Major Update For Windows 10

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 21 Mar, 2016
A few months ago, Microsoft released their latest operating system which is the Windows 10. As we all know, all their products undergo beta testing but it does not mean that it is already error free. As a windows 10 user, I also experienced some bugs that were present on their first release.

I remember years back that Vista was introduced on the market but it was discontinued and was tagged by users as a failed product. Vista contained severe bugs that even the markers of the product discontinued support.

The debut of Windows 10 was a thumbs up but many have not yet upgraded their systems because according to them, there is a big possibility that it still contains bugs. They were actually right but I was firm on my stand that I will immediately upgrade my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 once it is already available.

After weeks of waiting after the global release, it finally notified me for upgrade and right after that, I tried navigating it and noticed that after the upgrade to Windows 10, my computer's response is slower than usual. After a while, I noticed that the problem is slowly getting back and it even affected my... ... continue |

Reports - Besides the log sheet, sending reports to each other would be a big help for you. This would... ... continue |

Telstra to enter PH

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 06 Jan, 2016
There is news circulating around the web that Telstra, one the biggest telecom company in Australia is planning to enter the Philippines to provide blazing internet speeds in the country. If ever that it is true, it would be the end of hearing about how slow the internet in the Philippines is.

Most of you might not be aware that here in the Philippines, we are on the second to the bottom place when it comes to the ranking of the fastest internet in Asia. If you'll be comparing the prices of internet connections here and in other countries, you'll be surprised how expensive our internet is. Below are some of the countries which includes their rankings.

Top 5 (Fastest)

1. Singapore 122.43 Mbps

2. Hongkong 102.96 Mbps

3. Japan 82.12 Mbps

4. South Korea 59.77 Mbps

5. Macau 50.66 Mbps

19. Myanmar 6.54 Mbps

20. Pakistan 4.00 Mbps

21. Philippines 3.64 Mbps

22. Afghanistan 2.53 Mbps

From the said ranking, we could already say that our current service providers need to provide better internet / service in order for the Philippines to climb up the rank.

As an IT professional, I know how important it is to have a fast and stable connection especially for offices.... ... continue |

Firsthand review for Microsoft's Windows 10

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 15 Aug, 2015
It's been almost two weeks already since Microsoft released their latest operating system which is Windows 10 and as we all know, many are excited to download it for their personal computers. Microsoft of course was not able to finish all the updates for users in a single day and that it why it took a while before all who reserved a copy was able to download and upgrade their computers.

Personally, I was part of those users who were able to reserve a copy for its release but it was only the other day that I was able to download and install it. Now that I have already experienced the new OS, I will now be giving my personal review of some of its features.

I am currently using the Home edition version of Windows 10 and from my observation; they have redesigned it for it to feel and look new. If you will be using it for the first time, there is a big possibility that you'll be a bit confused due to its new look especially if you have been using Windows 7 or 8 for a while already.

We are all aware that the famous start button is... ... continue |

The comfort of working at home for IT professionals

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 08 Jul, 2015
For IT professionals, it is very common for them to just stay at home to work. Most IT companies allow that as long as you could produce the outputs that are needed from you. There are also some companies that would ask you to report to the office for a couple of days and would allow you to work at home for the remaining days.

Some of you might be wondering if how they could do that. Actually, working at home might be comfortable but distractions will always be present and it is up to you if how you would handle it. Working at home requires you to have a computer and a fast internet connection. When you are an IT professional who is working at home, there is a big possibility that the company has issued you a service laptop. Some companies might even pay for the internet connection of their employees.

There would also be times that you would be working at home due to the bad weather or unavoidable problems. Now, it is already the start of the rainy season and it is very possible that you just need to work at home due to the fact... ... continue |

Protecting your computers during the rainy season

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 08 Jul, 2015
We are now on the season where rains are starting to fall. It is now time where we need to bring our umbrellas and our jackets to protect ourselves. But did you know that computer needs to be protected too? Most of you might wonder why, how and is it even necessary?

In this article, I will be explaining why your computer needs to be protected during this rainy season.

During the hot weather, it is very common to experience overheating computers due to the fact that it is very hot outside. Overheating may not be a problem anymore but there might be new issues that might occur and below would be some of them.

