How to Hack Windows 7 and Vista to Extend The Evaluation Period 4 Times

Windows 7 is going to continue the trend of rearm process in Windows 7 as well, that they did in Windows Vista. So here is a guide how you can increase the evaluation trail period by three times or more explicitly 120 days.


1. Install Windows 7 without any product activation key.

2. After installation is completed, use Windows 7 for 30 days and wait for the remaining days left to activate Windows counting down to 0, or almost zero.

3. When the activation grace period (or evaluation trial period) is almost expired log on to Windows 7 desktop, and open a Command Prompt window( type Cmd in Start Search and hit Enter)

4. Type
slmgr.vbs –rearm

5.Reboot Windows 7 to enjoy another 30 days of free usage without worrying about activation nor even need to crack Windows 7.

When the activation grace period countdown timer almost running down to 0 again, repeat the rearm trick to enjoy another 30 days of Windows 7 for free. User can run the rearm command for maximum of 3 times.

Windows Vista slmgr.vbs Configuration

slmgr.vbs is an important feature in Windows Vista. Lemme tell you what other things you can achieve with it.

  • -ipk Product Key Install enterprise license key (where Product Key represents the actual key) to enable KMS host functionality.
  • -dli Display license information.
  • -ato Attempt immediate activation.
  • -sprt port Set KMS host listening port (where port is the port ID).
  • -sdns Enable dynamic DNS publishing (default).
  • -cdns Disable dynamic DNS publishing.
  • -cpri Set KMS processor priority to low.
  • -spri Set KMS processor priority to normal (default).
  • -xpr Display the date when the activation will expire.

Hack Windows Vista Activation

How miserly is that Windows Vista gives you only one month of trial for a whole damn Operating system? I can understand it for a registry cleaner or an antivirus software. But for an OS, isn't it too low? So here is a legal way to increase it and forget about registering by pay.

  1. check the activation expiry date with the command: slmgr -xpr
  2. Go to bottom left corner
  3. Navigate to this path:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SL
  4. Double-click SkipRearm and change the value to 1.
  5. Note: this registry hack does not make any sense on a machine which has already been activated!
  6. Now remember to run the 30 day extension command: slmgr -rearm
  7. Restart the machine. After it reboots, run slmgr -xpr and check the expiry date.
  8. Check the registry setting SkipRearm, slmgr resets the value to zero.

[Note: we don't encourage you to use these techniques (taken from because we do not practice them ourselves. But if you do, don't forget to leave a feedback and also before playing with the registry do not forget to make a backup]

Facebook Hack: How to See the Album of Any Private User

Facebook has grown stupendously popular over the years. While privacy is a thing of assurance for some, it is annoyance for most. So here is a trick that will help you to see any locked profile. This trick will let you see anyone’s tagged photos even if they are private for you.


Step1: Log into facebook and don't worry about making another account. They will not be able to trace you down and ban you.

  • Find the person's unique profile ID.
  • Search for them and click view friends or send message.
  • Write the unique ID from the address bar (only the numbers) or copy it somewhere else.

Step3: Now that you have your unique profile ID you can use the next two links to view a total of 40 tagged photos:
If you wish to see tagged photos added by others use this link:[Unique ID]&id=[Unique ID]
If you wish to see tagged photos added by themselves use this link:[Unique ID]&id=[Unique ID]
Each link contains two places for [Unique ID] you simply replace this with the person’s unique ID that you have copied at the first step.
REMOVE THE BRACKETS IN [UNIQUE ID] .. replace that whole thing with the profile ID you copied.
Step4: You can now see up to 40 photos of someone on a private profile. Enjoy.

Tips for buying Pendrive

Very Important :

Some chinese pendrives of 32 gb capacity are there in the market. Make sure ther are not Fake.
When u try to copy the data more than ..say 4gb then it will get corrupted...It happened with many people with 32 Kingston pendrive. The company website didn't even had this model of 32 gb capacity.

It's a fraud, Please do not buy 32GB Kingston USB 2.0 Flash Drive.
its only up to 16 GB available with Kingston.
Before buying check for Serial no.

Service Centre no. +91 44- 42015215 [India]

Identify how you'll use a pen drive. Typically, they're used to copy large amounts of data from one computer to another. Note that copying files or folder with your pen drive is comparatively faster.

