The HABClean package includes two utilities, Destroy and Scrubber, that are designed to remove all traces of sensitive files from hard or floppy disks before you pass them on to someone else. While they are not intended to defeat the efforts of data-recovery professionals, they will make it very difficult for anyone to recover data from disks on which they have been used. Thus, unless you have very valuable data on your disks, the cost of recovery will be much greater than the value of the data to someone else.....(free).....

Explore some of the most useful Firefox settings that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available through the program's graphical interface. The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is the Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and stored as a string (text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However, Firefox doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called prefs.js. You can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the settings through the browser window. Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in alphabetical order. To narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All button or just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)

There are several web services which are locked to particular regions. Hulu and Pandora, for instance, are available only for US residents.

This free VPN service is the only one that offers you US and UK based IP addresses, and you decide which country’s IP address you want. Want to watch Hulu? Use their US servers.

Using HideIPVPN you can successfully bypass the region-lock of Hulu, Pandora, Spotify, BBC iPlayer, Veoh and anything that’s available only on the US and UK.
