A Review Of RegistryFix

Software Description: Registryfix will scan your system registry and hard drive for invalid file and system references. These invalid references may cause system instability, PC errors, constant crashes, and general system slowdowns.

The Good: Registry Fix is a simple and easy to use registry scanning utility. It will scan your system registry and hard drive for invalid file and system references, which may cause system instability, PC errors, constant crashes, and general system slowdowns.Registry Fix includes options and features that will help keep your computer running lean and mean, such as a well equipped registry scanner, startup program manager, add/remove program manager and registry backup utility. All of these options are easy to use and accessible within 2 clicks of the main menu. Registry Fix has some advanced options that many people will want in a registry scanning utility; most options in the program are simple and intuitive.

The Bad: It can be difficult to find the backup options because they are located in two different areas of the program, and there is no automatic backup when repairing. That is to say, this application is not convenient to run for its complexity for those who know little about registry.

The Bottom Line: Registry fix will scan for errors related to ActiveX controls, DLL issues, Windows explorer errors, Windows installer issues, Internet Explorer errors, System32 errors, Runtime errors, Outlook and Outlook Express Errors, EXE errors, Svchost errors and a wide variety of other system issues. The software will inform you where the errors exist, and what potential errors they might cause as well. But it lacks common safety features like automatic backup and error severity. In the overall scheme of things, this is a good product that will help keep your computer clean and run well.

What To Look Out For When Choosing The Right Anti-Virus Software

When you have a computer, it is very important to protect your computer and your files from viruses that are all over the Internet. But how do you choose the anti-virus software that is right for you? Here are some steps, provided by Rob Smith from Dev4 – a leading software development company in Aberdeen, Scotland –  that you can take to find the right anti-virus program for you and for your computer.

The first thing that you have to do is figure out if your computer already has software for security on it. Very often you will find that you are able to upgrade to the latest version by taking time to download files or even requesting a DVD to be sent in the mail to you. If you have it already, contact the software provider through email or telephone.

The second thing that you want to do when you are choosing an anti-virus program is to get to know your computer. You want to know what versions of hardware are going to work with the different anti-virus programs. It helps to do some research online and find out what products are better than the others for your computer.

The third thing to do is to get an anti-virus program that will include either anti-spam or anti-spy ware features, since this is going to increase your protection. You will find that this will give you several good advantages and fewer headaches.

Fourth, if you cannot decide which one you should choose, look online for the reviews of the different anti-virus software that you are considering and see what other people think about them. Often times most users will rate the different anti-virus software by the protection, ease of use and what they liked and did not like about …


Cloud Computing In The HR Marketplace

In the HR workplace today there are many benefits to using cloud computing applications. The average corporation uses a ratio of one human resource professional to every one hundred employees and considering that many corporations are either international or perhaps dispersed across a large country, HR teams are often not all based in the same place. Additionally many people now work remotely, a perk often given by companies to appeal to those wishing to avoid a long commute, or who don’t want to place young children in daycare. Having employees work from home is also environmentally friendly, since it reduces the number of cars on the road; however, it can be very costly for businesses to set these employees up with their own hardware and software licenses and it can also be logistically difficult to service both hardware and software when an employee is not situated in an office, with an in-house IT support team available. This, of course, leads to one of the main benefits of using cloud computing applications.

They negate the need for costly hardware that can host a large software application (cloud applications are hosted on the cloud so companies do not need to provide the server space for hosting); an IT support team (cloud application providers take care of technical support); software licenses, and software installation, period; the cloud can be accessed from anywhere, anytime.

Furthermore, the HR department typically deals with sensitive information; having this information securely stored on a remote server reduces concerns about loss of information, should the company experience a breach of security or damage from fire, water or a natural disaster. HR application provider, Shift iQ, protects its data centers from these perils with the use of the latest VESDA smoke-detection technology and FE-25 clean-agent fire-suppression technology.

What Free Anti Virus Protection should you Use?

If your computer connects to another computer in any way at all – through shared storage media of any kind, through the Internet or through a common network, you can be somewhat sure that your computer is exposed to malware of some kind. Last year, when the StuxNet worm swept through the world’s computers, it was noted how it seemed to be attacking lots of computers that didn’t even connect to the Internet. Thumb drives and all manner of other things make it possible. The thing is, there’s just no need for this. There’s so much free anti virus protection available that’s exactly as good as the paid stuff (not that the paid stuff costs anything much).

Search on Google for free anti virus protection, and you will fairly be overwhelmed by the sheer range of choice. Just about every paid antivirus company out there from Avast to AVG, from Avira to Ad-Aware, has a free product out there (is it just me, or do antivirus makers prefer names that start with the letter A more than anything). Best advice? Get a good expert like experienced Aberdeen IT support  company, Pisys.net – they can help out in most cases.

Of course, as much as is available, you can have a bit of trouble making the correct choice. Which way do you go?

Your antivirus needs two kinds of ability. It needs the ability to detect viruses on a computer already present when it is installed, and it needs to be able to detect new threats that appear after the installation occurs. Most people don’t think of it this way. They think that if antivirus has one kind of ability, it’s a given that it will perform well the other way too. Well, we’re going to rate popular free anti …
