As many of you know I have a fondness for Microsoft Security Essentials. I am biased towards this antivirus due to the fact it is free and it’s the best Antivirus out there as of this article.

Today is the release of the update from 1.0 to 2.0 a few needed features and better support for your killing off of those pesky viruses.


Will this antivirus kill 100% of all viruses? NO. Unfortunately no antivirus can do such a thing. However it does it better than any other antivirus I have found.

Another great reason I prefer Microsoft Security Essentials is how well it integrates with native windows operating system utilities. Without adding extra fluff like its own firewall or proxy servers (this is true for your expensive Antivirus suites). These extras will commonly get attacked and slow down your computer. Microsoft Security Essentials does not slow down your pc unless it finds an virus or threat and it will immediately stop the process and let you know.

These features translate into not only faster boot and shutdown times but also a much smoother day to day protection.

What’s great is it now it allows Small Business users a free antivirus without cost. Now if we could just get this for the Enterprise size Business.

Never the less. Go update your copy of Microsoft Security Essentials. Did I mention it is free?

Let us know how much you like Microsoft Security Essentials on Twitter or Facebook.

Over the past few years having supported and installed and troubleshooting Windows Vista as well as Windows 7 I have found my share of corrupt Hibernation settings.

The file that is created for hibernation to exist is “Hiberfil.sys” This file can be corrupted so easily by many different viruses as well as rootkits. I disable it by default. Besides Hiberfil.sys is typically 4+ gigs of data storage that can be reclaimed.

How to disable Hibernation:

To do this you will need administrator permission to change the setting.

I recommend an easy way is to create a new shortcut on your desktop.

1. Right click on Desktop

2. Choose New –> shortcut

3. In the text box type “CMD” click next through the wizard

4.Now you have a shortcut. Right click on the new cmd shortcut and scroll to run as administrator

5.Now you have a Administrator Command prompt

6. Type: “powercfg /h off” (without quotes of course)

7. if it works you will get a new line waiting your response.

Now you have turned off Hibernation in Windows. Now go enjoy some sleep…. (sleep mode still works)

So you got one of those great little virus’s going around. You were able to clean it off after a bit of time and gnashing of teeth. However now you cannot launch any applications or more specifically any executables (.exe)


Fixing the association settings using Registry editor

Click Start, Run and type CMD

Type the following commands one by one:


If Registry Editor opens successfully, then navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT exefile shell open command

Double-click the (Default) value in the right pane

Delete the current value data, and then type:

"%1" %*
(ie., quote-percent-one-quote-space-percent-asterisk.)

*Interestingly some virus’s have changed the full path of default value to c:usersHomerJSimpson<yourUserAccount>appdatalocalhappyvirus.exe /runas “%1” %*

Navigate to:


In the right-pane, set (default) to exefile

*Interestingly some virus’s have added things like “sfcfile”

Exit the Registry Editor.


Fix with a com executable

You can use a com object to run the fix

Download Fix from Ramesh

reboot and all should be happy. At least with Executables.

Special thanks to Ramesh for giving me the idea on how to do this.

Despite Windows operating system has been one of the most user friendly OS available in the market, but when it comes to dealing with errors, especially Blue Screen of Death or Black Screen of Death (BSoD), which existed since Windows 9x era, have many users have found that often, there is only a cryptic set of random alpha numeric codes been shown or displayed, with no explanation or further information.

Microsoft has information and description on the error codes which users may encounter in Windows NT operating system when the computer operates incorrectly, performs illegal operating or has normal operation failure. Although means for Windows NT, the list is mostly still in used, if not identical from Windows 95 through Windows 7, although in newer versions, more error codes can be expected, in more sophisticated terms.

The wild west was one of the most interesting frontiers that our crazy forefathers decided to conquer. Those who pursued wealth fame or the all mighty easy dollar where either successful and overcome by other evils or broke and tried to make a life in a desert (semi-arid) landscape west of the Rockies.

Now a days we have the frontier of our intellect (could be argued.) or the internet. We have special tools that allow us to copy and paste and to download *FREE* stuff (video, Music, Software, Virus’s). There’s Gold in them there internets! While its true you can download to your hearts content *FREE* stuff; beware its not all free and or Gold. Some might call it fools gold. Kind of reminds me of the old adage “you get what you pay for.”. Truth is most the free stuff you can consume (download) has got some code that will make your Windows, Apple OSX and Linux Operating systems crash and burn. Possibly incurring data loss that you cannot afford to lose. Yes I said Apple and Linux too. No one gets a free ride.

