US to Shoot Down Broken Spy Satellite

It seems that US is going to shoot down the spy Satellite that is going to fall on earth.The following is an excerpt from AOL

     Taking a page from Hollywood science fiction, the Pentagon said Thursday it will
try to shoot down a dying, bus-size U.S. spy satellite loaded with toxic fuel on
a collision course with the Earth. The military hopes to smash the satellite as
soon as next week - just before it enters Earth's atmosphere - with a single
missile fired from a Navy cruiser in the northern Pacific Ocean.

I hope this new procedure if successful would help humanity one day to shoot down asteroids and other bodies when they threaten earth.
Also if man migrates to space like in gundam series and spacenoids drop colonies,asteroids onto earth when we have space wars we can blast them using missiles :-)

Attached country codes tool to footer

I found this very useful site which gives information on how people from one country can place a call to numbers other than their own.I have added the site tool to the footer. Just click the footer and it will take you to a page which has two selection boxes where you have to choose the country from where you are dialing and the country to which you want to make a call.Then the webpage shows you as to how to dial the number.I hope people would find it useful.

Open Drive In New Window,Unable To Access Hidden Files

Finally I narrowed down upon the culprits causing the problems mentioned in the heading.

The trick to solve the problem is to use third party windows folder viewers.I recommend usage of 7zip's(http://www.7-zip.org/) explorer view.

Also it would be better if you could get hold of any file erasing software like Eraser(http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/download.php)

Browse each drive root(Eg :- C;\,d:\ etc) using 7zip explorer window. The culprits are autorun.inf , some *.bat file with name starting with letter 'w'.Delete them using eraser.

Also look into c:\windows\system32 folder where the culprits for disabling access to hidden folders are present.They are called tavo.exe,tavo.dll,kav0.dll,kavo.exe etc and another oddly named exes.It would be a peculiar name.So you can find it easily

To restore the hidden files option use this command in command mode
"regsvr32 /i shell32.dll"

These viruses spread usually through thumb drives.So be careful while using thumb drives in others systems.

If you have any problem in cleaning leave a message in the shoutbox or leave me a message in meebo widget or you can leave your comments here.

P.S. Attempt to do this only if you are fully are aware of the fact that you are not deleting windows system files like ntldr etc:Otherwise you will be in for bigger trouble like forced to reinstall windows.
