Antivirus Programs
Today, people rely on computers to create, store, and manage critical information, many times via a home computer network. Information transmitted over networks has a higher degree of security risk than information kept in a user’s home or company premises. Thus, it is crucial that they take measures to protect their computers and data from loss, damage, and misuse resulting from computer security risks. Antivirus programs are an effective way to protect a computer against viruses.
An antivirus program protects a computer against viruses by identifying and removing any computer viruses found in memory, on storage media, or on incoming files.1 when you purchase a new computer, it often includes antivirus software. Antivirus programs work by scanning for programs that attempt to modify the boot program, the operating system, and other programs that normally are read from but not modified. In addition, many antivirus programs automatically scan files downloaded from the web, e-mail attachments, opened files, and all types of removable media inserted in the computer [ (Karanos 201-205) ]
One technique that antivirus programs use to identify a virus is to look for virus signatures, or virus definitions, which are known specific patterns of virus code. According to Shelly and Cashman (Antivirus Programs), many vendors of antivirus programs allow registered users to update virus signature files automatically from the web at no cost for a specific time. Updating the antivirus

Program’s signature file regularly is important, because it will download any new virus definitions that have been added since the last update.
Methods that guarantee a computer or network is safe from computer viruses simply do not exist. Installing, and using an antivirus program, though, is an effective technique to…...

Eng 102 Controversy Paper

...definitely do not work those jobs. So I find that hard to understand. As said by the character ‘Aging hippie liberal douche’, “Your ancestors came to America as immigrants. What right do you have to turn these people away?” (Comedy Partners). In the episode, the Americans tried everything to get rid of the immigrants (Goobacks) and were constantly angry with them. But as the aging hippie liberal douche summarized it, we ourselves are all immigrants so how can we judge them. But yet we still treat immigrants differently and keep them at a safe distance. Some Americans get angered when immigrants cannot understand English. They also feel that immigrants refuse to learn ‘our’ language. As said by the character Kyle, “Dude, hold on! This is bullcrap! If they wanna live in our time, then they should learn our language!” (Comedy Partners). But yet if you think about that, all of our ancestors had to adjust and learn the language of America, which shows why us ‘Americans’ speak English. But yet who says English is the best language, that it is ‘better’ than any other language, that immigrants have to learn the language. So that is how I see some Americans as hypocrites and the South Park episode ‘Goobacks’ is a prime example of that. We can be so harsh to immigrants but yet we would be angered if our own family was treated harshly. But of course our own family was treated that way, because they themselves were immigrants at one time. Also of course, ‘Took our jobs!’ hits close......

...bother to listen in whatever dilemma she’s into because I just don’t care. Masyado na siyang nagiging maarte, kahit kapatid ko yung boyfriend nito, naku! Ka-stress silang dalawa ha. “Ang arte mo na ha! Kung wala ka namang nagagandahan dun sa boutique nung company namin, dapat sinabi mo na agad, leche naman Meg oh, yan mamili ka.” Maybe that’s answer why no one bothers to stop me when I run away with this bitch. Dinala ko siya sa isa pang clothing line dito sa mall, ewan ko na lang talaga kung wala pa siyang mapili dito, eh halos lahat ng styles nandito na. “You really had no patience within your skin.” Pigilan niyo ko, masasabunutan ko na talaga ang nilalang na ‘to. Sa two hours na kahihintay ko sa kanya, yan pa ang mapapala ko? Bullcrap! “Hey i’m just kidding.” Mabilis na tugon nito nung tiningnan ko siya ng masama. “I have no time for that Meg, i’m freaking hungry. If you want to starve to death then I will leave you here, it’s already one-thirty in the afternoon, I haven’t had my lunch yet, you know that right?!” Nagpunta na nga siya dunsa fitting room kasama ang ‘sangkaterba na mga dress, kasi naman si Drei, (my brother) naisipan pa yung dinner date na yun, damay perwisyo pa tuloy ako. Si Shane din, magsasabing sasama daw siya ngayon, nga nga naman ang inabot ko. kanina ko pa tinatawagan, cannot be reached naman.

Peeling Back the Mask

...not mistreat me under the government of Raila son of Odinga… She did that to me during Moi’s reign when I was working at the Energy Regulatory Board; but not any more. You guys know what Sally did… It’s all there in Raila’s Enigma book. She would call and abuse Raila when she was Head of the Civil Service. So, she can go to hell!” It was amazing. Caroli didn’t care that he was shouting about this in the presence of junior employees in the office, thus undermining Sally even in the eyes of quite lowly subordinates. I guess power had gone to his head. Following my irregular suspension, Caroli went on national television to cast aspersions against me, claiming that I was “responsible for the conflict within the coalition government”. It was bullcrap! The last incident concerning Sally occurred in late 2011. Sally was among ODM cabinet ministers and MPs who were travelling to Rusinga Island for the burial of Millie Odhiambo’s mother. She had arrived at the ferry pier at Luanda Kotieno in the morning and boarded with others. By mid-morning, the ferry was in the middle of Lake Victoria heading towards Rusinga when the captain received an emergency call from Luanda Kotieno that he had to return to the pier. At first he resisted, arguing – correctly – that returning would expose the ferry, himself and his passengers to unnecessary danger; that he preferred to reach his destination first before turning back. As the captain was still arguing with his manager, the District Commissioner......

