Why am I getting so much SPAM?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button


Lately, there seems to have been an uptick in SPAM being received by ourselves and some of our clients. It is a common complaint for users of both residential and business No-Spamcomputer systems. Unfortunately, even with many new regulations put in place, SPAM is on the rise.

Spam is like the junk mail you get through regular mail. Marketers are trying to sell you products and services. Email is less expensive to send, so they send a lot of it. Marketers create spam mailing lists in a variety of ways, including:
•    Scanning online discussion groups for email addresses
•    Buying or stealing Internet mailing lists
•    Searching the web for email addresses
•    Randomly guessing email addresses

Is Your IT Guy a Trusted Advisor?

it-consultantMany times we are hired by a client after they have dealt with a computer support technician or IT company that has been difficult to work with. The previous IT consultant would talk in "geek speak" and would become visibly irritated at the client's inability to understand the technical terminology.

 At Enfuse Technology Solutions, we believe your IT consultant should be a trusted advisor you can come to when you have problems or questions with your technology.

5 Ways to Get Your Computer Ready for the New Year

The New Year is a great time to start using your computer in a safer and more efficient way. Get 2013 off to a great start with these quick tips.

1) Clean Out the Dust

Dust collects on components inside the computer.  Desktops and laptops need to be cleaned out periodically to keep them from running too hot.  When computers get too hot, they start doing things like shutting down randomly, failing, and not starting.

Happy-New-Year-2013

If you have a desktop computer (or tower) and feel comfortable taking the side off, take the computer outside and blow it out with some canned air.  Also, if you get your desktop 6-10 inches off the floor it will significantly decrease the amount of dust pulled into the computer.

If you have a laptop, the best thing to do is locate the vent slots in the side or rear and blow canned air through those slots.  You should hear the little fan in the laptop spin up really fast if the air is going all the way through.  If you can’t hear or see the fan spin then you probably need to give Enfuse Technology a call so it can be disassembled and cleaned out.

Black Friday Computer Deals

Happy Thanksgiving from Enfuse Technology !

 

As we are nearing Black Friday, many friends, family members, clients, and strangers want to know the best computer deals for Christmas.  The staff has done some research, read the reviews, checked the ads, and put together a list of what we think the best deals are for this weekend.

 

A few caveats before we get into the list. 

  1. These are only our opinions. Other people may not agree with these deals and that is fine. It is possible, maybe even likely, that we missed a few really good deals.
  2. Our reviews and comments are based on the advertising by the retailer. 
  3. We focused on computers in the home, office, and every day use categories. If you are doing intensive programming, photo editing, gaming or other process intensive computing - these are not the computers you are looking for.
  4. We make mistakes.  The staff has not physically touched each computer on this list. We are relying on the information provided by others.
  5. We do not think the sub $300 and sub $200 computers found at some of the big box stores are worth reviewing.
