How to fix if your computer time changes automatically

Some time when we start our computer its system time changes automatically. Mostly all people think that this is the problem related to that small battery which runs this clock. But it is not true in all cases.

Just recently I have similar problem with my computer. My computer starts with normal time but after few minutes its time get changed automatically (probably after connected to Internet) !! This was really irritating problem because I have to correct my time each time I restart my computer. After changing time it works okay till I restart it again.

I have searched about this thing many time and finally got a helpful and working tip from my friend.
This problem can arise due to incorrect time zone selection. Yes when I checked my time zone it was incorrect. I immediately set it to the correct one and since then its working fine.  So if your clock is not working properly than you can check this thing. If this is not set correctly the time can change when you connect your computer to internet. So you can correct it from date and time setting by right clicking clock from bottom right part.

You can also disable Internet synchronize time from the date and time settings which will not change your time even you having wrong time zone selected.

This is very basic thing but still can be really irritating sometimes. So just keep above two things in mind as a solution if you ever face something like this. Have fun.

Set videos as your desktop background

This is surely not new. But just few days back one of my friends was asking me about this so I thought I should post it here too.

I hope you have heard about DreamScene. If not than you should read this.

It is like addon from Microsoft using which you can set videos as wallpaper. So you can set your video songs or any other videos as your desktop background. So there is no need of those boring static wallpapers.

How to get it?

There may be direct download link available on the internet. But as I said in my previous post any unknown download source can be risky. So better you follow the proper and safe way.

  •          Open windows update from the Control Panel.
  •          Now check for Windows DreamScene in View Available Extras list.
  •          If there is no such thing than you should check for new updates.
  •      After updates, you will able to see Windows DreamScene in list. Just install that update and all done.

How to set videos as wallpaper?

Now we already completed the download section. Now time to set video as desktop background. It is quite easy.

For setting wallpaper as our desktop background, we used to right click on image and click on ‘set as desktop background’. As we completed download process now we can set videos as background just by right clicking on video file and selecting ‘set as desktop background’ like we do with images.

But remember Dreamscene supports only WMV and MPG video formats. So you need to convert your videos before in these formats before setting them as your background.

Note:- Surely setting videos as your desktop background instead of simple wallpapers can slow down your computer(not much). So make sure that you having more RAM in your system.

You can ask me if you have any queries on this. Bye.

How risky it can be? Installing Pirated Software!

Many people used to install pirated software in their computer system to save some money. I know many people think that it is not that necessary to spend money for some software.  But do they really understand the risk in installing pirated software!!!  It is not okay legally but there are many other risks involved too which people should know.

I usually don’t used to install such software on my system. But recently I got cd of needed software from my friend. It wasn't genuine but as it was urgent I decided to install it. I have Anti-Logger software in my system. When I finished the installation of that software I tried to open it. Immediately my Anti-Logger show me a pop up window that Anti-Logger software detected and that was that pirated software!! I immediately uninstall that software without using it even it was urgent.

About Anti-Logger: For those who don’t know about it. It is a protection like Anti-Virus which provides the protection against the key-stroke recorder software. This key-stroke recorder software keeps the record of pressed keys of your keyboard and sends it its maker.

Do you know what it means?? Means someone can get your passwords and other important details from such software via those pirated software. Just think that what will happen if your personal and important bank details data reach to some hacker!! It is scary.

Not only this, hackers can send you any harmful things with such pirated software. So please understand the risk behind it. I know pirated software gives full featured software in very less cost. But some of that software may contain such harmful data which is surely not healthy for your system.

So be safe and have fun.
