bookmark_borderRepair NET Framework In Windows 10

Run The Verification Tool

The first step is to run Microsoft’s.NET verification tool.

This is a free piece of software which basically checks for any issues that may be present with.NET.

You’re able to download it by searching for “.NET Verification tool” online, and clicking the first link (it should be a Microsoft web page).

After downloading the tool, run it.

If you don’t know which version of the.NET framework you’re running, just select.NET version 4.

It *should* be the case that the framework should verify (it only really checks to see if the correct files are on the system).

If there are any issues, it will give you an error code which you need to check online… otherwise, continue below.

Run The.NET Repair Tool

After doing step 1, you may need to “repair” any of the issues that.NET has.

To do this, you should run the.NET repair tool.

This is another tool created by Microsoft, and essentially allows you to clean up any of the problems that Windows may have with its.NET installation.

Like the verification tool above, you can find it by clicking onto your favourite search engine and looking for “.NET repair tool”.

Click on the first Microsoft link – it should present a page with a big orange button.

Once you’ve clicked the button, download the application to your system and run it.

Follow the steps on screen and restart your PC once completed.

Upgrade.NET

If the above didn’t work, you may want to try updating the framework.

This basically overrides any of the files that may be problematic anyway, allowing you to clean up any errors it may have.

To do this, you will need to do the following:

  • Search online for “.NET latest download”
  • You should be presented with a Microsoft webpage
  • This page will have two options – “.NET Core” & “.NET Framework”
  • Click on “Download.NET Framework Runtime” under the.NET Framework option
  • Save the file to your PC
  • Open it and run it
  • It will either tell you if you have the latest version, or prompt you to proceed
  • If you can proceed, follow the steps and restart your system

Reinstall.NET In “Windows Features”

Lastly, you may be able to remove the feature from Windows Features.

To do this, you need to follow these steps:

  • Press “Windows” + “S” keys on your keyboard
  • Type “Programs and Features”
  • Select the first option (in Windows 10, there may be an option for “Turn Windows features on or off” – which you should click)
  • Click onto “Turn Windows features on or off” from the left menu
  • From the list, identify “.NET 4.7”
  • Uncheck the box
  • Click “OK”
  • Restart your system
  • Open the applet again, and this time check the box
  • Windows should perform some installation processes
  • Once complete, restart your system again
  • Test to see if it worked

If you’re still experiencing issues after following the above, you will need to ensure that any of the applications your system is running are operating correctly. This can typically be achieved by re-installing them.

If you’re out of your depth and are in need of specific support, there are a number of communities online who may be able to help – Reddit, SuperUser and Microsoft Answers being 3 of the most popular. On top of that, you have paid support, which can be found either through Google, locally or on Fiverr.

bookmark_borderBlock Chain Technology

The technology was conceived and devised primarily for crypto currencies, digital currencies like the Bit-coin. In contemporary times, bit-coin is referred to as the digital gold and the total value of this currency is close to about 9 billion US dollars. Block chain technology can make other type of digital values. The functioning of the technology is encapsulated and therefore the user can use it without having to know it in detail. However, it is always recommended to have a basic notion about the technology in context before using it as this adequately simplifies the use.

The functioning of the technology is pretty much encapsulated implying that there is no need to know about the working of the block chain technology in detail, a fundamental idea about the working of the technology is more than sufficient for individuals using it. In simpler terms, this technology can be defined as a digital ledger of commercial transactions which is incorruptible and can be programmed to record not just the financial transactions but anything which has value associated with it.

Information stored as part of the technology in context is quite similar to the same in a spread sheet or any distributed database. Just as a spread sheet containing values can be regularly updated, the block chain too can be updated from time to time. The records stored using the block chain technology are not kept in a private location, instead, such data source are kept in public domain so that they can be verified on a timely basis. Using such a technology, the information is not held by any centralized servers instead they are stored in several database servers across millions of workstations, computers that are connected to the internet. It is because of this that the block chain data cannot be hacked or corrupted.

Since in this technology the blocks of information can be assessed across more than one point in the network therefore it cannot be controlled by a single entity. Since there are multiple copies of block chain information available across networks therefore such technologies do not have a single point of failure. Other facets of this technology are that it is transparent, incorruptible, very much decentralized because the information related to the technology in context is stored in several host machines across the network and all these factors contribute to making the block chain network highly secure.

bookmark_borderBenefits of Hybrid Cloud

The first and probably the most important benefit of the hybrid cloud is the price. This solution is highly cost effective and can help save customer thousands in the long run. Rather than paying high prices for various pieces for equipment, you get all your processing power and storage in one place making use of a variety of platforms, which are safe and secure, putting your mind at complete ease.

