.

Our answer
Hi Margaret. If you can't delete a file it either means it's in use by another program, it doesn't really exist, or it's a zero-byte file.

There's a free program you can download and install called "LockHunter". It can tell you what's locking the file and help you delete it.

It's really easy to use. Once you install it you'll be able to right-click on the file you can't delete and click on "What's locking this file". You'll have several options and one is to delete the file.

Be sure you read the information on the product's home page - you'll see how easy it is to use.

You can read more about and download LockHunter (free) from this page.

We've used this program many times to delete files that were difficult to delete any other way.

Roger is looking for a good file recovery program
Hi. There I may have already asked you this question. Do you have a suggestion for recovery software?  I am prepared to pay for a quality program unless you know of a good quality freebie. Keep up your good work I always follow your suggestions about various things. Thank you, Roger.

Our answer
Hi Roger. I have been testing a file recovery program for a few days now. The program is called Puran File Recovery.

We've made it a Cloudeight  freeware pick this week and you can read all about it here.

Please let me know what you think. I found its ability to use wildcards to find certain file types works exceptionally well. Also, while I have not yet tested its deep scan feature which is supposed to be able to recover data from formatted drives, it is an interesting concept.

Patricia has some questions about browser history
Is browsing history automatically deleted when the computer is closed and if not, can it be organized? Also, how do I find the history on my browser if I wish to delete it?

Our answer
Hi Patricia. You can check your browser history by pressing CTRL+H while your browser is open.

You can't organize history alphabetically; it's already organized by date. Browser history has a search box you can search your browser history for whatever you're looking for.

Finally, by default, your browsing history is not cleared, but you can set some browsers to delete history when you close them.

Jackie wants to know how to find her print queue
I am using Windows 10. How can I find the print queue to delete jobs that I don't want to print? I would appreciate any feedback you have about the print queue. Thanks.

Our answer
Hi Jackie. You should have a print queue icon (it looks like a little printer) in your notification area/system tray (the area next to the time/date in the lower right-hand corner of your screen). If you don't see it there, click the up arrow on the left edge of the notification area/system tray to expand it so you can see all the icons.

If you still don't see it do this:

Right-click the start button & click "Settings". In Settings, click on "Devices", then click "Printers and scanners" in the menu on the left. Find your printer in the list. Now just click on you printer click "Open queue". See the screenshot below:

Arnie wants to know if WinZip's Ultimate PC Care is any good
Here's the info I received from WinZip. Is it any good?

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium

Our answer
Hi Arnie. WinZip fell on hard times when Windows XP came out and came with native (built-in) file unzipping (unzipping files without 3rd-party software). At that time WinZip was the program almost everyone used to unzip files. WinZip was not free, so they made a lot of money during the days of Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE and Windows ME.

Since then, they've resorted to PUPs and Malware to keep the money flowing. During sessions fixing computers, we've found many computers infected with WinZip's many PUPs and malware programs.

The one you sent us falls into the same category as all the other One-Click-Wonder-Fixes: They don't work and may even eventually harm your computer.

Remember this: If there were such an amazing and wonderful one-click fix miracle software program, Microsoft would pay billions to buy the patent and include it with Windows.

Windows is an extremely complex program. Think of one-click fixes this way. What if you saw an advertisement that said... "Buy this device and fix all the problems with your car - including fuel injectors, tires, batteries, transmission problems, steering problems, electrical problems and more - plus it will improve your gas mileage by 40%!" Would you buy it? Of course, you wouldn't. You know better. But people still want to believe they can eat all they want and lose weight, and they still want to believe they can buy a program that will fix all their computer problems with a single click and make it like it just like new again.

Take my advice, Arnie -- don't waste your money.

Cindy wants to know about Hard Drive Sentinel
Are you familiar with a program called Hard Drive Sentinel? If so, what is your take on it?

Our answer
Hi Cindy. Most of the time you won't need a program to tell you when your hard drive is failing. Almost all hard drives are S.M.A.R.T. (see our article here). That means almost all hard drives are self-monitoring.

If you want to analyze and check your drives to see what condition they're in, you could use Hard Drive Sentinel. But you'll notice if you look at the download page it's not free. There are free versions for DOS and Linux, but not for Windows.

If you want a disk analyzer and you don't want to pay for it, we recommend CrystalDiskInfo. It's free for home users. You can read our recommendation here.

