Hello Everyone, I hope that this finds you all doing well. As you know I have been ill and it has taken a tole on my family and me. On the heals of that my computer fell ill as well so, I thought.
This person called my home portraying himself as a Windows Microsoft Representative saying that my computer had been sending error messages to Microsoft and that it was very important that it be fixed. He showed me through the Eventview on my computer what they had been seeing. Once, he was able to show me that without him even in my computer and him showing the Microsoft certification seal. He was allowed into my desk top and laptop. He showed me things that I did not know were happening to my computer.
He showed me that they could clean up the errors and then stated that they had programs that would protect, clean and anti hacking for a one time cost of $138 for the desktop and $99 for the laptop. So, I took it and then. I saw the “Blue Screen Of Death” not only once but twice since March 4, 2016. I began to think something was else was wrong and contacted Geek Squad. Who by the way I have used for many years.
The GeekSquad Tech was able to show me that all that program was doing is clearing the errors and not fixing them. He showed me that I could clear them myself. He was able to fix both computer. Once, I get better I plan to update this post.
More, now then ever you need to protect you computer and website.
How Secure Is Your Web Site?

According to a 2012 Sophos Security Threat Report, on average 30,000 websites are hacked every day.Feb 9, 2015. Whilst some big brands may be specifically targeted, generally, cyber criminals simply use highly effective computer software programs to automatically detect vulnerable websites, which are perfect to infect, no matter how big or small they are.
After a year of big data breaches like Home Depot and Sony, and widespread security vulnerabilities in our shared software, which spawned the likes of Heartbleed and Shellshock, it’s easy to predict that cybersecurity will be a hot topic in 2015.
Our new Security Threat Trends 2015 report investigates the biggest security risks on the horizon and explains the real-world impact of evolving threats on businesses and consumers.
Nearly two dozen cybersecutity experts from Georgia Tech, business, government and defense, share their observations about emerging trends in a more connected world — where cyberattacks grow more persistent and sophisticated by the day. While some threats and response mechanisms continue unchanged year over year, other conflicts and challenges are becoming dramatically more intense. Academia, industry and government must work together in bold new ways to solve the grand challenges of cybersecurity. According to Georgia Tech Institue for informaltion Sercurity & Privacy (http://www.iisp.gatech.edu/2016-emerging-cyber-threats-report)
