Windows Security Update

It appears that Google has found some serious issues in Symantec security software products so users of this Norton software may want to consider purchasing a Fixme Stick to clean their computers of unwanted malicious software.

I’ve tried the latter and it’s great. Easy to use to clean out the junk that’s missed by most anti-virus software.

Symantec will likely be working on correcting this issue soon so Norton users should keep those updates recent.

By the way, if you were planning on upgrading your PC’s operating system to Windows 10 you have until July 29th, 2016 to do it for free. An upgrade cost you $120 afterwards, more if you upgrade to Pro.

Most users of the previous operators systems will be prompted to upgrade through-out the month, some with full screen warnings.
