Software is any set of instructions that directs a computer to perform specific tasks or operations. Computer software consists of programs, libraries and related non-executable data (such as documentation). Computer software is non-tangible, contrasted with computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers. Software written in a machine language is known as "machine code". However, in practice, software is usually written in high-level programming languages than machine language. High-level languages are translated into machine language using a compiler or interpreter or a combination of the two.

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

When there is a word in Microsoft Word 2016 that is spelled incorrectly the word will have a read unline under it.  If I drag the mouse across the word and right click one option is Add to Dictionary.  If I chose to do so, will it add that word to the Dictionary file for all Microsoft Word files on my computer or does each document have it's own dictionary?

Is their a software that I would be able to install on a windows xp pro machine that in the event of a crash I could take another computer with windows xp pro on it and point it to the backup of the software and be good to go?  Clone software?  Is that what it is called?  I know acronis has something like that.  I have a computer sitting beside my desk that is the exact make and model of the computer I am worried might crash.  It has to be windows xp if some of you are wondering why.  It's an old software that we need and they won't upgrade to another system.

Good reliable place to purchase software?

I've been purchasing s.w. MS Office, Windows etc.. from My Choice Software for a couple years now. The last 6 orders every time I order and try to use the key I end up having to go to their support where they have me try a few options which end up to be very time consuming; they always resolve the issue but like I said a waste of time..

can anyone recommend?

thanks

I would like to find out how to secure the tables in MS Express SqL Servers 2016, I’m totally shocked to what I saw today when a prospective client called me to showcase our software which also has both the MS Access Database (As Back End) and SQL Server as Back End. The client has a standard software off the shelf but can move around within tables in SQL Server 2014 freely and was able change setting from the same software, now because of what I saw I cannot supply my software with SQL Server Backend until I know how to protect the tables from intruders. It is now clear why he was calling for our software is because he massed the unprotected back end, thanks god, I have not yet started supplying the SQL Server as backend except MS Access 2016 which has the back end encrypt with a password.
(1)      If in Ms Access, we can encrypt the backend through a password how can we do the same with MS Express SQL Server 2016???????
(2)      If the there are ways of protecting the tables, then doesn’t that affect the users and re-linking the tables, though with Ms Access the re-link table manager has no problem with that, now how are about the MS SQL Server 2016????????

Regards

This is a planning in writing a vbscript to find out PC OS, service pack, missing patches, computer name, antivirus software installed, personal firewall, and so on. This vbscript was evaluated and works without problem. The "last piece" of the check that we are thinking to put in is the checking of PC for any possible infection of virus. How do we ensure that the pc is really virus-free? Can we write a script to check for some "run", "runonce", and other registry key and values? the objective is this seems to be a "preliminary" check for the virus infection, malware, spyware, and so on. MS Windows clients from windows 7 to windows 10.

If so, any sample for the script on this virus checking?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I'm looking for "firewall" software which I can install on my Windows 2008 server so clients can securily connect to this server.
Is this possible and which is a trustworthy vendor for this. I know I can also use the built-in but more and more systems like Apple do not really support it anymore and because this server is behind a shared connection a hardware firewall is not possible.

Thanks for your advice in this matter.

Best regards

Hi experts,

I have been trying for more than an hours to fine my software licenses and software for the MAP. I know they have just recently changed to the MPN. They have always made it difficult to find, but now it is more difficult than ever. I have been going round and round and round. I get to pages that show my company and logged in and my ID number. The URL says microsoftpartnernetwork right in it. I try Dashboard. I try the video. I seriously think I will not be able to use my software, which I recently paid for.

Any idea of what site I need to use. To make it even more difficult, most pages have the 50 options at the bottom of the page with the option of clicking on Action Pack and My software, etc., which just takes you to the exciting news that Microsoft has once again made it easier and yet harder to find by changing to Microsoft Partner Network.

Thanks.

How to automatically email the contents of a Windows folder?

We have an accounting application that can automatically generate report files, but it does not have the ability to automatically email them.  

