How to Hide Files?

If the computer we use is shared by other people such as coworkers, brother, sister and so forth, we may wish to secure our sensitive documents, photo albums, videos, emails and any kind of data in our computer. Fortunately there are folder locker programs around. Vovsoft Hide Files, probably the easiest one of those, can password protect any secret or embarrassing files and hide them quickly.

When the software is run for the first time, you are required to enter a master password and email address for password recovery. If you forget your password after a while, it is important a password recovery email was entered in the first place.

Top Free Antivirus for Windows (2018)

Here are my personal opinions for these searching for a good free antivirus:

Avira Free Antivirus (Publisher: Avira) This is the best free antivirus. It has one of the best virus detection database and heuristic engine. It works on Windows 7 or later. The only problem is it sometimes displays advertisement.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition (Publisher: Bitdefender) Easy to use. Good virus detection. But it doesn’t allow user to change advanced settings.

Panda Free Antivirus (Publisher: Panda) Although it received good results for virus detection on some surveys, I personally experienced that it can’t detect some obvious infected files.

Avast Free Antivirus (Publisher: Avast) It is the only choice for Windows Vista users. But its protection is not successful.

AVG (Publisher: Avast) Not so different than Avast.

Kaspersky Free (Publisher: Kaspersky Lab) Seems OK, but not recommended for old and slow computers.
