Save Your Computer From Virus

There are many ways to save your computer from viruses and spyware. A little knowledge of software application and download and some keenness to dangers will nevertheless block impermissible visitors.

Follow these tips and you will surely get the security you deserve.

1.        Block unwanted files from the system. There is no doubt that a turned off firewall is a risky endeavor.

2.        Install antivirus programs that will remove quarantine or heal, and even delete a bad file or application. The e-mail is the most accessed entry to intruders. Antivirus programs will check the attachments before it gets downloaded by the recipient. These programs may not at all be risky since they can block viruses and other threats from entering your computer.

3.        Be careful when using passwords. Passwords are usually rated as weak, normal or strong. Obviously, the strong passwords are highly recommended. These will not be easily guessed by intruders. Moreover, passwords should be distinct from one file to another. Why is this so? Security principles will tell you that having different passwords for every file is very beneficial. Uniform passwords will allow access to all of your files. Prevent graver damage to your computer by using passwords that are distinct.

4.            You do not hold the world in your hands. You can never know what accident could happen to your computer system. Since there is no absolute security for anything, the creation of backups will secure your data further. These back ups are basically duplicates and can be used as a second copy for ruined files. If something unpleasant happens, you have something else for refuge, your back up data.

5.           Install firewall that acts as a guard against unwanted visitors. Firewalls have the ability to inhibit unlikely visitors. It will let you know which file is virus infected and what further actions should be taken.

Intruders want to enter your computer and be able to take the most advantage over your data and information. Learning how to protect your computer will always be rewarding.

Computer Safty Tips

Practicing the principles of basic computer safety is a must for everyone that dares to navigate the World Wide Web.

The Internet was a benign creature when it was created; its creators' intentions and purposes for it were good, moral and meant to benefit mankind. Today, however; the Internet is filled with dangerous and malicious threats. Whether computing from home, the office, or a public terminal at an airport, library or café, make sure that your computer and its browsing session is protected and that you follow some basic principles to safeguard yourself from danger.

A basic approach to computer safety would encompass two principles. The first would be to protect the computer itself. This can be accomplished through the use of anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall applications. The second principle would be to safeguard your own actions when using any computer; whether surfing the web, corresponding by email, shopping, paying bills, or social networking.

Some self defense measures that your computer should be armed with are:


Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware Software:

When installed on your computer, these types of programs will search your system for known viruses or spyware and either remove or disable their ability to cause harm to your equipment and software applications. The best of these programs will automatically perform scans periodically, and routinely update themselves with updated anti-virus and anti-spyware definitions to protect against new threats. The most typical viral infections are transmitted though email and will attempt to spread and replicate themselves by exploiting your email application and its contact list. Once active, their payloads can quickly consume all of your computer's resources and bring your computing experience to crashing halt. Spyware will do just as its name implies, and covertly gather and transmit information back to its creators. This information may be used to keep track of Internet statistics, but it can also be used to capture sensitive personal information such as passwords, credit and bank account numbers and email addresses.
Firewall Software:

Anytime you are on the web, your computer is both sending and receiving data. Firewall software applications are designed to protect against incoming and outgoing threats from viruses, spyware, and hackers that could potentially invade your computer and use it to attack other computers. Some Microsoft Windows operating systems have built-in firewalls. For other operating systems there are third party applications available for protection. There are a number of vendors that provide bundles of software applications that include anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall software; these software suites are probably the easiest to install and manage for less technically-savvy computer users.

Your own personal actions on the Web will help lower the threat level against you. There are some very basic do's and don'ts to follow whenever and wherever you are online.


