I would like to thank RHCC for all their help with my computer. When I had a problem they were quick, courteous and extremely helpful, managing to restore all my data without loss and provide advice on the purchase of a new machine.
Being a single female, I am always a little wary of inviting strangers into my home, but I had nothing to worry about here, and the gentleman that visited always spoke in plain and simple English to me, so as not to confuse with computer jargon that I really do not understand.

Five Stars!

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my PC. When you took the hard drive away with you to fix I was convinced that I was going to lose all my data and that this was going to be a rather time-consuming and very costly job, which you proved to be false.
The PC runs very well now and I appreciate all the hard work and suggestions you have given me, and after having the spyware software installed this has made a big difference to us, and I believe we are more conscious when we are surfing the net.
I will be recommending you to anyone that needs advice or work done to their own computers.
Thank you again for the hard work and the efficient manner it was dealt with.

Personally, I will not be using any other service from now on and I am happy to recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
Thank you again.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Lost one of your passwords? We can, of course, help get it back! Whether it's carrying out the verification process or your old password isn't playing ball, call today. Firstly, my advice is to write all your passwords down in a little book. And then, hide the book away! Indeed, nobody's memory is foolproof and all the passwords and what they are for is confusing if you don't have a system! Of course, passwords can be a real pain for lots of people. By the same token, everything we do online is controlled by them! However, they are designed to make your information safe. They are also a necessary evil.

Also, in the linked article there are a few tips on spotting fake websites and spoof emails too. See Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online for the full article

Upgrades

We can do all sorts of Hardware and Software upgrades to your computer. Firstly, you might be wondering how to increase your computer speed or asking yourself how to make my laptop faster? Indeed, increasing your computer performance can be achieved with a solid-state drive. Of course, you might be wondering if it is worth it. Below, is a video I made showing an upgrade to Windows 10 with a Solid State Drive upgrade. By combining an Upgrade to Windows 10 together with a Solid State Drive Upgrade, we gave the old PC in the video a new lease of life! Not to mention, quite a speed boost! Call Computer Repairs in Lewes today for a free no-obligation quote!

How do I speed up my machine By adding an SSD

Wifi and Networking

Data Recovery

Malware and Virus Removal

Do you have pop-ups when browsing the Internet? Are you finding your computer slowing down? It may be Malware or a Virus to blame. Furthermore, it is very easy to pick up a virus these days. An accidental keypress, as well as an accidental mouse click, can lead to no end of problems. Similarly, pop-ups on your computer can be extremely annoying. Because they can fill the screen and stop you seeing what you are doing! Also, as part of our service, we can install a pop-up blocker.

This, potentially, can stop up to 90% of all adverts. If you are looking for Computer Repairs in Lewes with Malware and Virus removal, we can fix it.

Virus and Malware Removal

New Computers

All the jargon can be extremely confusing when buying a new PC! Firstly, Just what is RAM? Secondly, how many gigabytes do I need? Also, What type of CPU is best for me? We can, of course, take the hassle and confusion out of it.  Indeed, our New-Computer Service is an extremely popular option.

How it works;

Firstly, we would make a mutually convenient appointment and come to you to discuss your needs and budget.

Then, we would find something at a great price and you can order it.

Finally, we pop in and set it up for you!

Firstly, you are only charged the time it takes to set it up. Also, we will transfer all your old photos, documents and files from your old computer to the new one. Call Computer Repairs in Lewes to discuss your requirements today!

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – One of the pains of the modern world is passwords. However, they are very necessary, unfortunately! Passwords keep us safe and the more complicated the password the safer the thing it is protecting is. However, there is a huge caveat with this statement. Even the most complicated password is useless if you tell someone.

But I wouldn’t tell anyone my password, I hear you cry! Yes, in normal situations, I.e somebody stops you in the street and says ‘ give me your password’ you wouldn’t.

Computer repairs in your area

However, if you go to a website and put in your password, and it’s an unfriendly website, dressed up to look like a legitimate website, a spoof website, you’ve just given your password away.

Social Engineering

If you’ve answered an email saying that you need to go to a company website to reenter your password because you’ve been locked out of your account, are you sure you really want to click on the link in the email? These ways of gaining somebodies password are known as social engineering. It’s getting you to give away your password. There is a good article on the BBC website that talks about Social engineering. These are the most common ways. Another way to gain a password is through a keystroke logger. It’s a little program or virus that makes a note of all your presses on the keyboard and sends it to the enemy or ‘hacker’.

Rarely, it is the classic Hollywood image of the person hunched over a keyboard running a program that tries lots of different combinations to gain access to something.

A selection of ‘Traditional Hacker’ Photos – taken from Google Images

Another trick is to use social media posts and quizzes. It’s a big subject so it has its own post. See How to NOT give away your personal data on social media.

As a little primer for this beginner’s guide to Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online, some common terms I have used are browser and address bar. Firstly, let me explain those.

Browser

This is what you view the ‘Internet’ on. It’s a little program that lets you see the internet. Whether it is Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox or one of the others. The logos you click on look a bit like this;

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Address Bar

This is the line on top of your browser where the website address you are currently on appears. You can type in this line, click in it to get the flashing I Beam or cursor, in it. Indeed, if you know the website address you are looking for you can type in this line and not have to go through a search engine to find it. See the picture below for where it is. It’s the bit that is highlighted in yellow

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Also, take note of the little padlock, I’ll mention that later. Knowing these terms, if you don’t already, will help you with the words below.

