Windows 10: How To Fix The Biggest Security And Privacy Flops

Microsoft privacy and security critics are concerned about the default OS settings that they say leave users vulnerable to security, privacy and, in some cases, malicious attacks.

Here are the top security gripes against Microsoft, and how to fix them.

Uninformed Consent: Windows 10 Default Install Setting Labeled Intrusive

Fix : Opt Out Of Installation Privacy Shakedown
To ensure Windows 10 isn’t sharing too much about you to Microsoft, when you install the operating system don’t choose “express install.” Instead, choose “custom install,” which gives you the options of reviewing privacy settings before you hand over your privacy keys to Microsoft.
Here you’ll be presented with nearly a dozen dialogue boxes featuring options that allow you to choose and tweak what you want to share with Microsoft from your location, personal contacts, and potentially sensitive information you are working on at the time your PC crashes and is sent back to Microsoft as part of an error report.

Windows 10 Users Get Targeted

Fix : To tell only Microsoft to take a hike when it comes to targeting ads to you, go to Settings > Privacy and then turn off “Let apps use my advertising ID for experiences across apps.” This tip also works with Windows 8.1.

Wi-Fi Sense Hysteria: Here’s The Antidote

Did you hear Microsoft is secretly sharing your network passwords behind your back? That was the largely overblown synopsis of many who were critical of Windows 10’s Wi-Fi Sense feature that was automatically turned off by default when people installed or upgraded to the new OS.
The feature is designed to help you, and the contacts you explicitly handpick, to share password-protected Wi-Fi hotspot information to speed up identifying and logging onto the hotspots. Wi-Fi Sense only shares Wi-Fi passwords between Windows 10 users that opt into the service, and only encrypted passwords are shared — preventing anyone from ever actually seeing a password.
The service allows you to choose from Outlook.com contacts, Skype contacts or Facebook friends.
Fix : To double-check that this feature is disabled, go to Settings > Network and Internet > Manage Wi-Fi Settings and make sure it’s off.

You Say Cortana, I Say Corta-NO

In order for Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana to be effective, anticipating your needs and delivering geographically relevant query results, it needs to collect personal data about who you are and where you are. For some, who may favor Google Now or Apple Siri, they just want to say “no” to Cortana.
Fix : To ban Cortana from accessing your e-mails, contacts, location information and other data, turn it off by going to Start-> Settings -> Privacy -> Speech, Inking & typing and press the “Stop getting to know me” button.

Locking Down Microsoft’s Edge Browser

Microsoft Edge browser offers a refreshing, fast and uncluttered alternative to Internet Explorer. It’s definitely worth giving a shot. But, just like Chrome, IE and Firefox, there are settings that allow you to protect your privacy from advertisers and Microsoft.
To opt out of personalized ads served up from Microsoft using Edge, you’ll want to visit Microsoft’s “Personalized Ad Preferences” to turn off the targeted ads.
The Edge browser also works seamlessly with the Cortana digital assistant. One of the things Cortana does is track the URLs of the sites you visit with Edge so it can better answer Cortana queries based on your browsing patterns.
Fix : To turn Cortana on or off in Microsoft Edge, go to More actions > Settings, and under Advanced settings, select “View advanced Settings,” and then, under Privacy and services, turn the “Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge” setting on or off.

Going Over The Edge?

Microsoft also tracks URLs you type in with a feature called SmartScreen Filter. Microsoft does this so it can automatically cross-reference the site you are about to visit with its own list of websites that are known to be malicious. Edge will warn you if the webpage has been blocked by redirecting you to a Microsoft page that details why you should avoid the webpage.
Fix : This feature is not unique and is something other leading browser makers do. Nevertheless, it may irk some privacy purists. To turn off this type of keystroke monitoring in your Edge browser, go to Settings > Advanced Settings and then below Privacy and Services, turn the “Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with SmartScreen Filter” settings off.

App Permissions

Windows 10 is similar to iOS and Android in creating an app environment and Windows Store where you can download desktop and mobile apps. And just as Android and iOS, some Windows apps want to access account data such as name, a profile picture and other personal information.
Fix : To Microsoft’s credit, unlike Android and iOS, it offers a way to opt-out of that sharing. To opt-out of sharing, head over to your systems Privacy Settings > Account Info > and turn off “Let apps access my name, picture, and other account info.”

