Comodo is a company famous for its free security products and especially for their firewall technology. They also provide commercial versions of their products, which have more built-in security features than the free ones. One of their top products is Comodo Internet Security Pro 2012, which we chose to cover in today’s review. If you want to know how each protection module fares, don’t hesitate to read this review.

A few weeks ago, some of our readers asked us to recommend the best programs for managing the Windows startup. We decided to listen, do some thorough testing and share our recommendations. If you asked yourself: "Which startup manager should I use?" don’t hesitate to read this analysis.
I had never heard of the Head First series of books before I got this one to review, so I was really surprised by the way these books approach their subjects. I’ve read a lot of technical books in my lifetime, but never one like this!
Even though we tested Trend Micro in the past, here at 7 Tutorials, I did not get the chance to use it for myself and test it on my own computers, prior to this review. When testing it, I was surprised to find a unique approach to computer security. Therefore, if you want to know more about Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012, why is it unique and how effective it is, you should read this review.
I think it’s safe to say that nearly everyone who’s had to use email on the job has used Microsoft Outlook. I was one of many people who learned just enough about it to get by, and never thought of it as anything more than an email program that could also print calendars. My boss knew less about Microsoft Outlook than I did, so I always printed out the departmental calendars for her. So, imagine my surprise when I saw the title of this book! Using Microsoft Outlook for time management and organization? This, I had to see. Could it be used that way even by people with only basic skills? I was very eager to find out.
Today we welcome AVG Internet Security 2012 to our round of reviews. The suite is developed by the Czech company AVG Technology and one of the commercial alternatives to the free and very popular AVG Antivirus. In this review I will evaluate how much AVG improved the 2012 edition compared to previous versions and find out if it has become a security suite we can recommend to everyone.
Reading the title of this book review - I’m sure you have an ironic smile on your face. Why would a blog about Windows, for Windows users, review a book about Steve Jobs? Because no matter how much he berated Microsoft and Windows, Steve Jobs had a great influence on the tech world and contributed to the exciting & privileged context in which we find ourselves today. Should a Windows user (or fan) read Steve Jobs’s biography by Walter Isaascon? Read on to find out.
A while back, we published an article about risks to watch for when downloading & installing free software. While we had an idea of how damaging it can be to perform quick (or typical) application installations, without carefully reading what you are about to install, we really wanted to have numbers and real tests done to evaluate the full impact. I managed to find two days to spend on making such tests and here are the results: 8 real ways you will ruin both the performance of your system and your computing experience, if you choose to make quick (or typical) applications, without reading through the installation steps.
F-Secure Internet Security is a suite which traditionally fared well in our tests, here at 7 Tutorials. The Finish company has joined other important security vendors in launching the 2012 version of security products, which bring a few changes compared to previous versions. I took F-Secure Internet Security 2012 for a spin, to see if the new version is still worthy of being considered one of the best security suites on the market. Let’s see what were my findings.
2011 brings BitDefender into their tenth year of existence. This milestone also ushered in a new company philosophy, corporate identity and just recently an updated line of security products. With this release comes a brand new interface and several new additions targeted at making your online experience a safe one. In this review we will focus on the BitDefender Internet Security 2012 product - we will spend time looking at the quality of protection and work to determine if the interface changes are indeed improvements.

These days you can find quite a few programs that promise to help you recover accidentally deleted files. It is great to have lots of options but, which program is really good at helping you recover deleted files? Which deliver on their promise? To find out, I tested some of the most popular applications in this niche, most of them being free. Let’s see what I discovered.
Even though there are plenty of available solutions, home computer security is far from being perfect. One of the main reasons is that, in the feature rush, many developers forget about the most important piece in the puzzle: the user. They design extremely complicated security solutions with lots of features which normal users don't understand and have no clue about how to use them. Our team has been on a mission to find those security solutions which are easy to learn and use for most (if not all) people. This is why we intend to find out who has not failed to remember who they are writing software for.
In this article I will be taking about the changes we made in our approach to this series, describe how we test each product and explain what each badge is supposed to mean.
