It is Christmas morning in the US and hopefully Santa has made his delivery at your house. Some of those deliveries may be electronic in nature. Under our tree there are 2 new laptops for grandchildren. The laptops have been “pre-delivered” as this grandma has purchased anti-virus and installed, has removed all of the bloat ware from them and taken care of the Windows Updates and security setup. The machines are ready for delivery. I hope that those of you that have received new electronic toys under the tree will take the time to secure and protect them if you haven’t already. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 6 little elves (grandchildren) so that we can begin our Christmas celebration.
A little later I am going to do a diary that overviews the lessons that I have learned in the last few months as I have dealt with customers infected computers. Stay tuned.
