4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO

There are a few things that can be

done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a

life saver or an emergency tool for survival..

Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST

Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for  Mobile   is 112.

If you find yourself out of the coverage area of

your mobile; network and there is an emergency,

dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing

network to establish the emergency number for you,

and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled

even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND

Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry?

This may come in handy someday.

Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your

keys in the car and the spare keys are at home,

call someone at home on their mobile phone

from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from

your car door and have the person

at your home press the unlock button,

holding it near the mobile phone on their end.

Your car will unlock..

Saves someone from having to

drive your keys to you.

Distance is no object.

You could be hundreds of miles away,

and if you can reach someone who has

the other ‘remote’ for your car, you can

unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Editor’s Note: It works fine! We tried it out and

it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!’

THIRD

Hidden  Battery   Power

Imagine your mobile battery is very low.

To activate, press the keys *3370#

Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the

instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.

This reserve will get charged when

you charge your mobile next time.

FOURTH

How to disable a

STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone’s serial number,

key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen.

This number is unique to your handset.

Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.

When your phone get stolen, you can phone

your service provider and give them this code.

They will then be able to block your handset

so even if the thief changes the SIM card,

your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won’t get your phone back,

but at least you know that whoever stole it

can’t use/sell it either..

If everybody does this, there would be

no point in people stealing mobile phones.

ATM – PIN Number Reversal – Good to Know

If you should ever be forced by a robber to

withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can

notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.

For example, if your pin number is 1234,

then you would put in 4321.

The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is

backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine.

The machine will still give you the money you requested,

but unknown to the robber, the police will be

immediately dispatched to the location.

This information was recently broadcast on CTV by Crime Stoppers

however it is seldom used because people just don’t know about it.

  • In that case, we cant disconnect the broadband connection and we cant even turn off the LAN connection. The only way is to restart the computer.

Speed up Morzilla Firefox

How to make Mozilla Firefox work Faster!!!

1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll
down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time.
When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really
speeds up page loading.
2. Alter the entries as follows:
Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This
means it will make 30 requests at once.
3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”.
This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.
4. In IPv6-capable DNS servers, an IPv4 address may be returned when an IPv6 address is requested. It is possible for Mozilla to recover from this misinformation, but a significant delay is introduced.
Type network.dns.disableIPv6 in the filter search bar and set this option to true by double clicking on it.
If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages 2-30 times faster now.

Some times some stupid viruses may disable or Task Manger, Folder options and some registry options, then the best way to tackle such type of situations is to use any one of the following techniques.

  • Install Smart Antivirus, and then put that in the startup processes, so when ever task manager is disabled it will automatically install the task manager.
  • The best one is the Autorun eater. If you install this, all the three problems will be solved.
  • If you want to get back the Task manger, when you dont have the softwares this is the best method.Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below:

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

How to Increase the Net speed

HOW TO INCREASE NET SPEED

TECHNIQUE 1
Host Resolution Priority Tweak host name resolution priority
For Windows 2k/XP



First, open the Windows Registry using Regedit, and (after backing up) navigate to:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ServiceProvider

Note the following lines (all hex dwords):
Class = 008 (8) – indicates that TCP/IP is a name service provider, don’t change.

LocalPriority = 1f3 (499) – local names cache
HostsPriority = 1f4 (500) – the HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 7d0 (2000) – DNS
NetbtPriority = 7d1 (2001) – NetBT name-resolution, including WINS

What we’re aiming to do is increase the priority of the last 4 settings, while keeping their order. The valid range is from -32768 to +32767 and lower numbers mean higher priority compared to other services. What we’re aiming at is lower numbers without going to extremes, something like what’s shown below should work well:

Change the “Priority” lines to:
LocalPriority = 005 (5) – local names cache
HostsPriority = 006 (6) – the HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 007 (7) – DNS
NetbtPriority = 008 (8) – NetBT name-resolution, including WINS


