A clean Personal Computer

Good Tips on Keeping that New PC Clean and Pure, Safe, working… 
” Here is what you need to do before you do anything else.
First check your actrual ISP speed http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/

1: CHECK YOUR FIREWALL SETTINGS Do this before you even connect your computer to the Internet. Firewalls prevent certain unwanted traffic from reaching your computer, including worms that spread through network connections. New laptops and desktops with Windows Vista (and, come Oct. 22, the next version of the operating system, Windows 7) and netbooks using Windows XP SP2 or higher have a firewall that is built in and turned on by default. You can make sure all is well by going to the Windows Security Center, clicking Start, then Control Panel, then Security Center and Windows Firewall.

2: CONTINUALLY  UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE Even though you have a new machine, chances are that security fixes have been issued since the manufacturer loaded the software, so you will want to download those as soon as you get online.

Your new PC may prompt you to check for updates from Microsoft, but, if not, open Windows Update by clicking the Start button, then All Programs and then Windows Update. On the left pane, click “check for updates.” (For more information about Windows Security, see microsoft.com/protect.)

3: ADD SECURITY SOFTWARE Firewalls won’t help fend off viruses or Trojan horses that can come through e-mail messages, Web sites and pop-up ads. Given the frightening number of malicious programs that aim for Windows PCs, owners of these machines really need to use some security software. There are several free antivirus programs, like AVG 8.5 Free, Avast Antivirus and the forthcoming Microsoft Security Essentials, so even penniless students have no excuse to go without. Note that Vista comes with Windows Defender, which blocks spyware and pop-up ads, and that program can be downloaded free by Windows XP SP2 machines.

Since a lot of malicious programs now come through Web sites, you will also want to use one of the many free tools available to help you avoid malicious sites. Microsoft’s newest browser, Internet Explorer 8, will warn you if you try to visit sites it deems unsafe, deceptive or carriers of a common Web attack type called “cross-site scripting” attacks. Other browsers, including Chrome, Firefox and Safari, also warn users about potentially unsafe sites, using a blacklist kept by Google. There is also McAfee’s SiteAdvisor, a free add-on for the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers (the latter works on both Windows and Mac), that shows site reputation information within search results pages, including warnings about potentially dangerous sites.

4: AUTOMATIC UPDATES everything, download Secunia PSI, a free tool that will help you make sure that all the programs on your PC get security patches.

5 BE CAREFUL Speaking of that, always be careful about which software you install from the Internet, OR FROM OTHERS, whether you have a PC or a Mac. These programs can contain vulnerabilities, and pirated programs and random add-ons may be outright malicious. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/03/technology/personaltech/03basics.html?_r=1&em

6: BACK UP YOUR HARD DRIVE. External hard drives are cheap these days, about 100 dollars, so back up all, all of your computer on an external flash drive periodically… admit it or not, the chance of getting at least one had drive crash is a definite possibility for whatever reasons now too, and you will be glad you had your computer backed up.

Heart Stress reduction

 heart

I too have found the free great cure, a help to relieve my blood pressure *, stress, and instead of keeping it all boiled up inside I express it, share it with everyone else all of  the things that rightfully have peeved me off, and it seems I keep on coming back to my favorite complaints until they actually get resolved including:
  
  • Not enough is being done about the drunk drivers, alcoholics in the government too Drink Alcohol and Die
  • Too many politicians still lie to get elected Canada wide Pie in the sky – Pie in the Face   Interesting reading, comments too, Liberal & Conservative Politicians do lie too
  • Bad Spouse and lawyers who lie, perjure themselves in the courts Divorce And Remarriage In The Christian Church
  •   
    Mr. Harper is gone… let us all rejoice. This is the worst PM this country has ever seen. This will be his last election win or lose. The CONS won’t even give him another chance. This is a great day, we can finally see the end of Harper… Little doves fly off… 😉http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/02/politics-ekos-poll-voter-intention090209.html?ref=rss&loomia_si=t0:a16:g2:r1:c0.107087:b27540124   2/3 of the people do not like Harper still.
     
    Mulroney doubts Schreiber affair will tarnish his legacy .. there is nothing left worth tarnishing. The man’s arrogance is exceeded only by the size of his monumental ego, and by his general lack of regard for Canadians. Canadians will forever view with deep suspicion a former prime minister who met with a shady businessman in a hotel overseas for the sole purpose of being paid in cash.  It is hard to tarnish something that had no shine to begin with Brian. He needn’t worry…..his legacy as the worst prime minister in Canada’a history is secure. He’s right. You can’t tarnish crap. He is right, he left a legacy of deceit and dishonestly long before Schrieber came along. Schrieber just proved our suspicions. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/03/brian-mulroney-progressive-election-election-win-anniversary.html  But undeniably Schreiber affair already has tarnished his legacy, and Mulroney is still one of the most disliked Prime Minister of Canada, especially in his home province of Quebec. He is more disliked that PM Harper is in Quebec.
     
