Nanoscan is the fastest free virus scanner I have ever used, no download is necessary and all you need to do in order to benefit your PC of Nanoscan is go to it’s site for a super-quick scan. Nanoscan bascially searches for viruses, spyware and other threats. It can detect, in 1-2 minutes, a huge number of threats that could be running on your PC right now. Don’t be surprised if it finds active viruses, spyware or Trojans on your PC, even if you have an updated antivirus.
The best thing about using Nanoscan, apart from the fact that it is so quick is that:
- It detects over 2,720,334 viruses, spyware and other known threats.
- It also finds threats that have not yet been identified thanks to its TruPrevent? intelligent technology.
After just over one minute of scanning it gives you its results on a new results page along with the current status of the antivirus software (whether it is up to date) which you may have installed on your system.
Many users switch over to websurfing using Firefox from IE because they’ve been told it’s faster, more reliable and well just better than Microsoft. Yes I have no doubt that all of that may well be true, but some do experience the fact that Firefox isn’t so much faster at all. This can especially be the case when you haven’t got a good quality broadband and being able to use every bit of your connection to the full means alot.
Here in this post, we’ll show you a few easy tricks you can do to tweak your Firefox browser faster and better, it’ll only take you about two minutes to do 🙂
We have found two ways to do this, both should equally speed up your Firefox in the same way.
According to MoreMerchant, by default, Firefox is optimized for dialup connections and not broadband, therefore the following steps will help you change your Firefox for the better:
1. Type ?about:config? into the address bar and hit return. Type ?network.http? in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
2. Set ?network.http.pipelining? to ?true?
3. Set ?network.http.proxy.pipelining? to ?true?
4. Set ?network.http.pipelining.maxrequests? to 30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at one time. Originally I tried 100 here and it didn?t seem to help. When I went with 30 I noticed an improvement.
5. Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it ?nglayout.initialpaint.delay? and set its value to ?0?. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
Method #2 following after the break (reading method #2 is advised before performing method #1)… Continue reading »

Check out this very handy device, this is not just any microscope, this is a USB one and one with some good neat specs too!
According to Novatech:
Ideal for a wide variety of practical applications in the classroom, workplace and even the home. Can be used for science and engineering work and study, dermatology (skin/scalp) exam, detailed repair, assembly and quality control (ie. electronics, mechanical, etc), hobbies & collecting (coin, stamp, watch, jewelry, etc.), law enforcement (counterfeit ID, crime lab, etc) , entertainment or simply as a reading aid. Just use your imagination!
Included with each Dino-Lite digital microscope is a copy of the “DinoCapture” software, enabling you to “capture” either a photograph, video or time-lapsed video with a simple click.
The latest version of Google Maps no longer requires your device to have GPS anymore. It’s now possible to use the application to identify your position while you’re on the go using the cell tower information triangulation.
There is a new feature which is currently still in Beta called My Location. This lets you use the application with or without GPS, giving you an accuracy within 1000m of your location which can actually be quite a vague, unrecognisable if you were travelling somewhere you’ve never been before…
