Kaspersky Security Cloud Free Review

Windows 7 is coming to an end. This means Microsoft Security Essentials the Windows version of Windows 7 also coming to an end. This means I have to find out another alternative to it so that my Windows 7 computer remains intact with security. As I have no plan to update to Windows 8 for the coming year. So, my search for a new free antivirus that is going to supplement the works of Microsoft security Essentials begins.

Before searching for alternative free antivirus there are some precondition to it as that must be full flow antivirus and should be not so intrusive like Microsoft Security essentials. I found the Kaspersky security cloud is one of the best option to start. It comes up with almost full security versions like that of paid antivirus and it has also cloud on access protection and from my experience it does not slows down connection speed at all.

A separate download is needed in order to keep your password safe. It cleans up all the other add ons of internet explorer and for this computer restart is required. It updates automatically when computer connects to internet. It has also VPN service to send and receive data securely but the amount of VPN is very low amount you can browse for some safe work. I found this antivirus is lighter than windows security Essentials.

It does not bother you at all though from time to time some updated news comes but that stays in one app and if you want you can open it as per your wish. It updates automatically whenever new virus definition arrives and this means your device is protected against all invasions. In its dashboard it comes up with scan, database update, password manager requires another download, mobile protection and secure connection.

If you want to hide your network activities and want to become less visible online then use free VPN in order to speed up web browsing process. After downloading free cloud antivirus you need to register it for free and then you can run scan as there are full scan, quick scan, selective scan and external device scan option is there as it scans computer for viruses and other malicious software and it is recommended to run the scan after first installation and first update of antivirus software. You can schedule scan by going to scan schedule so that schedule scan at specific time.

It protects you from file antivirus such as it scans all files that are opened, saved and run during normal computing environment. It scans web antivirus as it scans incoming web traffic and prevents dangerous malicious scripts from running into your computer. It protects computer against dangerous network attack and network activity and attacks to kernel of operating system.

It watches system files and protect them from ransomware and crypto blockers and if that attack happens then it rolls back system to good state to remove those completely. It scans default mail systems and scans incoming and outgoing messages from mail client and stops them. It scans for instant messaging client and stops malicious and phishing attacks.

If your laptop is in battery state then it disable scheduled scanning task to preserve battery. It also go to gaming mode when you play game with computer and in this way, notifications are suppressed to provide a decent gaming environment for you. The core security functions of this antivirus is released early during computer start up of operating system so that it provides a balanced and sound performance without any delay and abruptions.

In this way, it prevents infections during starting of operating system. When RAM and CPU usages are on high then it stops computer scans in order to run computer in decent speed. It stops rootkits from installing into system by searching for traces of malicious programs in the operating system files.

It scans for weak settings of operating system and then it strengthens it in order to run operating system securely and with fast connectivity. It provides option to run on-screen keyboard in order to stop keyloggers from stealing yours personal and privacy data.
It has a self-defense functionality so that no other malware can disable this protection and can stop attempts to modify or delete kaspersky Security Cloud files, memory processes and its system registry settings. In its network monitoring it safeguard internet traffic processing and stops malicious scripts from injecting scripts into web traffic to interact with website pages.
It monitor ports so that no other network ports remain vulnerable for hackers.

It monitors all network ports so that no port remain vulnerable to hackers. It scans for some encrypted connections so that whether any false network certificate is there or not. By default it block connections over SSL 2.0 protocol as it can defect data transfer security and make your computer vulnerable to data security. It add add on to chrome to scan for search traffic and which website is good then it shows the green icon so that genuine links can be found easily. It secures traffic of Mozila Firefox and its Thunderbird mail program by securing it through its settings.

In the notification settings you can disable notifications such as on-screen notifications, audio notifications, news notifications, promotional materials so that you will not be disturbed by notification. Over all Kaspersky Security Cloud Free is a full potential security suit to provide absolute level of security to your computer. It can be used as an alternative to Windows Security Essential when the support of Windows 7 ends.

Best free Anti-Malware for Android

As an android user, time to time there is genuine after thought of installing anti-malware inside mobile operating system. As in most cases, we have seen, the software installs it has been similar to Windows and due to ever increasing performance and acceptability among all many, there are many viruses as we know it is directly proportional to the popularity of operating system. You need a must have anti malware for your mobile OS, so that, in case any vulnerability in terms of securing your system, it will work as a complete defender. When using it on a mobile device, I would like to prefer an anti malware, which has relatively low impact on the phone, friendly to RAM and should have a strong protection in terms of stopping of malwares.

