End of Microsoft’s Masters Certification & Training Program by 1st Oct 2013

Posted by Awinish on September 2, 2013


Microsoft has decided to retire Microsoft Master’s certification and training program by 1st October. For the folks, who are not aware or heard about this program, the MCM & MCA (Microsoft Certified Master & Microsoft Certified Architect) program is one of the highest certification one can achieve towards specialization in particular Microsoft technology such as Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Active Directory etc. The reason mentioned for the retirement for MCM/MCA is technology evaluation which requires rework on the training program. For the individual, who already holds this certificates will continue to enjoy the benefits, but MS will not accept any more request for conducting new program for this certifications.

“Microsoft will no longer offer Masters and Architect level training rotations and will be retiring the Masters level certification exams as of October 1, 2013. The IT industry is changing rapidly and we will continue to evaluate the certification and training needs of the industry to determine if there’s a different certification needed for the pinnacle of our program..”

Microsoft has made a announcement that from the Jan 2010, IE will be updated automatically if windows automatic update is turned on. It will happen automatically in the background without any user intervention and maintaining your favorites,home page  etc.

Most of the attack on the system are caused by web browser, so MS has decided to introduce automatic IE update to secure the system from malware/spywares. Read more at below links.

Tweak..Enhance Internet Speed..Give a try.

Posted by Awinish on February 6, 2011


1.Go to Start –> Run and type regedit

2. Select hkey_current_user –> Software –> Microsoft –> Windows –> Current Version–> Internet Settings

3. Change the Decimal Value of “MaxConnections Per1_0Server” and “MaxConnections PerServer” (without the spaces) to 10

4. Close regedit and Reboot the machine

If these keys don’t already exist, create them, make two dword values

[Right click, New> dword Value]
MaxConnections Per1_0Server : Decimal value 10
MaxConnections PerServer : Decimal value 10
Internet Explorer performance is greatly dependent in part on the number of simultaneous connections that can be made for a current page. By default, the value is 4. This means only a maximum of 4 simultaneous connections will be made per server.
