    Microsoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry. 

    Microsoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry MalwareMicrosoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry Malware

    MICROSOFT has just released an emergency software patch for the now “obsolete” Windows XP. The emergency patch should offer protection against the WannaCry malware that recently took down a large portion of the NHS.

    This is a highly unusually move for Microsoft as they stopped supporting and issuing security patches for Widows XP on April 8, 2014.

    Microsoft took this move to try and prevent the ongoing spread of WannaCry as it was using affected machines as platforms to continue the spread of the infection.

    If you have not already done so and you are using Windows XP then you should go straight to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx and download it ASAP.

    If you would like to get rid of malware on your machine, talk to us about prevention or if you would like to upgrade your machine please Contact Us.

    Beware Emails Asking for Payments!

    Scammers have now moved away from sending emails from Nigerian Princes saying they need to move their money abroad. Now they are impersonating peoples Bosses, Wife’s, Husbands or Friends.Beware Emails Requesting Money

    The scammers do a lot of research to make sure the email looks identical to the company’s normal emails and they either fake the email headers or change the email address by substituting a couple of letters (e.g. yourboss@gmail.com to yourboss@gmali.com) so its actually appears to be from them.

    They then say something along the lines that they need to get an urgent payment to a new supplier or the company will loose a big contract. The Employee then sends the money not wanting to question their boss, and all is ok until they are fired for loosing their company’s money.

    There is also a similar email scam where companies are emailed supposedly from one of their suppliers saying their bank details have changed, and all future payments should go to their new bank details. As i am sure you can guess the email is from a scammer and the bank details are theirs and not your suppliers.

    If you ever get an email out of the blue asking for an urgent payment or someone saying their bank details had changed, you should always phone them first on a number you trust (not one in the email) and check that the email is genuine. As its better to appear over zealous than loosing your employers or your own money.

    The BBC have recently done an article talking about these scams, click the below link to check out the full article.

    Error Message – The application was unable to start correctly 0xc0000005Website speed

    Are you getting the Error Message “The application was unable to start correctly 0xc0000005” on your windows PC?

    Well hopefully it is a easy fix, it appears that AVG’s latest update prevents some applications from opening correctly, this can normally be fixed by uninstalling AVG, you may need to do this in safe mode. If you are still having issues then you will need to use the system restore function, go back around a month.

    It you uninstall AVG you should install another form of virus protection ASAP in order to protect you.