Some of the more well known ways of getting your *FREE* stuff is P2P types of programs:


Lime Wire: Has been the king of the P2P networks most recently. Funny enough it offers a paid for version to make you think the content you download is not illegal. Of course the paid for version does also unlock more bandwidth and more open connections. Interestingly enough some of the open source community came out with a better app that allows for the paid version tools called Frost Wire. 


Kazaa: Was the king of P2P sharing and still is around but the service has been under serious watch by the MPAA and RIAA.



WinMX WinMX: Now defunct. Was the Largest P2P up until 2005 and then was shutdown. Most likely due to pressure or lawsuits from various copyright owners.


BitTorrent:The New Sheriff in town. However harder to understand by most non-geek types. Very much harder to track but very open and determines how many others have the same file.

Usenet: A very old distribution network. Open mostly for discussions and trading ideas became a haven for file sharing and virus sharing.

IRC Chat: Another very old distribution network. Rumored to be the networks in which when your computer is infected with a virus. The virus (usually trojan horse) gets instructions from this network.

Truth be told all of these networks spread a ton of virus’s. Please make sure you are very careful when using these networks. They will bite.


Microsoft has setup for a few selected people to become Windows 7 party hosts. Problem Solved PC Repair got the nod and now we are proud to present a invite only Windows 7 party invite via streaming video hosted here on website. images

I will be streaming using “Qik” video and will  be installing the latest and greatest Windows Version on a dual 64bit AMD processor Laptop. We will be answering questions live via Twitter at our address: as well as the Facebook page: . If you would like to be at the party I have open 8 other special guests spots. If you would please RSVP (due to special give-aways) a place. These spots are up for grabs. Contact us via twitter, facebook, MSN(Live) messenger(

A large issue with all versions of Windows is by default the Operating system is installed to not show your file extension. FolderOptions

So why is this a problem? Well since Virus developers and Script kiddies learned of this they would mask the virus file as a jpeg. So please what ever version of windows you are using please uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.

If you notice in the diagram on the left I would and do the following on every install of any Windows version I install.

-Uncheck Automatically search for network folders and printers

-Check: Do not cache thumbnails

-Bullet: Show hidden files and folders

Click apply and then Apply to all folders. Windows will prompt you to make sure. Click ok.

Now when you download a file or someone sends you a file you know what the true extension of the file.

All are done with the Win Key or Windows Key between Ctrl and Alt on the right and left hand of your keyboard.

So here goes the list:

  • Windows Logo: Start menu
  • Windows Logo+R: Run dialog box
  • Windows Logo+M: Minimize all
  • SHIFT+Windows Logo+M: Undo minimize all
  • Windows Logo+F1: Help
  • Windows Logo+E: Windows Explorer
  • Windows Logo+F: Find files or folders
  • Windows Logo+D: Minimizes all open windows and displays the desktop
  • CTRL+Windows Logo+F: Find computer
  • CTRL+Windows Logo+TAB: Moves focus from Start, to the Quick Launch toolbar, to the system tray (use RIGHT ARROW or LEFT ARROW to move focus to items on the Quick Launch toolbar and the system tray)
  • Windows Logo+TAB: Cycle through taskbar buttons
  • Windows Logo+Break: System Properties dialog box

    Of course you know the Ctrl key shortcuts:

  • F4: Selects the Go To A Different Folder box and moves down the entries in the box (if the toolbar is active in Windows Explorer)
  • F5: Refreshes the current window.
  • F6: Moves among panes in Windows Explorer
  • CTRL+V: Paste Contents located in Clipboard or what you have CTRL+C ‘d
  • CTRL+Z: Undo the last command
  • CTRL+X: Cut selected text or item
  • CTRL+C: Copy selected
  • CTRL+A: Select all the items in the current window
  • BACKSPACE: Switch to the parent folder
  • SHIFT+click+Close button: For folders, close the current folder plus all parent folders

