Top 10 reasons to use Solid State Drives?

Solid State Drives, SSD

Solid State Drives, SSD

Should you spend lots of money on Solid State Drives?

If you’ve heard much about computer hardware, then you’ve probably heard about SSDs. Solid state drives (SSDs) use flash memory to deliver dramatic performance gains compared to mechanical hard drives. Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are prone to failure, they offer a wide range of cost-effective benefits to nearly every computer user. On Facebook, we asked our fans to help us compile a list of the top 10 reasons to get an SSD. Here’s what they said.Before you buy an SSD, decide if it’s going to replace your current hard drive,  or if you’ll keep both the old and new drives, letting the Solid State Drive supplement the spinning platters. If you’re supplementing, you can get away with a smaller SSD and therefore save money. (As I write this, $60 can buy you a 120GB SSD or a 2TB hard drive.)

But supplementing the drive may not be practical. If you have a spare drive bay in your PC—common in desktops but rare in laptops—you can easily supplement. But if your Desktop has space for only one hard drive, replacing the drive will likely make more sense.

Have a tech question? Frank Alegre @ 305-710-3960

If you’re supplementing, you need only an SSD large enough to contain Windows, your installed programs, and maybe a handful of commonly-used documents.  Everything else should remain on the spinning hard drive.

Yes, the hard drive will slow down the PC when compared to one with only an SSD, but not by much. Since all of the files you’re regularly using are on the SSD, the performance hit will often be non-existent and rarely noticeable.

My test computer (a homemade desktop with a lot of bays) has a 120GB SSD. It has Windows 7 Ultimate installed, along with a huge number of programs (I use this computer to test software), and 14.2GB of documents, songs, and photos in the libraries. And that doesn’t quite fill up two thirds of the drive.

If you don’t have a spare bay, replacing your hard drive with an SSD makes a lot more sense—even though that means buying a larger, and therefore more expensive drive.

How large should you go?

The obvious answer: At least as large as your current hard drive. But that could be too expensive, take a good look at your current drive drive. Is it half full? If so, consider a smaller drive, although choose one that’s still large enough for reasonable growth.

If that’s no cost effective enough,  then,you can still use a smaller, supplemental SSD. After you remove your HD, put it in a USB enclosure, which effectively turns it into an external hard drive. And keep that external drive plugged into your PC, so you can access files that didn’t fit on the SSD.

But there are two problems with this approach: First, the external drive will make the laptop a little less portable. And second, access to files on the external drive will be considerably slower, especially if your laptop lacks a USB 3.0 port.

The top 10 reasons to get  Solid State Drives (SSD)

If you’ve heard much about computer hardware, then you’ve probably heard about SSDs. Solid state drives (SSDs) use flash memory to deliver dramatic performance gains compared to mechanical hard drives. Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are prone to failure, they offer a wide range of cost-effective benefits to nearly every computer user. On Facebook, we asked our fans to help us compile a list of the top 10 reasons to get an SSD. Here’s what they said.

 

        #1: Faster everything.

  • “Faster boots and faster program loads compared to a hard drive.” — Hiren P.

    Imagine clicking on a program and having it load immediately. That’s the power of an SSD. SSDs also enable “instant on” performance — the ability for your system to boot almost immediately. Since SSDs don’t have to mechanically seek out data on a moving platter (as a hard drive does), they help your system achieve instant-on performance.

    #2: Seamless multitasking.

    “Faster backups, faster antivirus full system scans, faster everything!” — Ruben F.

    The improved data access capabilities of an SSD allow you to toggle multiple programs with ease. From backing up your data to running antivirus system scans to accessing apps, websites and playlists, an SSD enables you to multitask like a pro — with little to no lag time.

    #3: Increased energy efficiency.

    “Lower energy consumption.” — Jason C.

    Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts, they require less energy to operate and can increase the life of your laptop’s battery.

    #4: Better system cooling.

    “Low temperatures when in use.” — Leon C.

    Since SSDs access data using flash memory rather than seeking it out on a spinning platter like a hard drive, they’re able to maintain more consistent operating temperatures, which can help keep overall system temps down.

    #5: Less fan noise.

    “No noise, [and they] run cooler as no moving parts to generate heat.” — Joe B.

