2 Technology Tips

Let's start this Monday with a couple of useful technology tips.

Nuisance Popups For DL Apps

Have you ever had a website open and immediately a popup browser window pops open for a software download that you don't want?

Sometimes, when you stumble onto something like this, you immediately click cancel, but it doesn't go away. It just keeps coming at you and it won't go away no matter what you do.

The best thing to do is click Alt / F4 immediately. That should close the browser. If it doesn't, try closing it though Task Manager: click Alt / Ctrl / Del to open the Task Manager then click applications. Highlight the application you want to end (to close) and click end task. That should take care of it.

Investigate Websites

If you're wary, for whatever reason, of entering a new website, check out the validity of the website first by visiting URL Void and enter the URL into the box at the top. The app will scan the website for any potential problems.

Takeaway Truth

Technology is wonderful, but it can also be a nuisance if one is not careful.
