Hi,

I would assume that this is the only page you can not access, all others including fixya (this site) is available.

If yes then perhaps what needs to be done is to clear your local DNS/host cache of the unavailability of http://www.adsurfdailywebroom.com.
Why - When you tried the above webpage a couple of days ago and by sheer chance that it was unavailable, that unavailability condition was somehow stored in your PC hence from thereon everytime you try to access that page, your browser will check first locally (in your PC) for its corresponding numbers (IP Address) in its local host file, finding that it is logged there as unavailable, it simply displays that without consulting outside (on the Internet).

How - if there is a networking icon in your PC's System Tray (right side bottom bear the clock that looks like two (2) monitors) pls right click and then click on Repair. If there is no such icon, you can click on Start, Run and type "cmd" less the quotes. On the next window (command prompt) pls type "ipconfig /flushdns".
Should this be not corrective, you can try the ping command.
Again, pls click on Start, Run, and type "cmd" less the quotes. On the next window (command prompt) pls type "ping www.adsurfdailywebroom.com" again less the quotes. It should reply with something like:
Reply from 69.93.225.98: bytes=32 time= 122ms TTL=47, if repeated 4 times guess you're good to go. If not change the www.adsurfdailywebroom.com with 69.93.225.98. If still a no go, pls post back with the displayed message.

Hope this be of initial help. Pls post back as requested, how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    My response is to my understanding that you can not accesshttp://www.adsurfdailywebroom.com while all other websites are available.

    Should it be different such as accessing a particular page from that website that contains a pdf file that you would rather view and not save in your PC, then perhaps what needs to be done is to update your Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    Cheers.

How to remove google history?


Internet privacy is a growing concern for most users. Major Web browsers, websites and operating systems all implement policies and functions to let you take control of your private information. Google search keeps track of the searches you perform using Google main page. If you have a Google ID, this search history follows you from one computer or device to another. Google also includes a function to clear your search history whenever you want. Open your preferred Web browser and go to Google's website. Sign in if necessary. Click your name in the top right corner. Click the "Privacy" option in the menu that appears. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click the "Sign into Dashboard" button. Enter you password when prompted. Scroll down to the "Web History" section. Click the "Remove items or clear Web History" link. Click the "Remove all Web History" button. Confirm that you want to delete you Web History. Hope this helps.

Tip

Registry Hacks


Menu Speed

When XP first appeared, there was a lot of conversation about the new interface, both good andad. In spite of the initial complaints, most users stick with the default settings rather than reverting to the Classic interface found in previous Windows versions. But you may want to change the delay you notice when you click on the Start Menu. I see no reason for there to be any delay when I click on the Start Menu. Effects are pretty, but I wouldn't click on it if I didn't have business inside, so let's get it open and get moving. The default speed can be adjusted with a quick Registry hack.
Go to the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay. The default value is 400. Set it to 0 to remove the delay completely, but if you do that it will be nearly impossible to move the mouse fast enough not to activate All Programs if you mouse over it en route to your final selection. Pick a number that suits your style, make the change, then test it until you find a good compromise between speed and usability.
Place Windows Kernel into RAM
It's a given that anything that runs in RAM will be faster than an item that has to access the hard drive and virtual memory. Rather than have the kernel that is the foundation of XP using the slower Paging Executive functions, use this hack to create and set the DisablePagingExecutive DWORD to a value of 1.
Edit the Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ Session Manager\Memory Management\DisablePagingExecutive to 1 to disable paging and have the kernel run in RAM (set the value to 0 to undo this hack). Exit the Registry and reboot. Perform this hack only if the system has 256 MB or more of installed RAM!
Disable 8.3 Name Creation in NTFS
Files that use the 8.3 naming convention can degrade NTFS drive performance. Unless you have a good reason for keeping the 8.3 naming convention intact (such as if you're using 16-bit programs), a performance gain can be achieved by disabling it:
Set the Registry DWORD key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ FileSystem\NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation to 1. Exit the Registry and reboot.

