Windows 7 End of Life

On January 14th, 2020, Windows 7 will reach its end of life.  What this means to the average home/business user is that Microsoft will stop releasing security updates.  Without the most recent security updates, your system will become more vulnerable to virus and malware infections.  It is recommended that you upgrade to Windows 10 as soon as possible.  Here at Jordan’s Electronics, we can assist you with this process.  Contact us at 402-874-0895 or email Jordan at jordan@jordanspcs.com

Download Buttons

As with some newer computers that don’t come with optical drives, downloading software packages from the Internet has become the norm.  Occasionally, you may see a flashy button that says “Download Here” or “Download Now” that looks like a legitimate link, more than likely, if you click that button, will lead to an infection of you system.  Its not a guarantee for and infection

Lost Files

Sometimes when you accidentally delete a file, it doesn’t actually delete the file. It deletes the reference to the file on the storage device. With the right software, there is a good chance that you are able to get that file recovered properly

Ransomware Beware

Recently, many network systems in over 150 countries, including the United States, have come under attack from a new piece of ransomware called WannaCry.  Ransomware is a malware infection that holds your computer files hostage in an attempt to gain money.  Even if you do pay the ransom, there’s no guarantee that you will get your files back.  What mainly sets this one apart from other pieces of malware is that this one was built to exploit security holes in old/outdated versions of Windows.  Microsoft has since released an update to patch the hole, unfortunately, it was too late for many of those networks, which included telephone services, hospitals, government facilities and other major companies.  Fortunately, it may not be too late for you.  Give Jordan a call at 402-874-0895 or email jordan@jordanspcs.com to get cleaned and get protected.