Remember that pen drives are mostly compatible with Windows (ME/2000/XP), Mac OS (8.6 and above) and Linux Kernel (2.4 and above) without drivers.

Note that the pen drives have different capacities. Normally, pen drives can hold between 32 MB and 2 GB. Older versions have 64 MB, 128 MB and 256 MB of storage capacity. Most older ones have now been taken off the market by reputed brands. If you want to store regular data files and excel sheets, a 512 MB memory pen drive is ideal. If you want to store video clips, MP3s and other large files, choose one with 1 GB or 2 GB.

Check to see if the pen drive you want can be password protected. The latest models can. You can choose to protect specific data within the drive for additional security.

Learn more about the features and prices of various pen drives by referring to online buyer’s guides. Browse through reviews and compare prices. Some popular buyer’s guides are NexTag, Windows Marketplace, MySimon and Epinions

Browse through blogs and tech discussion forums. These are good avenues for gathering more information on features, trends and other insights on pen drives.

Only buy a pen drive after comparing prices in different stores online and offline. Search for online vendors using engines like Google or Yahoo. Browse through popular online stores such as CompUSA, Best Buy and Circuit City

Confirm the pen drive's warranty and guarantee period. Usually, they come with a year’s warranty.

# A pen drive is also called a flash drive, keychain drive, key drive, USB key, USB stick and memory key.
# Make sure the pen drive is easy to handle. Some pen drives can be difficult because of their size.
# Ensure that your computer has a USB port before buying a pen drive.
# Pen drives are plug-n-play for OS Windows XP and higher. If you are using lower versions, you will have to install the driver using the installation CD.
# Avoid direct sunlight or heat when using your pen drive. It can diminish its efficiency in the long run.

Is this Apple's iPhone Nano that will be Announced at Macworld 2009?

The rumors of the iPhone Nano is back and this time with the photo of the iPhone Nano case.
iDealsChina who has published the information and rendering of the iPhone Nano case manufactured by a Chinese case manufacturer, XSKN claims that the product will be announced at Macworld San Francisco 2009

iPhone App - Pull My Finger
The Chinese case manufacturer, XSKN are the same folks who had leaked the photos of Apple's iPhone 3G case with a curved back before it was launched.

iDealsChina has provided few details about iPhone Nano's specification to back up it claims.
They claim that the new iPhone Nano will be of the same height as iPod Nano and will include "3 sensors, camera, [and a] mirror screen but no 3G."
iPhone Nano case
Though I have always maintained that Apple needs to expand its offering to be a serious player in the mobile space, it seems unlikely that Apple would release an iPhone Nano which would look like the one shown in the photo above.
Here are some of the reasons why I think its unlikely:
  • The so-called iPhone Nano's screen is too small to use iPhone's virtual keyboard.
  • It is unlikely that Apple would trust a vendor who had leaked the photos of the iPhone 3G case to give them details of their upcoming product.
  • The smaller screen will have issues for iPhone apps that are currently developed for iPhone's 3.5 inch screen.
But, it is finally good to see some activity on the rumors leading up to Macworld San Francisco 2009.

This is not the first iPhone Nano rumor, we had got a glimpse of the so-called iPhone Nano UI last year.

What do you think about the latest news about iPhone Nano? Any reason which makes you believe that this is a rumor or photo of the new iPhone Nano?

Removing the problem of System Hang at Startup

If your system hangs about 2 or 3 minutes at startup, where you can't access the Start button or the Taskbar, it may be due to one specific service (Background Intelligent Transfer) running in the background. Microsoft put out a patch for this but it didn't work for me. Here's what you do:

1. Click on Start / Run, type 'msconfig', then click 'OK'.
2. Go to the 'Services' tab, find the' Background Intelligent Transfer 'service, disable it, apply the changes & reboot.

This problem with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service should have been corrected in Windows update Q 314862, part of Service Pack 1.

