Browser Toolbars Yes or NO?

One of the most annoying thing I found these days browser capture by adware or toolbars, which comes mostly with freeware. It can be by trusted software or malicious as well, and the result will be unwanted homepage, shady browser windows with toolbars.
Whenever I meet my friend/relative's PC/Laptops that they complain is too slow browsing speed (even having latest higher config. Pcs) there's one thing I almost always find: several browser toolbars, mostly in Internet Explorer.
Over the period these companies also become mature and smarter, if you remember few years back when you try to install some freebie software, You must have seen these kind of pop-ups ,where the toolbar selection was optional only, but it was pretty clear to choose. Like this

Now the Scenario has been changed with different reasons behind which I don’t want to discuss here, probably on next post. Nowadays if you install like these freebies You might get pop-ups like this, where the all options are checked.
In both the situations are toolbars are OPTIONAL. But second situation is bit deceiving, specially for those who are mainly focused on NEXT Button CLICK.

And the result will be something like this.

 I know there lot of tool bars from well trusted software and which are not having any single negative points for your PC health. But still, do You really need all of this or Do you want half of your browsing screen captured by toolbars window? I know You don’t want!!. Like picture no 3’s situation. Since long time malicious toolbars for browsers, in which toolbars are implemented as Browser Helper Object, even if not all Browser Helper Object s are toolbars. Some are a problem just because a user has too many of them like above picture number 3,But browser add-ons in both browsers run in the same process as the browser itself; they have access to all the data the browser has, and instability in the add-on can make the browser unstable.
So just be careful and mindful as well for your next any installation, and if already got like this browser window, Close your Browser, Go to your Control panel, and uninstall one by one all the tool bars.

Happy surfing!

Only Anti-virus can Save You?

Most of the times I hear from my staffs and colleagues since they are using Anti-virus program, still how come they get infected with virus, and whatever I reply does not satisfy them, because  my answer is “ONLY A ANTI-VIRUS CAN NOT SAVE YOU, UNLESS YOU CARE OTHER THINGS TOO!”
(It’s as simple as you have a watch-dog at home, that doesn’t mean you can leave home alone and it will be safe because of you have a dog for security. To make more secure you need to follow more security measures)
The purpose of this article is to provide basic security practices and information to help readers secure their computers against viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, and hackers.
Guys here I am going to tell you some tips for windows O/S, I am sure if you follow them you will not need even any A/V program.
Security Requirements
1.     Keep your PC O/S always updated, always use genuine O/S.
2.     Avoid USB pen drive, U3 memory sticks are self-activating and can auto-run applications when inserted into a system.
3.     Every computer that connects to the internet in any form MUST have a personal firewall.
4.      If an email or email attachment seems suspicious, don't open it, even if your anti-virus software indicates that the message is clean. Attackers are constantly releasing new viruses, and the anti-virus software might not have the signature.
5.     Only browse the internet with a safe browser or change your browser settings to make it more secure.
6.     While installing the new program, read carefully the acceptable policy(it could work as spyware too)
7.     Keep your e-mail address confidential and NEVER post an email address in an unsecured web page on the internet. This practice reduces spam and chance of getting virus or scam emails.
8.     Beware of malicious hyperlinks. Malicious hyperlinks are web links that look like they will take you to a particular site but in reality they will take you to another site.
9.     Use windows defender. Stay away from freewares.
10. Password should be always strong, use alphanumeric words. NEVER use dictionary words.
