Today I had a bad day with a spyware because of my trust worthy anti-virus Kaspersky failed to do it's job.
Yesterday one of my friend borrowed my flash drive and returned to me this morning, knowing that there maybe nasty surprise waiting inside my pen drive i immediately scanned my pen drive with Kaspersky anti-virus and it came all clear in the scan.
So without thinking i right click on the pen drive icon and opened it.For a second i thought that i have done a mistake because it took some time(30 seconds) to open the pen drive & it opened in a separate window.But still i didn't got any idea about what is happening behind the screen.
When i open my Internet Explorer(IE) browser i found that my home page that i have set to yahoo in IE have been changed to a site call "www.cssa.co.nr" and IE window title "Chiku was here - email@example.com".
i immediately scanned my pen drive in my old machine which has free AVG virus guard and AVG immediately caught the culprit a file call "chiku2008.vbs" a VBScript virus.
So Kaspersky really shattered the trust that i have to it by letting a small VBScript virus to get though uncaught.
i removed all the registry values that starts with "Chiku" but still when ever i change the "Window Title" in windows registry it will not save the change.
And i found out that in my running processes there was this "wscript.exe" and when i kill that process and edit the registry value it solve my problem.
But when i google about it i found out that wscript.exe is a windows process that handle VB scripts and i found a software Noscript.exe from symantec.com to disable this process.
So after wasting hours i finally got through this shit and if i caught the person who develop this virus crap i surely going to kill him.
From now on i am not going to trust Kaspersky or the crap IE.

Probably in next few months Sri Lankan Cricket board will be putting a public advertisement for 'Vacancy For Batsman's' as the Sri Lankan team crashed landed in ICC T20 world cup 2009 in front of a inconsistent Pakistan team because of the failure of the Batsman's.
Specially Jehan Mubarak & Chamara Silva should be replaced because of their total failure in this tournament.They have been selected as full time batsman and haven't acted as batsman.
So Sri Lankan Cricket board should find some all rounders such as TM dilshan,Sanath Jayasooriya that can bat well rather than depending on full time batsman who fails to do their job.
I am really disappointed of Sri Lankan team in ICC T20 world cup 2009 finals.They should have done better than this.

Sri Lanka's once again display to the world that the Sri Lankan team is the best in the Twenty20 cricket by slicing through New Zealand at Trent Bridge and securing the spot in the semi-finals of the ICC World Twenty20 2009.
It is very amazing to watch Sri Lanka play although Sri Lankan master blaster Sanath Jayasuriya failed this match but TM Dilshan,kumar sangakkara & mahela jayawardena manage to get Sri Lanka a good 159 total.
New Zealand challenged the target of 159 briefly but Ajantha Mendis turned the game Sri Lanka's way by dismissing Ross Taylor and Scott Styris within a single over.
This is grate match exhibit the unity & team work of Sri Lankan team by everyone in the team contribute to the massive win of 48 runs against New Zealand.
I hope that Sri Lanka will be able to win ICC World Twenty20 2009 series.

Annesley Dias, a great comedian Sri Lanka have ever produced, passed away on June 12th. He was 81 years at his death. Annesley, a versatile comedian, not only made his audiences laugh, but also really happy.
He became popular as Hamu Mahaththaya in the Vinoda Samaya radio drama.
Later, he acted roles in several television programs.Anesley Dias engaged mostly in comic dramas with Berty Goonathilaka and Samuel Rodrigo, also with Mercy Edirisingha.
I have attached one of YouTube videos that i came across that was telecasted in early 90's. I really like those sinhala comedies of Anesley Dias, Berty Goonathilaka and Samuel Rodrigo triple when i was a child and still feel the feeling when i watched these old videos.
So it's very sad day for all the fans of this grate comedian....

I was helping one of my friends in installing his new machine with Windows XP when i really came across this scenario.
After i set the BIOS first boot devise as the CD ROM and trying to boot from the windows XP CD the screen shows that it has detected the CD and shows the message "Press any key to boot from CD" but when i press Enter or any other key it skip to the next boot device.
Finally i found out that although the keyboard works fine when you in BIOS screen but as soon the PC trying to boot from the CD the keyboard get disable. This is really funny!! :P
So finally i tried out a PS/2 keyboard guessing that there may be issues with USB keyboards and my guess was right and it really booted from CD like a baby. :D
I don't know what was the reason for this unpredictable behavior. probably the motherboard issue(it's a Gigabyte motherboard) or else the keyboard(maybe because the keyboard is Panora brand made in China) or else it's probably a issue with USB keyboards it self.
I really don't know the actual answer but i will never going to recommend a USB keyboard to anyone in future!!

Microsoft have officially unveiled its new search engine "Bing" which is the replacement for the unpopular Live Search of Microsoft.
I tried this Bing search engine and seems to me that there is no special difference and to me it's like copying features from ask.com and Google search engines.
Probably it's too early to predict the future of this new Microsoft Bing search engine because it's just launched but i think to compete with Google, Microsoft people should do better than this.
In the future i hope that battle for search engines going to be a hot topic.