Remove Annoying Delete Confirmation Messages - Windows XP

Although not strictly a performance tweak I love this fix as it makes my machine ‘feel’ faster. I hate the annoying ‘are you sure?’ messages that XP displays, especially if I have to use a laptop touchpad to close them. To remove these messages:

    1. Right-click on the ‘Recycle Bin’ on the desktop and then click ‘Properties’ 2. Clear the ‘Display Delete Confirmation Dialog’ check box and click ‘Ok’If you do accidently delete a file don’t worry as all is not lost. Just go to your Recycle Bin and ‘Restore’ the file.

Ensure XP Is Using DMA Mode for Faster Performance

XP enables DMA for Hard-Drives and CD-Roms by default on most ATA or ATAPI (IDE) devices. However, sometimes computers switch to PIO mode which is slower for data transfer - a typical reason is because of a virus. To ensure that your machine is using DMA:

    1. Open ‘Device Manager’ 2. Double-click ‘IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers’ 3. Right-click ‘Primary Channel’ and select ‘Properties’ and then ‘Advanced Settings’ 4. In the ‘Current Transfer Mode’ drop-down box, select ‘DMA if Available’ if the current setting is ‘PIO Only’

Free Up Memory in Windows XP

I found this useful app via FixMyXP. ClearMem is an Excellent Tool for speeding up your XP Computer (especially if your system has been on for awhile and you have a lot of applications open). What it does, is it Forces pages out of physical memory and reduces the size of running processes if working sets to a minimum. When you run this tool, the system pauses because of excessive high-priority activity associated with trimming
the working sets. To run this tool, your paging file must be at least as large as physical memory. To check your Paging File:

  1. Go to your control panel, then click on ‘System’, then go to the ‘Advanced’ Tab, and Under ‘Performance’ click ‘Settings’ then the ‘Advanced’ Tab
  2. On the Bottom you should see ‘Virtual Memory’ and a value. This is the value that must be at least as large as how much memory is in your system
  3. If the Virtual Memory Value is smaller than your system memory, click Change and change the Min Virtual Memory to a number that is greater than your total system memory, then click ‘Set’ and Reboot
  4. Once you have rebooted install ClearMem

Speed Up Boot Times in Windows XP

This tweak works by creating a batch file to clear the history and temp folders everytime you shutdown so that your PC does not waste time checking these folders the next time it boots. It's quite simple to implement:

       1. Open Notepad and create a new file with the following entries:

     * RD / S / q "C: \ Documents and Settings" username without quotes "\ Local Settings \ History"
     * RD / S / q "C: \ Documents and Settings \ Default User \ Local Settings \ History"
     * RD / S / q "D: \ Temp" <- "Deletes temp folder, type in the location of your temp folder"

       2. Save the new as anything you like but it has to be a '. Bat' files eg fastboot.bat or deltemp.bat

       3. Click 'Start' then 'Run'

       4. Type in 'gpedit.msc' and hit 'ok'

       5. Click on 'Computer Configuration' then 'Windows Settings'

       6. Double-click on 'Scripts' and then on' Shutdown '

       7. Click 'Add' and find the batch file that you created and then press' Ok '

When your PC starts it usually looks for any media in any bootable floppy or CD-ROM drives you have installed before it gets around to loading the Operating System from the HDD. This can waste valuable time. To fix this we need to make some changes to the Bios.

    1. To enter the bios you usually press' F2 'or' delete 'when your PC starts
    2. Navigate to the 'Boot' menu
    3. Select 'Boot sequence'
    4. Then either move your Hard drive to the top position or set it as the 'First Device'
    5. Press the 'escape' key to leave the bios. Do not forget to save your settings before exiting

Note: Once this change has been made, you will not be able to boot from a floppy disk or a CD-ROM. If for some strange reason you need to do this in the future, just go back into your bios, repeat the steps above and put your floppy or CD-ROM back as the 'First Device'

When your computer boots up it usually has to check with the network to see what IP addresses are free and then it grabs one of these. By configuring a manually assigned IP address your boot time will improve. To do this do the following:

  1. Click on ‘Start’ and then ”Connect To/Show All Connections’
  2. Right-click your network adapter card and click ‘Properties’
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘TCP/IP’ in the list of services and click ‘Properties’
  4. In the TCP/IP properties, click ‘Use the following address’ and enter an IP address for your PC. If you are using a router this is usually 192.168.0.xx or 192.168.1.xx. If you are not sure what address you could check with your ISP or go to ‘Start/run’ and type ‘cmd’ and then ‘ipconfig/all’. This will show your current IP settings which you will need to copy
  5. Enter the correct details for ‘Subnet mask’, ‘Default gateway’ and ‘DNS Server’. Again if you are not sure what figures to enter use ‘ipconfig/all’ as in stage 4.

