- SPYWARE, MALWARE AND TROJAN HORSES COULD BECOME REAL NUISANCE AFTER REMOVAL

In several deliveries:16, 24, 34, 37, 39, 54, 63, the fundamental question of computing's desktop security had been raised to sounding warning against downloading and using freeware that may be packed with spyware, Trojan horses and adware.

Every day the threats' level of worms and malicious spyware's invasion increase. People who thrive in producing these electronic beasts have a prolific imagination and attacks are now conducted by waves to swamp and break down antivirus and spyware fighters' defense.

Therefore, even if you have Sentinels and Gatekeepers installed like the excellent ZoneAlarm from zonelabs.com or AVG Antivirus, you may be infected one day if you are not vigilant; because there is always time discrepancy between the time of an attack and the one when patches are made available by Sentinels and Gatekeepers' producers - sometimes up to 10 hours.

Indeed, right now, E-mails are dispatched by hackers trying to let you believe that your mail account would be suspended, that your account is temporally closed for security reasons or that you have extended the storing size allocated to your account. Etc. Be very careful not to download and open these tricky E-mails. They can create havoc into your system. Take the precaution to install an E-mail filter as ePrompter. It is free and very efficient.

If you let these weird Emails into your mail system and your Sentinels or Gatekeepers are caught out of guard, you are "willingly" installing worms, spyware etc.; allowing people behind the trickery to take control of your computer and do whatever they like with it. Use it as a mail server for instance to dispatch million of spams around the world; or just play with files on the hard disk retrieving sensitive information and data such as credit card numbers. Etc.

If you succeed removing the intruder using popular spyware removal tools, you may find yourself in bigger trouble. Indeed, when "expelled" from your system, the attacker may not leave alone. It can drag out Dynamic Link Library (DLLs) and or remove vital Registry's entries that are necessary for instance to connect to the Net.

Forums abound of such occurrences and people crying for help.

- UNDERSTAND AND CONTROL WEIRD FILES EXTENSIONS


Have you ever come across weird files extensions? I have encountered few in my computing live. And believe me it is frustrating not to know how to handle the stuff. Since I discovered FILExt, the file extension source, the frustration is over.

FILExt is a detailed database of file extensions and programs that use them. FILExt is not a general support site. A search on the database might result in multiple possibilities; it will be up to you to determine which, if any, of these are the program/format you require information about. That is the reason many of the links on FILExt site will open a new browser window to let you have constant reference to the FILExt data.
