Things to know about phishing…

Phishing is like fishing personal details…

Phishing is a new way of getting personal information through fake pages which is most similar to the original page. The victim will enter his/her personal information on the fake page and will end up in big loss like identity theft money loss etc.

How to identify Phishing pages?

There are several ways to identify the fake pages.

1. First and for most is to upgrade your browser to the latest one which the service provider offers. Internet Explorer version 7 has the in built capacity to identify the fake page. If you happened to logging to a fake page, the browser will give you a warning message stating that it may be a phishing attempt.

2. Look into the address bar properly.If you check your address bar you will come to know whether it is a fake page or an original page. Fake page will not have the correct site address that you tried to log in. The fake pages are normally hosted from a free site hosting pages which will be mentioned in the address bar. But little more advanced hackers will host a website which has the address similar to the targeted site. So it is always better to type in the address of the site to which you have to take a look.

3. Don’t follow the links which is in an Email.You should never follow a link in an Email send to you. Always remember that hackers use email as a medium to carry their fake pages to their victims. You may find some wonderful offer from your bank or from your Email provider. Never click the link that contained in that email. Because we may not know, if it is a fake page. If you are interested in the add type the address of the site in the address bar and navigate through your site to see if an offer is made by them. If yes apply for that with confident.

4. Don’t provide personal information.Never provide your personal information in any of the social networking sites. Hackers normally target those sites to collect the contact of their victims.

So beware of phishers and be safe always…

Fixing Registry?, Here are the tips!

If you are forced to fix registry errors (nobody does it by choice) and you have questions about what to look for in an effective product and the steps to completing the repair, this article will shed some light on the issue.

If you have questions running through your mind like: Will the software I choose do the job right? Am I getting the best product for the price? What features should a good product have? Can I get the support I need? Is the software too complicated? Is the software making up errors during the free scan to get me to purchase?

Each of the above questions raises real concerns when you are trying to narrow your choices of products to trust. There are so many products and biased reviews and the average person experiences stress just thinking about the decision to be made. It does not need to be a chore for you.

If you are just ready to take control of the issue and fix the errors right now, the one product we reviewed that stands out compared to the others is called Registry Easy. The number of features and the effectiveness for the price cannot be beat.

Step One: Ensure that the Registry is The Problem

The good news is that the registry needs maintaining over time anyway, so you cannot lose by downloading software now. If you are concerned whether or not registry software is a worthwhile investment, my opinion is definitely yes. Whether you are trying to fix registry errors or only trying to keep the registry running efficiently, it is worth keeping software on your PC to use throughout the year.

If you need to fix registry errors but want to ensure that the registry is indeed the problem, the following symptoms are common to needing registry repair: your computer is slow or has delayed response times, you are having problems adding or removing programs, rebooting is becoming common practice, or you have tried virus or spyware scans and repairs and the problems still exist. Additional symptoms may include the computer freezing or crashing, getting the Blue Screen of Death (blue screen with white writing), or you are having challenges launching software programs on your PC.

Step Two: Download and Initiate a Free Scan

One nice feature of most software products of this type is that you can download and use the scanning features for free before having to pay to fix the registry errors. You can also download multiple programs to see how the scanning results vary before choosing one to repair the computer with. You can choose one and pay to fix the problem after comparing.

Also make sure that you understand each of the scan and optimization features. The good programs have a full explanation included about what each feature does. Look for an automatic backup of files, optimization to registry and Internet Explorer, good support files, evidence and junk file cleaners, and the ease of use of the software and scan processes.

Step Three: Invest the Money and Get the Errors Fixed

If errors are discovered by the free scan, you can either try another or you can just get the problem fixed and pay for the repair element of the software.

The repair function of the software is the easiest part of the entire repair process. The download and the scan take the longest and then once you purchase the repair element of the product, the errors are fixed in just seconds.

Step Four: Restart Computer and Ensure Changes Applied

Once you fix registry errors, restart your computer to allow the changes to be saved. You should see a huge difference in the reboot and the operational efficiency of your PC once your computer starts up.

It can be a good idea to also run the scan again to ensure that the software repaired the problems the first time around. You can even use other free downloads to see if any additional errors are detected.

Once you fix registry errors, the process isn’t over. Be sure to use the software at least once a week or so to maintain the results that you just accomplished. The registry is constantly getting bloated and maintenance is always a great idea. The good programs will give you a one year license of the software for the price. Others give a discount for multiple computers on the license.