Simple Ways of Speeding Up Windows Vista

Windows Vista is a rather heavy operating system with many neat features, but unfortunately they come at all in price. Right out of the box it requires a pretty hefty system to run (arguably).

Before you run out and buy a new computer just so you can run your base operating system, check out these Simple Ways To Speedup Windows Vista tips to lighten the load. This is just the first in the series, so many of them may be very apparent to those experienced in tweaking.

1. Turn off UAC, or at least make it less annoying

Now, there € ™ sa lot of talk about the new user account control policy in Vista, and all I can say is: as it is, it annoys the hell out of me and slow down my normal computer usage. Just why, oh why, does it have to flash my video card to a black screen, take 5 seconds and really just make itself a royal pain in the arse?

To turn it off, the easiest way is to go into the Control Panel and type in 'UAC' into the search bar. Ita € ™ ll bring up a search result of â € ~ Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or Offa € ™. Just follow the prompts from there.

To keep some of the security of the UAC, Leta € ™ s just turn off the crazy annoying blacking out screen bit. To do this:

     * Open group policy (start | run | gpedit.msc)
     * Then navigate to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options
     * Find the policy named â € ~ User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation € ™. Set this to disabled.

Much better, eh? You might say â € ~ But what € ™ s that got to do with speed? Â € ™ Well, as I mentioned, it prompts me a couple times at least an hour and then takes several seconds to figure itself out. My productivity goes up, so ita € ™ sa speed enhancer;)
2. Disable Aero

I personally do not do this, as I am a fan of the graphical styles, but I realize it comes at a cost. It does tend to eat up both RAM and CPU usage (as well as video card usage). While it is turned off during gaming, you can still notice its effects during normal computer usage. When it is really cranking, it can use 15% of your CPU. Ouch. Vanity comes at a cost.

If you do like it, at least turn it down a notch couple. Some performance increases have nothing to do with strain on hardware, or amount of processing. Sometimes, things are designed to take longer than they should, though maybe only a fraction of a second, but the end result to the user is a faster machine. Minimizing and maximizing does an animation. Watch closely. Pretty quick eh? Still, it does slow you down, and, really, what does it add to your experience? I am all about vanity and aesthetics, but this feature has got to go.

Relish in the fact you will be increasing your productivity by 0.2 seconds to Minimize / Maximize. :)

     * Open your start menu, go to Run, and type in 'systempropertiesperformance'
     * From the Visual Effects tab, uncheck "Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing '
     * While you are here, might as well check out the other goodies you can disable.

3. ReadyBoost

ReadyBoost is one of the more innovative features of Vista. The idea behind it is to use solid state memory as a secondary memory cache (before hard drive caching.) It does require a certain level of speed from your USB (or other) flash drive. Do a quick search on google for just the fastest USB flash drive you can get your hands on (women € ™ t worry they are cheap) and buy one.

To enable ReadyBoost, just plug in a fast flash drive, and autoplay should come up with a dialog stating that you can use it for readyboost. If you have disabled it, you can just go to the properties for the drive and select it under the readyboost tab. Easy as cake. It is no substitution for RAM, but one can get a several GB flash drive for very little. Some sites have stated that the improvements are not as much as MS says they are, but even a minor improvement for such a low investment makes this worth your while. Do find the best drive you can for random reads / writes (the drive speed is usually rated for sequential reads which wonâ € ™ t help you much).

     * What speed drive do I need? 2.5MB/sec throughput for 4K random reads and 1.75MB/sec throughput for 512K random writes.

     * What size drive do I need? 256MB to 4GB, where as best performance is gotten at around a 1:1 to 2:1 in flash to ram ratio. So really, you should never try this with a flash drive smaller than 1GB-2GB
 4. Tweaked Indexing Service

I personally woman € ™ t the new research, too. Although pigs a large amount of resources, though. If you completely out:

       * Go to My Computer, right-click the folder C: drive, go to the General tab and uncheck Index this drive to speed up the search, select Include subfolders and files.
       * You can use any additional areas of research, so you can quickly your search to certain areas.

