There are many software available to download the youtube videos but all of them are not reliable (Read: may not download youtube videos)

Use Internet Download Manager (IDM) to download videos from youtube. IDM is a download manager. Also IDM is the fastest download manager I have ever seen.

This is how the IDM will look like..now download the IDM from internetdownloadmanager.com and install it…then goto youtube and download the videos that you like

Do you want to increase the THUMP (BASS) of your SE Phone MORE THAN THE Sony Ericsson’s MegaBass then download this ZAPF files and store it on your phone using the XS++ (already posted abt the usage in this blog !)

This applies to Sony Ericsson W610, K550@W610, W660…and many other ZAPF Phones.
What is the Effect..After I have installed it ?
1. Bass will be increased more than your Walkman’s Mega Bass (Really very high).

The downloadable file may contain these 3 files I think
1. Xaero W880 Mixed – Produce very high sound than what u would expect
2. W880 – Produce slightly high sound than the factory setting
3. If the zip file contains Xaero_ma_loud file..please dont use this folder as it does not contain all the sound drivers.

Use any of the first two…I suggest you to use the Xaero W880 mixed as it tried and tested.

Download Sound drivers..click here

This software can record calls without any time limitation.
Note: There is an option available in the settings
to record calls automatically…also increase the recording time there.

Download the call recorder here:

Formatting your PC everytime to increase its speed is not always a good option. Below are few easy steps to ensure your PC runs clean without fuss.

I think you use windows XP and below things are compatible to most of the Windows products.

1. Dont compress drives. If you compress drives it will provide you some extra space but will reduce performance. But sometimes you may have smaller HDD space and want to increase the space means you can try this:

a. Right click a drive or folder and select properties and select the compress drive (or folder) to save disk space

2. Use disk defragmenter atleast once in a week.

Start -> All programs -> System tools -> Disk defragmenter

You can also use custom after market defragmenter such as the one in this site: iobit.com

3. Use error-check option

My Computer -> Right click a drive -> properties -> tools -> select error check.

Error-check will check for data that reside in a “faulty” area of the HDD and relocate it to a safe place. “faulty” area are scratches (& others) in the HDD and are often caused by the read/write head of the HDD.

4. Run Anti-virus once a week & update it regularly

I suggest you to install a professional Version of a Anti-virus program such as the Avast Professional or kaspersky.

Note: Dont install more than one Anti-Virus in a PC

5. Install Anti-spyware application.

Are you using Credit cards for online purchasing ? then an Anti-spyware application is a very must. Today’s spywares not just steal passwords they are way ahead of your imagination.

Install Spybot S&D from safer-networking.org and spyware terminator or Windows Defender.

Note: You can install more than one Anti-spyware in a PC. Installing alone is not enough you should immunize ur PC thru the anti-spywares.

6. Install Autorun eater

Autorun eater is a best known application for removing the pendrive based (autorun.inf based) viruses. You can get this software from majorgeeks.com or visit the official site:

http://oldmcdonald.wordpress.com/

This software can remove newfolder.exe, leanzq.exe, diskprotect.exe and similar threats.

7. McAfee SiteAdvisor:

This software is best dealing with the best and worst websites. It will warn you by showing different colours in the web browser.Green for good sites and red for dangerous sites

siteadvisor.com

8. Web security guard and disk protect:

Another good internet related intimator is the web security guard. You can download this from spywareterminator.com (not spywareterminater). Disk protect is to protect files by virus or accidental deletions/alterations.

Find your internet connection speed

You dont need to download any special software or site to check your internet connection speed.

1. Open Task manager (Right click task bar and select task manager)

2. Select Networking tab

3. You can see the internet speed at the network utilization area. The speed is displayed in percentage.

That’s it !!!

Note: This applies to all (downloading / uploading / browsing..)

Sometimes your XP doesnt support custom themes (files with .msstyles extension or .theme extension)

One fo the solution is to use uxthemepatcher fileĀ  but it is not working in most of the xp. for example my pc is a XP with SP3 and the patcher file does not work.

In this case you can do the below things:

1. Download vistamizer software from softpedia.com

2. Now your computer will turn into vista like…

3. Now you can install custom themes that you have downloaded.

If you need custom themes you can download here:

customize.org

Want to display the file extensions like the one in the below pic, then follow the instructions:

Open My computer or any window.

My Computer -> Tools -> Folder options ->View -> Uncheck the HideĀ  extensions for known file types.
