Recently, we discovered that a relatively popular âanti-malwareâ product known as âYet Another Cleanerâ or YAC for short, has been claiming to be an affiliate of Malwarebytes in addition to using a lot of our detection names as their own. We looked deeper into their operation and found some pretty amazing and ugly things.
My better half has a Samsung GT-S7560M, Android version 4.04.
It canât be upgraded, it is incapable of accepting most of the available games around these days, and is really only good for a contacts list and basic calling. I have an aging flip phone which is every bit as useful.
Neither the Samsung or the aging LG will ever be better than they were three months after initial purchase, but to replace either would cost $$$.
Google havenât supported 4.04 for ever in real terms and now Google Chrome loses support. If this was Microsoft, there would be wall to wall lawsuits.
If there is another phone purchase in this household, it will be a Windows phone. Nuts to Google and Android..
The Quick access page is the shortest route to files you’ve been working on and folders you often use. These are your frequent folders and recent files.
Recent items is a list of the files that you have used or opened recently. These items are displayed as “Recent files” in Quick access, and under “Recent” in jump lists for icons on the taskbar.
Frequent places is a list of folders, websites, etc… that you have opened recently. These items are displayed as “Frequent folders” in Quick access, “Frequent places” under File in File Explorer, and under “Frequent” in jump lists on the taskbar.
When you hide a file or folder from Quick access, the file or folder will no longer show in all recent and frequent locations in Windows 10 until you stop hiding them.
This tutorial will show you how to hide a specific file or folder from the Quick access page to no longer show in all frequent and recent locations for your user account in Windows 10.
One of the most often ignored extensibility point in Web Forms is the Control Builder. Control Builders are subclasses of ControlBuilder (or other more specialized, such as FileLevelPageControlBuilder, for pages, or FileLevelMasterPageControlBuilder, for master pages) that can be specified per class. It controls some aspects of a control instance:
Whether or not it allows blank spaces inside its declaration (AllowWhitespaceLiterals);
If a closing tag is required (HasBody);
What is the type of its markup-declared child controls (GetChildControlType);
If the control supports code blocks (HasAspCode);
It also allows overriding a couple of things:
The parameters specified in the markup (Init);
What to do when the control builder is added to a parent control builder (OnAppendToParentBuilder);
Modify the code that will be generated in the code-behind class that is produced by ASP.NET or the code that will be used to instantiate the control (ProcessGeneratedCode);
Change the tag’s inner textual content (SetTagInnerText);
This is a powerful mechanism, which has even been used to allow generic control classes. We apply a control builder through a ControlBuilderAttribute (for regular controls) or FileLevelControlBuilderAttribute for pages, master pages or user controls.
Init let’s us do things such as:
And ProcessGeneratedCode, messing with the generated page class:
But also something MUCH more fun! Imagine you are using an IoC container – I will use Unity, but you can use whatever you want. We might have something like this in Application_Start (or whatever method spawned from it);
Notice I am using the Common Service Locator to abstract the IoC container and to make the code independent of it. Here, I am assigning a static instance to the MyControl type, in essence, a singleton.
Now, we can change our control builder so as to have the control build method return this instance:
In case you didn’t notice, what this does is, every time the MyControl control is instantiated in a page, for every request, ASP.NET will always return the same instance!
Now, I am not saying that you SHOULD do this, but only that you CAN do this!
Take care out there…
All the best!

