What’s the best Antivirus for Windows 10?

If you already asked that question you already have installed Windows 10 and maybe it’s time to choose your best antivirus solution. You should know that Windows 10 won’t be asking you to install an antivirus solution, not like Windows 7. From Windows 8, Microsoft includes Windows Defender in his own operating system release.

We will see how Windows Defender performs on Windows 10 and how good it is in protecting your computer from threats.

How good it is Windows Defender ?

Well, Microsoft Windows 10, come with a black box antivirus solution which scans each opened software and started program. But as we know Microsoft, Windows Defender is with many steps behind other antivirus solutions from the free market (Internet Explorer anyone? ).

But Windows Defender has many advantages. First of all, is already installed on the system along with the operating system, is way much lighter than it’s competitors and won’t attempt to collect your personal data as other antiviruses do.

Antivirus Windows 10

A golden rule is to keep your system up to date, installing all the updates whenever they appear and using a modern browser capable of installing updates itself. Try to avoid Internet Explorer, just a friendly advice. If you can do that that, you’re ok even with Windows Defender. Windows Defender received a decent score on antivirus testing sites. If you’re paranoid about security or if you work with sensitive information, install a dedicated solution like Kaspersky or BitDefender, who gets the best score. These two antiviruses are capable to protect the system with a 100% score.

Windows 10 come with other security filter called SmartScreen filter, that shouldn’t allow user to download and run malware software. Something similar is found in modern browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

On the other hand, if you usually download torrent files or other pirated software, a good advice is to skip the Windows Defender and go for a better antivirus software.

What is the best antivirus for windows

Still, what is the best antivirus for Windows 10 ?

It’s hard to tell. Depends a lot on user behavior. Everyone’s tolerance is different. We can make a list of what we may consider important and you can easily choose in which of these categories you belong:

  • If you want the best protection possible: You have to choose a dedicated antivirus method (Kaspersky Antivirus or BitDefender). If you want to have the best protection possible, take any of these two (not both of course 🙂
  • If you want a free protection: Avira antivirus may be the best choice for this category. Beware on installation to uncheck the Ask Toolbar. From time to time, avira will show a pop-up with advertising but if you’re ok with that, Avira it’s the best choice for this category.
  • The least intrusive and still free protection: You should be ok with Windows Defender. You won’t see any pop-up displayed by this antivirus, and the best thing of all, it’s free. Just remember to keep your computer up to date.

Combine antivirus with Anti-Malware solution.


You may want to try using beside a standard antivirus, a dedicated software which will protect your browser file integrity, keeping it’s plugins safe. For this case you should use MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit. This software would help to block all kind of nasty attacks (even zero day exploits). Please keep in mind that any solution you choose, won’t give you 100% safety. Make regular backups and keep your computer clean and up to date. Be sure you know what kind of programs you’re running and usually don’t execute them with Administrator rights, it will keep you away from most troubles.


Hiberfil.sys – What is it and how to delete it

Ok ok, I got it. You have some issues with Hiberfil.sys which is taking too much of your precious SSD
space. I’ve said already that it take too much space ? Well, this file can become a gigantic pain
for your SSD. You’ve tried already to delete the file but you end up reading this article, that’s
Well, the thing is you can delete the file and I’m gonna show you how to achieve this goal.
My system is a Windows 7, but you can delete the hiberfil.sys on each system even if your system
is Windows 8, Windows Vista or even the worst – Windows 10.

If you have a lot of memory on your PC, the file will be bigger.

But what is hiberfil.sys ?

Windows itself has two modes of power management. First one is Sleep Mode, which maintain your PC
running in a lower power state. Restoring from this mode is almost instantly, and you can resume
your work asap without waiting for the entire boot process to finish. All your documents will be
exactly in the same state, all windows in the same place and so on.
The second one is Hibernate. This power state wrote to hard drive entire memory content when PC is
going to Hibernate. On this mode, you can take off the power entirely. When the power is back on,
you will have to wait a few seconds until the memory is filled with the previous content and you
can resume the work from where you left.

Hibernate Hiberfil.sys
The “culprit” for this file is hibernate mode. As you already know, if this file is managed by
Windows (and hiberfil.sys it is) you cannot JUST delete it.
If you’re sure you won’t use this mode (personally I recommend Sleep Mode instead of Hibernate),
you can disable it.


How to disable Hibernate in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Press START button, type CMD but don’t press Enter, not yet. Right click on found CMD and select
“Run as Administrator”. When the window opens, type the following command:

powercfg -h off

Delete Hiberfil.Sys

When the prompt appear again, you can close that black and scary window.
Now, if you want to check, you should see that the Hibernate option doesn’t show up anymore in Shut Down menu.
Another thing, the hiberfil.sys disappeared too.

Disable Hiberfil.Sys

How to disable the Hibernate mode in Windows XP?

If you’re a dinosaur 🙂 , or just a simple XP lover, you should know that you can disable hibernation mode from XP much easier.

Disable Hiberfil.Sys windows xp
Just go to Control Panel and select Power Options and find the Hibernate tab. You can now uncheck the “Enable Hibernation” box and you’re done. Reboot the PC and you can delete the hiberfil.sys file.

DNS, How it really work ?

How DNS work on the internet?

I’m sure you probably heard about DNS stuff if you visit this page. But if you wonder how the entire mechanism works, I will try to do my best to explain the entire mechanism behind the DNS factory 🙂

First you need to understand how the internet really work. Whenever you type an address, like google.com your computer will translate this address into a numeric address called by geeks IP ADDRESS. Don’t get scared, the IP address is like a phone number you used to call. I’m sure if you’ll be lost without your phone agenda, and you won’t be able to memorize the entire phone numbers stored there. DNS server is a phone agenda, and whenever you try to call a “name”, he will try to find the “phone number” behind that name.

It’s a smart technology but also a weak point of the Internet. DNSes gets exploited too often by hackers to drive traffic to a specific website. They simply needs to change the “phone number” and when computers start to ask for the phone number, they receive the new number put there by hackers.

Ok, if you got it by now you should know that you can use some public “phone books” (aka DNS servers). Some of them can even protect your computer from malware website, inappropriate content and so on. It’s good to use a public DNS, like google public DNS server.

How you can change the DNS from your computer ?

Well, that’s a simple task, really. Right click on your current internet connection from your task-bar and click on “Open Network and Sharing Center”.

Change DNS from windows

From there, click on “Change adapter settings”. A new window will be opened where you’re going to see your adapters (wifi, ethernet and so on).

Dns Adapter settings

Select the device you want to set and press the right click on your mouse. On the new menu select “Properties

Select Internet Protocol Version 4, and double click on it. Now you should see the image presented below:

DNS properties adapter settings

Click on “Use the following DNS server addresses” and use the servers listed there. When you’re done, just press ok and you’re good to go. Now you will use the google DNS’es. Really simple isn’t it ?

Get A Totally Free Prepaid Virtual Visa Card

What can you do when you are in a position to purchase something from the internet but you don’t feel comfortable sending your credit card number to the seller, even if it’s over the phone or fax machine ? What can you do when you want to acquire a service from a website that you don’t trust, but you really have to ? I’ve found the best way to do that, without disclosing your real credit card information.  It’s totally free of charge, but you are free to deposit the amount that you wish to spend online using a virtual prepaid credit card (visa card) and is globally accepted. Instead of it’s plastic form, it came as a picture (virtual prepaid card) and you can use it straight away.

Free Prepaird Visa Card

Also, Entropay provides prepaid cards so you don’t have to worry about spending more than you have planned.
