File Server, Web Server, DNS Server and FTP are free for download.

How to Set Custom Ringtone on Any Windows Phone

Windows Phone Custom Ringtones
Windows Phone Custom Ringtones
Hello all Windows Phone users. Actually its been few weeks since I bought my new Nokia Lumia 520. So after trying Apple iPhone, Google Nexus and Samsung smartphones I came to my old phone favorite 'Nokia'. After buying the phone I was setting it up to my personal taste and then I found out that in Windows Phone, we can't just set any mp3 file from Music player as a ringtone. To set a music file on ringtone we have to go through a very short and easy process which I am going to tell you right now.

Although, this whole documentation is available on Windows Phone website and users also get an option in your ringtone settings to see how to add new ringtones. But as I found out that windows phone's website lists too many methods and things on a single page and for me, it was a little complex and hard to understand. Because on windows phone, it gives you various options to set custom ringtones such as downloading and setting ringtones by using Windows Phone Apps or by using Windows Phone Desktop app's sync feature.
But to my personal taste, I don't like downloading separate files and apps just to add ringtones and its also a little time consuming and complex to move ringtones via Windows Phone Desktop app.

Therefore, I instead prefer a very simple method. And that method is connect your phone and move the mp3 file that you would like to set as a ringtone to your phone. And that's it. That's how easy it is to set a custom ringtone on any Windows Phone such as Nokia, HTC and Samsung. Although, don't worry if it doesn't make any sense to you. Following is the step by step how to tutorial on how to add custom ringtones to windows phones.

How to Add Custom Ringtones to Your Windows Phone:

  • Connect your phone to your computer via Data cable.
  • Open My Computer and under portable devices, select 'Windows Phone'.
  • Now in Windows Phone, you will see two folders, one would be Phone and one would be SD card or something like that. Double click on Phone.
  • Now go to Ringtones folder.
  • Now leave the ringtones folder as is and open a new explorer window or my computer and go to the folder where your mp3 or music file is located.
  • Select and drag your desired mp3 file to the Ringtones folder window which we left before.
  • Make sure that you can see your music file in the Ringtones folder now.
  • Disconnect your phone and go to Settings - Ringtones + Sounds.
  • In Ringtone menu, select the drop down menu and under custom label, you will be able to find your music file.
  • Select that file and you're done.
I hope it will make sense to you and you will be able to add and set custom mp3 files as ringtones on your windows phone. Although, I know that you can also move your music files from your SD card to ringtones folder by using Files app in Windows Phone, I have tried that and unfortunately that doesn't work out for me. Let me know if that works for you or if you need any further help with your Windows Smartphone.

Keeping Your Business Safe and Secure

Business Security
Keep Your Business Safe and Secure
Whether you run a mid-sized business or a large corporation, you need some type of security system installed to protect it. What can your company gain from installing a commercial alarm system to keep the business and employees protected from break-ins and fire?

First, one of the major benefits you get from installing a commercial security system is protection for the company and employees. You are protecting valuable assets, both material and human, by having an alarm system on in different areas of the business in the daytime as well as after the business closes.

The peace of mind you gain by having a good security system installed is invaluable and endless. Security systems with wireless detection, camera surveillance and monitoring that will stay connected to the alarm company ensure your business is as safe as possible.

Most companies put an advertising sign in place once a security system is installed in their home or business. Just using the signs and stickers alone is a great deterrent to possible intruders to your company. Even though the sticker does nothing, the simple advertisement that it might not be so easy to accomplish breaking into your business is often a put off for someone hoping for an easy score.

Insurance companies are known to give a significant discount to a business or home on their insurance premium after they have a security system installed. Statistics have shown that a security system with a video and alarm system is one of the main reasons a potential burglar will bypass the business or home and enter another one.

Surveillance cameras, fire detection devices, video tapes and electronic intrusion detection are all major parts of a good security system you might elect to have for your home or business. Each of these adds a different type of protection for your business. Carefully consider what your specific needs are and what each has to offer. When you order and install a new security system, like the ones you can find at QCC USA and other alarm companies, you want to ensure that you have the highest level of protection possible that gives you and your employee’s peace of mind during the day while working and at night if the business is closed.

When it comes to protecting your assets, it’s always better to be safe versus sorry. Protect yourself and your business with an alarm system today.

As now we do most of our financial work on computers and regularly use credit cards and debit cards so making sure that your computer is safe from hackers is one of the very important things.
Windows computers are obviously most used computers as Windows being the most popular Operating System in the world. And therefore, the Windows users are mostly vulnerable to viruses and Trojans. I am not saying that other computer operating systems are totally safe, but due to more number of users, the Windows is the mostly targeted OS.
To make your computer secure from security attacks and leak of your personal data and for other privacy safety reasons, you have option to use software programs, known as Antiviruses. There are many antivirus programs available in the software market by many vendors. Most of them are paid while some of them are also available for free.

Because I know that most of my friends do not want to spend money on software, so here I am giving you a list of some free anti-virus software with their download links. I have collected this list by researching on web, exploring other lists, such as and PC Mag. All you need to do is to pick your favorite from the list and download and install on your computer. And I also suggest you to read the Antivirus Selection Guide, if in case you wanted to get more information about Security and Antiviruses.
So, here goes the list of free best Antivirus Software Programs:

Best Free Antivirus Programs For Windows OS:

Bitdefender Free Antivirus: When is comes to analysis or research, Bitdefender is always seems to be the top best player of Antivirus Software competition. Now, it is not so sure that if they submit the results of the free version or the paid one. But the results clearly showed by Antivirus Test Labs that Bitdefender is the best Antivirus software. And the main thing is that they also offer a free version. Following are the main features of Bidefender Free Antivirus Program:
1. Real Time Shield

Whether you are using an Android phone, Windows PC or Apple Mac, AVG has the free Antivirus solution for your every device. The one other great feature of AVG Antivirus is now it comes with Privacy Fix. PrivacyFix is a very good feature that I really liked. With this, a user can have all control over his privacy. How Facebook, Google and other social networks are collecting data about you? How can you stop it? And all of that is just one click ahead. As AVG’s website says that there are over 1200 trackers that big companies have implemented over you. You can secure your online privacy with just one click ‘Fix’ and that is all. You’re done.

Although, I also used Avast Internet Security on my Windows computer and I still use avast on my desktop computer. But when we technically compare the free version of Avast with its competitors, there are not much features to favor avast. Although, it also comes with great features such as Silent firewall, safe zone for banking and automatic software updater etc. but all those features are in premium versions only and not in the free one. The main features those are included in the free version of the Avast Antivirus Software are:
Intelligent Antivirus with new DynaGen technology and

Alongside the basic real time protection, it also offer anti-ad and antispyware protection. Avira comes with a free browser toolbar which scans the webpages and browser’s functionality for inappropriate behavior and also shows the safety meter for specific websites.

Microsoft Security Essentials: As you may already know, Microsoft Security Essentials which is commonly abbreviated as MSE is an Antivirus product by Microsoft. This Antivirus software is totally free for Windows users. Microsoft offers free automatic updates for MSE alongside some other features such as Real time protection, malware protection etc.
I have tried this tool and the good thing about Microsoft Security Essentials is it is light weight and not too much messy. It is just a simple Antivirus program with a very simple to use User Interface and it will be the Best Antivirus Program for you if other guys didn’t work well for you. There are some cases when Antivirus Programs start messing up with the Windows files and sometimes they delete them and eventually corrupt the Windows OS. In such cases, MSE is your best bet.
