Ransomware is computer malware that installs covertly on a victim's computer, executes a cryptovirology attack that adversely affects it, and demands a ransom payment to restore it. Simple ransomware may lock the system in a way which is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse, and display a message requesting payment to unlock it. More advanced malware encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. The ransomware may also encrypt the computer's Master File Table (MFT) or the entire hard drive. Thus, ransomware is a denial-of-access attack that prevents computer users from accessing files since it is intractable to decrypt the files without the decryption key. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan that has a payload disguised as a legitimate file.

SSD stands for a Solid State Disk. is a solid-state storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology primarily uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block input/output (I/O) hard disk drives, which permit simple replacements in common applications. 
SSDs have no moving mechanical components. This distinguishes them from traditional electromechanical magnetic disks such as hard disk drives (HDDs) or floppy disks, which contain spinning disks and movable read/write heads. Compared with electromechanical disks, SSDs are typically more resistant to physical shock, run silently, have lower access time, and lower latency. Usually are X10 times faster than a traditional Hard Disk. 

A gaming computer is a personal computer designed for playing computationally demanding video games. Gaming computers are very similar to conventional PCs, with the main difference being the addition of gaming-oriented components such as one or more high-end video cards. Gaming computers are often associated with enthusiast computing due to an overlap in interests. However, while a gaming PC is built to achieve performance for actual gameplay, enthusiast PCs are built to maximize performance, using games as a benchmark. The difference between the two carries a large discrepancy in the cost of the system. Whereas enthusiast PCs are high-end by definition, gaming PCs can be subdivided into low-end, mid-range, and high-end segments. Because of the large variety of parts gaming computers are typically custom-made.

The internet is not a secure place by any means, even the most advanced users can be infected without even notice it. Many people think that you can only get malware by downloading suspicious files, running unpatched software and visiting the wrong websites. This is not true! No matter how smart think you are, you can still benefit from an antivirus on Windows. An antivirus is your final layer of protection and most of the times is doing a great job. Viruses can cost you thousands in computer-replacement costs and cause you to lose very important documents and photos. The best anti-virus software can thwart 99.99 percent of known viruses. So think again if you need one or not!

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an advantageous way to ensure more traffic your website. More than 80% of internet users search sites such as,, etc when they are looking for something on the web. Most people are not going to view pages and pages of search results to find what they are looking for. 42% of people are going to click on the first item that comes up in an internet search and you are going to want your product to be in that first spot.

This is where SEO comes into play. You cannot purchase that top spot. The businesses in that top spot are the ones with the most or the highest rankings based on the results of the search engines.

Facebook is a really nice tool for a free startup and reach a lot of people but it has a lot of limitations also. Facebook page lacks of brand control. You can put your background photo on it, you can have your logo as the profile picture your posts have your own comments, the photos you wanna show, who you are and the services you provide.

But still a Facebook page and will never give the complete brand experience that a dedicated website will. With a website you will be able to set up your emails as a pro e.g. ( without any further costs.
