A Fascinating Real-Time View Of Your PC's Internet Connections

I've recently been trying out an interesting new security program called Bot Revolt. Fire it up and it'll keep you continually updated with all the connections that take place across the internet between your PC and other machines. The "Verified" column indicates that the IP address in question is not one of the billion or so that it deems unsafe. As a way of finding out just how many other systems on the internet your computer is continually talking to (such as auto-update systems, product activation servers etc), the Bot Revolt program is fascinating, and well worth trying out.

New Free Video Guides on How to Use Windows 8 from Microsoft

When you get Windows 8, you are faced with the equivalent of a brand new operating system. Nothing seems to be where it used to be and the new Start screen filled with big tiles looks nothing like the Windows desktop we are so accustomed to. Very little in the way of introductory help comes with Windows 8. There is a very rudimentary feature but it falls woefully short of explaining how to use the new system.
There have been various attempts to fill the void with some helpful video tutorials (for example, here). Now there is a new offering from the Microsoft UK Higher Education Blog that users of Windows 8 should find helpful in learning about the strange new world of tiles and charms.

Easier Way to Use and Manage Libraries in Windows 7 and 8

Windows 7 introduced a new way to organize files called "Libraries", which was carried over to Windows 8. Libraries are virtual folders that can centralize related items from multiple locations and can be very handy. However, their benefits are lost on many PC users who find their organization and use to be confusing or annoying. If you would like an easier way to take advantage of Libraries, here is something to try:

Easy Way to Download and Install Free Fonts from the Google Collection

If you are one of the many PC users who like to have a variety of fonts on your computer, now is your chance to make a big addition to your collection. For several years Google has had a very large catalog of fonts that are free and open source (link here). However, using them meant manually browsing through a large selection online to see what you wanted to download and install.
But now Google has just made its collection available for download with an app called "SkyFonts" from Monotype. The app installs fonts that you select from the collection and comes in both 32- and 64-bit versions. It works in Windows XP on up but it does require installation of the full .NET 4.0 framework. The app provides for automatic updating if new characters are added to a font. Here's how you can access the

NEW: Best Free Windows 8 Start Menu Replacement

One of the most controversial things about Windows 8 is the missing Start button and Start menu. After relying on the Start menu through one version of Windows after another, PC users have found themselves floundering around in Windows 8 trying to find where everything is. It doesn't help that Windows 8 boots up to a new Start Screen filled with big tiles while the previous Desktop interface is now treated as just another app.
It didn't take long for software developers to jump in and begin turning out programs that restore the Start menu and get you to the Desktop right away. By now there are a large number of Start menu replacements. Here are the best freebies.

Amazon Launches Sneaky Rival To Dropbox

A few months ago, Amazon launched a cloud-based storage system. It scored a point over market leading Dropbox by offering 5 GB of free storage, but there was no desktop client application available. You had to access your storage via your web browser. As of today, though, that's no longer the case. Amazon Cloud Drive now has a desktop app, which effectively means that Amazon's service works almost identically to Dropbox.

What to Do with a Hung or Unresponsive Windows 7 Program

Sooner or later it happens to all of us, a Windows program gets hung up and just sits there frozen. You can open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and try to close the hung program or use the command line to kill it (see this link). But sometimes you might want to see if you can find out why the program got hung up in the first place or you may want to try to unfreeze it. In that case, Windows 7 has just the system tool you need.

Want 100GB Of Free Cloud-Based Storage?

A new player in the cloud storage market is offering 100 GB of space to the first million people to sign up to its service. To sign up, just head to www.zoolz.com and follow the instructions. However, there's clearly a waiting list for the service, so you won't get your free space right away.
Is it any good? Will the service work properly? We don't know yet. But it seems sensible to sign up now, just in case it does turn out to be excellent. You have nothing to lose. Especially if you sign up with a non-critical email address rather than your primary one.
