‘iPhone SE 2’ said to Launch in May or June with Wireless Charging

Apple’s iPhone SE 2 will support wireless charging, and will be released in the summer of 2018. Luke Lin, an analyst from Digitimes Research in Taiwan said about Apple’s latest action.

In addition, MacRumors has also quoted that “Apple is reportedly working on a new entry-level smartphone model similar to the iPhone SE that will support wireless charging and be released in time for summer 2018.” Luke Lin, who believes that Apple’s iPhone SE successor will have a glass back similar to the iPhone 8 series and iPhone X, but will lack the 3D sensing capabilities of the latter model.

‘iPhone SE 2’ said to Launch in May or June

This is what he said about ‘iPhone SE:

For the entry-level sector, Apple is preparing a new inexpensive smartphone similar to the iPhone SE for 2018, featuring the wireless charging functionality, but not 3D sensing. The smartphone will begin mass production in the second quarter with the official launch in May or June, Lin noted.

But what he saying did not mention the size of the new entry-level model, the details are the same with four-inch Phone SE 2 in previous rumors, despite earlier speculation that the device will be released in the first quarter of 2018, not in the second quarter.

Is all from August last year that the rumors flied about a the specifications of Apple’s next small form factor smartphone, when Indian tech website Tekz24 claimed Apple’s next iPhone SE model would have an A10 Fusion chip, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB and 128GB storage capacities, and a slightly larger 1,700 mAh battery.

In November, China’s Economic Daily News claimed Apple’s second-generation iPhone SE was set for the first half of 2018 and would be assembled by Wistron at its factory in Bengaluru, India, where some assembly of the current iPhone SE occurs. Taiwanese market research firm TrendForce also recently predicted that Apple is planning to launch a second-generation iPhone SE in 2018 to target the mid-range smartphone market.

What to Do when Windows Uninstaller and unin000.ex won’t be able to Uninstall MyWinLocker?

It’s such an annoying and embarrassing thing when failed to uninstall MyWinLocker by Windows Uninstaller and build-in unin000.ex application, by the way, how should you do to remove MyWinLocker successfully when these two most common manual method won’t do anything for the removal?

uninstall Mywinlocker

Can Windows uninstaller help?

Vernod met this problem in the past and asked for help in forum.

“I recently purchased an Acer laptop which had some application called MyWinLocker by EgisTec.

When launching the program and on startup, I get the following error:

  • The application has failed to start because sysenv.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem

When I try to reinstall from the acer restore program,

  • it says an updated version is already installed and therefore nothing can be done.

When I try to uninstall application, I click on change, and then it says:

  • Some files that need to be updated are currently in use:
  • EgisUpdate Release Application
  • The option is then to automatically close and attempt to restart applications

When I click next, I get error 1722 says there is an error with this windows installer package.”

Most Common Problems Happen during…

This is often happening during the MyWinLocker removal by using Windows Programs and Features:

  • You need to update the software;
  • The removal refused by system with unknown reason;s
  • Software required reinstalled before removal;
  • The Control Panel cannot remove the software;

Let’s look at the other case that Windows uninstaller can’t remove MyWinlocker by Libra:

“I attempted to uninstall MyWinlocker two weeks ago and I just discovered it’s still there. An install wizard appears and I am not given the choice to uninstall, only install. It says to check what you want to install and uncheck what you do not want installed…so I didn’t check anything. At that time I did get a notice that it may not have uninstalled correctly and was clueless about this.”

uninstall MyWinLocker

Can build-in uninstaller help?

It is such upset and confusing for people right? Do you think this is an end when failed to uninstall MyWinLocker from a Windows PC? Let’s check another case for MyWinLocker build-in uninstaller:

Usually, an installed software in Windows might have a unin000.ex or unin.dat file stored in hard drive. Find and open the installed location of a program in Windows in PC, you’ll find its default uninstaller. However, in some case, it may be disappointing that there is no unin000.ex or unin.dat file at all. So the build-in uninstaller in this part won’t help you, either.


