  1. I'd turn off Remote Access from the Control Panel. Most people don't know this and hackers most likely prey on people like this. Basically it gives anyone in your network access to your desktop (mouse and keyboard too) from a different computer. It's supposed to be for tech support to remotely fix your computer but it's been taken advantage of in recent years.
  2. As long as it meets the minimum system requirements of Windows 10, your laptop can run it. It has nothing to do with the license. Even if you don't have the money to fork out money for the license key of Windows 10, you can still install it. The only drawback is that you can't change the background picture and that there's a watermark on the bottom right reminding you to activate the license key. I know people who to this day hasn't activated their copy of Windows 10 and it still runs fine.
  3. I believe Chrome stopped giving updates to Windows XP a few years back because it can't keep up with the minimum system requirements the newer updates require. So I guess this is because the website you are viewing uses code that only the newer updates of Chrome supports. That or it is just a hardware problem. It could be that your internal graphics is too outdated to view the graphics of that website. Invest in a newer PC Corzhens if the budget allows. Even the cheapest available PC right now can support those websites. A desktop XP PC just isn't usable in 2019.
  4. Imagine SD as a sheet of normal size paper and HD is a sheet of paper that's bigger than SD. By trying to convert your SD videos to HD, what you're trying to do is stretching the paper to match the size of the HD video. Does that make sense? So in turn, this will make your output video very blurry and pixelated. That's the gist of it. You can convert a HD video to SD without quality loss because it's just shrinking pixels down to a lower resolution. But you can't do the same the other way around.
  5. It's all about how much time you want to allot on this. Most web hosting sites are trustworthy enough to give out your credit card information. If you're really paranoid, get a prepaid card that you load money into whenever you want to make a purchase. But for me, I'd go with manual payment 1 day before the deadline. I'm not that rich where I can just pay a bill out at the first day of the month like that.
  6. But unlike Vine where the content creators themselves are posting their Vines to Youtube, Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook, Tik Tok users aren't. And maybe that's the problem why we aren't seeing "Tik Tok stars" the same way Viners did back when it was alive.
  7. Keywords change rankings every day. It wouldn't be farfetched to have your tags now be popular and in the future it's going to be lower resulting in lower rankings. Just continue to use correct keywords and maybe throw in trending topics that are related to your work in and see if raises your rankings a bit.
  8. I doubt it. Tik Tok is more like musically than Vine and musically didn't produce "influencers" per se like Vine did. It's because in Vine and musically, it's just them doing skits over music/voice overs. There's no "popularity contest" in Tik Tok I believe like there was in Vine and that brought people like Jake and Logan Paul to be influencers.
  9. I have a full time 9-6 job. I've never considered working online full time since it's not stable. I think a lot of people are in the same boat. Imagine not finding a job despite weeks of searching online and your bills are due next week. That's going to be hard to survive. At least with a full time job, you'll be assured your salary as long as you're working.
  10. I've never been a big fan of reggae. It's just to repetitive for me. And people are linking it to recreational marijuana use for comedic effect. And maybe that's why I've never delved into that particular music genre.
  11. What I'm lacking when I'm working online is the fact that I'm not interacting with anyone. We weren't built to be loners in an island. Humans are social beings. Chatting with someone online isn't the same with talking to a real person. I guess the only perk of working online then is the convenience. But is that worth being alone?
  12. Having a degree is a huge advantage in a third world country. There are just more opportunities in the first world countries and in those countries, having a degree isn't all that important. But that is not to say that people who can't afford an education can't get a decent job. I'm just saying it's harder in some places than others and having a degree won't hurt.
  13. Maybe it depends on the person then? I enjoy my own company more than with other people. I assume you're in the same boat.
  14. I would choose Mobile Legends over Dota. One does not have to go to a computer shop to play the game anymore. It's much more convenient to play on mobile. You can still play with your friends online. I guess that's the primary attraction of Mobile Legends.