What is Local Temperature?
The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Local Temperature is adware. These adware applications display advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing.
When you click/tap on the clock system icon on the taskbar in Windows 10, a clock and calendar dialog will open.
Windows 10 Technical Preview 9926 includes a new clock experience, but has not been enabled by Microsoft yet.
The default (old) clock is the same as in previous Windows that displays a basic calendar and up to three clocks. This would be one clock for the local time, and up to two additional clocks for different time zones.
The new clock has a modern design that uses larger characters and spacing to make using with touch easier. It doesn’t display additional clocks for now. However, you can click/tap on “Additional clocks” to open to World Clock in the Alarms apps for the local clock and up to two additional clocks for different time zones.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the new tray clock and calendar experience for all users in Windows 10.
In build 9926, there is no provision to access Windows Update via Control Panel. All you get is a section in âSettingsâ which allows for âautomatic updateâ or ânotify before installingâ
Supposing that there is a hardware device driver in there that constantly produces a blue screen and a reboot. How are you supposed to stop the update? The simple answer is that you canât..
.. UNLESS you take steps to bring back the âclassicâ Windows Update to Control Panel.
The scenario was basically this. Windows Update kept trying to install a Qualcomm update that my Toshiba Netbook didnât seem to like, and I had no way of hiding the update. So, every time it tried to install it, the Netbook crashed out. Not good.
So, how to get over the problem. One way is to re-introduce the Windows Update function, and there are a couple of registry keys which do this.. see below..
IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled = 0
UxOption = 0
If you donât like the idea of messing in registry, you can get the pre-built REG file form here and just run it.. http://goo.gl/cbkc2y
By the way, it is not just Qualcomm drivers which are failing. There is a whole host of users having problems with all sorts of hardware driver updates.
Another point is that it could mark the end of driver support for older hardware in Windows 10, and to this end I have ordered a newer dual band Wi-Fi adapter for the Toshiba, an Intel Link 5300 AGN 450mbps type. Currently, it has a Qualcomm AR9285 (150mbps), also known as an AR5B95-H adapter.
Unfortunately, Toshiba sometimes block hardware that they donât supply as part of OEM builds, but you will get to here what happens next as soon as I get and try it..
Your screen(s) can get cluttered if you have a lot of opened app windows. Aero Shake lets you quickly minimize all opened windows except the current active window by shaking its title bar. Shaking the title bar again will restore all the minimized windows.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Aero Shake for specific or all users in Windows 10.
I did a test similar to this a while back. Mine wasnât quite as cool as this one, maybe only one screenshot, and nothing like as much text, but lots of text is not my style.
The link takes you to the story about what happens if you go for freeware.. See here..
I am not going to say much here either. I just want to bring it to your attention.
Every time that I come up against download managers when looking for a simple utility, I turn back and look for something else or a site that allows the download of a utility without the crapware that download managers more often that not include.
Majorgeeks is one of my favourites because they donât employ download managers. Of course, some cases like the YTD video downloader donât need to include other stuff because in this case, it IS the damage.
Freeware can be ok as long as you are alert to the dangers and are not put off by greyed out buttons on download sites.
Be vigilant. Computers need vigilant users..

The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer’s processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The benefits of using a 64-bit operating system are most apparent when you have a large amount of random access memory (RAM) installed on your computer, typically 4 GB of RAM or more. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. To run a 64-bit version of Windows, your computer must have a 64-bit-capable processor.
This tutorial will show you how to determine if you are running a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) version of Windows 10 on your PC.
We’ve been suffering from an issue where PDF files will ‘hold’ the folder open and we can’t rename folders when we want to.Â In googling up the problem, we aren’t alone.
This appears to be the fix at this time — mind you — we’ve seen this on any version of servers and any version of workstations so it doesn’t appear to be related to any particular SMB version.
Turn this off by going to ORGANIZE > FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTIONS >VIEW (tab) … and then tick “Always show icons, never thumbnails“. Click Apply/OK and you’re done.
Security researchers have traced the theft of customer data from health insurer Anthem’s data systems to a professor at a Chinese university with links to a defense contractor. A new open-source intelligence analysis of the breach of health insurer Anthem has reinforced theories that the data theft leads back to a Chinese espionage program, security firm ThreatConnect stated on Feb. 27. In the report, which is based on public sources or “open-source” intelligence, security researchers at ThreatConnect and other companies found technical evidence that linked the malware reportedly used in the Anthem attack to a Chinese espionage group and a professor at Southeast University, which works with a government contractor, Beijing Topsec Technology Co.

Microsoft customers with Surface Pro (original) and Surface Pro 2 have reported that the hardware button that controls the volume level on their tablet stops working after installing the latest Wacom Feel-It driver.
If you have a Surface Pro or Surface Pro 2 (not the Pro 3) and your volume button no longer works, and you’ve recently installed the 721.21 Wacom driver, this could be the cause of the problem. If youâve upgraded over an older version of the Wacom driver, you can roll back the driver in device manager, reboot, and this should resolve the problem. If you didnât install a previous Wacom driver, head over to http://us.wacom.com/en/support/legacy-drivers/ and install the 720-10 driver.
Select Tablet PC and download the 7.2.0-10 driver, restart, and you should be good to go.

This one also displays advertisements.
Paying security researchers to privately identify areas of vulnerability helps strengthen security overtime and this is a good investment process for Facebook given its huge user base
Thereâs no doubt that Facebook has a problem with malware, spam and cybercrime on its pages. However, it has gone to great lengths to combat these issues with its bug bounty program, which pays individual security researchers and experts who uncover problems with the site. And according to a recent report on the program from Facebook, itâs only getting bigger and better. Facebook has paid out $3 million to researchers around the world since the site started its bug bounty program in 2011. However, $1.3 million of that came in 2014 alone. That total was paid to 321 researchers in 123 countries for an average prize of $1,788. Overall, submissions increased by 16 percent from 2013 to 2014. India reported the most issues, followed by Egypt and the United States.Â âReport volume is at its highest levels, and researchers are finding better bugs than ever before,â Facebook wrote in its post announcing the 2014 results. âWeâve already received more than 100 valid reports since the start of the new year.â
