Urgent warning: We have just received an email confirming an order for BHLive Peter Pan Pantomime tickets - with our tickets 'attached' to the email. The email looks very convincing, but contains a dangerous Trojan that attempts to steal banking passwords, encrypts the whole computer and demands money to unlock the computer. Be aware, do not open any attachments of this nature. As far as we can tell, the email doesn't indicate that your credit card has been compromised in any way (it is not a real order).
If you're having little issues with Windows 8 (slow, Internet issues, email problems, app freezes), try restarting the computer instead of shutting down or hibernating. Restarting is the best way to clear any clogged memory. But whatever you do, don't do a system refresh, restore, recovery or reload!
SCAM ALERT - Calls from Microsoft or your Internet provider? They will never call you about problems with your PC. It's a scam - do not give them any personal detail or access to your computer. If you co-operate with the scammer, it may result in: - charges to your credit card - theft of banking / PayPal details - spam sent to / from your email account - a password appearing on your PC, with a ransom payable to the scammer (to unlock it) - fake or questionable apps on your screen
Don't forget to unplug your router from the PHONE line during a thunderstorm - phone lines conduct lightning very well. Lightning can damage your router and any computers attached via Ethernet cables. We've often seen damage even if the strike is far away
Scammers are using every trick in the book to get you to open email attachments, so be careful: latest email trends include fake Tax refunds, parking fines, undelivered parcels, court summons, online billing refunds, account suspended/locked. Take care!
Lots of people are asking if they will be affected by the latest GameOver Zeus threat... In general you'll be fine if you're running an up-to-date antivirus, only visiting trusted websites and being careful about opening email attachments. And yes, you should always have an up-to-date backup of all important files.
Microsoft Security Essentials now displays a warning to Windows XP users. Please be aware that although XP will not receive any further updates, your Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus will actually continue to update until next year. It's just another way for Microsoft to encourage users to migrate to a new Windows 8 computer. That said, you shouldn't wait until then to upgrade...
5 days until support ends for Windows XP ends. It doesn't mean that Windows will stop working overnight, but it's time to start considering replacing your computer if you can. Vista and Windows 7/8 users are not affected.
