How to Connect Two Computers using USB

Posted by Binny Monday, November 16, 2009 1 comments

USB Bridge Cable

Connecting Two Computers Using Usb USB, also known as Universal Serial Bus, is one of the most useful computer-related technologies ever developed.
USB is used to connect printers, keyboards, digital cameras and even MP3 players to your computer.
But you can also connect two computers using USB...Want to know how..
Then Here it is.....


  • Turn on both of the computers. Log in to Windows using an account with administrator privileges.

  • Insert one end of the USB bridge cable into a USB slot on one computer, and the other end of the bridge into the second computer.
  • Install the driver software for the USB bridge cable when the computers prompt you to do so. If you do not have driver software for the USB bridge cable, you may be able to download it from the cable manufacturer.
  • Choose to install the USB bridge cable either as a link adapter or a network adapter. If you install it as a link adapter, you will only be able to transfer files back and forth. If you install it as a network adapter, you will have full network functionality.
  • Complete the software installation. Your two computers should now be connected.

 Most of us own more than one email account say for example, one from Gmail, one from Yahoo and one from Hotmail. If you are tired of logging into multiple accounts to check your inbox or to send emails, I have a solution here.
Gmail has an option to integrate multiple email accounts (email addresses) into a single Gmail account. Once you integrate multiple email addresses into your Gmail account, you can use the same account to send emails from different addresses and receive emails for different addresses. Let’s take a simple example
Suppose you have three email addressess (email accounts)
2. ABC@yahoo.com
3. ABC@hotmail.com

You can integrate the emails ABC@yahoo.com and ABC@hotmail.com to ABC@gmail.com and operate all the three accounts from your single gmail account. Here is a step-by-step procedure to do this.
1. Login to your gmail account.

2. Click on Settings at the top right corner.

3. Under Settings, click on Accounts tab.

4. Now you’ll see the first option “Send mail as:

5. Under this option, click on Add another email address you own

6. Now a small new window will pop-up asking you to enter the details of your new email address.

7. Here you can enter any name and any email address. The email address need not belong to gmail only. You can enter your yahoo, hotmail or any other valid email address.

8. A Verification email will be sent to the address that you specify. Once you verify that you own the email address, it will be integrated to your Gmail account.

Now when you compose a new email, you’ll see an option to select from multiple address to send the mail. Also you’ll receive the incoming mails for multiple addresses to a single mailbox. I hope this will benefit you.

Before you leave, I should also tell you one good advantage of this. According to Gmail privacy policy, they will not send the user’s IP address in the outgoing emails. That means when you send an email from your Gmail account , the receiver will not be able to find out your IP address. But you don’t have this advantage in Yahoo or other email providers.

Get Vista Address Bar in XP

Posted by Binny Monday, October 26, 2009 0 comments

I really liked the breadcrumbs system in Vista address bar and wanted to add it in XP .I found a great program using which you can get Vista Breadcrumb’s address bar in Windows XP.
Modding XP to Vista ? Backward Evolution I guess...

This application should be really helpful for those of you that aren't ready to switch to Windows Vista yet, but want to get some of the new features.

Vista has its share of good features..Ah..The Breadcrumbs

What you need -

  1. Windows XP with .Net Framework 2.0 or higher
  2. QT AddressBar
  3. Free time :P

After downloading QTAddressBar,install it by unzipping the files into the location you'd like to keep them, and then double-click on the QTAddressBar.exe file.

The Magic app

As application launches,Select the Install option, and then click the Next button to register the component with Windows.
Install the application

The program may ask you to restart your system or to Log off and then login again. Here is a neat trick. Go to task manager,and restart explorer.exe by ending it first and then running it again by selecting File \ New Task option once you kill the process.This will save you from Log on-Log Off and restart headaches.Actually it just refreshes the explorer shell to check and apply new components.
Once you have restarted the explorer,you can now right-click on the toolbars area and do these two actions:
  1. Deselect Address Bar
  2. Select QT Breadcrumbs Address Bar

Right Click on toolbars and select QR Breadcrumbs Address Bar

 Congrats you have applied the breadcrumbs clone in your Windows XP.

