If you have a firewall and anti-virus, there's no reason not to show your IP address. Unless you use a proxy, if you're on the internet, your IP address can be seen. Any website you go to can see your IP address. But as I said, with firewall and anti-virus, nothing at all can be done.

To hide your IP address, you can use a proxy. If you use firefox, take a look at this link.

Using proxies hides your real IP address. <--- This is another very helpful link.

Inside Info on Installation, Activation, Registration and Tech Support

Lately, I’ve seen countless help requests from people asking for software activation codes, Access Key, etc. At least, I’m fairly certain that’s what they’re asking for. Some posts will simply make a statement, and then end. Nothing more.

Not only are these requests in areas that are intended to help people solve problems, but they may be illegal. It would seem to me that if you publicly request information that can only be used for committing a crime, then chances are if you get that information, you will, indeed, commit the crime. N’est pas?

So I wondered if these requestors know anything about what they’re asking and that posting a request of that nature may be in breech of the "Terms of Use" agreement. If you don't know what any of this means, then it’s your lucky day.

There are two distinct methods for obtaining new software. They are:

1. By downloading the entire kit and caboodle from a web site
2. From a sealed package containing installation discs and printed materials

With Method 1, you may download one or more compressed files and place them in a single folder on your hard drive. From there, you'll decompress the file(s) and begin the installation. You end up with the same items as with Method 2.

With Method 2, everything you need is in a box (or not) and there is no need to copy all of its contents to your hard drive. You install the software from the disc(s), and then store the disc(s) in a safe place. Occasionally, you’ll still need to download the user manuals from the web.

Regardless of how you “procured” the software, at some point you will be asked for a “secret code” to prove that you own your version of the software. You may need to use the code when you begin to install the software, or you might not need it until you have completed the installation and you launch the application for the first time. I don't know how many times I've personally installed software then put all the documentation and discs away for safekeeping only to have to dig them up a few minutes later for the initial start up.

If a code is required, it may be referenced to as the “Activation key,” or “installation code,” or “access key,” or the “Golden Ticket,” whatever. This little nugget will be somewhere, either on a card inside the box, or printed on the outside packaging and you will need it in order to complete the installation. The code may be alpha-numerical, it may be the product's actual Serial Number that you need, or a "special" access code generated specifically for each downloaded installation, or printed near the UPC somewhere on the package -- usually underneath.

For online purchases, the code may be emailed to you, or displayed to you with your payment confirmation page which you should save immediately. Write it somewhere, email it to yourself, tattoo it on your forehead if you need, but do not loose it. You bought it, it is yours, and only yours. No one will ever have one just like it and, saving the best part for last, it may NOT WORK WITH ANOTHER COPY/DOWNLOAD. What does this mean for you…?

This means if you download an installation file named “installThis.exe,” and you are given the access code of “007,” then the code “007” and the file “installThis.exe” must be used in conjunction with each other. If you accidentally delete the installation file, or if it has problems, and you download another copy of “installThis.exe” chances are good that code “007” is no longer valid and you will be given another access code (ex: “008”) to go with the second download. Naturally, the exact scenario is determined by how the software manufacturer wants to manage online purchases. Nevertheless, without this code, you might not be able to install the software or run it. This is why it is important to save and protect the installation file you download, make a backup copy of it, and put them both away some place safe along with its access code. A good practice would be to store your backup copy at a friend’s home, in a sealed container, or in a bank’s safety deposit box.

At some point during or after the software acquisition-installation, comes Registration. You may be prompted to register your copy at the time of installation. Or, you may be prompted to register your copy when you run the application for the first time. Regardless of when, you should always register your copy. This secures your ownership of that copy with a reference to the machine on which it's running. Keep in mind that there are endless possibilities of how the Installation-Activation-Registration process can flow and how your copy is properly registered to you.

