    Hello bmo, Can you Please tell me what these 2 RAR files are as I can get it and make sure you don't have a problem getting it.

  8. How to restart Explorer.exe to fix a frozen desktop Start Menu, File Explorer and more on Windows 10 If taskbar, Start menu, or File Explorer stop responding, then try restarting the Windows Explorer process On Windows 10, "Windows Explorer" (Explorer.exe) is the process responsible for starting and displaying most of the user interface (UI), including the desktop, taskbar, Action Center, Start menu, and File Explorer. Usually, the process can work without a glitch for a long time, but eventually one or more of its elements could break causing Windows 10 to freeze or stop responding entirely, leaving you unable to open the Start menu or interact with the taskbar or other experiences. When this occurs, most users will just reach for the power button to fix the problem, but it could be an issue that you may be able to resolve by simply restarting the process without the risk of losing unsaved changes. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through several ways to quickly restart the Explorer.exe process to fix UI problems. Important: Although many of the UI problems can happen because of issues with the Windows Explorer process, it can also be a graphics driver related problem, including when the screen flashes or flickers. How to reset Explorer.exe using Task Manager On Windows 10, you can reset the Windows Explorer process in at least two different ways using Task Manager. Restarting Explorer using Processes tab To restart Explorer.exe with the Processes tab to fix common UI issues on Windows 10, use these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. Quick tip: There's not just one way to open Task Manager, you can access the experience in various ways. For example, through the Ctrl + Alt + Del keyboard shortcut, power user menu (Windows key + X keyboard shortcut ), searching for the app in the Start menu, and more. However, if you're having problems with the UI, the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut is perhaps the most direct way to the experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click on the Processes tab. Under the "Windows processes" section, select the Windows Explorer process. Click the Restart button on the bottom-right corner. Once you complete the steps, the process will terminate and restart automatically, fixing common problems, such as when the Start menu won't open or you can't interact with the taskbar or File Explorer. Restarting Explorer using Details tab To restart Explorer.exe with the Details tab to fix common UI issues on Windows 10, use these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click on the Details tab. Right-click the explorer.exe process and select the End task option. Click the End process button. Click the File menu, and select the Run new task option. Type the following command to restart the process and click the OK button: explorer.exe After you complete the steps, the Explorer.exe restart again hopefully fixing freezes and other issues with the desktop environment. Windows Explorer process changes with the May 2019 Update Starting with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, the Start menu will appear as a separate StartMenuExperienceHost.exe process to streamline debugging and isolate the feature from possible problems. However, you won't necessarily need to terminate both processes to troubleshoot issues, as ending the Explorer.exe will also automatically reset the new Start process. Just keep in mind that if you end the StartMenuExperienceHost.exe process it won't terminate the Explorer.exe process. Also, unlike Explorer.exe, whether you terminate or restart the process, StartMenuExperienceHost.exe should always start again automatically. In the rare case that the Start menu doesn't start automatically (no pun intended), then you can force it using these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click the File menu, and select the Run new task option. Type the following command and click the OK button: %SystemRoot%\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\StartMenuExperienceHost.exe How to reset Explorer.exe using batch file Alternatively, you can also create a batch file that includes the commands to quickly terminate and restart the Windows Explorer process automatically using these steps: Open Start. Search for Notepad and click the top result to open the app. Copy and paste the following script to the text file: taskkill /f /im explorer.exe start explorer.exe Click the File menu, and select the Save As option. Type a descriptive name with a .bat file extension. Quick tip: It's recommended to save the batch file in the desktop, in case the experience freezes, and you need a quick way to restart the process. Click the Save button. Once you complete the steps, when you're having problems with the taskbar, Start menu, or File Explorer, simply double-click the batch file to reset the Explorer.exe process.

