How Windows Files and Folders Work In Computer

Friday, May 22, 2009
Without a fundamental understanding of how OS and their files work, you will not be able to understand the impact viruses and malicious code can have on a system.

A computer’s 0S and the programs that run on it are made up of files, most of which reside in directories or folders much like a filing cabinet. For example, most of the files associated with the Windows operating system might be found in a folder logically called Windows. Within the Windows folder are several sub folders (many of which also have subfolders) that help further categorize the files they contain. Files that don't reside in a folder or subfolder are said to be 0n the root 0f the drive.

The actual name of the Windows folder can vary from system to system. For example, someone installing the Windows XP operating system might choose a folder name such as WinXP. Because of this, %windir% is often used in technical writing to imply the name of the Windows folder, regardless of what that actual name might be.

Think of your home filing cabinet. Perhaps you have a file folder named ‘Bills' and inside that folder you have copies 0f individual bills you’ve paid. Perhaps you’ve even organized them using sub-dividers, so that the Bills folder is actually broken down into months or type of bills. Comparing that to a computer, the individual bills would be the files, the sub-dividers would be the subfolders, and the main folder ‘Bills’ would be a directory or folder found on the computer.

Windows 7 Retains Windows Explorer Security Risk

Wednesday, May 6, 2009
Mikko H. Hypponeen, chief research officer at F-Secure, points out that Windows 7 retains a characteristic in Windows Explorer, the operating system's file management application, that has allowed attackers to deceive Windows users since the Windows NT era.

Specifically, Windows Explorer provides a way to hide a file's extension. Virus writers use this feature to disguise executable files as something more innocuous, such as text files, Hypponeen explains in a blog post.

By also changing the appearance of a malicious executable's icon, malware authors have a much easier time convincing users to run malicious software using social engineering techniques.
Such an oversight might be less noteworthy were Microsoft not pushing its End-to-End Trust vision to enhance computer security. Last year at the 2008 RSA Conference, Microsoft chief research and strategy officer Craig Mundiee said that it was "important that we give people the tools to empower them to make good trust choices."

Having accurate information about the nature of the files on one's computer could be said to be equally important.

At the same time, Microsoft deserves some credit for hardening Windows 7 against another attack vector, the automatic execution of files stored on removable media. Last month, Microsoft said that it had changed Windows AutoPlay so that it would no longer automatically run applications on external devices other than CD/DVD players. This will help prevent the propagation of malware like the Conficker worm through USB thumb drives.

How to identify and troubleshoot Graphic Card problems

Monday, May 4, 2009
The graphic card is one of the most vital pieces of hardware in your PC. Without it, your super monitor with all the bells and whistles is just a junk box.

Make Directional Input
Most video cards come with simple frame capture programs, but you'll have to do some programming if you plan to join together video capture with other operations on your computer, such as adding text data as an overlay or changing video-in channels on the fly. In this case you'll need good programming libraries in a language with which you are familiar for the video card. Some companies include libraries with their cards, but most charge extra. Most often libraries, when available, are for C or BASIC, and sometimes Pascal.

Choose Between 24 bit and 32 bit
For True Color mode, some graphic cards offer 24 bit while some offer 32 bit. Which is the best? When True Colour mode was first suggested, it utilizes 32 bit which was very pleasing to the eye, they realize that 24 (with less coolers) won't look much different since the human eye can only take about a certain amount of colors. On the other hand, 24 bit will run faster compared to 32 bit because it uses less colors. So if your card utilizes 24 bit, don't worry, it isn't bad.

Always Use The Latest Drivers
Yes, it is important to make sure you always have the latest drivers. The latest drivers will offer you better performance, more utilities and more compatibility (usually for DirectX or Direct3D). Take the effort to check you card manufacturer's site to look for the latest driver updates.
