Bitdefender 60-Second Virus Scanner–Fast & Free Desktop App

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Here’s a great little app to do a very fast (less than 60 seconds on my own computer) virus scan and check-up. It found noth9ing on my computer, but since I had disabled my normal anti-virus it told me I should get Virus and anti-spyware protection. It gave the all clear when I re-ran it with my normal anti-virus enabled. Check it out at “Bitdefender 60-Second Virus Scanner – Fast and Free Desktop App.”

Should I Remove It?

Friday, March 15th, 2013

This program I just learned about looks useful to anyone that wants to clean up their computer, whether it’s new or old. It rates the programs on your computer and gives you a rating based on what other people have done with each of your programs. It leaves it up to you to decide what to keep or remove.

Uninstall That Antivirus Software!

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

  Yes, sometimes you need to uninstall Antivirus software. Usually because it hasn’t worked and you have a virus anyway, or because the antivirus itself is preventing you from accessing the internet, or from doing omething else you should be able to do with your computer. This site I am passing on today is most definitely the ultimate list of uninstallers. It even includes uninstallers for things other than Antivirus software. Check it out at http://uninstallers.blogspot.com/ .

Cyber Monday, and a couple of useful tools.

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

I have a couple of online deals that will be available tomorrow. First one is a thumb drive for under $15.00. It’s a Maxell® USB 360° Flash Drive, 8GB and only $12.99 at OfficeDepot.com. Valid 11.29.2010 only.

Next deal I have is a laptop. The specifications are excellent for the money. Save $220 on a HP G62-337NR Laptop Computer With 15.6″ LED-Backlit Screen & Intel® Pentium® P6100 Dual-Core Processor and buy for $379.99 at OfficeDepot.com. Valid 11.29.2010 only. LED-Backlit, Intel, only $380.00!  Very Nice. Hp’s website states the processor is a 2 Ghz cpu and this model comes with 4 GB of memory, expandable to 8GB.

If you set up your wireless network a long time ago, or maybe your memory is as bad as mine, you might have forgotten your wireless network key. Since your laptop only needed you to enter it once, it’s common to forget it. The answer to the problem is WirelessKeyView, snd it will show you the password you have stored on your network for all the wireless networks you’ve had to add passwords for. Check it out at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html.

If you want to reinstall your operating system fresh on an old PC, because it’s slow, or has gotten infected by malware, or for whatever reason, this next tool will help. DoubleDriver allows you to view all your driversand then lets you backup, restore, save and print the drivers you choose. Check it out at http://boozet.org/dd.htm .
