Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool

Download : Download Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool ( Free ) Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk   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 u

All is Fuzzy

This is an excellent starter for all fuzzy logic programmers. By Seshi from New Zealand, read the original text here: Introduction Download source - 395 Kb Yay, my second article for code project. Like my first article this one was also one of my assignments for AI at university and I thought I'd try this one out in WPF using C# as well. Fuzzy logic - a dictionary like description: "Fuzzy logic is a mathematical approach to problem solving. It excels in producing exact results from imprecise data, and is especially useful in computers and electronic applications. Fuzzy logic differs from classical logic in that statements are no longer black or white, true or false, on or off. In traditional logic an object takes on a value of either zero or one; in fuzzy logic, a statement can assume any real value between 0 and 1, representing the degree to which an element belongs to a given set. The human brain can reason

Biomimicry to the Rescue

  We have a tendency to name software entities after biological creatures whose behaviors they remind us of – think of viruses in general, or worms. Now a bunch of computer security geeks are coming from the other direction, taking inspiration from nature’s creatures for the next weapon in the never-ending war against malware and viruses… few species are more effective at responding to intrusions into their system than the ant, after all. Unlike traditional security devices, which are static, these “digital ants” wander through computer networks looking for threats, such as “computer worms” – self-replicating programs designed to steal information or facilitate unauthorized use of machines. When a digital ant detects a threat, it doesn’t take long for an army of ants to converge at that location, drawing the attention of human operators who step in to investigate. The concept, called “swarm intelligence,” promises to transform cyber security because it adapts readily to changing thr

To Hell and Back

  Yesterday I had a frightening experience settling disputes between Avast Antivirus Free and Daemon Tools Lite 4.40. In the end I admit, it was horrible experience for me. The problem remained. I had Daemon Tools Lite installed on my machine. I was using Avast Antivirus Free 5.x. I had no problems. Avast released their latest upgrade as 6 series and I downloaded it and installed it. An additional bonus in this was the Sandbox and Auto Sandbox mode which isolates programs to prevent the spread of infection to the rest of the machine. Expecting rock solid integration of Avast I installed it, updated it and restarted it. The problems I faced were as follows: - Blue Screen of Death – Just before the logon screen is displayed, the BSOD popped. The error code was 00000x7f( in hexadecimal). On the BSOD it said some problem with the ahcix86.sys file. I was speptical. If that indeed was the case, safe mode would not work either So first I restarted it and logged into my secon

Simple (but short cut) to Borderless Forms

  Pros: Simple, easy to Program Easy to understand for the beginner Cons May flicker as controls are drawn and redrawn Windows seems not to like this method much :) Insert this code snippet in your form that you want to be movable :   #Region "Declarations" Dim m As Integer = 0 Dim n As Integer = 0 Dim isMouseDown As Boolean = False Dim isMouseDownAgain As Boolean = False #End Region #Region "Form Events" Private Sub Form1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseDown If isMouseDownAgain = True Then     isMouseDown = False     isMouseDownAgain = False          End If          m = MousePosition.X - Me.Location.X          n = MousePosition.Y - Me.Location.Y          Me.Location = New Point(MousePosition.X - m, MousePosition.Y - n)          If isMouseDown = True Then     isMouseDownAgain = True         Else     isMouseDownAgain = False End If isMouseDown = True End Sub Pr
