Facebook Launch E-Mail Service..........

                  Facebook has announced a new product that will compete directly with the e-mail services provided by Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, and AOL. Facebook believes traditional e-mail is too slow and cumbersome; it needs be brought into the modern world of messaging. The site has thus launched Facebook Messages, which merges texts, online chats, and e-mails into one central hub. Users see all of them in their Social Inbox and can reply in any way they want. The social networking giant says this product is the biggest it has worked on to date.

Facebook Messages' main goal is to ensure users "see the messages that matter". Facebook has 500 million users (more than any other e-mail service) and all of them will eventually be offered a e-mail address. That being said, the new system will be closer to chat (messages get sent when you hit the Enter key) than traditional e-mail: there will be no subject lines, nor cc or bcc fields. Incoming message will be placed in one of three folders: Friends, Other (for things like bank statements), and Junk. Users can choose to store conversations so that they can have a complete archive of communications with a given person...

The new product will be introduced slowly over the next few months. Once you receive an invitation, you'll be able to get started and also invite friends.

           "This is not an e-mail killer," Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg announced. "Maybe we can help push the way people do messaging more towards this simple, real-time, immediate personal experience. E-mail is still really important to a lot of people. We think this simple messaging is how people will shift their communication."

About Microsoft Security Essential : ......

                                   Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a free antivirus software product created by Microsoft that provides protection against different types of malware such as computer virus, spyware, rootkits and trojan horses for Windows XP (x86), Windows Vista, and Windows 7 (both x86 and x64). Microsoft Security Essentials replaces Windows Live OneCare, a commercial subscription-based antivirus service and the free Windows Defender, which only protected users from adware and spyware. Unlike Microsoft Forefront family of enterprise-oriented security products, Microsoft Security Essentials is geared for consumer use....

Features : -

MSE is a security suite designed for consumers and lacks centralized management features which are found in Microsoft Forefront Client Security. It includes the same anti-malware engine (dubbed "Microsoft Malware Protection Engine", or MSMPENG for short[not in citation given]), and virus definitions that all other Microsoft desktop anti-malware products share, including Forefront Client Security, Windows Live OneCare, and Windows Defender[not in citation given] (Defender excludes the antivirus definitions which are separate from the antispyware definitions). Before installation, MSE checks for the validity of the installed copy of Microsoft Windows. MSE requires no registration or personal information. MSE will disable Windows Defender, as it provides protection against malware, not limited to spyware and adware.

In February 2010, a rogue security software package calling itself "Security Essentials 2010" appeared on the Internet....

Limitations : -

   * It Reqiures Genuine Microsoft Windows....
   * We have to face many Errors regarding to Microsoft Security Essential Update...

                  After seeing this limitations....this Limitations can be afford from my point of view,Microsoft Provides a FREE Antivirus System for their Users..,And It Work very well I think.....So go for M.S.E ......

Create a file of any size....

    • You can create a file of any size using nothing more than what's supplied 
    with Windows. Start by converting the desired file size into hexadecimal 
    notation. You can use the Windows Calculator in Scientific mode do to this. 
    Suppose you want a file of 1 million bytes. Enter 1000000 in the calculator 
    and click on the Hex option to convert it (1 million in hex is F4240.) Pad 
    the result with zeroes at the left until the file size reaches eight 
    digits 000F4240. 

Now open a command prompt window. In Windows 95, 98, or 
Me, you can do this by entering COMMAND in the Start menu's Run dialog; in 
Windows NT 4.0, 2000, or XP enter CMD instead. Enter the command DEBUG 
BIGFILE.DAT and ignore the File not found message. Type RCX and press 
Enter. Debug will display a colon prompt. Enter the last four digits of the 
hexadecimal number you calculated (4240, in our example). Type RBX and 
press Enter, then enter the first four digits of the hexadecimal size 
(000F, in our example). Enter W for Write and Q for Quit. You've just 
created a 1-million-byte file using Debug. Of course you can create a file 
of any desired size using the same technique...

SOPHOS :- Free Anti-Virus for Mac......

It is the fact that the number of viruses, Trojans, and other threats targeting Windows is greater than the number of those targeting the Macintosh. However, 95 percent of those responding to a survey conducted by Sophos believe that Macs will be targeted more and more in the future.

So as to deal with this growing threat, Sophos on Monday informed the launch of Sophos Anti-Virus Home Edition for Mac. Thanks to free for home use, this tool will detect customers against all known malware, consisting of both Mac- and Windows-specific threats such as Trojan horses, viruses, worms and spyware. Most of other security companies seem to approve with this solution.

So as to deal with this growing threat, Sophos on Monday informed the launch of Sophos Anti-Virus Home Edition for Mac
In the previous month, Panda Security introduced their $49.95 Panda Antivirus for Macintosh, noting that their labs see about 500 new Mac-specific threats every month. Panda states that phishing and other social engineering attacks aren’t clear to any platform. It is reported by Sophos that a number of other threat types have influence on the Mac platform consisting of malware disguised as pirated software on P2P sites. In addition, there are other erotic video links that ask for a codec which turns out to be malicious, and Windows malware passed using the Mac as a carrier.
According to Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos, Apple has tacitly admitted the trouble. However, most people don’t know that Apple acknowledged the malware problem by integrating rudimentary protection against a handful of Mac Trojans in Snow Leopard. Sophos also stated that the product supplies automatic on-access detection that runs in the background, which means Mac users don’t need to run any manual scans…Moreover, strong disinfection capabilities make it easy to clean-up an infection and malware that already be in place.
At the current time, Sophos Anti-Virus Home Edition for Mac is available for download. Sophos has also set up a dedicated Mac support forum to help consumers with Mac-related malware problems.
