How to Set Your Computer to Boot from CD or USB Drive

September 11th, 2012 by Admin

Computers normally boot from the hard drive, which makes sense as this is where Windows operating system is stored. However, in some cases you will need to boot from CD or USB drive instead – e.g. if you need to install/reinstall Windows, or boot from a rescue CD/USB to backup your files, diagnose and repair a faulty Windows installation, or reset forgotten Windows password, etc. So in this tutorial we’re going to show you how to set your computer to boot from CD or USB drive.

Generally, there are two options to make your computer boot from CD or USB drive. When you power on your computer, check the boot-screen for setup key or boot menu key.

Option 1: By pressing the boot menu key, the screen will show a list of devices that your computer can boot from. Just use the arrow key to select your desired device (CD, USB or Hard Drive) and then press Enter. Your computer will directly boot from a specific device. This is the simplest way to set your computer to boot from CD/USB drive without changing computer BIOS settings. But the boot menu key is not available on some computers, then you need to turn to Option 2 instead.

Option 2: By pressing the setup key, it will bring up the BIOS Setup Utility. Once in the BIOS, navigate to the option that controls the boot order (this may be under “Boot” or “System Configuration” or “Storage”). There should be a list for “Boot Priority”. Place the CD/DVD or USB drive at the top of this list. Save your changes. Now restart the computer, it will try to boot from CD/DVD or USB drive before hard drive.

Usually, when you turn on your PC, there is a very short period, when the BIOS entrance command appears on the screen, but if you miss the moment, you will have to start all over again. If you know, what the keys combination you should use is, you need to press it immediately upon computer reboot, and sometimes you need to try pressing the key repeatedly as soon as the computer starts up.

The BIOS setup keys and boot menu keys are different as per computer manufacturer and even as per computer model. For you convenience, I am listing the BIOS setup keys and boot menu keys for the most popular computer models.

Dell BIOS Key
Boot Menu F12
F10 Note: Pressing ESC will bring up a menu with all hotkey options
Boot Menu F9
Lenovo BIOS Key

How to Bypass the Parental Control Time Limits in Windows 7/Vista/XP

September 7th, 2012 by Admin

Windows parental controls have the capacity to control when a user, such as your child, may use the computer. The time limits feature, when set up properly, will prevent your child from using the computer at the times you specify. If the child attempts to log on before the set time, Windows will prevent him from logging on. If he remains on the computer after the set time ends, the system will log off his account.

However, your children can still find their ways to bypass the parent control time limits. Here we’ll show you one method that kids use to bypass the parental control time limits in Windows 7/Vista/XP.

How to Bypass the Parental Control Time Limits?

To get started, you need to find another computer that you can log on as administrator, and create a password reset disk on a CD or USB stick. So you can then boot the computer with parental controls enabled from the CD/USB and it enables you to bypass Windows time limits immediately.

  1. Download the self-extracting Zip file of Reset Windows Password package.
  2. Unzip the download file, there is a CD ISO image: ResetWindowsPwd.iso. Burn it onto a blank CD/DVD or USB stick using ISO2Disc or any CD/DVD burning software you like.
  3. Boot the computer with parental controls enabled from the Windows password reset disk.
  4. Wait until the boot process is complete. When a window pops up with all your Windows accounts, select your limited user account and then click the Reset Password button.

  5. It will blank your user password and also remove the time limits that is set up on your user account.
  6. Take out the CD/USB and restart the computer, you can then log in to your account and use the computer without time limit.

When children use this technique, you may never know that they have bypassed the time limits settings. To block this method of bypassing the parental control time limits, the only option is to disable the USB and CD-ROM in computer BIOS and set a BIOS supervisor password to prevent your kids from modifying your BIOS settings again.

How can I Find Wireless Password

August 28th, 2012 by Admin

How do I find out my wireless network password? It’s stored on one computer and automatically logs me in when I turn it on, but I can’t remember what it is and someone at my house wants to connect.

When connecting to a wireless network or Wi-Fi connection which is encrypted with WEP, WPA or WPA2, Windows will offer to save and remember the wireless password so that Windows can automatically authenticate with the router or gateway to login and connect to the wireless network in future.

Chance are even the wireless password is automatically stored by Windows, some users may not even bother to remember the password, until when users reformat or reinstall Windows, or add a new PC to your wireless network.

In any case where you can’t remember or lost the wireless password for a wireless connection, and unable to get the wireless password from the router or gateway, the freeware utility, WirelessKeyView can help to find wireless key or password used in WEP, WPA or WPA2 encryption protocol stored in local computer by the ‘Wireless Zero Configuration’ service of Windows XP and by the ‘WLAN AutoConfig’ service of Windows Vista.

Download WirelessKeyView

Although the wireless password is saved and stored in local Windows computer, Windows OS does not provide an easy way to recover, find or display the wireless password on screen, in plain text and not hidden as asterisk, until Windows 7. In Windows 8 and Windows 7, you can easily find wireless password without using any third-party software.

Top 25 Most-Hacked Passwords Revealed

August 22nd, 2012 by Admin

Think your password is fine? You’d better check this list to be sure.

Password management app maker SplashData has released their list of the 25 worst passwords of 2011. These are the passwords that get hacked the most frequently, based on SplashData’s study of millions of stolen passwords that have been posted online by hackers.

Many of the worst offenders are sequential numbers (“123456”) or sequential keyboard keys (“qwerty”) or password-related words like “password” or “letmein”.

According to SplashData CEO Morgan Slain, who was quoted on Mashable, “Even though people are encouraged to select secure, strong passwords, many people continue to choose weak, easy-to-guess ones, placing themselves at risk from fraud and identity theft.”

People’s hesitance to make complicated passwords is understandable considering the sheer number of passwords the average person has–but that doesn’t make it alright. A 2007 study found that the average person had 25 passwords and used 8 of them per day. That number has almost certainly increased. However, what’s more annoying than having to remember Qw!cK@sAbunN!3 is having your identity stolen. In 2010, the FTC received 1.3 million complaints of fraud or identity theft.

So how can you make your passwords better? Use a variety of letters, numbers and symbols. Change them every six months. Don’t use the same one for every account, and know that even a slight variation makes a difference. Avoid using real words. According to Daily Finance, hackers use “dictionary attacks” that make it easy for them to crack passwords that are words or sequential numbers. And finally, don’t use any of these–SlashData’s 25 worst passwords of the year:

1. password
2. 123456
3. 12345678
4. qwerty
5. abc123
6. monkey
7. 1234567
8. letmein
9. trustno1
10. dragon
11. baseball
12. 111111
13. iloveyou
14. master
15. sunshine
16. ashley
17. bailey
18. passw0rd
19. shadow
20. 123123
21. 654321
22. superman
23. qazwsx
24. michael
25. football
