Google accounts are a treasure trove of personal data for identity thieves. We’ve already covered setting up two-step authentication to secure your Google account, but there are a few more tricks you may not know about.

These Google features provide easy ways to monitor your account’s access history, manage the websites that can access your account, and control private information that may be leaking onto the Web.

Monitor Account Activity

Buried at the bottom of your Gmail inbox, you’ll find a Last Account Activity indicator. It’ll tell you when your account was last accessed; click the Details link to see more information.

The details window shows you your account activity at a glance. You’ll find a Recent Activity List here — as I can see from the * indicators and the IP address at the bottom of the window, all account activity is coming from my current IP address.

If there was activity coming from an unusual IP address — perhaps one half way around the world — I’d get an alert because my alert preference is to prompt on unusual account activity. This is the default. If the alert is disabled, you’ll probably want to click Change and set it to alert you.

If there active sessions elsewhere — maybe you forgot to log out on a public computer? — use the Sign Out All Other Sessions button to forcibly close them.

Check Authorized Sites & Apps

Website and apps can ask for permission to access your Google account. If you’ve been trying out various web services and apps, some of them may still have access to your account, even if you no longer use them.

First, open the Account Settings page from anywhere on Google.

On the Account Settings page, click the Edit link next to Authorizing Applications & Sites.

After entering your password, you’ll see the list of sites and apps that have access to your Google account.

Each website or app can have different permissions. Ones with permission to "Sign in using your Google account” can’t do anything more than use your Google account to confirm your identity, while ones with "Full Account Access” have access to your entire account. Many apps are somewhere in between — for example, the Picnik image editor has access to my Picasa Web Albums here. Other apps could have access to your Gmail account.

If you don’t use an app or website anymore, or just don’t like how many permissions it requires, click the Revoke Access link to remove access.

Check the Dashboard

Google’s Dashboard shows you everything Google knows about you. At the bottom of the Account Settings page where you found the Authorizing Applications & Sites link, click the "Visit the previous version of the Google accounts screen” link.

On the following page, click the "View data stored with this account” link.

From here, you can see what you’re sharing with the entire Internet or other Google users. Look for the icon that looks like a group of three people to see what you’re sharing. If you don’t want to share specific data, use the links next to the service to manage your shared data.

You can also remove data you don’t want Google to have. For example, if you’re done using Chrome and don’t want Google to remember your browser data, cl ... Read more »

Windows 7 offers you location specific Aero themes based on the language and location you pick during installation.  Here we will take a look at accessing other hidden themes from different countries.

When you first start the Windows 7 installation the first thing you will do is select a language, time and currency format.  This is where Windows determines what themes you’re presented with by default.

2Inst

Being from the US I’m presented with location specific themes from the United States with desktop backgrounds such as scenery from Maine, Idaho, Oregon etc.

To access the other international themes copy and paste the following path into the search box and hit Enter.

C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT

In the MCT folder you will find additional themes for Canada, Australia, South Africa, and Great Britain.

 

You can go in and grab just the Wallpapers…

Or go into the Theme folder double click on the the thumbnail to add it. 

Here you can see I added all of them and now they will be available under the My Themes section for when you want to change them around.

This is a neat little trick that will let you customize Windows 7 with hidden themes already available.  Also if you want to get more themes head over to the Microsoft site.

windows-8-featuresOver the years Microsoft has launched many flavors of Operating Systems under their Windows brand. From single-user to multi-user and from single-tasking to multi-tasking, Windows has grown so much and is able to keep the IT folks both at enterprise level and individual level. In spite of challenges raised by other operating systems like Mac and Unix, Windows has become a steady companion of businesses. New versions of Windows will accommodate the required hardware and software changes which will take place on a continuous basis.

Windows 8 being released in the coming months is going to introduce some interesting new features -

Simplified Task Manager

Task Manager is redesigned to offer both simple plus more detailed view. The new interface will display the names of running applications without mentioning the processes and statistics. You can quickly stop the application which is not responding. Additional details can be obtained by clicking on ‘More Details’ button. It will show a wealth of information about the system resource utilization on application-wise and other parameters of concern. This Windows 8 feature will be useful for both normal users and power users.

Built-in Virtualization Technology

Windows 8 brings enhanced virtualization technology replacing Virtual PC Component of Windows 7. Microsoft’s virtualization tool named after Hyper-V brings virtualization technology to client level which was restricted to enterprise usage earlier. This facility helps individuals and businesses run other operating systems virtually. It is also possible to run older Windows OS using this feature. Businesses get benefit by being able to run applications which were designed to run on old versions of operating systems. Businesses will have edge by being able to access Hyper-V as part of the operating system instead of much established third party service provider, VMware.

Metro Interface

The new metro interface can be attributed to the fancies entertained by Microsoft. This new interface is designed to accommodate touch screen computers and tablets which can implement HTML 5 and CSS 3 versions. The new interface allows you to navigate through multiple applications where you can catch each application live. For example, you can catch live sports action or live stock report as you toggle through the web information. Even though it has less business value, the new metro interface will certainly entertain the end users.

Quick Boot-up

Microsoft has promised that new Windows 8 will load much faster than earlier versions. It is observed that developer version of windows 8 loads in just six seconds. Windows 7 takes approximates 90 seconds before it gets ready to take command from the user. Even though 6 seconds is not practical with final version (as developer build will not add all the extra weights), it is expected that Windows 8 will come with quick boot up time than ever before. This has to be one of the most awaited Windows 8 feature for sure.

Windows to Go

Cloud based storage is sweeping IT departments. Those who are having security concerns are not willing to adapt to cloud based storage which helps access the data from various locations and through various devices. ‘Windows to Go‘ is clever alternative for those who don’t wish to comprise with the data or who would like to wait until the cloud based storage reaches a certain level of sophistication in terms of data integrity. Windows to Go allows users to carry on the applications, data and OS through the thumb drive. You can simply insert the thumb drive in the new system and continue the work from the previous point.

This list is NOT exhaustive for sure and there are many more exciting features lined up for the final release of Windows 8. Do let us know if you have any personal favorite amongst the upcoming Windows 8 features.

Ubuntu vs. Windows

Operating System (OS) plays a very important role in a desktop or laptop or your mobile phone. It is system software that prepares the ground for playing different applications by effectively translating user commands to be processed on the hardware. It unleashes the hardware’s capability to perform multiple tasks enthusing users all the time. The system will be live as long as the OS is live. The proprietary software from Microsoft, Windows has made its way in the lives of millions of people across the globe. Windows is able to lead the OS market even though there is competition from Mac OS and UNIX based open source software, Ubuntu.

We shall find the pros and cons of Ubuntu 11.04 vis-a-vis Windows 7.

  • Even though Ubuntu is evolving over a period of years as an open source OS, it was not much successful in desktop line with some exception in deployment in servers and embedded systems. As Ubuntu is free software, you are free to use and distribute. You can customize the OS to the maximum possible extent. The only cost involved in procuring Ubuntu OS is your download time from the site. On the other hand, Windows 7 is to be purchased and there is no chance for customization.
  • Comparatively, the boot time with Ubuntu is quicker than Window 7. Ubuntu is faster on both old and new hardware whereas Windows 7 is faster than Vista on old hardware.
  • While Ubuntu can detect some hardware peripherals automatically, for some you need to work with command line which will be a tedious process. Almost all device manufacturers will issue a drivers CD, so working with Windows 7 is easy and at the same, Windows 7 has not completely resolved driver issues.
  • Coming to multimedia, DVD playing capacity will not come with Ubuntu. It has to be installed separately. Windows 7 fares better with Media Center with its ability to organize pictures, audio and video files.
  • For software applications you need to download applications in the lines of iPhone to perform certain operations on Ubuntu. You can download these applications from Osalt. Ubuntu offers Open office for word processing and Gimp, photo editing software. These are open source software. Ubuntu handles mail through ‘Evolution’ client. It is difficult to install Skype or Google Earth by average users in Ubuntu. It has to improve in this aspect. With Windows 7 you need to purchase MS Office or you can install free software, Open Office or Gimp. Outlook works as email client in Windows 7. Windows 7 comes with windows live messenger and Internet Explorer 8.
  • Ubuntu comes with Ubuntu software center to add and remove applications. Ubuntu fares well with ‘Cloud Computing’. ‘Ubuntu One Service’ is the free cloud storage offered by Ubuntu. You can save files up to 2 GB on Ubuntu one service. The service is integrated with OS. More space can be availed by pay plans. It is possible to share files which are on cloud storage. User interface of Ubuntu has to improve a lot. It lags behind Mac and Windows. Even though it will be entertaining to use Ubuntu by checking the new stuff released frequently, it is not a stable OS for production purposes. On the other hand, Windows 7 fares well as production software.
  • While the learning curve is more with Ubuntu than Windows 7, it offers great security closer to 100% whereas there are so many security issues to be fixed on Windows 7.

Ubuntu 11.1 aka Oneiric Ocelot will be released on 13 October 2011 and would not include the classic GNOME desktop as a fall back to Unity, unlike Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Instead, 11.10 will include a 2D version of Unity as a fallback for computers that lack the hardware resources for the Compiz-based 3D version.

As 3D printing has become more affordable the technology has started to become extremely popular with people who need to create accurate 3D models quickly and cheaply. Product designers, for instance, can use 3D printers to quickly produce models allowing them to easily test look and feel of concept designs in real world situations. Architects can easily create precision scale models of buildings, rather than spending days building them by hand. And vehicle manufacturers can develop and tweak new car designs quicker and cheaper than ever before.

