Networks of zombie computers are used to generate e-mail spam and launch a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. You have almost certainly seen those emails. They are to email marketing what snake oil was to 19th century hucksters. They promise a cure for everything that ails you, from male pattern baldness to erectile dysfunction. Be careful, though. A fool and their credit card number are soon parted and the consequences can be severe. And you will still be bald and lonely!
Beyond the basic character traits such as logical thinking, having the skills needed to fix computers are essential. You should probably have a year or two of supporting computers underneath your belt before you start the business. If you don’t have that kind of time supporting Comport Computers yet, I would recommend volunteering your time to friends and family and maybe with a non profit organization. Non-profits are always looking for volunteers, and I am willing to bet that a larger one would have a fulltime computer guy who would love an extra set of hands.
You can always “nuke” your machine, that is, reformat the hard drive and reload everything from scratch starting with the operating system. That’ll work, but “Oh the humanity!”. It’s time consuming, requires that you have original installations of all your required applications and if you restore backed up data files you might just re-introduce the infection by accident.
learning computers As for USB flash drives, I also started from not having any idea as to what a computer flash drive is to always having one on my keychain. I had my first encounter with the gadget when I worked at a printing press. I was asked to save the design on a floppy diskette, but I frequently complained that the design file was too big for the diskette to contain. Then, my superior tried to look for a more convenient storage device for me, like the rewritable CD, and then came the USB flash drive. The usage process then wasn’t as convenient as it is today. Since we had Windows 98 installed on my workstation, prior to using the drive, we would have to install the necessary drivers first before we could use the thousand pesos 128MB USB drive.
Sometimes, though, we just can’t find the system that we had our hopes up for. In these cases you might consider buying an additional CD drive that you like and installing it yourself. If you don’t know how, ask around among our friends and you are sure to find at least one of them that can do it for you for almost nothing.
I started learning about computers late. My little cousins knew more about them than I did. What a shame. If I knew that computers would be that important as I grew older in life, I would of taken the time to learn more about them.
When you get a printer you probably wonder if more than one computer can use it. If two computers can use the printer how exactly does that work? The answer is that two computers can use the printer. Wireless printers are much like wire printers where once they have been set up on the computer they can be used. The main concern for most people is not whether two computers can use the printer but whether or not they can use it at the same time.
how to use computers The standard form of WiFi or 3G tablet PCs is the slate, which has a virtual keyboard although a physical one can be integrated via Bluetooth or by using a USB cable. A convertible tablet on the other hand has a pull out keyboard and although convenient tends to be bulky.
In 1984, the Apple Macintosh was released and Apple computers dominated the market. It was not a quick success. It went into production from January of 1984 to October of 1985.
