  • There is no such thing as a free lunch. Free software generally is free because the developers monetize it by selling info to advertisers or bundling additional adware into the installers. That's not to say free software is bad – a lot of it is fantastic. Just know there are tradeoffs. Not sure what antivirus is right for you? Give IT Xpress a call (336-525-5005) or email ([email protected])

  • Microsoft is downloading Windows 10 in the background, even if you haven't chosen to upgrade yet (it won't install until you agree). For most this means little beyond losing 3-6GB of disk space. But for anyone on metered Internet connections (MiFi or an ISP with a data cap), this could surprise you.

  • Ad networks are being used more and more in malware campaigns. We tell clients all the time that one of the easiest steps they can take to help protect from malware is install an Ad Blocker (we recommend uBlock Origin currently for Chrome users).