Whenever you surf the Web, you leave yourself open to being snooped upon by web sites. They can track your online travels, know what operating system and browser you're running, find out your machine name, peer into your clipboard, uncover the last sites you've visited, examine your history list, delve into your cache, examine your IP address and use that to learn basic information about you such as your geographic location, and more. To a great extent, your Internet life is an open book when you visit.
Don't believe me? Head to http://www.anonymizer.com/snoop/test_ip.shtml. This page, run by the Anonymizer.com web service, tells you what your IP address and machine name are. And that's just a start. Click on the links on the left side, such as "Exposed Clipboard" and "Geographical Location." You'll see just a small sampling of what web sites can learn about you.
Much of the reason why web sites can find out this information about you is due to the trusting nature of the Internet's infrastructure and is inherent in the open client/server relationship between your web browser and the servers on the sites you visit. But a lot of it also has to do with the ability to match up information from your PC to information in publicly available databases—for example, databases that have information about IP addresses.
The best way to make sure web sites can't gather personal information about you and your computer is to surf anonymously; use an anonymous proxy server to sit between you and the web sites you visit. When you use an anonymous proxy server, your browser doesn't contact a web site directly. Instead, it tells a proxy server which web site you want to visit. The proxy server then contacts the web site, and when you get the web site's page you don't get it directly from the site. Instead, it's delivered to you by the proxy server. In that way, your browser never directly contacts the web server whose site you want to view. The web site sees the IP address of the proxy server, not your PC's IP address. It can't read your cookies, see your history list, or examine your clipboard and cache, because your PC is never in direct contact with it. You're able to surf anonymously, without a trace.
There are two primary ways to use anonymous proxy servers. You can run client software on your PC, which does the work of contacting the server for you, or you can instead visit a web site, which then does the work of contacting the server.

Cannot sign in hotmail


Check you username and password.

Hotmail passwords are case sensitive, so something as simple as having your caps lock on can keep you from accessing your account.


Double check to be sure you are typing both your username and password exactly how you created them.


Reset your password.

If you haven't logged into your Hotmail in some time and suspect you might be using the wrong password, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Hotmail log-in page.


On the next screen, follow the prompts to enter your email address and the given security verification code.

Click "continue" and on the next screen, select the option that allows you to answer your pre-set security question.


This is a question you supplied when you set up your Hotmail account.

After correctly answering the question, you will be prompted to reset your password.


Clear your browser history and temporary Internet folders if you are continually getting a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" message when you log in.


The exact procedure for doing this depends on your operating system and browser.

If you continue to get see this message, it could indicate a problem with the Hotmail server.


Check the status of the network on a site like Down Right Now that reports server problems on popular sites.


Submit a support request on the Windows Live page.

On the Windows Live site, select "Hotmail" under "Standard Services."


A search screen will open that will allow you to check out a variety of Hotmail related support topics.


At the bottom of that screen, choose "get more help" and then "support."

A support form will open for you to complete and submit to the Hotmail team.


You will receive an answer within 24 hours.

Note that you will need a second email account that you can access so that the Hotmail support staff can send you your answer.

My office blocks facebook & youtube


When navigating the Web through a network with filtering software or hardware established, you will find yourself unable to access a variety of websites. Generally, Internet users faced with these restrictions use a proxy site to bypass the blocks on their networks and access restricted websites. However, this is not the only viable way to approach this situation. If you want to unblock websites on your network without using a proxy, you may use a virtual private network (VPN), which works as a gateway.

Instructions

1.Browse to the VPNGates website to unblock restricted websites on your network without the need for a proxy. The server provided by VPNGates reflects an unrelated IP address to ensure your security while you browse the Web anonymously with uncensored and unrestricted access to all websites. Additional features include unlimited bandwidth, security in unsecured locations like cafes and universities as well as online TV and instant messaging access. VPNGates offers users monthly, quarterly, semiannual and annual account choices. To view the pricing or set up an account, scroll down to the middle of the VPNGates website (see Resources).

2.Operate the RoadWarriorVPN service on your operating system to unblock websites through its virtual private network. This VPN server includes secured, encrypted Internet access as well as unlimited bandwidth. RoadWarriorVPN offers account options for one month, six months or one year. The RoadWarriorVPN accounts include a 24-hour refund policy, so if for any reason you aren't 100 percent satisfied, you may request a refund during cancellation through the "Self Service" tab at the top, left corner of the page (see Resources).

3.Navigate to the StrongVPN website and use its virtual private network as a gateway to unblock any restricted content on your network. Strong VPN provides a neutral IP address that enables anonymous and unrestricted web browsing privileges to all websites. Additional features include fast network connection, no bandwidth charges and live technical quality support 24 hours a day every day of the week. StrongVPN offers monthly or yearly accounts as well as yearly specials (see Resources).

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks

I have a new iMac, just installed Net Nanny, and now all the user accounts that are monitored will not access secure servers. The two admin users have no problems. Does anyone know why this might happen?


NetNanny prevents monitored users from accessing secure (https) sites. If you wish to turn this off follow this excerpt from the long, winding NetNanny FAQ:

How do I stop getting blocked for HTTPS?

Login to Net Nanny and click on Web and then on Advanced and uncheck the box next to Block Secure Web Sites.
Hope that helped!

Hi, Have you checked your security permissions on the 2003 IIS ?

Are the users using it as Intranet or Internet?

Is the site internal/external or possibly firewalled with rules restricting correct port operation and access permissions?