No Permission Granted

There are a host of apps that request access to your system’s camera, microphone and location. That type of access is typically innocuous, allowing you to use an app such as Facebook to access pictures on your device and share them with someone who is close by. Want to use voice-to-text to comment on your friends Facebook status? Then Facebook needs access to your devices microphone, and there are some notorious examples, such as flashlight apps, that ask for too much permission for no reason.
Fix : By default, Windows 10 allows for this type of access. To keep the prying eyes and ears of people away, head over to Settings > Privacy > Camera (or Microphone) to turn the option off. You can choose to manage the apps on a per-app basis. To put the kibosh on sharing location data choose Settings > Privacy > Location.

How to change soft returns with hard returns in Microsoft-Word and Libre Office Writer

How to change soft returns with hard returns using the Microsoft-Word find-and-replace function.
How do I do this?
Open the find-and-replace window (CTRL-H) and Find ^l (lower case L) and Replace with ^p (lower case P).

When using Libre Office Writer :

Open the find-and-replace window (CTRL-H) and Find \n (lower case N) and Replace with \n (lower case n). Under More Options check Regular Expressions

I know, both parameters are the same ! Don’t ask me why, but it works ….

Easy as that ! Greetz, M.

The promised free Windows 10 upgrade can become a real disappointment

So Microsoft got you really exited about the free Windows 10 upgrade. Unfortunately not all systems are able to run the new Windows 10 OS, even if the Windows 10 upgrade is presented.
Here’s what Microsoft says you need to run Windows 10 :

  • Processor: 1 GHz or faster
  • RAM: 1 GB for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
  • Free hard disk space: 16 GB for 32-bit or 20 GB for 64-bit
  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
  • A Microsoft account and Internet access

So in order to be able to run Windows 10 (or Windows 8/8.1), you need a processor that supports PAE, NX, and SSE2. Without this, your Windows 10 fun comes to an end.

Now if you’re the sort of person who is a walking encyclopedia of tech trivia, then you might notice how these specs are the same as those for Windows 7. But there is one gotcha that you need to be aware of, and this only becomes apparent if you pull up the specs for Windows 8/8.1 and look closer at the processor specs:

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2

Microsoft offers a handy primer on what these mean.

  • PAE gives 32-bit processors the ability to use more than 4 GB of physical memory on capable versions of Windows, and is a prerequisite for NX.
  • NX helps your processor guard the PC from attacks by malicious software.
  • SSE2 is a standard instruction set on processors that is increasingly used by third-party apps and drivers.

So, how can you tell if your processor supports all of this? There are a few ways:

  • Download and run the Windows 8/8.1 Upgrade Assistant. If your hardware is not up to spec, it’ll tell you, saving you gigabytes of downloads.
  • Try installing Windows 8/8.1. If it won’t work, the installer will tell you before you wade out beyond your depth.
  • Start the Windows 10 upgrade. The Assistant will check your system and tell you if the system will run Windows 10.
  • Download and run a handy utility called CPU-Z (portable version). Look under Instructions and if you see SSE2, EM64T (indicates the processor has support for PAE) and either VT-d or VT-x (which is what’s needed for NX support) then you’re ready to rock.
  • Manually check out your CPU by wading through this list. This will tell you directly if the CPU supports NX, and it will be listed as "NX / XD / Execute disable bit".

NX can be a pain in the behind because while your processor might support it, it could be disabled in the system BIOS, which then means having to dig around looking for the on switch.

To install a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 (not Windows 8) on a 64-bit PC, your processor also needs to support CMPXCHG16b(which also, annoyingly, needs motherboard support, so it can be hard to test for), PrefetchW, and LAHF/SAHF, which adds more confusion. Fortunately, most people will have this already.

If you’re running Windows 8/8.1 then you’re probably good to go. If you’re not then the installer will tell you. Beyond that, the older your PC is, the more likely you are to be outta luck.

Se be prepared and don’t be disappointed when your upgrade to Windows 10 fails !

Force Windows 7, 8, or 10 to Boot Into Safe Mode Without Using the F8 Key

So you are reading instructions on some article that tells you to reboot into Safe mode. You ask how you do that, and are told to use the F8 key when the computer boots up. But you just can’t seem to get the F8 key to work… so how do you boot into Safe mode?

There’s an option in the well-known System Configuration utility that will let you force Windows to always boot into Safe mode… until you turn the option off.
Force Windows to Boot into Safe Mode

Open up the start menu search or run box, and type in msconfig and hit the enter key. This should work in any version of Windows, including Windows 8 or 10. You can also use WIN + R to open the Run box and type it in there.

Select the Boot tab, and then check the box for “Safe boot” and make sure the radio button below is set to “Minimal”.

