In computing, BIOS is an acronym that stands either for the Basic Input/Output System or for Built In Operating System. The latter term dates from the late 1970s and early 1980s when the PCs of the day normally contained a comprehensive operating system in their ROMs. The latter acronym is still much used in conjunction with gadgetry containing dedicated computers, such as modern cameras, white-wear, etc. The underlying technology is very similar, being little more than a matter of complexity.
BIOS refers, in part, to the firmware code (a type of boot loader) run by a PC when first powered on. The primary function of the BIOS is to identify and initialize system component hardware (such as the video display card, hard disk, and floppy disk) and some other hardware devices. This is to prepare the machine into a known low capability state, so other software programs stored on various media can be loaded, executed, and given control of the PC. This process is known as booting, or booting up, which is short for bootstrapping.
The BIOSes of IBM PC class machines are coded programs embedded on a chip that recognize and control various devices that make up x86 personal computers, and provide a small library of basic Input/Output functions that can be called to operate and control the peripherals such as the keyboard, primitive (800 x 600) display functions and so forth.

I hope it helps!!!

Nod32 eset 4

Go to and click download button, then click take me to my download. Choose your operating system either 32 or 64bit. I recommend to download ESET Smart Security 4 then click download button. It will ask you a username and password use this:



After downloading, install the antivirus and use again the username and password if asking for a username and password. After installing, it is must update the antivirus defination by clicking the update and update virus defination. If already expired for about 1 or 3 months after installing. Open the eset smart security by double clicking the eset icon on the left side below near on the system date and time. When appearing on the screen press F5 then uncheck the three box that has been checked. Click ok and visit the website and copy the username and password. Click update and click username on eset antivirus and paste the username and password you have copied on the then press F5 again and check those you have uncheck then click ok. Update again the antivirus defination and your antivirus will extend again for 1 or 3 months expiration. Have a nice day.
