Hi there
I've just installed Foxit PDF reader -- It works fine -- now am uninstalling Adobe pdf reader.
Don't know whats up with adobe these days --if I could find a decent alternative to Photoshop I would --Note the GIMP is fine but I NEED photoshop unfortunately --it's still the best out there in spite of Adobe's messing up the latest releases of its software.

A:Foxit Reader works fine -- uninstalling Adobe pdf reader

I've used Foxit reader, but it wasn't totally compatible with Adobe Acrobat created PDF files, but in most cases it sufficed quite well. As for Photoshop replacements, there are a few others available and PaintShop Pro is not a bad alternative, though when Corel bought it out initially, it completely stuffed things up. I understand that it's fixed a lot of update issues etc in that time and it's leagues cheaper than Photoshop.

What are your reviews on Foxit Reader?Small Question: Can Foxit Reader view PDF files inside IE just like Adobe Reader?Edit:I was reading one of the reviews in Download.com and the user says:"Danger: Create a restore point if you have to install!"by (Name Removed) on November 26, 2008 Pros: Unknown. In order to do anything that Adobe reader doesn't already do - better, you must install other spyware-laden crap.Cons: Created a toolbar that would not uninstall, even after uninstalling program. Created unasked for shortcuts and entries in favorites.Does it really do this?

A:Should I replace Adobe Reader with Foxit Reader?

I have used foxit reader for awhile now and have not had a problem, I love it.. Yes it does open PDF file in IE as well as in Firefox

And the only reason that guy said about the toolbar is because he installed it!! It does not come prepackaged with it!

I have some pdf documents which cannot be searched using Foxit so I assume I need to use an OCR capability. Does anyone know of a free OCR plugin or do I need to go for Foxit pro?

Edit: after digging around a bit I gather the "Tesseract" OCR engine (free) is used by most including Foxit pro I think. FreeOCR uses it as well.

Good morning everyone. I just installed foxit and was wondering how on earth to use it. I downloaded it to my download folder, scanned it with AVG, then when I double clicked it to open it and look at it, this message came on my screen that said..."this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel." What the heck is that?? I use Windows ME..IE 6.0...on a Dell. Different links that I go to say yes for ME, and some places say no for ME. I dunno.

Thanx a bunch for any help/advice you can offer.

I just got rid of Adobe Reader and downloaded Foxit Reader; WHAT A BAG OF WORMS.
Along with Foxit Reader came the Ask tool bar for what ever reason and loaded it into Firefox.
I lost Google as my home page. Used Revo and removed Ask any thing but it still stayed with Firefox.
Then I removed Foxit Reader with Revo and still no help it still is my search engine in Firefox and
I want Google. This is getting Layback Bear not so laded back. Then I used Ccleaner to remove all of
any thing I found with Ask and Foxit Reader, no help. Back to Revo and removed Mozilla Firefox and
downloaded Firefox fresh. Now things are working as they should be. I lost all my bookmarks and had to
reset all my colors ect. again. Yes I'm going back to using Adobe Reader.

The ASK toolbar and homepage change is presented to you during the install. Just uncheck the boxes to not use them and away you go.

I've been using Foxit reader for a while on my computer at home and it works great. Recently, I've installed it on my laptop and for an unknown reason, there's no way to reopen a page to the way it was before I closed it. I mean, if I ask to not see the bookmarks, by default, it always shows them to the left. On my home computer, the settings stay the way they are everytime I open a pdf document. Any ideas?

I stopped the install, went back to Filehippo and installed the version prior to this where I could decline the toolbar.

Thanks for the heads up.

Also I got the toolbar too, and I know I unchecked it when I installed.

One way around it is to download the zip version instead of the exe or msi versions, as the zip version doesn't need to be installed. With the zip version just download and unzip, place the unzipped exe wherever you want and run it once, then it will work anytime you open a PDF.

I have been using this program for about a year with no problems.  Tonight when I updated to the latest version from the official website, it tried to install conduit toolbar malware.  Luckily my antivirus caught it before it could work its full range of horrors on my browser, and I uninstalled it with malwarebytes and adwcleaner.  If you want to keep using Foxit, make sure that you don't use express install when updating.  Custom install gives you the option not to install the toolbar with no explanation beforehand.  HOW SNEAKY IS THAT?
As for me, I've already uninstalled Foxit, and will give PDF Xchange a try.  I hope I've helped someone avoid this terrible malware!

hi !

WARNING ABOUT FOXIT READER 4 !

