More Security options

USB Drive/Storage Security

moreonsecurity1

This options can disable writing to USB drive / Flash disk (Read only) and disable the USB drive / flash disk entirely.

User Account Control Options

moreonsecurity2

A security feature in Windows Vista that always ask for permission to run or install some applications and sometimes it is so annoying that you want to turn it off.

When I installed the fingerprint software in my Dell Laptop, It automatically set the UAC options to Prompt for Credentials, which means I need to input my password or use the fingerprint reader again and again.

Because of that, I have included this feature in the new version of WinBubble.

Note: Do not TURN OFF UAC (Elevate without prompting) if you don't have an anti-virus or anti-spyware to your computer. Prompt for consent is recommended.

Optimize your Windows Vista Experience

Optimization 1: Windows Aero

Everybody loves Windows Aero. But it eats-up your computer's battery usage. Turn it off, while on mobile and surfing the net. It can give you a minimal boost in performance and a good Battery Usage.

WinBubble can turn it off in three ways.

Optimization 2: Quick Search

Speed up your search through the different search options.

  1. Disabling the search in the File index can have a large difference.
  2. Stopping the search in Communication files such as Windows Live Mails removes annoyances.

  1. Decrease your Boot time by clearing the Multiple Monitor Configuration
  2. Speeds up Windows Shutdown by decreasing the Shutdown time for Services.

*Enable/Disable UAC

A security feature in Windows Vista that always ask permission to run or install some applications. But sometimes, it is so annoying; you want to turn it off.

Note: UAC make your computer more secure and prevent viruses, malware to do something in your computer without your consent. I RECOMMEND that turn off UAC, only if you have an anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware and anti-rootkits installed in your computer. And use firefox when using the Internet because turning off UAC will also turn-off Protected Mode in Internet Explorer.

*Hide ALL Fix Drives

This feature will only hide the drive from being displayed. You can still access the drive by manually writing the path to the explorer's address bar, using command prompt and other applications.
