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.

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.

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.

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.

Symantec Threat Monitor Screensaver (2009)

It was during the heydays of Windows XP when due to present of plenty of vulnerabilities and the absence of clear cut original Windows distribution we find plenty of pirated versions of Windows during these days and that indirectly increases the use of Windows operating system as the number uno operating system.  Due to allow of pirated versions of windows and even allow of downloading of updates from other sources we do find that presence of plenty of viruses and all over internet world is full of too much of viruses.

During those times there were many antiviruses companies in existence and from among all of it Symantec the makers of Norton antivirus is very popular. It has it own set up of security vigilance and many times it uploaded antiviruses prior to the release of Microsoft. It showcase the power and the infrastructure of Norton or Symantec has. During the days of 2009, it has partnership with deep threat monitor company such as Deep Sight and it releases the screen saver of threat monitor in order to let people know what are the current trends in the world of internet about presence of viruses, malwares and so on.

During those days Symantec also opened the special web page to download screensaver for people and it was completely free and it was powered by deep sigh intelligent technology. It had also one disclaimer that the data which you see is deliberately delayed by eight to twelve hours so that the hackers should know that their viruses had been detected and security updates released by Symantec.

It was released for people to understand how much was the current threat level and let them dissect it and find out from where these viruses are reaching to them. There have been some mixed reaction to this even during those times and some of corporates on their system disable it completely through Microsoft and some individual users like it very much. Due to speed of internet connection the data updated within a specified gap and inside screensaver the time of data updates are clearly written.

There has been talk of showing the spams and phishing counts generated from the countries world wide so that people will know where the most common spammers are resides and where phishing sites were created and the list of phishing sites make them realise how important a safe browsing conditions while connecting to internet could possibly have been.

People during that times are using Windows Vista and where the use of gadgets or desktop gadgets are pretty much popular and people love to have this screens save gadgets so that even while using desktop or laptop they would see the real-time statistics so that they would always be alerted of it. In this age of fast-paced computing the real-time data that is delayed by eight to twelve hours does not have any significance but during the times of dial-up internet connectivity we could see these data have pretty much importance so much so that one cold find exact details of how much dee virus problems we are facing currently.

Theses data have pretty much significance during those days for organisations and corporates as it provides deeper integration and management of data analysis and provide the virus threats which could be imprended to organisation. During those time safe of data had always been a privilege and organisations try hard to make these data safer and more convenient to use so that they an keep sae informations of customers and make them feel secure to interact and work within their organisational standards.
