  1. I personally use Windows Defender only at current. I was using Macafee that came with my laptop though the trial expired. Windows defender didn't used to be as good as it is now. Has improved and worth trying. A good spyware remover if your computer is running slow, probably the best one. Is the free Adwcleaner you can get on CNET. Search "Adwcleaner" spelled excactly like that in Google. It will take you to a download on CNET. Run that baby and your computer will never suffer from spyware again. Does wonders to fix spyware slow-down issues. And it's free. Which do you use?
  2. What is/was your favorite version of Windows? I will always be partial to Windows XP. I have so many childhood memories involving Windows XP. It still stands out as the most innovative OS from Microsoft in my view.
  3. Just received an email just recently about some Windows 11 featured laptops Best Buy is now selling upgradable at the end of this year or early next year. It has Windows 10 on it when you buy it but still super excited for the speed boost that will come with Windows 11. Cannot wait to see how it also improves the Xbox Series X. More-so, Linus Tech Tips released a YouTube video previewing it with his work bench and it looked quite interesting to me. The icons are much smaller and the minimized windows at the bottom of the screen are all centered. You should be able to upgrade your Windows 10 installation soon I suspect.
  4. A lot of you need off-site database backups on the fly. Well with Windows Live Mail you have that option by using this email script attached below for your database. Be noted this script only works with cPanel. Windows Live Mail is a mail client that can receive your emails from any mail server or email and keep them without leaving a copy of them on the parent server. I use it for emailing my database backup to me once ever 6 hours. You can have it sooner than that if you have the right script. Download the script below in the attachments and try it for yourself. When you set it up, simply do this. Go to Windows Live Mail and click Accounts > Properties > Advanced > uncheck leave a copy of message on server. After doing that you'll be setup to receive the emails only to your mail client so you won't be taking space up on your email. I use my website admin email to receive the backups and then have it transferred to Windows Live Mail. For many this will be the best option. Do note that gmail and yahoo has a limit for attachments. Cloud storage can be an option for some if you have that, however I have not tried this method. So for most of you the best method will be using your admin website email. You also don't need an mx entry for the mail to be sent. I will now explain how to use this backup script and also I have provided it as an attachment for anyone who decides they want to use this Windows Live Mail method. I assure you the method is a very smart and good way to keep your database download available as it goes directly to your PC and doesn't even stay on the server when following the instructions above. First off you'll need to download the script provided in the attachment. Next use a coding editor like Sublime Text or notepad++ to edit "backup.php". This is the file you'll need to edit. It's a few simple edits just so you can put in your database details. When you see it you'll know what to edit. But for the sake of knowledge I will tell you specifically. Edit the database username, database password, database name, sendfrom, and sendto areas. In the sendfrom area you need to put your website host name in the brackets where it says "admin@hostname.com". In the sendto area you need to put your admin or webmaster email address. For most people it would be admin@domain.com or whatever your site is. After that ftp the files to your server. Once you do that make sure "backup.php" has file permissions settings of 777. After you set the file permissions on backup.php all that's left is to edit your CRON file so that the system knows how often and knows when to email you the backup. You will need to download puTTy or have SSH access to edit your CRON. If you are not familiar with pUTTy search it in google and download it. The rest is self explanatory. You simply put in your ip address and login as the root user. If you don't have a VPS or dedicated server and you have shared hosting you'll need to ask your host to do this for you. Okay once you have puTTy open type this command. First part is for setting the CRON editor so you can edit the file. There are a number of editors you can use. I chose nano because it's the easiest to use. Second part is to actually open up your CRON: export VISUAL=nano; crontab -e Now the cron will come up. You can search on google how different timings work for the cron. I will show you how to get it mailed to you every 4 hours. Feel free to set it up for another time period. I'm also putting path/to/file in place of the location of backup.php. You'll need to change the file path if it's somewhere else. In your cron file, type this on a blank line: 0 */4 * * * php -q /path/to/file/backup.php > /dev/null 2>&1 Now the php -q part is for setting the php path so your system knows what kind of file it's going to execute which is a php file. Without it you'll receive a lot of emails from the cron daemon saying that it doesn't know the file path so this is important. The next part "> /dev/null 2>&1" is just to keep emails from being sent to you about the cron edit. You still may receive some once in a while but it's mainly meant to keep that from happening. Now after you've done this you will receive the email of your database to Windows Live Mail (if you've followed instructions above and signed in with your webmaster email) every 4 hours. If you want to test for 1 minute to see if it works you can use this cron setting instead and just replace the above with this (remember to set your real file path to backup.php) before changing it to what you want: */1 * * * * php -q /path/to/file/backup.php > /dev/null 2>&1 And there you have it. The best database backup solution on the planet. Receive an email with your database to Windows Live Mail any time period you choose and uncheck leave a copy on server to that it only goes to your computer. And nothing stays on your server. Directly to your computer only. I hope this helps you guys. If you need support setting it up just let me know and I will do my best to help.