"Foxit Reader has long been the most visible Windows alternative to Adobe Reader, but with its latest update, this popular freeware falters slightly. While the jump from version 2 to version 3 cut bloat while adding in a few features, version 4 adds some new features but also throws some unpleasant curveballs.

The setup process has grown more cumbersome. It will automatically check you into the Foxit license agreement, and you are also opted-in to install the Foxit Search Bar that changes your default search provider to Ask and makes Ask.com your home page. It also opts you into the Foxit add-on for Firefox, and into creating desktop, quick launch, and Start menu icons that link to eBay. Also, in our tests, it commandeered the default PDF reader setting even though we unchecked that box."

It was an update for this reader to be able to create pdf files. Well, it must have missed my eye and now each time I get an option to read a pdf file, it generally would start Foxit reader, but now cause of that update, that is all i get and am not for some reason able to read my pdf files anymore. When I do a search to see if I could download the older version, only this updated version appears. I could not find my original program cause the update must have overwritten it.

Verify the digital signature
Foxit Reader 4.2 now features a PDF digital signature verification technology which uses an enhanced, yet ISO 32000 compliant, verification process that ensures the signature is real and neither the document nor the signature have been compromised. This new verification process provides a secure and reliable platform for exchanging electronics documents without putting the user at risk from falsified documents.
Enhance security with ASLR & DEP support
Foxit Reader 4.2 continues to add features that increase security by making it harder for hackers to compromise a PDF document. The current version of the reader includes Address Space Layout Randomization, ASLR, which uses a random algorithm to determine a memory address used to store key file data. A second security feature is Data Execution Prevention, DEP, which simply prevents executing code from a non-executable memory location. ASLR and DEP combine to highly improve Foxit Reader Security and provide a stable platform for enterprise, business and consumer, Foxit Reader users.

Hello guys...

It was suggested I use Foxit instead of Adobe. For some reason, whenever I run Adobe Reader for a PDF, my computer slows way down. Adobe Updates take up my processing, and it was suggested that maybe my firewall is blocking it.

I uninstalled Adobe. But as most programs I buy seem to include Adobe as part fo their package, I would assume it is trustworthy.

Does anyone else here think I should use FOxit instead of Adobe?

it is a great feature since my laptop is not connected to the printer and i save the file on a disk and then insert it into my desktop.

By default, this program wants to take control of your computer. Its like a guest using your car then changing all the radio presets to his garbage metal music stations (my apologies if you go for that kind of music) and leaves the radio on and turned up really loud before giving you back the keys.This is borderline adware in my opinion. It seems to be alright as long as you uncheck all those boxes. I chose Advanced (custom) installation. I feel sorry for all the noobs (most people) though who would probably choose typical installation because it is recommended (software recommends you have adware on your computer) and they think advanced installation would be beyond they're level of expertise.I use it because I think its more light weight and better than adobe acrobat reader. But this is the second time I installed this and it really turned me off to seeing what it wanted to do. It almost made me reconsider using it. Perhaps next time I will try something else.

(By the way I no longer install any Adobe updates after the probs their last 2 updates caused and they recognised)

So if I dont use dial up, can I safely remove it from my laptop. The only time I receive calls whilst I am on the net, is through Skype

I had read that Adobe does "bloat" one's system and that Foxit Reader is better.

Any input or advice would be appreciated

Thanks in advance...
 

A:Is NetWaiting from Adobe & is Foxit Reader Better?

NetWaiting is not from Adobe, nor is it included in any Adobe downloads. In most cases it come pre-installed on a computer when it's bought or gets installed with a dial-up modem. Since it's for dial-up its not a new application nor would be it worth being packaged with Adobe or a new product as it wouldn't benefit more then a very small group pf users, toolbars are generally what are packaged with downloads. If you don't use it you can remove it.

Some people prefer Foxit because it's simpler, quicker, doesn't install any background services, and many have less operating issues with it; I find less printing issues in a network environment with Foxit as opposed to Adobe Reader. Foxit Reader comes bundled with the Ask Toolbar so it's not bloatware free either.

History.... When I first installed Foxit and then the FF plug in, everything worked as expected, so I uninstalled Adobe Reader. Everything still worked as it should. That's been a week or so ago. This evening I had occasion to view an online pdf document and here is what happened...

When I tried to open a .pdf document in a Firefox tab (v3.6.17), received the message "plug in has performed an illegal operation". Tried various fault isolation procedures (Reboot, start FF in Safe mode, reinstalled foxit plugin .fzip). Finally disabled my Firefox Preloader utility and was able to open pdf docs in a FF tab... Restarted FF Preloader and was still able to view pdf's online. Rebooted computer and everything still worked normally.

