USB DRIVE / FLASH DRIVE VIRUS REMOVAL TOOLS

WHAT IS A USB FLASH DRIVE?

A USB flash drive is a NAND-type flash memory data storage device integrated with a USB (universal serial bus) connector. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, much shorter than a floppy disk (1-4 inches or 25-102 mm), and weigh less than 2 ounces (56g). Storage capacities range from 64MB to 16GB or more. Some allow 1 million write or erase cycles[1] and have 10-year data retention, connected by USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 or both. USB Memory card readers are also available, whereby rather than being built-in, the memory is a removable flash memory card housed in what is otherwise a regular USB flash drive, as described below.

USB flash drives offer potential advantages over other portable storage devices, particularly the floppy disk. They are more compact, faster, hold more data, are more reliable for lack of moving parts, and have a more durable design. Additionally, it has become increasingly common for computers to ship without floppy disk drives. USB ports, on the other hand, appear on almost every current mainstream PC and laptop. These types of drives use the USB mass storage standard, supported natively by modern operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and other Unix-like systems.

With nothing being mechanically driven in a flash drive, the name is something of a misnomer. It is called a "drive" because it appears to the computer operating system (and the user) in a manner identical to a mechanical disk drive, and is accessed in the same way.

A flash drive consists of a small printed circuit board typically in a plastic or metal casing and more recently in rubber casings to increase their robustness. This makes the drive sturdy enough to be carried about in a pocket, for example as a key fob, or on a lanyard. Only the USB connector protrudes, and it is typically protected either by a removable cap or by retracting into the body of the drive. Most flash drives use a standard type-A USB connection allowing them to be connected directly to a port on a personal computer.

To access the data stored in a flash drive, the drive must be connected to a USB port, either a host controller built into a computer, a USB hub, or some other device designed to access the data, such as an mp3 player with a USB-in port. Flash drives are active only when plugged into a USB connection and draw all necessary power from the supply provided by that connection. Some flash drives, however, especially high-speed drives, may require more power than the limited amount provided by a bus-powered USB hub, such as those built into some computer keyboards or monitors. These drives will not work unless plugged directly into a host controller (i.e., the ports found on the computer itself) or a self-powered hub.

USB DRIVE VIRUS REMOVAL TOOLS

Since the development of USB Drive disk and memory cards,
new type of viruses emerges affecting mobile phones, mp4 players, mp3 players,

Formatting Nokia S60 Phones

Does your Nokia S60 cellphone running slow?
A virus might have been affected it?
Maybe it needs to be reformated?

Recently I went to repair shops and they charge
quite a large amount of money, just to fix this kind
of problems.

Here are some codes that will make your phone
get better again and save you some money on repairs.

Just type the code in your S60 Cellphones.

CODES

*#0000# to find out firmware version and more information.

*#06# to find your IMEI number.

*#7370# to format your phone.
This will restore your phone to the way it was when you bought it.
Make sure your battery is charged or nearly full before you do it.

*#7780# similar to *#7370#

*#2820# to find out the bluetooth ip address of the phone

*#res0wallet# to erase all data stored in the wallet. lock code is required
Green, *, 3 to format the phone,
turn off and hold these keys while phone is rebooting.
do not let go until "formatting" appears and make sure
you have enough battery power (3/4 minimum)

How to reset/reformat a phone.

It may happens that a program corrupts the
C: drive of your phone. In such case, some data
can be lost of course but, more annoying,
some applications may not work or work only partially,...

On a Series 60 based phone, two key sequences
will allow to restore your phone to a cleaner state:

1) Normal Reset (*#7780#) : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc)

2) Deep Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

In both case, the phone will ask you a confirmation and you will have to enter a security code (12345 by default).

Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by these sequences.

* Useful helps : Full phone formatting a 6600! Here to let everybody how to perform a Full phone formatting on a 6600! If you encounter situation like below on your 6600,

1. Blank screen phone unable to reboot. (Remove the battery and insert it again and restart but still the problem is on)

2. Phone only able to boot-up to "Nokia" word screen.

3. Install some program but not able to uninstall it after that. (if the problem is “unable to delete xxx, already in use by c:..” try to restart the phone first. Wait for a few minutes after restarting then try uninstalling it again but the problem is still there)

4. Unable to delete unwanted files on C drive. (Reboot the phone but the problem is still..)

Then U should reformat your 6600 phone! as steps below,

1. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery power left.

2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card or send them into your PC using IR or BT

3. Switch-off your 6600 phone.

4. Press and hold 3 keys;
i) Green dial key,
ii) * Star key,
iii) no.3 key on keypad
and then press the power on/off to swtich on the 6600 phone.
Remember, do not let go the 3 press and just hold the keys
until you see a formatting word screen show!

5. After a few minutes when the Full phone formatting completed,
your 6600 will back to original system and factory settting.

