Make Computer faster

Tricks to make Windows faster
1. Run MSconfig. Select Start>Run and type msconfig into the space, press enter. Select the Startup tab and get rid of all unnecessary programs.
2. Locate the hidden temp folder in your computer and delete everything in the folder. This is located, usually, in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\local settings or Select Start>Run and type temp into the space, press enter.
3. For Internet Explorer, click Tools> Internet Options> Security Tab. Click on the Internet Globe icon and select Custom Level. Disable the following:
a. Download Unsigned ActiveX Controls.
b. Initialize And Script ActiveX Controls Not Marked As Safe.
c. Active Scripting.
d. Scripting Of Java Applets.
Also click High Safety under Java Permissions.
If this causes trouble viewing any favorite sites, click the Trusted Sites icon of the Security Tab and use the Sites button to add the URL's of sites that are exempt from these requirements. The purpose of these changes is to tighten the security of your system so that not so many malicious programs make it to your system.
4. Open Regedit by clicking Start>Run and type in regedit.
5. Once Regedit is open, click the plus symbol next to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder, the plus symbol next to Control Panel, and then click the Desktop folder icon to display its contents. In the right pane, double-click MenuShowDelay to change its value. (This Registry location is referred to as HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL\PANEL\DESKTOP\MENUSHOWDELAY.) The default Value Data is 400, or 4/10 of a second. Change the Value Data to 0 for the least delay, and click OK. This will make menus appear instantly on your computer instead of having a delay.
6. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\FILESYSTEM. Right-click Filesystem, select New, and DWORD Value. Rename NewValue#1 on the right-side pane to DisableNTFSLast-AccessUpdate. Double-click this new entry, change the Value Data field from 0 to 1, and then click OK. This disables the constant updating of the dates when a file or folder were last updated. This will speed up the system.
7. Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\EXPLORER. Create a new DWORD Value called DesktopProcess, and set its Value Data to 1.
8. Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, and click Desktop. Double-click the AutoEndTasks string and change the value to 1. This causes all of the components of the explorer to run in one process, making your computer faster.
9. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand SOFTWARE, expand Microsoft, expand Windows, and expand CurrentVersion. Right-click Explorer, expand New, click Key, and name the new key AlwaysUnloadDLL. Click AlwaysUnloadDLL, double-click the Default string, and change the value to 1. Windows tries to keep some DLL's in memory when the program uses them. If a user has low memory, this can cause performance issues.
10. Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, and click Desktop. Double-click the HungAppTimeout string and change the value to 1000. Now, double-click the WaitToKillAppTimeout, string and change the value to 2000. This sets your system up to more efficiently handle application hangups. It also will optimize the amount of time a system takes to close a program when you try to end Windows.
11. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand System, expand CurrentControlSet, and click Control. Double-click the WaitToKillServiceTimeout string and change the value to 2000. This optimizes the time that it will take for Windows Services to close when the system is set to shut down.
12. Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, click Desktop, and double-click the MenuShowDelay string in the right-hand pane. Change the value to 100. This will cause Desktop menus to appear almost instantly. Close regedit.
13. Set Recycle Bin to 1-3 percent of the hard drive space. To do this, right click on the Recycle Bin. Select properties. Move the slider down to the desired amount and click Ok. By default, the Recycle bin takes up too much of your space.
14. To ensure DMA is in use, click Start, right-click My Computer, click Properties, select the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager. Expand the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers entry, double-click the entry for the channel where your hard drive is installed (most likely the Primary IDE Channel), and use the Transfer Mode drop-down menu to select DMA If Available if PIO Only mode is selected. Click Ok, reboot, and recheck the setting to make sure it sticks. When this is enabled, it will allow information from your CD/DVD to go straight to memory, bypassing the system processor and speeding up the system.
15. Delete any spyware programs from your add/remove. To do this, select Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs.

Earn money from Google

With internet growing in size and user growing exponentially it has now reached a stage, where each one of us can earn from it with minimum effort. All we need is a blog (website) with internet connnected computer. With free creation of a blog from www.blogger.com, now any one can earn from internet.
Internet is the biggest cash machine of all. We all can earn money by just blogging, onces experience or sharing once opinion on a topic. With google ready to share their profit with all of us we should convert our free time to blogging time. Once a blog is regularly updated it wont take much time to get you enough money to make a living out of it. And only effort that we will be putting will be blogging some lines daily. So how does it all works just 3 simple steps

2. Sign up for GOOGLE adsense

3. Regularly update blog


So why does google pays you ??

The Google advertisements are displayed on you are site. And to display this on your content pages google pays on basis of:

1. Cost-per-click (CPC)

2. Cost-per-1000-impressions (CPM)

3. For search results pages showing exclusively CPC ads directed from your page.
This means that advertisers pay either when users click on ads, or when the advertiser's ad is shown on your site. You'll receive a portion of the amount paid for either activity on your website.To find out how much you'll earn, sign up and start showing ads on your web pages. There's no cost, no obligation, and getting started is quick and easy. Sign up for GOOGLE adsense
Once you're a part of Google AdSense, you can view your earnings at any time by logging in to your account and clicking the Reports tab. You'll be able to see the total number of page and ad unit impressions, ad clicks, clickthrough rate, effective CPM, and your total earnings so you can get an idea of how well the program is performing for you and how much you can expect to earn over time in the program.The money will be send as cheque to the address provide by you at the end of each month.