    Rich and Powerful  Michael Bryant has hired the best PR, Lawyers, Spin doctors to try to clean up his tarnished image, to falsely deny he killed someone too., As a person who has regularly followed the related Canadian news stores, issues in regard to drunk driving, speeding, accidents, driver error it is  VERY CLEAR TO ME THAT THE NEWS MEDIA SPIN for the major causes of the accidents, and also for the hidden tax, the need for more revenue generating traffic tickets, THEIR TRUTH  VARIES FROM DAY TODAY AND CANNOT BE ACCEPTED AS BEING ANYTHING CLOSE TO THE TRUTH. Not even in Alberta. Why? Poor Journalism for a start, lying, incompetent politicians, policemen’s views too. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/ 
     

    Buyer beware: No laws dictate inspection frequency There are no laws in Canada dictating how often gas pumps must be checked for accuracy, and the government agency that does the inspections is doing fewer every year. http://www2.canada.com/ottawacitizen/features/hosedatthepumps/index.html

     

    In its first year, 2007-08,  CCTS was still unable able to resolve about 40  per cent, of the complaints according to its own website. What a very high failure rate.  About one-third of the complaints were related to wireless services. 40  per cent, that is about the number of unhappy Customers with Bell’s Internet services too http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/commissioner-for-complaints-for-telecommunications-services/

    The governments promise consumer protection, they have a department for it as well,they  take tax dollars for this service too, but it still is mostly a pretentious, unenforced  department that cops out with “buyers beware” and we need more such liars, abusers now too? http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/federal-consumer-protection-ha-ha-ha/

    Women outnumber men in Canadian workforce for first time in history Sat Sep 5, 2009 TORONTO – Women labour leaders say there’s a “dark side” to Statistics Canada figures suggesting that for the first time in history there are more women than men in Canada’s workforce.  Women outnumber men cause women are wrongfully paid less then men, they are cheaper to hire, keep.

    The Jobless need more help, and the present federal Stimulus budget  in reality  is still unlikely to stem ALL OF THE MUCH TOO MANY job losses, or  help all of the presently unemployed. Instead of everyone chasing their own tail we need to get down to serious job creation programs, give real help to the unemployed.

    And the Number of EI recipients  does not include  all the people who gave up and went to social aid ? or holding many part time jobs, not making enough money being  self employed  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/21/canadas-unemployment-figures-lie/

    If you are a Control freak you are not only still an unrealistic, immature, immoral person  but you  may have a serious personality disorder. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/control-freaks/  http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/08/12/more-about-control-freaks/ 

    I too do not have to accept any Church corruptions by any pastors now in Canada as well.
     
    (1 Cor 5:11 KJV)  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12   For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13   But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
     
    (Mat 24:48 KJV)  But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49  And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50  The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
     
    I have to admit it came to me as a shock firstly when I started to attend evangelical, Baptist,  Pentecostal churches in Canada now as an adult that that same right to be respect, to  speak, and to be heard, not to be bullied, falsely oppressed, the Legal and Human rights that I had before, often now did not exist in the churches surprisingly now of all places. Never saw so many control freaks, human rights abusers in my whole life next to the too often bad cops now too. And perversely many a despotic, crooked elder, pastor had wrongfully tried to shut me up, and even next had resorted next to slander me, to try to discredit me and what I had said, or whatever, now even both in Quebec and in Alberta.
     
    The  Pastor had said that God does not let us to talk to anyone who drinks wine, but this is a rather distorted, extreme interpretation of the Bible. The Bible clearly says WE ARE NOT TO FELLOWSHIP WITH A CHRISTIAN PERSON  WHO GETS DRUNK.. now that is really different from not talking to any of the people who drink wine.. and why is this pastor so ready not to talk with others now too? so ready to smite them, to kick them out of church? If you have love for someone you are willing to talk with them, but if you do not have love for them, especially if, when you know they do not support you, do not agree with your presentation, do not agree  with your point of view, you as a pastor too no can personally can instead  refuse to love them, you refuse to talk to them, you find any excuse to reject, ostracize, divorce them basically to deny, to cover up the unacceptable reality that you yourself the pastor actually do not have any love for them.https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/get-real-now/ 
     
     TORONTO — The signatories of a new letter accusing the Toronto International Film Festival of becoming “complicit in the Israeli propaganda machine” run the gamut from an Oscar-winning actress to a rabble-rousing author to a Talking Head. More than 50 people have added their name to what’s being called The Toronto Declaration, including musician David Byrne, actors Danny Glover and Jane Fonda, and author Alice Walker. The declaration states that while the signatories are not protesting the individual filmmakers participating in the program and do not seek to exclude Israeli films from the festival, “in the wake of this year’s brutal assault on Gaza, we object to the use of such an important international festival in staging a propaganda campaign on behalf of what South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former U.S. president Jimmy Carter and UN General Assembly President Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann have all characterized as an apartheid regime.” http://www.nationalpost.com/arts/story.html?id=1960040

