This is a helpful article. One thing to remember is that keeping one (or more) Start.Me tabs open is going to consume significantly more memory than browser bookmarks.

I used to love XMarks but years ago I ditched it when I was getting synchronization and corruption issues on a daily basis. These days I just use the default browser sync in Chrome (though I'll be migrating to Firefox soon).

Many loved their Windows Phone for its superior design. That included the contemporary ringtones. Now, having an iPhone, you are kicked back at square one with a dull variety of ringtones of yesterday. Rejoy, here is how to retrieve the superior Windows Phone ringtones and bring them to your iPhone.

For those interested (Andrew), I managed to bring the ringtones to an old Android (Sony Xperia) phone.
It was nothing more than:

  1. Connect the phone via USB. It will appear as a normal, external drive in Windows Explorer
  2. Open this drive (Xperia arc S) and locate the folder ringtones, placed on the SD-card of the phone
  3. Copy the m4a Essential Collection files (not the m4r files) to that folder
  4. The ringtones will, on the phone, immediately be listed by there tagged title

I wouldn't expect it to be much different on a newer Android phone.

Thanks, this looks like a really thorough write up. I plan to go through it shortly as I just got a new Thinkpad X1 G6 with Win 10 Pro on it. First time I'm using Windows since back in the days of XP. I've already gone through some hardening tutorials and look forward to stepping through your guide.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

PaperPort Splash Screen
Sometimes PaperPort will not even open. It displays the splash screen (above) and exits, or it may show an "Application Crash" dialog before exiting. There are many reasons for this, but a recent cause that has reached epidemic levels is due to an issue with Firefox. This article offers a solution.

Paperport 14.5 would not load (stopped at flashscreen, no error message) after upgrading to Windows 10.  Also had installed Firefox on this computer, so not sure which event caused the problem.  In any case, the registry indeed had Mozilla Firefox in the browser preference.  Your regedit file fixed the problem immediately and I have my Paperport back.  Thank you so much!
