Know if your PC is infected with Viruses, Trojans or other Malware

October 18th, 2018 | Posted in Computers, Malware, Uncategorized

The reason why most computer malware are so deadly is because many users fail to recognize whether they have been infected or not. Had they detected the infection at an earlier stage, the damage caused could have been greatly reduced. As each virus is programmed differently, it becomes difficult to identify a virus outbreak. However, there are some general symptoms that make it easy to detect an infected computer. Here are some of them:-

1) Programs won’t start or crash suddenly: If some system programs like the task manager or registry editor have suddenly stopped working or crash randomly without any visible reason, it is more than likely that your computer has got some form of worm that is attaching itself to various programs and thus, corrupting their code. A virus modifying registry entries to prevent these programs from running could also cause this.

2) Unusual Network Traffic: If even after closing your browser and other applications that may use the internet, you see that your computer is still downloading or uploading anything, then your computer is possibly infected with some form of spyware that is either downloading other viruses to your computer or is uploading your private information to a remote computer. In case you use a wifi connection, it is also possible that your neighbors are using your network. If that indeed is the case, you need to make sure that wireless network is properly secured.

3) Internet Connection not available or is slow: If suddenly, your internet connection has stopped working or has become extermely slow, it is possible that a malware is the cause. However, problems with your internet service provider could also be the cause of such issues.

4) Annoying Popups or Redirection to Strange Websites: If there has been an increase in the number of annoying popups while browsing the internet or your web browser redirects you to a different website from the one you wanted to visit, a virus or adware might be the cause.

5) Computer won’t boot: If your computer has suddenly stopped booting, it is possible that some malware has modified your computer’s system files. In such a situation, re-installing or repairing your operating system might be the only solution.

6) Slow Computer: Some viruses are designed specifically for this purpose. Malware programmers achieve this by designing viruses that increase your CPU’s usage level to 100%. If on running the Task Manager, you find that your CPU’s usage is constantly at 100% level, a malware might be the cause.

7) Programs start automatically: Some viruses and adware automatically start strange programs on your computer in order to show unwanted advertisements or simply to frustrate users.

8) Unusual File Associations: Some viruses change .exe or other file associations which prevents these files from opening. Some viruses also do this to automatically start themselves when a file of a particular type is started.

9) Security Software Disabled: Most malware disable antiviruses and firewalls to prevent themselves from being detected. If only a single software stops working, it might be a specific software failure issue. If it is a general trend and almost every security software is facing this issue, a virus infection is most likely.

10) Weird Behaviour: If your computer automatically starts sending emails or opens strange applications randomly or does things different from its “normal” behaviour, your computer is most likely compromised by malware.

Most malware infections can however be avoided by using a powerful antivirus software and following some best security practices.

FMTC Rolls Out a Much-Needed Data Feed Cleanup Tool

September 10th, 2018 | Posted in Computers, Database

The number of educational resources available is amazing! These online tools are convenient, accessible and innovative – getting further help with your education has never been so easy. Transform and explore your educational pursuit with these options and more! From finding a tutor to grammar checker-upper, ShareASale Merchants have it all!

Data feed — a file (.CSV, .XML, .XLS or any other type) that lists a merchant’s
product information which merchants provide to affiliates enabling them to feature the merchant’s products right on affiliate-built websites [more here].

Cleanup — the act or process of cleaning up [source].

Unclean data feeds have been an ongoing problem. Once exported from merchants’ databases they would often have unnecessary data migrate through. From HTML code to special characters (like & ampersands and ” or ‘ quotation marks), and from whitespace to other things… they would frequently contain data that would make them difficult for affiliates to work with. The less savvy affiliates would consequently just skip merchants with poor data feeds and move on to working with the advertisers that provided clean ones instead.

Beforehand, to make unclean data feeds usable, good affiliate managers would work with coders (in-house or outsourced) to write scripts that would tidy up the problematic product feeds.

Yesterday, however, FMTC quietly rolled out an invaluable addition to their merchant/advertiser toolbox — a brand new Datafeed Cleanup tool.

The solution is available to Premium (read: paid) subscribers only, and the price of using the tool depends on whether you run your program on one or multiple affiliate networks.

