Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)
First I will say that the programs here are completely free of charge
I want to give you a tip how to surf more secure in a official (computer who is shared with many people) computer.
Why I choose to write about this / How to do it:
Many times it happens that computers shared with many persons get dangerous because they can be used to thing normally you do not will use them at your own computer. Because of that you need a FRESH/private browser just for you and you can do it in this way and i recommend these following browsers for that.
REMEMBER THE BROWSER/S DO NOT INSTALL ON THE COMPUTER BUT ONLY ON A FOLDER OF YOUR CHOOSE AND YOU CAN KEEP IT ON A USB STORAGE OR SIMPLY DELETE THE FOLDER AFTER YOU HAVE USED IT.
Remember!! to delete the content of the "Bin" on the computer after you have deleted the folder with the browser/ if you choose to delete the BROWSER, otherwise the next person is able to Restore the Browser with all the surfed history and cookies/login stored passwords etc.If you do not KNOW how to delete the contents of the "Bin" you can download and use Ccleaner portable HERE (It is also a program that install only in a folder) .
HOW TO Run Ccleaner, you can read about it here:
I have choosen these 3 Portabel Browsers (you can have them on a USB storage or simply copy the files tho a Folder of your choise. Note!! remember the location of the folder, otherwise you can not delete it after), but you can find many more on the internet of portable browsers !
1. Firefox portable:
2. Avant portable :
http://www.avantbrowser.com/download.html (Choose : Download Avant Browser USB Disk Version)
3. Orca portable:
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Portable-Orca-Browser-Download-133538.html (- Choose -: Softpedia Secure Download (US) [EXE] - Or - Softpedia Secure Download (RO) [EXE] )
Simply download the file in a Folder of your choose ex the folder "Documents" (Remember the location (where it is downloaded, you need to go to the Folder of your choose again for start extracting the files of the Browser!!)).
Then find the file in the downloaded Folder of your choise and and double click on that and follow the Wizard on the screen.
The Wizard will ask you about which --Folder-- you will like to copy the files of the browser.
Simply click on the Folder/Browse icon on the Wizard and choose a --Folder-- you do remember again where the location is on the computer, you need to go there after to start the Browser (choose ex "C:" (My Computer- and then drive C:) --- or the Folder "Documents" (more recommended )).
Follow then the instructions / Wizard to complete the transfer/copy of the files.
When the wizard is finish, go to the Folder where you have extracted the files during the wizard and there you should find : If you have downloaded
For 1. Firefox portable: you should find the file "FirefoxPortable" and double click on that for starting the Browser.
For 2. Avant portable: you should find the file "avant" for starting the browser
For 3 Orca portable: you should find the file "orca" for starting the browser
So Easy is that !!! NOTHING ELSE.
Just start surfing or go to your e-mail account and log in secure with a New/ private Browser :O).
NOTE ! in case that one Browser is not running as you would like to I recommend to use one of 3 the others Browsers above or Google (http://www.google.com) and type "portable browsers" without the "",
I did Google it for you here with Google for my Country : Press here or Press here (automatic Google search on google.com)
For these persons that have the browser on a USB storage I recommend to personalize it with Skins and extra add-ons of your choose, you normally find those in the first site or choosing the Help option in the Browser
I the end, I must say " I Use these every day and I am very glad for these"
Have a nice time over there
