Trick to Block the Websites withoutThird party softwares

             Most of you have came across the software which blocks the websites in your office or else in the restricted environment.For doing this there are more third party softwares available in the market most of them are paid and very few are free wares but when we move for free wares these will be less effective than paid ones.So most of them will prefer the paid one.In the very small company or in the home its very difficult to invest money in the paid one in this kind of situation we can make use of  the windows inbuilt restriction. Actually there is no any such kind of facility provided by Microsoft but we are using this as a trick.This can be done by modifying the Host file

How it works
          It is system file by editing this we can retrict the sites which is be to negleted.The information behind this is for example when you are browing the web page first it will search in the host file for the IP of the website if it not found then it will directly refer the DNS server so by this if we are going to provide some false IP for the website so the webpage cannot be diaplayed.So by this we can restrict what ever sites we want without any third party or freeware softwares. So lets see how to do this trick

1.Start ->run -> drivers and select etc and click on the host file

2.Or else Goto the the location c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

3.Open the file with a notepad and append the file below the  local host

4.Add the IP of your wish and the leave a space and the web address for example you want to restrict the orkut website means

5.Now the given webpage in the host file cannot be accessed.

Note:To edit the host file you need the admin right of the local system.

Safe mode - Error free console

Some of you would have heard this word safe mode, If you don’t know safe mode this article would help you to know better. This is the console like thing for you operating system. Lets consider the scenario you have installed one software and its working fine and time later you faced some problem like you pc get hanged and it is occurring often so you want to find why this occurs. In this it’s very difficult to find the root cause for this problem so in this we don’t have any other option to check whether this problem has been occurred regarding that software so in this case we are only one way to find the solution is the safe mode.

techiesniffer_safe mode_safe boot_f8


The safe mode is the kernel or else another entry point for getting into the operating system. So the specialty this mode is no windows drivers and other media drivers will work and in this mode the operating system will run only with the very important files which is minimum enough to run the operating system. So I think the answer is very clear for the above scenario so if you don’t face any issue in your safe mode then you can confirm the problem is due to the new installed software or new application. Incase if you face any issues in safe you can move forward with the event viewer logs.

To go the safe mode

1. Power on your system
2. As soon as its getting booted press F9 to enter to the safe mode menu
3. In this you can select weather the last known good configuration or else with the safe mode.

Note: The last known good configuration is the setting save by the system by this it will restore from it memory. This will work better when there is a unexpected power shutdown so at that time some dll files may corrupted. So by this we can repair very small problems.

3 Simple ways to Secure your password

          Password is the one of the most important now a days,because all the things are globalized now-a-days and by this we are using via the internet.So for this we need the authentication to access our resources because in internet all are having the own resources so we are using the username and password for accessing our resources.So now-a-days passwords are very important.So its our duty to safegaurd them from un authorized access.So you should be carefull and you should not share to anyone.

3 ways to Secure your password

Dont use the names and well known passwords
                Dont use the name as your password like "arun" "ashok" and dont keep the common passwords as "password" and "password123" and try to use the alpha numeric and if u wish to keep the name as our password see this may help you to not forget for this you can keep "p@$$word" instead of password so it would be difficult to track.

Dont use same password
               For example you are having more than one account dont use the same password for all the thing,because if a person or hacker would found your password for one account he can access all your accounts so have the pool of passwords and use that from the pool so by this your password will be in memory and accordingly if anyone found one account password he may not access the all.
Dont keep the open minded security question
                This is the very crucial part because when tries to opne our accout he will use default passwords so his next move will be answering your security question.Say if the person is your old friend so he may know answer for certain question like "your nick name" "your birth place" and "your fathers name" so dont use such kind of question select question like "your favourite place" and "your mothers birth palce" by this we can secure by answering the recovery question.
Note : Try to use the alpha numeric password for best practices so this would help you from "brute force attack" and some other attacks.
Quote : "Passwords are like your tooth brush so dont share with anyone".

Virtualization -Emerging technology Ahead

                    Virtualization is the platform which founded to minimize the component and maintanance cost without loosing the performance.In virtualization the physical machine is divided into muliple logical partions and each component will act as a indudival machine.This is the emerging technology in the current IT trend , now most of the datacentres and servers are virtualized.In virtualization the host operating system will be installed and in this the vitual machine will be created and each of them will be used as a indudival server.

Why Virtualization:
         Lets consider one example you want to deploy one corporate environment for this you are in need for 5 servers.So you will be purchasing the 5 servers from vendor and the in this you dont need the space of those server.So in such case You can buy 2 servers one is for production and other for fail-over cluster.In main server you just install the host operating system such as (VMWARE or HyperV).In that create the instance for 5 virtual machines and you can make the each virtual machine as an individual server.So by this we can reduce the number of servers and cost of servers and space too.
Types of vitualization.
1.Hardware Virtualization
2.Application Virtualization
3.Desktop Virtualization
4.Storage Virtualization

  Virtualization can be done with the help of two giant one is Hyper V it is the product
of Microsoft and other is VM ware is the separate product.The Hyper V is the new technology which
is used only in Windows server 2008.

Virtualization - The Best practice
   By this virtualization we can minimize the product cost and we can obtain the maximum
utilization of the resources in the efficient manner.