Power outages - During the rainy season, it is very common to experience power interruptions or outages. The said outages might cause problems to your computer due to electric spikes. The best way to prevent this kind of problem is to have a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) or an AVR (Automatic voltage regulator). With the said devices, electricity would still be normal even after brownouts or fluctuations. If you are using a UPS, it could still hold the power for a couple of minutes depending on the kind... ... continue |

Microsoft's million dollar deal with US Navy

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 25 Jun, 2015
It is not new that Microsoft has stopped supporting Windows XP which has been around for more than a decade. So what does it mean when they say that they stop supporting a certain OS? It simply means that Microsoft will stop releasing patches and security updates for the said OS. As we all know, it would be a big risk to use a computer without updated patches. Microsoft has ended their support for XP last year but still, many are still using the said operating system.

It is not cheap to migrate from windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 especially for companies but money is not always the problem. In the US, the US Navy is still using Windows XP for their warfare systems. It is not because they could not afford it because as we all know that they do, but the problem is, the system that they are using are reliant on Windows XP.

As I have said, it would be very dangerous to use an operating system without updated patches and you might be thinking that why they are still using Windows XP. Are they using it even if Microsoft is not releasing... ... continue |

Things you need to check before migrating to Windows 10

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 25 Jun, 2015
It is already confirmed that Windows 10 will already be available for download this coming July 29th. It will be free to download for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users and make sure that you will be downloading it within a year in order to get the free upgrade.

Some of you might ask if would it support your existing hardware or do you need to upgrade certain components in order to upgrade to Windows 10. The answer is, NO, you don't need to update your current hardware because the requirements for Windows 10 are almost identical with Windows 7. Below would be the detailed specifications for both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Windows 7 requirements

Software Licensing importance

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 25 Jun, 2015
Most of you might not be aware that computers also have licenses that are needed to keep a computer running. Most users does not care as long as they could type, browse the net or to play games but actually, licensing is very important when it comes to computers.

A license is a proof that a company grants you access to a specific software or application. When you are using certain software that has no license or you did not purchase any license, it means that the software that you are using is counterfeit or pirated. Some of you might be wandering why you could also download some programs or applications without the need to purchase it, the said applications are called freeware or those stuff that are free to download.

It is not new that piracy is still a big problem not just in the Philippines but in the whole world. To further explain it, a software is called pirated when it was illegally downloaded or was activated using a certain program. There are many hackers and computer geeks that could easily crack a certain program that needs a license.

The impression of others is that licenses are only used for... ... continue |

Receive and send SMS using your computer

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 15 Jun, 2015
We are all aware that majority of cellphone users not just in the Philippines but in the entire world are already using smart phones. Smart phones have several features and functions which a regular cellphone does not have. One of the features that are available on smart phones is that it could be synced on your computer so that you could
send and receive text messages directly on your computer.

This application might be new for you but it is already possible. Some of you might have heard it already but most of you might not. The application that could be used to sync your phone on your computer is called "MySMS". The said application is capable of using your computer to send and receive messages. Just imagine the convenience that will give you if you are working on your laptop and somebody texted you and you could already reply using your laptop.

Personally, I have tried this program and installed it on my android phone and I can say that it works well. I do use it while I am on my laptop and even if my phone is inside my room, I could still receive notifications. It is very simple... ... continue |

Pop-ups, a possible source of malware

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 05 Jun, 2015
A pop up is a form of advertisement that is used on several websites. It is called a pop up from the name itself because it pops ups instantly whenever you open a certain site or if you clicked something that needs to open a new tab. Most users assume that when a pop up shows up, it is already a virus but actually, it is not. Again, a pop up is a form of advertisement but if it happens a lot, a malware might already be present on your computer.

Nowadays, browsers already contain pop up blockers which literally blocks pop ups but prompts you if ever you want to enable them. This way, pop ups are contained and would only show when you allow it. Most users are not aware that some programs that they have downloaded and installed might be the cause of several pop ups appearing.

There would be pop ups that would appear especially when you install additional toolbars for your browsers. I would advise you to not just install programs from ads. There would be some users that would just click install whenever a website prompted it. Another thing, be aware of the add-ons... ... continue |

MS Office Training, the course that will give you edge at work

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 29 May, 2015
Usually, when people hear about IT training, they think that it is only for IT professionals but actually, it is not. Here at CNCTC, we do not just offer training for IT professionals but we also offer basic training for those who wants to learn Microsoft office applications.

Most of you might say that using the said program would be a piece of cake but not to all. There would be those who need real training for them to be really familiarized with the program. I do suggest those who work in offices to give this training a try and I would assure you that you will finish your work faster.

For those working with MS office applications every day, I am pretty sure that there would be times that you spend amount of time in experimenting on how to do a specific task. It would be hard especially if most of you in the office are really not that familiar in using the said program. If there would be deadlines and some formulas are not working, that could be critical.

