14Sep15 – DoctorLaptop’s Tips and September Specials

-The Win 10 keylogger, which sends every keystroke you make and word you speak into the computer’s mic, whether you are online or not, back to Microsoft and the NSA, has been inserted into all versions of Win 7/8/8.1 thru unlabeled Windows Updates! Fortunately you can easily remove these updates from Win 7/8/8.1. Follow the instructions at the bottom of this article, http://tinyurl.com/os2po37 .

-Nerja area is having a bad week for internet connectivity, both by phone line and wireless ISP. Some solid, phone based Telefonica 10MB/s connections in downtown Nerja were only getting 1.5 to 3MB/s. Some wireless ISPs were so slow email servers were logging you out for lack of activity while you waited for pages to fill in. Remember, there are 2 components to internet connections and they are equally important, speed and quality. You need both for optimum performance. Use www.speedof.me and www.pingtest.net to check these.

-Be careful when purchasing budget priced laptops under 500euros. If you feel the screen flex when you open the laptop avoid it! If the keyboard flexes when you type, avoid it! These are made of thin plastic and are prone to breakage. The only Lenovo laptops I recommend are the Thinkpad line.

I am now settled into my new location. To celebrate the move I am offering the following Special Deals for the remainder of September.