Personally I think the indexing of the options in the control panel and menu items to start as a blessing, so let alone. Only to find items in the tree that women actually € ™ t want to be indexed (including documents).
5. While you are in this solution the rest of your search

Often it is for me to do research in text files, as a method for use in a PHP file, or perhaps something in a file java. Whatever the situation, Windows Vista has a very limited number of extensions scored for the full-text search, which gives rise to "no results" when we know there are some.

       * Open Control Panel and type of "indexing" in the search field (or you can do in the Start menu, but many people off).
       * Select Options for indexing "
       * Select the Advanced button
       * Select "File Types" tab
       * On this list you'll see a list of extensions. If you click on the majority of them, the bottom button from the index only properties or properties and index the contents of a file '
       * Frankly, index-only properties is fairly useless so most people use for research (which is to say, actually just a search by date).
       * Remove an image that you removed from the search. This can be done for a series of extensions that honestly, issued € ™ t want to know anyway. Is it really help your score.
       * Change button in the index of the properties and contents of a file "because these types of files included in the research (should be established for Word documents, and any other text-based search in the archives)

6. So the sidebar

On declares itself. Ita € ™ s a heavy and ugly. If you use it, great, if you are a woman € ™ t something desktop space. Setting the google. Or Yahoo.
7. Ombudsman has a use?

Yes, Windows Defender actually has a purpose!

       * Opens
       * Click on Tools
       * Click Explorer software
       * This will allow you to select groups of items, the default is to start programs. Now you see that oh, OpenOffice is fast, and you can just turn off.

The items on this list is very likely that the programs that run at 100% of the time that your computer is on, so if you can live without them, kill them.

8. Fine-tune their services

Well, this is a debatable. Many sites preach the service information to adjust the end of all institutions, and Vista has a lot of services (like 130). However, a good portion of them are configured for manual or default. Manual only started the service when the operating system thinks it needs to use this program. However, Vista has a lot of services set to Auto by default, which are not necessary for many people. Of course, which normally for sleeping, that does not use CPU, and whether the use of space, usually in paged to disk very quickly. But, regardless, it is reasonable to make fast, and gain some improvements.

Firstly, how to say what should be really worried. A new feature in Vista is the â € ~ Go to Service € ™ feature in Task Manager (or at least I've never noticed that before). Open Task Manager, Processes tab, right-click a particularly heavy and select a € ~ Go to Service (s) â € ™. This instead of the Services tab and select all services carried out under this process (which are usually multiple svchost.exe runs, many of the other only on a map service).

It also works the other way (select service, right click and go to trial) I have something to 75 servers working at the moment. Most of them are exactly zero for use. I do not have a printer, but print queue is implemented and the use of a huge range of my 1 MB RAM at the time. There are more examples, but even if you get 20 of these, it's your time worth? Well, yes and no. As I said, many of them are already paged, so really scenario € ™ t that affect their system € ™ s memory. Do not include overhead costs, because the developer has yet to master, but I can not for the life of my record the way it does in Windows.

In general, perhaps minimal, but if you go for every ounce of change Ness, give it a chance. IA € ™ d recommend looking Tips Speedy Vista registration pages or files, so you can keep a copy of the standard services around when / if the current rail systems and the need to return to the default page.
9. How can you find out what the area of improving â € "tweaked their programs

Well, youâ € ™ s received the operating system to some extent, what € ™ s next? Well, guess where the bottlenecks still! There € ™ s probably a kind of software on the computer and only kills the implementation (or 6.7 of them). Mrs. € ™ t really blame MS yet. But fortunately for Windows Vista has a simple device, including to help identify and resolve the problem quickly.

       * Open Task Manager (many ways to achieve, the easier it is CTRL + ALT + DELETE and select Start Task Manager)
       * Click the Performance tab
       * Click Monitor Resource
       * Expansion of the disc and order by a read or write the column.