    Last but not least the:
    General keyboard-only commands
    • F1: Starts Windows Help
    • F10: Activates menu bar options
    • SHIFT+F10 Opens a shortcut menu for the selected item (this is the same as right-clicking an object
    • CTRL+ESC: Opens the Start menu (use the ARROW keys to select an item)
    • CTRL+ESC or ESC: Selects the Start button (press TAB to select the taskbar, or press SHIFT+F10 for a context menu)
    • CTRL+SHIFT+ESC: Opens Windows Task Manager
    • ALT+DOWN ARROW: Opens a drop-down list box
    • ALT+TAB: Switch to another running program (hold down the ALT key and then press the TAB key to view the task-switching window)
    • SHIFT: Press and hold down the SHIFT key while you insert a CD-ROM to bypass the automatic-run feature
    • ALT+SPACE: Displays the main window’s System menu (from the System menu, you can restore, move, resize, minimize, maximize, or close the window)
    • ALT+- (ALT+hyphen): Displays the Multiple Document Interface (MDI) child window’s System menu (from the MDI child window’s System menu, you can restore, move, resize, minimize, maximize, or close the child window)
    • CTRL+TAB: Switch to the next child window of a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) program
    • ALT+underlined letter in menu: Opens the menu
    • ALT+F4: Closes the current window
    • CTRL+F4: Closes the current Multiple Document Interface (MDI) window
    • ALT+F6: Switch between multiple windows in the same program (for example, when the Notepad Find dialog box is displayed, ALT+F6 switches between the Find dialog box and the main Notepad window)


    Of course there are many more hidden gems. Get used to these I will give you a list of those in a future post.

    *Warning this article can tend to be very technical. However if you read it over it will help you with understanding how to correctly backup your data from the very simple to the very complex.


    See that picture? When it happens to you, it may not look quite that bad (or be quite that obvious), but data loss sucks. And it does happen. I’ve been working with computers for 10+ years, and I’ve had it happen a couple times myself. Did I mention how much it sucks?

    I’m not going to spend a couple pages telling you why you should backup, I’m just going to be straight about it, unless you really couldn’t care less if that happened to your computer, you are flat out stupid if you are not backing up your data on a regular basis.

    Instead of telling you why to backup, I’m going to tell you how to ensure that you are not going to get your data back, even if you think you are backing it up.

    Method 1: I’ll just back the data up to CD/DVD.

    Well sure, this will work for a bit, but:

    1. Ever try to save 20GB to CD? Or 250GB to DVD? Ugh.
    2. How long do you think that optical desk is going to be readable?

    Going this route, you can quickly end up trapped behind a small mountain of plastic. Or lets say you manage to somehow keep the optical disks to a manageable quantity, will the marker you labeled it with make the disk unreadable in a year, or is the dye layer unstable, rendering your disk unreadable in six months, or will the glue on the label you made for the disk make it worthless in a year or two? These are just a couple of examples of why optical media should not be considered an archive grade solution.

    Method 2: ok then, I’ll just copy the data to a USB hard drive.

    Sure it’s better than nothing, but single HDD solutions are not going to keep your data safe. Hard drives fail. In fact it will happen to every single hard disk you will ever come across. The only question is; when? It’s not a matter of if, or of MTBF (mean time between failure), it is more a matter of “you never know, it could fail in ten years, or in ten seconds”.

    Don’t get me wrong, if this is the only way you can back the data up, then it is your only choice, and it’s better than nothing. Just be aware, as soon as you copy the data to that USB HDD, the “Clock of Death” is ticking.

    Much better would be to copy the data over to a machine with a RAID storage system (preferably RAID5).

    Method 3: I bought actual Backup Software (or use a vetted Open Source solution), and run Incremental Backups (to tape!) every single day!

    Ok, so you spent some money on a tape backup solution, spent hours reading the manual and configuring your backup. Congratulations, I bet you think your data is safe! Until you find out how Incremental Backups really work (this usually happens after a disaster, and the tapes is all you have left of your illegal mp3’s downloaded movies warez mission critical data).

    Let’s pretend for a minute that your backup tapes look something like this:

    Full_backup_tape (tape 1 – doesn’t matter what you tell it to be, the first backup is always and without exception, a full backup)

    Incremental_backup_1 (tape 2)

    Incremental_backup_2 (tape 3)

    Incremental_backup_3 (tape 4)

    Incremental_backup_4 (tape 5)

    Incremental_backup_5 (tape 6)

    And then you have a catastrophic failure. So you’re sitting there at 2am merrily running the restore, and you hit a snag: tape 2 won’t read. Doesn’t matter why, the tape could be bad, maybe you left it out of the tape safe overnight, and the radio station next door managed to erase it with the magnetic waves they transmit (this actually happened), the data is gone. So is all data after it. See Incremental backups require that all tapes since the last full backup be present and working. So tapes 3-6 may as well be empty, because you are never getting the data off of them. Ever.

