The Scenario “You’ve got some grade-A malware on that PC, lady,” Said the computer repair guy standing infront of Elisa’s monitor. “Malware?” Elisa replied. “What is that? I don’t remember downloading anything like that.” “Oh, you wouldn’t know that you had downloaded it, lady. This stuff just creeps onto your computer.” “How do you know that I have… Malware? Could it be something else?” asked Elisa. “Lemme ask you some questions, OK?” said the guy. “Does your computer run slow?” Elisa nodded her head. “How about ads – do you get lots of them popping up on your screen? What about crashes – do they happen often?” “Yeah, all the time” Elisa replied. “Well there’s your answer, lady. Malware”. The Risk Elisa’s computer is just like over 90% of all personal computers: it is infected with Malware. Malware is an often used, but seldom understood term that is used to generally describe malicious programs that identity thieves, hackers and Internet con-men use to control your computer and use it to perform tasks with you as the user often being none the wiser.

Arthritis Trigger Finger – Definition and Ways Of Treatment

Trigger finger arthritis, or Stenosing tenosynovitis as its scietific name, a form of arthritis in fingers is often misconceived to be the index finger arthritis. There are some reasons which can explain for this misconception. Three questions of what it is, which the causes are and how it can be treated will be covered in this article.   What Is It? Trigger finger is actually a “snapping” or “popping” of a finger of the hand as it is closed or opened. The snapping is the reason why it was called trigger finger in the first place. This condition is more commonly found in the index, middle and ring fingers. And the snapping is readily heard upon attempting to flex the fingers while making a firm grip. There is a sudden stuttering of the digit as it closes then snaps close instead of the usual smooth way.   Sometimes, the affected finger cannot anymore stretch back into position and there is a locking in that position so that the other hand will have to help it towards extension. Upon extension, another snap is heard. Pain accompanies the snapping, leading the patient to the doctor.   The popping of the finger is the hallmark of trigger finger and is usually worse in the morning upon getting up. But as the condition worsens, the popping becomes more regular. In the worst scenario, the bump or swollen part of the tendon may lock in place so that it gets stuck there.   What Causes Trigger Finger? So how do we get this condition? Actually, trigger finger is an inflammation of the tendon that...

The Legends Of Hollywood In High Definition On Satellite Tv

Everyone has a friend with a black-and-white phobia, someone who seems to have an allergic reaction to any bit of music or film over 20 years old.  One day, they see a film from the 1940s that opens their eyes in a big way and suddenly they are classic film buffs.  Many a convert has been made from films like Gilda and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence.  Satellite TV networks Turner Classic Movies and American Movie Classics are showing great films like these five in high definition all the time. 1. Touch of Evil. Everyone knows that Orson Welles didn’t play by Hollywood’s rules very well and this picture is a perfect example of that.  With Marlene Dietrich as a gypsy fortune teller and Charlton Heston as a Mexican government official, Welles seemed intent on putting studio execs into a fury.  Nonetheless, he pulled off one of the late, great film noirs and stars in a fat suit which puffed him up to about 300 pounds.  Nothing seems beyond Welles’ grasp in this film, from street gangs and lesbian menaces to impossibly corrupt border cops.  Check out this wild ride uncut on TCM. 2. Gilda.  The pinup girl of the 1940s was Rita Hayworth and this film is the main reason.  Hayworth’s ‘striptease’ sent off fireworks across the world, though all she actually removes is a glove or two from her hands.  A low-cut dress and some expert camerawork did the rest.  Meanwhile, Glenn Ford and Hayworth are pulling out all the stops in a battle of love and death.  Another excellent film noir from the TCM vaults,...
