Why should one use MS.NET for software development?




Well, most of the software development all over the world is done on and for Microsoft Windows Operating System. Dot Net is now the standard software development environment for the Microsoft Windows operating system.  It dramatically simplifies the development of windows, web based, data access applications, components, controls and web services. Dot net comes with amazing features like XML configuration, reflection, and attributes to ease the overall software development life cycle.  Finally, the dot net is supported by the Microsoft Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment; the best IDE available for any software development environment. Visual Studio .NET (VS.NET) supports all the areas of software development from project creation to debugging and installation.


Thank you . .


Rule number one : don’t screw around with the browser of your enduser. Say that you were able to filter out the print menu item. What about the keyboard combination ctrl + P? You could override that again with some javascript but that only leaves the enduser clueless as you’re overriding standard functionality and that’s a big nono.

Besides that, you’re using javascript. That can be turned off by an enduser and then your clipboard erasing script also doesn’t work anymore. Poof and there goes your protection level.

try it . .

Thank you

for firefox try as below:


    • 1

      Make sure the new media player is installed on your computer. Popular media players include Real Player, QuickTime, Windows Media Player and WinAmp.

    • 2

      Open Mozilla Firefox and click “Tools” and then “Options” on the main menu.

    • 3

      Click the “Applications” tab. Scroll down on the list of file types until you find all of your media file types, including playlists, audio and videos.

    • 4

      Select the “Action” column box next to each of your media file types. You will see a drop-down box.

    • 5

      Change your default media player for each file type by clicking “Use other.” Choose “Always Ask” from the list if you want the browser to ask you every time which media player you want to use, or choose “Save File” if you want to automatically save the file to your computer instead of opening it.

    • 6

      Press “OK” to close the dialog box. Close and restart your browser to activate the new settings. Click on a song or video file in your browser to make sure it recognizes your choice from Step 4 and opens the file in your new default media player.

Thank you . .

Put Windows on a Diet

Save drive space by helping XP to drop some bloat.
Windows XP is full of helpful applications, but some of them take too much control or have other downsides. MSN Explorer, the Outlook Express e-mail client, and even the Internet Explorer browser may all be mere baggage to you. All of these can be removed, saving you as much as 20MB of drive space in the process.

To remove them, navigate to the Control Panel by first clicking Start. Then open Add or Remove Programs and click on Add/Remove Windows Components on the left-hand side of the window. You can uncheck options that you do not use, such as Outlook Express, MSN Explorer, and, of course, Messenger.

After unchecking items to your heart’s content, click Next and let Windows configure its components; your system should be a few megabytes lighter. Note that some changes will require a restart, and removing things such as Networking can leave you with a crippled computer.
If you want to control more components in XP, try the utility in Add or Remove Programs that comes with Microsoft’s Service Pack 1. Click Start, then All Programs, then near the top of the column click on Set Program Access and Defaults. From here you can set your default browser, music player, and messenger, among other things.

The “Show Desktop icon” in XP missing, a lot of people seem to be confronted with this phenomenon.

Sometimes people loose this icon. It can accidentally be deleted or you may loose it for some other reason, but the bottom line is : only few people know how to restore it.

That’s because it is not an ordinary shortcut.

To recreate it :

Click Start->Run
In the “open” box, type “notepad” (without the quotes)
Click ok
Copy the following lines in your new notepad window :

Click “File” in the notepad menu and select “Save As”
Save the file to your desktop as Show Desktop.scf
Drag the new icon from your desktop to your Quick Launch toobar and select “Move here”
If you can’t move the new Desktop icon to your Quick Launch toolbar for whatever reason, you can also try the following technique :

Right-click the new show desktop icon on your desktop and select copy
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch (replacing with the username for which you want to restore the show desktop icon)
In the right pane of the explorer window, right-click an empty spot and select “paste”
Maybe you don’t see the Application Data folder in your Explorer. To see it, you must enable visibility for hidden folders :

In Windows Explorer, click the menu “Tools” and select “Folder Options…”
Click the “View” tab
Under “Advanced Settings”, select “Show hidden files and folders”
Click ok

If you computer is attacked by virus, or your computer system is not performing well after installation of some software, you can easily use system restore to get rid of all malfunctioning.

Many people first try to remove virus by running cccleaner or some other cleaning software. Using another software to remove virus is not good method, it may not remove virus completely. Sometime virus may come from pen drive.

Use only system restore method in Windows XP to remove all type of viruses completely.

To Restore the system go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools> System Restore. Choose the latest available point, when the system was working fine and restore the system to that point.

The system will be exacly same as it was on restoring date. This method will not delete of modify other file which is not related to program file of Windows XP.

Clear the clutter from your Hard Disk

Over time a lot of temporary files and other clutter gets accumulated in your hard disk…. which eat up a lot of space …. So here are some tips to clean them up

1.First open your search and search your System partition (For NOOBS :- System partition is the partition where your Windows is installed) using the following string *.chk,*.tmp … You will get thousands of file … just delete them ….

2.Or go to i)%system%\Windows\temp and ii) %system%\Documents and settings\\Local settings\temp and delete all the contents in both the folders…

3.If you have enabled hibernation and if you never hibernate …. You can disable it as it will consume the space equal to your RAM size ..(If you have 2 GB RAM … 2GB will be reserved for it in your system partition).

4.System Restore – though helpful but uses a lot of HD space if not maintained properly …. So start your disk clean-up it can be found in Start Menu->All programs->Accessories->System tools…. Start it and select the more options tab … check out the third option which reads “Delete all your checkpoints except the recent ones” click on the cleanup button and then press OK… (Just check your Hard disk space before cleaning up and after cleaning up !! and see the difference )

5.If you don’t use System Restore you can disable it …Start system restore (again it can be found in the same place) .Click on system restore settings on your left panel and turn off system restore settings on all drives or you can turn off on every drive except your system partition…

6.Disable your Recycle bin as it will occupy some HD Space… Right click on it and select properties….

Before doing all this check your HD space and check after doing it