    Since SSDs stay cooler than hard drives, your fan doesn’t have to work as hard, which means less fan noise and quieter overall performance. That humming sound you heard when using a hard drive? Gone.

    #6: Increased durability and reliability.

    “Higher survival rates after a drop/accident … that alone is priceless. Anyone who has ever had to do data recovery knows what I’m talking about.” — Lisa C.

    Since SSDs don’t have small moving parts that are easily susceptible to damage, they can be thrown around and still retain your important files and information. Designed to reliably store your data for years, SSDs offer additional shock and vibration resistance for travel-tested durability.

    #7: Flexible storage.

    “You can use them like a flash drive if you have a hot swap bay or dock.” — Nicholaus R.

    SSDs are available in multiple form factors, and some form factors (like mSATA) are able to plug directly into your system’s motherboard, allowing the drive to act as a cache drive or to work alongside your existing hard drive. What’s more, with a USB cable, you can use an SSD like a giant flash drive — just plug it in!

  • #8: Better gaming.

    “Faster load times in games so you are the first to load into a battlefield.” — Travis D.

    For gamers, the faster data access speeds of an SSD help enable faster load times, so you can spend more time playing and less time waiting. Many gamers love using SSDs because it means they’re a step (or a load) ahead of the competition, giving them an increased chance at first strikes and a more seamless gaming experience.

  • #9: Easy installation.

    “Waiting is overrated.”

    With our step-by-step videos and install guides, installing an SSD couldn’t get any easier — no computer skills necessary! Just grab a screwdriver, your system’s owner’s manual, and one of our Easy Install Kits and we’ll walk you through the process.

  • #10: More time for what matters.

    “To me, it’s pretty simple: the main reason to get an SSD is to save time. Be it booting up, loading applications, general OS responsiveness or intensive operations, a good SSD will save you time so you can focus on what matters.” — Jesse P.

    Since computers are used to accomplish a wide variety of personal and professional tasks, the increased speed and efficiency of an SSD means that you’ll have the ability to get more done in less time. Life moves fast — your computer should too.

How to Fix a Virus Infected Computer

How to Fix a Virus Infected Computer

How to Fix a Virus Infected Computer

How To fix a Virus Infected Computer

These days malicious software is becoming an epidemic. It seems like it’s everywhere. Also, there’s been a change in the way Malware / Virus  acts. It used to be that it would slow down your computer, or display annoying popups, but now malware is becoming increasingly discreet. You could be infected right now ,and not even know it. Also, it often seems as if the only way to make sure you’re not infected is to scan your computer with numerous anti-malware programs. Doing this can be time  consuming and, while scanning, may even slow your computer to a crawl. Even after that you still can’t be sure you’re clean. This is because scanners cannot recognize all new malware.

2. How To fix a Virus Infected Computer

 Because of these difficulties I have come up with a better method. This uses multiple programs, not to remove files, but just to analyze the computer. Each of these programs is very effective and easy to use. They are all portable applications and will not cause any conflicts on your computer because they are only running when you’re using them. However, they do require an active internet connection to function properly. Don’t worry, these steps will also help you to fix your internet connection in the event that it is not working. After you have already gone through the below process once, and had all files whitelisted, this approach is much faster, much more certain, and much easier than any other approach I’ve seen. No active malware  / virus can escape this process. However, inactive pieces of malware may not be flagged by this approach but may be found by other scanners. Rest assured that these are not direct threats to the safety of your computer and thus do not constitute a failure of this article. These are some of the scanners I run while a repairing an infected computer.

1.  Malwarebytes Premium

2.  Hitman Pro

3. ComboFix

Even after a Virus infected computer has been removed from a system many of the problems caused by it may still remain. That said, one of the first things you should do in order to fix any of these problems is to make sure that all infections have actually been removed. Read my article  to find out What Is Malware. If you know that you still have infections on your computer then, instead of trying to fix problems while the virus  infection still present, you should first remove all virus/malware infections. To do this please see my article about How to Repair your Computer before seeking IT Support.

