To help customers who are experiencing difficulties restarting their systems after installation of security update KB2823324, Microsoft is making available a bootable media ISO image through the Microsoft Download Center (DLC). Lots of users who installed this update and restarted their computer system, couldn’t boot again in Windows. Also if the user was using Kaspersky antivirus in Windows 7, it stopped functioning with the error message “Your license is not valid”. Users started receiving random error messages at startup such as:
- The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.
- The Session Manager Initialization system process terminated unexpectedly. The system has shutdown.
- Windows failed to start. A Recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
- The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

The Internet is a surveillance state. Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, and whether we like it or not, we’re being tracked all the time. Google tracks us, both on its pages and on other pages it has access to. Facebook does the same; it even tracks non-Facebook users. Apple tracks us on our iPhones and iPads. One reporter used a tool called Collusion to track who was tracking him; 105 companies tracked his Internet use during one 36-hour period…………….

Traditionally, were you to ask somebody what “the best job in the world” is, you might expect to hear ‘astronaut’, ‘movie star’ or ‘bed tester’ thrown back at you. But for 34-year-old Englishman Ben Southall — and 35,000 other hopefuls — it was the six-month gig being offered by Tourism Queensland to be the caretaker of an Australian tropical island. And for the not exactly demanding 12 hours he’s expected to work each month in Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef (key duties: snorkelling, feeding fish, blogging), he’ll be put up in a three-bedroom oceanfront villa (with swimming pool just in case he tires of the sea) and be paid the princely sum of $110,000……………….

One thing’s for sure though, you can bet your bottom dollar that Microsoft is definitely working on a next generation of their desktop operating system, but what they have decided to call it, and when will it roll out to the masses, remain to be seen. It would be a waste of time, too, to speculate on such details.
Win8China, a site that has provided a bunch of Windows leaks in the past which were hits (as well as misses), claimed that the software giant is working on Windows 9 for a tentative November 2014 product launch, and it would be as early as next January where we will be able to check out a beta. This, however, does jive with whispers on the street that Windows would get a yearly operating system update, and Windows Blue being touted to be a Windows 8 update later this year, so what’s stopping Windows 9 from a November 2014 release? All in all, we will be on our toes to make sure that when Windows 9 arrives, we will report it”.

Forget your problems
Lay it down, they start up
The innocence of what you are is what I want
