Guarding against viruses and other vulnerability issues are some of the basic things you need to do to keep your files safe and secure; but this is not going to come that easy if certain measures are not taken as soon as possible. One of the things you can do is to protect your system with a security program. Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your computer.
What’s the big deal about Microsoft Security Essentials?
Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It is a free download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.
Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times.
Does it have any downside?
Microsoft Security Essentials no longer supports Windows XP, and may not be top notch when it comes to detecting malware.

You know that feeling when you think you just can’t get any work finished?
There’s just way too many distractions, right?
FORCEdraft is a straightforward text editor that is not going to let you get distracted by online stuff until you’ve completed your work. Start the application and you can now tell it to block every little thing on your computer until you have typed a specified amount of words, or even a specified number of minutes has gone by.
Make your selection and FORCEdraft opens up in a full screen mode. There isn’t any interface, the actual program is more basic than notepad, or even the textual content box in a website form (copy and paste is disabled): So all you are able do is type.
The main trick at this point is you can’t go off to look at everything else. If you hit the Win key: absolutely nothing happens. Ctrl-Shift-Esc to start Task Manager? No. Alt-Tab shows running applications and it will let you select one, however when you release the key, FORCEdraft goes full screen just as before. Read the rest of this entry »
Corel Painter is similar to a limitless artists toolbox – at the center of the application are its many complex brushes, which convincingly imitate natural media.
Previous versions saw the release of Real Watercolor and Real Oil brushes, which basically allow you to watch paint dry.
In contrast to Painter’s standard fare, Particle Brushes don’t replicate analog tools. Quite simply, if you’re a purist and you really like your art to look as if they have been hand drawn, you may well struggle to come up with ways to use a few of the new Particle Brushes.
One more area which has been improved upon is speed: Corel says Painter 2015 is about 40 % speedier compared to its precursor, Painter X3. Nevertheless, a few of the brushes are processor-intensive, particularly the previously mentioned Real Watercolor. it was still in a position to slow Painter 2015 to a crawl on a powerful PC when rapidly painting several strokes using a Real Watercolor brush. As soon as the paint completely finished drying, Painter returned to its usual speedy self. While jitter, which is basically adding some randomness on to the strokes, isn’t a new comer to Painter 2015, it’s been improved upon. Read the rest of this entry »
