Now I’m feeling safer

It’s very important for everyone to get protected against viruses, spywares, etc. especially for those who’re using the internet as a frequently and those who’re using Microsoft Windows™.

These days Microsoft is working a lot on security. It released Windows Defender in windows update and since Windows Vista released, Windows Defender is a part of Windows. It’s releasing monthly security updated to keep its users protected. But as a matter of fact, you’re never protected without a reliable antivirus software. For this, Microsoft released Windows Live OneCare; but as I checked out Top 10 antivirus software ranking, you cannot see it! You cannot see Norton Antivirus, MacAfee Antivirus and Panda Antivirus either!

My BitDefender Internet Security - Photo taken by myself If you check the ranking out, you’ll realize that BitDefender Antivirus is in the first place, Kaspersky Antivirus is in second, Webroot Antivirus is in third! After I checked this out, I said to myself “OK Mohammad, Lets be honest, I need an antivirus software. I have to choose because my AVG is going to expire this week. So what I have to do? I NEED A BITDEFENDER!!!

I’ve bought it!!! and now I’m feeling safer and because I’m using the internet a lot, preferred to buy BitDefender Internet Security 2009 as you can see!

If you’re really want to choose an antivirus or internet security software you need to choose BitDefender because:

  • It’s not expensive: only $39.95 for 3 PCs and 1 year of subscription!
  • It won’t slow down your computer.
  • It will scan your PC, emails, encrypts your IM conversations
  • It has a new File Vault that securely stores your personal information (Outstanding feature)
  • It scans your computer very face (It scans my 320Gb hard drive in less than 40 minutes)
  • It has a new family network protection.
  • It has a very useful game mode protection that enables you to play games like when you haven’t an antivirus.
  • And it has 24/7 free support.

For the last part, please check out one of its user’s reviews:

For those seeking the best antivirus software for the money AND an “install and forget” proposition, BitDefender is the right choice earning the “TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award.” Not only does it protect your computer and files, but BitDefender is easy to use, light on your computer and, maybe most importantly, light on your pocketbook.

No matter how technically capable any piece of software may be, the productivity enhancement it offers is only effective if people use it. This is especially true in antivirus software. The primary reasons people fail to protect their computers from a variety of malware are the cost and the ‘burden’ of installing and maintaining antivirus software. The best protection in the world is worthless if people find it cumbersome and distracting to use.

The same holds true for price. This is the beauty of BitDefender: It provides comprehensive protection, takes up little space on your computer, costs less and requires little maintenance. If you’re a gamer you should consider the special GameSafe edition of BitDefender Antivirus.

Useful Regular Expressions

Today I’ve developed a class library which manages some text validations and named it “RegularExpressions.cs”. It was an easy-to-develop class but, some of the expressions were good.

In this post, I’m going to name some of the most useful regular expressions, you may need in your usual developments.

  • I’m fresh.
  • I can choose better clothes.
  • It improved my self-confidence.
  • It’s easier to exercise.
  • Workout became a habit.
  • I’m eating healthy foods instead of fatty foods.
