Using Spyware Blaster to protect yours sytem from Spyware,Hijackers,costly Dialers and Malware

Contributed by mk

Many Spyware, Hijackers, and Dialers are installed in Internet Explorer through a Microsoft program called ActiveX. These activex programs are downloaded when you go to certain web sites and then they are run on your computer. These programs can do a variety of things such as provide legitimate services likes games or file viewers, but they can also be used to install Hijackers and Spyware on to your computer without your permission.

Developed in 2002 to help users prevent spyware installs, SpywareBlaster pioneered the effective use of prevention techniques to reduce or greatly eliminate spyware-related problems, as well as problems related to other potentially unwanted software such as dialers, browser hijackers, and adware.
Today's SpywareBlaster is greatly enhanced - protection is still the foremost purpose of the program, but it also provides unique utilities like the exclusive "System Snapshot", and various useful tools. The interface has been upgraded to provide easier access to all of the new options, including protection for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and many other browsers.

Enabling Protection

1.) Open SpywareBlaster
2.) Click on the "Enable All Protection" link under Quick Tasks on the main screen.

    SpywareBlaster Features: System Snapshot

    General Description:
    SpywareBlaster System Snapshot creates an "image" of various browser and system settings. Should your computer ever become infected with spyware, running System Snapshot could help remove many, if not all, components of the infection. System Snapshot can also reverse the changes of many browser hijackers.
    (NOTE: It is highly recommended that you run a dedicated spyware cleaner like Spybot S & D or Ad-Aware before running System Snapshot - if your spyware cleaner detects nothing, System Snapshot is a second step. It can also be used to restore entries that many spyware cleaners do not cover, and to reset browser settings to their previous state.)
    First Use:
    Before you can use System Snapshot to restore, you must create a snapshot. After selecting this option and pressing "Go >" on the main System Snapshot screen, you will need to enter a name for your snapshot. It is highly recommended that you pick a memorable name, or a name of some significance, to ease the selection process for a restore, e.g. "before program X" or "after November update". After clicking the "Create Snapshot! >" button, System Snapshot will scan through various system settings (including registry entries and disk files) and create a Snapshot point.
    Restoring a System Snapshot:
    Selecting this option on the main System Snapshot screen will take you to the Snapshot selection area. A list will be displayed of all the System Snapshots created by the current user. (See note below for more information.) Upon selecting a System Snapshot and clicking next, SpywareBlaster System Snapshot will scan your system and compare the current state to the state recorded in the select Snapshot. If any changes or additions are detected, they will be displayed in a list. Simply select the items you wish to have fixed and press the "Restore Select Items" button to fix the detected changes/additions. The option is also provided to delete Snapshots.
    NOTE: System Snapshot points are limited to the user that created them because many of the items stored only relate to that particular user. If you have a multi-user system, it is recommended that you create System Snapshots for each user/profile.
    SpywareBlaster System Snapshot only shows the Snapshots the current user has created (no other saved snapshot points are shown).

    SpywareBlaster Tools

    SpywareBlaster provides additional functionality in its "Tools" section. A short description of each of the Tools can be found below.
    Browser Pages: This displays many of the "browser pages" on your system (for example, your homepage, various search pages, etc.) and provides the functionality to change any of them. Pages are displayed for both Internet Explorer and Mozilla.
    Hosts Safe: The Hosts Safe can store encrypted backup copies or snapshots of the Hosts file. These backup copies are stored in the SpywareBlaster folder. Should you ever need to restore a backup copy of your hosts file, simply select it from the displayed list and press the "Restore Saved Backup" button.
    Misc. Internet Explorer Settings: Here you can edit a few Internet Explorer settings that are not readily available through any built-in interface in IE.
    Flash Killer: Macromedia Flash can be used to display animated interfaces on websites, animations, and other "Flash" content. Unfortunately, advertisers have begun to use Flash as a method for creating annoying and distracting content. And some users that wish to keep Flash off of their computers altogether have found it troublesome to prevent every website that uses Flash from installing it. Flash Killer can set the kill bit for the Macromedia Flash control - preventing the installation completely and disabling it if it is already installed. Reversing this procedure is easy: just uncheck the box.
    Custom Blocking: Create your own list of ActiveX controls that you want to block. Add search engine toolbars, browser plug-ins, and more - block any ActiveX control you want. You can even download Custom Blocking lists other people have created.
    (Warning: Please be careful when using a Custom Blocking list someone else has created. Only consider using a Custom Blocking list if you trust the person that created it.)

