DoNotSpy10 is the world’s first antispy tool for Windows 10. Its straight-forward user interface allows you to manage
how Windows 10 respects their privacy. Microsoft introduces many new “diagnostic” features with Windows 10. These services help Microsoft collect
usage data and thus to provide a better service. However, collecting and sharing your data with one of the world’s leading technology companies
puts your privacy at risk. There are services which are able to record your keyboard input, your speech and any other actions of the user. Others share
your WiFi credentials with your contact or connect you to networks shared by your contacts.
DoNotSpy10 provides you with the opportunity to easily manage what you want to share and what not. While many of the settings represent what
you can configure using the Settings and various other apps, there are also tweaks that are not easily accessible through the apps Windows provides.
DoNotSpy10 combines them all in one application – it’s time to protect your privacy, let’s start!

  • Supports global network configuration

 

Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater is a a software updater for Adobe’s Flash Player. Flash is one of the key technologies of Web 2.0 – you can find it nearly everywhere. Commonly used technologies are always a main target for malware authors – Flash Player is not different. Adobe frequently releases security updates to fix the latest security vulnerabilities.
However, Flash Player’s out-of-box updater uses long time intervals between update checks. Most endusers do not bother to configure the internal updater – they run outdated Flash Player versions.

Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater was developed to offer an easy to use application for inexperienced endusers who do not want to bother with updates.
It can install updates with no user interaction required and thus keep your system secure without bothering you.

Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater offers many features for single- and corporate users like automatical update checks with a custom time interval.
Also, it allows corporate users to use a remote configuration and thereby avoid configuring every single client.

Another feature is the configuration of administrator credentials required for the installation – Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater stores them, the users need not even know or enter credentials.

Office Trial Extender http://pxc-coding.com/portfolio/office-trial-extender/ Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:00:33 +0000 http://localhost/modernize/?post_type=portfolio&p=111 Download
  • Freeware
  • Current Version: 1.0.0.7
  • Supports Office 2010 and 2013
  • Extend evaluation time up to 180 days
  • No illegal file tampering
  • Uses the official rearm feature

 

Microsoft Office 2010 and 2013 need to be activated after 30 days. They can be rearmed 5 times, every rearm gives you additionally 30 days to activate / evaluate the product.
If you always rearm Office on the last day before it has to be activated that makes a total evaluation time of 6 x 30 = 180 days.
Although the rearm feature was made for corporate users, it cannot be illegal to use it since it is an official feature Microsoft implemented.
You can use this tool to rearm Office 2010 5 times. Just re-apply before the 30 days trial expires.

XP Update Extender allows you to receive updates for Windows XP until 2019. Therefore all it does is to set a registry key pretending to be a version of XP Embedded
called “POSReady“. It does not modify any system files.
Pretending to be running this particular version of Windows, you will receive updates made for exactly this version of Windows XP.
Those updates may not have been properly tested for your version of Windows XP and might harm your system. Use at your own risk!
Microsoft can prevent this “hack” any time.

These updates do not guarantee your systems’ security, you should upgrade to a more modern system like Windows 8 as soon as possible!