One such free anti-malware for your mobile phone is TrustGo Antivirus & Mobile Security, which works seamlessly with your mobile device. After installation it will ask to create a TrustGo account, it is not compulsory but it is very well recommended, as it will back up your contact, sms and call logs into its online account, and you do not have to worry about your contact list when you change your device. There are three dots at the upper right hand side, known as action bar menu point and tap those points, from there you can restrict and control all security scanners easily. For system manager, you have the option to restrict mobile data usage limit, though it is not mandatory, as Android Jelly Bean setting, in built control of data maintenance is already there.

Enable secure web browsing on the dash board by sliding the button and it will stop some adds that are being shown on the games after the game finished, its secure web browsing is stopping all ads except from Google, and if you want to stop Google, there is one setting inside Android Jelly bean there, is one setting inside Google, where you can disable advertisement suggestions from Google. The data backup function is for contacts, calls and messages, all there are backed up within seconds to a secure trusted cloud server, the user can access these while surfing on a browser by logging into website with the same user name and password and with it the user can install the contact into some other Android device in order to have a seamless integration of contacts.

Though if you have Samsung smart phone along with Android, then while creating contact, you will be asked to open a Samsung account which will make it always on cloud service and when you want to transfer yours contact to some other Samsung android mobile, then you simply have to configure that phone with your Samsung account and automatically, all the contacts transferred to your new phone.

So far two conveniences with TrustGo mobile are already installed with Android Jelly Bean, but here you can control the mobile operation and all the personal configuration can be configured easily. This app can identify, eliminate and protect your device from unspecified security vulnerabilities that can impact on your system. The system manager, cloud protection and device manager helps you track your system when it is lost or stolen. From a distance, you can identify the location of your mobile device.

The principal user interface of application has two tabs one is for: security and app manager. It will scan your device of all the apps installed and then if it finds anything, it will as for clean up, it is a completely seamless integration and the anti-malware works in the background and consistently protecting your device from alien threats. From system manager, you can monitor your device, measure data connection and can limit it and RAM clean up for faster system.

Here, RAM tidy up is available in Android Jelly Bean, so it is not a new function. The second tab on the dashboard is application manager, it has two sub segment namely: My apps, and Hot apps, and in My apps, you will have the listings of all the application installed on your system, in Hot apps, there are links to third party applications suggested by TrustGo. Perhaps it is the revenue generation mode of this free anti malware application. From My apps, you can uninstall anything if you feel that some apps are interfering with your privacy or sending anonymous usage stats outside.

The device protection feature can block anonymous user, or if your mobile is stolen the to disable or uninstall it easily, as it will ask the user for a password, of yours TrustGo mobile in order to have a clean uninstall from it. The lock, alarm and wipe command works flawlessly, but you can completely disable your device from web interface, but it appears after it finds the true location of phone, as we know it will take time to find the location of phone due to GPS and other forms of location methodology. If your device has the front camera, then it will take the snap shot of the thief and send it to an online account, and with this, the tracking of your phone, and catching of thieves, becomes easier.

Its security apps finder engine suggests and shows which apps are safe and this delightful white list apps lists the entire application protection becomes easier. It’s constantly updated cloud service is very fast to catch up all the threats that are lurking in and around the web. This anti-malware is light on resources and does not hug RAM, as while idle it will take approximately 4MB RAM while, on us it will take maximum 12 MB of RAM. It is brilliant for the users who have lesser RAM on their device and also if you have high end smart phone then also a lower RAM conducive anti-malware is always preferable.

TrustGo mobile security runs as a standalone program in the mobile operating system, in Android Jelly Bean it stays at the notification bar all the time, signifying that it is always running in the background. It is a totally free device protection. Its candid camera feature take screen shot of thieves who happen to steal your device, it takes a screen shot of the thief and sends it to your email and by utilizing this investigating officer can trace the person and your mobile. Earlier, location tracking of Android devices took time, but now with the introduction of Google’s own location tracking. Now it is easier and finer to track the location easy as it is now inbuilt within yours android device.

