How to Repair Adobe Flash Player – Screenshots

Adobe Flash PlayerDo you watch videos online? These days, its not uncommon to get deceived into clicking a link to see some cool video that ended up prompting you to download a plugin first before you could view it. The video link could be something you received in an email, a Facebook friend, or a link you just found yourself while Googling. Whatever the case, many people are getting tricked into downloading fake Flash Players and other malicious plugins which can corrupt your Internet Browser and its plugins, not to mention causing Windows to become unstable, or worse yet … getting ripped-off online. Don’t depend solely on your virus and spyware protection software to protect you against threats you invited in yourself, even if you were deceived. When in doubt about downloading some plugin, find out what it is first, whether it is safe or not, and download it directly from the author’s official website, rather than from some pop-up window you aren’t sure about. While many missing plugin prompts are legitimate, it only takes one that isn’t legit to infect your computer.

But have you ever tried to watch some animated content on the internet such as a YouTube video and saw one of the following messages in the list below? Read More Here…

Is it Time to Upgrade to Windows 7 Yet?

Windows 7 upgradeIts been about 2 years now since Windows 7 was released. I was immediately content with Windows 7 over XP and especially Vista early on. Sure I discovered a few annoying issues, but as a tech, I was usually able to find a fix or a work around, and most of them were minor anyway. But for non-techs who don’t want to become a glorified beta-tester, this is good enough reason to wait a bit before you decide to go forward with any major Windows Update or Upgrades until the annoyance are worked out. But how do you know how long to wait? Read More Here…

Don’t Attempt a System Recovery Until You Read This First!

First I Want To Rant a Little Bit

System RecoveryI touched on the precautions about using System Recovery in my last post about Removing Malware with System Restore about 2 weeks ago. Since then, in just the last couple of days, I checked-in 4 computers that had severe Windows damage because the customer resorted to trying a System Recovery to fix their computer without learning about any prerequisites or precautions first.

How to Replace Laptop Keys

laptop-keys(Free Members Only) OK, this problem is not “directly” related to spyware prevention, but I can tell you that I have had customers bring in computers that they literally took a hammer to, because they got so mad when their computer wouldn’t work. They later lamented and wanted their data back after which I found out they were just infected. I could have removed the infection cheaper than the cost of a data recovery. Anyway, sometimes its not this extreme and you just knock off a few keycaps. Read More Here…