Enjoy Vista Breadcrumbs in full glory in XP :P 


Most of us are familiar with many softwares that run only for a specified period of time in the trial mode.Once the trial period is expired these softwares stop functioning and demand for a purchase.But there is a way to run the softwares and make them function beyond the trial period.Isn’t this interesting?

Before we perforn this trick, we have to understand the functioning of these softwares.I’ll try to explain this in brief.

When these softwares are installed for the first time, they make an entry into the Windows Registry with the details such as Installed Date and Time, installed path etc.After installation every time you run the software, it compares the current system date and time with the installed date and time.So, with this it can make out whether the trial period is expired or not.
So with this being the case, just manually changing the system date to an earlier date will not solve the problem.For this purpose there is a small Tool known as RunAsDate.

RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn’t change the current system date, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.

RunAsDate intercepts the kernel API calls that returns the current date and time (GetSystemTime, GetLocalTime, GetSystemTimeAsFileTime), and replaces the current date/time with the date/time that you specify.It works with Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.

You have to follow these tips carefully to successfully hack a software and make it run in it’s trial mode forever.
1. Note down the date and time, when you install the software for the first time.

2. Once the trial period expires, you must always run the software using RunAsDate.

3. After the trial period is expired, do not run the software(program) directly.If you run the software directly even once, this hack may no longer work.

4. It is better and safe to inject the date of the last day in the trial period.

For example, if the trial period expires on jan 30 2009, always inject the date as jan 29 2009 in the RunAsDate.


Tips N Tricks : How to hide files in jpg image.

Posted by Binny Friday, October 16, 2009 0 comments

 Hiding and storing your files in jpg image is an efficient way of data protection as we all know.This post is to inform and share with everyone over here this method of hiding files in a jpg image. Just follow the steps given below and I am
sure that this trick will work.


1. Must have a .zip or .rar compressor.

1. Save the picture of choice to your desktop.

2. Make a new .rar or .zip folder on your desktop.

3. Add the files you want to hide into the .zip or .rar

4. Click start menu, run, cmd.

5. In Command Prompt type cd "desktop" with the quotation marks.

6. Now type in copy /b picturename.jpg + foldername.rar outputfilename.jpg
( If you use .zip then: copy /b picturename.jpg + foldername.zip outputfilename.jpg)

7. Now there should be the outputed file name with a .jpg extension on the desktop.
( Do not close Command Prompt just yet )

8. Double click it to open the picture and check it out.

9. When your done looking, and want to view the hidden files
Type: ren outputfilename.jpg outputfilename.rar or zip

Mozilla Firefox
is blazingly fast,yet it has been facing stiff competition from Google Chrome in terms of speed.Yes, Firefox is already pretty damn fast but did you know that you can tweak it and improve the speed even more? That's the beauty  of this program being open source

Here's what you do:
In the URL bar, type “about:config” and press enter. This will bring up the configuration “menu” where you can change the parameters of Firefox.

Note that these are what I’ve found to REALLY speed up my Firefox significantly - and these settings seem to be common among everybody else as well. But these settings are optimized for broadband connections - I mean with as much concurrent requests we’re going to open up with pipelining you’d better have a big connection.
Double Click on the following settings and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they’ll change when you double click.
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs – true
network.http.max-connections – 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server – 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy – 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server – 4
network.http.pipelining – true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining – true
network.http.request.timeout – 300

One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a NEW -> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. Since you’re broadband - it shouldn’t have to wait.
Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH faster now!

Usually we have the habit of  using Windows key for popping up the start panel in Window.I felt clunked whenever I hitTried and tested on Ubuntu :) the Windows key (another windows habit of bringing Start Menu) to bring the Ubuntu Panel at the top of screen as nothing happened at that time.

Ubuntu Panel is a dropdown menu which is used to launch applications, which is quite similar to the way Windows has the start menu. However If you are a windows user new to Ubuntu, you might want to have the windows key launch the applications menu. Thankfully this is an easy thing to do in Ubuntu.
Go to the System \ Preferenc \Keyborad Shortcuts menu item:

Scroll down till you see the “Show the panel menu” item,click in the Shortcut column, and when it changes to “New accelerator…”, hit the Windows Key. Close all windows and you’re done!
Now whenever you will hit the windows key (intentionally/unintentionally/for God’s sake :P) , the application menu will pop up and you can navigate into it using the arrow keys.

