How can i hack into a wifi internet (DSL) ,Is any program or master password for it ?


If you are trying to access your neighbour's protected wireless network to get into his Internet connection There is no master encryption password.
To get your neighbour's Internet you need to ask for your neighbour's permission and if granted he will give you this encryption password.

How To Password Protect & Decrypt Microsoft Office 2010 Documents


Microsoft office 2010 , the next big buzz from Microsoft after Windows 7, is a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows,and the successor to Microsoft Office 2007.

Screenshots of Microsoft Office 2010

Not long ago I was just wrote an article about How to Password Protect Microsoft Office 2007 Documents. Now I’ll write a similar article about office 2010 by popular demand.
Microsoft Office 2010 indeed simplified the process to password protect and encrypt office documents. Which was considered a commendable improvement over password protecting documents under Office 2007. as the new process for Office 2010 is consistent across the core Office product line which including Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 etc. so here I only need to show you how the process just once using Microsoft Word 2010 as example.
Follow the step-to-step guide To Protect A Word 2010 Document Using Built-in Password Encryption
1. Click the File tab, then Click Info. On the menu to the right Click Protect Document and
Click Encrypt with Password.

2. The Encrypt Document dialog will appear, Type in a password and then Click OK to finish.

Please note – It’s very important to use a STRONG Password or Pass Phrase to protect your word document. Using a long PASS PHRASE (IE:I enjoyed myself today!) however with 10 or more characters will significantly increase the encryption strength of the document and decrease the likelihood someone will be able to break the encryption and gain access to your document.
After setting a password, your document should be protected!
Having password protected your word document? Someone should ask what if I forgot the password. So that’s what I’ll show below.
Follow the step-to-step guide To decrypt Word 2010 Document Using word password recovery 5.0
With this user guide, even a new user can fully control Word Password Recovery 5.0 in less than a minute.
Step1: Click “File>Open” in the Menu or the “Open” button to browse in the Word document.


Select your file in the Open File window, and click “Open“.

Step2: Select “Brute-force Attack (Trying All Possible Combinations)“.

Step3: Click “Start” button in the Menu to initiate the program.

Step4: The program is searching the password. Some time later, a message box pops up to you, displaying the expected password. Click “Remove All Passwords from the File” to remove all passwords (Password to Open and Password to Edit) from the file. Click “OK“.

Following this article, you could password protected your office 2010 and decrypt password protected office 2010 with ease.

Secure Your Windows PC For Free


With the online holiday buying season upon us, the most important thing to remember is computer security. Each day millions of threats cycle through the Internet, most of which harm computers and home networks. These threats hunt for credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other personal information and can be used against you in the form of identity theft. Here are some tips to help secure your PC and keep your information safe and locked down.

1. Windows Update
This is the number one reason computers fall victim to malicious threats (viruses, spyware, etc.) is not updating the Windows operating system. During the spring of 2009, the virus named "conficker" targeted computers that were not fully updated. To update the Windows, first the computer needs to be connected to the Internet, whether it would be wired or wireless network connection. Then go to Start > Programs > Windows Update. Let Widows Update complete and afterward your computer will be up-to-date.

2. Anti-Virus Program
Some sort of anti-virus software should be the bare minimum for computer security. Not having protection can increase the chances of viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, and identity theft. There are some free as well as paid versions, but for basic web surfing and email free versions will work just fine. Here are some recommended free anti-virus programs.
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
Avira Anti-Vir
Avast Home Edition
Microsoft Security Essentials

3. Firewall
A firewall blocks incoming web traffic not requested by the computer user. Firewalls can prevent malware from entering the computer thus fewer viruses and spyware. A great, free firewall program called Comodo can protect your PC and the user can select various security levels for added protection.

