1. Avast! Free Antivirus

Meeting again with Avast!, but now, in spotlight is the Free Avast! Antivirus. This is, in my opinion, the best free antivirus available. In the free version, all you have to do is register (for free) once a year and you get top notch protection on your computer, emails, downloads and IMs. It has a powerful heuristics engine that allows it to find almost every virus around. The experience gathered over the years (since 1988) by its developers shows really well in Avast!

2. Panda Cloud Antivirus

I must admit that Panda antivirus does not differentiate itself from other free antivirus software in any way when it comes to protection. It offers the same level of detection from viruses, trojan, spyware, adware, worms and malware and its features are not that specific. The thing that made Panda Cloud Antivirus the second position in my list is the fact that it is, as the name suggests, Cloud based. What that means, is that when you scan your computer, it doesn’t use resources from your computer, but it operates in the cloud, keeping your computer working as normal.

How to Create a Dropdown Menu in CSS?

09 Aug
Share in top social networks!

Hey guys! Are you tired searching the Net a tutorial on how to make a simple drop-down menu in your website but all of those were difficult to learn and its complicated because it uses different scripts. But today, here is a simple tutorial on how to create a simple drop down menu in CSS without the help of Javascript or any other scripting language. Below is the final sample output.

First, we need to create the HTML document to create menu and sub-menus using Unordered List. Then, we will create the CSS script and link to the HTML document we’ve created to format the said menus. Here is the sample HTML code:

Save this as index.html and you try to run or execute this in your browser without  our CSS script, this will be the initial output:

And now we are ready to create the CSS script and apply it with our HTML code. First, we need to remove the list symbol and aligned them in the left. Here is the CSS code:

The code “list-style:none” will remove the list symbol and set to zero both the margin and padding to align them to the left. Below is the sample output:

Next thing to do is to align or position the main menu to horizontal line same with the submenu which will be placed below its main menu. Insert the code below in your CSS :

Here the value of the display property should be block so that all the lists both the main and sub-lists will be displayed horizontally. This will be the output in your browser.

Next thing to do is to temporary set the submenu to INVISIBLE. Why? Because, it will just appear if we’re going to put the  mouse over the menu which they belong. To to that, add the following code in your CSS:

The selector li and ul indicates the submenu in our HTML tag, then the “display:none”, this will temporarily set the submenu invisible in the browser. This is the sample output in your browser:

So, its time to make our menu and submenu more decorative, we will add some formatting scripts. Add this to your code:

The “display:block” displays the menu and submenu to a rectangluar form. As you click the menu “About TutGeeks”, the submenu will not appear, because it is still  invisible in your browser. The image below is the output once you inserted the code above.

And now, this the magic part of this tutorial. We will now try to make the sub-menu VISIBLE once we clicked its main menu. We will just use the pseudo code HOVER for the list since all of these are links. Below is the code:

The pseudo-code “li:hover” is applied in the main menu while the selector ul indicates the lists or sub-menus. If you see in our previous code, inside the selectors li ul, the display value was set to none, so the sub-menu went to invisible. But this time, we will now set the display property to block so that it will appear horizontally or in rectangular forms. See the image below:

So as you can see, the sub-appeared as we put the mouser over the main menu. Now, its time to apply active selection such as applying background color as we select both the main menu or sub-menu. We will also set same length of the sub-menus.

First we will apply hover effect to the main menu. Try this:

We will use the pseudo-code “li:hover” since the main menu were lists and the selector “a”  indicates that the color will be applied to all links including the sub-menus as you can see simple output below:

                    

So, to apply also hover effects to the sub-menu to indicate selections, we will also put a background color to it. See the sample image output below:

To do this, we will just simply  apply the pseudo-code hover to all the links of the sub-list (sub-menu) of the main lists (main menu). Confuse? Try this:

To explain this, the pseudo-code “li:hover” indicates the main menu while the selector li indicates the sub-lists. If this sub-list is a link, then the hover effect will be applied. See the sample output above.

Finally, we will now set the length of the sub-menu be consistent like the image below.

Insert this code:

 

There you have it guys. Congratulations! You made your first drop-down menu using pure CSS code script. Like this guys if you like this tutorial! Happy programming.

Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7 or Vista

03 Aug
Share in top social networks!

Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the built-in Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?

The account is created in Windows 7 or Vista, but since it’s not enabled you can’t use it. If you are troubleshooting something that needs to run as administrator, you can enable it with a simple command.

Note: You really shouldn’t use this account for anything other than troubleshooting. In fact, you probably shouldn’t use it at all.

Enable Built-in Administrator Account

First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

image

Now type the following command:

net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)

You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.

Disable Built-in Administrator Account

Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:

net user administrator /active:no

The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.

03 Aug
Share in top social networks!

Freeware ToolsFreeware are basically software applications which are used to enhance your work on your computer, saving you a lot of time and energy. With the advent of computer age and networking, works in digital media can be modified, copied and distributed instantaneously. Freeware creators usually retain the copyrights or the license of the work in contrast to Open source software. It means that one cannot modify the source code. But the good news is that the freeware is allowed to be distributed and can be used for free of charge or at an optional fee by whoever wishes to use it for an unlimited period of time. Thus, it gives the maximum benefit to the end user.

Once you determine that a particular freeware is safe and is from a trusted company, it can do wonders to your work. Today, there are thousands of freeware available that people no longer prefer buying software. Freeware junkies are as many as the number of freeware software available. Here are some less-known freeware to make your Windows experience even more worthwhile.