Fix Registry in Just Three Steps!!!

Have you just began the journey of having to fix registry errors and are trying to figure out the best way to accomplish this goal? There are so many product choices, registry reviews on the net, and no guarantees that the registry is even your problem to start with. The following three steps will guide you to fix registry problems in a few short minutes.

Step One: Ensure that the Registry is Actually Your Problem If you have already run a virus and spyware scan (as well as malware and adware) and your problem still exists, there is a good chance that the issue can be your registry. The following symptoms are common to the need for registry repair: Your computer freezes (or crashes and is slow), programs are slow to load (if they can be loaded at all), you cannot add or remove programs from your PC, there is a delay in response time, you are having to constantly reboot your computer, or you are getting the Blue Screen of Death (which is blue with white letters). If you are experiencing a good portion of the problems outlined above, the chances are good that you will need to fix registry problems to be running smooth again.

Step Two: Find a Quality Registry Product and Conduct a Free Scan The next step is to locate a product that can repair the issue for you on the first attempt and that contains as many features as you can get for your money. Quality products offer a free scan feature before you have to pay for the repair function imbedded in the software. You can then make sure that your challenges are in the registry before spending your hard-earned money on software that will not help you.

If you are a person who just likes the problem fixed without tons of research and want a product that will give you a good amount of repair and optimization features for the price, Registry Easy was our pick of the top six registry products we reviewed. For information or a free scan of Registry Easy, see Read further if you would like further steps to assist you.

When you are researching reviews, make sure that the sites you visit have multiple products reviewed and use the same criteria to judge all products on the site. Also make sure that the registry reviews are extremely detailed and offer screen shots of each stage of the review process. This way you can determine how easy the software will be for you to understand and use. Screen shots also prove that the reviewer has actually used the products that he or she is reviewing.

Most products out there are designed to remove critical errors, so the majority will do a decent job. The difference is in the number of optimization, scan, and repair choices for the money. There are some products that are better than others when it comes to this.Step Three: If Errors Exist, Proceed with Paying for the Repair Function of the Software The software that you used for the free scan should have a detailed list of errors and what category of the registry the errors exist in.

Three: If you have discovered errors from the scan, you will want to go ahead and fix the problem. The good news is that the repair portion of the process takes only seconds. The download and free scan take the longest. If the software does it job, the repair should kill all corrupt files on the first try. After the repair is complete, be sure to restart your computer to ensure that the repair worked and that the system saved the changes. Your computer should be running efficiently again and you should see drastic improvements in just minutes. If you are unclear about which product you should use to fix registry problems, see for complete reviews on six best registry cleaner products.

Setting Up A Blog??? Here Is The Help!!!

A blog is a term that is short for weblog. A weblog is kind of like an online journal in which you frequently update with valuable content that you believe will benefit your readers. A blog usually takes on the personality of its author, which can prove to be a valuable aspect for developing relationships with your readers. If they like your content, they probably like you and at some point may become very interested in your business and/or product.

A blogger is the individual who runs and operates a blog and blogging is then defined as the action of consistently writing posts for a blog.

Setting up your own blog adds a great deal of credibility to you and your business. If you are going to run your network marketing business online, you must have an online presence.

Here are some common characteristics of a blog:

1. A post (the written piece of information) usually has a heading, much like you would find in a newspaper article. When writing your heading, you will want to take great advantage of the keywords you are going for to get good search engine optimization.

2. A post contains a body or subject of information. This is where you express your thoughts and ideas. My blog contains the articles I submit to various submission sites. Your blog could also contain videos or even photos or artwork. The sky is the limit.

3. Most blogs will provide the capability of having someone comment on your post. This is where you can really begin a relationship with someone based on your like ability and trust.

Finally, I'd like to leave you with 3 benefits of blogging:

1. A blog helps you gain recognition. Blogging will give you a broader base for finding people and put your thoughts across the world.

2. A blog could eventually lead to sales. If you are a business man/women, you can blog about your products or services. The Internet gives the online network marketer the world. That's a pretty good list!

3. Search engines like blogs because they are regularly updated. As a result, the more you pay attention to your blog, the more business you can create.

This was just a little appetizer on blogging. But hopefully it was enough for you to want to find out more.

All the Best! To Your Success!

