  2. How to Opt Out of iOS Beta Updates and Reinstall iOS 10.2.1 on Your iPhone/iPad The tutorial also applies to iPod touch devices iOS 10.2.1 is the first point release to the iOS 10.2 series. It received a total of four Beta/Public Beta versions during its entire development cycle since mid-December last year. The last one was seeded only ten days ago. Like many of us running the iOS 10.2.1 Public Beta 4 release, it turns out you'll not receive the final version of iOS 10.2.1, which some will say it's identical with the last Beta, but what if your device is not working properly and you are still experiencing bugs. For example, we found out that, since we've installed the last Public Beta versions of iOS 10.2.1 on our iPhone 6 device, some applications were very slow to load and not so responsive like they used to be. Also, we noticed major battery drains. Removing the iOS Public Beta profile If you're experiencing the same issues on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch device, it's time to refresh it by reinstalling the operating system. First off, make sure that you have a recent iCloud backup, or at least a local backup in iTunes. It's time to remove the Public Beta profile (you can always reinstall it at a later time if you still want to use upcoming Beta versions), so open the Settings app, go to General, scroll down to the Profile section and click it. Then, remove the iOS Beta profile by pressing the red "Delete Profile" button. Restoring the device and reinstalling iOS Connect your device to your personal computer, where the latest version of iTunes needs to be installed (make sure you have the latest version installed, 12.5.5 at the moment of writing). With the device connected to your PC, enter DFU mode. Entering DFU Mode is as simple as pressing and holding both the Power and Home buttons on your device until you see the Apple logo on the screen. Release the Power button but keep holding the Home one until the "Connect to iTunes" logo appears. iTunes will soon offer you the option to "Restore and Update" the device. Click the "Restore and Update" button and the application will tell you that iOS 10.2.1 is available. Click OK and let it download the update. Once iTunes completes downloading iOS 10.2.1 from Apple's servers, it will soon begin installing it on your device. You don't have to do anything at this point, just don't touch anything and make sure your computer has enough battery or that it's plugged in. Reset and erase the device to restore it from a backup Just before iOS 10.2.1 finishes installing, iTunes will display a message saying "Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked. To set up and sync this iPhone, click Continue." Click the "Continue" button and iTunes will immediately detect your device. At this point, you need to set up your device by pressing the Home button. Choose your preferred language and region. On the next screen, you'll have to connect to your Wi-Fi network. Then, enable the location services, or simply don't. It doesn't matter, because we're going to reset and erase the device anyway, so there's no need to set up Touch ID now. When you reach the home screen, open the Settings app, go to the Reset section and press on "Erase All Content and Settings." Erase your device, which will bring you to the setup screen again. So, this time, make sure that you set up everything correctly, including Touch ID, location services, etc., and, after entering your Apple ID, you can finally choose to restore from a backup. Select the restore method you want (we prefer the iCloud backup) and let your device restore the backup, which can take a few good minutes. Once everything is restored, you can unlock your device and access the home screen. Most of the apps will continue to download and install in the background, so you'll have to wait a little longer for everthing to be exactly like it was before you've started all this. Congratulations, you refreshed your device and have the final iOS 10.2.1 installed, too. Source
  3. Do you want to revert your changes to Local Group Policy? In this guide, we'll show you how to reset all those Group Policy objects to their default settings. This guide should also work with the professional versions of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. Windows is not only known for being a powerful operating system for productivity, but it's also known for being very customizable. Although, on Windows 10, most of the customization options can be found in the Settings app (and Control Panel), when you have to change more advanced options, you typically use the Local Group Policy Editor. The Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is an essential utility that has been part of the operating system for a long time to implement specific configurations globally on your computer or user accounts. IT administrators and tech-savvy users have been using this tool for a long time in the professional version of Windows, and it always works as expected. However, there will be times when you'll probably change the wrong policy, enable and disable too many policies, or you configure a particular policy that may cause unwanted behavior on your computer. When that day comes, depending on how you might have set your policies, resetting the Group Policy objects (GPOs) to their default settings may come in handy. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to quickly reset Group Policy objects to their default settings you have modified using the Local Group Policy Editor. How to reset all Local Group Policy settings With the Local Group Policy Editor, you can configure a slew of settings regarding personalization, system, networking, and much more. In total, there are over 2000 settings you can customize through the editor. There are at least two ways to reset the Group Policy objects to their default settings. They are both very straightforward, but one takes more time than the other depending how many policies you have configured. Important: Although the chances are very thin that something could go wrong during this process, it's always a good idea to make a full backup of your system or at least create a system restore point to rollback your alterations. How to reset all Group Policy objects using Local Group Policy Editor If you have been changing these settings for a long time, one thing you probably didn't notice is that, by default, all of them are in a "Not configured" state. This means that you can easily get into each policy to reset its settings. Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command. Enter gpedit.msc and click OK. Browse the following path to view all the settings: Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > All Settings On the right side, make sure to sort the settings by State to view only the ones that are Enabled and Disabled. 5. Double-click each policy that is Enabled and Disabled and change its state to Not configured. 6. Click OK and repeat the steps for each policy. If you have also changed settings under User Configuration, you need to go through the same steps mentioned above, but to get to the All Settings use the following path: Local Computer Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > All Settings How to reset all Group Policy objects using Command Prompt Obviously, the previous steps work best when you only have a few policies to reset. If you've changed a lot of settings, you can quickly reset all Group Policy objects to their default settings using a few command lines. Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (admin). Type the following two commands and press Enter on each line: RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicyUsers" RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicy" You can now restart your computer or force the update using the following command to complete the task: gpupdate /force The commands will delete the folders where Group Policy settings are stored on your computer, and then Windows 10 will re-apply the default settings. Keep in mind that we're showing you the steps to reset these settings locally. This guide is not meant to be used on a computer connected to a domain using Active Directory, as it's likely that your network administrator controls these settings. If you're running Windows 10 Home, you won't have access to the Local Group Policy Editor at all, as it's only available on business variants of the operating system, including Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education. Also, this guide won't reset your security settings under Windows Settings, as they are stored in a different location. Finally, while we're focusing these steps on Windows 10, this guide should also work with the professional versions of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. Article source
  4. Stop Resetting My Apps is a free program for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system to block the system from resetting default programs for certain tasks. One of Windows 10's biggest usability issues is that the operating system may reset some or even all default apps or file associations after operating system updates. This can be extremely frustrating for the user, as it means that files or protocols will open in the default programs that ship with Windows 10 instead of user selected programs. Additionally, it means that you have to waste some time correcting the reset file associations again. Stop Resetting My Apps Stop Resetting My Apps is a rather simple program for Windows 10 designed to block Windows 10 from resetting default apps. The program displays a list of default Windows 10 apps, Microsoft Edge, Mail, Photos, Movies & TV, Groove Music and 3D Builder, on start. All you need to do to block it from being set as the default app on the system is to click on it in the program interface. This adds a "stop" icon to the tile that marks it as blocked. Blocking won't prevent the application from working on the computer. You can still run it and use all of its functionality. What it does is block the selected application from being set as a default app for any file extension or protocol. So, if you want Mail to be handled by Thunderbird or Gmail instead of the default Mail application, you simply click on it for that. Windows 10 cannot set Mail as the default handler for the mailto protocol anymore from that moment on. The same is true for any of the other applications the program supports. You could for instance block any app that you don't use if you are unsure about some of the apps supported by Stop Resetting My Apps. You can undo any blocking by running the program again and clicking on its tile in the interface. This removes the "stop" icon from it and enables it for file associations and protocols again. Stop Resetting My Apps does not need to run in the background once you have made the changes. You can close the program afterwards without losing any of its functionality. Note: In case you are wondering how this works: You can set a NoOpenWith string in the Windows Registry to prevent specific apps from taking over file associations. So, here is what you need to do for that if you prefer the manual way: Tap on the Windows-key, type regedit.exe and hit the Enter-key. This opens the Windows Registry Editor. If you can, open a second Registry window for easier handling of the following operations. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\Repository\Packages Locate the application you want to block from being the default, and open App\Capabilities\FileAssociations there. This displays the list of file associations of that particular application. Take note of the value in Data, it looks like a long random string: AppXsq3757nydv3f9bx6862hv0t4z7ennqqd Please note that this string may be different for any of the file types or protocols listed there. Switch to the second Registry Editor window, and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\ThatRandomString, e.g. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppXsq3757nydv3f9bx6862hv0t4z7ennqqd Right-click on it, and select New > String Value. Name it NoOpenWith, and keep its value empty. Repeat the process for any file association that you don't want that particular app to be ever associated with again.