So although I do not still have the problem, I'm posting this to see if anyone has a clue about what happened.

3.3.1.0518

Security Enhancement
The New Foxit Reader has implemented a new screening process which protects end users from misleading messages embedded within the parameters of a pop-up dialog box. A pop-up dialog contains an area which is reserved for a message that is generated by the rendered PDF. Due to Foxit's concern that this message may mislead users to take an unadvisable action, Foxit Reader will no longer display the content of the message and removes any parameters within the Pop-up message that can be manipulated by the PDF.

I've not used Foxit before, so could you explain about those installation options. I see a .exe a .zip and a .msi file. Which one to use?

And, I expect that it is a 32-bit app. is that right?

I'm using Foxit reader 3.1.2.1013. A few things on at least one page of the pdf do not display on the screen and do not print. In this instance, the "missing" are measurements of a product.

If I open the same pdf with Adobe, the "missing" elements are both displayed and printed. This has happened on several pdf's over the past few years.

Is there a configuration or something else I need to do with Foxit reader to make it consistently display everything in the pdf?

Hi Everyone,

I am using FoxIt Reader (3.2.0.0303) a free PDF reader, similar to Adobe Reader.

Although the program is quite good at opening PDFs it is ignoring printer defaults. I have Windows XP set to print in Black & White (through Start --> Printers & Faxes) and every time that I print a PDF it is coming out in colour.

This strange behaviour is limited to FoxIt, other programs, such as Excel & Word are respecting the XP printer defaults.

If you have any ideas on how this can be fixed they will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,

Davo

If you already have a PDF file open and then you double-click another PDF file, it will be opened in the same window. The single document interface mode enables you to open multiple instances of Foxit Reader. Foxit Reader will create a new window when you double-click to open a new PDF file, which is very useful for viewing different files side by side. The multiple document interface mode sets multiple documents under a single parent window, as opposed to all windows being separated from each other (single document interface). In order to view a list of windows open in Foxit Reader, the user typically has to click on the Restore Down button at the top right corner of the Foxit Reader window.

Recently we received a number of inquiries regarding the latest Adobe vulnerability; people are concerned whether Foxit Reader is vulnerable to same kind of exploit. We have gathered enough technical information about that vulnerability and confirmed that Foxit Reader is NOT subject to same kind of exploits.

The Adobe vulnerability is caused by some buffer overflow issue within their JBIG2 decoder. Foxit uses our own JBIG2 decoder and it handles those malicious JBIG2 stream gracefully (empty image will be displayed instead of crashing).

More information regarding Adobe vulnerability can be found at http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/905281 or http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/33751.

Hello, we have recently purchased several HP Elitebook 1030 G1 notebooks. These come with Windows 10 out of the box, and no discs at all. HP seem to offer a Windows 7 recovery disc via drivers & downloads but this only seems to be for drivers and applications post-Windows 7 install. We still use Windows 7 (Enterprise x64) deploying via SCCM. As the laptop doesn't have a LAN port HP support suggested getting an HP USB-C to Ethernet adapter, but this doesn't seem to help with PXE boot. So moving onwards, I then attempted to do a manual install of Windows 7 x64 via USB. Initially it didn't even boot without turning off secure boot and turning on legacy boot. As the laptop has an M.2 ssd it is not even found by the setup process. I have now gone through adding sata and usb3 drivers via dism to boot+install wim's and also an MS hotfix for NVMe support (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941). Unfortunately after all this it is still not able to see the hard drive. Unless I am going blind I cannot see any information about this on HP Support.

3. Do a file search for Kazaa and delete all of the files that are found.
4. Backup the registry
5. Use Jv16 power tool to clean the registry.
6. If you want to and are brave enough, do a manual search for useless Kazaa keys in the registry (be sure to have a backup if you do this)
Reinstall the latest Kazzaa with all of its Spyware. (Perhaps you might want to try Kazaa Lite)

Hi, I hope someone out there can shed a little light on this situation as it's doing my nut in!

We have a network with 3 Windows 2003 servers and workstations all with XP. When the users log in a script runs which maps network drives and pushes printer connections etc. Also we have several group policies set which restrict pupils and staff in certain ways. Nothing drastic though. Just 'Cant see certain Control Pannel Items etc'.

