Finds of the Week: Chrome Cleanup Tool, Windows 10 Help and How To, Free Texture Friday, Threatpost Security News


Finds of the Week is a list of web sites I've come across lately that are interesting, fun, or useful (or all three). I hope you enjoy them. -Rhiannon

Chrome Clean Up Tool (Windows)
Keep Google's Chrome browser free from unwanted toolbars and other software that might cause problems by running this tool. I tried it on UCBrowser for PC (the Chrome alternative browser I use instead of Chrome) and it seemed to run fine but didn't uncover any issues. Complete Clean Up Tool details here.

Windows 10 Help and How To
This is the official Microsoft site for Windows 10 - lots of support, questions and how to's covering many areas like devices and drivers, installation, Cortana, apps, repair, recovery, and more. A good generalized one stop resource for Windows 10 questions and answers. I haven't installed Windows 10 as yet and found it quite helpful.

Free Texture Friday
Free Texture Friday is a collection of good quality free background textures from the Stock Vault, a stock photo site.The weekly download tends towards vintage, grunge and rusty and encompasses materials like paper, concrete, metal, wood, stone and more. There are 30 pages of images dating back to 2011 so there's plenty to look at. Click on an image to download.

Threatpost Security News
Threatpost is the security news service by Kaspersky Labs. Some of the other security vendors have similar pages on their sites, but Threatpost is my favorite because the coverage is so wide ranging and so well done. The quality coverage makes it easy to keep on top of the critical and not so critical goings on in the tech world. No dry and boring reading here. :)
