I do hope that everyone is well and taking excellent photos
I have been off line for sometime to ensure that I could not be responsible for sending you a virus. Nothing is certain, “except death and taxes” but I have done everything I can to make certain my machine is squeeky clean. To make this possible I backed up all my photos to three hard drives. One of these drives is kept in a different location and is not connected to the internet. I have a cloud service which has all my photos. I scanned my computer with Microsofts own anti virus program (OK but not the best). I scanned with Kaspersky Total Security which was rated the best by Which and with Malwarebytes which is a free program which checks areas that even Kaspersky does not reach. I have also forced my computer to upgrade to “The Windows 10 Creators Update” so every possible avenue has been covered, I hope.
Being as this is a major upgrade I also recreated my Recovery Drive. If you don’t know about the recovery drive it is a more than 4GB flash drive which can help you troubleshoot and fix problems with your PC even if it won’t start. If you have not made one it is a very good idea. If you want to make one and don’t know how to, then give me a ring and I will try to talk you through it.
I do hope that the last few weeks has been a wakeup call for many people, it would be a terrible thing to loose all my photos, all those memories going back to the beginning of the last century. Food for thought?
