I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Block Websites over/on Wifi Network ?

There may be something in the router configuration for website blocking...

Edit: I found on the Netgear site that this router does support URL blocking, but the user guide is useless (all Optus branded). Your best bet would be to log in to your router and look for "Website Filtering" or something along those lines.

i have a 13 year-old-sister that is getting into trouble using msn messenger and other messenger services. I've tried to uninstall the software multiple times, but everytime I get back on, she has redownloaded it, no matter how many times I lecture and threaten her. I tried to see if there were a way to actually block the msn messenger service altogether from being downloaded, but had no luck finding any info on that. So then I wanted to know if there was a way to block certain websites, so she couldnt even have access to the download pages. That may come in handy in the future too to block other sites. Any advice you may have on any of these things I would very much appreciate it. Thank you.

A:How to block certain websites

there are a couple of things that come to mind right off the top of my head.
1. siteadvisor by mcafee. i'll try to get back to you with a link. any bad sites get a red X, your sister will probably ignore them, however.
2. is a website that is affiliated with a national radio show. there will probably be some help there because there is a lot of focus there about the dangers of the web for young people. i believe there is actual software that will stop the visiting of bad sites, though it may cost money.

I know it sounds a little weird but there are websites that I want to block from myself. I visit them even though I shouldn't and I need to stop myself.

Is there a way to block sites and then make it so I can't undo it? Perhaps by having to input a password that is full of jumbled letters? I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

Many thanks if you can help my weird problem.

I do remember a program that does just that. I will keep looking but Windows Steady State might work for you, too. (FREE)Using Microsoft Windows SteadyState to Limit Access is a new program by Microsoft for Windows XP and Vista users that allows you to define features by user profiles. As you might guess, you need to have different user accounts and assign privileges. These privileges range from being able to save data to the hard drive or gaining access to the Internet. Microsoft describes the product as allowing you to, * Defend shared computers from unauthorized changes to their hard disks * Restrict users from accessing system settings and data * Enhance the user experience on shared computersWindows SteadyState is free and powerful. It?s one people might consider when they get a new computer. There are a couple caveats. The first is the program works using an Internet whitelist, not blacklist. In other words, you can tell SteadyState to allow a specific profile access to a web site, but you couldn?t list a site as an exclusion.Another caveat is that it comes with a learning curve which makes sense given its capabilities. There is a fairly active community where you can pose questions but I would suggest reading the documentation before you start. Currently the program does not work with Vista 64 bit versions.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------K9 may also work. to Home Users)Web Site ExceptionsIn addition to the defined and custom protection levels, K9 Web Protection allows you to explicitly block or allow access to specific Web sites. For example, K9 is blocking a site, but you want to allow access to it, but not any others in the category.

I have been trying to block access to proxy sites without success. What I have done works on some but not all.

I've used a program called Internet Lock to block the port 443, but still I can access the proxy site.

I've put the name of the domain in the list of block sites, still it passes.

I tried to find out the IP address of the website, but I can't find it. Don't know if that would even work anyway.

One proxy site in particular seems to bypass all locks.

If anyone knows how to block such sites, without losing access to gmail, yahoo mail, hotmail, it would greatly be appreciated.

all kinds of techniques, depending upon the volume (number) and or content.

If you have a router, you may be able to block URLs that contain specific keywords
(eg porno term ) which would block man urls with each keyword

if you have just a few sites and want to kill access to all content from them, add to your hosts file (ask and I can provide details)

if you need to bock a specific url from a site and allow all others, you can add it to
your Block list in the browser.

Hi all,

Well, I've got a strange issue that started yesterday (possibly two days ago). I was watching tv shows on TV Shows, Movies and Music Videos - when it suddenly stopped loading. I assumed it was a site issue since all other websites I visited loaded fine. Yesterday, I tried to load up Valve and it wouldn't load. Neither would

I visit these sites almost everyday and never encountered an issue like this. I don't remember messing around with settings on anything. I haven't downloaded any new programs.

