5 Handy applications for your portable antimalware kit

  1. McAfee Stinger: This well-known portable application by McAfee, updated several times a week, may help quickly solve tricky situations. It should always be present in your kit.

5 Quick Mac tricks that will turn you into a speed demon

  1. Quick look a file content: Press SPACEBAR while clicking a file and you'll automatically see its content. It's the same as right-clicking the file and selecting Quick Look but much faster (one stage instead of two).
  2. Drop a file on an application icon to open it: It comes in handy when you need to open a file with an application different from the default (e.g. you need to open an image with Photoshop to edit it).

Essential apps and tips for a more secure Internet browsing

Internet is a very insecure place these days.

The list of cyber threats lying out there in wait for you is constantly growing and doesn't include only malware and hackers trying to steal your identity.

In fact, legitimate companies, Internet marketers and spammers try to track your surfing activities and your likings, to target you with specific emails and pop-up ads.

This forms a serious threat to your security and your privacy, but there are tools allowing you to counter and block tracking cookies and scripts.You can also make your browsing experience safer by following some more general tip.

How to think like a hacker

Last Update: 4/27/2017

I'm a hacker sitting in a dark cyberpunk room looking for suckers like you.

You hear about a security breach and you blame it on hackers.

Whose fault is if your password is 123456? Whose fault is if you are so lazy when it comes down to protect your money and your information?

The truth is you deserve to get screwed. I worked hard to learn all I needed to know, sacrificed hours, days and years of my life to learn how to use my full power.

How to automatically shutdown your computer when you want

NOTE: The procedure I'm about to explain requires you to have administrative privileges on your PC.

Years ago, when I commuted for 150 km back and forth every day and I needed to leave at a certain time for me to get the train home, this trick saved me a lot of time and hassles.

Have you ever stared at a computer screen, cussing because Windows takes forever to shut down? How about those times when some applications won't close, causing the shutdown to abort or delay?

In my opinion, technology must be at your service and not vice versa, so I found an easier way to get this done.
