I Read Your Ebook, and it Gave Me A Headache! - By Dr Don Yates Sr PhD
Doing business online is a far cry from just becoming an affiliate or getting your own domain, building a website and off you go!
Whether a Newbie or a Seasoned Online Profession, we can all learn something here. This Chapter is about you and a proper start for Your Business. Successful users on the internet take care of their personal development, find and use proper tools and resources, and maintain their office equipment.
Keep yourself informed, the internet, tools, and resources change often and fast. New material is added daily, a handbook such as this can only get you started, and like any business, you will have to keep it going, growing and profitable.
Herein we offer you some tips to get on you the right path, a blueprint if you will, on how you can do that.
Your website(s) have to be marketed, regardless if it 100% autopilot, no sponsorship required, we do the marketing for you, or any of the other “hype” stories that you have or will be told.
Setup and periodically run your email advertising program. Get leads for your email and check your ads for spam. You need to learn advertising and marketing techniques. And the list goes on....
Forget the chat rooms, social networks, Skype, etc. which is time consuming or limit your time to these methods of creating business for yourself. Get a good chair and desk, table or workstation of proper height for your keyboard to minimize your discomfort.
Whether full-time or part-time treat your online job as a business and not a hobby. Your advantage is that you can do it at home. Great: No buses, no traffic and none of all those other inconveniences that you put up with in having to leave the house for an outside job. You will feel better, work better, and be more productive
If you can afford it, get a good high-speed computer, printer/fax combination, broadband or wireless modem, and a bigger monitor. Additional memory is cheap so it is value for dollar to upgrade your memory and graphics
Social networking, even email requires that your computer be able to cope with the video and graphic demands made of it. Check your computer Windows Experience rating.
Go to Start Control Panel, System and Maintenance, Performance Information and Tools; Check Your Computer’s Window Experience Index Base Score. Click on Window Experience Index link

This screen will advise you of the weak points in your computer that you might make an upgrade to improve performance, again check the memory. Usually, the memory and graphics will be your computers weak points. Again, if you are buying new, be sure to check this before your leave the shop. The above picture shows a rating of 4.8, which is the memory ram. Below is same machine after it has been upgraded.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability.
A true virus can only spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer.
Most personal computers are now connected to the Internet and to local area networks, facilitating the spread of malicious code. Today's viruses may also take advantage of network services such as the World Wide Web, e-mail, Instant Messaging, and file sharing systems to spread. Wikipedia
As an active online user, you must protect your computer and files from any such attacks. Windows defender helps, but I prefer to supplement windows features with a third party solution.
While there a many paid commercial and free software available to you, I have had satisfactory results for a free program for personal use offered by Avast, although I have since upgraded to full-protection. This software program automatically runs in the background and is updated to keep your virus detection current. Free version available. Avast
New computers normally come with a trial version of virus software leaving it up to you to accept and upgrade or not. I delete and install Avast
Windows Update: Keeping your computer software updated can reduce your changes of a getting a computer virus, better operation and performance. Window update can update both windows and other Microsoft problem as the same time
- Go to Start – lower left hand windows logo
- All programs
- Find “Windows Update”
- Click and let it run
If you leave your computer running all night, you can set the update software to update the computer automatically; however, it will reboot itself to install the changes. Therefore, if you have Forex trades going, then your Forex sites will be offline until you open them again.
If there are a lot of updates, then it is recommended that you run the update program again to get updates to the updates. Change happens!
Window update can update all your Microsoft products
Recycle Bin: When you delete a file from your computer, it is temporarily stored in the Recycle Bin. This usually gives you an opportunity to restore the file to its original location if you discover that the file should not have been deleted.
To permanently remove files from the computer and reclaim any hard disk space they were using, you need to permanently delete files from the Recycle Bin. You can choose to delete individual files from the Recycle Bin or empty the entire Recycle Bin at once.
- Click to open Recycle Bin.
- Do one of the following: To delete one file, click it, and then press DELETE. To delete all of the files, on the toolbar, click Empty the Recycle Bin.
Disk cleanup can also delete your recycle bin
Disk Cleanup: If you want to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your hard disk to free up disk space and help your computer run faster, use Disk Cleanup. It removes temporary files, empties the Recycle Bin, and removes a variety of system files and other items that you no longer need.
Click to open Disk Cleanup.
- In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box, choose whether you want to clean up your own files only or all of the files on the computer.If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
- If the Disk Cleanup: Drive Selection dialog box appears, select the hard disk drive that you want to clean up, and then click OK.
- Click the Disk Cleanup tab, and then select the check boxes for the files you want to delete.
- When you finish selecting the files you want to delete, click OK, and then click Delete files to confirm the operation. Disk Cleanup proceeds to remove all unnecessary files from your computer.
- Disk cleanup can also delete the files in the recycle bin
- Click to open Disk Defragmenter.If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
- Click Defragment Now.
If you have not defragmented your computer in a while, then you should repeat the process a second time.
One Vendor with various free tools, including both registry clean up and defrag, that work well for me may be found at Auslogics Auslogics is easy to use, fast and nice graphic interface for the Disk Defrag, registry cleaner, etc.
Again, recommend performing the defrag more than one, as each pass defrag the majority, but another pass may find more. For the amount of work that I do online, I often need to defrag at least once a week with maybe 2-3 passes
While you are there, see the other products Auslogics has to offer. I like their Boost Speed Program.
For the more computer savvy: Got to the Widows logo located at the lower left corner. Type “msconfiq” in the bottom box. The link will show in the window under Programs. Click and this will bring up a new screen
Click the “Start-up” tab and unclick those programs that you don’t need at start-up. Keep your Microsoft, virus and related programs. Click “Apply” and restart your computer. Try it, if you are uncomfortable, then do nothing and let someone else do it for you. Do so, at your own risk.
RoboForm includes a password generator which is convenient to generate and save different passwords for multiple sites, as has been recommended herein. If you maintain a lot of sites, as I do, then the upgrade is great, but not necessary. Upgrading enables you to click and the site loads and logs you in. The free version will log you in after you have loaded the site.

Success often comes to those who look, feel and act the part. Success radiates through others. If you feel good about yourself, then your chances of success improve. In most cases, to be successful, you need to surround yourself with good people. However, since you are most likely working alone, surround yourself with the proper tools and equipment to make your feel successful. Just as you need to keep yourself informed and up to day, you also need to keep your computers and equipment running at its top performance. Get comfortable and enjoy your online experiences.
If you still like the original deal better; then complete your signup up on the second site that you made, before this experiment.
