Windows 8.1 Introduction

Windows-8.1-Logo
 

As someone who installs and upgrades computers for small businesses, I have heard many questions regarding the new Windows operating system. The user interface is different from what Windows 7 or Vista users expect, so it can be unnerving and inconvenient for some people to learn. Tablet and smartphone users have some sort of experience with the app or card style interface, but those who are not as knowledgeable in this area may have trouble adapting. For that reason, I have put together a short and simple look at Windows 8.1. Microsoft has a lot of nice resources too, and I will be linking to them throughout this blog.

Critical Internet Explorer Security Patch Released - Update Required

Windows Update Circled
 

Most likely, you have heard some news about the recent security concerns regarding Internet Explorer. You usually don't hear this much talk about most software bugs, but this one is quite serious. There are a lot of people who use IE, and all those users are extremely vulnerable. Last week, the Department of Homeland Security warned against using IE until the bug was fixed. For those who want all the details, Microsoft has posted an official report: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/library/security/2963983. The main thing you should know is that someone could remotely execute arbitrary code when you view a well-crafted web page or email. Eventually, this can lead to your entire system being compromised. That means all your information can be easily stolen if your system is successfully attacked.