I Lost My MotherBoard Driver CD/DVD, What To Do ?

Posted by Binny Friday, October 9, 2009 0 comments

Whenever I install Windows I have to search for my motherboard CD for installing drivers of sound, LAN, graphics etc and majority of times it takes hell a lot of time to search for driver CD. At least I find it very difficult to keep my CD in a safe place so that I can use it when I need it.

But what will you do if motherboard driver CD gets lost, I know you will say that you'll go to Internet and download all the desired drivers from there but for that you should know the model number also. If you have lost your motherboard CD and do not know your motherboard model number and want to download or update your drivers, here is a very good application for you.

Yes, you can backup all your installed drivers and can restore it back when needed. Without going to any website you can easily download and install required drivers. Isn't this a useful application !!

Have a quick look at some features of this software :

  • Quickly backup device drivers for your computer.
  • Backup your drivers to a ZIP or EXE self-extracting file.
  • Clone your drivers to an auto-setup package.
  • Wizard mode allow you step by step backup or restore your drivers.

One of the ways by which a virus can infect your PC is through USB/Pen drives. Common viruses such as ’Ravmon’ , ‘New Folder.exe’, ‘Orkut is banned’ etc are spreading through USB drives. Most anti virus programs are unable to detect them and even if they do, in most cases they are unable to delete the file, only quarantine it. Here are the things which you can do if you want to remove such viruses from your USB Drive
Whenever you plug a USB drive in your system, a window will appear similar to the one shown below
Don’t click on Ok , just choose ‘Cancel’. Open the Command Prompt by typing ‘cmd‘ in the run box. In the command prompt type the drive letter: and press enter . Now type dir /w/a and press enter.
This will display a list of the files in the pen drive. Check whether the following files are there or not
  • Autorun.inf
  • Ravmon.exe
  • New Folder.exe
  • svchost.exe
  • Heap41a
  • or any other exe file which may be suspicious.
If any of the above files are there, then probably the USB drive is infected. In command prompt type attrib -r -a -s -h *.* and press enter. This will remove the Read Only, Archive, System and hidden file attribute from all the files. Now just delete the files using the command del filename. example del Ravmon.exe. Delete all the files that are suspicious. To be on a safer side, just scan the USB drive with an anti virus program to check whether it is free of virus or not. Now remove the drive and plug it again. In most of the cases, the real culprit turns out to be the “Autorun.inf” file which mostly gets executed when someone clicks Ok in the dialog window which appears above. Thus the infections can spread
Security Tip
Disable the Autoplay feature of USB drives. If you disable the Autoplay feature of USB drives, then there are lesser chances of the virus spreading. A tool which can perform such a function is Tweak UI. Download it from here install it.
Tweak UI
Run the program. Now you can disable the Autoplay feature of the removable drives as shown above. By following the above steps, you can keep your USB drives clean.