Consumer websites, such as 3D Creation Lab, already exist; allowing customers to design their own 3D models online, get them ‘printed’ and have them posted directly to you. Many even believe that, in the future, we will actually be able to design and ‘print’ out own furniture and perhaps even entire buildings.

The technology behind 3D printing is not massively different to traditional inkjet printers except, instead of ink, 3D printer heads ‘print’ layers of plastic, resin, powder, paper, metal or even food. Yes, you read that last one correctly, there has even been a 3D printer created that uses chocolate.

The process starts by creating a 3D model using special software. This can be done manually, or by using a state-of-art 3D scanner. These advanced 3D scanners work by capturing hundreds of images of an object every minute, using a geometric grid system to collect the 3D data. The data is then stitched back together by the scanner software, although human input is often required to tidy up the finished 3D image, removing noise, adding texture and color and filling in missing data.

The final image is then transmitted to the 3D printer which ‘prints’ the image in much the same way a normal inkjet prints on paper, whilst also adding an additional 3rd axis in order to make the finished item three dimensional.

With such amazing technology so readily available, you would imagine then that copyright infringement will soon be rife. Criminals around the world must be rubbing their hands at the thought of being able to simply point a scanner at an object and then create an exact replica. Well, maybe one day, but not just yet. Whilst 3D printing technology does indeed make it possible to replicate almost anything, that’s pretty much what you get – a replica. For starters different 3D printers work in different ways and so inputting the same information into each machine will produce several different results. Not only that but currently 3D printers are only available with a limited number of substrates, so for instance a scan of a piece of gold jewellery will be accurately replicated, but only in a limited number of materials. The unique quality of gold itself, much like many other materials, cannot yet be accurately reproduced.

So whilst Scotland Yard can rest easy for now, who knows what the future will bring. As 3D printing technology continues to develop and more and more materials become available to print with, who knows where this technology will take us. Maybe we will indeed one day be able to print our own house or even create exact replicas of anything and everything.

So, you’ve just spent a hefty chunk of your paycheck on a new router, and you gradually begin to realize that its speed isn’t exactly up to par. Luckily, this normally doesn’t have anything to do with the quality of the router. The problem most likely lies with the way it is configured and/or positioned. A weak wifi signal or slow transfer speed can be troublesome, but you’ll be happy to know that there are some simple things that you can do to remedy this issue.

1. Consider its position – Most people are under the impression that it doesn’t matter where in the house the router it placed because they think the signal will be great regardless of its position. This is actually very far from the truth. The truth is that knowing where exactly to place your router can be the difference between a strong signal and a weak signal. Remember, the weaker the signal is, the slower the connection will be. Place your router in a strategic place such as the center. If your house has three floors, place it in near the center on the second floor. You’ll also need to make sure that there aren’t any obstructions such as metal objects or brick walls. Obstructions such as these can really cut a wifi signal down to size.

2. Purchase a repeater – You may have found that moving your wireless router hasn’t exactly solved the problem. If this is the case, a repeater is very likely to remedy the issue. A repeater is simply a device that is placed within the wireless network’s range, and it simply broadcasts the wireless signal even further. These are particularly helpful if you’ve got an exceptionally long or narrow home, or if you’ve got a multiple story home.

3. Try changing the router’s channel – The truth is that many electronic household objects operate on a radio frequency just as your router does, and if they’re operating on the same frequency, things could get hairy. You could ultimately troubleshoot the issue by changing your router’s channel. This can be done in your within your router’s settings, and it’s simply for almost anybody to do it. However, there are a few programs on the market that will do this for you in the case that you don’t feel comfortable messing around in the settings, and one of them is called "NetStumbler.”

4. Make sure your problem isn’t the wireless adapter – It’s always recommended that you don’t always narrow the problem down to your router. If you’ve been using the same wireless adapter to connect to your network all along and you’re still experiencing trouble, you may want to take a closer look at your wireless adapter. To check if the adapter is the problem, bring it to a friend’s house or public place that has free wifi. If your wireless adapter has trouble with the signal in other places too, it may very well be your culprit. Purchase another wireless adapter to rule all possibilities out other than your router.

5. Try updating your router’s firmware as well as relevant drivers – The truth is that hardware developers aren’t perfect, and not all devices are going to work flawlessly. The problem you’re experiencing may be a result of outdated firmware or drivers, so go ahead and get the latest of each for your router and adapters. The router’s firmware can typically be updated through the gateway settings, and adapter drivers can usually be found on the manufacturer’s website.

The growth of Google’s Android Operating System for mobiles has been beyond all expectations. As perGartner’s Report, Android accounted for 25.5 percent of worldwide smartphone sales, making it the No. 2 OS, just behind Symbian. Exactly a year ago Android’s market share was 3.5 percent. Growth driver for Android is that it has been adopted by all major handset manufacturers in the world (except for Nokia, Blackberry and Apple, who have their own OS). Another key growth driver, is the availability of Android mobiles across all price segments and form factors (both touchscreen and QWERTY mobiles).

The title might sound shocking for some and may be absurd for many others. But this is true. Google’s Android devices are outselling Apple’s iPhones according to a report just released by NPD, a leading market research company. The report says that the strong sales of Droid, Droid Eris, etc. from Verizon Wireless made it possible for the Android to take the lead over Apple’s OS.

android-iphone

It is true that whenever we refer to Android phones, it is a combination of multiple mobile phones running on the Google Android operating system, while Apple has just one model – iPhone competing against all these Android phones. Still, this is a matter of great significance since it is the first time ever the Android based phones have been sold more than iPhones.

Soon enough we will see that Google’s open sourced operating system – Android will overpower Apple’s Iphone OS in terms of market share, majorly due to the fact there are multiple handsets, manufacturers and carriers using Android. Given the market share, it will also result in higher App support for the Android phones and better sales when it comes to App store.

What this means for App developers and app lovers?

The developers will now get additional incentive to develop more and more apps for Android phones, since they now have a higher market share to target and moreover they need not face those stringent rules of Apple’s app-store.

Having said that, Apple has multiple devices running their iPhone OS – like iPod Touch and iPads. Also a new iPhone model is due for release this quarter which should still keep the developers interesting.

These days, it seems that consumer technology is going more and more mobile, as we see powerful smartphones renewing at more faster cycles, not to mention the revolutionary tablet market which seems to conquer more and more fields of human activity. Wherever we go, we can carry our electronic buddies with us, thus we are always in the middle of information and society. But, with great diversity and versatility in mobile technology, comes even bigger responsibility.

Steadily, but surely, our smartphones and tablets  are developing into universal devices, replacing more and more gadgets that were once used to have a solitary purpose. It quite scares me to see that soon enough, our financial information will also be handled by our mobile phones. Google has already released the Google Wallet application and we expect Apple do endow iPhone 5 or its successor with NFC.

That’s why, when your mobile phone plays such an important role in your life, you have to be sure about its security and the safeness of your data inside. We did some research and found 10 mobile antiviruses that should protect your mobile phone, be it an Android, iPhone or another one. It was pretty hard to find the best one, so feel free to use the one that best suits your needs.

1. ESET Mobile Security

This version is suitable only for Windows Mobile and Symbian enabled phones, but we are sure that soon enough the security giant will realize how important it is to have an iPhone and Android version. You should be ready to pay $30/year to protect your mobile device.

2. Kaspersky Mobile Security 9

Kaspersky’s version for mobile security looks as neat as the "big brother” version. As with ESET mobile, you will have to pay the same amount and it is also said that it only works with one phone. That could be the same with other programs as well, meaning the software will work only for one phone as it will have an unique code. This program is compatible with Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian; still no iPhone version.

We all know how annoying Ads can be on the screen of your Android device. The tiny screen, the never ending ads; it’s a nightmare! Although they are a way for app developers to make a living, and everyone should support them by any means necessary (buying premium apps, donating or clicking when you are really interested), they can be annoying and playing a game, using an app or just surfing can be quite irritating. Now, I’ll show you how to remove these ads from your Android phone, but keep in mind, there are different methods of blocking ads on rooted Androids and un-rooted Androids. While for rooted phones, all you have to do is install another app that takes care of the ads, on a un-rooted phone, the options are not that simple.

1. AdFree

This app is available on the Android Market and it’s really effective. You don’t have to spend too much time customizing it and it does the job really good (just download it from the Android Market and after install, click "Download & Install Hosts”. Although, for AdFree to work on your phone, you have to have it rooted. AdFree uses MVPS HOSTS file to filter the information and add to its blacklist the ads. After installing AdFree you must install the HOSTS file and restart your device, you also have to restart after any custom change to the app (such as manually adding an ad address to the blacklist).

Android is proving to be a loved OS, and it should be: it’s fun and easy to use and it’s fast! Its no wonder why so many people want it on their PC’s and laptops. There are a few methods of enjoying Android on something else other a phone and all work really good. I’ll be honest to you, it sounded stupid when I first heard of this, but after trying this on my old (useless) laptop, I saw how great is to play some Android games on your big desktop!

1. Blue Stacks

First of all, this is a Windows 7 Widget that looks like a Android home-screen, called BlueStacks. It allows users to play some Android games and use apps pre-loaded or download an additional 26 apps from BlueStacks app store, where they have to register via a Facebook account.

The apps run in full-screen mode and on the bottom of the screen, it has the Android Menu, Back, Rotate and Zoom buttons. Though its a little odd playing on the Android platform from a keyboard and mouse, on a notebook with a multi-touch pad, the sensation is quite nice. Another cool feature of BlueStacks is the Cloud Connect, which let’s you send and receive apps between your phone and PC.

