How to fix Flash problems?

How do I fix this message on my Computer, message below?
"Adobe Flash Player was blocked because it is out of date,"

You seem to have a very old version of Chrome. It should be 43.x at least.
Also make sure it starts automatically updating. Error 1 suggests the update service is missing from your computer. Reinstalling should fix this. Check the About page after reinstalling and it should have no error, instead showing it is up to date. If you still see the error you should try to resolve it... Goolging around might produce possible fixes.

If all else fails, uninstalling ALL Google products from your PC will force an uninstall of the Google Update tool; reinstalling Chrome (and anything else removed) will reinstall it from scratch which should ultimately fix the issue. I recommend get the chrome installer from official website of google. third party websites sometimes gives old versions of installer.

For firefox, update your firefox browser and visit on official…

Why Are Computers Unable to Boot Instantly?

With the newer, more powerful hardware and improved operating systems that we have available to use these days, why does it still take as long as it does to fully boot a computer up each time?
The Question

Computers have been around for quite some time. So what is stopping us from making computers boot instantly like regular home appliances and other devices? Is it even possible? I know there are ‘Hibernate’ and ‘Sleep’ options, but those aren’t really ‘real boot’.

Why are computers unable to fully boot up instantly? With the better, more powerful hardware that is available now, and the continuing improvement of operating systems, one would think that computers could fully boot up a lot quicker than they do these days.
The Answer

Computers are state machines. The problem is that the initial condition the computer starts with (which is, literally, instant) is not very useful to you and me. (Even after the first electron moves.)

What is useful to you and me is many millions of…

How to backup my computer ?

How to backup my computer before sending for repair?

Create an image backup of your hard drive or SSD. That way, if the professionals wipe your hard drive and reinstall Windows from scratch, you can restore all of your data files. And if they really mess things up, you can restore Windows to the way you had it set up before you sent it to them.

But be warned: If they had a good reason for reinstalling, restoring everything from the image backup could restore the problem that caused the necessity for repair in the first place. Check with the repair people to see if they think this is a good idea.

How to remove spyware from your computer

If you have spyware or other potentially unwanted software on your computer, you should use an antispyware scanner and removal tool to try to remove it. You can also try to remove spyware manually. You might need to use both of these methods more than once to completely remove the spyware or other potentially unwanted software.

Use an antispyware scanner and removal tool

Windows Defender is a feature in this version of Windows that can help prevent spyware and other potentially unwanted software from infecting your computer. When Windows Defender is on, you're notified if spyware and other potentially unwanted software tries to run or install itself on your computer. You choose whether to ignore, quarantine (move to a different location on your computer where it can't run), or remove each item that's detected.

Spyware scanners are also frequently included in antivirus programs. If you've already installed an antivirus program, check to see if that program i…

How To Manage Your PC Cables?

Cables hurt!
But it’s not your fault. You spend an hour or so arranging your desk, moving your monitor, setting up your speakers—the last thing on your mind is cable management. When it comes time to plug everything in, you just want to fire up your rig and commence fragging, or movie watching, or minesweeping. You don’t want to get arm-deep in the mucky muck you’ve created behind your computer. What you can’t see won’t hurt you, right?
Wrong. Given time, sloppy cable management always rears its ugly head. It never improves by itself, and, in fact, it gets worse with each new device you wire into your rig. But you don’t have to get crazy to get clutter free and connected. We’ve broken cable management into four easy steps, and you probably already have all the tools you need!
1. Untangle Your Cables
It goes without saying, be sure your computer is off before you start yanking every cable in sight. And pull gently.
The back of your computer can look bad enough if you’re a simp…