Does anyone know of an SMTP command line, or free/inexpensive software that will allow us to take the contents of a given Windows folder and email them as attachments on an automatically scheduled basis?

More info:  We do NOT have the flexibility to purchase and install Microsoft Outlook for this purpose.  We CAN use Mozilla Thunderbird in conjunction with FireDaemon so that we have a MAPI-compliant email program running in the background... or, as mentioned above, perhaps we could use an SMTP command line using a Gmail SMTP server.

Is anyone familiar with software tools that could help determine what values in a list make up a total?  For instance, if I am reconciling a bank statement and looking for values from a list that add up to (for example) $900?

The list might includes:

List
129
168
169
120
117
185
179
116
198
149
172
144
76
155
129

The example is relatively simple, but I hope you get the idea.  The values in the list that add up to 900 in this example are:  120 185 198 149 172 76.  Thanks.  - Tom

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

I have a GPO that I have created that is meant to install an application using an .msi file. In the GPO I have configured the Software Installation that is using the DC as the source. It has been moved up the link list, and is enforced and Link Enabled. As of this time, it is only assigned to my user for testing purposes. But when I log in to a computer, it does not install the specified software.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows 10 on my Lenovo laptop.  I have several different file management software programs, but none of them enable me to look through the picture files for sorting/selecting by seeing larger images of the photos than that permitted by the Windows Explorer "Extra Large Icons" view.  It isn't practical to have to open all the photos in one of my image programs (which, of course, would enable me to see them full screen), since I'm sorting through thousands.  Is there a file management program that can provide really large (or, even better, scalable) icons?  I thought that the now-defunct PowerDesk software allowed this.

Thanks (and Merry Christmas),

Need speedy IP camera solution. I have a close friend that needs a security camera setup as soon as possible. The family is in a remote area and they are experiencing an issue with trespassers, weirdos or parties unknown and fear for safety. I am thinking that I saw some sort of software that would enable a person to simply plug in an IP camera into the router and use the software to monitor and record 24/7. Law enforcement has been notified of this problem but cannot do much until they can identify the vehicle that is causing the difficulty. It is very worrisome  to them since they have two very young children. As an immediate albeit temporary solution I have two IP cameras that I was going to let them use. If an expert could view the specs on the camera and does know of a software program that would suffice that would be most appreciated. I do own Blue Iris software that I never used. I do not know if Blue Iris is capable of doing this job or not. The cameras that I have available are:
1. IR NETWORK CAMERA   DS-2CD2032-1   4MM   12/2014    V5.2.0_140721  Bullet camera  (Actual manufacturer unknown)

2. HOSAFE BRAND  1MB1W  720P  ONVIF H.,264  Bullet camera.

What they are looking for is an immediate solution using one of these two cameras if possible.

Note: I am posting another semi-related question  within a hour.

Good evening !
Having had to buy a new computer, I tried to transfer my Acrobat XI Pro from my old hard disk to the new one.
After many trials to make it work, I finally found out that my soft was a "fake" one, according to the Adobe official site, which did not recognize my user key.

I bought it (~$300.-) from "Buy Tech Solutions" in 2015. At the time it downloaded without problem and worked perfectly all those years….
I did a research on Internet and found a news Item confirming that "Buy Tech Solutions" went out of business un 2016 (?) and most probably was a "pirate" company.
I also found out that Adobe discontinued downloaded type of software and only works with monthly/yearly subscriptions on products that are linked to the Cloud.
As far as I am concerned, I DO NOT want to send my personnal documents, photos or anything on whatever Cloud that be.

I thus want to buy a soft that I can download on my computer and use only therein.
Searching the Inernet I found "PDF Creator 10" from "Software Marketing Ltd.".

Thus, my question is :
Is "Software Marketing Ltd." to be trusted and is its product safe ? In order for me to avoid the mishap described above.

Thanking whoever will be kind enough to enlighten me, I wish the Community a very happy Christmas !

With kind regards,
Newbye