In some applications, when you install and register your software, the number you use (authorization key/code, access key/code, or serial number) can not be used again unless you uninstall the software from the machine on which it is running. This is especially true if you have purchased a license for a limited time use of an application (1 year of use for example). How all this actually takes place is up to the discretion of the developer and how they choose to track their products and customers.
You should always register your software during the initial run. You may forget to do so later, and the software may not remind you. Also, there may be an important fix or update that has been developed and didn't make it into the version you just installed. Depending on the manufacturer, some of the possible advantages of what you receive when you register your product are:

- Notices when bugs/problems are resolved
- Information about plug-ins or add-ons to help your software run better
- Free/Automatic software updates
- Free Technical Support (you pay for call only)
- Discounts on other product purchases
- Access to web sites, forums, discussion groups, etc.
- and many more …

Every computer that connects to the internet has a unique numerical identification number called an "Internet Protocol Address", or IP. This address is not the same as a living or work address so there's no need to be afraid. This address simply associates the software with the computer, and identifies it when it is attached to a network of other computers, or when communicating on the internet. With Adobe, for example, when you run your software for the first time, the software is activated in the background when it detects an internet connection. Your computer's IP address is associated with the software to help protect against unauthorized use. Also with Adobe products, activation authorizes you to use your product on two computers.

Happy Computing

Why Is your PC dragging

Is your PC dragging? Does your broadband network creep along at dial-up speeds? Do Web pages take forever to load on your smart phone? Don't wait! These fixes will get you back into the fast lane.

Has your PC lost its pep? How about your network connection, your printer or even your phone? Here's our guide to giving your gear new life. Follow our tips and you can fire up your system and your other tech essentials. Supercharge your PC's hardwareTo get top performance from your PC, use high-performance hardware. No amount of tweaking inside Windows can give you the same kind of speed boost that a few judicious hardware upgrades can. The most effective way to soup up any computer is to start by updating the components inside. Here we'll explain how to upgrade the two most vital components: the RAM and the graphics card. WARNING: Before you attempt any of these upgrades, take precautions against static electricity by moving your PC to a clean, uncarpeted workspace and using an anti-static wrist strap to discharge any static electricity from your body. Upgrade your RAM
Adding RAM is often the most cost-effective upgrade you can make to speed up a sluggish computer. When a system runs short of RAM, it must swap the overflow data to the hard drive, which can significantly slow performance. Here's how to add memory to your desktop, laptop or netbook.

RAM comes in many flavors, such as DDR2 and DDR3. Newer technologies offer faster performance, but most motherboards accept only one type of RAM. Check your PC's manual to find out what type of RAM modules you need and how you have to install them. RAM dealers such as Crucial and Kingston offer handy online tools that identify the appropriate RAM for many PCs and motherboards. Also, to take advantage of more than 4GB of RAM, your PC needs to run a 64-bit operating system; Windows 7 is available in a 64-bit version and we highly recommend it.

To begin, open your PC's case and look for the memory slots. In laptops and netbooks the RAM slots are usually under a removable panel on the bottom of the machine. To remove existing RAM, release the clips at each end of the module so that it pops loose. With the slots clear, gently but firmly insert the new module.On a desktop machine, it's often best to seat one corner of the module first and then press the other end into place. Once you've fully inserted the module, the clips should close to hold the memory securely. On a laptop or netbook, press the end with the metal leads into place first and then press down until the clips snap tightly around the ends. For a complete guide, see "How to Upgrade Your PC's RAM." Replace your graphics board
Even if you're not a gamer, upgrading your graphics board can give your PC a serious boost, since Windows 7 and Windows Vista both feature fancy effects in their user interface. Though you can upgrade the graphics on some laptops, in this article we'll focus on desktop PCs.

