The kid’s are begging you to get on your computer, but you are super busy. You say OK, even though you can not sit there the whole time monitoring everything that is going on…..you really have to get dinner made. Little Sally really want’s to download the super cool Sponge Bob desktop wallpaper and your not there to ask…..so….she clicks download.
You are working at your computer and have been working for hours just trying to get done. You suddenly can not sit there any longer….you have got to pee, so you run to the bathroom. You’ll be quick…it will be ok. The kid’s are napping right? Wrong, just when you leave the room your sweet little toddler see’s his chance. The computer…unattended, Mommy is out of site…..
You come back to the room just as it happens…the download has already begun! You frantically try to cancel, but it’s no use….it won’t stop!
What happens next could be left in the hands of luck, maybe it was a safe file…maybe it wasn’t. Or, you could just relax because you know you have a BufferZone!
Imagine a safe little bubble in your computer, someplace where everything downloaded resided until you knew it was a safe file. Well, that is exactly what the BufferZone is. It is a safe place for those files to be contained where they can not access your computer files! They can’t hurt you there. Your safe! Relax mama!
The following is taken from the BufferZone website:
Because BufferZone Pro separates files and applications, Trojan horses containing key loggers and other malicious code are not able to access sensitive areas of your PC (such as your “My Documents” and similar folders) to try and steal your passwords or violate your privacy.
You can safely download, share, import, or run any file or program from any source while remaining confident that they can never harm your actual PC.
How rad is that? I was able to try out this software myself and I was quite impressed. I do a lot of downloading so it took a bit of getting used to, but after a day of use I had it. I just had to remember the files were in pergatory! After I got the hang of that idea it was easy peasy!
So guess what happens now? I get to give away this software to one lucky family!
I’m telling you, if you have children using the computer this is an amazing thing to have on your computer! Shoot, not even just kids…just a not so technical spouse or family member and this will make you feel much safer!