  20. How to turn off Windows 10's 'Sets' feature In the future, Microsoft plans to debut "Sets" for Windows 10, which is an all-new tabbing system for window management, similar to how tabs work in your web browser. Sets will be a unique way to manage your projects, allocating all the necessary windows you need into a single "set," able to be closed and recalled at will via the Timeline. Not everybody will enjoy Sets, of course. Here's how to quickly turn them off for that "classic" Windows experience. Note: To be clear, Sets is not yet widely available. It is currently in A/B testing for Windows Insiders. Microsoft has said that Sets will roll out to the public when it's ready, hopefully in the next big Windows 10 update, expected this coming fall. How to disable Sets on Windows 10 To disable sets, first, open the Start Menu. Click on the Settings cogwheel in the bottom left corner. Once in settings, select System. In the System settings menu, select Multitasking on the left list. Scroll down to Sets, and disable Tabs in apps. Once you complete these steps, windows will open as they used to, in separate containers rather than grouped into tabs.

    Best Check your Internet Browser

    Firefox Will Borrow A Sneaky Trick From The Privacy-Focused Tor Browser Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers on the planet with an active user base of more than 840 million. Mozilla works incredibly hard to protect the privacy of each one of those users, and it's a Herculean task. Mozilla never stops making privacy-related tweaks to Firefox and there's an important one on the way soon. Firefox will be taking a page out of the Tor browser's privacy playbook. This particular update will make it harder for trackers to identify users without their permission. Advertisers and other online data-gatherers have developed extremely sophisticated ways of tracking people online. One that's particularly hard to escape is called browser fingerprinting. Your browser passes all kinds of information to the web pages you visit. Things like the resolution of your display and which fonts you have installed on your computer might not seem like secrets you need to shield from prying eyes. They aren't... at least not when looked at individually. When a complex algorithm looks at all that information together, however, it can be incredibly revealing. Privacy experts say that only 1 other browser fingerprint out of 286,777 is exactly like yours. Browser Fingerprinting Explained https://pixelprivacy.com/resources/browser-fingerprinting/ There's a handy little test you can run over at Am I Unique? to see just how easy you are to identify via your web browser. https://amiunique.org/ There are some surprisingly simple changes that make browser fingerprinting much more difficult. The one that Firefox will be adding in the near future is little more than a gray border around the web page you're looking at. Adding a bit of padding to a browser window sends a misleading pixel count to nosy trackers, which in turn makes it harder for them to accurately identify you. Little tricks like this are critical features for anonymity apps like the Tor browser. As the general public becomes more and more tuned in to online privacy issues, however, they'll trickle down to more mainstream apps. You can count on Mozilla to deliver better privacy features to Firefox with every new version that gets released.

    Is Your VPN Leaking?