2. Live CD

The second way to use Android on a computer is to install it from a liveCD or an USB memory stick. This process is a little more complicated, it requires the download of 2 separate image files and "fusing” them before burning to a CD or memory stick (you will have to select different images for the liveCD and USB memory stick, so be careful what you chose).

The project is called Android-x86and it consists of a team that tries to provide a solution for Android on Eee PC’s and x86 platforms. The team managed to work up to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but we are confident they will soon have Honeycomb ready for the x86 consumers. To create a liveCD or a bootable USB drive, using LiveAndroid, you have to follow these 3 steps:

  1. download the liveandroidv0.3.iso.001 and liveandroidv0.3.iso.002 (for the liveCD version)
  2. download HJSPLIT and use it to merge the 2 images – HJSPLIT is a simple tool for .iso modification, and you can download it free
  3. burn the new image with Nero of any other image burning tool (Image Burn, PowerISO etc)
  4. boot the CD and run / install Android on your computer

The Motorola PRO+ has 5 MP camera with autofocus and Dual-LED flash technology. It plays almost all types of audio and video formats. The supported audio formats are MP3/WAV/WMA/AAC+ and the video formats are MP4/WMV/H.263/H.264. It has 3.5 mm stereo audio jack, so you can also use your personal headphones for great sound quality. The phone has all the basic connectivity options you would expect in any new Android Smartphone. It has EDGE, 3G, HSDPA and HSUPA. It also offers Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, EDR and also comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA, Wi-Fi Hotspot. Micro USB 2.0 connectivity is simply very flexible.

In order to keep your Motorola PRO+ Smartphone alive for long working hours you need to work on proper management ofbattery life.

Here are few tips mentioned below for proper management of battery life.

Connectivity Options:
Motorola PRO+ Smartphone has Wi–Fi support. When you turn ON the Wi–Fi settings then don’t forget to turn OFF when not in use. Because when Wi–Fi is ON it drains the battery, so try to avoid the frequent use Wi–Fi setting. Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, EDR support will help you to transfer your data and stream media. So when you turn ON Bluetooth setting for transferring of data then don’t forget to turn OFF the Bluetooth setting after its usage, because continuous ON position helps to drain the battery.

Wi-Fi Setting

Display:
Avoid keeping brightness level at higher position. Major battery drain problem is the brightness level of the mobile. Maximum the phone brightness level drains the battery faster. So to avoid this major battery drain problem, keep the brightness level as low as viewable ideally. Try to avoid putting live wallpaper setting on your Motorola PRO+, because livewallpaper settings drain the battery quickly. Auto rotation of screen must be turned OFF in order to save battery. Auto rotation uses accelerometer and if the usage is restricted then it can help in increasing battery life.

Display

GPS Settings:
Motorola PRO+ Smartphone has GPS support. If the GPS is turned ON, it continuously searches for the location. Because of this it drain small amount battery power. By disabling the GPS you can save that small amount of battery power. Only turn ON the GPS when you require. It is recommended to use GPS only when you are outdoors.

GPS Setting

Automatic Updates settings:
In Android phones most of the applications have their check for updates setting as ON and they run in the background, which further drains the battery fast. So just disable these types of settings, which use frequent check for updates. Whether or not you have limited applications that automatically check the internet, your Motorola PRO+ is still active and checking almost all of the time. This is a part of the reason why you may see major battery drain even though the phone was idle for a while.

Multimedia Features:
Motorola PRO+ Smartphone comes with Dual-LED Flash light with autofocus facility. On ... Read more »

Hello,

Many of us face a lot of problem when we have to reinstall windows on our computer or laptop. First thing we have to decide from where to install windows? The options available are DVD or USB Pendrive. In the latest new netbooks, mostly there is no DVD drive. So if you want to install windows you have to go with the other option, i.e. USB Pendrive. So here I give a brief and 100% tested tutorial on how to create a Windows 7 Bootable USB Pendrive to install Windows 7 from USB Pendrive.

First thing, you should check whether your BIOS supports booting from USB. Most of the computer/laptops support. But if your BIOS doesn’t, then sorry, you cannot boot from a USB Pendrive.

Second thing, you need another computer with Windows installed with a DVD drive, to copy its contents later.

So let us start with the procedure now:

1) Run command prompt (cmd). This can be done by clicking start and typing typing cmd in Windows 7. In Windows Xp, click on start and then click on run. Type cmd and run. This will open the command prompt which will look like this:

2) Then run diskpart utility from command prompt, by typing ‘diskpart’ on command prompt and pressing enter. This will run the diskpart utility in a separate windows, which is shown in 2nd picture below:

3) Now put in your pendrive in a USB port. Your pen drive must be atleast 4 GB, 8 GB pendrive is best for this purpose. Now go back to the diskpart console and type ‘listdisk’ and press enter. This will list the various storage devices available. You can see the size column of the disk and here we can see that ‘disk 2′ is our pen drive. Warning: In your computer it may be some other number. In our case it is ‘disk 2′.

4) Then you have to type ‘select disk 2′ and press enter. Note: in our case it is disk 2, in your case it may be disk 3, or disk 1 or any other number. You can enter ‘detail disk’ to see the details of the disk after selecting it to verify that you have selected the correct disk. You can see these steps in the image below:


5) Then you have to run a series of commands. The commands to be run in the order are:- clean

- create partition primary

- select partition 1

- active

- format fs=fat32

These steps are shown in the image below:

6) The format step will take some time. You can have a tea or coffee in the meantime and come back. After the format is complete you have to run ‘assign’ command. And after this you can exit diskpart utility by entering the ‘exit’ command. The steps are shown below:

- assign

- exit

- The image below shows all the steps taken from the first step:

7) After the format is complete, put in your original Windows 7 DVD in your DVD drive, or if you have an .iso image of the DVD, mount that image using any virtual drive software like Power ISO.

- Now go to My Computer, and open the contents of DVD Drive. Press ‘ctrl+a’ to select all contents and copy all the contents by pressing ‘ctrl+c’.

- Now go back to My Computer and open the USB Drive and press ‘ctrl+v’ to paste all the contents of DVD into the USB Disk.

 

8) When the copy finishes, you are done just remove the USB Drive safely and use it to install Windows 7 in ... Read more »

Password cracking is the process of recovering secret passwords from data that has been stored in or transmitted by a computer system. A common approach is to repeatedly try guesses for the password.
Most passwords can be cracked by using following techniques : 

1) Hashing :- Here we will refer to the one way function (which may be either an encryption function or cryptographic hash) employed as a hash and its output as a hashed password.
If a system uses a reversible function to obscure stored passwords, exploiting that weakness can recover even 'well-chosen' passwords. 
One example is the LM hash that Microsoft Windows uses by default to store user passwords that are less than 15 characters in length. 
LM hash breaks the password into two 7-character fields which are then hashed separately, allowing each half to be attacked separately. 

Hash functions like SHA-512, SHA-1, and MD5 are considered impossible to invert when used correctly.


2) Guessing :- Many passwords can be guessed either by humans or by sophisticated cracking programs armed with dictionaries (dictionary based) and the user's personal information. Not surprisingly, many users choose weak passwords, usually one related to themselves in some way. Repeated research over some 40 years has demonstrated that around 40% of user-chosen passwords are readily guessable by programs. Examples of insecure choices include:
* blank (none) 
* the word "password", "passcode", "admin" and their derivatives 
* the user's name or login name 
* the name of their significant other or another person (loved one)
* their birthplace or date of birth 
* a pet's name 
* a dictionary word in any language 
* automobile licence plate number 
* a row of letters from a standard keyboard layout (eg, the qwerty keyboard -- qwerty itself, asdf, or qwertyuiop) 
* a simple modification of one of the preceding, such as suffixing a digit or reversing the order of the letters. 
and so on....
In one survery of MySpace passwords which had been phished, 3.8 percent of passwords were a single word found in a dictionary, and another 12 percent were a word plus a final digit; two-thirds of the time that digit was.
A password containing both uppercase &  lowercase characters, numbers and special characters too; is a strong password and can never be guessed.


Check Your Password Strength
 


3) Default Passwords :- A moderately high number of local and online applications have inbuilt default passwords that have been configured by programmers during development stages of software. There are lots of applications running on the internet on which default passwords are enabled. So, it is quite easy for an attacker to enter default password and gain access to sensitive information. A list containing default passwords of some of the most popular applications is available on the internet.
Always disable or change the applications' (both online and offline) default username-password pairs.

4) Brute Force :- If all other techniques failed, then attackers uses brute force password cracking technique. Here an automatic tool is used which tries all possible combinations of available keys on the keyboard. As soon as correct password is reached it displays on the screen.This techniques takes extremely long time to complete, but password will surely cracked.
Long is the password, large is the time taken to brute force it.

5) Phishing :- This is the most effective and easily executable password cracking technique which is generally used to crack the passwords of e-mail accounts, and all those accounts where secret information or sensitive personal information is stored by user such as social networking websites, matrimonial websites, etc.
Phishing is a technique in which the attacker creates the fake login screen and send it to the victim, hoping that the victim gets fooled into entering the account  ... Read more »

General overview of security issues that face the administrator of Linux systems.

Although linux-based operating systems are considerably safer when compared to Windows and Mac OSX, there are still steps that you can take to ensure that your linux box stays safe and protected. In this post I will illustrate a few techniques you can use to keep your machine locked down tight.