Downloading Videos from YouTube

What is You Tube?

YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips. YouTube was created in mid-February 2005 by three former PayPal employees. The San Bruno-based service uses Adobe Flash technology to display a wide variety of video content, including movie clips, TV clips and music videos, as well as amateur content such as videoblogging and short original videos. In October 2006, Google Inc. announced that it had reached a deal to acquire the company for US$1.65 billion in Google stock. The deal closed on November 13, 2006.

Unregistered users can watch most videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos. Some videos are available only to users of age 18 or older (e.g. videos containing potentially offensive content). The uploading of videos containing pornography, nudity, defamation, harassment, commercial advertisements and material encouraging criminal conduct is prohibited. Related videos, determined by title and tags, appear onscreen to the right of a given video. In YouTube's second year, functions were added to enhance user ability to post video 'responses' and subscribe to content feeds.

Few statistics are publicly available regarding the number of videos on YouTube. However, in July 2006, the company revealed that more than 100 million videos were being watched every day, and 2.5 billion videos were watched in June 2006. 50,000 videos were being added per day in May 2006, and this increased to 65,000 by July.

In August 2006, The Wall Street Journal published an article revealing that YouTube was hosting about 6.1 million videos (requiring about 45 terabytes of storage space), and had about 500,000 user accounts.[5] As of March 19, 2008, a YouTube search returns about 72.1 million videos and 2.89 million user channels.

Play FLV Files with Windows Media Player

WHAT IS FLV?

Flash Video is the name of a file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash Player) version 6, 7, 8, or 9. Until version 9 update 2 of the Flash Player, Flash Video referred to a proprietary file format, having the extension FLV. The most recent public release of Flash Player supports H.264 video and HE-AAC audio. Flash Video content may also be embedded within SWF files. Notable users of the Flash Video format include YouTube, Google Video, Reuters.com, Yahoo! Video, MySpace, and many television news operations are also using Flash Video on their websites.

Flash Video is viewable on most operating systems, via the widely available Adobe Flash Player and web browser plugin, or one of several third-party programs such as MPlayer, VLC media player, Quicktime, or any player which uses DirectShow filters (such as Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, and Windows Media Center) when the ffdshow filter is installed.

EPSON C90 Review

Printers! Printers! Printers!

The EPSON C90 is one of the cheapest printer you can buy.
At $62.00 and a low cost ink, it's a bargain.

Printing Quality

Draft Quality is useless.

At Default Setting quality is good for documents and
Photo Printing on non Photo-Papers.

At Photo Print Setting using a non-Epson Photo Paper,
the result is not glossy,
but as what durabrite ink says, even when the photo is
soaked for more than a week in water,
colors stay the same with no smudging.


Papers

A4, Letter Size, Legal Size, Envelopes, 4R papers,
it handle it well.


Oslo papers can't fit in it. Using board papers is not
a recommendation, it might feed correctly sometimes
but it'll damage some parts that will eventually
malfunction the printer.

Continous Ink Supply System (CISS)

It's compatible, Dye Based Inks or Pigment Inks.
However there may be some parts of the printer that
needs to be taken out like the ink covers to make
the CISS work. A good type of CISS model for these
are the ones with the tubes are placed on top and not
on the sides.


Compatible Cartridge

May have a problem with compatible cartridge.
Specially CDR-King Types.

Summary

Epson C90 is a good printer, photo print quality is
standard, as you can still see some dots and lines
in the photos using original ink ofcourse.
Ink cost is cheap, a bit noisy when printing.


RATING from 1-10
I rate this printer 7.

On the processes tab find the following running processes:

Right Click on each process and choose End Process Tree.
Close the Task Manager.

3. Click Start>Run and Type Regedit.
Press Ctrl-F and find the following registry keys.
a) SSCVIIHOST.exe

d) pc-off.bat
Right Click on the value and click delete.
After finding one entry, Press F3 to continue the search.

4. After you delete those registry entries,
Goto Start>Search>Click All files and folders,
on the more advanced options put a check
on search system folders, hidden, and subfolders.
Enter these as keywords, and delete those files if found.
a) SSCVIIHOST.exe

type these keyword, *.exe.
On the results panel, sort it by clicking the size field.
Any file that has a folder icon, a detail that tells it is an application
and with a filesize of only 245kb, right click and delete all of them.

6. Restart your PC. Test if your PC is running normal again and no
SSCVIIHOST.exe is running by running the task manager. Ctrl-Alt-Del.
If the virus is still in your PC, it means you missed a registry entry.
Do the steps again to clear it. Make sure you do it one by one.

PREVENTION

When opening your USB Disk do not double click on it, instead use the
folder options to navigate it. If your antivirus does not detect this type
of virus, I recommend Avira Free Personal Edition Antivirus,
it detects most of the USB viruses today.

Hope my guide helped you.
