There is website that will make you a key, just by snapping a photo of the key. It cost five dollars(including shipping) and you will have a new key within two days. I can’t see a ton of uses for me personally, but if the only reason I had to run to the store was to get a key made, I’m sure I can justify that after gas and the cost of a new key at a retail location, it’s probably close to the same cost. The website is www.shloosl.com and is just the newest answer to “What’s next????”
Leo Laporte, The Tech Guy explains it best here on his Video. There are ways to remove a virus, but since so many of the new virus’ are attaching themselves to the operating system, removing them can cause Windows to stop functioning correctly. The only absolutely sure way to deal with it is to completely wipe the hard drive and overwrite it, then re-install it on the now blank hard drive. Be careful if you have to back up off the already infected drive, as now you have no way to know if your back up is clean. If you do have to back up some files, try to limit them to the most basic, like some photo’s and documents. That can help reduce the risk of backing up the virus itself.
Below is a dorky video explaining some free software for wiping the hard drive. He recommends Dban (boot and nuke). That will erase (over and over), by writing one’s and zero’s in every spot on the hard drive. This makes it nearly impossible to read after it’s done.
