Steve's Malware Removal Guide

I've been meaning to write something like this for some time now, but have always pushed it off. No longer! After a co-worker asked me about a possible fraudulent antivirus software on their home computer, I figure this guide can help many. Or few. Ether way, here goes: Steve's Guide to Removing Malware, Spyware, Crapware, and Most Other Negative-Wares From Windows Computers* If a window pops up asking you to pay roughly $60 to install software that you didn't know about, you've got a malware issue. As long as the roots are too deep, you'll be fine. Here is a list of the main software that I use when cleaning a machine (keep in mind that these are all free): Malwarebytes This application is great in cleaning out primary infections. After install I recommend running the quick scan, then the full scan afterward.

State of My Media Centers

With my new (to me) dual-core atom Zotac with NVidia Ion graphics, I've been wanting to push out a new media center to the living room. The living room machine is currently a dual-core 2.2GHz P4 with 2GB of RAM. Not great specs, but certainly not bad as it can push 1080p easily. The real concern I have with it is the size of the computer. It's a slighly-larger-than-mid tower and has only somewhat quiet fans constantly blowing. Over a movie I can't hear it, but without the TV on it is a little noticeable.
