Protect Your Computer With Returnil Virtual System 2010

Returnil Virtual System 2010 is a powerful combination of anti-virus, anti-malware and a virtual system that protects your computer from all types of viruses, trojans, adware, worms, keyloggers, rootkits, spyware and unwanted system changes. This program comes with an excellent virtualization feature that creates a clone of the actual operating system. This allows you to run your applications and perform all the activities in an entirely isolated environment.

Returnil Virtual System was installed smoothly in our computer. We had to reboot our system to complete the installation process. Virtualization feature was activated as soon as we returned to Windows. Once the virtualization feature is activated, a floating bar is visible on desktop as well as on top of all the applications.

You should check all the system requirements before entering into virtual mode. You should atleast have twice the space of your RAM, in order to access the virtual mode. You need to reboot your computer, in order to return to the previous state. The best part is that, all our downloaded files were deleted and all the changes we made in our system was returned to its previous state. This feature is extremely helpful in case of a virus attack.

This program also allows you to create and mount virtual drive, which can be used easily in the virtual mode. You can access all your files and folders in virtual mode with the help of in-built file manager. The virus guard included in this program provides real-time protection to your system against malware and virus attacks.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

The virtualization feature of this program is extremely useful. This program worked smoothly on our system without any lags even while installing it. It also allows us to select the data that we want to keep in the real system and discard other stuffs by simply selecting the files, folders and registry items. This program works on Windows7, Vista and XP.

Nokia N97 Mini Review

Few months after the launch of Nokia N97, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia, announced Nokia N97 Mini, a compact version of Nokia N97. Nokia N97 Mini is a full touchscreen phone that comes with a 5 mega-pixel camera and runs on Symbain S60 5th Edition OS.

Nokia N97 Mini has only 8GB in-built memory as compared to 32GB in-built memory in Nokia N97. This handset was recently released in the American, European and Asian markets. Before buying Nokia N97 Mini, make sure you have read this review by PhoneArena.com

nokia n97 mini

Ultimately, we like the Nokia N97 mini much better than its physically bigger brother. It comes with more appealing design, is made of materials with better quality and delivers improved in-call quality and operating system stability. Unfortunately, the N97 mini retains several of the shortcomings of the N97, like sluggish operational speed and limited video codec support. At the time of this review, the price of the N97 mini is slightly higher than what you would need to shell out for the N97, but this doesn’t change our opinion that the Mini is a better choice than Nokia ´s flagship handset.

Windows 7 Ahead Of Mac OS X In Market Share League

Within one month of its launch, Windows 7 is already ahead of Mac OS X in term of its market share. With the failure of Windows Vista, the market share of Windows has already been dropped in the past. But with the launch of Windows 7, the new operating system from Microsoft has started tasting its early success.

According to Internet metrics company Net Applications,
“Last Saturday and Sunday, Windows 7 powered an estimated 5% and 5.14% of all computers that were online those days. The two-day average of 5.07% was higher than the 5% of the market share that Apple’s operating system averaged for the week of Nov. 15-21″.

windows or mac

Windows 7 News has recently reported that, “It’s a clear indication that sales of Windows 7 are storming ahead and that Microsoft’s new operating system has indeed been extremely well received by the press, public and business. But with the total Microsoft Windows market share sitting at 92.5% it’s still got a huge mountain to climb to replace Windows XP and Vista on desktops around the world.”

Windows already have a good market share and with the launch of Windows 7, they are trying to prove that Microsoft will always be the winner in market share race. What are your opinions about the increase in market share of Windows 7? Which OS do you think is most affected with the rise of Windows 7?

Techie-Buzz Verdict

This program is simple and easy to use, but personally, I found something missing in this program. If by chance, you lose your album URL, then there is no way to recover it back, unless you haven’t cleared your browser history. All your images will be lost forever.

I think this program should have a “My Account” section, where it should store all the URL’s of the albums which we have uploaded earlier. Except this, all other features of the program are awesome. It will definitely save your precious time. Since the URL is short, you can share it with your Twitter friends as well.