    If you can’t run full backups every day, use Differential backups instead of Incrementals. Let’s say that in the scenario the user had been running differentials rather than incrementals. They could then restore to current using just the original full backup, and the last differential.

    Method 4: Now I’m running differential backups to tape every single day!

    But you fail to check the backup logs every day, and the backup job you though had been running for the last year actually failed 273 days ago, and has been requesting the “correct” tape since then. I’ve seen this one a lot (in fact, I think this would be the most popular reason for data loss if you have backup software running).

    You’ve got to check your backup logs. It sucks, and it’s boring, but it’s one of those things you just have to do.

    Method 5: Alright, I’m running differentials to tape, and have been checking my logs for the last 2 years every single day!

    But you’ve never run a test restore. If you haven’t restored data from the tape successfully, there is no data on the tape. The tape was bad, the backup software failed (silently of course), the gremlins ate it.

    Method 6: Ok, now I spend two hours reading the log and then randomly restoring files from my backups (before putting the tapes in the tape safe) every single day!

    And then your server room catches fire. All machines, and the safe holding the backup tapes are destroyed. You never took any offsite, because you have a tape safe. It happens. It’s unfortunate.

    Method 7: Enough, I give up on tape! Now I run a full backup to a RAID5 NAS every single day!

    But you ordered your NAS with the drives form the manufacturer, and they used 4 HDD’s from the same batch, and two failed. This is the one that always gets them! The strength of RAID5 is that more than one drive has to fail before the RAID is unrecoverable. The weakness is that hard drives from the same batch tend to fail at the same time (or thereabouts).

    To strengthen your RAID system, always make sure that you have drives from different batches, if not from different manufacturers (this is not always the best idea, but that is an argument for another time). For instance: to take care of my backup needs at home, I bought a Buffalo Terastation. Unfortunately, Buffalo sent me a Terastation with 4 drives from the same batch (you can usually tell if they all have the same date on them, sometimes there will be a batch code on the drive). I bought 3 more of the same model drive from 3 different manufacturers, and now have the most healthy RAID I can.

    These are not the only ways to lose data, but they are by far the most common. How would I know? I was the Worldwide Manager of Technical Support for a backup software company for several years. And I always got to be the one to explain to the customers why their data is gone.

    So what do I do?

    There are as many answers to that question as there are IT shops with backup systems. Here is how I protect data at my office:

    I backup all data every day (full backup) to a NAS configured in RAID5, with a hot spare. I check the health of the RAID every day (it takes about two minutes). Once a week I backup the entire RAID to LTO3 tape, and take the tapes offsite (currently I am taking them home, where they go into a DATA rated fire safe (there is a difference, do your homework), and then into my large safe where I keep all my other valuables. My ideal would be to have them delivered to a bank safety deposit box, but that costs money.

    At home, I back up all my data to the aforementioned Terastation. Once per month, I copy all the data off to a USB HDD (actually two of them), and take one to work where it goes into the tape safe.

    Is it perfect? No. Does it stand a much better chance of keeping that data alive through a catastrophic event? Absolutely. You don’t have to go to these lengths to protect your data, but you should be aware of the risks.

    As we all know Windows Operating Systems have been hammered with people attempting to hack and send virus’s as well as Spyware(malware). We have had some good defense against these evil types of individuals with Symantec and AVG and McAffee. Even Microsoft’s Live Onecare is a great Antivirus and my favorite overall for defeating the known bad virus and identity theft software that plaques every windows personal computer.

    Recently Microsoft has been talking about a plan to create a free antivirus application for all Windows PC Operating Systems(XP-Windows 7). Today. I got a look at the latest offerings from Microsoft and its new Antivirus (Microsoft Security Essentials). This antivirus is quite nice and small (of course it is in Alpha(Alpha is pre-beta meaning it has a few bugs and needs to be cooked a bit more)) Over all the install was easy and much less intrusive than its competitor Symantec 360 and AVG in all its versions. Simple clean and easy to run.

    In my opinion this has been a feature that Windows has needed for a very long time. I will supply a link when the Microsoft Security Essentials goes beta. I am assuming the time line will be fairly soon as the rumor is September for full release.

    Until then continue to update you computers antivirus and scan for virus’s often.

    *Update: Here is the link to Microsoft Security Essentials
