-> Is your Computer at Risk of the WannaCry Ransomware Worm?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

WannaCry, or "WCRY" is an Internet worm that is currently spreading like
wildfire across the Internet. It can instantly infect any Windows machine
connected to the Internet that has not been patched. It has already
infected 230,000 computers in 150 countries and automatically locks
(encrypts) computer files, then demands the owner pay $300 to $600 in
ransom to unlock those files.

ALL Windows machines are at risk! You are especially at risk if:

--> you haven't downloaded and installed the latest Windows Updates
--> your Windows Update won't update
--> Windows Updates constantly report "failure configuring Windows
Updates, reverting changes"
--> you do not have a good backup plan in place

If you need help fixing your Windows Update, or otherwise need a proper
backup plan put in place, Dennis can help with his remote desktop support
service!

Simply send Dennis a message briefly describing your issue using the link
below, and he'll get back to you as soon as possible.

-> Free eBook: Your Complete Guide to Windows Customization

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can create a Windows desktop environment that not only accommodates
your needs, but also looks stunningly beautiful. If you're anything like
me, when you start to use a new computer the first thing you'll do is to
make it 'yours'. Essentially you adapt the computer to fit your needs in a
faster manner. For instance, you might Download Google Chrome, install your
favorite antivirus software and uninstall the things that you don't deem
necessary. Only then do you get to work. It doesn't have to end there. Many
go above and beyond to make their devices feel really 'theirs'. Rooting
your Android device, jailbreaking your iPhone or iTouch, and using custom
themes on your phone is fun - and just the beginning. The ubiquity of
mobile devices has really pulled the strings and started a mini revolution
in this regard. That's fun, but the grand majority of people still use
desktop and laptop devices in order to get their work done. Sure, mobile
devices are becoming increasingly productive tools, but at this point in
time the desktop is still king. But just because your computer is mostly
for work doesn't mean you can't also make it yours. You can use tools that
will customize nearly every aspect of the visual aspect of your Windows
experience. These tools are user friendly and are easy to operate - even by
absolute beginners.

    Infopackets Reader Vema H. writes: " Dear Dennis I just upgraded to
    Windows 10 and one thing that really bothers me is the taskbar
    thumbnail previews. For example, if I place my mouse over top of a task

    disable the taskbar thumbnail previews? It's driving me nuts! " My
