How much they know about you?

1 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-20 23:01
How much does Google/Firefox/websites know about you.

If you search on a website.. Not Google...does Google know ?

How much privacy do we have.
How many people are being monitored

What do they do with it?

they know your browsing habits through their browser, and can correlate it with IP and the size of your browser.

they sell it to other companies to make money from it and better advertise to you

Do they cross reference when you log into websites so they know all about you

Chromium thread.

1 Name: Anonymous 2017-06-14 07:11
Okay /comp/ I need some insight. Have any of you ever run across this program? It's called Chromium.

Some fucking how it downloaded itself onto my computer maybe a month ago, and now nothing I can do will uninstall this fucker, I've tried all I can think of.

uninstall programs control panel
express uninstaller doesn't fucking locate it, so can't use that
using regedit to find all locations and delete them doesn't work because I hit a wall where the last file will tell me "cannot perform function at this time"

It's really fucking annoying, and I don't know how bad it's gonna get.

If you have friends or coworkers you trust who you know do drugs, ask them. If you're afraid of meeting a drug dealer, ask who your friend or coworker to help you out and be ready to pay more than someone else might. Going through a trusted third party and paying a little more shouldn't be considered the end of the world. Illegal narcotics are illegal and no one wants to be the dude who goes to jail just because he wanted some pot.

Bypass password on windows 8,

1 Name: Anonymous 2017-07-22 19:23
Is there still an easy way to bypass somebody's password on windows 8, without them knowing you've done so? There's a girl staying at my place, and I know for a fact that she has a folder of her nudes on her PC. I remember seeing a video before where you could open command prompt from the password input screen, and then somehow get into the files from there.
I'm sure i've seen the video somewhere, but of course nothing is so easy to find on google these days. Most of the ones I can find involve resetting the password, which is clearly mad suspicious. I have about three hours today while she's out of the house to do whatever I can to get in, and will share all her hot nudes with y'all if i can get access.
Does anyone know of a way to get into this girl's computer without her knowing that I did it?

DO NOT TAKE OUT THE HARD DRIVE! You might screw something up. Also, DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, RESET THE PASSWORD. It's time consuming and super suspicious. Download a Linux image (if you're a noob I recommend Ubuntu or Linux Mint), install it onto a flash drive with either Universal USB Installer or Unetbootin, or burn it onto a DVD. Then, boot from the flash drive/DVD and open the Windows 8 partition. Then just browse the files.

My video card is very dated.

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-06-17 16:06
So hey /comp/ my video card is very dated, I'm currently running a Sapphire ATI HD 6950 2GB but its like an 8 year old card and struggles to run current games.

I found an MSI Radeon RX 580 DirectX 12 RX 580 ARMOR MK2 8G OC 8GB 256-Bit for $300

Im wanting to upgrade my video card but also dont want to break the bank. I did a little reaserch on it and it seems to get good reviews and seems to be MUCH better then what im running. one of the reviews I read said with it he runs Metro last light on ultra at like 50 FPS. just as a benchmark.

What would you recommend thats reasonably priced for an upgrade. Im looking for a good card for a decent price. Something that will keep me going for a few more years. Example, (not saying I want to but an example) Id like to be able to run say, The Division 2 or Fallout 76 on High/Med that should be able to keep me going for a few years.

I dont care if its Nvidia of ATI, ive always used ATI since the 90s, but im not super picky about it I just want a good card for the money.

The internet only really kicked off at the end of the 90's, coinciding with the dot-com bubble, so it's not like the 90's were a magical fairyland of the internet. During most of the 90's, the internet were BBS's, Newsgroups and that wonderful new technology called "e-mail", which computer magazines would helpfully explain stood for "electronic mail"
