With the more use of internet, there comes different types of danger. Fraud, phishing and dangerous websites are on the internet in abundance. Thus it is necessary to protect ourselves from such threats. Before starting the review I want to give you a advice to be aware of such scams or install some program/extension like adguard to help fight against the threats.

Adguard which is quiet popular not only for its ad blocking and internet filtering capabilities but also for blocking dangerous and fraud websites. Since adguard is a binary installation rather than general browser extension thus providing you the one stop solution to block ads from all the programs including metro apps for windows 8/8.1/10. Browser extension for all widely used and popular web-browsers are supported. Adguard rely on the filters and userscripts developed especially in extensions to make it more customisable for you.
Now, to install the adguard download the online installer and it will download the complete binary package first or you can get the complete binary package from here for offline installation.

After the install, main window is nice divided into many sections (every section is for monitoring and status of the respective module) which looks good and user-intuitive. Hovering the mouse over the desired section will show you the current status of that module. You can get the idea from the gif below:

[Image: N8CbjfS.gif]

Now let’s walk through each tab module

“Protection tab” – Gives you the statistics about how many ads, trackers and dangerous threats are successfully blocked on the system to keep you safe online. Adguard checks for the recent addition/update of the filters and userscripts. Recent updated filters status will be shown after the update verification.

[Image: oPhKUV6.png]

Second Module is of Ad Blocker which monitor the ad blocking module of Adguard. The settings will take you to the ad-block settings section which will be discussed later.
Similarly, other modules monitoring is done from main window while to tweak them goto settings of each module.

Coming to the settings tab, it has 7 tabs divided according to the functional purpose and marked with the numbering labels that define the order I will go through

[Image: tRLqpvH.png]

“General Settings: From here, you can control the Adguard App behaviour like changing start-up behaviour, updates control, language of the app, etc. Also, at the bottom there are settings to change the filtering behaviour of all outgoing/incoming connections. Since now-a-days most of the websites uses http/s connection for communication, adguard allows you to detect and filter them at your end. For such kind of filtering, adguard need to install certificates. If you don’t want adguard sites with EV (extended validation, it is the highest protection level provided in HTTPS connection) certification, you can disable/enable it too. WFP driver filtering allow to manage ads on the metro apps for Windows 8 or later.

Many web domain rely on advertisements to let their website run, and block contains for ad blocking visitors. Thus, to open them without filtering, you can add them to HTTP exclusion list. To let you know, that filtering is better approach rather than simple only ad-blocking as it remove other types of threats like trackers, etc.

[Image: tYksmtl.png]

“AD Blocker”: It has configuration and management related to ad blocking filters. As I told, some ads are useful and may not harm you in any way, thus to support the website for revenue you can allow ads. These ads are auto-checked and managed by adguard based on filters. One of the interesting feature of adguard is that it change and loads the specific language filter automatically based on the website you are visiting, i.e., if I open some site in foreign language (say .de domain website) then German filter will be activated automatically.

[Image: ocLPNf1.png]

Here, marked label “A” is Filter Editor where you can customise, create or change the filtering rules for any specific language filter. Also, you can add your own custom rule made filter. Based on the definitions, custom made rules are generally given more priority than the defined one.

[Image: itZTIKi.png]

Label marked “B” opens the logs of the filtered content for your reference.

[Image: J5cY72N.png]

Also, based on the already developed filters available online, you can add the filters explicitly like some desired language filter, spyware filter, etc. This can be done inside label “C”.

[Image: uaSmkhp.png]

“Stealth Mode”: In short, Stealth mode allows you to stay safe online by hiding your original identity which can be achieved with many measures. Many web browsers, especially Google Chrome, uses various methods to collect details and data so Removing x-Client data header from chrome helps in preventing such data. Also, with WebRTC enabled, our original IP can be leaked online even if you are using VPN thus blocking of it helps in check for such threats. Along with these, you can hide your user browser agent and can change custom referrer and IP address to the desired one.

[Image: BzJ6dYl.png]

“Browsing Security”: This module helps in protecting from online phishing and malicious web content to avoid frauds, system/browser hijack, etc.

