      Speakeasy Data Test
(BEST TEST TO SEE THROUGH PUT VARIES)

       Still looking for better tests ...

1 Byte is 8 bits;
KB, KBYTES; KB (kilobyte) is 1,024 bytes;

Mbits is one million bits per second;
kbits is 1000 bits per second.

What Is Kbps?

Kbps, Mbps, Gbps


The distance to the test server affects the test, and what people are doing (on your leg of the LAN) at the exact moment of the test matters

Want to maintain your computer yourself?   
Back to top
Here is the least you should do Each Month,

alternatively, you can hire some one like me to help you
with this as there is much more than can be

done to speed and protect your computer from not working
and your data from being destroyed.
 

In the Administrator account do these things:

Do it in this ORDER:

1) Update Windows, click start, all programs, Microsoft update,
or in run box type: %SystemRoot%\system32\wupdmgr.exe

2) Run CCleaner I prefer to configure so that it does not delete my history, etc.

3) How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP

How to run Chkdsk from My Computer or from Windows Explorer

  1. Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
  2. Click Properties, and then click Tools.
  3. Under Error-checking, click Check Now

    Note The Check disk options dialog box appears.
  4. Use one of the following procedures:
    • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start.
    • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start.
    • MOST OF THE TIME DO NOT CHECK FOR BAD SECTORS AS THIS TAKES A LONG TIME
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you receive the following message:
  1. The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?
    Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

4) Run Auslogics Disk Defrag, I prefer to configure so that moving system files to the front, etc.

5) Run Full Virus Scan, with updated virus scanner, with AVG Anti-Virus Free, or yours.


6) finally, Update and run SpyBot to Check and Protect from having Spyware

If you want to check for Malware:

7) Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

8) Run MRT.exe, to run this tool, click start, type into the run box, "mrt.exe" no quotes.
when you update date, MS Windows it auto installs Malicious Software Removal Tool very good,
even though from Microsoft updated monthly. run that if the first four things do not work.

         (Link to click on): How to Make Your Computer Faster

 If you only do two things to maintain your computer,
 then do these two things below:  

* 1) CCleaner   Registry cleaning;

Be Careful with Registry Tools, if you careful not a problem
Please check the settings before using the first time.

How to run Chkdsk from My Computer or from Windows Explorer

Back to top

* 2) Auslogics Disk Defrag free version    OK for encryption
I still recommend this above for most computer users.
Auslogics works fine on hard drives that have 60 percent free space.

DO NOT USE Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro, very bad program.

----------------------------------------
I am done testing defragmenters. Use Auslogics free version
if you can; else use Perfect Disk Pro.

PerfectDisk Pro is best if Auslogics' get stuck moving files
when your hard disk in mostly full.

PerfectDisk Pro Not free but worth the $29 dollars.
easy to use FREE 30 day trial that is fully functional.

Use Smart placement on the main drive on all drives, but make sure
your backup files are not seen as boot files; so run PerfectDisk Pro
before you restart the computer and the prefect is updated.

The first time this program organizes your drive it take a long time;
and you should only use it with the same setting in the future.

This new program does much more than just defragment drives.
----------------------------------------

Warning: Please read the warnings below first before using.

Do Not use the Boot Time Defragment until they fix it.


If you use this new program and do a Boot Time Defragment of the system file You will get a Blue Screen on restart because the system files like the Paging file get relocated. You will need to restart with the Last Know Good Configuration to get your system to see the system page file.

EXTENDED SUPPORT RELEASE - FLASH PLAYER

What is the extended support release?

Adobe makes available a version of Flash Player called the "Extended Support Release" (ESR) to organizations that prefer Flash Player stability over new functionality. We have created a branch of the Flash Player code that we keep up to date with all of the latest security updates, but none of the new features or bug fixes available in our current release branch. This allows organizations to certify and stay secure on Flash Player with minimal effort.

by rewritten software.

