Is your Windows XPiring????
Microsoft support for Windows XP terminates on April 8th, 2014. After that date, no further security or enhancement patches will be issued and your computer will become increasingly vulnerable to hacking and other exploits. To prevent this, there are basically two options, get a new computer with an updated operating system or upgrade your old one. Most computers that can run XP can also run Windows 7, though some of the hardware may not be fully supported and it is advisable to upgrade your memory at the same time for maximum performance. You can download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor tool (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor) to see what hardware and software is supported. An upgrade from XP to 7 must be a 'fresh' installation that involves backing up your personal files and requires all of your software to be reinstalled afterward (assuming it's still available and compatible).
The cost for the software and installation is typically less than $200. If you have any questions, give us a call!
HOT!!! HOT!!! HOT!!! HOT!!! HOT!!!
The CryptoLocker Ransomware is becoming more and more widespread.
If it infects you, it will ENCRYPT ALL YOUR PERSONAL FILES.
They will only be made available again after you pay the Ransom of $100, $300, or as much as $2000!!!
It's critical you make and maintain a backup for your computer before it's too late. See our posts on Facebook for more information.
