Windows 8 and Cisco VPN Client Registry Patch

Aloha,

Recently we discovered a patch for Windows 8 to fix Cisco VPN client. We discovered that my machine that was upgraded worked when clean installed Windows 8 machines did not. We exported the missing registry to fix the problem. Use at your own risk. We hope this fixes VPN for you as well.

Mahalo,

Crap Cleaner

A lot of the times you see ads on the Internet or on TV telling you that they can clean up your computer and make it faster. So is there really a program out there that can make your computer faster? YES!

I was introduced to a really cool piece of software about a year ago. I was told by a buddy of mine that he had this software that would clean his registry and his temporary files etc. I was skeptical at first… But after trying it I was sold . The program is called CC Cleaner and you can get it at http://www.filehippo.com It’s a FREE program that actually doesn’t have spyware or something attached to it like Google toolbar or something stupid. This program is awesome, it deletes orphaned registry entries and cleans up your hard drive somewhat similar to disk cleanup built into Windows XP. It’s hard no days online to try out freeware without worrying about your computer taking a crap on you.

So download CC cleaner and let me know what you think. Do me a favor and backup your registry when it prompts you before cleaning the registry. That way if you do have a problem you can simply run the backup file.

Unpack my .zip and .rar files!

Over the years I have ran into other geeks that have showed me some really cool software that is cheap or free. I would like to share these programs with all of you.

Back in the day I used to use a program called WinZip. I’m sure most people are familiar with it. WAY  WAY back in the day I used a program called PKUNZIP. That was the good old DOS days. Since Windows XP Microsoft has included a built in program for unzipping compressed files. But it’s a typical Microsoft program lacking ease of use and such. So what do I use now to uncompress those pesky .zip files? Winrar! Winrar is by far the best compress/decompress program out there hands down. What is slick about winrar is that you can easily right click on a zip or rar file and simply select “decompress here.” I know that after time Winzip added this feature to the Windows Shell (right click feature). Additionally the winrar program unpacks and packs files faster and with less effort than WinZip or the Windows built in feature. You can get winrar at www.rarlabs.com I suggest you purchase it as they are always improving the software.
