Need of Boot scan

Boot time scan is run before starting any pc application by an Antivirus software. Some time our PC gets infected by a threat due to our own mistake such as if we disable real-time Antivirus protection or our Antivirus is unable to detect threat due to outdated virus definitions. In some cases it may be possible that Antivirus is unable to delete or quarantine the threat in running condition. In this condition scheduling a boot time scan can remove the threat.

How it Works

When we schedule a boot time scan the Antivirus asks to restart PC. When PC is rebooting than Antivirus don’t allow any application to run instead of Windows files and starts scanning Windows and other files. Due to inactivity of threats Antivirus can easily delete or quarantine the infection. Boot Scan function is rare in Antivirus softwares and here are two good Antivirus programs having boot scan capability.

Avast 5 Home edition

We can schedule Boot scan with Avast. Avast is one of the best Antivirus program having a comprehensive virus database. Avast Home edition is free and working like a paid Antivirus such as Kasperky or Nortan etc. To enable boot scan with Avast :-

  • Double click on Avast tray located in bottom right corner of desktop (task-bar)
  • Click on the option “scan computer” and then “Boot-time scan”

Get Avast

bootscan-avast

QuickHeal Antivirus

Quick is another Antivirus software with which we can schedule a boot time scan. But the only difference that you must be sure about your boot scan scheduling options because after starting the scan Quick heal don’t allow you to control scan i.e. you can’t stop or skip the scan unlike Avast. Besides QuickHeal is not free and you can use only its one month trial for free.

Get QuickHeal

quick-heal-boot-scan

Overall Boot time scanning can save your system from re installing operating system. And if your Antivirus program have this utility, it is a  plus point regarding your system security.

Do let us know if you are using any antivirus which scan at boot time?

Don’t trust your friend today, if he shares a blogspot.com link with a message in your Facebook inbox.  It is a Virus which auto-sending messages to all Facebook contacts from the infected Facebook profile.

“I got you a surprise, www.qwert**op.blogspot.com”.

The blogspot link will redirect you to a online photo sharing website which shows a photo-album download link contains photo.exe virus.  I have collected some details about this Virus. Origin of this Facebook worm is still unknown. ( Fb Users from Greece and United Arab Emirates are early affected). It hasn’t caused a “global epidemic” as one would expect.  For example, not many people in the USA have heard about this yet and no one has written any tutorials on this issue. Also, most antivirus applications still have not been updated to stop the photo.exe virus file and every day more and more people get infected.  If you think your system is affected, check here for the virus removal and some precautions to stop spreading the Virus.  Do  you have any information or experience about this virus?  Do share with callingallgeeks.org readers and also check back to this place for more updates.

Here comes another leaked Nokia device in form of FULL QWERTY keyboard. Few months back, Nokia X2 was launched at just Rs. 5700 which proved to be absolute amazing in terms of the specifications. This time its X2-01 which looks like an entry-level QWERTY phone. Here are few specs:

  • Camera: 3 megapixel
  • Resolution: QVGA (320 x 240 pixels)
  • Memory: 42 MB with expandable memory
  • Connectivity: EDGE, Wi-fi and Bluetooth
  • Measurements: 119.4×59.8×14.3 mm
  • Weight: 114 g
  • Colors: Gray, White, Red, and Purple

Although these specifications are not final, but at this moment we can say that this phone has no extra features and design also looks dull. The phone is expected to be priced at around Rs. 4500 and will be launched in first quarter of next year.

I would rather suggest you to go for Nokia C3-00 which is also a FULL QWERTY keypad and optimized social networking featured phone. This phone looks to be more promising than X2-01.

It runs on Series 40 which is a rather dated platform. With the following specifications Nokia C3 is priced at Rs. 5745

  • Camera: 2 MP (Upto 4x Zoom)
  • Screen Size: 2.4″
  • Resolution: 320 x 240 pixels
  • Memory: 55 MB internal memory expandable up to 8 GB additional memory with microSD card
  • Battery: Up to 7 hours of talk time.

Do you like Nokia X2-01 ? Do share your views on it ?

We have already shared with you few websites through which you can send free SMS in India. These website are really nice but ends up with few cons. like displays an ad in your message or we can send limited characters (Below 140) and so on.

Whozzat is another service through which we can send free SMS to any mobile in India. Like other websites, we can send upto 160 characters, but without annoying ads. When a message is delivered to recipient it shows the name of the sender. You can send upto 100 sms per day which I think is sufficient for anyone.

This service works really well and is fast & easy to access. After registering you will get your own url something like this http://whozzat.com/username so you can also send unlimited sms to your friends available on Whozzat after there approval.

The unique feature which I have not seen in any other website is ‘Flash SMS‘. A flash sms appears directly on screen instead of going to inbox (Like when balance gets displayed after making a call). It will catch the recipient attention immediately.

There is also a seperate page designed specially for sms included with various categories like Friendship, Funny & even Rajinikanth. :D You can directly send sms from the page.

Connect your twitter & facebook account to post an update through Whozzat. More features like Synchronize Mobile Contact is still on the way to come.

This service has everything expect the limitation to send sms upto 160 characters. Whereas, you can even try SMS7 which is a great way to send message up to 440 characters.

Do share your views on Whozzat & if you are using any other services to send free sms In India or outside India, do let us know.
