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.)

Hello everyone
so I have gameserer hosting website
and all my server I rent them from some website
now I have 2 server in my home but I will sell it
and I want to buy new one
but I don't know what is the beast part I have to get it ?
should I get E5 or E3 ? and 1cpu or 2cpu ?
I will host on it some game and its MineCraft and some other game from valve
the other game from valve is
Counter 1.6,scours,go
Garry's mod
Team Fortress 2

so what is the largest server can I have so I can host as many as I can on it ? and about the price I don't care to much on it so if you can just give me something good
I think I will host at less 20-30 servers on it

so what can you advise me ?

A:Bulid servers for Game-Server

Well I would do some researching on what people use for their servers because I don't have much knowledge personally on game servers. What I can provide though is insight on how the parts differ.

A Xeon E5 is based on a completely server-oriented architecture while the E3 is supposedly just a more high-quality binned i7.

I would read up more on server hosting requirements/what is best more in depth than I did below, but the consensus seems to be that the E3 or E5 is fine with lots of RAM. Keep in mind, the E5 can have twice as much RAM as the E3. Another thing to keep in mind is whether the game is multi-threaded or single threaded and the tick-rate of the server. If you have more players and the game is multi-threaded (Minecraft isn't for example if I am not mistaken), then go for the E5 just to be safe.

I was researching online about the CS:GO server requirements and came across this forum post and they linked to this dedicated server wiki page. Since Garry's Mod, CS:GO, and TF2 run on the same engine, the requirements should technically be the same. Minecraft isn't really too demanding either so you should be fine basing the server on Source games. Here are the requirements for a Minecraft server. It seems to me like the servers don't need much horsepower.

Here is another useful forum thread that will provide the best insight.

I am looking into getting a phone in-line noise filter for my 56K modem line (NOT DSL). But I'm not sure how well these things work.

I contacted the phone company and they recommended to get one to try, if it works. The "noise" is not coming from the house line, it is from the line in the street that can't be fixed (Says the AT&T/Verizon).

So a phone line noise filter is my option right now. How well do these things work?

Thanks for the help.

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.



A:How do I block https(SSL) websites?

I think will also bypass your locks. You can check its IP address using ping or nslookup. You can also block its ip address using your host file.

hi i want to block certain sites from my computer and the others on the network through one computer using the admin privileges i have how can i do this.

A:Block a site on my computer network

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

A:Build hits aggravating road block

Have a very careful look around and under the motherboard, for short circuits to the case. The metal stand-offs are very easy to miss out, or fit one where it doesn't need to be. It's obvious, but take out graphic card and re-fit, make sure any buttons or catches are clicking into place. Remove RAM boards, and re-fit. Make sure all power cables are plugged into the motherboard, check motherboard manual to see if extra power plugs are needed by the CPU, (4 pin header type), or graphic card.

i have 2 servers which are running server 2003 r2 with sp2 enterprise addition. I had to restore them to a DRP enviroment so we can run some tests. they are linked into a hub and nothing else and i have set up their respective network properties correctly and given them their exact network settings as the live servers. the 2 servers cant see each other though. both machines can ping themselves but not the other one. i have tried to delete the driver in device manager and it automatically reinstalled them. i need them to see each other as this project is pretty urgent.... any help would be appreciated

A:Two servers can't see each other

sounds like you have isolated them from all other networks and just have

A hub has no DHCP service, so both systems need all static settings

If systemA has ipaddress x.x.x.10 and
sysB has x.x.x.20,
then the gateway on A is the B address and conversely
you will NOT be able to access the other machine using names; (there's no dns) so
everything will need IPaddresses = = = unless
you add entries into \windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS;
systemAname x.x.x.10

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if someone could possibly help with some question(s). I visit this board often for answers to questions and now I actually have one!

Basically, I have been asked to test three proxy servers as we recently discovered that of the 5, 3 of them could no longer reach the internet.

Could someone recommend or advise the best line of action to test be it with manual input or via 3rd party software if these servers are working correctly as proxy's, in terms of connecting to the internet?

Many thanks,

A:Testing proxy servers

that may be very difficult from here, as the specific proxy venders can have different rules in the configurations.

Recommend, you get all the products to be tested reinstalled on a test server using their default settings.
Add sufficient rules to only control access to a specific domain, eg

Retest all.

