Those of you who’ve tried out Google Talk know that you can make voice calls with the application. Unfortunately, you can’t make conference calls, one of the complaints about the new application, or can you? Here’s a quick tip (ok, more like a hack) which will let you make conference calls using Google Talk.
I cannot stress enough how much of a hack this is, so if you don’t want to bother doing some work, don’t try it as I’m sure Google will add this feature later on. Google Talk allows the use of various parameters, one of them being /nomutex which allows running multiple instances of the application. We’ll exploit this to create our conference chain.
Open an instance of Google Talk.
Now browse to the Google Talk directory (C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk) and create a shortcut for the application. Right-click the shortcut and in the properties change the target to C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe /nomutex then run this shortcut.
Get your buddies to open two instances of Google Talk, each (yes, with the /nomutex parameter as well).
Now you’ll need to form a chain: person one calls person two, person two calls person three, person three calls person one, and so on. Yeah, not very pretty.

Today a friend of mine asked that his registry editor had been disabled accidently and now how should he enable it back again. Here are two ways to enable the registry editing in Windows.
1- From Group Policy Editor
Go to Run –> gpedit.mscIn the left hand menu, go to User Config –> Administrative Templated –> System.Now In the right hand pane, select “Prevent access to registry editing tools”. It will probably be not configured or enabled. If it’s enabled, disable it and if it’s not configured, first enable it, apply settings and then disable it. Most probably the settings have been applied instantly. If not, then run gpupdate in command prompt to apply the group policies.
2- From the Run Menu
I got this tweak while surfing the internet. Go to Start –> Run, copy and paste the follow in the Run box and press OK.
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
The effects are usually instant. If not then you should see the results after restarting your computer.
Please tell us your experiences on this tweak.

A few days back, a client came to me and told me that he was having trouble with his Windows XP. The show hidden files and folders was not working at all. If he selected the radio button “Show hidden files and folders”, and then press Ok .. the changes would just disappear upon opening the dialog again. It was probably some virus attack after which the Windows registry was not being updated properly. So here is what I did to restore it back.
Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.Go to this key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AdvancedIn the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect. Mine have already been fixed :-). Please spare a few moments from your precious time and tell us about your experiences

How does the Ravmon Virus affects your PC?
When you Open any drive in My Computer by right clicking, the Context menu will have a chinese like language & when you click on this language on context menu, the drive will not open but the Open With dialouge will ask you to “Choose the program you want to use to open this file:”. Also by double clicking any drive same thing happens.
Context Menu and OpenWith Dialogue will look like this.
The Ravmon virus does also corrupt your Folder Options. So when you open Folder Options and try to check “Show hidden files and folders” and click ok. My Computer will not show hidden files, also “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)” option will not be working.
Folder Options Dailogue
removal tool available at:::: http://www.od3n.net/download/

Error launching Task Manager, Registry Editor and Command prompt which is also solved by this tool
How Does the Ravmon Virus Spread?
Ravmon Virus mostly spreads from USB Flash drives. So to prevent this virus from breaking into your pc you must start an Anti-Virus before plugining a Flash drive into your pc.
For Removing Ravmon virus and its effects I have created a tool. Just download it, run it and Restart your computer.

Comparison - the human basic nature! »
Bharatstudent.com - the biggest SPAM?
I’m not sure if you have heard of yet another social networking site Bharatstudent.com . May the following figures enlighten you about it a bit.
Company Info: [As per whois of domain]
Axill Europe Ltd
Quay House, 2 Admirals Way, Marsh WallLondon , E149XG, UK
Phone: 44(0)20 7190 3353 fax: 44(0)20 7190 firstname.lastname@example.org
Worldwide Ranking: 2251

