Blu-ray -A revolution in the storage world

Blu-ray, ahh...quite an interesting name...isn’t it? Blu-ray is an optical disc format of the next generation which was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD). The main purpose of this format is to store large amounts of data, more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs. The discs developed with Blu-ray format are called Blu-ray disc, shortly BDs . BDs can hold upto 25GB-50GB of data depending upon the number of layers on the disc. Now, you may get confused with this layer-language...Normally all the disc at the moment in use are single layered. But these BDs can be multiple layered.i.e the data can be stored in more than one layer on a single disc. If it is a single layer data upto 25GB can be stored and if it is a double layered disc it can be 50GB. And thats not all. This extra capacity is combined with advanced video and audio codecs to offer the consumers a HD experience.

The current discs such as DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, and DVD-RAM rely on a red laser to read and write data where as the new format discussed above uses a blue-violet laser instead which is why it is called Blu-ray. All the Blu-ray products are compatible with CDs and DVDs through the use of a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit. The reason why the blue-violet laser is used is because of its shorter wavelength than red laser. The blue-violet laser has a wavelength of 405nm
Where as that of red’s is 650nm. This makes it possible to focus the laser spot with even greater precision which allows more data to be stored in much less space. Hence it beats the professional CDs and DVDs in all their features. I had also learned that the recent development by Pioneer has dramatically increased the storage capacity to 500GB on a single disc by using 20 layers. Hahaha...isn’t it quite amazing?

Virtual PC 2007 SP1

Virtual PC

Virtual PC is a software that allows to run multiple operating Systems simultaneously on a single Computer/Workstation.
Virtual PC runs on the following operating systems:

· Windows XP Professional
· Windows XP Tablet PC
· Windows Server 2003
· Windows Vista Business
· Windows Vista Enterprise
· Windows Vista Ultimate.

By using Virtual PC we can create separate virtual machines on our Windows desktop each of which virtualizes the hardware of the entire computer. The main advantage of this Virtual PC is we can run the computer on two different virtual machines working under two different operating systems and also can switch between them as if we are working with two applications.

For some people all the software applications they might want to run may not work on the operating system they have in their computers. For them this is the apt solution. They can install Virtual PC without changing the system’s original operating system and install operating system in the virtual machine that supports their software applications. This not only makes it an easy way to solve the problem but also provides time-saving and cost-saving solution.


Virtual PC can be used under following scenarios:

· Simplify Migration: As discussed above run the software applications in the virtual machine instead of re-installing the entire operating system due to application incompatibility.
· Save Time: Restore the virtual machines to their previous state instantly.
· Configuration: Once installed Virtual PC can be configured to suit the requirements. It has many settings that makes it interact with the physical computer, allocating the resources and so on.
· Installation: It is very easy to install the Virtual PC. So as to say it is as simple as executing a set up file. Soon after installation it allows to create a virtual machine.
· Convenience: Users can switch between applications very easily. Individual virtual machines can be paused which stops using CPU cycles on the physical computer. Virtual machines can also be saved to disk and can be restored later. The restoration process is very fast, as fast as it takes only few seconds.


Virtual PC requires:

· A 400 MHz Pentium-compatible processor (1.0 GHz or faster recommended).
· Approximately 35 MB of disk space.

The following are the requirements for some of the operating systems that can be run as a guest operating system.

Guest Operating System

Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition - 64 MB(Memory) - 500 MB(Hard disk)

Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me) - 96 MB - 2 GB

Windows 2000 Professional - 96 MB - 2 GB

Windows XP Home Edition - 128 MB - 2 GB

Windows XP Professional - 128 MB - 2 GB

Windows Vista Enterprise - 512 MB - 15 GB

Windows Vista Business - 512 MB - 15 GB

Windows Vista Ultimate - 512 MB - 15 GB

Windows Vista SP1 (Business, Enterprise, Ultimate)512 MB - 15 GB

Windows XP SP3 - 256 MB - 3 GB

Windows Server 2008 - 512 MB - 20 GB

OS/2 Warp Version 4 Fix Pack 15, OS/2 Warp Convenience Pack 1, OS/2 Warp Convenience Pack 2 - 64 MB - 500 MB

*Note: Virtual PC can run most x86 operating systems, not just the operating systems listed above, in a virtual machine environment.
The above mentioned figures are the minimum requirements.

WinPc Defender

WinPc Defender - A Dangerous fake spyware

This is a malicious spyware in the internet. It is not only a fake anti-spyware application but very dangerous as well. WinPc Defender may enter into the PC due to following reasons:

1. Non-protected PCs from authorized anti-virus softwares.

2. Visiting websites which are not safe authenticated by a valid and authorized antyi-viruses.

The above figure shows a snapshot of WinPc Defender.

Consequences of WinPc Defender

1. Enters into PCs as a trojan application pretending to be a video codec and slowly effects the data stored.

2. It gets installed by itself and performs scanning of the PCs which are fake.In other words the real scanning of the PC does not happen but a pop up will be shown as if a scan procedure is going on.

3. Keeps on giving fake error messsages and pop-ups so as to scare the PC user to compromise and compell the user to buy the WinPc Defender original version.

4. Ruins the PC's safety and integrity from a large to greater extent.

This makes it a parasite in the internet and has to be considered a 'Rouge spyware'. However if the PC has a virtual machine installed , the virtual machine may not be effected by Win PC Defender.


  • Remove this application ASAP without delaying..The more it is delayed the more it gets worse effecting the data.

Primary option: Download a software called 'Malwarebytes' from the internet and perform a system scan. Then once WinPc Defender gets detected clean up the effected files. Then Restart the PC..

Secondary option: Clean up the entire PC by taking back up of the important files and formating it.

Why Malwarebytes ??

The usage of Malwarebytes is unique because the WinPc Defender may disable the antivirus software which is already in the PC making it unable to detect it once entered into the PC.

*Note: If the PC has already an authorized version of any anti-virus software ,it is recommended that the malwarebytes software be uninstalled after cleaning up the WinPc Defender, since it may cause confliction between itself and the anti-virus which has been already installed.
