2 Antivirus Programs are NOT better than 1 Antivirus

How many Antivirus program do you have in your system now?
1 = Good, keep Update it frequently, especially its Virus Database.
2 = Better choose and delete One of them soon!
3 = Oh my, quickly stop and get rid 2 of them if you want to safe your PC!
4 & more = Nothing to say. :|

That's somehow the way I react to anyone that have more than one antivirus programs in their system. Many people still think that 2 antivirus programs mean Double Protection which is better. But No, it's NOT.

Why 2 Antivirus Programs are not better than 1?

Before answering that question. Did you ever think what will happen,
if you got yourself 2 bodyguard from 2 different company? (especially if those 2 companies always compete each other.)
They will eventually fight to protect their customer. In this case, protecting your PC system from viruses. They could not just team up to do their job, at the very least they will double check on everything, every suspicious person, which will make everything takes time Longer. Wasting your Time, Money, and Energy to keep them = NOT EFFECTIVE.

The same thing apply for antivirus programs.
If you got 2 Antivirus programs, they will always fight to protect your PC System from viruses.
HOW? By scanning every files, every application, every services, every connection, everything even the other Antivirus as well Together and that will definitely make everything almost TWICE longer to finish.

It's been a long time since I got 2 Antivirus programs in my PC, but it's just fine.

Yes, it's just fine for now.
But realize it or not, there are some HIDDEN DISADVANTAGES when you use more than 1 antivirus program :
- you will feel your PC system running SLOWER than it should. That happen because:
--- those Antivirus programs scan everything Twice, Once with Antivirus A and Once with Antivirus B. It get worse if those Antivirus blocking each other because the file they want to scan is being scanned/accessed by other Antivirus.
--- they use more RAM than 1 Antivirus
- by accessed twice, your PC System will be more Easily gets ERRORS, Fragments, Bad sectors, cross-linked files, Freeze, Hang, BSOD, etc.
- and worse, by Antivirus blocking other Antivirus, your PC will become more VULNERABLE.

So what's the best thing to do with those Antivirus?

Delete 1 and leave only 1 Antivirus programs that you think protect your PC the most. And the most IMPORTANT thing is to UPDATE its Virus Database frequently.

It's USELESS, if you have 2 or more Antivirus programs but never update it.
It's the BEST, if you have 1 Antivirus program that you update daily.

Like all of us know, New viruses are made everyday every time.
Like us who need to know latest news every time,
Antivirus also need to learn and know those New viruses too to protect our PC. Antivirus learn by updating its Virus Database.

Simply having 1 Antivirus program installed in your Operating System and Update it daily is the BEST thing to protect your system.

Hope it helps you understand why 1 Antivirus program is BETTER than 2 Antivirus programs to protect your system from viruses. :)

[Tutorial]Recovering ASUS 1015PEM eeePC System with Embedded Windows 7

Years, yeah you could say it's been years since my last post. I admit it myself. :( I don't know where I'm going or doing. But I just get more busy these time on Senior High School class. So that's why I didn't post anything here that long. Anyway, I'm going to share a little but very useful tutorial for you who are using Asus eeePC.

Step by Step Recovering Asus 1015 PEM eeePC System with embedded windows 7 Starter

Today I got another work with an ASUS eeepc 1015 PEM Clam shell design from my school teacher. The eeePC got virus in the system and can't be recovered anymore, so I suggest him to re-install the fresh Windows. But when I asked him about the the recovery disc/windows 7 Starter disc, he said that there are no any disc in the package when he bought it. He just show me with some applications installer that stored in the D: drive, but that's not even driver or the image of windows 7 starter disc.

Silly me, I asked him to re-check it again at home. But nothing, and then I asked him to call to the seller. and the seller said it's there, inside the netbook..
I get myself to searching for what is inside this netbook package on Google. Some said there are CD, some not.. =="

Then I get myself to Google about video review on unboxing the eeePC ASUS 1015PEM and found out

From that video I found out How to boot into the embedded Operating System installer (by pressing F9 when starting the netbook), actually I'd read about it somewhere before but I forgot. :hammers.

Let's get back to the business:
1.Start your eeePC F9,
3.Fail! I got myself into windows 7 boot manager.

I tried each Function key on the boot (F) n got F2 to enter the BIOS. By pressing F2 on boot, the Bios logo screen will show up and there are some options came up either, like the F9 the recovery option. Bingo!

So the right steps should be:
1. Start your eeePC
2. press F2, wait few seconds until the BIOS logo shown,
3. then press F9, the screen should be showing "Windows is loading files . . ."
Now it's going load the recovery system/windows 7 starter,
5. choose English n hit the arrow
6. press Recovery
The system will start the process to install fresh windows 7 to you ASUS 1015PEM eeePC, so just follow the next steps shown. It's just like the usual windows 7 installation.

The screenshot will be updated later :)

It will delete all data in partition C:
, but the D: partition itself is safe in my experience. But to be sure, I backuped all files in D: to another media just in case. :D

Hope this simple tutorial helps answer your question ^.^ :

[Quick Tips] Cancel your CMD's command in process with Ctrl+C

Just a quick tips here.
Sometimes when you're working Windows Command Prompt or CMD, the command takes too much time to finish, just like Checkdisk(CHKDSK). And when it's in process, we need to use another quick commands(like dir) by cancelling current command in process.

To stop CMD or command prompt process, we can press "Ctrl + C" buttons. It will cancel the current process and let you input another command. It's more useful when you're using the command prompt in a non-GUI system, just like "repair" function in Windows XP installation disk.