3. How To fix a Virus Infected Computer

Once you have confirmed that your computer is entirely free of malware you should then back up all of your important files. This way if anything goes wrong while fixing the computer, which is a very real possibility, your important documents will still be intact. There’s one more thing that I always do after a virus / malware removal  and it’s to make sure you tune up your computer, One of the best free software’s out there is Ccleaner it’s very safe to use, just make sure you always backup your registry via Ccleaner software.  or see another option, my article on How To Tune Up Your System

Finally,  Stop thinking that a free antivirus will safe you in today’s Virus World,  that will never happened.  If you want to be safe from Trojans, spend the money on a a real antivirus I recommend  Malwarebytes Premium .

What is Malware?

Malware is short for “malicious software.” Malware is any kind of unwanted software that is installed without your adequate consent. Viruses, worms, and Trojan horses are examples of malicious software that are often grouped together and referred to as malware.

Malware is one of the most dangerous threats that people should always try to eliminate in  their computers/laptops especially while using the internet. It can  destroy /corrupt  computer systems in an instant when not prevented or eliminated immediately. Cyber criminals can  use malware as a tool in the process of monitoring the online activity of their targets while using the  power of internet. All the dangers that malwares can create in the daily living of internet users are not limited to that extent. This is because malwares can be used also to steal the personal information of an internet user without spending a lot of effort.

How to help protect your computer from malware

There are several free ways to help protect your computer against malware:

Warning: Cybercriminals sometimes try to trick you into downloading rogue (fake) security software that claims to protect you against malware. This rogue security software might ask you to pay for a fake product, install malware on your computer, or steal your personal information.

Don’t click links in email messages and avoid websites that offer free software—especially free antivirus software. For more information, see Watch out for fake virus Alerts.

How to Detect Malware?

Detecting Malware is one of the most effective ways to prevent malicious software from entering the system of a personal computer or any website that’s always connected to the internet. The following are the steps on how to detect malware more efficiently:

  • Check Computer Status – there’s a possibility that a personal computer has been infected by malware if its excellent performance changed negatively in an instant for an unknown reason. One of the negative effects of malware in the performance of a person computer is poor power-efficiency. A personal computer that has been infected by malicious software loses more power while functioning.
  • Examine Unusual Things – a computer that shows more pop-ups from time to time and crashes instantly while in use has been infected by malware

How to Avoid Malware

There are so many ways to prevent malware in a computer. Try to follow all these steps in order to avoid malware more effectively:

  • Install anti malware software and update it regularly – security software is always important in the process of protecting a computer from the negative effects of malware. It provides extensive protection against viruses, malware and spyware that can make the daily living of a person miserable when not eliminated instantly.
  • Don’t download anything from suspicious website – free downloadable software, games and applications usually contain malware. Such reality is very common in all products that suspicious websites can offer.
  • Ignore pop-ups – pop-ups usually contain download links where malware can be extracted instantly.

 

How to Eliminate Malware?

Eliminating malware has never been too easy. There are so many important factors to consider in its processes to attain positive results. The following are the steps on how to eliminate malware more effectively:

Click here for more inf. on how to remove Malware

  • Update the Anti malware Software – a security tool is very useful when it comes to the process of minimizing and eliminating the negative effects of malware in a person computer.
  • Reformat the Computer that has been infected (Optional) – it is necessary to execute this step if the condition of the infected computer is already at the worst level.
  • Restore all Programs and Files – a backup file can help a person restore all files in a personal computer in a very excellent way just in case the malware that has been detected in its system is no longer available.

20 Troubleshooting Steps To Diagnose and Repair your Mac OS X System

Macbook Repair Miami

Macbook Repair Miami

Steps to Diagnose and Repair your Mac OS X System.

1. Restart

Restart  your system, Many of the times this very simple process resolve many of your issues.

2. Check/fix the file system

There are many different ways to do this. You can boot off the OS X Installation CD, run Disk Utility, and select Repair Disk. If you don’t have access to the CD, you can also run the UNIX           command fsck from the Terminal in Single User Mode. The specific sequence of how to do this varies depending on what version of OS X you’re running. Go to Apple Support for specific instuctions.
Disk Utility will report back whether or not there were any problems, and whether or not it could fix any problems. If it is unable to fix a problem, then you need to get a 3rd party utility, or reformat the disk before doing any other troubleshooting. NOTE: reformatting the disk will erase it, so a 3rd party utility is usually a better idea.