Once that is working again,
you need to carefully add one action at a time to all products
and iterate the development of the rule set until ALL have what you want.
Be sure to document any difficulties discovered along the way.

Then you are in a position to compare opertions, logging, ...

best wishes

A:Partition block size, Windows 7

With NTFS there is no means to set blocksize and the cluster size is adjusted automatically.

With Linux, yes, you set the blocksize and describe the partition in terms of count of blocks.

Okay so my friend owns a coffee shop. She has attracted many customers by offering free wifi in her shop.

Lately though, as usual, someone had to go and ruin it for everyone else, and start using that as their porn surfing location... so now my friend wants to implement some sort of content filter box so that she doesn't have to deal with people doing that.

So does anyone have any experience with this type of thing?
Could anyone recommend anything?

We're also interested in adding a Terms of Service page that you have to click 'I Agree' on before surfing.

Currently the only equipment in use is the cable modem and the aging Linksys wireless router... so I assume we're going to need some more equipment.

EDIT: Some people on my other favorite tech site have recommended that I look into something called OpenDNS... does anyone know anything about it?

A:Content filter for a hotspot?

OpenDNS is a controlled DNS so that junk doesn't get in and redirections are not possible.

Trivial to implement.

1) you need the login/password for your router
2) access the router address using your browser & login
3) set the OpenDNS addresses into the DNS settings AND​4) save the settings which will restart the router​after that, every system will use the OpenDNS addresses when then connect to that router.

From any system connected, you can prove this is working with run->cmd and enteripconfig /all​you will see

One of my friends wishes to purchase servers and his requirements are as follows. Can someone please recommend a HP server along with exact model and details specifications including URL which can help him select. Details available are:

Server #1: To be used as the main server for DNS, DHCP, and MS-Exchange server

Server #2: Will be used an a application server

Questions/more available information:
1) He wishes to have raid 3 or raid 5 for server # 2
2) How much total hard disk should be ok for each server
3) what should be the min. RAM for each server
4) He wishes to have internal tape back-up unit for server #2


A:Please recommend servers

He will have success with any computer sold as a Server. But he will likely have to install the extra RAID drives. Servers do not need a lot of Ram. You can get by with 512MB on up.
Internal tape back up is a separate unit you buy and install after market, but some servers come with them installed.
Installing and running servers is not rocket science, but it is difficult compared to a regular computer, and requires some reading and study, or experience on another server.

There are plenty of good books on Servers available on Amazon and a variety of good book stores... or from better libraries. You do not need the most recent book, but one that references Windows Server 2003 would be a good choice.

My son uses Ventrilo for online gaming, however, there is one server I would like to block his access to because it's a bit..."mature" for him. I have the IP address of the server as well as the port, I wonder if it would be possible to block it via the router, or the firewall running on his PC. The router is a Linksys and the current firewall is ZoneAlarm. I wouldn't be against changing to another firewall if that is necessary.

A:How to Block Access to Ventrilo Server

If you are running windows xp, you can:

Open the folder windows\system32\drivers\etc
Open the "Hosts" file using notepad
There should already be an entry of " localhost" in there
Just type in "<ip address of vent server> localhost" (without quotes)
If you have the dns address of the server then type " <server name>" (again without quotes)

This will prevent his computer from accessing that server.

Well, doing the mac only thing will keep ppl out for a shorter period of time than if you ran the wep and mac thing.

If you live in a rural area this might not matter much as there's a reduced risk of being noticed and targeted. If you live in a urban area you will probably be noticed.

Hi Mike,

Your problem seems to be in your firewall settings.
Temporarily disabling your firewall, and testing, should show .com sites load without error.

As you are a student, it is possible that the Admin who set up your computer has place restrictions on your user account.
Therefore creating a new Administrator user account should fix those issues, but you may need to approach your computer technical staff at uni (?) and confirm with them first. ie you do not want to upset any user network settings made by your school for you.

A:Hard Disk Bad Block

Run the disk checking utility (chkdsk) and tell it to scan for bad sectors. This will mark the sector bad so that Windows will avoid it in the future. After running the check, see which file the bad sector was in - the file is corrupt and you should replace it.

The Samsung hard disk utilities are called shdiag and hutil.

Q: Servers

im thinking about buying a server ,any thoughts would be helpful thanks.