  5. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes a new feature that lets you see your network status at a glance. If there's a problem, you can run a troubleshooter or do a complete reset, with a single click. The new Windows 10 Network Status page includes both a traditional troubleshooter and a one-click reset button. One of the most subtle but significant small changes in Windows 10 version 1607 is the new Network Status page. You can find it by opening Settings > Network & Internet > Status. This page, which is brand new in the Anniversary Update, shows the status of the current network connection. If you've got a solid network connection, this status dialog box gives you details about the network. If there's a problem, it offers access to two tools that can automatically repair many common issues. The first is the Troubleshoot button, which opens the Windows Networks Diagnostics utility. That troubleshooter runs a short suite of tests to fix most common network-related problems. If that troubleshooter doesn't solve the issue, you can go for a more drastic solution. At the bottom of that Settings page is a Network Reset button. Click that to completely delete all network settings and start fresh. Article source

  7. GitHub Security Update: Reused password attack What happened? On Tuesday evening PST, we became aware of unauthorized attempts to access a large number of GitHub.com accounts. This appears to be the result of an attacker using lists of email addresses and passwords from other online services that have been compromised in the past, and trying them on GitHub accounts. We immediately began investigating, and found that the attacker had been able to log in to a number of GitHub accounts. GitHub has not been hacked or compromised. What information was involved? For affected accounts, usernames and passwords are involved. Additionally, for some accounts, other personal information including listings of accessible repositories and organizations may have been exposed. What we are doing: In order to protect your data we’ve reset passwords on all affected accounts. We are in the process of sending individual notifications to affected users. What you can do: If your account was impacted, we are in the process of contacting you directly with information about how to reset your password and restore access to your account. We encourage all users to practice good password hygiene and enable two-factor authentication to protect your account. These attacks often evolve, and we’re continuing to investigate and monitor for new attack vectors. Please keep an eye on our blog and on Twitter for pertinent updates, or contact Support if you have any questions. Article source
  8. Reports are coming in that the recent patch for Windows 10 with the identifier KB3135173 may reset default applications on systems it is installed on. We have talked about Windows 10 resetting default applications before, the first time happening shortly after release of the operating system. The changes did not affect all users of Windows 10 back then who installed the responsible update at that time but those who were affected reported that default apps for web browsing, pdf viewing and photo viewing were reset, and that programs were removed from the system as well. KB3135173 KB 3135173 is a cumulative update for Windows 10 that Microsoft released on February 9, 2016. It fixes vulnerabilities reported in the security bulletins MS16-022, MS16-021, MS16-016, MS16-014, MS16-013, MS16-011 and MS16-009. You find information about these security patches in our patch day overview for February 2016. Users noticed that something was not right after the patches were installed and the machine rebooted for the first time. The Action Center started to display one or multiple notifications on the screen that app defaults were reset listing the file type that was reset, and the default system application it was mapped to. This happened for custom file associates for file types such as pdf, avi, mp4, jpg or png, and each time the file type was reset to one of the default applications Windows 10 ships with. Even worse, while it is seemingly possible to associate different apps or programs with the reset file types, Windows 10 would reset those associations a moment later making it impossible to use custom file associations on affected PCs. Temporary solutions So what is the solution for users who are affected by this issue? One course of action is to uninstall the update and block it from running, but it is not suggested since it patches security issues. Removing it will make the system vulnerable to attacks targeting those vulnerabilities. The Winhelponline Blog created a Registry file that supposedly fixes the issue. I was not able to test it as my test systems were not affected by the issue. Changing file associations on Windows 10 Windows 10 offers several options to choose default applications for file types. The starting point for all of them is the operating system's Settings application. Tap on Windows-I to open the Settings application. Navigate to System > Default Apps. There you find programs or apps associated with popular application types such as email, web browsing or music playing. You can associate programs with those types right away, but may want to use the three options listed below those for finer controls. Choose default apps by file type displays all known file types and the applications they have been associated with. Choose default apps by protocol displays protocols, such as http or ftp and the applications or programs they are associated with. Set defaults by app finally opens the classic "set default programs" dialog of the Control Panel. Select a program from the list, and associate all file types and protocols with it that it supports (or customize the selection). Closing Words The resetting of custom file and protocol associations should never happen on its own, and it seems that Microsoft needs to adjust the parameters that are responsible for the resetting to make sure it won't happen again in the future. For now, it is wise to check default applications, file associations and even installed programs after updates regularly to make sure none were affected by it. Windows 10 users may also want to create system backups, or at least System Restore points, before running any updates that Microsoft put out for the operating system. Article source
  9. Windows 10 has caused greater privacy concerns than any previous version of the operating system. You may well have spent some time tweaking settings so that you are in control of your privacy and limit the tracking that Windows 10 is able to do, but if you have installed the latest big update you may well have to do it all again. In addition to resetting their privacy settings to their defaults, many people have reported that installing Windows 10's November Update has wiped out any personalization of default apps. This is just the latest in a series of slip-ups which sees Microsoft upsetting Windows 10 users. So how do you know if your settings have been changed? Head to Settings and click Privacy. In the General section check through the various privacy options, and disable any settings that have magically re-enabled themselves. There are a couple of ways to change default app settings, but first off all head to System in Settings and move to the Default apps section. Here you can see the default apps for a few key file types, and reset any which have been changed in the background. You will notice that the number of file types you can tweak here is rather limited. If you find that a particular file is opening in the wrong app, hold down the Shift key while you right click the file and select Open With from the menu. You can then click the More Apps link, check the Always open this app... box and select the app you want to use. It might seem silly that you should have to go through all of this for a second time if you have already spent time customizing things to your liking, but in many ways this is very much in keeping with the launch of Windows 10.