Let me know what you think.
Cindy wrote back: "Thank you so much for this info. I recognized the name right away and am sure at some point in the past I installed it on your recommendation from a newsletter. But I must have lost it in a crash somewhere along the way and didn't remember to re-install it. I've already downloaded it and will be using it. Thanks again, Cindy."

Yvonne wants to know why she has so many Chrome processes running
I noticed that I have an excess of (11) Chrome.exe 32 processes open in Task Manager. Chrome is my default browser. Do I need all of these? They are using more than a bit of memory. I took a screenshot, but I don't see a way to include it in this form. I haven't a clue as to what I can "stop" or "end" without screwing up things. My favorite motto is: "Thou shalt not screw up my computer." Thanks!

Our answer
Hi Yvonne. Back in the old days, and still with some older browsers, the browser opened all pages/tabs in the same process. While this sure looked good in Task Manager, if/when the browser crashed, all the pages/tabs that were open, and all your extensions, all crashed together.

Chrome opens each tab/page in a separate process - and it also opens active extensions in separate processes. While this makes it look like you have many Chrome browsers open in Task Manager, it's only Chrome showing each tab/page and active extension as a separate process.

If you close a Chrome process, you'll end up closing a tab/page or extension.

I hope this helps explain why you have so many Chrome processes showing in Task Manager.

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium -Tips & Tricks

Windows10 Acrylic Effect (Or the Saga of the Blurry Lock Screen)
Windows 10 (all supported versions)

We’ve had a lot of emails from people who are wondering why the picture on the Windows 10 Login screen is blurry. This is called the “Acrylic effect” and it’s supposed to make Windows cooler. But many of you don’t agree and find the blurred login screen background annoying because it looks like something’s wrong with your PC, but it’s just Windows trying to be cool.

Here’s my login screen with the “Acrylic effect” – in other words, a blurry background picture.

Windows 10 Tips & Tricks - Acrylic effect

If you'd you like to turn off the Acrylic effect and have a clear background picture on your login screen here’s what you need to do.

1.) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop and choose “Personalize”.

Cloudeight Windows 10 Tips

2.) Personalization settings will open. Click on “Colors” in the menu on the left side.

Cloudeight Windows 10 Tips and Tricks

3.) Turn “Transparency effects” Off and close “Settings”

4.) To check your Login Screen, hold down the Windows key and tap the L key. Click the Lock screen and you’ll see your Login screen. You’ll see that the background picture on the Login screen is not blurred. No Acrylic effect. 

Cloudeight Windows 10 Tips

If you ever want the Acrylic effect back, just turn Transparency effects back on.

5 Easy Tips That We Use Every Day
Windows 10 (all versions)

Here are 5 Windows tips we use almost every day. These tips save time and are super-easy. Today, we’re going to share these five with you.

1: Bring up the Lock Screen in Windows 10

If you press the Windows Key + L, it will bring up the lock screen in Windows 10.  If you use a password Windows Key + L will “lock” your Window 10 PC until you enter your password or PIN.

2: Make any word or phrase a hyperlink

If you want to make a link out of a word or a phrase, like “Visit our InfoAve Website“, it’s super easy to do. Select the word or words you want to make into a hyperlink and press CTRL+K. A dialog will appear. In the dialog type or paste the URL (web site address) and press Enter. If you did that correctly, the word or words you highlighted are now a clickable hyperlink. This works with most word processors and email programs. It also works in Gmail. Try it!

3: Open a new instance of a program with just the click of your mouse

Did you know on most computer mice, you can click the scroll wheel? You can and we call the “middle mouse button”. If you middle-click on the taskbar of an open program, it will open a new instance of that program. Try it. It works with Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Edge Dev, Notepad, File Explorer (Windows 10), (Windows Explorer in Windows 7), Thunderbird, and many other programs. This will work with any program that allows multiple instances to run.

4: Open Task Manager with a keyboard shortcut

Just press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and Task Manager will open.

5: Hide all open windows in a hurry

If you want to clear all open windows from your screen quickly, press the Windows Key and the M key; to reopen them again, press Windows Key+SHIFT+ M.

