Simple advice on keeping your computer safe

imagesWe’re 3 jobs away from the 10,000 mark here at PC Express. Of the 10,000 jobs taken in around 40% are virus removal jobs and 30% of them hard drive failure. We’d like to take this moment to remind you of some little things you can do to minimise the risk of infection or hard drive failure.

VIRUS ADVICE

  • Never open an email attachment that you are not expecting unless is from someone you know. Even if you do know sender you should be sure it’s something they have actually sent you. Attachments to be wary of end in .ZIP .EXE .SCR. Attachments that are generally safe are .PDF .JPG.
  • Never login to websites from a link in an email, especially for Banks, Royal Mail, Couriers, eBay or PayPal. These links often take you to a replica site that will steal your login credentials. The safest way is to visit the website through your internet browser and login that way.
  • Don’t listen to anyone who calls you claiming to fix your computer, they may even claim to be from Microsoft. They aren’t. Just say “No thank you and put the phone down”.
  • When installing programs, rather than clicking ‘Next, next, next’ in a hurry. Check to see if other things are being bundled with the software you are installing that you may not want or need.
  • Ignore tools that claim to ‘Boost’ and ‘Speed up’ your computer 95% are bogus and ransom you into paying money. A good, free tool for clean up in CCleaner available from Piriform.

HARD DRIVE DISASTER ADVICE

Always keep a recent back up of data, weekly is a good idea. Hard drives are part mechanical and part electronic. Both these technologies are prone to sudden failure at any time.
Try to avoid moving around with the laptop whilst its on, the hard drive has moving parts inside and moving the laptop during use can cause shocks to the drive.
Don’t put off buying a backup solution, so many customers say they intended to do it and never get around to it resulting in either complete data loss or very expensive specialist data recovery. You can pick up an External Hard Drive for £40-£50. Specialist data recovery will cost £300+. Cloud backup solutions are also available which will automate backups for you.

One final tip for laptop owners, if you are carrying your laptop around, unplug the power cable from the laptop first. Not doing this is likely to damage your power socket over time which is another popular repair we provide.

If you want more information or advice please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0161 291 1044 or follow us on any of our social media links.

BT RequestThe BT internet webpage is also down, leaving customers clueless to what has happen to one of the UK’s biggest internet providers.

Further information will be posted as we find out more.

 

Update: 15:43 2/2/16

Why have iPhone 5 screen repairs increased in price?

iphoneReplacement screens are not all manufactured by Apple, LG or Sharp even though Chinese distributors would like you to believe they are, most of them are counterfeit. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or Original are words chosen to describe parts that are near Apple’s required quality standard when in actual fact would often be rejected by the OEM.

So what’s happening in the market?

A large over-supply of poor quality screens have forced Chinese suppliers to produce and deliver higher quality parts; there has been a huge increase of returns to many sellers making repair companies look to buy higher cost screen to reduce the defect rate.

Another reason is that Apple want you to upgrade to iPhone 6, the life cycle of an iPhone was intended to last around 3 years so Apple want people to transition off the old device to a new one. Apple have been seizing fake screens along with other counterfeit goods thus having a knock on effect to the cost of replacement parts. If the price of the replacement parts go up, it could make the older phones B.E.R. (Beyond Economical Repair).

Chinese part vendors have also been known to price fix especially when goods have been seized by customs; Apple may well be aggressively working alongside customs so seize inbound parts driving the cost of repairs up in order to increase sales of new handsets.

What about iPhone 6 ?

iPhone 6 LCD’s and 6 plus are believed to be following suit in the near future.
