Well, a funny thing happened on the way to this forum. I have been extolling the virtues of Maxthon as a browser of late. I was originally only running the Portable Apps version & needed a really fast browser, with some functionality, primarily for our work laptops. Now, the last time I used Maxthon was some years ago & I really liked it except for its lack of decent adblocking. This has now been drastically improved & it even has an 'Opera style' content blocker. I decided to download the regular Maxthon browser so I could spend more time to get familiar with it without turning my thumbdrives into toast due to excessive use. Everything was fine on the first day, the second day I ran the portable to change some settings I had learned & after removing it from the computer I started the standard Maxthon. It opened to be basically the vanilla uncustomised version, all of my bookmarks & settings had gone. After re-booting the PC & re-installing Maxthon from its installer, with no success, I decided to uninstall it. At first I thought it may be something to do with the portable being run. Although I have a feeling this happened to me with Maxthon once before, a long time ago, & also before I ever used portable apps. The portable versions still run perfectly fine. I had a thought that I may be more successful copying one of my portable versions of Maxthon to my Local Disk (C Drive) in the program files. Anyway, to cut a long story slightly shorter, does anyone run any kind of portable application (especially Portable Apps) on their C-Drive? Is it possible & if so, which ones do you use?