You can also use a 3rd party utility like DiskWarrior or Norton Disk Doctor These 3rd party utilities can fix some kinds of errors that the free Apple tools cannot. (But don’t ever install the Norton components on your hard drive – just run the tools by booting off the Norton CD.)

If there were errors that needed to be fixed, and your software reports that they were all successfully fixed, you may have solved your larger problem.

3. Make sure you’re not running out of free space on the System volume

When the system is running out of memory, it needs to write swap files to your hard drive. If your hard drive is already almost full, then the system will bog down into unusability. Keep tabs on how much free space you have on your boot disk by getting info on that disk in the Finder. Alternatively, you can use the excellent freeware DiskSpace application, which will give you a display of free space on your menubar.
You should have at *least* 500MB to 1GB of free space at all times. Realistically you would want more than that, especially if you plan on burning CD/DVD’s. Remember that even if you have more free space than this when you first booted, swapfiles can eat up diskspace quickly – 2GB or more of swapfiles is not unheard of. So it’s a good idea to have at least 3GB of free space immediately after booting.

To fix: trash unneeded files and applications off of your System volume to free space. And try to create fewer swap files by adding more RAM or running fewer applications simultaneously. Restarting will temporarily get rid of all swap files, but they’ll come back.

4. Repair permissions

Run this in Disk Utility in your normal login. Open Disk Utility in the Applications/Utilities folder. Select the boot drive ( probably “Macintosh HD” ), click on the First Aid tab and click the Repair Permissions button. See if this cures the problem.

5.  Create a new user account. 

You do this by creating a new user in the Accounts tab of System Preferences, logging out of your main account, and logging into the new account. If this makes the problem go away, it means the cause is in your user account.

While it’s good that we know approximately where the problem is, unfortunately there’s a lot of stuff in the user account to pick through. And now you will have to do some serious troubleshooting. Oftentimes, this will be a preferences file in ~/Library/Preferences/. If you can pinpoint that one bad file, you’re done. If you have no idea what’s going on you can try the laborious process of keeping that new account you made, and bringing over the files one by one until you find the one that was the problem. Even easier is to ask an expert if it’s a frequently seen problem, first letting them know that it was a problem in your user account.

6. Clear system & user caches

Use a third party tool like Cocktail or Disk Warrior / Panther Cache Cleaner  to deep clean all caches. Reboot. See if this cures the problem.

7. Disable Application Enhancer, if you’re running it

Haxies from Unsanity. They’re great, and they’re pretty well programmed, but they’re hacking the system in non-standard ways. Unsanity claims that APE will be disabled by holding down the shift key while logging in. However, if you want to be ultra-safe about it, download the APE installer from Unsanity and use the ‘uninstaller’ option to remove all traces.

8.  Startup in SafeBoot mode, and see if the problem continues

You do this by holding down the shift key during bootup. If this makes the problem disappear, then it is a problem with Extensions or StartupItems. And most likely, those would be 3rd party Extensions or StartupItems. Most of those are kept in /Library/Extensions/ and /Library/StartupItem/. Move those items to the desktop, and see if you can isolate which one was causing the trouble. There are also some 3rd party extensions that are *annoyingly* installed in /System/Library/Extension/, however you must be very very careful mucking around in there, as almost all of those Extensions are supplied by Apple, and your machine will not function without them. Use common sense, and ask the experts.

9.  Reset Firmware

Resetting your firmware will reset all firmware settings back to factory defaults. Things like the boot rom, power management, etc. are found in the firmware. To do this hold down the following buttons on your keyboard at boot up: cmd+opt+O+F. Once in open firmware type these commands:

reset-nvram (hit return)
reset-all (hit return once more, the system should reboot)

10. Unplug all USB, Firewire devices except Apple mouse

Reboot with everything unplugged. If this makes the problem go away, then you have a bad external device, bad cable, or bad port on your computer. Try to isolate which one it is. Be especially wary of USB hubs.

11. Reapply the latest combo updater

Download the latest OS X updater from Apple. These updaters come in 2 flavors, an updater which will only update the next most recent version of the OS, and a combo updater, which will update all versions since the last paid update. You want the combo updater. It will be labeled as the combo updater, and it will be much larger than the normal updaters – around 80MB at this time. Find the updater on Apply the updater, even if your system version number is already up to date. See if this cures the problem.

