    Please people do not take any "cure" for COVID before consulting an specialist (medical man). They are a lot of so called "cures" for COVID which are actually all fake. There is no cure for COVID at this moment.

    My personal belief is that the entire world around is fake - just a simulation. Our universe does have a creator and that creator may or may not be God. The pain & and struggles we face means nothing in the greater sense. We are nothing more than a programmed object. Even the pain or happiness is nothing but programmed feelings. For example, we design computer games with their own story-lines. In one such game there may be a person who is put under immense pain. There are many movies in which innocents die due to no fault of theirs. However we are not concerned since we know the pain is virtual. It's how we designed the game or movie. In a similar sense, our creator knows the pain we humans/animals face is also virtual. In the real world (which is not this world) this doesn't matter. Even the concept of life and death is fake. Death is simply a way of putting an expiry date. Is is possible to know the real truth? I guess it is. But once humans try to understand the real truth there will be no wars anywhere. There will be no struggle for wealth, fame and power. After all why run after wealth, fame & power in a fake world. If there is something that needs to be done is to try to find out the real truth and escape from this fake world.

    I have not read through the entirety of what has been posted here and I really do not want to have to for moderating purposes. I kindly ask that if other people have opinions (what ever that evidence is based upon) respect them and debate them without having to degenerate your posts in to personal attacks. Try to influence each other through debate and not impose or mandate your view point on everyone else. The Covid-19 has been a fast flowing series of events that even the best governments and scientists around the world are struggling to understand and resolve. If you are unable to discuss appropriately my advice is to not to reply or post at all... Ted.

    Agreed. And no medical suggestions please, unless you are medically qualified and certified to give any since they could potentially put innocent people at risk if they follow them without consulting with their physicians first.

    You could also try using the Extended Tools plugin in Process Hacker to monitor disk activity, then filter by process if required. My preference though would be using Resource Monitor, as @atom0s already mentioned. You can filter a process to see everything happening with it on the Overview tab plus it catches things like Page File activity. Leave Windows 10 to optimise (or defragment) your drives, no need for another program to do this work... Ted.

    You're writing to the wrong address. It should be something like: WriteProcessMemory(debugee,pointer(dword(ProcessBasicInfo.PebBaseAddress) + 2),@buffer,sizeof(buffer),length); Since Delphi doesn't have a pretty way to get field offset, I had to hardcode the "2" instead of writing something prettier like "offsetof(PEB, BeingDebugged)". You could do some of the ugly tricks mentioned here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14462103/delphi-offset-of-record-field but to me it's not worth the effort.

    Dear, my uncle has renal failure and when he needed surgery they did not use these on him. What you are quoting seems to be those valid for otherwise healthy people without such salt and water restrictions. By the way, I use Himalayan salt in my cooking. It is nothing but table salt but it looks pink and contains more minerals I guess (not purified). Same with sea salt which I use in cooking shrimp dishes. Iodized or non-iodized salt is not important here. The restriction is for the Na ion and the total quantity of water intake per day. All of these are forbidden for my uncle. He even measures exactly how much water he is allowed to drink per day. A lavage is performed in the hospital and is different from drinking the saline solution! A lavage means that they use a tube to push the pressured solution in and then also suck it out later through a NG tube. A lavage cannot be done by untrained people at home and is dangerous if attempted by untrained individuals without medical training or equipment in their homes. If you do not get your medical facts right, please do not post medical advices. We do not want everyone making fun of tuts4you. Peace

    OK, so from that thread I assume you have this motherboard. Your motherboard is actually quite good! So this is what it supports: 1 x M.2 Socket 3, , with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices support (both SATA & x2 PCIE mode)*1 So remember these important points: It is "M Key" and "Type 2242/2260/2280" . When doing a search to buy the storage modules you want to check that these parameters match. Read more about M.2 Form Factor here. So you can buy an NVME with those parameters above matching. You can choose company and disk size according to your budget. Of course check out the reviews too from sites like Tom's Hardware etc. You also have 4 SATA ports for 4 ordinary SATA drives (4 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray,) . So what they say is that if you install an NVME then port 2 would be non-usable. It should not be a problem since you have 3 more. So just go ahead and buy an NVME. Make sure it is M KEY and Type 2242/2260/2280.

