Have you got a virus? Get a rescue CD.

Perhaps you think your computer has a virus.  In the virus can slow down the performance of your computer and compromise your privacy.  There are many good and anti virus programs available, many an offer free trials.  However, and they are ovens not much value if he already have a virus.  They are more effective to prevent the virus from entering.  Today there are many very clever the virus forms that will prevent you from getting an anti virus program.
So what can you do if you cannot get an anti virus program after the infection has already occurred?  In such a case, you need to have a rescue CD.  The rescue CD is used to start your computer instead of the standard operating system.  The rescue CD operates independently from your operating system and can scan your hard drive for the most common type of virus that could be interfering with your computer’s operation.  For more information about the rescue CD, you can search on local or Yahoo for the keywords “rescue CD “.
Here are some examples:
Kaspersky Rescue CD
BitDefender Rescue CD
F-Secure Rescue CD
Avira Antivir Rescue Disk
Trinity Rescue Kit CD
Aand you may find others that look interesting.  However, the list t above I have personally checked and I am sure these companies are legitimate and the they each offer a good product.  I do not receiving compensation for making this recommendation.

Perhaps you suspect your computer has a virus

Why Intel Hates Windows 8

If hate means ‘intense displeasure’, then Intel must hate the new Microsoft Windows version. Windows 8. It might seem like just another Windows Desktop program for a personal computer. But not so.  It is really different. And it will hurt Intel, the famous chip maker.
Here is the scoop on why Intel must hate the new Windows 8 system. It is about the chips. Cheap chips not from Intel.

Microsoft, the company that makes the Windows desktop operating system, has announced the new Windows 8 operating system will be coming very soon.  Even now developers can get a special version of the system for testing.

Here is the key point that you might mess.  That operating system is not really targeted for the desktop user.  In this targeted for tablet computers and smart phones.  So this means that Microsoft is now focusing on the kind of development that had started going on over at Apple Computer Co. for sometime.  As you know, Apple has a very big position in the cell phone market with its Apple iPhone.  Sales of cell phones made by Apple or others does not help the profit margins of Intel Corp..
That’s because Intel makes principally computer chips for the desktop computers that run Windows Vista and Windows 7.  The  Intel chips are often times called on Pentium or Celeron chips and they go by different code-names. But in any case, they are re too powerful and big to be used in the cell phone.
Instead, the cell phone makers he is the type of silicon chip made by a company called ARM. This type of computer brain is much smaller,  lower costs, and uses much less power compared to Intel brand chips used in desktop PCs with the current Windows operating system
The new version of Windows, simply called Windows 8, will run on the low cost ARM Arm silicon chip.  And all indications are that most consumers are going to want to buy a tablet computer or a smart phones instead investing in the desktop PC.  And what about laptops?  Many new laptops will also feature the ARM processor.  By next year almost a third of the laptop or notebook computers will be using the low-power low-cost processor.  As for smart phones, these are already using ARM in over 90 percent of the time.

Now you see the point? With people shifting over to the newer smaller to lower cost devices, Intel is going to see a big loss in revenue unless they can catch up with the trend . The trend now is to be smaller and easier and portable.  People are getting tired of electronic gadgets that are clumsy and hard to use.

Excuse me, I am getting a text message!


Speech recognition at home.

Anyone who has purchased a computer in recent years should have  found that speech recognition software is now included in current versions of Microsoft Windows.
This document is being dictated this speech recognition software that I have been using for a number of years, even before it became part of Microsoft Windows. Because of my poor vision  it is difficult for me to type fast. But I have no trouble talking, and I can talk much faster than I can type. Actually, that’s true of most people. In fact, you probably talk  three times faster than anybody can type.
Getting used to the speech recognition program may take some effort on your part. You have to learn to speak slowly, pronounce the words clearly, and you have to call for punctuation as needed.
One thing for sure, speech recognition at home is now a reality. Give it a try.
