Tech Tip from DoctorLaptop: If you have Cybereason RansomFree malware blocker installed on your computer you should uninstall it, or buy the premium version if you like it. This free version has been discontinued. Another great, free product goes commercial. For a free alternative you can replace it with BitDefender Free Ransomware Protection or Kaspersky Free Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business. If you don’t do regular data backups you should certainly use an anti ransomware program. The 5 mins it takes to install is well worth the small effort if it blocks your data from being encrypted and ransomed back to you for a huge sum. Here are links! https://www.kaspersky.com/anti-ransomware-tool


Chico is looking for his forever home: Chico is a German Wirehaired Pointer (GWP). He is thought to be about 2 yrs of age. He was handed over to Give a Dog a Home Rescue when he proved to be a rubbish guard dog. He is currently in foster near Riogordo but is looking for his forever home.
Chico has a wonderful goofy nature. Good with dogs and other animals. He is house trained and travels well in the car. Loves going for long walks but very settled in the house. An absolute gem of a dog.
An adoption fee will apply which helps cover the costs of castration, vaccines, chip and passport.
If you would like to meet Chico or would like more information please phone 722766109 or
email: carichardweale AT gmail DOT com