1. Firewalls are your guardian angels.

First of all, keep a software firewall active on your system, and restrict access to ports that allow remote access into your system, a good idea is to allow only a few select hosts access to ports used by services such as ssh (port 22) or telnet (port 23). Keeping a firewall in place ensures that you alone dictate who gets to access remote services on your computer and who doesn’t. To set up a firewall in linux, you can use the iptables program which comes standard with most linux distributions. However, iptables is quite difficult and complicated to set up correctly, and you will need to spend some time fiddling with the command line, but it is very flexible and powerful once configured correctly.

If messing about with iptables dosen’t appeal to you, there are frontends to iptables that you can use to set up effective firewalls. One such frontend is ufw (uncomplicated firewall) this program comes standard on ubuntu and is quite simple to set up, to use it you first have to enable it by typing in ’sudo enable ufw’ in the terminal, once the ufw service is active, adding rules is as simple as ’sudo allow 22/tcp’ > this statement allows all tcp traffic on port 22, swap allow for deny and you have the ssh service blocked, Its that simple, much easier than mucking about with iptables.

Of course, there are many people who do not like the idea of using command-line programs and like all their apps to be graphical. If you prefer a GUI configured firewall, then firestarter is the choice for you. Firestarter is a breeze to use, and has good documentation available on the firestarter website.

2. Passwords are for your protection, choose them well

Choose good user passwords, especially for root. One way to choose a secure password is to take a sentence, reduce it to an acronym and then replace some letters of the acronym with symbols and add some numbers to it. this mixing of alphabets, numbers and symbols, along with its long length will be a strong password.

Never use actual words that have meaning as passwords. These types ofpasswords are weak and can be cracked using dictionary attacks. Also along those lines: Never use words that hold personal significance with you.. i.e don’t use passwords that people who know you will be inclined to think that you would use, like a favorite pet’s name.. etc.

And for god’s sake, don’t use the word ‘password’ as a password…. ( don’t laugh… thats one of the most common passwords .. )

3. Use antivirus 

Yeaps you read right.. antivirus. Antivirus on linux you say? Yes, linux has antivirus suites as well , but this is more for cleaning off your thumbdrives that you may have used in an infected windows machine than for killing linux viruses, as the system of user permissions for executing files makes linux a very inhospitable place for computer viruses to live. clamAV is a good antivirus choice, with a GUI version ...

Windows 8 isn’t even out in beta yet, but it has built up quite a bit of buzz. Tech bloggers and analysts have been talking about it for months and months, but beyond the folks at Microsoft and some developers and reviewers, there have been very few who have had the opportunity to go hands on with this operating system.

Even though a lot of folks haven’t been able to try this new operating system, and it isn’t due out for quite some time, there are a lot of hints, tricks and tipsalready out for Windows 8. If you can get your hands on a copy of Windows 8 when it comes out on Beta, the following top 6 Windows 8 tips should help you get started using this brand new OS like a pro.

1. You don’t have to use the Ribbon Interface in the explorer windows.There are many users who may find this feature useful, making it easier to find and open files. Other users may not be so keen on this feature, finding it distracting and bulky. You can change this in the Computer Configuration. From here, select "Administrative Templates,” "Windows Components,” and finally "Windows Explorer.” You will need to select enabled for the "Start Windows Explorer with the Ribbon Minimized” option to hid the ribbons on your next startup.

2. There are plenty of new Keyboard shortcuts. While some of the old keyboard shortcuts will still work, there are some new ones that you get to use with Windows 8. The Windows Key and "W” brings up the settings search. Windows and "C” call up the simple "Start menu” along with the date and time. If you select Windows and "Q” the application search comes up. These are only a small sampling of the new shortcuts that are already known for this new operating system.

3. You can uninstall programs from the Start Menu. This is a handy new feature that will make it much easier to get unwanted programs off of your system. To uninstall a program from your Start Menu in Windows 8, right click on the icon for the program to get rid of select uninstall and click on it a second time. Windows 8 is made for touch screen systems, as they seem to be the next big thing; with touch screen you uninstall programs from the start menu by holding the program icon to get options, selecting uninstallfrom there.

4. Bring back the old control panel interface. If you think the new control panel that Windows 8 offers is a bit too new-fangled, you can get the old one back. Simply open the control panel and select "More Settings” at the bottom of the screen. You will see an option for selecting the old control panelinterface.

5. Login Automatically. To set this feature, open the Run dialogue box and enter "netplwiz” to launch the User Accounts dialog box in Windows 8. Uncheck the option that requires users to enter a user name and password. Then you will need to enter the  ... Read more »

Here are some handy tips for you, by following which you can properly remove any software from your machine:

TIP 1: The simplest way to remove software from your machine is to remove it from control panel that any unprofessional computer user can also do. But, for your convenience, we have mentioned in proper steps.By following these steps, you can easily uninstall any software from your PC:
  • Click on Start button
  • Then, select Control panel and look for Add/ Remove Programs
  • A list will appear (here, you can select any program that you wish to uninstall from your PC)
  • Right click on your desired software and select "Uninstall” (It will take some time to uninstall.So, wait until the uninstall process gets completed.)
  • After the process is complete, you should restart your PC.

And here you go; you have uninstalled the software that was troubling you. Hopefully, this will work perfect, but if it did not work, then you can use the next alternative way(s):

TIP 2: A person who uses his computer 20 or more hours a day, it’s really annoying for him when suddenly his PC starts working very slow.Many of you may already have some idea of why some of our uninstalled programs still reside in our PC’s registry. It is because some entries still stay in ourwindows registry and will stay there until you remove them manually.

To modify/remove registry, go to "Run” and then type "Regedit”. And in Regedit, you can make changes related to your desired software, but if you are not a computer professional, then do not try to mess up with the registry, because it will create more problems if you unintentionally remove/modify the wrong entries.

TIP 3: There is hardly any problem in the online scenario that cannot be resolved by software. There are also many uninstallers available that you can use to uninstall specific programs. Also, there are numerous softwareapplications that provide their own uninstallers with installation packages and you can use them to remove software completely.

The advantage of using these uninstallers is that they exactly know where your installed software had made changes in your system. When you start searching about some software uninstallers, you will see many uninstallers and it will become very difficult to select the perfect one. For this, your can also get recommendations from your friends or computer professionals via any forum. By following these tips, you can easily uninstall your problematicsoftware apps from your machine that were actually creating problems.

You suffer from an absent or steady mobile signal? So this article will help you to resolve this problem. 

Today's high-time human activity is unthinkable without communication and even today when long distances are not a barrier thanks to high-quality provider. The days when a cell phone was remarkable and expensive for everyone are gone.

Through the efforts of mobile operatorscellular phone is no longer a luxury and it has become an integral accessory of a modern man. As concerning mobile communication it is penetrated into the remotest corners of our globe.

However, the situation when the mobile phone receives a signal badly and you can not make or receive calls is familiar for many people. How often do you come to the window or go outside to talk to?

There are areas of unstable reception in any gsm network where you need mobile signal amplification to improve the quality of cellular communication. The hindrance of the passage of radio waves could be massive walls, metal objects and concrete floors of your home. In such conditions the communication by the cell phone is limited or impossible.



The cellular enhancing is achieved through the installation of mobile signal booster:

Where is necessary to strengthen the cellular gsm signal? Anywhere! It can be private houses, cottages and villas; offices, shopping malls and stores; restaurants, bars, clubs; underground car parks and parking; warehouses, hangars, etc. 

First of all to ensure the stability of the cell phone communication and boost cell phone signal will be necessary in country houses, cottages, situated on the slopes and valleys, in basements and other places where radio waves from mobile base stations of cellular operators can not penetrate into the buildings.

Now you do not need to seek a peaceful place to make phone calls, because in your home, shop or office you will not have problems associated with disruption of cellular communication. You will save yourself from having to search the place of reliable reception of cell signal and will be able to do what is really important for you.

How to split up large files / zip archives into several smaller ones for an easier distribution or storage on several disks.

Have your ever wished that you could split a really large video, zip, or MP3 file into smaller files so that you can copy it to multiple CDs or USB sticks? Now that’s it so easy to transfer video onto personal computers, moving these large files between computers can be a real pain. Luckily, there are a few free tools that you can use to split and merge files quickly and easily. So here i'm posting some of the best ways to split large files.

1. GSplit - This application is a free reliable file splitter that lets you split your large files (like Self-Extracting archives, Zip archives, disk images, multimedia, music, video, backup, image, archive, log, large text, document files...) into a set of smaller files called pieces.


2. File Splitter - File Splitter is a freeware program which does not requireinstallation and can be used to split files to multiple chunks as well as to merge multiple chunks into a single file.

 20 Best Hacking and Security Software Tools for Linux

Previously i've posted a tutorial Learn More About Linux Security. Here i'm going to show you some of the best hacking tools for Linux. Linux is a hacker’s dream computer operating system. It supports tons of tools and utilities for cracking passwords, scanning network vulnerabilities, and detecting possible intrusions. I have here a collection of 20 of the best hacking and security software tools for Linux. I'll show you how to install theses tools in Ubuntu, Fedora, Debain, and Open Suse.

1. Nmap ("Network Mapper")


Nmap is a free and open source (license) utility for network exploration or security auditing. Many systems and network administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, but works fine against single hosts. Nmap runs on all major computer operating systems, and both console and graphical versions are available.