In this post I will tell you about how the domain names are hacked and how they can be protected. The act of hacking domain names is commonly known as Domain Hijacking. For most of you, the term “domain hijacking” may seem to be like an alien. So let me first tell you what domain hijacking is all about.
Domain hijacking is a process by which Internet Domain Names are stolen from it’s legitimate owners. Domain hijacking is also known as domain theft. Before we can proceed to know how to hijack domain names, it is necessary to understand how the domain names operate and how they get associated with a particular web server (website).
The operation of domain name is as follows
Any website say for example gohacking.com consists of two parts. The domain name (gohacking.com) and the web hosting server where the files of the website are actually hosted. In reality, the domain name and the web hosting server (web server) are two different parts and hence they must be integrated before a website can operate successfully. The integration of domain name with the web hosting server is done as follows.
1. After registering a new domain name, we get a control panel where in we can have a full control of the domain.
2. From this domain control panel, we point our domain name to the web server where the website’s files are actually hosted.
For a clear understanding let me take up a small example.
John registers a new domain “abc.com” from an X domain registration company. He also purchases a hosting plan from Y hosting company. He uploads all of his files (.html, .php, javascripts etc.) to his web server (at Y). From the domain control panel (of X) he configures his domain name “abc.com” to point to his web server (of Y). Now whenever an Internet user types “abc.com”, the domain name “abc.com” is resolved to the target web server and the web page is displayed. This is how a website actually works.
What happens when a domain is hijacked
Now let’s see what happens when a domain name is hijacked. To hijack a domain name you just need to get access to the domain control panel and point the domain name to some other web server other than the original one. So to hijack a domain you need not gain access to the target web server.
For example, a hacker gets access to the domain control panel of  “abc.com”. From here the hacker re-configures the domain name to point it to some other web server (Z). Now whenever an Internet user tries to access “abc.com” he is taken to the hacker’s website (Z) and not to John’s original site (Y).
In this case the John’s domain name (abc.com) is said to be hijacked.
How the domain names are hijacked
To hijack a domain name, it’s necessary to gain access to the domain control panel of the target domain. For this you need the following ingredients
1. The domain registrar name for the target domain.
2. The administrative email address associated with the target domain.
These information can be obtained by accessing the WHOIS data of the target domain. To get access the WHOIS data, goto whois.domaintools.com, enter the target domain name and click on Lookup. Once the whois data is loaded, scroll down and you’ll see Whois Record. Under this you’ll get the “Administrative contact email address”.
To get the domain registrar name, look for something like this under the Whois Record. “Registration Service Provided By: XYZ Company”. Here XYZ Company is the domain registrar. In case if you don’t find this, then scroll up and you’ll see ICANN Registrar under the “Registry Data”. In this case, the ICANN registrar is the actual domain registrar.
The administrative email address associated with the domain is the backdoor to hijack the domain name. It is the key to unlock the domain control panel. So to take full control of the domain, the hacker will hack the administrative email associated with it. Email hacking has been discussed in my previous post how to hack an email account.
Once the hacker take full control of this email account, he will visit the domain registrar’s website and click on forgot password in the login page. There he will be asked to enter either the domain name or the administrative email address to initiate the password reset process. Once this is done all the details to reset the password will be sent to the administrative email address. Since the hacker has the access to this email account he can easily reset the password of domain control panel. After resetting the password, he logs into the control panel with the new password and from there he can hijack the domain within minutes.
How to protect the domain name from being hijacked
The best way to protect the domain name is to protect the administrative email account associated with the domain. If you loose this email account, you loose your domain. So refer my previous post on how to protect your email account from being hacked. Another best way to protect your domain is to go for private domain registration. When you register a domain name using the private registration option, all your personal details such as your name, address, phone and administrative email address are hidden from the public. So when a hacker performs a WHOIS lookup for you domain name, he will not be able to find your name, phone and administrative email address. So the private registration provides an extra security and protects your privacy. Private domain registration costs a bit extra amount but is really worth for it’s advantages. Every domain registrar provides an option to go for private registration, so when you purchase a new domain make sure that you select the private registration option.

1.Open command prompt

2. In the command prompt use the “net view” command

Example: C:\>net view \\

The above is an example for operation using command prompt.”net view” is one of the netbios command to view the shared resources of the remote computer.Here “″ is an IP address of remote computer that is to be hacked through Netbios.You have to substitute a vlaid IP address in it’s place.If succeeded a list of HARD-DISK DRIVES & PRINTERS are shown.If not an error message is displayed. So repeat the procedure 2 with a different IP address.

3. After succeeding, use the “net use” command in the command prompt.The “net use” is another netbios command which makes it possible to hack remote drives or printers.
C:\>net use D: \\\F
C:\>net use G: \\\SharedDocs
C:\>net use I: \\\Myprint

NOTE: In Examples 1,2 & 3, D:,G: & I: are the Network Drive Names that are to be created on your computer to access remote computer’s hard-disk.


F:,”SharedDocs” are the names of remote computer’s hard-disk’s drives that you want to hack. “Myprint” is the name of remote computer’s printer.These are displayed after giving “net use” command. “″ is the IP address of remote computer that you want to hack.

4. After succeeding your computer will give a message that “The command completed successfully“. Once you get the above message you are only one step away from hacking the computer.

Now open “My Computer” you will see a new “Hard-Disk drive”(Shared) with the specified name.You can open it and access remote computer’s Hard-Drive.You can copy files,music,folders etc. from victim’s hard-drive.You can delete/modify data on victim’s hard-drive only if WRITE-ACCESS is enabled on victim’s system.You can access files\folders quickly through “Command Prompt”.