First thought: you have no clue, do you?

How much money do you have?
What is the server supposed to do?
What are you going to install on it?
Where are you going to put the machine?
How many people are you going to provide the services to?
What services exactly are they going to be?
How important is uptime to you?
Are you sure you can't do it with a random old PC?

For my business I am assigned an IP address block; ending range is 50 - 55). Does all five of those IP addresses have to go to the same physical location? Or can it be split to different locations? If so, is that something I need to do on the server, or is that something my IP provider would have to do? I am so sorry if this sounds pretty stupid, but this is the first time I am dealing with an IP block and I am not to sure how to go about it. Thanks for any feedback


A:IP Adddress block

I take it you mean your ISP is giving you five STATIC IPs?
If that's the case, you usualy get some kind of equipment, like a UBR, to send those addresses to your routers. At least, that might be the easiest. Here in the office we have like 16 IPs. Each one has it's own router, the router, in turn, assigns IPs to whatever area we want. And we can set those node to be able to talk to each other, or not.
Like for example we have "black lines" for infected PCs which cannot communicate to any other systems in the office. And our public Internet PCs cannot communicate with our servers, etc...

Not sure if that's what you mean.

If you mean, send each IP to different locations in terms of having 5 different incoming "lines", I don't think so. All your IPs from your ISP still come in one line, but once they hit your switches or routers, you can physically take the cable anywhere.

Maybe we need some more info about the setup.

Good luck!

Heya simple question.

For game servers, like hosting counterstrike or battlefield 2 servers, what cpu will produce less latency.

A:opteron vs intel for game servers!

The network connection used on the game server is more likely to affect latency then any CPU. Lots of memory & eventually a set of RAIDed disks would also help.

I have 3 computers going through a router to a modem, and my question is can the router block my computers from going to sertain sites? I ask this because for some odd reason all of my computers on this network cannot get to a couple of diffrent websites, such as google and hotmail. If it is the router (which I doubt) how can i fix this? If it isnt, any ideas what it might be?

A:Can going through a router block internet sites?

If your router has a built in firewall then you could try disabling it. Also, make sure you have the latest firmware for your router. Check you haven't got some kind of virus/spyware that prevents you from accessing certain websites (though i dont think it's likely). Finally, check your browser compatibility.

Well, I am not really into gaming and I have never hosted a lan party similar to the one you are going to host, but I can answer one question...

The Cat6 Cabling won't make any difference...the speed and bandwidth is the same. From what I have heard Cat6 cabling's major benefit is preventing crosstalk (more reliable). Anyway if you have cat 5e cabling...stick with it.

I have a Linksys WRT54G router. 2 my laptops are running Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Router configured as follows
- Permit only PCs listed to access the wireless network (2 MACs entered)

Despite all these configuration steps network considered as "UNSECURED WIRELESS NETWORK".
What to do to make it secure?
Thank you.


The reason it says that is because you are not using WEP, WPA, etc to secure the network. If there was a network key required then it would say "secured" if not, it says "unsecured". It does not detect that you have mac filtering, only that you have no network key.

Your network is just as secure with mac filtering(probably more) than using WEP.
If you'd like to test this, just remove one of your mac addresses then try to access the network.

If you still want to secure it using a network key, just look in the section for wireless security, you should find encryption settings. Just enter a WEP key using 64 or 128 bit HEX, I'd not suggest using ascii and you might want to stick to 64 bit if you are using cross branded hardware.

A:PPPoE, TCP/IP VS DNS servers IPs

You do not need TCP/IP on the LAN connection. PPPoE works on the ethernet level, not TCP/IP.

And since you don't need TCP/IP on the LAN connection then there is no way to put in a DNS server address either.

You can test a DNS server by running nslookup with no parameters. Then put in the command "server <server name>" a la server Now you can query any internet names you like by just typing in the hostname. All the queries will go to the server you specified instead of your default one.

Q: Servers

Hi what kind of attacks and what are the measures to minimise these attacks on the following Servers:

Firewall & Anti-Virus Server
Internet Server
Back-Up Server

Any Help....

