Virus Protection

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I read on Facebook that a new virus is being spread by a video link claiming to be a YouTube video of the Osama killing. I can’t claim it to be fact or fiction and will not click on it to find out, but will air on the side of precaution and leave it alone.


Viruses are a part of our computing life now and we all should use good judgement while on the Internet. My rule of thumb is that if it looks suspecious or too good to be true, stay away. The best practice is to buy good anti-virus software and update it regularly.

As we build better virus protection, the hackers are building better viruses. So, your virus protection (regardless of the brand or manufacturer) is only as good as it’s last update. In other words, the new anti-virus you just installed is out of date and needs to be updated to the latest version.

Computer Repair Hickory & the Summer Heat

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

What does Computer Repair for Hickory and the Summer Heat Wave have in common you ask??? Quite a lot actually, the Hickory area has been a good city for me and my business, so as I work with local businesses and the Chamber of Commerce, I felt compelled to offer some summer heat advise to my friends. The message is Be Prepared.

Here Ya’ Go: 

With August upon us, the summer heat and humidity can quickly become an issue. Outdoor work is a necessity for most of us and being prepared for these summer conditions are important. Just like winter, we put on a coat before we leave the house, in the summer we must also prepare for the outside conditions.

Here are a few things I do and recommend to friends and family:

  • Hydrate – Water is critical for our bodies to cool itself, drink plenty of water.
  • Hat – If you must work in the sun, wear a hat to protect your head from sunburn.
  • Sunscreen – PF 40 is the minimum I use and if I’m vacationing on the beach or lake, I’ll up it to PF 50.
  • Plan & Prepare – If your work indoors, plan and prepare for your outdoor activity, schedule breaks and bring plenty of water. Don’t overdo it and know your limitations.

Stay Safe & Enjoy the Summer!
