  • Microsoft finally says adios to Autorun

    After a decade of abuse, Autorun is finally being retired in older versions of Windows.

    On Tuesday, Microsoft began pushing an update that changes the way Windows Server 2008 and earlier versions of the OS respond when USB thumb drives and other portable media are plugged in. Until now, those versions dutifully executed code embedded in autorun.inf files without first prompting the user. The default behavior provided a convenient way to propagate malware such as Conficker, which hijacked the feature to spread itself each time an infected drive was inserted.

  • Microsoft-Windows-CAPI2 Error

    You may not notice this error unless you checked your Event Viewer. When I checked mine, I got many since November 17, 2010. You can check your system by opening Windows’ Event Viewer (Start Button – Control Panel – System and Security, and then click the View event logs under Administrative Tools – see Figure 1).

  • Get-ChildItem in PowerShell

    One of the Cmdlets on PowerShell is Get-ChildItem. This command is used to get the items and child items in one or more specified locations. It provides functionality similar to dir command in Windows’ command.

    Most of the time, Get-ChildItem will return a list of items that you want to collect, for example, a list of files in a specific folder, etc. When you have a list, usually you want to know how many items are in the list. In PowerShell, this can be achieved by accessing the Count property of the list.