    Yes, unless explicitly disabled. If you use it for storage then you will benefit from fastrer I/O times. Before buying it, it's better to check if your motherboard supports it (or not). Otherwise would be a huge hassle and waste of time for nothing. Even if it supports, if the bus speed is very low then you may not gain much more additional benefits in terms of I/O.

    HDD regenerator 2011 can do a quick scan for bad clusters on your disk due to magnetic error, and it can fix them it's quite an interesting tool. 100% disk activity often on page file reads was extremely common symptom though it would hang the machine for a minute even. Not the most common problem though and when I had it, the problem kept happening repeatedly until I had to replace the disk though I avoided data loss. Chkdsk can show if any bad clusters have been found, happens on old disks sometimes. Win10 defragger is enough, but for heavy power users with MFT, page file or other system file fragmentation, a good boot time defrag now and then has always improved speed slightly for me. You won't get more than 2 or 3% though typically. But I have not found a free one that does a good enough job anymore... not that I'm encouraging to crack or find a serial You can put data on SSD but its priority is for where fast reads and writes are most beneficial. 200GB of movies, pictures and music for example are definetely wasting valuable SSD space. Yes go with NVMe or PCIe or SATA or the best SSD for your bus speed as the cost is close enough to the same.

    Yes it's a Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD according to the info you provided. If you check out the tools then you can see which process is using the HDD for the maximum time and continue from that point. You can actually sort through the list of apps that take up most of the HDD time to the one taking up the lowest time to have some sort of a starting point for your investigation. Otherwise you don't have anywhere concrete to start.

    If you boot off an SSD and if you have one it would be ridiculous not to, Windows boots in a few seconds usually whether SATA or the even faster NVMe. If it's a magnetic drive it will take much longer like a minute or two. If you are using SSD for data that would be wasteful since the speed of it is best suited for OS and apps. Empirical for sure. Speedfan 4.52vwill give S.M.A.R.T info which is not present for SSDs and for SSD only shows temperature. My guess is Windows detects the existence of a TRIM command and assumes SSD if the ATA interface indicates it. The exact technical detail here would be really interesting to know. The details of how the drive functions seems to be totally hidden from the system. So we can be sure it's a protocol method and TRIM command is the only major difference I know of. It's why clean and clean all in diskpart securely (short of lab recovery which is still difficult) removes all data instantly without using a full drive write cycle. Unless trim is disabled and even then it's very fast but it just used 1 of the 10000 write cycles. 100% for SSD is not common in my experience. A bad or old ATA driver could influence this too. Make sure to update your chipset drivers and Speedfan or CPU-Z can help identify your chipset manufacturer and model. If you have bad clusters on a magnetic drive, 100% would be a common problem. First you must identify the drive type as you say. I still suspect though kernel driver operation is to blame in System process ID 0. It could even be a virus on the system or a 3rd party driver, or a user mode program which keeps opening files for no reason and causes the antivirus software to excessively check stuff. I will tell you this is a painful and not fun project you are embarking on. Though it is important if you want to not be frustrated with you computer. Hope we can learn how you solve it and that the ideas and knowledge here helped