FYI : Some commands or processes in CMD can't be stopped/cancelled with 'CTRL+C', but most of them do stopped.

Hope it will be useful to you.. ^.^

Dying Blog? No It's NOT.. New 3D Games by Mickeel

"It's been so long~" Just like Akon said in Right Now song.. ~ ~
It's been so long since my last post. In the meantime, I get excited with learning on developing 3D game with Blender. And now I made 2 W.I.P games which not really be games, but more likely a walkthrough only.

The first one is the game of my current school Sriwijaya "Sriwijaya Interactive 3D Walkthrough by Mickeel", which was finished when I'm still 16th years old, i think it was a young year to make a simple game like this :). I made the 3D models and import it into Blender and make it as walkthrough. you can walk around my school. But it's still not completed, because there still no chairs,whiteboards,table, and etc. However already can describe the basic building of my real school now..

Interested to see my Schools, Get the walkthrough at:
Sriwi Interactive V1.2 by ~

Not just one game, but there is another one which more likely a game, almost a game..
It's Aplaus The Maze game, even the score still not counting and still no goal. I uploaded to the internet. The Maze basicly designed and editted from a p l a u s letters. I'm still learning on making goal and scoring in the game right now.

Wanna Try??
Check it out >>>>> aplaus the maze game.rar ~

It's already Night here. I will continue sharing tomorrow.
Anyway feel free to contact me by 3mai1 mickeel_p{on} and also say if you know me from my blog..

[Trick]How to Show Original Standard Desktop Icons

Hi all,
very long time since my last post. I'm so sorry.

Anyway, I want to tell you how to show original standard desktop icons, remember it's the original one and NOT only shortcuts. The original that I meant was My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, and Internet Explorer. Because by default the desktop is lank and only an Original Recycle Bin icon shown, and as what I've saw so many people used the non-original(shortcut) icon for these icons.

Follow these steps to show original non-shortcut desktop icons
(my computer, my documents, my network places, and internet explorer):
1. Right-click on the blank part of your Desktop
2. click "Properties"
3. click "desktop" tab
4. click "customize desktop" button
5. Tick on all icons inside "desktop icons", ex: My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places, and Internet Explorer
6. OK and OK

Note: In some situation, we may can't find Internet Explorer in Desktop Icons.

Q:Why using the original icons for these icons?
A:Because the original icons gives us more options when right-click on them.
example: right-clicking on Original my computer icon, would give us additional options like "manage, map network drive, and disconnect network drive".

Q:Can we use those additional options without using those original desktop icons?
We can use them too, by right-clicking the same icon from "Modern Start Menu in XP".
But if you are using the classic start menu, the easier way to access it is by using these original standard desktop icons.

Hope it will be useful for you.
Thanks for my reader,
don't forget to follow my blog. ^^

n Have a happy Cap Go Meh for Chinese Reader too.

RE-Learn a 3D Program from 3DsMax to Blender

Hi everyone..

Just sharing something that I just did. Since 4th year Junior High School I learned Modelling n Animating with 3D Studio Max, because I want to be someone that can make cartoon just like in the TV. And now there were already some examples of I can do with 3Ds Max.
Just like:
1.X Dance ~ 3D Animation by 15years old Kid
2.[3D]2nd 3D Short Animation by 16th years old boy
3.and last project of making a Game Level of my house: [EXP]MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, Make a Game Level of My House Finished before 2009 End ^^

Now after I made agame level with Cryengine, I found an obstacle that make me a little disappointed. It's because the CryEngine can't make a Stand Alone Engine for the Game Level we made, instead we must use CryEngine to load our game level. I learned this game level making because found a simple walkthrough of a room, which packed under 1MB size and that make us easier to transfer it to another computer. Then I Tried CryEngine because can't find the tutorial about that program.

But Not Now, it's 2010, I Re-Search the Tutorial over the internet, found someone asking in the forum that was in a CERTAINLY SAME SITUATION as me, that is my way to find some Tutorials. And I Re-Learn the New 3D Program named BLENDER from Zero. ^^

OK.. I had been searching for resources, articles, tutorials, and everything about making a simple Walkthrough with Blender for a long time. But in these 2 last weeks I found 9 Pages of Blender Tutorial that was very helpful. Finally today, maybe I found the PRECIOUS Thread that someone that have the SAME SITUATION which contain Tutorials to make a walkthrough. He/She really have the same situation as mine, so take a look. ^^

Actually.. Since I bought Ebooks Collection of CHIP MAGAZINEs & found a Blender walkthrough sample, I really interested to make it, but I can't find Tutorial bout it anywhere. I just tried to start the Blender from the CD, and I blind, because I only learned a 3D Program (3D Studio Max) that time.

Until 2 days ago, I Re-Learn Blender from Zero. I really didn't know anything about using blender until now. But I think I can and I want to make that walkthrough as I found the Tutorials. I think maybe It will be useful for some people, so try ==>
There I found step-by-step tutorial of making a walkthrough using movement script in Blender.

Tomorrow I will try to find export Script from 3Ds Max to Blender, because I designed My house with 3D Studio Max and not Blender.

Then, I will need to learn and get used to Blender the Freeware, Powerful, and simply 3D Program from Zero. Along with this, I think it's a good opportunity to Learn Blender and Make a walkthrough with it. As many 3D Artists in Indonesian was using 3D Freeware Blender and publish their cartoon/animations to TV Station and Advertising.

AND MAYBE! The Best Opportunity is to get along with them working as 3D Artists.. ^^

Hope Me Luck, OK! ^.^
And Thanks for Reading, I'm just sharing my Experience these weeks, Next time will be Tips and Tricks. ~.^
