This one is kind of important...
We've received alerts that new versions of the CryptoLocker class of viruses are now able to scavenge and encrypt non-mapped network shares. This was kind of inevitable unfortunately and will only continue to get worse. Most anti-virus software can't even stop it, and it's too easy to make the mistake of clicking on that bogus shipping PDF, or resume, or poisoned link in a Google search.
We cannot stress enough the need to have a good backup! Anything you don't want to lose, make sure you have two copies of it stored in different places that are not directly accessible! Our private on-line backup service is ideal for this; We've seen far too many good people lose their entires lives' worth of pictures, documents, videos, memories, and so on - it's a lesson nobody should have to learn!
Pop in and talk to us about backup. Or call us. Or e-mail us. Or run out to some random store and get yourself an external hard drive and copy your memories over!
Whatever you do, do SOMETHING.

As we rush headlong into our 21st year of business, the fact that I haven't posted an update to our website in over six months is both embarrassing and a clear indicator of how crazy things have been! Evolutions in our own systems and technologies have been making all our heads spin - in a wonderful way! Windows 10, the Intel NUC, expansion of our Forest.on.Line offerings... The list goes on!
Speaking of Windows 10, the upgrade has been very simple, straightforward and reliable! Microsoft has really put a lot of effort into this and it shows. However - two VERY important things to note; MAKE SURE you click the option that says "Customize settings" when you are offered it. DO NOT do the "Express Settings" as you will miss a lot of questions and options that you will want to have a choice in! Secondly, you do NOT have to create a Microsoft Account if you don't want to. Just continue using your existing login information. If you wish to use the Microsoft Store or any of those services, sign up for an account at that time.
If you're not comfortable doing your own upgrade to Windows 10, whether you are a home or business user, engage our experts to help you through it!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and all the best for the season and a very happy and prosperous New Year to all!
