How to get rid of HDD Low Rogue Malware

3 Jan

My laptop was recently infected with the malware, HDD Low.  Here is a foolproof way on how to get rid of it.

1. Restart computer and run safe mode with networking.  On XP, that means you press and hold “F8” during the restart.

2. Install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Make sure you update the database before doing anything else.

3. Run a full scan of your C drive.  This may take a while. Note: DO NOT restart after the scan is over!

4. Delete anything that has been detected.  Mine detected around 10 problems.

5. Next, install CCleaner.

Make sure the “Cleaner” option (as opposed to registry etc) is selected.  Make sure all the boxes are checked off.  Click “options” on the side, click “advanced,” and uncheck “Only delete files in the temp folder older than 24 hrs.”

6.  Click on “Cleaner” again, and run “analyze.”

7.  Next “run cleaner.”

8. You should be HDD Low-free as of this point!

9. As an added precaution, download a registry repair program to fix any problems in your registry.  Make sure you set a restore point before using a registry repair program, in case anything important gets deleted.  I used this one:

How to Master the Art of Sleeping during the day (or night)

17 Oct

If you are a slacker, college student, or workaholic, then you have most likely felt the need to take a nap in the middle of the day. Some people have issues falling asleep in the middle of the day, so they are unable to catch up on their “sleep debt.”
There is a SOLUTION.
Buy a SLEEPING MASK! They will block out the light that lets your brain know it’s daytime. Additionally, after a few uses, you will learn to associate the sleeping mask with SLEEP. Thus, every time you wear it, you will fall asleep like a baby.

The same solution applies if you have issues falling asleep at night. Normally, at night, your brain produces high levels of melatonin to help you fall asleep. If you have problems sleeping at night, then buy MELATONIN; an over-the-counter supplement to help promote sleep. Be sure to follow the directions on the supplement’s bottle to avoid forming a dependency on the supplement.

If you are regularly tired, even though you are getting enough sleep, then add exercise into your daily routine.

Sweet dreams!
