With so many alternatives being offered with baffling technical information, you need to be sure you are protected. To help you figure out the most ideal antivirus software for your PC, here is a list of 5 easy tips you should keep in mind.

    1. Experience before You Purchase: Make sure to download a free trial version from a trusted site before purchasing anti virus software to check whether or not it manages to satisfy your needs before you make a purchase. This is the best possible way to figure out the compatibility of a software with your system.
    1. Find out its Effectiveness: In addition to protection against virus, your antivirus should be capable of safeguarding the system from spyware, malware, Trojans and worms. Be sure to investigate the features before selecting virus removal software.

HTC Dash Software Downloads

Read a post last week regarding getting pictures off of an HTC Dash.

Step 1:  Here’s what I did without the benefit of being able to use the software from HTC that came with the phone. I had problems with reading the software disc, it needed a flash-player I couldn’t get to work. Since I couldn’t get the auto-play to work I went directly to Microsoft and searched for the Active-Sync software download. Once downloaded and installed, I could sync my Dash.

Step 2:  Once the Activesync software is installed, one can now explore the drive on the Dash or find files on the external memory card if one is present.

Tip: I have had complaints from fellow Dash users saying that finding files is difficult also. I found that the file hierarchy is difficult to understand and cumbersome but not impossible. The thing that I found helpful is to simply bypass the entire hierarchy and create my own on the external memory card. That way I know exactly where I have put everything and I can find what I am looking for either by using the “explore” function provided by the Activesync software, or right on the handset by opening the storage card folder on the HTC Dash. This way my files can be managed almost like on a PC. Changing the views on the Dash could be helpful in keeping track of where things are, not to mention the default for saving documents is to the device and not to the card. That has to be changed in order to help manage things like voice notes, word docs and pictures.

How do you know which download site will deliver the best results and fit your requirements? Some people just do a search, take a punt and hope for the best! We have all done that from time to time with different things, but more often than not the purchase provides below expectations. Well not this time, I have the answer to remove any doubt about your decision to purchase a PDF software package. As I found out this was far beyond my expectations.

Simply it provides solutions to your needs and explains it all in simple English. This product was one of many recommended to me and I can now see why.

Free Software Utilities

Is it possible to get something for nothing? If so is it worth having?

Well a couple of years ago when money was tight, I asked my self the same question. We needed to make some cutbacks, so one area I looked at was how much money was being spent on computer software. There was the yearly anti virus subscription, spyware subscription as well as purchasing software that had lots of unused functions.

I then began to look at what free software was available. I found three pieces of free software that have performed well over a period of three years.

Avast antivirus

Initially I was a bit skeptical about using a free antivirus, as I had religiously stuck to a yearly subscription package. However three years on and it has dealt with everything the net threw at it. It has saved me from several Trojans, spyware plus the odd piece of malware.

The interface has recently been updated in 2010 and now is far more user friendly. Updates to the virus definitions are done daily, at least once sometimes twice when you connect to the net. When the definitions have been updated, a voice will inform you and a screen notification pops up. Another advantage is the software has a small footprint, so will not use up lots of valuable memory.

Izarc file extractor

When people send you files in email, you need to extract them. This is a great free utility and can extract virtually any file. Before Izarc we had three different extractors for different files. One to files, one for.rar files and another for.Ace files. This program now handles all of these and many more.

The setup allows the program to run with your anti virus software, so the files being extracted are scanned, for viruses and spyware. Files are easily compressed for sending to other people. These can be sent as self extracting, and are easily opened with a double click by the recipient.


When you open your email, you will probably find some spam. This piece of software works with your email program, so that you can check email before you actually receive it. When checking your mail first with Mailwasher, you can choose to delete an email, or bounce an email back to the sender from your server. Bouncing an email back, says to the sender that the address they sent it too is not valid. I found this actually stopped spam, which is a major advantage over some programs, which just catch spam.