You can also take a look at the CPU, memory and network usage in the same way. Now you have probably noticed that your virus scanner is the use of resources 20x Aero, as it insists on the exploration of its RAM all the time, and cursed scans every file that read, write or run. But what can you do? Looking for a few programs that are coveted, or run when they have no reason to take action (for example, iTunes has a couple of installation canceled services that run constantly. Why? IA € ™ ve no idea to which services 2.3 and multiple threads just looking for himself could connect your iPod, because the functionality is already included in Windows). Office also has a preloader € ~ â € ™ fast start services (such as OpenOffice) to make sure things work € ~ â € ™ bettered for you. Even though you get super it should do so automatically, without the need for additional memory.
10. In fact, nobody, but tune ...

Ok, # 10 ISNA € ™ t really a speed of the story, but Italian € ™ s € ™ IA something I've always found annoying on many operating systems. Many of us have 2 LCD monitors, and oh € ™ t would be nice to be able to make various sources of both? There are programs here do, but here € ™ sa way to do this only within the windows.

       * Right-click the background and select Customize.
       * Click on the desktop background
       * Choose a background image that is at least as wide as the whole of the resolution of the two monitors (or the scale of the image until it is large enough, what you get .. tiling to be an adjustment in order to let your photo editor for your choice.
       * Select the image tile positioning option as shown below. This is the only option for the background image for multiple monitors

Simple Ways of Speeding Up Windows XP

I just finished setting up a new PC for a friend and I think some of you will be interested in some of the adjustments can I make all my computers to make them faster. I'm here focused on those that are simple to make and will not cause problems if you get ill, instead of registry settings etc. Quoting

1. Disable indexing services

Services Index is a bit small program that uses a large amount of RAM and can often make a computer endlessly loud and noisy. This process of system updates and lists of indexes all files on your computer. He does this so that when you do a search for something on your computer, it will look for faster scanning the index lists. If you do not search your computer frequently, or even if you do search often, this system service is completely unnecessary. To disable do the following:

      * Go to Start
      * Click Settings
      * Click Control Panel
      * Double-click Add / Remove Programs
      * Click Add / Remove Window Components
      * Clear the indexing service

     * Select the Advanced tab
     * Under Performance choose the Settings button
     * Select the Advanced tab again and under Virtual Memory select Change
     * Highlight the drive containing your page file and make the initial Size of the file the same as the Maximum Size of the file.

Windows XP sizes the page file to about 1.5X the current amount of physical memory by default. While this is good for systems with smaller amounts of memory (under 512MB) it is unlikely that a typical XP desktop system will ever need 1.5 X 512MB or more of virtual memory. If you have less than 512MB of memory, leave the page file at its default size. If you have 512 or more, change the ratio to 1:1 page file size to physical memory size.
8th Run BootVis - Improve Boot Times

BootVis will significantly improve boot times

     * Download and Run
     * Select Trace
     * Select Next Boot and Driver Trace
     * A Trace repetitions screen will appear, select OK and Reboot
     * Upon reboot, BootVis will automatically start, analyze and log your system's boot process. When it's done, in the menu, go to Trace and select Optimize System
     * Reboot.
     When your machine has rebooted wait until you see the Optimizing System box appear. Be patient and wait for the process to complete

9th Remove the Desktop Picture

Your desktop background consumes a fair amount of memory and can slow the loading time of your system. Removing it will improve performance.

     * Right click on desktop and select Properties
     * Select the Desktop tab
     * In the Background window select None
     * Click OK

10th Remove Fonts for Speed

Fonts, especially TrueType fonts, use quite a bit of system resources. For optimal performance, trim your fonts down to just those that you need to use on a daily basis and fonts that applications may require.

     * Open Control Panel
     * Open Fonts folder
     * Move fonts you do not need to a temporary directory (eg C: \ FONTBKUP?) Just in case you need or want to bring a few of them back. The more fonts you uninstall, the more system resources you will gain.

Pdf password remover

PDF Password Remover can be used to decrypt Protected Adobe Acrobat PDF
files, which have “owner” password set, preventing the file from editing
(changing), printing, selecting text and graphics (and copying them into the
Clipboard), or adding/changing annotations and form fields. Decryption is
being done instantly. Decrypted file can be opened in any PDF viewer (e.g.
Adobe Acrobat Reader) without any restrictions — i.e. with edit/copy/print
functions enabled. All versions of Adobe Acrobat (including 7.x, which
features 128-bit encryption) are supported.

