reinstall Teredo tunneling pseudo interface part 1.

I mentioned last week the fact that I caught a bug. It was adware, and I cleaned it up with 4 plus hours of deleting and scanning and cleaning again. Now I keep finding more things going wrong with the old pc. Suddenly a webpage would get unresponsive, and navigation became difficult.
I ran another set of scans and sure enough, more adware, so I cleaned it up and the next time I went forth into Webville, I had the same symptoms again. That’s when I received a message about how my computer needed an updated piece of hardware.

Teredo tunneling pseudo interface is the gadget that tells other computers who it is. It might have worked fine forever except there are too many computers for an old interface. The net is expanding and a new interface has been employed.
I told my machine to fix the problem and it said it couldn’t. So I tried a couple of times and decided to get an answer out there. I couldn’t get Microsoft to do anything, and other sites kept saying, here download this…
I almost installed a couple of different supposed to be fixes, when I saw these products were another attempt to infect my pc even more. I started checking reviews on the fix I needed and found my answers. I will post the answer after this so if you don’t want to look at it, I won’t blame you.

Spy Watch : Is Your Computer Protected?

WTF my view online

I am running another scan on my “old, outdated, nearly obsolete computer. I haven’t been downloading much since the big adware thing hit me. I’m not sure that anyone is safe out there. Which security systems should you use?

I am told over and over, by marketers and the likes, ” don’t use free anti-virus or security programs”, as they’re not safe. The impression is free programs are substandard, or a diluted version of the real thing. I believe both views are correct in some cases…..

I have bought different programs such as Symantec and McAfee in the past, and wondered if those programs were actually worthwhile. They pretended to do the jobs they were supposed to do, but when it came time to renew the subscription, all of a sudden the computer is infected and full of viruses and trojans and worms etc.

Chances are the various programs do, what they’re promising to do and only give that hype to get you to buy that service again. If that’s the case I don’t need that kind of pressure on my mind. But….

I did a scan with Trend Micro Housecall and that program found 10 or 12 bad problems. I deleted them of course only to have my pc acting up again as soon as I went on-line. So I scanned the computer again and was notified everything was clean.

Not knowing any better I figured everything was fine, and proceeded to go on-line and had the same problems all over again. It got so bad with, slowness, hyper-links that shouldn’t be there, pop-up ads, and a computer tech program slamming into my browsing experience.

I called the number and got a tech to look at my machine. I’ll relate that tale later, but for now I’ll tell you the end result of his findings. He poked around and showed me how I had 21000 error messages, and showed me some adware stuff in the files. He did not fix the problem, but told me I could buy something that would fix it and said it would cost me about $500 to be right with the net again.

I got it all fixed sort of, meaning now it’s an ongoing task to kill the beasts that got me. I did what my previous article said and spent 4 1/2 hours cleaning the system. And I did that with a free system, although I will send Malwarebytes a donation.

What is CoolSaleCoupon?

Hey folks, there is a bunch of adware running rampant.  My computer got infected and I thought you might want to check yours.

 

http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-coolsalecoupon-virus/
CoolSaleCoupon is advertised as a programs that displays coupons for sites you are visiting and competitive prices when you are viewing product pages at sites like Amazon. Though this may sound like a useful service, the CoolSaleCoupon program can be intrusive and will display ads whether you want them to or not.
The CoolSaleCoupon adware infection is designed specifically to make money. It generates web traffic, collects sales leads for other dubious sites, and will display advertisements and sponsored links within your web browser.

When installed, the CoolSaleCoupon browser extension will display advertising banners, pop-up advertisements and in-text ads, stating that they are brought to you by “CoolSaleCoupon”.
These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the CoolSaleCoupon publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.
When infected with CoolSaleCoupon the common symptoms include:
– Advertising banners are injected with the web pages that you are visiting.
– Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
– Browser pop ups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
– Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user’s knowledge.

How did got CoolSaleCoupon on my computer?

CoolSaleCoupon is an adware program that is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet.
Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed CoolSaleCoupon without your knowledge. CoolSaleCoupon is typically added when you install another free software that had bundled into their installation this adware program. Most commonly CoolSaleCoupon is bundled within the installers from CNet, Softonic or other similar custom third-party installers.

You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this CoolSaleCoupon adware. Be very careful what you agree to install.
Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place.
It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.

CoolSaleCoupon Overview:

CoolSaleCoupon will inject pop-up ads, advertising banners and in-text ads within your web browser
Adware detected in the CoolSaleCoupon program
Integrates into the web browser via the CoolSaleCoupon browser extension
Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle or with third-party software (example: CNET installer, Softonic Installer, InstallRex installer and many more)

Save The Internet

http://cerf.convio.net/site/Survey?SURVEY_ID=5740&ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&AddInterest=1341

There is trouble brewing for all of us internet users. I will ask you to urge the FCC to reclassify the Internet as a “common carrier” under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. That would protect “net neutrality” and ensure basic consumer protections for Internet service.

The big cable and telecom companies are leading the fight to completely deregulate Internet service. These companies want to squash competition, water down consumer protections, discriminate against certain web traffic, and spark higher rates and slower speeds for everyday consumers like us.

