Norton sucks - Get over it!

I can't believe normal people fall prey for all the nice packaging and advertisements those idiots at Symantec make for Norton Antivirus. They tell a white lie as though it's the ultimate truth, and people believe it just because it's advertised like "We have the BEST anti-virus on earth." while their product actually sucks to the maximum and is in fact the worst you can ever buy.

1) Norton Antivirus is commonly known to slow down computers with their ridiculously designed slow code-base. If you buy a pretty modern normal computer, and try installing Norton on it, you'll notice that the computer slows down to being like a snail as soon as u get Norton installed.

2) Norton heavily interferes with the proper functioning of not one, not two, but many popular programs, causing headaches to normal computer users who are not tech-savvy enough to understand what's really happening. This causes them to either blame the problem on the software, or the computer, or Norton, or waste their money calling the bloody expensive Tech Support lines of Norton.

Guys, I know many of you have been conditioned by the smart brains of the advertising team of Symantec that Norton is the king of all anti-virus, but you do know that kings are only good in eating loads of food and watching girls dance. Kick the gluttonous king on his butt and get a real soldier, a real knight who fights the real war against viruses and trojans. And I assure you, food (your money) and girls (speed of your computer) will not be scarce anymore ;) Get AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition for home use: Click here!

  1. Sorry, Dude, but I have to disagree with you here (on the AVG part; the Norton part your spot on about). AVG is just as bad as Norton. In fact, for me, it was much worse . . . it crashed my system with every boot until I removed it. NOD32 is the way to go.

  2. Great article. I couldn't agree more. The guy above me ... probably got 3 different anti-virus products installed.

    Norton sucks ***!! It [AVG] found a ton of viruses, spyware, adware, malware, etc when Norton said no infections found!

    I can't believe those idiots over at Symantec and how useless all of their products are!

Disable auto save in JetBrains IDE software (IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, PhpStorm)

JetBrains provides the following IDE software:
IntelliJ IDEAPhpStormPyCharmRubyMineWebStormAppCodeCLion Google also provides Android Studio which is powered by the IntelliJ platform.

If you come from a different IDE such as Eclipse, you will be unpleasantly surprised to find that JetBrains-branded IDEs automatically save everything the moment you look away. The proponents argue that as you work on your project, you should not have to worry about saving files. But to others, this auto-save behavior which is enabled by default is a curse that catches them by surprise, and a shocking departure from the workflow they are very much used to.

You can change the behavior by altering some settings.

Stop having to click Unblock on every downloaded file

CAUTION: The blocking of downloaded files in Windows is a security and safety feature to help prevent your computer from being infected by viruses and other malware. Only disable this feature if you know what you're doing.

I had been plagued by this annoyance since the days of Windows Vista. Any downloaded file, no matter what browser I use, gets tagged as "blocked" by Windows. You can open downloaded documents even though they are blocked, but when you run a downloaded application (such as a setup file) you're presented with a "Security Warning" before you're allowed to run it. It's worse if you extract a downloaded ZIP file with the Windows' built-in ZIP management. Every extracted file is blocked by default.

Being a geek who finds unnecessary "security" prompts annoying, the first thing I do in Windows is to disable the User Account Control (UAC). But I couldn't quite figure out how to disable blocking of downloaded files until …

Group, Ungroup and Regroup disabled in Word

I was editing a Microsoft Word document which had a collection of shapes and text boxes grouped together. I wanted to modify some of the shapes, and therefore I had to ungroup them. But when I right-click the group and open the Group menu, all three options namely Group, Ungroup and Regroup are completely disabled or grayed out.I couldn’t figure out what’s wrong. This group of objects is perfectly ungroupable, and I can even select objects within the group. However, Microsoft Word 2007 is not letting me ungroup it.I searched the Internet for a solution, but did not find anything very useful. The closest I came across is this statement: “The type of Text Wrapping doesn't make any difference as long as it isn't In Line with Text.” (Link here)Anyway, I changed the text wrapping of the group of objects from ‘In line with Text’ to ‘Tight’ and viola! I could now ungroup it and edit it. The document got a bit messed up when I did so, but after I ungrouped, edited and regrouped, I cha…
