USB-C is the new 'ultra port' that can do everything. Charing, flash drives, printers, monitors, and more. The problem is a number of cheap cables are causing serious damage to equipment. So be careful when buying USB-C cables - reviews matter. No, you don't need to spend $1000 on Monster Cable's ridiculous cables, but a few extra dollars could be worth it.
Benson Leung, an engineer on Google’s Pixel team, was doing God’s work by risking his Chromebook Pixel, which charges via USB-C, to test every single USB-C to USB-A cord available to general consumers. One crappy cord, and his $1500 computer would be fried.

Using an ad blocker can help you stay safer online because they can block malicious ads that are becoming more and more popular. The concept that you only risk infection on 'bad' websites doesn't hold true anymore because hackers can inject malware on popular everyday websites via advertising networks. Most advertising network try to prevent malvertising, but it's a game of cat and mouse.
Even if you love online ads, you may very well run an adblocker for security...

Microsoft will no longer support older versions of Internet Explorer next week. This includes, IE9, the latest version available on Vista. So if you still have a computer with Vista (or XP!), you should NOT use IE. Instead, use a browser like Chrome or Firefox, which are still supported and updated.
It’s been a long time coming but, as of January 12th, Microsoft will no longer support Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10. Rest in peace, IE.

If you purchased a new Dell computer since this summer, you need to take action to remove a security certificate that could be used to compromise your computer via websites that appear authentic. Links to info from Dell are at the end of this article.
All new Dell laptops and desktops shipped since August 2015 contain a serious security vulnerability that exposes users to online eavesdropping and malware attacks. Dell says it is prepping a fix for the issue, but experts say the threat may ultimately need to be stomped out by the major Web ...

Microsoft is no longer providing security patches for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10. If you use MS Vista, you should switch to Firefox or Chrome. If you are still running Windows 8.0 (Not Windows 8.1), you should upgrade to Windows 8.1 ASAP (start the Store app and click on the purple free upgrade icon). Not sure what versions you are running? In IE, click the gear icon then About. To find what version of Windows you are running, hold the 'Windows' key and press 'R'. Type in 'control system' and click OK. You'll be presented with the current version of Windows that is running. Need help making sure you're secure online? IT Xpress can help!
It’s the end of the line for Windows 8.0 and Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10. With Microsoft pulling support on them today, it’s upgrade-or-get-hacked time.

With the crazy warm weather and kids out of school, how many of them are inside watching NetFlix or playing video games? Looking to discourage Internet use and get them outside (or keep them from staying up till 2 playing with their smartphone?) Here are some tips on how to use your router to 'encourage' them to go outside. Most useful? The schedule feature many routers have. Find the MAC Address for each of your kid's devices and then use that to temporarily turn off or schedule their Internet access...

IT Xpress will be open at 9AM Monday to help you with all of your post holiday technology needs!
You're in the middle of watching a late-night movie on Netflix with your spouse, when suddenly your Internet comes to a screeching halt, and the movie pauses and starts buffering for the next 20 minutes. It's enough to make you stick a needle in your eye. What causes this craziness? Why is the Internet connection…

A few users have been experiencing issues with wireless on Windows 10. First, make sure you have the latest wireless driver available for your computer. If that doesn't work and you still get 'Limited' when trying to connect, try this hotfix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3114149 Microsoft is pushing it out via Windows Update, but if you don't have it yet - you can manually install it to see if it helps. Still having issues? Give us a call at 336-525-5005 or email help@itxpress.biz

If you installed the big 'Build 1511' update for Windows 10 - there's a good chance many of the privacy and application default settings got reset to 'All Microsoft All The Time'. While MS says they are working to restore the user settings they overwrote, you may want to check yourself - http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/08/windows-10-doesnt-offer-much-privacy-by-default-heres-how-to-fix-it/
Microsoft has fixed major bugs with its latest update for Windows 10 - it's now easier to install too.

If you use Amazon - you can finally protect the account with two factor authentication.
Amazon has added multi-factor authentication to help customers better secure their accounts from hackers. With this new feature enabled, thieves would have to know your username, password, and have access to your mobile device or impersonate you to your mobile provider in order to hijack your ...

Thought that my hard drive was broken and that I needed to recover and replace the device. I did a search to find out what I should expect to pay and who might provide the service. The bid from IT Xpress came back as the lowest cost by far, so I brought my computer to them. IT Xpress ran a diagnosis, found the issue to be something else entirely. They fixed the problem at a cost far less than what I expected to pay for a recovery service, let alone a new hard drive. Lesson learned, don't assume. Take the computer to an expert. And I can think of no better an expert than Mike Baptiste the owner of IT Xpress. What I particularly appreciated about the service was after the repair was completed Mike did some clean up and corrected some setting to make certain that my computer ran better than before and would continue to run efficiently.

I have an antique laptop and it did not connect to the Internet at all.It was repaired in a reasonable amount of time, price was certainly fair, advice was great and I believe honest, and it seems to operate much faster.Yes, I would recommend to anyone, and will certainly use for all my computer issues.

They did a thorough job at finding all of the kinks in my computer and made sure I understood the problems. Price was great too and their recommendations actually saved me money. Definitely will trust this shop with future needs and will refer to friends/family.

Mike Baptiste is knowledgeable, fair and honest both in pricing and problem solving for a "not so tech savvy," highly budget conscious business owner. Being a photographer and MAC user, Mike took on the daunting task of setting up a secure onsite as well as off-site back-up for thousands of files, huge in size. He re-networked my entire studio .Implemented a workflow and help manage switching from PC's to MAC's. Most recently Mike came to my rescue when I had what could have been a financially devastating hard-drive failure. He spent time researching and applying that knowledge to get me back up and running with little to no downtime. Highly recommend using IT Xpress, for all your business networking and computer needs.

Mike has always provided me with the best service I could ever expect. His knowledge of his craft is remarkable and he has always been able to "fix" any issue we had with promptness and efficiency. Even with some of the most challenging issues we have had regarding networking computers, printers, and cameras, Mike can and WILL take care of it. I highly recommend you call IT Xpress if you have any computer needs, big or small.