Now all was working perfectly until a couple of weeks ago 2 staff members came to me and said "I can't get on the interenet or e-mail". I had a look and when they logged in on their normal computer it seemed to log in fine but then receieved a couple of "Cannot perform this action due to restrictions on effect on this computer" messages. This message also appears when they try to click on the Internet for example. On closer inspection it has run the scripts ok because I have the shared drives and printers. But the virus scanner which is sophos in our case hasn't loaded (it comes down from the server), also there is no All Programs in the start menu, or shut down.

If I log off and check the event viewer I have event 1030 there which refers to an error with group policy.

Now the most annoying problem is it appears completly random with it's timing. Usually a shut down and restart of the computer fixes it. Moving to another computer can also fix it. It dosent always do it on the same computers, other peolpe can log on to ... Read more

Is it just my imagination or has the attempts to begin communication on about ports 1025-1035 begun to rise?

Looking over data on this I really dont see its nominal importance other then the beginning of the road or bottom of the stairs to attempt throughput communication, if you will =)

Anyone else care to take a stab at this ?

Hi, I hope someone out there can shed a little light on this situation as it's doing my nut in!

We have a network with 3 Windows 2003 servers and workstations all with XP. When the users log in a script runs which maps network drives and pushes printer connections etc. Also we have several group policies set which restrict pupils and staff in certain ways. Nothing drastic though. Just 'Cant see certain Control Pannel Items etc'.

Now all was working perfectly until a couple of weeks ago 2 staff members came to me and said "I can't get on the interenet or e-mail". I had a look and when they logged in on their normal computer it seemed to log in fine but then receieved a couple of "Cannot perform this action due to restrictions on effect on this computer" messages. This message also appears when they try to click on the Internet for example. On closer inspection it has run the scripts ok because I have the shared drives and printers. But the virus scanner which is sophos in our case hasn't loaded (it comes down from the server), also there is no All Programs in the start menu, or shut down.

If I log off and check the event viewer I have event 1030 there which refers to an error with group policy.

Now the most annoying problem is it appears completly random with it's timing. Usually a shut down and restart of the computer fixes it. Moving to another computer can also fix it. It dosent always do it on the same computers, other... Read more

hi!

hello, first off i have scanned with adaware pro se, spybot, and h2, also mcafee antivirus and a couple of online scanners--this is what remains

i have some pesky files burrowed into my pooter, i am pretty sure the files in the temp folder are bad....but when i search for the executable, all i can find are prefetch files....i think the prefetch files are generating the temp files...

i have used msconfig to stop some files from statring,and that has stopped an error screen that displayed this message at start up everytime:

rundll egdhtml-1030 dll error

i reactivated them in msconfig for this logfile...

also- whenever i turn on the computer, it frezzes up after booting to windows, i found that killing all the rundll32.exe files make it able to run again!!!!!!

so they must be bad, too...

here is my log, thank you very much for any help!!

Hello, i have an HP Touchsmart 520-1030, and i wish to upgrade it with i3-3225 processor that i own. Tried to replace it with mine i3-2120, but pc just does not boot. Any way to upgrade bios to support ivy bridge processors? For now i have latest bios 7.12. I see the only difference between models that support ivy and not, is MB name Lavaca3SB[supports ivy] and LavacaSB[does not]. Is it the same mb and i can install Lavaca3SB's bios to mine LavacaSB board or this will not work that way?

These event just started appearing a day or two ago, but they continue to repeat every 5 minutes:

Event 1030:
Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Event 1058:
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=bbpi-pdc,DC=billsblue,DC=com. The file must be present at the location <\\bbpi-pdc.billsblue.com\sysvol\bbpi-pdc.billsblue.com\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the network path is correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off. If Windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network administrator. ). Group Policy processing aborted.
They occur exactly every five minutes, and always in this order. I searched for the gpt.ini file it's looking for and found it.

I don't really have any group policies in place, just basic users and computers. Nothing fancy. And I'm afraid I don't quite understand AD enough to just 'experiment' until I make these error go away.

Any ideas and/or guidance would be welcome.... thanks
 

A:Event 1030 & 1058, repeating. Guidance?

One possibility:
As per Microsoft: "This behavior may occur if the following conditions are true: your Windows XP-based computer is a member of a domain, and the Microsoft Distributed File System (DFS) client is turned off (disabled). To resolve this issue, turn on (enable) the DFS client". See M314494 to find out how to do this. Also check M810907 for a hotfix.

