During your computer tune-up, Kevin will verify your computer is fully updated and secure.
Outdated Software & Hardware Device Drivers
Using an unsupported operating system or software application or having outdated hardware device drivers installed not only causes stability and performance issues but can pose security risks to the end-user as well. Continued usage of unsupported hardware and software leaves the end-user vulnerable to computer viruses, malware infestation, ransomware attacks and the possibility of identity theft.
What Is Ransomware?
Ransomware is the encryption of your data files (pictures, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF files, music files) rendering them inaccessible and held hostage until the end-user either agrees to pay the demanded ransom fee or risk the probability that the data will be lost forever.

If your computer were to be rendered unusable, do you have a backup plan where you could easily recover and restore your data files? Unfortunately for some end-users, a data backup is not given much consideration until a disaster has already occurred. Recovering from a potential hard drive failure, theft, or computer virus should not be stressful for the end-user if there is an existing data backup.
How often you should back up is determined by how much time the end-user is willing to spend recreating data files or how much data you are willing to lose. Daily, weekly, or monthly backups should be part of your computer maintenance.
Ways To Back Up Your Data
- USB Flash Drive
- External Hard Drive
- Cloud Backup (different than cloud storage)
