Unable to access Internet after downloading file

October 30, 2013

Most of the time, I spending my days facing my computer installed with Internet connection, I always download a lot of stuffs from videos, softwares, tutorials and games.

I am confident to download a lot of stuff because I am protected with Deep Freeze and (at this time) I use AVG Internet Security 2013. Take note I am using the updated full version of the Anti virus so it can scan everything. From files from usb, your whole system, your emails, the sites you visited, your memory usage and networking.

For me at that time, No one is better than AVG Anti Virus because of its user friendly options and system usage.

Until one time, while I am downloading videos, I began to notice that my Internet connection has been gone. And the IDM download transfer rates began to become zero.

downloads block by avg antivirus because of its internet and network scanning capabilities

At first I began to panic, because I desperately needed that file. I hold my breath and think calmly and said.. “What seems to be the problem?”

I analyzed the fact the IDM repeatedly going to zero even after I restart my PC and looking for possible causes, observations and solutions. And I wrote all of them

POSSIBLE CAUSES:

  • FIREWALL BLOCKS CONNECTION
  • UNDETECTED VIRUS INFECT MY SYSTEM

TESTED SOLUTIONS

  • DOWNLOAD FILES/VIDEOS ONE BY ONE ONLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUS DOWNLOADS IN A TIME IN ANY SITE.
  • REFORMAT MY PC AND UPGRADED MY O.S FROM XP SP2 TO XP SP3 ORIGINAL VERSION AND WITH WINDOWS UPDATE. BUT EVEN I’M NOT WORKING IN ORIGINAL VERSION
  • DOWNLOAD VIDEO SIMULTANEOUSLY BUT NOT A YOUTUBE VIDEO
  • AVG FIREWALL AND PC FIREWELL DISABLE TEMPORARILY
  • CLEARING UP THE COOKIES
  • RESTART MY PC

OBSERVATIONS

  • UNLIKE VIDEOS, FILES ARE EASILY DOWNLOADED USING BROWSERS DOWNLOADER OR EVEN THE SAID PLATFORMS
  • WHEN I CLICK AND READY TO DOWNLOAD A YOUTUBE FILE THE INTERNET CONNECTION IS STILL THERE BUT ALL THE BROWSER WILL CREATE A NON STOP LOADING…
  • EVEN JUST BROWSING A PARTICULAR YOUTUBE VIDEO REMOVES THE INTERNET IMMEDIATELY

After all of these facts I have made, I call back my technician (the one where I bought mygadgetmanjay.co.uk_AVG_IS2013_logo_734x450 PC), and rehearsed all the information I stated above and he said: “SIR, MAYBE ITS YOUR ANTI VIRUS THAT BLOCK THE PROGRAM. YOUR ANTI VIRUS HAS ITS OWN FIREWALL ASIDE FROM YOUR WINDOWS FIREWALL THAT BLOCK YOUR IDM WHEN IT DOWNLOADS. YOU SAID BEFORE THAT IT DOESN’T HAPPEN TO YOU BEFORE. BUT ONCE YOU UPDATE YOUR ANTI VIRUS, IT BEGUN TO DISTINGUISHED YOUR DOWNLOADER AS BLOCK FOR YOUR CONNECTION. AS A SOLUTION, WE RECOMMEND TO REMOVE YOUR ANTI VIRUS AND USE OTHER THAT WILL NOT BLOCK YOUR IDM. THANK YOU.

My technician is correct! After that I totally uninstalled AVG Internet Security and found better software than it! And I found out MS Security Essentials.

I also observed that the fact that the Antivirus has all capabilities to scan everything even my downloads. But if I only use a free version or a professional version rather than an Internet Security version, my IDM will still work even installed with AVG as defense.

So long, net lovers!

2 different facebook open in two different browsers

September 13, 2013

Requirements: Google Chrome and Firefox already installed TOPIC LEVEL: Beginner/Simple ***


Are you having a hard time logging out your account over and over again because you need to open other accounts. This is so hazzle even though you have a great internet connection. I usually download and install at least 2-3 browsers in my system so that I can compare the compatibility issues of software, network and internet connection. Most of the time, other users of this PC need to open their document online or from facebook account to download, print and edit it. So I observed, that this kind of thing is very annoying. Because everytime I use the Internet, I always open my facebook account using Google Chrome. As a solutions for the said problem, I found out that I can use two different browsers and open it at the same time or use other accounts to open it. While my facebook is open in minimized window in Google Chrome, the other user can open his/her account in facebook simultaneously in firefox, without affecting my opened account.

2 accounts one upload

So long, net lovers!

July 21, 2012

TOPIC LEVEL: Intermediate**


When I was new in the IT World, I notice that when I’m registering to a particular website, they offer you if you wanted them to give feedbacks of what was happening and what are you doing to their sites. For example, all my social networking activities in Facebook are recorded to my gmail account; All my gaming activities and news about the game are transferred to my gmail account. In short, once you sign  up to a specific website whatever the contents are, they wanted to give thanks to you by continuing to send you newsletters, latest news and updates.

