Very often, visiting websites or downloading programs from unreliable unverified websites can make our computer infected with malware and rootkits. If you are being redirected to an unwanted website, popups or another search engine, your browser is not only hijacked by a Trojan, but the computer is also infected with a rootkit as well. Many anti-malware vendors have failed to detect and prevent the infection in the past months, but to date, the latest variant of rootkit is possible to remove using several tools and malware removal programs.
To eliminate this type of malicious software, we need programs that are appropriate for the specific case.
The first method to use is to run a scan using an anti-malware removal program that is fast in detecting the rootkits and malvares . By fast detection, I mean that the security vendors that are able to release a detection and removal in no time. Using anti-malware programs to scan and remove is important, enabling you to find other malware that has resided in your computer as well as the rootkits.
Choose any of the free tools below to remove the virus:

In my previous article, I wrote about Dropbox and later found similar solution named Cloud Experience (CX). It offers 10GB storage which is somewhat bigger compared to Dropbox’s 2GB. At this moment CX client software is limited to Windows, Mac OS X, Android, Iphone and BlackBerry platforms. The promising feature set includes following.
- Automatically manages versions between people working on the same files so you’ll know who did what and never lose your work
- Data transfers are encrypted via 2048-bit SSL connections
- Locally stored data is broken into pieces and encrypted so that they cannot be reassembled or read directly from the disk without your login information
It is too early to compare CX with other cloud vendors, but don’t hesitate to try out as it is the best way to get to know.
Last week, Facebook started rolling out two-factor authentication, just like Gmail recently did. When enabled, Facebook will ask you to enter a code any time you log into Facebook from a new device. Thus, if someone gets a hold of your Facebook password, they won’t be able to log into a computer you haven’t already used, since they won’t know that code. It isn’t as useful if, say, someone steals your laptop, though, since you will have already activated Facebook on that device.
In addition, Facebook’s also fixed problems with the HTTPS support they recently added. When it first rolled out, it would set you back to HTTP whenever you used a Facebook application, and leave you there until you manually navigated back to the HTTPS version. Now, Facebook has fixed this issue, automatically sending you back to secure pages when you leave the insecure application pages. If you don’t already have this enabled, we highly recommend it.
They’ve also added a suite of family-oriented safety tools, including a repository of articles for parents and social reporting tools that lets people notify a member of their community when they see something they don’t like.
These features, as always, are rolling out gradually, so if you don’t see them just yet, don’t worry. Check back with your Account Settings every few days and you should see them pop up soon under “Account Security”. Hit the link to read more.