Consumers need the FCC to take a stand against these giants. Please, protect net neutrality and fight for the free and open Internet. Please, forward the petition to your friends so they can fight for the open Internet, too!

“Squatch” Is Technologically Challenged!

Breaking story out of Reno Nevada. (story written by Fe02, of the G.P.I. news service)
Squatch, also known as RGCORROS, who just happens to be the author of this blog, was found today to be technologically challenged, when he suddenly found he had 1796 e-mails in his Gmail account.
The incident occurred shortly after noon today, following the emptying of his primary account. “The overloaded mailbox, a Google construct, should have exploded from the lack of notice”, one of the technicians stated. Right on Rusty, an investigator for the extragalactic firm SQUATCHCO, located on the inner hard drive just outside Reno told reporters “the danger was real. Had the account reached max load, terabytes of digital area would have been decimated”.
According to local scientists, the explosive outgassing of the digital bomb would have sped away spherically, at the speed of light. Professor Jameson Reynolds Numerally, a renown digiphysiologist at U.N.S.S. spoke to the media at a press conference. He explained what the consequences would have been, if Squatch had continued to be a technomoron.
According to the science, E=MC sq. That M going at the speed of C is multiplied by itself, and there would be no deflection. All near digital space in four dimensions would simultaneously expand outwardly, pushing the cloud toward the constellation Magellan.
In a private interview with this intrepid reporter Squatch recounted what had happened and solemnly swore to “try harder to get it all figured out”. Squatch said he managed to clear all of the emails in his primary account, and when he couldn’t get to use his twitter account to the fullest, he knew he had a problem. “It was the damn twitter!” he grumped. Apparently he had to give an email conformation, and couldn’t find an email from them.
“I kept sending them my junk, and they kept saying your conformation email is in your box”. It turned out, there were two other buttons in the inbox. Anyone who ever used email knows how to use their inbox, except, Squatch it seems. The other two buttons were labeled, social, and promotions. Squatch denied being an antitechnogeek diligently, and tried to defend himself by claiming he had been ” living in the backwoods for nigh over 25 years, powerless and totally untechnolized “.
“I was just amazed when I pushed that word social, and there it was, you know…the damn twitter email I had been trying to get for four frigging hours” According to the self-proclaimed “almost know what to do” technomoron, Squatch said it was even more difficult than any webbie could ever imagine. ” There was the stupid email, so I could have taken care of the one stupid thing, and I noticed the social place was packed! I could feel the pressure mounting while I sat gaping at the social bin. I timidly touched the promotion button, and it just slammed open, jarring me physically! There ain’t words for the danger I was facing. There was stuff in there from 2011″.
According to Squatch he ” hurriedly did his tweet crap”. He commented on the terrible waves of energy he felt rumbling through him, and said ” all I could do was mark them all as read, check the box to delete the second 50 emails, and do that again, and again”. He recounted how after about ten times of doing the delete thing, the pressure started to diminish some. He said after about 40 times doing the delete 50 more, the mailbox spoke. “would you like to do a bulk delete?”.
“That’s what really tore me up” he ranted. He growled about how the *&@%?+= computer could have said something in the first place. He said he figured it wasn’t really his fault, it was the stupid computers fault. “When I think I had enough and am going to blow, I don’t wait for some nontechy type to push my right buttons”.
The City, County, and the State are currently in debate on the problems with these types of incidents. Antimoron groups are shouting in the streets, “nontechs back to the boondocks”, and ” remove retechtards now!”. A plan to reeducate retechtards has been put in place, to prevent other such incidents in the future.
” If laws aren’t enacted soon, it might mean the end of life as we know it “, one of the scientists bemoaned. “Already, we’ve found evidence this kind of drama, has happened in the past, and may well continue into the future”. No charges have been pressed on Squatch at the time of this article, but the repercussions of what has happened will certainly inspire our leaders to enact more stringent measures, to prevent future dumbassary.
Professor Jameson Reynolds Numerally commented on the subject, telling me about the evidence found recently, regarding this very issue. ” It’s all in the ice”, stated the professor. “Records show this has happened in the past, or maybe the future, and might have been the primary cause of the extinction level event, that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago”. Although the evidence is inconclusive, many theoretical physicists back up those statements.

Software and Hardware

I didn’t usher in the age of electronics and computers with enthusiasm. I wanted nothing to do with those “damn” things. I avoided using personal computers until 2002. At that time I was forced to use them. Chained to the desk, with a whip cracking over me as I tried to get away, forced to learn. Windows 98 was the starting point for me, and everyone told me just how easy it would be. I found it very easy…to crash the employment office’s system! They told me go ahead, you can’t hurt anything, just play with it for a while. I tried and ended up in some corner of cyber-space, where no one like myself had gone before. I thought I could find my way back, so I pushed a couple of keys and the system went offline.