[Image: R1Y6sJf.png]

Thus, whenever you visit malicious website, adguard block the access to that request with a notification and sound. If you want to really want to open that website, you can go by using proceed to site in Advanced options at that page to go that unsafe site.

[Image: Qc4RVzV.png]

[Image: KeqbIxY.png]

“Filtered Apps”: Here, you can manage the apps for which you want adguard to monitor and block ads and trackers. Note that to filter content of new modern UI app, adguard need WFP drivers to be installed, otherwise they won’t be filtered even if added in the list.

[Image: eBgniLx.png]

“Parental Control”: Manage and protect your children activities online and keep your system safe.

[Image: 9ZdysOX.png]

[Image: aefcLOF.png]

Manage the apps that you explicitly want to block or allow overriding the default rule created in the filter rules/scripts.

[Image: KNNsGQ8.png]

“Extensions”: To extend the functionality of the adguard to work as a cross-browser user-script manager, this module is used. Adguard
assistant (helps in managing filtering from browser itself) and pop-up blocker (block the pop-up automatically) can be enable/disable from here. Popular website rating extension WoT (web of trust) is also installed with adguard but after some data leak controversy of WoT, adguard decided to keep it disable by default, so that user can choose according to their choice of enabling it.

[Image: Yww2gEB.png]

[Image: eGGfxTD.png]

“My Account” tab at bottom will open the adguard login page in the default browser.

Now coming to the license management tab where the details for the license along with expiry details are given.

[Image: kWq0OFr.png]

From “Support” window, if you face some problem while using adguard, you can directly send a feedback message to the developers.

[Image: ubla3uq.png]

From “About” tab, you can check for the adguard version and if update is pending or not along with some important links of Adguard.

[Image: M164zur.png]

The system tray icon for adguard is nice with monitoring status mark and right click menu allows us to access many functions directly.

[Image: iTjSqSZ.png]

Final Verdict:
In today’s internet dependent world, threats are spanning and growing at a faster rate than before and it is now a need to check from these malicious activities. Adguard provides more comprehensive solution with website protection and parental control which is really interesting. It is worth every penny as ads/trackers are more annoying than one time investment. The customised filters and user-scripts compatible integration makes it the favourite choice for the customers.


I would like to say thanks to Adguard Team for sponsoring these license to our forum members.

The integration of all pioneered technologies of Malwarebytes Anti-malware with Web Protection, Anti-Exploit and Anti-ransomware make the Malwarebytes 3.0 a complete featured program to keep you safe. The more exciting feature of Malwarebytes 3.0 is that it can be used as a complete protection suite or as a companion scanner along with your main AV since Malwarebytes 3.0 is compatible with most of the Anti-Virus programs.

Now starting with the installation of Malwarebytes 3.0, the setup ask for only few user interruptions and within a matter of seconds it will get installed.
The main dashboard of the Malwarebytes 3.0 is now more organised and attractive. It is divided in to three parts Left side as Menu Pane, Middle side as Status/Option Pane and Right side portion as Detail Pane. With the status details of the program modules and scanning status along with the protection history on the right side pane and protection status in middle makes the new UI more pleasing and user-friendly.

[Image: ProhZqL.png]

If there is some issue with the modules monitored then the middle protection status pane changes along with the risk module info in right side pane.

[Image: rZLDTCh.png]

If you are a premium user and have bought licence for Malwarebytes then you can activate it by going to MyAccount section (right side button in Blue color Malwarebytes top section pane).
Malwarebytes support three different types of scanning mode for your system,

[Image: Ya3flaw.png]

Threat Scan: In this scan mode, Malwarebytes 3.0 searches for the threats in most common places where, in general, most of the threats hide itself or launch point. This scanning mode includes scanning of Memory Objects, Start-up objects, Registry Objects, File System Objects, Heuristic Analysis. This scan type is generally used in daily scanning task.

Custom Scan: A custom scan allows you to scan according to specifications which you define at the time of the scan. These settings will override scan settings defined elsewhere. You can choose what type of objects to scan and in which memory locations or space. Also how to treat PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) or PUM (Potentially Unwanted Modification).