Is there any way to force websites (any website) to load and page-down normally and block infinite scroll - or whatever it's called. I don't know the word for it. The thing where you page down and you think you're at the bottom of the page but then more stuff keeps loading.

This is one of the stupidest designs in the history of the internet and makes my head explode because it has no useful purpose whatsoever. I need it to just stop.

A:Block infinite scroll on websites?

Not that I know of. Infinite scroll (yes, it's actually called infinite scroll) is defined in the programming of the website itself and not as a characteristic of the browser that you can change at will.

It really serves a very useful purpose, it's used to page the contents of the website. Imagine that, without it, the page will have to load in its entirety for you to see anything. Take for example the Google images search result. Not having infinite scroll means that the whole result set will have to load before seeing anything. Considering the amount of results Google can get it will be a looooooong delay time.

The obvious alternative would be using a normal page scheme (next/previous/first/last/etc). Using one or the other or something else is a decision of the web designer that browsers can't change at will.

Is there a good extension that I can add sites to that Chrome would then not open? Something like a button on the top right that I can click on to say this site is trash never open it again.

A:block people using my wifi freely

Obviously he's no friend or he wouldn't be taking advantage of you.

You'll have to change your wireless password and you also need to password-protect your computer so that he can't get access to it.

As for not being able to refuse him, just hold a knife to his throat and tell him he's having no more free rides on your wireless network. If he persists, report him to your ISP.

A:How to block all network connections but not hamachi private network?

From what I've read, you have to allow Hamachi to contact its server in order to login.

Apart from that, go to Windows Firewall, Exceptions tab, and uncheck everything that you feel is not used.

A stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall will only allow networks packets to come in if it has seen packets going out to that address. So if an application talks to a server, then that server is allowed to reply back. Otherwise all other inbound connections attempts are blocked. The Windows Firewall is an SPI type. So, that should fulfill your requirement of "disabling all network connections" .

One thing you should consider. Windows Firewall on XP doesn't block outgoing applications. So if you downloaded a malware and it starts calling home, Windows Firewall will not stop it. There are free firewalls available, like Comodo and Online Armor, which have outbound blocking. These 2 have a built in white list of safe programs to allow online. If an unrecognized program calls outbound, it will ask you for permission.

I don't understand why an antivirus will ruin you. I'll assume that you mean financially. There are a number of antivirus programs that are free: AVG Free, MS Security Essentials and Avast.

You stated that you want the 'most secured pc possible'. So I'll add some other advice.

Get a router if you don't have one. Even if you have only 1 PC. The router will act as a basic hardware firewall. The Windows Firewall is ok, but you need that router as an additional layer of defense.

It is best not to tamper with Internet Explorer, it is too integrated into Windows. Besides, you will need a browser to configure your router. But you can use Firefox, Opera or Chrome.

A secured Windows is one that is configured to do Only the things you need, and nothing more. When you have extra features that you don't need, it just enlarges the 'attack surface' that an attacker can use. First things to look for are the 'network facing' features, because hackers can tamper with anything that respond through the internet.

Go to Network/Properties and uncheck all protocols that you do not use. A minimal configuration just needs TCP/IP v 4.

There are some services running on XP that you'll never use. See this article:

Note, you better write down the list of services that you disable, and what the original settings were - automatic or manual.

Go to Secunia and install their PSI program. This program will inspect your installed applications and notify you when one of them have security updates. You will want to run this weekly.

Also keep Windows Update on Automatic. Most patches nowadays are security related, and you do NOT want to delay installing them.

If your programs can work when using a non-admin account, then use a non-admin account for your daily activities. The administrator account is all powerful, and if someone successfully attacks a program running as admin, they will gain admin rights on your system too. Then it's game over.

Someone with physical access to your PC can do a lot of damage. So you should have a long and complex passphrase for logon. For example, the phrase "Kirk is the captain of the USS Enterprise" will become "kitcotusse". Throw in a number and it becomes "k444itcotusse". I recommend passphrases longer than 16 characters.

