movie maker in Windows 8

Today, we are going to download Windows Movie Maker for Microsoft  Windows 8.1

The program is  free, allows you the ability to edit, add music, add credits, use different types of transitions and effects.    I have used this program  in the past, to make a slide show of my dad, and then was able to add music to make it more personal. It was pretty cool. So lets get started. After discovering that Movie Maker was not on Windows 8, I went over to Microsoft.com

I have provided a link below:

Once you have started the  download of  Microsoft Essentials 2012, a window pane will open up giving you option to install   Microsoft Skydive, Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, Mail, Writer, and Outlook Connector Pack.

I decided I didn’t need all of these  so I just chose Photo Gallery, Movie Maker and Writer. After clicking on your choices, you may be asked to install Net Framework 3.5 to install Windows Essentials.  this only takes a few minutes.

After Windows Essentials is loaded click close. go to the Start Menu in Windows>  search bar,> type Movie Maker, when it appears Right-click on Movie maker pinning it to start and then to the Task bar, this will make it easier to gain access  . Click on Agreement and you know have Windows Movie Maker.

After you open the program, you will need to click on add Videos and  Photo’s, the next step select a ” Title” then select an effect for your title,  click Home, click on caption, after choosing Caption, you can choose Auto movie theme, click on Home, and choose credits to give it the final touch. It appears unlimited on what you can do with Movie Maker

May the fun begin.

Remember Put God First in everything you do.

Check the Battery

So, today lets talk about, how crazy things can get. Last week, I needed to print out something, tried to print on Windows 8, but for whatever reason, the printer was not compatible, so, I grabbed my laptop with Windows 7, and connected it, without the cord, so, threw in the battery. Tried to connect the printer but, for whatever reason, it failed to install even with the disk that came with the printer. so, went to the internet, or say tried. I believe I prayed to get the printer to work.

When I returned the next day, tried to get on the internet, couldn’t get on the internet and now the graphics had switched to classic, which is something I never use. I couldn’t figure this out. figured my computer was on its last leg, already the CD-rom was not working, now, there was no internet and somebody must have been  inside the computer, at least that was my thought.We can think of all sorts of things when the computer is not working properly.

Maybe, the Wireless connector was also going out. I decided to restart the computer. There on the screen appeared that the battery had an issue and needed replacing, I removed the battery and guess what everything worked, printer, internet and Windows 7 was back to its normal graphics. My point is this if you are having issues with your laptop, first remove the battery and see if that fixes your problem.

Facebook messenger is it the real deal

Facebook is a social network application, that we use on our computers, smart phones and other devices to keep in touch. We can  post photo’s, check to see how our friends are doing and even play games, such as Farmsville2. There is a lot to do with Facebook. It keeps us in the loop with our families and friends.

Today, we start by looking at  Facebook messenger. The one we will be looking at is at http://www.facebookmessenger.biz

Whenever you download a program, make sure to use a limited account.

Below is a link on why choosing a limited or Administrator account is best

Sometimes, we are searching the web and we see something like Facebook Messenger and we don’t notice that it is not from Facebook, then the computer starts acting wacky and we can’t seem to figure out why. If you move your mouse across the screen, and it doesn’t actually stay in one place moves a little chances are you probably have Malware or a Virus.

  Malware Bytes is one of the programs that I use. This program is quite enough for getting rid of malware.   After downloading be sure that you click on the update tab. The link below will help on how to best run the program.

click on the link below to download  Malware Bytes :

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html 

When you get to the website at http://www.FacebookMessenger.biz , at the bottom is a disclaimer that this site is not endorsed, operated or endorsed by Facebook Once downloaded, there are several things that come up, if you use the custom install you can get rid of most of these pesky issues by clicking decline, However, Malware Bytes will still find about 6-8 malware infections,

Upon testing the application, if you just install without using the custom installation, you are going to have around 542 Malware infections  on your computer.

Should you accidentally download this program, make sure to download Spybot: Search and Destroy, along with ZoneAlarm firewall. As of this writing   however ZoneAlarm does work on Windows 8, just not the upgrade to 8.1

below is a link for Spybot: Search and Destroy

ZoneAlarm Firewall and Anti-virus.

http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en-us/zonealarm-free-antivirus-firewall.htm

To prevent Facebook Messenger from loading after you download the Zonealarm free firewall, Click on the firewall, this will take to Application Control, find Facebook Messenger, left click, you will have options, click Kill, a warning will pop-up, click OK, and do this for each Facebook entry, you also want to remove the program by going to Programs and Features, find Facebook Messenger and click Uninstall.

Which brings us to the conclusion that  downloading Messenger from the official Facebook Website is the only safe place.

Be Safe and God Bless