[Image: XZwyueE.png]

Hyper Scan: Only Available for Premium users of Malwarebytes 3.0, it is the faster way to scan for recent or immediate threats. It scans in the Memory objects, Start-up objects and do the heuristic analysis for the above areas files.

After choosing the scan type, it starts the scan progress with interactive progress bar which animate and green highlight the current scanning area/method and static green icon shows complete scan for that area/method. Along with progress bar, it also shows current scanning file and total scanned files as well as total threats detected in the current scan task.

[Image: x1HjlIH.png]

After the successful completion of scan, the summary window shows the details of detected threats and required user intervention to either quarantine (or clean) the threats or leave them in the location without clean (risky).

[Image: yCCSYgU.png]

After the successful clean-up you can export the scan summary or see the detailed analysis of the scan.

[Image: OBU0aJn.png]

Now since Malwarebytes doesn’t depend much on the signature database, and depends on the machine learning algorithms for unknown threat detection. And, nothing in world is 100% accurate, thus sometimes it may quarantine safe file as threat. So to restore the file quarantine by Malwarebytes after detection, we can do so from Quarantine menu.

[Image: 6CnmoCv.png]

With the completion of each scan task, Malwarebytes generate a summary report of that scan and save it temporary which we can access from Reports menu.

[Image: XJKVR8f.png]

Now coming to the settings section, the most important and useful part in any antivirus suite which helps in customising it according to the users need and requirements.

Actual Multiple Monitors Review & Giveaway

[Image: cHMWQEEl.png]

In today’s technology landscape, people are either using a very wide aspect ratio monitor/TV and/or multiple monitors for their gaming/media needs. In the operating systems, prior to Windows 10, built in support for more than one display was spotty at best. Even with better support for multiple monitors found in Windows 10, it has limited functionality. Thankfully, a better solution has arisen from Actual Tools and the program, Actual Multiple Monitors 8.92.

[Image: BnykKKUl.png]

As a user of Windows 10, and having two monitors, I have used the built–in functionality for multiple monitors, and it works well. One thing that I did not know, though, is that the Clock, Recycle Bin, and System Tray only shows on the Primary (Main) Monitor, instead of the secondary and/or tertiary monitors. Actual Multiple Monitors does fix this issue, and while I did not miss them on the vanilla OS version, this additional tweak is a welcome addition. Being able to see them on my secondary monitor (which I use for either watching media, web searching, or graphic design tools), is saving me productivity effort, and gives me a quick glance at the time, search functionality, or emptying the Recycle Bin.

Many times, I have had a stuck program or two in my time, so I have had to use the Task Switcher to close out these programs and looping processes. If that happens, when I am on one monitor, and working with the second display, I used to have move back to my primary display, initialize the Task Switcher, close out the problem, then go back to my work on the second display. Now with this program, I can just access this window from whatever display that I am working one, clear up any issue, and keep on working, from that point forward.

[Image: DPSyPQWl.png]

I have always found that they way Windows handles icons and desktop layouts to be lacking. This is acerbated by having multiple monitors and various resolutions and aspect ratios. In my case, I have a 1080P and 16:9 ratio (primary monitor/TV), and a secondary monitor that is 1280 x 768 and 4:3 ratio. When I change the monitor assignment (which is primary or secondary) and their associated resolutions, it scrambles the order and their layout. Now Actual Multiple Monitors can create a profile, which saves the layout, size, relative size, and color depth of your icons that can make sure that no matter if you change the resolution, aspect ratio or other icon settings, they will stay grouped the way you want them to be.

[Image: HsIXWSkl.png]

If you are like me, you still love a nice screensaver on your system. The necessity of using them has lessened over the years, though they would be a nice preventative, if you are still using a display/TV that uses plasma as its illumination source. In any manner, it is nice to have a high-quality, 3D screensaver to run, when your system is inactive. On basic Windows, I have not seen an option to span my screensaver, but I can now do this with this program, so now I can see my great screensaver on both of my screens or even choose different ones for each one. This is a nice, neat feature to have available to me, and should have been included in the OS, but now worries as Actual Tools has you covered.