    The US too regrets Israel’s reported settlement plans WASHINGTON —  “We regret the reports of Israel’s plans to approve additional settlement construction, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement. “Continued settlement activity is inconsistent with Israel’s   international commitments to the peace proces sunder the Roadmap,” he said, referring to the blueprint for a permanent two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  “As the president has said before, the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement expansion and we urge that it stop,” http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gEeOBTqrp_Xwhd8Lzshr-sppfjew

     

    I too was really rightfully upset that President George Bush and Prime Minister Stephen Harper had wrongfully allowed Israel to kill wrongfully Lebanon Christians in Lebanon.. http://pkbulow.tripod.com/1.htm 

     Honest People speak out against Israel the Bully and Bell Canada the Bully, the bullies,  and   as  you can tell I really, really rightfully  do not like it when any crook, crooked pastor, or crooked cops, crooked politician  tries to shut me up, and I  just speak louder to all then.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/08/harper-stays-silent-on-gaza/   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/anti-jewish/
     

    Hey I am the first one to admit that I am intolerant when I see prolonged injustices, abuses, perversity  I do tend to do something about it.. yes the lid flies of this boiling kettle now too,  and public exposure, prosecution of the guilty serves as a good example to all as well. 

     I do not write at all to have my own  name recognized, I write my complaints so something good can be done by others on the behalf of all Canadians. For the most part the self serving persons in politics in Canada is still really not acceptable. Politicians are paid by the tax payers to look after the good welfare of all citizens and sadly this has not been the case the last 20 years even in the federal cabinet. It should be still the case.

    If you read my articles you know I cannot stand unrepentant alcoholics, lying salesmen, lying and abusive lawyers, crooked pastors, crooked or bad cops, crooked accountants,  crooked or bad civil servants too, crooked or bad politicians and even bad prime Ministers. By the way some of the most perverse, pretentious persons, to me rightfully as well, are the past, present mostly pretentious federal and provincial Justice Ministers, Premiers, Prime Minister who tend not to deal  adequately with their bad colleagues, crooks  to start of with.
     
    I also do  know for a fact that both the internet and the non doctors, alternative approaches,  were unable to help me with my serious medical conditions many times  Rather it took real and competent doctors and real, valid  diagnostic equipment/testing  to deal with my  heart problems, diabetes, congestive heart failure, gland problems, vitamin deficiencies, cataracts, etc . Let’s insure we all can get that too now. Good, real medicare.
      
    * It is estimated that nearly one in three  adults have high blood pressure. People from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who suffer a heart attack come to the emergency department more often, are less likely to be treated aggressively and have higher mortality rates a year after heart attack, says new University of Alberta research that has important implications for access to cardiac care. If blood pressure is not brought back to the normal range it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. Magnesium, Cayenne Pepper, Onions, Garlic, Bananas   have also been demonstrated to be effective in bringing down high blood pressure. Eat also a food diet high in fiber, fresh fruit, more vegeatables  and food always low in sugar, and low in salt.  Avoid the negative side effects of today’s medicines such as Diuretics, Beta Blockers, Alpha Blockers and the related abusive, extortionate, crushing financial costs. Get more physical excercise  and find postive ways of getting rid of your unbeneficial stress too. http://pbulow.tripod.com/health.htm  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/why-heart-attacks-often-kill-still/
     
    Isn’t it nice I can use my right of free speech now as well.
     
    Free speech too often is a right mainly for the rich, the bad guys, crooks, not the decent folks. I also do I know that bad guys and gals such as the crooked cops, crooked pastors, crooked politicians,  crooked anyone do not like me to use my right of free speech.. too bad for them.. Clearly just  because some thing someone writes offends someone else does not mean firstly that it is even “hate”, immediately prosecutable by law, the courts or the Human Rights Commission. There is still a separation between appropriate speech and inappropriate speech, a separation between freedom of speech, expressing one’s views, opinions and the delivered, deliberate conscious propagation of hatred towards a specific group or person.
     

     

    Sinners

    pinocchio-paradox

     One of the worst things you can do is to think that such a person, spouse, relative, family member, pastor, politician is a nice guy, OR ANY INSTITUTION, CHURCH NOW AS WELL  and so it  is worth being worshipped, praised.. well cause very shortly God will show you really what even the person now is really like, a sinner like all the rest of us.. and the political party, organization, church you worshipped..  If you also do try to maintain you are a good person now as well, God will not let that false pride stand before him as well and he will show to you and many others what you really are still are like.. For God is a jealous God and will have no false  idols NOW before him.. God says without me you can do nothing, nothing good that will last permanently, that the canker worms will next not destroy as well.. I have seen so many good guys in my life, some have been my close good friends, but real life next showed to us all what they really were like next too.. sinners.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/get-real-now/

     If we all got what we are due.. it would be Hell.
     
    (1 Ki 8:46 KJV)  If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

    (1 John 3:6 KJV)  Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
     
    (1 John 5:18 KJV)  We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
     
    (John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 16  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 15:7   If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
     
    (Prov 8:13 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy,

    (Isa 51:8 KJV)  For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.
     
    (Psa 22:6 KJV)  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
