Computer Tips [ The Best Free Anti-Virus Software + Say Goodbye To The Blue Screen Of Death + Tuvalu Is Sinking ] 05/07/2009


Quick Tips

Don't buy that domain!

Domain registrar and hosting company Go sells all sorts of domain extensions like .com and .org for their customers to suffix with, but have you ever heard of the extension .tv? No, it doesn't stand for television, although that would make the most sense. The .tv extension is actually for the islands that comprise Tuvalu, a small independent country not too far from Fiji.
Why do I mention Tuvalu, and what does this have to do with the Internet? Well, check the picture below and tell me what you think.

It would appear that the islands of Tuvalu are sinking! A tide gauge installed by the University of Hawaii has been measuring sea rise for the past 30 years and has calculated a 1.2 mm rise in the ocean every year. At only 4.5 meters above sea level, any slight rise in the waters could spell disaster for not only the crops and people of Tuvalu, but also the .tv domain name.

WARNING: Make Sure You Have The Volume Turned DOWN Before you Plug These in!!

These Portable Speakers Are A "Concert Hall In a Box"!!!Folding Speaker System

I'VE GOT TO TELL YA WHAT HAPPENED when we first got these in. I Plugged these into the headphone jack of my desktop computer and clicked on an Internet radio station to get some music.BUT I didn't bother to check the VOLUME LEVEL of my computer! When I turned on the power to these portable speakers, it startled me so much, I JUMPED ABOUT A FOOT OUT OF MY CHAIR!


I'm tellin''re gonna be surprised how POWERFUL this little speaker system is! Whew!!!

What's funny is this speaker system is actually made so you carry it around with you wherever go. They're about the size of an eye glass case and the speakers themselves fold up and tuck safely away inside the hard-shell case. So when I first saw these I thought, "These are so small! How POWERFUL could these actually be? Well, I found out quick enough...PLENTY POWERFUL!!! These things ROCK...and you're gonna love 'em!!!

What I like about these is that they work with ANY AUDIO DEVICE that has a headphone jack! So you can use this with your mp3 player, satellite radio, laptop computer, CD player, portable DVD player even portable game! (The kids will LOVE to hear their gaming devices take on a "BIG 3-D sound!)

PLUS, you don't have to plug these into an AC electrical outlet because they work on four "AA" batteries, so you can play your audio devices just about anywhere! which makes 'em REALLY convenient! There's a audio cord that's neatly attached to the speakers, and you just plug that into whatever device you want to listen to! And when you're done, just unplug the cord and tuck it back into the case! THAT'S A REALLY A GREAT idea not only for easy travel but to protect the speaker system, too!

What's REALLY AMAZING about these speakers is that YOU CAN EVEN USE THESE WITH YOUR DESKTOP COMPUTER! How's THAT for versatility! So, if you don't have a set of speakers for your desktop computer or you're not happy with the ones you have, before you rush out and buy a more expensive set of speakers, PUT THESE to the test just like I did! You're gonna LOVE the sound! Plus - you'll be saving yourself a LOT of money!

And the "icing on the cake" is that you'll ALSO have a FANTASTIC set of portable speakers that you can take with you anywhere and play your portable devices! Oh man!!! How sweet is THAT? The only thing that can make this even sweeter is an amazing price - $14.97 and US shipping is FREE!!! Is that crazy or what???

I've heard small computer systems that were in the $40-50 range that didn't sound HALF as good as these beauties! These are something you're gonna want to have for home AND on the go so grab one now at this crazy price!

P.S. - BIG SOUND for on the go! So go grab one before they all go out the door!

Computers 101

I was looking around in my Add/Remove Programs area in the Control Panel and I found something on the side that said "Set Program Access and Defaults." What does this mean and should I even mess with it?

It's interesting that you asked this question, because a co-worker of mine here at WorldStart actually pointed this out to me awhile back. I guess it must have slipped my mind though, because I never did anything about it. So, I guess it's time to redeem myself, because after researching this feature, I thought it might be something a lot of you would be interested in. So, let's check it out together!

First of all, this feature can only be found in Windows XP and you need to have Service Pack 1 or higher. If you're using anything lower than that, this will not work for you. Again, what we're talking about is called "Set Program Access and Defaults." You can use this feature to change the default programs you use for certain activities you do while on your computer. For example, such activities as simply surfing the Web, sending e-mails, playing CDs or using instant messaging programs.

Now, before I go into any more detail, I need to tell you that you must have Administrator rights to use this feature. Otherwise, you won't be able to change any of your default programs and that will just defeat the whole purpose of this tip. If you're not sure how to get Administrator rights, you can read this article for some help. Also, if you use a Windows XP Professional computer that is part of a network, you must be logged in as the Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to be able to do this. The same goes for those of you who use Windows XP Professional or Home Edition computers that are not part of a network. You still need to be signed in as the computer's Administrator in order to change the default program settings.

