Checking Your Internet Browser’s Security Settings

IE7_128Your web browser has its own security guard on duty that checks incoming files for potential threats. If you try to enter information such as a credit card number on a form that’s not secure, the web browser displays a warning message asking if you want to continue. If a site attempts to install a program on your PC, your browser displays a confirmation dialog box or a warning near the top of the window asking for permission to download and install the program.
With most browsers, the default security settings are fine, but they may be a little on the aggressive side, warning you too much. In any event, checking your browser’s security settings is usually a good idea, just in case your browser has a setting you’d like to change. To check security settings in Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, and then the Security tab.
If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, check the browser’s help system for information on how to enter your security preferences. All browsers have security features, although they all handle them a little differently.

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is.
