How To Disable Tcp/Ip Routing Automatic Process Of Metric Calculation Feature

TCP/IP is a packet which is used in identifying networks, with which we can forward the data and transmit it to destination address. It is used for connecting to the internet. The process is called as a routing which includes selecting ways/paths in network along nodes like routers, firewalls, gateways, hubs, switches which distributes network traffic. Now you must know some technical configuration of routing.

During the routing process, the path selection is based on routing metric. If your computer has multiple network cards, means there is various routes available to destination. Then paths selection chooses the best route metric which computed by routing algorithm.

Routing algorithm takes information such as network delay, bandwidth, path cost, hop count, load, communication cost, and reliability to select optimized route for your network connection.

Metric calculation is an automatic process which runs for each connection available or network interface. If metric calculation is not providing best results, then the user can disable automatic option of metric calculation and set metric value manually.

Steps to set metric calculation manually:

  • Just press start>control panel, and then select network connection options. In vista you just go to network and sharing center, and then choose manage network connection.

Use Openedfilesview To Recognize The Process Which Locks The File

Use Openedfilesview To Recognize The Process Which Locks The File

You must have noticed many times that you get an error message while deleting a file. The error message says that the file cannot be deleted due to a sharing violation as the source/ destination file might be in use.

Sometimes the error message says that the file cannot be deleted as another person/ program is being using that file and you need to close any such program and try deleting the file again. If you are able to recognize the program that has been locking the file, you can close it and try deleting the file again.

However, sometimes, even after you close the program that has been locking the file, you are unable to delete it. This means that there might be some other Windows process running which might have locked the file. In such cases, rather than restarting your system, you may use a utility known as “OpenedFilesView” to identify the programs and processes which have locked the file.

As OpenedFilesView happen to be an executable file by itself, you do not need to install it or execute any DLL. You simply need to launch it to view the entire list of open files along with all the running processes which have been locking the files.

 

OpenedFilesView also displays additional information such as the path of the open files, time of creation and modification, handle, read/write/delete access, ID of the process, path of the process etc.

For identifying the proper process which has locked a particular file that you have been trying to delete, you need to locate the particular filename by looking through the filename field. Once you find the required file, check for the corresponding process in the column “Process Name”.

In order to release the locked file, you may close the corresponding process from the OpenedFilesView interface itself. You need to right-click on the file and select the option that kills the processes for the selected file.

For easy access, the OpenedFilesView software utility can be configured as an option within the context menu of Windows Explorer. For adding OpenedFilesView to the context menu, all you need to do is, launch OpenedFilesView, go to the Options menu and check the checkbox of the option that enables Explorer Context Menu.  

If you right-click on a particular folder and select OpenedFilesView from the context menu, it will display the open files which are located inside that particular folder only. Likewise, if you right-click on a particular file and select OpenedFilesView, you will be able to view all open handles for that particular file.

OpenedFilesView is supported by most Windows Operating Systems including Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000 and 2003. This tiny utility consumes just 40KB of your system’s memory space and is definitely worth being a part of your system. Moreover, OpenedFilesView is a freeware and can be downloaded free of cost.

FileAssasinFileAndFolder Unlocker and Unlocker are some of the other alternatives to OpenedFilesView.

Detect Malicious Processes Running On Your PC

Detect Malicious Processes Running On Your PC

If you have an internet connection and stay connected to the web for long hours, it is quite natural for your PC to be prone to a number of malwares, viruses and spywares. The problems caused by such malicious codes are pretty difficult to handle and sometimes take a long time to resolve. Most of the times, you have no other option but to format your system to get rid of malwares.  

Most of these malwares get downloaded and installed on your system on their own. Many times, the antivirus on your PC is unable to detect such malwares and even if it manages to detect the threat not all antivirus applications can get rid of them. Even boot-time scanning doesn’t help at times.

Many malwares tend to block access to most popular antivirus websites such as AVG, Norton, Avira, Kaspersky etc. making it almost impossible for you to download an anti-malware or antivirus product. Above all, such malwares also disable system restore and do not allow you to boot your PC in Safe Mode.

 

Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you detect and stop any harmful processes from running/ executing on your system. Once you detect them, you need to kill such processes manually.

Follow the below mentioned steps to detect harmful processes:

  1. Press Alt+Ctrl+Tab hotkeys in order to launch the Windows Task Manager.
  2. Go to the tab “Processes” to view the list of all the processes that are running on your PC.
  3. If you happen to be familiar with the running processes, try to identify the suspicious process. You need to copy the name of the process and search it in ProcessLibrary.
  4. If you are unable to identify the malicious process, you may download a tool named “Process Viewer” and install it so that the tool can do the task of examining the processes.
  5. Once you have identified the malicious process using Process Viewer, all you need to do is, kill the process through the Task Manager.

 It is always better to identify the malicious processes and kill them right away rather than spending hours together to get rid of the dangerous viruses after they affect your PC. You can activate your task Manger if it is not enabled by following the intructions here.