The standard security provided by PDF consists of two different methods and
two different passwords, ‘user password’ and ‘owner password’. A PDF
document may be protected by password for opening (’user’ password) and the
document may also specify operations that should be restricted even when the
document is decrypted: printing; copying text and graphics out of the
document; modifying the document; and adding or modifying text notes and
AcroForm fields (using ‘owner’ password).

What we do:

1. Decrypt PDF files protected with owner passwords.

2. Removing restrictions of PDF files, Restrictions usually include the
impossibility to print or edit or modify the PDF file.

What we don’t do:

1. Decrypt PDF files protected with user passwords which you are asked for
opening the file.

Installing Ubuntu Linux!


If you are like 93% of Internet surfers out there, you are reading this article from a browser installed on your Windows machine, however I’m sure you have heard of that “other operating system”. You know the one which is really difficult? Yeah, that’s right, Linux. Well, it’s almost right, except for the part about “really difficult”. You may have seen screenshots, thought about trying it, already tried it, or just thought “hey, it’s a cool idea”. If you are any of these and curiosity just has you itching to give Linux a shot, or another shot, read on!

In this article I’ll show you how to get up and running on your current system in your very own Linux environment. I will be walking you through installing the most popular, and in my opinion the best flavor of Linux called Ubuntu. So before you read any further, hop on over to the the Ubuntu Linux download page and start downloading the CD image. You may be wondering which download do you need. If you have an Intel or AMD processor
, get the Intel x86 version. Avoid the 64 bit version, even if you have a 64 bit processor, it is not officially supported. Mac users will need the Power PC variation.

Don’t worry, we will be setting up a dual boot so your Windows install is safe!

 Why Bother?

Good question. Why would you want to try Linux when you are a happy Windows user? Here are just a few reasons:

    * It’s 100% free and always will be
    * Thousands of applications are immediately available and 100% free
    * No more virus, spyware, or malware hassles!
    * You want to learn something new (this was my reason)
    * It’s cool
    * Why not?
    * It’s 100% free (did I mention that yet?)

If any of those reasons are compelling, or at least good enough, Linux is worth giving a shot. Who knows, you might actually like it!

 Important Stuff to Know

Before we actually start the installation, it is important to make sure your expectations of Linux are set correctly. First and foremost: Linux is not Windows! You are going to have to use the command line sometimes and most likely do a little bit of troubleshooting. Please do not let this intimidate you, after using Linux for a short while you will become proficient and, with a little patience and persistence, eventually be just as comfortable with Linux as you are with Windows. I’ll even point you to some very helpful resources to get all the answers you need. I’ve only been using it 5 months, and while I still know Windows better, I can use Linux just as easily.

As you may know, Linux is “open source” software, meaning anyone, anywhere can take the code and edit it without restriction. This sounds great, and don’t get me wrong, it is, however because there is no commercial backing, there can be certain shortcomings. Some of these include device driver support and availability of software (especially games). Do not let this discourage you though, virtually all hardware has support for Linux and you are going to have thousands of applications available to you with just a few clicks of your mouse once we get you set up on Ubuntu. Sound good? Of course it does! Check you download progress!

The machine I will be referring in this article is an Intel Pentium 3 866Mhz. The motherboard is an Asus CUV4X with 512MB of memory. Additionally, I have a DVD drive and 2 15 gigabyte hard drives, One has XP Professional already installed (primary IDE master) and the other is empty (primary IDE slave). Here is a basic rundown of what I will be covering in this article:

    * Setting up Ubuntu Linux on a separate hard drive from Windows
    * Answering a few post-new installation questions
    * Familiarizing you with your Linux environment… using Windows terminology
    * Pointing out some stuff you might want to try

 Lets Install Ubuntu!

Ahh, there’s nothing more exciting than a new operating system install. Nervous? Don’t be, this is going to be easy. Is your download done yet? Well, when it is, burn it to CD immediately and pick up this article from this point. I’ll even leave you a marker so this spot is easy to find.


You have the Ubuntu install disc, so pop in your spare hard drive (if you do not know how to do this, make a quick detour to the PC Mech Forums and you will have it done in no time) and put the install disc in your CD drive and lets get started.

