    How to install Whatsapp on Tablets without SIM Card 

    Do you get this message ? – “whatsapp doesn’t work on tablets
    Here is a workaround


    First you have to install Whatsapp on an working Android Phone (Ex: Galaxy S4)
    After that, backup Whatsapp using App Backup and Restore app (it requires an SD card)

    Transfer the .apk file created on the SD Card using an USB Cable or by transfering the SD Card.
    Install the WhatsappBackup.apk
    Add your phone number.
    You will receive a SMS with a 6 digit code.
    Whatsapp will try to detect the SMS but since you do not have a SIM Card after 5 minutes it will let you insert the code manualy.

    Install internet explorer 8 silently on remote computers – SCRIPT 

    Create a txt document (Ex: pcs.txt) and write the computer names in it like this:

    Copy the script below, paste it in a txt document and save it with the .bat extension.
    The script copies the ie8.exe kit from this location \\mycomputer\c$\IE to the stations listed in the pcs.txt document. After the internet explorer kit is copied, psexec.exe tool installs it. If you don’t have psexec download it from here:

    You must open the .bat with a domain admin user (administrator rights on the remote computers). To do that press Shift Key and right click on the .bat, Run as different user. Type the user and password and the script does the rest.

    @echo off
    for /F “usebackq delims==” %%I in (“pcs.txt”) do Call :begin %%I
    goto :EOF

    set srv=%1
    :get info

    robocopy \\mycomputer\c$\IE \\%srv%\c$ /XF MTenav_*.* /r:0 /w:0

    psexec -u domain\user -p YourPasword \\%srv% -i c:\ie8.exe /quiet /update-no /norestart

    To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program – Fix – Works 100% 

    This happens because Data Execution Prevention is on.

    There are two symptoms of this error. One is the Data Execution Prevention window with the message specified in the title (To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program) and the other is res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm error.


    Go to Start->Run , type %systemroot%:\boot.ini (in most cases systemroot is the letter C) and hit Enter.

    A window will open.
    Search for noexecute=optin and change it to noexecute=alwaysoff .
    Save (Ctrl + S) and restart the computer.
    Problem Solved.
    This only works in Windows XP.

      Followed the instruction, but the text in the window said “noexecute=optout” I changed as you suggested to “alwaysoff”, but I was unable to save the change. Any ideas??

    How to check the Internet Explorer version on Remote Computer 

    To verify the Internet Explorer Version on a remote computer you can use psinfo.exe.

    PsInfo is a command-line tool that gathers key information about the local or remote Windows system.

    PsInfo is part of PsTools and you can download it from here.

    Open a cmd window with administrator credentials. The credentials must be for a member of the local Administrators group on the remote computer.

    To do that , go to Start ->; Run and type : runas /user:domain\user cmd and hit Enter . You will be asked to enter the password.

    After the window opens , use the code below.
    For a list of computers:
    psinfo @pcs.txt |findstr /B "IE version:" >> "C:\IEversion.txt"

    For a single computer:
    psinfo \\computername |findstr /B "IE version:"

      This can only check the original version of IE not IE service pack, lets say if you get ie 9 with windows, then you upgraded to ie10, the results of ths psinfo only show ie 9

    How to surf blocked sites – YouTube or others 

    I have restricted access to YouTube. helps me with this problem. The streaming is filtered via their servers and it works just fine. The video quality is lower , but is better than nothing.

    You can use hidemyass for other websites as well. Give it a try :)

    It doesn’t work on sites where you must login, like Facebook, Gmail or others.

    If hidemyass is also banned, then you can try an online video downloader.
