How Do You Reformat a USB Flash Drive?
March 02, 2009 by Jason

USB flash drives have become really handy in storing different files of various sizes
including, backups, personal documents, music, pictures, portable applications and more.
Flash drives turned out to be so convenient that people start pouring in files of any kind
without sorting them.

Because of these habits, flash drives end up getting real messy quickly and it becomes
difficult to figure out how to clear up disk space to accommodate more files.

Deleting unnecessary files is a good solution, but can be tough to do when files aren’t
properly organized. If you want to clear up disk space the fastest way possible, the best
problem solver to this is by formatting your USB flash drive directly.

The advantages of doing this is that your flash drive is wiped completely clean, removing
all files regardless of their attributes (including hidden files). Here are the basic steps in
reformatting your USB flash drive: Read More»

12 Tips to Prevent Your Computer From Viruses
March 01, 2009 by Jason

Symantec Security Response encourages all users and administrators to adhere to the
following basic security “best practices” to prevent the virus attack to your computer:

1. Use a firewall to block all incoming connections from the Internet to services that
should not be publicly available. By default, you should deny all incoming connections
and only allow services you explicitly want to offer to the outside world.

2. Enforce a password policy. Complex passwords make it difficult to crack password
files on compromised computers. This helps to prevent or limit damage when a computer
is compromised.

3. Ensure that programs and users of the computer use the lowest level of privileges
necessary to complete a task. When prompted for a root or UAC password, ensure that
the program asking for administration-level access is a legitimate application. Read

How to Boost performance by a good partitioning
scheme
February 05, 2009 by Jason

Although a PC used for writing doesn’t need to be a high-performance computer, its
performance can be improved by a good partitioning scheme. The biggest boost comes
from my Paging partition on drive H, which is found on my second physical disk. I use
this partition to boost performance in the following ways:
Move the paging file there. A well-known method for improving performance on a
Windows-based computer is to move the paging file (pagefile.sys) from its usual location
on drive C to its own separate partition on a separate physical drive.

Keep the Paging partition small (4 GB). By default the initial size of your paging file is
1.5 × RAM and its maximum size is 3 × RAM. So if your computer has 1 GB of RAM,
which is pretty good for a desktop productivity computer, then setting your Paging
partition to 4 GB gives you more than enough room for your paging file without wasting
disk space that could be used for other purposes like storing data. Read More»