2. John the Ripper



John the Ripper is a free password cracking software tool initially developed for the UNIX operating system. It is one of the most popular password testing/breaking programs as it combines a number of password crackers into one package, autodetects password hash types, and includes a customizable cracker. It can be run against various encrypted password formats including several crypt password hash types most commonly found on various Unix flavors (based on DES, MD5, or Blowfish), Kerberos AFS, and Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 LM hash. Additional modules have extended its ability to include MD4-based password hashes and passwords stored in LDAP, MySQL and others.


3. Nessus


Nessus is a comprehensive vulnerability scanning software. Its goal is to detect potential vulnerabilities on the tested systems such as:

-Vulnerabilities that allow a remote cracker to control or access sensitive data on a system.
-Misconfiguration (e.g. open mail relay, missing patches, etc).
-Default passwords, a few common passwords, and blank/absent passwords on some system accounts. Nessus can also call Hydra (an external tool) to launch a dictionary attack.
-Denials of service against the TCP/IP stack by using mangled packets

Nessus is the world's most popular vulnerability scanner, estimated to be used by over  ... Read more »

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, i have compiled a list of 10 high quality Linux video applications, covering a broad spectrum of uses.

One of the many perks of being a Linux user is that you have plenty of excellent software to choose from. This is especially true if you are in search for an essential application like a media player because there are definitely loads of options. However, this could sometimes be a disadvantage particularly to new-to-Linux users for the reason that they could get overwhelmed with the many choices they have.

Here i have compiled some of the best free media players for Linux OS to play almost any video, audio formats you will ever need as a Linux user.

Here is the list of my Top 10 Linux Media Players:


1. MPlayer

MPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems. It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5, WMV and even H.264 movies. Another great feature of MPlayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB, but you can use GGI, SDL (and this way all their drivers), VESA (on every VESA compatible card, even without X11!) and some low level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx and ATI), too! Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. MPlayer supports displaying through some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the Siemens DVB, DXR2 and DXR3/Hollywood+. MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls. European/ISO 8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Korean fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, SubRip, OGM, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and our own: MPsub).

Microsoft's new operating system makes computing more intuitive—and less of a chore—while offering better overall performance.

The first thing you'll notice about Windows 7 is that it looks like Vista. It also works like Vista, in the sense that it has the same plumbing underneath, except for a very welcome graphics upgrade to DX11. However, it works much better than Vista, and most of Vista's annoyances have either been removed, or (mostly) can be changed so the system works the way you like. It takes personalisation to extremes.

See why and how Windows 7 is better than Windows Vista orWindows XP. Here is a detailed features list which you can do or can not do in different versions of Windows. Windows 7 has got some improved and some other brand new featuresincluded in it.

 Play all of your favorite PS 1 games on your computer using ePSXe Emulator.

Remember Final Fantasy VIII? Remember Eden, Bahamuth, Shiva?? Or Suikoden II, Parasite Eve, Lunar, Rayman, Hercules, Xenogears?? Those were old, good times. Ever wish to play those games all over again or maybe finish them for the first time? You can install and run the necessary software to turn your PC into a virtual PlayStation. Today there are a lot of tutorials on the net about how to download and play PlayStation 1 games on your computer, but only few of the tutorials are really working and the others are not completely finished or aren't explained good and you can't understand them. Here i'll write a full tutorial to run PSX games on your computer. I will be posting links where to get emulator, ISOs and more!

Lets start:

1. Download ePSXe (PS1 emulator)

First of all you need to Download ePSXe. It's available for Linux andWindows. I recommend you to download version v.1.6.0 or lower (don't download any beta version).


2. Download plugins

Plugins will be necessary. You can download plugins for both OS, Windowsand Linux. There are three plugins you basically need to run the program.
Go to http://www.ngemu.com/psx/epsxe.php?action=plugins and then press Ctrl+F and download the following plugins:

Graphic Plugins:

P.E.Op.S. Soft GPU (v1.18b)
Pete's GPU Plugins (v1.77)

Sound Plugins:

Eternal SPU (v1.41)
P.E.Op.S. DSound (v1.9)

CD Plugins (To make Game Rips such as ISOs and CDs run on ePSXe):

CDR Mooby (v2.8)
P.E.Op.S. CDR (v1.4)

You can also download Misc Plugins which allows you to play over the net, but those aren't necessary.

Extract the files into the "plugins" folder in the ePSXe. (It's NOT in C://Program Files...! Remember the path when you download the ePSXe program in the first place? And you double click on it to run it? Go there and you will find the "plugins" folder)

3. Download BIOS

Now it's time to get the BIOS in order to play the games. You'll need a file called scph1001.dll. Here is a website where you can download your BIOShttp://dragonballarena.gamesurf.it/english/media/giochi/psx.php.


After the download is complete, place it on the "bios" folder in the ePSXe.

If you are on Facebook, these tricks may be useful.

Right now almost half of the world is on Facebook, no wonder it is the #2 ranked website in the world. I sometimes start my day off by doing a bunch of stuff on Facebook that I realize if I don’t share with my readers, how selfish of me! So today I decided to share some of the wonderful tricks and some tips of Facebook that I have discovered. If you have interesting tips/tricks related to Facebook, please feel free to share in the comment box below.

1. See all your friend’s pictures in a tiles format
Login into Facebook and in your facebook sidebar click on the my friends link you will see a drop down box next to show, now hover or rollover your mouse and then click on one of the dashed lines (–). You will see a page full of al the profile pictures of all your facebook friends. The profile photos will be shown in a tiled format. It really looks cool try it.


2. Appear Offline To Selected Friends

Appear Offline to those who are pestering you. Simply, open FB Chat and click Friend’s list, then Create a new list with whatever name you want and include all those people you don’t want to chat with in that list. Now you can appear offline to them by moving the green slider to offline whenever you come online.


3. Facebook Pirate Language

This is my favorite Facebook tip and if you are a fan of "Pirate Movies” it will become yours too. Instead of seeing "Share with friends” you can see "Blabber t’ yer mates” and other pirate words/phrases. Basically, to make Facebook communicate with you in old Pirate Language, Simple go to your Current Language Settings (located at the bottom of the page) and click the language as English (Pirate).


4. See creator’s profile

Creator in a facebook community is the first profile created in your community. Generally you can’t search for his profile. But by using this cool facebook trick you can do it, just follow some simple steps. Goto your profile page and look at your id in the url in the address bar of your web browser. The first few numbers represent your school ID, so if you change the rest of the numbers to zero and the last number to one. It will show you the first person or the first profile created from your school, college or work place. This profile is known as "Creator’s” profile. This trick is not much of use, but just in case.


5. Hide Your Online Status From Selected Friends:

So you want to use Facebook chat but don’t want some people to see your online status? Simply open up the Facebook Chat and click on Friends List. Start creating a new list called BlockList.

Once the list is created, add those friends to the list that you want to appear offline to. When the list is complete, hover your mouse to the little green icon adjacent to the list and click Go Offline. Bingo! You will now appear offline to everybody in the BlockList.


6. View a Friend’s Profile Without Messy Applications:

If you are like me, you often get annoyed by the dozens of silly applicationsthat people have added to their profile. Here’s a Grease Monkey script that allows you to view any profile without all those applications. Remember: the Mozilla Firefox web browser is a prerequisite for running Greasemonkey.


7. Display Your Facebook Status On Your Wordpress Blog:

Want to display your Facebook status updates on your Wordpress blog? There is a plugin that does exactly that. StatusPress lets you display your status updates to a widget on your Wordpress blog.


8. Give wooden look to facebook

This greasemonkey javascript will give your facebook pages an antiquated and wooden look. So, don’t just get stick to old boring design, keep trying out new ones.  ... Read more »

Very useful when you have to leave your system on for some time and you have to go some where else...

Right click on an empty area of the desktop and choose 'new' then 'shortcut.' The create shortcut wizard will open.



In the first text box, type '%windir%\\System32\\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation' and then give your shortcut an appropriate name on the next page, and hit 'finish.'





You will notice that the shortcut you created has a blank icon. To select a more appropriate one, right click on the shortcut and hit 'properties.' In the 'shortcut' tab, click the 'change icon' button.



Else u can simply press the \"window key + l\" to lock your computer.

Learn How to Get Back Your Hacked Facebook Account

Previously i've been posting how to hack Facebook account using Phishingor Keylogging. These two methods for hacking facebook are very effectively and easy to understand, you don't have to have any additional knowledge to implement them to hack facebook account. That's the reason why these days so many people are falling victims to the hackers, because today anyone with a bit knowledge of computers and programming can be a hacker. Еspecially if you are a newbie and don't know what you're doing, its very easy to get trapped by hackers. So here i will show you some things that can be done to get your Hacked FaceBook Account Back.


How to Get Back Hacked Facebook Account

1. First of all you can try resetting your account password on facebook. But this could help only in rare cases, because most hackers are intelligent and they surely will have changed the default email address. But if some body have accidentally (though the chances are extremely narrow) logged into your account and has changed only the password of your facebook account, this might help you in recovering your account password and gain access to your compromised account.

2. But things get much more worse when the hacker changes the emailaddress in your FaceBook Account. You’ll no longer be able to reset the account password and gain access to the account.

But there is a way.

FaceBook provides a contact page for you to help you to in recovering the hacked account .

Visit http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=account_compromised
Inside the contact Form You need to Fill in the Following Details Correctly.

Collection of Game Modding Tools, Tutorials and Resources

Everybody likes videogames, and the best ones have a fair share of creativegeniuses who want to develop their games or just want to mod their favorite one for a richer gaming experience. This time, I will be specifying some great tools that you can use for modifying your favorite video games.

