Avast's driver updater is tied to a PUP known as Slimware. I detected it on my system with HerdProtect(scanner with 68 engines) and went to investivate and found that others had came across this as well. Here is an analysis of Avast driver updater.
Please note that this is not a dangerous malware. PUPs are mostly harmless.
Video's currently uploading. If you don't see a video in the next hour so, the video failed to upload. That would be alright if I hadn't already tried to upload several times before. But I'll just have to see, maybe it was something on my end.
There was also a Pentium 1 system I found first, but when I tested it out - I heard a "pop!" and then it started smoking a bit. I already have a Pentium 1 system, but it would have been cool if I had another one. Hopefully this should work great with Windows Terminal Server!
Just wanted to test Blog posts for the first time EPIC
Now that we've moved into a new era where Vlare will hopefully prosper as YouTube somehow manages to continue sinking lower, I'd like to mention a few creators who have made (and/or will make) some really cool retro tech-related videos you can expect to see on Vlare.
TheOneGoofAli: A friend of mine who's already done some very cool things with Windows NT 4.0 Server in a series called "Windows NT Shenanigans". He's getting a new capture card soon, so you'll get to see crystal clear recordings of whatever he plans to do next on real hardware!
Blue Horizon: While this person hasn't made any tech videos yet, he has done A LOT behind the scenes to document many prerelease builds of Windows. His most recent review project happens to cover Memphis (the Windows 98 beta), and had it not been for his discovery of gradient title bars in build 1387, Windows 95D would've never been made. He plans to make a video of the Dell Dimension XPS D300 I'm sending to him later this month, and I plan to bring his documentation efforts along with my own to a much more publicly accessible outlet; a Vlare subchannel, so to speak.
3Dfx_Aslinger: Currently, this channel is only a visitor because Vlare REALLY needs to implement 60fps video support soon, but he has a bountiful of videos on YouTube displaying a wide range of 3dfx Voodoo accelerators in action on old hardware, including the mythical Voodoo5 6000. For the 3dfx enthusiast, this is the channel to go to, and I really look forward to seeing more 3dfx videos on Vlare.
Tonko301: Posts a variety of videos, including recordings of old computers. He has a large hoarding of old hardware like I do, and makes old-style VHS tapes here and there using real VCRs, including one that dates back to the late 70's. Some of the ways he creates organic VHS grain and distortion are insanely creative; his most recent one made use of a freezer to gradually drown the entire video output!
ktg5: Recently, this guy started his own spinoff of the Hardcore Windows videos I've made over the years, covering the often overlooked Windows NT Terminal Server Edition. It's not "a complete copy" of my series as he says it is; for one, it has actual voice commentary as opposed to annotations which I used to provide silent commentary. Running TSE on a newer system certainly is an intriguing adventure, and I'd like to see where it goes next.
The technology community on Vlare is still very small, so keep bringing everyone you can over here to help this site grow with a more balanced variety of content. I'm hoping Vlare will become the place to go for people who struggle to find good tech videos or get their own out there.
As for me, I'm still waiting around for that 60fps support as always, and renewed my premium subscription last month in the hopes of expediting it. Once it becomes available, I plan to gradually reupload the rest of the videos from my YouTube channel over here, and already have a new idea for an ambitious project that makes use of 37 different hardware configurations. I don't know when that will be finished, but you'll see what it's about as soon as it's released - mind you, on Vlare FIRST!
Also, Vlare staff: please allow more email domains for those who are diametrically opposed to Google and other large tech companies.
Hey! I was on YouTube but have decided to move to here due to the stuff going on with COPPA and the FTC and because a nice change was needed. YouTube was a nightmare to navigate, and for someone who wanted to upload quick videos to entertain passers bys, didn't do it for me. So here I am now!
The kind of content you can expect in the coming week is a playthrough of Sonic 1 both on Mega Drive/Genesis and GameGear. After that, I plan to move a lot of my speedpaint videos on YouTube to here; even the early stuff.
And after that, then I can get a schedule going. Actually spruce up my platform here and tidy up the interface of my channel. I'll also get started on a Sonic 2 for GameGear playthrough with added commentary. Finally, I may get started on sharing various opinion pieces about the Sonic fandom's shows and characters.
I hope you look forward to it!
So yesterday was my last day of class, and I have a month and a half break until my spring semester starts up. I'm looking forward to having more time for making videos. My videos, however, may not be consistent in the next few weeks. I've got a lot of traveling planned. I'm going to try to film while I am on the road. I'm still going to be active posting blogs and on my channel page though. If you're interested in following me through my travels I will be posting on my social media, primarily Twitter and Instagram. Happy holidays everyone!
I know you're probably going to tell me that I'm lying to you. But, I promise you that I'm not lying.
At the very least, please, hear me out. All I was doing was livestreaming a gameplay on YouTube, minding my own business.
Some point, during the livestream, I hear mysterious voices directly coming from my laptop. I couldn't make out all of it.
The most I could make out was a sentence, saying: "Lets just do what he says." Later on, after the livestream, I heard a voice say an unknown word, but after the mysterious first word, I heard the word: "everyone."
I recently looked up what I SHOULD do if I hear voices coming from my laptop. The top possibilities were that I need to get some help because I'm losing it and that it could just be a virus.
As far as I know, I haven't gone that insane yet and even if I did, someone would've spoke up about it. Meaning, it'd be a virus on my laptop.
I scanned for threats and viruses on my laptop, but turned up empty-handed. Since that's happened, I don't know if it's my laptop or myself.
If there is a virus on my laptop, it must be good at hiding within my laptop's systems to the point where it can't be found at all and if it was me, I would've gotten help sooner.
I don't know which possibility it is because of the results that turned up on my end.
Bem o canal só vai começar em 2020
