Most of us know the drill of pulling up our antivirus software and running a quick system scan or relying on other built-in security protections that come pre-loaded onto our devices, but antivirus software and Windows Defender are not the only things which can keep your computer protected. A huge determining factor in whether or not your computer will get malware is knowledge. Knowing what to be on the lookout for and how to protect yourself beforehand during your daily computing time can and will save you from a whole lot of headaches in the future, so here are four computer security threats you may not be aware of.

USB Drive Malware and Viruses:

Malicious attacks can happen very quickly if a nasty USB stick should be plugged into your computer by you or someone else. Studies show that more than half of people will readily plug in any random USB drives we find just to see what is on there. Modern versions of Windows and mac no longer run executables on USB drives by default, but the most advanced malware can get around this.

The best way to stay safe is to be careful with what you plug into your computer. If you do have an antivirus package installed on your computer, it might already have some kind of USB drive protection available, so make sure it’s correctly configured and switched on. Otherwise, run a thorough virus scan on any new drives when you attach them.

Webcam Hacking:

The easiest way to keep hackers out of your webcam is just to tape over the camera or use the built-in shutter. There is also some software tweaks you can make too. In Window, open up Device Manager, right click on your webcam and then choose Disable. In Windows 10 you can choose Privacy then Camera to pick which apps can and can’t use the webcam.

Insecure WiFi Connections:

Even if you’ve got all your data safely locked down on your computer, once it’s beamed out into the internet it can be nabbed by someone else with surprising ease. We’re talking here primarily about public Wi-Fi networks, where you’re sharing your access with a coffee shop or hotel full of other people.

Here are some steps you can take to stay protected; stick to sites that use secure HTTPS connections (usually signalled with a green padlock in your browsers address bar), install a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to add an extra layer of encryption and protection.

Social Media Attacks and Pop-ups:

In terms of computer use, being suspicious of emails and messages that pop up over the social platform, thinking twice about following through on pop-ups and prompts on your system, and being very careful about the information you cross paths with, whether that’s over the social media, in person or over the phone. Also, look out for phishing attacks.

Firewall support
By admin / General / 0 Comments

Firewalls are easily considered one of the most essential features of security for your computer. A firewall is a network security system that controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on the applied rule set. A firewall establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another network (e.g., the Internet) that is assumed not to be secure and trusted.

Why do you need a firewall? Today’s firewalls secure services and connections in your home or office network. When you connect to a public Wi-Fi connection, some services and connections will be blocked by the firewall. What is blocked and what is allowed is dependent upon how the firewall is configured. Blocking those connections is vital to your computer’s security.

Hardware and Software Firewalls
The hardware firewall in a broadband router is primarily concerned with keeping bad stuff from the outside from getting in. The limitation of this type of firewall is that it typically treats any kind of traffic travelling from the local network out to the Internet as safe, which can sometimes be a problem. For example, if your computer has a malicious program that sends out spam messages, a hardware firewall would not stop that from happening.

Software firewalls run on the computers individually. A software firewall is able to take a closer look at malicious traffic and intercept it before it leaves your computer. According to Microsoft, the most effective and important first step you can take to help protect your computer is to turn on the Windows firewall. If you have more than one computer connected to a network, it is important to protect every computer. You should have a hardware firewall (such as a router) to protect your network, but you should also use a software firewall on each computer to help prevent the spread of a virus in your network if one of the computers becomes infected.

Laptop Rental in chennai
By admin / Laptop / 0 Comments

This technology is really nothing new. It’s just based on the basic physics concept of resonance. When two entities are vibrating at the same frequency, they exchange energy, even if they are not in direct line of sight. This means with a transmitter on one end and a receiver on the other, energy could be transferred to an object. As the energy builds, it produces usable voltage. So a light bulb can be lit from across the room without being directly connected to a power source. All that is needed is a transmitter and a receiver. Its the same idea as the opera singer shattering glass with her voice.

So this concept could be brought to the wireless world that is becoming more and more prevalent. Recent studies have been done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and are showing a 40% efficiency rate with wireless power transmission, but could become more efficient as time goes on.

Ideally, a laptop could be powered from across entire rooms, regardless of what obstructions were between the transmitter and receiver, by being charged constantly without being plugged in. That means laptops could be charging while in range of the transmitter at all times. If the laptop stayed in the room, then it might not even need a battery. This could end the use of having to charge laptops by plugging them into an outlet, it could even replace batteries. No batteries would be cheaper and devices such as laptops could be made lighter and smaller.

Some people have presented the caution that broadcasting energy to power electric devices could, in turn, have a negative impact on people’s health. Powerful radiation can be hazardous to people’s health, but with the use of resonance coupling, wavelengths produced would be longer, which would be no more harmful than being exposed to radio waves.