A Guide To Recover Lost Files on Your Computer

Computers are a blessing, until you get the infamous blue screen of death, or perhaps less dramatic, you accidentally erase a file. In many cases of deleted files, the file can be retrieved.

If you recently deleted the file, look through the Recycle Bin (or Trash for Macintosh users). In the Recycle Bin you can browse through a list of deleted items, or search for a specific item. Restoring the file from the Recycle Bin is simple. You can restore it directly from the Recycle Bin, move the file to the desktop for restoration, or open the file and resave it.

If the Recycle Bin or Trash does not have your file, look throughout the computer for a back up. The back up could have been manually created by you, or automatically created by your computer. If you are in a network, look through the server's files for your missing file. If you find a backup, be thankful and resave the file.

If at this point you still have not been able to find the file, you will likely need to start spending some money. Be sure to consider how much time and money the lost file is worth. If it is not much, now would be a good time to cut your losses and recreate the file. If the file was one of a kind, not redo able, find a file recovery system program or hire a human recovery specialist. These specialists understand the ways of a computer and where it puts things; but will not be inexpensive.

If you lost your entire hard drive (this may or may not have activated the blue screen of death), first take a deep breathe and let it out. Secondly, use the disk repair program included with Microsoft and Macintosh software. If the software disk does not help, move onto a disk repair program purchased from another company. Your last choice is to have a specialist come in, or bring the hard drive in to try and recover as much information as possible. This option will be costly with no guarantee of success. Once you go through this process once, there is the guarantee that you will not want to do it again.

To avoid losing every file you have made, back up every file you have made to a location other than the hard drive. Disks, USBs, CDs or servers are all good options. After each major change to your file, remember to save the file to both, or all, locations.

When installing a file recovery program, use the program from its installation device to avoid accidentally rewriting any of your files. Lastly, try to install this program before you have lost files. The likelihood of recovering lost files greatly increases if the program is installed ahead of time.

How To Write The Perfect Love Poem

It is easy to express your true feelings and thoughts in free-verse rather than rhyme. You don't need to be a Shelley or Shakespeare to write a great poem. All it takes is sincerity, a little effort and a loving feeling.


Write a page of standard prose, as fast as you can, about how you felt the first time you saw your loved one, how you felt the first time you knew you were in love, and how you feel right now about being together. These three moments in time will create the structure of your poem.
Replace any weak verbs with stronger verbs and any pronouns with proper nouns. Words depicting taste, touch, sight, smell and sound work really well for love poems.

Reread your passage and pick a central metaphor to tie the three moments together. Choosing a metaphor is the most challenging part, but don't hesitate to be wild with it. An opening flower is a tried and true metaphor for love, but a slow-motion explosion in reverse or a baby's first step might work even better.

Rewrite your passage using the metaphor to describe the three moments.
Read your page out loud, changing anything that sounds off to you. Make notations where you feel there's even the slightest pause in the flow of writing.

Write the poem on paper, putting a line break where you made the notations.

Type the poem neatly or write it in your best handwriting. Consider framing your poem. Your loved one may want to keep the poem as a memento!

Read the poem out loud to the person you love, or wrap it in special wrap, and present it as a gift for her or him to open when alone.


You're not trying to write the 'Greatest Poem Ever'. Your poem is for the one you cherish the most. What matters is that it's personal and sensuous.

Sit in a quiet room, and think about your 'love', how you feel when you are together, and apart. Think about what you miss most when you do not see each other, and how you feel when you again see each other. As you ponder this, write your thoughts and feelings. Poetry should come from the heart, and your heart and your thoughts will create a love poem based on you and only yours feelings.

There's no need to be intimidated by complex rhyme schemes. Remember, most contemporary poetry doesn't rhyme. Former Poets Laureate Robert Pinsky and Louise Gluck and current Poet Laureate Ted Kooser all write poetry that does not rhyme.

The best writing advice is simple: omit needless words. One strong verb steamrolls any three weak ones.

Poetry and almost all artful prose is about how the words reveal your feelings. Take time when you read your writing out loud to yourself, and see if you feel what your words are saying. If they stir up emotion within you, be assured they will do the same for the person you are writing it for.

Make it personal. Don't fill it with cliches but find something unique or special in your relationship and write about that. Your poem should be a reflection of the love you both share.
One useful tip for any kind of poem is to write it twice: first with the heart, then with your brain. Don't forget to express exactly what you want, but try not to sound cheesy.