Another benefit which cannot be ignored is that the hybrid cloud improves data recovery after a disaster. Almost every single company these days rely on the computer to perform daily functions. Your customer information, order history, current orders, deliveries and invoicing is all stored on the computer. In the event of a computer crash, you could lose everything, which leaves you unable to contact clients, unable to invoice for current projects and unsure which orders have been fulfilled and which are still to be dispatched. As you can imagine, companies have lost customers along with thousands of potential income due to their computers crashing and losing everything.

With the hybrid cloud all your data is stored off site and is easily accessible from anywhere at any time. You simply log into the system to access your data. Even if you prefer storing on your office computer and backing up every hour or two, the worst thing you will lose in the event of a disaster is a couple of hours work, which can easily be made back.

Further you will find that the hybrid cloud is very flexible and can be customized to meet your unique company data needs and requirements. While you may only need to start with a small amount of compute and storage space, as your business grows, you will need more space. The cloud is completely flexible, so as you grow you can purchase more processing power. This also helps you budget accordingly and reduces the risk of you running out of money or space at any time.

With the hybrid cloud, because of the flexibility you can start small at a price you can afford and as you expand and grow you can increase your process and storage space, still staying within the price you can afford.

In addition to this, you will find that the hybrid cloud is very secure. This is one major concern many business owners have. When you have a large team all accessing data, you need to ensure that they can only access the data they are allowed to. You don’t want your sales representatives accessing your bank statements and financial information. Everyone gets their own log in information and you can set security protocols to ensure that anyone accessing information has a right to do so.

The final thing you need to know about this product is that it is convenient, it can save you money in the long run and it’s affordable. Choose a provider wisely, a company with years of knowledge and experience in the industry combined with an outstanding reputation.

bookmark_borderRFID And Pharmaceuticals

RFID works with just three things which are tags, readers and easy to use software. Items can be tagged individually or by the crate, barrel or box full, and readers can be set up at any point along the manufacture process and beyond. Everything can be easily tracked via the software and a laptop or smartphone.

Pharmaceuticals are made from many different ingredients that are expertly blended together to make a certain pill or liquid. These pills are created in special laboratories and then shipped to various drug stores, doctor’s offices and hospitals around the country and, in some cases, the world.

What happens with RFID is that compounds are tagged before they head to the lab. No, granules cannot be tagged, but batches of it can be, so once it gets to the lab, the head technician knows exactly which batch of each product they are using in which pills. Tags can be read with handheld devices or as they travel through static readers in a warehouse or holding room. As each batch of a specific pharmaceutical is finished, that too gets a special tag, specifying when it was made, by whom it was made, what temperature it needs to be stored at, where it is headed and many other particulars which can all be brought up on that laptop whenever needed.

These tags stay with the product until such times as they get to their final destination, and can be read however many times in transit as needed, this lessens the threat of theft and loss, and can easily be tracked if it does happen to go missing at any point. Because many drugs are dangerous if taken unnecessarily or make for great money on the black market, security is of the utmost importance when these drugs are being shipped from point A to point B.

bookmark_borderProtecting Digital Footprint

Even if you have never been on-line, don’t have email or use social media, you still have a Digital Footprint. Yes, the more you are on-line the greater your exposure to some sort of identity theft.

Here is something to think about. Is it safer to go to a store and use your credit/debit card in person, or is it safer to shop on-line with your credit/debit card? The answer and explanation will be at the end of this article.

So how do we protect ourselves while on-line?

  • Have a different password for each on-line account you have
  • Use a non-dictionary password, using caps, numbers, symbols at least 12 characters
  • Use a password manager to keep track of all your passwords
  • Be careful of what you put on social media
  • Keep all your devices OS up to date (do the updates)
  • Use Internet Security software for you PC’s
  • Use security software for your phones and tablets

When you are banking or investing on-line it would be wise to use what is called “Two factor Authorization”. This means that after you put in your User Name and Password, you will get a text with an authorization number that you must input to gain access.

Soon finger prints, eye scans or other biometrics will be used as a login. These are getting better and more reliable, expect to see them soon in wide scale use.

Most infections or hacks come in through email or infected apps that are downloaded. Be very careful when clicking an embedded link in an email. If possible don’t do this, instead go to that web site directly. For example, you may get an email from your bank that says your statements are ready, do not click the link, instead go to the bank site directly from your browser.

Now the answer from above. Generally, it’s safer to shop on-line. The reason, when you put in your credit card numbers they are encrypted all the way to the credit card clearing center. When you use your card at a store you hand it to a store employee, in some cases you lose sight of that card. On-line the only human hands that your card touches are yours.
