MyStartSearch.com

Don’t you get bored when a computer infection comes back again and again with the same set of tools of trade? I mean, there’s nothing new or significant about MyStartSearch, and yet a lot of users have to suffer this browser hijacker on their computers.

Even so, there is nothing to be afraid of because MyStartSearch.com is not some extra malicious infection. It’s good to be on the cautious side, but you know, if you panic, you’re pretty much done for it.

Over many years I’ve learned that it is possible to just write stepping over yourself and following basic writing rules. Granted, I’ve always thought that Creative Writing as a course in college is nonsense (unless, of course, you’re a gifted person, but you don’t know how to put all your ideas in a coherent manner yet), but for one thing, basic rules and canons, especially those of the Academic Writing, can give you the much-needed push forward when you are stuck. To be perfectly honest, I have hated Academic Writing all my adult life, but I can’t ignore its advantages. And when the going gets tough, the tough get going, right?