11 Cell Phone Safety Tips to Minimize Radiation Exposure

"The voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones... [is] the largest human biological experiment ever."
~ Professor Leif Salford, Head of Research at Lund University, Sweden

The BIG Question! Are we on the verge of a health crisis of epidemic proportions due to lack of cell phone protection?

Scientists and Doctors agree that this emerging time of wireless technology is wreaking havoc on our health as a nation and a world. An estimated 30-50,000 cases annually worldwide, of brain and eye cancer are being attributed to cell phone use. WiFi is now also under scrutiny. Dr. George Carlo, former chief scientist of the cell phone industry's $28 million safety research project, predicts 500,000 new cases of brain and eye cancer each year by 2010 attributable to cell phone use.

What are the risks involved with wireless technologies?
You, your family, children and pets are all at significant risk. Children are of particularly high risk due to their thin and still forming skulls and nervous systems.

"Brain Tumors Now Cause More Deaths Among Children than Any Other Forms of Cancer." According to a Sydney TV News Report. You can also watch a special video report, "The Invisible Dangers of EMF Radiation".

Recent studies reveal that cell phone use and WiFi technology are linked to health problems. Invisible radiation from cell phones, microwaves, computers, cordless phones, electrical wiring in homes and office buildings and more are all contributors to health problems such as: neck and shoulder pain, headaches, brain tumors, high blood pressure, cancer, brain and eye tumors, Alzheimer's, and more.

It can take years for many of these dis-eases to occur due to the latency period, however the effects are cumulative. It is better to be safe than sorry. This biological experiment has gone too far and it's up to you and me to take responsibility for our own health and the wellbeing of our family members.

11 Cell Phone Protection Tips to Minimize Radiation Exposure:

1. Minimize cell phone use by keeping calls short and only using for essential calls. Just 2 minutes on a cell phone call has been shown to alter the natural electrical activity of the brain for up to an hour.

2. Use a speaker on your cell phone if possible. Keeping the phone away from the body and head helps minimize exposure to radiation.

3. Limit use of cell phones by children to emergency only. Due to their thin skull and developing body's, radiation can penetrate much more deeply.

4. Avoid wired headsets. Regular wired headsets have been shown to act as an antenna, attracting additional EMFs (Electro-Magnetic Fields) or radiation and concentrating it in the ear canal.

5. Keep your cell phone out of your pocket and off your belt when on or in use. Body tissue in the lower body area absorbs radiation more quickly than the head. One study shows that men who wear cell phones near their groin are at risk of reduced sperm count by up to 30 percent.

6. Avoid using the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces. Vehicles and elevators may require the device to work harder in establishing a connection. The metal also acts as a Faraday cage, trapping the radiation and reflecting it back upon the occupants.

7. Wait for the call to connect before placing phone next to the ear. More radiation is present during the connection time.

8. Avoid using the phone if the signal strength is down to one bar or less. This means the phone must work harder to establish a connection.

9. When purchasing a cell phone, choose one with low SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). The SAR level is listed in most phone instruction manuals. SAR is a way of measuring the quantity of radiofrequency (RF) energy absorbed by the body. A lower number equals less absorption. However, studies reveal that RF hundreds of times lower than current SAR limits still show biological effects.

10. Take antioxidant nutritional supplements. Free radicals in the body have been shown to create accelerated wear and tear, aging and degeneration. Cell phone and microwave radiation have been shown to decrease levels of these antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants such as Coenzyme Q10, Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), vitamin C, Picnoginal, Melatonin and others are protective agents against internal and external environmental stressors.

11. Utilize the Cell Phone Protection of a Scientifically Validated EMF Guard Device. Cell phone and microwave radiation and electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) deplete your bioenergy field and immune system. Since most people can not imagine living without a cell phone, the best option is to utilize an advanced technology now available, which significantly strengthens your bioenergy field and guards the body from the cumulative effects of repeated EMF exposure. EMFs weaken the body's ability to repair itself. Since radiation and EMFs are extremely prevailent, even when not using a cell phone, additional protection devices have been made for people, pets and home or office wiring. Some industry experts predict that we are on the verge of a health crisis that could cripple our current health care infrastructure. Now is the time to protect yourself and family.

