Wonderful Browser Addon Lets You Search Text Of All Visited Pages - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
The built-in history feature built into all web browsers can be very useful. If you need to revisit a page that you looked at yesterday, or a month ago, just search through the history listing and you'll probably find the correct URL listed there. However, the browser history would be much more useful if it stored not just the URL of the pages you visit, but also the text that was on the page too. And if it let you search that text, to find precisely the item you remembered reading without having to know the site that it was on. If such a feature sounds like something you'd appreciate, and if you use the Chrome browser, then your luck is in. A free extension called All Seeing Eye gives you precisely that functionality. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Four Ways to Make Windows XP Systems More Secure - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
Microsoft may have stopped providing security updates for Windows XP but a large number of PC users are sticking with the venerable old workhorse. Because safety is very dependent on individual habits and skills, I won’t comment on the controversial issue of whether continuing to use XP is safe. However, a lot of Gizmo’s readers are still using Windows XP so I thought it worth passing along some tips on how to make XP systems more secure. If you are determined to continue using XP, here are four ways to help keep your system safer. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Livedrive Users, You Need To Read This - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
If you, or someone you know, has signed up with the Livedrive cloud storage network then there's something you need to know. Livedrive has started closing people's accounts without warning. Not everyone's account, of course. Just a few. And when those people contact the company to ask why, they're told that they were breaching the terms of their "umlimited storage" package by, er, storing too much stuff. If this happens to you, and you make a fuss, Livedrive will restore your access in order that you can retrieve any important data. However, in the experience of a couple of friends of mine, this access has its bandwidth throttled to such a degree that it is virtually impossible to download anything. So your files are pretty much lost. So if you're a user of Livedrive and you've backed up some important data to the service recently, make sure that the remote backup isn't your only copy. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Easy Way to Customize the System Folder “Computer” in Windows 7 and 8 - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
The system folder that was once called My Computer became simply Computer in Windows 7/8 and has now morphed into This PC in Windows 8.1. Whatever you call it, it is convenient to be able to modify its contents to suit your own way of doing things. Computer and This PC are not regular folders so you can’t just add or delete a shortcut or file there the usual way. However, there is a free portable utility that makes it easy to edit the contents to suit yourself. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Here's one of the neatest ideas I've seen for ages, courtesy of a new web site. Search for the name of a song or band, and the site will bring up the relevant video from Youtube. It'll also automatically analyse the track, work out which chords are being played, and show you them in guitar, ukulele or piano notation. So you can play along. Brilliant! http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Free Program Displays Your Gaming Frame Rate - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
The key to good gaming on a PC is a decent frame rate. The faster your PC, and its graphics card, can update the screen, the smoother the gameplay. And while it's possible to find plenty of PC benchmarking programs around that will tell you the maximum frame rate your machine can manage, such results aren't always useful in real life. Which is where Fraps comes in. Fraps displays the current frame rate on your screen, updated every second, so you can see just how well your computer is performing. It works with just about any program that updates the screen regularly (even a video on a web site), but is most useful when gaming. It lets you easily compare your screen refresh speed with, say, a friend's computer or with the previous graphics card you just upgraded from. Fraps is free (you need to register and pay to get some of its other features, but the basic frame rate display is free). It's a 2.2 MB download and is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust. It works on...

An Easy and Convenient Way to Find Out What Software and Hardware is on a PC - http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
It always surprises me how little people know about what’s on their PC. If you want to know things such as how much RAM you have, what hardware and software are installed, and many other interesting details, there are a number of system information utilities available. One that is quite comprehensive and easy to use is a free program from Piriform called Speccy. Piriform is the developer of CCleaner and other widely used free utilities so Speccy is well supported. It has a clean interface with a large variety of details about what is on your computer. The program is said to work in Windows XP on through Windows 8.1 and has both 32-and 64-bit versions. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...
