Windows 10 ships with the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command tool, which has been designed to allow administrators prepare, modify, and repair Windows images, including the Windows Recovery Environment, Windows Setup, and Windows PE. However, you can also use the command-line tool to fix problems with the recovery image included with every installation of the OS. Usually, when your device is experiencing performance issues, doesn't start correctly, or you're dealing with unexpected errors, you can use the System File Checker command tool to scan, detect, and replace any corrupted or missing system files using the recovery image. The problem is that if SFC can't fix the issue, it's likely because it can't retrieve the replacement files from the Windows 10 image as a result of corruption or other errors. In this particular case, you can use DISM to scan and repair the install.wim image, which you can use with SFC to repair your actual installation. In this Windows … [Read more...] about How to use DISM command tool to repair Windows 10 image

The NanoCore Remote Access Trojan (RAT) is being spread through malicious documents and uses an interesting technique to keep its process running and prevent victims from manually killing the system, researchers say.The cybersecurity team from Fortinet recently captured a sample relating to the spread of NanoCore RAT in the form of a malicious Microsoft Word document.Developed in the .Net framework under an author known as "Taylor Huddleston," the Trojan has landed its operator in jail for peddling the malware on underground forums.While the Arkansas man is due to serve close to three years in prison, his legacy continues on in the wild without his influence.The malicious document, "eml_-_PO20180921.doc," is spread via phishing campaigns and contains auto-executable malicious, obfuscated VBA code which initiates the Trojan. If opened, the document contains a security warning at the top informing the would-be victim that macros have been disabled, but should that individual click … [Read more...] about NanoCore Trojan is protected in memory from being killed off
PWAs are hybrid properties that possess the advantages of the web and conveniences of apps. They're discoverable, easily updated and platform-independent. In our connected world an ever-increasing amount of computing occurs in the cloud, browser-based activity dominates users' behavior and constant connectivity fosters leisure and professional collaboration. Virtually everything we do on our devices has a connected component, and we (particularly digital natives) can barely conceive of computing that is not connected in some way. PWAs seem a natural fit for this reality. In its attempts to make its web and mobile experiences more efficient, Google has invested heavily in PWAs. And in an unlikely partnership Microsoft has been working collaboratively with its frenemy, Google, on the creation of standards to advance PWAs. Other companies including Mozilla and even Apple have shown interest in the technology. Thus, in our app-driven connected environment, major industry-drivers are … [Read more...] about Looking for more good Progressive Web Apps, or PWAs? Check out Appscope.
Performance issues have plagued the Xbox One version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) long enough to make us wary of recommending the game at its $30 retail price point. But at the low, low price of totally free? Now we're talkin'. PUBG, the game that kicked off an international "battle royale" gaming sensation, is currently free for all Xbox One owners. Even if you do not have a paid Xbox Live Gold subscription, you can head to this link and claim what appears to be a permanent copy of the game for your Microsoft Account. Timed trials of Xbox One games tend to be exclusive treats for XBLG subscribers. Bizarrely, the Konami soccer game PES 2019, which launched at a standard $60 retail price point in August, is also free to claim as of today. (Here's that link.) Of course, there is the caveat that these games' giveaways could be yanked from accounts by Microsoft at any moment. In the meantime, we suggest clicking first, asking questions later. Perhaps this freebie could be … [Read more...] about As PUBG for PS4 looms, Xbox unofficially responds: have the game for free
