BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP ... I cannot stress this enough ...

I am currently working on a Laptop where the Hard Drive has failed and I am doing my utmost to recover thousands of photos that are stored on that drive. I have managed to save a lot, but there will be a few hundred that are lost forever, a really sad situation. In this particular instance, photos are the main problem, but this could just as easily be invoices, receipts, tax returns, complicated spreadsheets, even music, and it’s all preventable !

There are many different ways of backing up your data, you can partition your hard drive and back up data to the new partition, you can back data up to an external hard drive, to a USB stick, or even to “the cloud”, your ISP probably gives you a certain amount of free space, if they do, use it ! In an ideal world you will backup your important data on a daily basis, to an external drive AND to the cloud, but of course you may not have the time or the wherewithal to do this, so please at least try to backup your Documents on a weekly basis. You can now buy 1Tb external hard drives for under £50, these are ideal for this use and some even come with pre-loaded backup software.

Backing up to the cloud can be slow, so if you are happy to leave your machine running overnight then you could leave it one night a week to do just that, you can start it manually & leave it or use free software such as Google Drive, MozyHome, SugarSync, Cobian or EaseUS ToDo, if you do not feel comfortable setting this kind of thing up then we can help you for a small fee.

At the end of the day, we want you to have a happy computing experience and for you to NOT lose your data !

Popular Chrome extension turns out to be Spyware!

URGENT ... IMPORTANT ... READ THIS NOW !!!

You should ALL check your Chrome Extensions (click on the 3 horizontal lines in the top Right corner of the window, move your cursor down to More Tools & click on Extensions) ...

If you have an Extension in there called "Webpage Screenshot", then Disable & Delete it IMMEDIATELY ... though you may already be too late !!! It sits on your machine for a week so as to avoid Anti-Malware detection, but then downloads additional code in order to steal your private information, which the company then sells on.

Hi everybody, a little bit of news I heard today ...

As you are all hopefully aware, it is imperative that you protect your computer from the outside world. There are a lot of strange people out there and for some bizarre reason some of them want to make the day-to-day enjoyment of using your PC problematic. Some of them want you to lose your data, some of them just want your PC to disconnect from the Internet randomly, as I said, strange people !!! However, there are also those whose intentions are far darker and they want your personal details in order to commit fraud ...

The obvious way for you to prevent this is to have a good Anti-Virus program installed on your PC and to keep it up to date at all times. There are also a number of other steps that you can take, other types of program that you can install, that will guard against browser hijackers, spyware, adware & other malware.

In the past it has always been possible to use the free Anti-Virus programs as a first-line of defence, the likes of Avast, AVG & Panda, but now it seems that even they have fallen for the temptation of the easy money that is available from installing PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) when you install their main programs.

The obvious answer is to pay for your Anti-Virus protection (Eset, Kaspersky & Avira all have a good reputation) but who has the cash in these hard times when there are still all these free alternatives ?

So, a word of advice ... If you must use free Anti-Virus software, please be vigilant when installing it (or when installing any software, in fact), read ALL of the messages and beware for small little message with check boxes !!! If you see one then 99 times out of a 100 you are better off un-checking the little boxes that ask you if you also want to install other software, however appealing the marketing makes it seem !!!

If you think you are affected then please contact Stow PC, we won't charge you the earth & we will update all of your Drivers and Software at the same time, so that when you get the PC back it will be clean and running smoothly (y)

IMPORTANT !!!

Watch out for tax refund email scams. HMRC is warning people to be on their guard.

If you are due for a tax refund, HMRC never contacts you by email – they always send a letter through the post.

If you get an email which claims to be from HMRC, and which offers you a tax refund, you should send it to [email protected] and then permanently delete it.
