Google admits to Identity theft

Google recently gave another shock to the world. But this time the reason for the shock is something different. The Internet search engine giant, Google has recently admitted that it was spying on the computer passwords and emails across Britain.

“The Sunday Telegraph” has reported that the California based company was downloading personal data from wireless networks for its Street View project. In some of the cases complete email addresses with the passwords and along with the URLs were captured. However, the search engine giant has apologized for the action.

Alan Eustace, Google’s Vice-President of engineering and research has said- “We want to delete this data as soon as possible, and I would like to apologize again for the fact that we collected it in the first place.”

The Information Commissioner’s Office, the privacy watchdog has said that it will look into the matter. Google started to collect the pictures for its Street View project in 2008 with a panoramic camera mounted on a vehicle.

Google also confessed that the vehicles also gathered information related to the local wireless networks along with the devices that connects computer to the telecommunications network via radio waves. However, it is assumed that the wireless networks that were protected with a password were not affected by this. Google also confirmed that the information and the data it has gathered includes e-mails that were being sent by individuals at that time, the WebPages they were visiting along with the information like passwords.

The director of Privacy International, Simon Davies said- “It’s absolutely scandalous that this situation has developed and so many people have had their communications intercepted.

“The company must launch a full inquiry and produce a public report on exactly what happened, as well as release the audit it has already undertaken. There are a lot of questions that need to be answered about how and why it did this.”

 

Privacy International has already launched a complaint against Google earlier this year about the Google’s Street View project.

What is System Restore?

System Restore and Its Features

One day, you are minding your own business, doing some work online or just listening to some music, when you are suddenly faced with cricket-noise-inducing silence and a blank screen. Maybe you’re watching a video that you waited patiently to download and a few minutes into the opening credits the movie pauses, along with your whole screen. Those are just some of the problems that will require you to use the System Restore in your Windows operating system.

What System Restore Can Do For You

System Restore will assist you in restoring the computer system to an earlier point when it was working at its optimum efficiency. This is the system’s version of an undo that will not affect your personal files like emails, documents or photos.

Certain installations of some programs and drivers might cause some unexpected errors or changes in your computer which will cause Windows to behave in an unpredictable way. Uninstalling the program often corrects the driver problem but a System Restore will undoubtedly help make the process of restoring the computer faster. It will return the status of your computer to an earlier date when it was working properly.

System Restore has a feature called system protection so you can regularly create and you can even save restore points on your computer which you can choose from. These certain restore points have information about registry settings and other system information that Windows will use. You can create restore points manually apart from the computer’s own saved restore points. You can find information about creating restore points on the option Create.

You can use the system image backups that were stored within the computer’s hard drive for your System Restore which are similar to the restore points that were actually made by system protection procedures. System image backups may contain both your system files and personal data, but your files will not be affected by System Restore. If you need to know more about system images you can find out on ‘What is a system image?’

If you plan on backing up files, System Restore is not what you need. It will not aid in recovering personal files that have been deleted or damaged. You are responsible for backing up your personal files and important data using a backup program. If you need more information regarding the necessary backing up important personal files, look at the Back up your files option.

Simple Ways to Enable System Restore

You can access System restore if you click the Start button. Using the search box, type in System Restore, after which you will see the results where you can click System Restore. You might be prompted for an administrator password and in this case you should type it to provide confirmation. You can see more information about system protection on ‘What is system protection?’

This information will help you in knowing what to do in case you come across problems during installation or downloading of foreign files. By being informed, you can make the process of maintaining your computer at its optimum level of performance.