After your computer goes through its boot sequence you will be greeted with the Ubuntu installation welcome screen. After pressing Enter, you will be asked for your preferred language, followed by your location and keyboard layout. The install will then start detecting some of your hardware, load some basic components, and auto detect your network settings. Now you will be prompted for your “Host Name”. This is the equivalent of your Windows computer name. I am going to call this computer tux (the name of the Linux Penguin). Up next, the install will detect your hard drives and ask what you want to do. Much like Windows, Ubuntu will let you select the drive you want to install it on and with the press of your Enter key handle everything for you. The problem is, that’s no fun, plus there is a better way. So let’s do a little Linux “geeking”.

Partitioning for Your Linux Installation

Before showing you the partitioning scheme I will be using for this setup, it is important to understand how the use of partitions differ between Windows and Linux. On a default Windows install, all your files are stored in a single block of space on your hard drive called a partition. To make things easy, Windows assigns a letter (usually C) to this partition. Linux does the exact same thing except it does not use letters. In fact, if you were to “explore” your Linux file structure, it would appear everything was stored on a single drive, even if you have several partitions or multiple hard drives “mounted” (more on this later). Enough talk, select the option to manually edit your partition table and let’s move on.
Now you will see a listing of your existing hard drive partitions. Linux refers to your IDE devices (usually your hard drives and CD drives) using the letters “hd” followed by letters a through d (representing primary IDE master through secondary IDE slave, respectively). Additionally, hard drive partitions have a number after them referring to the partition number. For example, a hard drive on your secondary IDE cable set as master, with 2 partitions would show as hdc1 and hdc2. A CD drive on your primary IDE cable set to slave would show as hdb (there is no number because CD’s do not have partitions).
You should see your primary hard drive (hda) which has your Windows installation with all of its partitions listed. We are going to leave this one alone. Additionally, you will see your empty hard drive (hdb, hdc, or hdd) with the size of the drive listed followed by “FREE SPACE”.
Highlight “FREE SPACE”, press enter and then select the option to create partition. We are going to first create the “/” partition which is equivalent to the Windows C drive. All of your programs and libraries (libraries in Linux are similar to Windows DLL’s) will be stored on this “/” partition. A size of 5-10 GB should be plenty for this. Since I only have 15 GB on my installation drive, I am going to allocate 5 GB, but if you have a bigger drive, assign more space just to be safe. On my primary machine, I have an 80 GB drive and I have 10 GB partitioned for “/”. After entering the size, select Primary as the partition type. Next you will be asked where to place the partition on the disk. Since “/” is our workhorse partition which will store all our crucial Linux operating system files, including the information we need to boot the system, it makes sense to place it at the beginning. At last you will be presented with a partition configuration screen. You will see the option to change the partition file system, but lets leave it with the Linux standard, ext3. Make sure the mount point is set to “/” and change the bootable flag to “on”… after all we do need to boot our system right? Select the option to be done with this partition and let’s move on to the next one.
You should now notice some of the free space has been allocated to your “/” partition. We still have a couple of more partitions to set up so highlight “FREE SPACE” again and create our swap partition. The swap partition is used for temporary random storage in case your computer doesn’t have enough memory to store what programs demand. Additionally, if you hibernate your computer, all the contents of your memory are stored in the swap. Windows refers to this as “virtual memory”. The recommended amount to allocate for this is one and a half times your memory, so for me, I am going to make it 768 MB. Make this a primary partition and place it at the end of your drive. At the configuration screen, change the partition to a swap area. Apply the changes.
Lets set up the final partition. Select the remaining “FREE SPACE” and assign all of your remaining space to this primary partition. When you get to the configuration screen, notice the mount point is set to “/home”. The /home directory in Linux is equivalent to “My Documents” in Windows. For example the user I am going to set up, “jason”, has its own directory (/home/jason) which stores all my personal settings and files. The reason we make this a separate partition is for abstraction. For example, we can format our “/” partition for a new install or distribution upgrade without losing any data… even better, all my settings such as bookmarks and playlists will be kept no matter what happens to the “/” partition. Pretty neat idea. Apply your changes, this is the last partition!
Well, the hard part is now over. Compare your screen to mine, they should look similar. Go ahead and select finish partitioning and confirm you selections to write the partitions to your hard drive.
