February 2012 Newsletter

Hope you all had a nice festive season and are now ready for the year ahead. Most of you will have been back in the office for a couple of weeks so it’s a perfect time for you to have a look at and evaluate your current computer/environment setup.

This month I’m looking at Anti-Virus applications, so make sure you are protected (with prices starting from free there’s no excuse not to be).

Tech Updates

Windows 8 could be here as early as October this year, so keep an eye on our Blog as we are currently evaluating the Developers Preview version of Windows 8 so we’ll post some comments and screenshots.

Just In Tech now has a Remote Access tool that allows us to work on your computer remotely.  If you can access the internet we can fix most issues on the spot.

Don’t miss out on high speed fibre internet connections to your office in Napier or Hastings as it’s more affordable than you think, with prices starting at $180 per month. Contact us to discuss.

Monthly Focus – Anti Virus Applications

A good Anti-Virus is essential but it need not cost you the earth or for that matter anything! Here’s a couple that I recommend, one is free and the other is a paid service.

Microsoft Security
Essentials

Microsoft now provides a free Anti-Virus program that is free for personal use and for businesses with less than 10 computers for life.

  • Based on the same technology as used in Microsoft’s enterprise level security platform.
  • Easy to use with fully automatic updates.
  • Light weight so ideal for older computers or netbooks.
  • Use with the built in firewall included in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 for complete protection

Price: Free for personal or business use
(up to 10 PCs)

Kaspersky® Internet
Security 2012

Kaspersky® Internet Security 2012 offers a more comprehensive approach to protecting your
computer including:

  • Superior scanning technology – Viruses,
    Malware, Spam
  • Built in Firewall to protect against hackers.
  • Kaspersky URL Advisor – This lets you
    know if a website you are browsing contains any potential security threats.
  • Parental Control – Block sites and applications such as Instant Messengers from been used on the computer.

Price: $62.70 – Currently two years for the price of one.