I could highlight other features, but the bottom line is that you need this program to augment the features of Windows, and the lower the version (XP, Vista, Windows 7); the more important it is to have this program. The cost is $24.95 USD, and well worth the cost of the program. You can try it out, with a time-limited demo, and see for yourself. I know that if you try it, you will want it in your system’s tweak arsenal. Once used, you will not want to go back! Until next time, keep on techin’ . . .

You can restore and download these files later on using import function under task menu. The program will automatically detect the exported files saved by the user and restore it. More easily you can import and export any downloads in the form of a text file. You can even use all your downloads. This will help you in many situations and save your time. For example, you can easily restore all your download after moving to a new computer

Search function (Find):

After many years of program use, you will have hundreds of downloaded files. If you need to find a specific file that you have downloaded long time ago (for example to redownload), you will need a long time to search and find it among the long list present. This is no longer a problem with the built in search function. This new features helps you to find any downloaded file in few seconds. Simply click “Find” under download menu then write the file name in the search dialogue. Use “find next (from download menu) or click F3 to move to the next file in your search. This will save your time and make the process of searching for a certain file easier and faster.

Automatic download Mode: This method is the easiest one and the default method. IDM is fully integrated into all browsers and become your default downloader. You can automatically start any file download with a simple click on any download links. This process will make your file download very easy job and completed in a few seconds.

Batch download:

This is one of the most interesting and useful features in Internet download manager. If you have a certain website with many files that you need to download, what will you do? The usual method was to download each file separately till download is complete. The main problem with this method is that it is time consuming and needs a lot of effort to do. Now, with the batch download feature, your download becomes very easy. All you have to do is to open task menu and select add batch download then add the URL of your preferred website with asterisk and extension of the files you need to download at the end of the URL (see the image). For example *.mp3 for sound files. The next step is to select the method you want to use to arrange your files, you have one of two methods by numbers (for example from 1 to 100) or letters (from a to z). Then select number of files and wildcard size (this means the number of letters for output file name as 001 or 01 or 1). Finally click OK. The program will detect the files and show all files with the arrangement and names you select and the file size and download URL will be in front of each file. You can now select the files you will download and click OK. The files will be automatically added to the program scheduler. You can specify the destination folder or leave it to be automatically done by the program. Finally, you can start download and the program will do everything for you. You can even go to work

Web Player (Video Grabber):

This is an important built in download feature that helps you to download any online multimedia files in an easy and fast way. You will not need to use any video or multimedia download application. IDM will do the job for you. If you want to download any online multimedia (Videos) (for example YouTube), simply start of the online video play, a small IDM window will appear offering you the ability to easily download the video using single click. Moreover, all the formats and resolutions available for your video or movie will be available as a drop down menu (for example MP4, WMP, and so on). You can now select the resolution you want (for example full HD) and the destination to save the output file (or leave it to be automatically specified by the app). Finally click start. That’s all! In this way IDM is now working as a video grabber.

Manual Download:

Using the program, you can manually start any file download you want. The process is very easy. All you have to do is to click: “Add URL Button” from the download toolbar then copy the download URL in the text box or select URL from existing ones. Sometimes, the server needs your login information (username and password), in this case the program allows you to easily input your credentials to start the download.

Download files from a Web Page:

If your download link is embedded in the selected text (for example in html pages), you can easily download your file by right click on the link and select “Download with IDM” or simply click the link and download will start automatically. If there are many download links you can right click and select download all links with IDM, then select the files you will download from the list that will appear. That’s all!

Download from a Host File:

Currently, many important files are uploaded to some file hosting sites (such as rapidshare, mediafire, and so on). This way of file upload become very popular and many users need to download important data and files from these host files. The download from these file host sites is different as you will need a username and password to enjoy the full download speed otherwise the download speed will be limited and sometimes you can’t use IDM. This needs subscription to these host files which is paid monthly or yearly to be able to download files at the full speed. IDM lets you easily add and save your host site login details so that when you start any file download from that host site with a single click, download process will start automatically and at the full speed. To do this, simply launch the program and select options (under download menu), then select sites login. You can add any number of host sites you want by click new button. The pop up window let you add the host site URL, Username and Password.

Drag and Drop:

IDM offers an interesting tool called download basket which enables you to drag and drop links for download. All you have to do is to drag the link from your browser and drop it to this basket. Download will start automatically.

This tool is hidden by default, if you want to use it, simply launch the program and select “show drop target” from task menu.

Clipboard links:

When a URL is copied to the clipboard, IDM will automatically check the URL and shows you its dialog to start download. This will make your download job more and more simple.

Command line Downloads:

You can also start downloads with IDM from the command line using specific parameters. This option is mainly for advanced users.

Download Function Features:

IDM has important built in features for its Download function. These features let you easily manage your download

Download location: You can select the location you want to save your download file or leave it in the default location specified by the program. You can add a new category to save certain files.

Speed Limiter:

Internet Download Manager has a built-in intelligent dynamic file segmentation and multipart downloading technology which marked increase the download speed. This will cause some problems if your internet connection is shared with other persons. The internet connection will be very slow!

The developers add a very useful tool that can set a limit to the download speed. The process is very easy. Simply open the program, click on download button then speed limiter turn on/off and adjust the download speed to the figure you want. It is important to note that if you are downloading from a server that doesn’t support resume download, it is better to turn off speed limiter to avoid interrupted download.

Resume Download:

This built in feature is especially important in many situations we have in our daily activities. For example, when you are downloading large sized files or if there is some problems in your internet connection or you are busy and so on. It allows you to resume your download at any time suitable for you. No need to work on your computer for many hours to complete your download. Simply stop download and resume later. You will not lose your downloaded part.

It is very easy for you to know if the downloaded file is resumable or not. There is a “Resume Capability” on the download window. This shows “yes” if download is resumable.

Download Complete:

This windows appears after your download is completed. It gives you the location of the downloaded file and offers you one of three options to manage the downloaded file; either to open the file or open with (select a specific program to open the file) or open folder (containing the file) or close. You don’t have to search for the downloaded file. IDM will make this easy and save your time.

After complete file download, you can either open it immediately with the default program (for example you can open a PDF file with Adobe Reader) or use the right context menu (in the main app list) which offers more options for you such as open, open with, open file location, move, rename, redownload, resume download, add to queue, remove from the list and file properties (which will easily show you the download link you have used to download the file).

The second important function of the program is the so called “Site Grabber”. Let me discuss in details this important feature:

Site Grabber:

Using this feature, you can download complete websites (or only specific files such as pictures or audio files) for offline browsing. This is done through the predefined set of templates built in the program. These templates make it easy to set the Grabber for a required type of project.

The process is very easy. Simply open IDM then start Site Grabber from the download toolbar. The program will guide you through simple four step wizard that determines the website to be downloaded, the files to be downloaded, name of your new project and location to save it. After creating a project, the grabber starts to explore files and do everything for you. That’s all!

The first step: you specify name of the new project, the website to be grabbed, project template (type of files to be downloaded), and sometimes authorization may be needed for example username and password may be needed).

View post on

The second step; You will specify whether the project files will be automatically saved (each file to the default category according to its type) or you will specify a different location. In addition, other options are present such as; overwrite existing files, convert links in html pages to local files for easy offline browsing

The third step let you put explorer filters such as whole website exploration or specified number of link levels only, ignore popups windows, explore all sites in the domain

The Fourth step lets you set filters regarding the file types you want to include or exclude. Also it helps you to hide duplicates when found during download process.

Finally, IDM will start to explore the website according to your set filters and the progress of site grabber can be easily followed using “Site Grabber Statistics”. The process can take long time according to the website and the set filters. After the program finish explorer function, you will have a list of the files found. You can select any files you need or all files and start download. To make it easy you can sort files by type, size, name

The third important Tool in IDM is the time-scheduled download list or the Scheduler

This option is present in the category tree and in the download menu. You can launch this tool using the toolbar button or the download menu option. Also You can right click queue in the category tree to have many options such as start, stop, edit, schedule, delete or even create new queue (custom queue).