    Is Your VPN Leaking? Just how secure is your privacy? You may think you have a Fort Knox-like setup, but don't take risks with your personal info. It's worth confirming that the virtual private network (VPN) software you use is actually doing its job, or if it's allowing your personal data to go hither and thither without your knowledge. When you're running a VPN, the expectation is that all the traffic sent and received over the VPN encrypted tunnel is protected. That includes info like your IP address, your location, even what internet service provider you're using. If that information is knowable, then tracking your online behavior isn't far behind. If you're lucky, all that happens is your web activity is monetized. But that's not alway the case. For the most part, if you pick one of our Best VPN Services, you'll be well protected, be it on a PC or even a smart device (most of the best services offer software across all operating systems). But it never hurts to check. Things break, new exploits are found, and there's always a chance your VPN may be leaking more than you like. Here are some steps you can take to see if that's true. Check Your IP Address: Your home has an IP address, not just a street address. The IP (internet protocol) address is the unique number assigned to your router by your ISP. Your internal home network also gives each node in your home—PCs, phones, consoles, smart appliances, anything connected to the router—an IP address. But in this case, we're only concerned with your public-facing IP address. The IP address is how your computers/router talk to servers on the internet. They don't actually use names —like cyberphoenix.org—because computers prefer numbers. IP addresses are typically bound not only to the ISPs that assign them but also specific locations. Spectrum or Comcast would have a range of IP addresses for one town and a different range for another town, etc. When someone has your IP address, they get a lot more than just some numbers: they can narrow down where you live. IP addresses come in several formats, either a IPv4 (internet protocol version 4) version like 172.16.254.1 or and IPv6 type like 2001:0db8:0012:0001:3c5e:7354:0000:5db1. Let's keep it simple. Your own public-facing IP address is easy to find. Go to Google and type "what's my IP address." Or go to sites like IPLocation, WhatIsMyAddress.com, or WhatIsMyIP.com. That latter three will show more than the IP; they'll also give you the Geo-IP, as in the location linked to the address. Take the IP address that comes up and search for it in Google with IP in front, like "IP 172.16.254.1" (sans quotation marks). If it keeps coming up with your city location, your VPN has a big, messy leak. Check for DNS Leak: The internet domain name system (DNS) is what makes IP addresses and domain names (like "pcmag.com") work. You type the domain name in a web browser, the DNS translates all the traffic moving back and forth from your browser to the web server using the IP address numbers, and everyone is happy. ISPs are part of that—they have DNS servers on their networks to help with the translation, and that gives them another avenue to follow you around. This video from ExpressVPN spells it out (and tells you up front why a VPN with DNS services is great). Using a VPN means, in theory, your internet traffic is redirected to anonymous DNS servers. If your browser just sends the request to your ISP anyway, that's a DNS leak. There are easy ways to test, again using websites like Hidester DNS Leak Test, DNSLeak.com, or DNS Leak Test.com. You'll get results that tell you the IP address and owner of the DNS server you're using. If it's your ISP's server, you've got a DNS leak. DNSLeak.com, in particular, gives you a nice color-coded result, with "Looks like your DNS might be leaking..." in red, or green if you appear to be in the clear. Hidester gives you a full list of every DNS server you may hit. When several correspond to your actual ISP, that better underscores your leaky-ness. Fixing the Leaks: If you do have a leak, you have a couple options. One, change your VPN to one that specifically works to prevent DNS leaks. Among our Editors' Choice picks are VPN Unlimited, PureVPN, Private Internet Access VPN, and NordVPN. If you like your current VPN too much to switch, maybe buy Guavi's VPNCheck Pro for $19.92, which has its own DNS leak fix, in addition to monitoring your VPN for other issues. You can also change the DNS servers used by your router when you send requests to the internet. This can be a little complicated as it requires you to go into the settings for your router, but might be worth it for other reasons. Services like Google Public DNS, Comodo Secure DNS, Norton ConnectSafe, or Cisco's OpenDNS do the trick and provide instructions on how to set them up with most routers. The latter has a personal version with various free options (even one geared specifically to family/parental controls that blocks questionable sites), or you can pay $19.95/year for extra services. On the upside, making a DNS update to your router means all the traffic in your home or office uses the new DNS service and whatever ancillary features it provides. That includes phones, tablets, consoles, even talking speakers like Amazon Echo. On the other hand, you're just handing your DNS traffic over to another corporation. You could instead invest in hardware at the router level to add extra security, but that may be overkill if you're not feeling terminally paranoid. At the very least, on individual PCs and handheld devices, get VPN software/apps for supplemental security all around. Other Leak Plugs: Your location is probably something you've plugged into your browser at some point. If so, your browser is typically more than willing to share that information with the websites you visit, even if your VPN does not. Check the massive amount of data you may be giving up by visiting IPLeak.net. Use an alternative browser when you want to be at your most secure—the Tor Browser, for example. It's all about keeping you anonymous, bouncing your requests around the world before they land on the web server you want, and back again. That makes it hard to find your local info and can slow things down overall, but it's a good bet for security. If you can't stand the thought of giving up your current browser, use incognito mode, go the complicated route of setting up a fake location, or just get an extension like Location Guard (for Chrome or Firefox) to spoof your whereabouts. If you're worried about your web-based email system, switch to ProtonMail. Not only does it redirect messages over the Tor network, it keeps everything encrypted. Proton Technologies also just released ProtonVPN for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Android. There is a tier of service that's free forever for one device—and includes DNS leak protection—while the paid versions support Tor servers and more.