Five Rules for Safe Downloading
Windows 8x and Windows 10 (all versions)

1 Use Good Security Software:

Using a good antivirus/anti-malware is your first line of defense. We use and highly recommend Emsisoft Anti-Malware (and antivirus). Emsisoft provides immediate warnings if you click something you shouldn't have. Emsisoft is the only program we have seen that helps users avoid installing PUPs and hijackers by warning them right away. Plus, Emsisoft is an excellent anti-malware and anti-virus too - it always scores well in reliable tests performed by independent antivirus testing labs.

2. Don't click without knowing what you're clicking:

If you get a popup offering a download that you didn't ask for, don't click anything; press the ALT+F4 keys to close the popup.

3. Be careful where you download from:

Many sites like CNet, File Hippo, and many others, use deceptive practices including strategically placed, large and small green download buttons which download software all right, but not the software you intended to download. Sites like Softonics and Brothersoft are even worse. They bundle good, clean freeware in their own malware bundler which they euphemistically call a "download manager". When possible, we suggest you use for downloading. Snapfiles is our number one site for downloading software. We use Major Geeks sometimes too.

4. Think before you click:

If you click to download something, and something looks or feels amiss, stop the download. It might be that you clicked on a deceptive download button or an ad instead. No software program or app is worth messing up your computer.

5. Take your time:

During installation, take your time. Do not rush. Make sure you read each dialog screen during setup. Many times, you will have to uncheck other programs being "offered" or you will find you've infected your PC with malware, most often hijackers & PUPs. Taking an extra minute or two and reading each dialog during installation can help protect your computer. So, don't rush through installations by simply clicking "next", "next", "next", "Finish".  Take your time when you install software, and you'll save time in the long run.

Our rule of thumb:  If we start installing a program that offers to install anything other than what we wanted, we cancel the installation and delete the installer. No one needs to put up with software download and installation trickery.

Slow PC? Try Turning off Search Indexing and/or SuperFetch
Windows 10 (all versions)

Search Indexing (Windows Search)

Windows 10 constantly indexes your hard disk in the background. It’s called Search Indexing. Indexing is supposed to make searching your PC faster. But if your PC is slow, that constant indexing can decrease performance. Turning off Search Indexing can speed up your computer. This is especially true if your computer has a standard hard drive. But even if you have an SSD drive, turning off indexing can improve your speed, because the constant writing to disk that indexing does can eventually slow down SSDs too.

You can turn off Search Indexing in Windows 10 this way:

1. Type SERVICES.MSC in the taskbar search and press Enter.
2. Locate Windows Search in the list of services and double-click it.
3. Next to “Startup type” click on the down arrow to expand the list and choose “Manual”
4. Click the “Stop” button.
5. Click Apply/OK

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows 10 tips

6. Restart your computer

Your searches may be slightly slower, but your computer should be slightly faster. If desired, you can always go back and change Windows Search startup type to “Automatic” or “Automatic (Delayed Start)” and restart your computer. Windows will again start search indexing.

SuperFetch / SysMain

SuperFetch (called SysMain beginning with Windows 10 version 1809) was designed to speed up performance by arranging frequently used app data and components into a contiguous area on the hard drive which was then preloaded into memory to speed up the loading time of an app or programs. However, many time SuperFetch can cause high disk or CPU usage and can cause your PC to run slowly. You can disable SuperFetch or SysMain this way.

1. Type SERVICES.MSC in the taskbar search and press Enter.
2. Locate SuperFetch (or SysMain if you’re using version 1809 or newer) and double-click it.
3. Next to “Startup type” click on the down arrow to expand the list and choose “Disabled”
4. Click the “Stop Button”
5. Click Apply/OK

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows 10 Tips

6. Restart your computer.

If your computer is running slowly, turning off Search Indexing and/or SuperFetch (SysMain) can help speed up your computer without negatively affecting your computer.

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium -Tips & Tricks

Search Everything on Your Computer Faster with Everything

As far as I know — or for as long as I can remember, at least — Windows has always had a search feature. It’s not always been very good. And it’s certainly not the fastest. In Windows XP and Vista, the Windows search feature was not very good and certainly not very fast. Windows 7 brought some improvements – as did Windows 8x and Windows 10. But Windows search is still as fast as it should be, not as thorough as it could be, and not nearly as fast Everything search – a free search program for Windows 7, Windows 8x, and Windows 10.

