How do you download a hi-speed USB host controller?
For the most part, the High Speed USB controller will be integrated right onto the motherboard of your system. You will sometimes run into this problem when upgrading to or installing a new version of XP, for sometimes it does not readily have the drivers available. What you have to do is to actually find out the motherboard that you have in your system, and download, or request the CD, that has the motherboard resources on it, in order to get Windows to install that particular controller. If you have a name brand computer, you should be able to contact the manufacturer to get the CD or download. However, if you have built the system, or someone else has built you the system, you will need the CD that came with the motherboard. A controller in a computer system (new or old) is a physical device that controls anything externally attached to it. For example, a hard disk controller (which is internally connected to today's motherboards) controls the hard drive connected to it. I think what you mean is downloading the 2.0 high speed driver for XP and if you do your windows updates it will usually install that driver for you. Unless I am misunderstanding what you are trying to do. If you mean the computer is seeing your USB 2.0 as a USB 1.1 then you go into device manager and tell it to update your driver to get a refresh on the device and a USB 2.0 driver downloaded/applied to the device.

What does seeding mean in torrent?
The people sharing & connected to each other using the bit-torrent protocol are split into 2 categories. SEEDS(uppers) & LEECHERS(downloaders) In the begining while downloading a torrent for the first time you are a leecher because the download hasn't completed. When it completes you switch to a seeder and dedicate that stream to simply uploading. The more seeds available the faster the download. Seeding is the process of connecting to a torrent when you have a complete file. Yes it is important to seed 1 to 1. The more seeders there are on a torrent the faster the torrent is. You are not downloading the torrent from the actual site you get it from. You are downloading it off another user that has it on their computer. Let's say someone uploads a torrent to a site and that person seeds at 100kbps. At first every single leecher is trying to get the file from the uploader which if there are 10 leechers then each leecher is approximately getting the file at 10kbps. Let's say the 10 people finish downloading the torrent from the uploader. Each also is seeding at a speed of 100kbps. That means the total speed of the torrent after the 10 get done downloading the file is 1100kbps. Because 10 are seeding at 100kbps and the original uploader is seeding at 100kbps. So if there are 11 more leechers getting the file now each of those leechers are approximately getting the file at 100kbps instead of 10kbps because there is a 1 to 1 ratio per seeder & leecher. If everyone just downloaded the file from the uploader and stopped seeding without seeding the torrent 1:1 then the uploader will always be stuck seeding. Which the speed of the torrent will hardly go up because the leechers will always outnumber the seeder. So it is important to seed back at least what you take. So if you download a file that is 1GB then seed back 1GB. That is why it is called FILE SHARING. People are considerate enough to share their stuff you can repay them back by seeding back what you take so others can enjoy it as well.

How can you prevent your Internet homepage from continuously defaulting to 'about blank'?
You need to run these 5 essential steps to remove all the spyware on your computer. 1. Run Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) 2. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot 4. Run Superantispyware 5. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt! Install threat fire which will enhance your antivirus protection Preventing an Internet Page Error Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: In Internet Explorer go to the Web page that you want your default page to be (I use Google, but it can be any page). Click on 'Tools' and select 'Internet Options'. Select the 'General' tab and under the 'Home' section click on the button marked 'Use Current'. The next time you open IE it should start with the page of your choice. I am going through the same thing. I believe it is the Trojan Horse "StartPage" that is causing it. Check the entries re: StartPage for more info. Good Luck. I've just suffered from this same problem and I found it to be caused by "DSO Exploit". I found it with the help of "Spybot- Search and Destroy". To actually get rid of it, you'll need to search the net for a small DSO protection app called "dsostop2.exe". If this is the problem, the DSO won't let 'Internet Options' revert the home page to your choice so, as far as I can find, this is the only cure. On the download page for dsostop2.exe there are full instructions for applying it. Good luck!! I paid �16.91 for a program that could be seen to be the modern equivalent of a hucksters snake oil for headaches, within minutes about:blank was back. Sounds like you have the horrible about:blank virus that I finally "killed" after a week of torture. The home page continuously changes to an "about:blank" even if you manually set your home page via the internet options. I ran (many, many times) the Avast, McAfee, shredder, etc. to no avail. However, I noticed the McAfee virus scan consistently indicated that all but one virus had been deleted. At wits end, I jotted the file's name and searched for it. Once the file was located, I renamed the file and then deleted it. It worked!! If that's what's happening to you, try the following: 1) Run a virus scan to locate the file(s) that were not deleted during the scan; 2) Write the file name as shown in the scan; it may end with .dll; 3) Go to start, search file or folder, and search for the file name indicated from the scan; 4) Once located, right click and rename it to something like "virus"; 5) Right click the new name and delete the file. If more than one file is shown as undeletable, you must go through this procedure for each file. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main. Double click a string value that is "Start Page" and enter the Web address that you want to set ..... make sure that your registry is not readonly.