The video card in my Pavilion h8-1030 died and I need to find a replacement. If possible, I'd like to upgrade the card at the same time to the best possible card that would work on this system, within on total $350 budget. Being overly optimistic and with a big dose of wishful thinking I had actually ordered a MSO GeForce GTX 970 , but before it arrived I read that it will not work as teh BIOS version cannot be upgraded to version 8. So I am sending that card back as soon as it arrives. I am unable to buy a whole new computer at this time, so I'm going to have to settle for a new GPU (and PSU if needed). I don't game but I do use Adobe CC 2015 applications, mostly photoshop adn lightroom but ocasionally also premiere and in-design. Before failing the old card was struggling with certian photoshop functions and video editing was slow and frustrating. This is why I would like to upgrade the GPU. Motherboard H-RS880-uATX (Aloe)Processor AMD Phenom II X6 1090TMemory 10 GBBIOS, American Megatrends Inc. 6.12 Is there a list of compatible GPUs? Thank you ever so much for your help.

A:what Video Card upgrades are possible for Pavilion h8-1030?

Hi, The version 6 BIOS in your PC is not compatible with many of the newer graphics cards.  You will need to use an older legacy graphics card in your PC.  The processor and memory in your PC are more than sufficient for most use. I suggest that you look for a NVIDIA GTX 660 for around $226 new on Amazon. You can find the GTX 660 on eBAY for a lot less.  You will also need to replace the power supply. The Corsair CX650m should be around $55 after rebate.

First up, hello everyone.

I have XP computers connected to a SBS2003R2 domain that is posting 1030 Userenv errors in the eventlog. I've not checked them all but three of them definitely are, so we can presume they all are.

Through Userenv.log, I've wiggled it down to two variants of:

USERENV(314.480) 21:50:37:892 ProcessGPO: CheckFilterAcess failed for <CN={C94DA5DA-A892-44ED-B77D-618A143ED5CC},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=[domainname],DC=local>. Filter not found
Click to expand...

Followed by many of the following that correlate with the eventlog errors:

USERENV(318.868) 09:47:24:929 ProcessGPOs: GetGPOInfo failed.
Click to expand...

My question is - whereto from here? OUs, GPO and the such is on the edge of my knowledge. It seems that if I can find what GPO is failing, I'm there.
 

A:Eventlog 1030 and userenv GetGPOInfo failed

I would suggest since you are apparently having troubles with a Small Business Server that you ask to have this post moved to the Networking forum here at TSG. You will get a better response there. You can do this by clicking the little triangle at the top right corner of the window and ask a moderator to please move this thread to that forum

I noticed my wireless 1030 is acting strange after getting BSOD(not the cause of Wireless but it was solved)and now I'm experiencing some problems, here are the issue. I'm worried if it is the NIC card

1.like it takes a while to connect to a certain webpage then whenI looked up on Event viewer it stated in the lines of Google too long to respond DNS

2. sometimes the wireless would switch off by itself and when I try to reconnect to my home router it says "Cannot find my router* yet I can see it shows my wireless router is available then when I look up event viewer it states " NETBIOS over TCPIP has entered Stop state".

I would have to click on

*Troubleshoot Problems which then would let me reconnect back in the router*

3. I have been getting this new event viewer error 5060:
The description for Event ID 5060 from source NETwNs64 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:

A:I'm having wireless Issues with the Intel 1030,Turning off by itself

It almost sounds like a nic driver issue. Have you updated it recently? Try to update, or roll-back if update did not work.
Replacing your nic should not be to hard depending on your device. Usually the nic is the easiest of the add-on boards to get to. But, I really don't think it's the nic. Were you changing, installing, updating anything with your hardware, operating system when this happened? If driver update/rollback doesn't work, try a system restore if feasible.

Hi,

Please guide me how I can get a driver for my brother printer HL -1030 for Windows 7. I called Brother office in Canada and they say this printer is not compatible with Windows 7. Is there any other printer driver I can download and get my printer working.

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to use the XP drivers and install them in compatibilty mode.

Here's a link to the XP Home/Pro 32-Bit Drivers
Brother Solutions Center: HL-1030: Downloads: Others

To run the installer in compatibility mode:

Right Click Installer > Properties > Compatibility > Select the OS you want. (In this case, XP)

I'm trying to replace a faulty wireless card and I can't figure out for the life of me where to order a new one. 'HP Part Surfer' doesn't return anything. I'm also not entirely sure where the part number on the wireless card is, all I can really see that might be it is a 'PNOP' number.Thanks in advance!

Hi, Your machine was built before second half of 2014 therefore the chance to upgrade wireless card is very slim to none. There is a list on pp 6 and 7 of the following manual:           http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03099448.pdf You can use USB wireless adapter, this will cost you one USB port       http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/technology/networking/wireless-usb-adapters     (Note: much cheaper from other countries). Regards.
