  • We are seeing a number of computers come in with a nasty virus called Sirefef.B Not only will it open your computer up to other infections, it is installing the ‘ZeroAccess’ rootkit which can cause your files to be ‘hidden’ and/or your network connection to stop working. MalwareBytes and other Anti-Virus programs will clean the virus, but rarely fix the damage. We can often repair the damage without a complete windows reinstall. So if you or a friend have this type of trouble with your PC, let us get you back online!

  • A major security flaw has been discovered in a feature left on by default on most home WiFi routers. Using a tool released today, someone can hack into your WiFi router in a few hours and then often obtain your network password. Until router manufacturers release a fix, almost all routers are vulnerable to this unless they have WPS disabled. However, make sure you aren’t using WPS – if you entered the 8 digit pin off your router to connect to it, you are. Unsure if you are vulnerable or how to secure your router against this new threat? We can help! Just bring your router in to IT Xpress and we can ensure the configuration is secure and it is running the latest version of it’s software.

  • Excellent advice for the holidays as more and more children get online with phones, tablets, laptops, etc. Setting up basic parental controls isn’t that hard, though you can’t prevent access to everything. But this is a good start.

  • We’re VERY excited about a new system management tool that we hope to offer to our clients next year. It’ll be like having your own in house IT person who can make sure your computer is running at peak performance and any crashes or software updates are dealt with automatically. If your computer begins to struggle, we get notified about it before you even realize it and can often fix it remotely. Very cool stuff. We’re testing it out currently and hope to have it available soon!

  • I’ve gotten this question from a number of customers, so figured I’d share… If you have Microsoft Vista or Windows 7 and like to use Internet Explorer 9 or Google Chrome, there is no ‘search box’ anymore where you can type in something to search. Instead, simply type your search into the address bar and hit enter. It’ll use the default search engine to search and return the results.