Cheers EnglishST


The attacks you would get on a firewall would be portscans and (D)DoS. Also exploits of bugs in the firewall software. Fancier fw software has measures against portscans and DoS builtin. Firewall has to be a special firewall machine. Nothing else but firewall on it and definently not running Windows. Patching the firewall software and the OS should be the absolute priority.
The best defence against DoS is to keep a low profile and not to anger script kiddies
A very good measure against DoS is to have alternative public IP address. So if you get a DoS based on IP address you can just change the IP behind your domain name and sidestep the rather dumb attacker.

What do you mean by Internet Server? A proxy server or a web server?

You should not get any attacks on anti-virus or backup servers. You have to set up your network so that nothing can access anything from outside world that they don't absolutely need to. I don't see a need to expose an anti-virus or a backup server to outside world. The security you would need on those machines would be shutting down all unnecessary services to ward off nosy local users. Keeping the software up to date is still important though.

I am doing a report for a Tech Class. We have to create a secure server for a goverment facility.

I was wondering what other peoples opnions are,would be the most secure server including it's o/s. This would be very helpful. Thank you.

A:Linux Servers..

Security is a pretty abstract concept. Nothing is really 100% secure unless no one ever sees it or uses it.

If you have to write an essay about security, then google search these topics:

public private key encryption
security permissions
users and groups
secure sockets layer
password attacks
dictionary attacks
port scanner
IP Spoofing
secure shell

the list kind of goes on forever and ever but basically theres a healthy mix of topics there to look at.

now, you need to work out what a government facility would be able to do. be protected from the outside? Well, probably not, because anything really secure that like would be protected from the rest of the world and not even given an internet connection. Security policy would be more focussed on internal employees, what groups you put users into and what groups can do. only system admins should be able to perform admin functions.

If I talk about this any more then I will be doing your homework for you, which I can't be assed with. But there's some ideas.

Believe it or not, there are some governments interested in running linux for security and so forth so if you google search on these things I am sure that you will find a story to pad this out with as well.

On the intake side, so the fan is sucking air through it would logically seem the way to go. Don't put those on exhaust fans either.

Make sure the veins on that filter are heading the same direction as your fan fins are as well.

A:Remote Management of Win2K Servers: Three Secure Solutions

SSH2 is a great solution for UNIX administration whether it's remote or not. I disable telnet, ftp, and similar on all of my systems. SSH2 with X-11 tunnelling works great with either Cygwin, Exceed, or similar!
On the other hand, I haven't had good results tunnelling VNC over SSH2. I've tried it between my RH 7.3 workstation and my Win2K laptop using a D-Link 10/100 Switch. The problem that I had was that the client would lock up and/or miss screen updates from the server. Direct VNC between the two worked great. I tried both the regular VNC and TightVNC with the same results. TightVNC did work a bit better (it lasted a minute before locking rather than 30 seconds).

If you're using OpenSSH I recommend the following: 1) Disable root logins, 2) Use shared key authentication over userid/password, and 3) Disable SSH1 protocol. You might also consider the added support/security of a non-open source SSH2 distro like F-Secure if you're in a corporate environment.

I'm not really sure about the advantages of using Zebedee over SSH2, if there are any. I don't see any known expoits for Zebedee while there have been several found for OpenSSH. You could look at this as either good or bad.

He's been checking this site occasionally to make sure that he's cut off (yes, paranoid) and occasionally he's getting through.

[*]You can NOT block port 80 as this is how your browser gets webpages!

MSN Messenger uses

port 1863 TCP/UPD

Because AIM and ICQ can switch port automatically, so you can not block them only by disable the ports in the firewall. We recommend you to block AIM/icq in two ways:

* 1). [COLOR="Red"]Block all AIM/ICQ server IP address.[/color]
* 2). Use firewall which has deep content inspection capabilities. Use firewall which has deep content inspection capabilities to block AIM/icq's P2P function.

The least powerful one has dual xeons at 450Mhz and weighs 325 lbs and is basicaly a mobile rack with lead acid battery backup 3 PSU's 16 (yes sixteen) Hard drives 10 of which are in an external bay.

The most powerfull ones have 16 RAM slots and quad P2's

Give me some good ideas! I may consider web hosting or becoming an ISP for my neighbors

I was wondering if there is any kind of software that can filter or modify your live video feed with your computer? Like for example, Mac has a program called Photobooth that edits the feed with different things like motion blurs, distortions, color changes, and just other random filters. To make it even funner, it doesn't JUST edit your video or your pictures, it edits hte feedback from your webcam. I dunno, it's kinda hard to explain what I'm trying to say. But if you DO understand what I mean, do you know any software that does this? Thanks for your help.

