Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Best way to describe problem is to give you an example. When I surf the web and I type in lets say "Marriott Hotels" to find all the different listings, the www address for most of the listings for Marriott don't have anything to do with Marriott Hotels. For example it might say Marriott on top of the listing but the web address below it will be www.savethemarriage.com. I can't even get one to come up that will give me www.marriott.com. Even when I just type in Google, it won't give me a www.google.com address.to choose from. If I not able to chat with you live, as I don't know if I have the hookup to do that, you can email me at ctinkel@cox.net Thanks, Carma

Personal experience with Anti Virus/Internet Security


Lets begin. For the past couple of time I have try many many program for security.
Differences between Anti Virus and Internet Security are pretty much self explain from the name.
Anti viruses are first-rate when it comes to offline scanning for example what ever is inside the system it performs well and its reasonable. While Internet security can manage together online and offline scans through out the time for example when you are surfing the internet it protects viruses that tries to come with the files you download it also helps when you use a chat client. So for short its the best security for the system since it can protect you no matter in what situation you are.

Now its time for me to share what paid Internet Security I currently use is the Kaspersky Internet Security 2011.

I have experience with these softwares.
Panda
McAfee
AVG
Deepfreeze (Didn't use it but have seen its features and I know how it works)
Avast
Avira
NOD32

For me I believe there is no best. It depends on you. When you get to try something that's the time you will start to feel how it performs for you. Although when I started using Kaspersky Internet Security I kind of got annoyed because of the pop ups that it gives when ever you install a software, game, or even run them. But I mean it gives total security right?

Now the best part about the Kaspersky Internet Security that any other Anti Virus or Internet Securities doesn't give me. Its called the Anti Banner

What does it do?
It removes every single advertisement on any site even especially annoying ads on Youtube videos or even on sites have it on the sides and sometimes even at the top. It removes it all. It also helps your pages load faster and safer and did you know that the ads on sites are also viruses sometimes? Because what ever you do while you surf on the internet it's been downloaded on to your system hard drive. That's the reason why I use a browser that can be easily set to "Never remember history" It helps you to save space as well keep it safe from sites having viruses and worms.

Here in my Country it costs $65 - $75 for three systems. And its one year/each. That's the problem its expensive. You can still go for the older version which is the 2010 and it still performs perfect and it has the Anti Banner option. It comes in single user or three users. (Didn't see the single user price)

Hope this helps. Cheers. And God speed FixYa.

Difference between a hub , switch and a router


Hubs, switches, and routers are all devices which let you connect one or more computers to other computers, networked devices, or to other networks. Each has two or more connectors called ports into which you plug in the cables to make the connection. Varying degrees of magic happen inside the device, and therein lies the difference. I often see the terms misused so let's clarify what each one really means.

A hub is typically the least expensive, least intelligent, and least complicated of the three. Its job is very simple: anything that comes in one port is sent out to the others. That's it. Every computer connected to the hub "sees" everything that every other computer on the hub sees. The hub itself is blissfully ignorant of the data being transmitted. For years, simple hubs have been quick and easy ways to connect computers in small networks.

A switch does essentially what a hub does but more efficiently. By paying attention to the traffic that comes across it, it can "learn" where particular addresses are. For example, if it sees traffic from machine A coming in on port 2, it now knows that machine A is connected to that port and that traffic to machine A needs to only be sent to that port and not any of the others. The net result of using a switch over a hub is that most of the network traffic only goes where it needs to rather than to every port. On busy networks this can make the network significantly faster.


A router is the smartest and most complicated of the bunch. Routers come in all shapes and sizes from the small four-port broadband routers that are very popular right now to the large industrial strength devices that drive the internet itself. A simple way to think of a router is as a computer that can be programmed to understand, possibly manipulate, and route the data its being asked to handle. For example, broadband routers include the ability to "hide" computers behind a type of firewall which involves slightly modifying the packets of network traffic as they traverse the device. All routers include some kind of user interface for configuring how the router will treat traffic. The really large routers include the equivalent of a full-blown programming language to describe how they should operate as well as the ability to communicate with other routers to describe or determine the best way to get network traffic from point A to point B.

How do i lock the facebook site


The Internet is a vast web of inter-connected servers which may host inappropriate websites for certain people, especially children. The following instructions are for blocking malicious and unwanted websites in all versions of Internet Explorer. If you are using Firefox or other browsers, you may want to consider another, much more advanced way, to block websites using a host file: Use a Hosts File in Windows. Here is the easiest and most effective method to safely surf the Internet through IE.
1)Open Internet Explorer. In the Menubar click Tools ? Internet Options ? Content. In the Content Advisor box, click Enable.
2)Click the Approved Sites tab. Enter the address of the website.
Keep in mind - if you want to block the complete website put * in front. For example to block myspace completely, type *.
Click Never and then OK.

3)Click on the General tab and make sure to selectUsers can see websites that have no ratings
4)Enter a password you can remember easily with a hint.
5)Click OK to safely surf the Internet.