The damaging effects of EMFs, cell phone radiation and wireless radiation pose an extreme public health risk. Don't wait for the cumulative effects of this highly detrimental force to become fully realized in your life. Take action and protect yourself and your family. Some industry experts predict that we are on the verge of a health crisis that could cripple our current health care infrastructure.

* We now experience 100 million times more EMF exposure than our grandparents
* 40% increase in brain tumors in last 20 years in Australia
* Autism in children increased 30-fold
* 21% increase in brain tumors in children
* 25% increase in brain cancer worldwide

Yoga: The Best Way to Manage Your Stress

Stress can grow to high levels and slowly devour your health bit by bit. Many young people are nowadays a victim of this damaging condition. People belonging to all major occupations are going through stress of various kinds in their life. In this article, we will be looking into what exactly causes stress and how you can cure it naturally through the use of Yoga. However, before we hit upon the subject of dealing with stress with yoga, it's important to clearly understand what exactly stress is and how it impacts our life.

Stress is nothing but a mental pressure created due to excessive work or fatigue of any kind. Another major cause for stress is by thinking heavily about the past, present or future or even worrying about work. For example, a businessman who exports his products to different countries might go through a number of ups and downs in business, many of which are short lived. However, this leads him to develop a large amount of stress that can eventually lead to severe problems to his mental health.

In today's world, we go through stress in every part of our life, whether it's offices, schools, colleges or any place where there is a pressure to perform and give results. Students tend to face stress during exam times, 9-5 workers face the stress because of the pending work that needs to be done on time etc. This generally results in people consuming medications such as narcotics, sedatives and tranquilizers (which cure anxiety). Such medicines may calm the mind of a person but when taken on a long-term basis, they can give rise to other serious maladies.

Given all this, there is still a way to naturally combat stress and can be called a lethal weapon against this disorder - yes, I'm talking about yoga. Yoga is the ancient practice that can give you good health and help you rejuvenate your inner self to a high extent. It has been practiced over time by many experienced yogis in ancient India and now has turned out to be a major health revolution in the modern age.

Coming back to stress management, yoga gives you a unique way to manage stress through the use of controlled breathing, which is called Prayanama. During this technique a person breathes in a slow and steady manner, like inhaling through one of this nostrils and exhaling through the other. Besides this, there are also fast paced breathing techniques, like inhaling air via the nostrils and exhaling it through the mouth. Doing this makes sure that the air is passed through the blood capillaries properly and the practitioner himself feels lighter, meaning he or she feels that there is absolutely no burden on their soul or mind.

Finally, Yoga has proved to be the best stress management tool that's natural without any side effects. The western world is adopting it fast for a reason and that is getting the most of your inner self, while avoiding the use of offensive allopathic drugs that do long term damage. Make a wise decision today, and start on your road to a better, healthier well-being.

What's next for Microsoft?

In the past few weeks there has been speculation that Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 7 OS completely new from scratch. Microsoft has rejected these claims.

It seems they are heading in a different direction. While keeping Windows 7 on the old platform they are working on another project called “Midori". Sources say it's in “incubation," which means it's on a fast track to being turned into a product.

Does this mean that “Midori" will replace the Windows platform any time soon? No. If and when Microsoft does make this project into a commercial product, it will run parallel or alongside Windows for several years.

Why? Well looking back at history, in 1993 Microsoft came out with Windows NT. NT was abbreviated from New Technology and for almost for a decade Microsoft built and ran the consumer OS and business OS (Windows NT) in parallel. In 2001 when Windows XP was launched the old line (consumer OS) was stopped and the “New Technology" was made mainstream for all Windows users.

It took a while before Windows NT was considered acceptable for desktop use and it took even longer before Windows 2000 achieved widespread acceptance by users. In that time Microsoft kept on shipping millions of Windows licenses using its “old technology" OS.

So Midori has the potential to coexist alongside Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7 for at least 5 years. Just like with NT there will be customers willing to use the new OS for specialized reasons such as a powerful workstation or personalized hub for home entertainment.

It is unlikely that the new platform will achieve any critical mass until the early adopters have used it for years and identified the shortfalls. It is also unlikely that retailers will want to accept the burden of selling and supporting a completely new platform until early adopters give it the seal of approval.

Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation.

A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.

Viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it.

Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.

Viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.

To help avoid viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments.

Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection.
