How to Erase Tracks on Your Computer?

Nowadays we always pay great attention to our privacy. When we surf on the internet, we will leave many tracks which can reveal some of our information. So how can we protect our privacy becomes a big problem. Fortunately, Glary Utilities solves this problem for us. It can erase your trace on computer completely.

Step One: Download Glary Utilities and install it on your computer.


Step Two: Then select “Advanced Tools”–”Erase history”.


Step Three: You can check the items you want to erase tracks on the left list and then click “Erase checked tracks”.


Step Four: There will pop up a warning window for you to confirm the process by clicking “Yes”.


Step Five: Several seconds later, all the tracks you select have been erased.


How to manage your start-up software with Startup Sentinel?

You just installed a free software but you were not careful at all the dialogs and now you see that a few other programs that you didn’t want or need are now starting up at reboot. It’s a nuisance but you can easily force them not to act on start-up with Startup Sentinel.

Step One: You can download the free software by clicking on the blue “Download” button on the site. Be careful with the installation! It will offer to install other stuff along so read carefully each dialog that shows up on the screen.


Step Two: When you will run Startup Sentinel you will get a small window with a list of apps that are running on start-up and Startup Sentinel is one of them (if you checked the box agreeing for the software to do that during the installation).


Step Three: Let’s say that I need to get rid of SpiderOak, because I still need it but I don’t want it to run on start-up. You just have to click on the line containing SpiderOak and then click on remove. As you can see on the second picture, SpiderOak is gone from the start-up list.



How to apply artistic filters to your photos with PhotoFiltre?

I don’t have any talent for painting whatsoever although I wish I had. And we’re probably on the same page here as you’re interested on making a masterpiece out of a simple but good photo. There are many pieces of software that can do that but with PhotoFiltre this is very easy. Here is how in a few steps.

Step One: You can download the free software by clicking on the green “Download Now” button on the site.


Step Two: After a simple installation process and running click on “File” and then select “Open” to open your desired photo. I just downloaded one beautiful random landscape from the internet just to show you how it works.


Step Three: Click on the “Filter” button on the upper menu then bring your mouse cursor to the “Artistic” option. Most of the usual photo filter software just give you the usual effects like black&white, sepia, old photo etc. but PhotoFiltre brings out the real artistic filters that can transform your photos into oil-like paintings.


Step Four: Just look at the beautiful transformation of this photo with the “Rough pastels” artistic filter! You can play, of course, with the level of the filter. You have to check the “Direct preview” field if you want to see the effect changing the picture live. I also applied the “Grained paper” effect on hand for this filter. With a very good printer I think you can get yourself some beautiful paintings.