MAKE INTERNET TV

Participatory Culture Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to making it easy for the general public to make, share, and see media using the Internet, has just launched a new site called Make , a one-stop guide to making your own Internet TV. This guide has step-by-step instructions for creating video feeds that can be easily subscribed to and have the potential to be watched by millions. Very soon, this site will feature short videos from experienced internet video publishers.
This is already done by Corporation Sdn Bhd is Malaysia's third pay television operator.After having obtained all the necessary approvals from the censorship board on its broadcast contents. The company is offering over 40 channels from content providers worldwide.
One of MiTV's distinguishing traits from Astro, another pay television operator in Malaysia, is that it utilises an over Ultra High Frequency based transmission system. Subscribers require only to install a standard UHF television antenna instead of a satellite dish to receive broadcasts. As a result, some of Astro's major caveats, such as disruption of service under bad weather conditions, do not apply to MiTV users.
On 31 October 2006, the company announced a corporate and technology restructing exercise. The exercise included suspension of all marketing and new subscription activities. In addition, approximately 66% of the companies workforce was retrenched. 66 % of the company workforce that has been retrenched will only be given a 1 month salary payment upon their termination.

Internet SHUTDOWN Count down begins now.....

Researchers say the time has come to rethink the Internet's underlying architecture are exploring tearing the Internet apart and rebuilding it to better address security and mobility
THE BEGINNING OF END

After four decades of building the Internet, some university researchers with the U.S. government's blessing want to shutdown all and start over.

The idea is surely unthinkable, but many believe a "clean slate" approach is the only way to truly address security, mobility and other challenges that have cropped up since Leonard Kleinrock helped supervise the first exchange of meaningless test data between two machines on Sept. 2, 1969.

The works well in many situations but it was designed for completely different assumptions, a Rutgers University professor overseeing three clean-slate projects. "It's sort of a miracle that it continues to work well today."

No longer constrained by slow connections and and high costs for storage, researchers say the time has come to rethink the Internet's underlying architecture, a move that could mean replacing networking equipment and rewriting software on computers to better channel future traffic over the existing pipes.

Even Vinton Cerf, one of the Internet's founding fathers as co-developer of the key communications techniques, said the exercise was "generally healthy" because the current technology "does not satisfy all needs." more....

EXPERIMENTS

The National Science Foundation wants to build an experimental research network known as the Global Environment for Network Innovations, or GENI, and is funding several projects at universities and elsewhere through Future Internet Network Design, or FIND.Rutgers, Stanford, Princeton, Carnegie Mellon and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are among the universities pursuing individual projects. Other government agencies, including the Defense Department, have also been exploring the concept.The European Union has also backed research on such initiatives, through a program known as Future Internet Research and Experimentation, or . Government officials and researchers met last month in Zurich to discuss early findings and goals.

A new network could run parallel with the current Internet and eventually replace it, or perhaps aspects of the research could go into a major overhaul of the existing architecture.These clean-slate efforts are still in their early stages, though, and aren't expected to bear fruit for another 10 or 15 years — assuming Congress comes through with funding.

And it could take billions of dollars to replace all the software and hardware deep in the legacy systems.Clean-slate advocates say the cozy world of researchers in the 1970s and 1980s doesn't necessarily mesh with the realities and needs of the commercial Internet.more.....

THE NEED FOR NEW BEGINNING

The Internet's early architects built the system on the principle of trust. Researchers largely knew one another, so they kept the shared network open and flexible — qualities that proved key to its rapid growth.But spammers and hackers arrived as the network expanded and could roam freely because the Internet doesn't have built-in mechanisms for knowing with certainty who sent what.The network's designers also assumed that computers are in fixed locations and always connected. That's no longer the case with the proliferation of laptops, personal digital assistants and other mobile devices, all hopping from one wireless access point to another, losing their signals here and there.

Engineers tacked on improvements to support mobility and improved security, but researchers say all that adds complexity, reduces performance and, in the case of security, amounts at most to bandages in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse.The Internet will continue to face new challenges as applications require guaranteed transmissions — not the "best effort" approach that works better for e-mail and other tasks with less time sensitivity.more.....

MISSION CRITICAL WORKS

Think of a doctor using teleconferencing to perform a surgery remotely, or a customer of an Internet-based phone service needing to make an emergency call. In such cases, even small delays in relaying data can be deadly.Even if the original designers had the benefit of hindsight, they might not have been able to incorporate these features from the get-go. Computers, for instance, were much slower then, possibly too weak for the computations needed for robust authentication.

Of course, a key question is how to make any transition — and researchers are largely punting for now.

"Let's try to define where we think we should end up, what we think the Internet should look like in 15 years' time, and only then would we decide the path," McKeown said. "We acknowledge it's going to be really hard but I think it will be a mistake to be deterred by that."

Kleinrock, the Internet pioneer at UCLA, questioned the need for a transition at all, but said such efforts are useful for their out-of-the-box thinking.

CLOCK TICKS

"A thing called GENI will almost surely not become the Internet, but pieces of it might fold into the Internet as it advances," he said.

Think evolution, not revolution.Princeton already runs a smaller experimental network called PlanetLab, while Carnegie Mellon has a clean-slate project called 100 x 100.Construction on GENI could start by 2010 and take about five years to complete. Once operational, it should have a decade-long lifespan.FIND, meanwhile, funded about two dozen projects last year and is evaluating a second round of grants for research that could ultimately be tested on GENI.These go beyond projects like Internet2 and National LambdaRail, both of which focus on next-generation needs for speed.

Any redesign may incorporate mechanisms, known as virtualization, for multiple networks to operate over the same pipes, making further transitions much easier. Also possible are new structures for data packets and a replacement of Cerf's TCP/IP communications protocols.more........