TECHNIQUE 2

Increase your Internet Speed..
Try this , if you have windows XP professional
this is for broad band connections/dial up running Windows XP.
1. log on as Administrator.
2. start -> run -> type gpedit.msc
3. expand “local computer policy”
4. expand “administrative templates”
5. then expand “network branch”
6. Highlight the “QoS Packet Scheduler”
7. on right window double click “limit reservable bandwidth”
8. on setting tab check the “enabled”
9. change “Bandwidth limit %” to 0
reboot if prompted
this is because Windows XP reserve 20% of the bandwidth for its self.

gphone.exe is nowadays one of the most dangerous virus spreading very fastly.Its a trojan and changes your IE homepage and sends tries to open gtalk and yahoo messenger.It even sends messages to gtalk contacts and sends some arbitary links. Never ever click those links unless you want to get effected by this deadly virus.
Gphone virus basically is a 260 kb or some times 360 kb .exe file which looks like a folder and it can take any name of any other folder if you have clicked on the virus folder which looks like a folder but it isnt.If you have a folder name “movies” in your E drive it will make a exe file in the folder named movies.exe and if you click on that exe file it too work as a virus.It makes .exe files in all the folders you have with the name of the folder.
If you start clicking those exe files, new processes will be added to the processes list in the task manager. Eventually it will slow down the computer.

Prevention


1. Do NOT click on any unauthorized link which you get from your contacts in gtalk or Yahoo Messenger.

2. Do NOT double click on duplicate folders.THey are not actually the folders.They are the exe files.(A folder with the same name as the parent folder, for example a folder called ‘songs.exe’ inside the ‘songs’ folder) in a pen drive as they are disguised virus files. You can easily spot they difference as their size will be around 260KB or 360 kb.

3. Install a spyware detector like Spyware Doctor to regularly scan for malware.

4. Install Tune Up Utilities to check and fix your registry from serious errors.
CURE
If you are effected with this stupid Gphone virus, dont worry, follow these steps.

1) Download AVG 8.5 or later version, it is free of cost you can get that from http://www.softpedia.com website. I have used this versoin of AVG (avg_free_stf_en_85_386a1586)
2)After that disconnect your internet connection to prevent the virus from being able to spread itself in the network by sending messages to your contacts.

3) After that run a whole computer scan to remove this virus. And presto,the virus will be gone.
You may encounter the following viruses,trojans and spywares
Viruses
Worm/Autoit.VQV
Worm/Generic.EDT
Worm/Generic_c.ZS
Win32/Heur
AutoRun.FN
Generic.XPW
Generic_c.YH
Generic.XPU
Generic.XPV
Trojan Horse
SHeur2.CVH
SHeur2.GJY
Spyware
Adware Generic.JHF
Adware Generic.JBT
Adware Generic.COE
If you still want to further check or clean your computer then do the following steps, but they are not neccasary. Just for our satisfaction…. 🙂
1) Disconnect once again from the internet.
2)Use the Process Manager in ‘Tune Up’ or ‘Glaxy Utilities’ to delete the “gphone.exe” process
3) Go to Windows Search (Run > Search) and search the entire computer for “.exe” files that are less than 270KB and shift delete all the duplicate folders which appear (usually they are 262KB). Remember to include hidden folders in your search.
4) Use a properly updated spyware scanner, (like spyware doctor) to search the registry for corrupted entries by the virus.
5) Use the Registry Editor to manually search for the infected registries and delete them (registry editing is very dangerous, make sure you do NOT delete the wrong registries) . For the corrupted registries you can edit them by right clicking on the entry, clicking on “edit” and removing the text “gphone.exe” from the registry entry
6) Go to Internet Options in Control Panel, and change the home page of Internet Explorer back to blank. Also add the virus link to restricted sites.
7) Go to Task Scheduler in Control Panel, and delete the entry “At 1 am…. “.. This is the entry which enables the virus to reinstall itself everyday even after removing it. Until you remove this entry, the virus will continue to reappear.
8) Scan the whole computer for one last time
9) Restart.
