Aside from being a free antivirus software, it is the most popular and most commonly used security program in the market today. It has been considered as the most effective software that perfectly removes viruses, threats and other forms of malware.

AVG competes with the biggest players in the market today – Symantec and McAfee, which has consistently gained the trust of the public in removing and detecting viruses and threats. AVG has been proven to deliver the most important aspect to its users – security. It continues to add innovative new features that make the software more effective and easier to use.

The best thing about AVG is its LinkScanner, Cloud antivirus technology and it’s Social Networking Protection, leaving Avast far more behind. It has the best features that has never been found in other antivirus software, including Avast.

 

AVG has proven to be the best software in the market. Recently, the developers have been found to develop another key feature of their latest version. Whatever it is, nobody has known yet. But AVG promised the public that they will cater all their demands and needs, and will gradually improve the versions of their software.

Avast

Avast, the short term for Anti-Virus Advanced Set, is also a nautical word for stop. It is a strong security solution that is commonly used by the public to shield their system from viruses, threats, malware and other forms of spyware. They have been guaranteed to provide multi-layer solutions and protection to PS users.

Both features similar detection rates, removal effectiveness and impacts on the system. It is no longer a matter of who wins the fight, but rather the choice of getting the best protection from an antivirus software. We recommend both AVG and Avast, as they are both functional and effective, thus been given the recognition of being two of the best antivirus software in the market. More than just being known and popular, AVG and Avast totally competes in performance, protection and most of all, price.

‘Unofficial’ Windows XP SP4 Launched. Microsoft OS Lives On

 Windows XP SP4

Despite having been discarded by Microsoft MSFT -0.24% in April, the 12 year old OS just received Service Pack 4.

Needless to say this isn’t Microsoft demonstrating yet another generous act of utter stupidity, but the work of its diehard fanbase. Dubbed the ‘Unofficial Service Pack 4’, credit goes to Greece-based developer harkaz who started the project back in September 2013. The third beta has already been launched and, in true Microsoft fashion, a Release Candidate (RC) will be ready soon.

“Many users  who won’t be able to upgrade their old machines to a newer OS would like to easily install all Windows updates in one convenient package.

“Windows XP Unofficial SP4 ENU is a cumulative update rollup for Windows XP (x86) English,”. “It can be applied to a live Windows XP system which has SP1, at minimum, installed or it can be slipstreamed (integrated) in any Windows XP installation media.”

Harkaz breaks down Unofficial SP4 stating that it includes ‘ updates for most Windows XP components’, including:

MCE and Tablet PC
Request-only hotfixes
Microsoft .NET Frameworks 4.0, 3.5, 1.1 and 1.0 (Tablet PC only)
Integrated POSReady security updates

The POSReady security hack was announced in May and it takes advantage of a Microsoft loophole that provides security support for ‘Windows Embedded POSReady’ (now called ‘Windows Embedded Industry’) which will last until 2019. Emdedded Industry is a b2b-focused variant of Windows XP running Service Pack 3.

How it works is the POSReady hack tricks Microsoft servers into thinking consumer versions of Windows XP are in fact Embedded Industry and therefore supplying them with security updates. Rightfully critics have noted that the two OSes are not identical which could cause problems, but it has proved a fruitful route so far. The hack was fairly simple, but automating it within a wider update will appeal to many.

Needless to say caveats apply if you are going to consider installing Unofficial SP4, many of which are stated by harkaz. The main one of which is to obtain the downloads from the developer’s posts on RyanVM as there are numerous malware and virus infected fake SP4 patches floating around.

The official Microsoft Windows XP countdown clock has expired

I would also add that in installing any Windows patch not verified by Microsoft is a risk, though in this case the lack of future security patches for Windows XP means running the OS is already a big risk in itself. Furthermore – with a reported 25% of all PCs still running Windows XP – this is a risk which is only going to get worse.

All of this is a potential PR disaster for Microsoft. I personally believe the company has every right to end support for an operating system after providing it for free for 12 years and providing years of warning, but reports of Windows XP mass hacks and customers suffering poses a real problem. Furthermore with Windows 8 failing to take off and Windows 7 Mainstream Support ending in January Microsoft is fast becoming cornered.

The only card the company has to play is Windows 9. It will have to be incredibly lean to have any chance of running on Windows XP computers, but more than that it will need to be a compelling, crowd pleasing and affordable operating system in its own right.

The first public beta of Windows 9 is expected to arrive on 30 September. No pressure Microsoft…