On the whole, anti malware inside smart phone and mobile operating system is a recent phenomena due to advent of modern smart phones, with the operations almost similar to that of computers, and for this there are every chances of malwares crippling into yours phone and making it sluggish in performance and increase waiting time. Google Play is the source of further application installation and Google has disabled by default of application installation from other sources like that of Samsung apps if you have a Samsung mobile.

Though one can reactivate this by going to: setting and the security but it is not always working due to security implemented from Google from Android, as we can see that Google has restricted applications in its application store and now it is controlling the installation and if any malware infected application there inside the Google Play store then it can ban the publisher and immediately clean all the vulnerabilities.

With due course of time Google is going towards the way of Microsoft of creating its own anti malwares like Windows Defender in Windows 8, though Google has not done that but it is controlling malwares through applications and I would suggest you should not root the device as Google will protect it all it can through its security manner and who else know better about internet than the giant of internet Google. You can download TrustGo anti-malware from Google Play store for free!

Why make Mobile App?

In this article I shall write about how to create and develop a successful app. A successful app means that app which proves good for monetisation. Which incurs heavy profits for developer. In the coming up series of article hopefully I shall write about the skills and techniques associated with for productio and development of a detailed app with its database management so that not only you gain assess to monetisation of your app but also you can build upon alternative career with it.

When you run and develop app in play store and finds it well equipped for monetisation then you can go for professional app development. It can make your career to reach towards ultra level heights so that you can rebuild it. There is no age limit and no educational barriers for this in order to understand and learn how apps works and how to create a good app from this.

How to Create a Successful App?

Mobile app can be that of android or for iOS and the process of development constitutes of idea, prototype, design, develop and launch of app in play store. These are the steps for development of app. When you have an idea of building some thing or that of building an app then firt thing comes to the mind is that whether you wants to make it up for wallpapers or for database or for gaming. It contains design and programming.

Mobile app development is not all about coding but the lements that is associated with it is the desing of the mobile apps as the concept or design is prime importance on design and it is the focus towards it and it is important to understand this in order to develop mobile app development. Draw how should app looks like and you can take inspiration from other apps or you can solely create the design of your app and think what should have been the prime focus and importance attached with it so that you do not have to be confused while entering into coding stages.

Then ask yourself how much code language do you know if you know it then it is good and if you have no knowledge still you can create mobile app as you do not have to worry about it at all.As per esitamtes and the amount of langauge use we have seen the presence of Python in data language setting is on the higher side as it is the ost easier form of code language and java is difficult but still it is popular and it is one of oldest language form to stay so we should also build some app with it.

What ever be you should be using java from time to time in the cases of mobile app development. Coding of mobile app development is one side but it is not all of the mobile app, as design and development and distribution are the vital part of mobile app development and coding is the back end process which you will do to connect all o these. Most of people think mobile app development is all about coding and coding but it is not that true.

App Development Options:

After development of apps the next is to publish apps those on play stores. There are two types of app one is that of native apps and their other is that of hybrid apps. Native apps can only run with specific platforms such as Apple-iOS or Android. Hybrid apps works in both. Native apps provide platforms for hybrid apps to work. In order to publish your app in Google Play Store or Apple iOS you have four options and four steps to go on.

First is the developer license, publishing procedure, guidelines for description and device availability. Here we will learn more towards Android developer options though in the process you can learn to develop hybrid app so that it can work on both playstore that of android and Apple-iOS. Developer license is 99$ a year and it is renewable in each year. You can upload as many apps as you could with this sum of money. It is important for you to understand that when you become an experience developer then you can release the app in Apple iOS system so that it will not hurt you financially.

For Google Play Store it is one time fee of 25$ and you do not have to pay fee again and you can upload as many apps as you can with this sum and it is one time membership fee for you and for this it is important for first time developer should concentrate on developing apps for android platform so that you will not be facing any sudden financial loss with it. Then comes the process of publishing process and this is known as uploading of app to play store or Apple store. Apple provides the review process for each and every apps and it is from three days to two to three weeks but in most cases within one week you will find the response of it.

