Taskbar preview is an awesome feature for browsers (and all other applications) under Windows 7. When you hover your mouse over an element in the taskbar, will display preview images automatically. This can however be confusing in a browser with several open tabs.
You can set the properties individually without having to deactivate the useful function entirely. Here is how to disable this feature in IE9 which is enabled by default.
In internet Explorer 9 (also IE 8) open Tools (Alt + X) – Internet options. In the ‘General Tab’ click ‘Settings’ in the ‘Tabs’ field.
In the next dialogue window, uncheck the option ‘Show preview for individual tabs on the taskbar’ if you want to disable the preview feature and click OK to save the settings.
There are several web based proxy servers available to surf the internet anonymously or as from another country. The Firefox add-on (Firefox 3 – 4) Phzilla helps you view a webpage or surf the internet using the PHProxy (a type of web based proxy server) proxy servers. It is very easy and convenient to use.
There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading (we had covered few of them in the previous posts), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country.If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters.Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it.Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus.PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. (via)
Some malware can hide full capacity of your USB flash drive. For example, a 4GB pen drive sometimes shows only 500kb or less. An interesting part of this situation is that, even after removing the malware or formatting the USB flash drive, you will not get back its original capacity. Therefore, the question here is how to restore a USB flash drive to its full capacity.
