What happens when Microsoft ends Windows 7 mainstream support


On January 13, 2015, Microsoft will stop mainstream support for Windows 7–which is still an extremely popular operating system. But you’ll still be able to use it safely for another five years.

Once mainstream support ends, there will be no more service packs. Microsoft won’t redesign the environment or add new features. Without a special extended agreement, you won’t get patches for bugs that don’t result in a security threat.

Vista mainstream support  ended on April 10, 2012. Extended support will end on April 11, 2017, so you can continue to use Vista for another two and a half years plus.

What Is The New Firefox Alternative


Pale Moon is, and will always be, completely FREE to download and use! (Freeware)

This browser, even though close to Firefox in the way it works, offers a different set of features than its sibling. For example, if you need accessibility features or integration of Windows’ parental controls, then Pale Moon may not be a good browser choice for you.

Pale Moon is an Open Source, Firefox-based web browser available for Microsoft Windows and Linux, focusing on efficiency and ease of use. Make sure to get the most out of your browser!

Why settle for a basic build of your Firefox browser on Windows Operating Systems when you can have one that performs 25% faster?

Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, while many Linux (“from scratch”) users get the advantage of a browser built specifically for their system. That needs to change! So, here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed out of your browser!

Of course, getting a faster browser is not just about optimizing the compilation process (building a program from its source code), but also about carefully choosing features and how to choose the best setup. This means that this browser, however extremely close to Firefox, does not have all the functions that Firefox has. A few, carefully selected, features have been disabled that are not in high demand, and that do not interfere with the way web pages are displayed or function; all to maximize speed and efficiency of the browser. Please see the page with technical details to learn exactly what the browser supports, and what it doesn’t support. In short, if you need accessibility features or parental controls, then please visit the firefox homepage and get the official, non-optimized build.

Pale Moon 24.6 has been released which is a major update overhauling parts of the graphics engine and addressing some long-standing issues with Gecko. More info in the release notes.

Minimum system Requirements (Windows):

  • Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Server 2003 or later
  • For Windows XP, the latest service pack is required. (XP SP3 or XP x64 SP2)
  • A processor with SSE2 support (see list of supported processors)
  • 256 MB of free RAM (512 MB or more recommended)
  • At least 50 MB of free (uncompressed) disk space

Who Is Amerisphere Software Technologies

From the desk of Gary M. Smith:AST_Me3

Yup, it’s the real me.

I thought its time to introduce myself. I am Gary Michael Smith.
Creator of Amerisphere Software Technologies (this web site).
I’m all over the Internet.
You can find my public social media accounts at nearly all the top web companies the Internet has to offer (links are at the end of this introduction).

I began pounding on the keyboard in 1999. Since that time, the technological knowledge of a computer
still can elude me. Having the ability to upgrade and troubleshoot nearly any machine, there is always
that one, the one which can reset all of the knowledge as if it wasn’t there.

And believe you me, it recently happened.

Case in point – the “System Administrator” was highjacked on this machine.

If you have and or currently experiencing this behavior, the best fix for it, is to re-install the entire
”Operating System” (OS). I’ll be honest, I was disappointed in myself, I wasn’t able to repair the highjacked machine for the unfortunate recipient.

After much research and troubleshooting the consensus rendered resulted in no fix.
The new “OS” wasn’t present. Oh, well. Until the day is here.

I quickly recovered and moved on to access my brains memory banks to get back any lost information
from the reset action which had occurred.

-step forward-

You know I came up with the solution after all. A clean install of the “OS” will and always is the best fix.

In 1999 my attraction to know computers was all consuming. I couldn’t get enough.
I had to know how a .gif worked, I had to know what memory (RAM) was, I had to know what was inside
an internal hard drive (HDD). So, I busted one. Took it apart and was amazed to see the deep impression made on the platter (disk surface). After may hours of focusing my attention towards the mechanical device and reading, I was now familiar with the basics on how a hard drive functioned.

To prevent this article from becoming very lengthy, let’s take another -step forward-

In the web of the world, “free” became my direction. I needed free program’s (computer software) to optimize my computer and fix any potential problems that may be slowing down the hardware and any file confusion with-in the “OS”.

What it boils down to –is- free.
I’m running this web site for free. It is my intention to give a free service (selective service) to the Internet. All technology news worth providing, if you follow me on twitter your company may be endorsed for free, via twitter. Software updates are important at all times, if I know of them, I will inform you via twitter. But, please keep in mind, I’m away from the computer often and may not post for hours. I’m currently working on a fix for that.

So, anyway. Here are the other places you can find me:
