Unlockthis: Speed Up! Use "Quick Explorer" to navigate your files easily

While you are using Microsoft Office Programs, Internet Explorer or Firefox for surfing the net,  or even Windows Live Writer when writing a blog. You use the Quick search in Windows Vista start menu, if you have a clue about the name of the file you want to open. If not, you open the Windows Explorer for navigating, copying, moving, opening and many more. There's an quick alternative for navigating your files. Using the Windows Vista Toolbar, I called "Quick Explorer".

Quick Explorer

You can navigate and open your files easily. You can also copy, delete and move files but it depends on the hierarchy of folders. It is cumbersome to do file copy, if the folder location is located at the topmost part of the folder hierarchy.

graph

One thing that I have noticed, at first, when you navigate a folder having a large hierarchy. It will caused an increased in the CPU usage but next time you open it again, it will not increase anymore. Maybe, it is now save in the memory. Same thing happened when I used Quick search in the start menu.

 

How to put "Quick Explorer" in the task bar:

1. Right-click the task bar->Toolbars->New Toolbar

2. Click the Computer icon and Select Folder button afterwards.

UnlockThis! Cracking the 8-Character Windows Vista Password for three to five days

Using NVIDIA GPU, dual core CPU and "Brute force" technique, it is now possible to recover the logon password for Windows Vista. 

edpr_s

Last October 22, 2007, ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. has filed a US patent on a breakthrough. A technology based on the combined power of Central Processing Unit and its video card's Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). The result will allow to build low cost PCs that will work like supercomputers when recovering lost passwords. It will decrease the time that it takes to perform password recovery by a factor of up to 25.

ElcomSoft, a Russian computer software company specializing in computer security and data recovery applications provides state-of-the-art software cryptology and forensics, offers a wide range of password recovery solutions. They said that using their new technology, the process would take only three to five days for an 8-character string composed of uppercase and lowercase alphabetic characters to be cracked using the combination of dual-core CPU and a $150 Nvidia GPU. Unlike using a modern dual-core PC only, you can perform a brute-force technique up to 10,000,000 passwords per second, and it will complete the task in two months.

Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery can be downloaded using the following link. ElcomSoft is a Microsoft® Gold Certified Partner and member of the Intel® Software Partner Program.

iUnlockThis! New Thread

This NEW thread presents a topic that cannot be seen in any Windows Vista/XP Tweaking guides, Tips and Tricks websites and other famous websites. Based on Google search that I have done.

A. Microsoft Desktop Window Manager command list (Flip3d and Glass style effect)

Microsoft Desktop Window Manager is responsible for the Aero effects in our Windows Vista machine.

Recently, I read a Windows Vista Tip on how to create a Flip 3D shortcut, maybe almost all of the Vista forums, Windows Vista Tweaking guides and Windows Vista Tips and tricks websites has this tip. I was amazed about the tip...because you can create an application that if you click the middle part of your mouse (scroll wheel button), Flip3D will execute. WOW!

One question pops-up in my head, how about the other commands? After experimenting with it, I found 3 functioning parameters.

Activate Flip3D: Rundll32 dwmApi #105

Turn off the Glass style effect: Rundll32 dwmApi #104

Turn on the Glass style effect: Rundll32 dwmApi #102

Note: Run the command prompt as Administrator

B. Direct download link of YouTube

YouTube Hack! Get Youtube Direct download link without using any website or windows application.

1. Go to the Youtube video that you want to download. and Right Click to the vacant space->View source

2. Press CTRL+F, and type "watch_fullscreen?"

3.  Copy the next String starting from "Video_id=...." up to "title" only, no more "=" character at the end.

Example:

video_id=8ZEzNQ-CoV0&l=375&t=OEgsToPDskJn0I7mio7H8261dbG7AW5c&sk=9CjRopcFAKzQ8Pb8lNLXwwC&fs=1&title

4. Direct Download link:

htpp://www.youtube.com/get_video? + COPIED string

Enjoy!
