If you already got Quantum (and why wouldn’t you, its awesome!) I’d recommend getting previous version of Firefox, such as this Sep 2017 release and install to different folder than your Quantum. Make sure to disable Firefox updates.
Get Opera portable browser, and install to folder on the desktop, you can delete it when finished or keep till next time. Video below page break will tell you how to add VPN. You’ll need to enable Chrome extensions with this addon.
Install Chrome if you do not have it, if you do, go ahead and install Windscribe extension. Video below has process outlined for major browsers.
I was setting up Surface for customer recently and came around this little gem.
Looks a bit overdone. MS Office Trial in every available language.

Virtual machines are blessing and can be useful for home users and professionals alike. Whenever I’m testing some new system configuration ideas, trying software or learning how to remove newest virus, I can do it without fear for my system. I get to check on niche OSes like Aros and Haiku without need for server farm in my room.

It’s back to Windows Virtual PC for me. Unfortunately Microsoft virtual machine doesn’t recognize disk images other than it’s native format. You can convert live drive to virtual disk but can’t import VMWare Workstation files which are in an open format. Good luck trying to find support on Microsoft website, their solutions aren’t helpful or are hidden behind dead links.
