Consider yourself lucky if you are using a computer running on a Linux operating system, because hardly anybody bothers to create malicious bits of code for it. While users of Macintosh computers are slightly more at risk, computers running on the Windows O/S face the biggest threat from viruses and their ilk. Operating systems and computer technology has moved ahead immensely since the `Brain’ virus, coded by the infamous Sabri brothers of Pakistan. During those days, when the internet had not yet made its presence felt, floppy disks were the only way this particular virus, which corrupted the root sector of hard disk drives, could spread. The threat has increased manifold over the year with hundreds of thousands of virus strains creating havoc to computers that they infect. Antivirus experts categorize most of the under the following categories:

Spacefiller: These viruses increase the file size of documents, executives, and other files without causing any risk to the files themselves. bsod-windows-8-0x5c-hal-initialization-failed-56a6f9d85f9b58b7d0e5cc3eDue to this, most antivirus software cannot recognize them, as they do not contain typical strings of code that identifies viruses. This virus quickly fills up the empty space of the affected computer’s hard disk drive, causing it to and when booted, and display the BSOD (blue screen of death) on the monitor. This is where antivirus software could have made the difference. As it monitors the HDD in real time, it would have trapped and quarantined the virus the moment it invaded the system.
Boot Sector: They are extremely dangerous as they infect the MBR (master boot record) of the HDD. The MBR is like the content page of a book and provides information about the location (sector) of programs and data. Once the MBR is corrupted, the operating system will not be able to find the location of the files. These viruses are extremely dangerous and the only way to remove them is by doing a hard format of the HDD. Prevention is always better than cure. One could have avoided this menace by installing one of the reputable AV programs.
TSR: Terminate and stay resident viruses are deadly and have the ability to alter their code and replicate themselves in various locations of the disk drive. By the time a computer security expert removes one strain, the other strain starts causing chaos. This would not have taken place had there been a proper antivirus program installed on the HDD.
Direct: Unlike TSR viruses, these malicious bits of code typically attack executive and command files, rendering them useless. They would not have dared attacked these files in the presence of a good antivirus software.

Other types of threats
Trojans: Like the historical Trojan horse, they remain dormant in the HDD, and attack the system depending on the type of trigger the coder has coded into them. A typical case is a virus that would activate on a specific month and date. This virus created havoc by deleting the data of hundreds of thousands of computers all over the world. Only individuals who had anti trojans installed on their computer escaped this deadly piece of code that bypassed most antivirus software, except a few that had extremely high-security features in them.
Keyloggers: These critters sit silently on the HDD, noting down each keystroke punched by the user, and transmit the same periodically to the developer. It is easy to understand what that developer could have done, once he had the details of the credit card of the user whose computer was infected by that malware. Excellent antivirus programs have an inbuilt virtual keyboard, which one can use to input private details by clicking the keys on the virtual keyboard with their mouse’s pointer.
CryptLock: The deadliest variant of virus in the world, which encrypts all the date contained in the HDD, and displays a message providing information where the sufferer should send a sum of cash as ransom, in order to receive a key that decrypts the encrypted data. Only one or two AV programs can allegedly tackle this threat.

Selecting the best AV software
Searching online for the best AV program will not help as all of them claim to be the best. It is better to visit websites operated by professionals who test all AV software available, test each of them on computers infected with different types of viruses, evaluate the performance of each of them using specific parameters, and upload a detailed list of the 10 best AV programs available on the market. http://best10antivirussoftware.com is one of the leading sites where you can find such information.

The Proper Way To Breakup With A Partner

If you have a partner and wish to break up with them, you can learn what to do here. There are a lot of people out there that don’t do this in the right manner. Don’t be like them and take some time to review these pieces of advice, some taken from Magic of Making Up by TW Jackson.

Picking a time to do the breaking up is very important. That’s because you don’t want to do it when something good or bad is happening to the person. You want to be direct, but if the person is dealing with something like the loss of a loved one you may want to wait until a few days after that has settled to do this. If they’re happy because of a great thing that happened, wait until they’re free and then drop it on them a few days past things like the birth of a new child.

Anyone can break up with someone through texting, but that’s probably the meanest thing you can do. You need to do this in person so that you can use your body language to talk about what happened. Not only that, but the person will feel worthless to you if you just text them or send them an email about it. Breaking up happens all the time, but you don’t want to be remembered as someone who made your partner go off the deep end because they thought they were going to be with you and got a text about how that’s not so.

The location of where you break up with your partner is very important to think about. The problem is that you don’t want to be somewhere really public to do this. You also don’t want to take them to a fancy dinner just to dump them and have them leave without eating. You need to find a place like a park or another setting where emotions can come out. They may end up getting mad, or they will be shocked and will just need to leave right away which is why you need to be somewhere that can facilitate what may go on, as seen in The Magic Of Making Up With Your Ex.

You know the person if they have been your partner for a while. That’s why you have to think of a plan that you know they would appreciate. Maybe they are someone that loves to text other people, and that’s why you may want to tell them that way. However, in general, you just want to make sure that anything associated with your partnership doesn’t get destroyed for them. For instance, if you both love a TV show, don’t tell them about breaking up while you’re enjoying it together because that would be cruel.

You don’t want to have to deal with breaking up with a partner and hurting them more than need be. That’s why it’s good to have a plan and to use this information. Once you do it’s going to be clear that your achievements with it all will work out very well.

Building A Strong Relationship

There’s a certain image of relationships and marriage in the United States, and in many other places of the world, where you find the “right one” and then everything works out perfectly. The simple truth is that relationships don’t work that way. There’s no real “the one” though there are people who are better or worse suited to be in a relationship with you.

The real truth is that relationships take time and effort if you want them to work. Building a strong relationship isn’t just a matter of finding the right person. It’s a matter of knowing how to make yourself the right person, and understanding that people aren’t always what you wanted them to be.

ourrelationshipHow do you do that? The first step is knowing precisely what you want in a relationship, but also knowing where you’re willing to give things up. You may have a mental image of the perfect partner, but no one is perfect. You’ll have to find someone who fits what you most need out of a relationship, and be willing to work with the rest.

This doesn’t mean that you can just begin dating anyone with the idea that you’ll be able to change them. People may be willing to change small things, but if there’s too big a difference between what you want, and what the person can give, then you’re really just doomed to failure. You need to know precisely, exactly what you need. Not what kind of person you want, though the two often get mixed up. You need to know what you need. Do you need someone who’s willing to show you affection on a regular basis? Do you need someone who will give you space? How do you want your partner to deal with your upset?

These are important questions that people often don’t ask themselves. They get so hung up on the idea of whether or not the person will like the same kind of entertainment, the same kind of books or the same kind of television shows that they never stop to consider the important things in a relationship. Do you need someone who can sit and listen to you talk, or are you something of a quiet introvert, and would rather be with someone who enjoys just sitting in silence with you in front of the television? How good are you at taking care of your adult responsibilities? Do you need someone who can help you with that, or are you a more nurturing type and want to have a partner that you can help with their responsibilities?

When you begin to honestly assess what you need out of a relationship, it will become much easier to build a strong one. This is because you won’t wonder why your partner can’t meet your needs. You’ll know what your needs are, and you’ll be better able to understand and meet your partner’s needs. That combination will help you build a strong relationship.
