About GeekUninstaller and its author
 
My name is Thomas Koen. Being a software developer I spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen. And that is why I really care about my software
tools. I'm quite picky and I have strong opinions how my tools should work. Chances are you are similar to me.
 
Geek Uninstaller is a simple but powerful utility. It's written using Visual C++ 2013,
TinyXML
 and
Boost.
 
Geek Uninstaller Pro
 
Pro version of GeekUninstaller is called
Uninstall Tool
 and it's developed by CrystalIDEA Software company based on my code.
 
“The performance of Geek Uninstaller is impressive. It uninstalls quickly and finds leftover files that anyone couldn't. Overall, the app is an impressive
maintenance tool that delivers on both performance and features. Highly recommended.”
– Lewis Leong, Softonic.
“The bottom line is that Geek Uninstaller is a nice tool that can be quite useful. Inexperienced users shouldn’t have any troubles while working with this
program, thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity.”
– Ana Marculescu, Softpedia
“Geek Uninstaller is perfect for anyone who wants to make sure they leave nothing behind on their system when they uninstall a program.”
– CNET
“Geek Uninstaller is both portable and supports almost all the features anyone would expect from an uninstaller tool. Perfect for flash drives because
it's a single file that takes up very little space.”
– Lifewire
“I've gotten so sick of using several different uninstallers just to be able to manage both my 32 and 64-bit applications. Not only did they not work as
well as I would like, most of them were bloated with all kinds of unnecessary features which I did not want. Geek Uninstaller is the perfect uninstaller
for me. The UI is simple and perfect, and uninstalls are fast and accurate. I just wish I had found this sooner, as I finally got fed up with the other
free 64bit uninstall app and caved and purchased a Revo Pro license just one week ago... I like your program so much that I used it to remove Revo Pro
after I installed it, lol.”
– John J.
“I've used other uninstallers before (i.e. Revo Uninstaller and others), and your product beats them hands-down. It's so easy to use, and I've never had
a problem, as I did with Revo, with programs not populating the uninstall list. I install and uninstall software quite regularly, and GeekUninstaller has
definitely made my life easier, not to mention my PC much cleaner. Thanks again for the excellent product.”
– Mike
“I just want to say thank you very much for developing such a wonderful piece of software. I recently have used Revo Uninstaller and IObit Uninstaller,
except they weren't so pleasing to use. Revo Uninstaller wouldn't list all my programs and IObit Uninstaller got rid of too much, causing other program
conflict. So, in short...I gave up on using uninstallers period, until I downloaded GeekUninstaller. You literally have created something way better than
the competition....And I just want to say thank you for that. I have already started recommending your product to friends and family. Good job you have
done here, keep up the great work.”
– Steve D. CA
“I've tried a ton of uninstallers over the years. Geek Uninstaller is, hands down, the finest uninstaller I've ever seen. Simple, extremely effective,
easy and gets the job done. Congrats.”
– Anders Holm Lauritsen, Denmark

Hi Adrian,

 

Sorry for the late reply, pleased the recommendation of Geek uninstaller was helpful. The program itself is a really small portable program, as such it doesn’t actually install anything on your machine, you can just run it whenever you want by just launching the exe file. this is handy, since I have a copy  of geek on a memory stick/USB drive so can run Geek directly from that  on any machine just from the USB drive. You mentioned one program you tried to delete that it only gave you the option to  upgrade that program, rather than delete it. I’ve not had that happen before, but if you ever get that again Geek uninstaller has a force removal option too. you can access this with the shortcut key ‘shift and delete’, I actually haven’t used this function before as haven’t needed it, but I think could come in  handy for those types of programs that have been created in a way to make removal difficult.

Hi,

 

I hope this isn’t straying off topic, but Brian recommended uninstalling using Revo Uninstaller. I agree with him , whenever I uninstall anything from my PC I always use a third party uninstaller to ensure it removes all traces of the program as the windows installer often leaves behind  a lot of unneeded files. I personally use Geek uninstaller (which is free). I’ve used Revo Uninstaller in the past, and although it was accessible I found it wasn’t the easiest to navigate with a screen reader, which is why I use geek, it works well with jaws and is really simple to use, when it opens you are in an edit field where you can type the name of the program you want to uninstall or press escape for a full list of programs currently installed on your machine. I do have to confess though I haven’t used Revo Uninstaller for a long time, so it’s possible they might have improved accessibility since I last used it.

New American Bible: The Leading Catholic Resource for Understanding Holy Scripture 

by Harper Bibles
The New American Bible revised edition is more than a mere Bible translation. Authorized by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine and approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the New American Bible seeks to provide the best resource for understanding the church's sacred Scripture. To begin with, the translation beautifully and accurately conveys the word of God in English, using the most recent scholarly resources available and translating directly from the original languages. While the Bible plays a central role in the church's life, it is also important to remember that it is an ancient book written over several centuries. It carries a rich tradition of interpretation over even more centuries. That is why the many scholars and church teachers who worked years on this project did more than provide a clear and accessible translation; they also sought to provide additional help and guidance for those who truly want to understand what they are reading: Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction, providing the historical context of the work, its literary style, its main themes, its use in the history of the church, as well as an outline of the contents. As you read the Scriptures, notes have been provided at the bottom of the page offering explanations for particular passages, terms, and concepts. Since Scripture often refers to itself, a system of cross-references are provided so you can see where else historical figures, particular stories, or similar concepts are also treated in the Bible. At the end of the Bible, sixteen pages of color maps are provided to help orient the Bible's stories in their geographical context.

Re: Using excel with Jaws question

I’m so glad you asked the question. I occasionally need to do similar steps and never thought about there being a shortcut to do it. I’ve generally fiddled with turning on filters or such to move through the column data, but this is so much better. This is the great thing about this list!

