Block or Unblock websites on Computer

Dear readers , Here is a simple technique to block or unblock any website on your system:

Precondition is that you must know the IP address of the website on your system

  • Go to Start and then Run.
  • Type in this C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
  • Now you will see file name Host open that in Notepad.
  • Below “127.0.0.1 local host” add IP address of site to be blocked.
  • To unblock any site just reversed the process.
  •  NOTE: For each site you block just add “1” to the IP (127.0.0.1)

      EXAMPLE

     127.0.0.1 local host
69.171.224.14    (This will block Facebook)
Hope this will be useful in one or the other case.
Thanks

How to find – Websites, secretly connected to your computer

Hello dear friends, Hope you all are fine with health and happiness.

Sometimes we use better connections but still we get slow speed which is quite annoying,this things happens due to fact that malware, spyware or any adware using your internet behind the scenes resulting to slow data transfer on original requirement of speed. Here is the technique to know what is going behind the hood.

Third party firewall also provide feature of blocking unwanted connections unless to manage exclusion option for some sites.

netstat command from command prompt window is used to find the network statistics in details. This works in windows XP (out of date) and above i.e vista, 7,8,8.1 etc. In XP only service pack 2 is found to be responsive in this case. netstat command generate list of networks in systematic way in specified amount of time.

First of all log in your computer – window as an administrator (Any changes to the computer or information in the computer can be easily generated from Administrative log)ximg_53e314466c377-png-pagespeed-gpjpjwpjjsrjrprwricpmd-ic-iygyw7ynls

Window 8.x , command prompt is obtained by right clicking on desktop and choosing command prompt (Admin) option. Below 8, command prompt is entered by clicking start menu and entering “cmd.exe” in the search box. When the result display right click on cmd.exe and click run as administrator from popup menu.

2

If user account control Dialogue box appears click yes to continue.(User Account Dialogue Box may or may not appear depending upon your user settings).

4

Type the following command in the command prompt:

netstat -abf 5 > activity.txt

5

Here the  –a option shows all connections and listening ports,

–b option shows the application which is making the connection,

–f option displays the full DNS name for each connection option for easier

understanding of where the connections are being made to.

You can also use the –n option if you wish to only display the IP address.

The 5 option will poll every 5 seconds for connections to make it more easy to track what is going on, and the results are then piped into the activity.txt file.

Wait about two minutes and then press Ctrl + C to stop the recording of data.

Once  recording data is finished, Simply open the activity.txt file in your favorite editor to see the results, or type activity.txt at the command line to open it in Notepad.

The resulting file will list all processes on your computer (browsers, IM clients, email programs, etc.) that have made an internet connection in the last two minutes, or however long you waited before pressing Ctrl + C. It also lists which processes connected to which websites.

If you see process names or website addresses with which you are not familiar, you can search for “what is (name of unknown process)” in Google and see what it is. It may be a system function you don’t know about or a function of one of your running programs. However, if it seems like a bad site, Google helps you to get rid of it.

Some third party softwares are also handy in knowing and removing unwanted connections.

CURRPORTS and TCPVIEW are some of the common ones.

Thank you for bearing me ..

WHAT IS CLOUD STORAGE AND FREE DATA STORAGE SERVICE PROVIDERS

Cloud storage is a service model in which data is stored, maintained, managed on remotely based servers and are made available to users over a network through internet when and where ever required by the concerned. Users generally pay for their cloud data storage on a per-consumption, monthly rate. But still there are many service providers who are providing some quantity of data storage free of cost. Cloud security continues to be a concern among users. Providers have tried to deal with those fears by building security capabilities by encryption methods authentication methods etc.

What here is more important is that how we access the big data whether it is for the personal use or professional use. People either prefer upgrading their hard drives or even sometimes prefer using compact disks as well, but with the advancement in technology everyone wants access to data on the go, without having the need to carry physical hardware and hence Cloud Storage requirements fall into place.

Cloud storage can be classified into four types :

  • Personal / Mobile Cloud Storage : This is a type of cloud of type of cloud storage that we use in our daily lives, We use android and I-phone these days, for our safety we have already synced our phones online so that even if our phone is lost , we can backup it on the new device anytime as per our convenience. Let’s consider the use case study of i-cloud , the I phone cloud storage platform, that’s what is a personal cloud storage.
  • Publicly Available Cloud Storage : In this type, the user uses a public-ally available cloud which he has either rented or subscribed for a certain period of time. Anyone with access to that cloud with the User’s log in credentials could access that data from any part of the world.
  • Privately Available cloud storage : The company providing cloud storage services sets up the data center in the user’s allocated space. The main reason behind having a privately available cloud storage is the requirement of a secure platform and restricted access to the data.
  • A hybrid available cloud storage : In this case the data is available public-ally but some parts of the data is private and hence is restricted to some users only. So this is an On and off model where it can be switched from public to private or private to public anytime as per user’s convenience.
