DoctorLaptop’s Tips #78
-Windows 10 v1803 support ends on November 12. That means no more security updates. You won’t want to do any banking, shopping or emails on a unit not receiving security updates. To check your version type WINVER in the search box, then click on WINVER at the top of the search results box. An info box will open with your version info. You should be on v1903. If you are on v1809 you are still OK but should update to v1903 soon.
If you are on v1803 or earlier you need to update asap. To to so, make sure you are on a good quality internet connection, updating on a campo WiMax connection doesn’t always work. Open Settings/Updates and click “Check for updates”. Let it install all updates it finds, then restart computer. Repeat this updating procedure until you get the No More Updates Available message. If this process has not got you caught up to v1903 then you have an Updater problem of some sort. Necessary prerequisites for your next update may be missing. You may be able to fix this by running a “Error Check” on your System partition, then retry updating.
If that fails, or is above your user level, bring it in for a Maintenance Servicing, updating everything to current is part of the service.
-Ransomware Returns to Southern Spain. A hacker has taken over the computer system of the southern Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera (by encrypting the contents. -Ed.) and is demanding a ransom paid in bitcoin to unlock it, local officials said Friday. The cyber attack, which has caused outages of services offered through the city’s website, began on Tuesday night, a municipal spokesman told AFP.
Never pay ransom to hackers. Get you computer to a computer service pro asap. Many versions of ransomware encryption can be undone with special tools within the 48 hrs following infection. Source: https://www.thelocal.es/20191004/hacker-seeking-bitcoin-ransom-hits-spanish-citys-computer-sytem
