March 2nd, 2010

With the rapid development of the Internet and software technologies our computers became very vulnerable to different cyber threats and attacks. The Internet is full of threats. If you do not use any tools to protect your computer and information, you are risking to lose it. However, sometimes it happens that own employees put your business in jeopardy. Some of them may access confidential files and sell them to competitors.

As a rule cheating employees try to protect such files with passwords. Thus, password protected files are among the most suspicious files. Why would anyone want to protect a file? Right! He or she has something to conceal, which is not good in terms of corporate culture.

So, imagine you are a police officer who has just confiscated a computer that might contain valuable information and crime evidence. Or imagine you are a system administrator who needs to check computers in the network to find out if employees are cheating on the company. The first thing you need to do is to run Show Hidden Files. Then follow these steps:

  1. Specify directory/hard drive disk in which you want to look for password protected files. Keep in mind that if you have access to remote computers, it is possible to search in the network hard drives. You can choose several locations at a time and scan sub-folders.
  2. Search by size. If you suspect that password protected files are particularly large or small, then search by date option is a perfect choice for you. It is possible to set limits and narrow search results (for example, files larger than 2 MB or smaller than 5 MB). However, if you want to have a full picture, look for all files irrespectively of the size.
  3. Search by date. If you perform a regular check up, you are not interested in the files found 2 weeks ago. So, you may adjust the program which will search for files which have been recently created, modified or even accessed.

Recent Cleaner is a great privacy tool

March 1st, 2010

The 21st century is called the age of information. Computers and web technologies have changed our life forever. It is true that very few businesses can function properly without IT support, say apart of ordinary people. We are addicted to computers. However, millions of people are using computers for business purposes, not just for fun. Computers are full of different files and folders, with plenty of programs installed. It is not easy to manage all this information, and it is even more difficult to keep it secure.

In fact, security of files and information is a #1 problem for many big companies. Indeed, it is not easy to control hundreds or thousands of employees who use confidential information in their work. On the other hand, some users want to keep confidential what they are doing in their computers.

Most programs show recently opened files. Well, you may be a freak or simply a person who does not want others to see which files were opened in your PC. It does not matter. This is your PC and you may naturally want to conceal something. Maybe from your boos, or administrator. Again, it does not matter.

Most popular programs used in PC usually show recently opened files. The same information in displayed in Start menu (sure, you can hide it if you adjust certain settings). Thus, when you run MS Word and press File menu, in the bottom you will see a list of the recently opened files. How can you clear this list?

Use Recent Cleaner from AKS-LABS and you will always remain “clean” fro whoever uses your computer. This is a very simple program that clears logs of recently opened files. Moreover, the system supports a number of the most popular programs.

One of the greatest advantages of Recent Cleaner is the fact that you can actually see which files were opened, and thus, you can select all of them, or just the files you want to keep secret. If you want to completely destroy evidence of your work with computer select Clear All, and Recent Cleaner will clear logs in the programs and system.

Recent Cleaner is a privacy tool which is very important for those, who think that an intruder might trace programs and important documents in your PC.

At a first glance, Recent Cleaner may seem a useless program to you. But let’s review some hypothetic situations of how it can save your job or a career. The program can be also used by system administrator to view recently opened files in user’s PCs. At that, a system administrator may use the program both with aims of punishing users or protecting them from punishment (for instance deleting list of recently opened files).
