I want to unblock my badoo and facebook site om my pc


Step 1:
Block and unblock internet sites using your macintosh computer. It is easy to set up, and easy to change. Follow these steps to determine what type of blocking you want to use, how to set it up, and how to unblock sites in the future.

DECIDE WHAT YOUR GOAL REALLY IS IN BLOCKING SITES. Be clear about this up front so you can find the best solution. Is this blocking for you? Is it for your kids? Is it to keep employees off of certain sites? Answer these questions first before stabbing in the blocking-sites-darkness. To block certain types of sites for all users on a computer or system - use OpenDNS.com, see step 2.

To block specific sites one at a time use the terminal command in Step 3.
To log (rather than block) specific sites use covenanteyes.com see Step 4.
To only ALLOW certain sites use the parental controls option, see Step 5. USE FREE OPEN DNS TO BLOCK CERTAIN TYPES OF SITES FOR ALL USERS. This is a great option for small businesses or households with agreed upon and uniform standards for internet usage. See the link Below. http://opendns.com/ Go to the site (see resource link near the bottom of this page). Click on the 'start using open dns' button. Choose whether you want the blocking to occur at the computer level, the router level, or the server level. Follow the step by step instructions. They have pictures... it really is simple. Best of all, it is FREE! b> TO BLOCK SPECIFIC SITES USE THE TERMINAL COMMAND IN MACOSX TO BLOCK THEM ONE AT A TIME. Few people really want to block only one or two sites. This is a wieldy way to provide internet security. But if that is your specific need this is for you. Another ehow article gives the detailed instructions (it's a bit technical) for this process. So it is linked both in the related articles to the right titled 'How to block access to websites in MacOS X' and in the resource link section at the bottom. TO LOG EVERYTHING YOUR COMPUTERS VIEW, USE COVENANT EYES. This program will log and score every site that is viewed by a computer on which it is installed. It will not allow the internet to run if it is disabled and will send you an alert if it is uninstalled. You set the preferences as to how often to receive reports. Go to covenanteyes.com and click the 'sign up now' button. It will guide you through the process. For around $8 a month this is a relatively cheap option that covers up to three computers. TO ONLY ALLOW CERTAIN SITES USE PARENTAL CONTROLS. If you are using the Leopard system then you can use the 'Parental Controls' feature found in System Preferences. Click on accounts. Check the box for parental controls. You can click on the content tab and then tick limit access to adult sites. You can also use button to add specific criteria to your block. Alternatively, simply add the specific sites you want allowed to the bookmark bar and type in your administrator's password. Then only those sites can be viewed. TO UNBLOCK SITES ON A MAC. To remove parental controls simply return to the systems preference, accounts, then parental controls section. Un-click the parental control box. Un-click any content specific controls. To remove open dns.com simply drag the program folder from applications into the trash. Isn't Mac great?

If you worked at the router or server level you will have to undo those steps and reconfigure your system to allow direct access to the internet. To uninstall covenant eyes you need the password to get an uninstall code. It cannot happen late at night.

I have to run my pc in save mode to get on line


Then you have a virus or spyware blocking you from getting online in normal mode. Open the computer in normal mode and go to System Restore and restore it back to a time when this was not happening. If that does not work then open in normal mode, go to system restore and turn it off. This will clean out all restore points which may be hiding the culprit. Now restart the computer in Safe Mode and run all your security software scans and remove all they find.

I misplaced my manual and need a new one


Generic computers don't normally have manuals. The main data of use is the mainboard, so a manual for that is your best bet. Any other parts are usually self explanatory. To identify the mainboard it is easiest to open the case and read what's written on it. Then do a web search.
If the computer is a name brand (HP ASUS Dell etc) go to their web site first.

Open DNS is troubles me when important downloading it is block that sites pl.give me solution to delete or remove the Open DNS


No.1 : If you are on corporate/company LAN, there's nothing much you can do unless you are the system/network administrator. If you are then make the necessary changes in the software at the server level( where open dns and proxy is hosted for access). But beware of your corporate security policies.

No.2 If you are at home or if you have your own internet connection, uninstall or disable open dns and point your system/laptop direcltly to the DNS servers provided by your ISP

I can't load some web pages when I connect wireless with the Sabrent NT-WRLRT Wireless broadband router


There could be several reasons for this. Make sure your DNS settings are correct, you can test this by using another computer..
replace <URL> with the address you are having problems with. i.e. google.com if you can't pul up google on your wireless machine, and replace <IP> with the resulting IP address

on your working computer:
1) go to start > run > type " cmd " in the box and hit enter
2) in the new window that opened, type ping <URL>
3) when the pings are successful, write down the IP address (you will see " pinging <URL> [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] <--- This is IP address)

now go to your malfunctioning machine and repeat the process, if the IP addresses are different, you will need to change your DNS settings. If they are the same, and you still cannot pull up the site, the site itself may have problems, or you may have inadvertinly blocked the site within your browser from being displayed, this can usually be undone by checking the security features withing your browser's security settings

Second computer on router


Check to make sure the DNS settings on the second computer match that of the first one or that the DNS settings are being set up by DHCP. Also, open a dos prompt (start, run, CMD enter) and in that prompt type PING 192.168.1.1 or the ip of your router... compare the results on each pc and if the second one indeed gets a slower ping time I would first try a new cable, followed by a different port on the switch/router and if that still does not solve the issue, try a new ethernet card in the second pc
