System Updates: What are they? Why Do I need them?

wecanrepairanylaptopor pcinperryhallmarylandMicrosoft Update is a service that allows for the periodic patching of system files to address known issues with Microsoft products. There are several categories of Microsoft updates:

Service Packs – Service Packs which contain a rollup of all patches to date for a specific piece of software or operating system and usually have additional feature changes.

Critical Updates – Critical Updates are to fix any major issue that is found in Microsoft products that could cause software errors or unexpected behavior.

Software Updates – Non-critical issues, such as extended features and minor bugs.

Security Updates – These updates patch security vulnerabilities that could allow a system to become compromised. Security updates are classified as Critical, Important, Moderate, Low, or non-rated.

Microsoft Updates prevent problems.  Not only do Microsoft Updates fix known bugs in software and operating systems, but they plug critical security holes that could drastically affect your security. Microsoft vulnerabilities are actively exploited in countless viruses, which could have been easily prevented by maintaining updates.

Connected PC Solutions advises users should keep Windows as up to date as possible. Ignoring these could leave your computer extremely vulnerable to hackers and malicious code.

Computer Running Slow? What to do about it

Perry_Hall_MD_PC_TRepair_TechComputers running Microsoft’s Windows operating system are notorious for slowing down over time. A lot of my customers come to me assuming that PCs get slower as they age, and need a hardware upgrade – perhaps something as drastic as a new PC.

But this is simply not true.  The main problem Windows users face is a lack of maintenance. Tiny problems accumulate over time, gradually straining the system until it falls down under its own weight. What’s needed is a PC Tune up from Connected PC Solutions.

But sometimes – just sometimes – something more drastic is required. No more time for pruning and shearing: it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start again. It’s time to re-install Windows.  Contact our Perry Hall, MD Computer Repair to get your PC performing it’s best.

Quick Tip: Price Comparison Sites and SPAM

spamBy using a price comparison site, you are automatically giving that site permission to send your details to other companies, and those other companies policies on spam may not be so tightly controlled. The comparison website may not spam you, but in order to provide you with quotes from fifty different companies they have to send your details electronically to all those other companies. It’s those other companies that are liable to spam you, and who you cannot opt out of. In today’s  economy we all need to be careful with our hard earned dollar but we also need to be equally careful with out own personal information. Surf safe, surf wise and be aware.

Let me Tell Ya About Router Security

wifi_Perry_Hall_PC_REPAIRMany folks setting up wireless home networks rush through the job to get their Internet connectivity working as quickly as possible. That’s totally understandable. It’s also quite risky as numerous security problems can result. Today’s Wi-Fi networking products don’t always help the situation as configuring their security features can be time-consuming and non-intuitive.

Why your router needs to be secured:

Increase bandwidth usage. Most ISPs provide a set amount of bandwidth from data transfer to and from the Internet. Many times if you were to go over that limit you would be charged a specific amount per gigabyte or worse your account could be disabled until the next billing cycle.

Providing access to local resources. When someone is connected to your router, they may be able to access to your local computers since they have gained access to the local area network managed by your router.

Anything that happens online can be traced back to you. You ISP (Internet Service Provider) assigns an IP address to you that you use when connecting online. All data that you request online is sent to your unique IP address. If someone who you don’t know connects to your router, and then does something illegal, such as hacking, malware-related, or worse, law enforcement can will track the IP address right back to your wireless router. This can have serious consequences for you if this does happen.
