Most blocking of downloads are caused by the Firewall software installed. Most allow you to change the settings, to allow the download. Otherwise switch it off while you download the software and then turn it back on. Some Firewalls can go faulty so you could try an update or restore the firewall software.

How to block unwanted number


  1. The first thing you can do is to make sure your cell phone number is unlisted. This is a simple step but it's the first step in keeping unwanted calls from your cell phone.
  2. You can unmask the Caller ID on blocked incoming calls, obtain the phone number, and in some cases the name and address, of the "anonymous caller" by using a service called "TrapCall." You can also listen to your voicemail over the internet.
    TrapCall allows you to unmask numbers, record your calls, voicemail transcriptions, block unwanted callers, and gives you caller id for your cell phone. See resource link.
  3. Register your number with the "National and State Do Not Call Lists." The National Do Not Call list is run by the Federal Trade Commission and you can sign up online at the resource link below.
  4. Even after signing up for the "Don't Call List" and getting that unpublished number there are still those times when the telemarketer finds a way to get through. You can also get unwanted calls from ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends'. These people have your number from your previous relationship. You don't want to change your number, but a few over-zealous ex-mates may not go down without a fight and will continue to call after you have told them to stop! In this case, you'll need a call blocking device. These devices allow you to control who calls you, and gives you the ability to permanently block their numbers. See the resource link at bottom of article for a list of these devices.
  5. Set up an account with "Reverse Phone Detective" service in order to find out the Unknown numbers that appear on your caller display. This will allow you to see who and where the number is coming from. Check the resource link "Reverse Phone Detective" below.

Don't rely on your cell phone provider to block unwanted calls for you. For some inexplicable reason, most carriers do not provide you with the ability to block unwanted callers.

My best bet is to go with the google voice number(you can do a lot of things besides blocking unwanted numbers and its free) ..

here is the link to find more information about it

Press on ctrl A or highlight everything to select all files. delete all files from temp. note: there are some files that will not be deleted just ignore them if a message box appears. this procedure will eliminate unwanted softwares that were saved from temp folder during initial installation.

Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.

The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.

When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

I am trying to get to an anti spyware website to download the spy ware to check my computer i can not get to the site although my main computer i can get to it, so i know it is up and working.


You likely have spyware which is blocking your ability to connect to a site that will help you remove it. A lot of todays Spyware and Malware is programmed to identify and block your attempts to remove it. Try downloading Microsoft's Security Essentials (free) or other free Spyware Removal program onto your main computer and saving it to a CDROM, Flash Drive or other media you can use to install and run the application on your infected PC. DO NOT DO A SYSTEM RESTORE. If the malware is blocking your ability to remove it, A system restore will likely not have any effect. Once you have been able to execute a removal software on your computer and have eliminated the threats, then only do a system restore if you have a restore point that you are certain is prior to when the infection occured.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.

How do I eliminate unwanted e-mails?


The exact methodology depends on which program you are using, but each program generally has a method for establishing blocked domains or addresses, or setting junk mail filters, depending on what it is you are trying to eliminate. You should be able to locate these features pretty quickly either through the program's help, or by simply reviewing the menu item choices, and following the steps.

If you need further assistance, please post back with more detail regarding the program and the type email you are trying to block. If this leads to your resolution, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Check whether your mobile supports symbian os. there are more call blacklisting softwares for Symbian os built mobile phones. Else if your mobile is java compatible then try to find some call blacklisting java softwares from websites