Okay, once you're all set with that, go to Start, All Programs and then find the choice that says "Set Program Access and Defaults." (You can also get there by going to Start, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. On the left hand side, you'll see the choice for "Set Program Access and Defaults"). Once you're there, you have four options to choose from. They are:

1.) You can restore your program settings to what they were when established by the manufacturer of your computer. If you want to do that, click on the Computer Manufacturer choice. Now, this option is only available if the actual manufacturer put Service Pack 1 on your computer and set allowances for those settings. (If you're not sure on that, you may want to contact your manufacturer or look for some information about it in your computer's manual).

2.) If you want to set your program defaults to fit the needs of the activities you do on your computer (like the ones I mentioned above), click on the Microsoft Windows choice. With this option, you will be able to access both Microsoft and non-Microsoft programs from your Start menu, your desktop or any other location you may choose on your computer.

3.) Now, if you want to use non-Microsoft programs as your defaults, click the Non-Microsoft choice. You can then just select the options that you want. Now, keep in mind: This configuration does remove your available access to other specified Windows programs.

4.) The last choice is to combine the non-Microsoft and Microsoft Windows options. This one is under the name of Custom, so if you'd like to do this, click it. You can then select the options you want to set for your computer. By doing a custom setting, you can pretty much do a combination of all the above choices. That includes being able to access your programs from your Start menu, your desktop and any other location you choose.

Once you have all your settings in place, click the OK button and everything will be ready. In case you were wondering, my computer is set to Custom, because with that, I have the most control over the way my programs act on my computer. You can (and should) choose for yourself, but that's my opinion. Alright, now that you know what this feature is, go and get your programs to do what you want them to do, all in a few easy clicks!

MS Office

Let's Take a Look at the Layout

I don't know about you but I find myself constantly rearranging the preset layouts I find in PowerPoint.

Frankly it can be annoying after a while - knowing that I'm pretty much setting up the same thing more than once.

I could duplicate the slide I created first but then I have to delete all the content.

I could bring a slide from another presentation into the current file - but then again there's the content to get rid of on top of the time it takes to locate the file and then the slide I need.

What I'd really like is to be able to create my custom slide layout and have it appear alongside all of PowerPoint's preset layouts - so when I insert a new slide I can just choose it from the beginning.

Well, with PowerPoint 2007 I found that I could make that wish come true.

In PowerPoint 2007 if you go to the View tab of the Ribbon and click the Slide Master button you'll have access to the Slide Master tab.

On the left side, in the Edit Master section you'll find a button labeled as Insert Layout.

Clicking this will insert a new slide into the slide master list of them and allow you to design it as you wish.

To add elements to your layout click the Insert Placeholder button and choose an element to add.

Once it's in your slide resize, rearrange, whatever you desire.

By default PowerPoint will name it "Custom Layout". If you'd like to name it something different click the Rename button (next to the Insert Layout button).

Give it a new name and click Rename.

When you finish with everything click Close Master View.

Now take a look at the layouts available from the New Slide button on the Home tab. (Click the bottom half of the button to see your choices.)

See it?

My custom slide layout is now listed among the rest and is as easy to use as everything else.

And… just one more idea… if this is a layout you'll need often then maybe you'll want to save this presentation as a template so it's easy to access whenever you please.

Amazing 8GB Micro-Hard Drive!Verbatim Store-n-Go 8GB USB 2.0 Mini HD

Take All Your Stuff With You!

Way Cheaper Than A Flash Drive -

And Better Lookin' Too!

You've Just Gotta Try This!

Others Charge $80-$138 For It -

Our Price Is Lower Than Ever - Just $19.97!!

These are just the coolest little hard drives we've ever come across! Not only are they about as good lookin' as a hard drive can get, but they are really tiny too! Just wait till you see yours :-) You're gonna LOVE 'em!

This works just like a flash drive - only it doesn't set you back as much money! Just plug it into your computer and it will show up as an external drive under My Computer. From there, simply drag and drop your files! Works on any XP or Vista computer - no drivers required! WOW!

Why not free up extra room on your computer's Hard Drive? Yeah...instead of jamming EVERYTHING onto the computer (you know...the one you never seem to get around to backing up!), why not keep all your favorite music, photos and other important stuff in one nice, convenient spot?Plus that way, you've got everything together when you want to show uncle Bob all the latest photos from your last vacation?

Oh, and these are FANTASTIC for backups too! You probably have loads of documents, information, spreadsheets, family photos, and music that you just can't afford to lose - Why not back 'em up onto a couple of these handy little drives? Makes it MUCH easier to keep track of and for the price you just can't go wrong!

