EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! PLEASE SHARE:

This is yet another computer scam making the rounds using your telephone and a healthy dose of fear. Here's how it works:

*You will receive an unsolicited phone call from Microsoft, or MSN, or your cable company, or whoever and you are to told you have a serious virus issue with your computer and the offer to fix the problem.

*Often if you question them in the least you are given the hard sell. This often includes possible law enforcement issues if the viruses/issues are not resolved at once.

*The caller will sometimes have you look at your Events Viewer in Windows. The Event View is always full of messages even in virus free computers, but the caller will try to convince you there are dangerous and serious issues.

*Having your trust they will remote into your computer claiming to know how to fix your issues.

*Finally they will ask for your credit card to download software to fix the issues.

In reality what they have done is insert a virus of their own to control your computer whenever they want, taken your credit card information, and downloading malware to your computer. Here's what you need to know:

*MSN, Microsoft, AOL, IRS, FBI, your cable company, ect will not call you about your viruses! Never.

*If you get an unsolicited call from anyone about viruses on your computer HANG UP!

*MSN, Microsoft, AOL, IRS, FBI, your cable company, ect will not email you about your viruses.

*Do not give out password(s) to ANYONE in a phone call or email.


If you have any questions about scams such as these or believe you may have fallen victim to one of these scams please feel free to leave us a message or call us at 208-473-2373. Please feel free to share this tip with your family and friends, better yet remind them to like Geek On A Scooter Fixin’ Your Computer on Facebook to receive these tips and special offers directly.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY HARD-DRIVE IS GOING BAD & OTHER DATA BACKUP TIPS:

1. If your hard-drive desktop or laptop sounds louder while you are booting or opening a large program that may be resource intensive. You will notice a clicking may not be loud but if it sounds a lot louder than when you bought the computer it might be time to replace the hard-drive.

Examples of when to listen to your computer:
Computer is starting up or booting
Norton is running a scan
Opening Outlook
Quickbooks
etc...

2. Fans will sometimes get loud but those don't cost much to replace and the sound is different. Warning power supply and processor fans are essential so don't ignore them if they are sounding rough or off balance.

3. Most importantly have several backups of your data (Docs/Pics/Music/Outlook/Quickbooks). Flash drives, DVDs, or external drives are great. Please note that DVD's are susceptible to scratches. External drives have moving parts so don't bang them around especially while powered on, also have them plugged into power surge protection if they require external power. Flash drives are great, but the more you plug them in and pull them out you wear down the contacts in the USB flash drive. Flash drives are also susceptible to static electricity and magnets (pockets and car alarm dongles can affect flash drives.)

4. Plugging in a flash drive or external drive to another PC can transfer viruses so sharing backups between computers should be done cautiously. Last thing you want to do is move viruses from your old computer to the new computer you just purchased.

5. Online backups are not perfect, they advertise they back up your total system which is not true. First question you should ask them "Do you virus scan the backups prior to restoring the documents to a clients system?". We don't know of any that currently do that, also they only back up folders that you tell them to. So if you just added a new program to your computer, it is highly doubtful that they have backed up the data folder you will need to restore the program after a reload of windows. VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER: You have to tell the on-line back up companies software which specific folders you want to back up.

P.S. We will virus scan your data prior to restoring it, we feel it would be immoral to restore possible infected data back to a computer we just fixed.

6. We do like using our Google docs/Gmail docs to backup important files like software or backups of important files. Just be sure to not use your password to log in to these accounts using a unknown or untrustworthy computers (who knows what is on that computer at the library). Do not share this password and be sure to make sure these files are private, NOT PUBLIC. You can share the files, but be very careful before doing so. You should trust the person/people you are sharing with and make sure they know they should not share the files with out your permission. All it takes is one bad egg to cause problems at home or work. You get a gig of space available free with your Gmail account just for documents.

7. Other ways we have backed up files online for free:
Attach the file under 25 mbs to an email then save it to drafts or another folder, with Gmail you get 7.5 gigs of space in your email acct for free. You can purchase more space from Google, they can give you those specifics.

Please share this with your friends it may save their family pictures or their family business.
