DOCTORLAPTOP’S JUNE SPECIALS

DoctorLaptop’s June Specials
1. Windows 10 Upgrade, only €60
Upgrade any computer that had Windows 7 or 8/8.1 originally installed to Windows 10.
This is not a pirate copy of Windows 10. You will retain your original product key and access to Microsoft Support as long as the current system is the original copy of Windows installed at the factory.
Includes a basic package of programs: BitDefender AntiVirus, CCleaner, WPS Office Suite (MS Office and Excel file compatible), WinRAR, Google Chrome Browser, Skype and VLC Media Player.
2. Install full media center package, only €35.
Includes: CyberGhost Free VPN, uTorrent 2.2.1, KODI 17.3 and another program like KODI but more basic for users that find KODI too complicated. Also provided, a half hour lesson on using your media center programs when you pick up your computer. If you require a more thorough lesson, that can be arranged for a small additional fee.
3. Combine deal 1 &2 for only €85
Note:
-Both deals require the computer to have a minimum of 2Gb RAM.
-A Windows upgrade will erase you old data. If you don’t have your data backed up on another device I can save your old data files and programs and replace them into the newly installed Windows 10 for an extra €20.
-Live tv requires a stable internet connection and reasonably fast connection speeds for optimum performance. Sorry campo dwellers, antenna internet connections are less stable than telephone landline or fiber optic, some buffering is to be expected regardless of your speed.
-Use an HDMI cable or casting dongle to connect your media center enabled computer to your tv for a basic home theater setup.

Stopping the Bot Infection

Ransomware Update – The Threat Continues, by DoctorLaptop

Ransomware Update – The Threat Continues, by DoctorLaptop
Despite what you may have heard about a solution found to stop the recent ransomware attacks the threat is not gone. Be sure you have protected your computers. A new wave of attacks has begun and we should expect several more waves of attacks in coming months. The new attacks don’t only encrypt your data like classic ransomware. Instead some hijack your system and run hacker programs hidden in the background while your computer is on. This is known in tech jargon as turning your computer into a “bot”. As a result your computer gets slow and all your data and info are exposed. Hackers use armies of bots to accomplish hacking schemes that require massive numbers of computers focused on a task, such as doing “denial of service attacks” and “mining” crypto-currency. Read this article for an explanation in easy to understand terms.  Contact me if you need help or have questions. Email: doctorlaptop@protonmail.com or Mobile 675 993 069 (after 11am please).