Passwords and personal information:


Whenever you need to create and use a password, make sure it is at least six characters long, contains letters, numbers and/or symbols, and is not a word that can be found in dictionaries. Do not write your passwords down, but if you absolutely must, make sure that they are kept in a secure location, and not written on the bottom of your mouse pad or on a sticky note stuck to your computer monitor. Your own personal information should be treated with the same level of cautious awareness. Do not freely give out your name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, bank account information, social security number or date of birth. If you are shopping online, do so only from reputable companies and through their secure web sites.
Email and attachments: 

Do not under any circumstances open attachments contained in email unless you were expecting to receive them. Even if you know the individual or company that has sent them to you, but are suspicious of their true origin, contact the senders and verify that they did in fact send them to you. Some viruses and malware are extremely effective in disguising themselves to prevent you from identifying their true nature.

The World Wide Web can be a wonderful place to interact with others, learn, and do business; but it can also be a very hazardous place to those that are unaware of the potential dangers lurking there and how best to protect themselves.

Solution of Computer Speed

why is my computer running so slow? There are a number of potential reasons for this - and here are 2 of the best solutions.

SOLUTION #1) Fix the Registry

You're probably sick of hearing it-and I'm sick of saying it--but all but about 10% of PC problems can be attributed to a bad Registry. Therefore it makes sense to tackle this problem first.

Registries always start out fine. But over time simply get too big and bulky because of all the files that get put on your system.

Your registry is responsible for telling the operating system how to use every file. Therefore if there are so many files it can't even find the one it's looking for, problems are sure to arise.

But just getting rid of your unnecessary programs and files is NOT ENOUGH--it might actually make things worse.

The only solution if your Registry is at fault is to get a good registry cleaner or hire a specialist... I would suggest the former. It's far less expensive and most times just as effective.

I would STRONGLY recommend you not try to clean it yourself unless you are highly trained. If you get something wrong your whole computer might simply crash.


#2) You have too many "auto-load" programs

Let's face it-most of us have WAY too much junk on our system. If you find that your computer takes a long time to start, this very well is a by-product of simply having too many software programs installed.

No software will tell you this before downloading it, but many of them are designed to open up every time your computer does.

You might download something thinking you can use it when you want... but it's actually opening along with your system EVERY SINGLE TIME. This is eating precious space the computer needs to run properly.


How to Make Good Screen Recordings

If you are trying to create a presentation and need to show what's happening on your screen, why not capture your entire screen with complete motion and add your own voice narration? My Screen Recorder is the perfect tool for making videos of your desktop activity for demos, presentations and tutorials. It allows you to capture your desktop screen activity while you narrate and create AVI files.
There is a professional version, My Screen Recorder Pro, which offers more features for easy conversion to different file formats and additional distribution options.

With
My Screen Recorder Pro, you can save your screen recordings in the popular Macromedia Flash format for distribution on the web. To enable your viewers to see your presentations without the help of any media players or software, My Screen Recorder Pro can create executable files from your recordings. You can also distribute your screen recording in standard AVI format; or the small sized and high quality Windows Media format, perfect for distribution through email or from a Web server.
Use our comparison chart to decide which application is best for your requirements.

This article provides a step-by-step explanation of how to make a good screen recording, using My Screen Recorder, from planning to actual recording.

Planning your presentation

The first step is to have a plan for your screen recording session. To start with, you need to decide whether you want to add voice narration while recording or to record the sound played by the application.

If you're going to record a voice-over narration, it is always a good idea to have some sort of script, so that you can maintain a steady voice and pace while you record. This script can also contain a list of actions (like opening particular windows), so you don't miss recording something important. You can pause and resume the recording at anytime by using the F8 shortcut key. It is a good idea to use a friendly tone of voice, even for corporate presentations.

When you want to record the audio from the application itself, set up the audio in the following manner:

1. In My Screen Recorder, on the toolbar click on Settings and select Audio.

2. Click on the Configure button.

3. To record the application's audio, select Record from speakers. Click on Auto Select to let My Screen Recorder choose the best line for you. While using Auto Select, we recommended that you disconnect the microphone. To choose manually, select the Let me select the line option. Click OK when you have done this, and then OK again to close the Options window.

It is especially important to adjust the audio settings when you are recording media players or other interactive software.