Having just “test-driven it” personally, I can report that on a 7,000+ SKUs data feed it took me only 14 seconds to upload the CSV feed to FMTC and then 45 seconds for the tool to tidy it up and download the clean feed to my computer.

Vero Beach Printer Weighs In on New Do-It-Yourself Printing Methods

July 6th, 2012 | Posted in Computers, Uncategorized

Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 06, 2012

For more than 30 years, Action Printers Inc., located in Vero Beach, Florida, has been providing clients with professional printing solutions. With advances in the last several years, it has become easier for those needing printing done to take the do-it-yourself approach. Though it is possible to succeed with a DIY printing solution, Action Printers Inc. draws attention to considerations that affect the professional quality and cost-effectiveness of home printing.

It has never been easier for consumers to print their own business cards, wedding invitations, fliers, greeting cards, and brochures. With a computer and a printer, anyone can create and print advertising materials right at home. Action Printers Inc. warns that this solution may not always prove optimal. The company has seen many examples of DIY print jobs where the end result looked homemade and inferior to professional work. Most of these examples come from customers who tried to print at home first and came to the company to remedy the end result.

The main appeal of DIY printing is the perceived cost benefit. Consumers think that they will be able to save a great deal of money by taking on the print job, but that isn’t always the case. Printing is rarely easy and is always time consuming; Action Printers Inc. suggests that consumers question how much their time is actually worth before they undertake such lengthy procedures.

Often, the home-printing patron will need to install new software and learn to use it. He or she will also need to configure the printer to work with new materials. Many printers are not capable of printing on the heavy card stock that professional printers use, risking potential mechanical failure. The consumer is then left to decide whether to buy a new printer or take the job to a professional; either way, he or she wastes time and money.

Action Printers Inc. recommends that anyone looking for a professional print job turn to a professional printer. A reputable company will ensure high quality results in a timely manner. Professional printers are also better able to fulfill the needs of special printing jobs and rush orders, and they help support the local economy.

About the company:

Established in 1972, Action Printers is so much more than just a print shop. They offer high quality, single, multiple or full color printing which they produce on premises. They excel in all facets of business printing from graphic design, to business forms. to booklets and fliers, customers can be sure they will be able to meet their needs. With a wide variety of printing equipment, Action Printers will have their customers’ orders printed in the requested time frame.

Telx Technologies, One Company – Unlimited Solutions

May 9th, 2012 | Posted in Computers, Uncategorized

North Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Our company philosophy of total customer satisfaction and making a difference has provided us a model for exceptional service, delivery and support. This model of excellence makes Telx, the destination of choice for all technological needs, at a very competitive price. Our goal is to enable our clients to do what they do best – earn profits from their core business, while we ensure that they comply with the technology market environment requirements in the most cost effective manner. Our company is committed to excellence, and that is found in all of our many different services. Our clients are our greatest asset, and we are dedicated to serving their needs. Telx Technologies includes a variety of services and more information can be found @ http://www.telxcomputers.com/about.php.

Here is an example why you should outsource your IT to Telx:

IT outsourcing is the process of contracting out your information technology functions to a service provider that will take on those functions and implement them for you. This service provider may be a division of the same corporation, or more than likely be a third party who is a separate entity altogether.

As IT costs are increasing for both small businesses and large companies, many of them are finding the paybacks of outsourcing. Some businesses look for services overseas in order to minimize their costs, But business must not look so far anymore because these services are readily available anywhere in the USA. The realization of outsourcing IT for businesses of all sizes has led it to become a multi-billion dollar industry. The trick to making this technique work for your business is to find the right company to provide the services for you.

The ideal service provider will offer cost-effective yet high quality services so that you will obtain precisely and only what you require. Once youve found the right business to do the job, you can get your company ready to take advantage of a number of important benefits to outsourcing information technology services. They include the following.

Affordability Affordability is only the start to the benefits that a company can obtain from outsourcing. That said, it is a significant one. The labor costs alone remain notably lower while you can benefit from higher levels of service. Companies are no longer required to have to go through the hiring process of bringing in new IT employees which reduces wages, benefits, training and many overhead costs related to in-house It.

