Autosave Essentials

Ive never heard of this program until now so I did a little background research. Turns out this software could be a life saver.

Here is a description of what it can do, who can use it, how it works, and a features list.
http://www.avanquest.com/USA/software/autosave-essentials-112304#desc

The most important part of the entire description is:

AutoSave Essentials does what it says, it automatically saves (backs up) your essential files by creating a duplicate copy in the safest place you have specified. Save photos, save videos, save music, save documents, save emails - in fact save anything that is valuable. If you are the person responsible for your family’s memories or your company’s accounts or even general data, it may just save your life. Plus no complications, it is as easy as 1-2-3!

Another very interesting thing about this software that truly sets it apart is that it can detect if your network location is available or if its not and alter the save locations in another available location.

Blog Activity and License Give Away

In an attempt to gain more readers, more content, and to liven up the place Im in the process of putting together a license give away with.

Spyshelter Update v5.01 and Customer Service

With the release of Spyshelter v5.0 early last week I ran into some issues.

One issue was Spyshelter had a splash screen at bootup that it wasnt supposed to have. After having gone through all of the settings and registry items I contacted support. At this time Spyshelter advised me to uninstall, reboot, and redownload to install again. Sure enough this did the trick only to introduce a new problem.

In the x64 version of Spyshelter in the settings menu. The autostart button would highlight like it was checked, but never checked. However Spyshelter would still start despite not having a start up entry.

After working with Spyshelter support on this issue they had a new release rolled out the next day and notified me via email. Sure enough all was good. So my hats off to Spyshelters dedicated coders and customer service.

With the latest update the layout looks identical to previous versions with a few small tweaks. The items render much faster than before. It still weighs in around 20Mbs running real time so its still very light compared to most other security software on the market today.

Blog Update

In an attempt to attract more readers I have made some slight changes to the blog.

First and foremost. I have updated the favicon to something more suitable for a Windows Tech site.

Second I have added meta tags to the HTML of the site to get indexed in search engines and hopefully gain more exposure.

Third I have added tags to each post also in an attempt to get indexed and gain more hits from search engines.

And finally I have added a nice little piece of HTML to the coding on the site. You can see what I did in the bottom left hand side under each post. It allows you to share a post via email, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, or Google Buzz with who ever you want.
