How to Disable AUTOPLAY in pendrive

Now-a-days most of the viruses that affect our computer come from pen drive. Unknowingly most of us use our pen drives as a virus carrier. And most of this viruses are activated when we "auto-play" them. By turning off "auto-play" option we can reduce the spread of virus in our computer.

A way to disable the "auto-play" option is given below:

-Go to start> run> type gpedit.msc
-Now from Computer configuration click administrative templates> system
-There at the right pane look for "turn off autoplay".
-See that it's set as not configured.
-Select enabled and then select 'all drives'.

*Not applicable for all the versions of Windows.

A Beautiful Hadith

I found a beautiful Hadith while surfing the net. It is really meaningful. Try to apply it in your practical life. Here it is:
According to Wabisah bin Ma'bad, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said:
I came to the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, and he said: "You have come to ask about righteousness ?" " Yes," I answered. He said: "Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels tranquil and the heart feels tranquil, and sin is what creates restlessness in the soul and moves to and fro in the breast, even though people give you their opinion (in your favour) and continue to do so."

MobaPhoto : The portable toolbox for digital photography

Mobaphoto, formerly known as Buibuiphoto is just the tool you want for your daily photo editing solution. I have been sing this software for many days without any hassle. It's a tool which provides you "batch" (many at a time) resizing, editing and renaming facility. You can also make a digital gallery of your own with this software. Usually I use its batch resizing and editing facitlity. It is really easy to install and use. Before I came to know this software, when I had to resize a bunch of images, I used to use photoshop to resize one by one. It was very boring and lengthy process. Now, when I upload any photo album to Facebook or any other websites, the first thing I do is resizing them with Mobaphoto (Buibuiphoto). Why don't you guys have a shot of it? You won't regret.
**It's a FREEWARE too !!
You can download this software from their website. It's really small in size. Have a look.