When shopping for a new graphics board, select one that fits the slot on your PC. In most newer systems, it will be a PCI-Express slot; some older systems may have only PCI or AGP slots. Fortunately, graphics card makers still sell products to fit older slots, so an outdated motherboard need not be a total obstacle.With your new board at the ready, open the PC's case and locate the existing graphics card. Before attempting to pull it loose, remove the screw holding it down and release any plastic clips on the motherboard that may be securing it. Once the old card is out of the way, slide the new board straight down into the slot until it is firmly seated and the plastic clip on the motherboard has snapped tightly around it.Newer PCI-Express graphics boards often use so much juice that they require a special PCI-E power line from the computer's power supply. If you've installed such a card, connect this power line (the board may have two) before closing up the case. Then boot the PC and install the drivers from the disc the manufacturer provided. For more advice on choosing a graphics board, check out "Geek 101: A Graphics Card Primer." Streamline WindowsWhether you run Windows XP, Vista or 7, you have a few really good ways to cut out the fluff and make your operating system run more smoothly, quickly and efficiently. By turning off unnecessary features and disabling unwanted startup programs, you can get an instant speed boost. Knock out the fatWindows -- yes, even Windows XP -- is loaded with effects that take up system resources without delivering meaningful user benefits. If you turn some of these items off, Windows can divert the resources to more useful activities, such as running your programs. In Windows XP, open the System control panel and click the Advanced tab. Click Settings and then select the radio button marked Adjust for best performance. This will turn off some of the frilly effects, such as drop shadows under your menus, and make Windows a little snappier. In Vista, start by disabling the resource hog known as the Sidebar. In both Vista and Windows 7, turn off the Aero environment to reclaim some of your PC's lost memory and processor power. To do this, right-click the desktop and choose Personalize from the context menu. In Vista, click Window color and appearance and then uncheck the box for Enable Transparency. In Windows 7, select the theme labeled Windows 7 Basic. Shut down memory-hogging appsOnce you've installed a fair amount of programs on your PC -- your "core base" of apps, as it were -- you'll want to check that you don't have any unwanted applications running in the background that could slow down your PC. Such programs may be designed to launch when Windows starts up so that you can load their corresponding applications faster. The problem is that they run all the time, regardless of whether you intend to use the parent application. In Windows 7 or Vista, click Start and type msconfig in the "Search programs and files" field. Press Enter. In the System Configuration window, select the Startup tab. In the Command column, look for any programs that you don't want to wait for at boot-up time. For example, take iTunes: If you've installed this application, you'll find both iTunesHelper.exe and QTTask.exe. They're unnecessary additions -- the former launches when you start iTunes anyway and the latter merely places a QuickTime icon in the corner of your screen for easy program launching. Uncheck both. Once you've checked all of the programs you want to launch at startup and unchecked the programs you don't, click OK.
In addition to startup programs, you can find services on your PC; Microsoft recommends trimming them as well. Click Start, type services.msc into the search field and press Enter. Up pops the Services window, a list of options and executables that's even more confusing than the Startup window.

To identify which services to turn off (and which to leave on), check out Black Viper's exhaustive list of Windows 7's services across all of its various editions, along with a list of which services you should modify and how you should set their parameters. Armed with this advice, just double-click on any listed service. You need concern yourself only with the "Startup type" listing in the screen that appears next. By switching among the Automatic, Manual and Disabled modes, depending on Black Viper's recommendations, you'll be able to control exactly how services launch -- if at all -- during the Windows startup process and during your general use of the operating system. Every little bit helps.

How to upgrade my pc with 512mb ram to a higher gb?

How to Upgrade Your PC's RAM This is a step-by-step guide to installing memory

$(function(){ $('.zoomLink').lightBox({maxWidth:1200,maxHeight:1200}); }) Adding RAM is often the most cost-effective upgrade you can make to speed up a sluggish computer. PCs that had more than enough RAM when they were new often have trouble keeping up with the demands of the latest programs after a few years. New operating systems almost always call for more memory, too. When a computer runs short of RAM, it's forced to swap the overflow data on and off of the hard drive, which can significantly slow performance.
Below, is a guide of how to diagnose a memory shortage and what to do about it. How do I know if I need more RAM?

Check your PC's RAM usage by opening Windows Task Manager. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del (Vista users will have to click Start Task Manager) and click the Performance tab. If the figure next to 'Available' (or 'Free' in Vista) under 'Physical Memory' hovers around zero and your PC seems sluggish, you need more RAM.
How much RAM do I need? The average Windows XP user should be satisfied with 1GB of RAM. Tests, which involve working with images and using Nero Express to burn CDs, ran one-third faster when upgraded from 512MB of RAM to 1GB. Power users who simultaneously run lots of demanding applications, or anyone regularly working with digital video or other large graphics files, will want at least 2GB. If you're planning to upgrade your PC to Windows Vista, you can still get away with 1GB, but for a more comfortable experience 2GB of RAM is recommended.
What kind of RAM works on my PC? RAM comes in many flavors, including DDR, DDR2, and DDR3. Newer technologies offer faster performance, but most motherboards accept only one type of RAM. Check your PC's manual to find out what type of RAM modules you need and how they have to be installed. RAM dealers such as Crucial and Kingston offer handy online tools for identifying the right RAM for many PCs and motherboards. Most PCs being upgraded today use dual-channel memory, which you must install in pairs for maximum performance, so adding two 512MB modules instead of one 1GB module may be better. Again, check your documentation.
Paying a few dollars more to buy RAM from a reliable manufacturer like Crucial or Kingston is usually worthwhile, as RAM quality isn't the place to save a few bucks.
What do I need to add more RAM? Tools: You'll need an antistatic wrist strap for grounding yourself. Your local computer store should have one for less than $15.
Documentation: Some motherboards require module pairs to be placed in specific banks, or pairs of RAM sockets. Consult your documentation before starting the upgrade.

