If you came here specifically to fix a slow computer, then you came to the right place. The primary goal of this site is to provide guides and articles and so you can solve the problem yourself.


There are many things that can cause a slow PC such as registry errors, a virus, spyware, a lack of memory, or hard drive fragmentation. Luckily, all of these are fixable problems. Most of the issues can be fixed for free. Only a few of the problems listed above need any type of investment in software or hardware.


5 Steps to a Faster Computer


Generally speaking, 90% of computers will be sped up noticeably by completing ALL of the steps below, assuming you don’t have a nasty virus. These 5 steps are aimed at the most basic users and the full 5 step guide shouldn’t take too long to complete.


1) Defragment the Hard Drive



This task is very simple. To Defragment your hard drive, open up “My Computer”, Right Click on C:, Click properties, Click the “Tools” Tab, Click “Defragment Now”, Click Defragment, click ok. Here is more info from Microsoft on this.

2) Add Memory



If your laptop or desktop is starting to become dated, a memory upgrade will be the best hardware upgrade for you. Buying and installing memory is easier than you think. Here is a guide talking about the installation of memory.

3) Remove Spyware



Spyware can build up on your system and slow you down over time. Download and Install Ad-Aware, a free anti-spyware tool and then use it to remove all spyware that is on your PC.

4) Remove Unused Programs, Files, Folders



Do you have any unneeded programs, pictures, music, or videos? If so, deleting these will free up disk space which will increase the speed of your system. To remove programs, go to the control panel -> add/remove programs (or uninstall programs) -> click on the program you want to uninstall -> click “uninstall”.

5) Optimizing Windows Startup Programs


After you remove unneeded programs, you can also optimize the Windows Startup process so programs you don’t use often don’t start up automatically when Windows starts. You can check out our guide for optimizing windows startup programs for more help.

Computer and Internet Fraud | Wex | US Law

Overview

Fraud through the criminal use of a computer or the Internet can take many different forms. “Hacking” is a common form, in which a perpetrator uses technological tools to remotely access a protected computer or system. Another common form involves the interception of an electronic transmission unintended for the interceptor, such as passwords, credit card information, or other types of identity theft.

Statutory Definition

Computer fraud is defined in federal law in the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) as the access of a protected computer without authorization or exceeding authorization. The plain text of the statute appears to limit which computers are protected by the law:

(2) the term “protected computer” means a computer—
(A) …
(B) which is used in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce or communication, including a computer located outside the United States that is used in a manner that affects interstate or foreign commerce or communication of the United States

However, in practice a “protected computer” has been defined as any computer with Internet access,1 because the Internet is an “instrumentality and channel of interstate commerce”.2  Thus, the courts apply the law to nearly all computers by invoking the Commerce Clause. 

Specifically, the CFAA prohibits computer espionage, computer trespassing in private or public computers, committing fraud with a computer, the distribution of malicious code, password trafficking, threatening to damage a protected computer. Although the CFAA is primarily a criminal statute, it does define a civil cause of action in § 1030(g).

Examples of computer or internet fraud in action include but are not limited to:

  • Emails requesting money in return for small deposits, also known as an advance-fee scam, such as the infamous Nigerian prince scam.
  • Emails attempting to gather personal information such as account numbers, Social Security numbers, and passwords; also known as phishing.
  • Using someone else’s computer to access personal information with the intent to use such fraudulently.
  • Installing spyware or malware to engage in data mining.
  • Violating copyright laws by copying information with the intent to sell it.
  • Hacking into or illegally using a computer to change information, such as grades, work reports, etc.
  • Sending computer viruses or worms with the intent to destroy or ruin another’s computer.
  • Denial of service, in which an authorized user’s access to a network is intentionally interrupted.

Violators may be prosecuted under:

Types of Technology | Types of Everything


Technology can be defined in number of different ways. You can find a lot of definitions for technology expressing the same thing in so many different ways. Technology is a scientific knowledge which is used in practical ways in industry. Another definition is, “an application of scientific knowledge to commerce and industry.  For many people, technology is the name of thing like computers, mobile phones, television, computer games, play stations, spaceships, advanced military equipments, digital video players and other related machines or items. Perhaps, the science fiction books, movies, news articles, reports and even use of automobiles, computers etc are the major sources from where people get an insight of the term technology.

