How to Remove Ghost Antivirus – Ghost Antivirus Removal Guide

Ghost Antivirus is a new rogue anti-spyware program going around and like all other rogue anti-spyware programs its task is to infect your PC with misleading information delivered by Ghost Antivirus in order to make you purchase the full version of the illegitimate software. So if your wondering How To Remove Ghost Antivirus please continue reading The Ghost Antivirus Removal guide.

This program can easily gain access to your PC through backdoor Trojans which work as a gateway for these types of programs to be installed automatically. Once installed it will go on to display a number of fake pop messages and conduct phony system scans which show threats that are created by the program itself. All this is done to make the user believe they need to purchase the full version of the software to remove the found threats.

Now there is manual removal method which ill demonstrate below, but I must advise it may be ineffective as the program has the ability to reinstall itself once the PC is simply rebooted.

Timing Is Everything – How to Put Together The Perfect Guided Meditation

I once took a very expensive week-long retreat program designed to help participants deal with “mother and father issues.” The program was helpful, and it included a series of guided meditations to help get us in touch with higher guidance. But the way the facilitator read the meditation scripts (they were all written down and had to be followed by the staff exactly) drove me crazy.

The instructions came one after another, without any pauses, as if we could listen and follow the directions at the same time we heard them. I’m sorry, but my mind doesn’t quite work that way. If you ask me to envision my dad and then see us engaged in an activity, and then see us in another activity I’m going to say “Hey… I’m still envisioning my Dad. Slow down!” So, I gave the facilitator some feedback: Leave spaces. (I hope he heard me — I haven’t been back since.)

You’ve got to leave spaces in a guided meditation or guided imagery program, especially when it’s a recording or it’s for a group, and you can’t monitor every listener. How much space? It’s going to be different for everyone, every time they do the program, so there’s no one answer. The best you can do is pick a reasonable amount of time, say 20 seconds to a minute depending upon the instructions, and then be consistent. In other words, if your directions include a series of things for the listener to imagine, allow the same amount of time for each piece. That way the listener can learn what to expect, and establish a kind of rhythm. Consistency is comforting.

I also like to create spaces that build up to larger spaces. So, the first several tasks in a program may be 15 seconds each, then another set will be 30 seconds, and perhaps there will be one culminating piece at the end that lasts a minute or so. Provided the background music or sound is relaxing and absorbing, it will carry the listener through these pauses well, and hold everything together.

Aside from pauses, in general, talk slowly. The listener is hopefully going into a nice trance state early in the meditation, and as the creative side of the brain opens up, the intellect is slowed down. Talking slowly and softly keeps them in that nice calm pocket where they can gain the most from your meditation program.