Mod or modification is a term generally applied to PC games, especially first-person shooters, RPGs and real-time strategy games. Mods are made by the general public or a developer, and can be entirely new games in themselves, but mods are not standalone software and require the user to have the original release in order to run. They can include new items, weapons, characters, enemies, models, textures, levels, story lines, music, and game modes. They also usually take place in unique locations. They can be single-player or multiplayer. Mods that add new content to the underlying game are often called partial conversions, while mods that create an entirely new game are called total conversions and mods that fix bugs are called unofficial patches[Wikipedia]


1. Counter strike 1.6

One of the most played games on this planet, counter strike has a dedicated community for modding. You can modify just anything in this game, and various scripting tools are available for it.


Download Counter Strike 1.6 Tools


2. Halo


Microsoft’s shooting gem redefined action fps genre and tons of mods exists for it.


Download HALO Modding Tools


3. Prince of Persia Trilogy

Highly acclaimed Prince of Persia trilogy has been repacked and ripped by multiple cracking groups. Wonder how do they do so ? using unpacking tools to rip movie files and audio. You can use these tools for rather creative use..

Hacking a website or its member section
First of all,why you want to hack a webpage?Is it a certain webpage or any site at all? There are many reasons to hack a website, or a webmaster.Maybe you want to take a revenge or maybe you want to have fun or just learn how to do it ! You can deface the website which means replace the original index with a new one or you can gain access to the member area of the site which might be easier.
Defacing
You can deface the site through telnet or your browser by running remote commands on an old or misconfigured server, the hard thing to do is find an old server , maybe a network of a school or university would do,get a CGI BUG searcher.This program will scan ranges of IPs for web-servers and will scan them for known bugs in their cgis or other bugs and holes.You can learn how to exploite a certain hole by adding in yahoo the name of the bug/hole and the word exploit,search for "cmd.exe exploit”.There are more than 700 holes that many servers might have! You can also deface a website by finding the ftp password and just browse through the sites ftp and replace the index.htm.You do that with the :
Brute force
To do that you need a brute forcer or brute force attacker and some word lists,the brute forcer sends multiple user/pass requests of words that picks up from namelists and tries to hack the account untill it does! So lets say imagine a porn site that asks for a password , you go there you copy their address , you add the address in a program called brute forcer and then from the brute forcer you choose a text file with names to be used as usernamesand a text with names to be used as passwords,the brute forcer will try untill it finds a correct user/pass This should be easier for the newbies than exploiting cgi bugs , many of the newbies havent even heard of it i hope i didnt confuse you with this tutorial there might be more tuts about webhacking and cgi bugs and such.Till then try to find the way to cgi bugs yourself with the cgi scanners in the Web Hacks section or download a brute forcer to crack accounts.

With 2012 around the corner, we want to upgrade our antivirus software to the latest and greatest. The antivirus software below will prevent computer viruses from attacking and infecting your computer.

Avira Antivirus Premium

Avira provides not only protection but also performance with a tendency for over-protection due to the Advanced Heuristics Analysis Detection system. The price is reasonably low at $29.99 and it has an easy, straightforwardinstallation.

Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus 2012

Thus far, Trend Micro Titanium has made a great name for itself and we predict that it will sustain this reputation come 2012. This new line of security software uses cloud technology to bring real-time updates to your screen. Trend’s speed is definitely its greatest asset.

AVG Antivirus 2012

AVG is a great antivirus option, and its 2012 line has made improvements on its social network protection, in particular. The updates are automatic and continual, and it boasts some epic LinkScanner technology. However, the speed is slower than software like Trend.


Freebies:

AVG Antivirus Free 2012

With an impressive malware cleanup, this free software is a great option for those who need both cleanup and malware blocking. If you like this software, you can always move on up to the AVG Antivirus 2012 for $39.99.

Panda Antivirus 1.5 Free Edition

Panda, like Trend, uses cloud technology to make this software light on your PC. With speed and reliability, Panda has impressed many critics recently. While it doesn’t have "2012” in the title, the latest product runs with the best 2012 products. It has continually ranked the highest in malware removal, but sometimes has an incomplete cleanup. You can download the free edition of Panda Cloud Antivirus and give it a shot if you’re skeptical. The PandaAntivirus Pro 2012 goes for about $49.99/year

It's OK. This was your test. Your game. I was testing you. I took you in. I selected you for the honor of carrying on my life's work. But you didn't. You didn't test anyone's will to hack. Instead you took away their only chance. Your games were unwinnable, your subjects merely victims. In my desperation I decided to give you one last chance. So I put everything in place, and I let you make your own choices. I wanted you to succeed... You couldn't. Game over. (This is a modified quote from the SAW movie. I had to write this in my post, i just had to :)

Now lets go to the real post. Here I'll show you a hacking simulation gamecalled HackTheGame. In it you take on the role of a hacker that takes on various assignments. During these assignments you will be able to use a toolbox filled with (hacking) tools.

If you are already known to the hacking world then, welcome to the virtual simulation world of hacking environment.

If you really need some easy platform to practice hacking then I think this article will be a great help for you. Yes I am talking about the real hackinggame, Hack The Game.

HackTheGame is a free 1MB file game which will introduce you to the realhacking word.

The real hack able DOS environment makes you feel like that you have finally accessed to US Defense system.

The game becomes much more interesting and fun because of the addition of sounds. The sounds includes typing and several warning announcement.


The user interface of HackTheGame is very friendly and easy. Just open the program and select your language, input any ID you may like.

There are several missions of this game. You’ll get the briefing of each mission in your inbox.


The mail itself includes several hints and processes.


If you find sounds irritating then, you can go to settings menu and disable sounds. But I bet you, enabling sounds makes your game play experience very easy.


I bet you’ll love this game.

Network Stumbler a.k.a NetStumbler – This Windows based tool easily finds wireless signals being broadcast within range – A must have. It also has ability to determine Signal/Noise info that can be used for site surveys. I actually know of one highly known public wireless hotspot provider that uses this utility for their site surveys. 

(NetStumbler Screenshot)
Kismet – One of the key functional elements missing from NetStumbler is the ability to display Wireless Networks that are not broadcasting their SSID. As a potential wireless security expert, you should realize thatAccess Points are routinely broadcasting this info; it just isn’t being read/deciphered. Kismet will detect and display SSIDs that are not being broadcast which is very critical in finding wireless networks. 

(Kismet Screenshot)

Attaching to the Found Wireless Network

Once you’ve found a wireless networkthe next step is to try to connect to it. If the network isn’t using any type of authentication or encryptionsecurity, you can simply connect to the SSID. If the SSID isn’t being broadcast, you can create a profile with the name of the SSID that is not being broadcast. Of course you found the non-broadcast SSID with Kismet, right? If the wireless network is using authentication and/orencryption, you may need one of the following tools. 
Airsnort – This is a very easy to use tool that can be used to sniff and crack WEP keys.  While many people bash the use of WEP, it is certainly better than using nothing at all.  Something you’ll find in using this tool is that it takes a lot of sniffed packets to crack the WEP key. There are additional tools and strategies that can be used to force the generation of traffic on the wireless network to shorten the amount of time needed to crack the key, but this feature is not included in Airsnort. 

(Screenshot of Airsnort in Action)
CowPatty – This tool is used as a brute force tool for cracking WPA-PSK, considered the "New WEP” for home Wireless Security. This program simply tries a bunch of different options from a dictionary file to see if one ends up matching what is defined as the Pre-Shared Key. 

(Cowpatty Options Screenshot)
ASLeap – If a network is using LEAP, this tool can be used to gather the authentication data that is being passed across the network, and these sniffed credentials can be cracked.  LEAP doesn’t protect the authentication like other "real” EAP types, which is the main reason why LEAP can be broken. 

(Asleap Options  Screenshot)

Sniffing Wireless Data

1. Check Windows Update and Office Update regularly (http://office.microsoft.com/productupdates); Click on the Automatic Updates tab in the System control panel and choose the appropriate options.
2. Install a personal firewall. Both SyGate (www.sygate.com) and ZoneAlarm (www.zonelabs.com) offer free versions.
3. Install a free spyware blocker. I am choose SpyBot Search & Destroy (http://security.kolla.de). SpyBot is also paranoid and ruthless in hunting out tracking cookies.
4. Block pop-up spam messages by disabling the Windows Messenger service.
Open Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services and you'll see Messenger
Right-click and go to Properties, Set Start-up Type to Disabled and press the Stop button. Bye spam pop-ups!
5. Use strong passwords and change them periodically. Passwords should have at least seven characters; use letters and numbers and have at least one symbol.

6. If you're using Outlook or Outlook Express, use the current version or one with the Outlook Security Update installed. The update and current versions patch numerous vulnerabilities.
7. Buy antivirus software and keep it up to date. If you're not willing to pay, try AVG Free Edition
8. If you have a wireless network, turn on the security features: Use MAC filtering, turn off SSID broadcast, and even use WEP with the biggest key you can get.

What cloud computing really means

Cloud computing comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT’s existing capabilities.

Cloud computing is at an early stage, with a motley crew of providers large and small delivering a slew of cloud-based services, from full-blown applications to storage services to spam filtering. Yes, utility-style infrastructure providers are part of the mix, but so are SaaS (software as a service) providers such as Salesforce.com. Today, for the most part, IT must plug into cloud-based services individually, but cloud computing aggregators and integrators are already emerging.