Technology has always been around the humans, possibly since the Stone Age. We can illustrate this point by taking an example of development of simple tools from wood and stone, similarly discovery of fire to produce heat and light were the first steps to pave the path of technology. As the time passed, the knowledge increased. The history entered the Bronze Age. In this age, man made a progress by making stronger tools from metal such as a wheel was discovered in that age. The Iron Age saw even more development and advancement where the manmade use harder metals instead of think copper or tin. It was in Iron Age when man learned the art of smelting iron and separating it from the ore. Many weapons were made along with other tools, improved transportation system, manufacturing which are the part of technological development of that age.

The cycle keeps on going and we have seen today that a lot of innovative inventions are made by utilizing the knowledge of the past together with new ideas and knowledge.

Different Types of Technology

Technology of Teaching

Technology of teaching deals with the instructional approaches which are designed in a systematic way and are applied in an extremely controlled environment. Instructional approaches usually include well-described, goal-oriented objectives, specific instructional procedures based on the tasks, a good level of teacher role, excessive student involvement, and moderate use of reinforcement and last but not the least careful monitoring of the students’ performance.

There are instructional procedures which represent majority of these principles comprise of the approaches like direct instruction (Carnine, Silbert, & Kameenui, 1990), response prompting (Wolery, Ault, & Doyle, 1992), applied behavior analysis (Alberto & Troutman, 1995; Wolery, Bailey, & Sugai, 1988), and learning strategies (Deshler & Schumaker, 1986). While implementing different technologies of teaching, the priority is not to use any machines and equipment, but they can be used where inevitable.

Instructional Technology

Instructional technology is a term about which many different opinions exist; however, Commission on Instructional Technology (1970) presented the following definition:

“Instructional technology is a systematic way of designing, carrying out, and evaluating the total process of learning and teaching in terms of specific objectives, based on research in human learning and communication, and employing a combination of human and nonhuman resources to bring about more effective

Jan’s Computer Basics | Jegsworks

Intro

You don’t have to know everything to be comfortable with computers. But there is a lot of
information that will help you understand why things are the way they
are… and how disaster can strike!

“Knowledge is power!” So it’s to your advantage to gather all the knowledge
that you can. Besides which, computers are lots of fun – when
they aren’t driving you insane!!!

Computer Hardware

Computer Hardware – Not all computers look like computers!

What’s in these lessons?

The lessons in this Computer Basics section of Jan’s Illustrated
Computer Literacy 101
Icon: On Site explain a lot of the techno-babble that you hear about computers.
The goal is to learn enough that you can follow along
as computer technology becomes more and more important in our world.

Consider this set of lessons “Beginning Driver’s Ed” for the computer. What might be covered in a Driver’s Education course in high school? How the engine works. Parts of the car. How to turn it on. How to shift gears. Rules of the road. Laws. Proper signaling. Lane changing. Basic maintenance. Changing a flat. Filling up with gas. Some clues on when “You’d better stop the car now!”

The topics covered here will introduce you to a similar set of topics about
computers. When you finish, you’ll be just as prepared to “drive” a computer,
as you were to drive a car when you finished Driver’s Ed. Scary thought, isn’t
it? That clearly means you will need lots of practice with a skilled “driver”
in the passenger’s seat before you can be considered “safe on the road!” But we
can get you started! You’ll understand the basic ideas behind
computers, some of the ills that affect computers, and some of the basic safety
measures to take to keep your computer healthy. You’ll gain some knowledge of
how we got to today’s computers and what lies ahead. It will be great!

The Computer Basics unit does not require you to touch a computer,
except to read the lessons. Other lesson units
guide you in actually using a computer, starting with Working with Windows Icon: On Site.

If you are using this site as part of a class, your instructor may have
you do only certain sections or do them in a different order.

Verify and claim your website URL

Before you can start using certain programs in Merchant Center, you need to verify and claim your store’s website URL. Verification lets Google know that you are an authorized owner of a website URL. Claiming associates the verified website URL with your Merchant Center account.

How it works

If you have never verified your website URL with Google before, you’ll start by verifying your website. To do this, you’ll choose one of four ways to allow Google to communicate with your website. These methods add markers to your site so that Google can find your site, and confirm that you are the authorized owner of both your website and your Merchant Center account. This code does not give Google any other sort of access or permissions.

