PART 1 1. INTRODUCTION: When you are starting with your first SEO project, you may feel as if you have been told to empty the ocean with a teaspoon, there is so much to know and so much to do. Well, don't freak out, it is not as bad as it sounds. You simply have to look at it as a series of tasks to be done. The U.S. military works this way; they look at a goal (say "Force the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany") and break it down to what needs to be done, how they can do …

Last year, CryptoLocker ransomware [hit the headlines](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/470427/cryptolocker-250k-infections-in-100-days-nets-300000-or-does-it) after infecting hundreds of thousands of computers and encrypting the data, and backups of that data to any connected device, with the promise of decryption on payment of a fee. This kind of IT extortion is profitable for the bad guys as it targets the people who are least likely to be in a position to do anything but pay; the people who are most likely to get infected are the same folk who are least likely to have an offsite backup or know how to get help with such a problem.

There are two very obvious truths which need to be stated before going any further: Truth 1 - prevention is better than cure, so don't visit 'dodgy' sites or download anything anyone sends you a link to, and do keep your PC as secure as possible with the help of security software such as real-time malware scanners and firewalls. Truth 2 - when it comes to malware there is no single 'removes it all' solution, there are far too many malware variations out there from rootkits and zero-day exploits through to long-established malware families which are continuously evolving in order …

Many of you know how to hide your important files and folders and burn them to disc to keep them from being accessed from other users, but if you your drive has so many files that it would take too long to copy all to disc, then why not hide the entire drive. Two methods, 1st one involves editing the registry, so again, back it up; 1st method found here; [url]http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/hide-drives-from-your-computer-in-windows-vista/[/url] 2nd method: Control Panel/System and Security/Administrative Tools, click on Create and format hard disk partitions, right click the drive you want to hide and remove the drive letter.

**How do passwords work?** What a password isn't, or at least really shouldn't be, is some kind of secret word or phrase that is simply compared against a table of usernames in a login database. Such plaintext systems are about as secure as a chocolate padlock on a furnace door. Even a login system whereby those passwords are encrypted isn't much better, although many people assume they are safe as houses. Breaches across the years have proven how insecure any system which relies purely on reversible algorithm encryption really is. The user logs in and enters a password, this triggers …