What RAM Memory And Architechture Your Motherboard supports? Modern motherboards have a dual-channel architecture technology instead of single channel architecture found on older motherboards. It means you have to install computer memory modules in pairs.
It is important to know what your motherboard supports to get the most of it. An easy way to do it is to look in your motherboard book that comes with when you bought your computer. You should be able to find a table with every type of RAM modules supported by your motherboard and how to use them.
If you do not have the book but you know the code name for your motherboard model, then you can do a search on Internet at the manufacturer site. In the case you do not know the code name for your model, there is a good chance it is written on your buying bill, assuming you still have it.
I organized some links for the most popular brands to help you find it. Look at your motherboard model and try to find what it is supported by your motherboard.

Installing RAM For Single Or Dual-Channel Architecture?

Single channel:
Installing computer memory with a motherboard which uses single channel architecture makes things easier. You can use almost any combination of modules without affecting the RAM modules' overall performance.

In the other hand, if your motherboard uses dual-channel architecture, you will need a pair of RAM modules. If you want a total of 1 GB, you then need 2 RAM modules of 512 MB. It is imperative to install computer memory modules from the same manufacturer with the same clock rating from the same standard.
Otherwise, as I am explaining in the motherboard parts introduction at the memory slots section, odd results may happen.

Step 1 Preparation
Now that we know what the motherboard supports, we are ready to prepare our working area. Find a suitable place to work and then open your computer case by removing the left panel.

Note: If you have to break a seal to open your case, be advice that you will no longer be able to reclaim your insurance in the case something would happen to your computer in the future. Merchants put seals on the case to ensure clients will not attempt the repair themselves and then try to reclaim their insurance.

Clean your hands and be sure they are perfectly dry before touching any piece of hardware.
Step 2 Field recognition
Find the RAM memory socket #1 or A. If you are unable to find which one it is by looking at the motherboard, then look in your motherboard book. When you found the slots order, open the side brackets for the memory slots you will use. When the brackets are closed, you cannot install computer memory modules.
It is better to start installing the modules in order, that is why we try to find the order on the motherboard.

Step 3 Installation

Caution: Do not touch the module's contacts; a fingerprint there could render your module useless.

RAM Module Schema Take the module by its thin side without putting pressure on the chips, then look at the bottom notch to figure out which side your module must be inserted in the memory socket.
Gently sit the module in the memory socket until it stay in place, then with your thumbs, press on the module from its points of pressure as shown on the image until the socket's brackets come close to the side notches. When the brackets are close, hook them in the side notches.
Now repeat the process for all the modules you have to install.

Congratulation, you just installed your memory modules by yourself.

Program won't open claims insufficient memory. Close other programs.

Although school systems are basically at minimum specs I would like to have known them. Probably 1gig or less.
This software alone calls for a 1/2 of a gig (500MB's) of ram just for it to run.Then other software that may be installed on it. Like Office Home & student or ? That's 250 to 500mbs more. if its installed.If the operating system calls for at least 256MB to 500MB, the Video/ audio software,java,and other necessary software your probably talking a minimum of 1.5 to 2 gigs of ram needed with this software installed.
With your left hand, press n hold the control-alt keys. While holding them down, tap the delete key with your right . Enter the task manager and choose Processes. Here you will see a column with numbers, with a K on the end. These are the programs that are currently running and the amount of memory being used at that specific time for each. To figure it with ease, each 1,000k is 1 MB of ram being used. So 100,000k is 100mb's.
You can find out how much memory the system has by putting the mouse pointer over the "My Computer" Icon. Right click it & choose properties. See it listed
Or go into the Control Panel & choose System Properties.