This will be an interesting technology to keep an eye on in the years to come.

32bit cpu,64bit cpu

We always look for better configuration whenever we purchase computer or laptop for our personal use; there are so many things we have to make sure while buying a computer like RAM size, CPU, the storage capacity of hard disk and processor as well. We always want to have latest specifications and better processors; if you’re using windows on your computer then probably you have noticed that in your windows you have two program files folders in which one is “Program files” and the other one “Program Files (x86)”.Mainly to store the DLL files of 64-bit applications the folder “Program Files” is used and to store DLL file of 32-bit applications the folder “Program Files (x86)” is used which is one of the major differences you can notice while having 32-bit or 64-bit processor assembled in your system. We hardly pay our attention towards this little piece of information but when it comes to performance and efficiency then these little things makes much difference.

What is the 32-bit processor?

We all have been using a 32-bit processor which is known as the primary processor in all our computers, every single processor manufactured by Intel and AMD in early stages were 32-bit. All the operating systems and different software used in 32-bit processors mainly work with data units that are 32 bits wide. Some of the most common operating systems like Windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP are 32-bit operating systems. The computers which have 32-bit processors cannot use 64-bit operating systems; you can install only 32-bit operating systems on that PC.

What is the 64-bit processor?

The first 64-bit computer was manufactured by IBM and its name was IBM 7030 stretch supercomputer, but only in the early 2000s, we have started using 64-bit processors. Even Microsoft has introduced a 64-bit version of Windows XP which is compatible to use with 64-bit processors only after the 2000s. Other popular operating systems also capable of working with 64-bit processors are Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, which mainly works with data units that are 64 bits wide. You can even install the 32-bit operating system on a computer which has a 64-bit processor, but it will not work with its full capacity when you don’t install the 64-bit operating system on a computer which has a 64-bit processor.

The main difference between 32 & 64-bit processors

The biggest difference between 32-bit and 64-bit processors is the speed with which they can perform calculations, 64-bit processors work on much faster speed as compared to 32-bit processors. Even 64-bit processors come in dual core, quad core, six core and eight core variants which are mainly used in computers manufactured for home use. With multiple core processors, you can expect an increased number of calculations per second and also much faster-processing speed, which makes your computer runs at a faster speed. Today, we use programs that require faster calculations and processing which we will get only from 64-bit processors.

Even 64-bit processors support more RAM than 32-bit processors, at one end 32-bit processors support only 3-4GB of RAM whereas 64-bit Processors are designed to support 4GB RAM or above as well. So if you need to run applications that require more RAM like graphic design, video editing and engineering programs you need to have 64-bit processors installed in your desktop before installing this high-performance software. But in case if you need to run high graphics game you don’t have to upgrade your processor as you need to have a high graphics card instead of the better processor.

Conclusion

At present we all are using 64-bit processors as almost all computer manufacturers are installing 64-bit processors in their PCs, 64-bit processors are cheap as well and deliver better performance, so it is more profitable to buy 64-bit processor instead of 32-bit processor and soon every computer retailers offer only 64-bit processors in upcoming time. So we finally conclude that 64-bit processors are much better than 32-bit processors and with 64-bit processors, you can expect better performance with multiple layers in it. If we simply calculate the working speed of 64-bit processor than 64-bit processors can access over four billion times the physical memory of 32-bit processors which is a huge difference.

Computer rental

Technology rentals are a great way to save you and your business a lot of time and money. Temporary, short-term technology rentals are the perfect solutions for your short-term needs. A lot of event professionals and business professionals are constantly going to trade shows, conventions, conferences, and seminars or hosting things like corporate training events or business meetings and all of these situations have a need for short-term technology rentals. But in order to know exactly what it means to rent technology, you need to hear about it from a professional.

Bhuvan system has been in the business of computer, technology, and Laptop rentals for over 5 years. However, even after all those years, there are still people who don’t quite understand how renting technology works and how it can save you and your business time and money. Bhuvansystem provides temporary business-to-business technology, such as computer rentals, office equipment rentals, and Laptops rentals for business events all over the Chennai.

Below you can read more about what we do and how it can benefit you!

Why Rent Computers and Laptops

Some of the most common reasons our customers rent technology are conventions, conferences, trade shows, event registration, data collection, seasonal business and short-term jobs, classroom training, travel, disaster recovery, and proof of concept projects. Some industries acquire Server rental to use as a stand-in while their hardware is being upgraded or moved. Others, like CPAs, get Printer rentals and Laptop rental for their busy tax season. But in every scenario, the short-term rental, delivery, setup, and pickup, saves businesses the time and labour of transporting and setting up their own hardware while greatly reducing the expense as compared to the cost of purchasing.

