Encryption, the next level of protection for your information

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 29 Apr, 2015
It is not a secret to all of us that hackers are everywhere. They have the skills and devices to hack into your system for their personal gain. They could acquire anything and everything once they got in, they could steal your pictures, videos, emails and most importantly, information about you. If these hackers has acquired info about you, your family and your bank accounts then they can use is against you. Hackers could either steal money from your bank account or black mail you to extort something.

If your computer contains sensitive information that you want to protect, I would recommend using a good encryption program. This way, hackers could not easily steal any info about you. For those who are not familiar with an encryption program, I will explain it here on how it works.

First of all, encryption is a next level of protection that scrambles the contents which could not be accessed by someone without its secret key or password. Encrypting a data could be compared to a zip file with a password wherein you need to input a password first before you could get the files inside.

Reasons why an outdated antivirus can be critical

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 27 Apr, 2015
As we all know, an antivirus is a type of application that helps us guard our computers from viruses. It prevents malwares and other viruses to penetrate into your systems. It is a must for computers to be installed with an anti-virus software.

Most people think that when an anti-virus software is already installed, they are already 100% protected but that is definitely not true. Anti-virus software needs to be updated regularly to ensure protection from new viruses.
Almost every day, new viruses are being developed and that is why we also need to update our software to make sure that even new viruses could be prevented.

I once have a client who does not have an internet connection and then suddenly called me and complains that his computer is starting to slow down. I immediately checked his computer and discovered that his computer was infected by a virus from a flash drive. He asked me that how did it entered his system even though an anti-virus is installed. This is the question that you will normally hear from clients.

Before I install any anti-virus application, I do explain it to clients that an anti - virus software needs to be updated regularly... ... continue |

The end of Windows XP

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 30 Apr, 2014
After more than a decade of existence, Microsoft has now decided to end the support for Windows XP. According to Microsoft, they have decided to stop giving out updates for XP so that they could invest more on new technologies. This means that all XP computers won't be able to receive updates anymore which could result to a computer vulnerable to viruses and the like.

If you still want to use XP, you may still do so but do bear in mind that without the updates, you're computer is at risk. I would really recommend upgrading your OS to a newer version of Windows for you to have a peace of mind.

For those who would want to transfer their files, a simple partition or even a flash drive would do the trick. You could save your files to a separate partition or to your flash drive so that when you need to install the newer version, you could just copy it back but this would only copy your files and not the settings or programs. It could also be possible to use Windows update but it would depend if your computer could meet the requirements.

I know that many are still... ... continue |
