remove malware with malwarebytes

Remove Malware with Malwarebytes Free

I am the resident computer guy.  So I get lots of requests to fix computers.  It is now so easy to remove most malware that I am really surprised people still ask me.  Here is how I remove malware on most systems.

Step 1.  Download the Trial Version of malwarebytes

You can get the trial version for 30-days.  It is great software so I encourage you to buy it – https://www.malwarebytes.com/  Download the free trial on your desktop or somewhere you can easily find it.

Step 2.  Restart your system in “Safe Mode”

Once malwarebytes is downloaded on your system, restart the computer and hit the “F8” key to over and over until you are given the option to boot the system in a different state. Select “Safe Mode”

Step 3.  Install Malwarebytes

Double click Malwarebytes, and follow the instructions.

Step 4. Start Malwarebytes

How long this takes depends on how much data Malwarebytes has to go through and how fast you system is.  Some things will take more than normal antimalware software.  Rootkits for example, are a little harder to get rid of.  For these, I have found it helpful to google the errors, warning banners and symptoms you are seeing to find someone else who had the same issue and fixed it.  Some are so bad you will have to search for an answer on a separate system.

Good luck to you.

Physical Security Ring Video Door Bell Review

Just bought the Ring.com video door bell and I like it!  If you have not heard of this device, what it does is sends a notification to your phone whenever someone rings your doorbell or comes within close proximity of your front door.  The notification allows you to see them on video and talk to them straight from your phone.

We went on a trip to another state and I was able to talk to guest when they were talking outside my front door.  They were shocked.  For a small fee of $3/month (or $30 for the year) you can have Ring.com save the video footage.  This would come in handy if someone was at your door doing something they were not supposed to be doing.

There are a few issues I have with the device.  It does not allow you to see your front time on demand.  Meaning, you cannot hit a button and see what is going on.  Someone has to be trigger the motion detection or ring to doorbell in order to be prompted to see what is going on.  Also there was a vulnerability in the ring.com software that was had the secret key of your wifi network unencrypted, but this was fixed by ring.com as soon as they discovered it.  The other thing I have an issue with, is the lag.  There is like a 5+ second delay from the time the system is activated to the time it gets to your phone.

fix the fan of toshiba Satellite P755 S5380

I recently fixed the fan of my old toshiba Satellite P755 S5380.  As you will see it is actually pretty easy ;D

If your systems starts making a strange sound (like grinding or whining) it may either be the fan or the hard drive.  If you don’t have any system issues such as very slow data retrieval and your system is running hotter than usual, it may be the fan.

SCAM $10 Million, ATM Master Card Payment

This is a SCAM:

From Desk Of Mr. Carlos Roberto
Fidelity Commercial Bank Kenya
Address: JH A 906 – Thinka Road Nairobi- Kenya
Phone: +254-712-371-370

RE:  $10 Million, ATM Master Card Payment

Dear Fund Beneficiary,

email-scam
This is the 3rd time I am sending you this notification letter regarding to your abandoned ATM Master Card valued sum of US$10 Million and I have not received any positive respond from you or making a suggestion on how you wish to receive your ATM Card. Once again; I am Mr. Carlos Roberto, the new director ATM Head of Operation Bank Of Africa, I resumed to this office on the 15th of December 2015 and during my official research I discovered an abandoned ATM Master card valued sum of $10 Million belonging to you as the rightfully intimate beneficiary.

I tried to know why this card has not been released to you but I was told by the Union management that the ATM CARD was sent From Nigeria to here in Kenya because the director ATM head of operation officers in Nigeria hold your card for his own personal use without knowing that his evil plans towards diverting your fund will be discovered.

Now that your ATM Master card is in Kenya and ready for your receiving, therefore you can come down here to our bank to pick up your card direct from my office or alternatively it can be arranged ship to your address through any registered reliable courier service company that you will take care of the courier charge, hope it is cleared and accepted by you?

I don’t know the courier cost of shipping the card to you but if you permit me and accept the terms, then I can make an inquiry from the courier shipping company to find out the cost, but in that case you will be required to forward to me your address where you want to receive the card to enable me find out the shipping cost to your location.

Your direct telephone number and address will be needed and more details of your ATM card payment will be made known to you as soon as I receive your swift positive response.

Do not hesitate to call me on +254-712-371-370 as soon as you read this mail.

Thanks for your co-operation and i wait for your kind positive respond.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Carlos Roberto