  10. Came across a nice set of instructions online I thought I would share with you.. I don't usually forget passwords or have to break into a system for someone.. but I found this useful because several other methods and paid options in the past have not worked. This is free and only requires some basics... Also will remind you about locking your BIOS Settings and Hardware Access with a Password if possible... Things you will need.. * Windows Installation Media ( Windows Version OS Install Disk or USB ) * Access to the Boot Order and Menu in the BIOS ( will vary between systems ) Boot from install Disk at the first program screen to select languages or repair your computer you will press Shft + F10. CMD Prompt will open. Find install Dir by typing the drive name like c: or d: and press enter. C:> To check the drive to make sure it is the volume or drive in question type C: dir, hit Enter. This should list recognizable folders or directories in the installation partition in question. Next you will navigate to C:/Windows/System32 by entering the following commands, cd windows cd system32 Next you will type the following commands to rename utilman to utilman1 and cmd to utilman. ( you will need to reverse this in the same manner later. ren utilman.exe utilman1.exe ren cmd.exe utilman.exe Reboot normally and at the logon screen you are going to click Ease of Access.. This will now run a CMD Prompt with an error line at the top, ignore the error. Type the following commands... net user - lists your user accounts net user ( ) * -chooses the account to be modified, inserting account name where it says ( ) without the ( ).. It will ask you for the new password to be set.. and as you type the password is hidden. Next you will type this again to verify. You will receive a notification that it has been completed successfully. Close the CMD Windows and logon to the account in question with the new password. To undo the rename changes which were done when booting from the installation disk you will repeat the same steps mentioned above except for this time, after booting back into the installation media and opening the cmd prompt, you will be renaming utilman.exe to cmd.exe and then utilman1.exe to utilman.exe like this.. C: cd windows cd system32 ren utilman.exe cmd.exe ren utilam1.exe utilman.exe Reboot normally This undoes the changes that have been made to the files and returns the original operation of the Ease of Access and CMD Prompt to your system.