To complete the process, you’ll claim your site. That means you’re reserving the URL you’ve verified for use with your Merchant Center account. Note that only the user who verifies the website will later be able to claim it.

Keep in mind

The links you provide in your product data must match the URL, including the top level domain (for example, .com, .net), that you claim in your account. Items submitted for any domain other than the one registered in your Merchant Center account will not process successfully.

Instructions

Step 1: Enter your website URL

You can verify a URL at any time using these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Merchant Center account.
  2. From the navigation menu, click the tools icon
  3. Select Business information under “Tools.”
  4. Click the Website tab.
  5. Enter your URL. Learn about the requirements for this URL
  6. Click Save.

You can also access this page by clicking on Provide your website URL in the setup pages for Shopping ads and surfaces across Google.

Step 2: Verify your website URL

Verifying your website confirms that you are the owner of your website URL, and that you have the ability to make edits to its content. To verify your website, you’ll use one of four methods. Each of these options allows Google to verify that you are the owner and that you have edit access to your website.

If you’ve previously verified your website for use with other Google products, such as Search Console, you don’t have to separately verify it for use with Merchant Center. Your website is verified, and you can skip to the claiming step below.

Google Analytics

If you’re already using Google Analytics and are an administrator of your account, this could be an easy way to verify your website URL. The Google Analytics tracking code is used only to verify your website URL ownership. No Google Analytics data will be accessed.

  1. Ensure that you have set up the Analytics tag. If so, you’ll find the tag in the head section of your page. Learn more about how to set up the Analytics tag.
  2. Click the blue “Verify URL” button at the bottom right to submit your URL to Google Search Console for verification.

Once you submit your

ABAP Programming Model for SAP Fiori – Part – 8



CRUD Operation in SAP BOPF

From our data model of Airline which we have created, there are three Composite Interface views. It is always good practice to add semantic business object annotations to the composite interface views. Because Basic Interface views has to be reused in other applications as well, so we apply business object annotations on Composite interface views. To generate a BOPF business object based on the three composite CDS views, we must add several @ObjectModel annotations to the views.

In the Airline root view (ZAPF_I_AIRLINE), we must add the annotations on the header level.

Below is the list of BOPF Business Object annotations.

# BOPF BO Annotations Purpose/Relevance
1. @ObjectModel.modelCategory: #BUSINESS_OBJECT Indicates that the CDS view represents a BOPF business object.
2. @ObjectModel.compositionRoot: true A business object is represented as a hierarchical tree of nodes, and by adding this annotation, a view is characterized as the root view of the node hierarchy.
3. @ObjectModel.writeActivePersistence: ‘SCARR’ This annotation specifies where created or updated data must be stored or deleted from.
4. @ObjectModel.transactionalProcessingEnabled: true To enable the transactional run-time for the view, this annotation is used. This annotation can only be added to Root view of BOPF hierarchy. Also, this annotation has to be added along with @ObjectModel.writeActivePersistence: ‘SCARR’.
5. @ObjectModel.createEnabled: true,
@ObjectModel.deleteEnabled: true, and @ObjectModel.updateEnabled: true
With these annotations, we specify which operations will be supported by the transactional runtime. When we set everything to true, then all operations are supported by our Airline root node.
6. /* Associations*/
@ObjectModel.association.type:#TO_COMPOSITION_CHILD
_Flight,
@ObjectModel.association.type:#TO_COMPOSITION_CHILD
_Fsched
To build up the business object node hierarchy, we must also annotate the association to Flight Info. and Flight schedule views as a child association.
7. /* Associations*/
@ObjectModel.association.type: [#TO_COMPOSITION_PARENT,#TO_COMPOSITION_
ROOT]
_Airline
Views that don’t represent the root node of the hierarchy must also specify their root node association, which, in our case, is equivalent to the parent association.

Lets apply the above BOPF BO annotations in our Airline model.

Root view – Airline
Flight Info.
Flight Schedule

On activation of the transactional or business object views, the BOPF runtime will generate a business object together with several structures and table types based on the CDS view field structures. The generated BOPF object has the same name as the
root CDS view, in our case, ZAPF_I_AIRLINE.

BO tree of Airline Data Model

To enable our existing consumption views for transactional processing via the generated BOPF business object, we must add some of the @ObjectModel annotations on the header level. To the Airline Consumption view (ZAPF_C_AIRLINE), we must add the annotations given as below
