Computer Clean-up using UVK

If you think your computer is free from viruses, malware, adware etc you may be living in a fools paradise. I pride myself on running a clean computer. After a few strange browser crashes today I decided to follow the advice in the attached video. To say I was surprised at what this clean-up revealed would be an understatement. Britec 09 is a well trusted source of info, check out your system NOW, you maybe surprised what you find...

The video demonstrates how to use a free program called UVK.

This free program is available as a portable version which can be used from a USB drive even if your computer is infected with malware virus, trojans, worms and real nasty bootkit. Britec09  will show you how to remove these using UVK.


How to Avoid Paying Ryanair Travel Insurance

 Have you ever booked a Ryanair flight and been stuffed by what appears to be their compulsory travel insurance? There are a number of postings on the Internet offering solutions to this problem but they all seem to be out of date as Ryanair has changed their page layout. Here is the solution I discovered.

Ryanair has constructed its ticket sales architecture in such a way as to make it difficult for occasional users to avoid buying overpriced insurance. Well here is how to avoid it... When you get to the Travel Insurance section: Click on the "Country of Residence" box and look for the strange country called "Don't Insure Me" between Denmark and Finland and select this option!  See the photograph below.

There are so many reasons why you would not want to fly Ryanair, this is just one of many.

If you want a few more reasons check out the travel blog of Marie-Eve Vallieres at "To Europe & Beyond".
