It’s taken 6 years but Google have finally released a new iOS app "Switch to Android," a counterpart to Apple's "Move to iOS" app for moving important user data from an iPhone to an Android smartphone.https://appleinsider.com/articles/22/04/17/google-takes-six-years-to-copy-apple-in-releasing-switch-to-android-app-for-ios
MBP, mid '09 I think, El Capitan just installed a few days ago. When WRSA - ISC begin a scan, it gives me a "Component Installation Failed" or something to that effect (it fades out quickly). It tells me to contact Help if continues. It does continue. I checked for failed update by forcing an update check: it assures me that I have the latest app. Webroot is on the accept list, on the Mac system Firewall. Ideas?
October 20, 2020How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 UpdateByJohn Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery With organizations moving and adapting from remote to hybrid work scenarios, and essential workers continuing to support us all, it is more important than ever that we continue to provide you with the tools you need to remain protected and productive. In June, we announced Windows 10, version 20H2—and the availability of the first preview build in the Windows Insider Program. We then released a preview build to commercial customers in the Beta and Release Preview Channels for pre-release validation in August. We have continued to make improvements based on the feedback received through these programs and I am pleased to announce that we are beginning the availability of the October 2020 Update. Today’s post offers details on our measured and phased roll out approach, how you can get the update, and information to enable commercial organizations t
Business email compromise is a massively expensive problem. Here are three tips to making sure yours isn’t next to take the bait. Office Hours, our recurring discussion group where we take users' COVID-related questions, continues to generate some really thoughtful submissions. Occasionally, they're so worthwhile we like to take some time to expand on certain topics.If anything deserves a second look in the era of the coronavirus and work-from-home, it’s the challenge of business email compromise. More than $26 BILLION in losses were reported to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) between June 2016 and July 2019 as a result of BEC. That’s almost equal to Cambodia’s entire economic output in 2019.And the IC3 anticipated in a statement in early April that the problem would only be worsened by the epidemic as cybercriminals seek to capitalize on confusion and uncertainty to steal money or valuable data. So when a user asked what can be done to protect against BEC, yeah, we t

Solution?
[b]October 9, 2015 By Vamien McKalin[/b] Recently, Microsoft tech troubleshooter extraordinaire Gov Maharaj was troubleshooting problems for Windows users via The Defrag Show on Microsoft’s [url=https://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/The-Defrag-Show/Defrag-Windows-10-Upgrade-Tips-Microsoft-IoT-Starter-Kits-Windows-To-Go-and-more]Channel 9 website[/url].

Maharaj began to list the programs, and when he reached CCleaner, it was clear from his tone that there’s no love for this program at all.

[i]"There's been talk for a while that Microsoft was going to make some big changes to Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 time frame, making IE 'Spartan' look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox.

Doesnot streaming tv or otherwise make your PC more vulnerable to security risks malware and hacking etc? this has been a surprisingly difficult question for me to find an answer. (maybe because all browsers and servers have an interest in having us do it?). thanks for any guidance
[img]https://www.bleepstatic.com/content/posts/2016/12/29/Chris123NT-GSOD.jpg[/img] Windows 10 Insider builds will now feature a Green Screen of Death (GSOD) instead of the classic Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error page we have all become accustomed to. The change was [url=https://twitter.com/mahoekst/status/813848362285838336]teased[/url] on Twitter by Matthijs Hoekstra, Senior Program Manager for Windows Enterprise Developer Platform, and spotted by a user that goes by the nickname of [url=https://twitter.com/Chris123NT/status/814303929374830592]Chris123NT[/url]. According to Hoekstra, only Windows 10 Insider builds will feature the green error screen, while stable Windows 10 versions will continue to use the classic blue-themed error page.

[b]Who sent the message?[/b] If you were not expecting something from a family member or friend, it may legitimately be from them, or it could be that their account was hijacked and the message is actually being sent by a cybercriminal hoping to infect your computer and/or steal your information. The easy way to discover whether it is actually from your friend or family member is to call, text, or email the sender and ask. Be especially wary of emails from friends and family that a) have no subject line, and b) only contain a link or attachment. This is usually evidence for a hijacked account. Be sure to call the person who purportedly sent you the link to discuss the message with them. If the message and attachments or link come from a company, there is a different set of questions to ask. [b]Do you use this company?[/b] [b][/b] If not it is probably junk, or worse, a scam. If you do use the company, were you expecting to receive an email, or other message

