When You Can’t Get Malwarebytes Installed Due To An Infection

May 23, 2016

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware; I can’t say enough about this software. Did you know that the cyber criminals who live on the underbelly of the internet have engineered malware infections to block the installation of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware so that you can’t eradicate the infection?

There is a solution to this issue and it is Malwarebytes Chameleon. What Chameleon does is get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed and running when blocked by malicious programs.

Malwarebytes Chameleon

  • Download Chameleon from the link above. Unzip the contents to a folder in a convenient location.
  • Follow the instructions in the included CHM Help File or, if the help file will not open, simply try to run the files by double-clicking on them one by one until one of them remains open, then follow the onscreen instructions

NEW Android Updates For Evernote That You Will Like

May 5, 2016

A new Android update for Evernote features a redesigned Evernote camera that makes capturing, managing and archiving scanned documents smoother and better than ever before.

When you take a picture of a document in automatic mode, Evernote’s in-app camera detects the document’s size and type and calibrates to take the best snap possible. Evernote then processes the image, crops it, and adjusts the contrast for a clear and crisp digital rendering. You don’t need to do anything else—just point the camera and let the app do all the work.

But wait, there is more! CLICK HERE to visit the Evernote blog to learn more about  the new document scanning feature and the other neat updates.

Checking Out The WordPress Editor Android Version

May 4, 2016

Trying something new on the blog… This morning installed the WordPress editor on my Android tablet with the hope I can post content that I find quickly,  “on the fly”, that I think is worth sharing. The posts will be minimalistic and simplistic in effect. Been blogging for nearly 8 years and is time to try something a little different to prevent blogger burnout.

If you have tried the Android version of the WordPress editor I would be interested in your thoughts … From what I am seeing so far,  just from this posting, it is very limited in what you can and cannot do; however, may serve the purpose I am looking for.


Geek Squeaks (#2015-37) FEATURING —Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Goes Mobile — and MORE GREAT STUFF

November 23, 2015

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Goes Mobile – I cannot say enough about Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it does not surprise me that they are offering an app for the Android platform (called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile). From what I have been reading about this, their intentions are to focus on keeping your phone (and tablet) malware and spyware free; AND, not turn into a security app that is full of bloat. You can read more about this app HERE and get it HERE

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile

Features of the mobile version are:

  • Detects and eliminates malware, including spyware and Trojans
  • Scans your apps for malicious code or Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs)
  • Alerts you if a link to a malicious website is detected in an incoming text message (SMS).
  • Stops unauthorized access to your personal data
  • Scans your Android device for security vulnerabilities
  • Identifies applications that are tracking your location

Learn More About The November Windows 10 Updates – The November update is a large update (or OS upgrade). On my box it took approximately 45 minutes for the update to complete. So what are we getting with this update? To get a good read and visual on some of the new features, go to Supersite for Windows and read The Windows 10 November Update: Your mega-guide to all the how-tos that features a photo gallery review.

A Security Program That Focuses On Toolbars, Browser Hijackers, PUP’s and Adware – Through recent experience of assisting someone with removing a browser hijacker, I have added AdwCleaner to my tech toolbox (and to the Downloads page under the Free Software Swarm). AdwCleaner saved me a ton of time and did the job. I do recommend that you use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in conjunction with AdwCleaner to rule out all avenues of a potential malware infection.

An Example Of Some Great LED Light And Network Technology – I have always had a fascination with the LED technology and how it is changing the way we use flashlights and outdoor lights. An outdoor (motion sensing light) that I am planning to purchase for my camper is the Mr. Beams Networked LED Wireless Motion Sensing Spotlight System. The cool thing about these lights is that they can be “networked” so that they will communicate with each other, so when one spotlight detects motion, the other lights on the “network” activate simultaneously. The lights require a D-Cell battery and will reportedly last up to a year before the next battery change.
