PUPies and Viruses

PUPies

No, it's not time to call the vet, but if your computer is running like an overweight basset hound, it may be time to put a leash on some unwanted programs. These unwanted programs are classified depending on how they attach themselves to your computer.

Viruses are programs that attach themselves to other programs. They also replicate themselves and attempt to infect other systems.

Trojan Horses are programs that are embedded inside another program that appears to be something of value.

What is Windows 10?

There is much talk about Windows 10 that Microsoft is currently working on. After the fiasco called Windows 8, businesses especially have been waiting with aging systems for the next OS. Windows 10 will probably be released sometime late this year. Current technical review builds show some promising improvements in the Microsoft OS. The best way I can describe it is a merging of Windows 7 and Windows 8 with a few extra features thrown in.

Fighting Viruses

When your computer is sick, it never hurts to get a cat scan. :-)

The first line of defense in the war against computer viruses is simply to be alert when opening your email. Most of today's viruses are transmitted via emails that appear to come from legitimate sources. If you are not expecting a package from UPS, don't open that UPS attachment giving you instructions on how to get your package that could not be delivered. (UPS will hang a tag on your door if you are not at home.)
