Fake Anti-Virus Warning!

Do you have a new anti-virus program that you do not know about or remember installing?

A rise in fake antivirus offerings on Web sites around the globe shows that scammers are increasingly turning to social engineering to get malware on computers rather than exploiting holes in software, a Google study to be released on Tuesday indicates.

Fake antivirus--false pop-up warnings designed to scare money out of computer users--represents 15 percent of all malware that Google detects on Web sites, according to 13-month analysis the company conducted between January 2009 and February 2010.

*NEWS FLASH*


 
Fast-teks is now offering a 30-day free trial of its remote data backup software!                                          

                                                     
Can you imagine what would happen if you lost all your critical business files and data due to fire, flood, theft, or earthquake? How would it feel to lose valuable family photos, your music collection or that school assignment you'd been working on for weeks due to hard drive failure?


Sadly, homes and businesses experience this situation every day. While backing up your information to DVDs, tapes or external drives is always a good idea, these methods don't ensure protection - DVDs scratch, tapes break and hard drives crash.

With Fast-teks secure remote data backup, files are encrypted and sent over the Internet to two separate data centers, each with their own backup systems in place. The process is simple - you decide what information you want to backup and when, and the software takes care of the rest. Just set the automatic backup schedule once and you're good to go!


Recovering your files is just as easy - you have instant access to them anywhere you have an online connection. All you need is your user information and your backed up data is readily accessible.

After the 30-day free trial period is up, we offer extremely reasonable rates for ongoing backup services. For further details on our monthly plans call us at 843-608-TEKS (8357) or fill in our Quick Contact form to the right of the screen and we'll get back to you.

Entreprenuer.com Productivity Tips #106 - 109 – Revitalize your Windows PC.

 

 

106.

Revitalize your Windows PC

After about a year, Windows PCs typically develop a sort of electronic sclerosis, where apps take longer to launch, and everything seems more and more sluggish. If you don't mind opening your desktop or laptop, or paying someone to, adding a RAM can be a fast and cheap way to improve performance.

Another option is to
reinstall the operating system. The process will take a few hours, but you'll recoup that in spades by gaining a faster, less buggy machine.

Bonus: Backing up your files before the reinstallation also ensures that you won't waste even more time someday when your hard drive crashes.

107.

Put Your desktop in Your Pocket

Access files on your computer from your smartphone using apps and services such as Ovi File, Soonr and WebEx's PCNow. No more wasting time--or your client's time--having to go back to the office to get an important document.

108.

Don't Lose Your Laptop To Overheating

Install a free app, such as Core Temp or MobileMeter, that monitors your laptop's internal temperature. Sure, your machine will automatically shut off it overheats, but by then, the damage can be done, such as a fried motherboard, which can take a week and several hundred dollars to replace--plus lost productivity.

109.

Ditch The Crapware

Uninstall all of the superfluous software--sometimes called "crapware"--that comes with a new PC, particularly laptops. It bogs down performance. Better yet, if you're custom-ordering your machine, tell the vendor not to install it in the first place.
