MyComputerWorks Horsham Half price Mac & PC MOT checkups is back until 31st October

Here at Mycomputerworks, we offer an MOT service to assess how well your computer is working before something serious may go wrong. If your computer seems a little off its game these days, you’re in luck as we’re running half-price MOTs for the next 4 weeks until 31st october. Get in touch and we’ll give it a good once-over.

What exactly is a MOT? Our MOT service is a simple check-up that will clean up your files, clear away the cobwebs (sometimes literally), tidy your components and assess whether or not everything is working the way it should. More specifically, a Mycomputerworks MOT includes:

System Overview: We’ll run system diagnostics and if we find a particular component that needs to be fixed or if you’re due for an upgrade that will allow you to get more out of your computer, we’ll let you know about it and let you decide how you would like to move forward.

Operating system Check-Up. We’ll fully check your operating system and make sure there’s nothing slowing your computer down. We’ll get rid of temporary files and clear anything that’s keeping your machine from operating to the best of its ability.

Hard Disk Check. If your computer has a HDD (hard disk drive), we’ll run some house-keeping programmes to make sure the file is intact and running properly. We’ll also assess the integrity of your drive and keep an eye out for any signs of early failure. (If we detect signs of early failure, it may be time for you to upgrade to a SSD, or solid-state drive.

In-Depth Internal Clean. You would not believe the things we have found inside some computers and you’d be surprised by the amount of dust and dirt that manages to find its way into the body of a machine. By removing dirt, dust, hair and other debris from inside your computer, it will run cooler (two thumbs up for less overheating!) and will help you save on precious battery power.

External Clean. We’ll buff out smudges, deep clean your keyboard, and make your screen glisten again with a thorough exterior clean. The computer cleaning products we use are antibacterial for a super clean germ-free finish.

Microsoft Windows 10 has a keylogger enabled by default – here’s how to disable it

Microsoft Windows 10 has a keylogger enabled by default – here’s how to disable it | Privacy Online News

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2017/03/microsoft-windows-10-keylogger-enabled-default-heres-disable

What is a Keylogger?

A keylogger, also known as keystroke logging or keylogging, is a method of tracking the strokes on a keyboard without the knowledge of the user. This information is then collected and used to access private accounts or collect personal information. Keyloggers can come in the form of software, hardware, or external monitoring such as acoustic analysis or electromagnetic emissions. Software-based keyloggers use the target computer’s operating system in various ways, including: imitating a virtual machine (hypervisor-based or virtual machine manager), acting as the keyboard driver (kernel-based), using the application programming interface to watch keyboard strokes (API-based), recording information submitted on web-based forms (Form Grabber based) or capturing network traffic associated with HTTP POST events to steal passwords (Packet analyzers). Alternatively, keylogging can be done without installing software and can rely on modifying BIOS firmware (firmware-based) or installing a hardware circuit between the keyboard and the computer that logs keyboard stroke activity (keyboard hardware). Acoustic keylogging monitors the sound created by each individual keystroke and uses the subtly different acoustic signature that each key emits to analyze and determine what the target computer’s user is typing. Electromagnetic emission monitoring can capture the emissions from a wired (plug-in) keyboard from over 60 feet away using a wide-band receiver to keylog. Besides using standard malware-avoidance techniques, using a virtual keyboard (search your Microsoft operating system for “OSK” –On Screen Keyboard) can be used to type in passwords instead of your physical one and can thwart most of the simple keyloggers.

The new MacBook Pro. Wondering why the new MacBook Pro only has USB-C ports?

 Our favourite Spanish ‘Apple engineer’ explains: Mycomputerworks funnies 🙂

 

Another parody video has emerged featuring El Risitas – the first of these appeared last year and this new parody video is just as great! This time it is explaining the reasoning behind the long-awaited MacBook Pro’s lack of ports.

We hope that you love this just as much as we do . . .