India Rank: 34
[Source: http://www.alexa.com/site/ds/top_sites?cc=IN&ts_mode=country〈=none ]
At Launch : Priyanka Chopra [Youtube Video source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49FucM-Xwoo ] At Taj.
So from above figures you can make out that it is a rocking site, having quite huge traffic. Now ever wondered how they probably be doing marketing of the site? Can you believe if I tell you that Bharatstudent.com is one of the BIGGEST SPAMMERS? Well, the below research of mine might help you understand this.
If you’re a member at Orkut.com, login there and go to any category [mostly sex, relationship related category], there you will observe some posts like below:
Hot Video of Nude Actress Ravina Tempting for Sex
Open any of the post from above, and you will see message something like below:
“Hot Video of Nude Actress Ravina Tempting for SexHI Friends….,Amaging Hot Video of Nude Actress Ravina Tempting for Sex With * Star in Hotel Room …Don’t Miss This Is A Real Spy Video Ever Seen…..Here is the Link :: ravins.notlong.com (Copy and paste the Link in Browser)Just Sign up It Takes 1 min and watch the video. There r so many Hot Videos. Its FreeWarning: Below 18yrs Don’t See ”
which obviously is posted by some girl name, which is a fake profile created only for the purpose of spamming. Now, open the above link ravins.notlong.com and see which page you reach. Yes, you will be taken to some page of www.bharatstudent.com
Now, can you guess the amount of posting of such messages in various orkut communities? Well, they do start it right from morning say 09:00 a.m. (or early) and it goes on still evening 08:30 p.m. [Well, so far I have noticed this time as I leave my office at 08:30, so they may be posting then after too, but hasn’t checked it].
And the interesting part is, they are using all the abused words like “Sania Mirza MMS”, “Girl Repped in Apartment”, “Nude Clips of College Girls”. See the below subjects of their posts at orkut which I have taken from a community named “Want Sex” [ http://www.orkut.com/CommTopics.aspx?cmm=19731312 ]
10th student press a mteacher boobs in bus [Reply]
And you can see that all the fake profile names are of female. So now just wonder that having Orkut lacks of visitors a day, how many visitors Bharatstudent.com be having by such HUGE SPAMMING? I think, more than 10000 at least, if not more.
They are using Short URL service of website www.notlong.com, which gives a short URL for the long URL, so what they are doing is, they are getting such short URL as “yourname.notlong.com” for their long URL of Bharatstudent.com
What my question is, is that worthy enough for such a website to do this kind of spamming? And how come Orkut hasn’t noticed it? Why Orkut hasn’t taken any steps against them so far? This is insane spamming, I must say. I mean, anytime of the day, in any community what all you find is such crap messages of Bharatstudent.com That is truly a pathetic way of fetching visitors to own website.
But still, there may be another possibility behind this huge spamming. Bharatstudent.com pays you for the number of Impressions you generate to their site. So perhaps, some other guys be dong such huge spamming to earn with Bharatstudent.com but this is not what I can believe, because it’s a tough job and no one would do this much of work to earn few dollars a day. But who knows, earth is full of beggars so some people in group might be doing this.
And secondly, what feeling I have is, they’re using some ‘ready-made’ software for Spamming, that they put a common message in that software and it gets posted in all the communities they have joined with that particular fake profile. And it has got more chances, because those who are doing such huge spamming, can not be small guys, they can do it all what it takes to do such huge spamming.
So far, I have observed such spamming of Bharatstudent.com only at Orkut, hasn’t seen it anywhere else, so cant’ say in that way, but this is truly insane. I mean, if some spammers do such things, we can understand that, but a popular site like Bharatstudent.com can do it, it is just insane.
Well, here I’m not saying that it’s Bharatstudent.com who is after such spamming, there may be those guys too who want to earn with it, so here we got two possibilities, either 1. Bharatstudent.com themselves or 2. Those guys who want to earn with Bharatstudent.com, but in both ways, it’s Bharatstudent.com who loses their credibility by Spamming making use of all those porn, sexual, abusive words.
I mean, they have the symbol of Taj Mahal on their homepage, and spamming is done

WHOEVER DOESNT SEND THIS MESSAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILLBEDEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST YOU $ 10.00 A MONTH TO USE IT.."""""""
I would just like to inform u people about some common misconceptions…
Misconception #1: ORKUT IS DELETING PROFILES
Orkut is NOT deleting profiles!
Orkut is run by google which is having a 300% growth in terms of revenue for this fiscal year!
They can handle any abysmal requirement of processing power or space!
They are NOT experiencing any information processing or storage problems as yet!
Misconception #2: YOU CAN GET PAID BY FORWARDING AN E-MAIL
Until Today, Sunday, 21st Sept 2006, there is no way to keep track of where a mail gets forwarded!
Microsoft will not know if I send a mail from google server to my friend (EVEN IF IT IS A FORWARDED MAIL) unless you explicitly execute some code or click some link!
However may I wish, I have no means to know whether my friend is forwarding the mail I sent to him or not. Nor does Microsoft, Google or any other corp. or inc.
Misconception #3: WOMAN TAKING A ROHYPNOL PILL WILL NEVER CONCEIVE
Are all men and women undergoing a surgery for family planning DUMB?
Woman cannot be made incapable of conceiving by dropping a pill in her drink.
Rohypnol is used as a sedative and pre-anesthetic.
It is called “Rape Date Drug” because it is extremely potent, especially with alcohol.
It initially makes a person dizzy and disoriented and with time makes it difficult to speak or move before the person passes out.
Due to this effect, this drug is used by rapists to incapacitate their victims.
Such victims have no memories of what happened WHILE UNDER the drug’s influence. (They can perfectly remember what they were doing before getting sedated)
It is illegal (in the U.S but not in Europe and Canada)
No comments about emotional messages appealing a person to forward a mail because it will either…
suddenly make his love of life realize that she should call him/she should meet him/She should fall in love with him!
or increase life expectancy of himself or his father/mother/brother/sister/any other relatives!
or make something “GOOD”(?) happen in his life!
or earn him an unexpected fortune!
or because some poor/crippled/terminally infected/just infected/dying person will get money for every mail you forward!(I do not mean to disrespect the intentions but it is pointless as your forwards cannot be tracked)
or just because it is part of a world record attempt!
or because this e-mail is part of “chain” that many people have kept or going for no particular reason so you should also do the same!
AND THAT STUPID CRUSH THING DOES NOT POP UP IF YOU FORWARD THAT LOONEY MAIL……..
the only way of knowing your crush is if both the people add each other to their own crush list.
there is NO WAY of knowing anyone else’s crush’s or your own, if none of the above happens. -- best regards,ISSUED IN PUBLIC INTEREST BY :::MuDiT LaWaNiA
