How to Deal With a Computer Virus Like a Techie

Posted by on in Computers

How to remove a computer virus like techie. A list of the steps a techie would take to get rid of a virus.As someone who's been figuring out computers and all the trouble they get into for more than 20 years now, people constantly ask me questions. This time a person contacted me on my Proven Helper Facebook page regarding a virus he got by downloading torrents from the internet. Below you will find his question and my response. I hope that it helps other people out there who downloaded a virus somehow, or opened up an attachement in an email that later infected their PC.

And don't be fooled by the media, all computers including Mac's, Smartphones, and even your car computer can get viruses. Just remember that a virus is simply a program written by a prankster, hacker, or enemy who wants to fool with you, ruin your day, or extort money from you. It doesn't matter what computer you use, there's a techie out there that knows, tested, and continues to create new viruses for it. That's the unfortunate truth, now lets get to what was asked, and my email back to the fan of the Proven Helper YouTube Channel.

 

QUESTION: Hello. I read the information you've put in your videos and I'm glad to know that you're welcome to answer the questions. I've got this problem 2 days ago. Everything began with downloading IDM by torrent. after that lots of viruses occupied my system. I think they are rstray.exe and ravmon.exe Chinese programs. Before I downloaded the torrent everything was ok. Whatever I try to do something on my computer, It just doesn't work. If I want to change permissions, I get access denied. If I want to end a process by using task manager, it doesn't work. Even if I want to delete a file, it won’t let me delete.

Affordable and Awesome Gifts for Men

Posted by on in Holidays

Every year just before Christmas,  I spend countless hours scanning the internet for bargains on cool gift ideas. My criteria is simple, it has to be something that no one I know has, and something that I would honestly love to receive as a gift.

For this years treasure hunt, I have already hunted down 10 awesome but surprisingly affordable gifts ideas that any guy or real cool girl would love to unwrap on Christmas, or their birthday.

I have to tell you that these gift ideas were all over the web, but thanks to Jeff Bezos and his unquenchable thirst to sell one of everything on earth, you can find all of the goodies below on Amazon.com. It kind of blew my mind to find it all there, and at a cheaper price to boot. But come on people, we're talking about dealing with Mr. Crazy Pants Jeff Bezos here, he would sell you unicorns if he could.

Top 10 Home Automation Gadgets to Buy For Christmas & Birthday Gifts

Posted by on in Holidays

Useful Home Automation Birthday & Christmas Gift IdeasThe holidays are right around the corner, and if you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably started – or at least thought about – your holiday gift shopping already. It can be difficult sometimes to put together your holiday shopping list – it’s not easy to figure out what to give your spouse, parents, in-laws, etc.! And then to think that, after you’ve spent time and money thinking of and purchasing a gift, sometimes it might never be used. Or, worse, it could one day be re-gifted (we’ve all done it!). So this year, why not give your loved ones gifts that they’ll actually use?

Home automation gadgets are the answer. In this age of ever-evolving technology, we live in a world that is constantly connected and plugged in. Home automation products take the latest and greatest technology and connect your home directly to your favorite devices, like your new smart phone or tablet, making your life much easier (and much more high-tech).
