Re: Be careful where you click

So what was the big difference between PSI 2 and 3? This is going to sound familiar. They drastically changed the UI, took out some of the features, and added some new bugs. Only thing to figure out now is which flavor of Linux I want to install. Decisions decisions decisions..... I'm leaning stron...

Add To Bookmarks Broken

I just discovered that with build 112 the RMC > Add To Bookmarks is broken. When you click it, absolutely nothing happens. If I need to save a bookmark, I have to go to the site with IE8 (not Avant). I didn't have this problem with build 110. Just something else that's broken in Avant.... :thumbdown...

Firefox & Roboform

Mbrazil, when you installed roboform, did it automatically add itself to Avant's Firefox engine or did you have to do it manually? I have NEVER had it work under Avant's Firefox. I'm thinking that I have to set Avant to use Firefox as the default before installing roboform, but then I wonder if that...

Re: Mysteriously self-opening new tabs

It's the three options on the re-open window: reopen.png I found that there was a check-mark on one of the settings in the re-open pop-up window. If the check-mark is on one of the three options, you can set it here: Avant browser options> home page. The three options come from the home page settin...

Re: Be careful where you click

I hear you. I much preferred Secunia PSI 2.x to 3.x. After a few version 3.x releases, I got fed up and went back to 2.0 (it's actually 2.0.0.4003), and it's still working fine for me. It's available at http://secunia.com/PSI2Setup.exe, if you're interested. Counting Avant, at least four programs t...

Re: Mysteriously self-opening new tabs

As an edit to this, I found that there was a check-mark on one of the settings in the re-open pop-up window. I don't know how it got checked. I looked all through the Options tabs and couldn't find it, but it shows up on the pop-up window anyhow.... 1.png One of the three options ? You can set it h...

Re: Mysteriously self-opening new tabs

I never had this problem before until a week or so ago, out of the blue. When I exit with tabs open, I have Avant set to ask if I want to re-open them the next time Avant is run, and now I get an about:blank page opened along with the pages that were reloaded. As an edit to this, I found that there...

Re: Ybrowser High CPU Utilization

I have noticed that since MS's last update that anytime I clicked on a url, or opened a web page, or if the system made any contact with the internet, that one of the SVCHost.exe's running in the background would take up anywhere from 80 to 97% of my CPU for about 10 to 15 seconds (Thanks to Process...

I read that it's also a memory and startup manager, and I've already got commercial software that does that now.

Re: Improve Video Playback

My biggest problem is an excess of Avant.exe and ybrowsers open in the background eating up CPU cycles and memory. I'll exit Avant and it will close all the ones that it needed, and only then can I see the ones that were hung up in memory. Then I have to go to RMC> Kill Task for each and every one t...

Re: Optimizing Firefox (gecko) Engine

This could usually happen if you have modified hosts file, which has many entries and large size (200+KB). As MysteryFCM said, it is recommended to keep DNSClient service stopped and disabled, and should fix all problems related to it. Thats why i try to have all the services i can (the ones that i...

Re: Optimizing Firefox (gecko) Engine

Disabling the DNS Client is the best way of dealing with it. Start > Run, type: services.msc Locate DNS Client and right click, then select Properties Click Stop, and set its Startup Type dropdown to "Disabled" Click Apply > OK I'm already ahead of you, I didn't disable it, changed it to manual.

Re: Power out leading to weird Avant

This is why I stress to everyone to buy a UPS (or other brand) of battery backup for your computer. When my power goes out, my computer just keeps on going, for up to 14 minutes, giving me plenty of time to save and shut down the computer. Now I have an automatic emergency generator that powers up t...

Re: Download Videos

Since build 108 I've noticed some strange behavior with downloads and GetRight. Lot of times if I click on a download link, like a .exe file and even .pdf's. AvantBrowser will open it in a new page with all the machine code displayed and won't let GetRight (or my .pdf reader, PdfXchangeViewer) catch...