InfoWorld talked to dozens of vendors, analysts, and IT customers to tease out the various components of cloud computing. Based on those discussions, here’s a rough breakdown of what cloud computing is all about:

1. SaaS
This type of cloud computing delivers a single application through the browser to thousands of customers using a multitenant architecture. On the customer side, it means no upfront investment in servers or software licensing; on the provider side, with just one app to maintain, costs are low compared to conventional hosting. Salesforce.com is by far the best-known example among enterprise applications, but SaaS is also common for HR apps and has even worked its way up the food chain to ERP, with players such as Workday. And who could have predicted the sudden rise of SaaS ”desktop” applications, such as Google Apps and Zoho Office?

2. Utility computing
The idea is not new, but this form of cloud computing is getting new life from Amazon.com, Sun, IBM, and others who now offer storage and virtual servers that IT can access on demand. Early enterprise adopters mainly use utility computing for supplemental, non-mission-critical needs, but one day, they may replace parts of the datacenter. Other providers offer solutions that help IT create virtual datacenters from commodity servers, such as 3Tera’s AppLogic and Cohesive Flexible Technologies’ Elastic Server on Demand. Liquid Computing’s LiquidQ offers similar capabilities, enabling IT to stitch together memory, I/O, storage, and computational capacity as a virtualized resource pool available over the network.

3. Web services in the cloud
Closely related to SaaS, Web service providers offer APIs that enable developers to exploit functionality over the Internet, rather than delivering full-blown applications. They range from providers offering discrete business services — such as Strike Iron and Xignite — to the full range of APIs offered by Google Maps, ADP payroll processing, the U.S. Postal Service, Bloomberg, and even conventional credit card processing services.

4. Platform as a service
Another SaaS variation, this form of cloud computing delivers development environments as a service. You build your own applications that run on the provider’s infrastructure and are delivered to your users via the Internet from the provider’s servers. Like Legos, these services are constrained by the vendor’s design and capabilities, so you don’t get complete freedom, but you do get predictability and pre-integration. Prime examples include Salesforce.com’s Force.com,Coghead and the new Google App Engine. For extremely lightweight development, cloud-basedmashup platforms abound, such as Yahoo Pipes or Dapper.net.

5. MSP (managed service providers)
One of the oldest forms of cloud computing, a managed service is basically an application exposed to IT rather than to end-users, such as a virus scanning service for e-mail or an application monitoring service (which Mercury, among others, provides). Managed security services delivered by SecureWorks, IBM, and Verizon fall into this category, as do such cloud-based anti-spam services as Postini, recently acquired by Google. Other offerings include desktop management services, such as those offered by CenterBeam or Everdream.

6. Service commerce platforms
A hybrid of SaaS and MSP, this cloud computing service offers a service hub that users interact with. They’re most common in trading environments, such as expense management systems that allow users to order travel or secretarial services from a common platform that then coordinates the service delivery and pricing within the specifications set by the user. Think of it as an automated service bureau. Well-known examples include Rearden Commerce and Ar ... Read more »

Yahoo! Messenger is an instant messaging program which is compatiblewith all Windows versions. While instant messaging is the focus of Yahoo!Messenger, there are several special tricks that can enhance the user experience. 

Here are my 10 Best Yahoo! Messenger Tricks and Hacks: 

1. Find invisible users on your Yahoo! Messenger list 

Want to find out someone who’s hiding from you? You can easily do so by going to Yahoo! Invisible Checker. All you need to do is type in the Yahoo! ID and the particular users status will be revealed. 

2. Invisible nickname on chat rooms 

Just go to edit profile and in the nick name type a (space character) on it just press Alt 0160 ( or ALT+255 ) and save it. 

Now go to any Yahoo! chat room and you’ll notice that your nick name is empty. [Alt+0160 is a keyboard shortcut for space] 

3. Run Multiple Instances of Yahoo! Messenger on same system 

Some of you might be having more than one Yahoo! ID would like to log in simultaneously. Here is an easy way to do it without installing any sort ofsoftware. You just have to edit the registry and voila there you go. Follow the instructions below: 

  • Download the following -multiyahoo.reg and save it to your hard disk.
  • Double click on it.


  • The above dialog will popup, click ‘Yes
  • Start the yahoo messenger login with your first ID. Then again start another yahoo messenger by clicking on the messengericon and log in with your second ID.This tweak works with all versions of Yahoo Messengers.


4. Removing Ads from your Yahoo! Messenger 

If you are using Yahoo! Messenger 8.0, then you can disable ads by following the below steps: 
  • First close the Yahoo! Messenger.
  • Save this .bat file and execute it. (Note: You won’t be able to enter the chat rooms if you use this patch.)

The above fix doesn’t work for Yahoo! Messenger 9 Beta. Here’s a way to disable the ads in Yahoo! Messenger 9: 
  • Make sure the Yahoo! Messenger isn’t running, if it is then just close it.
  • Now backup the following file C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Yahoo!Messenger.exe (create a new copy)
  • Download HxD hex editor.
  • Open C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Yahoo!Messenger.exe in the hex editor
  • Now go to the offset 295928 (in HxD: Search/ ... Read more »

Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to secretly access a computer system without the owner's informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software or program code.The term "computer virus" is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware, including true viruses. [Wikipedia]

With the increase in malware "programmers", numerous malwares/spywares are releasing everyday.

Here are some ways to stay safe from most malwares in Windows:

1. OS Installation Directory

Most of them are skids, so they hard-code location names in their apps, instead of getting the System Directory. As you know the default installation of Windows XP, Vista, 7 is C:\Windows. When you are installing an OS, you are asked for the installation location, even Directory name. Just change C:\Windows to something like E:\OSdir, etc. and you should be immune from skid malwares.

Note: Some softwares may stop working this way, since it can be possible that they are using the same idea. Just find an alternative for them.

2. Show Hidden Folders, and System Files

It is really easy to make any file System/Hidden in most programming languages, so most malwares hide their stub using these attributes. It becomes real easy to find them after you unhide them.

3. Use BinText on suspicious apps

You have found a suspiciously hidden App? Open it in BinText, it will display all Text in the app. Most programmers don't hide Text, although it can be done by obfuscating. But there is still a very good chance you can find suspicious information in an app. If you find text like " ... Read more »

Yesterday, I requested my friend to send me the snapshot of the PSD file of the Wordpress design. But he claimed that his Photoshop CS2 has expired. He thought of going to his friend and copying the snapshot and again sending back to me. Photoshop Document itself was large size, therefore I asked for the snapshot. If I was going to accept his idea, then I would have to wait whole day for just a snapshot.

Rather I suggested him certain idea to view PSD files without the need ofPhotoshop. And that is what I want to share with my visitors as well.

With IrfanView, a 1.3 MB image viewing freeware utility, you can open almost all the images without need of any high level software. Here is a list of image files that I can open.


IrfanView is a freeware utility, licensed under End User License Agreement (EULA).

It is not only a viewer; rather you can edit the pictures there. Basically it supports cropping, cut, paste, copy, drawing tools, eraser tools etc. IrfanView is plug-in enabled, that means they have plug-in to make it more accessible and useful.

Previously i've posted a tutorial about how to create a fake facebook virus. This virus prank is similar to that one, but instead of notepad i will use a "New Shortcut" option and command prompt to create it. This "virus” can shutdown, restart and log off your pc (Can also write a message and specify the countdown time). This is actually a faster way to turn off your pc, ’cause it doesn’t require clicking Start>Turn off....
And 
absolutely the best thing about this virus is that you can make a fun prank to your friend... :P

Now lets start with the tutorial.

1) Create a shortcut (Right click on your desktop and go to new -> shortcut )

2) After this will appear window and that is where you type the code

shutdown -s -t 300 -c "Your Message"

To log of computer type shutdown -l -t 300 -c "your message” 
To restart computer type shutdown -r -t 300 -c ” your message” 

The number after -t is the number of seconds countdown there will be beforeshutdown . After -c write own message , that will come up when shutdownbox pops up.


3) Click Next, Finish



4) After this will appear icon on desktop, when someone click it, shutdownbox will pops up.

Also you can change the look of your icon (Right click on the icon -> Properties -> Shortcut -> Change Icon and replace it with you
r own one, likeInternet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox...)



5 ) You can stop system shutdown by going to Start->Run , then open cmd, write shutdown -a and press ENTER on keyboard, as shown below

That's all. I think this is one of the simplest way to create a fake virus, but still to make a fun of your friend.

Let’s say you are chatting on msn, and someone you don't know is starting a conversation with you. If you want to know from where is the person you are chatting with, or check if she/he is telling the truth, you can trace the location (country, city, etc. ), and IP Address of the person. There are several methods of doing it but here’s an easy one. The only thing you have to do is to actually make the person click a link you send him. When that person clicks the link, you will receive information like IP Address, Country, Host name, Operating System /Browser Details and region name. Just follow instructions below:

1. Visit this link and enter your email id in it. You will receive your trace reports in it.

2. You will receive a unique link in your inbox like this http://acmepeers.com/?u=vyg (Mostly its in Spam Folder)

3. When someone clicks that link you will receive tracing reports to your email .

You can click the above link yourself to check the accuracy of the system by tracing yourself.

It looks like this:

Shorten the time it takes for your desktop to appear when you turn on your PC and make XP shut down faster as well.

In some cases computers running with Windows XP takes too much time to shutdown and repeatedly annoy users with pop up messages asking if you really want to quit the applications. This problem is mainly due to applications that installservices that start at Windows XP boot time and then take a very long time to stop and sometimes time out whenWindows is being shut down. No matter how fast your PC shuts down, it's not fast enough. This tweak reduces the time Windows-XP waits before automatically closing any running programs when you give it thecommand to shutdown.

