PROS

  • The Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool is a completely freeware antivirus.  This news may come to one’s surprise because Kaspersky normally charges at least $29.99 for a one-year subscription.  The entire antivirus engine is contained in one executable file.  New files are released on almost a daily basis that contain exactly the same definitions files as the full version.  In addition, the removal tool includes a self-defense feature that prevents the application scanning from being interrupted.
  • The user has the option to scan all portions of the hard drive including removable disks and even hidden startup objects.  In tests, the scanning mirrored a standard Kaspersky scanning experience almost exactly.  A quick autoscan only took about 4 minutes while a full system scan took about one and a half.  These times are very reputable and easily compete with most free antivirus.  A user will also be alerted to new antivirus definitions that have been released within the last few days.

  • The only thing that the removal tool lacks is an automatic removal capability.  The tool supplies a “manual disinfection” feature that hooks up with an online virus removal community.  Users on the forms will be able to assist a user with a specific and personalized removal code.  This is almost better than an automatic removal found in most antiviruses because an expert user will be able to analyze the system information and will have the opportunity to remove additional malware/problems that may have not been detected in a standard scan.  This whole process is like having HijackThis with a removal code capability that an experienced user could fix within seconds.

Manual Disinfection for the Kaspersky Virus Removal TOOL

  • The removal tool also includes many advanced settings.  These settings include heuristic analysis that can be adjusted to a low, medium, or high setting.  The real settings treat lies in the capability to detect rootkits.  Kaspersky Virus Removal tool even includes the capability for a deep rootkit scan.  Free AVG, a “full featured free antivirus”, does not include even a basic rootkit detection capability.  The removal tool even includes program vulnerability protection against unpatched programs.  Finally, I also liked the capability to configure a maximum or minimum archive size to be checked.  I have run into problems with other scanners that scanned huge iso files for hours.

CONS

  • There are a few problems with the Kaspersky Removal Tool.  The first is that the program does not completely install on the computer.  In order to run the program, a user will have to launch the installer everytime.  The installer is also somewhat annoying because there are multiple menus in which a user has to hit the “next” button several times.  The executable should just have an auto launch capability.  Finally, everytime the program closes it wants to uninstall the removal tool.

   Regardless of the downsides, the Kaspersky removal tool is a crucial antivirus tool that utilizes the venerable full version Kaspersky virus definitions for the low cost of $0.

Sri Sri & Homosexuality – Another media hit job in the making

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (henceforth named as Mr. Shankar) is not new to controversy. Not even with topics like homosexuality. What the event wasAt an event in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Ravi Shankar gave a talk on the occasion of the Nehru Memorial lecture on 13th November, 2017. One among the audience lamented that he was ill-treated since he was known to be a homosexual. Then Mr. Shankar stated that he needed to accept himself as he was and love knew no boundaries. Let’s see and hear what he said…Let’s quote Mr. Shankar verbatim as reported by some of the newspapers.
You treat yourself better, doesn’t matter how others treat you. You don’t think you are sick or something’s wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you… But if you feel weak and meek, and if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.’ Indian Express reported this in addition as well. Let me quote it directly here as well.
This is your tendency now. Just acknowledge it and accept it, and kno…

Once again in Mirik

This is a guest post by my mother, Lily Ray Gangopadhyay.

Once again in Mirik after 17 years, I felt very nostalgic because when we used to visit this place, my sons were little kids. Mirik is one of my favorite places. In 17 years it has obviously changed a lot, but still it remains sparsely populated,little crowded and a clean place.



Dad striking a pose (caption by Sarthak) Since this hill station is not at very high altitude one can enjoy a very comfortable stay here and the roads are very inviting.The lake is the main attraction of this place, the Buddha monastery,view point are very nice. I was lucky that the weather was so clear that Mt. Kanchenjunga was clearly seen all the time. Just for a restful walking around the lake, sitting on the grass and gazing at the bushes of pine and fur trees and the peaks of the Himalayas, this is my most preferred destination.

Salesmen of God

Christian evangelicals are similar to parasites[1]. The similarities are simply astounding. Among all predatory religions, Evangelical Christianity has done, by far, the greatest harm to humankind[2]. Like leeches, the Evangelical sucks the lifeblood of an unchristian society till it descends either into chaos and incessant civil conflict or the relegation of the culture to the pages of history(Bowden, 1985). Even in the 21st century this unashamed activity continues(Bhosle, 2003).[3]
Evangelicals usually have a similar methodology when it comes to proselytization. Like parasites, the target is usually one belonging to the most vulnerable section of society. This does not necessarily mean that they try harvesting only the most down trodden of the society(Kelly, 2001). And most certainly, the objective is never the upliftment of the persons involved. The target groups may, for example, belong to ethnic minorities, refugees (both economic and political), caste groups, the poor and the si…
