When managing client computers through the Kaspersky Administration Kit, a status and description for one or more of the client computers may show that there are unprocessed objects. Running a virus scan does not seem to fix this. So how do you make the computer status go back to OK?
In the left navigation pane of Kaspersky Administration Kit, expand Repositories, located at the bottom. Then, select Unprocessed Files. From there you can view the objects in question and the action that Kaspersky took to protect against them. You will have the option to Disinfect Files or Delete them from the client computer. After the file(s) are processed, the computer status should go back to OK. To be cautious, it would be best to run another virus scan on the client computer in question.
Sharing a computer with other users means that any files or folders that should be kept private are vulnerable to prying eyes. Maybe you have important work documents, or maybe you have a few inappropriate photos and your mother would be appalled if she ever laid eyes on them. Either way, we all have items that we want kept private.
Unfortunately, Windows does not have this feature directly built in. I realize that it is 2013, and by now they should have something so trivial integrated into their operating systems, but they must not have gotten that memo.
-The first option to prevent other users from opening your private folders would be to deny permissions for other users. This option is only viable when more than one login is used on the computer. If another user is logged in and tries accessing the folder they will get an error stating that they do not have permission to view said folder.
To do this, right-click on the private folder and click Properties. Go to the Security tab, and click Edit. Make sure that your account is listed and the box is checked to Allow full control. Click Add to add the other users to the list, and check Deny for the full control settings. Deny full control for the Everyone and Users groups as well. Click OK when finished.
-Another, less secure option would be to hide the folder. However, if other users are able to see hidden files, folders, and drives they will be able to see your folder as well. To find this setting you must be logged into the computer as the other user. Type Folder Options in the search in Windows 7. In Windows XP, open up any windows explorer folder (i.e., My Computer, My Documents, My Pictures, etc.). Click Tools, Folder Options, then click the View tab. Make sure that Show hidden files, folders, and drives is not selected for this user.
To hide the folder, right-click on it and go into Properties. Check the box next to Hidden at the bottom of the General tab.
-Encrypting folders is another option. Go back into the General tab in the folder’s properties. Click the Advanced button at the bottom. This opens the Advanced Attributes window. Check the box at the bottom to Encrypt contents to secure data.
Encrypting folders is the strongest protection to keep information secure that is offered by Windows. After encrypting a folder or file for the first time, back up your encryption certificate. If you lose the certificate and key you won’t be able to access the encrypted folders or files.
To decrypt the folder or file, clear the check box to Encrypt contents to secure data.
-Alternatively, you could use external software to password-protect folders and files. Free versions of the software sometimes require you to zip the folder. Zipping and unzipping the folder to access the files every time can be tedious but may be worth it to protect those files and folders. Some free versions of software are Folder Protector and Free Folder Hider.
- One last option would be to create a batch file. The link shows you how another user created the batch file. This option is for advanced users only.
Below are the steps to create a rule in Outlook to auto forward mail from one folder to another.
First, Outlook 2010:
At the top of the screen on the Home tab in the Move category is the Rules drop-down menu. From the drop-down, select Create Rule.
In the dialog box that opens select the conditions you would like to apply to the rule. In the example below, any message that is delivered to my Inbox with the subject line Hello World will automatically be forwarded to the sub-folder named Keep. There are other options that you can select, for instance, playing a sound.
Second, Outlook 2007:
Click on Tools on the menu bar, and select Rules and Alerts…
In the window that opens click on New Rule…
The Rule Wizard will open. Select the template for your new rule, and click Next.
Now check the box or boxes for the conditions of the new rule. Once the boxes are checked the conditions have to be added to the description. Click on the highlighted words in blue to set the descriptions.
From there you can add any exceptions to the rule. Then click Next.
I have not been able to post as often as I would like lately. I have been a busy bee studying for the CCNA 640-802 exam. Has anyone taken, and/or do you have any suggestions, hints, or tips? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am currently reading the book Exam Prep CCNA 640-802.
I cannot stress enough the importance of backing up your files and creating system images or restore points. Also, DO NOT lose the installation discs that came with your computer. You will be kicking yourself later when your computer crashes, you get a virus, forgot your password, etc. It is almost inevitable that at some point you will need to recover your information. Make sure that you are able to access it.
