Steve Jobs Stanford commencement speech(2005)

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower," Steve Jobs.
And how well these words describe the man himself. For a man who takes home an annual salary of $1, it is surprising that Jobs regularly is in the list of the world's rich and powerful.
In his resume, Jobs says his objective is to look for a fixer-upper with a solid foundation. "Am willing to tear down walls, build bridges, and light fires. I have great experience, lots of energy, a bit of that "vision thing" and I'm not afraid to start from the beginning."

Using HijackThis to remove malware

HijackThis, a hijacker detector and remover was originally created by Merijn Bellekom and then later sold off to Trend Micro. HijackThis is a very popular browser hijacker detector used by majority of security analysers to identify the possible malware infections on a computer.

The problem with today’s malware is that they are very difficult to detect due to the advanced protective mechanisms used by them. Because of this, even a thorough scan by the latest updated anti virus or an anti spyware/malware  may miss out on the latest variants of a particular malware. In such cases, to make sure even the last traces of the malware is weeded out, security analysts suggest using HijackThis logfile through which they can analyse the registry and other program settings on a computer and based on the log, they can pinpoint towards the malware entry (and thereby their removal too) with greater accuracy.
