How to protect your PC from the latest ransomware called not-petya

Ok, so this is just to help anyone on a PC who is afraid of the ransomware virus called "not-petya". It’s a pretty nasty ransomware and I found this batch file on the internet which will vaccinate your machine against it.
 
It works by creating three empty files that can’t be overwritten with the same name that the virus uses. Then if the virus tries to get on your system, it can't save to the hard disk, so it simply won’t work.

Take a look at this screenshot. When I saw “No posts Found”, I started frantically looking online for a solution.

Sound familiar? You changes something in Wordpress and now the fusion builder button is not appearing in your post or pages, instead all you see is code. I’m not talk bout the little Fusion shortcode generator button, I’m talking about the big Fusion Builder button which allows you to build pages using the Fusion Builder, you’ve lost it, it doesn’t even appear at the top of of your Wordpress post or article. Sound like the issue?

Worry not. I might have the solution.

Constant Quality, Which is better, higher or lower? The quick answers (because that’s what you want right?):

  • Does going up or down improve quality on using "Constant Quality" on handbrake: Sliding the slider to the right and decreasing the number reduces compression and increase quality.
  • What is the best setting for high quality with "Constant Quality" on handbrake: There really isn’t any need to go with a number lower than 19 you will get larger file sizes but hardly notice the difference.
  • What is the best setting for a low file size with decent quality: 22 is your go-to number in "Constant Quality" if you want low file size by ok quality. Use 23 or even 24 if you really need a low file size, 21 if you are looking for the best mix of quality and low files size (i.e. low file size is important, but not your primary goal).
  • What setting in Handbrake will help me prepare the file for streaming on the internet? If you are going to stream on the internet, click the option Web Optimised. This will prepare your video so that that it downloads section after section in the right order and can start playing faster.

Handbrake is my go-to video squishing software. Get it free here.
