Hi,
I am not sure if I understand your exact problem. If you are trying to have some sort of "security" I would recommend a 8 camera system. You can get them for around 700$. here is an example
http://www.techsunny.com/3235434/lts-dvr-h264-8-ch-security.html
You may need extra cabling etc depending on the size and your needs. To truly keep everyone safe you would need security working and on hand. That is the only way to really keep a party "safe". Hope this information helps if you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
lee

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Have you purchased a security system yet? How many cameras do you have to set up? Will this security system be on the web or just recorded?

Is the above model (category) correct: Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000?

I can assist further with this information.

    I would definitely recommend placing the one camera where the most people will be. The security will not only be protection for your guest but also for your property. I would recommend attaching it to your computer and downloading a "camcroder software" (there should be some on-line for free) or perhaps Microsoft is kind enough to give you this software with the purchase of your new camera.



    The camera should be placed as high as possible and be in a corner for 3 wall, downside view. This way, you catch quite a bit. If you visit a local electronics store, you can purchase an extender for the camera so you can place it higher.



    I am not sure if you were thinking of hiding the camera, personally, I wouldn't because everyone will know you have security and just "assume" you have it all around the house, making them more careful.



    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!

What can i do to fix my dell inspiron one desktop from freezing at windows starting screen


press f8 vigorously as the computer begins to boot. this should take you to the windows start options screen, which includes diagnostic tools such as windows repair/restore and safe mode.

Windows repair (repair your computer) has a start up repair function which you can attempt, and if that does not work, there is a windows restore (from previous back up/restore point) in the repair utility as well.

If neither of those features work, choose "run in safe mode(/with networking)" at the f8 windows start options screen instead of "repair my computer". it may be usable in safe mode, and safe mode may reveal more clues about an actual hardware malfunction.

long story short, f8 before windows begins to cycle up.

SAM file Vulnerability in Microsoft Windows OS !



I’m introducing this tip to explain to you the dangerous vulnerability in windows (2000 ,XP, Vista and WIN7 ) Local users accounts .
The important question here is: am I safe when using windows user account with a strong password ?
Does this password prevents other people see or access my own and very private files?
The answer is definitely NO !!!
Because of SAM file Vulnerability that microsoft insists to use in every OS version starting with windows 2000 till now.
The local accounts you create in windows are stored in SAM file that exists in the following path “C:Windows\System32\config” .

The good news is that the file is encrypted but the bad news is that there is a lot of third party tools that can clear any password stored in that file Offline (via booting from a boot disk or CD or USB drive that contains the crack tool ) , and if anyone managed to apply such software on your pc that means that he is able to login with a blank password . but wait a second the victim can easily discover that someone missed up the his or her password (this is good but too late ) because the attacker has got what he wanted.

Some clever Hackers uses another technique which is : copying your original SAM file to some safe place , then apply one of the third party tools, then reboot and enjoys accessing your files eventually he restore your original SAM file (which contains your Non-blank password) by overwriting the cracked SAM . this way you won’t even feel any change to your VERY SECURE PASSWORD !!!!.


Putting all in a nutshell , nothing is 100% secure , i suggest to take these these best practices in to your concedratin :

- Use Bios Password instead of windows password specially with laptops(in laptops Bios password can not be cracked or cleared by Jumper )
- Never leave your confidential data on the same hard disk drive of your pc , it is better to save them to external hard drives or USB sticks or DVD.
-Convert Fat32 drives to NTFS and Use Encrypting File System (EFS) feature to store files in an encrypted format on your hard disk.
-Some laptops has a hardware encryption chip that can encrypt data on hard disk drive.
-windows vista and 7 (Ultimate and Business Edition) has a new hard disk encryption feature called BitLocker that prevents a thief who boots another operating system or runs a software hacking tool from breaking Windows files .

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

HP Pavilion dv62020sa comes black screen how can i solved ?


HI there,

To understand this much better,could you please elaborate:

When it shows black screen,While booting up,after showing the Windows logo?

Which is the operating system?

However i will assume your operating system as windows 7.

I would suggest you to try the following steps:


Step 1:Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner, USB(universal serial bus) drives, etc...)Except mouse and the keyboard and then boot up.

If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.

Step 2: Boot the computer in safe mode. To do this, follow the steps below:

Access the Advanced boot options menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key continuously before Windows starts. On the advanced boot options menu select Safe Mode.