Everything is not new; it’s been around for a long time. It’s from Voidtools. The developer, David Carpenter, is so sure you’ll like Everything search, he puts his name and email address on the Everything website – that says a lot about the program and the developer.

We had featured Everything once before. This week we were reminded of Everything by Cloudeight subscriber Robert.  After Robert reminded us of Everything I decided to check out Everything again. And I found that it's better than ever and a very fast and very thorough Windows search engine.

We did a couple of quick tests. And Everything produced great search results almost instantly. In the first test, I looked for all files on my laptop with the “white.mid” in their names. Everything found, well, everything with “white.mid” in its name in the blink of an eye.

Cloudeight Freeware Pick - Everything Search

And in another test, I just looked for all PDF files on my laptop. I used the wildcard * (that is *.PDF) to search for all PDF files. In less than 2 seconds it found every PDF file on my laptop – and there are a whole lot of them.

Cloudeight Freeware Pick - Everything Search

So, with our tests completed successfully, it’s time to bring in David Carpenter, the developer of Everything, to answer your questions:

What is “Everything”?

“Everything” is search engine that locates files and folders by filename instantly for Windows.

Unlike Windows search “Everything” initially displays every file and folder on your computer (hence the name “Everything”).

You type in a search filter to limit what files and folders are displayed.

How long will it take to index my files?

“Everything” only indexes file and folder names and generally takes a few seconds to build its database.

A fresh install of Windows 10 (about 120,000 files) will take about 1 second to index.

1,000,000 files will take about 1 minute.

Does Everything search file contents?

Yes, “Everything” can search file content with the content: search function.

File content is not indexed, searching content is slow.

Does “Everything” hog my system resources?

No, “Everything” uses very little system resources.

A fresh install of Windows 10 (about 120,000 files) will use about 14 MB of ram and less than 9 MB of disk space.

1,000,000 files will use about 75 MB of ram and 45 MB of disk space.

Does “Everything” monitor file system changes?

Yes, “Everything” does monitor file system changes.

Your search windows will reflect changes made to the file system.

Is “Everything” free?

Yes, “Everything” is Freeware.

Please consider donating.

Does “Everything” contain any malware, spyware or adware?

No, “Everything” does not contain any malware, spyware or adware…

If you want to read more about Everything, visit this page.

Everything is available for download as a portable app or with an installer. It’s available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. You can download Everything from this page. 

If you’re looking for a faster, better way find files on your Windows computer, give “Everything” a try. It’s fast, free, and contains no malware or badware – and the author does not play whack-a-mole with the download links.

And should you have any questions or problems, David Carpenter puts his name and email address on the Everything web site.

Raincrows - The 13th Anniversary


“Raincrows” was originally published in May 2007. This essay is based on memories that were created and left to me by my grandfather. Because memories live on as long as we remember them, my grandfather lives on in my life as well. I hope you will take the time to read this essay and let me share my memories and my grandfather with you.

It was written on a chilly, rainy evening in May, thirteen years ago. It brings back wonderful memories for me — I hope it brings back wonderful memories for you as well. 

I dedicate this essay to my grandfather.


Today was a rainy, unseasonably chilly day in May. I waited most of the day for the rain to stop so that I could take my daily walk. I’ve always liked to walk but just in the past couple of months I’ve become an avid walker – motivated by recent health problems and spurred on by my Georgian friend – I try to walk at least one hour each day – and today was no exception.

The rain finally stopped.

Although it was very chilly for a day in mid-May, a light jacket and a brisk pace were all I needed to keep myself comfortably warm. The sidewalks and streets were wet and glistening; the wind was calm, the sky a gloomy, and the endless overcast that made the time of day seem later than it was.

For those of you who walk you’ll probably understand it when I say that a long walk exercises your mind as well as your body. I do my best thinking when I’m walking. Especially the long walks I take as the day draws to a close. This evening with the wet streets, puddled sidewalks, and lack of wind, the evening seemed quieter than most. And it was a Sunday too. There’s something different about Sundays. Sundays seem more peaceful...

Instead of moving a window to the side or resizing it to see a window that is behind it, just click minimize on the window. It can be found in the upper-right hand corner - it is a minus sign. We notice that a lot of folks drag the window over to the side to see our chat box during Cloudeight Direct Care sessions; it's easier to just minimize the window on top.
