White Windows Icon:
To upgrade or
not to upgrade...
In early June, Microsoft sent out an update to computers running
Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 which caused a white Windows logo to
appear in the the icon group near the clock.
Clicking this icon opens a notification window that allows you to reserve your free copy of Windows 10
which will automatically download into a queue when it is
released in July. The user can then install the Windows 10
upgrade when it's convenient. This is legit and as far
as I know, there are no strings.
Right now, I am advising
customers with Windows 7 machines to NOT reserve the upgrade.
My thinking is to not fix what isn't broken. There is plenty that is not known
about Windows 10. Windows 7 is a great operating system and I
can see no reason to potentially mess it up.
However, I am not at all
impressed with Windows 8 or 8.1. It's laggy and slow.
System refreshes, updates and installations of desktop programs take forever to
complete. For customers who currently have computers running 8
and 8.1, I say do it. Reserve your copy and install it
when it becomes available. You can't make Windows 8 any
worse and maybe it will "fix" some of the things that are
wrong with Windows 8.
Training and Solutions...
New computers are now being shipped with Windows 8 and let's just
say that it's different than what you are used to. If you want
it to look and behave more like Windows 7, I can set it up and configure it so that
it is very much like the
operating system that you already know how to use.

Cryptolocker and its variants are a type of ransomware that
encrypts/corrupts your files.
Currently, there is no cure to regain access to your encrypted files
besides paying the ransom. The malware can be removed but
removal should not be attempted if you intend to pay the authors the
ransom they are asking. There are passive and proactive protection solutions.