The review process or the publishing process in Apple play store is very stringent and it can deny permission for publishing based on the siilarity of app, not so unique app and so on so it is important for develoepr to understand that when you develop an app the first point is to publish within android play store as there is no review process with it so you can publish app fter obtaining developer license. In the play store there is no review process as after uplaoding app your app is published within 24 hours and then it is open for monetisation as with due course of time you caan go for word of mouth or for advertisement to obtain the specific app populairty and with due course of timeit comes to the stage of moentisation.

Both Apple and Android play store have very rigid and strong guidelines for publishing of app into their store. Android has the detailed instructions in PDF formats. For android no backbone of dashboard of coding required as it is flexible but for iOS the backbone of coding required as it is not open source. Android goes on with material designing for its guidelines for designing and for iOS the designs aesthetics and function. Apple does not provide detailed designing guidelines so it means it provides wider specifications but do concentrate that its review process is very stringent and for this it is important to go with the specific designing principle Apple has.

In the case of design availability which is the device in which your app is going to run then Apple has two types of device Apple iPhone and iPad but in the case with android it has so far more than 24000 different devices and still counting and increasing. This means you have to code app considering the compatibility with so many devices but alternatively with Apple it is not so as you oly have to work with two devices for device availability of your android device. Making app for two devices and making app for almost 24000 devices in terms of screen sizes, resolutions is far more difficult and that show the presence of development of responsive designing for android which makes apps to work in faster and more convenient way.

How to Fix Audio or Sound Problems in Windows 7, 8,10

Of late some of Chinese Manufacturers does provide some good amount of hardwares such as Lenovo mobiles and computers and Xiaomi phones which provide good amount of performance with very satisfiable sound output. Lenovo smart phones provide dolby digital sound systems but after some use we find it one of difficult part to fix the audio problems where we do find that the fixing of problems can be very useful.

There are so may common problems of lenovo laptops and mobiles sound output problems but first we do check out, to see most commonly used parameters to check out whether this is working out in solving sound output problems. In the lenovo laptop audio setting right click on the sound icon inside taskbar and then select playback devices and then select mixer  and then enable it all. Then try running the sound in laptop and if problem still persists then move to the next step to rectify it.

If that is not working then it is time to uninstall sound driver and run Microsoft’s default sound driver to run with it so that it can run sound output absolutely correct. Go to device manager and then go to sound, video and game controller and then right click on it, and right click on the sound driver and then uninstall it. Do not disable it, but uninstall it.

Then, tick on delete the driver software for this device and click on ok button to delete the software completely, and also delete the residual files from there. You may need to restart the device to finish the installation complete. After this try running multimedia files and see how the sound output is and if in this second step still audio output is not working then move to the third step.

If that step is not working then go to the similar steps as described in step two and then instead of uninstallation move to update driver software instead of uninstallation and then update driver software, and it is important to connect to internet and then update driver software. Update file size can be of more than 200 to 400mb and for this high speed internet Wait for the update to occur as it is coming from authentic sources as it is coming from device manager which means that it is authenticated from Microsoft before the update is downloading into computer.

After the installation of updated audio driver software still the problem persists about sound output then it is important to look for, the next step so that another rectification of sound output can be managed with.

Sound

Now, it is the time to change default sound format. Go directly to the taskbar and then right click on playback devices and then select playback devices and then you will find the option of where you need to select playback devices and it is mostly one off native playback option and another can be that of the audio driver installed and you can select either of the two one by one and see how the sound output is working with and on which set up such as select the playback device and run with it.

I do hope that after all of these above steps this would find you to the stage of running the sound output and it might correct sound driver and if that does not suffice to work with it then one final step can be tried before you take your laptop into lenovo show room for its repair.

The last step you might try as it can be so so between geek and layman perspective and run for services.msc and then click services. It will show the list of services that your computer is capable of running and it can be done with it. Go to Windows Audio service and click on it, first in the status type disabled it and then click apply. Then click on it again and in the startup type make it automatic so that audio service restart by itself and if there can be any difficulties in running in the current state of windows then this method can get rid of it and make it running to the default state again.

These are all forms of suggestion as these are not specific to the Lenovo computers only as it can be with other computers and if you had audio problems with it then you can use it with yours own discretion or with relatives who knew computers better before taking your computer to its repair shop. You might save money with it or if you are website designed or computer maintenance programmer or expert then you can check all of these steps before opening your computer.