Part of keeping your Windows secure is to keep up with all security fixes. A lot of successful attacks are based on vulnerabilities that already have patches, just because people don't do Windows Update. Never fall behind on patches. This is especially important for XP, because unlike Vista or Win7, it doesn't have ASLR, services hardening and other technologies to foil attacks.

Security is part 'setup' and a lot of maintenance. To use a physical analogy, you want to lock a door to keep the room safe... Read more

Hello! I am on here out of frustration! I have tried soo many things. Over the past couple of days I notice my wifi speed has dropped tremendously. I unstalled my AV. Which did not make a difference. It was AVG for referance. I notice that the wifi is a little faulty on my iphone as well. Instagram, and Youtube will not load properly. But safari, Twitter work fine?! I notice the wifi signal will bounce from excellent connection, to fair.. It's weird. I also notice that ivp6 or whatever has no internet access.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

I have a belkin F5D9630-4 wifi box with security set at wpa/wpa2-personal(psk) auth set at wpa2-psk and encryption set at tkip

My old laptop with xp home on it works great with the wifi all websites come up fast with no problems

With this new Acer Aspire 5315 laptop on vista home basic sp1 I am having problems with the wifi

It connects fine and brings up most web sites with out any problem but some web sites like hotmail, yahoo mail, bebo etc just will not load on the wifi. If I plug it in with the wire it works fine but not on wifi.

I have called belkin about it and they say its something to do with the vista setting ????

Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong


A:Some websites will not work with belkin wifi

hmm seems to be a problem, might be your firewall being too high on the wifi connection. Secondly, belkin have a built in firewall so you dont really need a firewall on your system.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

This won't be a possible request. The Network Admin is in charge of your company network so he has all the permission to take control of your network. Having said that, I'm afraid that this Forum does not provide assistance in circumventing network protocols.

A:Block network to 1 computer

Some routers include in their settings the ability to define the function of the reset button. It can often be deactivated. But there are still other ways to reset it.

The best idea may be to simply remove the router and/or modem (or whatever you use to connect) from his access, either by putting it near you or locking it up in something or somewhere.

However, technical solutions to what are ultimately problems of discipline and authority will always come up somewhat short. Is it really a good idea to teach someone that the only reason he has to follow a rule or face a responsibility is that he has not yet figured out some way to get around it?

Whose house is it? Is anyone in charge?

I need to block the network Administrator from accessing a folder on my hard drive from the network server. This folder has to remain on my hard drive as it needs to be accessessible to people via the network, and I can handle permissions for the users, but cannot figure out how to deny permission to the network Administrator either through the server or my PC. We thought it was not accessible to the network Administrator on the server, but turns out it is. It is a Windows 2000 server and the PC with the hard drive I need blocked is Windows NT. Strange situation but urgent!
Another part of this is that I want to move this folder from my pc to the server, and also need to know if there is a way to deny permission to the network administrator also on the server itself - maybe just give myself and my boss permission? How? Is this possible?

Yes, you may block unwanted sites and restrict browsing hours from the router. Depending on the type of router that you have, some do have advanced features. Pls check out this link on how to set restrictions, including other ways too.

A Security/firewall device such as Sonicwall would do a lot more. The Content Filtering feature would be the best option for you. Of course this is just an option, it can be pricey.

Using ICS:
modem==[B]Primary[/B] computer===router---other PCs
the firewall on the Primary will control access of other devices, but it's a pain to configure AND the Primary must be running for anything else to have Internet Service (including even simple email).

the more typical layout
modem===router --- All devices
is far more practical but only the common router is available for access controls and
with the average home-router, it is limited in the number of keywords or urls that can be managed.

Each PC could have its own system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and block access with
a line per site (meaning everything at a given domain) like

Code: blocked_domain_name
but then you need to update all PCs with every change and recycle the DNS on each machine usingipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"​while effective, this technique is all-or-nothing, ie all users are denied uniformily

Instead of two nics for access to different networks and functions, would it be easier to have just one nic if you could find something that restricted all network traffic allowed in/.out of the NIC so it would only talk to networks you want and use remote services you want, etc.

