Internet for communicating with outside world, for gathering information, and for doing business. It didn't take long for people to recognize that components that worked so well on Internet could be equally valuable internally and that is why intranets are becoming so popular. Some corporations do not have TCP/IP networks, protocol required to access resources of Internet. Creating an intranet in which all information and resources can be used seamlessly has many benefits. TCP/IP-based networks make it easy for people to access network remotely, such as from home or while traveling. Dialing into an intranet in this way is much like connecting to Internet, except that you're connecting to a private network instead of to a public Internet provider. Interoperability between networks is another substantial bonus. Security systems separate an intranet from Internet. A company's intranet is protected by firewalls-hardware and software combinations that allow only certain people to access intranet for specific purposes.

and then SYSTEM TOOLS. Scandisk will check your hard drive for problems and can automatically fix most that it finds. You should run Scandisk at least once a month. Another program is DISK DEFRAGMENTER located in same System Tools folder. Disk Defragmenter actually rearranges blocks of information on your hard drive. Each time you add, remove or make changes to programs Windows will save this information to hard drive. Windows will not but these changes in any kind of logical order on drive and can/will place portions of files in different areas of drive. Disk Defragmenter checks drives and buts files in a logical order. This makes it easier for Windows to find and use files a programs needs which inturn speeds up your computer. There are also third party programs that claim to do a better job cleaning up Windows such as Norton Utilities. Be careful with third party programs, remember you are adding another program that can cause problems. If you really want to make Windows as fresh as day you installed it, start all over again. Once you start getting errors in Windows and specifically more than one application its time to start over. The best way to do this is run FDISK command from your boot disk and delete everything on your hard drive and then reinstall all. Michael List, www.mpl1.com