12. Run the Apple hardware diagnostic CD

Boot off the CD by restarting while holding down the C key on the keyboard. See if you get any useful information.

13.  Check the hard drive for bad blocks

One way of doing this is to try to re-initialize your drive using Drive Setup from the OS X Installation disk. Unfortunately, this will wipe out all of your data, so back up first, if that’s the route you go. If the initialization fails, your disk is worthless garbage and must be replaced.

You can use the TechTool Deluxe CD that came with the Apple Protection Plan to check for bad blocks. Norton Disk Doctor will also allow you to test for bad blocks without erasing your disk using the Check Media option. Other 3rd party disk utilities may allow this as well. Hearing odd noises coming from your drive is a tip-off that this may be your trouble.

14.  Take out 3rd party RAM

See if this cures the problem.

15.  Unplug 3rd Party PCI cards

If this solves the problem, replace the cards one by one until you identify the problematic card. Contact the manufacturer to see if updated drivers are available.

16.  Reset PMU

The PMU’s (Power Management Unit’s) location, and how to reset it, varies by machine. Go to Apple Support to find out how to do it for your particular machine. See if this cures the problem. Typically this will fix issues when your system will not power on.

Make sure you only hold in the PMU button for a second. DO NOT hold it in for any longer and DO NOT press it more than once. If you do this it could result in corrupting the PMU itself.

17.  Archive and Install OS X

This will archive user/network settings and replace your current system folder with a new one. Boot off your OS X cd and run through the install as normal. Once you get to the screen where you select which hard drive you want to put the OS on there should be an options button under the hard drive. Select it and then select the archive and reinstall button. Then proceed through the install as normal. This may or may not fix your problem, and it can save you time from copying back ups back over, resetting user preferences, and reinstalling applications.

18.  Reinstall the system from scratch

This step is annoying and time consuming, which is why we’ve saved it for second to last. It requires erasing your hard drive, so you’ll have to either back up, or lose, all of your data.

19.  Send the machine back to Apple

This step is very annoying, very time-consuming, and if the machine is out of warranty, can be very very expensive. So try a couple of the other steps first. Call Apple Support to arrange a pickup or locate an an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

20.  Additional Notes

Uninstall Antivirus Products if you’ve installed them

I have ran my Mac for the past 7 years  and still never seen a Virus until today.

Check your error logs
Check your system logs to see if there is anything relevant to your problem listed there. To do so simply go to the apple menu and select about this computer. A window will pop up displaying some basic information about your computer. Click on the more info button at the bottom of the window. This will bring up Apple System Profiler (ASP). The last tab furthest to the right of the ASP will be labled “Logsâ€? click on it and then select console. It should list error messages related to each application you are having problems with.

Start your system in verbose mode
Start up your computer in verbose mode, hold down cmd+V at start up. You will see the a bunch of text scroll down the screen as everything starts up. Look for anything that gives an error message and record it. Try doing Google searches, or search forums to see if the problem has already been discussed and a known fix has been established. A lot of times you can find fixes on these forums, they are a great tool.

ESD safety is important when working inside your computer
You do not want to damage any component when removing it. Refer to the manual that came with your computer, or Apple Support on the web.

How to Repair Windows 8

How to Repair Windows 8

 

Windows 8  comes with new tool called Automatic Repair and like its Window 7 predecessor , Automatic Repair is designed to intercede at the first hint of an operating system start-up problem. When a start-up problem is detected, the Automatic Repair will launch an automated, diagnostics based troubleshooter that does not require user intervention, and in many cases it will resuscitate an un-bootable system.

If the start-up problem is severe enough to prevent Automatic Repair launching on its own, you can launch it from a Windows 8 Recovery Drive.

Running Windows 8 Automatic Repair

Running Automatic repair from the Recovery Drive is easy. After your system boots from the Recovery Drive and you follow the Troubleshoot | Advanced options path through the menu, you’ll see the Advanced options screen shown in this figure. Among the tools found on the               Advanced options screen, you’ll see Automatic Repair.

On the Advanced screen, you’ll find four other tools that you can use to recover a damaged Windows system.