    SpywareBlaster Updates

    It's very important that you keep your protection up-to-date. SpywareBlaster offers two easy options:
    1.) AutoUpdate - keep your protection up-to-date automatically! It requires to but the spyware blaster.
    2.) Check for Updates - check for the latest protection updates manually, using the built-in wizard, it is for free spywareblaster and also its updates are very tiny and also it works like a charm in dialup connections.

    PureText 2.0(only removes rich formatting from text)

    aaaaa

    PureText makes this simple by adding a new Windows hot-key (default is WINDOWS+V) that allows you to paste text to any application without formatting.After running PureText.exe, you will see a "PT" tray icon appear near the clock on your task bar.  You can click on this icon to remove formatting from the text that is currently on the clipboard.  You can right-click on the icon to display a menu with more options.Simply use its hot-key to paste text instead of using the standard CTRL+V hot-key that is built into most Windows applications. PureText is completely free to use.

    To configure PureText, right-click on its tray icon and choose "Options" from the pop-up menu.  The default hot-key is WINDOWS+V, but this can be changed.  In this Options window, you can also configure PureText to run each time you log into Windows.

    aaa

    What PureText Will and Will Not Do

    PureText only removes rich formatting from text.  This includes the font face, font style (bold, italics, etc.), font color, paragraph styles (left/right/center aligned), margins, character spacing, bullets, subscript, superscript, tables, charts, pictures, embedded objects, etc.  However, it does not modify the actual text.  It will not remove or fix new-lines, carriage returns, tabs, or other white-space.  It will not fix word-wrap or clean up your paragraphs.  If you copy the source code of a web page to the clipboard, it is not going to remove all the HTML tags.  If you copy text from an actual web page (not the source of the page), it will remove the formatting.

    PureText is basically equivalent to opening Notepad, doing a PASTE, followed by a SELECT-ALL, and then a COPY.  The benefit of PureText is performing all these actions with a single Hot-Key and having the result pasted into the current window automatically.

    Opera the smartest browser on earth

    ddddd

    according to Opera evangelist Bruce Lawson. "There was a browser war, a war to the death, and IE very nearly won the web. And now we see that there doesn't need the only people injured in the war are the consumers and developers". We have been using Opera for more than 4 years though we have faced some sort of from time to time website rendering problems but still the satisfaction is that it has been smooth and no fuss browser and also surpirse us with its wonderful feature rich only in a tiny package and download and that is the specialty of Opera browser as we have been depicting only small chunk of water in the ocean of tools Opera has given and in a sense we think it is like microsoft operating system which does not reveal much of its hidden features and also with some awful help file.

    Opera has been phenomenal for us though we have experienced some sort of problem with Zone Alarm Pro with its privacy on but adjusting then it will be ok for us  and followings are the some of the Opera’s characteristics  from its home site.

    Magic Wand

    Often, you need to fill out forms on the Web and provide the same information. You can save this information just once in Opera and easily paste it into any Web form. Opera even offers to automatically complete it.

    Open Tools > Preferences > Wand

    Fill in the information you would like to have easy access to and click OK

    When entering information into a form, right-click any text field and select Insert personal

    Mouse Gestures

    If each program tries to do this at the same time, you soon notice the slow down that occurs, due to your CPU trying to help all the programs to load, and your hard disk accessing multiple files.

    ss_startdelayt

    Startup Delayer allows you to setup how many seconds after Windows has started, to load each program.

    For Example:
    If you have your mail program and a special clock starting up, then you can make your mail start say 10 seconds after Windows has loaded, and then the special clock start 20 seconds after Windows Starts.

    Compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista

    Startup Delayer has been awarded the following merits:

     

    The power to speed up your computer's startup process!

    When Windows loads it's Startup file, it attempts to load every program in there at the same time. Therefore if you have quite a lot of programs starting when Windows starts, each program will try and grab CPU time so that it can load.

    HeadCase MindMapper is now free.

    It has been developed by Elliott Bignell.

    it is unsupported freeware.

    According to Techsupportalert 

    “It does have some bugs...  Imported graphics don't seem to 'stick' after you close, then reopen the app.  There are some screen-draw glitches where the map, or certain branches, will disappear then reappear when you zoom in and out.  Lastly, I find that the undo works haphazardly.  In spite of this, the program is really pretty cool.   You can see some examples on the LoanedGenius.com site. “

    It used to sell for about  $70 US for the full version.  Elliott posted the key at Techsupportalert .
