JottiQ Brings File Queuing and Explorer Integration for Jotti’s Malware Scan

Jotti's malware scan is a free online service that enables you to scan suspicious files with several anti-virus programs. At the time of this writing, every uploaded file to Jotti is scanned by 19 different anti-virus scanners including Kaspersky, Avast, AntiVir, AVG, Nod32, BitDefender, Panda, F-Secure and more.

Jotti is a wonderful service but like most online malware scanners, it’s a rather pain in the neck to use. For one, it does not support batch upload nor queuing of multiple files ahead of time; so you have to upload and scan them a single file at a time. If that’s not difficult enough, the file uploading process takes place inside your browser - being an online scanner - and not through Windows explorer, and thus lack drag and drop support and other convenient features of explorer.


JottiQ is a tool that makes Jotti's malware scan more convenient to use. Using JottiQ you can drag files from Windows explorer and drop it into the program’s window. If you don’t like drag-and-drop, you can integrate JottiQ with explorer and submit files for scanning directly from the context menu.


Files added are queued up for submission and then uploaded up to three files at a time for simultaneous scanning. This greatly improves file uploading and scan times. JottiQ also uses Jotti's internal cache to speed up scans by avoiding the uploading of files that have already been scanned in the past. Again, this is something you can’t do when accessing Jotti using your browser.

Results of the scan are displayed within the program itself.

Furthermore, JottiQ has the ability to submit all running processes to Jotti’s malware scanner with the click of a single button. This enables you to examine the legitimacy of all running programs, known and unknown, using Jotti’s multiple-engine virus scanners. Unfortunately, the 20 MB file upload limit that Jotti imposes on us destroys what could have been a very handy feature.

Jotti is still a great service, and JottiQ makes it even better.

Download JottiQ (requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4 and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package)

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