NOTE: If Remote Computer’s Firewall Is Enabled Your Computer Will Not Succeed In Gaining Access To Remote Computer Through Netbios.That is Netbios Hacking Is Not Possible In This Situation.(An Error Message Is Displayed).So Repeat The Procedure 2,3 With Different IP Address.


Find the IP address of the sender in Yahoo! mail

Posted by Binny Saturday, October 3, 2009 0 comments

When you receive an email, you receive more than just the message. The email comes with headers that carry important information that can tell where the email was sent from and possibly who sent it. For that, you would need to find the IP address of the sender. The tutorial below can help you find the IP address of the sender. Note that this will not work if the sender uses anonymous proxy servers.

Finding IP address in Yahoo! Mail:

  • Log into your Yahoo! mail with your username and password.
  • Click on Inbox or whichever folder you have stored your mail.
  • Open the mail.
  • If you do not see the headers above the mail message, your headers are   not displayed. 
  • To display the headers,
* Click on Options on the top-right corner
* In the Mail Options page, click on General Preferences
* Scroll down to Messages where you have the Headers option
* Make sure that Show all headers on incoming messages is selected
* Click on the Save button
* Go back to the mails and open that mail.

  •  You should see similar headers like this:Yahoo! headers : nameLook for Received: from followed by the IP address between square brackets [ ]. Here, it is is be the IP address of the sender!
  •  Track the IP address of the sender

Everybody’s favorite open-source browser, Firefox, is great right out of the box. And by adding some of the awesome extensions available out there, the browser just gets better and better.

But look under the hood, and there are a bunch of hidden (and some not-so-secret) tips and tricks available that will crank Firefox up and pimp your browser. Make it faster, cooler, more efficient. Get to be a Jedi master with the following cool Firefox tricks.

1) More screen space. Make your icons small. Go to View - Toolbars - Customize and check the   “Use small icons” box.

2) Smart keywords. If there’s a search you use a lot (let’s say IMDB.com’s people search), this is an awesome tool that not many people use. Right-click on the search box, select “Add a Keyword for this search”, give the keyword a name and an easy-to-type and easy-to-remember shortcut name (let’s say “actor”) and save it. Now, when you want to do an actor search, go to Firefox’s address bar, type “actor” and the name of the actor and press return. Instant search! You can do this with any search box.

3) Keyboard shortcuts. This is where you become a real Jedi. It just takes a little while to learn these, but once you do, your browsing will be super fast. Here are some of the most common (and my personal favs):

* Spacebar (page down)
* Shift-Spacebar (page up)
* Ctrl+F (find)
* Alt-N (find next)
* Ctrl+D (bookmark page)
* Ctrl+T (new tab)
* Ctrl+K (go to search box)
* Ctrl+L (go to address bar)
* Ctrl+= (increase text size)
* Ctrl+- (decrease text size)
* Ctrl-W (close tab)
* F5 (reload)
* Alt-Home (go to home page)

4) Auto-complete. This is another keyboard shortcut, but it’s not commonly known and very    useful. Go to the address bar (Control-L) and type the name of the site without the “www” or the “.com”. Let’s say “google”. Then press Control-Enter, and it will automatically fill in the “www” and the “.com” and take you there - like magic! For .net addresses, press Shift-Enter, and for .org addresses, press Control-Shift-Enter.

5) Tab navigation. Instead of using the mouse to select different tabs that you have open, use the keyboard. Here are the shortcuts:

* Ctrl+Tab (rotate forward among tabs)
* Ctrl+Shft+Tab (rotate to the previous tab)
* Ctrl+1-9 (choose a number to jump to a specific tab)

6) Mouse shortcuts. Sometimes you’re already using your mouse and it’s easier to use a mouse shortcut than to go back to the keyboard. Master these cool ones:

* Middle click on link (opens in new tab)
* Shift-scroll down (previous page)
* Shift-scroll up (next page)
* Ctrl-scroll up (decrease text size)
* Ctrl-scroll down (increase text size)
* Middle click on a tab (closes tab)

7) Delete items from address bar history. Firefox’s ability to automatically show previous URLs you’ve visited, as you type, in the address bar’s drop-down history menu is very cool. But sometimes you just don’t want those URLs to show up (I won’t ask why). Go to the address bar (Ctrl-L), start typing an address, and the drop-down menu will appear with the URLs of pages you’ve visited with those letters in them. Use the down-arrow to go down to an address you want to delete, and press the Delete key to make it disappear.