Excellent!!!!

 

I just tried it and it is great…  I work in computer security and end up trolling through server logs etc and when looking at transactions and wanting to jump to the next IP address and their transactions I was using the old down arrow approach and it drove me insane.

 

This little trick is exactly what I was looking for when I sent my email this morning.

 

Just to let you all know the control spacebar for selecting the column also works with the control shift backslash item.

 

Thanks again and have a good evening.

Just about done for the day here.

Chris was close. He wrote backspace, but he should have written back-slash.  I just did it for the first time and got it working with both a column of numbers and with a column of two-letter state abbreviations.

to summarize,

1, hit control shift down arrow.; this selects all the contents of the column from where you are to the next blank cell in the column. 

2. Now hit Control Shift backslash   Excel move focus to the next different value.  Note that the cells below this are still selected.

I have the keystroke that you are needing.

 

Ok, hold down the control and shift. Do not let go of theese 2 keys. Now while holding down these keys, hit down arrow, do not hold down the down arrow, just press it. wait a second, then hit the backspace key. The backspace key is normally above the enter key.

 

Each time you press the backspace key, it will jump to the next different value in the column.

 

I have tested this and it does work.

e.g. say it is a list of ip addresses from a server log.  I am on the first ip, I don’t know how many times this ip shows up before it changes to the next ip address.

 

Hopefully that explains what I’m wanting to do.

If you remember what that sell value was, after you sort it, could you then do a find with control F and type in that value? Or copy that sells value to your clipboard and then do your control F and paste the amount in the find field.

Re: Geek Uninstaller

Hi,

 

@Adrian, pleased the force removal shortcut might come in handy. Like I said I think it’s a great product which works well with screen readers. I like that at the end of uninstalling a program it lets you know if it detected any leftover program traces, then gives you the option to delete them. honestly I’ve been amazed by just how many unnecessary program traces are left behind  when you do a standard windows uninstall. Thanks for changing the subject line, sorry I should have done that in my last post.

Hi all, hope you are doing good during the laststage of Summer. I'm sending this email just want to ask a question. 

Recently I have been experiencing this issue from my laptop. Every time when I turn the capslock on using Jaws and the keyboard layout is laptop layout it also activated several other modifier keys like Ault and CTRL. This is ticking me off and I'm about to have at it. 

Is The issue only occured when I have Jaws enabled. and the keyboard is laptop layout  and when I turn on the capslock key and other modifier keys turned on at the same time. When I turn the capslock on, I only pressed the Capslock key 

I hope y'all can help me with this regard.

While composing E mail messages in Windows Live Mail Jaws will not back space or delete and the only way I have found to cure this is to unload Jaws and restart it.  Using the latest version of Jaws and the latest version of WLM the one with the ribbon menus. This doesn’t happen all the time but often enough to be irritating. It is not happening on this particular message.  Tom

Is quick books accessible with JAWS? When I worked with it years ago, it was pretty manageable. Is it still?

Thx,

thanks again, Paul. I’ve changed the subject line for relevance, which I meant to do the first time. The shortcut will come in useful, and I see your point about the convenience of the program being contained in a file.

Hi Adrian,

 

Sorry for the late reply, pleased the recommendation of Geek uninstaller was helpful. The program itself is a really small portable program, as such it doesn’t actually install anything on your machine, you can just run it whenever you want by just launching the exe file. this is handy, since I have a copy  of geek on a memory stick/USB drive so can run Geek directly from that  on any machine just from the USB drive. You mentioned one program you tried to delete that it only gave you the option to  upgrade that program, rather than delete it. I’ve not had that happen before, but if you ever get that again Geek uninstaller has a force removal option too. you can access this with the shortcut key ‘shift and delete’, I actually haven’t used this function before as haven’t needed it, but I think could come in  handy for those types of programs that have been created in a way to make removal difficult.

Paul,

Thank you for this tip. I downloaded the file and experimented.

 

I noted in one case where I thought I’d delete a program, it offered, instead, to update it. No removal option. I went through the update process and decided not to remove for now. In another instance, it did remove an unwanted program.

 

Query: the Geek.exe file doesn’t create a recognized program or a desktop icon, or did I miss a step?

Hi,

 

I hope this isn’t straying off topic, but Brian recommended uninstalling using Revo Uninstaller. I agree with him , whenever I uninstall anything from my PC I always use a third party uninstaller to ensure it removes all traces of the program as the windows installer often leaves behind  a lot of unneeded files. I personally use Geek uninstaller (which is free). I’ve used Revo Uninstaller in the past, and although it was accessible I found it wasn’t the easiest to navigate with a screen reader, which is why I use geek, it works well with jaws and is really simple to use, when it opens you are in an edit field where you can type the name of the program you want to uninstall or press escape for a full list of programs currently installed on your machine. I do have to confess though I haven’t used Revo Uninstaller for a long time, so it’s possible they might have improved accessibility since I last used it.

I've never had this happen with the Google Chrome browser, nor seen it reported elsewhere.   If you've done a complete uninstall and reinstall, and that has not fixed the issue, the only thing I could recommend is using something like Revo Uninstaller, after having done the regular uninstall for Chrome, then trying to install again.

These days, there are so many Chromium-based browsers that if you like Chrome you can transition to virtually any of them without even noticing you have.  New Edge and Brave are both good options, and there are others.

Alternatively run the Jaws installation file again. If the problem persists even after a repair I think you need to run Jaws in default mode.
There is a command for this which somebody else may have to help with as I am on my Mac as my Windows machine has gone off for repair but it is something like go to the run menu with windows R andusing Narrator  type Jaws /default
