Two Things You Should Know About Fake Microsoft Emails

Please be aware of the increase in Fake Microsoft Emails,these have affected both PC’s and MAC Users.

One of them was was entitled One-step Validation Process and said

“In order to provide absolute security for your Microsoft Outlook account in our system, we recommend that you validate the authenticity of your account to ensure it is not compromised.” It then gave a fake link

Another One was titled De-activation notice from Microsoft and read

” A request to deactivate your Office365 account was made and this request will be processed shortly.

If this was accidental, you are advised to verify your account to cancel the request now ” It then also gave a fake link

Delete these emails – DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS .

If you think that you have been affected please unplug your machine and bring it in to Impress Computers.

The quicker you bring it in the Less Expensive the Repair

Remember – Microsoft will never phone you either – so if you get a call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft – DO NOT GIVE THEM ACCESS TO YOUR PC.

Have a great week and stay away from links

Important Message Regarding Your Data

I wanted to alert you to 2 issues that we had this week, where Companies lost their data and how this could have been avoided.

The first issue was a business that was completely shut down for a week after getting hit with a new version of Crypto. The virus had spread through all of their computers and infected most of their files.

Fortunately the company had backup devices attached to every computer.

Unfortunately on one of the main computers, the backups were also encrypted. Rendering the backup useless.

Intuit did have an offsite copy, but were not able to restore it as the downloads kept failing. They say that it could take 2 weeks to get the data to them.

The second case was a Company that has been advised to only do offsite backups, and when their hard drive crashed they discovered that the offsite backups only contained data from 2006. None of their recent files had been backed up! We are working with a data recovery company, but it could cost over $1000 to get their data back as well as the cost of down time.

Please do not let this happen to you.

Follow these simple steps.

  1. Always know where your data is stored on your hard drive and what your most important files are

 

  1. Alternate your local backups with 2 different drives and double check to ensure that your most recent files are on the local device

 

  1. Keep an offsite backup and regularly check that your most recent files are indeed being backed up.

 

  1. If you need to restore programs and documents find out if your backup program will perform this task.

 

Impress Computers does offer a monitored local and offsite program for $99 per month.

Do not wait one more day.

 

Check your backups now

Is Your PC running Slow? You may just need more RAM

Have you noticed that when your computer or laptop starts up it runs fine, but then seems to slow down the longer you work on it?

It could mean that you simply do not have enough RAM, or memory in your PC.

Follow these steps to check to see how much Ram you have and how much you are using

1. Press CTLT-ALT_Delete keys at the same time

2. Click on Start Task Manager

3. Click on the Performance Tab
This will show you the total memory installed and how much you are using

We recommend having at least 8gb of RAM installed for optimal performance

If you only have 4gb we can do most RAM Upgrades for $29

Not sure what memory you use?
You can use our memory finder or bring it by the store

Boosting Your AutoCad Performance

We have seen a huge improvement in AutoCad performance with the new Quadro M4000 Video Card, especially when coupled with a high performance SSD drive.

The 8Gb M4000 has 1664 CUDA Cores, four 4K Display Port Outputs and totally blows away the older Quadro K4000

The NVIDIA Quadro M4000 is a workstation graphics card targeting computationally demanding applications such as:

Autodesk Maya
Autodesk Inventor
CATIA
SOLIDWORKS
Solid Edge
NVIDIA Iray
Adobe AfterEffects

If you are running any of the above programs and want to improve the efficiency and performance of your AutoCAd Operators then I would highly recommend either upgrading to the new M4000 Video card or getting a New AutoCad Ready Workstation that already has an M4000 installed.

We have sold both the HP and Lenovo AutoCad workstation and have had great results from both units.

We also noticed huge performance increases when using a large high performance SSD drives from Samsung. In the past people used small SSD drives with a larger 7200rpm drive for storage, but ultimate performance is gained from keeping the programs and data on a single drive.