I'm using Firefox 21 on Win XP. When I log into my email account at Verizon I get the following pop up: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/5144iDE9534D9E339ED73.jpg[/img] This doesn't happen with IE-8. Is there a setting on FF to turn this pop up off and is it safe to turn it off?
Microsoft is placing the Xbox One beyond the reach of people without a stable and reliable internet connection. The reason for the move to always-online is to take console gaming to the next level. This will create a new world of hybrid multiplayer development and games that would not be possible on an unconnected console. The perfect example of this new frontier of multiplayer gaming is Bungie's online first-person shooter (FPS), [b][url=http://www.techhive.com/article/2028589/destiny-bungies-next-big-thing.html]Destiny[/url][/b]. The multiplayer advancements will incorporate many of the appealing aspects from Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOs) into a console.

After several demonstrations and rumours of suspected attacks against motor vehicles the industry is finally taking action. [url=http://www.darkreading.com/author-bio.asp?author_id=322]Kelly Jackson Higgins[/url] 7/15/2014 [i]"The auto industry's move toward an ISAC comes on the heels of that of the retail and [url=http://www.darkreading.com/analytics/threat-intelligence/oil-and-natural-gas-industry-forms-isac/d/d-id/1278885]oil and natural gas industries[/url], which recently formed ISACs for their respective industries. While retail and oil & natural gas have faced a wave of real-world threats and attacks on their systems, carmakers for the most part so far have been mostly faced with research demonstrating possible attacks. The heat is on, however, because by 2017, more than 60% of new vehicles will be connected to the Internet, auto industry officials say."[/i] [url=http://www.darkreading.com/analytics/threat-intelligence/automobile-industry-accelera
Fact or Myth: Older, slower antivirus software is better and more thorough than the faster Webroot SecureAnywhere
[b][u]MYTH[/u][/b] [b][u] [/u][/b] Ever since the launch of Webroot SecureAnywhere (WSA), one of the biggest concerns we have seen is that the scans are "too fast to be doing anything effectively." Having worked in support since well before the launch of WSA, I cannot tell you how many times I have seen this topic come up due to a popular misconception that a fast scan is somehow less thorough. [b]To explain why this is a myth rather than a fact, I'll first explain how older, conventional detection models work.[/b] When you first install a program that relies on one of those models, the program first imports tens to hundreds of megabytes of detection definitions from a central server. The installation is slow and cantankerous. If you're on a slower-speed connection, this initial stage can prove insurmountable at times. Believe it or not, some people still use dial-up. There are some parts of the world that unfortunately still don't have a choice.&nb
I have seen a number of tickets in our support system of people being unable to download browsers. In fact its due to to Webroot blocking 3rd party toolbar bundled versions of the browsers. [u][b]Always make sure you are downloading directly from the Vendor and not a 3rd party[/b][/u]. Be aware that the top results in a search page can be paid for advertisments and thus may not be the vendor. In the image below I have done a search using well known search provider. Note that in this case the first result was directly from the vendor (Mozilla) but as you start to go down the search results its gets a bit unclear. To the left of the screen shot I am showing the open file -security warning alert on two versions of Firefox that I have downloaded.

27 August 2014 A fault with Time Warner Cable's network left millions of people cut off from the internet in the US. The firm said the problem affected customers in all 29 of the states in which it offered broadband connections. The problem started in the early hours of Wednesday morning, which will have limited its effect. Many of the company's 11.4 million internet subscribers are now back online but others are continuing to report issues. [url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28955562]Full Article[/url]
We finally have a date! [url=http://mashable.com/2012/07/09/microsoft-windows-8-shipping-october/]Mashable reported[/url] today that Microsoft is set to begin shipments of Windows 8 by the end of October. [i]Microsoft has finally set a date — actually a couple of dates — for delivery of Microsoft [url=http://mashable.com/follow/topics/windows-8]Windows 8[/url] to customers. The eagerly anticipated operating system overhaul is set to “RTM” (Release to Manufacturing) the first week in August and then ship at the end of October.[/i] Are you looking forward to getting your hands on it? Do you think this will motivate people to stay on Windows PCs?
Since I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 I've been unable to use my printer. I've downloaded the Universal Driver for 8.1 from Samsung but it won't install. The installation recognizes my printer but from there it stops and I get a message saying that it can't complete the installation . I've tried disabling my firewall but it doesn't make a difference. Does anyone have suggestions?