What is a web server?
A web server is essentially a computer prorgam which is responsible for handiling HTTP requests. A browser request to view a page the server then accepts the request and displays the page. From a general point of view we consider web servers as the storage area for files which are available on the web. So in order for any page to be viewable on the web it must be loaded on to the web server. A web server is usually a dedicated piece of hardware and software used to allow a website to be displayed on the net. Answer Web server for example gmail . yahoo are the server , having pop http features . Answer-- Web servers are computers on the internet that host websites, serving pages to viewers upon request. This service is referred to as web hosting. Every web server has a unique address so that other computers connected to the internet know where to find it on the vast network. The IP (Internet Protocol) address looks something like this: xx.xx.xxx.116. This address maps to a more human friendly address. Web hosts rent out space on their web servers to people or businesses to set up their own websites. The web server allocates a unique website address to each website it hosts. When you connect to the internet, your personal computer also receives a unique IP address assigned by your ISP (internet service provider). This address identifies your computer's location on the network. When you click on a link to visit a website, your browser sends out a request to that IP address. This request includes return information and functions like a postal letter sent across town, but in this case the information is transferred across a network. The communiqué passes through several computers on the way, each routing it closer to its ultimate destination. When your request reaches its destination, the web server that hosts said website sends the page in HTML code to your IP address. This return communique travels back through the network. Your computer receives the code and your browser interprets the HTML code then displays the page for you in graphic form. The more powerful the server, the faster it can serve up website pages. Slower, smaller servers may result in frustrating lag time for viewers. High traffic can also slow servers that are not powerful enough to handle high volumes of data exchange. This lag time should be a concern if you are shopping for a web host. Most web hosts have a page dedicated to sharing technical information about their web server, including speed, capacity, network configuration and other details. In theory, web servers stay connected to the Internet 24/7, 365 days a year. In truth they experience occasional downtime due to maintenance and technical problems. Web servers with consistent records of an uptime of 99.5% or better are considered reliable. A computer that manages Web site services, such as supplying a Web page to multiple users on demand. ^^mukx

What is the video '3 Guys 1 Hammer'?
"3 Guys 1 Hammer" Also known as the Dnepropetrovsk Killers/Maniacs. This is a real brutal SNUFF (murder) video that has been circulating the Internet about 3 Ukrainian/Russian teenagers who beat a man to death with a hammer, stabbed him, tortured him and pulled out his eyes with a screwdriver. YouTube has pulled it off their site - as have many others websites. It is the most graphic, violent and evil thing to see. You are watching a man being killed and actually die on video. Don't watch it; there are some things that don't ever need to be seen. It cannot be erased from your memory. The names of the Dnepropetrovsk killers are: Igor Suprunyuck, Viktor Sayenko and Alexander Hanzha. The 3 defendants (sociopaths), who proudly made this evil video and others of themselves murdering people, were found guilty on February 11, 2009, of murdering the man in the named video - as well as 20 others - attacking 29 people in all "for their fun" in the span of less than a month between 25th June - 16th July 2007. The victims ranged from a 14-year-old boy to women to elderly cancer patients. Suprunyuck and Sayenko were sentenced to life imprisonment; Hanzha received nine years in prison for these indiscriminate killings.

