“Before a virus can be removed from your system, it must be found, identified, and added to each antivirus companies definitions list. Only then can your antivirus detect infections.” Until your antivirus products adds an infection to their list, you are helpless to remove it. Because of this we developed SuperShield. SuperShield stops all executable files (.exe) from running on your system unless you add them to your “safe” list.

Windows8-The Last Nail

Knowing that Nothing is forever, I’ve always wondered when we’d see the fall of Windows. Unfortunately, I think we are seeing that happen now.


In the past two years we’ve seen mobility reshape the form of computing. Cell phones have become mini computers and tablets have become the fastest growing form factor of computing today.

Pushers Foisting on Every Corner

Foistware– I know you’re familiar with it. Most of the time it is served up as a small check box that is already checked. The purveyors of this crap are hoping you click so fast that you don’t notice their presumptuous check mark . Sure it’s legal, but it’s irritating, it’s a pain, it’s annoying. It’s just one more example of someone trying to force things on us that we don’t want. Like ordering a cheeseburger and getting a fish sandwich.

My Absolute All Time Favorite FREE Software

My favorite FREE software has been the same for 10 years running. I’m talking about the FREE OVERDRIVE SCAN from PC Pitstop. I’ve been using this for the entire time that I’ve had computers and still use it to this day. When it comes to diagnostics, it is absolutely the best.


My very first computer was tested and tweaked with what was called The Free Pit Test. In 2000 we would compete to see who could get the best scores. We eventually graduated to other benchmarks from the likes of PassMark and FutureMark, but in the beginning THE PIT TEST was the bomb.

The figures vary depending on who you’re quoting but I’m comfortable with sayng that at this moment 50% of the computers in the US are infected with some form of malware.Save your skin. Look before you click.

Microsoft is the Bad Guy?

You buy a PC. There is crapware all over it. Unwanted trial programs slow your brand new system to a crawl. We’re talking about the programs installed by the OEMs, you know, HP, Sony, Dell, those guys. The programs we’re talking about are the trial office and antivirus, games and photo albums. You name it and it’s there. You don’t need it and you shouldn’t want it.

The Best Free Media Player

One of the best things about computing and the Internet is Free Software. VLC Media Player is an open source, cross platform FREE media player. that is better than the paid options.

Services That Can Kill Your PC


Services allow a lot of good things to happen on your system, but Rogue Services can kill your system. Rogue services come into your system under the guise of being something else.
