Microsoft Security Essentials officially launched

Posted: 30 Sep 2009 11:26 AM PDT

Microsoft Security Essentials, Security suite and antivirus freeware from Microsoft, has been officially launched today.  Not too noticeable changes in their interface but with minor fixes as of in Beta.

Although there are now many spinning antivirus applications, several of them really good, it is true that Microsoft Security Essentials has improved a lot since that distant first alpha release.

Just launched, the application will check for updates of virus databases available on the Microsoft website, then scan your system for viruses. A scan in Windows 7 RTM only took me 4 minutes for a 320GB disk (if it is not completely full and the initial scan is fast one).

Should have found a virus-which fortunately did not happen-is the option to leave the quarantined files, and as the system is clean, Microsoft Security Essentials has so marked and left the warning icon in the tray green system. Then, right click on the tab can reopen the options to schedule scans, or to define the action to execute in case you find any problems.

Another aspect intersante Microsoft Security Essentials is its real-time scanning of all files that arrive via email in JPEG, MPEG, AVI, or ZIP. And before each scan, the application is responsible for making a point of remedy to any problems later.

Microsoft Security Essentials can be used in Windows XP (32 bit) and Windows 7 and Vista in 32 and 64 bits, and although it is not an  revolutionary antivirus, no doubt we could say that fulfills its purpose of maintaining security.

Posted: 30 Sep 2009 10:39 AM PDT

Tata Docomo is enjoying success like anything! I guess all of you might have atleast one TATA Gsm sim card as of now. After the success of one paisa Tata docomo tariff plans , they have now shifted their concern towards the Internet and GPRS plans.

Users whose mobile is EDGE enabled can also surf using the docomo. As of now , Airtel was the Giant for the people who were using internet both on mobile and PC or Laptop but it seems that Docomo will overtake Airtel’s market and customers who actually were/are buying Airtel Sim cards for internet use only. Such portable net connections give users accessibility on their own wish and also one can activate, deactivate as per his needs.

Tata has introduces 15 Rs and 95 Rs limited data access plan for which you have to recharge your docomo sim cards with Rs 15 and 95 special EVD recharge which are available at your retailer. Please note that validity of Rs 15 is for 3 days only with the free usage of 20 Mb and that for Rs 95 plan is for 1 month with 100 Mb of free data usage.

How to install setting on my mobile phone?

For the setting you just need send "INTERNET" to 52270 which is toll free number for Tata Docomo users. Within 5 min you will receive setting message, just save that 'TATA DOCOMO DIVEIN' setting to your phone and you are done. Most of the people are confused with the APN. Let me clear you after activating your setting just select you APN as DOCOMO internet.

Didn’t get Settings? Set it manually, you can edit any of the previously available setting on your phone of any ISP follow the following steps:
1) Connection Name : select any name that you wants to ( Let us select "Tata docomo")
2) Data Bearer : GPRS
3) Access Point Name : TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET (Most important)
4) IP Address : Either select it as automatic or blank
5) Do not edit rest of the setiing, leave them as it is.

Now if you want to use Internet just simply connect data cable to your PC or laptop and start surfing using connectivity option from your PC suit of respective mobile companies. In the same fashion Bluetooth will also works. You can also do the same thing if you don't have PC suit just by creating Dail up connection.

Wordpress is the best platform for Blogging and a constantly developing too. Plugins add extra fnctions or features making your site more productive. I am providing the list of top 10 wordpress plugins that every blogger must have.

Many of you may be using most of them but it will serve as good one for newbies and startup wordpress bloggers.

1. All in One SEO Pack

Some features:

  • Canonical URLs
  • Fine tune Page Navigational Links

  • Provides SEO Integration for WP e-Commerce sites
  • Nonce Security

  • For advanced users, you can fine-tune everything
  • You can override any title and set any META description and any META keywords you want.
  • Backward-Compatibility with many other plugins, like Auto Meta, Ultimate Tag Warrior and others.

2. Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 can manage multiple contact forms, plus you can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple markup. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and so on.

3. Google XML Sitemaps

This plugin will create a Google sitemaps compliant XML-Sitemap of your WordPress blog. It supports all of the WordPress generated pages as well as custom ones. Everytime you edit or create a post, your sitemap is updated and all major search engines that support the sitemap protocol, like, Google, MSN Search and YAHOO, are notified about the update.

4. Add to Any: Share/Bookmark/Email Button

The E-mail tab makes it easy to share via Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, AOL, and any other web-based e-mailer or desktop program. The Add to Favorites button (or Bookmark tab) helps users bookmark using any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc.).

5. Akismet

Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not and lets you review the spam it catches under your blog’s “Comments” admin screen.

6. WP Super Cache

This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.

The static html files will be served to the vast majority of your users, but because a user’s details are displayed in the comment form after they leave a comment those requests are handled by PHP. Static files are served to:

  1. Users who are not logged in.
  2. Users who have not left a comment on your blog.
  3. Or users who have not viewed a password protected post.

7. Google Analytics for WordPress

The Google Analytics for WordPress plugin automatically tracks and segments all outbound links from within posts, comment author links, links within comments, blogroll links and downloads. It also allows you to track AdSense clicks, add extra search engines, track image search queries and it will even work together with Urchin.

8. Popularity Contest

Popularity Contest keeps a count of your post, category and archive views, comments, trackbacks, etc. and uses them to determine which of your posts are most popular. There are numerical values assigned to each type of view and feedback; these are used to create a ‘popularity score’ for each post.

The values assigned to each view and feedback type are editable and can be changed at any time. When you change any of these values, the ‘popularity score’ for all posts are updated immediately to reflect the new values.

9. WP-PageNavi

All the information (general, changelog, installation, upgrade, usage) you need about this plugin can be found here: WP-PageNavi Readme. It is the exact same readme.html is included in the zip package

10. GD Star Rating

GD Star Rating plugin allows you to set up rating and review system for posts, pages and comments in your blog. You can set many options for displaying the rating stars, and also add widgets into the sidebars for displaying top ratings and other statistics generated by the plugin. Plugin includes advanced settings panels that will allow you to control many aspects of rating. Plugin also supports multi ratings along with thumbs based ratings

This is not all, there may be some more important than these according to your type of site or specific use. But, the mentioned here can be used as primary functionality and for enhancement purpose.
