Increasing your Laptops performance

Aside from increasing the main memory on your laptop, the next best thing you can do is to replace your 2.5" hard disk drive with SSD (Solid State Drives). However, SSD are very expensive - typically 3 or 4 times the cost of ordinary 2.5" hard disk drives. They are also limited in terms of storage size (64gb, 128gb and 256gb). Now comes the Seagate Momentus Hybrid Drives. They are essentially 2.5" harddisk drives, but come with a 4gb SSD acting as a super fast cache! Capacities go from 250gb all the way to 500gb!

Pirated Windows XP leads in Infections

A study that has been conducted by the AVAST Virus Lab has identified unpatched and pirated versions of Windows XP as the perfect target for rootkit infection. The study found that rootkits infecting via the MBR were responsible for [more than] 62 percent all rootkit infections. Driver infection made up only 27 percent of infection. The clear leader in rootkit infection is the Alureon (TDL4/TDL3) family, responsible for 74 percent of infections.
