Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Spring Cleaning Deluxe for Mac has many opposite reviews on fairly reliable websites. It is rated from 1-star to 5-stars by more than a couple of people....This is a very common situation whenever I search for honest advice. The negative opinions are usually frightening, about how the software seriously hurt their computers.... How can any average computer user know how to make software decisions and which reviews to trust?

Well apart from testing the software and knowing that it is able to deliver what you need it for, the other most important issue is SUPPORT. it is important that any software has great support for when something goes wrong (and it always does). Most major companies offer support but you also need to think about support in your local area. It's often much easier to have someone locally come in and do things you need done with your software than have someone trying to help you over the phone.
So In analyzing those reviews, focus much on what support level was received by the users.

hope that helps.

First ..all cleaning software are potential harmful cause they are not subjective in decisions ..but act after a preset command..and can delete software and files that you keep in computer for a very important reason ..but almost never open ..and usually this kinda file (never used) are first to be deleted...But ..in the other way it is a good tool and the reviews are always subjective and most of the time the guilty one is the user cause didn't payed attention on the settings or decisions...
Keep in mind that all free software have a backdoor all the time ..and are made for a reason ...(even if it is not harmful for you ...most of the time they are gathering data about the way users are using the computer and their preferences..) ..like I said ..nothing is for free on this world...right ?? so always is best to choose a payed one if you afford instead a free one .. except ..common ones like players and stuff ..which are mostly advertising result of a bigger deal ...So...noone can be completelly sure of a product ...but ..my advice is to use stuff that your friends and colleagues ..recommend and used before without problems ...this way I never got in a tide spot...and ..of course..use consecrated companies ...which can not afford do make monkey business ...

    By the way ..I almost forgot...stay away from beta products..cause they are not a finished product ..and always have issues..and are around just for those who like new stuff and like to take chances ...

When am shopping online at pet smart for a product for dog smells and after the star review there are different numbers what are the numbers for in rating the product?


For most shopping sites, the number after the star rating is the number of reviews with that rating.

For example, this dog toy, https://www.petsmart.com/dog/toys/pet-holidayandtrade-polar-bear-flattie-dog-toy---crinkle-46579.html?cgid=100411 , has only one review. Thus there is a 1 after the appropriate number of stars. Not all reviews include text so there may be more total ratings (number of stars) than reviews with comments.

I hope this helps.

I think you will find the tool kit should be behind the panel on the opposite side to the battery cover (Left side?). As far as a manual goes, you can find it chopped up into bite size chunks on the venturerider.org website uploaded there by someone:

Data sorting in Excel


If the serial numbers of all the names on the column are A1-A100.
and you want to count the no of people with a name that appears on A6.

use this

=COUNTIF(A1:A100,A6) function go(url) { window.open(AppendFromParamToUrl(url), "_self"); } function OpenInNewWindow(url) { window.open(AppendFromParamToUrl(url), "_blank"); } function AppendFromParamToUrl(url) { if (null != url) { url += (url.indexOf("?") > -1) ? "&from=" : "?from="; url += escape(window.location.href); } return url; } var L_UNDEFINED_TEXT = 'Help could not locate this inline definition.'; function InlineDefNotFound() { alert(L_UNDEFINED_TEXT); } function AppendPopup(oSource, sPopup) { InitializeGlobalData(); if (typeof(allDivsInPage) == 'undefined' || null == allDivsInPage) return; var theDiv = allDivsInPage['divInlineDef_' + sPopup]; if (typeof(theDiv) == 'undefined' || null == theDiv) { InlineDefNotFound(); return; } if (theDiv.style.display.toUpperCase() != 'INLINE') theDiv.style.display = 'inline'; else theDiv.style.display = 'none'; } var strAssetVersion = '0';var strGoDisplayCountOK = "Remaining characters: {0}";var fDisableCounter = false;var fDisableCounterFirst = true;var fWasLastCountOver = false;var fIsSimpleFeedbackWiz = false;var fIsOn2Lines = false;var strGoDisplayCountOver = 'You entered {0} characters.
