National IT Services

For companies operating in this day and age, it is of the utmost importance that they have in their employ at least one skilled IT professional; not only do they make sure that your computers are always in tip-top shape, they also ensure that the data within them are always kept safe from unauthorized access. Unfortunately, smaller companies like yours do not have the time or resources to go through all of the necessary hiring procedures. This is why national IT services are heaven-sent; now you can get quality IT personnel without all the usual hassles attached to them.

For one thing, you do not have to go through all the hardships of placing an ad in the newspapers and job hunting websites and then wait for the applicants to contact you. When you get the help of nationwide IT services you will immediately get a list of viable candidates. Most of the reliable IT service providers already have a deep pool of possible applicants for your company.

You also do not have to worry about screening the applicants yourself. If no one in your current staff is knowledgeable enough about IT to actually interview and screen eligible applicants, then it is best that you get in touch with an agency instead. With their help, you are almost guaranteed to get the best kind of IT professional your company needs; you do not have to worry about choosing an inept applicant because the agency will sift through the muck to find the gem. These companies make it their business to find the best IT personnel so you don’t have to.

Now, if you are not really looking for a permanent member of your staff, multi-nation IT services can still be of help. You can actually hire an IT professional for just a limited amount of time. If your company is still in the start-up stages, you may not have enough in your coffers to afford paying the salary of a computer technician or network administrator, then hiring one for three months at a time is perfect; not only will you get the kind of tech support your company needs, you will also save thousands of dollars.

The great thing about having a business these days is that you can use computers to make every aspect of your daily operations much easier. And with the help of IT services, you can also make sure that your very important computers are kept secure and in good working condition.

There are some computer services that you might not have even heard of that you may actually need, and one of them is data recovery. It is not that uncommon for people to mistakenly delete important files from their computers even IT professionals do it sometimes. Do not fret because even if you think you have erased precious data from your hard drive they can still be recovered if you have the help of professionals.

You might think that recovering deleted files is a piece of cake; all you need to do is go to the Recycle Bin and restore the deleted item, but what if you emptied your Recycle Bin by mistake? Some people would just resign to their fate and accept the fact that the data is gone forever, and this can be quite hard if the files are really important, like your wedding photos, videos of your baby’s first steps, or files that you use for work. Fortunately for you, there is still hope that you can completely recover your lost files, but it is not that simple.

When you “completely” delete a file from your computer, it is technically still there in your hard drive. Although they are nowhere to be seen in your computer’s file manager, the bits and pieces of the deleted files are still ingrained in the hard drive, you just need to piece them back together again. It might sound easy, but if you do not really know what you are doing then you not only risk not being able to recover the lost file, you might also render your computer inoperable. So to prevent hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage to your PC, you should just let the professionals handle the deleted files recovery.

Data recovery specialists can almost guarantee (there is a slight chance that the files are lost forever) that you will be able to retrieve the important files that you thought was gone and never to return. They will be using sophisticated programs and tools that will safely retrieve any accidentally deleted items in your computer without compromising the safety of your system.

The next time you mistakenly delete important computer files, do not panic, there is still a way for you to get them back. All you need to do is get in touch with data recovery experts and let them take care of things for you.

Information has now been released that a hacker used malware techniques to steal thousands of Facebook accounts in February, then selling them in bulk on the black market. Verisign’s iDefense director announced that the act is one of many that are taking place across the US. Individuals steal log-in data for Facebook accounts by using malware techniques that track computer keystrokes, and phishing techniques that make Facebook users think they are logging in on an actual Facebook website that is a convincing fake.

World Domination via Facebook Malware

World Domination via Facebook Malware

The crime is only the first step in a master plan of social network domination. The stolen Facebook accounts can be used to send fraudulent messages to the user’s friends, spread harmful links, and view sensitive information such as birthdates and home addresses which can be used toward identity theft. Thus, if you are linked to any of the thousands of accounts that were stolen, you may be at risk.

To battle malware attacks on your laptop computer or desktop computer, you should have an updated version of a good anti-virus and anti-spyware program. Anti-spyware software is not necessarily invincible, so if you end up in the market for a computer repair company, call A+ Mobile PC Doctors, the experts in Boston computer repair, at 1-617-723-1986. Our insured technicians offer onsite computer repair and remote desktop PC repair services, virus removal, spyware removal, and more — see our website for a full list of computer repair services.

I’m hoping you don’t have an account on Blippy.com, because if you do you’re in danger of having your credit card information stolen. Blippy.com is a new social networking site for online shopping that isn’t doing a very good job of keeping its customers’ credit card numbers and names under wraps. Equals identity theft. Case in point, this Google search results screenshot courtesy of Gizmodo.com:

Yep, Nate Marshall and Bradd Dantuma should probably consider dumping all of the funds out of their debit card accounts because their full names and credit card numbers are now on the web for all to see. Most of the tech websites that are buzzing about Blippy.com recommend that if you DO have a Blippy account, disable it immediately.

On that note, here are some computer security tips from A+ Mobile PC Doctors, an onsite computer repair company in Boston that has been the area’s top source for efficient computer repair services in Boston since 2002.

  • Make sure all your computer security programs are up-to-date.
  • When accessing public wifi, DON’T go shopping or log into your online banking account!
  • Don’t copy-paste passwords or other sensitive information. It’s easy for websites to steal the information you’ve left on your clipboard. Find out how to disable this on Internet Explorer.
