New Year's Tech Tip

Start the new year off right by protecting your important pictures, videos, music and documents with a fresh backup. Google Drive and Dropbox are great examples of storing your files in the cloud or you can make a physical copy of your data to a USB flash drive or an external hard drive. For maintenance, we recommend taking a backup at least once per week. If you would like help, VirtualTech happily provides Data Backup Services. 

Have a Happy Safe New Year!

The new update for Internet Explorer 10 is having a few issues playing nice with AOL. Same goes for Mozilla Firefox and Yahoo.

If you are having trouble with these email hosts, you might want to try using another browser, like Chrome.

Can a computer get damaged if it gets too cold?

Yes, taking a computer that has been in a cold temperature to a warmer temperature, can cause condensation within the computer, which can cause damage. 

To help prevent this situation from occurring, we suggest letting the computer remain off for a few minutes before turning it on.

A few good Tips to remember when Traveling with your Computer:


1. Use your own devices rather than using computers at library's or cafe's.

2. Connect to a VPN when traveling for business to get a secure, encrypted and anonymous connection.

3. Never do your online banking while using a free/open or ad-hoc wifi connection.

Have a Secure Experience! Enjoy Your Trip!

NEW in STOCK!!

Wireless USB Nano Receivers 
150 Mbps 
2.4 GHz 
Only $15.00 incl tax!

Before nano wireless receivers came out, USB receivers were about the size of a common USB flash drive. They stuck out of the side of a laptop's USB port, begging to be broken off. Nano wireless receivers, on the other hand, are designed to be left in the laptop's port. They are so small that they can rest nearly flush with the side of the laptop. This, according to the manufacturers, lets you pack your laptop in its case without worrying about the receiver damaging the USB port.

Twas the night before Midnight Madness
and all thru the house
Every creature was stirring
even my Spouse!
The banners were hung
with Red, White and Blue
in hopes that a Party would soon ensue!
The Town will soon be nestled in their beds
with visions of Midnight Madness dancing in their heads!

IE Bug Report

Once in a while, we come across a quirky little bug that lives within a program. This Bug Report is to alert those using Internet Explorer as their browser. Be careful when downloading apps. This is what can happen: you think you are downloading the app of choice, but actually many toolbars and other apps may be bundled and downloading at the same time which makes Internet Explorer crash. There is usually a box that pops up with the option to uncheck these additional add on's.
