Here is a list of e-books
Ralphb.net – direct link to IP-subnetting Tutorial…long enough to be a small e-book, rather than a tutorial.
Astalavista – You’ll find links for news, affiliates, a place to submit your programs and/or tutorials. Go way down
to see the tuts. An impressive selection of topics: access control (firewalls, social engineering), miscellaneous, crypto, software
cracking, ICQ, IRC, online security, intrusion detection, chat systems, hacking/security groups, protocols, denial of service, OS‘s, network auditing, securing papers, and the basics.
Nopayweb.com – over 500 e-books, listed by category…programming languages, database, internet, application, OS’s, networks, sci&tech.
Freeskills – features e-books and tutorials, with the intention of teaching people IT skills. It also has job listings and courses. Despite the name, it’s not free. The books links eventually lead you to the order form on Amazon.com, and to take the courses, you must be a member, which is 99$.
Extremetech – multi purpose site with info on audio/video, security, and OS’s. There are also tech articles, news stories, and a BBS.
Code guru – This link takes you to the C++ section of the site. Also links to other departments…like java, and visual basic. Also has a forum. It’s one of those sites that shows you how to do various things…using regular expressions for search/replace, handling
structure storage, and other things like that.
Tunes.org – Direct link to an e-book, called Review of Existing Languages.
Programmer’s Heaven – Great site, that offers info on every programming language. Also has a forum and downloads/source codes.
Planet Zikri -Nice collection, but poorly organized…alphebetical, rather than
subject…one interesting find, was a wargame manual. It has lot’s of books that I’ve never seen offered online anywhere else.
Instinct.org – This is an archive of interesting texts texts by people that have released the copyright of their books and allowed other to freely redistribute them.

Flashdance.cx – Nice selection of text files, most descriptions in Swedish but subject material can usually be figured out by file name.
Free-edFree online courses for a number of things computer related, or not.
Freebooks – A number of free books, most notably in the areas of programming, internet, and OS’s. The sight is Russian, and some of the books are in Russian, but many are in English, so it’s worth a look .
http://www.textfiles.com – goes directly to a
page that shows you mirrors for the site and affiliates/member sites. You choose a mirror, hit the button, then it finally lists it’s topics. There are many topics, most of them not computer related, but still quite a bit of what your looking for. A lot of this seems old, though.

So you have a Virus / Malware / Spy-bot / RAT

To get rid of all of them download all of these

http://www.filehippo.com/download_hijackthis/
http://www.filehippo.com/download_spyware_terminator/
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
http://www.filehippo.com/download_spybot_search_destroy/

  1. Install and reboot.
  2. Press f8 and boot in to safe mode.
  3. Run them all.
  4. Turn off the router for about 10 minutes ( do this wile in safe mode).
  5. Update Windows.
  6. Create a new non-privileged user from the control panel in windows, you will use this for day to day use.
  7. Change all your passwords make a strong password by using this.

Steps to build a strong password

The strongest passwords look like a random string of characters to attackers. But random strings of characters are hard to remember.

Make a random string of characters based on a sentence that is memorable to you but is difficult for others to guess.

  • Think of a sentence that you will remember
    Example: “My son Aiden is three years old.”
  • Turn your sentence into a password
    Use the first letter of each word of your memorable sentence to create a string, in this case: “msaityo”.
  • Add complexity to your password or pass phrase,Mix uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers. Introduce intentional misspellings.
    For example, in the sentence above, you might substitute the number 3 for the word “three”, so a password might be “MsAi3yo”.
  • Substitute some special characters
    Use symbols that look like letters, combine words, or replace letters with numbers to make the password complex.
    Using these strategies, you might end up with the password “M$8ni3y0.”
  • Test your new password with Password Checker
    Password Checker evaluates your password’s strength as you type.
  • Keep your password a secret
    Treat your passwords with as much care as the information that they protect.

This is a made simple post for the non IT people I know it’s just a reference so I can tell them what to do. It’s not for all you pro hackers out there.

Also I don’t know where I found the pass word tips if the original writer could contact me I will give you credit.
