Go Back to School. Is Your IT Equipment Ready?

IT Support in Essex: That’s right, the six-weeks are almost finally over and before you know it, thousands of children all across the UK will be getting their book bags, ready to learn. But, have you made sure your IT equipment is ready to handle the pressure after a long break? 39 Degress Services, Essex have made a checklist to prevent IT breakdowns at the start of the new school year.

Is Your Network Suited to Handle the Number of Users?

Firstly, a computer network is a set of hardware connected together for the purpose of sharing resources. Most schools have a shared drive that gives teachers and their pupils quick access to worksheets and information. However, how do you know you’re using the right one?

Local Area Network (LAN)- A local area network is a computer network best suited to work at a single site such as a school or office. LAN’s are very useful for sharing resources such as printers and photocopiers as well as document sharing. So if you’re a school, it’s recommended you use this.

Have You Got the Best Security in Place?

With recent events, it’s important more so now than ever to protect your school from hackers and data attacks. Simple precautions can be put in place to protect your equipment, such as:

Anti-Virus and Malware You can’t monitor which sites everyone is on all of the time, but you can install anti-virus and malware to prevent any nasty viruses spreading amongst your network. The level you wish to use this software at can vary greatly- however, for a school. It is highly recommended you choose the highest level of protection to be extra cautious.

Data Recovery If damage occurs to either the internal or external hard drives. You may potentially lose vital information and records. 39 Degress Services fortunately offer a data recovery service, so you can rest assured all of your records are safe with us.

That’s Ghost, IT Support in Essex, top recommendations to check ahead of the new academic year starts. If you would like more information on the services we can provide, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

BBC released information yesterday about the latest move from Microsoft which at face value forces you to you your Windows 7 Operating System the the latest Windows 10 version. 
 
The notification box appears as normal. However if you close the notification box using the ‘X’ in the top right hand corner, the notification disappears but the update takes place when you next reboot your machine regardless if you wish to do so or not. Essentially you are agreeing to the scheduled update as opposed to closing the notification which has been the case in the past.
 
Brad Chacos, senior editor at the PC World website, described it as a “nasty trick”.

“Deploying these dirty tricks only frustrates long-time Windows users who have very valid reasons to stick with operating systems they already know and love,” he wrote.

There is a way to avoid this update, simply click OK which will take you to the next screen, which then allows you to schedule the update for another time or not at all.

GHOST’S BUSINESS NETWORKING EVENT HAILED AS ‘GREAT SUCCESS’

A business networking event held by Ghost Computer Services Limited has been hailed a ‘Great Success’ by both organisers and visitors.

 

The Harlow Company set up their ‘tech-based’ event held on the 24th of February. Entitled, ‘New Technology For 2016’. It aimed to bring together members of the local business community in an informal, welcoming environment and encourage them to create new, potentially beneficial contacts.

 

Ghost offer state-of-the-art ‘cloud’ and IT services and support to businesses in London and Essex. Unfortunately, Ghost’s MD, Matthew Southgate was unable to attend having been involved in a car accident prior to the event. Claire Aspell, Head of Operations at Ghost, said: ‘Matthew was hospitalized after the accident but insisted that we carried on in his absence. He’s recovering well and is very pleased with the outcome”.

 

Ghost Computer Services were supported by Paul Turner of Ladybird Communications Ltd and David Hilling of Active Security Ltd, who bought their specific knowledge to the meeting and displayed some of the new technological advances in their respective fields. They were very well received.

 

More than 35 business owners from Harlow, Sawbridgeworth and Bishop’s Stortford attended. Steve Chew, of local marketing firm Magnificent Stuff, said: ‘Claire and her team have done a brilliant job. The atmosphere was excellent and I saw numerous business cards being exchanged. SMEs in Harlow can only benefit from more business networking events like this one’

 

Ms Aspell went on to say: ‘the feedback has been very positive. We will certainly be having further networking events in the future, perhaps quarterly or every second month.’