    I would not worry if your SSD is detected properly. It certainly should be - you could check Device Manager -> Disk drives or msinfo32 -> Components -> Storage -> Disks to see details about the model and size information but it will not really tell you if it is an SSD or not. As far as getting the TRIM command to be used to save writes to an SSD: you can check "fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify" from an Administrator command prompt and make sure its set to 0. However with Windows 10 this is not really an issue. Its an interesting question if Windows is disabling SuperFetch (which it should) and using the TRIM command due to correct detection. The protocol which is ATA and ATAPI is basically the same for the different drives. Even Easeus Partition Manager and Perfectdisk failed to tell me which is an SSD and which is magnetic drive. But I know which is which and that is good enough in my case but not friendly to an average user. You still need to defrag SSDs - just not in the same way and its invariably a much faster process as files do not need to be made contiguous as an SSD actually has a mapping table and distributes writes evenly anywhere on the disk so the data never need be in sequence. Windows might do the TRIM command, but the file system itself can become fragmented meaning the MFT might not have a contiguous entry for a file but a chain of entries which will make things slower and more inefficient for sure. You need an SSD defrag tool preferably one that can do boot time defrag of the NTFS files, and defrag the MFT online. Consider it to be "virtual fragmentation" since the SSD itself is not fragmented. For some odd reason, countless websites have failed to understand or demonstrate this issue in proper detail and made it a confusing topic for most people. https://download.raxco.com/perfectdisk-ssd-optimization They use the term optimize instead of defrag to avoid confusion: Be careful with the tools you mention - unless they offer a special SSD defrag, you could be wasting the life of your SSD. Use only a tool which is especially designed to do an SSD optimization. Procmon is a great suggestion but it will not show you kernel driver read and writes to the disk - I think it only will show direct IOCTL commands sent to drivers and even then I am not sure if it works for the SYSTEM process. But drivers can invoke other drivers and there is no way for Procmon to monitor that. Still it would get one deeper that Resource Viewer. My investigations like yours found that that Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials were one of the worst burdens on the disk always which is hardly surprising. Normal user level software on the system which accesses a lot of files can cause these to scan and excessively rescan lots of files on the system. I have remained forever suspicious however of what activity is going on at the kernel driver direct IO level - anything from a hypervisor, rootkit, the BIOS, Windows kernel drivers or 3rd party kernel drivers could be up to something which so far I have not seen any mention of anything which would have a chance of detecting this information. But its so low level that it would be quite a load of work to bring that information back to a high level useful view, given that if things are deleted or rewritten or the MFT changes, the details would have already been lost.

    Active time means the % of time in which it is active or basically having been issued a command until that command is completed. If you want more information, click "Open Resource Monitor" and on the Disk tab you should see which files are being read and written and you can sort by bytes. I have used this to troubleshoot slow boot up times exactly as you are trying to do. Forget merely looking at active disk %, you need more detailed information. But this is not for a deeper system issue enough information still... So here is the catch: NTFS files are not shown there! So for example if you had a highly fragmented master file table (MFT or $MFT) or any other NTFS internal $... files and there are more than a few, and this are fragmented it could lead to slow boot times. I use PerfectDisk Professional (you can find it out there ) on occasions to defrag this, and yes even on an SSD, the file system can get fragmented, even if the disk itself does not get fragmented or need defragmenting. Hence SSD mode defragmentation which is much lighter on the disk and faster as it focuses on the MFT. The boot time defrag is needed for some of these files. Granted on a fresh install one would hope they are not fragmented, but I find especially when installing a lot of files for development software among other things, a mess always results. Too generalize this further, and maybe more importantly than the prior point, low level disk drivers which are doing their own accessing of the disk are not shown in this tool. I don't know any good tool to reveal all of this activity though a kernel level filter driver should be able to get into the chain and dump out the information. Probably tools exist. This would be able to show even those NTFS files or the boot sectors, or any other low level file system activity which could be effecting that time. It would be wonderful to have a full kernel driver activity log which is properly simplified to human readable form for a full boot process - sorting that data, and the key bottlenecks would be come immediately obvious. @Kurapica: how are Windows version, a friendly browser like Chrome, RAM or paging part of the branches of the system which are involved in this?

