Virus’s are on the rise – This time in PDFs!

We are getting 2-3 calls per week from clients that have caught a virus.  Some of them are VERY nasty (1-2 hours to eradicate the virus).  Make sure you are running a comprehensive internet security program that include anti-virus, spyware and rootkit protection (we currently find that VIPER Premium from Sunbelt is the better mousetrap these days).  Additionally there is a rash of virus’s that are sprung from pdf documents.  In order to be protected from them, you must be running Adobe Reader 9.3 or higher.  If you can install any older copies of Adobe Reader or call me to discuss your situation further.

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month

REMINDER.....  all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.


To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:    888-382-1222.It is the National DO NOT CALL list It will only take a minute of your time. It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.

(Many thanks for Sandra Albert from Adelsohn Consulting for passing on this tip)
