Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Cleanliness is next to my keyboard


with all the hype about viruses on computers you would think people would keep their hands clean, but they don't. Clean your hands people, viruses on computers come in 2 ways human contact and digital contact. If you are smart enough to have a anti virus already on your computer you are half way there. Now simply wash your hands every time you are near water. This means with soap and air dry if you want to save the world but if not put on a towel and dry those puppies! The next best thing if your not near water is the pump jell that evaporates, this is normally alcohol based but never the less will keep germs off the boards. Next never eat near the keyboard, yah I know drink plenty of water but keep everything else away. this will help not only your weight, but will keep the inevitable crumb from climbing into the cracks of the keyboard. Which ultimately will keep cockroaches, fly's, and bugs off the board as well. remember this is were you work and play. don't foul it up with making it dirty. If it did happen to become dirty, then when it is off put some Windex style liquid on a cloth towel not too damp mind you, and scrub gently the keys. not hard or you can pull off the letters and that's no fun. so stay healthy and enjoy my 400 words a minute typing skills, (of which 3 words are spelled correctly) good day.

Received a message from security warning that my faceboook account has a virus or malware called koobface. How can I clean this up so I can open my facebook account?


I suggest you to scan computer with hand scanning tool in safe mode of Windows. When computer start, after few second you press F8 key more times in interval of 1 second. You must see option for going to 'Safe mode with networking'. When Windows start, you will have 'bad' icon looking, but don't worry. If you network is on (it will be, if it was in standard Windows mode).
With browser, you can go to ESET (Nod32) antivirus page: http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner
Download 'ESET Online Scanner', and scan your computer with this. Make sure that you are put option for scan and delete (I think that 'only scan' is default).

Some viruses are so hard to clean, and one of option is use live linux CD (Mint linux, burn on CD from iso image). Share partition with Samba sharing (control panel), and connect computer with network connection to another one (with antivirus). Than scanning files with clean computer.
But this is hard way, and you must know what are you doing (create sharing and network connection). This is only option when virus has hard control with Windows OS. When you boot linux from CD, windows files are not in use, and it can be clean.

I suggest Firefox web browser for more safety way of surfing. AVG antivirus is free option for protection for home users.

Good luck...

how can i clean my comp. drivers for free


If you drive an automobile with "used" tires, rather than buying new tires every week, then keeping the current device-drivers is fine, as long as your computer is not giving you any problems.

All those "driver-tuneup" products are *NOT* needed. Period.
Ignore all the "marketing-hype".