Forward to a brighter future, I got the basics figured out, thanks to the instruction of computer geeks at a learning center. With that crash course I was able to open windows, and successfully navigate the

photo software

various software packages

2015-01-27_160520 more softwareworld-wide web, without further incident. That didn’t make me like computers. It only enabled me to fill out job applications without causing more problems, although that seemed to make the employment office happy.

In 2008 I got one of those stupid things for my very own. Yes, I got a computer and started to really play with it. The machine was not top of the line, nor a powerful brute. It was old, sluggish and ugly, truly obsolete, and just right for me. It was manufactured in 2001, placed in a storeroom at Office Depot, and overlooked until 2006. The poor old thing was then donated to the job fair as a prize, and my daughter won it! She used it for a time and then moved out of the house to see the world for herself. She gave it to me, to take care of and eventually got herself another one. So I had the means to really start to learn what a computer was, and what it could do.

The computer was able to take me online where I learned it was HARDWARE. I wasn’t too impressed with hardware. It was just another thing to catch dust, and it was constantly needing to be recharged. That was a chore in itself, as I lived in the woods without power and had to run a generator just to have modern lighting. I took the computer to town whenever I went, so I could go online and see what the “internet” was really about.

I found free programs on a site I landed on. Sourceforge.com, that’s the site. Free, always to my liking, appealed to me, and exciting programs I could download was just too good to be believed. I didn’t even give it a second thought. I Downloaded everything that caught my attention. I found out the site I had visited was full of “freeware” and “shareware”. It didn’t cost anything and I could experiment with different programs. I will have to blame that site for my newfound addiction. Software! It was like heroine, I couldn’t get enough. I had to try more. I filled my hard-drive with programs about anything I was interested in.

Software, I am still amazed with the stuff. You can’t feel, see, taste,hear or touch it, but it can do things in a way that inspires magic. It’s a wonder to me, as software is only “direction in machine language”. I wish I were as addicted to other directions, such as how I should have planned my future. Had those directions been as exciting as software, I just might have. If I had, had a clue earlier, I might have been inspired to go digital long ago.

Software comes in many forms although it can’t be seen. It is gray, but we all know there are 50 shades of gray. You wonder how I know this? Software is a gray area. This magical stuff, has actually been around even before computers were first built.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_software
Origins of computer science

An outline (algorithm) for what would have been the first piece of software was written by Ada Lovelace in the 19th century, for the planned Analytical Engine. However, neither the Analytical Engine, nor any software for it, were ever created.

The first theory about software – prior to the creation of computers as we know them today – was proposed by Alan Turing in his 1935 essay Computable numbers with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem (decision problem).[1]

In mathematics and computer science, the Entscheidungsproblem (pronounced [ɛntˈʃaɪ̯dʊŋspʁoˌbleːm], German for ‘decision problem’) is a challenge posed by David Hilbert in 1928.

This eventually led to the creation of the twin academic fields of computer science and software engineering, which both study software and its creation. Computer science is more theoretical (Turing’s essay is an example of computer science), whereas software engineering is focused on more practical concerns.

However, prior to 1946, software as we now understand it – programs stored in the memory of stored-program digital computers – did not yet exist. The very first electronic computing devices were instead rewired in order to “reprogram” them – see History of computing hardware.

So, software was a real boon to the modern world. Today we use modern computing devices and software everyday, and can’t even comprehend how we lived or functioned without it. Without software I wouldn’t be able to blog and describe any of this to you. Software goes at the speed of light, so we’ll be trying to catch up with it forever. Even though It can’t be seen with the naked eye, I did manage to get a picture of some before it sped away.

$$$ Big Time Online $$$

So, what’s this? I didn’t want to do another piece on the subject of making money on the internet, but it just keeps getting in the way. I have e-books that give ideas (proven methods) that tell me where to go and what to do. I have people who do the same thing, but it isn’t about making money online. I digress, sorry.
unfortunately I’m no technical wizard and can barely make a post on my blog. Almost everything online takes a fair amount of smarts, except maybe clicking on ads or commenting on websites. apparently a person could make money doing those things too.
I had a website for a couple of years, but I ended up moving and didn’t have easy access to the internet. I wasn’t able to work with the site, and it was going to cost more money to keep the thing going. I had thought putting ad words on it might help pay for its hosting, but that didn’t pan out.
So my experiences with the big w.w.w. have only made money for the internet. If a person has the smarts to do more technical things than just hunt and peck at the keyboard, there are about fifty things you can do to make money in cyber-space. I just don’t seem to have what it takes.
I think I can write, at least good enough that I can get a point across, but that doesn’t help much. I don’t consider myself an expert at anything. I lived off grid and can tell you how caveman did stuff, but most people couldn’t care less. Yet that is probably where my expertise is. Great niche, don’t you think?

So here are 25 ways to make money online that might work for you. I could tell you where to go and what to do, but if I save that info, I can write that out to you another time, ensuring I have a future post. Some of these possible money-making ideas won’t pay very much, and you may have to use two or three of these ideas to make enough to warrant doing.
I have another list with 75 more items on it that I’ll bring to you later, and even tell you what to do, or how to do it. Until then, I hope you find whatever you’re looking for and good luck with all of your endeavors.
