It would be a gross understatement to say that the Microsoft operating systems are trouble free, for  we all often experience DVD problems, internet explorer problems, etc
 
and MS helps does not come that freely, for even their great effective free  software solution have MS bias as well. MS does not like you to make changes to their operating  system now too. Nevertheless these are good tools!

  • Phishing filter is turned off. Turns the phishing filter on.
  • Pop-up blocker is turned off. Turns the Pop-up blocker on to block pop-ups.
  • Security settings are not set to recommended settings. Resets security to recommended settings.

One of the most common causes for a misbehaving PC is malware—viruses and other malicious apps that spy on you and slow down your computer. Unfortunately, no single app can find 100 percent of malware, so we recommend keeping at least these three cleaning programs in your toolkit.
Run Malwarebytes’ (http://bit.ly/BjJJ) and SuperAntiSpyware (http://bit.ly/23MxVo) first, and then Combofix (http://bit.ly/mJgzK) if the problem
persists.  MAXIMUMPC | OCT 2010 | www.maximumpc.com

Computer users have become a cash cow for many

 
   

It seems everyone is trying to make a big profit from the computer users, including computer manufacturers, computer, magazines  telecommunication companies, Internet services providers, even software sellers and pornographers,  hackers too.
 
In Canada  Bell’s Consumer complaints , abuses and their increase was so predictable because Canada’s too often major telecommunications companies, the 3 Stooges, they  have not changed nor their abusive behaviors Bell included now. Bell (TSX:BCE), Telus (TSX:T) and Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) “lead the ladder in terms of complaints”. In total 3,747 complaints were  received in the 2009-2010 monitoring period, up from those in 2008-2009.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/15/about-time-big-3-put-into-their-place-bell-rogers-and-telus/
 
After going through what seems to have been several years without getting hit with a serious virus, this weekend I got nailed with a killer. It was one of those extremely annoying trojan viruses that digs it’s way into your system and causing some serious damage along the way. The fun worst part about this virus was how it would instantly activate itself upon windows starting up, then to make matters worse, it would instantly close out any applications you tried to open and wiped out internet access all together.  The main goal of the virus was to not only infect your computer, but also to make money in the process. On the flip side, there are tons of web sites cashing in on anti virus software without being bastards and having to infect computers with a virus to make their living. Web sites dedicated to providing information on how to remove these viruses are also cashing in. 
 
ORGANISED crime online has become rife over the last few years with more and more computer and Internet users falling victim to phishing and different forms of viruses and spyware.   we are now entering a new era where viruses are being deliberately developed and spread for potential profit – huge profit. Antivirus software is becoming big business, not only because new viruses are constantly being created or ‘improved’ that can bypass existing antivirus software, but also because people are living in fear of getting a nasty infection and losing all their valuable data. Many people are also even  scammed into purchasing antivirus or anti-spyware software by being made to believe that their pc is infected. There are many ways that any computer connected to the Internet can become infected or accessed by viruses and spyware. http://witnessthis.wordpress.com/2010/11/02/viruses-and-why-they%e2%80%99re-so-profitable/  
 

The average, Illiterate computer users are taking a great risk  

 
 
Which reminds me my Bell internet services is still disastrous, unreliable, I have connectivity problems even as of lately periodically when I have no downloads even, I have email sending problems as well.. and what Bell does not know how to fix this still and it wants more money? dream on..
 

It would be a gross understatement to say that the Microsoft operating systems are trouble free. for  we all often experience DVD problems, internet explorer problems, etc and MS helps does not come that freely, for even their great effective free    software solution have MS bias as well .
