I have a virus, how do I get rid of it?
As you may already know, there are many ways that you can get rid of Viruses and Malware, one of them is to re-install a copy of Windows and start from scratch, the issue with this is that you usually use all of your data, my favorite way to get rid of Malware is by installing a copy of Malwarebytes, this amazing software will protect your computer and help you get rid of Spyware and Adaware too, to get your copy click on the banner below (discount code).
Is Windows XP Safe To Use?
A lot of people have applications that work just fine with Windows XP and they do not feel like upgrading their computers, if you are one of those people and do not see a need to upgrade or buy a brand new computer here are a few things to consider when keeping your Windows XP computer.
The first thing that you want to do is check to see if the application that you need requires an internet connection, if not then it would be a good idea to disconnect that Windows XP computer from your network, also I would not keep any personal or sensitive data on it since it could be easily hacked.
Finally, if you decide to keep your Windows XP computer because of a very specific program that you like you can consider checking to see if there is a way to create a virtual machine and use those applications in a virtual environment or you can also check to see if that application will run in Windows XP mode.
If you would like us to do this for you feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you with your Windows XP needs, just send us an email and we’ll contact you back within 24 hours.