Would that fill the need? You need one NIC and a firewall.

Okay, usually when you hover over the networks listed and available from the taskbar icon, you get a nice little window with a few helpful tidbits of info for each listed network when you mouse action hover over the names. It tells you the encryption type, and the SSID, plus a few other details.

Well, on my computer, the information is appearing behind the list to where I can't read it. The network list is overlapping on top of the hover info. Talk about annoying. I searched for various things on google, with no luck. I tried:

Windows 7 network list obscuring hover details, and various other combinations to no avail. Anyone here have a clue what might be breaking this? I'd like the hover details to appear properly so I can read it. In the meantime I've installed the free version of Acrylic Wifi to work around the issue. Thanks.

The problem must be driver based or an add-on program because I don't get any of that. All I get is the name and whether it's connected or not. Check that your adaptor driver is up to date and/or the program you use to display the data is up to date.

Sorry if this has already been discussed. Couldn't find on a search.

I have a small secured network in my office with a modem/router networking three computers wirelessly. I would like to add another router that would allow clients in the waiting room of my office to have internet access. Could you assist me in a setup or map? I already have a wireless Linksys router available to use as the second router.

Thank You

A:Adding Wifi Network to an Already Secured Network

Are those in the waiting room to be allowed into OR forbidden access to your Lan systems?

You already have

to Isolate the W.R from your lan, connect

Code: (assumed 192.168.1.x or 0.x)
+---new router (new channel+ssid+no encryption)
set LAN addresses and DHCP for 192.168.10.x

add firewall rule to ALL your existing LAN systems to deny src address range= thru 10.255

Two different devices, both only able to connect to Facebook and sometimes google.
Also unable to run updates on Windows Defender/Update.
Devices are fine on other networks.

Error message: No data received
- Able to ping websites.
- If I connect one device through VPN I can access everything.
- I have rebooted, flushed DNS, reset winsock entries, wireless network adapter - no fix

Am now updating the VPN machine, will check later on that one? Any suggestions?

Hi there
i am looking for software the routes different websites to different network devices

i have tethered my phone to my computer for Facebook at work, witch is blocked, and the work internet for everything else, how do i route Facebook to go through my phone and other stuff to go through the work net, automatically, without having to connect and disconnect network devices

thanks, bdman32

A:how do i route different websites to different network devices

I don't you can really do that...the closest you can come to a solution would be to use a web proxy or VPN software to go around the Facebook block and access it through your work Internet. Mind you, if they discover a VPN connection they won't be happy at all - so I'm not actually suggesting you do this.

I have a wireless network connecting my PC (winxp) using D-Link ADSL2+ router to my Laptop (winxp). The actual network is fine, I am able to access files on both machines from each other, BUT on the laptop I am able to download my emails but am NOT able to view any Websites. Is this some stupid setting I have not altered, am I being really thick?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you.

Hi I m usually able to find answers for any problems I encounter on here without needing to register on the Redirecting computers on network all websites and ask a question myself but I m having trouble with this one - I am in an office with computers Both of them suffer with the same problem which appears to be some kind of virus Essentially when I click on a link usually from google results I am re-directed onto a different random Redirecting websites on all computers on the network page If I open the link in a new tab I can click back until I reach my intended page but it is annoying that I have to do this and more of a concern is the reason why it is happening and what implications it might have that I don t know about The websites are various things sometimes as inocuous as eBay occasionally porn but more often than not websites such as google analytics adclicks gossipcenter etc - I have run MalwareBytes and also have Norton installed but nothing stops it - I purchased a third computer and have just connected to the internet To check the net worked I went to google did a search clicked on a link and lo and behold it got redirected to eBay The fact that this is a new computer and already it is happening makes me think that the virus malware is getting in earlier in the chain rather than hitting the individual PCs but my knowledge of this kind of thing is not good enough to know what to do Please help I m not really a computer expert I can carry out tests and return results but don t ask me to start interpreting codes logs or anything Thanks Tom

A:Redirecting websites on all computers on the network

What kind of router do you use in the office?
