    I was surprised to see Windows Defender updating it's definitions when I have Avast installed (free version). Both are now reported as fully operational and running.

    Test if you have Superfish, Komodia or PrivDog

    I've had PriviDog installed for sometime now - part of Comodo Firewall. Not really thought too much about it, no advertising noticed anywhere and it appeared to be blocking lots of tracking cookies etc. Firefox popped up tonight with a warning with a tick box to disable the software and as I...

    Update: The new version downloaded and installed with no problems. Followed the same installation route as before. Most probably will never find out what all the security alerts were about.

    Solved Coprocessor Not Found 8.1 (Computer Freezes)

    My computer can't boot after uninstalling chipset driver

    Have you got a Win 8 disk or is there a recovery partition on your laptop? I don't own a laptop but I think you can boot to the recovery partition through the bios. Sometimes hitting F8 many times can bring up the safe mode option. This might be an interesting read for Acer laptops...
