Sometimes that change may make your system unstable due to incompatibilities or conflicts amongst files of the newly installed program & older files.The system may also start not responding and you may start getting error messages like “application is not responding.Restart”

In this situation you can use a feature of Windows “System Restore” to restore the original state of your Operating system.Every time you are about to do a major change in your OS  it makes a check point prior to it.These check points are referred to as Restore points in Windows.System Restore which is very similar to an undo command takes your computer to any previous checkpoint and rollback the changes next to that checkpoint.However it does not affect your document files.Here is a Tutorial how to restore your computer in Windows 7.

Network Access Protection : Secure your Network

nap

Network Access Protection (NAP) is a platform that network administrators can use to help protect the security of a network. When you connect to a corporate network that uses NAP, your computer is checked to make sure that it has the required software and settings, and that the software and settings are up to date. If anything is missing or outdated, your computer can be automatically updated. Your network access might be limited during that time, but usually this process happens quickly, after which full network access is restored. So it checks if the computer you are connecting over network is really safe to connect or not.If any violation to NAP protocols is there such as presence of Virus,Trojans etc over the network computer you are connecting NAP wont allow you to connect.Enabling NAP enhance your security over network and you will be much more safe.

You can see if it is Activated here :  Control Panel >System Security>Action Center>NAP Status On/Off

Power to shutdown Internet with Obama

There has been a  U.S. senate bill redrafted to give President Obama the power of control to shut down the Internet in case of emergency situations. US President can stop the Internet services provided by private sector networks in case of any emergency which involves internet related issues.Bill if passed would allow control to temporary disable Internet traffic in private-sectors by US President.

According to Larry Clinton, president of the Internet Security Alliance, which contains large Internet and telecommunication companies such as Verizon,VeriSign, Nortel and Carnegie Mellon University "A Senate source familiar with the bill compared the president's power to take control of portions of the Internet to what President Bush did when grounding all aircraft on Sept. 11, 2001." He further mentioned “It is unclear what authority Sen. Rockefeller thinks is necessary over the private sector.Unless this is clarified, we cannot properly analyze, let alone support the bill."

This bill if passed can be a sigh of relief for all the sectors whose operations and functions have become purely Internet dependent.In fact most of the government departments and critical places where internet is being user are traffic management,Metro Trains,Power Grids,nuclear Reactors and many more .The bill thus can help protect against cyber threats and attacks on such critical infrastructures.Hackers being too active and interference of techie terrorists this can be a necessary step.

Job Prospects via Online Social Networking

So tweeting a few tweets every day or scrapping out a lot.Well that may affect your job prospects and increase.Being socially active over internet has more benefits than you can see,and a helpful hand in job prospects is a indirect benefit.

According to an article @ theHindu more number of American employers are turning to such sites before zeroing in on the right candidate for employment

A major chunk of the US employers are banking on social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace, to research on a candidate before recruitment, says a survey.

Nearly half of employers surveyed in the US by job portal CareerBuilder showed that 45 per cent of them use social networking sites to research job candidates. Last year, the same stood at just 22 per cent.About 11 per cent are planning to start using social networking sites for screening.Moreover, about 35 per cent of employers reported that they have found content on social networking sites that made them decide not to hire the candidate.

The survey was conducted online within the US by Harris Interactive on behalf of CareerBuilder.com between May 22 and June 10, 2009 among 2,667 hiring managers and human resource professionals.

Going by the findings, Facebook is the most preferred among employers with 29 per cent of the employers using that site for online searches or background checks before recruiting candidates.Besides, 26 per cent of respondents use LinkedIn, 21 per cent surf MySpace, 11 per cent search blogs and 7 per cent follow candidates on Twitter for information.

The industries most likely to screen job seekers via such sites or search engines include IT (63 per cent) and professional and business services (53 per cent).

"Social networking is a great way to make connections with potential job opportunities and promote your personal brand across the Internet," CareerBuilder Vice-President of Human Resources Rosemary Haefner said.

Among those surveyed, 53 per cent respondents said candidates have posted provocative or inappropriate photographs or information, while 44 per cent said that many candidates have posted information about drinking or using drugs.

As per the survey, 35 per cent of respondents found that candidates bad-mouthed their previous employer, co-workers or clients and made them decide not to hire such people.Interestingly, 14 per cent of employers did not hire a candidate because he/she send a message using an emoticon such as a smiley face while 16 per cent decided against recruiting a candidate for using text language such as 'GR8' (great) in an e-mail or job application.

On the other hand, nearly 18 per cent said they found content on such sites that helped them hire a candidate.

So Best of luck for your Tweets & Scraps .May be that can land you up into your dream job.
