Maybe you heard about TIDAL, the paid music stream service that allows access over 25 million tracks in FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) and ALAC (Apple Lossless) formats.

These formats are uncompressed and their audio is in high resolution.
To give you the idea, TIDAL strem at 1411Kbps while Spotify 320Kbps (Vorbis) and iTunes 256Kbps (AAC).

If you want to hear the quality here is a list of sites where you can download hi-res music for free:

2l.no label offer some samples in this format, as well as theBlue Coast Records label (you need to register).

Submit your e-mail and you can download free samples from HDTracks.

Ektoplazm offer electronic music in this format.

of course you need also a player, here is a good list from the official site of the audio codec.

In some cases you need to edit/repair Windows boot, for example if you have a dual boot Linux/Windows and want remove Linux or when some programs modify boot adding new boot entries (generally to start these programs in a safe environment).

If you want to delete these bootloaders (eg. GRUB, GRUB4DOS) and restore the original Windows bootloader you can use two useful free programs: EasyBCD and Dual boot Repair tool.

The first, available for free by choosing the Community Edition version, allows to easily edit the boot and add new boot entries or delete existing ones.
Another useful feature is the BCD (Boot Configuration Data) Backup/Repair.

The other program, for Windows 7, 8, Vista, XP has a simple menu that allows: repair BCD, backup/export BCD, restore/import BCD, repair the MBR, this is very useful when you don’t have the original Windows installation disc that allows to repair the Master Boot Record.

These software works in Windows, but if the operating system doesn’t start because the boot has problems what you can do?
You can use another free software, AOMEI PE Builder that allows to create a bootable disc/USB based on Windows PE (Preinstallation Environment). It has various utilities, included BOOTICE, it allows to manage the boot and also restore it. There is also Partition Assistant included, the disk management software by AOMEI, it has many features, included the rebuild of MBR.

When you download a free software you must pay attention to “fake” download buttons that often are in free software sites (but not only) like Download.com, Tucows, FileHippo, Softonic, Softpedia, SnapFiles etc…
Just go over with mouse and you can see that the link is not the real for download.
If you click you could be redirected to ads pages or even download software that contains adware/malware.

You can also use the useful Greasemonkey (Firefox addon) / Tampermonkey (Chrome extension) Fake-Download Bypasser and AntiAdware scripts that allows to download only the real software.

You must also pay attention to the installation procedure of downloaded software as they can include PUPs (Potentially unwanted programs), like toolbars, background applications that can monitor/trace user activities, etc…
The main raccomandation is to download the software only from official sites of developers.

During installation process can be show various offers of these unwanted software, just uncheck all the checkboxes or click Decline.

To avoid the installation of that junkware you can use the free software Unchecky, it automatically uncheck the checkboxes.

If you had installed that unwanted software accidentally you can use free programs to remove them, there are various one very popular and working good like Malwarebytes, Spybot Search & Destroy, AdwCleaner; they allows you to perform a system scan and the remove the related files and registry entries found.