  11. One of the perks of LastPass is that you remember just one password, your master password. And to protect your account, you know the master password needs to be long, and strong, and unique. But what if your master password is so good that you forget it? Today we’re introducing a new way to protected your master password reset process: SMS recovery. This allows you to activate the secure, local-only account recovery process by using a code that is texted to you. Once the code is used to activate the local recovery data that LastPass stores via your browser, you can securely reset your master password. Why SMS recovery? Until now, we have facilitated master password recovery by sending a unique recovery link to your account email address (or security email address, if you enabled one in your account settings). Clicking the recovery link activates a locally-stored One Time Password (OTP). OTPs are bits of data that are automatically generated and stored by the LastPass browser extension, and is stored locally until you go through the recovery process. When starting the recovery process, the OTP is utilized to verify that you should be given access to your account, before allowing you to reset your master password. A different OTP is stored for every browser on any computer where you use the LastPass extension, though this can be disabled in your extension preferences. With SMS recovery, you will simply enter the code texted to you to activate the locally-stored One Time Password in your browser. The same OTP technology is used to verify you and allow the master password to be reset, but you’re replacing the email step with entering a verification code instead. Now, you can choose the recovery option that best suits your needs and security preferences. There are a few reasons why we recommend turning on SMS recovery: You store the password for your email address in LastPass. If your email password is also stored in LastPass, and you forget your master password, this will ensure that you aren't also locked out of your email account and unable to complete the account recovery process.You’re concerned about unauthorized access to your vault. Should someone have access to a computer where you’ve used LastPass, and they also manage to compromise your email account, they could potentially try to use the LastPass email recovery feature to gain access to your vault. We recommend SMS recovery for those who are concerned about this potential risk.The phone number is only used by LastPass to text you when you need to activate account recovery. If you do not want to enable SMS account recovery, we strongly recommend turning on two-factor authentication for your email account, and committing your email password to memory. Adding or updating your mobile number for SMS recovery If you’re ready to add a phone number for SMS recovery, follow these steps: Sign in to LastPass via the browser extension or www.LastPass.com.Open your LastPass Vault.Launch the Account Settings.Scroll down to “SMS Account Recovery”.Select the option to add a phone number.Save your changes with the “Update” button.Resetting your password with SMS recovery If you forget your master password, activating SMS account recovery is simple. Click “forgot password” on the LastPass login dialog.Select “Account Recovery”.Enter your account email address.Check your phone for the SMS / text message with the verification code.Enter the code on the webpage.Create your new master password.No version update is required to use SMS recovery, so you can login today to set it up for your account! We have more great security and feature enhancements on the way, so stay tuned. Source: https://blog.lastpass.com/2015/10/introducing-sms-recovery-to-secure-your-account.html/
  12. How To Reset or Refresh Windows 10 When You Have Trouble Logging Into Desktop Windows has made the process of resetting your system a lot easier since Windows 8 in the event when things went really wrong. When resetting/refreshing seems to be the only choice to go to make your Windows run properly, you can simply go to Settings app → Update and recovery, and do either of the process from there. But that works only when you still have access to your desktop. What if things really went south and you have no access to your desktop or simply can’t get Settings app to work properly? Here is a quick trick that lets you boot to the Advanced boot option right from login screen. When you are on Login screen, click the Power button, hold down Shift key and click Restart option. And keep holding down the Shift key until the following screen appears. Now click on Troubleshoot, and Reset this PC to start Reset process. The Reset process has 2 options in Windows 10, either Keep my files which is similar to Refresh as in Windows 8.1 or Remove everything like start from the scratch. Pick one that suits you to start. And that’s about it. Source
  13. Sensitive data, such as user credentials, can be easily recovered from an Android handset after performing a factory reset, according to a University of Cambridge report. The feature, which is claimed to "erase all data" from the device and is especially recommended come resale time, will not work as advertised on up to 630 million Android handsets. A factory reset will not properly wipe the data partition, where "credentials and other sensitive data are stored", on up to 500 million handsets, while on a further 130 million devices it will not properly clean the user-accessible storage. Even worse, relying on encryption to secure sensitive data does not help. When encryption is turned on, the report says, it is still possible to recover the encryption key, which allows recoverable data to be decrypted. The security researchers claim that they "could recover Google credentials on all devices" -- 21 popular Android smartphones, made by five different vendors, running Android versions ranging from 2.3 Gingerbread to 4.3 Jelly Bean were used for the purpose of the study. According to Google's own data, those distributions power 50.2 percent of all Android devices that are currently in use. Those include tablets, of course, but, fundamentally, Android is the same across all devices that run it -- so, the factory reset security problems should not be limited to Android smartphones. The report says that, among other things, an attacker could exploit the weakness of the Android factory reset to access Google accounts and backed up data linked to them -- the latter includes contacts, calendar entries, Drive files, Wi-Fi credentials and more; basically, what is selected to be synced with your Google account is at risk. Part of the blame lies with vendors, for not delivering