  • @win32 said: It looks like Encarta 98 and Office 97's bastardized lovechild in terms of interface. Kinda shows what they were going for with Neptune/Millennium as well. What does that have to do with MS Works? Anyway, I found this disk fo…
  • Not criticizing or anything, but there's already a topic in this Site Issues forum that explains a little bit about the same issue as this one, https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/10898/how-can-i-change-my-email
  • @SomeGuy said: It has an excellent built in spell checker and grammar checker. Give it a try. All office suites have good built-in spell/grammar checkers, so that's easy to believe.
  • @BlueSun said: I've personally never been a fan of restricting internet access. Especially at schools where freedom of information should be more important. But I do understand not wanting kids going to random sites that could potentially infect …
  • Also, GoGuardian can take control over YouTube, meaning it can block age-restricted videos, and can also blacklist certain videos. But luckily, high schoolers, like me, have a little more freedom than elementary/middle schoolers on school computers,…
  • @win32 said: Winworld is too obscure for a human to block. Bots, maybe. I never really bothered with school computers, though I do remember that my high school blocked Facebook for a few years. They also did have a lanschool-type program t…
  • @Metzerr said: Nice build bud. I'm still running the FX-8350. Works well. Don't game as much as I use to. Thanks! And yes, I was originally going to get an AMD FX as my CPU during the planning of this build, but then I found out that FX p…
  • I know I'm not an admin, but I think this topic should go in the Software forum. Just saying.
  • @lolcat said: Try a Ryzen 5, there better than the Ryzen 3, Trust me. I thought about getting a Ryzen 5, but it was a little expensive. I actually got my CPU (Ryzen 3) for a pretty good deal on Newegg. I like my Ryzen 3 as it's got great …
  • I think this product key should go in the serials thread.
  • I have to agree with Nick right there. You can't just expect to have something complete in a giphy. People have their own lives. A lot of us make offers on WinWorld, and not a lot of our offered software is not taken up in the library. It usually ta…
  • I know, I was just pointing something out. I actually figured those were two computers.
  • @yourepicfailure said: One day, a thought came to my mind. "You know what, I wonder what using a mac would be like." Didn't want to splurge what 1 or 2k euro for a mac. So I loaded up mojave on my x230t just for shits and giggles. Snip …
  • UPDATE: I had a couple notes I forgot to add when I wrote this topic last July. When I received the CPU, it came with a heatsink, which was a little devastating because I already bought a heatsink before I bought the CPU, so I didn't know what to do…
  • @VicWith3Numbers said: wow, Great! I also build a retro gaming PC that works on Windows 2000, the most Stable and the best OS ever it has an i7 processor with 2 cores, 16 GB of RAM, (1GB for Windows, 15 GB extended), 2 harddisks, 2 floppy …
  • I've never really had any experience with Chromium, but sometimes when I install a certain app, the Chromium browser gets automatically installed on my computer with the software I'm originally installing. And so I just ignore the Chromium applicati…
  • @BlueSun said: except ad-blockers, because I like supporting site owners by making them money via ads on their sites I think there are better ways to support site owners. For example, there's Brave (https://brave.com/) whic…
  • I sure hope Google doesn't make it so that Chrome stops providing password management, because managing passwords is important if you forgot your password and have trouble logging in to your account on a website. But hey, no one can really say what …
  • Microsoft Encarta has been discontinued since 2009, and the website associated with it seemed to have come down in 2011, so I'd say Microsoft Encarta 2004 is now abandonware. I actually have seen a few downloads on WinWorld from between 2000 and 200…
  • I have a serial key for Adobe Photoshop 5.0 Limited Edition, SDMSO1B1797286-554 I think this key should be added to the Adobe PhotoShop 5.0 page.
  • Also, I don't think it's even right to contribute files that you downloaded from other sites. I think it's a much better idea to upload your own releases to WinWorld (a legal copy of something you have on an actual disk), but I get it, it probably i…
  • @win32 said: 2018 was good in terms of my software finds: Simcity 2000 for Windows 95, Office 2000 Pro, a 32-CD set of the first 111 years of National Geographic issues and today came the crown jewel:! Snip I had to retire my native…
  • Coming from my point of view, I would never recommend download managers/assistants to anyone who wants to download stuff the safe way, because they do seem a little too dangerous according to what I've seen so far in this topic, and the Wikipedia ar…
  • I might be a little late for the party, but we're all friends, so what the heck. Anyways, I just can't believe it's already 2019, 2018 did go by fast. I've been a WinBoards/WinWorld member since February 2018, and I can't believe that was already a …
  • Windows Vista was not that bad of an OS. I actually have a PC with Vista, and it seems to work fine, although it has been a bit slower than it used to be, but that could just be because of it being unsupported. I remember back in late 2016, I couldn…
  • I don't want to sound like a mod, but this topic isn't something that should be posted in the News & Announcements forum, this is a topic that would have been better posted in the Software forum.
  • UPDATE: I no longer use McAfee SiteAdvisor. I now use Norton Security, which I got as a subscription very recently, and with that, I got the Chrome extension for Norton which is like McAfee SiteAdvisor, but better. So no more fake blacklistings
  • I decided to repost the information about my first computer since my last post had incorrect information about it's specs. Anyway, like I said before in this topic, my first computer was a custom build from 1998. My parents got it as our first "f…
  • I think it could be possible to play games in virtual machines, but probably not 3D games, because like KCompRoom2000 said, the graphics would probably be crappy, but maybe try using VirtualBox Guest Additions, because that usually enhances a lot of…
  • Yeah, I think I'll remove McAfee SiteAdvisor from my browser and go with a better so called web crawler that actually does useful and realistic things. And yes, I am now able to have WinWorld whitelisted again.
