Speed up the speed of on and off:
When you turn off your computer, the system will send a message to running program and the remote server, telling them the system is shutting down and will begin to shut down until receiving the response from the system. How to make the system startup and turning off faster, we can set automatically end task, first find HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop, set the AutoEndTasks key value to 1; then under the key there is the branch which has a “HungAppTimeout”, set its value to “4000 (or less), the default is 50000; and finally find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControl, also set the value of WaitToKillServiceTimeout to “4000”; this setting will make your computer startup and shout down faster a lot.

Automatically shut down the unresponsive program:
Sometimes, Windows will prompts you that a certain program is stop responding, annoying, by modifying the registry we can make itself off, in HKEY_CURRENT_USER ——- Control Panel —— Desktop, set the value of AutoEndTask as 1, then log out or restart.

Speed up menu display speed:
In order to speed up the display menu, we can set the registry as the following way: find primary key “MenuShowDelay” in HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop, set it’s value to “0” bang! We can easily speed up the menu display speed.

Clear DLL files not being used in memory:
In the registry entry HKKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion, add an entry AlwaysUnloadDLL in the Explorer, the default value is set to 1. Note: setting the value from default to 0 means disable this feature.

Clear the “Add / Remove Programs” residual junks:
Open the Registry Editor, “Start” → “Run”, type regedit KHEY- endemic – machine \ software \ Microsoft \ window \ currentversion \ uninstall, all the list of programs of “Add / Remove Programs” are here, we just delete the primary key to the residual program. However, to remind everyone that we’d better make a backup before modifying the registry, in order to recover the registry when error occurs.

So far, the Amazon Fire Phone are hardly sold – even if the company’s crazy fans were all like to avoid buying the phones just like escaping from the plague.

A report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows that, although Amazon’s membership services are continuing to attract more users to join, but the tragedy is Fire Phone’ market share is still virtually zero.”
A report in the third quarter this year of consumer survey reveals the Amazon fire phone’s dismal sales, the survey is for 500 Amazon Prime members: no one holds a Fire Phone.

“Our data shows the poor performance of Amazon’s hardware sales.” Mike Levin is the co-founder of the above-mentioned research institutions, they released a report on Wednesday said, “In fact the Amazon Fire Phone’s market share is zero. On the contrary, there are nearly a quarter of Amazon customers either own a Kindle Fire tablet or Kindle electronic paper book reader, or both. there are 5% of Amazon customers have Amazon’s new set-top box. Although some previous data show that Amazon had sold several thousand Fire Phone, but 500 Amazon customers surveyed in this quarter indicates that no one bought this phone. “

Earlier reports said, the sales of Fire Phone was 35,000 units up in August, showing the difficulties of Amazon’s pushing hard on a new hardware device – even Amazon’s brand appeal is still difficult to make a hit. The problem should be blamed to the bleak Amazon App market behind mobile phones- even a strong marketing strength can not make consumers ignore this fact – Fire Phone is just a brick without enough App, plus a staggering high price and the awful user feedback, Fire Phone is meant to be a fail.

Join together and clean malware on the Web! Let’s get started, NOW, until it’s too late!

The FBI has developed an internal malware-analysis tool, somewhat akin to the systems used by antimalware companies, and plans to open the system up to external security researchers, academics, orgs and others.

The system is known as Malware Investigator and is designed to allow FBI agents and other authorized law enforcement users to upload suspicious files. Once a file is uploaded, the system runs it through a cluster of antimalware engines, somewhat akin to the way that Virus Total handles submissions, and returns a wide variety of information about the file. Users can see what the detection rate is among AV engines, network connection attempts, whether the file has been seen by the system before, destination and source IP addresses and what protocols it uses.

The portal, launched in August, is available to law enforcement officials right now, but Jonathan Burns, an FBI agent who works on cybercrime, said in a talk at the Virus Bulletin conference here last week, that the FBI is developing a separate portal for outside experts. That system will allow security researchers and others to upload suspicious files they’ve collected and get correlation information and any other data the FBI has on them or related files.

“We are essentially in this to collect samples. The more we can provide tools out to law enforcement and industry to fight cybercrime, the more we’re helping the government fight cybercrime,” Burns said. “This is a collection tool for the FBI.”

Right now, Malware Investigator is able to analyze Windows executables (NOTE: Typically, they include adware, spyware, hijackware, (semi-) fakealert/ security software, (potential) scareware and the likes), PDFs and other common file types. But Burns said that the bureau is hoping to expand the portal’s reach in the near future.

“We are going to be doing dynamic analysis of Android files, with an eye toward other operating systems and executables soon,” he said.

Burns emphasized that private users of Malware Investigator won’t have to share any personal information in order to use the portal.

“You don’t have to share anything you don’t want to. No one will know who you are unless you want them to,” he said.
