Five Important Videos You Need To Watch

I want to share five important videos from our YouTube Channel. I realize this post will sound self-promoting but I promise you, it’s based on what we are seeing in Remote and hearing over the phone. Why Do I Have A YouTube Channel? There are a number of reasons I have a YouTube Channel. At the top of this list […]

My Computer Was Hacked

We often get phone calls from people telling us “My computer was hacked.” My response normally is, “Not likely!” What Probably Happened Why “My computer was hacked” Is Probably False Despite what you might think, hacking a home computer is rarely high on a hacker’s To-Do list.