Practicality Many of these service companies are designed specifically to be able to provide specific types of services, such as website updating, cloud services and internet security to name a few. This means that they are already fully equipped to perform their specialized services for you, and that you will be able to pay for the labor without having to invest for capital.

Flexibility -Aside from being affordable, many IT companies offer specially priced packages or ? la carte options that can allow you to choose the services that are appropriate for the needs of your business at the best possible price. This helps you to avoid extra spending on services that you wont even require. For example, you can choose either specific flat-rate project-based services where you know precisely what will be done and for how much, or you can find services that bill for their services per month, week, or hour.

Availability Unlike hiring employees to perform the tasks in-house, outsourcing IT allows you to simply find a business that offers the service youd like. Contact the business online or over the phone and youll have access to search engine optimization, website hosting, VOIP and other information technology services.

These are only a few of the many benefits to outsourcing IT that help to explain why so many companies are choosing this option as opposed to attempting to accomplish those tasks in-house. Though the primary advantage is usually considered to be the reduced cost, there are many other benefits that also occur at the same time. At Telx Computers we are committed to provide you with the best IT services tailored to your specific company needs.

Digital Agency Elevated Third to Develop New Portal for PostNet

May 7th, 2012 | Posted in Computers, Uncategorized

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

PostNet International Franchise Corp., the Denver-based franchisor of PostNet Neighborhood Business Centers, selected Denver digital agency Elevated Third to design and develop the companys new online portal. The digital agency is providing information architecture and development expertise to create an online tool that enables PostNet to manage the corporate brand while facilitating business for over 300 North American franchises.

PostNet chose to partner with Elevated Third due to the agencys extensive knowledge of Drupal, an open-source content management system that allows users to more easily manage a wide range of content types. The agency is redeveloping the companys current custom-coded intranet into a single, Drupal-interfaced portal with accessibility for an unlimited number of users. Along with the development of a new corporate portal, Elevated Third is maintaining several secondary PostNet sites, each already built within the Drupal CMS.

The new PostNet intranet will take full advantage of the versatility and powerful functionality that Drupal has to offer, granting company franchisees ease in reporting back to PostNets headquarters. In using Drupal, PostNet is able to leverage functionality that allows the company freedom to more easily make changes that do not require PostNet administrators to work directly with custom HTML.

PostNet anticipates that the new site structure, with its more friendly and organized user-interface, will allow business owners to better manage the operational health of each franchise online, while further extending the companys competitive reach as a resource in the business network industry. Elevated Third is excited to work alongside the international company, as the redesign project allows the agency to further apply its skills with backend development in intranet functionality.

Elevated Third is thrilled to further apply its development knowledge and resources to working with PostNets intranet and functionality. As a growing agency, its exciting to work with PostNet as they experience similar growth in their own industry. Were well-matched. Their evolving needs enable us to offer dynamic solutions, and further push the envelope, using Drupal as an intranet, says Megan Paladino, business development at Elevated Third.

“Best Book of the Year,” Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit, — Trout, Salmon, Bass Fishing Secrets by Harold Lyon Available as eBook on Amazon

April 17th, 2012 | Posted in Computers, Uncategorized

Meredith, NH (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Deep Waters Press is proud to release a revised third edition of Dr. Harold Lyons best selling, award-winning, definitive book on glacial lake salmon, bass, and trout fishing, Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit Six Centures of Wisdom from the Fifteen Master Anglers, as a new eBook available through Amazon.

Deep Waters Press also offers an up-to 50% sale on this popular hard and paperback book and the two DVDs in the unique Love Affair with Angling series by Drs. Vincent Giuliano and Harold Lyon. Disc 1 features interviews with the 15 Master Anglers, four of whom have died since the original version of the book was published. Disc 2, the definitive DVD on ice fishing, with a full hour and 48 minutes of fascinating fishing lore, and practical tips, features ice fishing with renown NH guide, Adrien Lavoie, streamer fly tying and fishing by some of the best fly tying artists in the U.S. including Jim Warner, Mike Martinek, Chuck French, and Alan Nute, passing it on to future generations, and the culinary art of preparing and cooking fresh water fish.

