How to Allow or Block a Program through Windows Firewall

Today I will tell you how you can allow or block a program to be connected to the internet, from Control Panel but first we should know :-

Why do you need to block a program to be connected to the Internet?

Well, answer is so simple, "Because I dont want to update this Program anymore from its server on the Internet." In other cases, when you crack a Software or a PC Game or download a crack for your favorite PC Game, most of the times you will see a *.*txt file inside that Crack folder giving you instructions how to install that Game. And when you see "Block this game to be connected to the Internet from Control Panel > Windows Firewall.

If you are using your PC at Home for playing games in free time, very little chances you have installed any Antivirus software in your PC or if you are using a paid version of Antivirus software, you will open it mostly once in a week. But I would suggest you should open and read what's inside settings or inside advance settings, but never try to change any settings you are not familiar of.

If you look closer inside your Antivirus settings you will find the exact settings of allowing or blocking a program from Internet. But here I am showing your the same settings from Control Panel, in case you don't have any Antivirus Installed.

A look at my PC settings first, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate with AVG Free Antivirus Installed. Don't worry if you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 or any version of Windows 7, all you need to do is to find where that Control Panel is...

Follow me if you are using Windows 7.
1. Click Start
2. Type the word "Allow", you will see "Allow a program through Windows Firewall" on the top, press Enter or click on it.
NOTE: If you are using Windows 8 you can still find this settings under Control Panel.
3. This setting will be opened, where you can easily check the boxes to allow or block a program through Windows Firewall. In case you aren't able to click the boxes, make sure you clicked the "Change Settings" button (showing on the top right in the picture).

This is all done, once you blocked a program through Windows Firewall it will not be able to connect to internet anymore, and will not be updated.

As I mentioned before, you can also block a program through your Antivirus settings, if you have one.

Thanks for reading, your feedback will be appreciated.

How much RAM do you really need - PC Supporter

It doesn't always needed to add more memory for better performance or in other words more memory doesn't always means better performance. In fact, you may need less RAM than you think. Darien Graham-Smith at PC Pro 2014 explains.

Typically, today's budget PC's come with 4GB of RAM. A mid-range configuration may offer double that, and high-end gaming systems and workstations go as high as 16GB.
There's no doubt which way the wind's blowing, either: Windows 8 supports up to 128GB of physical memory (assuming your're running the 64-bit edition), while Windows 8 Pro can go up to 512GB.
Does anyone really need this much RAM? Memory isn't as expensive as it used to be, but there's obviously no point paying for gigabytes of RAM from which you'll receive no material gain.

Does more Memory means Faster Performance?
Many people assume that adding memory makes a PC significantly faster, and in some cases it does. Sticking an extra pair of DIMMs into a motherboard won't change the speed at which the processor executes code, but it can help in other ways, especially on older systems with 2GB or less RAM, since adding RAM reduces the need for Windows to rely on "virtual memory".

Tablet PC Guide - PC Supporter

2013 is the age of Modern technology - Touch Screen computing & Smart gadgets - The Tablet PC Guide 2013.


It's clear now that tablet PCs are no fad. Beginning with the launch of the high-price, low-powered iPad 1 in April 2010 and culminating with the release of the low-price, high-powered Nexus 7 in July 2012, tablets have gone from being a niche, luxury-only computing peripheral to the latest must-have accessory.
To keep up with technology in 2013, you either have a tablet or you're buying one soon.
However, the fast pace of the tablet world means you can be forgiven for struggling to keep up with the changes to software, hardware, pricing and manufacturing. Sometimes it seems like there's a new tablet every other week, each better and more desirable than the last. Rather than leave you to fend for yourself, we've put together this six-page guide to tablets in 2013 - those that are on Shelves now, those that are being released soon, what you might want to look for if you're buying a tablet and what, if anything, you should avoid.
