You can make your program windows transparent in Windows 2000 or late versions, using a very lite freeware known as Glass2k. Transparent windows are helpful to me and gives a good geeky appearance to Windows Desktop.glass2k properties You can download glass2k from here, it does not need to be installed, you can simply double click to start it, whenever you’ll right click on any window, it will ask you to set its transparency. It is very easy to use software and it is also having a feature to set any windows on top, according to your choice.



Productivity Tip:- You can use glass2k in way to increase your productivity, as it will prevent you switching between windows, and you can do two works at time, like I keep browsing my computer by making explorer windows transparent and watching through my e-mail account.

Securing Wi-Fi Connection at Home

wirelessI’ve recently bought  new laptop, and created partitions on its hard disk. Now, I’ve got Wi-Fi modem installed in my home. So, to prevent from my neighbours or some outsiders sharing connection, I need to secure it…

I am using BSNL broadband connection, in PPPOE mode, which makes the connection more unsecure, as password is saved inside modem itself. So, I’ve found a way to secure my Wireless connection using WEP security key.


WEP security can be setup by following these steps-

Modem / Router Settings

  • Visit http://192.168.1.1 and give Username: admin Password : admin
  • Now click on Security Tab, then click in Security
  • Chose your SSID and click Enable WEP Encryption, and chose encryption strength as 128 bit or stronger
  • Set the network key, which will be used as password to access wireless connection.
  • Save and Apply the settings

Windows Settings

  • Now, you’ve to do similar settings in your Wi-Fi access device too.
  • For setting in Windows Vista, double click the Networking Icon in taskbar.
  • Your security enabled network SSID will be listed there, right click that network, and select properties.
  • Now, give the same WEP key , which you earlier gave in setting up of modem

And you are done, with setting up of your modem for secure Wireless connection. For more details, you can see the video posted below

error-report Windows error reporting is made to support Microsoft to improve the bugs found in OS, but sometimes this error reporting causes annoyance. This problem I was facing for last so many days…, getting error report message whenever I exit from my favorite DOS based game Dave. It also happens with some soft wares too…. So, I got to remove this and used my ultimate tool “Google Search”Happy
