  3. If you are going to work and do a lot of browsing on the Internet, the first thing you need to learn is how to take care of your computer. It is far better that you take the trouble to look after your computer regularly, rather than have it freeze or crash when you lose everything on it, at which time you'll have to pay out a lot to have it fixed. Here are some tips to prevent disasters: 1) Set your virus checker to update itself automatically. This way, it is always updated with the latest protection. 2) Scan your computer daily when you finish working on it. 3) If on a certain day you happen to download many pages, software, programs, zipped files, exe files, etc., immediately after downloading everything, scan your computer. This way, just in case a virus existed in anything you downloaded, you will catch it in time before it infects your entire Hard Drive. 4) Use your online scanner to scan your computer once a week. 5) Use your adware/spyware checker once a week. 6) Do not open any attachments in emails from people you do not know. 7) Do not open any attachments even from people you do know, if you are not expecting anything from them. 8) A virus could replicate itself to everyone on the address book and send itself out by email, without the owner even knowing this has been done. 9) Do not download free music on the Internet - these free sites are always infected. 10) Do not download any free games from the Internet. 11) Adult sites are particularly prone to viruses. 12) Back up all your data on a daily basis. Use floppy disks, flash drives, memory sticks, zip disks, CD-Roms, etc. 13) Print out contracts, payment forms, agreements and all legal documents and file them away in a ring-binder. 14) Try not to keep anything to do with your finances, payment details, payment processor passwords, credit card details, etc. on your computer. 15) A hacker could easily access all these details, if they are anywhere on your computer. Sadly, despite all these precautions your computer might still get infected, as the people who invent these malicious programs are getting even sneakier.
  4. Printers have evolved as a very important part of today’s infrastructure of any company. Traditionally people have to invest separately for different products required in an office (essential ones also). There has to be a printer, a fax machine, a scanner….but now as the technology is converging, so are the products. We have today a Multi functional Printer that does all the tasks like faxing, copying, scanning and printing for us. In short the world today wants a compact device that adds much value to their daily printing , copying,scanning and Fax needs at a much affordable cost. A multi functional printer is a combinational product comprising of a printer, scanner, copier, and sometimes also a fax machine. It is a very useful product as avoids the maintenance of numerous machines. Printers are typically classified in two categories based on the technology (widely used today) - Inkjet printers ,Laser printers and DMPs or shall we say Dot matrix printers.

  5. Shopping online is rapidly becoming the preferred mode of bargain hunting for many. In 2007 Britons spent a whopping £55.3 billion via the web – an increase of roughly a third on the previous year – and we have already dropped £13 billion into web retailers’ (or etailers’) tills in the first three months of 2008, according to IMRG, the trade body for UK online retailers. The problem is, as spending increases, so does fraud and the number of online Del Boys trying to relieve us of our cash. Losses from “card not present†fraud, where criminals use stolen credit card details to buy goods online or over the phone, are approaching £300m a year, warns Apacs, the banking payments trade body. The good news is that there are plenty of simple steps you can take to protect yourself from the scammers or from finding yourself at the sharp end of iffy practices by even the biggest etailers. We’ll show you how to enjoy the best of the global bazaar yet steer clear of any infected web pages, pay for goods securely and unearth the best guides to your extensive consumer rights if it does all go wrong. PROTECT YOURSELF The web can seem benign, but it is full of nasties lying in wait to ambush the unprotected shopper. A growing trend is for scammers to lure you to a fake website that looks like a well known site and then steal your credit card details – a practice known as “pharmingâ€. Others try to get your computer to inadvertently download dodgy software (or “malwareâ€) that later steals your personal details. Even legitimate websites have been “injected†with similar malware. So how should you protect yourself? Get Safe Online, the government-backed consumer website, is a crucial pit stop. It advises you to always download the latest version of your web browser as these have built-in filters than can spot many fake websites. To be sure of exactly which site you are visiting, download and install SpoofStick, which will then display the real name of the website in the top of your browser window. Antivirus software and a firewall are also must-haves. Yet a 2006 YouGov poll for Get Safe Online found more than a fifth of UK internet users didn’t employ a firewall and a sixth lacked antivirus software. Many companies sell a bloated suite of internet security software that often slows your computer down. So before you rush to invest, take advice on what you need. The market for one-stop security suites is competitive but ZoneAlarm 7 is hard to beat. Many providers offer free versions of specific software in the hope you will buy their full package later. AVG antivirus from Grisoft is an excellent program that even automatically scans links on search results to see if they lead to known scammer sites. McAfee Site Advisor is an unobtrusive tool that uses a traffic-light system to warn you about the validity of any link before you click on it. Want a firewall configure or spyware protection ? Try Comodo Firewall Pro or Spyware Terminator.
