How to Prevent Virus Infection from USB to Your PC (Antivirus for USB)

The most common carrier of virus to your PC or laptop is the external storage like the USB. Aside from the usual prevention like scanning the USB by an antivirus before opening any files from it, an effective way (and the most convenient way I ever tried) is the use of USB drive vaccination. I've been using Panda Security's USB and Autorun Vaccine. How it works...? It works through COMPUTER VACCINATION and USB DRIVE VACCINATION:

Panda USB Vaccine - free antimalware to block malware spreading through USB drives.

There is an increasing amount of malware which, like the dangerous Conficker worm, spreads via removable devices and drives such as memory sticks, MP3 players, digital cameras, etc. To do this, these malicious codes modify the AutoRun file on these devices.

Panda USB Vaccine is a free solution designed to protect against this threat. It offers a double layer of preventive protection, allowing users to disable the AutoRun feature on computers as well as on USB drives and other devices:

Vaccine for computers: This is a ‘vaccine' for computers to prevent any AutoRun file from running, regardless of whether the device (memory stick, CD, etc.) is infected or not.

Vaccine for USB devices: This is a ‘vaccine' for removable USB devices, preventing the AutoRun file from becoming a source of infection. The tool disables this file so it cannot be read, modified or replaced by malicious code.

This is a very useful tool as there is no simple way of disabling the AutoRun feature in Windows. This provides users with a simple way of disabling this feature, offering a high degree of protection against infections from removable drives and devices.

How to Insert a Simple HTML Coding for an Image That Links to a Website?

To insert a simple HTML Coding for an image that links to a website (when the image/photo is clicked it directs to another website or another page of your site), the following is a general pattern:

1) [ YOUR SITE / LANDING PAGE URL HERE ] will be your blog's URL/address; when people click on the image they will be directed or brought to your site.

2) [ target="_blank" ] will open a new window to your site when the photo is clicked. Change 'blank' to 'top' if you want them to open in the same window.

3) [ ALTERNATE TEXT ] is the text that will appear in case the photo URL is not loading yet, because sometimes photos do not load always due to bandwidth reasons.. so, think of a text that will represent the photo or your site (usually it's the website name).

4) [ IMAGE URL HERE ] is the file address of your image.  Your image/photo should have been uploaded in image hosting sites like flickr, photobucket, picasaweb.

5) [width="420" height="137"] adjust your image or photo size by changing the width and height values; if you want to use your original uploaded image size, just remove the whole code [width="420" height="137"].

a. if you are inserting a photo/image from your computer to your blog post... after inserting the photo/image, go to "Edit HTML" tab and change the URL next to the code href=" , as in Step 1 above.

b. if you are inserting a photo/image in the sidebars or top/bottom bars of your blog specifically in blogger, you can either insert through the "Layout", then "Add a Gadget", choose "Picture" and enter the data asked; or choose "Java/HTML" gadget and enter the HTML code as in the pattern above.
A sample image/photo HTML coding below directs users to the site, "You're Beautiful Episodes", when the image is clicked.  Notice the values/parameters I entered in blue text. The original image size is 500x400 pixels, but I made it 50% smaller, maintaining the WxH ratio as to not distort the image.

You're Beautiful Episodes 
Korean TV Series, "You're Beautiful"

How do I buy an item on Ebay?

Resolved Question (author of this blog is chosen as best answer in Yahoo! Answer)

How do I buy an item on Ebay?
I found item I want, now I guess the dumb question is, if I want it, just enter the minimum bid and wait? Not that I forsee it but can I withdraw my bid at some point?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
Well, first thing first --- create an ebay account.
Search for the item you'd like to buy or bid.
You can directly by an item if it has the "Buy Now" bottom.
You need to bid on an item when it displays a "Minimum Bid" amount.
Tip: do not right away bid at a higher amount when the bidding end date is still far; this is to control the end bid at a lower price, unless, you want to secure your bid to get the item.
I haven't tried withdrawing a bid, but I'm sure you'll get a bad rating if you don't pursue or buy your item if you won the bid. I have tried though, to contact the seller days before the end date and informed him that I cant continue bidding and ask for an apology. He acknowledge and accepted my reasons and just relist the item again for bidding, without giving me a bad rating.
