Productivity for Your Tablet

The computer is still the “king of the castle” when it comes to productivity, but more and more people are turning to mobile devices out of necessity or just because it’s more convenient than pulling out the laptop. Some of our clients regularly depend on their tablets to get work done and so have asked us for application recommendations. We thought we’d pass that information on to you!

Summer Laptop Sale
With two weeks left on the optional free Windows 10 upgrade and school starting back up in six weeks, we’re having a deep discount sale starting today on our stock of new laptops. If you’re looking to get a deal and upgrade to Windows 10 before the free upgrade ends, check to see what stock is still available. If you’re still not a fan of Windows 10 (or Windows 8), we do still have some new systems that have been factory downgraded to Windows 7 Pro.

Summer Hours
Due to decreasing use of our Saturday hours, starting July 23rd we will be switching to an appointment-only pickup window for people unable to make it in on Fridays during the summer. If you need to pick up on Saturday, give us a call to schedule the appointment ahead of time. We’re hoping to minimize any inconvenience this may cause to the people who come visit us normally on the weekends, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve the process and enjoy a little more of the sunshine each weekend.

We promise to never SPAM your inbox, and we will strive to make sure each issue has information that is useful and interesting to you!

Vishing – “Hi, Your Computer is Infected.”

The Setup

Scenario 1: You’re on your computer, casually surfing the web. A website here, a photo site there, maybe playing some music. Suddenly, the screen goes weird and then there’s a big error message claiming your computer has been infected! What do you do now? Then you notice that under the error message, there is the number for Microsoft! How convenient! A little too convenient actually.

What Not To Do…

Many people come to us confused about what they can do to avoid viruses and malware. Our first typical answer is protect your computer with a layered approach. A leading antivirus program (like BitDefender) AND the leading anti-malware package (Malwarebytes). The combination of the two differing approaches to pro-active protection should protect you from most “attacks”. But that’s only part of the solution (and the easiest part). The rest of the story depends on you.