In this course, you will learn not just Microsoft Word but also Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint. It also includes the... ... continue |

Common Problems For The IT Department

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 27 May, 2015
The IT department is the one in charge when it comes to the devices, configuration and maintenance of all IT related peripherals. They are also the one who is capable of assisting customer queries when it comes to technical stuff. In every IT department, there will always be problems even if everything is well maintained. In this article, I will be talking about some of the common problems of the IT department.

Internet Outage - Having no internet is one of the critical problems for the IT department. Not all companies have backup internet connections to use during outage. If ever that your company has no backup connection, it could take a few hours or even days to fix it depending on the cause of the outage.

Power Outage - Here in the Philippines, it is very common to experience power fluctuations. When fluctuations happen, it could cause minor problems on some computers. It is very seldom that companies provide UPS for all computers to prevent problems during fluctuations. For the network related devices, it is a must to have it connected to a UPS so that if ever fluctuations occur, the said devices would not be affected. If network devices are... ... continue |

Worst viruses of all time

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 13 May, 2015
Most of you might be aware on what a computer virus is and what could it do to those computers that were infected. Basically, a virus is a program that could replicate itself without the knowledge of the user and it also has the ability to install or do some changes on your computer without your consent.

Viruses can be very lethal especially for big companies because it can freeze operations and could also damage infected computers. To know how deadly a virus could be, below would be some of the top viruses on the list that resulted to disaster.

I LOVE YOU - The "I LOVE YOU" virus estimated around $10 billion worth of damage. It spread via email and once you have it on your drive, it could copy itself and could stole passwords and send it to hackers.

My Doom - This virus spread via email and also by peer to peer file sharing. The virus forced google to shut down for almost a day. It infected many users because of its deceiving title like "Mail Delivery System" which many users would open especially if they are sending mails at that very moment.

Storm Trojan - The said virus... ... continue |

The end of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 07 May, 2015
More than a month ago, Microsoft had announced that they will already put an end to their long time browser, Internet Explorer. According to them, they would be using project Spartan as the codename of the next browser for the upcoming Windows 10.

Windows users are pretty much aware that the default browser that you could use right after you install windows is their Internet Explorer. It is also not new that many users do not like using the said browser due to several reasons.

Even from the start, I personally did not like using internet explorer as my browser because it crashes every now and then which can be very irritating at times. To be honest, you will only see few users that are using IE; you will normally see users using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as their browser.

When it comes to the interface of IE, it looks dull. It looks very simple. Sometimes, people tend to look at the design first before they use it and if they do not like how it looks like; they would not use or even try it anymore.

This time, Microsoft gave it up already after how many years. They will be introducing... ... continue |

Microsoft to roll out free Upgrade to Windows 10

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 27 Apr, 2015
Yes, you saw it right; Windows will be giving out free upgrades for those who are currently using Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 and take note, an update would be available even if you are using a pirated version.

It's been more than two years already since the release of Windows 8 and then now; they are again rolling out their latest product which is the Windows 10 version. According to Microsoft, the product would be free for update as long as you enable the Windows update and you must have the Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 version installed. But the said update is not applicable to enterprise versions because of course; they would need to upgrade their license to a Windows 10 Enterprise version.

Windows 10 will be free for those who would upgrade in the first year right after the launch. The said OS might be free but according to Microsoft, they would not risk security and that is why they would be releasing updates every now and then to make sure that it runs perfectly.

As we all know, majority of users who migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 8 expressed dismay which resulted to... ... continue |

Microsoft, The new owner of Nokia

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 23 Apr, 2014
Nokia, one of the biggest producers of mobile phones in the world will be acquired by Microsoft for around $7 Billion. It is not a secret to all of us that Nokia is not on the top of the list anymore. Years back, Nokia has been the leader in producing mobile phones all over the world but when android phones were introduced on the market, Nokia's sales drastically slowed down.

Nokia was known for their "User Friendly" mobile phones back then. At that time, Nokia's competitors are Samsung and Motorola. I remember having my very first mobile phone, the Nokia 3210 which became one of the most famous mobile phones of Nokia a decade ago. Almost all mobile phone designs and features of Nokia back then attracted consumers but after several years of being on top, Nokia wasn't able to sustain their position because consumers are now choosing other brands instead of Nokia.

In this present time, Android and IOS phones are the only two competing for the top spot on the market which leaves Nokia out of the picture. Nokia's Lumia which is powered by Windows wasn't able to catch the attention of consumers. It would be very seldom nowadays that... ... continue |