How to Improve Your Computers Shutdown And Reboot Speed?

For speeding up your shutdown and reboot time in Windows XP, you need to edit some registry settings. Follow the steps as given below:

1. Go to Start then select Run

2. Type 'Regedit' and click ok


3. Find 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\'

4. Select 'WaitToKillAppTimeout'

5. Right click and select 'Modify'


6. Change the value to '1000'

7. Click 'OK'


8. Now select 'HungAppTimeout'

9. Right click and select 'Modify'

I'll make it short. I found this out on myself just by peeping around and Googling a bit.

1. Open Firefox.

2. Clear your cache.

Open Firefox and select "Tools" -> "Options", select the Advanced panel, and click on the Network tab. In the Offline Storage section, click Clear Now.


Click OK to close the Options window

3. Load the web page that contains your flash video. Make sure it streams all the way. This means you now have it in your computer's cache.

4. Open a new tab and write "about:cache" in the address bar (without the "quotes").


5. Under "Disk cache device", copy the path shown for the cache directory.


6. Paste that path in My Computer, or navigate to it however you want.

7. Order files by size.

8. The biggest file should be your video. It's going to have a weird name like 54DDEA30e01 but that's fine. This is your video.

9. Open the file with a media player that supports the format, such as VLC Player.

NOTE: Most likely, your computer won't know which software to run this file type with, so just select "open file with" option after clicking the file with the secondary mouse button, and choose VLC Player.

this tweak removes the context menu that would normally appear whenthe user right clicks on the desktop or in the Explorer right results.

Previously I posted a tutorial How to disable "Turn off Computer" button on start menu. In this post i want to show you how to disable the right click functionality on desktop and explorer by using a simple registry hack. The bad thing is that people can still drag files and folders and drop them everywhere but it does provide some level of protection.

Lets start:

To use this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer withadministrative rights.

1. Go to Start > Run > type REGEDIT and hit enter. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer


2. Here in right side panel, right click to create a new DWORD value with the name NoViewContextMenu (it is case sensitive), then assign number 1 in value data box.


Adding the registry tweak above will disable mouse right click for ALL users. If you only want to disable for the current logged in user, you should add the registry tweak to HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Basically this technique is called SAFE-TEXT. It's a technique where a message destroys itself after being read. If you want to call it the Data-centric Suicide Message, that's fine too. This is a website that allows you to send such type of sms for free of cost after registering on it. But it has limitation that you can send only 10 SMS a day.

So here's the thing. With Wikileaks on one side and British libel law on the other, there's room for a tool that lets you say what needs to be said, but without it falling into the wrong hands in the process.

What it does is allow you to send an expletive-laden opinion of your boss to a co-worker, or an it's-in-the-public's-interest-to-know-this leak to your friend on the Guardian (or Wired), without it having a chance to be read by said boss, or unsaid MP.

Note: This trick should only work for British mobile network operators.

Here’s how to use it:
  1. To register and activate, text WIRED to 83118 (charged at your standard network rate). You’ll be able to send up to 10 messages daily.
  2. If you’re the sender, the message will show your name and number.
  3. Write your libel-ridden hate speech and hit send.
  4. The receiver will then be sent a text telling them they have been sent a Wired Safe Text with a link to the mobile internet site that hosts your message.
  5. When they click through they will activate Safe Text. They will only have a few seconds to read the text (so don’t make it too long) before it self-destructs.

Now all of you know that Photoshop is the heavyweight champ in the image-editing category, but most people don’t need such an advanced toolset for everyday image-editing tasks, and its price is near $650. In this post i'll show you some of the best free image editors that are so easy to use.

1. IrfanView - IrfanView is probably the most popular and feature packed free image viewer for Windows that can view, edit, and convert image files and play video/audio formats. It has been around for many years and keeps getting better. In addition to standard image viewing, it includes many additional features including slideshow, batch conversion, image adjustment, image editing, resizing, panorama stitching, auto EXIF rotation and more. There certainly are more user-friendly and attractive image viewers, but few that offer all the functionality, and extendibility that IrfanView can provide.

2. Paint.NET - Paint.NET features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins. Many special effects are included for enhancing and perfecting your images. Everything from blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise, and embossing are included. Also included is our unique 3D Rotate/Zoom effect that makes it very easy to add perspective and tilting. I am using this software and it's really great.

3. FastStone Image Viewer - FastStone Image Viewer is a fast, stable, user-friendly image browser, converter and editor. It has a nice array of features that include image viewing, management, comparison, red-eye removal, emailing, resizing, cropping, color adjustments, watermarks and more. FastStone Image Viewer supports all major graphic formats including BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, GIF, PNG, PCX, TIFF, WMF, ICO and TGA as well as digital RAW formats including CRW, CR2, NEF, PEF, RAF, MRW, ORF and DNG).

4. GIMP - GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is specifically a raster graphics editor used to process digital graphics and photographs. It is usually the direct free replacement for Photoshop and rightly so, there are very few limitations, its very powerful, and is probably easier to use than Photoshop. With its dedicated community you can find all the help, tutorials and plugins you would ever need. All this for free!
OS : Windows ALL, Mac OS X, and SkyOS.

5. Photoscape - PhotoScape is a complete photo editing suite that includes image browsing/viewing, photo editing, picture page printing, photo resizing and renaming, and even RAW conversion. It is a very complete package that will meet most of your digital image editing needs.

There exists many tools for recovering these passswords from their stored places. Using these tools and an USB pendrive you can create your own rootkit to hack passwords from your friend's/college Computer. We need the following tools to create our rootkit.

MessenPass: Recovers the passwords of most popular Instant Messenger programs: MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ Lite 4.x/2003, AOL Instant Messenger provided with Netscape 7, Trillian, Miranda, and GAIM.

if you are looking to increase your internet speed without any expensive software then you came to right place. I will tell you how to increase yourinternet speed up to 50%-60 % with few clicks. I have applied this trick to my GPRS dial-up connection and my internet connection speed increased to almost double.
Here I will show you how to get fastest speed to load your websites by the using of Google public DNS. Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system that translates a computer’s fully qualified domain name into an IP address. For example, when you type pc-tips-hacks.blogspot.com in web browser then DNS translate pc-tips-hacks.blogspot.com to computer readable number known as IP address and when computer knows about the IP location of web domain name it simply opens website in the browser.


Our ISP (Internet Service Provider) provide their DNS which are located at router. Sometimes DNS server of ISP is very slow then it takes so much time to find out the web address and open the website. To solve this problem you can replace your ISP’s DNS service with Google Public DNS by changing the settings of the network connection.

1) Go to Start -> Control Panel


2) Click on Network Connections in Control Panel


3) Right click on Local Area Connection and then click on Properties


4) Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click on properties


5) Select Use the following DNS server addresses in filed Preferred DNS server type 8.8.8.8 and in Alternate DNS server type 8.8.4.4

Today there are many people out there who still prefer to use pirated software. It's especially common among users who live outside the U.S. When you download your program or game you might need the serial to remove the trial period. Blindly searching the web for cracks and keygens is about as smart as using Limewire to search for antivirus software – something not well-advised. Undoubtedly and unfortunately, the number of crack sites with overtones of a malicious agenda heavily outweigh sites that just want to serve up the honest goods. Having said that, there actually are quite a few creditable 'crack' sites that won't try to bombard you with full-screen popup ads, or commandeer your computer into a spam-lovingKraken or Srizbi Botnet army. Here i want to present you a list of "clean" crack sites for all the latest warez to unlock your software.

Please note that the site reviews herein only include information about each site, not the contents of the 'cracks' themselves. Always use a reputable antivirus andantispyware program on cracks & keygens before using them.

Here is my list of Safe and Malicious Crack/KeyGen Sites:

www.keygen.in

www.smartserials.com

www.keygenguru.com - Popular site with hundreds of thousands of results.

www.serialkey.net

www.zcrack.com

www.subserials.net

www.serialportal.com

supercracks.net

www.serialcrackz.com

www.serials.be

www.cracktop.com

www.cracksfm.com

www.cracklib.net

www.crackdb.org - The site itself is safe, however; many affiliate links are on the 'do-not-visit' list. When searching, skip past the first results (with the prices).

1. Bypass the Recycle Bin
The Windows Recycle Bin is a good safeguard against accidental file deletions. However, when you know you want to permanently delete a file, you can bypass it. Instead of pressing the Del key, press Shift+Del, thenShift+Enter to confirm.
If you prefer, you can also permanently disable the Recycle Bin. First, right-click on the Recycle Bin, then choose Properties. Click on the drive you want to disable the Recycle Bin for, then select "Don't move files to the RecycleBin. Remove files immediately when deleted." Click the OK or Apply button to save the changes.

2. Open Windows Explorer faster
Are you still mousing over to a Windows Explorer icon or double-clicking on My Computer to browse your files? Try pressing Windows Logo+E instead, to instantly launch Windows Explorer.
3. Enable underlining of keyboard shortcuts
Windows has many menu shortcut keys, but they're hidden by default. To enable the underlining of the shortcuts, go to Control Panel > Ease of AccessCenter > Change how your keyboard works. Click on the box next to "Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys," then hit the OK or Apply button to save.

6. Show hidden files, folders, and drives
To view files, folders, and drives that Windows hides, open the Windowssearch box (Windows Logo) and type folder. Next, select Folder Options from the search list and navigate to the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, check the box next to "Show hidden files, folders, and drives."