Asked in Inventions, Internet, History of the Web
What is some information about the invention of the internet?
Invention of the Internet Many people think that the Internet is a recent innovation, when in fact the fundamental ideas behind the Internet have been around for over a quarter century. The development of what we now call the Internet started in 1957 when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first satellite, beating the United States into space. The powers behind the American military at the time became highly alarmed as this meant that the USSR could theoretically launch bombs into space, and then drop them anywhere on earth. In 1958 the concerns of people in the US military triggered the creation of the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). DARPA's initial role was to jump start American research in technology, find safeguards against a space-based missile attack and to reclaim the technological lead from the USSR. After only 18 months after the creation of DARPA, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency had developed and deployed the first US satellite. DARPA went on to have a direct contribution to the development of the Internet by appointing Joseph Licklider to head the new Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO). It was the job of the IPTO to further the work previously done by members of the "SAGE" (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) program and develop technologies to protect the US against a space-based nuclear attack. Licklider envisaged the potential benefits of a countrywide communications network, influencing his successors to implement his vision and to hire Lawrence Roberts who at that time was carrying out research with networks which was also being funded by DARPA. Roberts led development of the ARPANet network architecture, and based it on the new idea of packet switching. A special computer called an Interface Message Processor was developed to realise the design. The ARPANet first went live in October 1969, with communications between the University of California in Los Angeles and the Stanford Research Institute. The first networking protocol used on the ARPANet was the Network Control Program. In 1983, it was replaced with the TCP/IP protocol, which is still the standard used today. In 1990, the National Science Foundation took over management of what was then called the NSFNet, and significantly expanded its reach by connecting it to the CSNET in Universities throughout North America, and later to the EUnet throughout research facilities in Europe. Thanks in large part to the NSF's free-thinking management, and the growing popularity of the web, the nature of the Internet changed quickly in 1992, when the U.S. government began pulling out of network management and commercial entities offered Internet access to the general public for the first time. This change marked the beginning of the Internet's astonishing expansion. According to a survey conducted by CommerceNet and Nielsen Media Research in 1997, the number of users worldwide was believed to be well into the tens of millions. The so called Internet explosion coincided with the advent of increasingly powerful yet reasonably priced personal computers with easy-to-use GUI's (Graphical User Interfaces). The result was an attraction of recent computer converts to the Internet, and new multimedia capabilities, the size, scope and design of which allows users to: connect easily through ordinary personal computers exchange electronic mail with friends and colleagues post and update frequently, information for others to access access multimedia information that includes sound, photographic images and video access diverse attitudes and perspectives from around the world to directly and transparently communicate between computers Today, the Internet is not owned or funded by any one institution, organisation, or government, it is a self-sustaining widespread information infrastructure accessible to hundreds of millions of people world-wide. The Internet is, however, directed by the Internet Society (ISOC), which is composed of volunteers. ISOC appoints the IAB (Internet Architecture Board) sub-council, the appointed members of which decide on standards, network resources, and network addresses. The day-to-day issues of Internet operation is taken care by of curtsy of a volunteer group called the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). In brief a small number of governing boards work to establish common standards, few rules or single organisation bind the Internet, essentially the Internet is in the most part an ungoverned global network of networks. Other s The Internet was invented by the US Department of Defence as a means of communication if we were attacked by Russia. That was in 1969. The WWW on the other hand was invented by an Englishman called Tim Berners-Lee in Switzerland in 1989. The Internet dates back to the 1950s and 60s, although few of us knew of it then as it was part of the American defence system. Some say development started in 1957 when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first satellite. I think it's the difference between pop culture and invention that confuses people. The origins of the Internet stretch back to the 1950s and the invention of the World Wide Web to 1989, but the Internet IS a newish innovation as far as pop culture is concerned as it only really kicked into the lives of the vast majority of us after the 1989 invention of WWW. DARPA was created in 1958. But this only started the research that led to create the Internet. The Network Control Protocol (NCP) was finalized and deployed in December 1970 by the Network Working Group (NWG), led by Steve Crocker. But it was not until RFC 768 "User Datagram Protocol", RFC 791 "Internet Protocol", RFC 792 "Internet Control Message Protocol, RFC 793 "Transmission Control Protocol" were ratified in 1980 and 1981 that the Internet took shape. Modern protocols like e-mail, ftp, telnet, http ... all depend on these underlying protocols. The ARPANET host protocol was switched from NCP to TCP/IP as of January 1, 1983. The underlying protocols that run the Internet have fundamentally changed since this date. Much later on Mar. 11, 1999 Al Gore claims to have invented the Internet: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet." References: http://www.isoc.org/internet/history/brief.shtml The seed of what would become the internet was created by ARPANET in 1969. It was basically a group of researchers working for the Department of Defense.
Asked in Internet, Electrical Engineering
How tall are power lines?
It depends on the voltage, the sag of the line, and the distance between towers. Generally there is a minimum height that the power line must be above the ground, defined by voltage level. If the geography requires there to be a great distance between structures (such as a river crossing), the towers will be made tall enough to accomodate this. In general, the lower voltage lines may be as short as 25 feet, while taller ones can be over 200 feet.

