How to Recover Deleted MySpace Files?

MySpace is a social networking site that allows you to post pictures, videos, music, even documents and files. MySpace should not be used as the primary back-up for such files. But when your computer crashes, or files are lost, it can be a great way to recover lost items, even when it appears that they are missing from MySpace as well. Recover files lost on MySpace with File2HD, a free website downloading service.

Go to MySpace.com Find the page on which the lost file once resided and copy its URL, or web address, to the clipboard.

Go to File2HD.com, the free website download service.

Paste the URL copied from MySpace.com into the "URL:" box on File2HD.com's home page.

Underneath the "URL:" box, select the type of file that you are looking for. File2HD can find everything from images and videos, to stylesheets and online applications.

Click "Get Files" next to the "URL:" box and File2HD.com will display all the files of the type you specified that are connected to the MySpace page you provided. Search through the results to find the file you are looking for. Right-click and click "Save as..." for the file to save it to your desktop.

How to Find an IP Address Owner?

A domain name defines a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for a web page online. For example, "www.microsoft.com" is the domain name and the URL for the Microsoft home page. When a person or company registers a domain name, it is assigned to a static IP address.

Domain registrars maintain and publish records of domain name owners available to the public through the Whois database service. Though a few IP address search options are available, one easy-to-use and reliable option is the Network Solutions Whois Search, which is freely available.

Open a web browser and navigate to Network Solutions Whois Search or one of the other Whois search tools online.

Click the radio button for the "IP Address" search option.

Type the IP address into the input box and click "Search."

The results page will list the owner of the IP address and associated domain name. The records also display contact information for the owner of the domain.

How to Find Old Web Pages That May No Longer Be Around?

Old Web pages or websites may have been allowed to expire by the domain owner, or may have been taken off-line for any number of reasons. If you want to visit that website for a dose of nostalgia, or perhaps to find information not available elsewhere, you can visit the Internet Archive, sometimes called the Wayback Machine, which periodically nabs a snapshot of any website that hasn't specifically prohibited it.

Start your Internet browser and visit Archive.org. This website lists thousands of website archives, and anyone can browse through the listings.

Enter the URL of the website you want to find into the URL field in the Wayback Machine, then click "Take Me Back." Wait for the page to load; this could take a little while, depending on your Internet connection, current site traffic and how far the site has to dig through the archives.

Click the links that appear to see different versions of the website as it changed and evolved. The website owner most likely blocked archival if no links are found; double-check the URL you entered to make sure it was correct.

Internet Explorer 8 Closes Unexpectedly on Windows XP

Update Software and Drivers:
If Internet Explorer 8 is crashing frequently, your computer may need an update. You can access Windows Update through the "Safety" menu in the Command Bar in Internet Explorer. You can also update drivers for your devices through Windows XP. Click "Start," "Control Panel," "Performance and Maintenance" and "System." Select the "Hardware" tab, then click "Device Manager." Click the "Plus" sign beside a category to expand it, then right-click your device and select "Properties." If the device isn't working properly, click the "Update Driver" button.

Disable Add-ons:
Add-ons can cause your browser to crash if they're improperly installed or if they're incompatible with Internet Explorer 8. You can start IE 8 with add-ons disabled by clicking "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools" and "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." Another way to disable add-ons is through the menus in Internet Explorer. Open Internet Explorer 8, then click "Tools" and "Manage Add-ons." In the drop-down menu under "Show," select "All add-ons."

Choose "Windows Internet Explorer 8" from the list, then click "Remove."

Reset Internet Explorer Settings:
If all other solutions fail to prevent Internet Explorer 8 from closing without warning, you can reset it to its default settings.

To reset these settings, open Internet Explorer 8, then click "Tools" and "Internet Options." Click the "Advanced" tab, then click "Reset" twice. Click "Close," then close and restart Internet Explorer 8 to enable your changes.

How to Convert 2D Images to 3D Using Java 3D?

Instructions:

  1. Open your image in Java 3D.
  2. Select “ConvolveOp” from the “Filter” menu. This is the most useful tool for such conversions, as it can automatically get your image remarkably far along in the conversion.
  3. Click “Create” at the next window to implement the filter. Your image will now look a lot closer to the three-dimensional image you want.
  4. Select “Vector” from the “Insert” menu.
  5. Begin drawing vectors on your image along the perceived Z-axis -- which depends on your image contents -- to add three-dimensional details. If you have a bullet firing toward the viewer, for instance, one perceived Z-axis would be from the gun barrel to the bullet. Vector drawing can be a process of trial-and-error, particularly if you are new at it. Using "CTRL + Z" will undo any mistakes you make. Do not worry if your image looks a little choppy with the vectors added, because the next step will smooth it out.
  6. Run “Extrusion” from the “Tools” menu on the image. This is similar to the ConvolveOp in that it automates a basic 3-D process, but it works off the vectors you have, smoothing out the image and making it look more natural.
  7. See how the image looks. If you want to change it, undo the Extrusion ("CTRL + Z"), change the vectors accordingly and then redo the Extrusion. Keep doing so until you get the 3-D picture you want.
  8. Save the image.


Things You'll Need:

How to "Fix NTLDR is Missing" Error?

Things You'll Need:

  • Windows XP/2000 installation disc


Instructions:

  1. Locate your Windows XP/2000 installation disc and place it in your CD/DVD ROM drive. If you don't have this disk, then you cannot proceed further.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. When the computer restarts press any key on your keyboard when you are prompted, "Press any key to enter setup." Most computers are configured to boot to another device other than a hard drive. Since the Windows XP/2000 installation disk is bootable, you should see the prompt. However, if you don't see the prompt you may need to change your boot priority in your BIOS. To do so, enter the system BIOS by following the onscreen instructions upon startup. Then navigate to the Boot Priority menu and modify another device, such as a CD-ROM to boot prior to the hard drive. Then reboot your computer.
  4. After you have pressed any key, the Windows XP/2000 setup screen will appear. After loading, press the "R" key to repair the Windows installation. The screen will appear black. The computer requests which installation you would like to log in. Generally speaking, press "1" and "Enter." If you have more than one hard drive or more than one partition, the procedure may be different. You must know which hard drive or partition your Windows operating system is installed in. You are subsequently prompted for a password. If you haven't set up one up, you can just leave the query blank and press "Enter." The phrase "c:\WINDOWS>" and a blinking cursor subsequently appear.
  5. Type "copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\windows" (without quotes), where "D" is the letter of your CD/DVD ROM drive (your optical drive may be different, especially if you have more than one).