Or if you've got SOOO many tunes you just "can't live without" and you're juggling three or four thumb drives- well STOP IT!!! (Besides, you're bound to loose one of 'em, poke an eye out or do something else that every mother in the world seems to warn their kids about doing!) Do the smart thing and keep them all together and neat all in one place! (Besides, your mother will be so proud!)

Anyway, in addition to the HUGE amount of capacity, this mini-HD is FAST! (USB 2.0 with data transfer speeds up to 480 Mbps!) So when "Uncle Bob" says he just has to have copies of those pictures, BAM! plug right into that USB port and you're done!!! Oh, and this comes pre-loaded with Mobile Launchpad, which is the start menu for your USB HD Drive! So no need to think about drivers, and all that. Again, this baby is 100% Plug 'N Play so you can Rock 'N Roll!!!

And, of course, we can't leave out the fact that this Mini HD looks gooood! Sleek, slick, compact,,,what else do you need.

Oh, and this comes with its own USB cable, a Quick Start Guide AND a travel wallet. (Can you say, "Accessorize"?)

These are going to go out the door in a hurry! I'd say grab one or two while you can for yourself...maybe even one as a gift if we still have any. Also, we just found this exact same drive at for $73.82 after shipping! Grab 'em from us for just $19.97 and US Shipping is FREE! Here's the link:

PS...You KNOW you're gonna need more storage - grab a couple of these today! Save $118!!

Do You Have a NEW Cell Phone, MP3 Player or Digital Camera?

or Would You Like An Easy Way To Protect The Ones You Already Have?

(Pssst...Here's a Suggestion: PROTECT YOUR LCD SCREENS!!!)

Those screens are EXPENSIVE to replace (actually to do it would cost about as much as to buy a new device!) but VERY Inexpensive To Protect!

You probably spent a TON of money on your equipment. And I'm sure you're VERY CAREFUL in how you treat it. BUT, let's face it..."Life Happens!" No matter how careful you are, it's pretty easy for some dirt or a piece of grit to fall on that LCD screen, you don't see it and..."SCRAAAATCH"! (May not sound as bad as finger nails going down a chalk board...but it will bring tears to your eyes!) Next thing you know...that"really neat" device just became a VERY EXPENSIVE PAPERWEIGHT!

The good news is that doesn't have to happen AND it's VERY EASY (and inexpensive!) to prevent!

Say "Hello" to, "Screen Protectors"!

These are an ingenious, simple little concept. Transparent, protective sheets, specifically designed to cover the screen of your handheld electronic devices! They come 5 to a package. They measure 3" x 4.125" so they fit most any screen that size, they're easy to customize and simple to put on. And they work!

And these can be used with just about any handheld electronic device like:

Cell Phones
Digital Cameras
Portable Game Systems

Let me tell you a really helpful "side benefit" of these protectors:they help reduce screen glare!!!

Here's the part you'll get a kick out of: I just did a search and found these at a VERY POPULAR "Big Box" store for...are you ready for this: $20 AND $29.00!!!

What??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Actually, if they save LCD screens of your handheld electronic devices, it's worth it. But you don't need to spend that much...not even close! about $5.97 and US shipping is FREE!!! "Expensive LCD screens" on one hand..."Inexpensive Screen Protectors" on the other. Hmmm...pretty clear choice. You do the math....When you're done, here's your link:

PS - Don't miss out, I'm still cheaper than the big boys tomorrow, but it is going to $10.97 tomorrow morning!

Whatever You Do - Don't Buy An External Hard Drive!

Make One Yourself And Save BIG!

Super Easy! Anyone Can Do It!

Great Way To Give Your Old Hard Drives A Reason To Live!

SimpleDrive 3.5 I'm so excited! We just got a jaw-droppin' deal on some do-it-yourself External Hard Drive Cases! I've used these in the past (a lot, actually), and I've saved literally HUNDREDS over buying the "prefab" deals at the stores! Super easy too - my 7 year old can do it!

OK, so how's this work anyway? Glad you asked! Really easy - we sell you this great little case, you take an internal Hard Drive (IDE connection) and just plug it in. Put the case back together (a few screws - not hard), then plug it in! That's it! When you plug it into your computer's USB port windows will AUTOMATICALLY install the drive and list it under MyComputer! It's just like plugging in a GIANT flashdrive! It's THAT easy!

From there, just use it like any other drive! It's an absolutely fantastic idea for extra storage or backups!

PLUS, like I say, this can save a TON on money! There are two ways to do this - The first is to watch for a sale on internal Hard Drives at your local electronics store. You can get HUGE drives for less than $100 all day long! I've seen them for less than $40 after rebates and such! You get them for WAY less than external drives since you're not buying some snazzy case.

