Greetings from EagleTech Computer Service!

If you haven't noticed you soon will...Microsoft is testing a new Internet Browser version 9 beta.  It is in beta testing because the bugs aren't yet worked out in it.  For this reason I highly recommend you not attempt to install it on your computer.  It only works with Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, so if you have Windows XP Internet Explorer 9 will never be for you.

Also, for those of you using the antivirus program AVG, you have probably noticed that they are starting to push AVG 2011.  Once again...a bit buggy still.  I recommend you hold off on installing it until around March of 2011.  This should give them enough time to iron out the program conflicts it causes.  Until then they are continuing to support version 9 with daily updates, so you will still receive protection with your AVG antivirus program.

If you have installed Adobe Flash and Reader, as well as Java, on your computer and you receive offers for updates for these programs, they, along with the security updates that Microsoft is offering, are very important updates.  The virus hackers are going crazy trying to infect your computers, so you will want the security patches these three programs offer.

For Microsoft updates just open your Internet Explorer, choose "Tools" from the top menu, and then "Windows Updates" from the drop menu.

For Adobe Flash and Reader, go to and download their Flash and Reader programs.

For Java, go to and download their newest version of Java.

I continue recommending that you use Sandboxie, from  It is a terrific virus protection.

Much of my service time is involved in removing viruses from my client's computers, so the attacks are very real and very frequent.

Best of success to you in all your computing.
I’m here to assist you when you need it.  My onsite residential fee is still $23/hr and for the commercial setting it is $30/hr.
Once again...for any clients you send my way, who use my services for an hour or more, I'd be happy to credit you with a 1/4 hour of free computer service.  Do let me know if you send folks my way and I'll keep notes on that as a credit for my next visit to you.
Thanks so much!
Your Computer Technician
Tom Sparks