  15. PC games for sure. Though PS4 exclusives like Spider-Man PS4 and Spyro is tempting me to say console, I've invested too much into my desktop rig to justify buying a console for gaming.
  16. I think the main difference between these anti virus programs is in the level of security they provide. Not all anti virus programs are created equal. Though yes some are just selling it for profit, there are programs out there that do genuinely allow you to customize your experience. The common ones install AdBlock and you have to disable the Anti virus program COMPLETELY which is annoying. No way to turn off ad block without disabling anti virus.
  17. CPU - AMD Ryzen 3 2200G or Ryzen 5 2400G (If it's still in your budget) GPU - 4 gb Zotac GTX 1050 Ti Dual Fan OC Motherboard - Asrock AB350M Pro 4 RAM - 2 x 4 GB G Skill Ripjaws X (Any dual channel ram brand you can find totalling 8 GB) Storage - 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Blue PSU - Raidmax 500x RX-500XT Case - Tecware F3 30-40k budget. Mileage will vary on parts availability depending on where you purchase it. There's a Newegg Philippines now if you're too lazy to buy from local retailers. I will PM you the site where I bought my parts. They'll assemble al
  18. I beg to disagree. There are branded components which are of good quality and poor quality. The unbranded ones are still branded, just by unknown brands from China. I've had experience with poor quality and unbranded parts before and they've all failed me within 2 years. That's why I invest into buying quality parts. A desktop computer which is the cheapest a person can build but can only do basic word documents and web browsing is worth $200 (Excluding monitor, keyboard and mouse). If you go unbranded, you can probably get it with monitor, keyboard and mouse.
  19. A forum owner I conversed with has a Youtube Channel of just 6k subscribers with 500 average views per video, 3 videos a week and he's earning close to $5-7 a day. It's not bad if it's just a way to help pay the bills. That was before the 10k subs and 40000 watch time requirement for new creators FYI. I don't think a person can live decently on Youtube alone unless they have like 300k subs. I mean even the top Youtubers have to sell merch or get help through donations to survive.
  20. How much is your budget? I can quote you an estimate on the parts I recommend in PHP and also a reputable seller here locally. I agree with NerdIndeed. I use a Ryzen 7 system myself and so far it's still running buttery smooth 8 months in. I do some occasional gaming and CAD software work (same load as video editing) and 3D modelling software. Main reason is for the cores (which is vital in video editing). Intel only offers 4-6 cores for their CPUs, even the i7 high end consumer grade CPUs. You'd have to spend double the price if you want to match Ryzen 7's 16 cores.
  21. I have a LinkedIn account too and what's hard at first is building your network. For someone like me that doesn't have that many friends in the same field, sometimes random strangers just add me and I'll accept. I do like that they'll keep you updated on possible jobs available and if you pay for the Pro model, you'll get to see who searched for you and the times you've appeared on an employers' search list as well.
  22. I like that you can advertise on Facebook easily. You pay per CPM. Though the numbers I got when I checked my ad progress was nice, I think you have to be patient. The effects of the ads aren't felt immediately but you do get traffic to your site legit.
  23. I like Facebook since I can use it like Flipboard/Feedly. I like to be in the know when it comes to memes and trending stuff from around the world. Something I can't set up my Flipboard or Feedly to do. I unfollowed most of my friends so that only the posts from pages I like show up on my newsfeed. I'm anti social in a social media site lol.
  24. It is possible you have a defective RAM module as most of the codes insist. Try to insert the RAM sticks one by one and see if it works. If you have a spare computer that's compatible with your hardware, try to plug it in there too to speed up the process of checking. If all components are working there, then it means your motherboard is the problem.
  25. I prefer offline games since I don't have any friends that do game. Single player games are most of what I play. The ones that do have multiplayer compatibility, I try out from time to time. But the people I get matched with sucks. It's a non English speaking person here in Asia most of the time and I can't communicate with them. Imagine playing GTA Online with a Chinese person who keeps screwing up the mission. It's annoying.
