Special #2
I know this deal won't be for everyone just based on price alone.  However, anytime I can save you $65 off the price on HP's own website, I feel I should pass that on to you.
This is a 14" HP Elitebook with an Intel i5 processor - the newest generation (7th).  It has 8GB of RAM and a 256 Solid State Drive which makes it an extremely fast laptop.  It comes with Windows 10 Pro and has a battery with a maximum time between charges of 15.25 hours.  Even filled with lots of features, this computer weighs only 3.26 lbs which makes it great for carrying from place to place.  (You can see all the specs by clicking HERE.)
On the HP site, this unit sells for $1,099.  We have limited numbers of this model at $1034 but they won't be around forever at this price.  Please call us at 772-408-4425 to purchase today!

Question of the Week

Question:  "I read last week that thousands of computers were infected with ransomware. Is my computer at risk?"

Answer:  As of the last report, 140,000 computers were infected with the "WannaCry" ransomware. This ransomware infected computers in 99 different countries. (Read more about it HERE.)

You may recall from previous Question of the Week emails, that ransomware is Malware which encrypts a computer's files and demands money if you want to get the files back.  You may also recall that the FBI (and we agree) says you should never pay the ransom.

Is our customer who asked this question at risk?  Are you at risk? Maybe.  Look over this checklist and see if your computer might be at risk.

A) The "WannaCry" ransomware infected a lot of computers running Windows XP - an operating system which hasn't had security updates in years.  Have you removed your old Windows XP computer from the Internet?  (If you haven't, your computer is highly at risk!  This also applies to Windows Vista machines.)

B) Other computers infected were not being updated regularly.  Microsoft patched their operating systems in March and that patch prevents the "WannaCry" ransomware from infecting a computer.  Are you keeping your computer up-to-date?

C) Some computers had expired anti-virus software and hadn't received updates which would have prevented the infection.  The most current versions of Vipre, BitDefender and Malwarebytes Pro all blocked the ransomware.  Are you using one of these products and is it up-to-date?

D) Some computers had external drive backups plugged in at the time and the data on those backups was also encrypted.  Are you using online backup of your data files?

If you answered "No" to one or more of questions A-D, your computer is at risk.  Correct your situation now before it's too late.  (Questions as to how to do that?  Just call us at 772-408-4425 or respond to this email.)