I hope this in the right forum, i couldn't find anywhere else to put it:

Does anyone here know of a good Newsgroup server thats reliable, and preferably in the UK? (for speed, as im in England, UK). I don't mind paying a small price per month either.

It must have "alt.biniaries" too.

Following on from that, what Newsgroup Software do you use, and do you think its any good, as im on the lookout for one.

Any links would be useful....

A:Newsgroup Servers & Programs???

I use ClaraNews, and have no problems with them...
Though when I ordered my account, there wasn't any download limitations...

But as the price is quite low, and the download quantity high, I don't have any problem recommending them...

There have been none server problems in the 6 months that I've used the service either....

Another news provider which seems to be good is EasyNews.... Some friends of mine use it, and they've found it to be, as the name implies, very easy It is webbased afaik, which eliminates any need for a newsgroup program...

Personally I use GrabIt, as it suits most of my needs... (Even though it doesn't support posting messages... :-/)


Hope this helps

Hi I had a question about msn. If you add a person and delete and block them right away do they see that you wanted to add them? because if you log into msn and someone added you you will see it.

A:MSN add and block

I`ve never used MSN, but I would imagine that, yes the person will be alerted to the fact that you wanted to add them.

If I`m wrong, no doubt someone here will put me straight lol.

In the meantime, You could always Google for an answer.

Is there any services/utilities in windows xp or any applications out there that prevent specified processes from running on your computer at any time, not necessarily startup? Like, for example.. if I never wanted to have "mspaint.exe" running on my taskmanager could I have it blocked permanently so it could never run?

A:Services used to block processes

Group Policy Editor in Windows Xp Professional
And, Start-->Run-->Services.msc (for things like disable Help; Printers so forth)

Thank you for your help!

A:Help to block all sites


The internet isnt my strongest subject but in theory you could set up a VPN to the only website they are allowed to access, which wont allow access to other sites (i think haha). I will check and see if there is a group/local policy that you can use also.

Okay, my friend has ran into a problem with the blocking and keep blocking thing in Windows XP. He pressed Keep Blocking on accident and can't get the game back. We've looked for ways to unblock it but can't find it. We tried reinstalling it, but it still is blocking it. Is there anyway you can unblock anything?

Microsoft's decision to forgo user control over security updates in favor of mandatory, automatically installed updates in Windows 10 Home edition was a point of contention when the news was revealed earlier this month.

This is going to make July 29th, 2015, go down in history as Black Wednesday for MS (as well as the succeeding weeks) and just totally bork the Win10 rollout and cause public backlash like Vista did. Millions of customers who upgrade will potentially have any forced driver update causing a broken system or other issues.

Hello, I currently use the programs: hyperterminal, enervista, and acselerator quick set to monitor if some filters are working. In hyperterminal I use the "met" command to see the current these filters have, and if the current of phase A, B, and C do not have a difference of 4 amperes, then I know the filter is working correctly. However, I need to check each filter individually because I have to login and set an ip address and port to check each filter. Is there a way so that I can check every filter at the same time? (without having to login to every single one of them, or that I just login once and then I can check the filters without having to login again).

I appreciate any help.


A:Hyperterminal monitoring filter automatically

Have you tried creating separate connections, one for each phase as long as the IP's, and ports are different for each phase.

Then you can run multiple connections in HyperTerminal.

So, one day Windows 8.1 froze totally and I could only move mouse pointer. I holded power button to shut it down and turned it on again. It showed the logo and loading circle and couldn't go further. I reinstalled windows and wi-fi driver suddnely didn't work. I looked for solution when windows blocked again and could't start, so I reinstalled it once more, formating discs again. I finnaly managed to find new wi-fi driver through my phone and it worked. But when I rebooted it froze and I could only move my mouse. I reinstalled windows once more, installed only wi-fi driver and then it rebooted itself and can't startup. Now I only get black screen with pointer after it &quot;tries to automatucly fix itself&quot;. I really need a solution before I smash it against the wall. Also, is it possible that some hard drive is broken?

A:Unusual crash/block

Hi helpme-.- :)

We could indeed check if your hard drive is failing, but first, we'll need to boot in Windows. Is this a computer or a laptop?