This feature is very important as it will automate all your downloads. You will not need to spend many hours for downloading all your files. Just go to your work and the scheduler will automatically do everything for you in a timely arranged way. All you have to do is to copy download URLs in the program, location to save your files (to the default categories or any specific location you want), time to start and end of your download, download limit, general or synchronized download and number of concurrent downloads. That’s all! The program can even finish download and shut down your computer. If you are on a shared network with other users you can easily use some download limits such as time, speed and size of download

There are two main types of queues; download queue and synchronization queue. The two categories are different. If you doing a synchronization queue, the program will check if the files in the queue have been changed on the server in order to download the new files and replace old ones. All files will stay in the queue after synchronization. The download queue will download the files once and each completely downloaded file will disappear from the list. This new custom queue will let you specify file download type whether on time or periodic.

You can easily add files to any files to any of the queues, many ways are available. You can use right context menu in the main program area (file download list), or move any download links by drag and drop from the main list to the queue you want.

After you add all the files you want to download and set all previous parameters explained above, download can be started either manually using “start now” or at a scheduled specific time to start download. That’s all!

It is to be noticed that the files you have in your main download list show one of the information available for you as the column “Q”. This is the queue and if a file is added to a queue , this mark will be different accordingly

Program Options:

As any other application, IDM has many options and settings which are adjusted to the default configuration suitable for most users. The program is unique in that the settings are highly customizable so that you can change many settings in the way suitable for you. To open the options, simply click on the download menu.

General options:

The general options include the ability to launch IDM on startup of your computer, run a module for monitoring in IE-based browsers, download capture from clipboard URLs and advanced browser integration. IDM is compatible with most web browsers such as: Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Safari, Google Chrome and Opera. If the browser is not listed in the menu, you can simply add it using add browser button. There are two edit tabs available in the general option. The upper edit button will let you customize the menu items that will appear in the context menu of different browsers. The lower edit button lets you customize IDM download panels in browsers whether web player or selected files. In addition you can customize special keys to be used in an easy way to prevent or force download of files from a website (for example alt, shift, CTRL and so on).

File Types:

The program has predefined default set of file types that will be automatically downloaded with IDM. These files are of different types and include for example, 3GP 7Z AAC ACE AIF ARJ ASF AVI,RAR,ZIP and so on. If you want to add any files that are not listed, the process is very easy. Simply write it in the corresponding field. The program allows you to exclude some file types from being automatically downloaded. You can edit this list to add any files you want to the exclusion list. At any time you can reset both file type fields (included and excluded) to the default situation using default button located under each one. The program has a built in feature that will show a dialogue to ask you to add an address to the exclusion list if you cancel file download twice.

Save to:

This options lets you manage categories, file types and folders. By default, there are 6 categories for downloaded files; General, Compressed, Music, Video, documents, programs. For each category there are specific file types and default save location. You can add other file types or change default location easily. General category includes the file types not listed in any other category. You can also create a new category and specify file types associated with it and the default location to save files.


Include settings for download dialogue (on start and complete), show queue panel on click of download later or close patch downloads and virus checking tool which allows you to scan any downloaded file. You can customize the download progress dialogue regarding the download start view and the options available for you (for example add speed limiter, hide, options on complete). You will also find some options when duplicate download link is added. For example, add the duplicate, overwrite present file…etc


This option lets you specify your connection type and speed, your maximum connection number (maximum 32). This option will let you enjoy the highest possible download speed according to your connection type but during download the internet will be slow for other users and for browsing. Also, some host sites will not allow you to use such high download speed. You can add exception sites for this connection number with the number set for each one (for example you can set 4 connections for a certain server). You will be able to set the download limits regarding size and time of download. As a rule, if you have no time for these settings the program will test your internet speed by default and set these options to the best for you.

Proxy / Socks:

If your internet connection goes through a proxy or socks that need specific configuration, then you will need this option. You can easily set your proxy, socks or FTP settings using this option

Site Logins:

Many host files need you to login to your account to enjoy the full download speed. IDM offers you the option to add this site and the login information needed (username and password). The program will save these data for future use. If you download any file from this site again, you will not need to enter your login again. The program will use your stored data to start download automatically and with the full speed.

Dial Up / VPN:

Using this option, you can simply configure your dial up and VPN settings so that IDM will be working with no problems.


This option allows you to add sound when the download is completed or failed, queue processing started or stopped. Music files of the “Wav” type are the only supported type to be added.