Cool User chrome. If you really want to trick out your Firefox, you’ll want to create a UserChrome.css file and customize your browser. It’s a bit complicated to get into here, but check out this tutorial.

9) Create a user.js file. Another way to customize Firefox, creating a user.js file can really speed up your browsing. You’ll need to create a text file named user.js in your profile folder (see this to find out where the profile folder is) and see this example user.js file that you can modify. Created by techlifeweb.com, this example explains some of the things you can do in its comments.

10) about
:config. The true power user’s tool, about.config isn’t something to mess with if you don’t know what a setting does. You can get to the main configuration screen by putting about:config in the browser’s address bar. See Mozillazine’s about:config tips and screenshots.

11) Add a keyword for a bookmark. Go to your bookmarks much faster by giving them keywords. Right-click the bookmark and then select Properties. Put a short keyword in the keyword field, save it, and now you can type that keyword in the address bar and it will go to that bookmark.

12) Speed up Firefox. If you have a broadband connection (and most of us do), you can use pipelining to speed up your page loads. This allows Firefox to load multiple things on a page at once, instead of one at a time (by default, it’s optimized for dialup connections). Here’s how:

* Type “about
:config” into the address bar and hit return. Type “network.http” in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
* Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
* Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
* Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a number like 30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at once.
* Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

13) Limit RAM usage. If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us. Again, go to about
:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. It’s set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.

14) Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized. This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go. Again, go to about
:config, right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean. Name it “config.trim_on_minimize” and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

15) Move or remove the close tab button. Do you accidentally click on the close button of Firefox’s tabs? You can move them or remove them, again through about
:config. Edit the preference for “browser.tabs.closeButtons”. Here are the meanings of each value:

* 0: Display a close button on the active tab only
* 1
Default) Display close buttons on all tabs
* 2
on’t display any close buttons
* 3
isplay a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)

Virtual Memory too low Warning Trouble in win xp and vista

Posted by Binny Monday, September 28, 2009 0 comments

When there is less physical memory than needed, then some virtual memory (virtual RAM) is created on the disk. When there is a limit set to the size of virtual memory usage and there is not enough of it present there is a warning that frequently comes “Virtual Memory too low”.

Solution 1 :
This problem occurs when physical RAM + Virtual RAM (usually created on hard disk) together are not sufficient to take care of the currently needed RAM size, or this situation is about to arise. This usually happens when some fixed upper limit for Virtual Memory has been set. To solve this problem, you can either upgrade you physical RAM on your computer (recommended), or you can set the Virtual Memory to system managed size or you can do both. Setting Virtual Memory to system managed size means windows will set it to higher size whenever needed automatically,for this,

Right click on My computer --> goto properties, goto advanced tab, click on performance settings, now click on advanced, now click on advanced, now click on change button for Virtual memory.

On this screen select the System managed size, press OK. After this re-start your computer. This will solve the virtual memory too low problem.

Solution 2:
Recommended solution is to upgrade your physical memory (RAM) according to requirements of the kind of applications that you run on your computer. If you upgrade RAM or not, the following procedure will help prevent this warning by increasing the virtual memory limit.

Right click on My computer icon and click properties.

This will show system properties window. Click on a advanced tab and click on the settings button under heading performance.
This will open performance options window. Click on advanced tab and click on change button under heading virtual memory.
Check if the space available is set to some custom value or double the RAM size ?
If it is not double the RAM memory size , then select the size option set the virtual memory size double the RAM Size and press set button and press OK button.
Restart the computer

Unfortunately, when it comes to your website, the "if you build it, they will come" strategy just doesn't work. Fortunately, there are many ways to drive high-quality traffic to your website for little to no cost. The following 5 strategies will show you how:

1. Optimize your site for the search engines.

You'd have to be a fulltime search engine optimization expert to keep up with all the changes the major search engines make, but there are a few basic things you can do to help your site come up for relevant searches. Here are some to get you started:

a. Define your keywords - this is how people will find your business online. The trick is to find keywords that are highly relevant to what you offer and popular enough that they will attract decent traffic to your site, but not so competitive that you can't rank well using them. Use your keywords in your web page copy.

b. Create your metatags - this is how the search engines "read" your site. Put your keywords in your metatags on each page of your website.

c. Don't use lots of graphics or Flash, frames, or "alt" tags in HTML for pictures - search engines don't like them because it makes it hard for them to "read" your site.

d. Submit your site to the search engines - (see #2).

e. Get links to your site - create a page in your website and call it either resources or links and add GOOD links, meaning relevant links. Linking is the second biggest indicator of how your site is ranked.

2. Submit your site to the search engines.

Why wait for the search engines' robots or spiders to find you? Submit your website (it's best if you submit every page individually) to at least these four major search engines and directories manually. It's easy and only takes a minute.

Submit your web pages to:

Alexa: http://pages.alexa.com/hrlp/webmasters/index.html
Yahoo at http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html
Google at http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl
DMoz at http://www.dmoz.com/add.html

3. Swap ads with other ezines in your niche.

Seek out other ezines in your niche whose publishers might be interested in swapping ads. They can either be formals ads, or just a recommendation within the content of the ezine itself. I've used this strategy myself, with the result being lots of new visitors to my website and new subscribers to my ezine.

4. Be a bonus participant.

You're probably aware of the tactic of adding valuable bonuses to your offerings to encourage people to buy. As a traffic-building technique, you could do the same for someone else's product offering. For example, when Andrea Lee released her second edition of "Multiple Streams of Coaching Income" print book, one of my audio products was offered as a bonus to those who bought the book. I received loads of new visitors to my website and had a nice spike in ezine subscribers as well as a result.

5. Become an "ask the expert" on a high-traffic website in your niche.

Seek out websites that are information portals for your niche, and see if they offer an "ask the expert" section (and if they don't, you could always suggest they do). Offer your services as an expert, to answer questions from their visitors about the challenges they face.

For example, I'm the online marketing expert at www.womans-net.com, and an expert within the Circle of Experts at www.adrpracticebuilder.com and I get targeted traffic from people visiting these sites.

Pls follow the steps given below:

  •  Insert the Kon-Boot CD that you just burned and boot the computer with the CD. You will need to configure the BIOS to start up the computer with CD.
  •  A kryptos login splash screen appears. You’ll need to hit enter to continue or else the screen will stay there.
  •  Kon-Boot will tell you that it is ready to hax0R in. It will check SMAP BIOS entries, detect dummy BIOS, and fix SMAP entries.
  •  Windows will now load as normal.
  • When the Log On to Windows box appear, simply type anything in the password box and you’re in! You can even leave the password field blank.


What's new in Linux Mint 7 Gloria XFCE CE?

Posted by Binny Tuesday, September 22, 2009 0 comments

Based on Xubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, Linux 2.6.28, XFCE 4.6 and Xorg 7.4, Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" XFCE CE features a lot of improvements and the latest software from the Open Source World.

Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" XFCE CE

* XFCE 4.6

Linux Mint 7 Gloria XFCE CE is now using XFCE 4.6. Have a look at the tour for more information.

* mintInstall improvements

Highlights: Featured applications, pre-filled information, seamless screenshots downloads, improved GUI layout. Some of the most popular applications were gathered in a new window named "Featured applications". This window shows the popular applications which are available and not currently installed on the system:

Featured applications in mintInstall
This makes it simpler for you to install most of what people are commonly looking for, all in one go.
The mintInstall frontend now comes pre-filled with all the data required to browse and install software, with the exception of the screenshots. Compared to the older versions of mintInstall this means you don't actually need to refresh the application to be able to use it.
When missing, screenshots are downloaded automatically. Of course, the "Refresh" button can still be used to download all of them at once.

The GUI layout was improved. The main window now shows less information and the once called "Versions" button was replaced with "More info".

mintInstall's main window
This opens a window where you can see the versions, licenses, package names and repositories, but now also the upstream website, a long description, and the size of the packages.

mintInstall's "More Info" window
MintInstall now runs in root mode and doesn't store any information in your home folder anymore.