Once you hit the OK button you’ll be asked if you want to Restart now or wait until later. Either way, the next boot will take you into safe mode.

Once you restart, you’ll realize that you are in Safe Mode because it not only places that text in the four corners of the screen, but it even opens up the safe mode page from the help file in Windows 7 or Vista.

Once you are done fixing whatever you were working on, you’ll probably want to turn safe mode off and go back to normal mode. Just open up msconfig the same way as above, and then on the Boot tab you’ll uncheck the “Safe boot” checkbox.

So don’t forget to turn Safe Mode Back Off !!!!

This method especially helps if you need to repeatedly boot into Safe mode.

Scheduling automated backup using SQL server 2008

step by step tutorial that will allow

  • Users to schedule the backup to be taken on a particular interval
  • Delete the backup copies after a certain period of time
  • Schedule the database backup
    Login to Sql Management studio and connect to the required database. Now from the object explorer, make sure SQL server agent is running, if not start SQL server agent(Right click and press start) or use the server manager to start the service.
  • Expand the Management Node from the object explorer, and then select the maintenance plan node. To schedule maintenance plan, you need to have “SYSADMIN” database role. If you dont see the maintenance node, make sure you have the necessary permission. 
  • Right click the maintenance plan and then select “new maintenance plan”.
  • Enter the maintenance plan name in the popup box (This can be any name that identifies your task for ). This will identify your backup plan and you should choose a relevant name that suits your plan.
  • Now you will be in the configuration page for the maintenance plan. . Note the marked area, these are the two areas you need to use for setting up the maintenance plan. The marked area in the right top will be used to configure the time that the plan executes. Choose a time so that the database is least used. The bottom left pane shows the tasks that can be utilized to create an sql maintenance plan. since explaining all of them is not in the scope of this document, I am going to explore only two of them.
  • Click on the calendar item shown in the right side top. This will bring the job schedule properties popup window that configure the execution time/frequency of the tasks. Configure the data carefully so that it suits your requirement. Usually database backups are taken daily basis. Make sure you are selecting proper time so that your database is least used. Click ok once you finish.
  • From the maintenance plan tasks pane (Toolbox) in the left side, select the backup database plan, this will be used to take backups for the databases. Drag and drop backup database task to the right side(or double click).
  • Double click on the backup database task, it will open up a new window that allows you to configure the database configuration for the backup. Here you configure the databases that you need to backup, then specify a location for the backup, specify the extension for the backup files etc.
  • From the pop up modal window, by clicking on “Databases” dropdown, you will be able to select the required databases. Also configure the file location, extension for the backup file etc.
  • Click ok once finished. Now backup plan configuration is over. The backup files will be created on the scheduled time to the mentioned folder. The name of the file will be created by appending the date so that you can identify the back up for a particular date.

Delete the backup copies after a certain period of time

Since the backup files are created frequently,… it is a good practice that you delete backup files after a certain period of time. For this you need to execute clean up task  along with the maintenance plan. You can configure the clean up task as follows.

  • From the left side pane (Toolbox), drag and drop maintenance cleanup task.
  • Double click on the dropped item inorder to edit the clean up properties. Here you need to specify the backup location, and file extension for the back up files and specify the age of the file. It is a good practice that you keep one month old data, and delete anything prior to one month. 
  • Once you click ok, then save the maintenance plan.

Change Job Owner to prevent errors

  • Login to Sql Management studio and connect to the required database.
  • Go to SQL server agent -> jobs -> the job you just created and right click on the job.
  • Select properties and a pop-up window appears.
  • The owner is set to the current Windows user you logged in with. Change this to the “sa” user (just select current entry, delete and type “sa”.
  • Save with OK
  • Now go back to Management -> Maintenance plans -> plan you just created and right click on the plan and select “execute”.
  • If all goes well, the job will end with “Success”.

Hope this helps.

Create a virtual floppy drive

Using remote access to some machines requires a USB device or floppy disk to store data. But what if you’re using a virtual machine (accessed with RDP) and you need to store data ?

Just download and install IMDisk and create your floppy drive with one single command :

imdisk -a -f floppy.img -s 1440K -m B:

Command output :

C:\Floppy>imdisk -a -f floppy2.img -s 1440K -m B:
Creating device…
Created device 2: B: -> floppy2.img
Notifying applications…
Done.

Now the OS sees a genuine floppy drive ! Works on all Microsoft Windows versions, 32 and 64-bit up to Windows 2012 server.
