What Did I Talk About On Radio W/C 12th May – Updated

Don’t Install Mystery Programs

I still find clients installing ” crapware ‘ on their computers in the forlorn hope that they will provide an avenue for an improved computing experience.

This is never the case as they will undoubtedly , disappoint and in most cases infect the computer with malicious software that cannot be removed through add-remove programs.

In some cases they will actually pay for these programs and that means that they will undoubtedly have to cancel that credit card.

Programs such as the ones listed below and ones that sound very similar are usually bogus and will cause more harm than good.

  • Driver Update
  • Driver Restore
  • System Tweak
  • Fast Clean Pro
  • PC Cleaner
  • Speed Up My PC
  • Backup My PC

iOS Apps Install Problems

If you have a device which has apps that were bought under an Apple ID that was no longer used or by a different user with their Apple details ( such as your children ), you may have trouble when updating these apps.

They will ask for the users Apple ID that was used to install and download in the first place .

You need to delete the app than reinstall under your Apple ID.

Google Maps Update

On Android devices you can now store maps offline for access later when you don’t have internet access.