    I want to say only 2 things in this post, since I come to tuts4you to read up on technicals and not for useless conversations like this: In regards to the above, let me ask you this: Do you deny making the posts referenced to, on this page and which were originally made here? Do you also deny making these posts referenced here? I wanted to look at this from an impartial angle but if you had made those posts on EXE-TOOLS in the past... I do agree that the blog looks childish but the references and screenshots alluded to Chants there were really made on EXE-TOOLS and they still exist there to this day. Yes, in a nutshell that article had indeed been reviewed by medical professionals and there are clear warnings at the bottom of that article: Salt water flushes are not a good option for everyone, and speaking to a doctor before starting a salt water flush is essential. Again, it is worth remembering that the body can cleanse and flush itself without additional help. It may be recommended that those with high blood pressure, digestive issues, kidney or heart disease, or other serious medical conditions should avoid saline flushes and colon cleanses. Salt water cleanses are not to be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women or children. and There is limited if any scientific evidence to support the use of saline flushes. However, there are many personal experiences that are noted on the internet, discussing practices with this cleanser. But further research is needed in this area to determine the efficacy and safety of colon cleansing. You did not post any such warnings in your original post and people could have been killed had anyone tried them out without medical supervision. Sangavi has also posted some useful anecdotal info above that I agree with. In summary, you have seriously goofed up here since you are not a medical professional and did not realize the serious and oftentimes fatal consequences of volume overloading a patient in renal failure or a failing heart. In both instances it can lead to severe cardiac decompensation dependent on the volume overload from the administered fluid and also cause fulminant pulmonary edema. It is alright to make a mistake but trying to reference articles that clearly are out of content in order to support your blundered posts could very well endanger someone's life/lives.

    Using free add-ons is not a good idea in most cases. Either they track and use your info (sell in some cases) or they swap the IPs of their users depending on the users meeting each others' country IP requirements. Either way I say that better to go for a paid one. Cloudflare does not generally block IPs unless in extreme cases. We use CF commercially now and even with the free plan that was not the issue. The Captchas are mainly Google's products and they tend to be a real PITA! Free solutions generally are either slow or have already been seriously abused (mostly by spammers). So they will actually add to your problem. At a certain point of time you would need to decide if you should go for paid solutions and then go for them. They give you a lot of peace of mind in the long run. @LCF-AT, in the end it all boils down to the fact that your IP had been heavily abused in the past (by spammers in most cases, but also by hackers in some cases). This is generally the solution that solves your problem, albeit that it costs you a little money: You can try talking to your ISP. Many ISPs sell you static IPs at a reasonable price. Just buy one and keep using it. This is what some of my friends do and it solves the problems related to "Bad IPs" when the other solutions did not.

    Well CF is trying to block DoS attacks so slowing traffic with captchas and banning IPs is their business. Unequal and not fair for sure but it's all about containment and mitigation techniques. It's not fair people are quarantined because their friend they saw recently got sick. But it contains the virus and mitigates the risk. I think captchas and many systems nowadays can measure mouse movement and use some AI algorithms to determine if it's natural or artificial, which has made captchas generally more easy and convenient, and really can require simulating a good deal of the system to fake.

    These days many providers in the US do not change the IP often, in order to make their record-keeping and surveillance easier. I hear its the same for many European countries as well. So simpley turning it off for a while or even overnight does not help, at least not for me. When I call my ISP I am asked a dozen questions and they sometimes give me a new IP, sometimes don't.

    Use of Tor leads to even more nasty captchas on most of the sites! Doesn't work in many countries where they use either cable-based or fiber-optic internet. In the US for ex, you need to call up the ISP if you need an IP change, or wait for a few months till they change it on their own... The best way is to get a good VPN and use it. Most of us do that.

    Everything in the article rings true, from my personal experience. I initially got into RCE before I took any classes at college, and it has helped out my education and early career a ton. I have been employed for a couple years, doing general software development, about to pivot into something more security/reversing focused. The concepts learned here and other forums that were active a few years ago, made it possible to cruise through my college degree without any problems, and I was able to secure a full time job before I graduated. Security knowledge makes you a better programmer in general as well. Knowing the opcodes your compiler will translate your code into can help you optimize areas of your code, and you can solve problems with snippets of asm, and other neat tricks used in reverse engineering, those other developers don't know about. You can fix some bugs faster because you think about the problem different than everyone else.
