Hundred Swords-PC return review

This game I had completely forgotten about until recently while going through one of my dead computers hard drives back when CD's were the main way to play PC games and DVD's were just starting to take over this 1.1GB install was spread onto two disks the Obligatory Install disk and the Game disk(nothing more than another install disk with a anti piracy measure.)Never have I been thrown on a nostalgia trip this strong though playing it again I noticed this game is incredibly dated.

Just recovered from a Router infection.

I just recovered from quite the odd virus infection one that cases popups on all web browsers no matter what website visited Infected web browsers included Safari, Opera, Firefox, google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and even the Steam client Steam browser. One of the notable pop ups is the appimat fake adobe update site. A temporary fix for this infection is Adblocker Plus as it blocks most popups and the like anyway.

End of Windows XP support Worries.

Windows XP support has Ended 4/8/14 is it worth to keep using the OS?Is it safe to use? Really this is fairly simple to answer

Offline is Perfectly safe obvious right? Yes as long as the internet can't connect to your computer hackers viruses can't get in unless you install an unsafe program from a USB drive or CD.

Online for the most part is still safe don't trust fishy programs protect your computers using Antivirus , firewalls, Antispyware, Update your programs like flash, java, adobe reader, and your browsers (for god sakes dump Internet Explorer XP only supports IE up to Version 9 thats already far out of date not mention IE  of the worst and unsafe browsers out there.) An earlier article going into more detail on how to prevent infections can be found Here.

As most of you know many of these nasty things lie within the internet they are known to be masters of disguise hiding in the most innocent of places so the most simplistic solution is to not go online but who am I kidding the internet is now a near necessity for many of us so comes the next solution the majority of them hide within ads simply ignoring them and clicking them help but some of the ads just cannot be ignored they annoy you to click on them to shut them up so blocking them is next best thing to do and will tremendously help.
