windows defender is turned off by group policy

After upgrading my windows seven to windows 8, i had found some problem about my windows defender. Yup, my windows defender couldn't active.

just follow this two simple steps :
  1. I had installed another anti virus program ( AVG ) so the windows defender was automatic turn off     by system. so the first things to do is uninstall your antivirus (skip this if you don't have another Antivirus installed).
  2. The Second step is change the registry value. The Group Policy is it referring to is probably the value DisableAntiSpyware under HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender in        the registry.Just delete that value and Windows Defender should work again..
Restart your PC and enjoy your Windows Defender.

How to update Smoothwall express manually without internet connection

Actually updating Smoothwall express is very simple and easy, just goes to Maintenance menu and click updates tabs. There will be a list about installed updates. You can click check for updates button and click update button if there are new update in list. All done and very easy, but how to update fresh Smoothwall express manually without internet connection?

I have an experience in this problem, after got the answer in Smoothwall support forum; I will share it here to  everyone who was browsing for this problem in future.
The first step to update Smoothwall express manually without internet connection is todownload the update patch from here:

After downloading the patches go to Maintenance menu and click updates tabs. Click advance and then browse the tar.gz file that you have downloaded before. Click upload and you will get this error “This is not an authorised update, or your patchlist is out of date”. What’s going on?

though, you also need the updates list to update your Smoothwall otherwise the updates would be considered invalid. Brand new Smoothwall will not has this list and it will not get this list until it connnect to the internet. This might mean putting a temporary and supported niche in place until it is updated.

alternatively, you could copy the list from a running smoothwall. it is located at /var/smoothwall/patches/available or if you don’t have it you can download from here: (NB : unzip it before copying)

After copying that file to /var/smoothwall/patches/ try to open your update menu and there will be a list of updates file. Now, click advance again and browse the tar.gz file, click upload and the updates will be installed in your Smoothwall Express.

How to delete autorun.inf folder in your Flashdisk

Usually autorun.inf folder in our Flashdisk was created by antivirus such as Smadav.
This folder was created to prevent another autorun.inf file infected our flashdisk. This folder is useful and not dangerous but sometime was annoying because we cannot delete this folder like usually we did.
When we tried to delete this folder, it will always say, “cannot remove this folder” quite annoying I think. So, how to delete this folder? Maybe you can use this simple method to do it.
* Open Command Prompt
* The first step is delete aux folder by typing rmdir /s /q [drive]:\autorun.inf\con\aux\ and then press ENTER ([drive] is your Flashdisk location).
* Then delete con folder by typing rmdir /s /q [drive]:\autorun.inf\con\ and then press ENTER.
* The last step is delete autorun.inf folder itself, type rmdir /s /q [drive]:\autorun.inf\ press ENTER.
* Finally autorun.inf folder was successful deleted.

Free Top Level Domain dot TK

I recently change my second level domain dot to become top level domain dot TK.

What is dot TK?
Dot TK is a FREE domain registry for all websites on the Internet. It has exactly the same power as other domain extensions, but it's free! Because it's free, millions of others have been using .TK domains since 2001 - which makes .TK powerful and very recognizable.

Actually my main reason to change the domain is because i wanted to become a publisher in a certain site because that site only accepted top level domain and do not accept second level domain like blogspot and wordpress and i think every search engine also preferred top level domain than second level domain. isn't it ?

Why i choose dot TK?
i have choosen dot TK because it's Top level domain and it's free. i hadn't found another places that can offered me a free top level domain.Dot TK relates to the country of Tokelau and maybe in order to grow up it had given a free domain to millions people.

So if you want a free top level domain you can go to the website here:
Free top level domain dot TK

I thought it must be something wrong with the firewall setting so I try to open firewall setting in control panel, but every time I tried to open firewall setting it always said, ”Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings.”

What’s wrong with the firewall? It appeared because of a virus or Malware corrupts SharedAccess.reg file. The SharedAccess.reg file represents the Windows Firewall service. In this several days I indeed always try to remove some virus that infect that computer, after removing the virus it appear to effect the network sharing.

    Username and password not accepted in gmail pop3

    We used java application to check mail programmatically from gmail. It works fine until several days ago we got some report that many users got some error when trying to check mail from gmail. The error said “username and password not accepted. Class java.mail.authenticationFailedException”.

    I tried to login to gmail via browser but nothing wrong with it so what’s the problem? I begin to searching google and finally I got the answer. Because of using an application to check mail programmatically so the frequency of checking was very high so gmail use Captcha to block it.

    How to solve it? Just got to Unlock Captcha fill your username and password and then unlock it. Problem is solved.

    How can Chapter 7 bankruptcy help you to get out of debt?

    Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of the ways you can get debt relief. However, filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy will make you learn it the hard way. If you have left your debts unattended for a considerable time period, debts won’t reduce but they will continue piling up and so will your troubles. Bankruptcy is usually the last debt help option opted for when all other debt solutions have failed to give you the desired result.

    Chapter 7 bankruptcy also referred to as “liquidation” is the process in which a court appointed trustee will liquidate or sell your non-exempt assets so that the proceeds of the same can be used to pay off your creditors. It may be mentioned here that non-exempt assets are those that you cannot retain when you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. There are state as well as federal exemptions and you may enjoy either state exemption or federal exemption. A debtor is not allowed to enjoy both exemptions.

    Means test in Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the most filed and as per the new Federal Bankruptcy Laws that were introduced on October 17th 2005, the federal government has introduced certain changes that have changed the way bankruptcy was filed earlier. The new federal bankruptcy laws have been made more stringent. One of the prominent changes that were introduced is the Means Test in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

    Means test finds out your eligibility to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When you undertake the means test, your income is compared to the median income of a similar household in the same state in which you reside. If it is found that your income is less than the median income, you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If not, your bankruptcy attorney may suggest that you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Effect of Chapter 7 bankruptcy on your credit score
    Filing bankruptcy impacts your credit score in a negative manner. It damages your credit rating and gets recorded in your credit report for a period of 10 years. If you file bankruptcy, there are many adverse effects that you have to face.

    You may not get employment as per your choice; your lender may not extend fresh credit, your insurance carrier may not give you a good deal or a landlord may deny you a rented premise. However, you have ample opportunity to repair your credit rating and become lenders’ favorite again.
