By disabling unnecessary services, performance can be can be improved significantly ,especially on computers with low system resources. Here are some of the Windows services that you can safely disable:
– Print Spooler (if you don’t use a printer or print-to-PDF)
– Bluetooth Support (if you don’t use any Bluetooth devices)
– Remote Registry (this is not usually enabled by default, but if is you can disable it for safety)
– Remote Desktop (3 services, which you can disable if you don’t use this)
Easy Service Optimizer makes it easy for the novice to disable unneeded services!
DNS, or domain name system, is the internet protocol that turns human readable website names (such as sordum.org) into machine readable numeric addresses. In some cases, you can improve browsing speed and/or improve your security by replacing the DNS provided by your internet service provider. DNS Jumper is a tool which makes this easy for you.
Why you should use DNS Jumper:
1. It can aid in accessing blocked websites
2. It can improve security by changing to more secure DNS servers
3. It can help keep your children safe by blocking inappropriate websites (e.g. adult material) by selecting a Family Safe DNS server.
4. It can speed browsing by moving to a faster DNS server
5. Changing DNS servers manually can be done, but DNS Jumper greatly simplifies the process
DNS Jumper 2.0 has some new and important features, such as Turbo Resolve which can apply the fastest DNS at startup. DNS Jumper is freeware, and portable (no installation needed).
Simple Run Blocker
Simple Run Blocker (SRB) is portable freeware created to simplify the process of blocking applications from being used. This can come in handy, for example, to prevent children from using certain programs. SRB offers a ‘drag and drop’ ease of use not found in most other tools of this type. You can drag an executable to the SRB window and it will automatically be blocked. SRB also features a “white list” mode, which blocks all executables except your specifically approved applications.
NOTE: to ensure drives are hidden in Windows 7 or above, tick the “Restart Windows Explorer” box before clicking “Apply Changes”.
Firewall App Blocker (Fab)
In Windows, you can use Windows Firewall to block or unblock certain applications, but it doesn’t offer an easy-to-use interface for its advanced features. If you want to block an application from accessing the internet, you must go through the following steps:
1. Click the Windows Start Menu and open Control Panel
2. Select System & Security
3. Then in the Firewall section, you select “Allow a program through the Windows Firewall”
4. If the program you wish to block or unblock isn’t listed, you must click “Allow another program” to add it. Choose the application in the list and select “Add”. Else you must then browse the hard drive to find it, and so on. This seems complicated for the average user.
Firewall App Blocker makes the process very easy! Simply drag and drop the application you wish to block into the FAB window, or browse the hard disk to find it. That’s it! If you want to allow it access again, you need only select it and press the Delete button.
FAB doesn’t do anything that Windows can’t do itself, however it provides a much simpler means to select which programs will be blocked. Best of all, it makes it very easy to add multiple programs to the firewall simultaneously!
NOTE: Firewall App Blocker doesn’t change Windows Firewall default settings. If you use 3rd party security software or a 3rd party firewall (e.g. Avast), they can disable your Windows Firewall. Firewall App Blocker runs properly only if your Windows Firewall is enabled.
