I've got ObjectDock, CursorFX, WindowsBlinds, blah blah blah installed so I can't tell what's up to date. I've been an off and on (mostly on) subscriber since '02. Deskscapes 8.8.51 bugs out when I choose about half of the included backrounds. The rest just gives me a black desktop. Is this the latest? I can't tell.

Over time, liberals in tie dye shirts listening to Greatful Dead at Woodstock have given way to people in black masks and hoods carrying mace and attacking police officers. The American left have transformed into something totally new and impossible to be classified as "liberal". The best evidence of this new movement comes with the recent post from Ivanka celebrating one year since the birth of her son, uploading an innocent and seemingly beautiful picture of the moment. Immediately, the so-cal...

Initially, I thought the Democrat Russia hysteria was a tactic designed to chip away at the legitimacy of the Trump administration, but as the days and weeks drag on with no end in sight to the histrionics of people like Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, and Adam (full of) Schiff, I'm starting to believe otherwise. I think The daily apoplexies are part of a truly deep wound that Trump may have inflicted on them. Trump and his missing link supporters may have hammered a scar so deeply into their ...

At long last, after various hold-ups and distractions, days when I felt like crap with vertigo and arthritis, I finally got my AMD FX 8350 in the Thermaltake Level 10 case up and running again.  Admittedly, there were a few things I needed to do to it - like install an AMD GFX card to match the CPU brand-wise, swap out some RAM and HDDS, etc - but that was just one part of a larger project.  I've also been remodelling my desk and reorganising everything so I'm not using as much...
The DesktopX weather widgets are not working AGAIN. Weather Underground did something to their feed so for the past few days the forcast has been disappearing.

What a disaster. Its hard to imagine what Paul Ryan and the architects of the failed healthcare bill were hoping to accomplish, but I suspect they imagined that by presenting a somewhat moderate bill that preserved many aspects of the Obamacare law, they could then attract Democrats to the plan and have a bipartisan triumph. If that's what they were hoping for then they were set up for failure from the start by someone who had some lofty ideas. If they go back to craft another bill, (I suspe...

It's amazing that after 2 years away Joeuser.com is still up and running. Granted the send to be a lot less activity than before but it's great to see this site alive. I see it's mostly Stardock articles, which makes sense, the days. I loved being here when there were​ healthy​ discussions about politics and current events, the arguments are so intense it was great. Sadly I see little to any political discussions. Well, times change but it's nice to see the site still up. Maybe I...

Why must we still endure swamp creature Comey as FBI director? If there is a better exhibit A to define "swamp," I'm not sure if it exists. Comey is like an engorged tick that requires matches and tweezers to remove.

Fences and Start10 are two popular apps from Stardock. Fences is an app that lets you organize your desktop icons into customizable fences. Start10 is an alternative Start menu for Windows 10 that brings additional options over the default Start menu. Both of these are also included with an Object Desktop membership.

One of the great things about having both these apps is they work wonderfully together and Start10 has an integrated feature with Fences which allows you to show your f...

Lets say you use firefox and it isn't working right any more.
This is why, it has corrupted files.
If the usual emptying of all cached history data doesn't work you
could try this.
First uninstall the program but that won't fix it.
Next you have to make visible all hidden files and folders in folder options.
C:\Users\you\AppData is the location where the corrupted files should be.
There should be 3 folders in AppData and you will have to look in each one
for firefox files and...

"Adguard is a third-party web service that allows you to download Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office ISO images from Microsoft services directly....One of the better options to get those is provided by the Windows ISO Downloader program for Windows. You may use the program to grab ISO images of Windows or Office versions or editions straight from Microsoft servers....The Adguard website offers an alternative. If's biggest advantage over Windows ISO Downloader is ...

I run MalwareBytes every other day. Today I updated the data-base then ran the scan. When the scan finished MB said it found 705 pups, potentially unwanted programs, 705! Go to details and every file, registry entry, folder etc. that was Advanced System Care had been quarantined! HUH!! Say what!

I ran MB day before yesterday and it did not touch ASC. Now all of a sudden its on MB's hit list. Now I have to reinstall ASC and wonder...if I run MB again will it do the same thing? Suggestions....
