Remove Facebook Voice Message Virus (Improved Instructions) by 2-Spyware

Facebook voice message virus – a malicious campaign that can relate in the installation of a Trojan horse if the misleading voice message is played by the victim…

Even though the message itself might not always directly launch the installation of malware, it might reroute the user to some type of potentially dangerous website where cyber threats such as trojans, ransomware viruses, cryptocurrency miners, browser hijackers, or adware are distributed.

Norton Power Eraser – A Tool To Help You Eliminate Deeply Embedded Malware

Norton Power Eraser was recently updated and I thought I would at least post some information on this security application.

This application has the ability to “aggressively” detect and remove malware that can impersonate legitimate applications, such as fake antivirus software. These applications often are described as scamware, rogueware, scareware, etc…

When using an application such as this, make sure you have some knowledge of the Windows OS above and beyond the basic level so that you don’t end up doing more harm than good. Here is a tutorial to get you started and to understand more – Click Here for Tutorial

Scans Local Networks with “Angry IP Scanner”

Back in the day when I was a Computer Information Specialist, networks were being built and the internet was just ramping up. In those days you had to be creative. A tool that I used at the time to scan and monitor my network that consisted of a campus of buildings was Angry IP Scanner. After all these years, Angry IP Scanner still surfaces here at ‘What’s On My PC” to tell me, “I am still around”…

Angry IP Scanner (or simply ipscan) is an open-source and cross-platform network scanner designed to be fast and simple to use. It scans IP addresses and ports as well as has many other features.

It is widely used by network administrators and just curious users around the world, including large and small enterprises, banks, and government agencies.

It runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, possibly supporting other platforms as well.

FDA approves new Coronavirus test that could speed rate of testing up to tenfold | TechCrunch

The U.S. Food and Drug and Administration has granted emergency approval for use of a new test that can increase the range of testing patients by up to 10 times compared to methods in use currently, Bloomberg reports. That speed improvement refers specifically to the technical capabilities of the testing process, meaning access to testing is still a separate issue, but it is the first commercially available test that has received emergency approval and for which equipment exists in fairly high volume across the U.S.

Never Delete an App Without Doing These 4 Things First – Reader’s Digest

Don’t go on a deleting frenzy just yet, though. For some apps, you’ll need to do more than simply hitting the “delete” button.

There are multiple steps involved in making sure an app is fully disconnected from your other accounts and information. Tcherchian suggests following this process:

  1. Delete all of your data on the app. All of it! Go through every setting on the app and look for options about data or privacy.
  2. Also log in through a web browser. Sometimes you’ll have additional settings available through the desktop version of the app.
  3. Unlink or revoke any Facebook or Google integrations you may have enabled.
  4. Contact the app developer and request in writing that your data be completely deleted.

[UPDATED] Windows Repair Toolbox – A “Ready Made” Tech Toolbox

I have featured “Windows Repair Toolbox” here at “What’s On My PC” in the past and have it embedded as a permanent link at “Bookmarks4Techs“. This portable Windows-based program can be used by others who assist others with their PC’s OR can actually be used as a security application on your computer at home. For example, I keep a copy of this program on a flash drive that is connected to my PC; ready for use in the event I need to travel with it OR I use it to perform security scans of my PC on a regular basis. What I love about this program is that it will auto-update the applications. Very well done software that really took some thought to put this together.
