This article aims to provide you with some common logic, tips, and tricks of what should you do and where should you pay attention in order not to provide wrong people with your crucial information and data. we hope that you will find reading informative and helpful.

  1. Keep Windows updated.

    Microsoft is working hard on their Windows defender and firewall to provide protection to its users and fixing any introduced security leaks which are found in Windows itself. By updating and keeping Windows updated you make sure that every security leak that is found is patched and removed from Windows and that you have the latest database of known malware inside the firewall and defender.
    This common practice, however, should not be limited to Windows only, you should update every application you are using for the same reasons.

  2. Use antivirus, anti-malware, and firewall

    These applications exist for a reason and that reason is to protect your data. Dedicated applications specifically made for purposes of defending your data are better than any kind of I am careful mentality since sometimes is enough to just visit a website or just click on some link and you are compromised. You can use Windows Defender and firewall if you wish, they are already in Windows but if you are serious about your data and like to surf the internet some better protection is worth the investment.

  3. Get a dedicated password manager

    Your password is bad, if you use the same password everywhere then it is even worse. Computers have come a long way in the last 50 years and so have cyber attack applications which make your commonsense passwords extremely vulnerable and all of your accounts open to cyber attacks. Dedicated password managers that can hash passwords and automate them are your safest bet that your passwords will not be compromised, get one, and get it today.

  4. Do not click on anything inside emails

    Cyber attacks come in vast variety and one of them is sending you emails informing you that for example your Paypal or anything else has been hacked and that you must click this link to reset your password. These you do not click, no matter how convincing they sound or how good they look, if you need to update your information on a specific service or website, you delete email, open browser and go to that service and change stuff. The same goes with different offers, discounts, women seeking you, men seeking you, prince sending you 1 billion in gold. Only click on links in emails from a trusted and verified source.

  5. Do not click on pop-ups

    Similar to clicking on links in emails you should not click on pop-ups, the same rules, same stuff apply as with emails.

  6. Be careful what you are downloading

    Be careful from where you download your software and be careful what are you downloading and stop using pirated software, any kind of malicious applications, keyloggers, viruses, etc could be hidden in these downloads, and by downloading them you are opening doors to your private information. Only use legal software from trusted sources.

  7. Never leave your phone or computer unattended

    You can never tell who can implement malicious software or get some crucial information from unattended devices, lock them all time and take them with you.

There you go, 7 common tips and tricks for the basic security of your computer. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you again on our site.

Thus, it is why it is widely used when accessing a server-based in Linux. Its latest version is the SMB2 which follows after SMB1. The SMB2 contains more fixes to vulnerabilities that were found in SMB1. The predecessor was vulnerable since it served as a gateway to various modern ransomware which is why Microsoft disabled it by default starting with Windows 10 v1709. When you try to share a file, you will get the following error message:
“Microsoft Windows Network: You can’t connect to the file share because it is not secure. This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack. Your system requires SMB2 or higher.”
In this post, you will be guided on how to check if the SMB2.0 version can be installed on your Windows 10 computer. To get started, follow the steps below. Step 1: Tap the Win + X keys to open the Device Manager. Step 2: After that, click on the Windows PowerShell (Admin) option. Step 3: In the Windows PowerShell window, type the following command and hit Enter:
Get-SmbServerConfiguration | Select EnableSMB2Protocol
Note: After entering the command, you will see the following content on your screen which means that your Windows 10 computer is now capable of running the SMB2 protocol Now all that’s left for you to do is to enable the SMB 2 protocol on your Windows computer by enabling the SMB 1 protocol first and then upgrading it to SMB 2 afterward. Refer to the steps below for more details. Step 1: Tap the Win + I keys to open the Settings app. Step 2: Then type in “control panel” in the search area and click on Control Panel from the search results. Step 3: After opening Control Panel, click on Programs. From there, select the “Turn Windows features on or off” option under the larger menu of Programs and Features.

Step 5: Now let it install all the required files and then restart your computer to apply the changes made successfully. After your computer has restarted, the SMB 2 protocol should now be supported on your Windows 10 computer.

How to Fix Windows 10 Error 0xc00000fd

Error Code 0xc00000fd - What is it?

In its most basic essence, Error Code 0xc00000fd appears when a program can not be initiated. It can occur when a file or program is corrupted, incompatible with the current version of the operating system, or out of date.

This error code occurs primarily in Windows but is also present in previous editions of the operating system. The symptoms of this error and the resolution methods for each of these systems are essentially resolved in the same way.

Common symptoms include:

  • Failure of programs to open properly, even if they were able to be opened in the past
  • The appearance of an error message stating that the application couldn’t be started correctly

There are several different things that Windows 10 users can do to try to fix the appearance of Error Code 0xc00000fd on their machine. Some of these methods are fairly simple for the average user, while others may require advanced knowledge and comfort with diving into the deeper tools and settings of the Windows operating system. If you have difficulty in implementing the methods below, contact a qualified Windows repair technician to assist you in the resolution of the error code.

Solution

Restoro box imageError Causes

Error Code 0xc00000fd can arise when program files are not recognized properly by the operating system, when the operating system is no longer compatible with the program being run, when files are missing or corrupted, or when the program has been changed in a substantial way. Each of these causes requires a different method of resolution.

Further Information and Manual Repair

Several methods can be used to attempt to resolve Error Code 0xc00000fd on your computer. Basic users can use some of these methods, while others require familiarity with advanced tools and options in Windows. If you have trouble implementing the steps below, contact a qualified professional to assist you. Here are the top ways to deal with Error Code 0xc00000fd on your machine:

Method One:  Check for Updates using the Windows Update Tool

In some cases, compatibility issues can be resolved through updates and patches available directly from Microsoft via the Windows Update tool. This is most likely the case if you have not kept up with regular updates on your machine over time. In your settings, open up the Windows Update tool and run a scan to see if there are any required updates available for your programs or for the operating system itself. If there are updates, install them, then reboot your computer to make sure that all updates are able to be fully applied to your operating system. Attempt to open the program that caused the error after you are finished to see if this method addressed the problem fully or if an additional method needs to be used.

Method Two:  Roll Back to an Earlier Version of the Updates

Sometimes, an update can cause a compatibility issue. If you have previously been able to open the program in question without any problems, but have recently installed an update on your computer, that update may have been the source of the problem. If this is the case, roll your system back to an earlier stage of updates to see if that fixes the problem. If so, you may need to wait to reinstall the updates until Microsoft corrects the issue.

Method Three:  Run Scans on Your Registry, Antivirus Software, Drivers, and Update Troubleshooters

If there truly is a corrupted or missing file within the program that you are trying to run, you can open up several tools to scan for the file that may be causing the trouble and attempt to fix it. Run the following tools to try to fix the problems:
  • Windows Registry Repair Tool (this particular tool may take some time to complete)
  • Windows Update Troubleshooting Wizard
  • Windows Drivers Updates
  • Antivirus software or Microsoft Security Essentials
After running each of these tools, restart your computer to allow any necessary changes to be applied to your system. If the above methods do not fix error Code 0xc00000fd on your particular device or if you do not have the confidence and knowledge to implement these steps on your own, get in touch with a Windows repair professional who can help you to resolve the problem.

Method 4: Use An Automated Tool

If you wish to always have at your disposal a utility tool to fix these Windows 10 and other related issues when they do arise, download and install a powerful automated tool.
