It's the most wonderful time of the year . . . for scammers
Christmas time, family is over, and if they didn't bring their own computer guess whose they are using? Yours. With more people using your computer there is more chance they'll click on a bad link, or go to a bad website that will bring up a scam pop-up.

Which version of Windows do I have?
Whenever we help people over the phone it's always best if we can imagine what your screen looks like, and for us to do that it helps if we know what version of Windows you're on.

Enable Macros? Maybe not.
With all the news today being focused on data breaches at Facebook, Yahoo! and others that number in the millions of accounts, we hardly ever hear about viruses affecting home computers. Unfortunately, there's a very nasty virus that's just made it onto the scene. It doesn't have an official name yet, as far as I can find, but so far it's easy to spot. It steals all the passwords it can, so it's important to watch out for it.

Fun tech you might not have heard of
One of my favorite things about a smartphone is the camera. They've gotten so good, most people don't own a stand-alone digital camera anymore.
However, you don't get any optical zoom, so when you zoom in the picture isn't as clear. Fortunately, there's an easy way to solve that.

Have you backed up lately?
We write about this subject pretty frequently, but only because it is so important.
I can't tell you how many times we have a computer come into our shop with a failing hard drive. And most times the customer is very fortunate that the drive is not completely dead and we can grab their content, but there are times when it is too late.
