In some places such as schools, offices or cafes there are sites like Facebook, Friendster, Youtube and others are deliberately blocked by the admin with a specific reason. But with a little trick, We can access or open the blocked sites. Here are some steps:

1. Using the IP address
Every time we browse the Internet almost all of them typing the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) such as google.com, youtube.com. URL used to distinguish a web address and of course all sites have a URL that is not the same, except that the URL can facilitate internet users to remember the web address on the internet. But the computer does not understand the format like a URL, the computer can only read the IP address to be able to access and communicate with each other website on the internet.

Sometimes sites are blocked sites are stored URL address or just block the URL address just so that if accessed through its IP address can still be open. To find the IP address of a website we can ping a website via command prompt, once known IP addresses, type the IP address into the browser.

2. Redirect URL via urlShortener service
Convert a site URL address in block with short URL services like SnipURL, goo.gl, or bit.ly. This trick can bypass the blocking admin setting.

3. Using the online Proxy
Some sites provide free proxy service which we can access the website through their servers, the most frequent site I use is hidemyass.com. Although it’s free but not disappointing.

4. Using a proxy in your browser
Lots of sites that released a list of proxies from various countries. To get the proxy list that can fit in looking at samair.ru, select one of the proxy. Open firefox-> click tools-> select options-> select advanced-> select the network-> click the settings button-> Connection Settings window will appear select Manual proxy configuration: -> enter the IP address of the proxy and its port and press OK.

Rename A Start Button – Windows xp

To rename the start button, you will just need to do is download Resource hacker.

Resource HackerTM is a freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract resources in 32bit Windows executables and resource files (*.res). It incorporates an internal resource script compiler and decompiler and works on Win95, Win98, WinME, WinNT, Win2000 and WinXP operating systems.

To Download Click here

First Step : The first step is to make a backup copy of the file explorer.exe located at C:\Windows\explorer. Place it in a folder somewhere on your hard drive where it will be safe. Start Resource Hacker and open explorer.exe located at C:\Windows\explorer.exe
The category we are going to be using is String Table In Resource Hacker. Expand it by clicking the plus sign then navigate down to and expand string 37 followed by highlighting 1033. If you are using the Classic Layout rather than the XP Layout, use number 38. The right hand pane will display the stringtable as shown in Fig. We’re going to modify item 578, currently showing the word “start” just as it displays on the current Start button.

There is no magic here. Just double click on the word “start” so that it’s highlighted, making sure the quotation marks are not part of the highlight. They need to remain in place, surrounding the new text that you’ll type. Go ahead and type your new entry.

Compile and save (actually save as) with another name like expmann.exe

Second Step: Modify the Registry Now that the modified expmann.exe has been created it’s necessary to modify the registry so the file will be recognized when the user logs on to the system. If you don’t know how to access the registry I’m not sure this article is for you, but just in case it’s a temporary memory lapse, go to Start (soon to be something else) Run and type regedit in the Open: field. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon

the Right pane, double click the Shell entry to open the Edit String dialog box as shown in Fig.  In Value data: line, enter the name that was used to save the modified expmann.exe file. Click OK.

Close Registry Editor and reboot the entire system. If all went as planned you should see your new Start button with the revised text.
