Read About Malwarebytes Amnesty Program

June 30, 2015

If you have been pirating the Malwarebytes Anti-malware Premium version, you will receive an amnesty.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium

The developers of Malwarebytes is rolling out a new licensing key system to track their licensees and to prevent pirating; however, to bring this system up to speed they are giving the software pirates an amnesty by giving them a 1 year subscription key (for FREE). From what I have researched, the developer, “in a nutshell”, lost track of who was legal and who was not; and, the only way to remedy the issue was to perform an audit to collect data to determine what keys are still alive, and who are they used by. If you are a true pirate, the furthest you will get is a year’s worth of Malwarebytes. To read a good article about this CLICK HERE

What the end user of Malwarebytes will see, whether you are a pirate of not, is the following message:

Select the option below (in your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium product) that describes how you originally received your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro or Premium license. We’ll assign you a new key, and you’ll be good to go.

  1. I’m not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet. (Select this option and we will issue you a brand-new key with 12 free months of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.)

  2. I purchased my key. (Select this option and we will issue you a replacement key with the same license to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as your original key.)

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is an industry-leading scanner that detects and removes worms, Trojans, rootkits, rogues, spyware, and other dangerous malware from your home PC. There is a FREE version and a paid premium version. The FREE version does not perform background scanning; whereas, the premium version (with background scanning and more features) is ready and alert at all times.

New Version of DNS Jumper (V2.0)

June 29, 2015

Typically, changing your DNS on your computer requires configuration changes, that are actually pretty easy to do; however, most people will not attempt those changes for fear of causing problems with their PCs. Another factor to all of this is knowing what DNS servers to use and which ones are safe (which would require some research on your part).

Recently I posted an article about a utility called DNS Jumper that is engineered to change your DNS setting for you and if you are not satisfied with those changes you simply revert back to the defaults. When it comes to changing your DNS, all the work has been done for you with this utility.

Today I noticed that a new version of DNS Jumper is out there that is deserving of attention. This little utility (which is portable) has evolved into a very attractive and powerful tool where you can manually select a free DNS Service or you can let DNS Jumper find the fastest DNS service for you.

DNS Jumper 2.0

DNS Jumper 2.0

DNS – or domain name system – is the protocol on the internet that turns human-comprehensible website names such as sordum.org into addresses understandable by machines.(machine-readable “IP addresses”) , In some cases, you can increase the browsing speed or improve your security by replacing the DNS provided by your provider , DNS Jumper is a tool which makes it easy for you.

Use StreamWriter To Record Music From Various Internet Radio Stations

June 16, 2015

Found an interesting FREE piece of software, called StreamWriter, that records music broadcasted by internet radio stations. There are other recorders out there; but, if you read the feature list below you will see that StreamWriter sets itself apart from other recorders. I also like the idea that you can download a portable version of StreamWriter, which is a great way to test and try the software, without performing an installation. In my testing I was impressed with the recordings (which can be done in tandem from various sources), the wishlist feature (that will look for, wait and record a specific song), and the ability to edit out sections of any MP3 you download.

StreamWriter

Feature List:

  • Record as many streams as you want at the same time (MP3/AAC)
  • Automatically record a wishlist’s song when it’s playing on a stream
  • Player for streams and recorded files
  • Track splitting with silence detection
  • Function for manual cutting of saved titles
  • Tracks are named by a given pattern
  • Short songs (ads) can be skipped
  • Writing of tags to recorded files
  • Script-based postprocessing
  • Applying of effects to recorded songs (SoX)
  • Integration of different audio encoders
  • Scheduled recordings
  • Stream browser
  • Multilingual
  • Can be installed or used in portable mode

…and much more!

Copy A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) To A Solid State Drive (SSD) With AOMEI Backupper Standard (FREE)

May 15, 2015

Recently I purchased and installed the Transcend Information 256 GB SATA III 6 Gb/s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive in a Windows 7 based Toshiba notebook computer that was approximately 5 years old. The difference this upgrade made was very noticeable. Part of the upgrade process involved cloning the existing hard disk drive (HDD) to the new solid state drive (SSD). I had the option of using the Transcend cloning software; however, I opted for AOMEI Backupper Standard (which is FREE reputable backup software) that is renown for it’s disk cloning features.

AOMEI Backupper Standard allows for resizing of partitions during the cloning process and supports the copying of hard disk drives (HDD) to solid state drives (SSD). This program can make an exact and complete copy of a disk or partition directly from one disk to another.

AOMEI Backupper Standard

In the event (as I experienced), if you want to adjust the partitions size or location on the destination disk, there is an option that will allow you to select editing of the partitions on the destination disk.

Options available are:

  • Copy without resizing partitions: Do not do any changes.
  • Fit partition to entire disk: The destination disk partitions will be automatically resized to the entire disk, appropriate for the disk size.
  • Edit partitions on this disk: Manually adjust the partition size and location by dragging a slider bar.

In the end, I had a good result with using AOMEI Backupper Standard in the cloning process.

If you are looking for excellence in backup software, AOMEI Backupper Standard can do it all, such as:

  • Creating a system image to keep Windows and applications safe.
  • Backing up entire hard disk or specified partitions, or just cloning them.
  • Backing up or syncing your most important files and folders on a regular basis.
  • Saving time and effort with automatic, incremental, and differential backups.

Uninstall Programs In Bulk With BCUninstaller

May 7, 2015

BCUninstaller (Bulk Crap Uninstaller) is one of those portable apps that I can see being used on new PC’s that ship with a bunch of software crap and used on older PC’s where over a period of time the end user has installed numerous programs. This program is designed to uninstall software programs in bulk. It also had the ability to scan the registry and file structure to clean up the leftovers. Nice utility that is under active development and makes for a nice addition to the tech toolbox

BCUninstaller

  • Available in English and Polish language, more to come (contact me if you are willing to translate BCU to your language)
  • Uninstall any number of programs at once
  • Quiet (unattended) uninstall of many programs, even if they don’t explicitly support it
  • Intelligent ordering of uninstallers in large tasks
  • Detection and clean up of leftovers after uninstalling applications
  • Uninstall lists (automatically select uninstallers from the list, can be edited in a text editor)
  • Advanced grouping, sorting, filtering and searching

  • Visibility of protected and invalid entries (system uninstaller doesn’t see them)

FREE Microsoft Software To Create Your Own Movies

April 21, 2015

Looking for an easy way to edit and create your own movie or enhanced slide show (using your photos)? Microsoft back in 2012, as part of their FREE Windows Essentials package included Windows Movie Maker.

 Windows Live Movie Maker

Today, in 2015, Windows Movie Maker is still a viable option (for FREE) that will run on 32- or 64-bit version of Windows 7, or 32- or 64-bit version of Windows 8, or Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft did a fine job with this software in giving people the ability to take their photos and movies and compile (and edit) them into something that will grab anyone’s attention.

When you download Windows Movie Maker, you will be prompted to download the Windows Essential platform (which is OK); however, you will reach a point during the install where you need to select what Windows Essential option you want. Simply select Windows Movie Maker and Photo Gallery.

FEATURES AT A GLANCE:

  • Import and edit slide shows and videos
  • Add and edit audio
  • Edit your movies and choose a theme
  • Share your movie online
