Where's My PC!? 1.2.8 (Windows) According to Safeware Insurance Agency in Columbus Ohio, (Safeware.Com) more than 600,000 laptops are lost, (or stolen) each
year, with a recovery rate of less than 2%. When you lose your computer, you lose a lot more than just the few hundred dollars
the computer was worth. You lose the photos and videos of your children, (that can never be replaced). You lose your college
thesis or the business report you've been working on for the last 6 months. (You know, the one that was going to get you that
big promotion?) Regardless of what you've got on your computer, losing it is always a BAD thing. So, why
not do everything you can, to protect your investment ... For FREE?!
Where is My PC!? is a simple utility designed to help locate lost or stolen computers. It works by registering the computers
IP address in a database at user defined intervals. The user can then access the database remotely, via the portal. The user
can then trace that IP address, using any number of free web services and determine the computers approximate location. Local
authorities will be able to use that IP address to determine the EXACT location of your PC, and hopefully recover it. This
program automatically runs in the background when the computer boots up. You can access the user interface, or close the application
by clicking the icon in the system tray. The interval between IP updates can be set, using the in-program settings menu. Once
set up, “Where is My PC!?” is entirely autonomous. It runs silently on startup and requires absolutely no user-input,
so you can just set it and forget it. And at only 500KB, meaning, that it's small and compact enough, to run constantly in
the background without decreasing system performance whatsoever.
To be perfectly honest, “Where is My PC!?” software is not entirely unique. There is other software out
there, that does the same job. Some of it's good, some of it isn't. Some of it's free and, some of it, is not so free. “Where
is My PC!?” is absolutely 100% FREE. There's no “Pro Version” that costs $x.xx every month and there are
no annoying 'pop-up' ads built into the program. You
don't need to sign any contracts, or provide any personal information. The bottom line: this program does what it says, without any problems ... FREE. Format: Software Size: 951 KB Cost = FREE Platform: Windows http://survivetheapocalypse.org/Wheres-My-PC.php http://survivetheapocalypse.org

A Cool FREE Tool, For Repairing Seriously Infected PCs
“AVG Rescue CD: A Powerful Toolset, For Rescue
& Repair of Infected Machines.”
(For Windows XP, Vista and 7)
Every PC user has to deal with 'malware' at some point. Quality security programs are the first line of defense. And they
can block or remove nearly any infection. But no system is perfect. Occasionally, a really bad piece of malware comes along.
It could wreak serious havoc. If it's bad enough, even starting the computer might be impossible. If you can't start your
computer, how do you fix it? Most people will never run into something like this ... But It DOES Happen! Fixing
it requires a different kind of tool. That's what 'AVG Rescue CD' is for. It contains various antivirus and anti-spyware tools.
You can burn it to a CD. Or you can install it on a thumb drive. Then, instead of booting into Windows, you boot from your
CD or thumb drive. The anti-malware tools can be used to recover your system. You can clean out everything, and then get back
(NOTE: This is NOT a program you run from within Windows ... It must be burned to
a CD, or installed on a USB drive. You can then boot your computer into the program. For detailed instructions on how
to use it, visit this AVG page.)
You can download the AVG Rescue CD from the download section for free. There are two files you can download - ISO file and RAR/ZIP archive. The ISO image can be used to burn a CD or DVD. The archive can be extracted on USB drive.

* Microsoft "Essentials" FREE Anti-virus Protection Now Available -- Off
'Beta' As the name 'Security
Essentials' (MSE) implies, Microsoft's new security software removes the bloated bells and whistles found in other products,
(like Microsoft's discontinued 'Windows Live OneCare') and provides only the essential protection. Taken in the context of
the Windows operating system, providing antivirus protection may be all that's necessary. Windows already has a firewall.
Windows has the 'Windows Defender' antispyware tool. Internet Explorer has features to detect and identify Phishing and other
potentially malicious websites. So, for Microsoft to incorporate anything more than a stripped down antivirus capability could
be considered overkill. Third-party security vendors have lined up to alternately bash MSE as inadequate and slam Microsoft
for throwing its monopolistic weight around. They can't really have it both ways. Either Microsoft made a good product and
its dominance of the PC operating system is a threat to the security software industry, or MSE sucks and they've got nothing to worry
about. (BTW, MSE is Compatible With the upcoming Win 7 OS.)
