Send Encrypted Emails Through Gmail Using a Chrome Extension


00_lead_image_encrypted_gmail
Need to send sensitive information through email? Normal email messages can be intercepted or hacked before reaching the recipient. However, you can use a free extension for Google Chrome, called SafeGmail, that allows you to send encrypted emails to anyone.
Messages are encrypted and decrypted within the browser, so your message is only seen by you and the person to whom it is sent, and the messages remain encrypted in both the sender’s and receiver’s email inboxes  The messages also automatically expire after a random amount of time.
SafeGmail works with any recipient email provider.
To install the extension, visit the SafeGmail extension page using the link at the end of this article. Click the Add to Chrome button.
The Confirm New Extension dialog box displays. Click Add.
A message box displays when the extension has been successfully installed. Restart Google Chrome and reopen your Gmail page after installing the extension.
SafeGmail adds an Encrypt? check box to the Compose screen. Once you have written your email and entered one or more recipients and a subject, click the Encrypt? check box. Two edit boxes display for a Question and an Answer. Enter a question and an answer that only you and the recipient(s) will know. Then, click Send + Encrypt.
NOTE: The answer is case sensitive.
The encrypted email looks like the following image for the recipient(s). The encrypted email is included as text between dashed lines. Copy this text before clicking the Here link to access the email.
Answer the question and click Submit to access the a screen allowing you to decrypt the email.
The Mail Decryption screen displays. Paste the email content copied from the received email in the edit box and click Show My Mail.
The decrypted message displays in the browser window.
SafeGmail also allows you to enter special language characters in your email message to be encrypted.

How to run Android on Windows Mobile Phone

Install Android on your HTC Windows Mobile phone – Guide

Welcome to the official XDANDROID AOSP thread which is dedicated to getting Android running on our beloved HTC devices.
Phhusson: has dedicated most of his time helping users and updating kernel to run Eclair and his work for other msm7k devices. However phhusson is not alone as there are also other members working on this. You can find some of them on http://www.htc-linux.org. I've listed some of the developers i know of that currently are working on and they deserve credits and thanks.

So respect and credits to everyone involved in working on linux kernel for msm devices.
I am not responsible for any damages or problems your device encounters. The build is relatively safe and shouldn't cause any problems.

How to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications

Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) notifications occur when your computer hasn't passed the validation test. The validation test can be failed due to being sold a pirated (non-genuine) copy of XP, or because you have changed your XP product key to a software-generated key, or sometimes it just happens for no reason at all. The failed validation installs three types of notifications on your computer: one on the log in screen, one log in timer, and one balloon. It also stops updates from Microsoft and disables your ability to install IE7 and Windows Media Player 11. This solution can get rid of all three notifications, even though you will still not be able to update through Windows Update. You will not be able to download things from Microsoft that requires a valid license either. EditSteps
Delete Method 1 If you have only just installed Windows Genuine Advantage notifications, simply using the system restore function will remove the program. Then refuse to accept the WGA update next tim…

OS Setup (Windows): Installing using the MBR or GPT partition style

Applies To: Windows 8.1 When installing Windows on UEFI-based PCs using Windows Setup, your hard drive partition style must be set up to support either UEFI mode or legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. For example, if you receive the error message: “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is not of the GPT partition style”, it’s because your PC is booted in UEFI mode, but your hard drive is not configured for UEFI mode. You’ve got a few options: Reboot the PC in legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. This option lets you keep the existing partition style. For more info, see Boot to UEFI Mode or Legacy BIOS mode.
Reformat the drive for UEFI by using the GPT partition style. This option lets you use the PC’s UEFI firmware features.

You can do this yourself by reformatting the drive using the instructions below, or if you need to preserve the data, use a third-party utility to convert the drive to GPT format.
Why should I convert my drive? Many PCs now include the ability to use the…
