Q: On Microsoft Lumia 650 the newest model how to block private numbers?

On the old lumia 650 you could block numbers even private ones, the newer model doesn't seem to have this facility?

Preferred Solution: On Microsoft Lumia 650 the newest model how to block private numbers?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I have a question for a security junkie.

In a typical PKI model, a sender of a message may encrypt the message using a public key, and the recipient can decrypt the message using his private key.

My question is: Can a person decrypt the message using the public key? Apparently the answer is no, but I don't understand why this is. It seems to me that if you have the means to encrypt something, than you should be able to decrypt it with the same info.

Thanks!

Hello my dear forum friends I've recently discovered that my children have been evading my parental control blocks by utilizing the browsers private browsing feature I'm using my wireless gateway block Browsing we - it? Private can device to block certain sites during certain times days or completely I decide which sites to block by viewing what sites my kids are going to via Windows Live Family Safety However recently I noticed that a couple of the computers have been showing no logs whatsoever and this is impossible because FS is turned on on all computers they use and they do virtual public school That means that they are on the computer all day long so no logs are impossible Anyway I've found an addon for Firefox that disables private browsing and I edited the toolbar file in Opera per a user forum post to block it in Opera but I'm not really sure if that's working yet or not and I still need to block Chrome and IE Does anyone have any ideas or knowledge Private Browsing - can we block it? of how to completely block private browsing capability from all browsers Another solution is for me to Private Browsing - can we block it? find a full proof solution for one browser and remove all others however sometimes certain things for their school work on one browser but not the other and they have to have the ability to see and use school content Thanks

A:Private Browsing - can we block it?

You can disable private browsing in Chrome and IE with a reg tweak. If you decide to do this, then please make sure to make a system restore point before merging the reg file.
 
To run a registry script:
§  Click the Windows Start Orb in the bottom-left
§  In the search box, type notepad, then click on Notepad to open it
§  Copy and paste the following text into the notepad document:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome]
"IncognitoEnabled"=dword:00000000
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Privacy]
"EnableInPrivateBrowsing"=dword:00000000
§  Click on File, then Save As...
§  Click on your Desktop as the save location, then in the file name box type: fix.reg.
§  Click save and close the notepad document.
§  Double-click the file fix.reg on your desktop.Note: If prompted by User Account Control, select Yes or Allow so the fix can continue.
§  A message will appear about adding information into the registry, click Yes when prompted.
§  A prompt should appear that the information was added successfully.Note: If not, please note the error message and post it in your next reply.
§  Right-click on fix.reg and click Delete, then click Yes to confirm.
 
You may want to note that this will disable private browsing for all users on the computer. If you want one specific user disabled then log into that account and replace the above script with this one (the rest of the instructions stay the same):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome]
"IncognitoEnabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Privacy]
"EnableInPrivateBrowsing"=dword:00000000

AMD Athalon XP 2900+ has a speed of 2.0GHz, 2600+ is 2.10GHz and 2700+ is 2.17GHz. So which is a speedier processor,the one with a higher model number or the one with a higher GHz.Why a higher model number has a lower GHz? Does anybody know the key to this confusion.Recently at a trade show in Boston I asked a tech at the AMD booth.He said when chips are made many don't turn out to be the one aimed for.So not to waste chips with a different speed is given a new model number??

I ordered an nvidia fx5200 and it came with some funky dms-59 output connector...tried to check the nvidia site and they say "they don't manufacture cards, only chips" which seems totally wrong, as my card says "nvidia" right on it

anyway, I need a vga connection - which everything I could find said the fx5200 has - but this card only has the dms-59 connector (which seems very rare)

anyone know of a listing of fx5200 model numbers, so you know what to order and what you will get?...I ordered this from ascendtech (which may be part of the problem)

tia
 

A:Are there model numbers for the fx5200 cards?

They make the GPU but not the actual card. Are you sure that isn't a DVI connector? Did your card come in a retail box? A DVI to VGA adapter usually comes with it but if not, you can buy them separately.

I have 2 contacts with very similar phone numbers. For example:
Person1: 031 111 111
Person2: 041 111 111
When I get the call from Person2, my phone displays the name of Person1. When Person1 is calling me, the displayed name is OK.
So, I assume that the system is checking the phone numbers from right to left and because the numbers are very similar from the end it links the number with the first person on my contact list.
I've notice this problem since the last updates.
Can anyone help me with this issue because it's getting very annoying.

