Computer Repair in Hickory

Friday, July 1st, 2011

I like to work on computers in Hickory, NC. As a member of the Hickory Chamber of Commerce, it is rewarding to meet new people and businesses, network with them and offer my assistance when needed.

On a recent trip to repair a computer in Hickory, I saw the largest copperhead snake ever. The snake had been hit by a car and was dead, but was intimidating none the less. I stopped and took a picture with my camera phone to show my friends, even though dead, I dare not get too close.

Snakes scare me, but viruses in computers do not. Even though a computer virus is as deadly to your computer as a poisonous snake is to us, somehow the snake is much more menacing.

Call me to fix your computer, but don’t expect me to mess with any snakes along the way.

This week, mobile security provider Lookout is warning Android users of a new twist on malware (one of the key mobile security risks I covered last week).

There’s a malicious app called GGTracker, which tricks you into installing it by leading you to a fake version of Google’s Android Market.

As my daughter graduated from college with her degree in teaching, it brought back memories of my college days. Although it was some time ago, I still remember learning how to repair computers and build networks.education

Most of the education I learned is out of date, b/c technology moves at light speed, but it conditioned me to always learn more and understand that my chosen profession requires non-stop education. I find it exciting and challenging to address and overcome new issues.
