"full_ford" and "KFFOWI" Computer Showing in my Network Devices - What is it?

I have a strange, unidentified computer showing in my Explorer Network list. It shows as "full_ford" and when I look at it's Properties, it says "KFFOWI". I'm wondering if I got hacked?? Does anyone know what it is?

I Can't See Any Shared Folders or Computers Anymore (on Windows 10)

Hello Geeks!

I can't remember exactly when this happened, or how long it's been this way because I only use shared folders once in a while, but I used to be able to click on the "Network" icon in Windows Explorer and see all the computers in my Workgroup, and then see any shared folders each computer shared if I clicked on one of them. I no longer can do this. It seemed to just "stop", out of nowhere.

What Version of NDIS is My Computer Using?

Need to know which version of the NDIS driver is installed on any network card on your computer?

Maybe you're fighting with MiraCast Wink like half the internet is, and have come to realize that one requirement is a WiFi network card that supports at minimum NDIS 6.3?

You've come to the right place (but as a regular GeekDropper, you already knew this, right? ... Tongue ), it's cake, just:

  • Fire up Windows PowerShell: Windows Key + R , type "powershell" , press Enter
  • 2.833332

Auto login after PC is locked?

OK this may sound like a weird thing to want to do. If you have a PC that has no password associated with it and you lock it all you do is click back in and you don't need to enter in a password. Well I have built a home theater PC and I have it joined to my Domain so it has to have a password because it's a domain user. I created a policy preference and associated it to the PC that will create the registry key's that will allow this pc to log in automatically. But what I'm wanting is to lock the machine and not need to enter in the password to unlock it.

How To Secure Your Public Wi-Fi Sessions

One of the nice things about owning a laptop or a netbook is that you can be mobile. The only problem with going mobile is that when you connect to the internet though public wi-fi you do open yourself up to possible hackers. As technology grows its easier and easier to break into a unsuspecting person and they have no clue. With a few easy steps you can protect yourself. Not to mention I will show you how you can do it for FREE.