* mintUpdate improvements

Highlights: Changelogs, package sizes, usability, The changelog tab now supports Linux Mint packages. Previous versions of mintUpdate could only show changelogs for packages maintained by Ubuntu.
mintUpdate now shows the download size associated with each package upgrade.

mintUpdate now shows the download size of each upgrade and supports Linux Mint changelogs.
mintUpdate's system tray icon does not blink anymore. The presence of available updates is still quite noticeable as different icons are being used. The update manager now feels even less intrusive.

* mintUpload improvements

Highlights: Ads-free, GUI improvements, graphical service manager, SCP/SFTP support All ads were removed from the the default service.
The GUI layout was improved in mintUpload to make the application simpler to use and to hide information which wasn't relevant to the selected upload service.

mintUpload's main window
Services can now be created, edited or deleted graphically via a new service manager.

mintUpload's new service manager

Editing a service in mintUpload
Two new protocols are supported by mintUpload: SCP and SFTP.
Credits go to Philip Morrell, Manuel Sandoval, and Dennis Schwertel for their work on the SCP/SFTP support and for their continuous help in improving mintUpload.

* mintWelcome

Linux Mint now comes with the following welcome screen:

mintWelcome pointing new users to a few directions

Command line goodies - apt version, rtfm

You can quickly get the version of an installed package by typing "apt version" followed by the package name. For instance, "apt version firefox" gives you the version number of the firefox package.
RTFM is not an insult anymore, it's now a command. It's a simple link to the "man" command of course and it's nothing special, but if someone ever RTFMs you after you've asked questions on the IRC, don't feel bad about it, just say thank you. This is our way to make fun of the unfortunately well-established RTFM syndrom and we hope, if anything, you find it amusing.

New artwork

The default icon set was replaced with Gnome Colors.
Various upstream improvements in the Murrina engine used by the traditional Linux Mint theme make widgets, and buttons in particular, look better than they did before.
A new theme was included and set as default, based on Shiki Colors and the Mint-Dew wallpaper from Zwopper.

The new Shiki-Mint theme, Shiki-Wise + Mint Dew

Other Changes

  • pyNeighborhood replaced FuseSMBTool and mintDesktop's automount.
  • Transmission BitTorrent Client replaced Deluge. 
  • VLC was removed for space.
  • Tomboy removed for space.
  • aptlinex was installed for the apt urls in Firefox.
  • All the old artwork was removed and will be made into a package.
  • Samba was removed for space.
  • Removed vim for space.

Other improvements

Firefox now comes with the Moonlight plugin and support for Silverlight 1.x.
The Firefox google search engine was enhanced to show links to popular search engines, as well as cached links and similar pages.
The Linux Mint 7 Gloria repositories are now signed.
Changes in the packages organization and the introduction of the mint-info virtual package make it easier to add additional desktops environments and editions on top of other ones. The new package hierarchy also makes it easier to upgrade Linux Mint.
mintSystem now comes with a new adjustment system, which restores important files at boot time. This strengthens the system against Ubuntu package upgrades overwriting Mint's specific configuration. This adjustment system can be configured in /etc/linuxmint/mintSystem.conf.
It is now possible to check the integrity of the liveCD and to boot the installer on its own.
MintAssistant was removed, and the installer now applies the same password to root as the one you choose for the main user.

Xchat now replaces Xchat-Gnome as the default IRC client:

The Xchat IRC client
A new command-line tool called Inxi, was introduced:

Inxi in action
Inxi shows various information about your system. An Inxi report can help a lot when asking questions on the forums or in the IRC as it helps others understand more about your system.

Small improvements:
  • "apt purge" was fixed.
  • "apt source" now runs in user mode.
  • All Mint tools are now launchable from the command line.
  • All Mint tools now detect their environment and adapt to it. In particular they know whether to use gksu or kdesudo. The consequence of this is that packages like mintupdate-gnome or mintupdate-kde are not needed anymore, and the same package is now compatible with all desktop environments.
  • All Mint tools using an about dialog now show their own version number.

Upstream Improvements

Linux Mint 7 Gloria comes with a linux 2.6.28 kernel.
The Ubiquity installer features graphical improvements and support for the ext4 filesystem
