Microsoft Fix it. Even Improve performance, safety and security in Internet Explorer

 
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!

Improve performance, safety and security in Internet Explorer.   Automatically diagnose issues that may reduce safety in Internet Explorer or cause Internet Explorer to respond slowly or crash.

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 . MS does not like you to make changes to their operating  system now too.

Straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth

Like I have too often still said
 
Vigilance, continual Vigilance is need in all areas of life it seems cause otherwise our rights are abused, overlooked, falsely censored even. Such as the ISP, Internet service providers  obligations to their customers, contractual agreements, On top of that there is no question that many major Internet corporations profit have also  been built on the back of free labor, the free contributors. Which they tend to no longer appreciated and restrict falsely access to many of these sites now instead. Ever discover that while the main search engines will readily give you a list of sites, that you may next have difficulties accessing many of these sites next ands why is that? The access and the speed aren’t too bad but still only during  certain, limited  portions of day  or night.  Such internet  traffic management is really really unacceptable. For if they were to invest in newer, better infrastructure to raise capacity, they would even get more customers. It’s much, much cheaper to throttle torrent traffic or do nothing than it is to expand the overused, obsolete infrastructure.  If even Microsoft,  corporations, companies & governments are distributing more and more  content through the internet then all of the ISPs have to keep up to date and increase their capacity in response. Other countries are embracing this, and have brighter economic futures & control, profitability, consumer satisfactions  as well.
 

72 percent of businesses say they would change ISP if their Internet connection became unreliable. The independent research carried out by Shape the Future Limited on behalf of Zen Internet, the award winning ISP, surveyed over a 1,000 Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) between September and October. 

An important decisive factor for SMEs is the level of support provided by ISPs: 85 percent stated that the level of support was the most important criteria when choosing an ISP while the highest number of respondents, 80 per cent, considers UK based support to be very important. Some ISP providers have been criticised for taking telephone support overseas and cutting staffing costs.

Just over half of those asked, 55 per cent were happy with their current supplier and were unlikely to change, 45 percent are unhappy. and 68 per cent had not changed ISP in the last year but   13 per cent are considering changing ISP at present.  When they do, it’s mainly when there are issues with reliability, quality of service, cost or for higher speeds. It was found that 72 per cent of SMEs said they would change provider because of unreliable connection, but note only 40 per cent would change to save money.

98 per cent of SMEs consider reliable Internet access to be critical to the needs of their business. 71 per cent of SMEs thought it was important that their ISP was business orientated, as 80 per cent use the Web to locate suppliers and 76 per cent use it for purchasing activities.

Deceptive, unfair, restrictive Business trade practices by the ISP’s.
 
“A lawsuit filed against Apple and AT&T on November 4, 2008 charging misrepresentation of the 3G speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s network, has also been amended with an additional charge. The new charge claims the iPhone develops hairline cracks in the housing. Filed in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, Avi Koschitzki claims in the amended charge that hairline cracks in the casing of the iPhone constitute unfair practices under the New York Deceptive Practices Act. Koschitzki said the cracks appear around the camera and near the volume button on the side of the iPhone.
 
The initial lawsuit claims that Apple and AT&T misrepresented the speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s 3G network. The suit claims insufficient infrastructure of the network and the fact that so many phones have been sold that it can’t handle the volume of phones trying to use it. “Due to the overloaded 3G network, it is quite common for iPhone users to only be on the 3G network for a few minutes before being bumped to the slower EDGE network despite being in geographical areas allegedly rich with 3G network coverage,” reads the lawsuit.
 
Now we all can know that driving a sports car on an empty road produces a different sped from that when driving on the same road during peak traffic hours.
 
Now this Mis-advertisement of the actual speeds attained  also reflects the common  problem we tend to  have also in Canada with the false, misleading advertising, trade practices by Bell, Rogers, Videotron in regard to the speeds of their iphone and DSL, ADSL, cable internet services. These Communication, ISP firms amongst others are known to inflate, advertise substantially higher speeds than the consumer will actual get next get on the average, and the  next related internet congestion cause web connectivity problems, and also reductions of the downloads speeds too..
 
Now what about having now the much need real consumer protections for the citizens of Canada here as well from the greedy, lying, no good corporations?
 

The lawsuit is seeking a jury trial where they are asking for statutory, compensatory and punitive damages.” 

Time for just more of our complaining, talking  over and over again is done, rather real actions is required now even by the governments to protect the consumers.

PS:The latest version of Java (Java 6 update 10) is a seriously flawed version of Java which causes numerous display and performance problems, some of which you may encounter

The only recommended way to resolve this problem is to temporarily revert to Java 6 update 7 until Sun Microsystems fix their problems. To do so you will need to uninstall Java 6 update 10 and then install update 7.

Please note that in the past older versions of Sun JAVA have been full of serious security flaws and I strongly recommend UNINSTALLING ALL PRIOR versions of SunJava thru add/Remove as well as OLD install folders PRIOR to this updated version – JUST AS A PRECAUTION –

UNLESS all the older versions are removed THERE STILL REMAINS THIS RISK.  The update doesn’t uninstall any old versions. You HAVE to go to the Control Panel and look in Add/remove programs and uninstall each one …keeping the latest, of course.

To uninstall update 10, open ‘Add/Remove Programs‘ in Control Panel (in Windows Vista this is called ‘Programs and Features‘) and remove the ‘Java(TM) 6 update 10‘ item.

Then install Update 7 from the links below.

 I too have discovered often that while I personally do also have many blogs, internet sites, next my own accessibility to these sites is it seems unnecessary  restricted, difficult, and one of the main valid explanations as many of us already do know is the false periodic unacceptable capping, throttling, access restrictions,   by the ISP, internet Service Suppliers themselves. I too now do  have no sympathy for almost any of  ISPs. They firstly do still to often lie lie to get customers and next when they get them they cannot honor, keep their original promises, promised speeds and capacities  It’s one thing to gouge us all with continual increase rates but not to keep also same promised original service. No, no, no. ISPs are not only raising their rates but still also decreasing their services and the quality of it as well.
