Computer Updates Are Coming

Courtesy of Invincea

Well, get ready for your computer to go through quite a few systematic updates the next time you go to restart or boot-up your computer. Dozens of updates came out this week from Microsoft and other manufacturers after a tumultuous week for web users. There have been an estimated 120 new malicious viruses, scams, and advanced persistent threats that have been found in just the past few days alone, and experts warn that they do not see a slowdown of this anywhere soon.

Normally, the month of January traditionally sees a decline in computer threats. This has a lot to do with the fact that holiday shopping season is over, and the lucrative info-stealing scams tend to disappear with the end of the holidays. This year, however, the threats remain persistent. Technicians and browser security professionals are already underway developing new software, patches, and updates that will keep your browsing secure, and these undertakings will soon be installed on your computer in the form of software updates. While they may take a while to download, and you may think it is not necessary, with as many threats have been seen already this month, you won't want to take your chances.

In addition to installing all security updates that your computer may prompt you to download, having a quality security software package and malware protection can protect you even further. Invincea is well known and trusted worldwide for its endpoint protection and ability to give clients the most secure web browser possible.

#1 Math Tutor in Vaughan, Ontario

Now that winter holiday vacation time has passed, the kids are getting ready to get back to school and continue their studies, building upon all of the valuable information they learned in the previous semester.

Getting back into the swing of things after an extended period of time off can be difficult, especially for kids and young adults, who are renown for their short attention spans and tendency to procrastinate. The truth of the matter is that the spring semester tends to be more difficult for all students than the fall semester. Tougher subjects and problems are tackled in the second half of the year to try and test students and promote growth. These tougher subjects, coupled with the mid-school year break, can lead to a student struggling in the latter half of the year.
