Viruses are no Joke to your PC

With computer viruses running wild, most clients are loosing their data, pictures and music and most of the time, you just can not get it back.
Worst then that,

the virus can and will spread through your computer network and infect other machines

including your servers. This is a good time to look at your business insurance and make sure you have coverage for work loss due to computer viruses.
It takes money and time to get everything back in working order.

About Ransomware:

Ransomware is a malicious software that purports to be from FBI, Department of Homeland Security, or other official government offices.

This extortive malware prevents computer users from accessing their computers until they pay up to $950 in ransom facilitated through Moneypak or via bitcoins.

The Ransomware is installed furtively in a user’s computer through questionable sites that carry malicious scripts and download Trojan-bundled software without any need for user intervention. Once installed, this Moneypak Ransomware will display a ransom note, alerting the user that the computer is blocked for several stated reasons. As a malware, these warnings are completely baseless, and PC users are discouraged from paying the fine imposed by these scamware artists.

Windows XP support has ended

As of April 8, 2014, support and updates for Windows XP are no longer available. Don’t let your PC go unprotected.

windows xp upgrades

Affordable XP upgrades

What happens if I continue to use Windows XP?

If you continue to use Windows XP now that support has ended, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Internet Explorer 8 is also no longer supported, so if your Windows XP PC is connected to the Internet and you use Internet Explorer 8 to surf the web, you might be exposing your PC to additional threats. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter more apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.

PC Repair of CT can help you with this problem.

We offer upgrades to Windows 7 and with the upgrade we can move your existing data.

Windows 7 also has the benefit of being a highly refined, complete operating system. From the start, it was a vast improvement over Windows Vista, rather than a complete reinvention that introduced new problems. And since its launch in 2009, it has received a major Service Pack upgrade and countless bug fixes. Windows 7 isn’t perfect by any means, but unlike Windows 8, it doesn’t feel like a work in progress.

A Steep Learning Curve for Windows 8

By comparison, Windows 8 (and the sweeping Windows 8.1 update) has a steeper learning curve. Microsoft got rid of the pop-up Start menu and replaced it with an app launcher that takes up the entire screen. This Start screen is filled with new kinds of apps that are optimized for touch interaction. While the desktop is still available, you may find yourself getting bounced back and forth between the two interfaces

The experienced technicians at PC Repair of CT can offer you solutions on which is the best product for your home or business computing needs. We provide upgrade services for Office products, AntiVirus products and more.

  • Broken or cracked screens replacement and repairs for Apple and Windows laptops.
  • Damaged keyboards repairs for Dell, IBM, Sony, HP, Compaq, Lenovo, Compaq, Acer, Asus, Samsung.
