The Importance of Windows Updates (and how to do them!)

The Importance of Windows Updates (and how to do them!)

Many of our customers come to us with issues which directly as a result of failed updates, or lack of updates to their computer.  Windows 10 is supposed to automatically download and install updates to make sure your computer is secure and up to date. But quite often, users simply deny or ignore the update or fail to re-start their computer to complete the update.  Leaving the device plugged in is also essential, as updates can fail if power is lost – which can lead to much bigger problems in the Operating System.

Have you seen the Microsoft Twins Challenge?

Have you seen the Microsoft Twins Challenge?

Microsoft pitted identical twins against each other - one using Office 365 and the other Office 2019, with some very amusing and informative results.

Microsoft’s three newly published videos focus on the main components of the Office product suite: Power Point, Word and Excel and use identical twins to liven things up. The new ad campaign was launched by Microsoft to basically promote Office 365 over Office 2019 - bashing its traditional Office suite to promote the subscriptions based 365 service.

So, what does this mean? For Microsoft, it means that it is moving from being a product based company to being a service based company - they no longer want to sell licenses on a CD, DVD, or via download. Instead, Microsoft (just like Netflix) wants you to rent a service indefinitely….and it’s most-definitely worth a look!

Right-Click is a Microsoft Silver Cloud Partner and can help you with your move to 365.

Microsoft 365 also offers service subscriptions for e-mail and social networking services through hosted versions of Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, SharePoint and Office Online. Learn more or talk to us today on (01) 4759681

7 Scams to be aware of (and why we think Conor Pope is God!)

7 Scams to be aware of (and why we think Conor Pope is God!)

We think this is a really great article from Conor Pope in this morning's Irish Times - it's worth taking time out to look at his synopsis of the most common scams listed below, but in addition we advise you take on board the following advice: 

  • Always read your emails carefully (watching you for tell tell tale grammatical errors, spelling mistakes) 

  • Make a habit of hovering (never click) over the sender's details as it can reveal bogus email addresses when you take a closer look

  • Never give details to unsolicited calls from Microsoft, your bank or any company who proclaims that your financial or email accounts are in danger

  • We strongly advise that organisations don't put details of their financial or accounts staff on their company website as were have seen a huge increase in personalised targeting of such staff. 

  • And finally, watch out for fake Office 365 notification emails, especially links to fake 365 websites or log on screens that just that pop up on your computer

Why should you activate two factor authentication…now!

Why should you activate two factor authentication…now!

Why should you activate two factor authentication…now! If there’s one account that’s worth protecting above all others, it’s your email. Not only because it contains your private conversations and data, but because it serves as a gateway to your other online accounts and other users. Two-factor authentication has long been used by the business world to control access to sensitive systems and data – but now with increased levels of phishing and scammers trying to gain access to customer accounts, two factor authentication is becoming essential even on the most basic personal accounts.
