Thank yoooou!

Answer by Nick M
You need a web host to store any files you display on any website or blog or forum. Such as images, text, pages etc.

The best free one which wordpres can be easily installed on is:

x10hosting.com

Though a long process in signing up, since you have to sign up for a forum account as well as the host account, this host is great.

To install, sign up and login, click on the Cpanel URL:

http://lotus.x10hosting.com:2082

and type in your details you filled in when you signed up, then to create your wordpress blog, when you are logged in, scroll down to the bottom an click on : “Fantastico De Luxe”, look on the side for blogs then click on wordpress, the rest should be pretty clear.

If you need more help in setting this up contact me through y profile (Click on my name)

Cheers,

Nick

Avast Antivirus Review – Two Major Characteristics Provided To Its Devoted Users

Avast Antivirus has been popular among users because even its free version is effective. The Pro version is now among the top commercial antivirus options. Avast Professional Antivirus version 6.0 improves on a previous version of the product. The primary complain against Avast had been the outdated user interface. Avast Version 5 added a new, polished, easy-to-use interface. Version 6 retains this interface and adds some great functionality and features, like Auto-Sandbox and WebRep.

Avast Antivirus has been popular among users because even its free version is effective. The Pro version is now among the top commercial antivirus options. Avast Professional Antivirus version 6.0 improves on a previous version of the product. The primary complain against Avast had been the outdated user interface. Avast Version 5 added a new, polished, easy-to-use interface. Version 6 retains this interface and adds some great functionality and features, like Auto-Sandbox and WebRep.

Avast offers a relatively hassle-free installation. The impact on boot time and shut down is also minimal. Avast incorporates a boot-time scanner to detect any threat during start up. Independent tests on Avast rated the software high on speed and usability, and a high detection rate of threats. Avast incorporates a heuristic engine to detect new undefined threats. The software also compares favorably with similar applications in its scan speed. Though not lightning fast, it certainly is on the faster side.

Several new security features have been added to the new version. The most prominent is arguably the Sandbox feature. The Sandbox is a virtual environment that allows suspicious programs to run in isolation to prevent your system from being compromised by malicious software. There is an auto-sandbox feature which responds at once to any suspected threat by isolating it in a separate virtual machine. You can customize this feature and also turn the sandbox on manually.

Unfortunately, as with any new feature, the Sandbox has a few glitches. For instance, there is an option to run the application normally, and a checkbox to remember this setting but it does not always work. Avast will keep asking you if you want to run the application in a Sandbox even for a program that you have flagged as ok to run normally. This is one drawback and a chink in Avast?s armor.

You can stop antivirus from asking you notifications if it can open software. By just creating a white-list and adding the programs you trust, you can create a workaround for this issue. Avast?s WebRep is a unique feature. It provides a rating based on feedback from various users. These feedbacks are taken together and made into a colored rating which says a lot about the trustworthiness of a site.

One feature that comes only in the Pro version is the Safe Zone. This allows you to run any sensitive transaction in an isolated process. The difference between Sandbox and Safe Zone is Sandbox prevents threats from leaking onto the system. Safe Zone protects sensitive data during transactions like online banking, by preventing threats from breaking in.

Save your computer from any kind of threat with the help of Avast Internet security and Avast Antivirus Professional. The safety you avail when making sensitive transactions and the security you get against threats makes Avast Professional 6.0 the best choice.

I am certain that we have all viewed television shows where the victim ultimately manages to grab a self-defense weapon. A skirmish with the enemy ensues and the victim aims the device but nothing appears. It is either the mechanism stopped working or the device wasn’t used properly, or the aim was simply poor.

I did not want that to happen to me. The best pepper spray self defense advice that I have discovered is to be familiar with your device. I have a pepper gun so I began reading everything I could find regarding it.

Pepper spray is made up of a non fatal formulation. It works on the eyes as well as the respiratory tract, which will result in brief blindness and issues in breathing.

Many styles can be found but I think a pepper gun may be the best pepper spray self defense gadget for novices just like me. It comes in the shape of a gun so it is better to aim and the trigger is very simple to control.

A pepper spray gun can reach a distance of about twenty-five feet and has several blasts. The pepper gun can spew in an uninterrupted manner even if it is inverted. This completely new technology is often utilized by pepper spray makers just like Mace.

The LED light which is installed on many pepper guns can distract an assailant easily. The light is also critical in giving the best pepper spray self defense even in dimly lighted areas.

Don’t be at ease with learning what to do with self-defense weapon theoretically. Do not let your time of need be the first time that you in fact make use of your one. It is best to learn what you are up against however it also helps to know what you are fighting them with.
