Facebook Profile Viewer is it real?

It is really intriguing to see who viewed your Facebook profile. Friendster before had this tab labeled "Who Viewed Your Profile", clicking on it would simply show you a list of friends who have been viewing your profile. Flattering or frightening? It depends on who's viewing...

Now, you got this invitation posted by your Facebook friends, that you can see who viewed your Facebook profile. The intrigue to see who's been viewing you makes you click on the link which asked you to permit an application to access your account.

After allowing the application to proceed you are actually tricked by the apps to run a script on your browser. You are then shown a list of people that the application made you believe they have viewed your profile.

Behind the scenes, the application is also busy posting a message on your Facebook page (without your explicit permission), encouraging others to also use the application which looked like the posted invitation which you have just clicked a while ago.

What the application have done without your permission is a clear proof that it is
indeed a rogue application. It is actually a scam that is designed to make the user visit survey websites, sign up for online services or scoop up your personal information.

Did you fell for it? Remove the Facebook profile viewer invitation posted by the application on your timeline, revoke the application publishing rights and make sure that you have revoked its access to your account. And next time, google the application name or title first before allowing them access.

So, did Facebook authorized an apps to show you a list of people who have
viewed your profile? Facebook did not!!!

Where do Google Chrome install its files?

Google Chrome
The first thing a normal PC user will do to look for a program or application file is to go to Drive C: and open the default application directory folder Program Files. But, where are the Google Chrome files? It's simply not there! 

So, where does Google Chrome install itself? 

In Windows XP Google Chrome will be installed in C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local SettingsApplication Data\GoogleChrome directory.

In Windows Vista Google Chrome will be installed in C:\Users\UserName\AppData\LocalGoogleChrome directory. 

You may also replace C: with the drive windows it is installed in and UserName with the windows users you installed chrome with. 

I am using Windows 7 (x64), Google Chrome is installed in:
C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\ 

AppData is a normally hidden folder so you have tweak your windows explorer to browse the files. The probable reason of Google Chrome for installing it there is probably to allow each PC user to have independent control of their usage of the application. Chrome also does not provide any way to change the settings while you are installing the software. Whatever their reason for this we do hope it's for the advantage of Google Chrome users.

Power Surge On Hub Port

My friend’s laptop kept displaying this annoying error message “Power Surge On Hub Port.” Inside the error message box it further explain “A USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message.”

What is bothersome with the message is that there is NOT a single USB device plugged into the laptop USB ports.

So, i decided to click the error message balloon and up came Windows "Recommendation" dialog box. The dialog box gave two choices, a Reset button to reset the device’s connection and a Close button to disable the device. However, after you clicked the Reset button, the error message appeared again. Clicking the Close button to disable the port doesn’t solve the problem either.

Internally, there is something wrong with the USB controller circuitry, hence, the error message. But, fixing the circuitry is beyond the capacity of an ordinary computer user.

One informal fix to this problem is to ignore the USB problem and disable the displaying of the error message.

The steps are as follow:
Click Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware(tab) > Device Manager.
Click the + sign of the Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand the items.
right click the first USB Universal Host Controller > select Properties > select the Advanced option.
Select the checkbox “Don’t tell me about USB errors.” > click the Ok button.
close the Device Manager and Control Panel window.

It does disable the annoying Power Surge error message but this fix sometimes affect the proper working of the USB ports. 

A good workaround to this Power Surge problem is to disable the USB 2.0 enhanced host controller. When the USB 2.0 enhanced host controller is disabled, your computer loses its USB 2.0 functionality, i.e. the device is reverted to USB 1.1 functionality.

To disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, follow these steps:
1. Click Start > Control Panel.
2. Click System icon > Select the Hardware tab > Device Manager button.
3. Click the + sign of the Universal Host Controller to expand the item.
4. Right-click the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller (USB2 enhanced host controller).
5. Select Disable.
6. Click Yes on the confirmation message.
7. Close the Device Manager and Control Panel window.

This should fix the Power Surge error and make the USB port work normally in 1.1 mode.