4. Windows Defender
Windows Defender is spyware program from Microsoft that is built in to Windows Vista and Windows 7 and as a download for Windows XP, which can be found here. Defender offers protection from spyware, pop-ups, and slow performance. To access Windows Defender, go to Start > Programs > Windows Defender then click the scan button at the top of the window and then remove the threats when complete. Windows Defender is a simple solution to increase computer performance.

5. Encryption
Encryption continues to be a major issue in protecting computer data if it fell into the wrong hands. Many users have huge amounts of information about themselves on their computer including pictures, internet history, email messages, contacts, login usernames and passwords, and much much more. What encryption does is locks the files with a series of numbers and letters making impossible to decode or read for that matter. But the user can read the files with a key and a password which unlocks the files that were encrypted. I recommend using TrueCrypt for encrypting files and works with all versions of Windows.

As for all security software, plan on allowing, at minimum, running all the security programs (anti-virus, firewall, Defender, and more) each week to make sure the computer is protected. It's very easy to secure computers and with a few clicks you even can make it automatic.

If questions arise or need assistance installing or running any of the programs mention above, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to assist you in any way.

I have a dell inspiron 1300 laptop with service tag: #CBWBD2J-595B and i need system/bios password for it.Any help is appreciated?


To unlock your laptop using the easiest method available go to: http://dell-inspiron-1300-bios-password.biospwd.com

Dell password authentication system explained :

The BIOS of most modern computers also allow a password to be set for each of the connected hard drives. This password is stored in the service area of the hard disk. Because of this, moving the password protected hard drive to a new computer does not allow access to the hard drive unless the password that was assigned to the hard drive is provided.
The ATA Security Mode Feature Set that is implemented in all modern hard drives actually provides for two passwords, a "Master Password" and a "User Password"
The User Password locks the hard drive and the Master Password is only used to allow an administrator to reset the user password.
The BIOS of many computers will not allow the master password for the hard drive to be changed from the default, so they rarely are. A quick search of Google.com for the specific model of hard drive with the phrase "ATA Master Password" will generally result in multiple web pages that contain the default master password . Hardware tools can recover, reset, or brute-force both the User and Master Passwords.

Full Disk Encryption Methods:

There are two major categories of full disk encryption (FDE)-software-based and hardware-based. Software-based encryption modifies the hard drive drivers and uses the CPU to encrypt all data as it is written to the drive and decrypt all data read from the hard drive. Hardware-based full disk encryption is built into the hard drive and is totally transparent to the user and does not impose a performance impact on the computer.
Software-Based Full Disk Encryption
Wikipedia maintains a lengthy list of disk encryption software The two most popular FDE software implementations are TrueCrypt and BitLocker. BitLocker is included as a feature in the Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7, but has to be enabled and configured to provide protection. TrueCrypt [18] is free open source software that is ideal for individual users, but lacks management features that make it attractive to enterprise-wide deployment.
Deployment of software-based full disk encryption in any organization with more than just a few computers requires careful consideration of how the encryption keys will be managed. Great encryption without proper key management is like locking the doors to your house and leaving the key under your doormat. One study on the usage of encryption states that 54 percent of respondents had experienced either stolen or unaccounted for encryption keys and that 78 percent experienced system downtime due to encryption failures in the past twelve months [20]. Full Disk Encryption solutions that are targeted at the enterprise typically offer integration with Microsoft's Active Directory or other LDAP directories for secure key management.
In 2008, security researchers created shockwaves by publishing a paper called Lest We Remember: Cold Boot Attacks on Encryption Keys [21]. This paper, and the accompanying YouTube video demonstrate how Software-Based FDE can be circumvented by rebooting a computer that has been left in a locked-screen or sleep state. The attack exploits the fact that Dynamic Random Access Memory

The cd\dvd or any other removable media is designed for transporting data from one place to another to work on diff machines.
So the normal data can be accessed every where.

U cannot password protect the cd, not so far.
If u dont want to compress using winzip/winrar & set passwords

There are some encryption tools that allow u to make a keydisk that u can use so that only with the keydisk the files can be read
