Did you know that approximately 1 in every 10 web pages is infected with a virus?
If you don’t have any protection on your computer you are acting like a bright light to a moth and are making yourself a target for all sorts of nasty software which will attempt to get access to your computer and the data you have stored on it. By data we don’t just mean your word documents we mean anything you type into a web browser, like your bank details, date of birth, address. In short you need to protect yourself and we can help find a suitable way of doing so.
Have you received an attachment on an email that you weren’t expecting? – Don’t open it, delete it! This is the most common way of getting infected, the name of the attachment or subject line of the email is designed to peak your curiosity, and overdue invoice, a tax refund or even a promise of payment, ask yourself if you were expecting that kind of communication? If not delete the email.
It’s also worth remembering that “Microsoft” or to be honest anybody else will never phone you and tell you that there is a problem with your computer, these people are very persuasive and very convincing but they are fraudsters and should never be allowed access to your computer hang up the phone. Don’t give them the time of day, if you are concerned after receiving one of these phone calls contact us for free advice and guidance.