drivers and updates that effectively fix the problem, and the other part lies with Google, which has not implemented "support for proper deletion of the internal and external SD card in all OS versions". One of the problems pointed out is that factory reset is not consistently implemented -- triggering it from Android allows the user to also use it for the microSD card, but this option is not provided when using the feature via recovery mode. Vendors are apparently aware that a factory reset might not work as expected, with HTC revealing on its One (M8) help page that "A factory reset may not permanently erase all data from your phone, including personal information". There are issues even on Android 4.4 KitKat, which, in the Android Open Source Project flavor, supports full disk encryption (FDE), like every Android release after, and including, version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. FDE is said to be "more appropriate" for users, but it has to be turned on from the get-go to be effective. Enabling it before the factory reset, like with other distributions, may also make sensitive data easily recoverable. The problem is not all smartphones support FDE, nor FDE for the aforementioned data partition. So what can you do? Well, the researchers seem to imply that there is little an ordinary user can do to make sure their personal data is secure, after performing a factory reset. The report does, however, provide a number of recommendations for vendors. To read the whole report, hit the link in the third paragraph. Source:: BetaNews

  15. Thread Has been Updated for 2015 version..... 2014 also added in case someone still using it thanks to november_ra1n's original trial reset Thread. I learnt from that only. I hated when trial reset kept restarting the system after resetting the trial. Here is how to do it manually. Just registry tweaks. . Step 1. open notepad and copy paste following command for x86 2015 reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\AVP15.0.0\settings" /v Ins_InitMode /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f RD /S /Q "C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP15.0.0\Report" REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\LicStrg /f REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\SPC /f for x64 2015 reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\AVP15.0.0\settings" /v Ins_InitMode /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f RD /S /Q "C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP15.0.0\Report" REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\LicStrg /f REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\SPC /f x86 2014 reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\protected\AVP14.0.0\settings" /v Ins_InitMode /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f RD /S /Q "C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP14.0.0\Report" REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\LicStrg /f REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\SPC /f x64 2014 reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\protected\AVP14.0.0\settings" /v Ins_InitMode /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f RD /S /Q "C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP14.0.0\Report"REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\protected\LicStorage /fREG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\SPC /f Step 2 Save it as batch file (.bat) Step 3. Disable Self Defense. Step 4 Pause Protection Step 5. Exit from tray Step 6 run the batch file as an administrator Step 7 Run kaspersky and activate trial for more 30 days. I have tried this on KIS 2015 on VM running windows 8. Note: The above registry paths are of 2015 & 2014 version of the kaspersky internet security. Prior version may differ but a little. So figure it out by yourself which registry I am talking about if you are not on 2015.

  20. mmmh! well the launch of Windows 8.1 has not been completely trouble free. I have already reported that Microsoft has pulled the Windows RT 8.1 update for unknown reasons. Now there's word that some people who updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 no longer have any refresh or reset options. The issue was first reported on McAkins Online, and it affects people who bought and installed a retail copy of Windows 8 on their PC, either electronically from windows.com or from a retail DVD disc or ISO image. In very simple terms, installing Windows 8 creates a ESD file that allows users to refresh or reset their PC. Installing the digital download version of Windows 8.1 does not provide a new ESD file, and as such, the ability to refresh or reset the OS after it is installed is eliminated. I asked Microsoft about this issue and the company sent over word that there are two situations where users will need some kind of media (an ISO burned to a disc or USB Flash drive) to enable refresh or refresh: "OEM devices without W8 PBR (very few)" and "Users that installed via DVD." Microsoft added, "For Windows 8.1, users that upgraded to Windows 8 via online download (ESD), will need media when updating to Windows 8.1. Also, users that upgraded to Windows 8 via DVD then updated to 8.1, they will need to use their Windows 8 DVD to go back to Windows 8 if needed." However, according to McAkins Online, adding a Windows 8 disc or ISO image in a PC drive after updating to Windows 8.1 will not work, as users will see the error message below. Since there was no install media provided by the Windows 8.1 upgrade, users cannot refresh or reset their PC. Here is how to fix it 1. Download the Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO 2. Mount the ISO Image 3. Go to the “Sources” folder, Locate a file called “install.wim”. Right-click on it and copy the file to the clipboard. 4. Go to the C: drive, create a new folder called Win8 (or whatever you want to call it) Paste the Install.wim file you copied earlier in this folder. 5. Open command prompt in Administrator mode. Once the Command Prompt window opens, type the following commands:reagentc.exe /setosimage /path C:\Win8 /target c:\Windows /Index 1Press enter. You'll get the following responses: Directory set to: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\hardisk0\partition2\Win8 REAGENTIC.EXE: Operation Successful. C:\Windows\system32> 6. Now replace your “Win8″ folder (or whatever name you gave it). if your Windows is installed on a different lettered drive, replace the letter C with the appropriate letter in ”C:\” 7. Now, whenever your PC is not running well, you can use the refresh and reset functionality in PC Settings. more : info : here Please respond with a feedback
