Windows 10, three years later: Why this is as good as it gets

Based on Microsoft’s own track record, there’s a certain statistic “sweet spot” for Windows releases, and the May 2019 update appears to be it.

For experienced IT veterans—and PC enthusiasts—there is a common wisdom about the latency between when a version of Windows is released, and when those releases become reliable. Windows XP is the primary example of this, as the original release of XP lacked a variety of important security protections—a rebuilt firewall enabled by default, support for NX bit, and finally disabling the Windows Messenger service abused by spammers, were added in Service Pack 2, three years and a day after XP was first released.

How to securely and completely delete files in Windows 10 without third-party software

Deleting files in Windows 10 does not really delete the file. Security best practice requires deleted files to be completely overwritten more than once.

In general, when you delete a file or directory in Microsoft Windows 10 it is moved to a special location known as the Recycle Bin. If you want, you can retrieve a file from the Recycle Bin and restore it to its previous status. To permanently delete a file in Windows 10, you have to empty the Recycle Bin—this is common knowledge for most users.

Is there a new version of Windows 10 called “Ultra”?

Reimage Tips & Tricks: Giving the boot a Boost!

Remember the days when restarting your system meant that it was time to make a few phone calls or go for a smoke (yes kids, once upon a time people spoke on phones that were tethered to the walls and we were also allowed to smoke indoors).

One of the great bonuses with Windows 7 is the time it takes to boot up. Relative to previous versions of Windows, it was like being upgraded from having to take a 12 hour transatlantic flight to flying in a concord (I remain optimistic that most of you were born before 1990).

Reimage Tips & Tricks: Keyboard shortcuts for Windows

In an effort to make life easier for the average Windows PC user, Microsoft has gone to great lengths to provide keyboard shortcuts. Whether you know them as keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys, they have been around for as long as I have used a PC (and I’m reserving the right to keep that information a secret), and in recent years, more and more apps and programs are providing users not only with keyboard shortcuts to speed up and simplify their workflow, but are enabling users to customize and create their own shortcuts.

Revenge of the Stuxnet: Microsoft isn’t ready to face off with Duqu

Yes folks, this time last week it was Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday, unfortunately this new patch won’t fully solve the latest of troublesome trojans, Duqu (not to be confused an evil Jedi master).

Duqu is a recent meddling malware that many suspect may have been created by the same person, or persons, who created Stuxnet, arguably the most important malware in history. However, where Stuxnet primarily targeted automation and PLC gear, Duqu acts as a recon drone for future attacks, collecting various information from infected systems. I dare say that I am not alone in assuming that a bigger threat might be out there, lying dormant, awaiting this information only to wreak havoc on PCs worldwide.
