Useful Windows Tools for Malware and Privacy
I was lurking over at Betanews this morning and found a couple news posts for two Windows tools to help manage your pc. First is O&O ShutUp10, an easy to use tool to help your privacy concerns when using Windows 10. The other is an extra tool to help combat malware when surfing the Internet called MS Hosts Block. They're both free so go ahead and check them out.
O&O Software has shipped an updated for its Windows 10 antispy tool, O&O ShutUp10. The latest build has been repackaged as a single executable, making it more convenient to use. There’s support for tweaking more privacy settings, including Microsoft SpyNet and Windows Defender. It’s now possible to start the application and define your preferred settings from a standard (non-administrator) user account.
Most internet security suites include some kind of browsing protection which blocks access to known malicious websites. But if you don’t have anything installed -- or you’d just like to add a second layer of protection -- then you might be interested in the Windows freeware Hosts Block. The program works by regularly updating your HOSTS file with the latest blacklists from MVPS or Malware Domain List, instantly blocking access to thousands of online threats. Better still, Hosts Block looks out for other processes trying to access HOSTS, stopping malware from changing the file.