When you select the Automatic Repair option, you’ll see the screen

Your first line of defense when it comes to recovering a Windows 8 system is the Automatic Repair option.

Once you launch Automatic Repair, it will begin diagnosing the start-up problem and you’ll see the screen shown

In the first step of its operation, Automatic Repair will diagnose the problem.

During this diagnostic phase, Automatic Repair will scan your system and analyze the various settings, configuration options, and system files looking for corrupt files or botched configuration settings. More specifically, Automatic Repair will look for the following problems:

  • Missing-corrupt/incompatible drivers
  • Missing-corrupt system files
  • Missing-corrupt boot configuration settings
  • Corrupt registry settings
  • Corrupt disk metadata (master boot record, partition table, or boot sector)
  • Problematic update installation

If it detects any of these types of problems, it will automatically attempt to fix them, as shown

Once Automatic Repair has diagnosed your startup problem, it will attempt to repair it.

If Automatic Repair can fix the problem, it will do so without any intervention. It will then restart the system and boot normally.

Computer Repair Pembroke Pines Fl. “How to Avoid Computer Viruses in one Simple Way”

Computer Repair Pembroke Pines Fl.

7 Steps on how to Avoid  Computer Viruses Computer Repair Pembroke Pines Fl.

Signs that your Computer has been infected

This Blog has been design by Computer Repair Pembroke Pines Fl. to help users to stay save from Computer Viruses

 

1.  Slower than Usual System  When you noticed that your desktop or laptop is starting to slow down in performance, this should definitely be a heads up. Make sure your paid antivirus software is up to date.  and if possible run some additional Virus scanners.

2. Random connections to unknown websites.  You’ll get an alert from your legitimate anti-virus software telling you that an application is trying to connect to a website you’ve never heard of. If not, you will         automatically be directed to those websites

3.Unexpected images. You might see popups of pornography images or softwares for sale, or Companies advertising their products,  or even a unknown antivirus Programs  scanning your system, That is a true sign that          your have being infected the Spyware.

4. Avoid clicking on everything. There are thousands of popups, and banner ads  on the internet that are designed to grab your attention and make you click. Due to the way most  browsers work, there are very few     ways for you to get infected with something online UNLESS you click on it  yourself.  Meaning, you should avoid clicking on banners for offers that  are too good to be true.

  • Make sure your browser is configured to always ask before running files and downloading automatically. If you have to confirm everything, you are much less likely to get infected.

5. Clear your Browser cache. Popups will store information in your browser’s cache, leading to them reappearing constantly. To help prevent this, clear your browser’s cache regularly. I personally do it every two to three      days.

 

6. Install an antivirus program. A Paid  antivirus program will actively protect your computer from virus infections by scanning active programs and performing scheduled full-system scans. There are free antivirus    programs that come with basic virus protection, such as AVG, Antivir, and Avast, but trust me they offer minimum protection. I personally use Kaspersky Antivirus, or Kaspersky Internet Security.  I have found by  experience that this is by far offers the best protection for Window’s Operating Sytems. ( If you need to obtain a license  contact me $25.00 as opposed to buying it out there for $65.00 and Up)

  • You should only have one antivirus installed at a time in order to avoid conflicts.
  • Scan your computer at least weekly, more often if you are heavy internet user.
  • An antivirus program is not a foolproof system, and should not replace good browsing habits and common sense.

Keep Windows updated. Windows OS as well as Softwares are very vulnerable and many viruses and other malicious programs exploit holes within them. These holes are quickly patched by Microsoft, and updates are made available for all legitimate copies of Windows. if you don’t keep your copy of Windows updated,  your system will be exposed. In order to ensure that you’re always protected, make sure that Windows is set to update automatically.

  • If you are using Windows XP, upgrade immediately. Support for Windows XP will end on April 8, 2014. This means that any exploitable cracks found after that date will no longer be fixed, and Windows XP will become very insecure. For more information please contact us for free advise at 305-710-3960

 

7.  Consider a different browser. I personally stay away from Internet Explore due to its vulnerability. Browsers such as Firefox, Chrome,  and Opera are much more secure  Firefox, for example, has a large array of  privacy and security add-ons  that will help protect you online.

  • If you don’t want to switch browsers, make sure that it is always up to date  to help prevent virus attacks.