The DVD series is a companion to Dr. Lyon’s books. The new DVD was produced and directed by Dr. Vincent Giuliano, who is the popular, humorous “Grump Master” featured in the first DVD in the series. This second DVD has been hailed as “the most definitive ice fishing DVD ever produced. Lyon and Lavoie catch 19 Lake Trout in 2 hours of ice fishing while showing you how to do it.”

In these unique books and DVDs Dr. Lyon and the other 14 Master Anglers share 600 cumulative years of learnings and yearnings about fishing and the often-evasive fish in deep-water lakes. The book won the New England Outdoor Writers Association, “Best Book of the Year” award. These books and DVDs are a “must have” for every serious angler, revealing the secrets and tips from 15 Master Anglers on best lures, depths by month, speeds, secrets, and techniques for angling as well as the philosophy which drives anglers.

The books and DVDs have taken off across New England and spread to other regions of America to become the definitive guides to northern glacial lake fishing. 7000 copies of the book sold out fast during the first year of publication and it was reprinted as a revised quality paperback as well as a numbered limited collectors’ edition hardback. In 2007 a popular and unique DVD, the first disk in a series, was released by Deep Waters Press which introduces rare interviews with the colorful 15 Master Anglers sharing their rich stories, lore, tips, secrets, and history. Four of them have died since the project began, but both the book and DVDs capture their histories, humor, and spirit. Talented angling musicians composed original music scores for the DVDs.

Dr. Lyon, who co-produced the DVDs, is a former director of education for gifted children, project officer for “Sesame Street”, Assistant to the President of Ohio University, faculties of Georgetown University, Antioch, Dartmouth Medical School, Notre Dame College, and Universities of Massachusetts and Munich, where he is now a guest professor for several months a year, teaching physicians how to be more effective teachers. He received the Gold Medal in the 32nd International Film & TV Festival of New York, and a CINDY Award. He’s a West Point graduate and former Ranger Paratrooper Army Officer, has served in high positions in government and in the academic world. He’s the author of 7 books and hundreds of articles. He is a popular speaker around New England and in Europe including having been selected for the Humanities Council “Humanities on the Go” speaker program.

Dr. Vincent Giuliano, who was director and executive producer of the new DVD, is a divergent thinker: the first Ph.D. from Harvard in computer science, university professor and dean, author of over 150 papers and books, artist, pioneer of key developments in the electronic revolution, listed in “Who’s Who in the World.” He’s been working in visual media all his life and has now turned his creativity to studying longevity and now the artistic creation of this unique angling DVD series.

Published Praise for Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit and Love Affair with Angling DVD series:

“Part angling memoir, part history – the kind of book you can dip into at a moment’s notice, or read straight through as you would a novel. You’ll enjoy the warm positive tone registered by author Lyon’s insights. It’ll make you want to fish. It’ll shape your view point in ways you didn’t expect. Something for everyoneScientific angling information for those who want that. Hilarious anecdotal material you’d only get by knowing these people firsthand. It’s the perfect book to be sitting on your lakefront coffee table.It’s there when you want a dose of insights into New England glacial water. It captures in words — and with great feeling — what the big lake has to offer.” — Steve Hickoff – Outdoor Columist and Writer

“To his credit, author Lyon has invested a lot of humanity in his book. The profiles of anglers will touch your heart and remind us all of one of the reasons we fish: to share solitude with people we care about. The book never lets you forget that Lake Legends are built upon the life and times of people who loved to fish. As Lyon says “Life is not about fishing. Fishing is about life.” One of the Master Anglers is a 95- year- old angler named Barbara Cotton who was the oldest Orvis dealer in the country. In his epilogue, Lyon lets it all hang out and faces head-on the question that dogs him thoughout the book, “Why do I fish?” He draws a distinction between the angler and the fisherman. And his prose here really does rise to the “level of literature. He writes: “Some measure of respect, and even of spiritual reverence, is required to become an angler as opposed to being a fisherman. If we treat the spirituality of angling lovingly, and with a certain tenderness, it will not be lost on us. Then, in a wonderful fish story, he recounts his angling epiphany: the moment when he made the transition from fisherman to angler. I won’t spoil it for you. You’ll share the moment with him when you read “Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit.” — V. Paul Reynolds – Editor, Northwoods Sporting Journal, Maine Guide, and host of weekly radio show, “Maine Outdoors.”
