When attempting to launch smbclient via the Backtrack menu in Backtrack Linux version 5 release 3 you will receive an error stating there is no such file or directory.

Tonight I was working on creating some some listeners that run automatically on boot in Ubuntu.

Its funny because this is one thing in Windos which always bothered me and now it happening on my mac as well. Even when you uninstall software , system start-up files are still left behind and can still load up at boot time. You can speed up your boot time and reduce unnecessary system bloat from OS X by removing old system start-up files that you no longer need. if this is happening to you read on its very easy to edit the start up programs list.

I don’t typically use Windows Live Mail so even some of the more basic items are foreign to me including the fact that by default Windows Live Mail does not show the typical menu bar as you would expect in Windows XP. The menu bar includes top level menu items such as File, Edit, View, Go, Tools, Actions, and Help. By default Windows Live Mail looks like the below image.