What does php mean at the end of an url?
Websites are servers that present pages as they are requested. Pages, in this context, are merely different kinds of files -- much like images and word documents. The "php" appended at the end of a URL indicates you are requesting a PHP type file, which is composed with the PHP language. PHP is a programming language that stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor." It is used to develop websites that present dynamic content and allow page-to-page interaction, such as forums and wikis.

When the trust relationship between a workstation and domain has broken down how can you fix it?
One Way: When you try to log-on or connect to a computer and you receive an error stating: "the trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed," don't panic. In order to fix this problem, you remove the workstation from the domain by accessing it with a local administrator account and then rejoining it to the domain. Step by step: * Log-on on locally to the workstation with a local administrator account. * Right click "My Computer" and select properties * XP: Select the tab Computer name VISTA / Windows 7: Select change settings next to the computer name * Click on Change * Change the Member of selection to WorkGroup and enter anything you like * Click OK * in the The computer must restart prompt click OK * back in the computer name tab click on change again * Change the Member of selection to domain and enter the domain name * Click OK * enter the credentials of the users which is permitted to join the computer to the domain * in the The computer must restart prompt click OK * back in the computer name tab click OK * on the restart computer prompt click restart now. When the computer is restarted the problem should be gone. Another Way: Actually there is another way you can do this without losing your credential to the domain controller or having to copy all the files to a new user since chances are it might happen because it might see the PC as a new PC ( Maybe ) try the same steps but use the NETWORK ID option right above CHANGE under the system properties and follow the steps. This way it will noticed that the computer you are joining has the same name as one on the domain and it will ask you to if you would like to use the same name. Go ahead and say YES and it will rejoin the computer or laptop back to the domain fixing the connection to the domain and not making any changes to the computer or the users already in the computer. If you remove the computer from the domain and rejoin it you might have to recreate all the accounts and copy all the files in all the different locations of each user. This step will fix the connection issue without make any changes to the computer and this is what you want, not extra work. So what do you do when you can't even log on as the local admin? I tried the two admin accounts that I have, the standard Administrator and another. If you can't login as a domain user or local admin and can't access the box remotely then it's time to give up. If the drive(s) contain data you want to keep then I would put in a different hard drive, re-install the OS, and then try to mount the drive(s) and recover data. when ever my computer should break down for any reason i call a computer tech out to have them work on it to get me back up and running