The second way these save money is letting you give new life to old hard drives! You know how it is - you have that old computer sitting in your closet - there's nothing on it you need anymore, it's really not worth anything, but you're worried about throwing it away. Why not salvage it's old HD and stick it into this handy case? You instantly have an external HD - for less than $20!

Now, I know you may be a little worried about having to assemble something like this, but trust me, it's easy. If you've ever used a screwdriver and plugged a lamp into the wall, you're qualified! You simply take any IDE drive up to 750GB, in plug the power cord (inside the case), then just push it into place! A few screws later and the case is assembled! I put mine together in less than 5 minutes! Really! Still not sure? I'll make you a deal - if you can't figure it out, you can call out tech support and they'll walk you though it!

OK, ready for the deal? We have these on sale today for just $18.97 and US shipping is FREE! This can save you TONS of money on external drives! Easy to do, cheap, and quick! Grab one, grab a dozen - for this kind of money you just can't go wrong!

PS - It's never been easier - or cheaper - to make your own external HD! PLUS - if down the road you decide the drive you started with is too small, you can always just take this apart and "upgrade" it yourself in a few minutes! Don't miss out!

Today's Feature

Avira Antivir

I've always been a big fan of knowing what is the best. As a matter of fact, I look forward to the monthly arrival of my Consumer Reports magazine so I can read all of the comparisons and ratings, just to keep my edge.

Well, this month's issue arrived just a couple days ago and the headline title was about computers. You can only imagine my excitement! I raced to my recliner and settled in for some enlightened reading time. I was about half way through an article when I came across ratings for Anti-Virus software. The most interesting part was that they rated free programs as well as paid programs. Since I am always looking for great free programs, this little section was right up my alley.

Now that I'm done telling you about my Saturday, I'll get to the point. Last year consumer reports rated AVG the number one free anti-virus software on the web. Since then, I have recommended it highly. Now, it seems that a new king has been crowned. This year, the magazine rated Avira Antivir Personal Edition the number one free antivirus on the web.

Since it got such a good rating, I decided to check it out. It is a very nice program for the money (or lack of money in this case). So, if you are looking for free, basic protection you should check out Avira. It's simple to install and easy to use. It also provides some pretty good protection for a free product. You can download it here:



Special Note: Although Avira is a very good program, it is not as full featured as the many paid AV suites out there. If you are looking for basic, free protection, Avira is the place to go and it is definitely better than nothing. If you are looking for a full suite, you might want to look into a paid product.

Love is Respect

This is a cause I can really get behind. As a survivor of dating abuse, I know now how much this sort of site could have helped me when I was in the midst of it. Being a teenager is a hard time – you have all those hormones rushing, peer pressure, and you can easily find yourself in a tough spot.

But now there’s help, this site can help educate your teen so that they know what exactly dating abuse is. And while I’m specifically talking about teens, please realize that this kind of abuse can happen to anyone at any age.

What constitutes as abuse? Well check out the Is This Abuse tab. This section covers what is considered abuse. You can also learn about what makes a healthy relationship, and even see if you might be abusing your partner. More importantly, this section provides you with a toll free number to call if you need to talk or you can chat online from 4 pm to 2 am in the morning.

So you’ve figured out you’re in an abusive relationship. What do you do now? Check out the Get Help section. You can learn how to help a friend stuck in a cycle of abuse, how to talk to your teen that might be in a bad relationship, and what actions you can take to break free of the relationship.

Finally, check out their amazing Resource Center. There you’ll find a Teen Dating Awareness Toolkit. Learn more about the Love campaign, and even get Dating Abuse Fast Facts.

In my case, I wish I’d have had access to the help line. I felt like I was all alone, and that there was no one out there who would help me. Things had to get really bad before my instincts said it was time to get out of the relationship. Especially with the mental abuse, you start to believe the things the other person is saying to you. I hate to see that happening to other people, so I’m really happy to see that a site like this exists now.

Remember in all your relationships – love is respect. Pass this one on.

Thanks for understanding that we need to prevent the nasties.

Terms of Use

Personal & Educational Use Only This blog consists mainly of FREE newsletters from computer web gurus that I receive. I thought you might like to see them all in one place than try to discover them on your own. A moderate amount of editing may be done to eliminate unrelated repetitious ads or unnecessary text which bloat the post. However I have given the authors full credit and will not remove their site links because you deserve to see where it comes from and they deserve to get credit for what they have written. Your use of this site is simply for educational purposes. For more computer-related help go to: CPEDLEY.COM for free software, advice and tips on low cost products which are very helpful. If you want to contact the editor, please go CPEDLEY.COM and check the Contact page for email address.
