Tech Tip 41: 7 Things IT Guys Don’t Tell You!

Posted on: September 18, 2009


1. Turn it off, Turn it back on. “Nine times out of ten, rebooting your computer will solve the problem” – Aaron Schildkraut.

2. Make sure you have current anti-virus and anti-spyware protection, and set it to update at least once a day and run a full-system scan at least once a week.

3. Nothing comes for free. Downloading free music, movies and games from file-sharing sites can open holes in your system for others to exploit. Play it safe and use established services like Rhapsody, iTunes and Netflix.

4. Public Wi-Fi is public. If you don’t have a compelling reason to check your e-mail or bank account while sipping a latte at the mall, don’t do it. While you’re on a public network, even one that’s encrypted, a nearby hacker can capture your passwords.

5. Give your baby a rest. Turning off your computer when it’s not in use saves energy and clears out the RAM, or temporary memory, which would otherwise slow down your machine over time.

6. If you want to see less of tech support guys, get a Mac!

7. If you don’t understand me, I’m not doing my job. Confusing tech jargon is a sign of insecurity, not intelligence.