Advanced startup options (including safe mode)

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode


Enable clean boot in safe mode


Step 3: Put the computer in clean boot, to figure out if any third party software is hindering the process

Enable clean boot, see step 1 in the link below:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

If everything works fine after a clean boot, you can infer that some third party services are causing the problem.

Proceed with the remaining steps to pin-point out the third party service.

Note: After you figure out the problem causing program, you may have to update or install a higher version of the program, if you seldom use that software you can consider uninstalling

Important: - Remember to put the computer back to normal startup follow step 7 in the link.

Your system is infected by Sasser worm.The Sasser worm infects machines via network connections. It can attack entire networks of computers or one single computer connected to the Internet. The worm exploits a known windows vulnerability that is easily patched, however few systems seem to have this patch installed. It attacks Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines along with Windows NT and Windows Server 2003.


The patch from Microsoft known as the MS04-011 Security Update fixes the following vulnerabilities:
LSASS Vulnerability 
LDAP Vulnerability 
PCT Vulnerability 
Winlogon Vulnerability 
Metafile Vulnerability 
Help and Support Center Vulnerability 
Utility Manager Vulnerability 
Windows Management Vulnerability 
Local Descriptor Table Vulnerability 
H.323 Vulnerability 
Virtual DOS Machine Vulnerability 
Negotiate SSP Vulnerability 
SSL Vulnerability 
ASN.1 “Double-Free” Vulnerability 

Download the Windows patches for this vulnerability.Here is the link below:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04-011.mspx



How Can I Remove the Sasser worm?

Follow these steps in removing the Sasser worm.

1) Disconnect your computer from the local area network or Internet

2) Terminate the running program
Open the Windows Task Manager by either pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL, selecting the Processes tab or selecting Task Manager and then the process tab on WinNT/2000/XP machines.
Locate one of the following programs (depending on variation), click on it and End Task or End Process

avserve.exe
avserve2.exe
skynetave.exe
any process running with the "_up.exe" suffix
Close Task Manager

3) Activate the Windows XP Firewall (if running Windows XP) or another firewall to prevent the worm from shutting your system down while downloading the patches. To activate the Windows XP firewall, follow these steps.
Click on Start, Control Panel
Double-click on Networking and Internet Connections, then click on Network Connnections
Right-click on the connection you use to access the Internet and choose Properties
Click on the Advanced Tab and check the box
"Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet"
Click OK and close out of the Network and Control Panel

4) Remove the Registry entries
Click on Start, Run, Regedit
In the left panel go to 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run
In the right panel, right-click and delete the following entry

"avserve.exe"="%Windir%\avserve.exe"
"avserve2.exe"="%Windir%\avserve2.exe"
"skynetave.exe"= "%Windows%\skynetave.exe"
Close the Registry Editor

5) Delete the infected files (for Windows ME and XP remember to turn off System Restore before searching for and deleting these files to remove infected backed up files as well)
Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.
Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:\WINDOWS).
In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type, or copy and paste, the file names:

avserve.exe
avserve2.exe
skynetave.exe
C:\win2.log
Click Find Now or Search Now.
Delete the displayed files.
Empty the Recycle bin

6) Reboot the computer and update your antivirus software, and run a thorough virus scan using your favorite antivirus program.

For Automatic Removal of Sasser, download the Symantec removal tool, you'll still need to download the patches above and install them, however this removal tool will stop the Sasser worm from running, remove the items in the registry, and delete the infected files.

Microsofrt windows xp pro [debugger enabled]windows loads and stalls or freezes on entry cant go any further or open anything


:) For what purpose you need a debugger when you can not fix your own mess :) ?!?

Which debugger have you installed? It must be a ring 0 i guess if auto loading drivers (SoftIce, Syser or RR0D .. WinDBG will not crash your OS )

Just go SafeMode and remove all autorun entries for the debugger ( drivers included ), use autoruns from M$ Technet ( SysInternals ), or just System Restore to previous point where you were not trying things that are out of your league ;)

A piece of advice :
For debugging use dedicated machine or virtual one

Sounds like an infection. Your best bet is to start it and keep pressing F8 for safe mode. Once in there do a restore point. If that fails im sorry to say it may be a complete reinstall with a disk...Hope this helps....

Boot-up in "Safe Mode", and backup all your data files to CD/DVD-writables, or to a USB memory-stick. Include your E-mail and any license-key files for purchased software.

Then, reinstall Windows.
