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 browsertoolbars, mostly in Internet Explorer.
Over the period these companies also become mature and smarter, if you
rememberfew 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.
Panda isn't just another update to the search algorithm, many of which we have seen over the years. One of the special things about Panda is that it uses human reviewers to rate sites.The impact of these updates is measurable on individual websites simply through analysis of web traffic. In simple words Google does not bother what you say about your website, But it considers more what others say about your website.
How to neutralize Panda
·Clean Your WHOLE Site
· Panda Likes New Content
·No tattered Content
·Too Many Outbound Links with Keywords
·Build your brand awareness across the web wherever you can.
· Promote your content on social media including Twitter and Facebook.
·Edit any ‘over-optimized’ pages.
· Find the pages and page types hit worst on your site.
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)

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.
1.Keep your PC O/S always updated, always use
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)

post an email address in an unsecured web page on the internet. This practice
reduces spam and chance of getting virus or scam emails.

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.

alphanumeric words. NEVER use dictionary words.
