Summertime is vacation time! A few words of caution are in order before you head out to the ball park, national park, camping or just to the swimming pool: Anytime you connect to a wifi hot spot at the local library or coffee shop, restaurant, motel, etc,that doesn't require a password, your personal data is at risk. Remember: no password=no security! So if you check your bank balances or finances while connected, you are at great risk of having your logon and personal info stolen! This is something you need to be aware of. Again: no password=no security!! Now that you know-have a great vacation! ... See MoreSee Less

Oh boy!! In the last 3 months I have had several companies and home computers become infected with ransomware or encryption malware. If you see a screen similar to this, it is already too late! Some ransomware can be removed and the system recovered but some absolutely can not.
Can't stress enough: Backup! Backup! Backup! before you have problems, because with encryption ransomware your files are most likely lost. Call us if you do not know how to do a backup or if your computer has not been checked for adequate security in awhile. This is one time when the old marketing jingle rings quite true: Hurry today-don't delay!!

Holiday season's rushing at us so a couple of thoughts before you go buy a new Christmas computer: Don't be misled thinking that Windows is the only way to use a computer! Linux comes free and in many flavors such as Ubuntu or Linux Mint, and can be installed right alongside or replace Windows on your computer. If like most people, your computer use consists of email & Internet surfing, then Linux is for you! If you can use Windows, you can navigate Linux. And, there's a free MS Office equivalent for document projects. One of the big advantages to using Linux is that your chances of getting a virus are really close to none!! Contact us for more info and find out how easy it is to give it a test run. ... See MoreSee Less