Preparing to record

To get high quality screen recordings, you need to optimize the settings of My Screen Recorder:

1. You first need to decide what screen resolution to record at. High resolution recordings played back at lower screen resolutions result in image distortion. It is generally best to determine the lowest screen resolution that your recording will be played back at, and record at slightly less than that resolution. You can change your PC's screen resolution by right-clicking on the Windows desktop and then selecting Properties > Settings. Under the Settings tab, you can lower the resolution by moving the 'Screen resolution' slider to the left. If you want to increase the resolution, move the slider to the right.

2. The next step is to decide the recording size. If you want to capture only specific parts of your screen, click on the Region button on the tool bar, then choose either the Fixed Dimensions or Rectangle option. This reduces the file size of the recorded video.

3. My Screen Recorder records the video in AVI format, which can be edited easily. However, uncompressed AVI files are very large so your recordings need to be compressed. Go to Tools menu > Settings > Video tab and select a Compressor. (Generally the default compression settings are fine.) Frame rate and Key Frame rate values also affect the file size and can be changed. If you are using My Screen Recorder Pro, you can also convert your AVI file to Windows Media Format. Windows Media files are much smaller, and can be streamed from a specialized web server (such as Video Desk).

Frame Rate is the number of frames to record per second. You can make it higher if you want smoother playback, especially for videos containing a lot of motion. However, higher frame rates also result in bigger files.
Key Frame Rate controls how often "full frames" are stored in an AVI file. A higher key frame rate can make it easier to "seek" within a video file, but it also increases the file size. The default settings of the frame rate and the key frame rate are optimum for most types of recordings, but you may try experimenting with these settings for better results.
4. For smoother recordings, especially of applications having fast action motion or media players, disable hardware acceleration by clicking on the Performance tab in the Settings window and then checking the option "Disable hardware acceleration" during recording.
Start Recording your Screen Activity
1. In My Screen Recorder, click the Record button on the toolbar to launch the Recording Options window. Please note the keyboard shortcuts for record (F8, by default), stop (F9 by default) and cancel (F10 by default). Check the option Pause before recording starts. Uncheck the Record audio while recording video box if you don't want to record audio. Click on OK.


2. Launch the application you would like to record. To start recording, press F8 on your keyboard. Now, perform the actions you want to document. My Screen Recorder will record them in the background. To stop the recording, press the F9 key.
Adding that Professional Touch to your recordings

You can truly make your screen recordings a visual treat by editing them using Video Edit Magic. You can adjust your audio narration or add new narration to your screen recording. Title text and annotations can be placed anywhere in the video to make your recording easier to understand. Video Edit Magic can save your edited recordings in a format that best suits your distribution needs.

To edit using Video Edit Magic:
1. Launch Video Edit Magic and open a new project by clicking on New Project under the File menu (CTRL + N). Import your screen recording from your hard drive by clicking on Open File in the File Menu (CTRL + I).
2. Drag the screen recording clip from the Collections window to the Timeline.
3. If you don't want to retain the recording's original audio track, and want to add narration of your own in Video Edit Magic, then click on the audio part of the recording and press the Del key. Connect a microphone to your PC.
4. Click on Tools menu > Options > Narration. Position the Seek Slider on the Timeline where you want to start narrating and click Record. Click on Options to change the Audio Device and the Audio Compressor used for recording.

Click the Record button, and start narrating into the microphone. When you're done narrating, press Stop. You will be asked for a file name, and the narration will be saved as a file, and added to the Timeline and the Media File Collection. You can record more narration by clicking Record again. When you're finished narrating, click Close.
5. You can also add effects and transitions to your video. You may need to line up the audio and Video on the timeline to synchronize them before saving the Project.

Now, your screen recording is ready to be converted into the appropriate video format for distribution. Video Edit Magic can save these edited videos in MPEG formats (for burning to VCD and DVD), QuickTime, and many other formats.