Ok, let’s run through how to avoid scams and help you with Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Spoof websites

When going to a website always check in the address bar that it is the correct website. See the image below for the address bar. If it is different from what you expect to see, don’t go there!

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – from google images

Here I’ve used pictures from google. The red around the address bar is showing the double ‘N’ in amazon. You wouldn’t get me to go to these websites in real life! For a full explanation see Wiki – Spoof Website. Also, check for the little padlock in the address bar, it means the website has a certain level of encryption. This and the trick below are an example of Phishing. Phishing is basically a fraudulent attempt to gain access to your data.

Spoof emails

This is different from the email approach. In the first place, never click on a link in an email. Never. Even if you think it might be genuine. If you are unsure if you have been locked out of your account, type the company web address directly in your browser.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Above, I’m using an example here from my personal email. It’s an email from, allegedly, PayPal.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

If I hover (but do not click) over the ‘check your account’ bit, the address it is going to go to appears in the bottom left corner

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

And that is definitely not a PayPal address! As I said, if you are unsure, type the Web address of the company in question into your browser and see if you have login issues. Another thing to look out for is spelling and grammar in the email. ‘Paypal ask to update your account’ is not great English!

Number Crunching

This is the more traditional Hollywood approach. However, it is rarer than the others, because it’s much easier to get someone to give you their password information in one of the above methods. For a more complete definition of hacking, see here – Hacking – Wikipedia.

 

Also, these days there are those annoying captchas. Sometimes it’s pictures and sometimes it is some letters written funny. This is to prove you are human. A computer program has difficulty identifying numbers or pictures. The Captchas may be annoying but they are a useful security feature…

captcha
captcha

 

 

A reason these exist is to stop the number-crunching brigade. It’s very difficult to program an automated system to recognise pictures. Although not impossible, it’s not readily available to most people.

Safe Passwords

The major rule is don’t use the same password for everything. Use Capital and lower case letters and numbers and special characters if you can.

Write them down

Contrary to the advice given a few years ago, the best thing is to write them down in a little book. But don’t keep the book next to your computer! And certainly don’t use post-it notes and put them all over your monitor – If you get burgled you’ll be in trouble. Indeed, resetting peoples passwords where they have been forgotten is one of the most common problems people call me about.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – Summary

Mainly, it is just being wary online. Yes, write your complicated passwords down in a little book but don’t keep that next to the computer. If you get one of the emails and you’re not sure, phone the company they purport to be on the phone number on the bill to check. Also, in your pursuit of online safety, it’s worth being aware of scam calls. Read more about How to deal with scam calls here. Let’s be safe out there!

I have had no further problems with my PC and was so relieved that you managed to recover so much of my data. To top it all off I was pleasantly surprised by how reasonable the bill was.
Personally, I will not be using any other service from now on and I am happy to recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
Thank you again.

Upgrades

We perform all sorts of Hardware and Software upgrades for your computer. You might be wondering how to increase your computer speed or asking yourself how can I make my laptop faster? Increasing your computer performance can be achieved with a solid-state drive. Below is a video showing an upgrade to Windows 10 with Solid State Drive Upgrades. By combining an Upgrade to Windows 10 and a Solid State Drive Upgrade we gave the old computer in the video a new lease of life and a huge speed boost!

SSD - Solid State Drive

Ok, so what are the differences?

The Solid-State Drive is the same size as an old laptop hard drive. A desktop hard drive is larger. A desktop hard drive also spins faster. At 7200 rpm (revolutions per minute) to be exact. A laptop Hard Drive spins at 5400 rpm. A solid-state drive does not spin. It has no moving parts. Think of it as a big memory stick. Also, because it has no moving parts there is less to go wrong with it! Because the old style hard drives rotated, and an arm read the data of it, they are not as quick. And yes, old-style laptop hard drives are slower because they don't rotate as quickly.

Clean Up and Servicing

Imagine your computer to be a bit like a small child - it doesn't clean up after itself! Most computers are full of temporary files and need a bit of TLC to keep them running smoothly. Defragmentation, or optimisation as the later version of Windows call it now is important. For more information on this service see Clean Up and Servicing.

Password Issues

Lost your password or the machine won't accept it? We can help recover it!  My personal advice has always been to write all your passwords down in a book. And hide the book away! Don't keep it next to the computer. Nobody’s memory is perfect and all the passwords and what they are for is a real headache to remember! However, they are designed to make your information safe and we all have to use them.

  • Then, we would find a PC or Laptop at a great price for you to order.
  • Finally, we set it up!

Upgrade to Windows 10

As mentioned earlier under upgrades but I thought I'd mention it again as it is in a lot of peoples minds at the moment. If you are running Windows 7, support for it is running out in January 2020. It will still function after this date. What is stopping are security updates. Microsoft recommends updating to Windows 10 to lessen any risk of your system being compromised. A lot of people are wary of Windows 10 for a number of reasons. Most of this is because, as human beings, we don't like change!  I have written more on this, as it deserved its own article here, Upgrade to Windows 10.
