  • August 2008 Spyware Warning

    Warning

    We are getting so many calls at the moment from people who have clicked on the XP Antivirus 2008 installer.  PLEASE IGNORE THIS POPUP AND USE THE X IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF THE BOX TO CLOSE THE WINDOW.  Then run Windows Defender and your antivirus software to remove the spyware from your computer.  This is an extremely viscious spyware and can do a lot of damage to your computer.  If you are in anyway unsure, please call Michael immediately on 1300 4 67523 or 04270 67523.

    It is always best not to click on popups, so if one pops up that you think is from one of your legitimate programs, click the X to close it, then open that program and check from there if it was a real message.  MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE OPENING WINDOWS DEFENDER, as this program also uses the castle symbol.  So many of these security warnings are actually very clever ways to infect your computer.

    And as always, DO NOT OPEN AN EMAIL MESSAGE THAT YOU DON’T RECOGNISE.  Turn off your preview pane and always instantly delete suspicious emails.  Two at the moment that are very hard to distinguish are the undelivered mail message, and the UPS package undeliverable.

    Please let everyone know

    This latest spyware threat is affecting everyone.  Please forward this message to your friends to keep their computer safe.

    Special Offer for our newsletter readers

    Wow it’s been so very long since I sent a message to you all, and for that I apologise.  There will be a new message from me in your inbox next month, filled with all the usual info, but for now here is a speciall offer just for you!

    Newsletter Offer

    We have managed to secure a UPS (one only) for the amazing price of $1540 delivered and installed.  This unit retails for over $2200.

    So what is a UPS and why would you need one? An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a device that sits between a power supply (e.g. a wall outlet) and a device (e.g. a computer) to prevent undesired features of the power source (outages, surges, etc.) from the supply adversely affecting the performance of the device.

    A UPS has internal batteries to guarantee that continuous power is provided to the equipment even if the power source stops providing power. Of course the UPS can only provide power for a while, typically a few minutes, but that is often enough to ride out power company glitches or short outages. Even if the outage is longer than the battery lifetime of the UPS, this provides the opportunity to execute an orderly shutdown of the equipment. Advantages:

    1. Computer jobs don’t stop because the power fails.
    2. Users not inconvenienced by computer shutting down.
    3. Equipment does not incur the stress of another (hard) power cycle.
    4. Data isn’t lost because a machine shut down without properly shutting down.

    So act now!  Call Michael on 1300 4 MR LCD to arrange for him to install the UPS now.  As mentioned earlier, there is only one unit, so get in quick to ensure you don’t miss out.

    New Banking Details

    We have changed Banks, we decided it was time for some happy banking! Can you please update your internet banking to our new bank details:

    We will keep our old account temporarily while we make the transition, but please update as soon as possible to make sure payments don’t go missing!