Can Automated Software help?

The question is what to do at the end to uninstall MyWinLocker when Windows uninstaller and build-in uninstaller won’t help anymore? Can an automated tool help remove MyWinLocker from computer? Let’s try.

1. Download & install Bloatware Uninstaller on computer

AMD’s Ryzen Desktop APUs will be coming on February 12 from $99

Just ahead of CES 2018 pre-show, AMD has announced a lot of new products will be coming in this year, including Ryzen Desktop APUs and Ryzen Mobile APUs. Now, with the closer and closer to coming time of release, we can also see the full massage of AMD desktop version for Ryzen APU.

AMD's Ryzen Desktop APUs will be coming on February 12 from $99

The detailed information of these two Ryzen

First of all, let’s take look on what configurations of these Ryzen might have after releasing.

Also known as the Ryzen 2000G series APUs, these processors offer the power of AMD Zen CPU and Radeon Vega GPU in one single package. For starters, AMD will be releasing two different models, as listed below:

Ryzen 5 2400G: 3.6GHz Base / 3.9GHz Max Boost / 4 Cores / 8 Threads / 11 Computational Units for Graphics

Ryzen 3 2200G: 3.5GHz Base / 3.7GHz Max Boost / 4 Cores / 4 Threads / 8 Computational Units for Graphics

This is, the Ryzen 3 2200G offers four CPU cores and four threads clocked at 3.5 GHz plus an 8 compute unit Vega GPU.


As for the price, these two APUs are pretty crazy in what they offer at a low price point. The Ryzen 3 2200G is from $99 dollars, while Ryzen 5 2400G is $169 dollars.

The Ryzen 5 2400G, for example, has a four core, eight thread CPU clocked at 3.6 GHz with a boost up to 3.9 GHz. It also packs a Vega GPU with 11 compute units, or 704 shader cores, with a base clock of 1240 MHz. You get all of this for just $169, which is only $5 more than the Ryzen 5 1400, yet you get higher CPU clocks out of the box and decent integrated graphics.

These two APUs will be available on February 12, 2018, please pay attention to the official website if you’d like to purchase one.

Trump Signs Ban on Kaspersky Lab Software

Trump Signs Ban on Kaspersky Lab Software

American president Donald Trump on Tuesday signed the bill into law to ban the use of Kaspersky Lab software within the U.S. Government, which puts an end to the months-long attempt to purge the Moscow-based antivirus firm from federal agencies.

“The case against Kaspersky is well-documented and deeply concerning. This law is long overdue,” said Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who led calls in Congress to scrub the software from government computers. She added that the Russian company’s software represented a “grave risk” to U.S. national security.

The directive appears in Section 1634 of the 2018 NDAA, and it reads as follows:

“No department, agency, organization, or other element of the Federal Government may use, whether directly or through work with or on behalf of another department, agency, organization, or element of the Federal Government, any hardware, software, or services developed or provided, in whole or in part, by—
(1) Kaspersky Lab (or any successor entity);
(2) any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Kaspersky Lab; or
(3) any entity of which Kaspersky Lab has majority ownership.”

In September the Trump administration issued a directive requiring both military and civilian agencies to remove Kaspersky Lab software within 90 days.

Kaspersky Lab has repeatedly denied that it has ties to any government and said it would not help a government with cyber espionage. In an attempt to address American government suspicions, the company declared in October that it was willing to submit the source code of its software and future update for inspection by independent parties. This proposal was not accepted however, and last week Kaspersky Lab announced that it would close its its Washington, D.C. offices.

As a response to this ban, Kaspersky Lab said in a statement on Tuesday that it continued to have “serious concerns” about the law “due to its geographic-specific approach to cybersecurity”. It added that the company was assessing its options and would continue to “protect its customers from cyber threats (while) collaborating globally with the IT security community to fight cybercrime”.

The code execution hole was submitted to the company on July 2016 but Microsoft patched it on January 2017. Considering the potential risk, you are suggested to update the software to the latest version.
