Manjaro: User-Friendly Arch Linux for Everyone   

Arch Linux has never been known as a user-friendly Linux distribution. In fact, the whole premise of Arch requires the end user make a certain amount of effort in understanding how the system works. Arch even goes so far as to use a package manager (aptly named, Pacman) designed specifically for the platform. That means all that apt-get and dnf knowledge you have doesn't necessarily roll over.

But what about those who want the benefits of Arch Linux, but don't want to have to go through the unwieldy installation? For that, you turn to a distribution like Manjaro. This take on Arch Linux makes the platform as easy to install as any operating system and equally as user-friendly to work with. Manjaro is suited for every level of user from beginner to expert.

The following guide offers instructions on turning of all ads on Windows 10, and most of them with a simple double-click.

Microsofts Patch Tuesday is Back   

Microsoft missed the entire month of February, leaving Windows users exposed to attacks.

After delaying Patch Tuesday in February, Microsoft has released security updates for March. The latest updates fix more than a dozen vulnerabilities.

According to Wccftech, "Among the patches, Microsoft has also fixed a 'critical' flaw, which was publicly disclosed earlier last month following Microsoft missing February's Patch Tuesday. The exploit code related to a Windows SMB bug was made available by Laurent Gaffie, but Microsoft hasn't credited Gaffie in the bulletin."

One of the most severe vulnerabilities was in Microsoft Windows SMB Server, which, according to the Microsoft security bulletin, "could allow remote code execution if an attacker sends specially crafted messages to a Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server."
