Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

P2P and You?

P2P means Peer to Peer that act of sharing files with another person or group. With Peer to Peer you can find lots of files, driver files etc. When using Peer to Peer programs you can go to various Web sites to get these shared files.


Peer to Peer has become forums which carries lots of illegal software and downloads that are sold in today's market place. A movie, Music, Windows Software along with other software which must be purchased and serial number applied is being stripped from these Peer to Peer sites. This is what is called illegal copywriter infringements, not only will possibly get a person jailed or fined you can lose your Internet ISP.


The world is an open source for file sharing such programs which offer illegal material which can be download or shared from Peer to Peer programs is slowly becoming the thing of the past. You will notice many warning messages which will eventually close most of the P2P programs down in the future. It is sad that again we are going to be controlled by the government with new rules and policies which will stop the illegal files from being shared.


I tell you this information to let the public know when reading this web information, to be careful and just download files that are freeware only from these sites like driver files and free software. If you use P2P software be sure to have anti-virus running at all times. These sites are loaded with virus files and will infect your computer.

how can i make my computer run faster


do you use P2P (Peer to Peer) file sharing programs? If so then try turning the file sharing program off, as file sharing programs use up alot of bandwidth some broadband providers limit the speed you can use the internet if you are using file sharing programs.
If you turn off the file sharing program your broadband speed goes back to normal .
I faced the same problem ,after doing this i checked my speed from ScanMySpeed.com apparently my internet speed is faster than before.
If these doesn't apply ,there is a chance you may have a virus on your computer. A computer virus is likely to not just slow your broadband and Internet down but your computer too.

wht does peer to peer mean


A peer is like a workstation which contributes it's resource (hard disk space,speed,Bandwidth etc.) without the need of central coordination (servers).They are both suppliers and consumers of the resources.

In simple words if you have noticed P2P clients like uTorrents,Bittorrents and many other and you want to download a file...you first download the torrent file--run it--and you start downloading it in 'parts'(consumer) from different people who already have downloaded the files and also you will see that you are using some of your bandwidth in uploading too (supplier) which means other people are also downloading from your workstation.You can even stop someone from downloading the file from your end.
This is what peer-to-peer is all about.

How can I download music?


That would depend on what type of MP3 player you have. Some you connect to your computer thru a USB cable, the PC recognizes it and you then drag your songs in mP3,aac, WAV or whatever format is needed for that perticular player to that device. If it's an Ipod or Zune etc... you need their software. Such as Itunes for an Ipod and so on
