Notes: Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser cache stores it. By doing this, the browser doesn’t have to retrieve new files (including any images) from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. You should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently.

A cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a website, that is then stored on a computer.

These files typically store user-specific information such as selections in a form, shopping cart contents, or authentication data. Browsers will normally clear cookies that reach a certain age, but clearing them manually may solve problems with websites or your browser.

A browser’s history is a log of sites that you visit. When you use a browser’s Back button, you are moving back one entry in the history log. Browsers will normally clear the history at regular intervals, but you may want to clear it manually for privacy.

How do I print an eBook?

Pryor+ members are given permissions to print and email pages in PDF format from most of the eBooks, but not all. Courses that offer email options, often have a cap of 59-99 pages per launch. Meaning you would need to launch the course a number of times to get the entire eBook. This design is to encourage users to only print or email the sections they find relevant.

Please see attachment for instructions.

Why am I receiving a "blocked content" or "unable to load page" error? (Browser Level)

These errors are typically caused by an organizations network security and firewall settings. Organizations are constantly making changes to improve the security of their network, and sometimes that means filtering the java script used to run certain videos.

We recommend contacting your companies IT Dept. to have them add the URL’s listed below to the companies trusted sites list.

Please note they will also need to completely clear all cache and cookie data, following these changes.

How to download a program file from a Dropbox link (on a PC).

Problem: You are having trouble launching or registering your product software, and are getting an error message such as “Application was not activated,” or simply seeing a blank dialog box when you attempt to launch the program after installation but before or after registration.

Solution: You are sent a link via email to download an unprotected version of the software from Dropbox. This unprotected version of the software may allow you to run the software as it bypasses common problems caused by interactions between our digital rights management software (DRM) and anti-virus programs, firewalls, and other occasional software interactions.

1. Left-click on the link in the email you received.

2. When the Dropbox page opens, click on either the Download button or on one of the named program links (such as excel2010-c01.exe in the image below).

Clicking the Download button gives you the option of saving all items in the folder as a .zip file or to a Dropbox folder if you have one.

Clicking a link lets you save that file to your local Downloads folder.

3. If you saved the items as a .zip file, you need to unzip the archive to a location of your choice. To do so, right-click the archive and select Extract All, or use an unzip utility you have installed to do so. If you saved the files individually to your Downloads folder and select then move the files to the destination of your choice on your computer.
NOTE: ALL files from a given program MUST be located in the same place for our programs to run properly (you can’t have the .exe file in one location and any other files or folders in another location).

Website Security

Encryption and Security
Why isn't my browser indicating locked?

SSL encryption ensures that transaction information is sent securely but has a significant performance trade-off in the browser environment. You may have noticed that our website employs frames for easier navigation and more efficient page updates. With this in mind, we selectively place SSL encryption only on those forms and frames that need to be encrypted (i.e., when the credit card information is requested). Since things like our navigation buttons and menus do not need to be slowed down by SSL, we do not employ it there.

Unfortunately, (but for obvious reasons) browsers will not show the safe “key” or “lock” unless each and every frame on the page is SSL encrypted. Thus, if only one frame is encrypted, the browser correctly reports that not everything you are looking at is “safe.” However, the absence of the “lock” or “key” does not mean that the information you are looking at is not encrypted.

You can verify that a frame is SSL encrypted by right-clicking within the frame and looking at the frame info or properties (i.e., found in the address bar on Chrome and the “File” menu in Internet Explorer). Doing this when the credit card information is requested will indeed show that this information is being sent encrypted and any security concerns you may have should be relieved.

What is SSL encryption?

To protect our members, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the credit card information you send when you place your order. The information is encrypted on your computer, sent through the Internet as scrambled code, and decoded on a secure server. It cannot be read in transit. SSL is the recognized industry standard worldwide for such sensitive transactions, making it safe for you to shop with a credit card on the Internet. Even banks transfer money and complete credit card transactions using this secure method.
