The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.

How To Hide The Administrator Account In Windows


If you like things to be neat and tidy, you can remove the Administrator account from the Windows login screen. Here's how to make the Administrator account invisible.

On every PC you’ll find an Administrator account. This is useful for allowing higher-level system changes, but you shouldn't be using it as your normal day-to-day Windows account. These privileges would present significant security risks. Chances are you are using a different account anyway, but just want to stop the Administrator account from showing up on your login screen next to the other accounts. Here we’ll show you how to make a couple of quick adjustments to your system which will make the Administrator account invisble, but without actually disabling it.

How To Make The Administrator Account Invisible In Windows 7
The easiest way to clean up the login screen is to require users to enter both their username and password; this means that you’ll only ever see one prompt rather than the multiple icon boxes. To do this you’ll need to be logged in to your Administrator account. First off, press the Windows key, then type regedit into the search box. 

Now navigate through the menu in the left hand pane to the following folder - 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

In this folder you’ll find the file dontdisplaylastusername, which is the one you’ll need to edit. Right click on the file and select Modify. A pop up box will appear with a space for entering the ‘Value data’. Type 1 then press ok. That’s it, now all you have to do is close regedit, log off, and when you return to the login screen you’ll see an empty box with two fields for username and password below it.
How To Make The Administrator Account Invisible In Windows 8
The process is almost exactly the same in Windows 8 and 8.1. From the Windows Start screen start typing regedit, then when it pops up in the list of options in the right hand column double click on it to launch the application.

Now it’s pretty much identical to the Windows 7 method. So navigate to -

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Right click on the dontdisplaylastusername file, click modify, then change the value in the pop up box to 1 and click OK.

 Log off and you’ll be presented with the standard username and password log in option.

How To Make The Administrator Account Visible Again
Follow the exact same instructions as above for either system, then when you modify the dontdisplaylastusername file set the value to 0. Now your system will be back to the way it was originally.

Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