What Scares You the Most

...touched! Our lips fucking touched! I don’t know what the hell happened but there I found her face so close to mine. My chest! I swear my heart almost leapt out! I kissed few people back then, but her lips- I don’t think there are enough words to describe the softness of it. Well it’s more of a peck but whatever our lips touched. She tensed after it though. I swallowed dryly as I read the last sentence. I didn’t know that she noticed how I reacted right after our lips touched. I thought I made a good act, well obviously I didn’t. I don’t think this is still appropriate to be written here. But I keep nothing in here so… it all started with this thing she calls ‘sweet lady kisses’ which led to something hotter and sexier. It’ll be such bullcrap if I’ll deny that I didn’t like it. But when I tried to connect my eyes with her she just buried her head onto my neck and inhaled deeply riding the pleasure she has been on, not noticing the same euphoria neared mine. I wanted to say those words… those three words that has been dwelling inside me but I’m scared with what will she react. I’m scared to tell her I love her. I found the familiar lump in my throat as I finished the last words. Brittany was right, there’ll be a big changes when I get the chance to read this. I’m such a bitch! I told her… I told her I love her. And she walked away, almost breaking my heart. Actually she did break it. She did. And that’s what it took for my tears to fall as I remember the exact words......

...front windshields of the gondola. The world lingered in gray eternity, staring emotionlessly back at her. After another breath, she returned lethargically to her entry. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I know that I have written enough about Octavia—about music, about the only thing that actually has any significance to me. But today, nothing happened. And when I write on the topic of “nothing,” I inevitably comment on yesterday while simultaneously predicting tomorrow. And yet I still write. I'm sure there was a noble reason for why I began making journal entries in the first place. Quite possibly, when I was still rather new to this whole routine—I had the naive hope that everything I put to pen would someday be read by other ponies. But I know that's utter bullcrap; because I'm a pony and I can't bring myself to read the older entries I have made. Still, I am what I am, and that necessitates that I produce something ... anything ... to prove that I exist. It's the least and yet the most I can do with my presence here on this world, or so I try to tell myself. Thus, as always, here goes: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~ She trotted swiftly down a field of petrified trees, all bent backwards in the fossilized signature of a blast wave having seared them to ash long ago. A fine, blue mist lingered coldly a few centimeters off the once-forested floor as the goggled mare shone a pair of glowing lanterns ahead of her. She focused the hazy beams of gold past the gray husks of wood until she narrowed the light......

Parents with Immature Behaviors

...might give a gentler, almost humourous anger response to keep him on the right side of my personal boundaries. Maybe he’ll get another shouting match out of me yet, but I feel more okay about it all, anyway. The basic rule is: you can’t run. If a negative bit of “stuff” comes along, you got to face it. Use it as a means to your further sublimation…….. a neglected part of yourself coming up to say hi – looking for you to integrate it as a part of you now. You just ride the wave, Zen-like “doing nothing” while doing whatever you are doing, and soon enough it’s over, and you’re at the next level of growth. Understanding helps me come to terms with having been brought up by immature parents. I see them for what they are, and see through their bullcrap – but see right through it to the human interior. They speak different languages. But on a soul level, there is a genuine connection. I don’t think you can go through so many years and so much sacrifice together and not have a connection. So this is my teacher of unconditional love; if I can see the love here, underneath the most dense boundaries, underneath even hate — I can love anyone. Did you enjoy this article?

Stars Cant Shine Without Darkness

...two sharp pains in my thigh and arm. Looking down to see what it was, I saw that I was shot twice, but not worrying about myself I crawled to my brother to see if he was alright. As soon as I got to James I was excited to see him still breathing but angered at the thought that he had told me that we should’ve walked the other way home and I didn’t listen. Looking at his wounds I seen that James was shot three times one in the right side of his chest the second one hit his stomach and the last bullet lodged in his shoulder. I speedily pull out my cell phone and call the ambulance. While waiting for an ambulance to come and holding my brother in my arms I begin to think back to the entire thing that earlier this week that would lead to this bullcrap happening. After P.E. Damon aka Big D begins digging in his bag. Then he gets angry and throws it on the ground and says “who went through my bag.” No one answers but soon his friend leaves the locker room and comes back 2 minutes later saying ”no one comes out and says they took whatever is missing from my friends bag we are going to have a serious problem.” I am thinking that it was his friend Thomas or aka Lil T that took whatever was missing from his bag. I don’t know why for some mystical reason they skipped everyone that would possibly steal something for Big D to antagonize my brother James and I. they both walked up to us and said we know you took the bags of weed out of Damon’s bag. I and my brother standing there......

Here’s his website address,” as she jotted down on a piece of paper. “Thank you, Dr. Menez.” She handed the paper to him. She closed her eyes as she rotates her office chair. ”I also wanted to study BDV, but I am afraid that it would turn to be an epic failure. I don’t want to risk my name and my life. I wish you good luck with your study. But if I were you, I will not.” “If I will not, who will? I am determined,” in his most motivated tone. “I will seize that bullcrap BDV as immediate as I can!
