Turn Off Caps Lock Key

I think one of the most frustrating keys on a keyboard is the Caps Lock, because, accidently hitting the Caps Lock key breaks your typing pattern and get on your nerves. This is true, especially, when you’re typing an email or code. Then again, Windows doesn’t have any option to disable the Caps Lock key when not needed.
What is more, most people never use this key, so why not disable it? Here I am presenting a small software tool called CapsLock Goodbye that allows remapping or disabling Caps Lock key function.
CapsLock Goodbye requires no installation. Simply just run the file, choose the option (here ‘turned off’) and click Ok to save the settings. You can also remap the Caps Lock key function. You can always reset the key to its default function.

Likewise, you can also remap the Insert and Scroll Lock key. CapsLock Goodbye can be downloaded (For Windows XP, Vista, 7) at here (home page)

Disable automatic Meta refresh/redirect of websites in browser for security reasons[how to]

Generally speaking, Meta refresh is a method used by some websites to instruct a web browser to automatically refresh/redirect the current web page after a given time interval.