Well, this is good for those businessman who wants to have daily updates to all the connections they have with their associates, but how about us, simple user that just want to learn more. Sometimes registering to many sites are not fun thing  to deal with because they are just an annoying thing to your inbox in your email. Thousand of unread subscription are listed to your inbox and you have difficulty to find the files you needed for revision or download.

So, if you want to be organized in all your Internet activities, you need to Unsubcribe to Email Updates. Unsubcribe links are just in the bottom part of the email send to you by the website. To this, you need to know how unsubcription works.

UNSUBCRIPTION TYPES

To know how unsubcription works, you need to know the different types to unsubcribe to a particular website.

Click and Done – Click the unsubcribe link and there you have it!

Click and Follow – Some websites really want to find out if you really want to unsubcribe to their emails. In order to do so, you need to follow some instructions after you click the unsubcription link provided by the site.

..for this example, you need to click unsubcribe. After you do so, another new page will appear and tells you that…

After you know the types of unsubcription, you also need to know how to do it!

Use MS Paint to upload picture more faster

October 10, 2011

TOPIC LEVEL: Intermediate**
Requirements: Windows XP with Microsoft Paint


Digital is all around. You can have it anywhere & take it everywhere. And it grow so fast! Like the evolution of digital cameras. Nowadays we have different kinds of high quality camera that brings high quality outputs.

But do you know that, the higher the image resolution, the slower it loads! Yes, because it depends on the specifications of PC. If you support a LCD with a high resolution graphics it so clear in viewing but if you have only 128mb in  your RAM, it really embarrassing to load it because it so slow. This situation is for the PC. But most of the time, it is much slower online, depending on your connection.

So what’s the point! The point is high resolution graphics need to be resize for uploading purpose. Resizing means decreasing its pixels and file size which gives us better viewing results. Uploading means to take some files from your PC and pass it to the Internet. The main point is we need to re size photos for better and faster uploading of pictures to the Internet. We need a software to re size it! MS Paint is the best choice!

Why? MS Paint is the basic, handy tool for newbies. You can paint whatever do you want like how we draw in real life. But do you know that you can use MS Paint in variety of advance ways such as Print Screen Outputs, Cropping a certain photo and lastly Resizing Images. Because we are talking of advance techniques, let us give you the shortcut keys instead.

For XP Users only,

1. Go to Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, Paint or Start Menu, Run type mspaint or create a shortcut of your own and place it to your Desktop or Quick Launch in your Task Bar.

2. Ctrl + O to Open a Picture. Find the location of the picture and click Open.

Before we proceed to the next step, we must consider the pictures size. In my sample file, I loaded the businessman.jpg to MS Paint with a 6.4mb of file size. I downloaded the file in less than a minute  I think. If you are going to upload it to the Internet, less than a minute is a little bit slow. A little bit annoying for faster connections like DSL. So not let’s resize it!

3.  Now press Ctrl W. Oops! Be careful! Ctrl  + W in windows explorer means close the active title bar application. It will close other application if you are not in MS Paint. So, click the Title Bar and then press Ctrl + W.

4. This will load the Stretch and Skew Form. Set both the horizontal and vertical text box of stretch to 50 and press Enter.

5. Now observe the difference

This is the file size. Look at your images. It looks like there’s nothing happens. Dimensions still the same, file size are not. Now you can upload faster because it a KB file not a MB file.

But dont forget to save it before you upload it! CTRL + S!

Actually you can do it in Photoshop also. But one great thing in paint, it is fast loading application. When you click it, it opens immediately. No need of waiting. Photoshop loads a lot of stuffs before you get the main environment of the application. But these principles are the same in Photoshop image size command.

So long, net lovers!

Can’t connect to other websites

July 2, 2008

TOPIC LEVEL: Advance***
Requirements: Internet Browser , Command prompt and make sure Run command is visible in Start Menu


Last week, I was so deeply baptrip about our Internet Connection. Because it can connect to some popular sites like Youtube, Google and Gmail but when you search or login on that site, just a white screen displayed in front of you. And also can’t connect to other links in the next 5 seconds of browsing. The site will be only displayed if you set it as your homepage in your Browser Settings/Options at Internet StartUp. Grrr…

If you have encounter something like this, here’s what you gonna do…

  • Check if all the settings of your browser is in default settings. If you are using firefox, make sure that TSL and SSL are checked. Located at Tools -> Options -> Advance -> Encryption.

ssl-tsl-check

  • Clear your all private data, test this problem to other browser and restart your browser.

cpd

  • If all settings are correct and still have the problem, reinstall your browser. Contact your ISP or Administrator for assistance.
  • After the browser successfully reinstalled, check. If still the problem is in, using the PING command.

ping1

  • Go to Start Menu -> Run -> Type PING 10.0.0.01 then press Enter or click Ok. Check for results contact your ISP for more assistance.ping
  • If you try to PING 10.0.0.0.1 th rice, but the black screen disappear, sad to say but you need to reinstall your Operating System. We assure you 100% guarantee to back your Internet Activity came normal again. It means that your OS is not updated to the latest version.
