Windows 10

Like other Win 8.1 users I've received a notification from Microsoft of the forthcoming Free Upgrade to Windows 10 and inviting me to reserve my upgrade which is being released on 29th July. It will be installed automatically unless I cancel my reservation. Since it comes with a new browser built in...

Re: Windows Security Alert

Courtesy of Google I came across other non-AB users experiencing a similar problem which was attributed to a combination of Win 8.1, IE 11 and Flash Playe which comes bundled with Win 8 and 8.1. This seems to reinforce my experience as the Security Alert apperas on new pages and/or links from existi...

Here it is:

Done that. Still makes no difference.
Is it worth completely uninstalling AB using Revo Uninstaller after saving my AB profile and then re-installing afresh and adding my current AB Profile?

I made several changes to the Key location and string settings based on both your and MysteryFM's comments and correcting my "Windows NT 6.2" to "Windows NT 6.3" error and none worked. After trying yours again as shown above it has still not corrected the problem. This is now the Registry Entry http...

I tried that earlier with the correct string value and it didn't work, then MysteryFCM changed the key location prior to his last posts and that didn't work leading to his conclusion that "It's likely there's no way of forcing Avant to use the UA it is supposed to. I've dropped a note to the develop...

I used this
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko
but that made no difference. I'm just guessing here!

And when you visit that site with IE? windows NT 6.2 stands for windows 8 I guess you will see 6.3 when you visit it with IE. 6.3 stands for windows 8.1 "Your User-Agent String Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; MASMJS; rv:11.0) like Gecko Your User-Agent string is 76 characters."

Visit this site: http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx and see if gives any lines in yellow and follow the steps. No yellow lines Also, can you post your UA strings (Avant & IE stand alone)) here? So we can compare them. "Your User-Agent String Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) l...

I'm using Ultimate with this build but previously always used Lite. Switch back to Lite?

No. Same message "Your PC has Windows 8 but the info on this page is about Windows 8.1. Update to Windows 8.1 for free (this last bit is a clickable link).
