Windows 10: Looking for 'must have' programs - All suggestions welcome!!
^^ Sorry to hear about your troubles. And, no, as I clearly stated, there was no innuendo in my post. My experiences over the years dealing with the product, with Jeremy, Chris, Nick and the other employees, and with their support has been entirely different. Merely that.^^
Yes, "caveat emptor" applies to all aspects of personal computing these days.
Again, I'm truly sorry about your negative experiences.
I have, however, no interest in a back-and-forth argument or flame war, especially here in this forum and in this thread (where such a debate is off-topic and where the folks from Firetrust cannot respond to your concerns). So this is "EOD" for me.
Thank you again,
(Ironically, I received an email promotion from Firetrust just the other day, with a 60%-off offer for a lifetime license for up to 3 PCs. I already own 2 such licenses, so I did not take advantage. As it was an email offer unavailable on the public product page, it did not seem appropriate to post the information in a public forum.)
Thanks MoxieMamma for recognizing that complaints are not necessarily driven by bashing, flame war motives and that there is more than one assumed side to a story. And that another’s truthfulness and honesty shouldn’t be called into question, unless specific knowledge of same was much more than an assumption!
As a purchaser of a “Lifetime” Mailwasher license that was halted with a supposed new-from-the-ground-up-coded Mailwasher program, if I was presented with an offer to purchase another “Lifetime” license from Jeremy via our (above copied) email conversation -- especially at a discount similar to the one you just recent received -- I would have done so and all would have been well!! My dissatisfaction with FireTrust/Mailwasher wouldn’t have occurred; my previous posts in this thread would have never resulted and Mailwasher would have obtained more money from me.
In and around the 2012 time period IF FireTrust/Mailwasher employeers attempted to contact their “Lifetime” users with an explanation of why they could no longer upgrade, but they couldn’t make contact with them because former email addresses were no longer active, others in my situation would have obviously encountered what I did!
If thereafter, an original “Lifetime” license purchaser contacted Mailwasher as I did in 2012, why ignore their plight and essentially say, too bad so sad, especially when today (as you advised), such offers are being made? As you said, what an “ironic” (but from my perspective, and probably FireTrust/Mailwasher's, sad) twist of affairs!!

I would disagree with Exploder's suggestion of Thunderbird for email.
Thunderbird is slowly dying, few updates etc.
A far better email solution is Mailbird. I've tried most email applications over the years & Mailbird is the best I've found so far
i have wise registry cleaner, wise force deleter and wise disk cleaner. plus peazip to unzip all kinds of formats. i trust these apps and recommend using them. and lets not forget irfanview image and video viewer, great program.
Any must have software list is going to have software that each person uses on a daily basis. I don't think that there is a true , One list for everyone.
I for one use this, 7zip. Is it needed. No, you can unzip files just fine with the one built into Windows.
One tool that's a must have for me is a PDF reader. Edge just doesn't cut it,
Registry cleaner.. no. Doesn't do much if anything to justify it's use anymore.
Office tools.. for me yes but I mostly use a spreadsheet tool.. Excel.
A few programming tools.. but not much really.
DVD, CD burner...
forgot to add, best browsers so far, chrome, brave and UCweb browser which uses chrome platform. not so much FF, its quirky. don't rely on portable browsers that operate on flash, very unstable. try to avoid stock browsers that nobody ever heard of.
I've tried brave and while it's nice it's not ready for prime time.
well its better than edge, based on my own experience. -other folks will beg to differ
I use Edge on a daily basis and really find it to fit my needs but I understand how others feel about it.
Just noticed when I was about to upgrade one of my applications by starting to uninstall the current version that it wasn't no longer in the list of installed programs and lots of other programs are gone too.
Did some Google searching for this...

I'm trying to use Curse ( a chat program very much like Skype) with my friends so we can all play and talk to each other. Unfortunately, whenever I'm in a call, all programs except the chat program are muted. This is very frustrating for games where...
I am not too sure if this the correct sub-forum to post this in.
