This month’s topic is somewhat morbid. It talks about death and how to handle the technology side of things. While I was thinking about it, it reminded me of a piece of advice that was given to me by an estate attorney while I was working on his computer. He said (paraphrasing) “When choosing a...

I had some family over for a dual birthday for me and my son a few weeks ago. The next day one of the guests at the party was not feeling well. The guest was vaccinated but their work required them to get tested for Covid-19. It came back positive. This of course was a source of great concern for me...

As I write this it is on the heals of Gov. Scott's announcement that the Covid-19 state of emergency is ending. According to my understanding of the science, herd immunity occurs at 70%. We are at nearly 80% vaccinated. I for one will be glad to see things return to normal, but I know there are...

Sorry the newsletter is late. As many of you know I was in Tucson, AZ last week. Don't worry I was vaccinated before I left so there is no need for me to quarentine. It is amazing how different the climate is there. For our entire trip it was in the 90s and Sunny. We came in late on Saturday night....

I think you all are very smart. It is just that you have skills in areas other than computers. Its a wonderful...

Happy new year to all of you! Let’s hope 2021 is a little nicer to us than 2020 was.  Over the last couple of weeks I have really taken in the beauty of the snow. Perhaps its how it hangs on the branches. The white in stark contrast to the greenish brown of the trees. Perhaps it is how the sun re...

Ok, I admit it I have not been particularly good at keeping my newsletter monthly. There are a variety of reasons for this. Part of it has been time management but also there really hasn’t been that much going on in technology worth writing about. I have also been taking a good hard look at the wa...

It seems to me there is a lot of talk about masks these days. According to studies done by a variety of organizations face coverings have been shown to reduce the spread of Covid-19. This has caused many states to issue a mask mandate requiring everyone to wear a mask in public places. The proble...

Ahhhh! The Holiday season. It is certainly one of my favorite times of the year. There is a spirit about it that speaks of Joy and Happiness unlike any other.

Windows 10 is out and has been out for about a month now. Although I don't recommend you upgrade those who did have been relatively ok. There have been some computer with display issues but other than that it seems to work ok. If you do plan to upgrade please give us a call first. There are still a lot of programs out there that aren't compatible with Windows 10

If any of you have been watching the news lately you have probably heard that on April 8th, 2014 support for Windows XP will end. What does this mean for you? Well read on and find out.

The Life Cycle of a Product – As with many other things you buy in the store the manufacturer will only provide parts for so long. Try and get a part for a 30 year old Washing machine or a 20 year old Television you will probably find the task difficult if not impossible.
The same is true for software manufacturers. Windows XP was released in 2002 it has been around for 12 years! A lot has changed in computers since then. There are things computers can do now that Windows XP can’t take advantage of because when the program came out the technology didn’t exist. Because of this it becomes increasingly more difficult to keep the operating system stable and functioning. At some point it becomes impractical to do it.

What will Happen to Windows XP after April 8th, 2014? – Don’t worry it is not like you will turn on your computer on April 9th to find a blue screen saying “Your copy of Windows XP has expired” however Microsoft will no longer be releasing patches and updates. This means as the days, weeks and months wear on it will get easier and easier for your XP computer to catch viruses and malware. And it becomes harder and harder to remove.

What can I do about it? – If you do not need to use the internet you can continue to use your Windows XP computer without too much worry just disconnect your network cable or remove your wireless adapter and make sure you don’t connect anything other than your keyboard, mouse and printer to your computer. And never use any CD’s that are homemade unless you created them. If you still need the internet the easiest thing to do would be to upgrade your operating system to Windows 7 or 8 but if your computer is older than 7 years it would be best if you just replace your computer. Computers can be purchased at the local ‘Big Box’ stores for as little as $300. Windows 8 Home edition can be purchased for as little as $120. Windows 7 can also be purchased but can be difficult to find and is typically more expensive than Windows 8.

I have Windows Vista, 7 is this something that I have to worry about? – At this point no. Windows Vista will be supported until April 11th, 2017 and Windows 7 until January 14th, 2020.

Happy Friday everybody I thought I would share with you a tip. If you are a Gmail user you probably already know that when you reply to an email it quotes the entire text. If you don't want to send the entire text all you need to do is highlight the text you do want to quote and when you hit reply that is all that will be included.

More than 6 million LinkedIn passwords likely stolen

If you have an account with linked in you might want to consider changing you password. When determining a new password remember the following guidelines.

Your password should contain no less than 7 characters. The more the better.

Your password should contain at least one uppercase letter, one lower case letter, one number and one symbol ([email protected]#$%)

Your password should not be something that is common knowledge about you. e.g. Your child's first name, your date of birth etc.

LinkedIn passwords were likely hacked, in what will probably serve as a big wake-up call for the social network to upgrade its security.

DNS Changer Check-Up - Clean

Some of you may have heard recently in the news about the DNS Changer Virus. You might be wondering "Am I infected?", "How do I clean it off if I am infected?" Hopefully this article will help answer some of those questions.

DNS stands for Domain Name Service it serves as a phone book for the internet. This virus replaces that entry with their own phone book so when your computer goes to a website it goes to the wrong place. In addition the program disables your virus protection so it can not be detected. The FBI busted this hacker ring late last year but many computers may still be infected. In fact it is estimated that over a half-million computers are still infected and their users don't even know it.

The problem is the FBI set up legitimate servers to replace the rogue ones. This is costing the tax payers over $10,000/month and is slated to be shut down in July. If you are infected with this virus you will not be able to access the internet.

You can find out if you are an infected computer by visiting the DNS Changer Check-Up website listed below. If you are not infected no worries you need not do anything more. If you are infected that infection will need to be cleaned off.

Your first action if you are infected should be to make sure your Anti-virus software is updated and running properly then run a full system scan. Since this program also disables virus scanners I strongly recommend that you run an additional scan with an Anti-malware scanner. There are many out there though I personally recommend Malware Bytes Anti-malware which can be downloaded from malwarebytes.org.
