How to protect your PC and remove spyware, malware for FREE

By | May 10th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

With so much malicious software around at the moment that is getting better at tricking us into opening a page, an email or clicking at link,  we all need to make sure that we are protecting ourselves and our computers, laptops and tablets the best we can. This can be expensive but it doesn't have to be, there are many  free programs around to download which work perfectly well but you have to be careful where you download them from as some of the links on the net can contain nasties themselves, (so I've included some good links for you).  Then there are the evil pop ups that you have a virus and to use their scanner, normally what  happens is you use it and they tell you you have to pay to remove it. Now you are infected and also if you put your card details in, they have your information as well. Free software, utilities and tools to protect your system from malware or to find the infection or virus or worm, and to help you remove it. [...]

Nokia N8 Smartphone – Personal Review

By | February 27th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

As we know, I love to try out different phones or gadgets or applications and I will give my honest view, in the simplest terms for people to understand.  This time I've been lucky enough to trial a Nokia N8 Smartphone, thanks to Womworld/nokia.From opening the box.......  HardwareThe N8 is extremely pleasing to the eye, its sleek, slender style and the courageous metalic green colour gave me visions of a Porsche or a Ferrari racing car racing around a track. A truly beautiful design.  It felt good in my hand, a comfortable size and it doesn't have a plastic feel to it as some phones do. This phone feels light and floaty whilst also feeling strong and sturdy. Astounding quality.Dimensions·                       Size: 113.5 x 59 x 12.9 mm·                       Weight (with battery): 135 g·                       Volume: 86 ccFabulous, I loved the look and feel of the N8There were however two small things I didn't like about the design,The flaps at the side covering the slots for the microSDcard and the SIM card: I found them difficult to use and they don't look like they would take [...]

How to check your DirectX version in Windows 7

By | February 5th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

I was concerned that I didn't have the most upto date DirectX and for a moment I couldn't work out how to check.  After the interest in my other "How to" blogs like the YFrog post,  I thought that other people may have the same problem, so here are the instructions on how to find out what directx version you are using. The DirectX technology has grown alongside improvements in graphics processing hardware, so you can get the best possible PC gaming experience on Windows. Windows 7 helps you stay right on top of your game, with the best possible visual effects. With DirectX 11, your warp-speed races and mind-bending, inter-galactic feuds can look incredible. Of course great graphics aren’t all about games. With high-end graphics hardware, you’ll also get an unprecedented visual experience for your non-gaming applications.http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/windows-7/features/directx-11.aspxHow to check what version of Microsoft DirectX you are using.Click StartClick Run or Search Run and Click. Type dxdiag press Enter And there you have the DirectX Diagnostic ToolLook at the bottom of the list of specs.DirectX Version: Mine shows it as being Version 11 - which [...]

Microsoft Arc Mouse Review

By | January 13th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I must admit  this mouse was a total impulse buy - its curves, angles and smooth design caught my eye and I had to have one. I am a bit fussy when it comes to using a mouse - its something I use a lot as I'm not really a keyboard shortcut person, I'm a scroller and a clicker. I also draw and design with my mouse so its really important that a mouse has a good feel, is comfortable and responsive. I usually take a while to choose a new mouse but this impulse buy seems to have been a good one. The arc feels luxurious in my hand , its so silky and comfortable I forget its there. I've read articles where people thought it was too small, I'm not sure what bucket sized hands they have, mine aren't exactly small and it is absolutely ideal for me. Even though essentially the Arc was designed for the purpose of being portable and wireless this wasn't even a factor for me, I didn't need it to be either of [...]
