A VPN offer network connection over a possibly long physical distance. For example, with VPN, you can smoothly and quickly visit overseas websites that are not available via your local network. In some countries, websites outside their country are blocked. Then you may not access Google, Facebook, Youtube, twitter and many other blocked apps and websites in that country. A VPN works by setting up a dedicated, encrypted link between a person’s computer, Mac ,phone, tablet and the website or service they want to use and makes spying on the data flowing across the connection difficult.

How to Fix High CPU Usage Caused by System Interrupts

Hello, my computer’s CPU usage percentage always keeps high and I’ve noticed one process that is always active called “System Interrupts,” in this moment, it consumes on average 3.4% of CPU. I never know this kind of process. What exactly is this system interrupt? And is it necessary for Windows system? What can I do to reduce the percentage of usage of system resource?

What’s System Interrupts?

System Interrupts is also called “Interrupts” and “IRQs” which actually are operating system level processes. Interrupts are a form of communication between software and hardware with the CPU. For example, when you type on your keyboard, the hardware and software will respectively send interrupts to inform the CPU of the task at hand then respond to the task by doing necessary processing. On Wikipedia, it explains as below:

In system programming, an interrupt is a signal to the processor emitted by hardware or software indicating an event that needs immediate attention. An interrupt alerts the processor to a high-priority condition requiring the interruption of the current code the processor is executing. The processor responds by suspending its current activities, saving its state, and executing a function called an interrupt handler (or an interrupt service routine, ISR) to deal with the event. This interruption is temporary, and, after the interrupt handler finishes, the processor resumes normal activities.

How to Use VPN on Mobile Device: Phone & Tablet

Hello, I want to install one VPN into my Samsung S7, but I don’t know how to get it and set up. Now I travel to another country but I want to surf websites operated in my country, and many websites and services are blocked here. I also want to upload some interesting picture into my blog to share with my friends and family. My friend suggests me sigh up a VPN service to freely visit the sites I expect. My friend also tells me that there are many different VPN services provided online, but I can’t figure out which one should be the best for my Samsung S7. Do you have any advices?

Why People use VPN on Mobile Device like Phone and tablet?

A VPN can help bypass firewall to get access to overseas websites. It creates a secure and encrypted way over local public network between your mobile device like phone and tablet or computer and any sites, service and apps you want to access. For example, if you travel abroad to China, you will find that you can’t open such websites as Google, FaceBook, You tube, Twitter and many other websites outside China. That’s because Chinese government creates and utilizes a stringent network barrier system called GFW (Great Fire Wall) to censor the Internet and preserve China’s “cyberspace sovereignty”. But if you have one VPN, you can evade censorship and bypass GFW and get full internet access to any websites outside China and your “local” sites. Besides, some people also want to access overseas websites that is blocked by their own country’s government internet censorship supervision, but with the help of VPN services, those people can easily browse websites operated by other many countries. Therefore, a VPN becomes more and more useful and essential tool for many people to get access to sites blocked by local network.

Best VPN for China

Hey, there! I am now outside of America and just arrive in China for a business trip. However, when I tried to log in FaceBook to contact my friends or my colleague, FaceBook was blocked. And also our company’s website is also not available for me. I really need to download some information from our websites in USA, but the site is totally blocked. It seems Google, You tube, Twitter, Gmail and many foreign websites are not allowed to access. Do you guys have any ideas to help me get access to any websites in US?

Why Websites like Google, You Tube and FaceBook etc are Blocked?

Why can you not access websites and other service outside China when you are in China? Chinese government operates its filtering system dubbed the Great Firewall (GFW) to censor the Internet. This sophisticated net censorship system both limits the places people can go online and what they can search for and discuss. Therefore, Google, Gmail, FaceBook, You Tube, Twitter and many foreign websites are blocked. And in last year, Chinese government updated nation’s firewall in order to preserve China’s “cyberspace sovereignty”. However, with updating of Great Firewall last year, foreign websites and service are severely hindered. So it’s more difficult for Chinese people and people coming to China to connect websites outside China. This is the reason why you can’t log in FaceBook, open You Tube and visit other websites of your country when you visit China.
