Acronis True Image free for Maxtor, Seagate users


"Acronis can be obtained free if you have a Maxtor or Seagate hard drive.


The important thing to note, however, is that both utilities are based on an OEM version of Acronis's well-regarded True Image backup application. According to the Inquirer's report, both free utilities support the creation of disk images, partitions, the cloning and formatting of disks, and more.


Inquirer's report:


One of the best HDD utilities is free


Seagate provides Two free downloadable utilities at the following links:

[] Internet Connections by Mr.Victor July 19, 2016, 12:01:15 PM
There is nothing more frustrating sometimes, like when you can't connect to the Internet.
Many things can cause failed connections, like even a Virus. There's a DHCP disabling virus,
a Firewall blocking virus, LAN Settings manipulation virus, and the list goes on and on.

Assuming you have a good Anti-Virus program installed along with perhaps a secondary Malware detection program like MalwareBytes, you can minimize or eliminate these types of viruses. If your Internet Settings have been mysteriously changed, there are some excellent resources that will help you get your connection back in a jiffy.

First, right-click on your Network Icon in the system tray. Then click "Troubleshoot problems". If this does not locate an issue, and you are connected via a cable to your router, disconnect the cable from router and plug into cable modem or other ISP device directly. Go back to system tray "Troubleshoot problems".  If this still does not fix your issue, see below.

First, Download "Complete Internet Repair" and " - Windows Repair"
* They're both FREE *
Install and run one tool at a time, and troubleshoot using the program.

Finally, check with your Internet Service Provider(ISP) website for connection issue troubleshooting.

[] Wireless Router Security by Mr.Victor May 20, 2016, 03:05:12 PM
Typically most households that have internet access use a wireless router, which is your first point of defense to the outside world. You must then ask yourself the question of whether or not, your Router is safely protecting your computer network?

My personal recommendations are:
1> Occasionally unplug your Wireless Router for 1 minute then reconnect.
     This can fix connection issues, and may also perform updates on some routers.
2> Use Steve Gibson's Router Crash Test, DNS Spoof Test, and the ShieldsUP tests to evaluate your current protection.
3> Use links below to further improve your router security protection.
4> Finally, determine if you should replace/upgrade your router.,news-19245.html

Is it time to upgrade your Wireless Router?,2817,2493100,00.asp

On a tight budget? No problem!
