- FILES SHARING MADE EASY, SECURE AND SPEEDY

There are millions of Videos, Music, Software and Games data and files floating around in the cyberspace. You name it, you have it. The most ancient and the most recent ones. Versions that had disappeared from the marketplace are aplenty. You just need to download almost for free.

There is an ever swelling surfers' communities, which recourse to usenet network to download whatever they are searching for, sharing files between members through p2p (point-to-point) files sharing system.

Usenet was created before the Internet (and is still independent from the Internet.) It consists of more than 60,000 boards for discussions (newsgroups) about every topic under the sun. Opinions and data (e.g. Videos, MP3s, Software, Games, Erotica) are exchanged in these boards.

There are score of software available to assist downloading these files: eDonkey, eMule, Ares, Torrent family and so on - (make research in your favorite search engine for links to said software.)

The problem is - as an Usenet community member - you have to give access to your system for other members to download from your hard disk. Therefore, there is a limitation to download speed that is connected to the uploading speed. The more leeching (uploading) members, the slower the downloading process. Further, there is a security risk as you do not know who is accessing your hard disk.

- BITTORENT FAMILY IS A STEP ABOVE OTHER FILES SHARING SOFTWARE

Bittorrent is one of the most popular p2p protocol designed for high-speed distribution of 100MB or GB sized files. (Click here for an introduction to Bittorrent).

BitComet is a p2p file-sharing freeware fully compatible with Bittorent. It is a powerful, clean, fast, and easy-to-use bittorrent client. It supports simultaneous downloads, download queue, selected downloads in torrent package, fast-resume, chatting, disk cache, speed limits, port mapping, proxy, IP-filter, etc.

Downloading a file in the 700MB range with a Bittorrent family of software using broadband connection could take 8 to 10 hours (up to 24 with other p2p files sharing system like Ares, Emule, eDonkey. Etc.)

In the BitTorrent family, BitComet had more capabilities. It features a Preview tool - with version 0.60 - in addition to a Favorites listing that make access to usenet's communities a snap. In these favorites myBittorent stands out of the crowd with a download speed that shorten the process to few minutes to an hour or two with a broadband connection - DSL or Cable. Further, files are classified into categories (Video, Music and so on that make file research and choice an easy step.)

However, with all there files sharing software you still have to cope with "uncontrolled" free access to the hard drive from communities' members, who are uploading.

- THE SOLUTION FOR FAST DOWNLOADING AND SECUTITY: USENEXT SYSTEM

UseNeXT offers very fast, anonymous and uncensored access to Usenet - and could be considered as the mother of all file sharing services. With UseNeXT's unique software, you get an easy-to-use access to Usenet communities and download whatever you are searching for at the maximum speed that your system can afford - and without uploading to communities members. Therefore, no security risks.

You choose a Movie to download and pronto within 20 to 60 minutes maximum (for 600MB to 1, 2, 3 GB) you have the file on your hard disk, that you could play with mainstream Movies' players (Windows Media Player, RealNetworks Real One) or more sophisticated Media players such as WinDVD, VLC Media Player.

UseNeXT is a paid service - contrary to most of BitTorent family system. When you subscribe to UseNeXT, you get (1) Access credentials to members' area of usenext.com and (2) Access credentials to a free UseNeXT software client.

You are entitled to 3 GB free download for 14-day trial period. Afterwards, you can chose monthly download packages from 10 GB to 50 GB for as low as 8 US$ per month to 25 US$ per month. Believe me, once you experienced UseNeXT fast downloading you never regret paying for the service.

In next issue 82 (February 15, 2006), we shall consider how to play downloaded files that have weird extensions such as bin, cue.

- WINDOWS WON'T SHUT DOWN?


After a heavy-load working day you click Start and Turn Off Computer and wait for Windows to shut down. And you wait and wait and nothing happen.

You certainly experienced what had been described in last sentence. This was a common occurrence with Windows 98 brand that now also happens with Windows XP when some utilities are installed on your computer. You may try the Exit option - right clicking on each program' system tray icons - to detect which utilities are responsible for Turn Off Commputer's lock down .

However, sometimes even that trick won't do. This is more probable as some applications just don't go well with Window's Hibernate or Suspend features.

You do not need to worry anymore. Here is ShutDown Lock a program that assist fixing the problem.

The program loads upon startup and sits quietly in the system tray. You can enable or disable it with one mouse click. If enabled, the program will either hibernate or suspend PC when a program prompts system shut down. This is a very valuable feature, because it prevents accidental data loss.

There are also (1) Turn Off Now, (2) Log Off Now and (3) Restart Now options that performed well. However, we have noticed that sometimes an utility may resist the "injunction" - such as Ad-Watch Plus from lavasoft.com's AdAware Plus or AdAware SE. In that case it is preferable to use Ctrl + ALt + Del to summonWindows Task Manager to End Process of Ad-Watch.exe before selecting Shutdown Lock's Turn Off Now.

Click here to get Shutdown Lock. 100% FREE.
