Evading Autoruns, or: don’t rely solely on Autoruns for security

Autoruns is a popular program for Windows to analyze all the different files, programs, and other items that run on system startup.

It is probably the most used tool for that purpose, and includes lots of nice to have features such as scanning files on Virustotal, hiding Microsoft entries, or management of autorun files to disable or delete items directly from within the program.

Turn off video autoplay in Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store is the main hub of the Windows operating system to download apps and games, and make purchases.

Mozilla launches redesigned Firefox Add-ons website

Mozilla launched a redesign of the official Firefox Add-ons website recently which changed the look and feel, and some functionality of the site.

Firefox Add-ons, or Mozilla AMO, is the central repository for Firefox add-ons. While it is still possible to offer add-ons elsewhere, the vast majority of add-ons is offered on Mozilla's official site.

The first thing you will notice is that the layout and visuals of the site have changed. The "explorer" page, the first that is opened when you open the Add-ons website, lists individual add-ons, topics, and themes.
