Tip

Security Tool Removal


Remove this virus from Vista by doing the following.
1.Make sure to show hidden files and folders

Go to the Control Panel
When the control panel opens you can either be in Classic View or Control Panel Home view:
If you are in the Classic View do the following:
Double-click on the Folder Options icon.
Click on the View tab.
Under the Hidden files and folders section select the button labeled Show hidden files and folders
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide extensions for known file types.
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
If you are in the Control Panel Home view do the following:
Click on the Appearance and Personalization link.
Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders and remove the checkmark from hide extensions for known fil types and also remove the checkmark from hide operating system files.
2.
Now we find the folder that the tool is in -
In XP Open My computer - open your C:\ drive - look at users\allusers\application data look - and look for a folder named with 8 numbers -- eg..25467834 or similar.... open this folder and you should see the security tool in there...
Vista the best way is to find the shortcut for the security tool first.... Go to Computer -then C:\users\your user name\desktop\ and look for security tool shortcut.... right click and look at the properties - the end will give u the path of the virus...click Open file location and continue as below...
3.
Right click on the security tool and rename it to anything ,,, doesnt matter...reboot the PC now...because we have renamed it - the security tool wont run on the reboot... now you gotta go back to where u renamed the tool and delete it..all done ? good.... delete the shortcut on the desktop also.
4.
Download a great spyware removal tool called Malwarebytes (free) update and run it. delete what it finds... other tools i would run - your antivirus program whatever it may be and another great tool called Hitmanpro - great for rootkits....
5.
This should clean up your PC - wouldnt hurt to download a prog called CCLEANER and run that...the PC should be functioning by now..if you still feel something is lurking a final piece of software to download would be kaspersky rescue disk....it allows the hard drive to be scanned before booting - make sure u are connected to the web via a ethernet cable. If your new to this Security tool - the first steps will remove it for you - the rest is just some useful software that i use daily and may help people out.
Need more - let me know.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

All folders open with realplayer


if you want a different player , just select a file and while pressing the Shift button press right click mouse button and go to open with and choose default .. select a preferred software and make sure the check the " always use the selected program " and then all files will be open afterwards with the selected software . but be noted it will only open from that selected file format . for example it can be avi so all files with the same format will open with the software you selected so you have to repeat this process just 3 to four times since there are so many vids with different formats

How to install programs on samsung corby pro.. any ideas!!


you can do it in two ways, open inside you ephone browser and open www.getjar.com or open google ,search opera mini browser , install the opera mini directly on the cell. Then open oera mini, it will be inside the game folder. When opera opens itself, you can directly click on mobile applications tab inside the browser, it will automatically show you thousands of free applications specifically for your cell. Install them by clicking and enjoy.
Second method:
1. Create a new text document(on desktop right click > new > text document)
2. In that paste this.
<html><body><a href="_______">install _______</a></body></html>

#Write ur application/software/game name in the space provided.
for example <html><body><a href="operamini.jar">install operamini.jar</a></body></html>
#Here operamini.jar is name of the application/software/game that is going to get installed.
#Remember that the name of the application/software/games should be same with that u write here.
#If your .JAR file name is operamini.jar then in the space provided you should type operamini.jar
3. Now rename that file to abc.html and copy both the files (''abc.html'' and the file you want to install) to a folder via Cable to the phone.
4. open abc.html in ur phone and the file you want to install is installed
#I THINK THIS IS THE SIMPLEST WAY TO INSTALL ANY application/software/game

cheers!

I cannot open dbx files


Hi,
If you cannot open the .dbx file, you need to have Outlook Express installed on your computer. Usually outlook Express is the default email client for Windows XP. http://www.dbxconverter.com/ you can try to use this link to get teh converter of .dbx files to .pst files that you can use and read using Microsoft Outlook (Third Party) or Windows Mail (default for Vista) Windows Live Mail(Windows 7).
Cheers!!

How do you burn a cd on this notebook?




  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.
But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

How will i restore my webcam icon though the driver is already installed on my laptop?


Method 1 : Re-installing the Webcam software will make the Icon restore.

Method 2 : As you have already installed the driver, you need to browse for the icon to the "Program files" folder which is under the driver ( usually c:\program files) and go to the webcam software folder.

For example, if i installed cyberlink webcam there will be a folder by the name "Cyberlink" under the program files.

Open the folder and you will find the icon.
Right Click the icon and select "Send to" and the select "Desktop (create shortcut).

That's it.
