How to fix system scan error on Windows 8?

How to fix system scan error on Windows 8?


Open a command prompt with admin rights and run this DISM command to detect and repair corrupted files on the HDD:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

This is the advanced version of sfc /scannow. Windows now downlaods the corrupted files from the Internet instead of telling you that the files can't be repaired.

AOL hack causes zombie spam


AOL hack causes zombie spam

 

 


"NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Whether or not you use AOL, a recently exposed mass hack of the company's network promises trouble for everybody.
AOL users: Hackers stole "a significant number" of email addresses, passwords, contact lists, postal addresses and answers to security questions, the company said in a blog post Monday. Anyone of the company's 120 million account holders might be affected. Judging by AOL's description of the incident, that total number could well be in the tens of millions. But AOL isn't giving any details about the incident for now.
Non-AOL users: Watch out for spam that looks like it came from you or your friends' AOL accounts."

What is a Hashtag? And What Do You Do With Hashtags?

 What is a Hashtag? And What Do You Do With Hashtags?

  


What is a Hashtag?

A hashtag is a label for content. It helps others who are interested in a certain topic, quickly find content on that same topic.
A hashtag looks something like this:  #MarathonBombings or #SmallBizQuote.
Hashtags are used mostly on social media sites.  They rocketed to fame on Twitter.  But now you can use hashtags on other social platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+.
Anyone sharing content on a relevant topic can add the hashtag label to their message.  Others searching for that topic, can search for that label to find other messages on that same social media platform.
