svartling: En guide på svenska om hur man krypterar ett USB minne

Att kryptera sitt USB minne kan vara bra av många orsaker. En orsak kan vara att om man har känslig, personlig information på USB minnet, och råkar tappa bort det så är det inte så kul om den personen som hittar det kan se just den informationen.

The NH50K or AK can only boot when a unique protection USB key is inserted, and the HDD is emerged in a magnesium alloy casing with anti-shock gel.

Sysinternals Freeware - Autoruns

by 9 others (via)
This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor (A starting list of auto-run locations was obtained from David Solomon's "Windows Internals" seminar), shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP. Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc. You'll probably be surprised at how many executables are launched automatically!
