Why do we use WIFI Hotspot

Who uses wifi hotspot :

People who have more than one device to use simultaneously but only one cable connection plus they don’t wanna buy wireless router

Using wifi hotspot you can share internet connections between many devices. Where hotspot’s installed it’s wireless card must be switched on. And when you turn on wifi hotspot your internet speed will be divided among those devices. Say your net speed is 2 mbps when you turn on wifi hotspot and also use your mobile/laptop to browse internet your speed will become 1 mbps (1mbps on pc and 1 mbps on mobile/laptop). Use WPA2 encryption to protect your wifi and try a strong password that does not match with your wifi network name. Hope you got your answer.

How to Use Windows Disk Cleanup tool

Windows includes a built-in tool that deletes temporary files and other unimportant data. To access it, right-click one of your hard drives in the Computer window and select Properties. Click the Disk Cleanup button in the disk properties window.

(Alternatively you can just search for Disk Cleanup in the Start Menu.)

Select the types of files you want to delete and click OK. This includes temporary files, log files, files in your recycle bin, and other unimportant files.

You can also clean up system files, which don’t appear in the list here. Click the Clean up system files button if you also want to delete system files.

After you do, you can click the More Options button and use the Clean up button under System Restore and Shadow Copies to delete system restore data. This button deletes all but the most recent restore point, so ensure your computer is working properly before using it – you won’t be able to use older system restore points.



How to turn off Registry Cleaner on Wise Care 365

There are two methods, and both will bring to the same result:
1) Open wise care 365, in the pc checkup section click “Checkup”, wait till it finishes, DON’T click “Fix”, click “invalid registry entries”, move our mouse on the first row, you’ll see appear “Ignore” (on the right): click it and do the same for all the other rows.
2) Open wise care 365, click “menu”, click “settings”, click “custom checkup”, click “invalid registry entries”, deselect/untick/uncheck all the options under it, click save.
When you’ll use PC checkup, the registry cleaner function will be ignored.
If you intend the “registry cleaner” in the system cleaner section:
click “Custom area”, click “select none”, click at least an item (for example “ie url history” or the one you prefer), click “ok”.
The registry cleaner won’t be totally turned off, because WiseCleaner team developed it in this way, but wise care 365 will check only one item, if you go accidentally to that section.

How safe are your passwords?

Celebrate World Password Day today by sharing some of your password tips! Every year, security researchers reveal what the worst passwords that have been leaked online.  Bad passwords that appeared in the top 25 for 2015 include “starwars,” “solo” and “princess” as well as the usual  “password”, “123456”, and “qwerty.”

Did you know that security experts estimate that 90% of passwords are susceptible to hacking? Not even the most strongest and secure of passwords cannot guarantee protection against hackers.

Bruce Snell, Technical Director at Intel Security, said that the problem is that many companies do not encrypt the passwords they store online, which leaves them vulnerable to hacks. Companies such as Sony and Target recently were in the spotlight for their poor encryption methods, and many other companies have been through similar instances.

Using encryption can make a huge impact to your personal security, which Snell disclosing that a very simple encryption algorithm would take a hacker many years to try and unravel. Here are some handy password hints to keep you protected. Billy Austin, Vice President of Security at LOGICnow, suggests that you:

  1. Use a Password Manager to make up and store passwords. Password Managers help employees generate sophisticated & unique passwords for each login.
  2. Make sure to change all your default passwords i.e. changing the username from ‘Admin’ and password from ‘Password’.
  3. Remove all account IDs and Passwords from ex-employees to prevent unauthorised access.

In addition, Wise Care 365 can protect your internet security and privacy.

Do I need antivirus other than Windows defender?

I use Windows Defender and at times do the free system checkups though the microsoft website, after all Microsoft made windows so Defender is designed for this purpose, there is no need whatsoever to get free or paid antivirus, hackers feed on virus protectors to worm their way around their protection, while Microsoft do day to day maintenance and you can update daily or get notified automatically.

I used anti virus software in the past such as PC Tool, don’t get me wrong I was in love with this program, did everything I wanted, so I work from home and do reviews promotions and a million other online work I am always online, PC Tool now owned by Nortons I believe was awesome but over time rubbish got through and got to certain system files, this goes with Nortons and a few others I tried, so I use Defender, haven’t had any dramas whatsoever…

Just make sure you know what sites your visiting and what pop ups mean if you clicked or didn’t click on something, some pop ups can be convincing, such as we found suspicious activity and will show your pc details and location to entice you more to accept and download, then hackers have got you..

At the end of the day there is and will never be the one antivirus program to use there will always be something to get around it, hence why there are constant updates new version, new utilities. The pentagon uses the most advance scanners in the world that will never be on the market yet they change this every few minutes…

So Defender is all you need, after all Microsoft created windows so why not use Mircrosofts program, its free and always will be.

How to back up files in Windows using an external drive?

We explain the basics of backing up your files and why you shouldn’t simply back up to your PC’s hard drive.
QUESTION: What’s the difference between using “Back up or restore your Files” in Windows 7 and buying a portable hard dive featured in your website like Seagate or Western digital?
What is the point in buying a portable hard drive if one can back up everything for free using Windows backup as described in this link?
HELPROOM ANSWER: Backing up your files using the above method is a good way of preserving an additional copy of your important files. But, although this will provide protection against accidental deletion, it offers no protection against other common causes of data loss such as hard drive failure or theft of your entire PC.
The Notes section of the page to which you have linked, provides a clue to the answer: “We recommend that you don’t back up your files to the same hard drive that Windows is installed on”
If you make a backup copy of your data onto the same hard drive as the original files, consider what happens when that hard drive breaks down – both the original and the backup copy will be lost and you will have no way of recovering your data.
Backing up your files on to an external hard drive means that, when your PC’s hard drive fails, you can buy a new one and then restore all of your carefully backed up data from the external drive.
If you keep your external hard drive away from your PC, then there’s a good chance that if your PC were to be stolen, the external hard drive might be left behind. This means you would be able to restore your data onto a new PC. Microsoft recommends a “fireproof location separate from your computer” – leaving a second copy with a friend or neighbour would be even more secure.
A more convenient way to back up your data offsite, would be to use one of the many available cloud storage services.
This method automatically backs up your data to secure online servers and gives you the added benefit of being able to access your data from anywhere in the World. Most of the time you can also access your files on the move via smartphones and other mobile devices.
Backing up your files via the Internet does take much longer and costs will depend on the volume of data you need to back up.
There are however many ways to back up data online free of charge. For example, if you sign up to Microsoft’s SkyDrive service you will get 7GB of free storage space. Microsoft suggest that this is enough to store around 20,000 Office documents or 7,000 photos.
