Are You Putting Off Productivity?


I recently took a good look at what was keeping me from accomplishing what I needed to do. After all, I had my goals. I had them written down. I read my affirmations daily. And still, I was not achieving what I wanted to do.

Protect Your PC from Viruses, Worms & Trojans


Each of the items in the checklist below is part of a broad and easy to implement security policy.

Windows Task Manager in English


You use Ctrl+Alt+Del to see what?s running on your PC, to close crashed programs and processes, and to check performance. You probably avoid a few processes whose names mean nothing to you, but they?re essential to Windows. svchost.exe sure likes to appear all the time and multiple times at that. What?s taskmgr.exe? Oh yeah, it?s the window you?re looking at right now. ctfmon? Is he related to Pokemon? navapsvc.exe? Navy? Napa Valley? Navel? NOTA (none of the above).

How To Search Your PC With Google Desktop


In this era of Internet, most people are frequent users of computers. Many of us use computers through out the day, accumulating morasses of information in various formats, which include email, digital photo, word document, spreadsheet, presentation file, ebook, article, other downloaded files, music, visited web pages, and many others. We stuff them in multiple folders in our PC. Before we know it, our hard drives become a storeroom of misplaced items. As a result, finding a needed file of information some times become a daunting task!

A Peek Into the Near Future of Electronics Technology


How long do you think DVDs have around? 20 years? 10 years? Actually, they have only been around for about seven years, but it seems like they have been around much longer. Many of us can hardly remember life before DVDs. That can be attributed to how rapidly we can become acclimated to some innovations in electronics technology. I believe there are other electronics technologies, either just getting ready to take off, not widely available yet, or just around the corner, that are going to become adopted just as quickly in the near future.

Toshiba Wins Hollywood Support for the HD DVD format


What led them to this choice, as all four studios stated separately, is better performance for the price and copyright protection.

The Many Benefits of Owning a DVR


Has This Ever Happened To You? OK.. it's Friday night, the kids are asleep, and a movie you've been waiting for is on Pay-Per-View for the first time. You buy the movie, grab a bag of popcorn, get all comfy on the couch, and ten minutes into the movie "RINGGGG" it's the _______ phone!!! (you fill in the blank).

Buying a Home Theater Receiver


Buying a receiver is one of the most important decisions you're going to have to make when building your home theater. The receiver has a number of functions including; connecting and switching audio sources; connecting and switching video sources; decoding surround sound formats; amplifying an audio signal and sending it to your speakers; tuning in to radio stations; and acting as the interface between you and your home theater.

Passwords and the Human Factor


Passwords have a strange dual nature. The stronger and safer the password the more likely it will be undermined by human weakness.

Looking For an MP3 Player?


If you don?t have an mp3 player, and even if you do, you should check out all the new stuff that?s going on. I?m hoping this article will give you some idea of what kind of mp3 player you want and some tips on what to look for in an mp3 player.

Computer Geeks and Garden Gnomes


First and foremost before I begin my ranting it is worth mentioning that there are many very helpful and considerate people out there in the cyber wilderness who devote much of their time to providing open source and free scripts of all variations from PHP, CGI and Java to name but a few. They provide dedicated support, do not insist on payment, and spend much of their free time helping you avoid having to part with your hard earned cash to get free programs and scripts up and running on your websites.

How To Safeguard Your Computer?


The following practice, if done regularly, may help you to safeguard your computer to some extent.

Password Nightmares


Good Morning Mr. Sampson. Please type in you Personal Identification Number

Are You Well Protected?


Winter?the official start of the cold and flu season. Though, technically speaking, things got started a little early. Close to a million computers, mostly home PC users, have been infected.

Basic Problem in a PC


I have a p3 500MHz PC with 128MB RAM, 10.2 GB HDD Sony CD ROM 48x with window ME edition operating system. I have a problem- when I insert my audio cd, it shows the error message: ?window cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have appropriate permission the access the item.? Please tell me the solution of this error how can we configure the Yahoo! Account in outlook express. What is the pop mail and SMTP address of the Yahoo! Mail?