1. Mozilla Thunderbird

Thunderbird has come as a rescue for those who desperately need an alternate to Microsoft’s Outlook Express. It is an easy-to-use interface, flexible and is a stable email application. It’s fully customizable just like the Firefox browser (though has limited themes) and would serve as a great add-on to your computer. It works well with both Windows and Mac OS. And guess what? It’s absolutely free. Well, what else can you ask for?

2. Team Viewer

Team Viewer is a very popular and an effective screen sharing software allowing you to remotely share your screen, mouse, keyboard to another computer when both are connected through internet. It is designed for personal use (non-commercial) and if needed very often, install it rather than running the software. It also integrates file transfer among both the partners participating in the session. Apart from sharing files, you can also carry a text chat and with its new beta version, you can also carry voice and video chat. And most importantly, it’s free requiring no sign-ups.

3. Softmaker Office 2008

Ever considered replacing Microsoft’s Office Suite? Yes. Then you need to definitely try Softmaker Office 2008. It is far more stable than Openoffice.org (another freeware substitute). It’s really fast and is available with Windows, Pocket PC’s and Linux (including Ubuntu). It contains a basic maker, Presentation, Text maker and Plan maker. It’s tools are generally compatible with files in the older Microsoft Office formats, though not with the latest Microsoft Office. It’s useful features provide you everything you will need.

4. MalwareBytes Anti-malware

You seriously cannot do without a security solution to your computer. Given that there are many such protection and malware removal tools in the market/net today, would you mind installing a free, simple yet powerful anti-malware tool? I know, You wouldn’t. Malware Bytes Anti-malware (MBAM) is an effective solution to detect and remove various numbers of malware and spyware. Very easy to set-up, this free application updates itself on a regular basis providing full scans for all the drives. Though it gives live protection only to its registered users, it is a great tool to have on your PC.

What is Computer Hacking?

03 Aug
Share in top social networks!

Computer hacking is the practice of modifying computer hardware and software to accomplish a goal outside of the creator’s original purpose. People who engage in computer hacking activities are often called hackers. Since the word “hack” has long been used to describe someone who is incompetent at his/her profession, some hackers claim this term is offensive and fails to give appropriate recognition to their skills.

Computer hacking is most common among teenagers and young adults, although there are many older hackers as well. Many hackers are true technology buffs who enjoy learning more about how computers work and consider computer hacking an “art” form. They often enjoy programming and have expert-level skills in one particular program. For these individuals, computer hacking is a real life application of their problem-solving skills. It’s a chance to demonstrate their abilities, not an opportunity to harm others.

Since a large number of hackers are self-taught prodigies, some corporations actually employ computer hackers as part of their technical support staff. These individuals use their skills to find flaws in the company’s security system so that they can be repaired quickly. In many cases, this type of computer hacking helps prevent identity theft and other serious computer-related crimes.

Computer hacking can also lead to other constructive technological developments, since many of the skills developed from hacking apply to more mainstream pursuits. For example, former hackers Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson went on to create the UNIX operating system in the 1970s. This system had a huge impact on the development of Linux, a free UNIX-like operating system. Shawn Fanning, the creator of Napster, is another hacker well known for his accomplishments outside of computer hacking.

In comparison to those who develop an interest in computer hacking out of simple intellectual curiosity, some hackers have less noble motives. Hackers who are out to steal personal information, change a corporation’s financial data, break security codes to gain unauthorized network access, or conduct other destructive activities are sometimes called “crackers.” This type of computer hacking can earn you a trip to a federal prison for up to 20 years.

If you are interested in protecting your home computer against malicious hackers, investing in a good firewall is highly recommended. It’s also a good idea to check your software programs for updates on a regular basis. For example, Microsoft offers a number of free security patches for its Internet Explorer browser.

Download Free Microsft Excel eBook Tutorial for Free (Beginner and Advanced Users)

Share in top social networks!

Microsoft Excel is a commercial spreadsheet application written and distributed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. It has been a very widely applied spreadsheet for these platforms, especially since version 5 in 1993, and it has almost completely replaced Lotus 1-2-3 as the industry standard for spreadsheets. Excel forms part of Microsoft Office. The current versions are 2010 for Microsoft Windows and 2011 for Mac OS X.

Microsoft Excel has the basic features of all spreadsheets, using a grid of cells arranged in numbered rows and letter-named columns to organize data manipulations like arithmetic operations. It has a battery of supplied functions to answer statistical, engineering and financial needs. In addition, it can display data as line graphs, histograms and charts, and with a very limited three-dimensional graphical display. It allows sectioning of data to view its dependencies on various factors from different perspectives (using pivot tables and the scenario manager). It has a programming aspect, Visual Basic for Applications, allowing the user to employ a wide variety of numerical methods, for example, for solving differential equations of mathematical physics, and then reporting the results back to the spreadsheet. It also has a variety of interactive features allowing user interfaces that can completely hide the spreadsheet from the user, so the spreadsheet presents itself as a so-called application, or decision support system (DSS), via a custom-designed user interface, for example, a stock analyzer, or in general, as a design tool that asks the user questions and provides answers and reports. In a more elaborate realization, an Excel application can automatically poll external databases and measuring instruments using an update schedule, analyze the results, make a Word report or Power Point slide show, and e-mail these presentations on a regular basis to a list of participants.
