Delete AppEnable Spyware (Annoying Browser Ads) :

OMG ! It seems that you can nowhere be safe from this stupid annoying browser spyware ads and somehow with no reason they just attach on your computer to boring you in the middle of the most important work. Today I went to the Opera (not the real one, Opera browser) and then pop-ups together with 3 Marketing Ads followed me all day blocking PC. Those are not regular web-page adds and they look exactly like this :

Worst of all was that those ads do not have a classical names so only thing that you can recognize them is a small title at the top where is written T AppEnable. Fortunately this ads I deleted relatively quickly but I can imagine for someone who do not know to much things about computer how it looks like. Follow those steps that I made for blog and you will be free from this spyware :

PART 1 (Delete AppEnable Application) :

Step 1 : Go to Start Menu button then click on Control Panel. From window which will appear chose Unistall a program from Programs menu.

 (click on photo to make it large)

Step 2 : When list of software is loaded try to search among them application with name AppEnable (look at the picture below) and then make right click to Uninstall it.


(click on photo to make it large)

Step 3 : Follow uninstall process which will appear. First click on Next, after that on Uninstall and wait till the application was not complete removed from computer.

PART 2 (Delete AppEnable Spayware) :

NOTE : You now delete AppEnable application but you will realize that job is still not finish because those spam ads are still there when you run browser! To completely delete AppEnable from your computer you need to download and install some of the free Anti-Spyware software that will scan and delete all bed files from your PC. Personally I use Malwarebytes which you can download from web-page : https://www.malwarebytes.org. When you install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware follow the next steps :

Step 1 : Open Malwarebytes and update your software database. When updating process is finish press Scan Now button and wait till system finish scan of your Windows System.

(click on photo to make it large)

Step 2 : Scan will take some time and when it is finished you will got a list of Malwares and Spywares which are somehow get into your computer (among them for sure is and AppEnable just with some different name). For example on my PC I had 84 Spywares even if I did not know that they exist at all till this day. Best option is to directly quarantine All of them so just press Quarantine All button on the left side and restart your PC.

Step 3 When computer is turned on, run your internet browser and see what will happen. Now everything should be 100% cleaned from AppEnable spyware and your computer is clean again! If you still see AppEnable spams try this process again because maybe it can happen that you skip some part of this tutorial.

 (click on photo to make it large)

I often using Opera Browser because for old school computer man like me it is the most easy way to be on internet without to much complications, comparing to Internet Explorer that is just like a stick for all kind of viruses and spam stuffs. Everything start long time ago when Opera was magical fast browser for basic internet speeds so back in the days I really like it and get use to it. Of course Opera today is far away from perfect but still lot of people use it and probably most common problem that can happen in new Opera users is annoying Click to Run screen before you play any video on YouTube. Solution for this problem is actually just couple of moves far away and you should following next advices :

Step 1 : Run your Opera Browser and when browser load first you need to click on Opera button which is usually at top left screen position. When the menu down open see if Opera Turbo option is checked, if it is click on it to uncheck that option but otherwise if Opera Turbo is not checked than it mean that you should go directly on Step 2 of this tutorial without doing anything in this step.


(click on photo to make it large)

IMPORTANT : After unchecking the Opera Turbo try to play any YouTube video and see if Click To Run is still there or not. Usually this is the only problem because most of new users accidentally enable this program mod.

Step 2 : If uncheck of Opera Turbo option do not working than you should click on Opera button again (which is usually at top left screen position) and from the menu down chose Settings with a left click.

 (click on photo to make it large)

Step 3 : When Opera settings page appear from left side options chose Websites. Now on right side at Plug-Ins part select Run Automatically (recommended) with a left click and close settings page (see picture below). If everything is ok you should go on YouTube and try to play any video just for testing. Usually videos will now work normally after this without any Click To Run windows around.

You have several different folders with different names which are located at one spot on your PC. If you want to copy names to all of them into one single text file like a list it can be a problem since you do not know how to do that? Actually in this case there are many solutions but I will show you very simple one with using the standard Windows Notepad application. Just write simple code which is described in this tutorial, save the file and try how it works :). Whole process you can try with the next following steps:

Step 1 :  Go to Start Menu button then click under it on empty space for search engine where is written "Search programs or files..." and type Notepad. When search window find Notepad application click on it for open.

(click on photo to make it large)

Step 2 : When Notepad is open next step is to copy or type following code into it :

dir /a /b /-p /o:gen >foldernames.txt

(This code will take text informations from folder names and after that create a text file foldernames.txt where after saving you will be able to see all informations from all folders which are spot at the same direction as .bat file that we going to create at Step 3)

(click on photo to make it large)

Step 3 : After typing or copying code from last step, click on File > Save As... When new Save dialog window appear write whatever you want for File Name : but at the end of that name you most put .bat because without that you will just have a normal .txt extension file which we do not need right now (in this case I wrote FolderNames.bat like in photo example for this step). Save as type : switch from Text Documents (*.txt*) to All Files and then after chose direction where you want that file by click on Save.

(click on photo to make it large)

NOTE : Please remember that .bat  file which you save must be spot in direction from which you wont to take folder names lists.

Step 4 : Now is time to test saved .bat file. Find file that you just save from location where the folders are spot and then click twice on it. If everything is ok in the same direction just next to .bat file it should appear one more file foldernames.txt. Click twice on foldernames.txt and you will see the list of all folders from that direction which you chose. You can also use this file to take names of folder from any direction you wont. Very simple and fast way !

How to Move Taskbar in Windows 7

How to Move Taskbar in Windows 7 :

Several days ago, I came back to my work and there I had what to see... All workers were standing around our main laptop in the office which suddenly somehow change position of windows Taskbar to the top of the screen! Luckily I had this situation on Personal Computer at my home so it was not so hard to fix that problem in a moment. The solution for this is very simple, and if your Taskbar stand not at the bottom of the screen but on the left, right or upper side then here is what you should do :

Step 1 : Go to empty space at your Taskbar and then do right click. From menu which will appear see if "Lock the taskbar" option is still checked (✓). If that is case then you need to make left click and uncheck this option because otherwise you will not be able to move your Taskbar on any place.

(click on photo to make it large)

Step 2 : Now when you are 100% sure that your Taskbar is not locked and doesn't have (✓) simbol, hold a left click mouse button somewhere at Taskbar empty space and then try to move it in some direction around where you wish to change his position.

(click on photo to make it large)

Step 3 : Your Taskbar is again at the bottom of the screen and to prevent that someone somehow again change his normal position you should go to make right click on empty space, then on "Lock the taskbar" option make it checked (✓) with a left click (when this option is enable moving of Taskbar is not possible). 

(click on photo to make it large)

Also it can be possible that sometime even if you do all of this steps and unlock your Taskbar for some different reasons it can not be moved again at all. In that case please do right click on empty space in your Taskbar, then click oProperties and see in which order Taskbar Appearance are selected + check if Lock The Taskbar option is enable or disable.