I found the SMS filter without an issues, but there does not appear to be any way to block a number.

February Microsoft on Tuesday warned of two security issues that could put some Windows users at risk of attack and said it is investigating a third possible vulnerability One security problem is reminiscent of the recent high-profile security woes that affected Windows It is related to how aging versions of Internet Explorer handle malformed Windows Meta File images on the Windows Millennium Edition and Windows operating systems The flaw exists only in IE with Service Pack on Windows and IE Newest WARNINGS.. Microsoft with Service Pack on Windows ME Microsoft said in a security advisory Users could be attacked simply by viewing a malicious image on a Web site in an e-mail or in an image viewer Microsoft said quot An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of the affected system quot Microsoft said in its advisory Though the WMF vulnerability may appear similar to previous flaws related to WMF that plagued Windows the issue is different Microsoft said Last month the software maker rushed out a fix for Newest Microsoft WARNINGS.. a WMF rendering flaw that was being exploited to install spyware on the computers of unwitting Windows users To remedy this new WMF problem Microsoft recommends users upgrade to IE with Service Pack and said it may issue a security patch In a second security advisory Microsoft warned of a problem with overly permissive access controls in Windows XP and Windows Server The problem exists only in versions that do not have the latest service packs installed the company said The access control issue could be exploited by a user with low privileges to run programs and commands that normally require a higher privilege level Microsoft said The software maker suggests installing Service Pack on Windows XP or Service Pack on Windows Server to limit exposure or manually changing access controls on the four affected Windows components Attack code that takes advantage of the flaw is publicly available A successful attack could give an attacker full control over a vulnerable computer security monitoring company Secunia said in an alert However the scope is limited because the vulnerable software is used only by software developers and is not part of Windows according to Microsoft quot Microsoft s initial investigation has revealed that customers who have not installed the HTML Help SDK on their systems are not impacted by this report quot the representative said Microsoft s next quot patch Tuesday quot is on Feb The company on Thursday is expected to release some details on what software fixes it will deliver nbsp

the problem is i can't see the newest emojis people are posting on facebook.
 
i don't rely use them my self but a lot of people seem to like to use emojis instead of actual words and it makes it hard to understand what they are saying when half of each of their sentences are just squares.
 
at first i thought it might be a facebook issue
but after some testing and such i discovered that i couldn't see the emojis on any website...
 
this lead me to a chrome adon that did allow me to see about half of them.... but not all of them... and the adon used its own custom looking emojis that were really big and ugly.
 
 
finally after doing some more research to try and find some thing else to replace that with i found out that my font list is out of date and needs updated to the current unicode font list.

A:How do i download the newest fonts so i can see the newest unicode emojis

You could have a look here -  http://symbolcodes.tlt.psu.edu/web/unicode.html

What I want is the most secured pc possible disabling all the network connections except my private network made with hamachi I use it to play games on lan with my friend but when I get malicious tools from internet all my system is f ed up and I need to reinstall windows softwares and all my games one by one -I use the standard windows firewall my computer is xp pro SP -I deleted every web browser I had explorer not completely removed -Our hamachi network is secured with a password only the two of us using it -I plan on freezing my system partition after making all the changes needed deepfreeze So how can I reinforce my pc security without buying an AV that will ruin me What setting should I change in my firewall or is there a better one aviable for but hamachi block all to network connections private network? How not free Is there an alternative to freezing my system since I need to turn it off even for the smallest change Hope you can help me on this nbsp

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:

http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/security/?p=354

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

Microsoft Withdraws Private Folder App
By Nate Mook, BetaNews
July 14, 2006, 6:49 PM
Following a barrage of criticism from security experts and IT administrators, Microsoft has withdrawn its new Private Folder application. The program was introduced last week as a free download for those who verify their operating system as genuine through Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage Program.

Private Folder was designed to hide data from the hard drive in addition to protecting it with a password. However, the application quickly drew concern from administrators who feared users would lose their password and not be able to unlock their files. In addition, parents voiced worry that kids could use Private Folder to hide content they download.Click to expand...

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.
Pls help. It is affecting my communication as my phone is down most of the time now

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

If you know the KB number, any search engine will do,

Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Update for Windows 7 (KB2534366)

You can also look here,
