Security Vulnerabilities: Is it time for a new computer?
Intel announced in April that they are stopping work on microcode updates for certain older processors in regards to Spectre Variant 2 vulnerabilities. While that likely doesn’t mean much to most people, it does pose an interesting dilemma. Next, even though some older computers can run Windows 10, there could[...]
Free Diagnostics and our Core Values: our 2¢ worth.

How to tell if you have a Computer Virus