Short Term Rentals For Short-Term Needs

While there are a plethora of different reasons for our customers to rent technology all of their needs have one thing in common: They’re short-term needs. Renting technology should be like renting a car. You only rent a car for a short time, like a week or so, and renting a computer or office equipment should be the same way. If you think you may need your technology for a few months or you are trying to finance a purchase then a rental is NOT what you want. You may be interested in leasing the technology, which is something different entirely.

Your time is valuable, so you don’t have time to waste on waiting for your Windows operating system to boot up. In the interest of saving time, today’s tip will go over three ways to speed up your Windows 10 boot time.

Of course, you should always check with IT to make sure it is okay before you make any changes to your system, or ideally, have IT handle it on your behalf.

1. Use Fast Start-up
Windows 10 comes equipped with a special function expressly intended to speed up the time it takes Windows to boot. Fast Start-up saves your boot information in a special file system, which makes the startup process faster the next time. Instead of going to sleep or turning off completely, your device hovers somewhere in between.

To activate Fast Start-up, open your Control Panel and navigate to Power Options (you may need to search for it). From there, select Choose what the power buttons do. One of your checkbox options will be Turn on fast start-up. Don’t forget to save your changes once you’re done.

2. Edit Your Start-up Programs
Windows has a list of programs that startup along with the operating system. While this list is meant to improve the user experience, it can easily become overcrowded and bloated, ultimately bogging down your system. Trimming some unnecessary programs from this process can help speed things back up.

Pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc will open the Task Manager and clicking the Start-up tab will bring up this list, where you can disable any unwanted applications. It is especially important that you check with IT to make sure this isn’t a task they want to have a hand in, as disabling the wrong program could cause you quite a few problems.

3. Simple Hardware Updates
Finally, giving your equipment a few component upgrades can improve your performance considerably. For example, if you aren’t using an SSD drive to hold your Windows 10 installation, you are missing out on some speed benefits there alone. Adding a small SSD drive to run the operating system, and some additional RAM as well can likely give you the performance boost you are looking for.

Keeping your computer malware-free is easy if you follow these simple tips.

1: Install, update and use anti-virus software

Installing antivirus software may sound like an obvious first step to protect against malware, but not everyone bothers to do it. With so many options now available, though, there really is no excuse. Microsoft offers its own free protection in the form of the Windows Defender Security Centre

Once installed, it’s vital to regularly update your anti-malware software’s database and run system scans at least once a month.

2: Keep Windows up to date

Hackers often discover new ways to bypass Windows’ built-in security features, which is why Microsoft issues small operating system updates every Tuesday and larger updates once or twice a year. These will be downloaded and installed automatically by Windows Update, but only if this feature is properly configured.

Windows Update cannot be switched off by default in Windows 10, you should be receiving updates already. However, if you’d like to check for a new update, search Windows Update from the Start Menu and click Check for updates.

3: Turn on the Windows firewall

Windows has a built-in ‘firewall’ that protects your PC from unwanted attention via the internet. This software firewall is enabled by default and works alongside any hardware firewall that’s built into your home broadband router. Check its settings by typing “check firewall” in the Start menu search box and choosing Check firewall status from the results.

Three green tick marks mean the firewall is working normally – if not, select each one to turn the firewall on.

4: Use the latest version of your web browser

Web browsers are vital applications, but just like other software, they can contain bugs. Hackers are quick to capitalise on these and create bogus (or infect genuine) websites with data designed to exploit them. Once a web browser has been compromised in this way, a hacker can monitor everything you type, including passwords to credit card numbers. That’s why it’s vital to use the latest version of your web browser – anything other than this may be a security risk.

Internet Explorer is on its way out to make way for Microsoft Edge, so don’t expect to use that forever. Edge, like Google Chrome and Firefox browsers, should automatically update themselves.

5: Don’t fall for phishing emails

Emails that appear to be from a recognisable online service asking you to log into a site to confirm some personal details are always fake.

These emails are usually caught by your email application’s spam filter, but if one does slip through and you click its link, your web browser should detect and block the site it takes you to.

This does depend on your web browser is aware of the fraudulent site, though, which is another good reason to always use the most recent version.

6: Use the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

If you suspect your PC has succumbed to malware and your anti-malware software doesn’t detect it, there are two steps to take.

The first is to download and run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool from the Windows download centre. This will detect and remove specific types of malware and is very simple to use, although it isn’t a replacement for a full anti-malware application.

7: Still infected? Use a boot CD.

Some malware can hide within Windows and make itself difficult to detect and remove. If your own anti-malware software and the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool fail to shift it, you’ll need to download and burn a free anti-malware boot CD – refer to your computer’s manuals for instructions on how to boot from a CD as the process varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