How do i find information about my address and port?


im guessing here you mean your ip addess and open ports on your computer right ??

ok firstly your computer uses 3 ip address
  1. loop back ,, 127.0.0.1 (slandered) for all computers , this is used for internal progressing and phrasing.
  2. a local ip address ,,This ip vaires what it is basically is the ip address given to your computer by your router ,, its the address that the router recgonises as your computer , so different computers connected to the same router have differect local address.. it usually starts with 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.0.X.X
  3. Foreign / Internet Ip address, no matter what type of router this address varies for each router!!!!!. lets say you have 7 computer on the same router , each will have the same foreign address but different local address's.
PORTS !!!
will ports are used for different things for example web surfing is port 80, ftp is 21, different software uses cretin ports to allow computers to different machines over the internet or other network to interface with them directly..

Hope i explained all that simply,, well here is how you get the info u need..in all Operating systems the process is a bit different here i will outline 2 ways each,, for XP and for win vista / win 7.. ok lets get started..

XP..

to determine local ip address,,
  • click start , control panel
  • network / internet connections / network connections
  • double click on local area connection or what ever name u see..
  • click support,, there you go see your ip.. click details for more info
alternate method
  • double click on the network connection icon to the buttom right of your screen.. follow last step above

  • click start then run
  • type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all and hit enter
that will list all the info about your connection for you..

ok ports in win XP

click start then run,, type cmd and hit enter
type netstat - n

that will list all ports / ip address that they are connection too..
the ports that you see are the open ports.. there is an alternat method to see it in the windows firewall setting but i did not list it since its most incomplete,, background processes dont show up there ,, like a virus..

skip to foreign address !!! BELOW

ok vista...or windows 7

start control panel
network
manage network connection / view or edit network connections
double click on local area network click support if necessary ,, you will see your ip address there (LOCAL)

  • OR ,, click start, in the run box type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all hit enter
  • that will list your local address among other things..
PORTS ,, VISTA / WIN 7
click start
in the run box type cmd and hit enter
type netstat -n and hit enter,,
this will list all open ports and the ip address that they are connected to..


FOREIGN ADDRESS
this is easy.. go to http://www.whatismyip.com the address that shows up is your foreign address..

well I hope thats a Fixya, or at least a very helpful after all that typing it would be sad if i didnt answer your question or was wrong abou what you wanted to know.. good luck and let me know if you need any more help..

How to eliminate the needless visual effects for better windows performance?


Today tip will help you to increase the performance of your computer by eliminating the needless visual effects. By default windows XP gives you many options in the graphics fields to enjoy maximum graphics. For example, you can add pictures on folders and drop shadow on icon to give you better look but it will effect on the performance of your computer, especially on an older computer. Window XP has many default graphics which is not so useful for a common user, if you re-adjust these graphics then there is less effect on the user activities but the performance of computer will be increase tremendously. Here I will tell you how to choose:
To edit these settings, first you should log onto your computer with administrative rights.
Click Start button and type sysdm.cpl in Run box then press Ok button for next.

Here a dialog box will appear with the title "System Properties", select "Advanced" tab.

Here click on Settings button under Performance area.

When you have done then "Performance Options" dialog box will appear with different options. Here select the Visual Effects tab and choose the settings you want to use for the appearance and performance of windows on this computer.

Turns off all the visual effects in the option of "Adjust for best performance" and when you select the option "Adjust for best appearance" it will gives you opposite effect ,Everything will turns on. Selecting "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer" triggers, as you might guess, different choices on different computers. And to pick and choose individual effects yourself, choose "custom" then decide which ones you want.

I keep getting re-directed from the web site I type into the search box - I have an HP a1310n PC


This issue is most likely related to the web site you are viewing, or the browser you are viewing it with. Internet Explorer, for example, is historically incompatible with developing standards for web sites. Try firefox, or a different site.

I bought an HP Laptop 3 months ago (with Windows Vista) and the Internet keeps crashing when I'm online. It starts up again automatically, which helps, but I lose the pages I was on. Is is my PC or Vista?...


Try clearing your browser history & cache. When these get to full it causes the problem you describe. You can access these features from the tools icon on your browser>internet options. Hope this helps.

Xp is not loading memory


You might not have bought the correct memory. I don't know if you use SDRAM, DDR or DDR-2, but there are different types of RAM within those categories. In SDRAM for example there is ECC and non-ECC. One checks errors, the other not, ALL TYPES OF RAM NEED TO BE THE SAME TYPE ECC OR NON ECC.  Also, you may have three slots that take 528MB max for example, put a 1 GB ram into that slot and it aint gonna work. Please let me know what type of memory you had, put in, and type of computer. You can try going to www.cruicial.com if you want to check what type of RAM your motherboard (computer part) will take.
hope this helps. post again if you can't figure it out. PS Try computer recyclers for cheaper ram than Frys or Best Buy.