Windows XP is a 32 bit operating system and Windows 7, and 8 are 64 bit;

this means that you are going to need new software applications or upgrade your software and pay for newer licenses to use W7 & W8.

I would suggest NOT upgrading to Windows 7.

I would think about switching to Windows 8 when it has been out 4 years.

Considering Windows 8 Upgrade? Don’t:

Rich Jaroslovsky
By Rich Jaroslovsky - Nov 7, 2012 1:00 PM PT Bloomberg Opinion
I’ve made a lot of computer blunders over the years. The biggest was taking a perfectly well- functioning Sony (6758) Vaio and upgrading it from Windows XP to Windows Vista, which left it so crash-prone as to be all but useless.

So please believe me when I offer this word of advice on installing Microsoft’s shiny new Windows 8 operating system:

Don’t.

Windows 8 is far from the disaster Vista was. But unless you have a very recent personal computer with a touch screen, there are few benefits -- and some significant drawbacks in terms of learning curve and usability -- to upgrading from Windows 7.

Its projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and run-times for building, deploying and managing software across the life-cycle. The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects and helps cultivate both an open source community and an ecosystem of complementary products and services.

The Eclipse Project was originally created by IBM in November 2001 and supported by a consortium of software vendors. The Eclipse Foundation was created in January 2004 as an independent not-for-profit corporation to act as the steward of the Eclipse community. The independent not-for-profit corporation was created to allow a vendor neutral and open, transparent community to be established around Eclipse. Today, the Eclipse community consists of individuals and organizations from a cross section of the software industry.

The Eclipse Foundation is funded by annual dues from our members and governed by a Board of Directors. Strategic Developers and Strategic Consumers hold seats on this Board, as do representatives elected by Add-in Providers and Open Source committers. The Foundation employs a full-time professional staff to provide services to the community but does not employ the open source developers, called committers, which actually work on the Eclipse projects. Eclipse committers are typically employed by organizations or are independent developers that volunteer their time to work on an open source project.

In general, the Eclipse Foundation provides four services to the Eclipse community: 1) IT Infrastructure, 2) IP Management,3) Development Process, and 4) Ecosystem Development. Full-time staff are associated with each of these areas and work with the greater Eclipse community to assist in meeting the needs of the stakeholders.

IT Infrastructure

The Eclipse Foundation manages the IT infrastructure for the Eclipse open source community, including Git code repositories, Bugzilla databases, development oriented mailing lists and forums, download site and web site. The infrastructure is designed to provide reliable and scalable service for the committers developing the Eclipse technology and the consumers who use the technology.

Intellectual Property (IP) Management

An important aspect of Eclipse is the focus on enabling the use of open source technology in commercial software products and services. We consciously promote and encourage software vendors to use Eclipse technology for building their commercial software products and services. This is made possible by the fact that all Eclipse projects are licensed under the Eclipse Public License (EPL), a commercial friendly OSI approved licensed.

Data erasure    I just took my hard drive to a hardware guy and he erased for free

DO NOT USE THIS SECTION UNLESS YOU ARE VERY SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR ARE DOING

THIS SECTION GENERALLY ERASES YOUR HARD DRIVE SO THAT THE DATA CAN NEVER BE RECOVERED!

Normally when you erase a file in MS Windows and empty it from the Recycling Bin,

that only Marks the file as deleted in the Master file table,

the file is not really deleted at all.

For simple, non secure and fast just do a Full Format of the drive; NOT a quick format.

What does Full formatting my hard disk do?

Reformatting refers to formatting a hard disk or partition that already has been formatted or that contains data on it. A FULL format of a disk deletes all of the data on the disk.

What's a quick format?   This only erases the MFT (master file table) not the data of the files.

Quick format is a formatting option that creates a new file table on a hard disk but does not fully overwrite or erase the disk. A quick format is much faster than a normal format, which fully erases any existing data on the hard disk.
