The Easiest way to install any install qbittorrent or any other application in Kali Linux

One of the major reasons why the installations fail is due to non updated repositories. we end up with responses such as


'E: Unable to locate package qbittorrent'


 The solution is here and I will demonstrate using qbittorrent installation in Kali Linux


Step 1:  fact one is that Kali linux base repositories are debian based.


On the root  terminal window type "leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list"


for example in my case it is :


root@ksnaves:~# leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list


Step2:  The source list which is a text file will pop up. Copy and paste this  commands below  on the source list and save.


deb http://http.kali.org/ /kali main contrib non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/ /wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main/debian-installer
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main/debian-installer
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free 

deb http://http.packages.debian.org import deb packages


 Step3: Update using the command on the terminal    - " apt-get update"


for example in my case it is root@ksnaves:~# apt-get update


wait for the repository to update 





step 4: Now install your software of choice. in my case it is qbittorrent.


as follows  Open the terminal and type the command apt-get install qbittorrent 


on my case  it is


root@ksnaves:~# apt-get install qbittorrent      and hit on enter button


After few seconds you will be provided with the question Y/N on whether to install or not....Of course Hit Y on the keyboard for Yes


Step 5: Now qbittorrent is installed, type command  qbittorrent on the root terminal window and press enter

UEFI Bootloader in Windows 8.1 failed ( such as 0xc00007b error fix)

To windows enthusiasts.

when windows cannot boot, most a times your mind also fails to boot and you spend a whole day running away from basic solutions; Trying the most complex of offered solutions in the forum.

Here under I list one of the solution to correct the failed boot loader starting based on a known user experience..."Windows didn't load properly error...0xc00007b  "

 Proposed solution 1: Remove the most recent updates and software updates that took place before the crash.

Boot from a recovery windows 8 recovery drive perhaps a USB. or boot from the recovery Partition of your Hard drive 

when the computer boots from Recovery media ...


1.choose the troubleshoot option 


2. Click on Advanced Options 


3. click on  Windows Start up settings 



5. Select Restart and as the Computer Restarts key in 4 or F4 to go to safemode

6. Log in using your normal credentials to safe mode.


7. Go to programs and feature 

8. select uninstall programs ....on the listed programs check the "installed on" column, check the antivirus(the culprit was AVG protection updates in our case) or any recent updated software . uninstall it.

9.Go to windows update and uninstall any update that took place most recent before the crash. 


Restart the computer and  it is sorted.


 Proposed solution 2: Using Hirens Boot CD  for Windows non EUFI

1.Download the most recent Hirens boot from Here   or  This source too  ( I used Hirens 15.2 ISO).
2. Install Virtual Drive Software such as WinCDEmu   to mount the Downloaded image on virtual drive
3. Click on HBCDMenu.exe to run the Hiren Programs
4. Go to command line and run MbrFix utility
